Applescal – FWD106

Sounds pretty much like a modern-day version of what D-Nox played at VooV’s second floor on those unforgettable Sunday afternoons in the early noughties… Well done, Mr. Applescal – very well done.

Jon Hopkins – Singularity

Jon Hopkins’ last album would have been the perfect terminus for a musical career that burns out rather than fading away. However, he faced the extremely high anticipations and released another album. Singularity might not be quite as groundbreaking and innovative as the last album – but it surely is a worthy successor. Ecstasy and…

Yagya – Auditory 05

Fact described Yagya as “one of Techno’s best-kept secrets” some years ago. Here the Icelandic producer takes us on a melodic journey from beatless Ambient to Downbeat to Dub Techno and back.

Arne, one half of the German duo formerly known as Spirallianz and Midimiliz, delivers a deeply hallucinogenic DJ mix that takes some pleasantly unexpected turns.

Alex Banks – June 2015 Mix
