Terrorhythm Elements Topaz - Laetho & Abu Simbel - Terrorhythm

The third release in a series of releases under the ‘Elements’ tag finds the Belgian talent known as Leatho making dubstep in that very specific Bristol sound championed by the likes of Joker, Guido and Gemmy — so expect lots of dreamy, thrilling synth action, twisted R&B vocals and references to “purple” things.

Trippin' EP - Caldera - Cut Records

A considered and refined four-track EP from this newcomer hailing from the eastwolds of Germany’s Duilsand. Cut from a cloth soaked in the roots of German dub-space and techno, the productions are filled with warm reverb, rounded echo and a sense of commitment which makes it feel very lucid — no matter which tempo he picks. A strong debut.

You Turn Me On/Ancient Times - Jeancy/Astarius - Invisible City Editions

Canadian reissue outfit, Invisible City Editions, dig one level deeper to unearth this brace of cosmic, tropical disco oddities. ‘You Turn Me On’ is a curious, minimal production that loops primitive drum machine sequences beneath heavily delayed vocals; originally surfacing in 1983 on the hugely obscure Canadian disco label, Neige. On the B-side, they’ve even found a rare recording from Hawaii’s disco past — the utterly oddball ‘Ancient Times’ by Astarius — of which I have zero information on. Top sleuthing.

Savan EP - Cain - Fine Grains

The second EP from this producer on Fine Grains, the first inspired by Slavic nightmares, whereas this one transports itself in the opposite direction to the southern Asiatic lands of India. And boy, do you know it. The six tracks are a superb cacophony of exotic riddims spiced with expert bass manoeuvres, with a respectful reference to Indian culture and ambience. Slackk and Morgan Zarate chip in decent remixes to boot.
