Untitled - Musumeci - Mannequin

The latest release on Mannequin sees Musumeci drop two noisy, lo-fi workouts. Of the tracks, ‘Untitled 1’ is the more visceral, its screeching waves of vocals and feedback verging on the unlistenable, while the second untitled track is funkier, with a punky strut. The main reason that they feature on the techno page is due to Nation boss Traxx’s edit of ‘Tag Fuer Tag', a track from last year’s Musumeci album. A bleak electronic groove and powerful dubbed-out drums underscore the depraved shrieks. 

Lost feat Trim - Ziro - Crazylegs

Some people tell me that “man, I just don’t listen to lyrics” when they listen to music and whilst I appreciate their outlook I can’t abide it. And I’ve gotta be honest and say when you’ve got an emcee of Trim’s calibre riding a beat in his inimitably awkward, slow drawl way, the beat often feels secondary, but Ziro’s taut snare splattered production on ‘Lost’ matches Trim’s half chuckled mutters of “darkside” perfectly. More please.

Last Moonlight - Kay Stone & Darkmoon - Breathe Music

Neither Kay Stone nor Darkmoon have moved on much stylistically in their time away. For fans of their measured melodica and never-too-overt/overeager uplifting sound, that should come as welcome enough news.

Never Leaving - Audiotricz feat Miss Palmer - Scantraxx

This new hot hardstyle duo have been delivering hit after hit this year. Now signed to Scantraxx Records, they are part of the next generation of acts pushing through the ranks, soon to be headliners in their own right. This new release shows their skills as producers, with an infectious catchy vocal steering away from the obvious, combined with uplifting melodies and impeccable production techniques.
