For our German listeners or anyone who just wants to wrap their teeth around some superb sounding punk. Check out Audiolith’s Egotronic and their new album ‘Keine Argumente’.

Beyun
Axiom EP (Jack Trax Records)
Techno

Are you brave enough to detach the authority of society in search of Truth? This debut release from Beyun will postulate this trip you call life is both internal and external. Inherent are its paradoxes, scattered truths, and essential polarities. Once you listen you’ll experience a multidimensional introduction of what’s to come for both this new artist and the emerging Jack Trax imprint from Afro Acid. ‘Paradox’ is a heavy jackin techno thumper with a bassline growing more distorted as your reality breaks down. ‘Scatter’ lightens the mood with a blend of jazzy scat vocals amidst a heavy thump…!

Joel Mull & Heiko Laux
Rooter EP (Kanzleramt Music)
Techno

Joel Mull finally re-joins the Kanzleramt Family in a collab with Heiko Laux called ‘Rooter’. This is Joel’s second appearance on Kanzleramt after his very much loved solo 12″ ‘Reminder’ in 2006. It’s also not the first release of the two, as last years Drumcode limited release ‘Slight Munch’ shows. Joel and Heiko have been friends for over a decade. The depth of that connection is reflected in ‘Rooter’ as much of this release was realised right at the kitchen table over breakfast or with a wine while cooking dinner. More parts of those sessions will be following!
