going further into techno territory, orphan swords come back with a three tracks ep called -license to desire- on paris-based desire records. following the -risk in the new age- ep (2014), this new hypnotic release is probably their most powerful so far, concentrating ebm, minimal techno gristle and industrial electronics. this ep clearly relates to previous efforts such as -caim- that has been described by xlr8r as -the grinding sounds and whirling blasts of white noise position the track directly in the realm of acts like sandwell district and richie hawtin s digressive and hypnotizing plastikman moniker.- make sure to check out the massive epic of asmoday and the textural sophistication of hooker .

the annyjack label goes from strength to strength and is gaining a seriously loyal fanbase who are fans of its subtle snth and pad laden tech house grooves. this 4 track release offers some very nice flavours with the a1 side track being a cool dancefloor track with its sophisticated string parts and nice bassline. the a2 again has a nice grooving feel with its arpeggiated synth riff. the b side really stands out here with its extremely classy minimal feel and spaced out parts
