The Marx Trukker – Tape Be Good To You EP /// Greta Cottage Workshop
A discordant balance between
atmospheric melodic sounds
and harder bass…
Words: Natasha Stokes
Dub techno has become an amorphous phrase, basically the genre given to those analogue experiments on the electronic 4/4. The Marx Trukker is one of those treading the far left of classic, maintaining form with techno basslines textured by crackles and tape delays, and a clear addiction to analogue noise makers.

Amirali – In Time /// Crosstown Rebels
Crosstown’s newest rebel proving to be an architect of sound…
Words: Natasha Stokes
A relative newcomer to the exploding Crosstown Rebels label, Amirali managed to catch the attention of head Rebel Damian Lazarus with nary a commercial release, while studying for his architecture degree.

Prompt Live Band – Harmonic Tribes /// Highgrade Records
Majestically balancing the compact electronic sounds with the improvisation of jazz…
Words: Dante Kotsinas
The relationship between electronic music and jazz is not at all new. It actually dates back to the 1980′s, when the melding of the first with African American music styles like Chicago house, funk and electronic jazz gave birth to early techno. Those early influences of jazz can be found in the work of artists like Kraftwerk, fuelling later distinctive references to jazz with tracks like “Jazz Is The Teacher” and “High Tech Jazz”.

EDA – Get Busy Boys EP /// Unplëased Records
A truly organic sound…
Words: Hector Westropp
To many, the French born ‘EDA’ is a relative unknown. In terms of success, his achievements to date are relatively low-key; some festivals and appearances on DJ sites and a few higher end parties around Europe. I would urge you, however, to not write off the name all that fast if you know what’s good for you; sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to find a truly organic sound the likes of which EDA produces in such abundance.
