After a strong second year of releases that included contributions from Mark Broom and EDMX, as well as several releases from label founder Milo Smee, the first Power Vacuum release of introduces five new artists on a split release. Although the highlight for many will be a rare track from Objekt, the angular shock and awe techno of "Balloons", the rest of the contributions are equally great. Turbo's latest recruits Joe Farr and J. Tijn team up for the steamroller that is "Mustard Sucker" while Ukrainian hard techno producer Positive Merge delivers the relentless gabber-esque stomp of "Note", but perhaps the most eye-catching inclusion is the new An-i project from Lee Douglas that recently debuted on Minimal Wave's sister label Cititrax, with the ex-TBD man delivering the scrambled frequencies of "Convo".
In a word: essential. Russian Torrent Versions 7. Russian Torrent Versions. Apartment Six. The Dublin label's sixth release here looks to shine the light on some of the music talent currently bubbling away in the Irish city and the results are impressive.
First up is a remix of the aforementioned TR One from recent Hivern singing New Jackson, who moulds the bruising techno of "Viceroy-9c" into a more breakbeat led acid cut. Fusion Of Thoughts. Originally from Hanover in Germany, Vril has been a mainstay of the Weimar label's many projects since surfacing on and subsequently the techno-minded Staub series, as well as being the one Giegling artist to venture outside the comfort zone with releases for techno outposts Delsin and Semantica.
Vril has now returned to home base with a surprise debut album Torus on the Forum sub label that served up Prince of Denmark's much loved album The Body. Vril's productions combine elements of booming dub techno with murky reflections of rave with his own patented and progressive synth sound. Torus sees Vril deliver more of this, but he's also extended the remit on this album to include other elements of dance music, with what sounds like Clone-inspired west coast electro, Chicago house and flashes of Adam X-industrialisms.
The title track combines Mulero's trademark throb and reverb-heavy ambience with powerful drums, while "Cave" takes things in an even darker direction, with brittle percussion resonating against reverb-heavy ambience.
The remixes aren't too shoddy either; Our Circula Sound boss Sigha delivers a remix of the title track with some prickly yet powerful synth blips, and Tommy Four Seven coats "Cave" with an industrial fuzz and into a broken techno nightmare which will destroy any dancefloor.
