Covering Tracks is a regular series in which we ask our favorite producers and DJs to recommend ten new (and not so new) releases.
Tommy Four Seven curated today’s column, which arrives just a few short hours before his headlining set at Arena Club in Berlin tonight, October 10.
Perc – “Tri-City” [Stroboscopic Artefacts]
Explosive and floor pumping. Perc always lives up to his high quality output.
Yuji Kondo – “Unvanquishable Number ” [Perc Trax]
I met Yuji Kondo a few years back in Osaka and was totally blow away by his live set. His tracks stand out a mile off, and they melt minds.
Chemotex – “Schrade Knives” [The Trilogy Tapes]
This is a pure noise and bass assault moment. Love it.
Kwartz – “Breakage (Exium Remix)” [Pole Group]
Kwartz has been on fire recently with a string of essential dance floor bombs. Here, Exium step up and add their hypnotic assault.
Thomas P Heckman – “So Schön War Die Zeit (Al Ferox Remix)” [AFU Limited]
Al Ferox remixes a 2000 Heckman classic into a full-on rave synth work-out!
Ritzi Lee – “S.O.S.” [Belief System]
Another fine slab of proper techno.
Mike Parker – “Lustration Three (Atlantic) (Svreca Remix)” [Prologue]
Mike Parker has one of the most distinguishable sounds in techno, and Semantica label boss Svreca really reworked his intense synth pattern, adding further spacial dimensions.
Ugandan Methods & Prurient – “Call 3” [Downwards]
Ancient Methods, Regis and Vatican Shadow on Downwards. Enough said.
SHXCXCHCXSH – “This Hmming Raverie” [Avian]
Taken from their recent album on Avian, which is essential listening. In fact, all their records are essential.
Inigo Kennedy – “NGC5128” [Token]
I’m a big Inigo Kenedy fan, and this track has graced many closing sets. It’s alway a pleasure to see people’s reactions when the bass rhythm falls into the spaced-out pads.
