Xorcore – Number Stations LP [Rekkt]

Israeli producer Xorcore is back this month with his first LP release for Rekkt Rekkords, and the release features a great selection of tech-edged D&B and a couple of tidy remixes to boot.

Struct kicks things off with the album’s heaviest track, laying down a dangerous neuro banger, but Dead Zone immediately switches things up with hypnotic synth lines and deep sub bass; moody roller vibes. Other highlights include the glitch and IDM influenced later tracks Out of the Machine and That’s All, both of which show a talent for complex arrangements and sonic detail.

Number Stations is a powerful statement of intent from a young producer with plenty to offer the scene. The LP is out on Feb 14th; hit up Beatport to pre-order the album now.

Premiere: Telomic – Control (Revaux Remix)

Revaux are at the controls for today’s exclusive as they serve up a dirty tech remix of Telomic’s Control. Swapping the subtle rolling vibes of the original for a harder hitting arrangement, this one has grit, depth and more than enough heft for the dancefloor. Look for this alongside remixes from Aperio, Victim & Akomplis exclusively at Beatport from today, with other stores following on the 23rd.

Premiere: Lewis James – Clash

Irish imprint Rua Sound continue their journey to the cutting edge of experimental D&B with a fresh EP from Lewis James. Clash melds a host of different influences, with soft, evocative synths on the intro giving way to darker elements as the tune drops into a weighty slab of jungle-infused halftime. Skittering drums and a big bad bassline are present and correct and the arrangement eschews the traditional “intro-verse-breakdown-verse-outro” format in favour of a gradual build and then a gradual fade, something we don’t see nearly enough of in the rigid structures of modern dance music. Watch out for the EP coming March 2nd at all good stores…

Premiere: Oxius – Nexus 6

Long standing UK techstep imprint AutomAte return this month after a fairly lengthy hiatus with new music from French producer Oxius! Providing more of that dark, gritty, futuristic sound that the label has built a solid reputation for pushing, Oxius comes correct with precision beats and interesting drum patterns, and of course plenty of hefty bass distortion. Check it out below and watch for the release dropping Feb 20th.
