It’s time to look back at the last month’s best releases within techno, tech house and minimal before we move too far into October. Here in Australia spring has finally sprung and more and more exciting events are popping up. I’ve been inspired by fellow DJs out on the dance floor as well as online music magazines, my Soundcloud stream and label release notifications to track down these top 10 from September 2015.
First out is A1 Bassline’s new track Swathe that is just breathing nice techno and acid vibes and grabs you straight away. ‘Removes Me’ by Matt Lange really impressed me as well and has been great music production inspiration. On third place is Sei A with ‘Hyper Venom’ that I heard at the Melbourne Techno Collective gig at the beginning of the month. The dark, rolling bassline really called on me together with that evil low pitched voice.
Nicole Moudaber got into this chart list too with her remix of Scuba’s ‘Too Strong’. Man, that chick knows how to make some great beats! A great track taken just that step further into awesomeness. Two more remixes has taken spot 5 and 7, the first one which is Matthias Meyer and Patlac’s take on Wayne Duggan’s Experiment 1 and the second one an Ostgut Ton release remixed by The Black Madonna.
In between these is the bumpy, fun tech house track by Zeké Africa on Moda Black with a playful chord progression in minimal styled beats. ‘My Voice’ is the starting track in his latest EP titled ‘The Fires Of Time’. We also have the Upon You Records release ‘Overdeus’ on the ‘Leo Dance’ EP made by the French F.E.X. A great build up of soundscapes around a trippy and studdy synth stab melody that travels through the whole song.
Lastly we have two more low-key tracks by Andre Lodemann and Call Super. The first released on Innervisions and the second on Houndstooth records. Two solid deep techno tracks that could be great starts onto an awesome night on the dance floor.
