Vakula - Moon Over Moscow (buy)

Ukranian house producer Vakula continues to show his talent this time with a track for The Helping Hand sampler for House Is The Cure. Sits perfectly alongside Alex Agore and co.

Conforce - Black Stroke (buy)

This is the title track off Conforce's EP on Modelisme, such a solid release with remix from KiNK & Neville Watson and a super old school house vibe on the b-side.

Rau - The Blessing (buy)

You might have heard Vril on here before. Well Rau is the follow up on Giegling. More really great dubby techno.

MRSK - Black Keith (buy)

On a similar tip is this by MRSK. Swedish dub techno keeps getting better.

To finish a few bits of techno with their sounds firmly rooted in the past.

And something from one of the fathers of the genre, an incredible 18 minute piece by Klaus Schulze recorded for Innervision's Muting The Noise Compilation. Epic.

Show-B - Jammin (Black Label Edit) (buy)

Show-B put this track in his compilation that made Compost Black Label Series Vol.4. It's a really strong compilation with other great tracks from Jay Shepheard, Roland Appel and Pilooski to name a few.

Laolu - O Fantasma (buy)

A dazzling debut by Laolu. Haunting tech house with that South American/Latin vocal thing going on. Really good. Reminds me a bit of Kadebostan which is funny because I think it actually might be Kadebostan?

Bit of a banger.

Automatic Tasty - Signing In

Irish producer Automatic Tasty has just put out a super new 12" on Lunardisko, really recommended for fans of that Clone-centric electro-house sound.

Fred P. - It Is What It Is (buy)

Taken from Strength Music's delightful Semesters II. There's just something about this that makes me go all funny, beautiful.

TR-One - Bombay (buy)

Back to Ireland and TR-One's EP out on POGO. Really lush and emotive music that goes from sounding like BoC to slow house jazziness without ever feeling out of place.

Taragana Pyjarama - Girls

Sensational music for the setting summer sun. This is a beautifully paced woozy house track by the talented Danish producer Nick Eriksen. Taragana Pyjarama is a new project for Eriksen who has also been getting a lot of positive attention for his work as Eim Ick. I'm really excited to hear more! A worthy addition to Denmark's exciting electronic movement. Eim Ick will have a 12" out shortly on the impeccable Hivern Discs, the label has also just released Hivern A Lestiu Vol II a compilation celebrating two years of existence, you can read more about it on their blog.

youANDme - I Like (buy)

youANDme's second release on the CUTZ.ME label. This is pretty essential. The vocals come from Moodymann's interview at the Red Bull Music Academy earlier this year, top stuff.

Karraskilla - Expreso Cali (buy)

Warped bass and melodramatic synths make this a winner. Lovely work from the Colombian's Karraskilla and Biatch Corp.

I love the city of Krakow and surely it can only be made better still when you have musicians of the calibre and variety on offer at Unsound Festival this October. Seriously, check out the line up, and consider booking yourself a cheap flight.

Jason Fine - Control Voltage (Oni Ayhun Remix) (buy)
