Marco Bernardi - Preacher Teacher (buy)

Some typically twisted electro courtesy of Marco Bernardi on this track on from a few years back. Super vocal sample used that really kicks off half way in.

Photonz - Our Fable (buy)

Taken from Photonz debut ep back in 2006 on Living Records, Our Fable gives out some sinister slo-mo vibes. Photonz more recently have been having great joy with some super remixes for Semtek and The Heels Of Love and of course running their own One Eyed Jacks label to release such killers as this.

Photonz - Aquarian Ball (buy)

A couple of Belgian tracks to finish today, taken from the Underground Belgian Wave Volume 1 compilation which puts together some stunning and obscure cold wave tracks originally released on cassette in the mid-80s.

Asmodaeus - Radiation Dance (buy)

Schicksal - Time (buy)

Progressively aggressive techno by Rocco Caine.

Unit Moebius - Duplovision (buy)

Unit Moebius - Ecology (buy)

Taken from Clone Classic Cuts reissue of Unit Moebius tracks, The Golden Years is a collection of the legendary Dutch acts tracks from 1993 to 1997. So good.

Peter Horrevorts - Siren (buy)

Peter Horrevorts slows down the pace for this track taken from his new EP on Be Real entitled Birthschoolworkdeath. Quite possibly my favourite track of his to date, and that's saying something.

Grimm Limbo - Fortune Favors The Brave (buy)

Coco Bryce & Jon Lemmon - Furr (Remix) (buy)

Finishing off today's decidedly Dutch post are these two tracks taken from Shipwrec's compilation for Club Oddstream.

From one mix to another. I've been hammering Ata's mix for Live At Robert Johnson that was released a while back. An impeccably curated choice of new wave, post-punk and italo tracks, one of which is this early 80s hit by Grauzone.

Grauzone - Raum (Ata's Extended Mix) (buy)

Chris & Cosey three minute wonder.

Chris & Cosey - This Is Me

Unclassifiable music can be the most satisfying, Mordant Music's album from 2009 for example.

Shakarchi & Stranéus - Iraq (buy)

Shakarchi & Stranéus - Liseberg (buy)

Shakarchi & Stranéus
are the Gothenburg duo who first caught my attention with their debut 12" on Geography last year, on this release they put some special touches to what at first sounded like a pretty straightforward deep techy house workout before their sense of atmosphere and pace grabs you and you soon realise they are anything but your run of the mill production duo. I think this fact has been reinforced by their appearance on one of the more exciting labels out there right now, Studio Barnhus. The label is run by Axel Boman, Petter and Kornel Kovacs, three guys whose impeccable and diverse taste has shone through in the first releases on Studio Barnhus. Originally vinyl only releases they are now slowly going digi.

R-A-G - Rage (Spaventi & Aroy Raw Mix) (buy)

This is a deliciously old school acid jam by Aroy Dee and Spaventi for R-A-G's Rage release on MOS.

Dorisburg - Emotion (buy)

Back to Gothenburg with Dorisburg, who took time out from the Aniara label to contribute to the Family Horror compilation released on Kann. A selection of deep and dark house and techno tracks from the likes of Efdemin and Even Tuell, seriously essential listening!

Stephen Beaupre - Gl'amour (buy)

An epic track that just oozes class. Taken from It's Gl'amour When You Have It - released on Musique Risquée earlier this year.
