Paris-based producer Mehen (aka Hadone) will release a new EP, ‘Imperfections In The Sun’, via LA label Amniote Editions. You can hear the title track below.
Across four tracks, Mehen sculpts fast, melodic and melancholic techno in the same universe as his acclaimed 2019 EP for the label, ‘I’ve Heard A Lot About Harmony’. Nimble kicks and scorched electronics prime the first three tracks for the dancefloor, while closer ‘Her Revolver's Eye Shot Me Down’ is a spaced out cut of skipping drums, breaks and Aphex Twin Druqksisms that knocks on the door of d&b.
Portland label Sublimate Records will release a new V/A compilation later this month, titled ‘Reclamation’.
Brighton label Mr Bongo has enlisted Harvey Sutherland and Masters At Work to remix tracks from Melbourne jazz and funk outfit Surprise Chef.

Shawn Cartier returns to London label Childsplay this month with the 'ALIEN FLOPPY DISK EMBARGO' EP.
Following last year’s dazzlingly off-kilter release, ‘Crazy Boy’, Cartier dishes up five more cuts of weird rave material, sprinting from alien electro and hyperactive, acid-tinged techno and back again, all in perfect pace with the label’s high-energy and neon-hued aesthetic. You can hear the opening track, ‘STONK ME’, below.

Los Angeles-based Mexican-American producers DJ Angeldu$t and 138 will release a new split EP on Christchurch, New Zealand label, HAVEN, this month.
The vinyl only release, ‘The Clubhouse Archives’, will feature five cuts that were previously shared digitally on the artists’ own Bandcamps. Spanning tough industrial techno and sizzling electro, it’s the sort of white label release that feels liable to explode on the turntable. It’s a hefty dose of no nonsense dancefloor ferocity.
Listen to DJ Angeldu$’st ‘Fuck That Shit’ below.
