Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell is to release his first album in 13 years, next month.
The nine-track 'Raw Tones' follows on from 2008's 'Corresponding Echoes', which came out on Claussell's own Sacred Rhythm Music label. The new album is set to be released through Radio Slave's Rekids imprint.
Michigan DJ and producer Disruptive Pattern Material will debut on Rekids this week with the rolling melodic techno cut, ‘Necessary’.
Butch by name, knowingly camp by nature (at least in his press shots), the German producer christened Bülent Gürler is best known for his 2010 First Choice sampling hit 'No Worries' but has had releases for the likes of Trapez, Noir and Rekids, showing the value placed on his floor-filling, and often quirky, house.
When thinking of Siberia you're imagination is more likely to turn to endless tundra than techno clubs, the Russian region, which covers 10 percent of the Earth's surface more attuned to the Trans-Siberian Railway than the electronic offspring of Trans-Europe Express. Yet the latest edition to DJ Kicks' ever-excellent mix series, put together by Nina Kraviz (who originally hails from the Siberian city of Irkutsk), shines with a deep knowledge of Detroit techno, Chicago house and beyond.
