Traversable Wormhole - Stargates

Traversable Wormhole (aka Adam X) return eight years since their last album for some more sci-fi techno with the album Regions of Time which sparkles like intergalactic energy pulses.

The final track  Stargates slows things down a little (which track would you expect QLB to pick?!) with a dirty breakbeat layered under swirling arpeggios to create a vibey dark monster of a track.

Side note: if you're in New York this Thanksgiving, Adam X and MAEDON are playing at Bossa Nova on Nov 28 (free entry before 12). It's a lineup so good that it makes me consider cancelling Thanksgiving with the fam so I can stay in town.

This classic 2013 track from the prolific Amsterdam producer  popped up this week on the Kollektor compilation Acid in My System Pt. 2. A dirty mix of EBM, 90s rave and acid, I Set Fires to Feel Joy sounds just as fresh six years later

Drvg Cvltvre - I Set Fires to Feel Joy was released in 2013 on Radio Kobayashi  [BUY]

mode_alone (aka Bryan Mette) keeps things acid with Possessing Little / Less Possessed, blending chirpy acid lines and dark textured drones. Listen out for how it plays with mixed straight and swung hi-hat patterns.

Amsterdam-based producer Gamma Intel brings some whipsmart EBM with their latest four track EP. The dark grooves of Fata M is the standout track for me.

Low-key acid vibes here from the mysterious Lungo. The broken-beat kick section two-thirds of the way through is a great touch.

Lungo - Tons is out now on 7th Cloud [BUY]

A little bit acid, a little bit dub, a little bit tech, Fausto Trusso Sfrazzetto's Aliens in Stromboli is hard to describe but I love it.
