Sitting in a London park yesterday on a perfect July afternoon, I told my friend that should I have to choose one particular genre of electronica to listen to, it would probably be tech house. Preferably, it’s dark and industrial, yet warm. I also love inventive funky elements, bombastic loops and tucks. This is why I love the new track from Metope called ‘Partizan’, a sound which reflects the party elements of the famous Serbian football team’s home city. It kicks and splutters like an elastic band, a whistling synth juxtaposed with seriously analogue bass. Further, the second track on the EP - ‘Ghost’ - is delightful. Half way through a piano emerges from the deconstructed ether, but retains enough abrasion to reinforce the track’s ghostly ideology.

Second up, we have a bit of disjointed house from Call Super. While some of the output on the Staircase EP is not quite my bag, I love opening track ‘And It Was’, a funky, syncopated and arpeggiated riddim.

After repeated searches on a variety of sites, I’ve finally discovered an online avenue for BLM’s little-known track ‘Delharmonic’ on the Roll ‘Em EP. It’s an absolutely mesmerizing slow burner of techno, rising from an Emeralds-esque aurora to jut it’s beat. It’s just the most perfect early evening track, as the clouds enclose a warm glow on the windows of the city.
