Marcel Dettmann's second Ostgut full-length is no less rigorous than its title: Seven uncompromising techno tracks are interspersed with austere and dubby sound experiments and Emika-collab 'Seduction' as a dramatic centerpiece. Don't mistake stringency for boredom though: This is a killer album!

Ancient Methods, Marcel Dettmann, Rivet, Mondkopf
Shining a light into the dark corners of our souls, underground techno with an edge is the theme of this week's update. Freely quoting dubstep and industrial, electronica and house next to the style's Detroit roots, techno has become more difficult to pinpoint more...
