The second of Evgeny Pozharnov's two-part debut album strikes as tough as the first, a grim urban vision enacted with jump-up seething electro razor-synths and roving stylistically across late-dubstep, neo-electro, acid and euro-techno. Perhaps rebellion for the Boys Noize generation, a couple of alright tracks here.

Berlin-based Finns Renaissance Man drop their latest via Tiga's Turbo imprint, this time taking their versatile production style firmly into the direction of grungy, analogue electro and broken techno. The rough edges become 'Call2Call' extremely well and the EP should be prove a hit between The Hague and Bristol.

Russian producer Proxy presents the first part of his debut album, the raw rave energy of his idols the Prodigy apparent. His production talent nimbly flitting between breakcore, drum'n'bass, the noisiest sawtooth dubstep with ethnics twists. If you still live with your parents, this one will definitely rile them.

Another confident showing by Sei A, who mixes Terrence-Fixmer-style Berghain techno with dubstep elements and chiptune bleeps. Add a pumping, rumbling Martyn remix for a highly recommended package.
