Egg Wizard Reminiscent of the global + UK underground soundsystem sound of R&S, Warp, Harthouse and allied sounds at their (or my!) peak in the mid to late 1990's. Great depth and warmth while simultaneously galvanising, and brilliantly produced. Bravo. Favorite track: Gabby In Manarola.

Soloman Tump LoveLove gone done it again. Fantastic variety of dancefloor techno with roots equally planted in the club and underground rave scenes. Tracks evolve and surprise in equal measures, never standing still (unlike the corn on the cover) Favorite track: Gabby On The Beach.

Manchester born Miike Hayward AKA The Teknoist has been experimenting with the hardcore end of techno/tekno for nearly two decades putting out releases with veteran labels like Deathchant, Planet Mu, Ad Noiseam, Rebel Scum and via his own imprint Ninja Columbo.

‘Maximal Techno’ is the debut album from Miike under his ‘Technoist’ moniker and his first foray onto Love Love Records, exploring the versatility that can be found in slower tempos and deeper grooves. This is by no means traditional techno however with influences taken from all over the dance music landscape - Chunky kicks, big breaks, dubby licks, raw chops and epic electronica-style melodies.

A more personal affair than other work of his, this album covers a wide range of feeling from aggression to introspection across ten tracks (eleven including the bonus track!) set to move the minds and feet of heady revellers. Despite its eclecticism Maximal Techno is in essence powerful dance music primed for the party, full of rushing euphoria reminiscent of early techno floorfillers on labels such as R&S and Warp.
