The 20 Most Essential Tips for the Dancefloor
1984 classic reissued by Rush Hour which does its thing just as well now as it did back then. Pure, primitive drum machine bliss.
Quickfire, headstrong juke from Slava's new album on Software Recordings. Sparse, clattering and deadly.

The duo of Hudson Mohawke and Lunice present a 1-track single and it's quite frankly massive. More ravey than their eponymous EP, echoing the immense freneticism of their live shows. It's all long builds, tinkly pianos, meteorite showers of synths and walloping, avalanche drops.
Refracted disco bliss from Not Not Fun courtesy of Pharaohs. Keeps climbing higher and higher before reaching one heady vocal-driven conclusion.

Hard-edged techno tool from industrial techno veteran Adam X.
