I’m calling it early: Autechre wins record of the year 2013. I just don’t see how anyone can possibly top this. Holy. Fucking. Shit.

Overall, a very dance oriented month with lots of trance and techno, but on the other hand some quite bewildering variety within these genres.

Out of the Suntrip batch I’m most excited about the two Dimension 5 records, it’s so great to have all that stuff compiled on CD at last. I think the matering is slightly aggressive but I’ll take it. Despite my affiliation with the label, I normally prefer a darker and weirder sound than these records represent. That said, there are some nice bits in here! In my sunny set at Lost Theory Festival 2011 I played the Filteria remix track off of the Shaltu compilation for example. I need to records some more mix sets…

For techno, there’s still lots of fantastic moody, introvert stuff being released. The Function album and accompanying EP are really fantastic and the EP from A Mochi is the fattest thing I’ve heard in ages.
