Sprung Records of the week – 006

Oh yes…. Oh yessssss….

Communication difficulties meant that last week we missed our favourite Techno Chart, once again compiled by the 2 wizards behind Sprung Records. For their first February selection they have chosen some of our favourite artists such as Mr. G, Vakula, Paul Mac and Mark Broom. Well enough has already been said. Let the music do the talking

Enjoy the music that they are feeling this week.

Mr. G – BREED 02 (Breed Records)

In the words of Colin McBean himself, “If you havent got a good bassline, what have you got?”. Whether he’s making music as Mr. G, Mango Boy, Halcyon Daze (or under any other alias), he builds his tracks from the bassline up. The analogue hardware master delivers two cuts of his usual high quality grooving techno for Kris Wadsworth’s label. Trademark indomitable rawness.

RELEASE DATE: 02.02.15 (via

Paul Mac – Space, Space & More Space EP (Tortured Recordings)

Up next is the veteran producer and one half of Fokus Group; Paul Mac. From start to finish, the EP wholly embodies his confident no-nonsense attitude. Diverse and driving techno all created within the confines of his venerable originality. Dutchman Ritzi Lee delivers a no holds barred remix of the title track, offering 5 minutes of pulsating, flat-out gritty bassline which I honestly struggled to listen to whilst sat down….one for the movers.

RELEASE DATE: 02.02.15

Vakula – A Voyage to Arcturus (Leleka)

The sentient Ukrainian is back with a new album on his label Leleka. We love Vakula because of his enigmatic production style. He intricately blends some of the traditional elements of house music with sound energies and new ideas that few would think to incorporate. Dubby and undoubtedly cosmic, this cinematic piece is masterful throughout. The live instrumental and choral elements are the standout feature of this aural pleasure.

RELEASE DATE: 02.02.15

Brendon Moeller – A Confederacy of Dunces (Echocord Colour)

For fans of coloured wax, the new Moeller release comes in a shocking pink. As an added bonus, all of the tracks are sublime. His dub techno is made faster and harder than the usual, and could certainly be used to perfection on the right dancefloor. As rugged as they come.

RELEASE DATE: 02.02.15

Mark Broom – Attitude (Non Series)

Raw high-end techno tools made for dark dancefloors and basements. The prolific East London veteran producer has kept firmly to his underground roots despite his numerous years as a stalwart in the UK techno scene. So despite the sheer volume of MB releases, he often sits in the gloomy background of techno culture- exactly where he prefers to stay. Considered a legendary originator by those who know, Broom once again harnesses his no nonsense “Attitude” with this three track belter on the revered Non Series imprint.

RELEASE DATE: 28.01.15
