Winter’s made its return here in Chicago after a week of warmth. In such weather, there’s nothing better than staying home with a stack of new records from the usual suspects.

B12: B12 Records Archive Volume 1

Heard in their original context (yet skillfully remastered), the tunes from B12’s Musicology and 2001 - Space Age E.P. are exciting, even after nearly two decades.

Scott Grooves: Technique EP

This is one 12-inch that reinforces the idea house and techno are two sides of the same coin.

Arctic Hospital: Neon Veils

Arctic Hospital’s first album had a precise, cold elegance. His follow-up is more minimal than tech-house, and it suffers as a result.

Andy Stott: Unknown Exception

While Stott’s first album was all over the map, this collection of recent EPs sees him honing in on a distinctive, dubby style. The bass drops are massive.

Jay Denham: The Truth

I have to give props to Denham for originality, because this is one weird album. The title track, written and co-produced with Anthony “Shake” Shakir is pure house with a woman singing atonally and Denham speaking pretentiously over synth strings and bleating bass. A little goes a long way.

Shed: Shedding the Past

Shed’s first full-length comes out the beginning of September, but since I’ve seen it mentioned on a few blogs already, I thought I’d give it an early review. Shed already made a name for himself through a series of Detroit-inspired 12-inches issued on his own label, Soloaction. As this title punningly implies, he is expanding his sound, embracing everything from minimal techno to mellow, well, techno.
