A year after the global, main-stage-scale success of “One Step Beyond,” Raito returns to #BNR with “Summer of Love” just in time to ensure he ends another summer with a euphoric blockbuster. If you remember that phrase “euphoric blockbuster ” from the rave scene in the 1995 film KIDS, then your head is in the right time and place. Raito has cemented his position as today’s breakout star of rave revivalism, and his pastiche of huge oldskool hooks with sharp production grants moments of monumental ecstasy to staid house and techno sets.

Cardopusher’s had a particularly prolific year since his BNR EP “A Convenient Excuse Pt. 1,” with releases for Super Rhythm Trax, Dark Entries, and Dalmata Daniel. Despite the accelerated timeline, there’s a notable progression in “A Convenient Excuse Pt. 2,” with Cardopusher appearing to be a producer in fast-forward stride.
If Part 1 was a survey of the darker side of 80’s industrial and EBM, Part 2 takes a more focused look at the sort of “haunted italo” begun with “Temporary Forever” from the previous release. Four of the five tracks are uptempo and club ready this time, driven by...

The first of a new series, BN RWRK 001 sees Boys Noize releasing reworks and edits that most DJ’s keep to themselves – the time-tested secret weapons that helps one to win in the arms race of dancefloor destruction. And this first volume drops two VERY large bombs.
TWR72’s Tunnel from 2010 takes an Occam’s Razor approach to massive energy – a very simple formula of one huge synth rising in pitch over minimal percussion until the point of hysteria. The timbre of the sound is so big though, so electric, one feels viscerally shocked as if by a live wire. If you ever feel like you are...

France may not be the first place one thinks for classic rave revival, but add Unklevon to the likes of BNR alumn Raito and something is clearly happening in our neighbor to the West. Unklevon’s “Searching 4 Power” EP offers three tracks of cavernous kicks, rave stabs, and hardcore MC’s that feel like one is being stretched through a wormhole in time. The kick always drives, and it’s seriously huge – there’s a lot of space in Unklevon’s work, expanding your headphones into a room, and a club into an airplane hangar. Reverb and delay factors heavily, dancing around the stereo spread into...

Baseck hails from Los Angeles, growing up in the utopian metropolis’ legendary 90’s rave scene. Permanent sunshine and Hollywood glamour seem alien to Berlin’s cold, transgressive ethos, but the last year saw horrific wildfires raging along LA’s fringes. There’s trouble in paradise – there always has been – and those for whom this darkness is no stranger have created a vibrant underground techno and industrial scene in warehouses hidden in the endless sprawl.
There’s a cyberpunk, cyborg element when it comes to interfacing with music machines, and Baseck not only utilizes an alchemic set...
