01. St. Plomb, “Flight Back” [Contentismissing] (buy)
Only four releases into their existence, the Swiss label/collective Contentismissing has quickly become a reliable source for eclectic techno slates bearing thought-provoking artwork. Their latest, “24h,” rounds up tracks from Rene Breitbarth, Buttha, Hofuku Sochi and St. Plomb, whose “Flight Back” is the clear standout. Amid glistening pads and hitched up hats a juicy organ progression sloshes from side to side, threatening to splash over the sides as the track intensifies. An essential gear from this often reserved producer.

02. Audio Werner, “Easygoing”
[Hartchef Discos] (buy)

Two years after his “Flat Funk” slunk its way into many DJs’ crates, Audio Werner has returned with a new 12″ for the underrated Hartchef Discos. “Easygoing” is well positioned to please the new wave of ‘heads cottoning on to Werner’s script-flipping house sound, feeling like a follow up to 2005’s “Still Jackin’.” Its minor stabs balance nimbly on skinny legs, laying out the palate for Werner to smear into longer melodies. Although the understated bass line comes as a surprise, Werner’s glib vocal samples and endless minute tweaks are sure to keep listeners on their feet.

03. Glimpse, “Drifting” (C2 Deep Mix) [Planet E] (buy)
Sometimes we think Carl Craig signs tracks to Planet E because he sees their innate potential as fodder for his signature remixes. Now we can add prolific producer Glimpse to Martin Buttrich and Sebastien San as producers whose like-minded Planet E tunes provided C2 with the kit for something much larger. Both of his versions are unhinged to better swallow the dance floor, metallic jaws crunching down on simmering percussion, ostinato drones and roiling acid vamps. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the “Deep Mix” has a raw bite that can’t be beat.

04. Spencer Parker, “Untitled Head”
[liebe*detail] (buy)

Fitting vocal snippets into techno mosaics is hardly a new production technique but it’s seen a big resurgence in the last year with varying degrees of success. One of the better examples, Spencer Parker’s “Untitled Head,” is found on liebe*detail’s latest platter. By grooming and programming mono syllabic vocal samples, Parker creates the illusion of a plucked guitar riff darting between thick tom runs. Its outward simplicity makes its infectious groove even more contagious and dangerous in the hands of DJs. We look forward to more from Mr. Parker.

05. David K, “73 Tomtom Avenue” (Jimpster remix) [Tsuba Records] (buy)
Speaking of tracks focusing on vocal samples, “73 Tomtom Avenue” by David K and remixed by Jimpster offers a more traditional and equally enjoyable take on the tactic. Ever the reliable and insatiable remixer, Jimpster wedges the original’s strengths into his wheelhouse of deep, melodic house. More in the mold of Ron Trent and Chez Damier, the tune dribbles a beatboxed sample like a basketball cloaked in dubbed out melodies and stretched strings. And while Jimpster avoids taking many risks, dancers and DJs alike will revel in its consistent good vibes and surprisingly fresh execution.
