Rame
Rame (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: CB 018. Rel: 29 Mar 21
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Rame (7:58)
  2. Melkor (6:00)
  3. Caterpillar (7:54)
Review: Spanish producer Rafael Cuartero Lopez has been whipping up a storm for the past 10 years via labels like Viva, Desolat, Saved and Hot Creations, and now he lands on Constant Black with a clutch of finely honed, peak time tech house thumpers. There's a militant urgency to these tracks, which lean in hard on the drums and fill out the space in between with wriggling, writhing threads of electronic interference. If you're after melodic hooks look elsewhere, this is raw, tracky tackle for the heads down, all-night crowd.

Signal Issues
Signal Issues (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: CB 022. Rel: 27 Sep 21
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Signal Issues
  2. Still Waiting
  3. Rush Hour
Review: These three offerings from Michael James might fit into the minimal/tech bracket comfortably but there's a free flowing, shuffling sense of funkiness that undeniably runs through them all that defies all the usual 'shoulder twitch' stereotypes about the genre. 'Signal Issues' employs a panther-like bass hovering under the radar, with the briefest of breakbeat snippets adding the growing syncopation. 'Still Waiting' continues the technofunk mission, a sea of underplayed bleepery augmenting the groove, while 'Rush Hour' has a breezier and more open vibe and perhaps a more classic techno feel, proper graceful like.

Go Gently
Go Gently (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: CB 012. Rel: 06 Jan 20
Deep House
  1. Go Gently (7:49)
  2. Sanctuary (5:56)
  3. Cosmic Jazz (6:51)
  4. Light Drizzle (6:42)
Review: Over the past couple of years Niko Maxen has been busy firing out hit after hit of refined minimal with an emphasis on moody atmospheres and intricate, off-centre groove programming. From early releases on Pathway Traxx to recent outings on Roche Noire, Rowle and many others, he's already got a lot of heat behind him, and so it continues with this killer 12" for Constant Black. "Go Gently" is a dense, electrifying workout with a killer beat and spooked out pads, while "Sanctuary" edges towards bubbling modular synth lines perfect for psychotropic warm-ups. "Cosmic Jazz" is a little more straight-up in its demeanour, albeit with wigged out FX sends riding over the top, while "Light Drizzle" heads into tripped out territory once again.

Dogwood
Dogwood (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: CB 020. Rel: 04 May 21
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Dogwood (7:18)
  2. Laurel (5:35)
  3. Willow (6:31)
  4. Whitebeam (7:36)
Review: Constant Sound's vital Constant Black offshoot welcomes Nike Maxen for a fine debut that comes after the artist has impressed already in 2020 with EPs on Mellow, Talman and Honne Music. The sounds on offer are classy and heady, with opener 'Dogwood' pairing dreamy pads and sparse percussion with a nice rolling and dubby beat. 'Laurel' picks up the pace but remains supremely smooth, and 'Willow' again gets you even more upright with its punchy kicks, but the languid pads keep things deep. Closer 'Whitebeam' is an icy cool tech house number with heady loops and superb bass warmth. This is another functional but characterful offering from this label.

Mate (140 gram vinyl 2xLP)
Cat: CB 021.
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Mate
  2. Hayes
  3. Catchy
  4. PR-33
  5. Magnitude
  6. Dark Faces
  7. Goldfinger
  8. Nothing Personal
Review: Silat Beksi has been busy this year. Remarkably, this expansive double-pack on Burnski's Constant Black label - officially his second full-length excursion and first for six years - is the Ukrainian producer's fifth vinyl missive of 2020. Mate is a fluid, off-kilter and sonically detailed affair, with manipulated jazz samples, oddball spoken word snippets and pots-and-pans percussion mingling with outer-space tech-house grooves, bouncy deep house rhythms, the eccentric stereo panning of Ricardo Villalobos and the locked-in hypnotism of Eastern European minimal techno. It's a sonic palette that guarantees thrills throughout, with Beksi doing a brilliant job of showcasing his distinctive production style.

Manipulate Our Reflections (incl Relic remix)
Cat: CB 019.
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Manipulate Our Reflections
  2. Vvoid
  3. Manipulate Our Reflections (Relic remix)
Review: Having impressed with his 2019 debut album on Negentropy, the breaks/tech-house/minimal techno fusion of Rhythm Tension, Zweizig has been given a chance to showcase his wares on Constant Sound's popular Constant Black offshoot. The headline attraction is undoubtedly opener 'Manipulate Our Reflections', a spaced-out chunk of hypnotic late-night science that wraps wonky, Villalobos style electronic noises and pulsing pads around a locked in (but also surprisingly swinging) tech-house groove. Relic provides a chunkier and groovier remix that boasts darker noises and a more beefed-up sound, while bonus cut 'Vvoid' is a twisted, undulating acid-jacker.
