Conforce - Time DilationConforce
Time Dilation 
Delsin

Boris Bunnik switches over from the dystopic electro of his Versalife project to the Conforce alias by which he's better known. Classic Delsin material here. "Nomad" sets the tone with ominous techno drones, an odd kick meter, elastic bass and big-room creepiness. "Receiver" veers closer to classic Detroit techno tropes, with insistent bells providing the atmosphere over a telltale tom. The patient and precise production of the ep’s opener is still intact, but here it's bolstered by subtle hi-hat drops that feel momentous in context. B-side "Last Anthem’s" rugged kick drum signals this 12”s diversity, ringing in the most floor-friendly track on the record. Closer "Embrace" is a deep, dub techno track with just a sliver of melody, achieving Chain Reaction-worthy hypnosis.

New French house and disco sounds from RONE. This one is a chugger with a catchy synth hook. On the flip "ROCCA (BUZZIN FLY)" drops a tracky house version with some acid sounds over French vocal snippets. A steel drum like synth pierces through unexpectedly and makes ya wiggle.

Kito - WHAT IF 12" DISF005
A deep, atmospheric dubstep track with ethereal vocals, this is modern / futuristic chillout. B-side "COLD" takes the same vibe, but adds ominous wobbly bass & synth washes for a dark, chilled vibe. Very dope! But what else would you expect from SKREAM's DISFIGURED DUBZ label?
