I'll assume that a lot of you don't listen to gabba. Understandable reasons: suspect DJ fodder, all sounds the same, slightly out-of-reach BPM's, the drugs need to be fucking good to enjoy it. But there are exceptions, like UK Hardcore heroes DJ Dolphin and The Teknoist. Teaming up for two blazing slices of ultra-spacious, well-crafted 70mm hyperspeed techno. Purchase anything by these guys or anything on the Deathchant label and you'll find hardcore that doesn't do dumb

First record of the year from Planet-Mu who are definitley onto something with this release. Two tracks that manage to do what seems like the impossible, make hard techno sound boundary pushing avant guarde and best of all lush and emotional. Dolphin's orchestral led 'Soul Cannibal' manages to combine a techno sensibility with depth, whilst The Teknoists Closing Down does a similar thing with piano keys, stemming the harshness of the drum track with panicked sorrow.

Brand new slice of vinyl from the Planet Mu oven, this split 12" features Dolphin and The Teknoist in a healthy face-off to see who can melt your needle first. Considering this is their debut for the label, neither Greg Dolphin or Mike Teknoist seem to be suffering from first night nerves - with both delivering the kind of piping hot gabba/glitch epics that would have Beowulf running to the hills. Topping their spasticated beats with piano and strings respectively,
