Belgium’s Amelie Lens is one of the most swiftly ascending names in techno. Last year, she nearly eclipsed Festicket’s list for most festivals played in 2018 of any artist worldwide, rounding out at 27, just behind fellow techno talent, Nina Kraviz (35 festivals). That number grows even more telling when considering Lens clocked in just four festival appearances in all of 2017.
As torrential in the studio as she is behind the decks across the international festival front, Lens has just delivered her latest EP, Hypnotized, packed with two original tracks, and a remix from fellow Belgians, Joyhauser. The galloping techno cuts comprise Lens’ fourth release through the Berlin-based Second State. Hypnotized is Lens’ first solo release of 2019. She appeared on world-renowned techno trove, Drumcode, earlier this year with two Adam Beyer “Teach Me” cuts in hand.

Eric Prydz took his Cirez D alias to Coachella this year for both weekends, serenading techno fanatics and listeners alike at the YUMA stage. The Swedish producer who rose to fame in 2004 with his hit single, “Call on Me,” has distanced himself from the mainstream, forging his own path through the wired forest of stage production with holograms and his new forward thinking live concept, VOID.
Prydz’ Cirez D alias takes Prydz’ talents underground, to cater to his–and fans’–techno cravings. He also plays almost exclusively his own music, which is an accomplishment in itself, given the two-hour length of his recent public performance at Coachella’s second weekend. The only song not by Cirez D is Thomas Schumacher‘s “Golden Hour.”

David Guetta continues to extend and experiment with his trademark sound with a new release, “This Ain’t Techno,” produced alongside England native, Tom Staar. The track marks Guetta’s return to Spinnin’ Records, which is fitting thanks to the song’s hectic notes and the upbeat tempo that characterizes many of the label’s sterling releases.
Blaring trumpets and energetic chants immediately submerge the listener into a club set along the apex of a night out. The result is a mesmerizing tune that leans heavily on hypnotizing bass chords, spirited vocals, and swirling sound effects. David Guetta has had a knack for taking inspiration from the deeper sounds of house and techno in both his sets and productions as of late. This notion was recently underlined by new music from his Jack Back alias; and “This Ain’t Techno” is a great addition to his ever-fluctuating sound.
Underworld have returned with a new song to continue their Drift series, launching its second installment with “Appleshine.” The duo—who with their formation in 1980 were one of the first to explore electronic music—haven’t lost any talent along their extensive journey, with this 10-minute opus standing as a reminder.
Industrial and technical elements in “Appleshine” together create an emotive movement of music. Paired with a partnering video, the new track is the first piece of episode two of Drift, whose six-piece first offering was released in 2018. Throughout this episode, viewers learn its backstory.
“On that journey, Karl and Rick stopped at a pig shed in Essex; Rockingham Speedway; a hotel room in Reykjavik; AIR studios and a series of tiny club shows in Amsterdam, Manchester and London. Each of those stop off points helped influence the creation of DRIFT Episode 1 & 2.”
