Oli Hannaford delivers a sexy grooving remix of Lebeaux’s “Gold Man (I’m Chemical).” The track starts off in the vein of nu disco track circa 2012 — I can imagine hearing this on one of The Magician’s Magic Tapes in that era.

Over the course of the track, Spoiler keeps adding more blippy synths, captivating and at times glitchy percussion, and even some vocal samples towards the end. “(The) Well Tempered (OS)” is
Spanish duo Underbooz kick off their Seven Sisters release on Booz Muz with “Celaeno,” a rumbling, proper techno track. Clocking in at 6 minutes and 29 seconds long, Underbooz waste no time getting into their compelling techno sound, which is replete with distorted and resonant sound effects overtop a thunderous kick drum guaranteed to shake any well-outfitted warehouse.
