ust as the temperature starts to rise for summer, !Organism keeps on serving up some of Europes hottest techno. Behind their next one is Portugals Steve Menta, who offers up three tracks of searing club beats with a fine remix from Xpansul.

Menta has been part of the LX Music crew since 2008. He veers from melodic house to darker techno and does so on labels like Rusted Records and Superbia. With fans like Paco Osuna and Nick Warren playing his beats, and his DJ diary taking him all over the world, Menta is a real techno player.

Up first is the fulsome "Symptomatic," a paranoid and large scale groove with big drums, turbulent synths and a dark sense of energy that powers the whole thing along with real force. Remixing this one is the hugely prolific Xpansul, a Spanish artist with many aliases and more than 50 EPs to his name on the likes of Ovum, Perc and Analytic Trail. His version is industrial and menacing, boisterous and hugely textured, with flaming drums and massive hi hats demanding you stomp along to the groove.

Elsewhere, the hugely atmospheric "Alchemist" is a dubbed out roller with spine tingling and chilly hi hats ticking along above deep drums as warm pads smear out in all directions. It is one for the heads and the back rooms, whilst "Unveiled" is a much more banging and peak time track with incendiary hi hat ringlets, slamming drums and intense synths that fire every synapse.

This is another on point EP jam packed with dance floor dynamite.
