Round nine for the Black Jukebox series from Exploited and Shir Khan lays down the gauntlet to a new array of European and international production talent looking to take on the basements and terraces. First up is Brussels-based Mickey, who lines the A Side with two cuts; "Holding Hands"seems tailor made for the Black Jukebox series as a sultry vocal sample coaxes a perfectly placed house bassline into action, whilst "LA Anyway" finds Mickey in techier territory. Away on side B, Parisian The Makanism gets his congas out on "The Touch" which seems to pay a certain homage to the filter house style the French capital pioneered years before - can you guess the sample though? Finally we head to Philadelphia as Matpat implements another killer piano sample amidst some tough house beats and a looped up vocal hook.
