  1. Sofwans (3am mix)
  2. Souffrance (dub mix)
Review: The Sofrito Super Singles series is on the cusp of double figures and this offering from collective main man Frankie Francis and the excellent Simbad might just be their best work so far. As ever with Sofrito, there's a sense of music education that comes with this record as the label shines the light on Gwo Ka - the folkloric rhythm of Guadeloupe - and one of its greatest voices in Esnard Boisdur. The focus here is Bosidur's 1991 track "Soufwans" (which translates as Sufferance for those not au fait with Guadeloupian) which in the hands of Francis and Simbad is flipped into a hypnotic house production replete with deep bassline and some killer synths. The accompanying dub mix will probably appeal to the deeper house selectors too as there's some killer drum programming on that one.

  5. Lullaby
Review: Vakula may be scarily prolific (he released an astonishing 11 12" singles in 2011 alone), but his off-kilter brand of deep house and woozy electronica rarely disappoints. Here he delivers his fourth 12" on Bandura, once again offering up an intriguing set of tracks that defy easy categorization. As usual, expect to find a blend of fuzzy downtempo electronics (the ambient oddity that is "Electrica Spica"), dub-influenced techno (the skewed loops and throbbing analogue rhythm of "Thoughts on the Road"), hissing, jazz-influenced deepness (the delightfully subdued "Lullaby"), bright-but-deep futurist techno (lead cut "Ukranian Landscape", which seems tinged with sadness despite the boldness of its' melodies) and ultra-deep soundscapes ("Distant Tenderness").

  1. Sparkling Controversy
Review: Hot on the heels of Floating Points' excellent King Bromeliad EP - a belated return to his deep house roots smothered in tactile jazz - comes this one-sided 12" single. "Sparkling Controversy" is a previously unreleased dub of "ARP3" from 2011's expansive double-EP Shadows. While the original saw Sam Shepherd recalling Moodymann's greatest deep jazz-house moments, "Sparkling Controversy" has a little more of a garage-flecked bounce. The warm Rhodes chords, darting synths and dewy-eyed melodies that marked out the original track are still present, and perfectly compliment Shepherd's warm, tooled-up rhythm. Its every bit as immersive and touchy-feely as the 2011 original, just a little weightier, with added punch to the percussion.

  4. Crazy Spirit
Review: The boy Naples hooks up with Bankhead again for what looks and sounds like a sequel to last year's much loved El Portal 12" for The Trilogy Tapes. Apparently named in honour of the hospitable reception young Anthony received whilst playing a party in the Columbian town of Zipacon, this four track release opens with "Perron" which sounds like previous Naples hit "Busy Signal" hollowed out. From here, "Zipacon" feels like a real high point with fizzing, intricate drum patterns and a warbling pad line that really captivates. Flipside cut "More Problem" offers a undeniably booming interlude before Naples gets really bugged out on the excellent "Crazy Spirit".

Review: The fledgling Lobster Theremin empire expanded further still this year with the launch of dedicated black and white labels that pointed in techno and house directions respectively. Getting label top boy Palms Trax to inaugurate the White series was a smart move (as was securing a Galcher remix) but Lobster Theremin look to a new name for the second WL release in Daze. Who is that you ask? All Lobster Theremin reveal is he hails from Australia and this Lips 12" makes for quite the impressive debut offering, trading in rugged and acid laced house tracks that doff their cap to "the heart of British rave culture via Detroit-influenced electro" The Omar S-styled 303 acid lines of "Untitled" and the lo-fi, summery breakbeats of the '94 Original DAT Dub of the title-track stand out.

Review: REPRESS ALERT: Finale Sessions presents a new series of releases from the vault on 10" format. This first release pairs two bonafide legends in the shape of Fred P and Kai Alce, both known for their incredibly accomplished takes on house. Fred P's "Ram" is a deep excursion into pulsing chords and delicate atmosphere, while Kai Alce's "Scene 1" is a raw, acidic affair for peak time sets - both are essential cuts.

Review: **Repress** Right now, pretty much everything Vancouver crew Mood Hut touches turns to audible gold. Here, they deliver another stunner, this time from Pender Street Steppers man Jack Jutson. The real killer here is 11- minute flipside "Something (On My Mind)", a delightfully loose and fuzzy chunk of analogue deep house built on jazz-house percussion, snaking saxophones, immersive chords and golden melodies. Honestly, it's superb. There's more stunning sweetness in the shape of "Looking Forward To You", with its sensual spoken vocal and eyes-wide-shut positivity, and "Take it 2 the Edge", an undulating chunk of hazy broken house replete with enveloping pads, razor-sharp cymbals and drifting vocal samples.

  1. Footwork
  2. Tympanic Warfare
Review: Theo Parrish lays down a marker for a long overdue fifth album, apparently due out later this year, with the sublime Footwork 12". Named in reference to the dance as opposed to the breakneck offshoot of Ghetto House, "Footwork" is a sublime slab of Theo with many of his trademark production touches. Think lightly brushed percussion, meandering bassline that juts out with an odd funk, and subtle yet sumptuous musical touches, all topped off by a gruff "let me see your footwork baby" croon. Those Theo fans out there that like the man to get a bit rugged will be all over "Tympanic Warfare" too, where off the grid polyrhythms cannon around the channels, augmented by an ugly bassline and dexterous keys.

Review: Argentine techno producer Leonel Castillo made his first appearance on Yossi Anoyal's Sushitech imprint way back in 2006, when the label was still in its infancy. Here he delivers a follow-up eight years in the making. Deep, fluid, atmospheric and occasionally otherworldly, Deep Blue shows Castillo at his mesmerizing best. Each of the five tracks does a good job in showcasing his undulating and hypnotic deep techno sound, which sits somewhere between classic dub techno (see the final track for extra dubwise portions) and typically Germanic after-party fare. There's little to criticize, just a range of yearning, floor-friendly concoctions aimed squarely at DJs who like their techno deep, warm and enticing.

  2. Someone (Brett Dancer Unreleased dub)
  3. Something
Review: For the latest release on his NDATL imprint, Kai Alce has reached to a long-standing but oft-overlooked stalwart of the deep house circuit, Brett Dancer. With releases on Track Mode reaching back to 1994, Dancer has been active one way or another right the way through, and these three jams find him in fine fettle. "The Hybrid" certainly sports plenty of Midwest soul in its warming synth lines and soulful outlook, while the inherent spirit of techno noticeably keeps the track pushing forwards. Dancer's "Unreleased Dub" of "Someone" comes draped in similar styles, with the added injection of vocal licks and pattering bongos, before "Something" takes on a more obviously house tone for the deeper end of the night.

Review: Having previously impressed on Argot and Home Taping Is Killing Music with her blends of evocative deep house and floor-friendly Chicago rhythms, The Black Madonna tries a different approach on this debut for the recently launched Night Owl Diner label. You could certainly describe both tracks as "Balearic", and there's a real air of wide-eyed positivity about the tumbling melodies, swirling synth-strings and mid-80s pop production of head-nodding deep house cut "Stay". It's pretty darn tasty, all told. Almost as good is "Requiem", which appears to be built around a loop lifted from Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal's "Saturday Love" (with, of course, additional synths and tuneful electronics).

Review: With a title like Annoying Mumbling Alkaholik, you'd expect this three-tracker from the mighty Alex "Omar" Smith to be full of pent-up anger and bitter frustration. Sure, there's a raging rawness about the third track - an undulating trip into spiraling acid territory - but for the most part the EP is a beacon of simple beauty. The opening track is particularly picturesque, with beautiful, new-age influenced melodies and immersive pads riding a cymbal-heavy Detroit deep house groove. There's more Mood Hut/Future Times style synth work on the Tangerine Dream influenced "Track 2", which contrasts deep, sun-kissed melodic loops with a fuzzy drum machine groove.

  2. Are You In Touch (with Varan)
Review: Fresh from unleashing an album of the year contender in Young Marco's Biology, ESP Institute return to matters of the 12" platter and welcome Munich trio Tambien back into the fold for a superb second record. The Der Elf 12? is described by the label as "a beacon of hope in a dark warehouse" andwill be welcome news for anyone that indulged in Drogato, last year's ESP bow from Bartellow and Public Possession pair Marvin & Valentino. Both tracks here suggest Tambien's productions are growing in confidence and range with each release. The concoction of bouncing 909 rhythms, gently bent synths and heavily delayed vocals that make up the A-side title track could easily be mistaken for a production from Mark Seven's Parkway label, and is complemented nicely by the melodically-driven deepness of "Are You In Touch w/ Varan?"

Review: There is deep and there is Fred P! But how does the man otherwise know as Black Jazz Consortium fare when he takes his well honed approach and applies it to a more explicitly techno palette? Well anyone that check Red Cloud, Peterkin's debut release under the Anomaly alias will know techno in Fred P's hands still retains his signature production flourishes but adds a touch of toughness into the mix. That's certainly the case with Sun & Moon, a 3 track homage to "techno-soul" that veers from the rigid rhythmic punch of "Serinatatis" to the more esoteric, spacy vibes of "Dark Population" which as it turns out is quite reminiscent of Terrence Dixon's Population One material.

Review: Making a welcome return to the fray with another rare outing for Uzuri, Jitterbug is in top-drawer house mode across the board on this six track groove fest. "Sweet Tooth" works a funky bass lick and little touches of guitar around a rough beat to devastating effect, while "Jus Drums" offers up a rasping rhythm set for all creatively minded spinners to get in a lather about. "Surge" has a more urgent funky techno spirit about it, tapping into the swung style of Stephen Brown with ample interwoven melodic threads. "Ache 4U" takes a slower, smoother approach with a beautiful reflective house excursion, before "Koko" ramps up the energy with a lively disco infusion, leaving it to "Trak 6" to level proceedings with a nasty drum heavy bumper.

  3. Tominori Hosoya - "Saki"
  4. Subjecktive - "Point Of View"
Review: With a rich assortment of fresh talent in their fold, the Blind Jacks Journey crew are doing a sterling job of representing the North Yorkshire region as an area of discerning taste in the cluttered realm of deep house. Gobi is up first with "White Dwarf", which comes on primal and nasty with its tough box beats and scuffed synth bass, sitting in stark contrast to the more elegant, searching ruminations of Lock Eyes' "Behinf". Tominori Hosoya is equally soothing as "Saki" drifts out in a haze of illustrious pads, gently twitching beats and brooding bass. Subjecktive's "Point Of View" spends plenty of time hovering behind the need to kick a beat off, letting soulful vocal slithers and mournful synth unfurl for a good long while before working some rhythm into proceedings.

Review: It's been a good 12 months since a Trinidadian Deep release, and two years since his last EP for Neroli. Here he returns to the Italian label with another trio of tracks rich in musicality and dreamy, spine-tingling depth. Opener "Dem Jump" sets the tone, delivering a saucer-eyed take on Mood Hut style new age house built around bossa-influenced drums and peppered with delicious marimba melodies. There's more of a traditional US deep house bump to the similarly dreamy "Eyes Closed" - all tactile chords and twinkling piano solos - while "Beyond Us" layers sun-bright synth melodies over a dense, bongo-laden rhythm. All three tracks are magical in their own way, as you might expect from someone of Trinidadian Deep's pedigree.

Review: Alleviated's Larry Heard reissue series has previously brought us the rough and tough acid of Gherkin Jerks and, more recently, the intergalactic downtempo grooves of his largely overlooked Alien LP. Here, they revisit one of Heard's later aliases, Loosefingers, dusting down and reissuing tracks from 2003's Glancing at the Moon EP. All three tracks are deep, warm and melodious in typical Heard fashion, with the title track delivering a sultry blend of wide-eyed chords, darting electronics, Latin-influenced percussion and tactile keys. "Deep Inside" delivers a hazy, sun-kissed take on soulful house - all jazz bass, sensual chords and gentle vocals. Best of all, though, is the tougher, synth-heavy "Lamentation", which rolls along at a near techno-tempo and is blessed with thrilling bleep melodies.

Review: Irish house producer Lerosa appears on Simoncino's HotMix label for the first time after a 10 year career that's seen his music released with Uzuri, Quintessentials, Millions Of Moments and Ostgut Ton. Here he provides a four-track EP of varied house styles that only someone who knows what they're doing could provide. "Inverted Castle" has a beefy staccato bassline with deep flecks of piano chords to offset the heat, while "Tango" is minimal and deep but jacking. It's quality Chicago house at its most elemental on the B-side with "Horatio" while "All The Same" throbs with a bubbly pulse while filtered keys and chord progressions are played by what sounds like a pianist trapped underwater.

  3. Unapologetic Weightlessness
Review: If house music was part of your life five years ago there's every chance the dusky sounds of Pepe Bradock's "Path Of Most Resistance" lit up your dancefloor. It's a track that's as much a profound A-side on this EP as was "Deep Burnt" from his seminal Burning 12" (invertly that record's B-side). Swimsuit Issue 1789 was the last record Bradock released on Atavisme before issuing four Imbroglios 12"s during 2012 and 2013, and its B-side tracks, as you'd expect from Bradock, provide more top shelf quality. When it comes to basslines in house music "CU @ Minna & Lafayette" is a production that's up there with what Kevin Saunderson (aka Master Reese) can produce, while "Unapologetic Weightlessness" is a confused, ping ponging jumble of zany electronics lightened by the smooth cascade of a floating synth.

Review: Ah the humble double pack, isn't there something so very satisfying about this format?

It's another high profile cast that contribute to the eight tracks here, with Montel, Mikki Funk, Jackson Ryland and Aashton all featuring. It's the latter, Brighton-based producer who opens proceedings with "I Can't Shake It", a summer house anthem in the making that showcases his love of a classic RnB vocal. Maverick follows with "Wait For U" which is not only his Sccucci debut but also the Parisian's first production committed to wax - hard to believe! The mood swings through various shades of house from here with "Lemme Hold U" from Montel a mid point highlight thanks to a killer vocal hook.

Review: Last year saw Gerd Janson and Maurice Fulton shake hands on a deal that Bubbletease Communications fans had long been hoping for, with Running Back penning a deal to reissue some of the producer's digi only work on vinyl. The first fruits came in the shape of the Syclops album A Blink Of A Eye (featuring THAT track) and now Running Back turn to the sublime combination of Fulton on production and Mutsumi on vocals. Both tracks here are taken from the artist formerly known as Mu's 2010 self titled LP. As with most, if not all, Fulton productions, the music here sounds like little else and still totally ahead of the game some four years after it's digital release. Described by Running Back as "hard-hittin-freak-out dance tracks", those looking for the perfect blend of Fulton's squelchy acid instrumentation and Mutsumi's wild vocals are advised to check this post-haste.

"Recant" nudges back into more intricate territory with a cheeky square wave bass line and slick hi hat shuffle, before "Coming Through" cools things off with a crafty broken beat excursion that works a little acid into the bottom end of the mix.

Review: After a standout contribution to the 2012 v/a 12" Prepared Halal Vol 2, Anaxander and Boe meet once again and it's a more substantial offering from the producer this time with Travelogues wedged somewhere between EP and mini LP. Given that remixes from Ben Boe and Madurai Raj feature on the flip it's probably best to call this an EP but regardless, it does find Anaxander laying down a selection of killer percussive grooves. "Wild Grass" makes for a wonderfully insouciant opener with subtle calypso undertones, whilst the heady grit of "Night Train" demonstrates Anaxander can operate at a darker hue too. Ben Boe's take on "Wild Grass" is straight up house deepness like you have come to expect from the label, whilst the Raj effort swerves into leftfield beatdown territory. Lo fi house rattler "The Snake Charmer" is excellent too!
