  2. To My Surprise
  3. Dyno
  4. For All Love In Time
  5. Organic Juggernaut
Review: Back in the early noughties, talented keys-man and producer Kaidi Tatham was one of the broken beat and nu-jazz scene's principal players, a Bugz In The Attic and 2000 Black member whose musical talents saw him appear on a dizzying array of releases. This mini-album, first released in the summer of 2011 and repressed this year, sees him assume the role of West London's answer to Herbie Hancock, laying down a series of compositions that bring jazz-funk bang up to date. While the Hancock influence is most obvious on the 80s jazz-funk vibes of "Don't Have Your Love" and "To My Surprise", the great man's love of experimentation is much evident elsewhere - not least in the sunshine-bruk of "Organic Juggernaut" and flowing strings-and-pianos of "Dyno".

Review: Here's an interesting proposition: a debut album from a hitherto unknown American producer on Prins Thomas' globally-focussed Internasjonal imprint. To say that Oregon-based musician Tridact has little previous pedigree, it's an impressive debut. Fusing fuzzy old analogue synths (think Stereolab or vintage kraut rock) with Balearic guitar flourishes, lazy disco grooves and sprightly electronic melodies, it's a jolly and at times utterly joyful set (see "J24 at Sunset", "Cold Star" and "Over The Clouds"). While comparisons can be made with, say, fellow American nu-Balearic twiddlers Windsurf or Hatchback, there's a freshness and rhythmic urgency that was lacking on those largely super laidback affairs. Well worth a listen.

Review: Omar S has always been something of a maverick, but even by his own high standards, surprise second album It Can Be Done, But Only I Can Do It is something else. Like much of his work, it's an album of acute contrasts: tough and aggressive on one hand (the ragging acid of the opener and "Ganymede"), soft, calming and blissful on the other ("Nite's Over Comption"). Along the way, highlights are plentiful, from the heady deep house of "You Wish", sparse porno beatdown of "Look Hear Watch" and hypnotic rhythms of "Bobien Larkin", to the next generation Motor City techno of "Over You Two" and near-anthemic simplicity of "Here's Your Trance, Now Dance".

Review: Tom 'Toddla T' Bell has enjoyed a rapid rise to the higher echelons of dance music thanks to a robust sound rooted in the twin attractions of dancehall and B-more. For this second album for Ninja Tune, he seems hell bent on proving his eclectic credentials. With deviations into piano-laden, breakbeat-driven house, murky R&B, post dubstep-pop and Prince-ish sexfunk, plus collaborations with Roisin Murphy, Roots Manuva and Shola Ama, Watch Me Dance comes on like a contemporary take on Basement Jaxx - albeit with a distinct Sheffield twist (listen out for nods to Steel City bleep techno, Moloko and long-forgotten beat manglers the All Seeing I).

Review: Underground Quality's pappa bear Jus-Ed returns to the production fold with Vision Dance, a 10 track album released via Japanese imprint Mule. As well as being the first album of his to come out on a label other than his beloved UQ, it also stands out as his most accomplished work to date: gone is the raw DIY feel of "I'm Coming", replaced with sumptuous, rich, fully formed grooves like "A Little Deeper", "Emotion" ,"Ice 592", and, most impressively, "Acid Techno", suggesting the Connecticut based producer has been spending a lot of time locked away with his drum machines. Vision Dance is also clearly influenced by Ed's travels through Europe - track titles like "Project 1 London" and "Stuck In A Train To Berlin" reveal that he has broken modern DJ protocol by spending the down time between gigs being productive instead of lurking on Twitter.

Review: Brooklyn imprint Captured Tracks score another hit with the self titled debut album from Soft Metals. Formed of boyfriend and girlfriend Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall, there's a clear chemistry between the Portland two that transcends through to the music brilliantly on this ten track set. It would take a stern soul not to be enchanted from the moment Hall's voice rises over the hazy synthscapes conjured by Hicks on opening track "Psychic Driving". From here on in, Soft Metals revel in a sound that crosses a referential glance at East European synth wave with sly nods to cinematic references and the doctrines of Carl Sagan. Most crucial however is how the music sounds - with each track measuring Hall's voce perfectly over glistening synthwork and intricately effective drums.

Review: Above & Beyond's Anjunabeats label has always promoted a cultured take on trance that's as influenced by classic progressive house as the repetitive pulse and epic breakdowns that the genre is most famous for. The same could be said of Finland-based production duo Super8 and Tab, whose carefully constructed Empire full-length was one of the best trance albums of 2010. Here it gets the remix treatment, with a mix of well-known names (Lange, 4 Strings, Gareth Emery) and up-and-coming producers taking it in turns to deliver similarly melodic and blissful interpretations. While there's little evidence of out-of-the-box thinking or musical curveballs, each of the reworks provides a sympathetic, floor-friendly take that fits Anjunabeats' admirable ethos.

Review: After truly impressing with his swerve in sonic direction across some of our favourite labels this year in Hessle, Rush Hour and 50 Weapons, the excellent Cosmin TRG deemed to grace the latter imprint with this much awaited debut album. And for anyone who dipped into the Romanian's recent output, Simulat will delight on many levels. The opening dusty strains of "Amor Y Otros" sets the standard, cleverly layering sounds and thumping rhythms in a fashion that is expansive yet cohesive, even straying down some thrilling pitch shifted dynamics. Previous 50 Weapons single "Fizic" features and its hazy melodic treatment of chords and synths is an obvious highlight, but there's plenty more on offer. "Ritmat" seemingly succeeds in marrying the rough drum skeleton of dubstep with ascendant house rhythms whilst "Want You To Be" immerses your senses in a deep fog of crackling ethereality, embellished with haunting vocals and militant kicks. Brief moments of calm are interspersed with more familiar Cosmin TRG tackle on a twelve track album that might not contain the immediate gratification of A Universal Crush, instead its real charms reveal after repeat listens.

Review: Austrian drum and bass four-piece Fourward have been slowly building a reputation on the jungle scene since 2009, largely via 12" singles on Citrus, Fokuz, Audio Porn and Virus. Here they present their debut full-length, a tech-tinged collection of brain-melting D&B rollers that touches on a variety of junglist flavours. So while Fourward's default position is heavy and dark with a hint of stoned paranoia, there are also upbeat forays into piano-laden territory (the anthemic "Amigo"), Timeless-ish, Amen-laden vocal numbers ("Enclosure"), twisted dubstep ("Temptations") and snappy jungle-funk ("You & Me"). Throughout, the combination of light and dark elements is refreshingly stark.

Review: This album from serial electronic music experimentalist Ulrich Troyer is surprising on many levels - not least that it's been released by Mala's respected Deep Medi Musik imprint. Fiercely downtempo, Songs For William sees Troyer turn his hand to dub with mesmerizing results. Troyer has previously eschewed more traditional musical forms in favour of white noise and breathtaking ambience, but here he gets the formula just right. The combination of dubstep/dub techno style atmospherics, unassuming dub rhythms, analogue pulses and soft-focus electronic melodies is judged perfectly (see the Kraftwerkin-dub vibes of "Driving To Cologne", or brilliantly titled "Shoegazing Muff"), resulting in an album that's simultaneously calming, beautiful and steadfastly otherworldly.
