MPX 002 (Mor Elian mix) (180 gram vinyl 12")
MPX
Cat: MPX 002. Rel: 16 Mar 20
  1. No Drama (4:28)
  2. No Drama (Mor Elian remix) (5:28)
  3. Loose Fit (5:37)
  4. Hand Of Eris (6:21)
Review: Often found spiraling amongst the stars, A Sagittariun takes a turn inwards for this formidable foray into tougher techno realms for MPX. The drum jack pressure is real on "No Drama", which also sports a wonderfully psychoactive synth line to wriggle into your nerve endings with potent results. Mor Elian does a killer job on the remix too, chopping up the groove to create some dynamic syncopation around that nagging synth hook. "Loose Fit" and "Hand Of Eris" on the flip keep up the percussive pressure, but there's also plenty of character rubbed into these rhythmic ripples to make it far more than a set of DJ tools.

  1. You Gotta (7:11)
  2. Bliss (7:32)
  3. Techfest (8:26)
  4. Suits You (6:29)
Review: For the first release on their freshly minted Euphoric State sub-label, London label OPIA has turned to '90s survivors A2 & Stopouts, a trio of producers who first made their name as British tech-house pioneers in the late 1990s. The four tracks showcased on "Go With The Flo" apparently date from this period, though this is the first time they've seen the light of day. There's much to admire throughout, from the rolling, funk-fuelled house grooves and intergalactic pads of opener "You Gotta", to the jacking tech-funk of closing cut "Suits You", via the glassy-eyed rush of "Techfest", where sci-fi motifs and dream house electronics rise above bumping beats and a deliciously squelchy bassline.

Uprising (12")
Cat: AMF 003. Rel: 04 Mar 20
  1. Uprising (7:09)
  2. Uprising (dub) (6:51)
Review: It would be fair to say that this outing from piano-loving Sheffield sorts Adelphi Music Factory is a little bit big. And when we mean big, we mean BIG. Like, "phew, I might need a lie down after dancing to it" big. Of course, all their tunes are rushing and life affirming, but there's something particularly breathless about the blend of banged-out piano riffs, stomping gospel-house beats and big-lunged gospel vocals on "Uprising". The arrangement cleverly maximizes dancefloor impact by including all manner of builds and drops, while the flipside Dub mix only strips out a relatively limited amount of the vocal. The whole thing is a giddy blast from the past and the kind of thing we could expect people going crazy to at festivals this summer.

Four Fleurs (180 gram vinyl 12")

  1. Moonspa (7:49)
  2. Haven (6:05)
  3. Simplex City (7:14)
  4. Noga (7:40)
Review: 2019 was a breakthrough year for Adam Longman Parker AKA Afriqua, thanks in no small part to the release of his brilliant debut album on R&S (the mixed-up and imaginative "Colored"). It's a curious quirk then that his latest single features tracks not recorded last year, but rather way back in 2017. It shows a producer trying to take tech-house in interesting new directions whilst still maintaining the club-focused rhythms and late night hypnotism frequently associated with the style. We're particularly enjoying the melancholic, funk-fuelled deep-tech eccentricity of "Haven" and the colourful melodies of the decidedly druggy "Noga", though lolloping and layered opener "Moonspa" may well be the best of an off-kilter bunch.

Cat: MULEMUSIQ 250. Rel: 12 Feb 20
  1. Go! (7:15)
  2. Glendale Blvd Boogie (6:53)
  3. Ciao Sun (6:54)
Review: Californian human beatbox Dave Aju is at it again, following up his debut last year for Japan's Mule Musiq. Much like the material on the "TXLAX" LP (which explored his move back to Los Angeles from Berlin) the material on "Ciao Sun" is another serving of Aju's idiosyncratic sound: tongue-in-cheek, wacky and off-kilter minimal house with a fine attention to detail. You can hear his newfound enthusiasm for "La La Land" on here: the A side is brimming with sweltering carnival vibes with Latin house epic "Go!", while on the flipside features the lo-slung afterhours psychedelia of "Glendale Blvd Boogie" and the dusty, hip-hop inspired broken beats of the title track.

Helfand EP (140 gram vinyl 12")

  1. Mimis (5:15)
  2. Helfand (5:31)
  3. Adax_PCP (6:06)
  4. Scalex (4:42)
Review: The Axces label began last year with a split 12" from Kasper Marott and Alfredo92, and now the latter returns to the label he founded to present a full EP of interlocking electronics with an experimental, home-listening slant. "Mimis" centres around some wonderfully sculpted rhythms and a tasteful dose of dub processing, while "Helfand" takes things further out with dislocated machine chatter and bongo triggering that moves like electro without the 808 backbone. "Adax_PCP" is a crafty slice of crooked techno that plays out with a live, jammed vibe and a jazzy key refrain that brings some noticeable humanity into the track, and then "Scalex" completes the set with further synthetic wobbles around fractured rhythms that look beyond genre conventions to create something truly fresh.

  2. Let Go (feat Francesco Fratini - Reekee Trumpet mix) (7:41)
  3. Let Go (Reekee alternate version) (6:20)
Review: For the latest missive on his on-point Wrong Notes label, boss man Reekee has temped Angela Tarrant AKA Angel-A back to the label following her fine lead vocal on Vick Lavender's 2019 gem "Cosmic Love". "Let Go" is an effortlessly soulful number, with Kai Alce's incredible A-side version, which features some additional synth solos and keys by regular collaborator Chris Irvine, delivering the kind of deep, seductive and rolling workout that should appeal to DJs and dancers beyond the soulful house scene. Reekee takes over on the flip, firstly offering up a jazz-funk-fired broken beat "Trumpet Mix" (it includes some fine trumpet solos from pal Francesco Fratini) before delivering a deep, spacey and woozy deep house take (the "Alternate Version").

  2. Rossi - "Yen" (7:21)

  4. Xhz - "Some Soul" (8:14)
Review: The fourth release on BEEYOU comes from another stellar cast of emergent talents and underground operators, leading in with Julian Anthony and the garage-tinted tech house tough nut, "Raspberry Flurry". Rossi is up next with the cheeky, bouncy-as-hell "Yen" (watch out for that bassline), which sets us up nicely for the smooth strains being unfurled by Azire on the B-side. "Dats Rill" is soaked in mellow chords, but there's still plenty of slap in the drum section to keep the groove rolling. Xhz maintains the melodious vibe with the choice key chops of "Some Soul", with plenty of micro-sounds zipping around the production to keep things sprightly and playful too.

  4. Effortlessness (Benjamin Brunn Chrome Plated Diamonds version) (7:55)
Review: Since it was Area that started the Kimochi Sound revolution just under a decade ago, it seems fitting that the publicity-shy artist has delivered the label's first release of a new decade. There are no new Area tracks here though, but rather a quartet of fresh reworks of classic cuts. Natan H kicks off proceedings with a deep, hypnotic, trippy and undeniably wonky revision of "Dare To Be Different", before Leif weighs in with a deliciously melodious, soft-focus revision of picturesque track "The Face Yours Reminds Me Of". Benjamin Brunn takes over on Side B and delivers two contrasting versions on "Effortlessness": the deep, wayward electro-meets-dub house drowsiness of the "Gold Plated Diamonds" mix and the heady ambient techno brilliance of the "Chrome Plated Diamonds" mix.

  3. T3x3 - "Mother Fucking Shit" (5:27)
  4. T3x3 - "Baganoush" (5:23)
Review: Six months ago Laidlaw and Jamie Mannion launched a new offshoot of their beloved Beeyou imprint, Subee. The sub-label's second release showcases cuts from not one by two little-known producers. B0n is at the controls on side A, first delivering the colourful, bassline-driven house bounce of "Bitch Face", before reaching for the squelchy electronics, ear-catching synths and booming sub-bass on "What's That". Over on side B T3x3 delivers two funky fusions of UK garage, tech-house and deep house. "Mother F*cking Sh*t" sees the producer pepper a snappy two-step beat with deep analogue bass, dubbed out tech-house riffs and quirky electronics, while "Baganoush" sounds like an unlikely collaboration between Chez Damier, MJ Cole and Sheffield swingers Swag (look 'em up, kids).

Human (12")

  1. Human (Full Experience) (12:16)
  2. Human (Inner Experience) (7:52)
Review: Long-serving German producer Lars Bartkhun has been rather quiet of late, with his last release of note being 2018's superb hook-up with fellow organic deep house fusionist Trinidadian Deep on Neroli. So has this new single been worth the wait? We'd emphatically say yes. "Human" is a sun-kissed slice of house posivity that wraps jazzy horns, sparkling pianos and colourful synthesizer sounds around a groove that's two parts shuffling Latin rhythms and three parts jacking house. The A-side "Full Experience" version, which clocks in at a smidgeon below 13 minutes, is particularly wonderful. That said the Rhodes-laden "Inner Experience" mix, a kind of tech-tinged, piano-heavy deep house dub, is also rather fine.

Review: The EYA Records crew continues their trip into a new musical direction with the Lonewolf series, this time offering up a split 12" between two distinctive techno producers. Bladymore Galaxy, otherwise known as Riccardo Buccirossi, brings some effervescent synthscapes to bear on his side of the record. There's an old-skool sensibility to the production - all uptempo drums and layer upon layer of sparkling sci-fi melodics - but there's equally a welcome fresh energy and emotional honesty embedded in Buccirossi's style that makes it so joyous to listen to. Belgian producer Innershades brings a punchier style informed by electro and trance - the perfect sound to lose yourself to as the dry ice creeps around and the sun starts rising over the dancefloor.

  1. Traffic Jam (7:31)
  2. Bus Stop (7:06)
Review: Matthew "Bushwacka!" B may not be as high profile a producer as he once was, but it's worth remembering that he was once one of the leading lights of both the early UK tech-house movement and the recently revived breakbeat house sound. The two tracks featured here touch on both styles in a roundabout way, and were first released way back in 1997. "Traffic Jam" is an insatiable, funk-fuelled peak-time workout that sees the London scene mainstay pepper a vintage, electro-influenced breakbeat house groove with UK garage style bass, fizzing scratch sounds, warm deep house chords and selected vocal samples. "Bus Stop" meanwhile is jaunty and melodious, with chiming, ear-pleasing riffs riding crunchy house drums and the kind of booming bassline that was all the rage in London at the time of recording.

Review: 7 Days Entertainment chief Big Strick has always encouraged his kids to make music; here, his youngest son makes his debut on the imprint with a raw, analogue-heavy collection of Motor City deep house cuts. There's plenty of variety across the four tracks, with Strick junior (who goes under the alias Butterbandz) skipping between sparse, melodious warmth (the tuneful and spaced out "Monkey See"), snappy, synth-heavy haziness (the rather groovy "If You Don't Dance", featuring the spoken word vocals of pal Marc), locked-in late night dreaminess ("Free Roaming", where bleeping synth sounds and ear catching chords rise above snappy beats and a chunky bassline) and stab-happy, trance-influenced tech-house ("Hellraiser (BDB)").

  2. Teddy (Caserta's Basement dub) (4:53)
Review: With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Caserta and the rest of the Bridge Boots crew have decided to offer-up something decidedly glassy-eyed and loved-up - specifically two fresh bootleg re-makes of Teddy Pendergass's 1978 Philadelphia Soul classic "When Somebody Loves You Back". The seven-inch singles boasts two distinctively different versions. On the A-side you'll find the "Rooftop Mix", a striped-back blend of dub disco and boogie in which Pendergrass's fine vocals rise above a rubbery bassline, colourful '80s soul synths and toe-tapping beats. Over on the B-side Caserta flips the script, layering selected snippets of Pendergrass's vocal over a deep, dark and bass-heavy house groove. It's sub-titled the "Basement Dub" and that's exactly what it is.

  2. Lock N' Load (4:57)
  3. Cut I (5:42)
  4. Cut II (5:09)
  5. Cut III (5:20)
Review: The grooves are heavy and dubby but still resolutely house-oriented as William Caycedo steps up to Dungeon Meat with his first EP in a couple of years. "Rock It" perfects the lean and mean groove - just a nasty drum jack and a big subby bassline, and utterly infectious with it. "Lock N' Load" follows a similar trajectory, although functions more as a tool than a standalone track. "Cut I" is a little more bubbly in its demeanour while still following the formula of drums, bass and little else. "Cut II" has a sweet bassline that will hook the dancers in, while "Cut III" keeps the pressure up with its nagging hats and subtle rhythmic fills. This is one for the DJs, but don't be fooled - there's bags of attitude tucked within these stripped back jams.

  4. Astrid (6:58)
Review: Over the last few years, we've heard plenty of reworks of obscure, Cold War-era cuts from Eastern Europe, though few from the then Soviet Union. The shadowy CCCP Edits series, which here makes its bow, promises to set the record straight. There's plenty to set the pulse racing, from the bubbly acid bass, bustling funk breaks and hip-house breaks of "Malodym" and "Ya Zdes" (the latter with added deep house drowsiness and Balearic intent), to the spoken male vocals, high-tempo electro beats and lo-fi guitars of "Knopochki". Best of all though is closing cut "Astrid", which isn't really Russian at all, but rather an extra-percussive, bass heavy samba-house rework of an old Astrud Gilberto track. We'll forgive them though as it's really rather good.

His back catalogue is mighty, packed full of gems and rarely aired. Fortunately No Speakers know what's what, and they've invited Clark to drop some serious Motor City firepower on us, leading in with the aptly named pimp-chat-laden slow burner "The Heat". After the stunning original, label boss El Prevost steps up with a crooked drum funk take on the track before Ben Sims slams down a formidable techno jacker of a remix. Peter Rocket completes the set with an acidic breaks version for the wig-out crew.

Review: If the rich history of US gospel soul, funk and disco gets your juices flowing, you need this new 12" from Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell in your life. As with many of the storied producer's edit-focused 12" singles, it has been pressed in limited quantities and should therefore be grabbed before all the copies disappear. On the A-side he offers up a tidy, dancefloor-focused tweak of Crowns of Glory's hard-to-find 1976 gospel soul cut "Lord, Look At Your People", brilliantly teasing out the intro before unleashing the song in all its inspiring righteousness. Over on the flip Clausell turns his attention to the Clavinet-heavy, Blaxploitation-era gospel disco anthem that is Keith Barrow's equally as inspired 1977 gem "A World Of Lonely People".

Review: The worldly wide Far Our label turns its attention to some fascinating house sounds from Ivan Mamao Conti. "Katmandu" is all bendy bass and tropical drums, steamy humidity and sensuous synths. Pablo Valentino flips it into warm and jazzy number for cosy basement clubs that harks back to the 90s, and Jazzanova then layer in plenty of the golden instrumentals and key playing that makes the music come alive. The closing remix is all Moodymann vibes with its rough kicks and claps, funk bass and lived-in aesthetic. This is classy house music from front to back.

Review: While the title of Hivern Discs' excellent "Fragments" series may suggest a kind of odds-and-ends approach to A&R, each of the four volumes to date has been anything but sketchy and throwaway. This fifth instalment is every bit as alluring as its predecessors. Check first Cooper Saver's clandestine chugger "Tell" - all druggy modular vibrations, echoing Horror organs and foreboding chords - before turning your attention to the tuneful Boards Of Canada style lead lines and sparse, lo-fi house beats of Pional's "Purple". Arguably even better is the stripped-back, acid-driven headiness of Marc Pinol's "Vol De Nit", while Velmondo's "Transubstantiation" is a fine slo-mo freak out full of devilishly pitched-down drums, weirdo electronics and synthesized marimba melodies.

Review: Cornucopia is an elusive figure who lets his melodies and textures take centre stage. Now it is the Multinotes label who come calling for some of his magic, and boy does the artist come through. "Before Anyone Else" is a mini epic that journeys to the stars on a loose, off grid pattern of keys that never stop evolving. The succulent drums power things along in frictionless fashion while B-side "Bats & Birds" settles into an even more unhurried and elongated groove. It's a mystic world of far sighted synths and gently drifting solar winds that sooth mind, body and soul.

Review: Is there a more positive, soulful and life-affirming dancefloor anthem out there than Roy Davis Jr and Peven Everett's 1996 jam "Gabriel"? As many will be aware, it has long been sought of as a classic, with soulful house, deep house, US and UK garage DJs all championing it back in the day. This white vinyl reissue boasts all of the mixes featured on the original 12". Perhaps the most famous version is the rolling, bass-heavy two-step flex of the "Live Garage" mix that opens side B, but there's plenty to set the pulse racing elsewhere. The driving, jazzy-but-stomping "Words To Give By" version has been annoyingly overlooked over the years, while the "Tambourine Dub" is deliciously sweaty and driving in the best possible way.

Review: Here's something to warm the cockles of even the stoniest of hearts: an impressively percussive, Mbalax-influenced take on Detroit style deep house from Julion De Angelo and recent Workshop artist Viola Klein. De Angelo handles side A, delivering two tracks that flit woozy male vocal samples, twinkling piano motifs and dusty, ultra-deep musical flourishes with drums that sit somewhere between African tribal workouts and Moodymann style MPC-driven house beats. Viola Klein's flipside suite of tracks is, if anything, even more percussive, with the dense drums and hazy chords of "We (Part One)" being followed by the ghetto-tech influenced high-tempo beats, hand percussion and fluid piano of WhoDat collaboration "We (Part Two)" and the Sabar drums and ambient chords of hectic closing cut "We (Part Another Part)".

Review: Back in the late 1990s French twosome DJ Deep and Julien Jabre released a handful of fine - and now hard to find - EPs as "The Deep". 1997's "The Earth EP" was arguably the strongest of the lot, hence this re-mastered reissue from the on-point Mint Condition camp. Heading up the EP is "Love Your Brother", a fine fusion of swinging, tech-tinged grooves, US garage style organ stabs and effortlessly soulful vocal samples that sounds every bit as far-sighted in 2020 as it did back in the day. Over on the flip you'll find the stripped back and slightly spacey sounding "Love Your Dub" revision, as well as original flipside "Gratiot's Tiger", a slightly woozier and dreamier chunk of deep house/tech-house fusion.

Bondage Games Part 5 (reissue) (heavyweight orange vinyl 12" limited to 200 copies)

Review: Since 2006, Leipzig-based Bondage Music have had a consistent output of quality deep/tech house grooves by an all-star cast from Mihai Popoviciu, Markus Homm, to Pornbugs and NTFO. Once again showing off their sonic diversity on a various artists EP, "Bondage Games Part 5" features Deep Vibes main man Sascha Dive pursuing his newfound love of cavernous and glacial dub techno sounds on the stark "Dark Night", while label staple Frink goes deeper into the late night on the slinky and seductive bounce of "Vega". Similarly on the flip, Toman serves up some sensual mood music on his offering "Time To Time" and finally Philipp Gonzalez goes for a moody and atmospheric vibe on dancefloor drama "Open Hips".

Cat: DDS 03. Rel: 03 Mar 20
  1. Cosmoscats (6:11)
  2. Life In Thundera (6:57)
Review: Lisbon-based Frenchman has been one of house music's pin up boys over the last decade. Both solo but also as part of Apollonia, he has toured the world non stop, bringing more tasteful sounds to the masses than you might expect from a DJ of his reputation. He's been busy in the studio cooking up some rare treats for the third release from DDS. "Cosmoscats" is glitchy, twitchy, minimal styled and throwback tech house from the golden era of Terry Francis et al, while "Life In Thundera" is a more direct and tripped out late night house groove.

  3. Let Them Come (Gokin vocal remix) (6:34)
  4. Let Them Come (Gokin instrumental remix) (6:32)
Review: Second time around for Dan Electro's "Let Them Come", an extra-percussive chunk toe-tapping, hip-shaking gospel house brilliance that first surfaced on the producer's 2009 album "Bite The Hand That Feeds You". Sadly his superb original version isn't present, though the fresh remixes are more than up to scratch. Greg Gauthier handles Side A, serving up vocal and instrumental takes built around Church organ stabs, restless deep house drums and a killer electronic bassline. They're rather good all told, though Gokin's flipside vocal and instrumental revisions are arguably even better. Re-imagining the track as a gospel-fired slab of dreamy deep house, Gokin smothers a driving beat in hazy chords and the kind of insatiable electric piano solos usually associated with classic 1970s jazz-funk wig-outs.

Review: Wonky and off-kilter cuts from London-based producer Eleanor Pinfold aka Elles. This release is her first for Violet's Lisbon-based imprint Naive, and follows her 2019 release "emo_ecstasy_everything" on their experimental sub-label Naivety. Eloquently described as "a melodic ode to melancholy moments spent in clubs and broken romances captured in the snapshots of a strobe", UK club sounds of various eras definitely permeate these tracks. From the intoxicating slo-mo bass of "Gotchu" to the cheeky 2-stepper "Put On Our Classics" or the classic house throwback sounds of "End Of The Nite". All life-affirming vocals and hands in the air pianos that hark back to the namesake of the EP's title.

  2. Old School Song (remix) (8:39)
Review: Emancipation Avenue is Karega Ani and Swatara Olushola, a pair who pay tribute to the history and tradition of proper r&b with a first release on Music and Power. And they sure make a real impact with "Old School Song", which is built on a kinetic broken beat, with wooden hits and squelchy bass forming a dynamic groove while gorgeous neo-soul vocals soar high above. Informed by the classics but at the same time sounding thoroughly contemporary, it's a real gem. The flipside remix is a steamier and more humid deep house track that is intensely emotive and washes over you in waves.

  2. Put You Back Into It (Quentin Harris remix) (8:17)
Review: Second time around for Peven Everett's "Put Your Back Into It", which has become an in-demand record since it first hit stores 10 years ago. This official reissue replicates the track listing of the original pressing. Everett's original version is an undulating, soft-spun deep house delight, with the producer adding his own superb, soul-soaked versions to a backing track rich in shuffling, floor-friendly drums, warm bass and jazzy keys. On the flipside, remixer Quentin Harris gives the track a little more bass-heavy bump, employing slightly heavier drums and some rich chords, whist making more of Everett's impeccable Fender Rhodes work.

Review: Fabrizio Fattore made a big debut on Gigi Testa's World Peace Music label and now follows it up in fine fashion. The Naples producer is part of the NEUHM camp/family/club and oversees the 30th release from Visions Recordings. He serves up two gems with "Ojibwa" being the first and making something of a deep space opus. It's widescreen, filled with evocative sci-fi imagery and channels plenty of early Detroit majesty. On "Namid", the pads disappear to infinity, the synths sing and the beats stay deep before closing things out in more tribal fashion with a "Lost Tribe Dub" of "Ojibwa".

Review: Francesca Mackay is fast becoming a rising star in the underground scene of London. A favourite amongst promoters and DJs alike, her eclectic style and a passion for digging well beyond her 20 years of age has also led to her first release. The cold winter months was the perfect inspo for 'The Inside Out', where broken rhythms and sub bass culture sounds merge with minimal/tech house grooves. Best heard on the hypnotic breaks of "Nine Tens", the electro influenced futurism of "Tao" and the emotive, acid-inflected IDM of "Perelandra" - an impressive debut.

Review: New York house don Fred P is back after serving up some sumptuous album sounds under his Black Jazz Consortium alias. This time he has both feet firmly in the club, rooted to the floor, and his head is lost in the groove. As ever these are chunky, hypnotic affairs with real bass weight and just enough detail to keep your mind occupied as you travel ever further down the rabbit hole. There's glitchiness in "For The Dome" and soul in "Construction", while "Alphabet City" is a real bumper and "Turn Up" brings the darkness. High quality stuff, as always.

Review: Here's something of a surprise: an EP from perennial deep house and disco eccentric Maurice Fulton on Peggy Gou's hyped Gudu imprint. The Sheffield-based American joins forces with Gou on A-side "Jigoo", with the pair peppering a squelchy synth bassline and Chicago house style drums with smile-inducing piano riffs and swirling electronics. Fulton reverts to weirdo disco mode on B-side opener "Not Sure I Would", a hard-to-describe number that contains many of his usual aural flourishes (live-sounding drums, bonkers bass, Clavinets, spiraling synth sounds etc), before flitting between African style hand percussion and taut machine drums on fine percussion workout "One Itself".

On his new offering 'Giarmata Plutonium', expect rolling Rominimal sounds, like the disorienting afterhours hypnotism of A side cuts "A Good Colonel Is Hard To Find" or "Unmark My Words" - this is exactly the kind of lean and subtle tackle the likes of Rhadoo or Mihigh would play on a Sunday morning. On the flip, it's all about the captivating sound design of the energetic epic "Warrior Not Solider".

  4. Now & Forever (5:05)
Review: This is record #7 for Generation Next on the 7 Days imprint and it does not disappoint. G. N returns with a powerful 4 song EP that bangs from start to finish. The title and artwork for the EP are inspired from the clothing brand The Pines Collective (@thepinesco), started by Generation Next and a friend in 2015. An energetic Dance Bitch starts off the project with a vocal sample from G.N; accompanied by vicious bass, drum tracks and psychedelic synths. Bundy is a more toned down piece that captures the essence of a pure underground dance beat. It is raw, rugged and ready to make your feet move. The start of side B is more of what we have come to expect from Generation Next, a groovy house track full of emotion and energy. Butterfly Effect throws you in an upbeat trance of melodic pianos, unpolished synths and calculated drum and percussion tracks. To close the 7th EP off is the loose and fun Now and Forever. It shows the ever so present versatility of now 25-year-old Generation Next.

Review: German percussionist Kolja Gerstenberg makes no attempt to hide his love for the drums on this razor sharp drop for Lumberjacks In Hell, building on his previous outings on Suol and Smile For A While. The drums are sizzling hot on "Feel Yo", tastefully overdriven and embellished with some MPC-style sample juggling that should satisfy those who like their house tracks hot as Dante's inferno. "Where They're From" is no slouch either, keeping the pressure up with a liberal dose of soul poured in for good measure. The keys and live bass on "Want You" add to the feverish mood, and then "Get Over" sends things spiraling out on a Latin-spiced cosmic journey.

  4. Gritty Part: Nitty Gritty (5:13)
Review: Natural Midi has been one of the primary homes to Scott Grooves' tunes, easily the most underrated producer from the Detroit area, and he's back on his own label with four new beauties. Grooves has been churning out exquisite deep house bangers since the 90's, a very specific brand of dance music that incorporates everything from jazz, to disco and funk; his basslines are always warm and soothing, while his percussion is dusty and the synth lines musical. In an age where 'outsider' house rules, his grounded approach is always a breath of fresh air to us. The opener "Finished" is a funky house swinger choc-a-bloc with gorgeous claps and stuttering toms, and "Inspiration Sound" scratches the 4/4 off for a bit of broken trip-hop - a certified winner. On side B, "The Sauce" is moody, spaced-out and offers subtle keys, while "Nitty Gritty" slams out a dicing little percussion with a lo-fi feel. Absolutely terrific.

Review: 20/20 Vision have firmly gaffa taped their flag to the electro antennae with "Exit Planet Earth", a new compilation series celebrating veterans and newcomers in the business of tweaked out machine funk. The Hacker is up first with "Positif/Negatif", a rubbery, FX-laden workout with plenty of uneasy space around the core rhythm section. 214 follows up with the decidedly creepy, sound design-embellished "Testy Robot". On the flip Reedale Rise brings something a bit livelier with the plush synth flex pinging through "Lux". Derek Carr completes the set with "The Gap", a lush slice of melancholic machine dreaming for mellower moments.

Review: REPRESS ALERT: In an age of over-information, it's refreshing to see Aurora Halal take her time with the Mutual Dreaming label, which notches up just its third release since launching in 2014. It's also the New York scene leader's first record in three years, and it's worth the wait. Some elements are familiar - Halal still has a keen instinct for heavy-hearted synth lines shaped out in bold curves, but the level of expression going into these tracks makes each one stand out like a striking painting. From the eerie mood of "Fattal 22" to the crunchy bleep workout "Nasty II", the character just oozes out of Halal's productions. With a remix from Wata Igarashi thrown into the mix as well, this is a record loaded with fresh and powerful takes on techno.

  1. Redlight

  3. The Rhythm
Review: The pleasingly unpredictable Adeen label returns with another record of outstanding and distinctive quality. Scott Hess is an emergent talent, originally from Detroit but now based in Bangkok, who channels the heat and clamour of the Thai capital. The result is a funkified strain of house with rich synths and some satisfyingly organic licks. "Redlight" is the heavy lifter, all muscular bass synths and a nagging, twitchy groove, while "Circle Of Funk" brings a more introspective tone embellished by some gorgeous slap bass. "The Rhythm" pushes a more steamy kind of funk that nods to the Detroit house grandmasters.

Review: Banoffee Pies' popular "Black Label" series continues with another multi-artist missive packed to the rafters with tech-tinged fare rich in dubby sub-bass and crunchy two-step beats. As you'd expect for the almost-too-cool-for-school Bristol imprint, all four tracks are undeniably on trend. That's not a criticism though, because there's much to admire throughout. We're particularly enjoying the bleeping melodies, echoing, reggae-style chords, dreamy pads and tough two-step beats of Alex Falconer's "Hiero", though the body-popping acid electro brilliance of Baby Rollen's "Swimming With Dolphins" is not far behind. Tito Mazzetta and Isai's collaborative closing cut, a sublimely bass-heavy chunk of early morning dub techno/tech-house fusion, is also impressive.

Review: The second sampler for Rhythm Section International's fifth anniversary compilation has landed, and like its predecessor is packed to the rafters with must-check gear. Duke Hugh kicks things off with the short-but-sweet, Rhodes-powered soundscape "Zoe", before Research Club delivers some bubbly pitched-down acid ("Cafe Iguana") and Paula Tepe jams out some quirky proto-house goodness ("Panamericana"). Over on side B Jad Lee (as Jad & The) takes over with some deep, reggae-influenced breakbeat house, before handing the baton to Shy One with the deep, bruk-up dreaminess of "House Party". Session Victim provides a fittingly strong conclusion with the quirky deep house drowsiness of "Gheister".
