Quadrant, Iris, Ulterior Motive - "Intuition" (6:04)
Review: Guidance strike again! Two sides, two vibes: first up the label bossmen Ulterior Motive continue their ripping vein of form with the weapon's grade stepper "Trip Hammer" that hits with serious space around every gritty funk element. Flip for a hook-up with dynamic US duo Quadrant & Iris as we're taken down a wormhole of dark delights at a white knuckle pace that doesn't let up. Huge shouts to Guidance right here.

Review: Love Notes turns its affections towards the Windy City with this exemplary 12" from Chicago producer Shmoo, who is no slouch in the energy department when rolling out the pumped up deep house delights of "Sidehacker". "Intellect's Intuitive Waste" is no slouch either, taking a brighter sunshine approach compared to "Sidehacker"s nocturnal veneer, and "Limited Trance" keeps the jack up while letting the additional tones and textures take things deeper. Garrett David gets busy with "Intellect's Intuitive Waste", creating a crafty remix steeped in intriguing percussion without losing that housey focus that defines the Love Notes approach.
Review: Newcastle duo Moonlit Vision are back with a right killer on new German imprint Phorus, who presented a great inaugural release by Niko Maxen a little while back. The Stood Beneath The Sun EP features the deep down and dirty groove of "Intuition" (which would go down a treat at the afterhours), while the bass driven and percussive energy of "Soul Love" is more suited to the beach party - later that afternoon. It receives a ripper of a rework by London stalwart Rich NxT, which is quite fitting as the duo appeared on his What NxT imprint earlier this year. A must have for fans of funked up and tripped-out tech house in the vein of Djebali, Archie Hamilton or Jack Wickham. Tip!
