A perfect cut of crisp bass-driven house music from Bristolian Niall Cropper, "Forever" is the freshest way to enjoy this season's must-have deep house sound. Not content with the overblown '90s sampling or big bouncing bass usually found within the resurgence of his chosen genre, Cropper's picked an intimidating, creeping bass to slide underneath progressively euphoric verses of synth melodies and vocal snips. Impossible to resist, this will be the soundtrack to your Saturday night for months to come. Includes the radio edit.
Austrian duo Klaue & Tatze make their debut on Bear Fresh and the result is an instant flex back to garage's mid-90s golden era where bold soulful vocals and funky grooves ruled the roost. With heat steaming from every organ lick and bass drop, it's an instant floor-strutter. Remix-wise Scullious adds subversive, sludgy bass tones while Dosage adds more beef to the beats and polishes up the organ licks nicely. Euphoric soul throughout. Bring it down? Bring it up more like!

This meeting of minds between party-orientated DJ Krissi B and RnB vocalist is a match made in dancefloor heaven. "I Want U" is a fizzy bang of handbaggy beats, hypey melodies and a touch of bassline bottom end. Lou's infectious vocals are all over the different versions of the song, including the hands-in-the-air original, the dark and fast wobble banger of the EJ Da Farda mix and best of all: Krissi B's own 2-step garage mix.
