Review: Dusky has certainly made the most of running the 17 Steps label. Astonishingly, this is the duo's 16th release on the imprint since it launched back in 2014. As usual, there's plenty to admire across the four-track EP, starting with the poignant chord progressions, rubbery synth-bass, "Show Me Love" organ stabs and trippy late night atmospherics of "Cold Heart". Their penchant for hustling low-end and grandiose synthesizer flourishes is explored further on "Psychic Life Coach", while the superb "Bowed" sees them doffing a cap to both John Carpenter and Patrick Cowley. For those seeking fluttering riffs, heavy analogue bass and breezy, summery vibes, closer "Balfour Betty" should be essential listening.

Review: Japan's leading drum & bass ambassador Makoto shocked the world earlier this year with the surprise announcement he'd signed to Hospital. Then boom; before we know it, we're dealing with a whole album. His fifth so far, it's every bit as lavish and vibrant as you'd expect. From the soul searching vocal hurricane of Karina Ramage on "I Don't Wanna Wake Up" to the immense soul of the DRS-fronted title track via the epic ravey uplift of "Amber's Song" and the heads-down story-telling funk of "Fancy Free", there's a great balance of dancefloor edge and timeless songwriting running throughout as Makoto reminds us just how entrenched he is in drum & bass culture.

Review: Smokin' Riddims long success can be linked to Jaydan's keen ear for balanced tracks, every track cuts a fine balance between, noisy, bouncing, rough and rolling and that means great dancefloor music. This new EP is a collection of co-labs, three of which are with the main man himself. 'Rubbish' is anything but, the aggressive track uses swaths and a stabbing bass to create an intense atmosphere. 'Good A Dead' uses jungle breakdowns in-between more modern drum patterns with grinding metallics and shadowy pads. '2049's rumbling bassline is the star of the EP.

Review: One of the savviest axis-flexors in the D&B / jungle game, DJ Hybrid has an all seeing eye across the soundboy spectrum with his two labels and mixed-style signature. Here the full focus is on his flagship label Audio Addict with his first exclusive-powered mix album that covers all the crucial corners. Every track rattles and shakes with energy and subversion: the jungle chaos of his own "Mix & Blend", the iced-out atmos and toxic drop of Swerve's "Massive & Crew", the gunshot bass holes caused by Lost Dynamics "New Funk", the jaw-dropping ruthlessness of Ray Keith's take on "Badboy", the list goes on... DJ Hybrid levels up once more.

Review: Dutchman Bas Roos is the latest producer to contribute to Exploited's Shir Khan-curated Black Jukebox series. He kicks off a fine EP via "Downtown", a lumpy, bumpy chunk of dusty, piano-laden peak-time goodness driven forwards by bustling drums and a killer disco style bassline. You'll find more blissful piano solos on the similarly hustling, low-slung "One Way", which also makes great use of impassioned disco-soul vocal snippets and restless handclap samples. Elsewhere, "Take Life Easy" is an impeccable hybrid of jazzy disco samples and swinging deep house percussion, while "Ugly House" sounds like a long lost collaboration between Kevin Saunderson's Inner City Project, Chez Damier and Sheffield-based dusty house specialist Thatmanmonkz.

Review: Building on a healthy body of collaborative work, neuro A-listers Phace and Mefjus combine their schnitzel collections for their debut collabo EP. A full flavour four pack that still leaves time for a pint, we're treated to some of their raffish and unruly tracks to date; the techno glitches and weird switches of "Wastemen", the jumpy riff flavour of "Malmaison", the electrified funk frazzles of "Decisions" and the pure purring bass and sci-fi drama of "Swerve" all comprise some of their best collaborations to date. Time to get wasted.

from $2.03
Review: Usually when man hits road with a VIP it goes harder, right? Not in the case of this fugly roller from a true king among junglists T>I. Here he's taken the heavily supported and highly distinctive bassline of last year's banger "The Gorgon" and pressurised it into a much more physical sub bass sensation to subtle heads-down effect. The same can be said for his take on Damage Report's "Snooper" as he switches out the in-you-face weirdness of the OG bassline and teases us with the texture over a much more dense sub twist. Basically the bigger the systems you play this on, the better they sound.

Review: Before the world went re-edit crazy, Frico AKA DJ Friction was putting out rock-solid 12" singles of solid scalpel reworks. These days, he rarely bothers with wax, but his appetite for re-editing classics and little known cuts remains. His latest two-track offering is typically tasteful, delivering life-affirming reworks of the artist forever known as the King of Pop. Both "Everybody" and "Lovely One" are typical of Quincy Jones' productions during the disco era, with darting horn lines and sweeping orchestral movements wrapping themselves around killer grooves. Frico's edits extend the tracks in all the right places, with the producer wisely choosing to retain the familiar vocals whilst offering club-friendly arrangements. As a result, both edits sound like party anthems in waiting.

from $2.03
Review: Tale Of Us have revolutionised their Afterlife label over the last few years. Once upon a time, their imprints were about their specific music, a minimalistic take on deep house and soul-ridden tech. This new EP, however, is a perfect example of their recent branching out, with the opening remix of "Monument" being carefully re-stylised by Magazine's head honcho, the ever-impressive Barnt (recently of Hinge Finger recruitment). European techno veteran Stephan Bodzin comes through with a comparatively deeper, dreamier wave of sleek techno, guided here by melancholic male vocals, whereas the moodier Adriatique hands in a much colder, more calculated techno reinterpretation. Solid.

Review: Having reached its seventeenth volume, the Total series is making its transition from adolescence into adulthood, but it has lost none of its youthful charms. Like previous editions, it features highlights from the German label's recent releases - including anthems from Laurent Garnier and The Orb - alongside some new gems. The latter category sees Thomas/Mayer deliver the tripped out, acid playfulness of "25", while Kompakt regular Superpitcher chimes in with the angelic vocals and skipping groove of "In My Head". Speaking of otherworldly moments, Jurgen Paape's "Always Disko" is a spaced out disco track from another dimension. Trends and fads come and go, but Kompakt will forever remain a constant, defined by its Total series.

Both "Riddims" and "LowDefign" are up there with Serum and Benny L on that pranged out new groan flex, "Pathogen" is more directly trippy and sinister with its molten bassline and punchy cymbal-slapping drums while "Far" sets fire to your house and stands on the street mooning at you when you run out for safety. Ultrah sound.

Review: Welcome to "Rollers Club" where it's happy hour all day and night long. Bou will be your consummate host, and he's rolling deep in decorated company. For the sublime game of contrasts that is the opening tune NAMF helps him balance warm jazzy chords with wriggling grunty jump riff with insane and truly unique effect. Elsewhere fellow gutter-bass showman Telekom joins the party for some grizzly, brain rattling bass on "Violet", Bou goes solo for the brilliantly twitchy, sharp-shooting switch up "Poison" and the man like T>I strolls in casually late for the last, and indeed gulliest track. No antidote required.

Amens and horns create the relaxed vibe, while the vocal gives us something to grasp onto. The Dub version is as you'd expect, mellowed, slowed and coated in echoes.

Review: Having set our world alight with his third Ilian Tape EP, 2012, back in the spring, Munich man Skee Mask delivers another essential collection of loose-limbed, broken techno workouts. Typically, he's on point from the word go, enveloping swinging, off-kilter techno breakbeats with swirling chords and cascading melodies on brilliant opener "Inti". His love of African-influenced polyrhythms is explored further on the ghostly, percussion-rich club cut "Kappelberg Chant" (which, incidentally, makes great use of choral chants), while "Routine" is a warm, loved-up and evocative tribute to rave-era British breakbeat-house. His debt to British dance music's formative years also comes to the fore on killer proto-jungle jam "Skreet Lvl Dub".

Review: Following an extended hiatus, Daco returns to Paper Recordings with an EP stuffed full of high-grade dancefloor moments. Opener "The Uprise" is particularly potent, featuring as it does a killer combination of "I Feel Love" style arpeggio bass, Kraftwerkian computer vocals, driving beats, spacey chords and some superbly manipulated spoken word samples ("the money, the drugs, the oil, the guns, the war, the uprising!"). It's followed by a proto-house and Italo-disco influenced alternative version that is arguably even closer in tone to vintage Giorgio Moroder, while bonus cut "Faith" is a deep, woozy and dreamy chunk of Balearic house laden with melancholic strings and a superb vocal by Mikey Raphael.

Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: Okay hands up, who did it? Who enraged Joker to this phenomenal level of bass funk fury? Go to the top of the class whoever you are because this is absolute fire. "Mad Night" sets the tone with unruly oscillations and broken glass shards of talkbox devilry, "Melkweg Bass" pays homage to one of Amsterdam's finest dancehalls with wonked out grunts, a drop into pure 23rd century jazz and an ace little sweary glitch before "Medium Core" goes HAM with the off-grid oddities and rah-ting lasers. One of his most uncompromising and deliciously off-centre releases to date; no one does it like Joker.

Bcee's rallied up troops old and new for 16 exclusives (and 11 label classics) on this accomplished catch-all document that represents what his label is all about. The end result is beautiful collection that ranges from the most starlit groove crusade (GLXY's "Antwerp", Spectrasoul's jazz-speckled twist on LSB's "Rolling Sideways", Need For Mirror's dusky finger clicker "Marina Blue") to slightly heavier soul-shakers (The Invaderz heads-down freak-out "Do Devine", Lenzman's killer take on "The Hurting" and Muffler's soaring, scorching "Dark Flower") Spearhead are spoiling us right about now.

Review: British techno veteran Oliver Ho has released some fine material as Broken English Club since debuting the alias back in 2014. The English Beach, Ho's second BEC full-length and first for L.I.E.S, is the audio equivalent of a trip to a run-down North Sea coastal resort on a wet Wednesday in November. Full of end-of-days electronics, stripped-back industrial techno, moody minimal wave shufflers and bubbly EBM workouts, it's as authentic a tribute to early '80s electronic experimentalism as you're likely to hear all year. Highlights include the Nitzer Ebb style bounce of "Pylon", the foreboding, desolate electronica of "Rust Ballad", the angry electro moodiness of "Carrion" and the rolling, organ-laden autumnal bliss of "The English Beach".

Review: Following up the Cold Heart EP by label bosses Dusky, 17 Steps present a new one by Kiwi: the London producer's debut on the label. Having recently released on labels such as Futureboogie, Correspondant and Optimo Music, his distinctive sound is a mix of Italo, techno and electro. The uplifting epic "Marmora's Theme" is powered by a razor sharp arpeggio and balanced out by those hands in the air style piano loops. We were about to draw comparisons to scene heroes Tuff City Kids, but whaddya know: they're up next on the remix! They work their magic as always with a retro flavoured piece of dancefloor drama: they found it fitting to throw in a gnarly Reese bassline too. Epic!

Review: Essex boy EGO TRIPPIN is jump up's man of the moment he's tracks have been destroying floors for a hot sec and now he's unleashing those VIP's we've been hearing for months. As with all VIPs the tracks stay true to originals with tiny tweaks. 'Filthy Criminals' see's extra layers added to the main melody at different pitches, bringing new textures to the track, and the odd little skip giving illusions of double drops. While 'Two Types' echoes and prolongs, if you're a fan of the first two this is a no brainer.

Review: It's arrived! We're proud to announce the seventh studio album HA! by British beatmaker Jon Kennedy via his always impressive eponymous imprint. The smoky "Twilight" gets the LP off to a fine start, with some dope Jazzmatazz styled vibes happening. Kennedy then delves deeper (and darker) into the night on killer jams like "Burn Me", a live junglist stepper, balanced out by 'liquid' elements reminiscent of LTJ Bukem. Similarly, "Iron Lung" is undeniably a tribute of sorts to his former stomping ground: Bristol. Here he goes for a modern reinterpretation of drum and bass via deep dubstep: this one will get those lighters in the air, for sure! Elsewhere, he proves that he doesn't only appeal to the new generation; as the smooth and sultry nu-jazz of "Slave To The TV" proves. We must also mention the collaborations: Birmingham songstress Deirdre Gaddis lends her smooth as silk vocals to the exotic/psychedelically blunted groove of "More Things Change" while the straight talking Preacherman waxes lyrical on the state of things over the block rockin' beats of "Heaven". A fine selection of late night tales courtesy of Kennedy & Co. that will enrapture you from start to finish.

Review: Influential and prolific, Dave Lee has been one of house music's major proponents of soulful, disco-tinged, vocal tracks. Without question, he was instrumental in its development. Produced With Love is only the second ever Joey Negro album to be released and the first for more than 20 years. It proves that dance music with character still exists and rather than rely on sampling older records, the overwhelming majority of music is newly recorded. Rest assured that there's quite the supporting cast here, on the vocal front: the late great Diane Charlemagne on "Overnight Sensation", Canadian songstress and frequent Nick Holder collaborator Sacha Williamson on "I Recognize" and the legendary Linda Clifford on "Won't Let Go". Fellow London disco dons Horsemeat Disco collaborate on "Dancing Into The Stars" too. The second half of the collection focuses on Lee's impeccable remixes and yes: there is a version of "Must Be The Music" and a track by the inimitable Peven Everett entitled "Love Is Thicker Than Water" alongside several other gems.

Review: To date, Swiss quartet Alma Negra has carved a successful niche as makers of heavily percussive EP singles that look to the rhythms of Africa for inspiration. This outing for Heist Recordings draws on many similar influences, but shuffles further towards original production than their rework style back catalogue. Opener "Afrorleans" is a jaunty trip into shuffling Afro-house territory in the company of a cabal of Cajun musicians, while "Luanda Dub" is a booming, bass heavy late night trip full of swirling vocal samples and densely layered drum hits. If you are after some party-starting Afro-disco/deep house fusion of standout, then "Endless Summer" and a cracking Soulphiction remix of the same track will pushes a rubbery disco bassline to the fore to devastating effect.

Review: For many Londoners, it wouldn't be summer without the Notting Hill Carnival and Norman Jay's long-running Good Times Soundsystem. The hat-wearing MBE owner is celebrating 30 years of carnival parties this summer. What better excuse, then, for another breezy, party-centric trawl through the veteran DJ's epic record collection. As usual, the unmixed Good Times 30th Anniversary Edition features a selection of festival-friendly grooves, from dusty old disco, flute-sporting funk and classic soul to bouncy disco-house, head-nodding hip-hop and Red Stripe-swigging reggae riddims. By now, we all know what we're getting, but it's still great fun.

Review: Bristol's The Allergies (aka Moneyshot and Rackabeat) blew people's minds with their debut LP, As We Do Our Thing and now they are back with follow up, Push On. We're used to the pair effortlessly fusing funk, Northern soul and big beats but this time round they've expanded their horizons to also feature hip-hop, with UK MC veteran, Dr Syntax (The Mouse Outfit, Foreign Beggars) joining the fray. Some of the many highlights include the retro soul stomp of "Entitled To That", the Fatboy-goes-back-to-sixties Southern soul of "Since You've Been Gone" and the clavinet-driven funk of "Get Down On You".

Review: Over the last two decades, countless produdcers have sampled or remixed Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto", with St Germain famously using it as the basis for jazz-house classic "Rose Rouge". Only last month, it was re-shaped into a chunk of Balearic hip-hop bliss by Akshin Alizadeh on a fine 7-inch single. Now, Polish big guns Catz 'n' Dogz get their chance to re-imagine it for 21st century house dancefloors. The main "Remix" that kicks off proceedings is particularly potent, as the long-serving duo lace snippets of Shaw's vocal over a jaunty but driving, stab-heavy groove before unleashing an avalanche of mind-altering acid lines. The alternative "Beat Mix", which as the name suggests is all about densely layered percussion and sweat-soaked peak-time fun, is also superb.

Review: Lennard Poschmann may not be as famous as his artistic name sake, but as his first album for Live At Robert Johnson shows, he is keenly aware of electronic music's cinematic power. This is audible on the lush ambience of "Welcome" and "Zerphyx", while similarly emotive sounds are underpinned by a hyper-speed, Juan Atkins style rhythm on "Rise" and "A66", where a warm, buzzing bass supports Poschmann's sublime synths. At times, the album veers too close to other producer's tropes - the delicate "Situation" is the most Aril Brikha track ever made - but like his enigmatic predecessor, Wells throws the futuristic electro of "Trianon" and the bleep-laden soundtrack of "Sincere" to keep his audience guessing, in Third Man style, right till the very end.

Review: Following a productive 2016 in which he delivered superb material on labels including Dekmantel, Clone and Perc Tracks, Randomer returns to L.I.E.S for the first time since 2015. "Smokin" is a typically bombastic and bass-heavy affair, with the producer combining his usual metallic, industrial-tinged sounds and spacey electronics with a killer electro groove. It's little less than a genuine club roller that achieves a perfect balance between rhythmic funkiness and trippy eccentricity. you will then get the creepy, echo-laden hits, horror chic and panicked rhythms of "Velvet" and the dense, dusty late night techno throb of "Rye". While neither of the these tracks can match the thrills of "Smokin", they're both excellent mixing tools.

Review: Frankfurt innovator Rajko Muller returns as Isolee, working his magic this time for The Drifter's rather impressive Maeve imprint; which in recent times has brought us fantastic work by Ed Davenport, Baikal and Ripperton. "Pisco" is a slow burning groove with phased marimbas that cause a hypnotic dream state, while "L5 Syndrome" dives deeper: this smooth and introverted trip is definitely suited to the early night as it is for the afterhours and reminds us of his seminal, earlier works in the nineties for imprints like Playhouse. Finally, the title track is where Muller saves the best for last; this dubby, lo-slung groove is drenched in delayed and reverberated aesthetics. More great work by one of electronic music's true innovators.

Review: As we've learned in the past the Funk Hunk likes muscle, lots of disco muscle. His edits are never weak. So it's business as usual on Funkier Than That, his latest selection of edits. There are four cuts here to get up and down to. "Funkier Than That" is a snappy, Minneapolis-style majestic funker, "Pushin' On" is perky synth-pop and "Making Love" is fast, sweaty and a thrill a minute. Lastly "YYT Shake (Funk Hunk remix)" is a cool slice of vintage B-Boy hip-hop.

Review: The annual Cocoon Ibiza mix is back this summer, with the 2017 edition mixed by two top talents. Nastia is one of the hottest DJs in the world right now. The Ukrainian is headlining clubs and festivals around the globe, showcasing great skills and a vast musical knowledge. In addition, she runs the Propaganda imprint and has also run her own festival, Strichka. Her solid and driving mix features tracks by Luke, Slate, Terrence Dixon and Calibre among others. Taking care of the second disc is Frankfurt's favourite son Einzelkind: he man who runs three labels including JAX and the esteemed Pressure Traxx in addition to releases on local institutions Playhouse and Cecille. He is a no-nonsense DJ who has played the likes of fabric and Space, and as such has helped put his hometown of Frankfurt on the underground dance map. His mix is minimal and cerebral mix is comprised almost entirely of his own tracks, both solo and produced with the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Robin Scholz and Markus Fix.

Review: DJ ZINC- there's no denying he's a gatekeeper, tastemaker and all around musical mac Daddy, this EP is proof that everybody wants to work with him. This aptly named 'Full House' EP see's DJ ZINC team up with some of the hottest names in the game. Jack Master shares the wheel on opening track 'The Anvil' which has a jumping beat and high pitch sing along melody. 'Soup Dragon' with 'Shift K3y' is a fun and funky slab of floor filling 4/4 and features the voices of the Clangers and yep... the soup Dragon its favourite track of the EP. 'Gammy Elbow' includes the musical mind of Chris Lorenzo and delivers a show girl worthy drum beat at the beginning building anticipation until the drop reveals an almost EDM-esque hands in the air style synth. We expect to hear this at every freshers night in the country in the coming months. Other co-labs on this on include 'Push It' with Holy Goof, 'Interbass' with MJ Cole and 'Crawler' with My Nu Leng.

Review: Low Budget Family and Glenview Records regulars Simple Symmetry, AKA Russian brothers Sergey and Sasha Lipsky, are the latest outfit to join the Disco Halal revolution. Looking towards Persia for inspiration, the OST Version of "Plane Goes East" is an intoxicating, heady brew of chugging, bubbly synth arpeggio lines, cascading oriental melodies and opium den guitars. As cinematic as you'd expect - it feels like the theme tune from a yet-to-be-released, Istanbul-based horror flick - it gets the full synth-driven dub disco treatment on the accompanying Dance Version. The muscular dancefloor thrills continue on the flip, where "Voodoo Your Ex" gleefully joins the dots between thrusting Italo-disco and chant-heavy Turkish boogie.

Review: The recording career of Salzburg's Bernard Weiss, AKA Demuja, has followed the well-trodden path of multiple compilation appearances followed by well-received EPs for a couple of little-known labels. There's a feeling that he just needs a breakthrough, and this single on Jimpster's Freerannge label could provide it. Certainly, the four included tracks are amongst his strongest to date. Choose between the sumptuous, shuffling deep house dreaminess of "Move", the warehouse-friendly thrills of "B.o.o.m", the hard-wired Italo-disco revivalism of "Into My Brain" - all raging arpeggio lines and dreamy pads - and the fireside-warm deep house/disco fusion of "Turn Me On". The latter's fusion of live instrumentation, evocative vocal samples and rolling house drums is particularly inspiring.

Review: Cosmic-minded Brazilians get busy with Razor N Tape with an artistically presented eight track collection of native edits and originals. Charming from the off-beat funk of "7 8 E 1", we're soon hammered by the steady stamps of "Botoque", massaged by the come-to-bed soul of "Formula 1" and whipped into a shamanistic frenzy by the percussion-fuelled "E Um Barato". Complete with a cheeky little 7" brother - that features the acid slapping Latin club smasher "Margarida" and the ghetto-busting funk of "Blaus" - these are the type of packages RSD was invented for. Party time.

Review: Train wrecking, hard bopping, barely breathing riff wizards Ego Trippin continue their rolling onslaught with four more addictive hook-works. "Drum Beatz" rattles and shakes some classic samples in a brand new way, "Lost Your Mind" brings back memories of Bingo circa 2004 while "Change The Beat" is a lolloping weird-out that groans so rudely it could make T>I blush. Fancy a VIP chaser? Take a glug of the subtly refreshed "Tracker". Trippin on sunshine..
