Review: Mershak's trade is in the darkest and most eagle-eyed of dubstep, which makes him a bit of a rudeboy around these charts; his output has the same sort of impact on us that Noisia used to have back in the d&b revival days. So, just like Noisia, "Gnosis" and "Heavy Work" drop vicious levels of low frequencies that will no doubt have the effect of a nuclear bomb in any respectable dancehall from here to Dundee. "Kindler" takes the moves to a sparser, more tribalistic sort of setting for the real headz, but "Rituals" breaks the groove up nicely with a bumpy bass recalling somrthing more like a bass steppah - oh, Marshek!

Review: Since making his debut on Rhythm Section International in 2016, Polish producer Earth Trax has proved to be one of the major players in the revivalist dream house movement. He's at it again here, delivering another swathe of tactile, ear-pleasing and mood-enhancing cuts. "L'Aventura" is available in two tasty variations, both of which are underpinned by snappy drum hits and thickset synth bass. The "Main" mix makes great use of fluttering synthesizer flute lines and cascading pianos, while the "Dub" is a little more stripped back and percussive despite the presence of plenty of humid synth sounds. Elsewhere, "Nokturn" is a masterful exercise in eyes-closed sunrise nostalgia, while closer "HG" massages your ears with all the sensuality of a forgotten Morenas production.

Review: After 18 months of silence, Versed rises from its sleep with an energised album-sized air. Leaning over the future precipice even further than before, the whole collection reeks of innovation and rule-free drama. The cosmic digidub of "Slept On", the scaly drones and off-beat parps of "Cabin", the mischievous wobbles and spacious funk of "Don't Talk", the tripped out vocal cuts and pranged out bass zaps of "Buddha" are just some of the many highlights on offer here... Dig deep and digest - this more than makes up for lost time!

Review: If there's any tune that can truly say I'll be back it's Hizzleguy's screech-funk stepper "Terminator". Released in January, it has returned in both VIP and remix form... And the results are even more hair-raising. The former is pure mimetic poly-alloy T-1000 with its stretched out bass textures and unnerving sense of danger while the latter (courtesy of Nu Elementz) will take your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle with its added grizzly bass tones and looser sense of funk. Terminated.

Review: Dr!ve may once have been a member of award-winning hip-hop group 6er Gaucho, but these days he's far more interested in disco and, in particular, electrofunk. "Down & Out" is a cheery number full of authentic boogie synths, crunchy clipped guitars, tasty P-funk flourishes and a fine vocal from the man himself. The accompanying remixes also hit the spot with Aux Tha Masterfader channeling the spirit of Break Machine on his synth bass and Fairlight stab-propelled "Breakdance Mix", before Dctr drops two synth-heavy nu-disco rubs. Bonus cut "The Party" - a vocoder-laden stroll through P-funk flavoured nu-disco pastures - is also pretty nifty.

Review: Six years have passed since Maceo gave the world his debut album Life Index. In that time he's solidified his status as one of techno's most untouchable soul men who's unapologetically ungoverned by tempos or boxes or any type of formula. He's also become a father, which is what this (and last year's "Journey To Solar") are all about. Rich in sentiment, hope and fear, each cut reveals a deeper layer of Maceo: the star-gazing optimism of "Kepler's Journey", the Bristolesque industrial dub soul of "Indigo", the careful countering of vulnerable emotion and roboticism on "Was Away My Tears", the list goes on. This is Maceo at his most heartfelt and arresting.

Review: For the third Failsafe instalment, Developer has tried something a little different. Despite the presence of "Get It On", which integrates Dan Bell and Robert Hood's minimalism with UK techno's loopy aesthetic, the US producer showcases a range of other influences. "Chain of Life" is an uptempo, string-heavy house jam, while on "Natives Calling", the Modularz boss fuses melodic Detroit techno elements with his trademark rolling sound. The biggest surprise however is "Snap Over". Led by thumb-clicking percussion and a hypnotic vocal sample, it will work on the dance floor, but it also hints at a deeper, indeed more melancholic personality behind one of techno's most renowned projects.

Review: Here's something of a surprise: an EP on Running Back jointly produced by veteran German house producer Boris Dlugosch and rising star Cassara. The inter-generational duo has put together a set of tracks that veers closer to Italo-disco and cheery Balearic goodness than the funk-fuelled peak-time house that Dlugosch is often associated with. Our highlight is probably "Nightflight", a pleasingly baggy concoction that wraps alien melodies and vintage synthesizer motifs around a sparse drum machine groove. That said, opener "Traveller", which sounds like a cross between Electra's 1982 classic "Feels Good (Carrots & Beats)" and lightly bouncy house, and sparkling Italo-disco-meets-Daft Punk throb-job "Intervox" are also rather good.

Review: Nottingham based Ron Basejam is the anagrammed alter-ego of Crazy P co-founder James Baron who creates music with feelings on labels such as Futureboogie and Wolf Music and now for Freerange sister label Delusions Of Grandeur. On the fittingly titled The Sound Of A Feeling EP he serves up the charmingly titled "Shit Wizard" a soulful, nu-disco boogie-down jam. "We Walk To War" in its original form is the kind of lo-slung/slo-mo disco that really floats our boat, but the remix up next by Tee Mango really injects it with some Stevie Wonder style soul-funk that'll help get your shine on. The title track is the deepest and most emotive offering here, with its sublime and hypnotic qualities being pushed along by a tight groove.

Review: If this isn't already in your collection you don't know how lucky you are... Given away two years ago for a limited amount of time, this bass-meets-grime collection was a blink-and-miss affair. Until now... Back all it's 21 track glory, it's ablaze with fusion fire from Creep N00m & Ronin's itchy-trigger finger banger "Kill", Pelikann's 4x4 Dizzee-twisted widow maker "Stand Up Tall" and Mr Dubz's planet-bouncing "Spaceman". And that's not even touching the sides. Serious heat that's still sounding future two years later; don't miss this one again.

Review: 20 tracks. Count them...Twenty tracks of solid drum & bass gold as Dispatch continues to celebrate its 15th year in the game with some of the very best from its catalogue: AI's Moroder-style "Rise & Shine" opens with non-stop memory pleasure. Other highlights include Commix's grizzly on his "Aldabra" remix, Survival appears multiple times with timeless art forms such as his "Nightflight" style stepper "Dub Soldier" and his and System's 4 Hero level cosmic funker "Caught On Me". Elsewhere Marcus we have two impeccable Intalex classics - the sci-fi iced-out synth washes of "Stark" and his soulful heads-down piano-laced roller "Virgo" - and Gerra & Stone takes things right back to the dungeon on "Too Deep". That's just the tip of the iceberg - this is proof of Dispatch's pure quality and commitment to the cause.

Review: Sangiuliano is an Italian DJ who has been associated with Adam Beyer through a release on Truesoul. Now he steps up for the Swedish DJ's main imprint with this killer big room record. The title track is a brooding bass-heavy affair that is very much in line with Beyer's own sound. On "Ghettoblaster" he mixes up the approach; break beats hip-hop scratches and tiny vocal snippets all come together over a moody jungle-inspired low end. While "Dutch Kiss" sees him explore a more house-oriented sound thanks to its hypnotic organs at its core is a robust bass that bleeps and spits furiously.

Think Too Much (Unloved David Holmes remix) - (6:30) 126 BPM
from $1.94
Review: This second EP of remixes of tracks from Phil Kieran's impressive Blinded By The Sun album is notable for containing a now rare remix from fellow Northern Irishman David Holmes. The producer-turned-soundtrack composer delivers a predictably hazy, atmospheric interpretation of "Loved Too Much" that skillfully balances cinematic traits with the hypnotic techno found on his earliest releases. While undeniably impressive, Matthew Herbert's distinctively wonky, micro-house style rub of "Realities Forgotten" is arguably even better. Throw in a cheery, piano-heavy deep house take on 'Solar Storm" by Mano Le Tough, and you have an essential collection of tasty, club-ready reworks.

Review: The mighty Defected label have decided to start paying tribute to their most cherished artists, this who've helped the label develop into the worldwide phenomenon that it is today. Armand Van Helden is, of course, at the top of that list and it's no surprise given just how prolific and important this man has been to the evolution of house over the decades. You get all the classics here, legendary tunes like "Flowerz", "My My My", "Bonkers" featuring Dizzee Rascal, and many more. Half of these tunes are actually getting rather difficult to pin down these days, with many of them having remained on the back on 12"s since now.

Review: Recently, Esa Williams has done a good job in stepping out of the shadow of regular Auntie Flo collaborator Brian D'Souza. Here he furthers his solo career via a fine EP on much-loved Dutch imprint Dekmantel. He begins with the deliciously angular and fuzzy "Blast", a joint production with Notch Beats that wraps Pendo Zawose's exotic, drifting vocals around razy sharp electronic motifs and shuffling, 108 BPM afro-house beats. Kenyan vocalist Abakisimba lends a hand on the warm and fluid East African deep house lusciousness of "Rift Valley", before Williams rounds things off via the house tempo Detroit techno positivity of "Rent-a-Disc".

Review: Cheekily, Todd Terje has decided to put out these remixes of forthcoming album track "Jungelknugen" before we've had a chance to hear the original version. While it's hard to know how revolutionary these remixes are - or otherwise - it's fair to say that both Four Tet and Prins Thomas have brought their A-game. Keiran Hebden steps up first, layering up looped, kosmiche style synthesizer refrains, wide-eyed piano motifs, low-slung analogue bass, and the kind of jazzy, off-kilter drum machine beats that simultaneously feel loose and sturdy. While undoubtedly impressive, it lacks the hustle and bustle of Prins Thomas's interpretation, which is drive forwards by heavy, bleep techno style sub bass and the producer's own groovy disco drums.

Review: Todd Terje & The Olsens come correct with their first recorded material after an extended bout of them treating festival audiences to some of the Norwegian's best-loved material, not to mention some killer cover versions. Indeed it's the latter, oft-derided method of recording that forms the basis of this delightfully-presented double pack (we love a good Big Trouble In Little China reference) as Terje and the group rip through renditions of some disco standards from Martin Circus, YMO, Vangelis and more. Given Terje's lengthy range of official and under-the-counter edits, news of this new project makes perfect sense to us. In addition to these cover versions, Olsen have also commissioned some remixes with arch Terje colluder Prins Thomas involved along with Comeme artist Daniel Maloso.

Review: Given his encyclopedic knowledge of music, you'd expect any compilation put together by Bill Brewster to be full of unlikely gems and lesser-known anthems. That's certainly the case with After Dark, the first in a new DJ-focused series from the Late Night Tales camp. From start to finish, Brewster's selections are spot on, from the lowdown, slo-mo disco oddness of Sheffield chanteuse Marti Caine's "Love The Way You Love Me" and wide-eyed, acid-laden kosmiche of Coober Peder University Band's "Moon Plain", to the dirty electrofunk of Zed Bias's "Koolade" (featuring Toddla T, of all people) and mid'80s percussion fest of Martin Kershaw's "Keep On Pokin". If that wasn't enough, Brewster has also unearthed a decent Jamiroquai record. The wonders never cease.

Review: Swiss producer Dario D'Attis' profile is on the rise, if this is certainly anything to go by: a release on Steve Bug's mighty Poker Flat! Following up several impressive outings on the likes of the local Purple Music and Hive Audio: where he provided similarly effective grooves, "Solera" once again sees him serve up some moody and elevating tech house attitude, that rolls along just as you like it. "Somebody" (original mix) utilises chopped and pitched up diva vocals with hypnotic melodies on this slow burning progressive house journey: optimized for serious dancefloor drama. Finally, "Solera" (Reprise mix) does exactly what it says on the tin. It returns for one more bash at the killer track: this one's a beatless tool version that still manages to distill some of the energy and suspense of the original.

Review: Over the last 14 years, UK techno-funk stalwart Colin McBean has released a vast amount of music under his Mr G alias, for a wide variety of labels; according to Discogs, he's dropped an astonishing 70 12" singles in that time. This two-disc collection of his favourite moments, simply titled Retrospective, is arguably much needed. For the newcomers it offers a neat summary of his particular brand of no-nonsense, sample-heavy techno, where cut-up jazz, disco and soul loops ride thunderous techno rhythms and robust, late night grooves. For the diehards, there's a smattering of new cuts, while occasional fans should revel in the opportunity to savour some of his most hard-to-get jams.

Review: Starting out in the early rave scene in Boston, Soul Clap made their name through a series of house edits and became big names through notable releases such as a DJ Kicks mix alongside close NYC allies Wolf + Lamb. "Shine (This Is It)" is the first single from their self-titled second album. It features legendary vocalist Nona Hendryx, an original member of the trio Labelle who's smash single "Lady Marmalade" is a timeless classic. "Shine (This Is It)" features the strength in Hendryx's vocal, which empowers spirits, moving you on the dancefloor. Midnight Magic's Morgan Wiley delivers an outstanding keyboard solo and fellow bandmate Jason Disu teams up with Kali Rodriguez and No Regular Play's Greg Paulus to form the Soul Clap horn section.

Review: NYC-based Bristol exile Milo Johnson AKA DJ Nature has long enjoyed a good relationship with Futureboogie Recordings, having first provided remix services for the West Country label back in 2013. This, though, is still his first EP for Dave Harvey's imprint. His loose, groovy and jazz-flecked style of deep house naturally comes to the fore on warm and melodious opener "Born Lifted", while the slightly more driving, sample-heavy "My Life" recalls his early '90s work as Nature Boy. "What Isn't" is a dusty deep house producer's take on electro-tinged instrumental hip-hop (reflective of his '80s work as part of Massive Attack's Wild Bunch collective) while "Loving You More" cannily joins the dots between lo-fi deep house, Balearic dreaminess and classic jazz-funk.

Review: Last year, Bristol's successful neo funkateers, The Allergies, delivered a strong LP, As We Do Our Thing, on Jalepeno. However rather than rest on their laurels, the pair (aka Moneyshot and Rackabeats) have continued to release new material. "Entitled To That" is their latest non-LP track and it's a blinder! Furious 60s beats stomp ahead with tambourines, claps and raucous female vocals right behind - a super authentic Motown-style jam of Marthe Reeves-proportions. On the digital flipside, "Get Down To You", looks more to the 70s for inspiration, with a tight clavinet and wah-wah guitar-led funk groove that's impossible to resist.

Noisia never mess around. They even make hairy donuts serious.

And that's before we even get to the killer remixes. Addictive. As always.

Unsurprisingly it's a pretty lively affair with three crazy bangers to get tings lit. First up,"Riddim Rider" kicks things off with some slow rolling breaks, boomy bass and heavy raggamuffin MC action from Jago and Deemas J. Next "Get Darker" is a lighter, Kingston-style summery dub jam and lastly "Policeman" is cool electro reggaeton outing.

Review: Bitter Music is Ali Wells's third studio album and manages the rare feat of combining experimentation with a focus on the dance floor. It means that the husky, breathy vocals and found sound ambience of "Exit" and the spooky tones of "Wax Apple" both sit next to the panel-beating techno of "Unelected" - possibly another one of Wells' political references - the eerie, rumbling drums of "Chatter" and the low slung menace of "I Just Can't Win". On other occasions, Wells articulates his ability to straddle both worlds in one arrangement, audible on the deeply disturbing shrieks of Aja Ireland over the gnarly rhythm of "Spit" or the tape dub cut up groove of "Rat Run". Ali Wells has matured as an artist but as Bitter Music shows, in the process he has lost none of his bile-laced anger.

Review: Dystopian was one of the first labels to feature Recondite's music, and after a number of years, he now returns to the imprint. The title track is a stirring affair, with the German producer combining a gritty bass with dramatic, soaring strings. On "Thorn", he also puts a focus on the interplay between the earthy and the ethereal: tough, grainy bass and shaking drums provide the basis for an uplifting, hypnotic riff and brooding woodwind. On "Humid Green Haze", Recondite drops the tempo but the tone remains foreboding thanks to tinkling bells and sharp drums. However, Recondite's sound is best suited to the dance floor and on "Sol", he conjures up a sonorous bass and synths so melancholic they could have been lifted straight from a Kraftwerk demo.
