from $1.49
Review: Daniel Leseman and Hans 'Junktion' Peeman first joined forces under the Fouk moniker late last year, delivering an impressive debut EP, First Things First, that skillfully combined the former's jazz-tinged rhythms with the latter's smooth deep house nous. There are plenty more reasons to be cheerful on this debut for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings imprint, not least the driving bass, jaunty jazz samples and warm chords of "Kill Frenzy". There's even more soul present on the loose house beats, glassy-eyed vocal samples and rich textures of "Leftys Bar", while "Ken Sent Me Release" is as woozy, wavy and dreamy as you'd expect. Soothing stuff, all told.

Review: Bless up Marcus Intalex! Whilst he's engaged on delivering techno tools of the highest order as Trevino, the Manchester man is not letting his Soul:R empire slack one bit. Here the prospering Fourfit series returns and it sees a full release from the excellent LSB, who delivered a soulful highlight of the last edition. Much the same can be said of the four tracks here, with LSB really showcasing the breadth of his production palette. Lead cut "Snap Funk" rolls with an alluring darkness, whilst "Mist Of You" possesses some quite beautiful piano tones. Deep junglist vibes run through the pensive roller "Walking Blues" whilst "Omega" stands tall with brushed steppah vibes and industrial strength basslines.

from $1.49
Review: Don't be fooled by the plethora of comedic, pun-tastic artist names scattered throughout the track list for this sixteenth volume of Vehicle's Boogie Box Edits series. Look harder, and you'll note the distinctive scalpel alias of label boss Valique (simply "V") throughout. His edits - informed by his past in funk breaks as well as disco, boogie and shameless party-starting fun - rarely disappoint, and there's much to enjoy here. Highlights include a toughened-up, straightened out version of the Whispers' "It's A Love Thing" (complete with house pianos), a filter-heavy disco-house tweak of the Johnson Brothers' "Stomp", and a deliciously breezy rework of an old Billy Ocean fave that's worth the admission price on its' own.

Review: DJ Zinc's Bingo Bass chalks up its third Structures releases and it comes from the main man himself; Benjamin Pettit's long awaited return is taking shape. Prior to these Structures releases, Zinc's last flurry of music came out in 2010, and the UK producer's sonic palate is seemingly evolving with this current stream of funky, UK bass and big room house sounds, just check out opening track "Right Here". Bouncy, knees up drum and bass is the order for the DnB mix of "Back Up" while dark UK funky rears its head in "Back N Forth". Stepping drum and bass makes its way into the EP with "Boppa" alongside the electro of "273" and breakbeats of "Fraction".

Played by: DAVE GERRARD, FINGERMAN
Review: Dave Gerrard has been a member of the Chop Shop family for some time, making his first contribution to one of their split EPs way back in 2012. Here, he returns with his third EP for DJ Butcher's imprint, following appearances on Sound Exhibitions and Hot Digits. He begins in sensual fashion, dropping a straightened-out, string -laden head-nodder ("Get On Up") for the slo-mo disco crew. "Say Yes Sir" sees him turn a classic chunk of rabble-rousing funk into a hip-wigglin' house shuffler, while "Shake At The Disco" sees him return to a slower tempo with a killer chunk of horn-heavy disco-funk. He rounds things off with "What You Gonna Dow", a James Brown style funk number given a swinging 4/4 makeover.

Review: Calibre on Exit... Need we say more? Four tracks deep, each one as subtle and classy as you'd expect. "Strumpet" balances swooning somnambulant strings, distant harmonies and a bumping bass that guffs with the perfect amount of gruff. "Stranger" is a sharper, steppier blend with metallic twists to the undulating subs, "The Sweet" is all about the rhythm thanks to insistent percussive jungle shakers and a drum dynamic that switches from lean to mean at the drop of a snare. Finally we hit "Concrete". The hardest track of the pack; here we find Calibre in a more unrelenting mood as an array of bass tones ebb and flow over a thicker, more robust rhythm. Calibre is indeed a sonic strumpet of highest order.

Review: Jacksy-juddering jams from a man who knows his way around both a studio. The title track bumps and grinds in the lewd, sweaty way you would imagine. It's joined by five more equally bouncy, summer-primed workouts. Highlights include the "Basement Track"-esque Lafayette Afro Rock Band sampling "Steppy Stones", the twisted ragga vocals and sharp steppy triplets on "Tour" and lean, minimal make-up and the tripped out bass tones of "Bionic". Stabby.

from $1.49
Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

from $1.49
Review: A Brazilian/British tag team tear-up of peaktime proportions, the pairing of Critycal Dub and Heist is a straight up classic jump up jungle homage. With Yush's sing-along toasting, it boasts and flexes every hallmark a cut needs to be filed under 'timeless D&B banger'. Dig deeper for the chewier "90% Rusk". All gristle and no thistle, the chubby subs ooze toxicity while rampant shakers and percussion do all the big man talk. Classic Heist.

Review: Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Voyage Recordings are a new label with a thing for the deeper side of life. That's all good with us, especially when it's as slickly produced as the four tracks found here. With all their key artists making appearance, we get gently washed out to sea on tranquil waves of slo-mo dance starting with CTEPEO 57's jazzy, stoned-house, the velvety smoocher "Rosebud", the lean and serene bliss-house of "Dreams on Kepler" and moody electro-house closer "Gravy". Slick!

Review: Super Value Edits frontman Riccio touches down on the similarly discofied Editorial outlet with four freaky-deaky disco joints in an ultra-sleek, contemporary flavour. "I've Loved It" is a grizzly boogie attack complete with a funky guitar riff and wailing vocals, "Put Some Love In Your Life" is slower, more soulful and utterly sexy, while "Flute" is a wonderful DJ tool that'd go down a storm in any Moodymann set. "Little Drummer" provides something more tropical and this release is seriously recommended for the disco heads!

Review: Given that this two-tracker is one of Razor-N-Tape's strongest releases to date, it's good to see it coming out digitally at long last, some 6 months on from its initial vinyl release. Lovebirds man Sebastian Doring takes time out from crafting luscious deep house to deliver a pair of similarly warm and sensual re-edits. "Free (Lovebirds Beautiful Rework)" kicks things off, delivering a wonderfully tactile and breezy blend of Balearic sunshine, reggae-disco rhythms and just the right amount of deep house swagger. "Downandchooback (Lovebirds Edit)" is a more traditional affair, with Doring cutting up a familiar disco favourite, extending the groove in all the right places whilst giving the original vocal pride of place in the nix.

Review: Initially appearing mainly on compilation EPs, The Allergies have recently graduated to starring on their own eponymous releases. Here they team up with the respected Jalepeno for sizzling four tracker, Kicking Up The Dust. It's an extremely varied affair, providing both different styles for different tastes or, simply just different cuts for different parties - "God Walked Down" is breaky, gospel-tinged soul, "Be With You" is low-slung and loose disco-house, meanwhile "Flip The Scripture" is rockified West Coast groovy hip-hop and "Hold It" goes straight back to a world of 70s cop car chases. Cool!

Review: After almost a year's break from releasing, the mysterious P.A returns with a monolithic six-tracker on Hazard's Radius: and no track is a fluffer. Ranging from the epic jump-up thunder of "Fuck Da Bullshit" to the silky subs and gossamer vocal rolls of "Lead The Way", P.A's breadth and ability is showcased to full spectrum effect. Deeper again our innards are rearranged by the paranoid grit of "Strength" while "Ya Don't Fool Me" (that comes complete with some cheeky Back To The Future samples if we're not mistaken) makes the perfect DJ tool as a leaps from lean and clean to utter filth with 1.21 gigawatts of power. One in a googolplex.

Review: This is Jungle Strikes' first release and the artist has done everything possible to make it count. Sampling classic track "Express Yourself" for first siren-scattered party starter "Everybody On the Floor", this is a taste of feel-good, grin-inducing drum and bass that you don't hear all that often. Flipping over for "Payback Sound" the party continues, keeping the tempo and energy up with more classic references and rapid rolling drums underneath hot brass.

from $1.49
Review: We've been waiting for this a long, long time... "N To The Gs" is The Generals' most generous release since the "Five Star" EP two years ago. Five tracks deep, each one reminding us how hard Footsie and D Double E work. "Levels" will be recognisable to all house heads as they murk the Dickens out of a My Nu Leng vibe. "Bang Boi" updates the angular, aggy eski beat riddim with additional voices from Brakeman & Chronic while "Murking Yearly" nods its head to a classic west coast hip-hop mood. The most critical moment for many, though, will be an update of the 2003 classic "Frontline" wherein original member Monkstar returns for the first time in about a decade. Heritage hype.

Review: Running Back boss Gerd Jansen has already shown a love of DJ-focused rhythm tracks via beat-focused releases from Redshape and Todd Osborne. Here he goes one further, pulling together a six-track collection of drum workouts from an impressive roll call of producers. Amongst the drum machine-heavy treats you'll find a brilliantly loose, metallic workout from Disco Nihlist (track four), a smacked-out chunk of tropical oddness from the ever-impressive I:Cube (track 2), a surprisingly jackin', cymbal-heavy roller from Ame (track 5), and a dense chunk of afterparty voodoo from Radio Slave (track 6). Manuel Tur's dirty, low-down opener is pretty darn tasty, too.

Review: For Andrew Ferguson's first release away from Tempa his Nomine alias surfaces on AMAR, and to add that extra statistic, it's the first release from another artist to appear on AMIT's label. Opening track "Voodoo Native" is all about tribal drums that are made to fit a linear techno mould, while 9er's rhymes in the bass, clap and breakdown heavy "99 Aachen" will appeal to all you Phi-Life Cypher fans out there. Drums are stripped, atmospheres are tense and pianos are blurry in the title-track, while "Closed Door" is UK bass music made for a sewer rave.

His entrance is a laid back one with the lazy Sunday vibes of "You Left Me", while "Six Machine" is amplified funk with trumpeting horns, walking basslines and sassy vocals. "Not Easy" ventures down a soul route leaving the flutey "Harlem River Drive" to seal the deal of a great four-track release.

Review: Having previously plied their trade on their own eponymous imprint, the We Mean Disco crew join Solid Fool, for another foray into party-starting re-edit territory. As with previous excursions, the So Wot?! EP blurs the boundaries between disco, boogie and house, offering re-edits laden with additional percussion and the latest production trickery. There's plenty to enjoy, from the deep house meets disco warmth of "Dancing Machine" and tooled up, filter-heavy tweak of "Lost In Music", to the baggy, party-hearty warmth of opener "Wot", arguably the EP's stand-out moment.

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco imprint continues to be one of the more reliable sources of disco and boogie re-edits. Rather predictably, this latest installment in the series is bristling with high-grade dancefloor material. There's some riotous, party-minded disco-funk from newcomer Scott M, who delivers a killer touch-up of Vernon Burnch's "Get Up", and a thrillingly low-slung chunk of rolling disco-house from VinylAddicted and SMQ. While Pontcharain also provides a tightened-up, filter-heavy tweak of France Joli's Prelude classic "Gonna Get Over You" - heavy on the delay, and with the urgent hustle of house - it's the contribution from Canadian stalwart Eddie C that stands out. A smooth, midtempo cut-up of a lesser-known rollerboogie jam, it rises and falls in all the right places.

Review: It doesn't always follow that a producer's surroundings influence their music, but you can certainly hear more than a little of the laidback, sun-soaked haziness of Baja, California, in the work of producer Fabricio "4004" Tepetitlan. It was there on his 2014 debut for Quintessentials (Looking At You, alongside pal Sebastian Vorhaus), and comes to the fore again on this solo outing for France's Faces imprint. There's a genuine jazzy looseness and Rhodes-driven warmth to opener "Reciprocal", while "Round Streets" mixes a subdued soulfulness with bouncy percussion, chunky bass and tasty deep house melodies (check, too, S3A's breezy piano house-meets-rave remix of the same track).

Review: Pinpointing the exact style of beat-maker Uffe Christensen has always been a little tricky, as anyone who has listened to his recent debut album Radio Days will happily confirm. This first outing for Delusions of Grandeur continues the trend, delivering a range of dusty, quietly soulful workouts that variously doff a cap to Moodymann style deepness, hissing jazz-house and broken beat. There's much to admire, from the jazzy-but-smooth lushness of "Like You Mean It", to the rolling Afro-house rhythms and lilting melodies of "Solid Satin (We Can Do Something)". Arguably best of all, though, is "Good For You", a sumptuous chunk of organic deep house full of live instrumentation, hazy atmospherics and sensual intent.

Review: Following a recent acclaimed re-edits outing under his alternative Loshimi alias, Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic once again dons the Tonbe guise for a trip into cheery disco-house/nu-disco/deep house fusion. As usual, he has his eyes fixed firmly on the dancefloor, delivering a quintet of tracks that lace chunky house grooves with all manner of authentic disco elements (think clipped guitars, rubbery bass, slippery synths and breezy vocals). There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the Clavinet-laden disco-funk thrills of "Give Me Funk", to the dreamy vocal sweetness of "This Is The Place", via the sharp string stabs and parping horns of "Disco Frisco".

Review: Following on from their statement b2b mix CD, Pinch and Mumdance have been back in the studio together to cook up this rough and ready single for the formers Tectonic imprint. Riko Dan brings a savage Jamaican swagger to the title track with his fired-up MC turn, while the beat keeps the pressure high from start to finish. "Lucid Dreaming" provides the moody alternative to that party-starting manifesto with some of that Pinch-esque iciness, a deadly restrained menace lingering over the track without ever needing to resort to big drops or crescendos. There's also an instrumental of "Big Slug" for those who need it, although trying to step to Dan's own vocal is not advisable.

Review: The second single to land ahead of Spectrasoul's highly-anticipated sophomore set The Mistress, "Shelter" emanates the duo's most sensitive, touching sides. Leaning heavily on a woozy half beat, full focus on placed on Lily's yearning, heart-torn vocals. D&B doesn't get any more emotional than this. Remix-wise Two Inch Punch lays down a darker, barbed beats twist with a treacle-thick slo-mo stomp while Spectrasoul themselves jump on the VIP with a 170 refix that's tailored for prime time floor flattening. The full package.

"Allright (We'll Be)" is a disco-fuelled house gem with one of those vocal samples that'll log itself in your brain, while "Pursuit" is stranger, more wonky and a right burner when it comes to its percussion. "Heads Down", as the name suggests, is nuttin' but a club bomb and one hell of a DJ tool!

Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

Review: Berlin/Milan based Italian twosome Riccardo Paffetti and Gabriele Micheli have previously impressed with their chunky blends of bass-heavy deep house, classic Italian house and basement-friendly Berlin techno. Here they once again the Black Loops alias for their first single on Toy Tonics since 2013. They begin with the classic bump of "No Questions" - all warm chords, heavyweight sub, US house shuffle and Todd Edwards style vocal cut-ups. One-time Dirtybird regular Ardalan provides the obligatory remix, roughening up the edges via murkier basslines, wild electronics and rolling, post-fidget grooves. Finally, the duo offers up something altogether deeper and more melodious in the shape of "Suki", a picturesque roller blessed with a particularly spellbinding breakdown.

Review: Nothing cheap about the complier of the latest installment of Katakana Edits series. Cheapedits has lined up a sizzling selection of party-orientated scalpel jobs, and gives The Supremes a thorough early 90s hip-house makeover on "Stopin". Inxs get a sleazy big beat facelift on "Tonight", and it's all about the vintage 60s shuffle on "Blacktel". "Buyer" provides some poppy ska and "Qui Qui" wraps things up with closing-time-at-a-tequila-bar vibe.

Review: Dubbed 'Toronto's jungle ambassador', Marcus Visionary is a busy man (he's either been on tour or in the studio for at least a year now). Here he utilises his own Inner City Dance label to have a number of goes at reworking "Badness" by dancehall legend Cutty Ranks and UK reggae hero Curtis Lynch. The tune sees Ranks doubt the posturing of youth gang culture and is twisted into a furious steel drums and bass skank in the Tear Out mix, a low 'n slow half-step "Bashy" joint and MV's previously released original remix of the track.

Review: Following DSCI4's release of the Spy Technologies compilation (and subsequent 7" release) Berlin-based drum and bass duo Survey debut on DJ Trace's long running label. Hardy Schulz & Stephan Albrecht deliver a solid four-track EP of their own productions and "Move In Time" is stripped-back and skeletally tough, while "Warp Resistant" sees pounding drums break and cut through swells of darkly bass. "As You Want" lifts in velocity and by extension power, and this track is all about the percussion, leaving a gnarly "Both Sides" to complete an EP that takes no prisoners.

Review: Strahil Velchev has been a lot of places in his prolific career thus far, but he's never been to Running Back before. With the title track the Hungarian production power house steps up to the plate with a surefire peak time rocker, piling on thick electro synth lines and plenty of techno tension built for the large-scale experience. "Diversion" is no less catchy even if its temperament is far sunnier, working that playful edge that has always accompanied Kink tracks, but then "Pocket Piano (Breakbeat Mix)" throws a curveball in the shape of an old-skool breakbeat groove colliding with warm and fluffy arpeggios before opening up into a joyous piano rave experience.

Review: You don't need to go to the big smoke to hear the latest cutting edge sounds. Don't believe us? Well look no further than the far-flung reaches of Devon for proof. Hailing from Totnes, Libra makes the kind of head-spinning, foot-stepping hybrid house that reconfigures garage into a whole new 21st century form of dance. "Need Your Love" recalls the trippier end of deep 90s vocal house, with cosmic digital sprays and loopy organ riffs. Remix-wise Archive UK takes us into boomy, doomy DnB-meets-dubstep territory, whilst Tickles gives us some moody 2-step with an extra helping of wobble for good measure.

Review: After plates for Osiris, Lion Charge and Ruff Cut, Bristol pairing Jamie Schildhauer and Paul White bring their Kaiju project to the Deep Medi label. Lead track "Justice" has been a much sought after dubplate for some time, and a fine example of Kaiju's innate understanding of dub science implementing only a few elements - haunting flutes, floating synths and crisp percussion - with deadly precision. Justice is served! Complementing this, Kaiju conjure some truly monstrous atmospheres with "Creeper" - if Demdike Stare turned their hands to steppahs it might sound like this. Deep Medi is nearing its 100 release and every one of them have been superb.

Review: Having made his name making decent deep house, Fantastic Man appears to be following in the footsteps of fellow Melbourne export Tornado Wallace and pursuing a far more Balearic, kaleidoscopic sound. Certainly, Dream Machine is arguably his strongest EP to date, delivering a trio of cuts that expertly fuse Italo, Scandolearic and new age influences. There's naturally much to admire, from the lilting melodies, tactile proto-house rhythms, Italo attitude and bubbling synth bass of "Fountain Gate", to the marimba-clad breeziness and chiming tunefulness of "St Elmo's (Theme)". The title track, a study in early deep house melodiousness, is also pretty impressive.

Review: Having spent much of the last few years delivering killer re-edits on his own Giant Cuts label, experienced scalpel specialist Deadly Sins transfers to KAT with arguably his strongest EP to date. Opener "El Afro" is an impressively sweaty affair, with addictive clavinet lines, twittering flutes, undulating strings and sleazy saxophones riding a hustling groove. "Shave A Pair" delivers a trippy, life-affirming take on Crown Heights Affair, while Curtis Mayfield gets a makeover on the wonderfully evocative "Get Off My Sister". As for "Maryas Red Hot Groove", it turns a Mary Wilson disco/soul/funk jam into a rolling, rising dancefloor delight. Great edits are a rarity, but these are genuinely superb.

For more sample mastery flip for the dubby disco lollops of "Make Your Body Move" and the Vadim-esque cosmic hip-hop meanderings of "Big Pimpin'". Super spacious. Another classic 12" from the Medina discography!

Review: Lithuanian producer Marijus Adamitis, arguably best known under the Mario Basanov alias, has picked up many plaudits for his work under the Ten Walls alias. Following superb - and much hyped - outings on Innervisions and Life & Death, he helped launch the Lithuania-based Boso label last year. Here he returns to the imprint with another fine pair of cuts for the imprint. "Sparta" kicks things off, building slowly before blossoming into a bold-but-beautiful deep house anthem - all low-end brass band melodies, spine-tingling organ chords and cymbal-heavy percussion. "Blue Orphan" wanders more towards tech-house territory via Germanic electronics and woozy chords, but still retains a comforting sense of melodiousness and an intoxicating vibe.

Review: France's DJ W!ld has been concentrating on his DJ career over the last few years but the Parisian house staple is no stranger to the mixing room and, as per usual, he comes through utterly correct on Phil Weeks' Robsoul label (going strong since 2000). The All About You EP is classic W!ld ding what he does best. "Beakin'" takes hard-hitting drums and places them over minimal chords and melodies, "With You" is driving and like a steel pulse running through the dancefloor with its stabs of percussion, while "Only What I Am" is funkier and more kreaky thanks to its hypnotic samples and luscious chords. "All About You" is deeper, more lo-fi and yet filled with Wild's inimitable flair and charisma. It blows away most tech-house imitators, top stuff!

If he carries on releasing stuff like this, you can bet your lunch money 2015 will be his year.

Review: Disco casual Rafael Fernandez lands on the disco-friendly Editorial imprint - known for their trigger-happy edits - so it's all fun and games; good vibes all around. As such, "Answer From Above" is a gorgeous, stop-start disco-sampling stomper that reminds us a little bit of Sound Stream if it wasn't for the heavy vocal action, and guess what!? There's also a string-heavy version for all your dancefloor antics. "Corner Street Blues" is more funky, moodier and features Gabriel Covarrubias on the mic, while "Bones" digs and chomps its way across snappy vocal chants and a steady, thumping kick for good measure.
