Wolf Music has enjoyed another solid year, and here rounds of 2013 with another strong package. Greymatter kicks things off with "Give Up (Never Gonna)", a perfectly pitched chunk of sparse deepness with hints of smoky late night soul (thanks largely to some warm chords and a cut-up vocal from Sophie Brown). KRL's "The Game" works loops and filters hard, delivering an off-kilter take on sample-heavy house that sounds a little like Andres, while Homeboy's "Spacelift" is pleasingly melodic and intoxicating, with the added bonus of a suitably heavy analogue bassline. Ishmael's "Lumo" sparkles with glistening synths and touchy-feely grooves, while James Welsh employs some clattering snares and sparse melodies on the powder house-included "Sleepless in the Saddle".
