Review: After launching themselves with an excellent EP of slow grooves on Perspective back in 2010, Bristol cellar dwellers Behling & Simpson have proved to be one of the bass-obsessed city's more interesting house exports. After impressing on Futureboogie, Apple Pips and 2020 Midnight Visions, here they pop up on Outernational with their most left-of-centre EP yet. "The Vaults" sets the tone, building carefully towards a frenetic climax thanks to loose, jazz-flecked, Afro-tinged rhythms, a pulsing bassline and all manner of spiritual synth licks. "Slates" sees them move further towards intense, Afro-house territory - whilst retaining their trademark woozy synths, of course - while "Vitamin A" bobs and weaves impressively, all nagging acid tweaks and swinging, low-slung beats.

Review: The afro-tinged rhythms of Futureboogie regulars Behling & Simpson's recent Outernational release get the remix treatment on this fine two-tracker. First up, Belfast's Ejeca continues his meteoric rise through the upper echelons of contemporary house with a radical reconstruction of "The Vaults", transforming its dubby, mid-tempo grooves into a peak time thumper that inspires visions of a crowded, sweaty basement. Last Mood's version of "Slate" is a similarly drastic transformation, taking only the merest hint of vocals and transplanting them from the wonky acid of the original into a peak-time Chicago-inspired piece of throbbing, jacking.house.

Review: With an ever-strengthening repertoire of low-slung, boogie inflected deep house emanating from their Bristol studio, Behling & Simpson make the surprising migration from regular haunt Futureboogie to Appleblim's Apple Pips imprint, with their production style adapting slightly for the occasion. "Where's The Oh's" is an exercise in tension and little release as a rough and scratchy 4/4 groove burrows incessantly, waiting patiently for scatty flecks of chord and bleep to cut through the taut funk intermittently. "Tape Hiss" gives a little more easily, with a rounded bass sitting comfortably under a driving house shuffle while more psychedelic textures provide the light relief.
