Review: Huxley seems to be everywhere right now. Hot on the heels of Tsuba's recent retrospective of his career to date comes this typically ballsy two-tracker for the omnipresent Hypercolour. Both "Bellywedge" and "Little Things" continue his ongoing flirtation with the bassier end of house, delivering rumbling garage basslines, cut-up vocal hits and far-sighted atmospherics. Both are, predictably, suitably large, with the marimba melodies, garage vocals and bowel-bothering sub of "Bellywedge" just edging out the Lone-ish rave revival flex of the stab-tastic "Little Things". Expect to hear both tracks a lot over coming months.

Review: Huxley certainly seems to be enjoying a purple patch right now, and Lost Love, his first outing for Rinse, is another tried-and-tested banger. The title track is more straightforward than some of his releases, delivering a fluid mix of bumpin' beats, wobbly sub, deep stabs and pitched-down vocal samples. The deeper US garage flex of "Who Am I" offers more effortless groovery, though it's out-gunned by the next-level two-step-goes-deep house flex of darting floorfiller "Walk 2 U". With its jazzy keys and sparkling stabs, it's easily the pick of the bunch.

Review: Having won some fans with his Hypercolour release, Huxley now leaps to 20:20 Vision to dish out more smooth, feel-good house music. On "Box Clever" a rubbery bass line and steady drum machine beats meet with cheery piano samples for a track that could become synonymous with outdoor grooving in the sunshine. "Atonement" is more inwardly focused, not least in the filtered synth that lends a sexy late-night feel to the track. "Out Of My Mind" switches things up nicely with a cheeky broken beat bouncing off smatterings of Detroit chords for a surprising and addictive groove.

Review: Without wanting to besmirch the good name of Tring, the town is hardly known as a thriving hub of high quality house music. This EP, then, is something a rarity: it's by a chap from Tring, it's full of nicely produced deep house, and it's rather good. There are three original tracks on show; the boompty-meets-classic NYC house vibes of "Shower Scene", the springy bassline proggyness of "Terrorize" and the old skool garage bounce of "Like One". There are also a couple of solid remixes, including a rather fine Mic Newman version of the title track that boasts some seriously alien synth melodies.

Review: This third volume in the celebratory Tsuba Loves series - a way of championing some of their favourite artists - gives virtual hugs and kisses to Huxley, a producer whose stock seems to rise by the month. For those who've not been following his career, this is a great place to start. While largely made up of material previously released on Tsuba (naturally), it does chart his rise from young upstart to in-demand club favourite. Along the way, there's a chance to revisit some of his best material, including the garage-influenced deep house banger "Take No More" (check, too, the thrilling MK remix), the brilliant deep-but-wonky jazz-house cut "Get Your Own" and a string of early collaborations with similarly feted producer Ethyl.
