Stop (Don't Let The Beat) - (5:42) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.88
Review: In the words of the man himself, Midland's new ReGraded label - an offshoot of his established Graded label - was set-up to focus on "sample-based, disco-tinged house". "Double Feature" hits the spot from the off, combining his bouncy, 129 BPM drums with hand picked string, orchestral and horn loops from an unspecified old disco record. Style wise, it sounds like a looser, chunkier version of the hypnotic, locked-in heaviness perfected by Soundstream and Tiger & Woods. "Stop (Don't Let The Beat)" inhabits similar territory, with whispered vocal samples and a nagging, slowly rising bassline riding tough, techno-tempo disco beats. It's a little more obviously energetic than its' accompanying A-side, and arguably the more instantly accessible of the pair.

Tail Ender - (4:37) 132 BPM
from $1.88
Review: Harry Agius continues to build his profile via releases that willfully blur the boundaries between deep house, tech-house and contemporary bass music. For the most part, Placement is fairly traditional in its outlook, offering musical blends that err on the side of caution. That's not to say there's not great material; far from it, in fact. "Placement" and "What We Know" boast both drive and swing, and come loaded with the kind of crackly acid lines and electronic riffs that recall Brown Album-era Orbital. The impressive "Tape Burn" goes deeper, offering hissing snares, barely audible pianos and stoned atmospheres, while "Tail Ender" delivers a quietly melodic take on ambidextrous bass music.

Review: Harry 'Midland' Aguis has been responsible for some Aus gems, not least his 2010 debut with Ramadanman and this two track Trace maintains his Midas touch for the label. The title track contains trace elements (geddit?) of Midland's previous work as thickly delivered synth tones combine deftly with booming 4/4 kicks and the sort of nonsensical vocal hook that worms its way all too easily into your cerebral cortex. Still though our favourite however is "For (Yacht) Club Use Only", which is clearly inspired by the Delroy Edwards production of the very similar name.

Review: Harry Agius aka Midland is back: does he ever find time to sleep? Following up the Akase side project he's involved in with Robbie Redway and some killer releases on Aus Music, Feel My Bicep and of course his own Graded imprint which this appears on; making it the label's third release already. "Blush" is a slow burning and emotive piece with an epic vintage synth arpeggio and soulful strings backed by the most restrained beat. "Outpost" gets a bit more fierce with a tougher beat and a free running arpeggio that reeks havoc much like Carl Craig's classic remix of "Falling Up". Finally "Holdup" hammers the message home gloriously with its off kilter yet hypnotic beat and sombre yet emotive atmosphere.

Review: JD Twitch's Autonomous Africa series is something of a rarity. Each annual EP, which features modern electronic music influenced by African rhythms, sounds and styles, is used to raise money for a different African charity. Proceeds from this third in the series are destined for Tanzania's Mtandika Mission, a charity run by Midland's parents. It seems fitting, then, that he kicks things off with "Safi", a heavyweight slice of future voodoo that expertly blends analogue electronics and bombastic African rhythms. General Ludd go deep, psychedelic and off-kilter with their brilliant "Burning Mack", while Auntie Flo delivers a stripped-back vocal cut with echoes of his recent material on Permanent Vacation. Finally, Twitch steps up to deliver "Maya", which sounds like LFO's "LFO" re-made by African musicians.

Review: The excellent Autonomous Africa series returns for a second release sporting cuts from label founder JD Twitch and the like minded Auntie Flo and Midland. Launched last year, the series intends to highlight the problems that outside interference from other countries has on African countries and their people with all the proceeds from each EP donated to a different charity in Africa. The inaugural EP raised funds for Medecins Sans Frontieres operations in Africa, while this year's EP will raise funds for the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania. Midland offers some of his best work to date with the thumping, scratchy 4/4 of original production "Checkbob" which is matched by JD Twitch's "Olaiya" which adds a devilish sub bassline to the jittery JBs style funk of the uncredited source. Elsewhere, Auntie Flo is in more contemplative mood with "Water Of Life" whilst Twitch's second edit "Juju" is a percussive delight.
