Review: Still an artist in relative development, Mosca pops up on 3024 with this choice selection of focused and funky house cuts. "Dom Perignon" draws you in from the off with its choppy groove and subtle break vibe, leaving the melodics to play a more subtle part by inferring the deepness of the track rather than spelling it out. "Orange Jack" keeps the same linear, floor-ready presence but lightens the mood with a string stab and a maddening vocal loop, leaving it to "Jager" to cause the serious damage with a technoid workout that could end up in some quite unexpected record bags.

Review: The latest release from the Glaswegian imprint adds a further sheen of excellence in a year where Numbers has really knuckled down and concentrated on a schedule of multi faceted releases. Such has been the demand for Mosca's debut on the Numbers imprint, the London based producer cheekily took to touting advance DJ copies of Do Me Wrong via Facebook. Both tracks here are fully poised for the floor, priming a throwback Bassline / UK G swing dipped in a nowness from Mosca that's been evident on drops for Night Slugs and Fat City. Unusually, it's the B Side that's garnered the most attention, which is odd as "Done Me Wrong" is excellent, reigning in vintage female hollerations over clipping rhythms, swamping basslines and parping synths that pay homage to the classic "RIP Groove". Flipside, the more celebrated "Bax" is a dual assault on your senses, murky sub bass jabbing at your ribs, whilst the sweet cooing vocals whisper sweet nothings in your ears. All this is underpinned by a skipping mid 90s flex heavy on the neon stabs that has warehouse jam written all over it.

Review: The ever-rising Mosca makes a logical addition to the Hypercolour canon with his thoroughly contemporary hybrid house sound. The title track on this strong four-tracker looks set to become an omnipresent jam with its nagging synth hook honed for late night devastation, while the beat stays militantly funky thoughout. "Murderous" too taps into this coolly delivered well of nocturnal delight, with just a whisper of garage woven into the sexy swagger of the track. Things get a little snappier on the clipped groove of "Accidentally", bolstered by an arresting turn from the one and only Robert Owens on vocal.

Review: UK Funky mover and shaker Mosca gives his own Tilt Shift over to a couple of very worthy remixers for this EP on Fat City. Bristolian boy wonder Julio Bashmore steps up first with a heavy grooving slow-mo cut that capitalises on fuzzy synth swirls for a luscious and slightly psychedelic end result. It's a killer slice of deep house with ample character that lifts it out of the glut of similar-minded music at the moment. Swing Ting is more of an unknown quantity, and out of their two versions the dub wins out for sparse rawness with garagey bass squelches.
