Review: With all their brilliant musical shapeshifting, it can sometimes be hard to keep up with Leeds lads PBR Streetgang. Having flirted with both disco and deep house of late - usually both at once - At Dez sees them looking fairly and squarely towards the dancefloor at Basics, with an EP of forthright house treats. "At Dez" itself is typical Yorkshire house - bassy, stripped back, hypnotic and impressively robust - while "2Square" makes mischief with squeaky vocal cut-ups, gargantuan bass and a dash of old skool jack. "Make Your Mind Up" impressively fuses soulful shuffle and touchy-feely synth bass, while "Sexy Time" bounces along on a wave of rubbery bass and voodoo samples.

Review: PBR Streetgang's output has been impressive of late, but few of their releases have been quite as arresting as "C.R.A.I.G". First released on vinyl in 2011, it finally gets a digital release following Eclectic Avenue's belated move to the world of downloads. If you've not come across it before, it's worth a listen. Murky, hypnotic and druggy, it pits dark acid squiggles and delay-laden drone synths against chugging disco drums, bold cowbells and choice blues samples. It's neither deep house nor disco, instead being something altogether more peculiar. It's very good, all told, as are Toby Tobias' two remixes. Both offer a stark contrast to the dark original, offering fluid synths, touchy-feely grooves and near Balearic atmospherics.

Review: Yam Who?'s ISM label come through with a four track slice of disco centric Futurism, featuring the man Yam himself alongside PBR Streetgang and Ron Basejam. It's the latter who takes the lead with a remix of Alena's "Changes" that sees her sultry vocal teased by a most excellent of analogue synth leads that splurges brilliantly across the crisp mid tempo chug. Yam Who? teams up with vocalist Natasha Watts for the similarly bottom heavy bump of "I'm In Love" which has a certain warehouse appeal to it. Up next, PBR pay respect to the godfather of soul James Brown with the gritty flex of "J2thaB" with the sadly departed Mr Brown strangely sounding at times like he wants to go to Tesco. We always took him for a Waitrose man, but regardless this is probably the track you'll reach for most! Finally Brothers Young do their thing to a Trammps classic, with little more than the bassline retained. Big tip!
