Review: It's fair to say Running Back have not put a foot wrong this year with headline releases from Tiger & Woods and Todd Terje complemented by some lesser celebrated but by no means less impressive twelve inches from Marco Passarani, Disco Nihilist and that stunning Son Of Sam reissue. Their latest release sees the focus shift to another under the radar producer in Suzanne Kraft, whose Green Flash EP makes for one of this year's most attractive releases. Kraft adopts a pleasantly midtempo poise on "Morning Come" with swathes of melodies infused with sunset gradually rising to the fore. This joyous feeling flushes through the rest of the EP with both "Turning" and the title track sounding like Tiger & Woods performing from the deep end of the pool. "Femme Cosmic" provides an excellent finish to proceedings, unfolding from a tinnily reverberant slowed down proto house drawl into some midnight cruise through dubbed out mutant 80s disco boogie.

Review: Since donning the Suzanne Kraft moniker last year, LA-based producer Diego Herrera has proved more than adept at turning out the sort of atmospheric, analogue-heavy electronic music that's darn tricky to pigeonhole. Having previously dabbled in revivalist proto-house and starlight disco-influenced deepness, Horoscope sees him impressively shifting between melancholic analogue deepness (the title track), sprawling proto-house funk ("No Worries"), spiraling analogue electronica ("Ritmo"), Dream 2 Science-ish deep house ("Feel") and touchy-feely nu-Balearica ("Crest"). As if to ram the point home, Secret Circuit and Max D also deliver tasty remixes that defy easy categorization, with the former's subdued analogue disco take particularly impressing.

Review: Having previously impressed with his left-of-centre Friends of Friends imprint, Leeor Brown has teamed up with LA pal David Fisher to launch Young Adults, a new label dedicated to the fluid sounds currently coming out of the disco and house scenes. This first label sampler sets their stall out impressively. Starting with the brilliant "Jus Us" by LA's own Suzanne Kraft - a Paul Simpson style proto-house jam with a deliciously old skool vocal - the EP works through a variety of comfy, touchy-feely flavas. There's a dash of loopy deep house goodness from Dead Rose Music Company, some lush, cowbell-driven vocal deepness from Urulu and a touch of retro-futurist acid goodness from LOL Boys and Grown Folk. Recommended.
