Armed with a ravishing string/harmony sample that swoons with instant summer breeze, Cole Medina has created this year's essential sunset piece. Armed with the right amount of squelchy low-end weight and groove that won't quit, it's Cole at his very best. For more sample mastery flip for the dubby disco lollops of "Make Your Body Move" and the Vadim-esque cosmic hip-hop meanderings of "Big Pimpin'". Super spacious. Another classic 12" from the Medina discography!
Hanzee is a Budapest-dwelling 'funkbreak, breakbeat, ghettofunk and glitch-hop' DJ (amongst other genres). Here he delivers his second EP, HaleLuisa, which contains three slices of what he does best. The title being a groovy slice of breaky electro funk: all moody synths pads and tough drums, "American Dream" adds more retro guitar licks and raw vocals to the funky mix and "Jive Step" is an intriguing mix of dubsteppy production and swingy rhythms. Scottish master of the live remix, Andy Taylor, also pops up to give the title track a delicious acoustic Balaeric overhaul.

Already home to the likes of Khurt, Staunch and Au5 & Fractal, Australia's leading neuro hop, glitch and dubstep label Adapted have now welcomed Kosmo to the fold. Usually heard as one half of duo DonKong, bass fiend Kosmo has produced a seven track mini album that sees him fuse wobbly dubstep with all manner of their influences. Highlights include the hip-hop meets Ed Banger dub-cruncher "Mojo", the snarling filthy house of "Sirene" and the stadium dance-hop anthem "Money", which features the extra talents of SakeSake and Adam Tensta.
