Nectarines - (6:31) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Sam Shepherd has long been a master of the kind of ultra-deep, rolling, soft focus deep house that raises the spirits and soothes the soul. Even so, there's something incredibly special about "Nuits Sonores", the lead track from this must-have EP. Based around a deep, tactile groove and blessed with rising synth solos, dancing acid lines and his usual fireside Rhodes antics, the track rises magnificently for 12 spellbinding minutes. As it progresses, further elements make their way into the mix, until it reaches the kind of organic deep house climax that makes even the grumpiest souls go weak at the knees. Flip for "Nectarines", the kind of loose-limbed fusion of deep house sassiness, Detroit techno electronics and fluid jazz drumming at which Shepherd has always excelled.

from $1.49
Review: This deluxe expansive EP - originally released on a 12" and 10" package - is the first in what Detroit Swindle promise will be an annual occurrence - a "family remix EP", where members of the Heist Recordings crew rework releases from the previous 12 months. It's a neat idea, and one resulting in some killer material. The Organ Grinder's surging, drum-laden rework of Frits Wentik's "Schrewd" is deliciously heavy, though it's Max Graef's loose, soulful reinterpretation of Detroit Swindle's "The Break Up" that's probably the standout. That said, there's plenty to cheer elsewhere, not least Nachtbraker's cowbell-laden, acid house-meets-nu-disco version of Max Graef and Andy Hart's "Jungle".

from $1.49
Review: Everyone loves a good story behind a record and few come with a more interesting narrative than this debut (and perhaps only) Talamanca System 12". The story goes that Gerd Janson and Phil Lauer were enjoying the Ibizan hospitality of International Feel boss Mark Barrot last summer, to the extent they were both gifted his unused Studio Electronics 'Boomstar 303' synth. Eager to repay such a lavish favour, Janson offered to remix a track Barrot was working on, an offer which eventually resulted in this 12". Four versions of "Balanzat" feature here, with an original, acid reflux, Tuff City Kids refix and ambient reprise to choose from. If this is the only Talamanca System record we will see it's a shame as it's a mighty fine addition to the International Feel discography.

Review: Undoubtedly the most popular artist on the ever increasing Ninja Tune roster, it's always great to see some new material from the studio of Si 'Bonobo' Green, especially as he's spent the best part of two years touring his fifth studio LP. "Flashlight" is sadly not a cover of the Funkadelic classic of the same name, but it does demonstrate Bonobo at the top of his powers, weaving together an intoxicating melange of garage-brushed rhythms, ocean deep basslines, cooing vocals and compulsive textures. It's complemented by two tracks that draw Bonobo closer to the dancefloor; the playful, broken rhythms of "Pelican" contend for top spot with "Return To Air" which has a touch of the Jamie xxs to it.

Review: No 27 in the Wolf Music discography sees the Lupine London label look to the Lowlands (try saying that five times in a row) and introduce their network to the talents of Dutch duo Homework. As Homework, Amsterdam-based Tom Waist and Zip Stolk have racked up a clutch of releases for Shir Khan's Exploited label over the past four years and their brand of classicist Chicago house is most definitely high grade Wolf material. It's hard to describe the three Homework cuts here as anything other than luscious with "Time & Time" a definite highlight thanks to the vocal sample flip. Includes a rather dusty remix from Wolf Music regular Greymatter.

New Best Friend (instrumental) - (6:24) 116 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having recently impressed with the superb "Flash" on Craig Bratley's admirable Magic Feet label, Rich Lane returns to his Cotton Bud imprint with "New Best Friend", a bubbling chunk of new beat-inspired nu-disco. The original version laces a wonky, pitched-down spoken word vocal over sharp synths, bubbly electronics and a bassline that's reminiscent of some of Chicken Lips' classic productions on Kingsize. It's a kind of hymn to the joys of dancing with strangers, which is no bad thing. There's an alternative Instrumental included, too, which sounds even more like Chicken Lips jamming with the Confettis in Ghent, circa 1989.

Review: Roots For Bloom SHAG Edits series returns with volume 3. M.James brings us a track that will catch any music lovers ear. With the crisp percussion, delicate guitar riffs, a bassline that keeps evolving throughout and that vocal, this one ticks all the boxes. On the flip label boss Jamie Trench maintains the general feel for the record. This one focusing on a simpler yet just as effective bassline and obviously being heavily reliant on the sample being in the shag edits series. If you're looking for that record that stands out from the rest, this is the weapon you need.

Review: Delusions of Grandeur present a second selection of tracks from Session Victim's superb sophomore set See You When You Get There, the German duo's acclaimed follow-up to 2012 debut The Haunted House of House. Predictably, there's much to admire, from the jazz keys and skewed deep house swing of opener "Do It Now", to the rubbery disco bass, smoky atmospherics and Moodymann style, jazz-flecked grooves of "Make People Dance". There's also a hip-hop tempo excursion in the form of the heady title track, and - best of all - a deep, bluesy disco-house jam in the shape of the brilliant "Hey Stranger".

Review: Baaz has been quietly building up an impressive discography since 2007, delivering quality deep house on labels such as Elevate, Quintessentials and Slices of Life. Here he returns to his Office Recordings imprint with his most ambitious release yet - a long-promised debut album. While there's plenty of spacey, dancefloor-focused club tracks - see "Closed", "Endori", the becalmed "Anyway" and pleasingly picturesque "Glass Voice" - the Berlin-based producer also takes the opportunity to showcase a previously undisclosed love of downtempo beats. So, we get the Motor City electronics and glitchy beats of "Spacehub", the ambient hip-hop of "Pressyn", and the beautiful, beatless electronica of opener "Everyone". The result is a rich, evocative album with its head in the clouds, and its feet on the floor.

Review: Legendary bassline producer DJ Q comes through with the first in a series of self-released bombshells on his own Q Recordings outlet. "Ordinary People" is a classic Q floor-filler packed with an artillery of swinging hi-hats and claps - and some lovely female vocals, of course - but you also get a 2-step mix of the same track for some extra groove flex in the groove.

from $1.49
Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a digital-only roundup of some of the best 2014 releases from Amsterdam heavyweights Rush Hour, and their associated labels. As you'd expect, there's a mix of fresh material, reissues (see Push/Pull's ace "Bang The Drums" and "Africa", and the sinewy deep house of Vincent Floyd's 1990 gem "Your Eyes") and lesser-known album tracks (the undulating jazz-house brilliance of Awanto3's "Bubbles Made Me Cry"). It makes for a great listen, of course, with plenty of top-notch dancefloor moments for DJs willing to mix it up. Contrast, for example, the Detroit electro of DJ Stingray's "Temporary Bond", the picturesque, sub-aquatic techno of Population One, and the glitchy, midtempo warmth of Joris Voorn's "The Recipe".

Review: When announcing the release of her sophomore set, Steffi Doms told Resident Advisor that it was "much more about how I see the dancefloor these days" than her "conceptual" 2011 debut, Yours & Mine. While there are some IDM and vintage electro influnces - most notably on opener "Pip", throbbing electrofunk jam "Treasure Seeking" (a hook-up with old pals Dexter and Virginia) and the picturesque closing track "Fine Friend" - for the most part Doms sticks rigidly to the kind of club-friendly fodder with which she made her name. By and large, this means vibrant, Detroit-influenced techno, with the throbbing "Bag of Crystals" and sci-fi leaning "Selfhood" standing out.

Cosmic Ride EP by Daso on Dikso Cue Track
Ride Tide (original mix) - (6:56) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Apparently, deep house producer Daso - famed for his outings on Connaisseur Recordings and Still Von Talent - has been looking for an outlet to release the disco side of his work for some time. Here, he finally gets that chance with an EP of shimmering, melodious nu-disco chuggers on Dikso. Opener "Tide Waves" is particularly beautiful, with smothering strings, twinkling keys and bubbling electronics riding a sun-kissed Balearic disco groove. "Cosmic Alone" doffs a cap to Italo whislt retaining Daso's deft nu-disco touch, while standout "Ride Tide" is a Scandolearic disco gem with definite hints of Diskjokke, Blakbelt Andersen and Magnus International. Best of all, though, is Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe's voluptuous synth-house rework of "Tide Waves".

from $1.49
Review: Richard Grey has some history in house music, having played a part in developing the "French touch" style in the latter half of the 1990s. He's been active ever since (often under a dizzying array of aliases), though Positive Vibes is his first EP under his most famous pseudonym for almost 18 months. The track itself is something of a big room banger - a chunk of UK garage-influenced rave revivalism full of hands-in-the-air stabs, sub-bothering bass and ragga vocal samples. It comes backed with a strong remix package, from the bumpin', bass-driven thump of Rare Candy's speed garage-inspired take (think Armand Van Helden's Dark Garage Mix of 'Spin Spin Sugar'), to the bubbly, organ-laden two-step rework from ASMR and Lamont Dex.

Review: It seems somehow inevitable that the deliriously spiraling bleep-disco of Indonesian producer Jonathan Kusama would eventually come to the attention of French bleep-disco man Cosmo Vitelli. Well, it's happened, and it's a match made in heaven. The Gong 3000 EP on Vitelli's own I'm A Cliche, boasts four sizzlers - all intense and all great: "The Grand Search" is piano-led suspended production similar to the work of Bauer, the seriously cool title track references early '80s minimal wave/proto EBM and "Street Siren" is some pretty insane and schizophrenic raw house (reduced to a trippy pulse by Karamika). Essential.

Review: Sounding like a killer death move in an '80s 8-bit wrestling game, Dragon Suplex immediately fits right in with the Mullet aesthetic, even before we've heard the music. Speaking of which we get four retro tinged jams, just the way label boss Casio Social Club likes it. Highlights include the smooth but tough electro-house groover, "Something Something", the Shannon-esque "Playing With Me" and the vapour trail synth-washed "Proud".

from $1.49
Review: Proper deep house business from two of the most respected long-timers in the UK game. First up Art Of Tones delivers a beautifully clean swinger laced with the perfect amount of jazzy chords and a killer semi-spoken word vocal - so simple but devastatingly effective. "Got 2 Get 2", meanwhile, sees the Shadeleaf bossman Monkz get busy on a Chi-town flex. Rugged, jacking and just the right amount of sleazy, it wouldn't have gone amiss on Classic back in the day. For added weight and late night mischief jump on the dub. Trust us: you've got 2 get this one.

Devotion/Pala by Roland Tings on Internasjonal Norway Cue Track
Pala - (8:19) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: 2014 has been a vintage year for Melbourne music-makers, with Inskwel, Benny Badge, Andras Fox and Tornado Wallace all delivering killer releases. The latest Victoria producer to emerge from the shadows is Roland Tings, who returns to Internasjonal with his second EP for Prins Thomas's acclaimed label. "Devotion" kicks things off, layering bold riffs and glassy-eyed electronics over a chugging, 105 BPM Scandolearic groove. There's a touch more tropical humidity about virtual flipside "Pala", an eight-minute excursion that expertly layers Balearic electronics atop a killer bassline, jungle sound effects and dense, calypso-influenced nu-disco groove. It's this second track that really makes the EP, and suggests that there will be more to come from Roland Tings in 2015.

Swept Illusions (Arkajo remix) - (6:47) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Alkalino
Review: It's been nearly 20 months since Raphael Ripperton last donned the Headless Ghost guise for Clone's Royal Oak offshoot. While that release, the Frontend EP, was an exploration of hissing analogue deep house peppered with sly acid house references, Swept Illusions is an altogether more polished proposition. That's not meant as a criticism; if anything, the fizzing, Latin-influenced rhythms, twinkling electronics and sun-soaked pianos that dominate "Swept Illusions" are far more memorable. The remixes come from Genius of Time under their solo aliases. Dorisburg's 808 Dance Mix is a thrilling amalgamation of dense, tribal-influenced percussion, tough 808 drums and occasional foreboding electronic stabs. Arkajo takes a different approach, layering Balearic-friendly fiddles, pads and melodies atop a shuffling, low-slung groove.

J.U.N.E. - (5:36) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: While Italian producer Nicholas has always been obsessed with classic house - be it the piano-laden release of early '90s Italian productions or the New Jersey bump of later period Nu Groove - he's more than capable of producing deep house laden with soulful intensity. That's what's on offer across these four tracks, beginning with the heavy bass, dreamy chords and sensual vocal (provided by Shaun J Wright) of "Love Someone". The Italian wisely provides a darker, chunkier dub of the same track, before exploring acid and sprawling pianos on the deliciously effective "Message". Finally, "J.U.N.E" features an attractive blend of hazy freestyle vocals and cute Rhodes keys riding a fizzing, late '90s US deep house groove.

from $1.49
Review: The latest track to be chosen as a single from recent album Chrome Waves is "Just Wanna Be Loved", the original of which sounded like a wine bar on the South of France circa 1985 (in all the right ways). Here however, its all about the remixes and there's some killer reworks to be found. Highlights include the mystic beat voodoo-tech of Art Of Tone's title track rework, the vintage jazzy Euro-disco of Hot Toddy's dub of "Back Again" and slick speed garage of Animist's celestial reverie.

Review: Phantasy Sound serve up another pair of remixes from Daniel Avery's world-beating Drone Logic LP, and this time they've turned to Roman Flugel and Ricardo Tobar to deliver the goods. Flugel takes on "All I Need" and rustles up a startling peak time burner full of earworm synth shimmers that show the German producer in his most club-ready mode, while keeping a healthy dose of the low-key moody tones of his own recent output humming away in the calmer moments. Ricardo Tobar meanwhile takes "These Nights Never End" into a leftfield headspace full of fractious rhythms, heavy layers of melody and noise, and an all-round rousing atmosphere.

Born Again - (5:46) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: By his impeccable standards, Michael Baumann has had a pretty quiet year, with EPs on Musik Krause and Circus Company his only releases of note. Here, he finishes the year in style, returning to the Philpot label he co-founded with another impressive pair of tunes. While the heady deep house warmth of "Obsidian Fields" is nominally the lead cut - think soul-flecked Rhodes chords, sun-flecked guitars and unfussy grooves - virtual flipside "Born Again" is arguably a stronger proposition. While it, too, features some typically tactile electric piano motifs, it's built around the kind of raw, distorted, broken techno rhythm he does so well. The track manages to simultaneously be tough and dreamy - a particularly attractive proposition.

from $1.49
Review: Martyn's 3024 label returns with an extensive collection of works from rising UK house man Leon Vynehall. Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label back in 2012 with the Mauve EP, Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers, releasing subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus as well as collaborating with blog house survivor A1 Bassline under the Laszlo Dancehall alias. Having debuted on 3024 with last year's Open platter, Vynehall is back with Music For The Uninvited, a seven-track collection of tracks supposedly inspired by rides to school in his mother's car as a child in which he would listen to "mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers". Whilst there is plenty of the individual house sound Vynehall has developed on offer here ("It's Just (House Of Dupree)" is a certified jam) there are also more tranquil moments to bask in such as "Inside The Deku Tree" and "St Sinclair" which bookend this excellent release.

Review: Aussie DJ Hi-Shock has been running his influential Elektrax label for ages now, with its success eventually leading to the creation of a sub-label, Hypnotic, to cater for the deeper sounds he wanted to put out. Here he's reached out to Japan to source some new inspiration, featuring work from four separate producers - the synth pad-heavy minimal house of "My Funny Daughters" by Tominori Hosoya & Tomi Chair, the fuzzy contemplation of "Shiki" by Deep Inquisitive, the arpeggiated trance of "Light Line" by Asian Psilocybe Foundation and the swishy digi-washed fizz of "Club Harie" by "Takashi Watanabe".

Review: Having previously impressed with the robust On Acid on Absurd/Acid Test, and more thoughtful Hinterland on Ghostly International, Recondite transfers to Innervisions for this third full-length excursion. The German producer seems to be in a particularly introspective mood on Iffy, delivering tracks that variously explore deep, spacious techno (see "Baro"), evocative deep house and bittersweet electronica. For all the sparse rhythms and clandestine atmospherics, there's plenty of picturesque moments, from the unfurling beauty of "Konter" and glacial downtempo shuffle of "Steady", to the tear-jerking shimmer of "Jim Jams" and gorgeous "Levo". As a result, it's probably his strongest set to date.

Review: Kompakt's Total compilation series - an annual round up of gems from the imprint's tightly packed release schedule - must be one of the longest-running in dance music. Amazingly, this latest installment is the 14th volume in the series. For those who enjoy Kompakt's generally positive approach to electronic music - think tactile techno, ambient pop and skewed, synth-laden house from the likes of Michael Mayer, Thomas Fehlmann, Partial Arts and Gui Boratto - there's much to admire, including a slew of previously unreleased cuts. These include Superpitcher's "Delta", a sublime chunk of hypnotic e-tronica that's almost too melodic for its own good. Arguably even better is Weval's live recording of "Something", which is near perfect in its wide-eyed pop simplicity.

Review: It's the onset of a brave new era for Ostgut Ton as Panorama Bar 06 signals the label's decision to halt the manufacturing of CDs for their much loved series of mixes. Due for free download via the Ostgut site on August 11, the Berlin operation have not forgone the vinyl format with all the exclusives gathered by mix curator Ryan Elliott pressed up across a pair of 12" samplers. And boy did Elliott call in the favours with this first sampler featuring new and unreleased music from Neworldaquarium, Roman Flugel, Terrence Dixon, Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity. It is an overall exquisite selection, running from the ambience of NWAQ's contribution to Flugel's big room stomper and the sweeter, more playful sounds of Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity.

Review: When Ben Hackman first burst onto the scene with a spate of dubstep and garage-influenced anthems back in 2010, it seemed inconceivable that he would one day end up on 20:20 Vision. Clearly, he's mellowed with age. While "Carry On" boasts some subtle bass music influences - most notably at the bottom end - it's basically a dreamy, tech-tinged deep house record. Surprisingly, the accompanying Dub goes even deeper, and comes blessed with one seriously spine-tingling breakdown. Best of all, though is Rampa's remix of similarly deep bonus cut "The Blue (Instrumental)", which is built around heavy bass and loose African percussion. Brilliantly, it sounds like a lost Golden Teacher B-side.

Review: The sweet soul sound of the Wolf Music stable continues to course its way through producers new and old, and this time vocalist Ishmael is getting a whole release to himself after a few spots on the various artist EPs the label is prone to. There's a decent spread of moods here, with "Dejong" starting things off smooth and steady with its gentle Rhodes chords, before "Takoma" brings a more feisty kind of synth stab to bear on this late night heater. "Ashbury Roll" gets into a jazzy headspace with its choice keys and shuffling drums, and then Medlar steps up for a remix of "Takoma" that rains an embarrassment of boogie riches down upon the track.

Review: Growing up in Metro-Detroit, and having recently played on the 'Made in Detroit' stage at this year's Movement Festival, you'd have a fair idea of what to expect from Appian. Indeed, the influence of the Motor City's signature sound on much of the burgeoning talent's output is unmistakable. Yet Appian's forthcoming release 'Chatter EP' on FINA Records is a testament to his varied and experimental production style; a distinctive sound borne out of inspirations as varied as funk, experimental electronica, disco, "80s stuff", early house, and Aphex Twin.

Review: Looking back it's been a killer year for DJ Haus and his pair of labels, Unknown to the Unknown and Hot Haus, and it seems like he won't be easing the gears down from "unfcknrelenting" now December has arrived. The latest Hot Haus release (the sixth issued since September!) sees a welcome return for whippersnapper producer Palace whose Vision is the third release issued on the UTTU offshoot in a year! If you liked previous Palace releases you'll love the three tracks here, which are all raw and effective DJ tools sprinkled with immediacy, individuality and nagging basslines - "Solstice" in particular is a real burner of a track.

Review: Ben Jacobs ends 2014 the way he started it, with a dose of thrillingly sweet and melodious house on Mad Mats and Tooli's Local Talk imprint. "Somewhere Else" is a typically positive affair, with waves of ear-pleasing music box melodies, cheery chords and hazy vocal samples riding a swinging US garage groove. It's the kind of record you stick on to chase the blues away; it's almost impossible not to smile at its jaunty positivity. Ad Bourke tries a different tack on his rework, opting for a deeper, more melancholic sound and some hushed, DJ Sprinkles style beats. Even better is Hade 94's version, which adds a little analogue style grit and a booming, warehouse-friendly deep house feel.
