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.

New Best Friend by Rich Lane on Cotton Bud Cue Track
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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

from $1.49
Review: Given the soul-soaked and generally far-sighted nature of techno veteran Fabrice Lig's music, it's unsurprising to see him popping up on Carl Craig's esteemed Planet E label. Galactic Soul Odyssey more than lives up to its title, too, largely eschewing dancefloor techno rhythms in favour of tracks that bristle with the positivity of P-funk, boogie, broken beat and high class synth-pop (think rubbery slap bass, kaleidoscopic synths, '80s soul vocals and bouncy rhythms). It's a deliciously positive set, all told, with just the right balance between studied retro-futurism and effortlessly melodious atmosphere. Certainly, it's something of a triumph - an accessible romp with enough musical depth to please even the choosiest of heads.

Review: Hot on the heels of Alkalino's From The Vaults EP comes a second selection of forgotten and overlooked gems from the Portuguese producer's seemingly bulging archives. While the first volume focused entirely on his original productions - mostly in a deep house vein - this expansive, 11-track LP focuses more on his disco-leaning work. In practice, that means a range of tracks - both re-edits and remixes- that variously join the dots between disco, electrofunk, soul, funk and deep house. There are naturally plenty of previously unheard gems, from the raw synths and proto-house flex of "Get On Down" rework "U Feel It Thru" and the spiraling, oddball disco-funk of "Guitars", to the baggy Balearic flex of "James Brown" (a tasteful and groovy edit of TomTom Club's "Genius of Love").

Review: Famed across the country throughout the '90s as one of the first promoters to import big US house DJs, Hard Times' relaunch has been a refreshing reminder of house music's heritage and longstanding influence beyond the current cookie-cutter deep house bubbles. For its second release it takes us back to 1996 with eight different remixes of Karen Pollard's criminally overlooked classic. Each version slaps, but highlights include the grunting bass rumbles of Mineo's mix, the tunnelling sub drone of Mat Playford's mix and the rising refrain of the bass hook on Spen and Soulfuledge's mix.

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.

Fields Of May - (7:32) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: According to the press release accompanying this latest single from New Zealand duo Reed and Radley, lead cut "Descenders of the Faith" is "the sound of a late '80s warehouse rave invaded by an android Liberace, as re-imagined by Buck Rogers in the 25th century". In other words, it's a retro-futurist gem, where classic house pianos and bubby electronics meet driving beats and sweaty late night charm. There's more of a straightforward, dub-flecked deep house feel to "Headstones", before "Fields Of May" takes a trip back to the halcyon days of house music via a chunky Chicago bassline, New Jersey grooves and classic Italian house riffs.

Local Talk Vs Garito - Music Joined Us by Nacho Velasco/Various on Local Talk Cue Track
Gran Reserva Local Talk Vs Garito (continuous mix by Nacho Velasco) - (1:19:51) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: In a bid to celebrate 16 years in business, Mallorca-based Garito Cade Bar has joined forces with the like-minded souls from Sweden's Local Talk imprint. The result is a collection compiled and mixed by resident DJ Nacho Velasco, featuring both well-known and previously unheard gems from Mad Mats and Tooli's well-loved label. While many people will have some of the better known material here - think Fred Everything's excellent "Brothers & Sisters (PM Atlantic)", HNNY's "Fr The Very Forst Time" and Kyodai's "Something Special" - it's the previously unheard selections that make it Music Joined Us worth investigating. Of these new cuts, it's Tommy Rawson's lusciously loose "7 Days" and Jesse Futerman's smouldering "Life Is A Gamble" - smoky soul re-made as Latin-tinged deep house - that stand out.

Review: Bambounou again proves he is a reliable source for straight up dancefloor music devoid of pretence and full of quality. The producer's French house side shines through on this fourth release for 50Weapons, but he still holds on to the ghetto vibe he's shown on his ClekClekBoom releases, while keeping it deep. "Feel Like This" features a skipping house beat with a repetitive vocal and evolving background textures, while "Onto This" is a fuller alternative thanks to upfront chords and extra percussion.

Review: Bear Fresh has been unstoppable in 2014, delivering a strong run of releases covering the groovier echelons of funky through to the deeper strains of bass music. Howson's Groove debuted on the Chasing Unicorns label earlier this year and this second release, a garage-laced, bass-heavy EP of moody, stepping house tracks comes fitted with a darker Dosage remix of the spritely title-track. The EP's final track, "One", straddles the divide between both attitudes with grimy melodies offset by summery vocals.

from $1.49
Review: Here's something different from Local Talk: an EP from Cologne-based twosome Hade & Gutta that fuses the imprint's usual classic US house influences with the unmistakable boom of UK bass music. Opener "Nothing Wrong" is the real killer, a rambunctious fusion of speaker-rattling sub, punchy US garage vocal samples and relentless stabs. "In Me" is noticeably deeper, with classic strings and bubbling electronics riding a shuffling but potent groove. Finally, Hade goes solo on "Baphome", an ultra-deep excursion blessed with shimmering chords, sparse-but-heavy rhythms and some choice hip-hop vocal samples. It's the EP's most laidback moment, but it still packs some serious punch.

Review: Roy Comanchero is a bit of a mystery. According to the brief bio accompanying this debut EP for Gerd Janson's Running Back imprint, Comanchero "hates modern production tools like laptops" and travels round looking for beaches to inspire his records. There's certainly a vintage feel to the four tracks showcased here, which combine heavy electrofunk basslines and classic synthesizer lines with Scandolearic melodies and a hazy deep house sensibility. It's a formula that guarantees good fun, from the Terje-does-boogie grooves of "Pugs Life" and bubbling analogue deep house of "The Delete of Society", top the slowly unfurling Balearic bliss of "New Horizons".

Review: Tony Beardsley's unsigned productions caught the ear of a number of well-regarded DJs, including Daniel Avery and Craig Bratley. The latter decided to take a punt on signing the producer, releasing this debut EP on his Magic Feet imprint. "Return of the Oscillator" is quietly impressive; combining post-EBM and new-beat elements with the kind of midtempo chug and nu-Balearic flourishes for which Bratley's label has become so renowned. The Hardway Brothers provide the obligatory remix, delivering a gnarled techno revision with plenty of quietly twisted electronics and just a whisper of acid. "Galactic", which features additional production from Hardway Brothers man Sean Johnston, dips the tempo for additional hazy Balearic flavour.

Epsilon Girls - (5:49) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: If it's sophisticated deep house you're after, Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings usually delivers the goods. This latest missive is no exception. It comes from Australian producer Andy Hart, who has recently collaborated with Francis Inferno Orchestra and Max Graef, dropping 12"s on Melbourne Deepcast and Sleazy Beats Black Ops. Hart's style is deep, tactile and quietly soulful, with toasty pads and hazy melodies riding chunky grooves and warm basslines. The four tracks here stick to this formula, mixing up the styles and influences a little for good measure. So, there's a touch of sleaziness about the old school bump of "Hermano" and the bluesy "Epsilon Girls" (our pick), while the darting "The Same For Me" is an altogether smoother proposition.

Review: Anything Eddie Ruscha touches is generally worth checking, and this latest outing for Lectric Sands offshoot It's A Lectric World is no exception. Ruscha kicks things off with the Electric Dub, an untypically funky fusion of his usual vivid psychedelics, exotic vocal samples, crunchy guitars and an undulating disco-rock groove. The Original Rub - all bubbling electronics, muted guitar licks and deep house warmth - adds a little Balearic disco flavour, before Ruscha returns to more familiar territory with the delay-laden and pleasingly out-there Lectric Dub. Finally, he reaches for the marimbas on the Pleasing dub, an afro-influenced blast of wide-eyed Balearic sunshine complete with lilting pedal steel.

D-Rail - "Bring It On Down" (feat Randy B - Joey Negro edit) - (5:28) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Given the rising popularity of contemporary house records influenced by classic Italian house, it's perhaps unsurprising that Dave Lee has chosen to release a collection of classic Italo house cuts. Here, three of that compilation's best-loved cuts get the re-edit treatment. Lee dons his familiar Joey Negro alias for two perfectly pitched reworks; a shuffling and melodious rendition of Shafty's deliciously wide-eyed 1991 cut "Deep Inside of You (Soul Trance Mix)", and an undulating, electric piano-laden tweak of D-Rail's breakbeat-driven "Bring It On Down". If that wasn't enough to get you salivating, there's also a rolling, piano-laden rearrangement of Keytonics Ensemble's 1990 anthem "House of Calypso" (not to be confused with the record's better known flipside, "Calypso of House").

Review: Chesus seems to be in a happy place right now. Certainly, there's a confident and outgoing feel about his second outing for 4Lux under the Earl Jeffers alias. All four tracks feel like the product of enjoyable studio sessions, and almost bristle with celebratory release. "Jump", which recalls the disco-inspired bump of early '90s New York house whilst adding sturdier bottom end, leads the way. Following close behind is "Elevation", a carnival-friendly fusion of pounding percussion, snaking synths and booming bass. "Intergalactic Jam" is a warm and rich exercise in stargazing deep house, while the curious "Bootsy's Nightmare" is hard to pin down. Listen carefully, and you can hear influences from UK funky, UKG, kuduro and ultra-deep house.

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.

Review: UK soul singer Terri Walker has always had good creative ties with the Greenmoney crew - Leo Greenslade (YoYo Club) and Alex Phountzi (Bugz In The Attic), but on "Feel Right" they've really upped their game. It's a short and sweet seductive disco funk pop gem and totally deserves to seriously bother the charts. For the clubs Funk Butcher delivers a suitably deep garage house bomb of a mix and Boxwork go straight for the commercial jugular with a classy funky house peak-timer.

Review: It's nice to see Futureboogie Recordings expanding its repertoire. Here, it welcomes old pal Mark Evetts to the roster, with the Birmingham-born producer delivering a pleasingly intoxicating trio of tracks. "Activity" picks up where his recent Product of Industry LP left off, with waves of analogue style synthesizers, Balearic chords and sparse melodies riding a chugging, arpeggio-heavy groove. "Night Heart" recalls Evetts' work on the E-Versions series, adding moody synths to a groove created from samples of Wings' end-of-night dub disco classic "Goodnight Tonight". Finally, "Shapes" sits somewhere between deep house chug and Balearic disco charm, with Evetts' usual loops slowly building towards a spine-tingling climax.

Review: Those who like their deep house warm, organic and blessed with heaps of live instrumentation should already be familiar with Bruno Hovart's Patchworks project; he has, after all, been delivering delicious musical titbits since 2002. This latest EP is predictably luscious. Opener "Time", featuring regular collaborator Mr Day on vocals, is particularly tasty, with organic beats and walking bass wrapped up in clipped guitars and soulful chords. "Let's Spend Some Time" is effectively a dub of the title track, and is in many ways a superior version; it has a denser, more percussive feel, plus some fantastic electric piano solo action. Also worth checking is "Keep On Pushing", a superb blend of thickset synth bass and hazy deep house warmth.

It also inaugurates the YUMMY label, with HNNY pushing a sound that lands somewhere between Leon Vynehall, Axel Bowman and Mark E. "6:30" is the EP's sweet and breezy tune, while "9:15" is a beatdown house track full of the chiming Rhodes keys you'd expect to hear in a Francis Inferno Orchestra warm up set. Lastly, "12:00" skirts into killer Balearic disco territory.

Review: This is a significant moment in the development of Michael "Huxley" Dodson. Following six years building his reputation via a constant trickle of singles, the London-based producer has finally delivered a debut album. It's a little more expansive and varied than many of his singles, and variously touches on many of his regular inspirations - UK garage, deep house and bumping techno, in particular - as well as some he's not previously explored (see the pitched-down rave breaks of "Give 2 U" and the "Circles"-ish liquid D&B of "MXR"). The result is a polished, floor-friendly set that impressively straddles the line between club tracks and home listening fodder.

Review: Matt Swift's Shabby Doll imprint has enjoyed a strong 2014, delivering quality singles from the likes of Nail, South West Seven, Ste Roberts and James Welsh. Here, Swift turns to fast-rising, LA-based Londoner Urula, AKA producer Taylor Freels. Opener "Banshee Boardwalk" builds a killer deep house cut around a classic rock break, with hazy chords and picturesque melodies slowly stretching out over the crunchy, live-sounding groove. There's a classic piano house feel about the hustling "Heaven Unlimited", while Daj hook-up "BeforeHandMan" is a classic chunk of Detroit-influenced tech-soul at a deep house tempo. Finally, James Welsh remixes the latter track, turning it into an alien chunk of foreboding deep house soul.

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.
