Review: Reykjavik's Felix Leifur has appeared previously for local homeboys Lagaffe Tales but really hits the big time now with his second release on Berlin's Dirt Crew with The Sunday Club EP; five delicious servings of dusty deep house goodness! The title track and "Berg Toppur" are the kind of lo-fi, hip-hop influenced house grooves that would make even Glenn Astro stand up and notice. Equally suited to a stoned Sunday afternoon stroll through Mauerpark is "Giving" however the sampled up soul/disco vibes makes for something more funky and sultry. There's a pretty sweet remix of "Berg Toppur" too by Hidden Spheres which goes for a more straight up and polished production with added dancefloor dynamic.

Review: 1080p's latest full-length comes from Elan Benaroch, who used the opportunity to debut a new alias, Elka. Chants is, in many ways, typical of the Vancouver label's output of late. Melodious, tactile, dreamy and spaced-out, it sees Benaroch paying tribute to a variety of vintage styles, from classic Chicago deep house ("Pass Groove"), and early '90s intelligent techno ("Expander"), to loved-up, Sueno Latino-era Italian dream-house ("BBX1999"), deep acid ("Silver Beach", "Couch Trax"), and boogie-flavoured synthesizer house ("Heard & Seen"). Predictably, it's a hugely enjoyable set, with Benaroch getting just the right balance between analogue-rich fuzziness and head-in-the-clouds melodiousness.

Review: Although not primarily known as a DJ, Los Angeles electrofunk hero Dam Funk boasts a killer record collection. That much is proved by this superb contribution to the DJ Kicks series. This DJ-friendly digital edition is chock full of highlights, from the deep, synth-heavy modern boogie of Moon B's superb "Ooof", and the bouncy, deep Chicago house of Gemini's "Log In", to the smooth, eyes-closed Yacht Rock grooves of "True To Yourself" by Terry Palkovic. Predictably, he's also found room for a string of lesser-known boogie and synth-funk gems, including all 14 minutes of Randall & Schippers' smooth "Love Jam", the sparkling boogie-soul of Take Three's "Tonight's The Night (For Love)", and a killer chunk of 1983 electro from Uncle Jamm's Army ("Dial-A-Freak", an early outing from The Egyptian Lover and friends).

Review: Flash Atkins (or Ben Davis) has been releasing steadily over the last 13 years, mainly on We Are Woodville and of course Paper Recordings who present the remix compilation of tracks from last year's great The Life And Times Of Flash Atkins LP. There's some awesome makeovers on here and so many to choose from. But for our money, our picks are The Revenge's take on "The Wilderness", Reverso 68's Pete Herbert delivering a funky injection to "Saved By The Fall" and Andy Meecham aka The Emperor Machine lending "Summer Of Love" some of his unmistakeable arpeggios, turning the track into a right boogie playground.

For Those Who Feel - (6:06) 127 BPM

Review: Collaborations from Dutch pair Steffi and Martyn under the Doms & Deykers alias have been frustratingly intermittent with just the sole 12" and a contribution to last year's Zehn boxset from Ostgut Ton. This 12", Dedicated To Those Who Feel, is apparently the precursor to a full album from the duo which is great news! "It's You See" sets the tone, cleverly fusing 808 State style chords, pitched-up vocal samples, warehouse-friendly analogue bass, and the sweaty hustle of techno rhythms. "Bafff" continues the retro-futurist theme, with restless rave stabs and psychedelic acid lines peppering a locked-in groove, before they explore deeper - if no less loved-up - territory on the colourful warmth of "For Those Who Feel". It is, as expected, a rather fine EP.

Review: Following up some great tracks by Anthony Brooklyn and Times Are Ruff Parisian DJ Steaw, he of Steaward and Rutilance vinyl imprints, is back with the Aquarius EP on the Tommorow, Is Now Kid! Label. The title track is the kind soulful and emotive deep house that this talented producer is fast making a name for himself with, covered in just the right amounts of dust and rust but with a good dose of bump and shuffle too. "Off Side" is smoother, with those swirling and hypnotic Rhodes keys and mesmerizing pads do most of the most of the work over a clever 808 drum workout. "Let The Deep" goes for more of the Detroit style high tech soul flavour in impressive fashion calling to mind the housier side of early Underground Resistance or Octave One.

Review: Gorgon City are Matt and Kye from London and hot off a well-received tour of the US with Rudimental, they now present their new single. "Money" is a driving and adrenalised peak time tech house cut that ticks all the right boxes: razor sharp bassline, tight rhythm, trippy synths and massive headrush style drops. The remix by the NYC don of house David Morales (yes, you heard that right!) is not the kind of funky disco house you'd usually expect, rather an even darker and twisted journey than the original that ploughs away in sinister and tunnelling fashion. Tech house prankster Riva Starr also lends a hand, giving the track a much more funky and upbeat rendition.

Review: The title of Alexander 'Credit 00' Dorn's latest release does him something of a disservice. While there is no doubt that the Uncanny Valley boss knows how to craft intoxicating rhythms, there is a lot more to his capabilities. "TRM" sees snappy drums and a tracky rhythm underpin swooning deep house synths, while on "Curse of the Medusa", an unnamed woman claims 'I gave you my heart' over hypnotic 90s techno filters. "Voodoo Soup", with its insistent kettle drums and dubbed out percussion, pushes the release towards the tool-style functionality, but as the bleep-heavy "Snake Charmer" demonstrates, it is clear that there is far more to this German producer than linear dance floor rhythms.

Review: Seminal London house imprint TAK ran from 1998 - 2005 and was responsible for some wicked music to 'those in the know'. Thankfully Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter have plundered the vaults to re-release some of the labels finer moments such as Timedwellers with their dusty and jackin groove "Barbuda" from 2002, the mysterious Kat Williams with his tough acid jacker "Evrybody". Furthermore, there; the sexy and soulful "Acid Mood" which continues on tweaking that little silver box to wicked effect alongside same pitched up James Brown samples. Solomon steps in too, to give William's "Hexodus (dub)" a great remix that's worth your time also.

Review: With a title like "Piano Cannon" you'd be forgiven in thinking Taiki and Low Steppa have cooked up a house cut of such funky proportions you'd think it was gilded by Morillo's mum herself. But no; the pianos barely get a look-in as the two hot-to-trot producers lay down a shuffling, mildly broken house shuffled coded with computer bleepery where the full emphasis on dark missions rather than any OTT evangelism. "Lazer" maintains the chugging spirit as we're peppered with tripped FX over another heads-down UKG style beat and some slippery low-end dynamics.

Review: Bucharest's The Guy From Downstairs doesn't pursue the usual hypno-minimalist stylings of his fellow countrymen, he keeps it pretty normal but rest assured it's really good. Certainly vibrant as demonstrated on his debut the La Di Da Di EP for Phil Weeks' Robsoul. Starting out with the funky disco loops of "Chuuch" he really sets the tone quite well for the rest of the EP to follow. "Insir Rope" gets some rolling funk groove happening and still utilising those infectious latin loops so damn well. "The Mesteacan" features one razor sharp arpeggio that carries this smooth and soulful track and is perfect for those cool down moments. But if "Bogart's Groove" is his nickname for a boompty groove, we're down with that in a way that Derrick Carter or Mark Farina would too.

"The Observer" is funky, stripped and rolling minimal/tech house that will appeal to fans of Jamie Jones or recent Apollonia releases. "Maravillosa" injects some latin flair into it plus getting a bit more uptempo with its tightly programmed rhythm. It also gets a tough and gutsy remix by Kevin Over (VIVa/Truesoul) which will come in handy when you're playing the peak time opposed to the afterhour.

Cloud 9 (original instrumental mix) - (5:24) 120 BPM
from $2.18
Review: In previous years, Kasper Bjarrke has focused on delivering atmospheric music that can variously be described as woozy, Balearic and intoxicating. In 2016, he's upped his game, moving further towards the dancefloor in a bid to incite saucer-eyed glee amongst dancers. Intriguingly, his original instrumental of "Cloud 9" is a spacey affair, with star-kissed chords and dreamy pads riding a snappy, 808-electro rhythm. Gerd Janson provides the headline remix, fusing Bjarrke's deliciously intergalactic chords with bubbling acid lines, spiraling electronic top lines, and punchy, drum machine-driven house rhythms. It's really rather good, as you'd expect, lifting the package into "must-have" territory.

"John F Kennedy" is a sublime serving of deep house with the right amount of atmosphere and bounce, plus that vocal sample singing the praise for the late great President gives it that extra touch of emotion. Second track "Macintosh Mike & His Magic Modular" stays on with the woozy and mysterious vibes following in the tradition of greats such as Jimpster and Pezzner.

Review: Phillip Meier aka Sante is back. The rising star from Southern Germany presents us with "909 Basement" for the Knee Deep In Sound powerhouse. The title track lives up to its name, with the drum machine's stomp and hiss driving the track for the most part and perfect for sub level shut ins that go 'til late. "Text Message" is more the kind of funky party starting tech house you'd expect from the label: tight rhythm, sharp bassline and trippy synth melodies and works a treat. Finally "Endless" is more of a tough and bass driven DJ tool for the peak time that will elevate adrenaline levels as good as a Gruuv or Saved track anyway.

Review: Audaz label boss Alkalino continues his explorations of the outer reaches of house here on the imprint's latest missive, the split Stand Fast & How I Knew EP. First up Markus Enochson's "Stand Fast" is reworked by DJR, who turns in a wonderfully deep but thumping house grind complete with malfunctioning retro organ riff. Next Alkalino gets submerged in percussion with Deep Blast for the hypnotic collaboration "How I Knew". It's a new direction...and we like it!

Review: Grzegorz and Wojciech are back - has it really been ten years now that these guys have been plying their craft? Some would consider them legends now. The Polish via Berlin duo are back with a couple of sleek tech house cuts for their always reliable Pets Recordings imprint. "Opsi Bubsi"has just the right amount of bump and bounce to warm up crowds during the pre-peak time slot. Otherwise "Elixir" gets deep and atmospheric on that Crosstown Rebels esoteric vibe with layers of hypnotising pads doing most of the work over a low slung groove.

Force Carrier - (6:27) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: Since 2008, Kazuki 'Kez YM' Yamaguchi has been a reliable source of club-ready deep house, delivering regular releases for the likes of Yore, City Fly and Faces. Here, he returns to his roots, appearing on Gerd's 4Lux label for the first time since unveiling his quietly impressive debut EP, Sweetly Confused. Highlights include the conga-laden, Theo Parrish-ish shuffle of "Turns Me Off", and opener "Force Carrier", whose mighty percussion track layers loose, African drumming over a formidable kick-drum pattern. Arguably best of all, though, is the snappy-but-deep warmth of "Repair My Head", which sounds like a long lost Chez Damier jam.

Review: Laurie Shenoda's back everyone; look out! The Chromatics EP sure shows that he's still got it too, as evidenced on some other great ones recently on Electric Minds and ManMakeMusic. "Musical Mob" is a sleek serving of dancefloor drama; dark enough and with that razor sharp bassline doing most of the work, it'll sure move the floor! "Blame" sees Shenoda get on the more experimental tip with this menacing, broken industrial workout that'll add a nefarious touch to the middle of your DJ set, while the restrained groove of "Shores" still has the right amount of adrenaline on this well executed tech house cut.

Review: Ed Ed of Canada is now based in Berlin and has appeared thus far on the likes of Noir, DFTD, Bedrock, Defected and can now add Sasse's always impressive Moodmusic to the list. This guy's one to watch and he delivers the goods again on the Nanaimo EP: four dark journey tracks engineered for pure dancefloor euphoria. The title track's soaring synth leads, rich tapestry of pads and humming bass ticks all the right boxes. "Lilly" gets even more epic, building the vibe gracefully and that synth lead has some serious 'wonk' in it, wicked! "Sentinel" offers a bit more in variation on this fairly stripped and skinky tech house cut that's perfect to build the set pre-peak time.
