Mosca's Not So Much has seen the producer's style progress gloriously over the last couple of years from his UK bass beginnings to some of the freshest explorations in house and techno. On Cedar Wood State (Vector mix)" he throws down the kind of trippy and cyclical machine techno that you'd usually attribute to the likes of Mike Parker or Abdulla Rashim; this one is absolutely mental! On the flip Cedar Wood State (Volt mix)" is a bass heavy electro jam that works that beat repeat to monstrous effect. The kind of track you'd hear at a serious Detroit electro party like No Way Back. Tip!
Bordello A Parigi's long-running Riviera Disco series is undeniably nostalgic in outlook, serving up new music inspired by imaginary European beach holidays in the early-to-mid-80s. That's not meant as a criticism, as the music is invariably superb. This sixth installment delivers plenty of sparkling, retro-futurist thrills, from the tactile, slightly melancholic synth-disco shuffle of John Parsley & Jack Pattern's "Sequential Move", to the classic, arpeggios-and-cheery melodies of Luca Dell'Orso's ZYX style Italo-disco bubbler "Wave No. 3". Those fantasizing about sweaty, late night dances in sticky, sea front clubs should head for the muscular grooves, druggy arpeggios and spacey melodies of Daniel Kyo's "Cami De Pinedo", and the eyes-closed bliss of Mystery of Science's luscious "Planet of Love".
