Review: As one of the hookiest slices of audio sleaze on his recent Magenta LP, Jimmy Edgar's "Sex Drive" gets the remix treatment from a choice pair of producers, getting the slick electro tones rounded into equally hot-blooded forms. Jon Convex is up first, keeping much of the essence of the original but working it into an electro house template and layering in some choice big room dynamics, while his dub mix simply ditches the vocal turns leaving the track in its raw form. John Talabot takes a thoroughly different tact, issuing forth dramatic piano tones and poised drums that turn Edgar's track into an emotionally wrought nine-minute epic.

Review: Po-faced disco and boogie purists should probably steer clear of this five-tracker from the Tru Funk crew. For the rest of us, there's plenty to enjoy. The action is typically floor-friendly, offering party hearty thrills with just enough purist flavour to impress. Agent 86 drops a deliciously synth-heavy stepper in the form of "Sticky Funk", while Jamie Ruz closes his eyes and lets the jazzual guitar solos flow on the soft focus boogie-soul jam "Lovers Delight". Yomakomba's "Hold You" should inspire a few "moments" on the dancefloor with its sinewy combination of '80s soul and Balearic house chug, while Trotter's "40 Degrees" is a slamming chunk of slap bass-heavy disco house.

Review: The adoption of a new name and a new sound by Marcus Intalex has been one of this year's success stories, with his rattling brand of warehouse appropriate techno under the Trevino moniker gracing labels as diverse as [Naked Lunch], Apple Pips and Craig Richards' The Nothing Special. With a forthcoming debut on Klockworks on the way, Trevino returns to Martyn's 3024, the label where this new name was first established. Then appearing on a split release with Instra:mental, Trevino comes through with a full release in Tactical Manoeuvre EP which brandishes three tracks that showcase the different styles and sounds of the producer. The murky warehouse vibes of the title track make it the Juno favourite here but all three productions here are clearly the work of a producer in a rich vein of form.

Review: The artist otherwise known as Marcus Intalex has been making serious waves over the past year with his techno leaning Trevino alias, and following releases on Martyn's 3024, [Naked Lunch] and The Nothing Special, he steps up to Appleblim's Apple Pips for his biggest release to date, swapping linear 4/4 for something altogether more interesting. "Indulge" is a particularly Drexciyan number complete with breakbeat rhythm and dystopian pads, while "Under Surveillance" is a significantly moodier cut which combines the atmosphere of early dubstep with a jagged electro bassline.

Review: Intent on delivering retro-futuristic club music, Classicworks have teamed up US producers Nick Hook, Vin Sol and Matrixxxman to deliver 3 pure underground dancefloor bangers. Looking to the past for inspiration, but also ensuring contemporary intensity, these tracks are not for the faint hearted! 'I Can Feel It' is old-skool techno with fast footwork-esque drums, '666 Wayz' is pure minimal ghetto house and 'High Volume' ends proceedings with a relentless kick and a plethora of retro vocal samples. You might want a little lie down after dancing to all three in a row.

Review: After breaking through with some powerful EPs on Night Slugs, Girl Unit is back to continue what he started. Interestingly, the grimey element in his earlier output has been replaced by a screamingly loud electro influence, positioned in the kind of snappy funk favoured by EDMX and his Breakin Records posse. From "Ensemble (Club Mix)" to "Plaza", the sharp edges of the synth work chafe against crisp drum machine workouts, leaving six cold crush bangers in their wake. It's something of a departure for Girl Unit, but he's absolutely nailed the target sound with tracks that will absolutely tear up the dance.

Review: Creme Organisation drop a four tracker from the experimental outfit, The Black Exorcist. A mysterious and elusive minimal techno soundscape merges with a dub feel to create three tracks of uneasy, tension filled disturbia. Marco Bernardi is on hand to remix "Brass Knuckles" to close the EP in style.

Review: The Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team - better known as label operators Orgasmic and Teki Latex - return with more of their uniquely French take on bass music with a double header of electro infused heaters. "Activate" combines motivational rap vocals with stripped back 808s, an infectiously wonky sense of melody and a tweaked out synth line, while "I Be" is more explicit in is homage to dirty south rap, as DX7 bass and chopped and screwed vocals combine with triumphant synth horns in a gloriously retro pastiche. As if that wasn't enough, instrumentals and accapella versions are provided for those who wish to get creative with their mixing.

Review: Here we have some recent recordings from veteran Detroit electro heroes Aux 88. Traditional electro is typically the order of the day here which, when produced with such aplomb as is here, not necessarily a bad thing. "Pocket Radio" is clearly indebted to Kraftwerk, with Autobahn-esque rolling bleeps that give way to a lovely and unexpected bassline halfway through. "Electro Slaves" is killer horror electro that could be Heinrich Muller at his finest as could be "If Am Was FM". Lastly, "Lock Groove", updates the sound somewhat with breakbeats and acidic squelches.

Review: DMX Krew is back with a twisted, body-morphing collection of tunes on his own Breakin' Records, the label which the man has been curating since the mid-90s. Once again we're treated to a beautiful cocktail of electro deluge and machine-drum psychedelia; "Honeydew" is a classic DMX cut with enough funk to leave you roasted on the floor, while "Dramatic Exit" heads even further down the rave era thanks to its slippery beat layout and nostalgic melodies. "Sppoookey" is an AFX-reminiscent hurter, complete with plenty of acid licks and gritty-as-hell drum programming, whilst "Apple Grid" takes a bouncier approach to things and "Superficial Appearance" blends far-out acid trickles, heavy snares, DMX grit and spits it back out into a luscious deep house belter...something only the man is capable of.
