Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

from $1.93
Played by: & my mother say
Review: Steve Huerta's first single for Amadeus, 2014's Apotheke, was widely praised for its' fusion of bumpin' deep house grooves and trippy, tech-tinged sounds. In contrast, Apache Line begins with "Mandala", a breezy, warm and lightly melodious deep house cut that benefits greatly from some intricate synth-work throughout. The deep and musically rich vibe continues on the Kaidi Tatham style broken beat-meets-jazz-funk flex of "EisTee", before Youandewan lends a hand on the bumpin', late night shuffle of "Apache Line". Youandewan gets a chance to go solo, too, completing a fine EP with the deliciously hypnotic, ocean-deep throb of "Yo Endlos".

Dirty Stories - (7:57) 121 BPM

Review: French legend Ludovic Llorca is back under the Art Of Tones guise for the always impressive Local Talk. Acid soul funk? You bet! Take a listen to I "Just Can't (Get Over It)" and you'll believe there is such a thing. On the flip, the smooth and soulful groove continues on "Dirty Stories" which has an undeniably French touch about it, with good use wonky synths, emotive strings and SP1200 style vocal cut ups. Deepness in the vein of Pepe Braddock or Chateau Flight.

Hey Mr DJ - (6:11) 125 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Since making his debut on the label in 2006, Joss Moog has been one of Robsoul Recordings most prolific artists. The Parisian specializes in the kind of fuss-free, club-ready tackle that blends elements of "French Touch" style disco-house, the "boompty" deep house funk of Derrick Carter, and more tech-tinged, bass-heavy excursions. These influences can be clearly heard on the four tracks that make up "Triple Loop", all of which could be regarded as proper dancefloor jackers. Highlights wise, we're particularly enjoying the jazzy organ riffs and chunky U.S deep house style of "Hey Mr DJ" and the Carter-esque heavy Chicago bump of "Triple Loop", though it's all pretty damn good.

Lovebirds - "Feel The Bern" (Talkbox edit) - (6:59) 116 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Stee Downes and Lovebirds' are old pals, and first joined forces for a 12" on Winding Road Records five years ago. Their joint effort on this fine EP, "Love's Like Dancing" is something of a cheery, mood-enhancing treat. A slick vocal number that should suit both disco and house floors, it sounds like classic Blackjoy fused with Lovebirds' usual brand of colourful deep house positivity. Crazy P man Jim Baron dons his now familiar Ron Basejam guise on the remix, delivering a bouncy nu-disco/deep house fusion. Lovebirds goes solo on the woozy, Rhodes-laden deep house haziness of "Feel The Bern", while the accompanying Talkbox Edit adds woozy, robotic vocals into the mix whilst retaining the track's original feel and structure.

Review: Ever since Gerd Janson snapped up his fine Chord Memories EP back in 2014, Shan has enjoyed a productive relationship with Running Back. City Never Sleeps marks the Frankfurt producer's third outing on the hyped house imprint, and boasts a quartet of retro-futurist treats. He doffs a cap to the melodious analogue deep house of the Burrell Brothers and Larry Heard on the delicious title track, before effortlessly emphasizing his own chunky, cymbal-heavy groove on the subtly acid-flecked "Lin FM". "Caiber" sees him sending shivers down the spine via warehouse-friendly piano riifs and boisterous house breakbeats, while closer "691 Beats" is a pulsating, bass-heavy drum workout with added rave riffs.

Review: Dresden native Jacob Korn has clearly decided that quality of preferable to quantity. Since 2014, he's really cut back on the number of EPs he's put out, with this simply titled four-tracker being his first release of ant description for 18 months. Predictably, he barely puts a foot wrong, moving from the chunky grooves, alien melodies, dusty musical touches and pulsing loops of "The Happening", to the low-slung, disco-flecked mid-tempo deep house bump of "Thru The Eye". Along the way, pay close attention to the choppy, post-Soundstream edit-house swing of "Holiday", and the soaring, near-symphonic disco-house heaviness of "Goodbye", which is arguably the EP's most bombastic moment.

Electric Boogaloo (Neon Amish remix) - (6:42) 120 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Spain's Gameboyz are a trio of electro-breakbeat enthusiasts, who are just about the only ones doing it right these days. Coming through for the young Sprechen label, they deliver the excellent "Off The Wall", the sort of tune that Plump DJs would have been playing back in the day, and one that even manages to deliver some fine waves of 303 acid; "Electric Boogaloo" feels like the slower, housier companion that offers something deeper and more cerebral. There's remixes of both: the former is versioned by Italy's Fabrizio Mammarella into a slick tech-house bomb with the same acid licks giving it extra power, whereas the latter sees Neon Amish transform the tune into a spacey piece of prog house. Check it!

Review: Despite hailing from modern day Norway, Lux Experience's heart remains firmly in the USA during the heady days of the 1970s. Nothing wrong with that as nothing really tops the thrill of the original disco explosion during that wild decade. Here he unearths four more long gems from that time and retweaks them for contemporary dancefloors. "Street Disco" is and accelerated proto-hiHRG opener, "Your Luv" begins as classic French Touch-style diva loops before expanding into more stripped backed boogie and "Freak Mouse" is a bass driven chant-along. Lastly "Prance With Me" wraps things up with some seriously elastic party vibes.

Review: Germany's Boris Brejcha is back with the Fear EP on his own Fckng Serious imprint. The title track is a dark journey with a razor sharp bassline, druggy drums and soaring synth leads leading to proper dancefloor bliss of the darker kind. Next offering "Sad But True" gets more fierce and tunnelling with its swelling sub bass, dreamy melody and tight shuffle; perfect to lead into the peak time. Finally "Happiness Lies" keeps on with the po faced aesthetics like its name may suggest but goes out with a big bang; this seething and slow burning prog-house journey is reminiscent of James Holden's work in the mid noughties. Wicked!

Review: Those who pay close attention to the contemporary edit scene should already be aware of Voodoo Whiskey. The Newcastle-based producer has previously released music on a wide number of labels - Undercover Operations, Editorial and Chopshop included - and here pops up on '80s Child's Masterworks Music. He begins with the bumpin', delay-laden disco-house swing of "Blueberry Muffins", before dipping a toe into the world of filter-heavy disco-funk on the pleasingly sweet and punchy "Get Next To You". Elsewhere, be sure to check out the funked-up disco-house roller "Tutti Frutti" (the main sax riff, in particular, is ace), and closer "Kittiwake Kebab", whose combination of hazy instrumentation and shuffling breakbeats is particularly refreshing.

Review: There are no holidays to be had at Punks HQ this year, what with the release of their BBQ Beats comp and a new single from Left/Right +Jacq. Following on from the huge Can't Stop, this new jam, "Lies" will only keep the hype coming. The original is pure cinematic gothic vibes with brooding bass hums and morbid vocals. The remixes are livelier affairs however - Billy Kenny drops the BPMs a tad for his riotously sleazy tech-bass monster of mix. A tough act to follow, but Aloka brings it with a remix full of stark drum and bass-meets-breaks mayhem.

Review: Paris house badman Phil Weeks lands on us like a pile of bricks, thanks to his unsurprisingly effective and tooled-up four-to-the-floor made for maximum dance floor damage and minimal DJ mess-ups. The aptly named "On The Floor" is exactly the sort of grainy tech-house that we've always loved from the man and his Robsoul label - but the sweetest spot is that subtle disco magic that he always manages to infuse into his tracks. "Funk In Your Trunk" is also utterly on-brand and, just as it says on the description, it's a pure tool cut that manage to stay lively and interesting thanks to its rugged funk slapbass, while "Be With You" goes much deeper into the depths of house, and filters in a sublime jazzy touch for extra weight.

Review: To date, Bavarian duo Coeo has released a number of quietly impressive deep house singles on a variety of labels, including Let's Play House, Seven Music and Dabit. Back In The Days sees them return to the Toy Tonics imprint they last graced back in 2014. There's a classic disco-house-meets-contemporary deep house feel to the groovy and attractive title track, while "Jugendstil" adds hazy jazz influences to the same successful formula. The bizarrely titled "+++" throws African vocal and drum samples into the mix, combining them with bold string riffs and unfussy house beats to excellent effect. Finally, bonus track "Humbled" sees the duo return to their filter-sporting best, with the results sounding like a fusion of Soundstream and Tom Trago.

Highlights include Lewis Boardman's sinister and deep "Lose Control", the sunnier uplifting vibes of Dee Montero's "Vedra" and Landmark's sleek and catchy "Lost In The Club".

Review: On 2014's The Roundup, Heist Recordings family members remixed leading label releases from the previous 12 months. It was such a success that Detroit Swindle has decided to repeat the exercise, with similarly positive results. Across the five tracks, you'll find a groovy, clavinet-and-Rhodes heavy loop jam (Brame & Hamo's remix of Fouk's "Lefty's Bar"), some boogie-flavoured, soulful deep house haziness (Fouk reworking Brame & Hamo), a dash of broken deep house funk (Detroit Swindle's take on Nachtbraker's "You're Out Of Your Element"), and a wonderful combination of undulating breakbeat-house rhythms and eyes-closed musical touches (Nactbraker re-wiring M Ono's "Delaware State Route"). In other words, it's business as usual from one of deep house's most consistent labels.

Review: Dirt3000's unstoppable force known as Dirt Crew is back with Berlin local tech house hero Tigerskin, who enlists a bit of help from Grambow on the smooth and melodic deep house of "Looking For Mushrooms (featuring Das Eb)". On "Tsukiji" they go for more of an uplifting house tune complete with swing fuelled rhythm, happy pianos and bumpy bassline that'd make even Kollektiv Turmstrasse stand up and notice! "Octocat" goes for something techier, darker and low-slung; better for the afterhours and finally "Red Fox" goes for more of the hazy and esoteric vibe that'll help you drift like a Crosstown Rebels or All Day I Dream track.

Review: Having previously plied their trade on ManMakeMusic, Christian Piers and Leon Vynehall have been persuaded to bring their Laszlo Dancehall project to Wolf Music. Happily, this first collaborative effort since the tail end of 2013 is every bit as essential as its' three predecessors. They begin with the baggy deep house grooves, stretched-out chords and bustling bass of the hypnotic "Tide In", before adding booming sub-bass and twinkling keys to the jazzy, Andres style swing of "Channel". "Pelagos" is a little bolder percussively, but still revolves around organic, jammed-out keys (not to mention some subtle disco drum samples), while "Tide Out" offers a thrilling, everything-but-the-kitchen sink take on the EP's opening track.

It now gets some remix treatment by an all star cast with Mannheim tech house hero Butch stepping up to deliver a loopy and funked up rendition that will appeal to fans of DJ Sneak or Phil Weeks. The classic "Just Another Groove" from 1995 gets a makeover by Hamburg legend Boris Dlugosch but delivers more of an edit which doesn't deviate too far from the original, while Brit in L.A. Doorly's version is well funky tech house for party people.

Review: Bristol's master practitioner of boompty electro house returns for west coast institution Dirtybird with his rendition of DJ Godfather's 1999 classic "Booty Perculate" feat DJ Funk, but in the process sounds more like Cajmere's seminal "Percolator" with its stomping Chicago hard house groove and wobbly melody. Second offering "House Girl" sounds more like the Clarke we know with its massive bouncy baseline, tight rhythm and buzzing synth leads that fly all over the shop for perfect trippiness beneath druggy pitch shifted vocals. That's what we're talking about right here!

Review: Melbourne-based DJ and producer Prequel returns to the Rhythm Section fold for a second release after getting his debut with the much-loved Polite Strangers 12" back in late 2014. After a few appearances here and there in the interim period, this Freedom Jazz Dance 12" suggests Prequel has really expanded his production parameters with four tracks that add spoken word samples and subtle vocal lines to his stellar instrumental flourishes. Local Melbourne beat poet Cazeaux O.S.L.O. brings his distinct vocal tones and inspirations to lead track "Saints", a fine blunted opener that nods to KDJ classic "Amerika". You can see this one being played for months to come! Following this, Prequel throws down some effervescent jazz house on "Nothing Better" and "Walken" with a deviation into more beatdown territory, "You Shall Know The Truth", wedged inbetween.

Review: Dirt Crew's latest trip into hazy, soft focus deep house territory is an all-UK collaboration between London-based House of Disco regular Harry Wolfman and Manchester's Loz Goddard. They begin with the watery chords, off-kilter samples and eyes-closed grooves of "Uncle Buck", before reaching for the cascading synth solos on the classic New Jersey deep house bump of "Problem Child". You'll find a little more nu-disco influence on the bolder, more heavily electronic bump of "Neck Of The Woods", while the slap-bass boasting "Sundays" is a breezy, sun-flecked treat. If this isn't enough to get the juices flowing, check Brame & Hamo's remix of "Uncle Buck", which brilliantly re-casts the original as a loose chunk of jazz-funk inspired, organic house goodness.

Review: Dutch Veteran Gerd's career stretches back an impressive 22 years. Planet F.D.M.X Pt 1 sees him return to Clone's retro-futurist Royal Oak offshoot for the first time in five years. Interestingly, opener "Planet F.D.M.X (909)" doffs a cap to early Warp "bleep and bass" releases, while also paying tribute to the spacey techno sounds of Detroit. There's a slightly more Larry Heard feel to the accompanying "707" mix of the same track, with deliciously deep chords and bright stabs accompanying a "Can You Feel It" style groove. On the flip, he's in full on space mode on the wonderfully attractive and rubbery "Visitors", while "The Cube" bounces along on a wave of vintage acid style refrains, jackin' beats and dreamy, drawn-out chords.

Review: The story of how this record on Wolf Music came to be is a shining beacon of how the underground works at its finest. Booked to play Dortmund venue Oma Doris last year, the Wolf lads were handed a CD of demos from young resident DJ Mr Fries which had them very impressed. Soon after label and artist shook hands, and now Mr Fries becomes Wolf Music's Dortmund correspondent with this blissful 5 track EP. The young German is a fine fit for the Wolf cause, brandishing a deep take on house that's got just the right amount of dust and plenty of soul in the samples used. We'd wager Mr Fries was signed up on the strength of lead track "Get Together" alone! Money $ex Records alumnus Hodini and long-time Wolf affiliate Garth BE provide extra sweetness on remix duties.

Review: Washington DC breakbeat duo Fort Knox Five presents yet more killer remixes of Pressurize The Cabin, originally released a year and a half ago. Starting out with the Eighteenth Street Lounge affiliated Ursula 1000, who delivers a low slung and funky rendition of "Ready Go" which will rock the dancefloor of any party, there's also a handy instrumental version for serious DJs. Meanwhile Palletz delivers a bass heavy, very UK makeover of "24 Hours To Set It Off" complete with ragga vocals which will storm any serious soundclash. Interestingly enough, this fella is from British Columbia, Canada; who'd have thought! Again, a handy instrumental version is included of this remix too.

Review: Futureboogie's annual Summer Riot EP rarely disappoints. This year's instalment of the multi-artist extravaganza - the fifth in totak - is every bit as essential as its' predecessors. Long time friend of the family Bonar Bradberry steps up first with "Analogue Express", where bubbly synthesizer lead lines rub shoulders with Chicken Lips style bass and rich, life-affirming piano chords. Experienced Italian DJ Rocca fuses brain-melting acid lines, dark electronics and African influences on the wonky "Voodoo", before former Fila Brazillia man Steve Cobby drops a lolloping chunk of audible sunshine in the shape of "Lefthanded Books". Arguably best of all, though, is Field Theory's "Rituals", a swirling fusion of dreamy deep house, mind-altering acid, and warehouse-friendly rhythms.

Review: An Australian based in London, producer Frankee More gives the occasional instalment of frothy party fun. There's no fear of groundbreaking sounds here or deep navel gazing, it's all about cheeky giggles on the dancefloor. Here we have another two such sizzlers to enjoy. First up, "This Feeling" fuses a laid-back electro-funk bassline with an impassioned soul vocal and a sax solo. On the digital flipside lurks "Dance Now", basically an update of C&C Music Factory's Everybody Dance Now that, if played at the right time, will blow the roof off any self-respecting house party. Job done.

Review: Henrik Schwarz's surprise remix of "Ene Nyame Nam 'A' Mensuro' - a suitably obscure collaboration between Ghanian highlife legends Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas, originally released somewhere round the turn of the '80s on a ridiculously rare LP - has arguably been one of the underground dancefloor hits of the summer. A ten-minute chunk of loose and languid, Highlife-deep house fusion, Schwarz has cleverly combined sections of the sweet-as-you-like original with his own atmospheric electronics and tech-house influenced beats. The veteran German producer also provides a dub, which strips out the vocal and allows his electronics, Taylor's delicious guitars and the original's punchy horns a little more room to breathe.

Review: "Chicago" is a pure jacking house tune which features all the hallmarks of the Trax Records sound: the legendary Windy City label which founded the house and acid house legacy. Milanese legend Carmelo Carone fits with the unique sound of TRAX, which is said to have very much influenced over the years his artistic identity. The "UK mix" gets a bit darker and dubbier with those MK style keys atop, which are a great touch. There's also some fine remixes on offer, but for our money it's all about the tough, swing fuelled jack courtesy of the Hologram Hookers which is reminiscent of classic Armand Van Helden or Miky Talarico's slow burning cosmic disco rendition.

Review: In the past Romanian producer Heion (aka Razvan Ghenciu) has dabbled in both disco and house. Here though, he returns from a bit of a break with a new EP, In The Moment, which also introduces a jazzier tone to his sound. The title track kicks things off with laid-back Mediterranean moods - gentle percussion, warm synth washes and jazzy keys tinkling away. Elsewhere "Hot To Trot" ups the tempo and adds shimmering arpeggios into the mix, "Embrace It" meanwhile embraces the live and loose funk bass and finally The Model reworks Hot To Trot into deep trance-tech.

Review: Wolf Music continues to evolve as a label, with recent releases showcasing a much more mature, dustier and quietly soulful feel than some of their earlier outings. Certainly, there was a smoky, jazz-flecked vibe to Medlar's recent 12", and this EP from regular contributor Frits Wentink is suitably fuzzy, glitchy and groovy. Opener "Blaise Montoya" sets the tone, with watery riffs, grainy jazz samples and bluesy vocal samples riding an undulating, US-garage influenced groove. There's a similar, if chunkier, feel to "Hummel", while "Etna Devine" goes further into left-of-centre, jazz-influenced deep house territory. Like the EP's other tracks, it feels a little more inventive and out-there than your average deep house jam.
