Frits Wentink - "Schrewd" (The Organ Grinder remix) - (6:05) 122 BPM
from $1.49
Review: This deluxe expansive EP - originally released on a 12" and 10" package - is the first in what Detroit Swindle promise will be an annual occurrence - a "family remix EP", where members of the Heist Recordings crew rework releases from the previous 12 months. It's a neat idea, and one resulting in some killer material. The Organ Grinder's surging, drum-laden rework of Frits Wentik's "Schrewd" is deliciously heavy, though it's Max Graef's loose, soulful reinterpretation of Detroit Swindle's "The Break Up" that's probably the standout. That said, there's plenty to cheer elsewhere, not least Nachtbraker's cowbell-laden, acid house-meets-nu-disco version of Max Graef and Andy Hart's "Jungle".

Nectarines - (6:31) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Sam Shepherd has long been a master of the kind of ultra-deep, rolling, soft focus deep house that raises the spirits and soothes the soul. Even so, there's something incredibly special about "Nuits Sonores", the lead track from this must-have EP. Based around a deep, tactile groove and blessed with rising synth solos, dancing acid lines and his usual fireside Rhodes antics, the track rises magnificently for 12 spellbinding minutes. As it progresses, further elements make their way into the mix, until it reaches the kind of organic deep house climax that makes even the grumpiest souls go weak at the knees. Flip for "Nectarines", the kind of loose-limbed fusion of deep house sassiness, Detroit techno electronics and fluid jazz drumming at which Shepherd has always excelled.

from $1.49
Review: Given the quality of Session Victim's 2012 debut album, Haunted House of House, expectations are naturally high for this follow-up. Like its predecessor, See You When You Get There takes a widescreen approach to deep house, with the German duo drawing on a myriad of influences, from jazz ("Hey Stranger"), soundtracks ("Crystal Maze") and evocative downtempo beats (the impeccable title track), to Atmosfear-ish jazz-funk ("The Most Beautiful Divorce In The World") and, most notably, classic Balearica (see the druggy pop of "Hyuwee" and deliciously slow "EOS Place". Best of all, though, is "Never Forget", a glorious blues-house epic laden with smoky vocal samples and thrilling piano motifs.

from $1.49
Review: Brand new nu-disco brand from Brazil, Mareh have already established themselves as sonic connoisseurs with their annual festivals, long before this debut release. NYC don Duncan takes the lead with a stately Italo-referencing groover that builds and builds with analogue insistency, twisting, turning and evolving throughout. Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco follow on a much funkier flex. A nagging synth hook, loopy guitars and a pertinent sense of disco insistency are all tied together with a bold swing and plenty of party panache. Mareh mercy!

from $1.49
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.

Review: No 27 in the Wolf Music discography sees the Lupine London label look to the Lowlands (try saying that five times in a row) and introduce their network to the talents of Dutch duo Homework. As Homework, Amsterdam-based Tom Waist and Zip Stolk have racked up a clutch of releases for Shir Khan's Exploited label over the past four years and their brand of classicist Chicago house is most definitely high grade Wolf material. It's hard to describe the three Homework cuts here as anything other than luscious with "Time & Time" a definite highlight thanks to the vocal sample flip. Includes a rather dusty remix from Wolf Music regular Greymatter.

Jamie Trench - "That Groovy Thing" - (6:12) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
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.

Review: Baaz has been quietly building up an impressive discography since 2007, delivering quality deep house on labels such as Elevate, Quintessentials and Slices of Life. Here he returns to his Office Recordings imprint with his most ambitious release yet - a long-promised debut album. While there's plenty of spacey, dancefloor-focused club tracks - see "Closed", "Endori", the becalmed "Anyway" and pleasingly picturesque "Glass Voice" - the Berlin-based producer also takes the opportunity to showcase a previously undisclosed love of downtempo beats. So, we get the Motor City electronics and glitchy beats of "Spacehub", the ambient hip-hop of "Pressyn", and the beautiful, beatless electronica of opener "Everyone". The result is a rich, evocative album with its head in the clouds, and its feet on the floor.

Review: Zinc is obviously a legendary D&B producer and DJ, but he's recently been delving into a bit of house music. However, far from the majority of house released today, his particular brand is considerably bass-laden and shuffled when it comes to the percussion! Six new belters here to follow up from his last Structures release, and you get everything from quasi garage on tracks like "Backup", to break-ridden grooves such as "Vampires", and even a dash of tech house on "Wonderful". Ace and diverse, Zinc is still teaching how its done 20 years from his first releases.

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.

Review: Delusions of Grandeur present a second selection of tracks from Session Victim's superb sophomore set See You When You Get There, the German duo's acclaimed follow-up to 2012 debut The Haunted House of House. Predictably, there's much to admire, from the jazz keys and skewed deep house swing of opener "Do It Now", to the rubbery disco bass, smoky atmospherics and Moodymann style, jazz-flecked grooves of "Make People Dance". There's also a hip-hop tempo excursion in the form of the heady title track, and - best of all - a deep, bluesy disco-house jam in the shape of the brilliant "Hey Stranger".

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.

"Ordinary People" is a classic Q floor-filler packed with an artillery of swinging hi-hats and claps - and some lovely female vocals, of course - but you also get a 2-step mix of the same track for some extra groove flex in the groove.

Review: Phantasy Sound serve up another pair of remixes from Daniel Avery's world-beating Drone Logic LP, and this time they've turned to Roman Flugel and Ricardo Tobar to deliver the goods. Flugel takes on "All I Need" and rustles up a startling peak time burner full of earworm synth shimmers that show the German producer in his most club-ready mode, while keeping a healthy dose of the low-key moody tones of his own recent output humming away in the calmer moments. Ricardo Tobar meanwhile takes "These Nights Never End" into a leftfield headspace full of fractious rhythms, heavy layers of melody and noise, and an all-round rousing atmosphere.

Cosmic Ride EP by Daso on Dikso Cue Track
Ride Tide (original mix) - (6:56) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Apparently, deep house producer Daso - famed for his outings on Connaisseur Recordings and Still Von Talent - has been looking for an outlet to release the disco side of his work for some time. Here, he finally gets that chance with an EP of shimmering, melodious nu-disco chuggers on Dikso. Opener "Tide Waves" is particularly beautiful, with smothering strings, twinkling keys and bubbling electronics riding a sun-kissed Balearic disco groove. "Cosmic Alone" doffs a cap to Italo whislt retaining Daso's deft nu-disco touch, while standout "Ride Tide" is a Scandolearic disco gem with definite hints of Diskjokke, Blakbelt Andersen and Magnus International. Best of all, though, is Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe's voluptuous synth-house rework of "Tide Waves".

Review: Those who've been paying attention to JD Twitch's sets over the last 12 months will undoubtedly have heard "Un.sub", the title track from this excellent EP from former Moda Black combo Mia Dora. A wild combination of relentless cowbells, bass-heavy bottom-end and warped electronics, it sounds like techno from another dimension. The rest of the EP is similarly impressive, from the bumpin' late night house flex of "Raw Kiss", to the surging techno of "Et Le Mein". The EP also features a woozy, off-kilter collaboration with Glaswegian veteran MASH ("Feathers"), which laces a kooky spoken female vocal over sparse beats, foreboding bass and atmospheric electronics.

Review: It's the onset of a brave new era for Ostgut Ton as Panorama Bar 06 signals the label's decision to halt the manufacturing of CDs for their much loved series of mixes. Due for free download via the Ostgut site on August 11, the Berlin operation have not forgone the vinyl format with all the exclusives gathered by mix curator Ryan Elliott pressed up across a pair of 12" samplers. And boy did Elliott call in the favours with this first sampler featuring new and unreleased music from Neworldaquarium, Roman Flugel, Terrence Dixon, Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity. It is an overall exquisite selection, running from the ambience of NWAQ's contribution to Flugel's big room stomper and the sweeter, more playful sounds of Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity.

Review: Looking back it's been a killer year for DJ Haus and his pair of labels, Unknown to the Unknown and Hot Haus, and it seems like he won't be easing the gears down from "unfcknrelenting" now December has arrived. The latest Hot Haus release (the sixth issued since September!) sees a welcome return for whippersnapper producer Palace whose Vision is the third release issued on the UTTU offshoot in a year! If you liked previous Palace releases you'll love the three tracks here, which are all raw and effective DJ tools sprinkled with immediacy, individuality and nagging basslines - "Solstice" in particular is a real burner of a track.

Review: Undoubtedly the most popular artist on the ever increasing Ninja Tune roster, it's always great to see some new material from the studio of Si 'Bonobo' Green, especially as he's spent the best part of two years touring his fifth studio LP. "Flashlight" is sadly not a cover of the Funkadelic classic of the same name, but it does demonstrate Bonobo at the top of his powers, weaving together an intoxicating melange of garage-brushed rhythms, ocean deep basslines, cooing vocals and compulsive textures. It's complemented by two tracks that draw Bonobo closer to the dancefloor; the playful, broken rhythms of "Pelican" contend for top spot with "Return To Air" which has a touch of the Jamie xxs to it.

Review: Martyn's 3024 label returns with an extensive collection of works from rising UK house man Leon Vynehall. Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label back in 2012 with the Mauve EP, Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers, releasing subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus as well as collaborating with blog house survivor A1 Bassline under the Laszlo Dancehall alias. Having debuted on 3024 with last year's Open platter, Vynehall is back with Music For The Uninvited, a seven-track collection of tracks supposedly inspired by rides to school in his mother's car as a child in which he would listen to "mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers". Whilst there is plenty of the individual house sound Vynehall has developed on offer here ("It's Just (House Of Dupree)" is a certified jam) there are also more tranquil moments to bask in such as "Inside The Deku Tree" and "St Sinclair" which bookend this excellent release.

Review: Here's a surprise Christmas present from Jennifer Cardini's Correspondant label - an expansive "best of" compilation featuring gems from the imprint's first four years. Like the label itself, the Correspndant Xmas Compilation is pleasingly varied, touching on a hatful of styles and tempos. So, we get the midtempo, disco and new wave influenced chug of Squarewave and the Mansisters, the wonky house swing of Rebolledo's classic remix of Red Axes, the revivalist Italo vibe of Nhar (the excellent "Thelema"), a dash of acid (Manpower, Careno Is LB remixing Javi Redondo) and some twisted, late night Scandolearic disco from Andre Bratten. Oh, and a great fusion of techno and post-punk attitude from Alex Smoke, whose remix of "Polina" by Agents of Time is superb.

Review: Faze Action's Body of One album, released earlier this year, was something of an overlooked gem; a beautifully produced set that joined the dots between the Lee brothers' many influences, whilst retaining a sophisticated pop sensibility. "Time By Your Side", a retro-futurist house gem featuring the great vocals of Mary Moore, was undoubtedly one of the highlights. Here, that track gets remixed no less than five times. Pete Herbert delivers excellent vocal and dub versions with his usual delay-laden, synth-heavy nu-disco feel, while Andromeda Orchestra turns it into a warm, organic disco gem (complete with new beats, guitars and bass). Elsewhere, there are tasty deep house reworks from Rudy's Midnight Machine and Sahin Mayer.

Review: Could German producer Alex Niggemann have a big hit on his hands? "Sorrow" sees him fuse pulsating basslines and beautiful, ethereal melodies with a mournful male vocal from Bon Homme of Whomadewho fame. It's the kind of teary performance reminiscent of the opening music for Danish crime drama The Bridge. Deetron and Marco Resmann are tasked with giving the track some extra dance floor clout. Resmann's take ups the dramatic quota, with the chords blustering and sweeping away over a nagging groove, while Deetron's version gives the original extra power thanks to its heavy, tribal drums and muscular bassline.

from $1.49
Review: Richard Grey has some history in house music, having played a part in developing the "French touch" style in the latter half of the 1990s. He's been active ever since (often under a dizzying array of aliases), though Positive Vibes is his first EP under his most famous pseudonym for almost 18 months. The track itself is something of a big room banger - a chunk of UK garage-influenced rave revivalism full of hands-in-the-air stabs, sub-bothering bass and ragga vocal samples. It comes backed with a strong remix package, from the bumpin', bass-driven thump of Rare Candy's speed garage-inspired take (think Armand Van Helden's Dark Garage Mix of 'Spin Spin Sugar'), to the bubbly, organ-laden two-step rework from ASMR and Lamont Dex.

Review: A lesson in the full house spectrum from the super versatile Doc Daneeka, every shade and style of 4/4 floor science is explored across this four-track EP. Those looking for undiluted uplift should jump on the aptly titled "Together", those in need of a laser-snapping tech frenzy need to sign up to the spikey sermons of "Ghosttext" while those keen on deeper lucid dark soul need to pay attention to the two Seven Davis Jr collaborations. "What's It Gonna Be?" is straight out of the early '90s Strictly handbook while the kick drum-free "I Promise" is straight up street soul with heaps of potential for mix creativity.

Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a digital-only roundup of some of the best 2014 releases from Amsterdam heavyweights Rush Hour, and their associated labels. As you'd expect, there's a mix of fresh material, reissues (see Push/Pull's ace "Bang The Drums" and "Africa", and the sinewy deep house of Vincent Floyd's 1990 gem "Your Eyes") and lesser-known album tracks (the undulating jazz-house brilliance of Awanto3's "Bubbles Made Me Cry"). It makes for a great listen, of course, with plenty of top-notch dancefloor moments for DJs willing to mix it up. Contrast, for example, the Detroit electro of DJ Stingray's "Temporary Bond", the picturesque, sub-aquatic techno of Population One, and the glitchy, midtempo warmth of Joris Voorn's "The Recipe".

Review: The fourth and final EP to mark the fifteenth anniversary of Poker Flat sees its participants reinventing the past while looking to the future. Trentemoller's "Always Something Better" was one of the Danish producer's breakthrough tracks and here it is turned into a fittingly deep and reflective groove by DJ Tennis and Mind Against. On a more general level, Chardronnet vs Afrilounge's "Shake It" from 2005 was one of the key records in the trance/minimal house crossover. Here, new school producer turns it into a tough, pumping groove that doesn't sacrifice the original version's shimmering, spine-tingling hooks. This series isn't solely focused on old tracks and John Tejada & Justin Maxwell and Kindimmer deliver stripped back, bleep-heavy grooves and deep techno respectively.

from $1.49
Review: Here's a devilishly simple but nevertheless inspired idea from Yam Who's ISM label: a 21st-centrury update of Imagination's legendary 1983 remix album Night Dubbing. While this version is nowhere near as dub-influenced as the original (which, after all, contained contributions from Larry Levan), it does contain some rather sublime new interpretations of Imagination's greatest hits. Highlights include an epic version of "Just An Illusion" from John Morales, an anthem-like version of "Flashback" from Kon, a deliciously atmospheric reinterpretation of "Music & Lights" from Sleazy McQueen and a typically deep, warm and synth-heavy re-shape of "Burning Up" from Soul Clap. Best of all, though, is J Kriv's nu jack swing-influenced remix of "Body Talk", which simply oozes the authentic feel of late '80s electro.

Review: Sounding like a killer death move in an '80s 8-bit wrestling game, Dragon Suplex immediately fits right in with the Mullet aesthetic, even before we've heard the music. Speaking of which we get four retro tinged jams, just the way label boss Casio Social Club likes it. Highlights include the smooth but tough electro-house groover, "Something Something", the Shannon-esque "Playing With Me" and the vapour trail synth-washed "Proud".

from $1.49
Played by: Alkalino
Review: It's been nearly 20 months since Raphael Ripperton last donned the Headless Ghost guise for Clone's Royal Oak offshoot. While that release, the Frontend EP, was an exploration of hissing analogue deep house peppered with sly acid house references, Swept Illusions is an altogether more polished proposition. That's not meant as a criticism; if anything, the fizzing, Latin-influenced rhythms, twinkling electronics and sun-soaked pianos that dominate "Swept Illusions" are far more memorable. The remixes come from Genius of Time under their solo aliases. Dorisburg's 808 Dance Mix is a thrilling amalgamation of dense, tribal-influenced percussion, tough 808 drums and occasional foreboding electronic stabs. Arkajo takes a different approach, layering Balearic-friendly fiddles, pads and melodies atop a shuffling, low-slung groove.

Review: Ovum's 20th anniversary has been heralded by this very special collection of remixes. Taking on the 1998 classic, techno superstars from across the globe have taken to their artfully darkened studios to create their own version of events, making ten new insights in total. From German techno powerhouse Ben Klock's frighteningly impeccable take to Harry Romero's rather more dancefloor-driven affair; Size 9's minimal injection progresses into an addictive bass loop and My Friend wraps things up with an abstract lesson in sound design, cutting sharp textures and flaccid bass tones to create something totally alien. A must buy.

Born Again - (5:46) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: By his impeccable standards, Michael Baumann has had a pretty quiet year, with EPs on Musik Krause and Circus Company his only releases of note. Here, he finishes the year in style, returning to the Philpot label he co-founded with another impressive pair of tunes. While the heady deep house warmth of "Obsidian Fields" is nominally the lead cut - think soul-flecked Rhodes chords, sun-flecked guitars and unfussy grooves - virtual flipside "Born Again" is arguably a stronger proposition. While it, too, features some typically tactile electric piano motifs, it's built around the kind of raw, distorted, broken techno rhythm he does so well. The track manages to simultaneously be tough and dreamy - a particularly attractive proposition.

Review: "Mind Biscuit": Something tasty for your brain to chew on while your feet mulch up the dancefloor. Auckland crew Monkey Boots lay down two jack-slapping originals that dig deep into the true deep house psyche. "Impossible Need" comes with smoky vocal and smouldering bass vibes on the groove while "Yearning For You" slaps with a lighter sensation, all wafty minor key organs and soul-stirring vocals. Remix-wise Reed & Radley subvert "Yearning For You" with a little more space and reverbed magic while The Phantom Flan Flinger gets all reflective and shimmering on the Balearic bomb "Lullaby For Spiderman". Beautiful.
