Review: Munich-based Alkalino (aka Lino Rodrigues) has been delivering top notch re-edits for years now, so there's no chance of him quitting, despite the title of his new series. We've seen the list of his upcoming releases, and these are certainly not his Last Edits. There are quite a few newbies on here, eight to be precise so there's a lot to choose from. Our favourites happen to be the dreamily seductive disco throb of "Body & Soul", the austere mechanics of New Order redux, "How Do I Feel" and the low slung driving space disco of "We Got It".

from $2.17
Review: The first compilation on Koze's Pampa label is a lovingly curated affair. It starts with the left field house of Herbert's take on Lianne La Havas and Ada's r&b-infused "You & Me", as well as DJ Koze's own hymnal take on Roman Flugel's "9 Years". Other Pampa regulars like Axel Boman are well represented and he provides the ultra-mellow "In The Dust of This Planet". Equally though, Koze also provides a platform for newcomers to the fold. There's the utterly bizarre, glitch-hop of Nasrawi and Funskstorung's contributions, and at the other end of the spectrum, wide-eyed deep house from Mount Kimbie and Jamie xx & Kosi Kos' pumping indie-dance "Come We Go".

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: Harry Agius aka Midland is back: does he ever find time to sleep? Following up the Akase side project he's involved in with Robbie Redway and some killer releases on Aus Music, Feel My Bicep and of course his own Graded imprint which this appears on; making it the label's third release already. "Blush" is a slow burning and emotive piece with an epic vintage synth arpeggio and soulful strings backed by the most restrained beat. "Outpost" gets a bit more fierce with a tougher beat and a free running arpeggio that reeks havoc much like Carl Craig's classic remix of "Falling Up". Finally "Holdup" hammers the message home gloriously with its off kilter yet hypnotic beat and sombre yet emotive atmosphere.

Tell You No Lie - (8:33) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.17
Review: A taster for Robert Hood's second Floorplan album, this EP puts a spotlight on the radical nature of his musical transformation. On "Music", the visceral rhythms of techno minimalism are gone; in their place is a rolling, tracky groove that boasts a repetitive vocal loop and which has shades of classic Relief /Derrick Carter. "Tell You No Lie" is even more impressive. It sees Hood use a gospel vocal over a stomping, funk guitar-sampling disco house workout. There is an audibly religious dimension to "Tell You No Lie," but Hood's knack for writing a great tune means that it sounds celebratory rather than self-indulgent or preachy.

Destined - (7:24) 120 BPM
from $2.17
Review: Daniel Berman has decided to re-launch his Bergerac imprint, following an extended hiatus. Clearly, the Berlin-based producer wanted something big to kick things off again, and his own "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger" is certainly sizeable. Fundamentally a cheery, cut-up disco-house record, it's lifted into potential anthem territory by some choice siren sounds and a series of Syclops-like synth doodles. It's certainly his strongest material for some time, and will be everywhere over coming months. The bonus tracks are pretty darn tasty, too; "Jazzy House Extension" does exactly what it says on the tin - with extra jazz madness - while "Destined" is just plain odd. Strange as it is, it's also rather good.

from $2.17
Review: Having contributed a stellar track to Gerd Janson's Musik For Autobahns 2 compilation, it's little surprise to see Leon Vynehall pop up on Running Back. Rojus (Designed To Dance) is an expansive eight trackaffair thati s likely to be as popular as 2014's Music For The Uninvited LP for Martyn's 3024 label. It's also predictably varied; contrast, for example, the drowsy ambient chords and twinkling electronics of opener "Beyond This", and the deep-jack-goes-rave sweatiness of "Beau Sovereign". Vynehall also finds space for the Balearic jazz-house swing of "Paradisea", the wall-of-sound Detroit deep house of "Blush", and the African influenced drum workout "...There Is You". In other words, it's a versatile cracker.

Review: It would be fair to say that Detroit Swindle has been on a great run of form, with last year's The Punch Drunk EP amongst their strongest work to date. This first missive of 2016 is equally as strong, offering four chunks of heavy dancefloor ammunition. "More Everything Please" sees them pepper a chunky house groove with restless disco cowbells and rolling, off-kilter organ riffs, while "Future Imperfect" sounds like their take on humid, tropical-influenced deep house. Elsewhere, there's a comforting warmth and hazy funk about woozy deep house stomper "Howsmusic", and the disco-sampling "In Reverse" sits somewhere between a locked-in disco-house thumper, and the looser, more soulful work of Detroit's Andras.

Review: LOFT's latest release is an all-star affair, with a quartet of hyped artists taking it in turns to remix tracks from Berlin-based Aussie Isaac Tichauer's recent Street Lessons EP. Belfast boys Bicep step up first, delivering a mix that blends winding synthesizer lines with rolling, early '90s style breakbeat house grooves. Hackman's version of "Street Lessons" is a cheery, UKG-meets-deep house affair full of skipping beats and twinkling pianos, before Dorsia serves up a tasty vocal version of the same track smothered in psychedelic electronics and pretty synth melodies. Finally, Lancelot manages to deliver a drowsy tech-house-meets-boisterous garage interpretation of "Street Lessons" that should go down well with younger crowds.

from $2.17
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.

Safe - (6:55) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
Multiply - (7:56) 129 BPM
from $2.17
Review: Random contact through Soundcloud saw Phantasy owner Erol Alkan sign Ghost Culture and now, seven EPs and one album later, this almost accidental hook-up has paid off in spades. "Safe" is a fine modern techno track; a dark, moody bass lashes and flashes like a live power line, while industrial strength acid ploughs its way over Ghost Culture's pumping groove. On the flip side, "Multiply" represents a different side to his sound. It is deeper and more melodic; tranced out chords and melodic hooks of almost crystal fragility play out over a warbling bass and dry percussive ticks. Both tracks consolidate Ghost Culture's reputation as a fine modern day techno artist.

Review: Situationism is run by a mysterious 'collective of DJs and producers from the five valleys'. Although little is revealed about their identities, we do know that this compilation is their biggest release yet and it boasts the mighty "On It" by Peza. The track's clever fusion of a boogie sample (Starguard's High On The Boogie) and some subtle 303 work has got people talking and dancing already. The quality stays high over the remaining tracks too, highlights including George Kelly's melancholic Italo gem, "Trip to Jupiter", Vampire Disco's moody synth prowler "Orbit" and the chilled cocktail grooves of Alkalino's "Trigger".

Review: Bay Area house hero and Dirtybird co-founder Justin Martin is back following up 2013's Ghettos & Gardens with his new full length LP Hello Clouds, a collection of fine moods and grooves that see him collaborate with some of his favourite artists at the moment. He's quoted as saying "I reached out to specific artists who currently inspire me". Highlights include the title track where he collaborates with London pop chanteuse FEMME on this low slung acid groove. More great talents from London appear such as Lena Cullen, lending her fine vocals to the dark futurism of "Odyssey" and Bristolian rising star and fellow Dirtybird alumni Will Clarke appears too, lending his midas touch to "Back To The Jungle" which is bumpy and as bass driven as you could possibly imagine. The Amen break on top is totally killer too.

Review: Hamburg's Diynamic are back with some pretty fierce tracks on Four To The Floor 06, quite a departure from the label's usual deep house sound. Pig&Dan's "Growler" is a storming peak time techno weapon with a furious beat, slamming synth stabs and a big drop: all you need really. Israeli progressive house hero Guy Mantzur appears too with "Trees Of Eden" which goes more for the Life & Death style moody and melodic journey track style. Brazil's ANNA serves up a driving, tunnelling and restrained groove on cruise control with "Odd Concept" while Jonas Rathsman serves up one of the most epic arpeggiations of the year on his monster "Cobalt".

Review: Alexander Berg has been a busy boy of late. Hot on the heels of his druggy, voodoo-inspired "Time Stretch Totem" 12" comes this expansive album for the consistently impressive Hivern Discs stable. In keeping with both his work and that of the label he's starring on, Irrbloss is hard to place, featuring as it does atmospheric, out-there explorations that variously touch on experimental deep house, IDM, ambient, crystalline techno and throbbing late night wonkiness. Despite the eclecticism, it all makes perfect sense, and comes cloaked in an air of feverish confusion that's never less than beguiling. We shouldn't have expected anything less.

from $2.17
Review: It's been some three years since Jeremy Duffy's last outing under the Duff Disco alias. This, then, is a welcome return to action. His first EP for Home Taping Is Killing Music is full of atmospheric, analogue-sounding deep house cuts that sound tailor made for pitch-black basements and similarly sweaty, late night dancefloors. He begins with the ragged bass wobble, disco-influenced percussion and metallic melodies of "Feed The Horse", before exploring sturdier tech-house-meets-deep-house territory on the marginally more up-tempo "The Heat". Best of all, though, is closer "You & Nothing Else", which boats a killer analogue bassline and some seriously drowsy chords.

Review: Ali "Nebraska" Gibbs last outing on Mister Saturday Night, 2015's Stand Your Ground, saw the producer treating listeners to a quartet of tracks that touched on a multitude of house styles. This follow-up has a similar feel. He begins with the loose-but-bold drums, electric piano solos, disco strings and occasional punchy horns of "Done My Best", before dropping down into slower, deeper, dub-tinged territory via the toasty electric bass, stretched-out chords, mid-tempo grooves and pitched-down horns of "Look What You've Done To Me". He rounds off another fine outing with "S.O.S Dub", a crackling, unfeasibly atmospheric journey through dub house grooves, fluttering chords and creepy electronics.

from $2.17
Review: Peggy Gou has had a busy debut year thanks to her opener on Phonica's white offshoot, and now two EP's out on Rekids in quick succession. Her sound is a subtle, minimalistic blend of house and techno, exactly the sort of tech-minded groovers that have appeared on Radio Slave's label in the past. "Jen High", for instance, takes a dusty being of drums and wraps them around delicate blends of chimes, whereas "When Round, They Go" heads deeper into space with the help of a sublimely cosmic swarm of sonics. The special piece comes from Terekke's remix of the latter, and the LIES man adds his signature touch to an already very deep house tune, making his version that one toke over the line!

Review: NYC's Manik made a big splash when he appeared on the scene fives years ago with releases on Culprit, Poker Flat and Ovum. He's managed to keep up with the game and still bringing the goods since his relocation to new hotspot Los Angeles. Teaming up with local chanteuse Cari Golden (of Narcotourist who has also lent her talents to the likes of DJ T and Fur Coat) he serves us with "Recourse" a smooth and slinky tech house groove that's made for sexy dancefloor moments and sure make the walls sweat too. Ode to his new hometown "Los Angeles" is a bit darker though with those emotive pads and rusty, dirty rhythm patterns: unlike its namesake it has a distinct Detroit vibe to it though ,which is great anyway!

Review: It's become something of a cliche to point out Rayko's restless productivity, but it's nevertheless true that the Spanish producer does release rather a lot of material. To be fair to the Madrid man, this four-tracker for Midnight Riot is one of his stronger efforts. He begins with the life-affirming pianos and gospel vocals of "Hallelujah", before providing a sun-kissed re-dub of Fleetwood Mac's Balearic classic "Big Love" (here re-titled "Alone"). "That Sound" delivers an attractive blend of wiggly boogie synths, sharp riffs and fuzzy rock guitars, while "Get Loose" is a mostly instrumental re-recording of the Aleems' breakdance era electrofunk classic of the same name.

Review: Dirt Crew Recordings have long been fans of The Revenge's Roar Groove imprint, so asked the Glasgow-based producer if he fancied putting together this collaborative release. He begins in full-on anthem mode, delivering an Italo disco-Chicago house hybrid that pulses, throbs and wobbles in all the right places. "Do The Right Thing" sees The Revenge exploring the loopy middle ground between shuffling deep house, bubbly disco and loved-up Balearica, while "New Attitude" is deep, sparkling and acid-flecked. Dirt Crew regular Nachtbraker provides two remixes; a wild, bass-heavy tweak of "Do The Right Thing", and an impeccable deep house revision of opener "Conkers".

While the Polish duo has called on some big-name pals - Claude VonStroke, Fred Everything and Jamie Jones, for starters - they've also recruited some more left-of-centre talents, including Psychmagik and Polish contemporaries P'taki. The variety and depth of talent shines through from the start, with Fulton's synth-boogie interpretation of "Good Touch" making way for a lusciously deep and electronic mix of "Nobody Cares" by Karizma. Elsewhere, highlights include a rubbery tech-house take on "The Joy" from Anja Schneider, some sweaty, late night business from Eats Everything and Skudge, and Matthew Herbert's thrillingly wonky, Isolee style revision of "Good Touch".

Review: Sexy Parisian deep house: what more can we say? D.KO are the right crew for the job, as we'll explain. Local lad Flabaire has appeared previously on Serie Limitee and Organic Music. "Biblife" is sombre and soulful deep house reminiscent of the emotive style of legends like Pepe Braddock or Schmoove. Paso Music head honcho: Paso, also appears here with the deep and sultry groove of "I Never" which is perfect for the early evening or afterhours alike. Petr Serkin gives the track a pretty decent remix treatment too, retaining the deep funky groove but with some help from some dreamy pads and cowbells which work a treat. Ma Rey's "Quartier Sex" is definitely the fiercest offering on here; tough and thumping peak time house reminiscent of Phil Weeks.

Review: London young guns Wolf Music are still at it, pursuing their love of new wave deep house sounds and they're still doing good, we must say. They've drafted current scene favourite Frits Wentik with a little help from fellow Dutchman Loes Jongerling for Rarely Pure Never Simple (Club Edits). First up is "Nevertheless" which is Berlin style dusty/hip-hop inspired deepness in the vein of Glenn Astro and Max Graef. The vibe continues on "In Addition (Club Edit)" which adds a bit of emotive and soulful synth work reminiscent of classic Larry Heard into the mix. Finally the title track gets all reduced and dubby on us, galloping away in subterranean and mysterious fashion but those Rhodes keys and sexy vocal loop on top are a worthy addition.

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: Freiburg's Borrowed Identity has been one of the busiest producers of 2015, and arguably also one of the most consistent. This 12" for Let's Play House offshoot LPH White marks his fifth (and presumably final) EP of the year, and contains six bumpin', no-nonsense house workouts to entertain festive floors. He begins by joining forces with regular collaborator Mechanical Soul Brother on the low-slung, Junior Vasquez-influenced late night bump of "Vogue", before smothering a thickset groove with rich Rhodes chords and bluesy vocal samples on "Feelings For You". Other highlights include the stompin', piano-heavy goodness of "Tell Me Why", the thumping late night techno of "Red Acid Clouds", and the locked-in, late night basement throb of "Into The Blue".

Review: When it comes to delivering retro-futurist analogue house jams, few can touch Phillip Lauer and Gerd Janson's Tuff City Kids outfit. Underground House Research Vol 2 is stuffed with the stuff, and should send shivers down the spine of all DJs of a certain vintage. "Potion No. 4" and "TRUTHS" both tip a wink to early Chicago house, and include various sly audio references to early TRAX bombs from Virgo Four, Jamie Principle and Larry Heard. They move closer towards Italian piano house - whilst retaining a core Chicago shuffle - on the hands-in-the-air stomp of "RUTHS", while "Carden Eden" fuses a variety of rave-era house influences with predictable success.

Review: Gerd Janson's Running back taps into some local talent courtesy of Stuttgart DJ / producer Konstantin Sibold. The title track is a classic slice of German techno; it has shades of early Force Inc thanks to its tranced out chords and pace - cruising along just below 130bpm for its ten-minute duration - and the raw energy of Tresor in the shape of its gnarly acid line. The musical elements sound much more pronounced on the beatless version, with the chords assuming a slightly menacing edge. However, this is really all about the original version, a tripped out, hypnotic that digs deep into the German electronic music psyche.

It is, somewhat remarkably, the legendary Detroiter's first commercially available mix set. This triple-vinyl edition features a whopping 19 cuts - all in unmixed form - from the 30 track mix. Musically, it's a blazed, jazzy, soulful and groovy as you'd expect, and contains a mixture of downtempo beats, nu-jazz and hazy house cuts from the likes of Flying Lotus, Dopehead, Peter Digital Orchestra, Nightmares On Wax, Soulful Session and Lady Alma.

Review: It would be fair to say that Mr Fingers 2016 is something of an event release, at least for those who love deep house. While Larry Heard has kept busy - largely with remixes and reissues - this marks the first 12" release under his most famous moniker for over a decade. He begins in contemplative mood, fusing tumbling music box melodies, creepy electronics and nagging 303 lines on "Outar Acid", before laying down some typically blissful, atmospheric deep house on the wondrous "Qwazars". Flip for "Nodyahead", an effortless mixture of heavy dub-house bottom end, African-influenced percussion and moody late night refrains, and the ultra-deep, piano-laden bliss of "Aether".

Bulgarian hardware maverick delivers the goods always on his funky, fierce and soulful rendition of "Techno Disco", it's quite brilliant actually. Finally the now legendary Rene Pavlowitz dons the Head High alter ego for a slamming warehouse rave makeover of "Come On Kerrier".

Review: To celebrate hitting half a century of releases, Delusions of Grandeur has decided to release a couple of split EPs, featuring contributions from label regulars and invited guests. This first part starts in strong fashion, with recent signing Nebraska delivering a loose, evocative chunk of saucer-eyed, late night deep house full of fuzzy analogue bass, sparse drum machine rhythms and spine-tingling synthesizer arpeggios. Ugly Drums supply some jazzier deep house fare in the shape of "Like Its OK", before Session Victim finish things off in fine style with "Came To Be Alive". While slightly chunkier and denser than its' predecessors, the track bristles with sun-kissed warmth thanks to lazy electric pianos, killer vocal samples and subtle, beachside sound effects.

Review: Now very much a global concern, Dekmantel still remain strong to their local Amsterdam roots as evidenced on this new 12" from Awanto 3. Steven Van Hulle is arguably one of Dutch electronic music's unsung heroes, with a long history of production work dating back to time in Rednose Distrikt alongside Aardvarck and Kid Sublime. Van Hulle's been working as Awanto 3 for the past six years, racking up music for Rush Hour and Dekmantel. Fans of his work will recognise the 13 minute deep burning stomper "Pregnant", which originally featured as part of Dekmantel's 5 year anniversary compilation series. They've wisely revisited the track, giving it centre space on the A-side of this 12" with a fresh Awanto 3 cut, "Star Butchers", housed on the flip. Don't skip over the closing Daring Edit of "Star Butchers" either, it's a thing of beauty.

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: Originally from South Korea but moving to London at the age of 14 where she spent her formative years, Peggy Gou has since moved to Berlin (of course!) where she's since made her break releasing two EPs in less than a year on Matt Edwards esteemed Rekids imprint. Her new one on Phonica white sees her explore classic deep house aesthetics convincingly such as on the dusty MPC bashing Moodymann style deepness of "Day Without Yesterday" with its deep funk bass, emotive strings and woozy sample all working in perfect harmony. But "Six O Six" gets a craving for the acid life with some gnarly 303 lines going head to head with hands in the air vocals and rusty drum machine grooves.

Review: Earlier this year Yam Who's Midnight Riot profiled the birth of Chicago House in their own distinct way, with a compilation of edits, reworks and homages of classics from the raft of artists associated with the label. Chicago is back on the agenda here, specifically the iconic Hot Mix 5 DJ crew consisting of Mickey 'Mixin' Oliver, Farley 'Jackmaster Funk', Ralphi 'Rockin' Rosario, Kenny 'Jammin' Jason and Scott 'Smokin' Silz and their associated label. This 19-track collection features Chi town pearlers from Larry Heard, Ralph Rosario, DJ Pierre and more given the Midnight Riot treatment with all the usual suspects involved.

Review: Motor City Drum Ensemble man Danilo Plessow believes that this split 12", first released on Manchester's Rainy City Music 20 years ago, is one of the finest deep house records ever to emerge from the UK (he's not alone, either - Theo Parrish and Jeremy Underground are also fans). For this official reissue, all three tracks have been re-mastered from the original DAT tapes. City People's ten-minute "It's All In The Groove", where delay-laden percussion hits and sparkling, Si Brad style synth flashes ride a deliciously deep, disco-house groove, kicks things off in fine style. The other two tracks are solo efforts from City People man Irfan Hussain; both "A Lil Tribute To The Moody Black Keys" and "Jus' Nite Groovin" sound like classic Chez Damier productions.

Review: Bad boy bass man Phrixus is back with mighty fury on Sounds Of Sumo, and he's open for business as usual, rolling out the punches and the low-frequency weight. This seven-tracker has everything you'd possibly want from a UK bass release, with the majority of the tunes dipping and diving in and out of pseudo grime sways, peaks of house and even a little wobble step in the low-end. Remixes come from Kiri, Croft and Fritz Carlton.

Review: It can be hard to predict what Fort Romeau will do next. While he's always excelled at making evocative, melancholic blends of vintage deep house, instrumental synth-pop and glistening electronica, he's prone to frequent stylistic shifts, as his eccentric 2015 outings on Cin Cin and Running Back neatly demonstrated. For this EP on Live At Robert Johnson, he's back to his deep and emotion-rich best, laying down a trio of tracks that emphasise mood, melody and simple beauty over the demands of the dancefloor. "Facing The Sea" is the most obvious club-friendly of the three - think chugging, hissing rhythms, winding melodies and Behaviour-era Pet Shop Boys chords - though it's the intensely beautiful "Seventyfour" that really stands out.

Review: Ron & Neil is an all-star collaboration between old buddies Jim "Ron Basejam" Baron (Crazy P), and Rack 'N' Ruin boss man Neil Diablo. Pedre Son Aclat marks the project's first appearance, with the three original tracks sitting somewhere between shimmering nu-disco, sparkling powder house, and disco-influenced grooves. The title track sets the tone, layering up colourful synthesizer chords and melodies. While tasty, Man Power's bubbly, Balearic style revision - all analogue synths, cheap drum machine hits and sleazy vocals - is arguably more satisfying. "You Feel It" is a creepy, low-slung deep house/disco hybrid blessed with killer percussive flourishes and a weighty punk funk bassline, while "Tears" is a glassy-eyed fusion of warehouse-friendly electronics and disco-funk hedonism.

Review: Freerange's latest missive comes from Los Angeles-based twosome Justin Jay and Ulf Bonde. This is their debut single, and as first outings go, it's rather impressive. "Indecision", featuring the silky-but-weary vocals of Josh Taylor, is a loose, dubby and atmospheric affair, with blissful guitar textures and soft-touch keys emphasizing the hazy, light night mood. It's accompanied by a chunkier Dub, whose swinging beats tip a wink to classic Derrick Carter productions, and a fine remix from Edward, who drags the track further towards German after-party territory. Metronomic vocal number "I See You" - in which Taylor adds sing-along choruses to his emotion-rich verses - completes an excellent package.

Review: We all know that Glasgow's Graeme Clark was there from the very beginning of this nu-disco trend, which is now more popular than ever. He is still pumping out some truly wicked jams and this new one entitled "Intimate Connection" on his own Roar Groove imprint is testament to this. For the most part these are pretty functional edits and tools for DJ use, some of them being live edits taken from his Love Will Not Die album tour. Standouts include the dust covered deep house dreaminess of "New Nation" or "Love Will Never Die", the feel-good boogie jam "Isle Of Lucy" and the rusty and vintage b-boy electro jam "Just One Touch".
