Review: Known for his incendiary DJ sets, complete with ghoulish mask, as well his appearance in the recent Fracture + Neptune release "Get Busy", Dawn Day Night continues to make his mark here with a self-titled EP on the aforementioned Fracture + Neptune's Astrophonica label. "Alcoholic Dance Flow" gets the party started with swirling beats, punctuated by spoken lyrics reverberating in the soundscape. "Death Of Scorpio" is another killer cut with a throbbing b-line and enticing intro, with dancing, skittish beats, whilst "Big Booty Girls" is another low slung killer with a sparse, dubbed out soundscape and echoing elements and quirky SFX, before "Voodoo Vibe" brings the EP to a close. Well worth checking out.

Review: Is there a better acronym than VIP? WTF is a close contender; especially when discussing a VIP of this powerful persuasion. For those who aren't aware of Fracture & Neptune's original, "The Limit" is quintessential D&B business straight outta 2010. Devious, menacing and rolling, it still sounds incredible today. As does this special remix; a stuttering, snarling drumsteppy reversion, this retains all the beauty of the original while adding enough contemporary bass grit to appeal to a whole new dancefloor.

Review: Recently announced as the latest artist to trade Planet Mu for Ninja Tune, Machinedrum celebrates a four LP deal with the venerable UK label with a fresh drop for Fracture's Astrophonica label. One of the leading lights in 150bpm+ excursions, Astrophonica has been dominated by Fracture's own output - last year's The Limit VIP being a label highlight - though appearances from the likes of Om Unit demonstrate they do broaden their remit occasionally. Clissold VIP expertly shifts from the fidgety drum edits of its opening minutes to a jungle riffing midsection with the kind of aplomb the Berlin-based Travis Stewart is renowned for, whilst the BoC style synths on display throughout ensure the track remains finely balanced between accessible and aggressive. This release in a word? Essential!
