Review: Bristolian duo Aashton & Swift are back with an impressively chic new two-tracker. "Holy House" is a velvety smooth, deep rolling, disco-house, affair that slowly evolves with the aid of glacial synths, floaty vocals and tribal percussion. "Covenant", up next, is a DJ T-style electro-house workout that combines electro-pop with laissez-faire house. They've also surrendered the title track to the ever-reliable Tronik Youth, who has twisted the tune in his own inimitable manner. The result is a killer, trippy mix that ups the electro quota and smothers the vocals in hazy effects.

Review: Sliding over to Bodywork after making some noises on Southern Fried last year, Firas' new EP is definitely a game of two halves. For those seeking out steady, well kept house music, "Stray" can give you plenty of what you need. Delicate arpeggios and keys weave themselves around a vocal hook, while the warm bass ticks away underneath. Bringing a different vibe to the floor, "For Those Who Know" works on a slow electro rhythmic template, ditching the regimented 4/4 in favour of something a little more broken. It's still very much a workable track that should slot in smoothly whether it's a bassy vibe you're after or you want to take it housier.

Review: It's hard not to fall in love with "1983", the title cut from this three-track showcase on the blossoming digi-label Body Work from London dwelling Paraguayan troupe LPZ (who also operate as Keepup! favourites Lopez) Melding electrofunk stabs and dubbed-out synths to a gigantic, acid-inspired synth bassline, it feels far more driving and energetic than its 122 BPM tempo - thanks, perhaps, to use of cut-up rap vocal samples. "Mafia (Dub)" offers a darker, groovier vibe, twisting deep house in to murky and, crucially, bassy new shapes. A booming EP is completed by the oddly titled "Snake & Butterfish", a chugging, acid-laden slow jam that seemingly revels in its nightmarish atmospherics. Quietly impressive stuff.

Review: Having just about recovered from their end-of-a-brilliant-year celebrations, Body Work get to work on 2013 with a debut from new London act, Semedo. "Love Illusion" is an effervescent homage to the raw Chicago pop of Ten City (and with that vocal, Corona too?). Suburban Dance Club delivers a haunting late night tech-house version, but its man of the moment, Capracara's immense jackin' warehouse re-rub that's really slaying it.

Review: There's no doubt that 2012 has been Waze & Odyssey's year. In the nine months since the turn of the year, they've gone from unknown deep house producers to celebrated garage revivalists. This is thanks to a series of releases that catch the zeitgeist whilst sounding like they could have been made in 1992. "Turn The Volume On" is another killer in the same mould, delivering thunderous (but swinging) drums, "Show Me Love"-ish riffs and just the right amount of cut-up vocal samples. "Rejected" tweaks the formula slightly - check the loose drums and relentless chiming melodies - but still sounds like it was designed to make people lose it in New York basements somewhere around 1994. Given the current climate, both tunes will no doubt be massive.
