Review: With DJ names like Take It Easy and Friso, it's probably to be presumed that German duo Adana Twins don't take themselves too seriously. That tongue in cheek attitude can be heard on "Everyday", a delightfully loose and languid cut that sounds like a funkier, groovier and, well, slightly less overbearing take on the work of Benoit & Sergio. Despite being propelled forward by a superb synth bassline, it lazily slips from the speakers rather than jumping towards you like a ninja on speed. "Strange" continues in a similar vein, offering a laidback, Soul Clap style cover of The Doors' "People Are Strange". With nice pianos. However odd that may seem on paper, it's actually superb.

Review: You'd expect any collaboration between seasoned studio veterans Andre Crom and Martin Dawson to be suitably solid, and "Need U Back" doesn't disappoint. In fitting with many current deep house records, it looks back for inspiration, infusing its tech-tinged deep house grooves with bumpin' New Jersey bass and hypnotic, bleep-heavy riffs reminiscent of the NYC's finest mid-90s cuts. Homework's laidback remix adds some much-needed shuffle to the previously rigid beats, throwing some spine-tingling breakdowns into a delightfully spacious and heartwarming mix. If anything, it's better than Crom and Dawson's driving original.

Review: Mystery surrounds the identity of Berlin-based production combo Claptone. Perhaps it doesn't matter, but it would be nice to know who's behind this four-track selection of sharply floor-focused tech-house, deep house and disco blends. There's a driving intensity to the heavyweight disco-tech of "Make Me Feel", a relentless bumper that loops up vocal snippets from a familiar Sylvester tune. "Maximum" offers a deeper, Chicago-influenced cut along similar lines, whilst lead track "She Loves You" rises magnificently thanks to some cute vocals and hooky riffs. "Wicked", meanwhile, offers a rolling contemporary take on ragga-house - all loose breakbeats, thumping bottom end and quirky dancehall vocals. Check it.

Review: Berlin's Claptone are surprise heroes of the download charts, an act who seem to be getting better with each well-timed digital release. Last year's "Cream" became something of an underground anthem following strong support from the likes of DJ Sneak, Soul Clap and DJ Hell. Here, they deliver another quietly impressive, rock solid two-tracker. Lead cut "Wrong" combines shuffling deep house beats with a familiar piano riff and snatches of a classic house vocal. The warmer "No Eyes", complete with an atmospheric vocal from singer Jaw, should please those who like their deep house warm, fuzzy and laden with comfy electric piano stabs.

Review: Consistent's second release on Shir Khan's Exploited label sees him again share the same platform as respected producers like Adam Sky and Siriusmo - and like the first release, he doesn't fail to impresses. "Feel" is an insistent rolling techno track that appears to focus on dub-fuelled repetition - however, it unexpectedly veers into a disco-fuelled breakdown and from then onwards remains a filter-fuelled club track. There is nonetheless an alternative dub version, and it is this mix that fans of Basic Channel and Chain Reaction will reach for. Its repetitive dubby groove and deep stabs are reminiscent of Pelon's classic "No Stunts", albeit infused with a sunnier, more upbeat feeling.

Review: Homework's Hudson Square EP, released in February, found its way into the CD wallets of a wide range of DJs thanks to a breezy mix of deep house and nu-disco flavours. For this remix release, three tracks from the original EP get a good going over from a variety of deep house heads. While not as immediately engaging as the EP itself, there's still plenty to get excited about. Darabi's version of "Whipped Cream" - a snappy fusion of bubbling disco and deep house melodies - stands out, while Homework's own rework of the Kenny Dixon Jnr-sampling "I'm Into This" is a soft-focus, soul-flecked delight.

Review: Shir Kahn's electro-house label proves that they're still kicking ass with another dancefloor-blistering (actually, is that even possible?) release, and this time it's courtesy of Chicago's James Curd. First up, we get a collaboration between Curd and Luke Million of The Swiss. "Yellow Magic" a slick, heavily compressed electro-disco-boogie monster, but let's mention the elephant in the room here, its more than a vague relation to Daft Punk's Voyager, "Don't Know How" is hypnotic looped and filtered house, while the poppy title track, featuring new wave vocals from Annabel Weston, has more in common with punk funk and reggae.

Review: Vienna-based Brazilian Joyce Muniz has long been regarded as "one to watch", thanks largely to some impressive early outings on Man Recordings and, latterly, 2020 Vision. Here she returns to occasional home Exploited with a typically swinging chunk of peaktime deep house. The original version of "Trust Your Enemies", featuring a bold vocal from Kinixx, offers the perfect balance between bumpin' '90s revivalism and the sort of slick cocaine house with which Maceo Plex made his name. The EP's real standout moment, though, is the Dub Enemy Mix, which sounds like Joyce dragged Local Talk kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
