Review: Viennese duo Burnin Tears may be relatively new to the game but already their sound is a fully fledged take on deep house that ticks all the right boxes. The pads are processed with a touch of grit, while the soulful vocal comes in with a mournful tone on "Got A Reason". For those emotive moments in the small hours this is guaranteed to be a real tear-jerker. "Just The Same" is equally down-trodden in its demeanour, albeit with slightly brighter melodic content. On remix duties Jakobin and Domino bring a bit more stripped-down funk to "Got A Reason", while Hans Froward dubs it out nicely.

Review: Burnin Tears is a joint project from Luv Shack regulars Simonlebon and Lee Stevens. Their first single together, 2012's "Got A Reason", was impressively deep, fluid and Balearic. "Permanent Midnite", featuring the heart-aching, emotion-rich vocals of Georges Perin, is, if anything, even deeper. Perin's super-soulful vocal perfectly matches the duo's subtle, melodic, midtempo production - all long, drawn-out chords, tear-jerking melodies and simple, head-nodding beats. There's a sweatier feel to virtual flipside "U Don't Get Me", a bold and bouncy hook-up with fellow Luv Shack regular Jakobin that fixes sweet deep house pads to a chunky US house groove. A solid radio edit of the title track completes a decent package.

from $1.49
Review: This seductive four-tracker is the first in a two-part, summer-themed series from Austrian crew Luv Shack. Burnin Tears and Jakobin kick things off with the huggable, summer of love-themed "Heartcore", before sometime House of Disco man continues his travels into original production with the touchy-feely "Made for Each Other". The package also boasts a couple of excellent remixes of previous Luv Shack releases. Mike Burns evokes the spirit of a Croatian summer with his atmospheric, sun-kissed deep house take on LeSale's "On The Beach", while Ben Sun and Tyson Ballard don the Voyeurhythm mask for a rolling, decidedly percussive rework of Lee Stevens and Domino's "Be Yourself". It's the best thing on the EP by some distance.

Always There - (6:22) 119 BPM

Review: Luv Shack mainstays Jakobin and Domino have long made the kind of sumptuous, sinewy, soul-flecked deep house that makes you want to hug complete strangers. This latest two-tracker is no different. The woozy chords, soul vocal samples and US garage-influenced keys of "Need a Dance" are decidedly tactile. While enveloping and pleasingly groovy, the track has enough "grunt" to cut it out on the dancefloor. The same could be said about the more stripped back - but no less deep - "Always There", which creates a mesmerizing concoction out of a handful of killer elements (sturdy beats, bassline, great vocal, a few keys and some subtle strings).

Review: A hot contender for breakthrough house label of 2012, Viennese deep heads Luv shack return for another four track package of groovy goodness. Both "Squeeze Me" and its respective LeSale remix bump and bounce with an early Freerange or Inland Knights jack while "Lately" is more analogue, acid and tech inspired, rolling with a Brett Johnson / early Classic Records vibe. And if that's just a tad too retro and stripped back, jump on the deeply cosmic Burning Tears remix. Feel the Luv.

Review: There's something heartwarming about the way Vienna's Luv Shack crew go about their business. From the start, their releases have given the impression of being made by a bunch of mates having a whale a time in the studio. This seventh release is no different. Jakobin and Domino kick things off with "Sensation", a simple but effective revivalist '90s house groover. LeSale's "Before The Night" delivers simpler thrills, all bright and breezy pianos and rubbery bottom end, while Burnin Tears' excellent "Your Fantasy" sounds like a long lost B-side dub from a particularly touchy-feely '80s alternative pop cut. Lee Stevens and Jakobin round things off with the wonderful "Dem Young People", an almost melancholy chunk of gorgeous, string-drenched deepness.

Review: Having by now fully exhausted the first part of Luv Shack's summer themed series, we're now ready for part two. Lee Stevens & Domino's "Vacances En Afrique" kicks begin with a seven-minute opus - all live bass, floating vocals, bongos and bongs. Burnin Tears' "Confessions (ROTCIV remix)" ups the pace by diving straight into a clever blend of raw acid and shimmering Balearica, DJ Rocca revisits some '90s warped organ vibes on "Ring Bell" and blends them with a strong electronic bassline. Finally things end on a moody note with the tough underground pump of "Struggle (Radio Diffusion remix)".

Review: Given the success of their other releases, it's hard to believe that this is only the fifth release from Austria's Luv Shack label. It features four collaborations between Lee Stevens and various Luv Shack luminaries, all of which fit into the label's sweet, touchy-feely deep house template. "LuvSick", Stevens' hook-up with LeSale, is positively Balearic in its feelgood outlook, while "Find A Girl" (co-produced by Jakobin) takes a woozier, fuller approach, all drowsy chords and filter-heavy grooves. "Deep Inside", with the brilliantly named Simonlebon, recalls classic US deep house of old - all analogue percussion and booming 909 boss - while "Be Yourself" casually drifts between the speakers on a warming wave of nu-disco synths and Balearic chords.

Review: LeSale returns to regular home Luv Shack for a darker than usual trip into fuzzy house territory. "LeSexe" is something of a basement bumper, all liquid synth bass, hazy vocal samples, cosmic chords and darting melodies. Lee Stevens and Domino go deeper on their remix, opting for thick, US-house inspired chords, thickset beats and shuffling beats. "Symphony" is an altogether more upbeat affair, fixing wide-eyed, neo-Balearic melodies and vocal samples to acid bass and fluid chords. SimonLeBon and Jakobin's remix is, if anything, even more beautiful, thanks to judicious use of sweet chords and tear-jerking melodies.

Review: Austria-based Sammy "LeSale"Jenkins returns to Vienna's LuvShack imprint with a sparkling blast of piano-laden nu-disco. In truth, it arguably has more in common with classic house than nu-disco, but its summery warmth and tasty grooves recall the halcyon days of disco. Burnin Tears remixes, turning the bouncy original into a heady deep house groover. "What You Get", meanwhile, sees Jenkins move further towards straight-up house territory with a cut that intelligently fuses classic vocal samples (Marlena Shaw, this time), acid tweakery and late night disco vibes. The package is completed by a delightfully touchy-feely remix of the same track by Jakobin and Domino.

Review: The first split EP from Austrian newcomers Luv Shack Records, Luv Is Louder, delivered a distinctly Balearic blend of soft-focus disco and sparkling, piano-laden house. This second offering is just as sunny. LeSale's opener, "On The Beach", seems tailor-made for dancing on terraces in blazing heat - all lazy horns, spine-tingling pianos and chunky disco bass. Burnin' Tears go deeper on "How I Feel", utilising pitched-down soulful vocal samples for a delightful wrongspeed/rightspeed fusion. Jakobin and Domino deliver a dubbed-out take on MK-era US garage with the formidable "Struggle", while Lee Stevens goes all bleary-eyed and Balearic on comfy closer "Reapers Of Luv". A sloppy kiss of a release...with added tongue.

Review: Newcomers Luv Shack Records have a simple agenda: to prove that the city of Vienna is home to a hotbed of new production talent. This first split EP, featuring four distinct cuts from some of their homegrown artists, suggests that they could do good things in 2012. LeSale starts things off with "Make Me Feel So Good", a fabulously luxurious chunk of goodtime disco with a distinct soulful twist. Burnin Tears offer a dub fusion of sun-kissed nu-disco and organic deep house, while Jakobin & Domino jack it out with the delightfully bumpin' acid track "Night Glow". A thrilling slab of piano heavy, late night nu-disco from The Beautiful People completes a fine package.

Review: For their eleventh outing, Austria's Luv Shack turn to Berlin duo Manhooker, a collaboration between producers Tomasz "Guido" Switala, and Sebastian "Mavin" Magassouba. "Pushin' & Shovin" is a curious combination; it has enough chops to work a dancefloor, but its dreamy vocal and hazy trumpets evoke memories of lingering Balearic sunsets. Roctiv remix, giving the track a much more straightforward club interpretation. Think rolling electronic riffs, sprightly melodies and chunky bottom-end bounce. The package is completed by a short and sweet radio edit for those with attention deficit disorder.

Review: Simonlebon (no, not the Simon le Bon) shares a similar ethos to that of his Luv Shack stable mates; specifically, he sees much benefit in working with others. So, this typically atmospheric, fluid four-tracker of nu-disco influenced deep house features a quartet of collaborations. First, he joins forces with Lee Stevens for "All I Can", a string-laden trip into teary-eyed, rush-inducing lusciousness. "Second Chance", with Domino, is, if anything, even deeper; any deeper, and they'd touch the centre of the earth. Jakobin hook-up "Can't Do Without You" is an altogether jauntier affair, all soft-focus garage revivalism and shuddering drum machine hits. Even better, though, is "So Many", a formidably tough and energetic hoedown with old pal LeSale.

Review: Gospel vocals, super charged Stevie Wonder inspirations, Daniel Wang disco bleeps - a little bit of Ed Banger-esque sample structure - and new age P-funk meets classic Bootsy Collins. That's one way of explaining the new EP by Space Echo on Luv Shak; "Soul People", however, is a truly sombre and deep house affair. And with two radio edits thrown in, Pete Tong will be licking his lips.
