Review: Following the recent success of his debut EP Basement Dubs, Romanian producer Aeromaschine returns with an impressively groovy three-tracker. While that set showcased a variety of tech house flavours, this time round he's merrily skipping through deep house pastures. The title track sets the standard, lacing solid congas and bongos over a shuffling, late night mix of cut-up female vocal samples and deep chords. "Must Be" explores similar territory, throwing in some dub techno production techniques for a warm, spaced-out feel. A promising EP closes with Marcus Worgull's interpretation of "Ascultam Vorbe", a rolling and defiantly hypnotic cut that recalls Ame and Stefan Goldmann.

Review: Under his Erdbeerschnitzel guise, producer Tim Kelling has consistently delivered excellent material that's notoriously hard to pigeonhole. Tender Leaf, his second full-lenghth, follows a similar pattern. His default setting seems to be bright but woozy electronica heavily laden with nu-disco synths and curious, off-beat deep house rhythms. There's plenty of that here, alongside more dancefloor-centric tracks that shift further towards loose deep house (see "Semantics") and skittering, bass-music inspired beatscapes that glisten with high-speed rhythmic intent. There's also a deliciously wonky house/nu-disco/R&B fusion ("Through The Night") that's almost worth the admission price on its own.

Review: One of the best things about Erdbeerschnitzel is that you're never quite sure what he'll come up with next - though, by and large, you know that it will be melodic, interesting and possibly slightly off-kilter. These are all plaudits that can be applied to "Through The Night", a treacle-think chunk of tumbling, touchy-feely slow house that expertly mangles an old soul/R&B vocal. "Confused" is even odder, but also formidably melodic, layering cascading melodies and vocal cut-ups atop a sludgy, leftfield house rhythm. It's hard to place, musically, but as impressive as you'd expect from Erdbeerschnitzel.

Review: Hamburg-based Mirau Musik has been releasing high-grade house treats since back in 2008. Since then, they've been responsible for a series of impressive releases that join the dots between wonky house, analogue deepness and touchy-feely nu-disco. This first label compilation showcases their best to date, from the touching melodic rush of Mano Le Tough's "Eurodancer" and atmospheric late night shuffle of Good Guy MIkesh & Filburt, to the 'what-the-Dickens' disco oddness of Erobique and Tensnake's anthemic "Around The House". There's also some excellent gear from Erdbeerschnitzel and a live mix of label material, recorded at Robert Johnson, by Gerd Jansen.

Review: Iron Curtis's "Horses", released last year on his "Small Wide Waist Band" full-length, is a glorious example of why there's still plenty of invention left in house. Managing to be both ludicrously tough and gorgeously intricate, it threw a lot of unusual and eccentric sounds into the mix with impressive effect. If you missed out, you can get it here, alongside a trio of equally impressive remixes. Top prize goes to deep house veteran (and all round legend) Move D, whose stripped-back but intensely beautiful take will make your ears feel like they're wallowing in a Radox-infused bath. Nu-disco types the KDMS provide a wonky, off-kilter rework that sits somewhere between organic deep house and wide-eyed electronic disco.

Review: Having appeared on an impressive range of labels over the past three years - Kolour Recordings, 4Lux, Mule Electronic and Retreat amongst them - Iron Curtis returns to his original home, Mirau, to deliver a debut album jam-packed with retro-futurist analogue deep house jams. As he's previously proved, Iron Curtis is a dab hand at many different styles of deep and jacking house music, making Soft Wide Waist Band an entertaining listen. So, we get joyously melodic, string-laden Detroitisms (see "Hurts"), soft focus bass music (the title track), other-wordly acid house (The Sun), heavenly, Mr Beatnick-ish deepness ("O'Hare") and even some spiralling wonk-hop ("To The Liv") - all blessed with the delicate electronic sheen of machine soul.

Review: Say what you like about Marco 'Tensnake' Niemerski, but the boy certainly knows how to craft hook-laden dancefloor bangers. Since striking gold with the ubiquitous "Coma Cat", the German producer has laid down all manner of hands-in-the-air remixes - most boasting a delightful blend of old skool house flava and electronic disco sassiness. "Something About You" continues this theme, mixing 80s Fairlight stabs, sparkling piano riffs and hooky vocal samples with a chunky retro-house groove to impressive effect. Simian Mobile Disco man Jas Shaw offers a similarly acid house/Inner City-themed remake, whilst bonus cut "Congolal" slows the pace in a Balearic house style. Big!
