Review: Acid Pauli is a name synonymous with Berlin clubbing culture; he got his musical education in the city via experiences at places like Bar 25 and Fusion Festival and claims to be 'deeply rooted in musicality and adventurousness.' BLD is the second full album from Martin Gretschmann aka Acid Pauli and builds on his already impressive back catalogue that includes a debut album released on Nicolas Jaar's Clown and Sunset. Starting out with the deep and tropical ethnic vibes of "Baris, the deep dub techno of "Majid" equally impressed us while the sexy and sublime beatless synth workout "Joan" added some romantic flavour. Closing track "Jorge" has some wonderful analogue synth textures hypnotising you into submission on this esoteric journey that'll appeal to Crosstown Rebels fans.

Review: Ralf Fabian Laumer is no nu-comer (sorry) to music production, boasting a discography that stretches back to releases on Daniel Offermann's White imprint at the tail end of the noughties. This, though, is his first EP for well over a year, and sees him showcase a warmer sound than we've come to expect. He gets off to a flying start with "Endup", an attractive 112 BPM riff on Afro-house that sits somewhere between the humid, new-age influenced deep house goodness of Young Marco and the comforting haziness of Balearic nu-disco. He dips the tempo significantly on the EP's other two tracks, first laying down some hypnotic, dub-influenced slow house on "Cosa Mia", before repeating the trick with the quietly disco-influenced Balearic chug of "Palomita".

Review: Ohm-G man Olaf Gutbrod has forged a career out of crafting deep house sound collages, where dusty samples, snatched beats and hazy textures combine to create impressive dancefloor moments. This EP for Acid Pauli and Nico Stojan's Ouie imprint sees him continue this approach under a new alias, Quantum Collage. Opener "Lucid Dreaming", a deliciously atmospheric late night roller full of layered tribal percussion, Italo-disco style arpeggio bass, delay-laden reggae horns and trippy vocal samples, is particularly impressive, though the rubbery bounce, alien synths lines and tumbling trumpet solos of "Afrika Im Weltraum" also hits the spot. Elsewhere, "Her Beauty" is a lilting chunk of Balearic deep house, while "Kamel Im Windkanal" is as exotic, humid and intoxicating as they come.
