Review: Having forged a career out of the sort of ballsy, in-your-face garage/rave hedonism, Christian Sibthorpe is attempting to take his A1 Bassline project in another direction. As a result, the Breakaway EP's title track is a deep, fluid groover that seductively shimmies between the speakers. Rather than bowel-bothering basslines and blunt beats, there are classic US garage keys, woozy pads and intricate drums. "Open Mind" and the thunderous "Copper" feature rhythms deeply rooted in UK garage, but still boast more depth than your average Olympic diving pool. If you've enjoyed Scuba's recent outings, you'll definitely enjoy this.

Review: Joseph Ashworth is a master when it comes to groovy tech-house steppers, and his tunes have taken him from label to label, from one beat to the next thanks to his magnetic style. First up on this new EP for Pets Recordings is "Money", and its groove is full of energy thanks to the thick layers of percussion and melodies, while "Speedo" does more of the same but heads into deeper, more mystical territories. "Collapse" itself is more of a big room banger banger powered by big chords and chunky beats, but it's actually "Thirst" that gets all the attention from us; the tune's banging, full-bodied and full of the kind of gear that makes you swing. Tough, effective tunes that deliver the goods on all fronts.

Review: Although they've been active since 2012, Beesmunt Soundsystem's releases have been frustratingly sporadic. Here, the Dutch duo presents their first outing of 2015. There's plenty to admire, with the duo tweaking their trademark sound - warehouse-friendly sleaze with added distorted dustiness - on a trio of original cuts. "Searching" is tense and intoxicating, with choice vocal samples and long, creepy chords wrapping themselves around a dense, click-heavy, UK funky-influenced tech-house groove. The similarly hypnotic "Raindance" combines spooky chords and shuffling percussion with a killer, old style Chicago house bassline, while "Ominous" is an intoxicating, Middle East-inspired dusty jacker. Borrowed Identity remix "Searching", giving it a Motor City deep house-meets-UK bass makeover.

Review: Dirtybird casuals Catz n Dogz spring up on the aptly named Pets Recordings with three new house grinders in their familiarly playful tone. "From Your Heart", for instance, is a slow burner packed with plenty of FX trickery and a gorgeous soundscape of hypnotising vocals. The rest of the EP is similarly deep and mesmerising, scrapping their previous floor-centred house escapades for a richer, more textural sound that will do just as well on a pair of headphones as they will in a warm up DJ set. Top stuff!

Review: Polish heavyweights Catz 'N' Dogz has had a quiet year by their usually prolific standards. It would be fair to say, though, that these two cuts have been worth waiting for. "It's Happening" is a warm, rich and groovy affair, with fluttering deep house notes playing second fiddle to a booming disco bassline, flanged vocal samples and huggable drums. "Our Crazy" feels dirtier and a little more intense, with restless arpeggio lines and nagging electronic percussion combining perfectly with the duo's deliciously dense, tribal-influenced drums and chiming, marimba style lead lines. It's the kind of track you whack on to raise the temperature on the dancefloor when things are flagging, and every DJ needs a few of those in the crates.

Review: The list of remixers involved in this reworked version of Catz 'N' Dogz 2015 album Basic Colour Theory makes interesting reading. While the Polish duo has called on some big-name pals - Claude VonStroke, Fred Everything and Jamie Jones, for starters - they've also recruited some more left-of-centre talents, including Psychmagik and Polish contemporaries P'taki. The variety and depth of talent shines through from the start, with Fulton's synth-boogie interpretation of "Good Touch" making way for a lusciously deep and electronic mix of "Nobody Cares" by Karizma. Elsewhere, highlights include a rubbery tech-house take on "The Joy" from Anja Schneider, some sweaty, late night business from Eats Everything and Skudge, and Matthew Herbert's thrillingly wonky, Isolee style revision of "Good Touch".

Review: Grzegorz and Wojciech are back - has it really been ten years now that these guys have been plying their craft? Some would consider them legends now. The Polish via Berlin duo are back with a couple of sleek tech house cuts for their always reliable Pets Recordings imprint. "Opsi Bubsi"has just the right amount of bump and bounce to warm up crowds during the pre-peak time slot. Otherwise "Elixir" gets deep and atmospheric on that Crosstown Rebels esoteric vibe with layers of hypnotising pads doing most of the work over a low slung groove.

There's also "I Can Do Anything", an R&B flavoured funky house bomb and a club mix of "Killing With Kindness". Woof!

Review: Current kings of deep house (by its modern definition), Polish duo Catz N Dogz are back with a new single aimed at the more commercial end of the dance spectrum on their Pets Recordings label. From the get go, "Get It Right" is a catchy sing/clap-a-long bouncy jam with quirky rootin' tootin' trumpet lines to boot. There's also an extended version for the DJs, whilst Dirtybird founder Claude Von Stroke rounds out the release with a streamlined thumper of a remix that will please those looking for something a bit tougher.

Mass Confusion (original mix) - (5:23) 122 BPM
from $1.92
Review: There's a big difference between the minimal sound that Catz n Dogz first rose to prominence with a few years back and the approach that they have chosen for Lenonki. "Professor Nice Love" starts off as a deep, building house groove, but its swirling chords go down a psychedelic route, leading to a trippy break down and later still a time-stretched bassline. The link to 2-step/speed garage becomes more pronounced on the dub version, where acid riffs compete with a rude sub-bass. "Mass Confusion" with its stepping rhythm and exhortation to move your body, completes this most unexpected of transformations.

Review: Catz N Dogz' Pets imprint continues to go strength to strength. The Polish expats in Berlin unleash Glasgow's Dalfie on us now. "Purple Hub" features a rolling peak time groove for the main room it gets better too, after the drop! The funked up "Marching Power" is the kind of summery high-octane tech house you can expect to hear on The White Isle this summer, smashed out by the likes of Audiojack or Nic Fanciulli. The remix by Swede Dorisburg (Genius Of Time/Aniara) gives the track a more underground vibe on this nefariously dark electro remix which is absolutely sick.

Review: Oasis marks a welcome return to action for Darius Vaikas, who last pricked the collective consciousness with his 2015 Guilt EP on Best Kept Secret. He begins with "Brother", a crackly instrumental lullaby built around cascading music box melodies, rich keys and fuzzy aural textures, before stepping towards the dancefloor via the atmospheric deep house shuffle of "The Bells". Title track "Oasis" continues on a similar theme, with alternately chiming and tumbling melodies stretching out across a clicking, tech-tinged rhythm track. Throw in rising chords and synthesizer motifs, and you have a chunk of effortlessly lazy audio sunshine. Finally, he layers swirling textures and fluid electronics atop a stuff house groove on fine closer "Save Me".

"In Thin Air" by Steffano Ritteri is misty eyed synth-pop and Kim Ann Foxman & Shaun J Wright get really deep and emotional on the jackin' "Destination".

Review: This is Kaspar's second release on Pets having also put out material recently for Upon You and Kompakt's Exklusiv offshoot. Like Pets' owners, Catz N'Dogz, Kaspar mines a freestyle form of minimal house and techno. This is most audible on "Strout". The bass lunges and lurches unpredictably, there are blasts and bursts of atonal noise and a rickety percussive accompaniment that holds the arrangement together. He adopts a far different approach on "Roundhouse"; closer in sound to late 90s party techno, it centers on a rolling rhythm, larger than life horn stabs and the kind of rolling snares that are the polar opposite of glum minimalism.

Review: Anjunadeep and Needwant regular Joseph Ashworth returns to Pets Recordings following a near two year hiatus. "Sienna" is impressively woozy and tactile, with rich, lo-fi riffs, drifting chords and seductive electronics wrapping themselves around a loose but locked-in drum machine rhythm. While impressive, Earth Trax's remix - which introduces some tasty New Jersey style organs and a genuinely saucer-eyed Balearic house feel - is arguably even better. Perhaps best of all, though, is "Vitamins", a pleasingly analogue-sounding chunk of rolling deep house positivity that boasts some seriously juicy piano riffs amongst its many musical charms. Expect to hear all three tracks a lot in coming months.

Review: This isn't your average Pets Recordings release. While some of the trademarks of Cats 'N' Dogz label are present - tasty atmospheres, rubbery but solid bass, that Hypercolour-ish groove - it neatly sidesteps convention. "Obsession", for example, is built around the twin delights of cascading synths and speaker-busting bass. Simon Garcia remixes, turning the picturesque original into a bombing, bass-heavy chugger (kind of like a modern take on the early Atlantc Jaxx sound). "Road", meanwhile, is fluid, tactile and almost Balearic in its use of floaty melodies, wispy chords and wide-eyed atmospherics. Like the rest of the EP, it's a surprising but impressive break from the norm.

Review: Next up on Catz 'N Dogz Berlin based imprint in Dutch producer Larry de Kat with yet more deep shenanigans following up great releases recently on Bristol's Banoffee Pies and his own Katnip Records. On the smoky and dusted down groove of "I Know You Can Hear Me" it's all about a love affair with analogue machines while "Naakte Groef" is just as stripped back and dubby, allowing those rusty drum computer rhythms to do most of the work supported by faint synth textures in the background. "Amlou" allows for something different on this loopy and vaguely jazzy jam that'll appeal to fans of DJ Sneak or the Robsoul sound; until things get back into the dubby side of things with the immersive liquid groove of "She Doesnt".

Review: Catz 'N Dogz Pets Recordings are really on a roll at the moment and for their next release they have Mathias Kaden, the tech house hero from Jena is back with more high-octane dancefloor energy with "Polyphonic" which rises and rises in suspense with its tightly programmed groove. "NoKick" does exactly what it says on the tin on this beatless, dark acid house jam which will make an effective DJ tool for the more adventurous DJs or be perfect as an opening track.

Review: Transsistor is one of the finest vocal-tinged house releases this year. The title track squelches and grooves in an irresistible manner, and when the breathy 'hey hey' vocals kick in, it is reminiscent of vintage Terry Francis tech-house. But the killer cut here is "Miss You". Over a rolling groove, tight, clipped drums and a bassline that can only be described as predatory, the unnamed female vocalist offers a seductive, lusty narrative to listeners. It makes for a compelling combination and by contrast, "Sorrow" sounds positively innocent. Featuring a mid-tempo rhythm, it boasts melancholic synths and breathy vocals. However, it shows that Pol On has a head for songwriting as well as track-making - and both skills come together on Transsistor.
