Review: With just 18 releases in almost as many years, Peter 'Baby' Ford's Trelik label could hardly be accused of being prolific, but then again, it has been used mainly as a vehicle for the owner's various guises. The 18th instalment marks a change to this approach, however, as Trelik welcomes 'outsider' LD Nero to the fold. Available in two versions, "Nite Out" is sublime atmospheric house music: the pulsing, arcing bass of the dawn dub version underpins a ponderous feeling, while the dusk dub is more tripped out: based on a woozy synth line, like every other Trelik release, its subtlety is its greatest strength.

Review: Baby Ford's long running Trelik label enjoyed a more prolific year in 2011 than at any time in the past decade, and Whalesong is a fitting end to a glorious 12 months. If you've been following Och's releases, then you'll know what to expect here. The title track sees the mysterious producer drop dubbier, full blooded beats and billowing chords over a surging groove, while the use of shuffling drums and a stuttering vocal lend the track a memorable signature. "Blind Is The Wind" is an unusual ambient affair thanks to the inclusion of a confused vocal, but Och returns to his natural habitat on "Last Chance Saloon", which features more of the same pumping beats and dreamy chord sequences.

Review: Thomas Melchior and Baby Ford's irregular collaborative project yields one of its most esoteric releases yet. No matter what its title suggests, Deep Dawn feels more like night descending as a gloopy, claustrophobic bass threatens to engulf everything in its path, including the breathy vocals. If the title track is characterised by an innate heaviness, then "New Day Dawn" is the exact opposite: the same vocal is at the arrangement's core, but the elements that surround it are infused with a lightness. Razor-sharp percussion and wanton horn stabs revolve around the vocal sample as woozy chords nudge the track towards a trippy denouement.

Review: Trelik returns with a reissued edition of one of the catalogue's most treasured releases. "Overcome" and "Lady Science (NYC Sunrise)" need little introduction, and now come sporting the new TR11:11 matrix number. Written and produced by Thomas Melchior and Baby Ford aka Soul Capsule, these tracks came from one of the many sessions recorded at the West London Ifach Studio in 1999. "Overcome" is stripped back and energetic, driven by rolling and shuffling garage style beats, tight bubbling bass and atmospheric synth pads. The intermittent vocal samples and the release's signature organ set you up for the accompanying "Lady Science (NYC Sunrise)". Possibly one of house music's most emotive pieces, the track builds slowly with the introduction of each part building a story of soulful optimism based around a sparse palette of deep synths, uplifting keys and warm analogue bass. The understated beauty of the main vocal riff never seems to grow old or tired with the track lending itself perfectly to either main room, peak-time play or after-hours sessions alike.
