Review: A killer remix EP from Tsuba here, as three of the label's biggest names get retreated by some of the deep house scene's biggest hitters on this EP showcasing the deeper side of the imprint. First up, Aural Distortion's "Overlap" gets remixed by AN 2, turning in a cosmic mix of upwardly tumbling bass and warm chords, while Jay Shepheard reworks Kevin Griffiths' "Revolver" into a slowly intensifying piece of melodic electronica which twists itself into various contortions over its six minutes. The best however is undoubtedly the mighty Mark E's dub of Mic Newman's "Knickerbocker", a low-slung, sleazy jam full of out of focus vocals and thick warm bass slabs.

JMX - "The Bronx" - (6:29) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Ever alert for the call to action, Tsuba boss Kevin Griffiths has decided to embark on a bit of a retro-futurist mission with a little help from Burnski, Moodtrap and JMX. Each of the three producers delivers a fresh new cut, each of which takes great inspiration from great house music of the past. Burnski's "Got You" wraps some late '90s NYC riffs and eyes-wide-shut melodies around a sturdy, woodblock-heavy groove, while Moodtrap's "Grey Area" peppers a hypnotic bumper with heady vocal samples and fluid synths. JMX's "The Bronx", meanwhile, sounds like something Rollo would have made sometime around 1993, complete with classic vocal yelps and hissing jazz cymbals.

Review: In the past 18 months, Dutch duo Detroit Swindle has come from nowhere to become one of deep house's go-to names. This three-tracker for Tsuba - their first for Kevin Griffiths' label - is another 'must-check' release. Lead cut "Sometimes" is typical of their output to date; deep, stylish, quietly soulful and blessed with relentless riffs that propel the track forwards at a rate of knots. Arguably better is "That Freak Stuff", a slick chunk of deepness blessed with some rougher drums, an addictive bassline and some atmospheric, whispered vocal samples. Soulphiction remixes, turning the track on its head thanks to shuffling analogue drums, a fuzzy bassline and some glistening pianos.

Review: With a boop and a blip, Hector brings an icy veil over his own brand of deep techy theatrics in this latest release for Tsuba. Track one comes in subtle waves, gradually swelling until it completely chills you to the bone. Next up, a gently vibrating bass loop grows underneath a barely-there spooked-up melody all complemented by a crisper than crisp beat. The final track starts off with the bongo-vibe of an early 21st century Ibizan dance party but as it swells, weighty layers of interest are added thanks to key lines and crescendo after crescendo. It's the techno house monster hybrid that keps on giving.

Review: Having earned his stripes a while back with releases on Mobilee, Phonica and 2020 Vision, Hector Murillo is firmly established as a name to watch in the deep house scene. This two-tracker for Tsuba features one of his strongest cuts to date, "Hide". While it sticks to the deep house template, there are a multitude of touches that remind us not only of vintage Detroit techno (check the pads and liquid bassline), but also early R&S Records releases (the electric keys evoke memories of Jaydee's "Plastic Dreams"). The looser "Follow The Leader" treads a similar path, while "Diano" goes darker and dubbier in pursuit of devious afterhours fun.

Review: This third volume in the celebratory Tsuba Loves series - a way of championing some of their favourite artists - gives virtual hugs and kisses to Huxley, a producer whose stock seems to rise by the month. For those who've not been following his career, this is a great place to start. While largely made up of material previously released on Tsuba (naturally), it does chart his rise from young upstart to in-demand club favourite. Along the way, there's a chance to revisit some of his best material, including the garage-influenced deep house banger "Take No More" (check, too, the thrilling MK remix), the brilliant deep-but-wonky jazz-house cut "Get Your Own" and a string of early collaborations with similarly feted producer Ethyl.

Review: For a DJ and label owner who has served his time, it comes as no real surprise that Griffiths' latest release is so heavily steeped in classic house and techno influences. For example, "Revolver" shakes and jacks to the sound of Chicago house kettle drums and the tribal "Lucky Three" is underpinned by the kind of squelchy acid that Phuture 303 pioneered. The real surprise here however, is that Griffiths, in a fashion similar to Lone, has managed to articulate the woozy abandon and liquid melodies of 90s hardcore so faithfully. In particular, the glorious, sub-tropical hooks of "Thirsty Camel" sounds like a lost track from 808 State's debut album - and may prove to be as timeless.

Review: Having previously given Justin Drake and Sascha Dive the Tsuba Loves... anthology treatment, it was probably only a matter of time before label boss Kevin Griffiths compiled an instalment featuring his greatest production moments to date. Featuring a mix of both original productions and a handful of Griffiths' best remixes, Tsuba Loves... is an enjoyable jog through the veteran DJ and producer's distinct, tech-tinged deep house sound. Highlights are naturally plentiful, from the Circulation-style tech-house fluidity of Justin Drake hook-up "Midnight Special" and bongo-laden liquid house of "Lucky Three", to the downright spooky late night fare of "Jaguar Shoes".

Review: Having masterminded Tsuba's renaissance in recent years, it's nice to see that label boss Kevin Griffiths has found some space in the schedule for his own productions. This EP typifies his approach to house and techno. Lead cut "Twenty Mids" stands out, layering vocal samples, marimba melodies and head-nodding electronics over a bongo-laden tech-house groove. There's not much going on, but it's expertly arranged to guarantee maximum dancefloor thrills. "Acid Splash" is altogether deeper and more melodic than the title suggests, and is built around some particularly cosmic chords. The Breaking Bad-referencing "Los Pollos Hermanos", meanwhile, delivers a smooth take on '90s deep house - all child-like garage melodies and alien electronics.

What Is Up - (6:43) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Tsuba call upon the intermittent pairing of Jamie Read and Felix Dickinson and their Larry Heard Appreciation Society for a celebration of all things acidic on this upfront jack-fest. "Acid's Revenge" rides on a serious injection of 303 and simple but deadly drum machine bothering for a surefire club burner, complete with murky vocal incantations about the power of acid house. The "Dub" version boils the squelch down to a mean reduction that hits just as hard while the filter stays low in the frequency range, but there's room for some lighter fare with the decidedly sunnier "What Is Up". Letting some choice key stabs inject some colour into the mix, the final track packs no less old-skool punch in its mission to make you sweat.

from $1.49
Review: Tsuba bossman Kevin Griffiths has assembled an impressive quartet of talents on this fifth and final edition of the label's well-regarded Last of the Samurai series of EPs. Klasse chief Luca Lozano kicks things off with "Crucificks", a curious and slightly eccentric fusion of winding melodies and heavyweight 303 work that builds to a rough, acid-flecked climax. Cardiff-based Bristolian Owain K goes deep and techy on the basement-ready "Flush", which is reminiscent of his excellent work with Jamie Anderson for Dessous. Nil By Mouth go cowbell crazy on their swinging, loose-limbed tribute to wonky New York alt-disco, "Lumbar", before Little Fritter draws things to a close with the groovy and driving "Fifth Avenue Funk".

Played by: Jimpster, KevinTsuba
Review: Following impressive outings on We Play House, Throne Of Blood and Phonica White, Luv Jam pops up on Tsuba with a typically sparse and atmospheric collection of cuts. There's something almost Balearic about the vintage electronic drums, tumbling pianos and old-fashion, Nu Groove-ish chords of lead cut "Stop Frame Animate". There's something curiously innocent, too, about the cute melodies, hissing drum machine rhythms and vintage synths of "Animattic", while the ambient interlude "Moon Mountain" recalls Pal Joey's early remix of the Orb's "Little Fluffy Clouds". Best of all, though, is the title track, which skips, clatters and pulses its way through a decidedly wonky seven minutes and sounds like a more subdued, techno-savvy take on vintage Daniel Wang.
