Review: After some real hits by the likes of Natsirk, Filthy Gears and Toka, London's Ghost House present Brighton bad boy Moony. The promising upstart drops his second EP for the label but this time on a bass and garage flex. Starting off with the deep and sexy shuffle of the title track, he's then into some proper UK flavour on the funky party starter "Far From You" which is absolutely hot. Plus of course, there's the massive tune 'Without You' as featured on the hit compilation Pure Bassline.

Review: Och has been a regular fixture on Baby Ford's Trelik label in recent years, and he returns with the late night delights of the Love Unconditional EP sounding stronger than ever. "Sunday Love" is a warm and cosy bumper, keeping the keys bright and breezy while the beat skips away dutifully before the more heads down thrust of "More Journeys Into Swing". The real star of the show though is "Love Unconditional", a particularly gripping track that unfurls seductive synth licks and vocal licks on a trip to nocturnal body jam perfection.

Review: It's that time again where Dixon, Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann serve up another edition of their Secret Weapons series which always lives up to its name; just they aren't that secret anymore thankfully! As always the Innervisions camp present a real mix up of names from across the board of house and techno and there's some pleasant surprises once again. Starting off with Belgian tech house heroes Raw District with the brooding and suspense filled "From The Inside" which is the kind of track you could really imagine Dixon playing to a festival crowd. Berlin legend Oliver Deutschmann (Falkplatz/Vidab) with the dreamy and hypnotic "Control" was great too. Elsewhere there's Southern German merchant of dark journey tracks Tim Engelhardt representing the new garde (alongside Bog) with "No More Words" featuring some wonky synth leads and minimal techno legend Marc Houle with the cheeky retro EBM jack of "Tomboyz". Honourable mention to the Valence/Delft affiliated GoldFfinch with the tough reductionist techno jam "The Hidden"

Mangrove - (7:38) 122 BPM
from $1.91
Review: Frankfurt innovator Rajko Muller returns as Isolee, working his magic this time for The Drifter's rather impressive Maeve imprint; which in recent times has brought us fantastic work by Ed Davenport, Baikal and Ripperton. "Pisco" is a slow burning groove with phased marimbas that cause a hypnotic dream state, while "L5 Syndrome" dives deeper: this smooth and introverted trip is definitely suited to the early night as it is for the afterhours and reminds us of his seminal, earlier works in the nineties for imprints like Playhouse. Finally, the title track is where Muller saves the best for last; this dubby, lo-slung groove is drenched in delayed and reverberated aesthetics. More great work by one of electronic music's true innovators.

Tribalonios - (5:20) 120 BPM
from $1.91
Review: Long before he began work on the collaborative Tiger & Woods project, Marco Passarani was much loved for his solo productions, which effortlessly joined the dots between techno, electro, Italo-disco and synth-funk. Analog Fingerprints, his first solo single since 2011, is a thrilling blast from the past. Those who dug his earlier productions on Nature will love the thrilling alien synthesizer motifs, sweaty drums and throbbing acid flashes of "Quarto" - think vintage R&S Records stompers fused with wild electronic disco abandon - while "Tribalonios" feels like a long-lost new beat slammer pitched up to suit house clubs. For those who fancy a cheery chunk of synthesizer-heavy dancefloor bliss, opener "Wonky Wonky Wonky" should more than tick those boxes.

Review: Leeds tech house hero James Burnham aka Burnski helms the Constant Sound imprint which has given us some tight grooves by Laura Jones, Paolo Rocco and Diego Krause of late. Here he serves up this new Lost In Translation EP but in our opinion there's nothing to take the wrong way here. On the contrary, opening track "Circuits" is tough and sleek Ibiza ready tech house that packs a punch, "X" is rough and raw house music that's stripped back and as tracky as you like it, "Flight 723" is deep and slinky tech house executed in the same style as Dusky, Huxley or any of the Aus Music crew while the title track is the deepest not to mention darkest offering here with a generous serving of 303 acid for good measure.

Review: Zed Bias aka Dave Jones has made a welcome reappearance over the past few years with releases on Swamp 81 and D:Bridge's Exit label. As 24/7 shows, his work has provided inspiration to dub step, bass and garage producers. This is because the UK producer has an innate ability to move from mainstream friendly compositions - check the infectious MC natter on the title track - to more underground workouts like the raw rhythms on "Running Late" and the ominous "2CB", where he splices up hardcore era vocal shrieks with burning acid and a rude, raw rhythm. When Jones is on form, none of his peers can touch him.

Review: Mihai Popoviciu, from Sibiu in Romania is a name that is fairly synonymous with the whole Eastern European tech house sound these days. The talented producer has had some great releases of late on 8bit, Bedrock and Toolroom and this release marks his fourth for Hamburg powerhouse Poker Flat who present the new Fiction EP. First we start with a deep and slinky late night groove with "I Should" including sultry vocals atop making a real saucy hot impression. Next up "Twisted" is a tight and rolling cut that's perfect to lead into peak time action on a main room dancefloor. Its dub stabs, hypnotic pads and tough rhythms tick all the right boxes. Then "Interconnected" goes for some classic Chicago acid house in the vein of Adonis

Telegram - (7:44) 126 BPM
from $1.91
Review: Moscow Records boss Archie Hamilton is a long time friend of the FUSE London family, having previously contributed to a number of releases. Driven To Distraction, though, is his first FUSE outing since 2015. Interestingly, there's quite a bit of surprising variety amongst the two tracks; compare, for example, the title track's bouncy, deep house/acid house fusion. "Telegram", where wilder TB-303 acid lines and dubbed-out riffs ride an undulating, late night groove, is also rather nifty. In other words, it's a solid EP containing tracks tailor-made for different dancefloor situations.

Quim Manuel O Espirito Santo - "Senhor Doutor" (Adam Port edit) - (7:33) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Played by: Stereo Mc's
Review: For this new Keinemusik release, Berliner Adam Port is 'sprucing up the image of the guitar.' Port's rehabilitation of the six string instrument comes in the form of "Ganesha Song", the A-side of KM036. Another attempt from Port to merge peak time appeal with experimentalism and refining his method of groove. More guitars on the flip side, but this time merging Mariachi impressions and Angolan folklore. Port uses the source material of Quim Manuel O Espirito Santo while crafting his edit .Two very different approaches to get some feet on the floor, showcasing the mans knack for artistic diversity.

Review: Next up on Bristol's Futureboogie is Alex Warren aka Kiwi who has had previous releases on the likes of Optimo Music, Blase Boys Club and Sneaky Music in addition to promoting for well known London parties and clubs like Orlando Boom/Kate Boss and The Nest. The versatile producer wastes no time getting stuck in, starting out with the explosive "Orca" which features one of the most amazing arpeggios this side of "I Feel Love". There's more vintage, synth driven disco vibes on "Minke" or "Logmans Break" while the feel good nu-disco vibes of "Pygmy" are reminiscent of modern greats like Jay Shepheard or Milton Jackson.

Review: This set of Moby remixes is the latest to appear this year, in quick succession after versions of his classics appeared on Drumcode. For this release, Coyu's label has commissioned a wide range of styles. Julian Jeweil turns "Porcelain" into an almost unrecognisable acid stomper, while at the other end of the spectrum, Victor Ruiz' take on "Go" fuses its unmistakable sample with a deep, rolling techno rhythm. For a pure, unadulterated hands in the air feeling, Reinier Zonneveld's take on "Natural Blues" is the version to head for, but for more serious techno fans, there's the ominous bass of Ruiz' 'Warehouse' take on "Go" and the deeply melodic Oxia version of "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad" to contend with.

Review: Hamburg house heroes Diynamic are back with Four To The Floor 08 where they serve up some tough main room tech house to get your people moving! First up is the Afro futurist journey that is "Zulu" by Brigado Crew & Crisstiano which will appeal to fans of Innervisions or Yoruba Soul. The harbour city's favourite sons Adana Twins serve up the dark journey track "Uncompromising" which will transfix crowds with its sense of dancefloor drama. Rafael Cerato & Artbat's soulful tech house journey "Uplift" had us reminiscing about the Dennis Ferrer sound of old while finally Definition's "Pretend To Fly" is certainly geared for those hands in the air moments; expect a reaction from the crowd when this one drops. Either when that roaring vintage synth arpeggio comes creeping in or the heartfelt vocals alike.

Review: London based DJ & Production duo Dorsia are back with more jacking house shenanigans on "FM Dreams" where spangling vintage synth textures bleep and grind away in properly bumping fashion, supported by some real lush and textured moments. The club mix of "Mephi" goes for some nice retro flavour on this Italo disco homage with live drums and soaring analogue arpeggios. But the remix later by Curses is where it really shines on this slow burning EBM style makeover with dirty synth funk bass added for great measure. Also worthy of mention, remix wise; is Norwegian guy Karl Fraunhofer's one of the aforementioned "FM Dreams" where he takes it down early '80's style electronic disco avenue rather reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder or Gino Soccio.

Review: Talamanca System are the unlikely trio of Gerd Janson, Phillip Lauer of Tuff City Kids and International Feel boss Mark Barrott. Their sole release in late 2014 became one of the best selling on the Iabel's imprint. My Past Is Your Future brings them back together for a trio of magical productions that harness the power of their production skills and winks at a forthcoming album coming on the imprint this summer. Its' deep balearica cum ambient house on the wonderfully ethereal "My Past Is Your Future" and in proper ambient style there's a truly wonderful "Beatless Stars In Space" mix which is perfect for drifting. Finally the "Chukka Chukka Dance Mix" has Tuff City Kids written all over this this neon-lit retro house mix which is just totally off the hook in its own right!

Review: If you were around in 2006 and you hadn't heard Oxia's legendary anthem "Domino", you must have been sleeping under a rock! The track has certainly stood the test of time; so much so that the French producer has decided to celebrate its ten year anniversary with a series of remixes by some of the scene's current best. Some may if it 'aint broke why fix it? But rest assured that these renditions are equally worthy of your attention and come courtesy of Agoria's Sapiens imprint. They're all good, but our favourites had to be German duo; the Innervisions affiliated Frankey & Sandrino with their slinky and hypnotic take that shows us all just how you make a 'dark journey track', while m_nus alumnus Matador serves up a more hard hitting version where tough drums support adrenalised drones and Detroit style string stabs. Finally the master himself Robag Wruhme delivers the goods as always with his rather sublime "Lasika remix". The man's uncanny ability to recreate tracks that can compete with the original's quality is something to behold.

Freudenthal's "Rapax Apicem" sets the tone with an off-beat disco track that moves from detuned riffs into a gradual siren crescendo over a staccato rhythm. Kieran Holden's "3 Or Four' is a more conventional disco groover - albeit one laced in 303s - but it's only a brief break from the release's weird and wonderful sound. In:State pursues a tripped out acid direction on the aptly named "Spacer"; Dawad and Mokic's "Furious" is low-sling ebm workout and best of all, Clandestino's "Simpatico" sounds like a trippy take on Amnesia's new beat classic, "Ibiza".

Review: Jose Manuel's recent album for Music For Dreams, the mighty Excursion Africanism, brought plenty of new and refreshing outernationalism to the electronic scene, and we are pretty convinced about the fact that this is some of the best material to surface out of the label in a long while. Much to our pleasure, this is a full-service remix package, all planned out with the care and attention to detail that it deserves. First up, Islandman reworks "Babylon" into the most seductive of Balearic cuts to have graced our charts as of late, Mehmet Aslan's version of "Voices Of Africa" is a moody yet effective little house roller, the Perca dub cut of "Excursion Africanism" ticks all the tribal boxes in fine style, while Leo Mas and Fabrice's own dub version of "Hungry" is the perfect bit of outsider dance experimentation to complement this magnificently subtle EP. Recommended!

Review: Aussie balearic house larrikin Dreems returns on Montreal's Multi Culti: a label that he's actually co-owner of. The Running Mate EP like its name may suggest does indeed feature a bunch of great collaborations that result in some fantastic jams. First up he teams up with label boss Thomas Von Party on the title track where acid house meets the native sound of Down Under via its droney didgeridoo solos. He also teams up with Lithuanian-Israeli nomad DJ OI on a couple of tracks; our favourite was the latin infused slo-mo house epic "Kamp Krusty". Jagma is rumoured to be another Aussie who collaborates on home turf on "Bilbio Bush Baby" a dusty deep house track with esoteric elements.

Review: DJ duo Audiojack return to their Gruuv label with a killer house release. The title track is a classic deep affair; based on a wiry but driving rhythm and rasping percussion, it features sensuous melodies and a ponderous, seductive female vocal. "On The Road" is closer in sound to classic 20/20 Vision, with the pair deploying a detuned riff and an organ sequence over a tough, driving rhythm. Reset Robot turns "Senses" into a deep techno track, with chiming chords and a linear groove underpinning the original version's vocal sample, while on the Dubspeeka version of the same track, a more understated, stripped back approach prevails.

from $1.91
Review: Pampa offshoot Hart & Tief launched earlier in the year, via a split EP featuring tracks by Soulphiction and Mike Denhert. This time round, fellow German producers DJ Koze and Robag Wruhme are at the controls. Koze kicks things off with "Driven", a clanking, booty-shaking fusion of metallic percussion hits, resonating electronics, dub techno motifs, and minimalist textures. It feels a little like a contemporary Berlin take on early '90s Sheffield "clonk" (think Sweet Exorcist's Clonk's Coming album on Warp), which is no bad thing in our book. Wruhme's "X-mop 198" is a much more straightforward, early morning techno bubbler, albeit with similarly clanking percussion hits amongst the thumping kick drums and restless, one-note riffs.

Review: The first compilation on Koze's Pampa label is a lovingly curated affair. It starts with the left field house of Herbert's take on Lianne La Havas and Ada's r&b-infused "You & Me", as well as DJ Koze's own hymnal take on Roman Flugel's "9 Years". Other Pampa regulars like Axel Boman are well represented and he provides the ultra-mellow "In The Dust of This Planet". Equally though, Koze also provides a platform for newcomers to the fold. There's the utterly bizarre, glitch-hop of Nasrawi and Funskstorung's contributions, and at the other end of the spectrum, wide-eyed deep house from Mount Kimbie and Jamie xx & Kosi Kos' pumping indie-dance "Come We Go".

Review: French label Politics Of Dancing are back celebrating three years in the business (already!) with great releases by the likes of Lopaski, Carlos Sanchez and Two Diggers of Robsoul fame. There's a great cast on here to celebrate, with legends new school and old alike. Franck Roger's soulful, deep and uplifting "Night To Live", Berlin young gun Nick Beringer's deep swing on "Juicy Lucy", London underground hero James Barnsley's "Play The Game" and Senzala's "Spiral" too: which channels the early noughties tech house vibe of local legends D'julz or David Duriez. And there are many more highlights where they came from. Congrats!

Review: Italian dude in Los Angeles Sasha Robotti returns with a new killer release after representing on the likes of Snatch, Gold Rec and This Aint Bristol in recent times, but Dirtybird really is the label he calls home these days. On his new offering for the label "Melato Nina", Robotti goes for a dreamy and woozy groove that's perfect for dancefloor drifting at Californian desert raves or L.A. rooftop parties alike with its soaring, razor sharp bassline, ethereal pads, tight rhythm and seductive femme vocals.. On the flip, "Low Key Goddess" is a smooth and sultry deep house number that is perfect moodlighting for the warm up or the late night alike.

Review: Ghost Culture is UK producer James Greenwood who back in 2012 got singed to Phantasy on the strength of one track on Soundlcoud and the rest as they say.. is history. He's now a staple of the London label with nearly a dozen releases thus far to his name and the Nucleus EP sees the young producer hone his sound further more although it still sits in the interesting space between acid house, EBM and techno. There's a certain sense of soul and emotion throughout. Highlights on here are the bittersweet electro of "ICO130" and "NGC1275" respectively, while the deep broken beat house of "NGC1265" offers a change of aesthetic while still exploring some sublime vintage synth textures like the rest of the tracks. Great effort!

Review: To build on the critical and commercial success of his superb sophomore set, Brian D'Souza AKA Auntie Flo has decided to release a collection of reworked versions. It boasts reworks from friends and collaborators - see Mehmet Aslan's low-slung, trippy, Persian-tinged take on "Cape Malay Prayer", Dixon's Innervisions style "Beat Edit" of The Revenge's remix of "Waiting For A (Woman)", and Africaine 808's standout rework of "Dance Ritual II" - alongside revisions from well thought-of producers from across the scene. In this category you'll find a chugging, analogue-rich Mark E version of "Madla In Space", a glacial, eyes-wide-shut re-make of "Dreamer" by Throwing Shade, and a suitably elastic, warehouse-friendly house remix of "So In Love" by man of the hour Kornel Kovacs.

Review: British power duo Waze & Odyssey take a break from their always reliable W&O Street Tracks for an appearance on Edible; the Bristol based imprint by Eats Everything and Nick Harris and follows up great releases by Steve Mac and Robert Bruce aka Rhythm Masters and Merseyside's Mele.We've first got the bouncy and funked up tech house of "Down With Tha" where that very vocal loop is chopped up to perfection. Then we have got the deep and sexy tribal house groove of "Seizure" which will take you back to the turn of the millennium on this west coast style groove, that calls to mind the heyday of Hipp-E & Halo or Tyler Stadius.

Review: Although Henrik Schwarz has kept himself busy in recent years, it's been a while since he released a full-throttle dancefloor workout. This debut appearance on Gerd Janson's Running Back label - the German producer's first solo single 2013 - is arguably his most forthright and floor-friendly missive since the turn of the decade. "Not Only You" is a thumping techno stomper, where ragged, mutant, repetitive lead lines are propelled forwards by some seriously good drum machine programming. Flipside "Not You Also" offers a slightly more eccentric riff on the same blueprint, with Schwarz adding some eccentric spoken word segments and a couple of bold synth fills.

Review: Red D? What more can we say: he plays house! The Belgian maestro who runs one of the best labels in deep music alongside hombre San Soda returns: but outside of his usual haunt and for Jimpster's similarly reliable Freerange imprint with Moan The Mania EP. It's an FM synth bass attack of the much funkier variety on the title track, while NYC disco hero Eli Escobar serves up a great remix next which somehow channels a classic acid house sound reminiscent DJ Bam Bam via Plastikman: don't believe us? Well give it a listen yourself! It's more like the Red D we know on the emotive and bittersweet melodic closer "Dusk Or Dawn".

Review: Irish techno hero surprised us all with the summery and housey bumpiness of his full length opus Blinded By The Sun last year in 2016 which signalled a real change in direction for the master producer's sound for powerhouse label Hot Creations. There are now some killer remixes of some tracks from the album: first up Frankfurt legend Roman Flugel who gives "No Life" a deep and atmospheric makeover with a chunky/razor sharp bassline and trippy analogue synth atmospherics throughout: the guy's trademark really. Next up the imitable Andrew Weatherall delivers an epic and euphoric take on "Find Love" which is awash in sublime arpeggios and dusty rhythms and manages to retain the pop inflected aesthetics: those vocals work really well and add another dimension to the track...

Review: On his recent releases under the Nu alias, Rolf Fabian Laumer has giddily fused the smooth, clicking rhythms of minimalist tech-house with a range of global influences. The results have, by and large, been superb, sitting somewhere between sun-kissed warmth and haunting iciness. He's at it again on "Man O To", layering a drifting, chant-like vocal over a backing track that somehow joins the dots between cumbia, dub and tech-house. French maestro Pepe Bradock handles remix duties, first wrapping the vocal around a typically dusty, off-kilter house rhythm, before laying down a slightly tougher, stripped back Dub that's the EP's standout moment.

Review: This fine EP gathers together four previously unreleased exclusives from the latest edition of Cocoon's Dots & Pearls series, which was mixed by Markus Fix. His contribution to the EP, "Baroon" - a kind of contemporary re-imagining of the original 1988 version of The KLF's "What Time Is Love" with extra TB303 acid lines - is undoubtedly one of the highlights, alongside the ethereal melodies and early morning fuzz of Argy's intoxicating "How Late It Was, How Late". Elsewhere, Christian Burkhardt peppers a rolling house groove with boisterous but blissful stabs on "Karambolage", and Jimi Jules serves up a loose and languid take on the foreboding, stretched-out Innervisions tech-house sound ("Euphrasia").

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: UK techno legend Colin McBean returns on his always reliable Phoenix G imprint with A Good Place? A dozen servings of tough and steely house music that properly brings the funk as you'd expect from the man once behind such legendary and seminal acts like The Advent and G-Flame & Mr. G. There's also a few wonderful surprises too; such as the broken beat/nu jazz deepness of "One For The Headz" or the dusty disco loops of "Interluded (part 1)". But otherwise it really is business as usual, such as on the hi octane stormer "Nothin' (Cause We Are Strong)" with its "French Kiss" style melody, the deeply emotive "In The Sun... Finally!" or the raw and rusty dust covered jack of "G's Jazz" it's all killer no filler on here we assure you!

Sand (La Fleur remix) - (6:42) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Review: Given that the first Zoo Brazil EP dropped way back at the dawn of the millennium, it would be fair to call John Anderrson (now separated from original studio partner Johan Emmoth) something of a house veteran. Despite this vintage, he's still capable of producing tasty dancefloor treats, as "Sand" conclusively proves. The track is bouncy and groovy, with synthesized steel drum melodies - occasionally doused in echo - tumbling down over a synth bass-driven deep house rhythm. Mendo's remix is a little more percussive and tribal in feel - think big drum builds, spacey synth pulses and carnival drum hits - while La Fleur opts for a deeper, tech-tinged interpretation full of dreamy chords and percussion hits that seemingly dart across the sound space at will.
