Thrills (John Talabot Early edit) - (6:11) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.05
Review: Juan Miguel Bassols first pricked our consciousness way back in 2012, when he delivered a fine debut under the JMII moniker on 100% Silk. He's not released all that much since, making this first appearance on Hivern Discs his highest profile EP to date. There's naturally much to admire amongst the three original productions present, from the stripped-back but melodious acid house shuffle of "Thrills", to the wild lead lines and chugging bottom end of the analogue synth-heavy proto-house snap of "Tightbrass". Christian S provides two tasty reworks of that cut, including a dark and seductive "Angry Dub". A woozy, dreamier John Talabot re-edit of "Thrills" completes an excellent package.

Review: Robert Hood's second album as Floorplan sees him hone in on disco, gospel and house influences to create a proper big room collection. As the driving, disco-loop heavy "Spin" and the ridiculously catchy "Music" demonstrate, the Detroit producer has stripped Floorplan of its techno influences. However, this does't mean he has simplified his message; accompanying the religious vocals on "The Heavens & The Earth" is a hypnotic organ riff, the slightly less pious "Good Thang" is a riotous siren-heavy jacker in the Reese tradition, and "He Can Save You", with its dense primal rhythm is reminiscent of Green Velvet as his madcap best. Hood may have chosen God, gospel and disco over the minimal nation, but he still knows how to lead his people onto the dancefloor.

Destined - (7:24) 120 BPM

Review: Daniel Berman has decided to re-launch his Bergerac imprint, following an extended hiatus. Clearly, the Berlin-based producer wanted something big to kick things off again, and his own "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger" is certainly sizeable. Fundamentally a cheery, cut-up disco-house record, it's lifted into potential anthem territory by some choice siren sounds and a series of Syclops-like synth doodles. It's certainly his strongest material for some time, and will be everywhere over coming months. The bonus tracks are pretty darn tasty, too; "Jazzy House Extension" does exactly what it says on the tin - with extra jazz madness - while "Destined" is just plain odd. Strange as it is, it's also rather good.

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".

Creation (Psychemagik Rework) - (8:18) 124 BPM
from $2.05
Review: Earlier this year, Erol Alkan and Richard Norris re-launched their Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve partnership after four years away. Hot on the heels of that single, Delicious Girl comes Creation. Intriguingly, there's no original version present, but rather two remixes from Psychemagik, whose opening Dub re-imagines it as a chunky, bongo-laden slab of fluttering late night house, complete with dreamy, stretched-out organ chords, watery electronics and drifting female vocal samples. The similar sounding Rework includes more of the original song, and therefore the folksy, Kate Bush-on-valium vocals. The package is completed by a fresh remix of "Delicious Girl" by London psychedelic rock combo Teeth Of The Sea, whose eccentric but hugely entertaining revision sounds like Studio after a bad acid trip.

Review: For those of you who can't make it, you can still enjoy these very tracks that will be thrashed on San Francisco institution Dirtybird's US tour this summer. This is the third edition of their Summer BBQ compilation titled Secret Sauce and it features an all-star cast. Starting things off in spectacular fashion with Chicago house legend Marshall Jefferson teaming up with L.A's Doorly on the wicked "Neanderthal', there's the wonky, bassbin rattling deepness of label mainstay Christian Martin (with Ardalan) on "Flight of The Pterodactyl" and rising star Justin Jay's pop-inflected epic "Broke The Law" featuring a bit of help from mates Sascha Robotti, Henry Was and vocals by Josh Taylor.

Review: Chris Spero and Alex Jones really found their sound a few years ago when teaming up as Dense & Pika. Those first couple of releases on their eponymous imprint are the stuff of legend now, not to mention the ones that followed up on Scuba's esteemed Hotflush imprint. For the Calf EP, it's served up courtesy of Adam Beyer's Drumcode, a fitting home for their tough and functional techno tools. Wasting no time messing around with the peak time destroyer 'Edging Forward" which chugs through the audio spectrum like a steamtrain, there's more adrenalin to be found on the dusty and stripped industrialism of "Drag 'N Drop" which is reminiscent of the Klockworks or the Fachwerk sound. We also enjoyed the Chicago hard house sounding title track, which gives an obvious nod to Windy City legends like Relief Records or Kne' Deep.

Review: Luke Vibert donned the Kerrier District moniker last year on the tremendous Kerrier District 4 album on Hypercolour, and here are the remixes. He's done alright; look at who he's got on board. First there's the Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer remix of "Sexspurt", which is long and as liquid and tripped out as you'd imagine. Bulgarian hardware maverick delivers the goods always on his funky, fierce and soulful rendition of "Techno Disco", it's quite brilliant actually. Finally the now legendary Rene Pavlowitz dons the Head High alter ego for a slamming warehouse rave makeover of "Come On Kerrier".

Review: Italian duo Olderic and Musumeci are at the controls on this sixth celebration of Compost's long running Black Label Series. This digital edition of the compilation includes 15 unmixed cuts from the label's archives, including a trio of previously unheard "special edits" from the duo, plus a typically atmospheric DJ mix. As you'd expect, much of the material inhibits the no man's land between deep house and tech-house, with occasional nods towards more disco-leaning fare (see Space Coast's loose and languid re-make of The OhOhOh's "Wu"), and baggy Balearic treasure (DJ Yellow & Flowers & Sea Creatures). Look out for tasty contributions from DJ T (a rock-solid rework of Phreak Plus One) and Andre Lodemann (whose remix of Rafael De Cruz is sublime).

Review: Hamburg's Diynamic are back with some pretty fierce tracks on Four To The Floor 06, quite a departure from the label's usual deep house sound. Pig&Dan's "Growler" is a storming peak time techno weapon with a furious beat, slamming synth stabs and a big drop: all you need really. Israeli progressive house hero Guy Mantzur appears too with "Trees Of Eden" which goes more for the Life & Death style moody and melodic journey track style. Brazil's ANNA serves up a driving, tunnelling and restrained groove on cruise control with "Odd Concept" while Jonas Rathsman serves up one of the most epic arpeggiations of the year on his monster "Cobalt".

Review: More dreamy deep house for inner city rooftops again courtesy of Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekay's always impressive All Day I Dream imprint. At the controls this time is NYC stalwart Lauren Ritter with the Lark EP. The title track has all the hallmarks of an ADID track; mesmerising and crystalline pads, xylophone melodies and emotive strings that distill the best influences of German imprints like Kompakt or Dial into it. So does "Swoon", this is the kind of bittersweet headrush that someone like Michael Mayer would unleash on you mid set. "Murmur" incorporates elements of Romanian style minimal with its big rolling bassline and intricate rhythm arrangements complete with hypnotic elements. Great stuff!

Review: On German producer and Aleph label founder Aera's latest release, the coalescing of influences from the past forty years of electronic music is audible. From the early electronic-style noises that warble over the bubbly acid pulse on the title track to the deeper than deep house of "Krystal Close" and the Mathew Jonson-sounding micro-trance melodies of "Keeping the Book", Running Hot is nothing if not adventurous and diverse. Innervisions also deserves praise for its choice of remixer; Steve Rachmad is not the most immediate name one would associate with the German label, but he does a fine job here, turning "Keeping the Book" into a deep, pulsing techno track, accentuating the original version's beautiful spacey-ness.

Review: The first Audion album in ten years shows that Matthew Dear's project has lost none of its raw ferocity. This is audible on opening track "Dem", where a droning groove ensnares wooden, clunky percussion and haunted vocals in its whirlpool-like cascade and then on the gated, distorted gnawing rhythms of "Destroyer". On other occasions, Dear sounds more comfortable flirting with classic sounds; "There Was a Button" is perfectly adequate, acid-led trancey techno from the 90s and "Gut Man Commeth" revisits the edgy minimalism of early Hawtin. However, no matter what influences he mines, there is a hyperactively jittery sound aesthetic at play, audible as much on the slow-motion hoover-led grind of "Bob the Builder" as it is on the rickety minimalism of "Napkin".

Review: Thomas Von Party's always reliable Multi Culti imprint presents Moon Faze II featuring a selection of his label's current roster. Tel Aviv's favourite nu-disco/rock crossover act Red Axes are back and boy are we happy about that: they appear here with "Boosha Gdola" a sleazy and slow burning groove with a bleep bassline and soaring synths that create some serious dancefloor movement, guaranteed. Label favourite, Australia's Dreems also appears joining up with Peret Mako for a sleek acidified remix of Zsou's "Admiral Byrd". Label head honcho Von Party himself steps up to it on the exotic and esoteric slow-mo groove of "Cobra Kush" featuring Naduve. Finally DJ Ground offers up the dreamy and mesmerising "Dolmenzoo" with its hazy, African inspired journey that will appeal to Crosstown Rebels fans equally.

Review: Little did we know that the excellent Freerange label were cooking up a follow-up EP by Clavis, the production duo consisting of Manuel Tur and Adrian Hoffmann, who deal in a very specific brand of techy house. Much like their debut EP for the label, "Alcine" rolls its pseudo tribal drums at a steady pace among dissolving melodies, and "Mangogul's Dream" offers a similar yet even more minimalistic take on the genre. The dub version of the latter is what really gets our juices flowing, though, because we're deeply into that swollen bass and well-rounded beats...not to mention that echoing cascade of percussion that spills so well over the tough groove.

Review: Bristol's Billy Kenny is up on our charts this week with a mighty fine appearance indeed, and a rather special one, too. This is because the Bristol kingpin steps out of his own This Ain't Bristol label, and lands firmly on Food Music with something a little more house-oriented than what we're usually used to seeing from him. "Horn Thing", for instance, although drenched in a considerably UK sort of coating, is a hard-edged house tune for peak time spinning, and the same can be said about "It's Alive", another bleep-ridden UK house chugger that'll likely appeal to the bass heads, too. "I Luh U", instead, is a different kind of beast; the majority of the tune is taken over by more cinematic sonics before dropping to break-ridden, four-to-the-floor rhythm.

Review: It's hard to believe that it's been a decade since the release of "Detroit". To celebrate double figures, its author has released a sprawling "10 Year Anniversary mix", alongside the original version. The party doesn't end there though, and Dirtybird has also selected some impressive producers to rework it. Unsurprisingly, Marc Houle's take is a slinky, stripped back affair, while Octave One's interpretation mines the kind of tribal, percussive sound that the Burden brothers have made their own over the past two decades. Fused with the original version's brooding synths, it makes for a intoxicating techno groove. Finally, Visionquest bring the curtain down with a laid back, groovy house take on this modern-day classic.

Review: One seriously moody and emotive progressive house offering courtesy of Berlin's Florian Kruse and featuring the velvety voice of Hendrik Burkhard on "The Ground". The remix by Joris Voorn gets even deeper, darker and tripped out for some real early evening dancefloor drama. Second original track "Going Against The Grain" is one perfectly executed journey track of the darker persuasion (wonky melodies assured) whose bittersweet tendencies will pull at the heartstrings as much as it'll move your feet.

Lucky, their sporadic Selected Label Works compilation series can help fill in the gaps. Volume Five contains a wealth of tasty treats, from the wonky late night throb of Dolkraut's mesmerizing "Fire", and progressive house influenced dancefloor bliss of TB's "City Girl", to the Orbital style intelligent techno of Daniel Bortz and Sacha Sibler, via the bass-heavy wonkiness of Lake People. There's also another chance to savour Session Victim's loose, warm and groovy rework of Midnight Magic, and a tops-off-friendly chunk of Sound Factory era pump from Tuff City Kids.

Review: One third of Innervisions, one half of Ame and The Howling and one of the all round modern greats of techno and house music. Under his own name for the first time, Frank Wiedemann unleashes more sure-fire and emotive dancefloor intelligence on The Moorthon EP. Starting out with the soulful tech house bounce of "Moorthon II" he gets more on the vibe you know him for ie: moody and epic with "Kleiner Vogel" with its dark strings, wonky synth leads and adrenalised rhythm. But he saves the best for last on the bittersweet techno-soul of "Moorthon I" featuring some immaculate programming and truly stunning synth textures from a true master of the sound.

Review: The latest venture from John Talabot's Hivern Discs label is the Parple project, a seemingly anonymous endeavour that has a lot in common with James Holden and his Border Community label. "Sacred" sees beats double up and shift in and out of time as airy melodies are fused with moody bleeps to create a dense but atmospheric style. "Ritual" sees Parple use a similar method and the wind chimes and tonal frequency shifts sound more compatible. However, on this occasion, despite the groove sounding pulsing and the rhythm more functional, the track's ethereal qualities prevail.

Knee On Belly - (6:05) 122 BPM
from $2.05
Review: Ah, it's finally the summer and where would we be without a DJ Koze record to accompany those long, open-air parties? The title track is a lush, string-filled affair that chugs along slowly. It's made all the more trippy by a female vocal whose narrative begins with the claim that 'everyone is experimenting with ecstasy' and who goes on to talk about lies and meditation. If that sounds too cosmic for you, then we recommend that you check out "Knee on Belly". It could be the German artist's version of '90s disco house, but realized against a gentle minimal house backdrop.

Review: Ruede Hagelstein's "Footprints" was an instant hit when it hit our charts earlier this year, but we would never expect anything less from both this exciting newcomer and Berlin's mythical Watergate label. This time, however, he's joined by a number of different producers for a remix frenzy of his popular tune, and it starts with The Drifter's summery, dubbed-out version that is simply magnetic. Hagelstein drops a remix of his own tune, too, and it's an all-out hypnotic affair with full steam ahead on the minimalism, whereas Can Love Be Synth drop a beautiful glow of romanticism and '80s flair on their version. The dub, as you'd expect, takes the original to a moodier, more beat-heavy terrain.

Review: With EPs for Sounds Of Sumo, Hot N Heavy and Tumble Audio to Daniel Evans-Jones' Majora project, the Bristol producer inaugurates the Service label with two originals and a slew of remixes. The lead, title cut brims with tropical, dancehall vibes and cut up vocals which Hagan, Roska and Tony Quattro all take turns in remixing. Hagan reduces his mix with healthy 'wub wub' bounce, while Roska reworks the drum programming for a groovy drum track - Quattro on the other hand goes large in his remix exhuming the Baile Funk. The alterative tune "Moves On" is deeper and staccato driven with urban vocals, some detuned, sharpening its edge. This is remixed by Killjoy who turns in something spacious and shuffling - clak clak.

Mutter (Beatless) - (10:29) 86 BPM
from $2.05
Review: Gerd Janson's Running back taps into some local talent courtesy of Stuttgart DJ / producer Konstantin Sibold. The title track is a classic slice of German techno; it has shades of early Force Inc thanks to its tranced out chords and pace - cruising along just below 130bpm for its ten-minute duration - and the raw energy of Tresor in the shape of its gnarly acid line. The musical elements sound much more pronounced on the beatless version, with the chords assuming a slightly menacing edge. However, this is really all about the original version, a tripped out, hypnotic that digs deep into the German electronic music psyche.

Review: Master magician Lorenz Brunner is back as Recondite on Innervisions serving up three perfectly executed dark journey tracks for maximum dancefloor drama. Starting out with the brooding mystery groove of "Osa" whose sombre yet razor sharp melodics guide you down the abyss, he's then on to "Andever" which is a bit more uplifting with some bass driven deepness and haunting bell melodies reminiscent somewhat of the classic sound of German imprint Dial. Finally "Nick" hammers the message home in esoteric and transcendental fashion with its epic and wandering arpeggio backed by trancey atmosphere engineered for total dancefloor bliss.

Review: Wolf Music doesn't release many albums, but when they do, the resulting set is invariably superb. Familiar Circles, Casino Times' long awaited first full length, is certainly quietly confident, with the British house duo delivering a range of hazy, evocative cuts shot through with a hazy sense of loved-up positivity. While breezy, Balearic deep house is their go-to sound - and there's much of that evident throughout - the album also includes nods to "Belfast"-era Orbital (the shuffling electro/deep house hybrid "Oddity"), early Funkineven (the jumpy, modern boogie bliss of "What (Miracle Beat)"), drowsy ambience ("Transit"), and early '90s style intelligent techno (the psychedelic electronics, ambient house melodies and fleeting acid lines of closer "Foundations (End)").
