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".

Wallwork & Nan Kola - "Fyah" (instrumental) - (4:12) 130 BPM
from $1.96
Review: It's a house-grime marriage on Bristol's Black Acrel label, from newfound dup Wallwork and Nico Lindsay, the latter of the two bringing the vocal street swagger to the beats. The title track "Facts" is a big, bad, heavy slab of percussion and bass powered by Lindsay's curbside lyricism, and it's one of those tunes that's bound to get shit tarted in the dance. This is followed by the more kinetic flow of "Fyah", where Lindsay's vocals are more minimal than its predecessor, and its rough and rugged instrumental for maximum DJ damage. Another banging addition to the Black Acrew crew - yes!

Review: !K7 Records launches a new compilation series entitled Kollections: Club which inaugurates the project. The tracklist features artists of the partner labels under the !K7 umbrella such as Turbo, AUS Music, Mobilee, Mister Saturday Night and Hypercolour. Each edition explores a different musical theme but this first installment, naturally, is all about the club! Highlights here include Midland's recent hit "Blush", Maya Jane Coles' funky afterhours tech house jam "Not Listening" (from a few years ago), KiNK's roaring remix of Kerrier District's (Luke Vibert) "Techno Disco" and Lauer's recent feelgood number "Killian" showing off his knack for classic retro vibes like no other.

Magic Window - (5:25) 120 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Former Hercules & Love Affair frontwoman Kim Ann Foxman is back with "It's You That Drives Me Wild" an infectious, pop-inflected, '90s style progressive house epic that ticks all the right boxes. Her vocals are great and as catchy as always. There's a handy extended mix for serious DJ use and a killer remix by none other than Maya Jane Coles, working her dreamy deep house magic fabulously as always. Other featured original tracks are "Give It All You Got", which carries on with said progressive house tendencies with rich melodies, soothing pads and a bouncy groove while "Magic Window" brings the power of the breaks beneath some sick acid, reminiscent of Frontside or Uberzone. It all starts to sound a bit reminiscent of Sasha & Digweed's Northern Exposure series, which is fine for our nostalgia!

Review: Hamburg house hero Solomun presents a couple of dozen remixes compiled between 2009 - 2015 and he's definitely been a busy guy between running the Diynamic label and being quite amusing on Boiler Room Tulum. He takes his deft hand to remixes for pop acts such as Lana Del Rey's "West Coast", Foals "Late Night" and Editors "Our Love" through to Hamburg locals Kollektiv Turmstasse's Berlin legend Paul Kalkbrenner's "Cloudrider" and Tiga & Audion's killer "Let's Go Dancing". And yes his remix of Noir & Haze's "Around" does indeed makes an appearance as well.

Review: Marc Romboy's esteemed tech house imprint has reached its 77th release? You bet! And it goes out all guns blazing this time around with a massive compilation with some great tracks, new and old, by the likes of Robert Babicz, Guy Mantzur, Wehbba and Stephan Bodzin. There are some pretty kick ass remixes on offer too by the likes of Adam Port, Adriatique, Nick Curly and Petar Dundov. Highlights? Head honcho Romboy's rendition of OCH's "Time Tourism", Ibadan boss Jerome Sydenham's ecstatic "Systematic Dub" and Technasia's druggy and tunnelling odyssey "Hold Me".

Review: To mark the twentieth anniversary of the foundation of his label, James Ruskin has put together this massive compilation. It includes long-term friends and associates of the label - like Oliver Ho, Regis and Luke Slater - as well as newer additions to the roster, including Lakker and Rommek. Apart from uniting artists from different generations, the compilation also showcases the label's various hues; from the broken beats and intricate rhythms of Ruskin and Regis' O/V/R project and the hypnotic soundscapes of Lakker's "Orange" to the trace stabs and 10 tonne kicks of Regis' "Party Spoiler Too" and the chaotic industrial rhythms on Truss' "Wanastow", this compilation offers to newcomers an invaluable introduction to Blueprint, or to long-standing fans an indispensable reminder of why the label is unique.

Review: Munich's Benjamin Frohlich is back on his own beloved Permanent Vacation imprint which he founded back in 2006 with Tom Bioly. On the Rude Movements EP he gives us four servings of wonderfully deep nu disco. On the A side is the soaring and cosmic sci fi odyssey of "Holloway" with its glorious arpeggio. Also "Spitting Image" gets that classic early 80's Chicago proto house sound happening with a pure booming 808 workout that makes a wicked DJ tool. On the flip "Amos" is a sick and gnarly acid house grinder which is perfect to up the ante at 3 AM and get the kids dancing.

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.

from $1.96
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.

Second offering "What They Hear" is like "La La Land" for 2016, with its drug fuelled monologue and dark tunnelling groove drawing you into the void for one wild night indeed!

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: Talk about a transformation; former Minus mainstay and minimal stalwart Marc Houle goes from ping-pong beats and hiccuping rhythms to this deep, 80s-referencing house release. " Don't Want To Watch You Read" is a mesmerising affair, centred on a booming bass and featuring a mysterious vocal that is similar to the one that featured on Brian Kage's record on FXHE earlier this year. There is a reference to Houle's minimal past on the rushing sirens of the Golden Filter remix of "Read", but in the main this is a radical departure. The title track is a pulsing electronic disco affair, while the Red Axes remix of "Read" is an epic, EBM-fueled reshape.

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: Several Definitions, despite what the name may insinuate; is not a group rather one lone Swiss producer known as Jeremy. Appearing here for esteemed Berlin label Still Vor Talent, he presents four servings of tech house goodness on the You Are Not Alone EP. The original version of "Alone" is a dark and melodic journey track packed with the right amount of suspense and drama that'd make even the Life & Death camp up their game. The remix by Hatzler stays true to the original, but just gives it that extra amount of 'oomph' to play at the peak time slot. "Esmeralda" is also worthy of mention; this swirling and hypnotic trance odyssey is reminiscent of a more classic dance music style and is surefire magic on the dancefloor.

Review: After a series of EPs for Get Physical, German DJ / producer Emanuel Satie turns his hand to
reworking some remixes on the renowned label. He turns the Coyu take on Smash TV's "Mathew Pervert" into a bleepy, jittery acid house number, while his rework of the MANDY remix of Roland Leesker's "My Warehouse" is an extended, pulsing groove, featuring pitch-bent vocals. The compilation also shines a light on some excellent remixes from other artists. Most notably, Tuff City Kids' take on Roach Motel's "The Night" is a thing of beauty, with the pair retaining the originalism classic swing and seductive flutes, adding in some tasteful keys.

Review: As sure as night follows day, every year Kompakt releases an installment of the Total series. Now at its sixteenth volume, the compilation still manages to bring together the best bits from the Cologne label's catalogue. From the dreamy textures and spiky off rhythms of Kaytlin Aurelia Smith's take on The Field's "Reflecting Lights" to the woozy vocals and pitter pattering break beats on Weval's "I Donat Need It" to the stripped back but evocative house of Patrice Baumel's take on Blond:ish's "Endless Games" and the throbbing techno reshape of Coma's "Lora", the full range of the Kompakt emotional spectrum is audible here.

Review: Originally released back in 2012 "Buya" remains one of the most successful crossover house tracks. This is due to Black Coffee's inspired fusion of Toshi's haunting vocals with an emotive atmospheric house groove that shimmers and swaggers with majestic poise. Now Get Physical has commissioned remixes of this sultry gem. Loco Dice's 'Kliptown Love' radio edit adds a techy bassline and some quirky percussion while the German DJ's 'remix' is a tighter affair one that is laced with bubbly acid. Da Capo takes the track into mellow house mode while label owners M.A.N.D.Y close the release with a chant-heavy track whose bass references early 90s progressive house.

Review: Maya Danon has been a familiar face on Tel Aviv's alternative electronic scene for the last decade. Even so, this EP for Robbie Headman's Relish label is still her first. There's much to admire throughout, starting with the restless analogue synths, thudding drums and alien electronics of title track "Mad Hatter". Similarly impressive is the fuzzy "Nina", where fizzing electronic stabs and woozy melody lines ride a killer bassline, while the sparser "Waiting For Simon" is undoubtedly the EP's most out-there and experimental moment. Autarkic and Marc Pional remix "Mad Hatter", with the latter's skewed, spaced-out analogue deep house interpretation particularly impressing.

Review: Resoe aka Denis Uprock's Baum Records are back with Leftover on the Mandelbaum EP and providing some sublime and immersive dub techno textures here. Starting out with the rolling and glacial wall of sound that is "Lust", he then provides something more energetic on the dubby yet ethereal groove of "Static Infinite". He delves deeper into the void on the lovely "Haint Blue", which echoes and resonates away gloriously while the hypnotic closer "Segment" gives a nod to fellow homeboys Echocord on this functional dub techno groove.

Review: This is Chymera's second EP in 2016, and follows a relatively fallow period in the last few preceding years. That said, Episode shows that the Irish producer has not lost his melodic touch. The title track sees emotive melodies surge up over a rolling rhythm and robust kicks, while on "7 Hours", he reverts to a more earthy approach. Despite this, the arranging is superb, with resonating beats and nagging percussion supporting a surging bass and warm acid lines. Finally, there's "Rust"; with its breath-taking synth drops and powerful bass tones, it brings to a close another majestic, melodic release from this talented, idiosyncratic producer.

Review: Teched-out house excursions delivered to you by the Shmlss duo here, courtesy of the Nein label from Germany. This material is more than capable of surpassing DJ tool use, and "Adriatic Swing", for instance, is full of enough wonder and sonic mystique to render it totally accessible to the listener as well as the dancer. The same goes for "4am At The Kebap Shop", a leftfield slice of subtle acid with a Balearic lift at its core, followed by the more progressive tones of "Trippy Forest". Remixes from Bawrut and William Earl twist these tracks onto new heights, the latter of which stands out in particular thanks to its rugged beat muscle and placid atmospherics. Lovely.

Review: Next up on Offenbach institution Connaisseur is Perugia, Italy's Francesco Chiocci with "Black Sunrise" which gets a stellar bunch of remixes this time around. Olderic's remix really nails the label's sound perfectly on this deep and slinky progressive house rendition. Next up is Venice's Lehar whose makeover retains the wonderful vocals from the original and crafts this into one of those epic dark journey tracks that are all the rage at the moment. Musumeci also appears here; his version also walks the darker, left hand path but has more adrenalin and bounce to it; but just wait for that Life & Death style melody to come rushing in. Finally Cologne's Peter Pardeike provides the most uplifting version here with his slinky tech-infused groove creating something that you can really drift too.
