Gottwood Festival's offshoot label, Gottwax, returns to action, this time showcasing the wares of artists who appeared at their 2016 weekender. Appleblim steps up first, expertly wrapping alien synthesizers around a heavy bassline and clattering machine percussion on the low-tempo thrills of "Phosphene". Leeds-based house producer Bonar Bradberry goes all Daniele Baldelli on the kosmiche chug of "Mod", before Krywald & Farrer lay down a killer jazz-house jam built around rubbery double bass and a famous old hip-house breakbeat. If that wasn't enough to get the juices flowing, the EP also includes a fantastic chunk of global deep house fusion from Heist Recordings regular Ponty Mython.
