Hirsute producers Lars Dale and Maarten Smeets have enjoyed a great 2012, dropping well thought of singles on Freerange, Dirt Crew and Murmur. Here they round off a productive 12 months with another missive for Dirt Crew. Built around a soaring, emotionally rich bluesy vocal sample, "Guess What" sounds like a more energetic take on jazz-flecked Detroit deep house, with just the right amount of old US garage flavour. "John Doe" takes a similar approach, but moves further towards strobelight-flecked late night groovery - all cut-up vocal hits, relentless organs and swinging drums. A solid package is completed by Leftside Wobble's remake of "Guess What", a deliciously deep and swirling version that demonstrates his continued development as a producer.
