Review: French soulful techno expert Agoria returns to his Sapiens imprint with yet more surefire dancefloor drama. "Boomerang" is a fitting name for this woozy and hypnotic cut that features a trippy sub bass snarl that veers to and from you within its sonic spectrum. We are then presented with the trilogy that is "Directory". The first part being a brooding sonic landscape that reaches near psychedelic moments, likewise the second is also a modular based drone piece. The third and final part of the puzzle is without doubt the most avant -garde and passive aggressive - calling to mind the work of Thomas Ankersmit or Morton Subotnick. This fine release follows up a real winning streak for the label in recent times courtesy of scene favourites Eagles & Butterflies, Dino Lenny and fellow Frenchman Oxia to name but a few.

Review: What a trip it's been for Alix Perez and his 1985 imprint. Continuously pushing new concepts, sounds and artists, it's swiftly become one of the most exciting and crucially stylised imprints in the beat game, no question. Here Alix treats us to an early taster of his label's next big release with this one track treat. Returning to his soulful roller signature, it's black velvet number that purrs and slinks in such an understated yet mean way. Timeless Perez.

Review: Steve Eyre and Sam Souls are Andrenachrome, a production duo from Lincoln who has previously put out a string of solid EPs on Cut La Roc and Mario Di Stefano's Rocstar Recordings imprint. On "Wall of Silence", their latest missive for the label, the twosome continues to combine distinctive, alternative rock style vocals with deep, woozy and melodious house grooves. The track, which is available in both Vocal and Instrumental variations, is propelled forwards by a superb rising and falling bassline and sturdy by swinging drums. While not everyone will appreciate the vocal style, there's no denying the lusciousness of the spacey chords, gentle melodies and head-in-the-clouds electronics.

Review: London's Chapter 24 present the second full length release of young Frenchman Anton Dhouran entitled 'The Myth Of Tarae'. Said to be born into a family of filmmakers, this rising star from Paris has been showcasing his talent at crafting cinematic dance tracks in recent times on tastemaker labels such as Hamburg's Diynamic and Nick Warren's Soundgarden.There is undoubtedly a cinematic feel throughout this collection of captivating tracks - and indeed every one tells a story. What really stands out on the album is that it captures a wide variety of textures and atmospheres, moods and grooves. Rest assured that keeping in mind with the label's modus operandi, there are some strong dancefloor oriented numbers that will have you moving your feet - as much as they will stimulate your mind. At the tender age of only 24, Dhouran demonstrates an exemplary musicality which is well beyond his years. The album also sees him mature with a much greater perspective beyond the dancefloor. He has the ability to delve deep into the exotic - through complex and classical instrumentation, while weaving highly engineered futurist electronica.

Still just as breath-taking, hair-raising and prang-triggering, this never fails to blast holes in the floor. One of many out-and-out Bad Company classics.

Untunnel - (8:45) 125 BPM

Review: Issued earlier this year on Trilogy Tapes, these two tracks now get a digital release on Bass Clef's own label. The UK producer has been making sub-aquatic electronic music for over a decade, and this two-tracker sees him go deep once again. "Interform" is his interpretation of Chain Reaction's dub techno, with a gut-busting bass underpinning hazy, smoky textures. On "Untunnel", he ventures into the outer limits; loose drums and percussion provide a more linear approach, but the listener gets the sense that the arrangement could splinter at any moment, its precarious, edgy nature adding to the sense of urgency at its heart.

Review: Norway's Geir Jenssen is one of ambient's true pioneers. A man who has done nothing but good to the scene, stretching its boundaries across different sounds and harmonic landscapes since the early 90s. He's so renowned, in fact, that even his albums from the post 00's era are worthy of represses, such as this 2002 outing on London's Touch, the solitary and immersive Shenzhou. It is an impossible task to condense its freeform structures into words, a wide-eyed horizon that blends field recordings and reverb-laden pools of sonics into neatly executed frameworks. Rich with drama and suspense, it glides elegantly from beginning to end. This is all about feeling and mood - it's what Biosphere thrives in. If there was ever a runner up to Vangelis for the Blade Runner, we'd have chosen this guy.

Review: Much like the works of contemporaries Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, Burt Friedman's work has been a pillar of the modern German electronic sound. Forever exploring the lines between outernational music and more rigid hardware structures, the artist has always remained true to his vision. First coming through with sparse, explorative rhythms back in the late 80s, he has racked up an incredible amount of releases by now, many of them through his own Nonplace imprint. This new anthology is the first official compilation of his most defining work, and comes as an absolute breath-taker given the vastness of the catalogue. Spanning the best of his works between 1980 and 2017, the comp gives us a vivid image of his steady progression as a sound engineer, constantly dipping and diving between tribal percussions, technoid ballads and dub-filtered downtempo. If you've come here looking for the truth, then this release should come before anything else. Unmissable and highly recommended.

Review: German ambient musician Niklas Rehme-Schlueter began releasing music under the name Cass in 2012, creating loop-based compositions with pianos, strings, and other acoustic instruments, as well as field recordings. His new EP for James 'Fucking' Friedman's Throne Of Blood follows up a tremendous album with Dusseldorf's Wolf Muller and you can be sure that "Red Atlantic" is a blissful nu-gaze excursion following in the German tradition of Tangerine Dream, Ulrich Schnauss and Thorsten Quaeschning. The remix up next by man of the moment: Tel Tel Aviv's Autarkic takes it into exotic indie-dance territory and will appeal to fans of Multi Culti and I'm A Cliche. Speaking of which, the label boss of the latter Cosmo Vitelli delivers an absolutely electric remix of "The Voynich Manuscript" up next, which channels a gutsy EBM type of vibe which is in stark contrast to the dreamy and chilled-out balearica of the original.

Review: You can always rely on Hamburg heroes Dessous for sexy and slinky deep house that's perfect mood lighting for the late night. This time the groove comes courtesy of one Chocky - the name comes from the John Wyndham novel of the same name, in which an alien utilises frequencies and sounds to communicate to the world. The UK producer appears for the label a second time this year, in addition to releases on Ears Have Eyes and Big Bait Recordings. "Double Dip" is tough yet smoove east coast house in the tradition of Karizma or Mr. V. "Organism" is the kind of hypnotic and dubby deepness you'd expect to hear on sister label Poker Flat - but it's equally at home here, if we do say ourselves! "Soul Alive" with its mesmerising chord progressions would make even Jimpster stand up and notice and the funked up and dusted down disco loops of "Playtime Dub" will appeal to all Robsoul and I'm A House Gangster fans.

Review: Ibiza based Sirsounds are back with a cracker of a release by Corrado Bucci: the Italian DJ extraordinaire and production whizz has worked with labels like Local Talk, Wonderwheel, Compost and BBE Recordings. Bucci's original version of "Sumthin" is sensual and emotive deep house for the late night with gorgeous vocals, creamy Rhodes, sexy sax and tight rhythms. Dessous staple from Hamburg Vincenzo delivers a more hypnotic rendition, featuring one seriously infectious chord progression. Italian production Duo CRS+BRG (Cristian Addabbo and Giorgio Piermattei) show their love and influence from modern deep house by delivering a peak time version - which for sure will be in the playlists of many. Bucci's music has a melodic vein and fuses his signature symphonic sound with afro-latin, jazz and funk vibes. He also explored new musical territories with the inclusion of live instruments and a groove that's out of the ordinary.

The Hustle Parisian - (8:58) 125 BPM
from $1.99
Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a hot and sticky, two-track collaboration between 10-piece Parisian disco-funk outfit Cotonete and disco-house survivor Dimitri From Paris. "Parribean Disco", a Latin-tinged take on Caribbean disco rich in expansive jazz piano solos (think "Strings of Life", and you're close), pressure-building grooves and rousing horn lines, is undoubtedly the star of the show, though the high octane and fiendishly heavy disco-funk slammer that follows, "The Hustle Parisian" - all "Spank" electric piano stabs, mazy synth solos and layered trumpet riffs - arguably boasts more dancefloor weight. Both are superb, though, and sound like peak-time anthems in waiting.

Review: Rewind to 2000: Tim Eliot delivers his third album In A Far Future and he wasn't being sassy with the title. Still sounding experimental, innovative and ahead of the curve today, every track still has complete resonance with what's happening to this day. "Circular Moduls" jitters spasmodically like a Phizzy B-side, "Macromechanism" foretold the bleak terrain that Shackelton would conquer years later while "Acid Generator" would still smash either tech or jump-up floors such its absurdity and funk. Almost 18 years later, and reissued just weeks ahead of his forthcoming album on Invisible, this still sounds future as hell.

Review: Manchester label Natural Sciences launches its new sub label Dolphin Traxx with a sterling effort by Durham-based D. Futers. As the label best describe themselves it's "a pounding two tracker of aqueous goo, molecular body deposits and corrosive laser stains, pressed up loud + harddd (sic)." First we have "I Care" which is a gorgeous serving of feelgood classic house reminiscent of classic Strictly Rhythm or King Street with its pitched up vocals and uplifting pianos over a soulful groove. There is a bit of a curveball then with the liquid junglist roller "Never Givin' Up" which likewise is brazen in its retroverted style tributes; think early Peshay or Alex Reece.

Review: Damon Wild and Dave 'Function' Sumner have been close allies since the early 90s, so it's no surprise that Sumner has managed to persuade Wild to release his first album in 13 years on his Infrastructure label. Cosmic Path lives up to its title and sounds like an intergalactic journey on a starship. By turns menacing, thanks to the hyper speed bleeps of "Red", tripped out (check the stepping "Distant Carrier" ) and functional - the drum-heavy "Marslander" and the aptly named "Sparse" are among the finest drum tracks that he has produced - this album proves that the veteran New York artist remains at the very top of his game.

Review: The fourth instalment in the Dead Architect series is a proper heads-down affair. It starts off with label owner Developer delivering "Utero", a visceral, pulsing groove encased in concrete kick drums. Rhomb, who has released a few EPs on Modularz, also keeps the focus on peak-time sounds with the rave stabs and subterranean bass of "Helix", which unfolds over a galloping groove. Rebekah maintains the intensity levels with the chain mail percussion and relentless rhythm of "Reflex", while CNCPT, another artist who has released before on the US imprint drops "Frazil". While it's not as fast-paced as other tracks, its dark tones and rasping hi-hats bring this split release to a close with a menacing undercurrent.

Review: Jamie Russell's Sneaker Social Club is one of those labels that just don't give a damn. We love them for that. Across its catalogue, you'll find an array of releases spanning from Bass Clef to Neil Landstrumm, and all sorts of continuous newcomers, such as this latest EP from the unknown Dream Cycle. It ain't really house and it ain't really tech, but somewhere in between, peppered and smoked with just the right amount of UK bass sensitivity. To give you a taster, "Dream 93" is a resurrection of the jungle and breakcore movement, stripped-back and repurposed for the 2017 mentality, while "Start Like It's Hot" takes some lessons from peeps like Leo Anibaldi - pure deep house magic! "Paradise State" is another magnetic jungle reinterpretation, and Them & Us' remix of "Absolutely" floats the waves drone and ambient with a touch of class rarely heard these days. Most importantly, Dream Cycle seems to be all about movement and progression. Two winning tactics.

Review: Duran Duran Duran aka Ed Flis is in the middle of a resurgence. The US producer, who first made a name during the break core scene of the mid-00s, released his first album in seven years in 2017 and now he follows it with this EP on French label Tripalium. While "Terror City" borrows from break core's shattered, splintered percussion, it is more restrained, as he lays down a scuffled, wiry rhythm. There is another surprise on "Sinking About You"; Flis works eerie textures and upbeat chords around a stepping groove and the kind of gasping, growling bass that sounds like it was recycled from a Basic Channel record.

Review: Mutant electronica from the darkest depths of Somerset. Eat Static have been making their brand of otherworldly sci-fi electronic music for 28 years and have been considered as seminal by many respected electronic music producers today. They are one of the UK's only real live dance acts and still headline major events all over the world. 2017 see's Merv Pepler, the only surviving member, still staying true to his roots and continuing to release music. For the new album entitled 'Last Ship To Paradise' he actually teams up with former/original member Steve Everitt, on an effort that was said to be entirely created using modular synthesizers. They sought to get past the limitations and even endless possibilities of modern technology - namely VSTs. It was a labour of love, for as Merv said "there's no sound until you patch it up...". The album is released via Canadian electronica imprint Interchill - legends of the Montreal ambient scene since the late '90s: and who released Pepler's 2008 full length 'Back To Earth'

Review: Eazy does it. Fresh from some serious Noisia support, the Walking Dead bone-rattling boss man lets rip with two horn-scorched slicers. "Funny Bones" slaps and tickles with a Bristol style bouncing riff and some of the smokiest brass ever laid down over a jump-up tune. "Ancient Entities" takes an even deeper route with a purring bassline, stark steppy beats and even more emotional horn work. Woozy but not snoozy, Eazy's on a right vibe here.

This one comes complete with a bag of great remixes, including a trippy Asta Hiroki rework of the instrumental backing. Top stuff again from both the Ephemerals and Jalapeno brands!

Review: What a year it's been for the guys at Local Action, a label truly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of bass music to its limits and beyond. Their final release of the year see's grimey hot shot Finn return on solo EP duties with the label for the first time in over 2 years. This release commentates Finn's creation of a grimey-disco fusion, focussing throughout on R&G inspired vocal chops, explosive chord patterns and funky rhythmic patterns. Our highlight is without doubt the beautiful 'Give Us A Hand' which was premiered earlier this year on DummyMag's SoundCloud page. Fantastic stuff once again from one of Manchester's most creative electronic musicians.

Review: Once a duo, now two solo artists doing a collabo; Flexxa & Enta break and enter into the top of our playlists with five slabs of utter fire. "Be Sneaky" is as cheeky as its name suggests with its warped reverse bassline trippiness, "Bizness" is all about the sopping wet samurai lasers while "Maximum Power" rasps out a venomous Q&A that morphs, mutates and raises in tone throughout. Elsewhere Enta twists up Flexxa's "Dreams" with wriggling riffage while "The Agenda" is a knuckle scuffing sandpaper funk jam that's made of 100% toxic ingredients. Cheeky.

Review: Liverpool's Matthew Barnes returns to London's Ninja Tune outfit with a one-off single from his new LP, Compassion. "Exalter" perfectly captures the mood and vibe of the album, a rhythmic assortment of ethnic harmonies that have been collated under a more rigid electronic framework. With fleeting, miasmic vocals, and a loose range of hollow electornic sounds, Forest Swords gives the term downtempo and whole new meaning. Deep and majestic, tenebrous and uplifting. All at once.

This one is packed with dance floor grit, aggressive swing and a fantastic groove in general as Stickybuds layers sections from the original arrangement perfectly amidst his own signature distorted bass synths and crunchy drum work. This one comes complete with the Stickybuds instrumental mix as well for good measure!

Review: Furney most be one of the most prolific men in the game. Constantly rolling out glistening soul sessions on a turbo-basis, these four gems land just weeks after his dope "Jamaican Jazz" EP on Soul Deep. As always, it's a widescreen flavour adventure; "Break My Heart" is a soft-focused ballad, "Windmills Of Your Mind" jitters with some subtle old school effects and textures, "Destination Unknown" taps back to the early 2000s Hospital flavours with LK style guitars and Byrd style vocal chops. Finally "I'm Awake Now" closes on a bugle-busting wild west romp. Ride 'em cowboy!

Review: Gabriel Ananda is back. The German tech house legend was most popular in the mid noughties with his trippy blend of minimal groove, made most popular by the anthem "Suessholz" which went to the top of the German DJ charts. It was followed by another hit in 2005 titled '"hre Persoenliche Gluecksmelodie" and of course the totally mental "Doppelwhipper" in 2006. In 2008, Gabriel founded his own record label, Basmati. Here he can add another milestone to a so far successful career, in the form of a release for UK powerhouse Bedrock. He teams up with label head honcho John Digweed (and his right hand man Nick Muir) on "Tachyon Dream", a buzzy and bustling progressive house journey featuring a truly epic use of melody that will hypnotise you into submission. The rework on the flip sees the trio deliver a more powerful and straight-ahead version, with more powerful rhythm arrangements and a faster tempo.

Review: The latest release from Into The Light demonstrates once again few can match Tako Reyenga of Redlight Records fame and his Echovolt counterpart Ilias Pitsios when it comes showcasing the sublime musical pioneers of '70s and '80s Greece. Much like last year's Vangelis Katsoulis retrospective, the focus of the latest Into The Light release falls on another artist to feature on their classic debut compilation in the shape of George Theodorakis. Son of Mikis, the legendary composer responsible for scoring Zorba The Greek and Serpico, Theodorakis issued only a limited amount of music over a 20 year period, but was known for his intense studio habits which resulted in a vast archive of unreleased material. Much of that features on The Rules of the Game: Original Studio Recordings (1978-1995), with the 16 tracks rolling deeper into the new age synthesizer vibe of the two Theodorakis compositions that featured on the label's debut compilation.

Review: Italian group Hard Ton's second remix EP on Luv Shack Records comes packed with five more exclusive reworks. It features Parisian producer/rapper Kiddy Smile, fellow Luv Shackers Lee Stevens and Audio Red and Kelton Prima. Our highlights were "Never Give Up" getting the ROTCIV treatment: the Brazilian producer gives the track a classic mid '80s Chicago styled makeover. The other highlight was the Tomasz Guiddo Remix of "The Way You Rock" which similarly goes stateside, but with more of an early '90s sound: reminiscent of the legendary MK's style of dubs. Released earlier in 2017, Party Hard Ton was about the uniting aspects of electronic music and celebrating the concept of partying. The styles featured on the album were as diverse as the artists involved such as Moralez & Sames, Johnny Woo, Snuff Crew and Spiller. For those that missed it, we'd highly recommend it!

Review: Oliver Huntemann's Senso Sounds returns with more brooding dance floor drama coming at you straight out of the Reeperbahn. Featuring the highly engineered minimal tech house of label staple Hatzler on "High Noon", Sicilian sonic magician Paul Ursin delivers the hypnotic and suspense filled journey track "Space Race" (which could have equally been at home on a label like Life & Death) and then they go out all guns blazing with the druggy and tunnelling strobe-lit monster "Modul" by Cachette - where the Belgian duo employ some mid noughties style ping-pong delays in the tradition of Minus and SCI + TEC releases of the time. It's been a great year for Huntemann's label with the release of his full length entitled Propaganda, in addition to some killer dance floor fodder by the likes of Julian Wassermann, Victor Ruiz and fellow Hamburger Andre Winter.

Review: San Francisco producer Homero Espinoza is a survivor of the Bay Area's legendary early '90s rave scene, though in recent times he's become better known for a string of high quality deep and jazzy house releases. These two joints on Strictly Rhythm, produced in partnership with regular collaborators Phase Dee and Mikey V, contain more than a little "back in the day" flavour. With its' classic Chicago style analogue bassline, rich organs, smoky chords and superb Mr V vocal, "Taste of Your Love" sounds like it was tailor-made for dimly-lit warehouses and impromptu early morning beach parties. The saucer-eyed old school vibe continues on the deeper, dreamier and chunkier virtual flipside "The Way You Dance".

Review: Mexican producer Hotmood can usually be relied upon to bring the goods, and so it proves on this tasty new four-tracker for SFSB Recordings. We're particularly enjoying lolloping opener "Let's Get It", where jammed-out synthesizer and Clavinet motifs rise above a supple groove, though loopy, housed-up re-edit "Last Soul" is also rather tasty. "The G Groove" sees him reach for the filters and deliver a slinky, bass-heavy take on a lesser-known disco-funk cut, while "Keep on Dancing" chops and rearranges a punchy, horn-heavy cut previously re-edited by Todd Terje some years back. The edits and loops are quite short, leading to a version that feels more suitable for house dancefloors than straight-up disco ones.

Review: Having spent the last few years quietly building his reputation via decent EPs for ESP Institute, Saft and Keep it Zen, Ian Blevins has had a relatively quiet 2017. This outing on Dave Harvey's Futureboogie Recordings label is only his second release of the year. It is, though, rather good, with Blevins gleefully sprinting between acid-flecked, Italo-disco inspired Balearic house (tidy opener "Round Trip"), rush inducing, organ and acid-driven positivity ("Roland's Rat") and rolling, slow-building late night goodness (the bubbly melodies and elongated chords of "Can You Count My Dream"). The obligatory remix is provided by Lobster Theremin and Uncanny Valley regular Panthera Krause, whose Moroder-on-happy tablets version of "Round Trip" is a warm, hazy and life-affirming delight.

Review: Back to the roots. Format firesmith Ikon-B re-ups his label with two sides of purist jungle heat from himself, Sound Shifter and the mysterious Lion-UK. "Sweet Dubplate" is every bit as succulent and savage as its name suggest with big drops in the drum dynamic, sweeping sense of momentum and that all-essential vision blurring feeling. Lion-UK's "Hold It Down" provides more of a sensual jungle rub thanks to some sweet dancehall vocals, atmospheric pads but still rolling with a white-knuckle jungle drum set. Important.

Review: Italian label Just This rounds off a stellar year with this split release. Digging deep into underground house and techno, it brings together some of the finest artists who often fly under the radar. "Aechmea" is typical of the crisp, broken beat techno that Ed Davenport's Inland project specialises in, while on "Zona", Ben Gibson drops a straighter rhythm track, albeit one that is still covered in mysterious synths. On "Kundal", the anonymous producer My Flower delivers a vivid, frazzled groove, while completing the release is Italian pair Hiver, whose gloriously melancholic "Stellar Parallax Landing" is the highlight of an esoteric release.

These killer remixes come courtesy of the revamped Sean Dickson of The Soup Dragons: now known as Hifi Sean with his Big Beat Boutique sounding version. Indeed it's a throwback to the late '90s. The EP's highlight comes courtesy of Reverso 68's Pete Herbert who comes in with a sexy and slinky nu-disco rendition. Finally we get treated to a tidy 2017 remaster for fans of the original. All killer no filler right here, dig it!

Boogie is that he is from Athens and definitely has credentials - when you consider that he has released on tastemaker labels such as local imprint ChopShop, Springbok, SpinCat and now London's Midnight Riot who present his new Forbidden Kiss EP. The funky disco loops of the title track are evidence of a respectful edit that at the same time does not forego DJ functionality: with that absolutely epic brass section this is your next secret weapon. "Like It" is a lo-slung boogie number for long hot sexy nights and the way he works that low pass filter throughout: gives it an absolute midas touch. Finally "Never Stop" is another fine piece of edit action and this one is a real treasure that was well worthy of a modern revision. Nice one!

Review: Vibed-out instrumentals from heavyweight grime flexer J Beatz. Five tracks deep, each one hits the spot: "Stinjan" gets down with a classic housey twang and groove so heavily swung it's almost broken beat or UK funky while "Gyal From Brum" continues the house theme with a deep swimming string hook that lilts with hypnosis. Deeper we travel for some serious turn-of-the-century assaults with "Hop scotch" and "Sket"; all snares, orchestral drama and brutal body bass, file for special occasions. Finally "Nutshell" closes the EP on a sultry R&B flex. Low-slung feels, smoking 808s and lavish strings. More fire than two whole series of The Apprentice.

Review: Having started his career by making synth-heavy cuts inspired by proto-house, disco and NYC boogie, Jex Opolis has recently moved further towards Balearic territory. Human Emotion, the New York producer's final 12" of the year, smartly touches on all of these influences and more. "Human Emotion (TV Dub)" is loved-up, slick and groovy, with cut-up vocal samples rising above a dreamy, drum machine-dominated groove, while "Fifth Wind" layers saucer-eyed piano flourishes and head-in-the-clouds chords over a killer analogue bassline and near-horizontal rhythm track. Elsewhere, "Botanica" is a Fairlight-wielding chunk of Balearic instrumental synth-pop, "Infinity Room" sounds like Andreas Vollenweider jamming with Moon B, and closer "Human Emotion" is a low-slung, proto-house style treat.

Envenom take us back to 2015 and add a whole new layer of twisted harmonic funk to "Kicks" while Dutta gives us the (KRS) one-fingered salute with the savage high-note riff venom. Finally Jayline & Hokilla's 2013 jungle rumbler gets a stark subby treatment from San Diego fire man Sub Killaz. And this is only part one...

Review: New York house music royalty Sandy Rivera released the Witness Protection EP 20 years ago and this digital reissue commemorates the timeless classic. He has worked under a variety of pseudonyms over the years, including Soul Vision and Mysterious People in addition to running the BlackWiz imprint. Defected sublabel 4 To The Floor are dedicated to preserving the legacy of such underground anthems and are really on the money with this one. The classic Jersey garage swing of the Prosecution Mix follows the hypnotic darkroom dub of the Relocation Mix. The Jury and Defense mix (the latter almost an acapella of sorts) are handy DJ tools for the more experimental among you. While Rivera's output has slowed down in the last decade, many will no doubt remember how prolific he was up until the mid '00s when he released a steady stream of timeless vocal house anthems such as "Finally", "In The Night" and "Dreams".

Review: Since debuting earlier in the year, Kuzma Palkin has delivered a handful of releases that explore the murky middle ground between experimental house and techno and intriguing eletcronica. There's a similar feel to this first outing on Quartet Series, with opener "Macho Culture" offering an ear-catching blend of distorted, loose-limbed machine drums, descending analogue motifs and icy, occasionally melancholic electronic melodies. The Russian producer's love of stabbing, dirt-encrusted basslines comes to the fore on skewed deep house shuffler "Muscle Mass Increase", "Proper Sauna Chill" channels the spirit of warehouse-ready rave music whilst sounding more like dub-fuelled deep house, and "Krepkiyeye Bitepsy" sounds like Maurice Fulton's Syclops project with a jazz-flecked electro twist. Impressive stuff, all told.
