Surrender - (4:15) 98 BPM

Review: The impressively varied tracks on offer on this latest release from 76 Factor present what's almost a microcosm of Balearic music in three-track form. Opener 'Tru' starts with male voices discussing the history of Ibiza and the Balearic "movement" atop an atmospheric backing, before settling down into a lazy, slo-mo funk groover replete with wistful sax and layered aquatic sounds. 'Slow Lorus' is a deep, dubby cut reminiscent of Smith & Mighty, while completing the EP is 'Surrender', a full-on ambient affair. Between the three, this is an extremely effective weapon to add to your chill-out arsenal.

Testimony (Letherette remix) - (5:37) 124 BPM
from $1.91
Review: On Anchorsong's new album, "Cohesion", "Testimony" is a jaunty chunk of Bollywood influenced goodness complete with tablas, Indian style drums and heaps and warm and woozy musical touches. Here it gets the remix treatment by Nina Tune and Wulf duo Letherette, who naturally give it a completely different spin. Their take on the Tokyo-born producer's tasty cut is a much more dancefloor-focused affair, with blasts of Bollywood percussion, drowsy piano motifs and chopped-up vocal samples rising above a smooth and bass-heavy deep house groove. It's a radical re-invention, all told, but also utterly terrific. This is proper UK deep house for late nights and early mornings.

Bombing For Peace - (6:49) 129 BPM
from $1.91
Review: Andrew Red Hand has been described as eastern Europe's version of Underground Resistance, and based on this release it's hard not to see some similarities. That said, Revolution '89 starts with the decidedly European-focused moody electro of "In The Cemetery", while on "Slaying the Dictator", he ventures into a more brooding, 4/4 techno approach which is informed as much by ebm and horror disco as techno. On "There is Hope", the Romanian producer's love of Detroit techno comes back again thanks to the use of a predatory bass and sublime synths, while "Bombing for Peace" sees him deliver a Chicago-influenced banger that centres on frenetic snares and mad acid lines.

Review: Given his track record and impressive credentials, we were rather surprised to discover that the "Worthless EP" marks Argy's Crosstown Rebels label debut. The title is, of course, tongue-in-cheek, because there's nothing worthless about the killer cuts on show. In fact, the title track is one of Argy's most instantly ear-catching workouts for a while, with the action focused on a crunchy, distorted drum track, rubbery bass guitar, whispered spoken word samples ("I feel worthless... I'm living on the edge") and just the right amount of dystopian noises. Elsewhere, "La Vida" is a crusty chunk of lo-fi jacking funk, while "Get Ready" is a low-slung early morning Warehouse roller.

Review: The drum and bass pioneer Marcus Intalex (real name Marcus Kaye) passed away unexpectedly in 2017 aged 45. This posthumous three tracker is released under his undercover Art Vandelay alias intended for release on - naturally - Vandelay Industries (but coming out through his Birdie imprint) which will appeal to all the Seinfeld fans out there. From the tough and dusty swing-fuelled deepness of "Ballin" to the gutsy acid jack of "Dirty Thirty" and the soulful melancholic first wave Chicago vibe of "Olde Rotary" - it seemed that the best was yet to come from this true legend of the UK underground.

Review: Artificial Intelligence and their very own Integral Records are to liquid D&B what hydrogen is to the universe - everywhere. Their unique brand of soulful, rolling music has given unforgettable moments to so many, both in terms of their own productions as well as on their label. The Series: Season 2 is the latest, a four-tracker that exemplifies their sound with pure style. 'B.A.D.A' is wispy and emotional; 'Waiting Room' combines a luscious vocal with intricate depth; 'Smoke Screens' is pulsating, wide and full of ambience; 'Boxed In' fills up the range with dream-worthy pads and crisp percussive lines. This EP is an essential for anyone who loves their D&B on the lighter end of the spectrum.

Review: For his debut release on Lobster Theremin, ASOK aka Stu Robinson goes deep. The title track features rolling break beats, layered textures and a smokey vocal sample. "Frontier" is based on a similar approach, although this time the rickety 808s underpin a melancholic feeling and a brooding, dark bass that works its way through the arrangement. "Nowwhat" sees a flurry of dense, rhythmic activity, with Robinson dropping wired tonal sequences and eerie chords, while he closes out this atmospheric, moody release with "It's Over". Featuring the same type of vocals as the title track, it unravels over tight electro drums and woozy filters

Review: BEC returns to Second State after last year's Law Of Attraction with another solid dance floor techno EP. The title track and "Synchronicity" are solid, linear workouts that resound to dense, rolling drums, repetitive vocal loops and deft, filtered builds. "Are You Looking" is more uptempo and centres on detuned, noisy riffs and firing, layered percussion, while on "Play Drum", she goes down a techno wormhole, characterised by shimmering synths and evocative filters. Pan-Pot's label has also commissioned a remix of the title track from Dutch veteran 2000 & One, who doesn't disappoint with a version that features pitch-bent vocals and wild acid licks.

Remixes of the title track come courtesy of Berlin legend Ruede Hagelstein with his brooding and minimal Boost Cut, followed by boss man Lodemann and his crafty edit.

Review: One year on from his full length release for Sheffield institution Warp, Bibio - the alias of Stephen Wilkinson from the West Midlands - returns to the dreamlike environments evoked in the original LP. Phantom Brickworks "IV" and "V" are more haunting yet evocative neo-classical experiences; a couple of long winding and introspective pieces that are at the same time bittersweet and hopeful.

Review: Phengophobia, the fear of daylight. In our eyes, this name couldn't be more accurate as Bushbaby rolls out his fourth full EP with Brighton based high flyers: Southpoint, and it's a dark one for sure. As a project, this really summarizes how far Bushbaby has come, with 'Hold Up' being the perfect piece of dark bass magic to transform any crowd into an absolute zoo. The infamous vocal presence of Dread MC makes an appearance also on 'Montana', a gnarly dancehall infused stomper, packed with lethal energy. The mood then dramatically alters as the young soundsmith unleashes a phenomenal dosage of electronic soundscaping in the title track 'Phengophobia', showcasing the true depth of his skill.

Review: Norwegian nu-disco producer Cavego, AKA Even Hymer Gillebo, has previously appeared on labels like Youth Control and Get Dancy, and here makes his debut on Belgium's mighty Eskimo imprint with an EP named after the valley where his family have a summer cabin. After the 1:44 intro that is 'Velkomst', he serves up five cuts inspired as much by Italo disco as by the Scandi sounds for which his fellow countrymen have made Norway famous, ranging from the sumptuous synth-pop of 'Hajfell' and the very 80s-sounding 'Farvel' to the irrepressibly sunny 'Var I Ayer' and the tripped-out, chuggy 'Kjeiken'

Vertikal Vind - (5:21) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Review: Having played a key role in popularizing the productions of Scandolearic heavyweights Lindstrom and Prins Thomas early in their careers, Eskimo Recordings continues to champion young Norwegian producers. The latest is Cavego, who celebrates the imminent release of his fine debut album with a suitably solid new single. "Vertical Vind" is available in two flavour combinations. There's the sublime album mix (track two), which sees him build the tension via waves of attractive synthesizer lines before introducing woozy vocal harmonies, even more melodies and a chugging space-disco groove of the kind regularly featured on Prins Thomas's "Full Pupp" label, and the shorter "Kort Versjon". This dispenses with the stretched-out intro completely, instead getting straight to the point and the Bergen-based producer's rush-inducing synths.

Review: The evil nature of this release is apparent straight away, its artwork featuring a ghoulish, smiling goblin who's devilish character spreads easily into the tunes. 'Hobgoblin' itself is snarling and pissed off, a ghoulish blend of synth energy and back end force that twists itself over and under, back and forth. 'Pirelli's Elixir' is equally as insane, a good display of sound design acumen that bodes very well for Ceph's future, as does 'Regular Creepy Smile', a minimal roller that lands with pinpoint precision and delicate yet forceful depth. This is three-tracks of top notch stuff from a relative newcomer - grab it now.

Review: After years spent flitting between such high profile labels as Visionquest, BPitch Control, Turbo and Supplement Facts, Chaim made his debut on Moscoman's Disco Halal label this time last year. While the resultant EP, "The Perfect Circle", was rather good, this belated follow-up is even better. Check, for example, druggy title track "Your Mulana", where military drum fills, exotic Middle Eastern vocals and lilting electronic melodies ride a faintly foreboding, low-slung groove. Or, for that matter, the mind-altering psychedelic disco thrust of "Ventilator" - all psych guitar solos, Italo-disco style arpeggio lines and creepy electronic - and wavy drums-and-synths style of closing cut "Toriaz". Also impressive is the atmospheric tech-house-meets-cosmic-disco shuffle of the Trikk Numero Fim Dub of "Your Mulana".

Review: Having previously showcased his wares on Better Listen, Kolour Ltd and Homage, Chevals makes his bow on Whiskey Disco with a quadruple dose of re-edit gold. The Frenchman first treats us to the deep house-disco bounce of "La Bouteille", where jammed-out electric piano lines and rising horn motifs increase in prominence throughout, before treating us to the shirts-off, hands-aloft disco soul pandemonium of "Under Your Command". Elsewhere, "Fairy Tales" is a pleasingly slick and soulful take on an '80s electrofunk shuffler, while "Croisades" is a giddy, punch-drunk dance through horn-heavy disco-funk pastures.

Review: There's a fine line between the re-edit and the sample track, and it's a line that gets notably blurred on this latest Chewy Rubs EP from Re-Loved, though the latter tag probably fits slightly better. 'Everybody' is a stuttery nu-disco/disco-house jam topped with familiar diva vocal snippets, the rolling, bass-y Seamus Haji Remix of 'It's Not Over' impressively breathes new life into the well-worn First Choice vocal, 'Too Much, You Know' operates at the jazzier end of the contemporary funk spectrum and will likely prove the connoisseurs' choice, while 'Doing It' is straight-up Euro dancefloor exuberance, late 70s-style.

Played by: Chewy Rubs, 80's Child
Review: Like fictional super-spy James Bond, Chewy Rubs prefers his re-edits "Shaken Not Stirred". "Took My Love Away (Chewy Rubs Deep Disco Vox"), the opening cut from the Star Wars-loving producer's latest EP, is every bit as potent and tipsy as a pint of Vodka Martini, with deliciously glassy-eyed female vocal snippets rising above a loopy disco-house groove. Similarly impressive is chugging, mind-altering throb-job "Love A Groove (Chewy Rubs Extend-it)", where spacey synthesizer arpeggio lines and quirky vocal samples rise above a pulsating, mid-'80s dancefloor groove. Elsewhere, "Garage Disco III" is a electric piano-heavy revision of a mid-80s NYC house jam rearranged in cahoots with pal Moke, while "Rake The Moon (Chewy Rubs Space Dust Rub)" is a creepy, ever-growing, house-friendly tweak of a weirdo space disco workout.

Review: Time for a Chinese hug by way of Marseilles as Chinese Man unleashes his 2017 album to a whole troupe of French talent (and beyond) for an almighty 17 track remix opus spanning every style from wave to D&B. Highlights ping across the spectrum; Chapelier Fou brings a dreamy IDM subtlety to "Wolf", Matteo lays down a Bonobo style cinematic stampede on "Modern Slave", Sly adds a little cosmic ballad touch to "Stone Cold", Poirer whips up a mystic storm on "Malad"... And that's just the start of the hug. Dig deep.

Review: Claus Casper and Jean Philips have been collaborating on singles since 2009. Following releases on Sorry Shoes, Nite Grooves and Emma Music, they seem to have finally found a settled home on No Brainer Records. The duo's latest missive for the German label is packed with playable positivity, from the drowsy deep house chords, rolling beats and life-affirming disco samples of "A New Beginning", to the filter-sporting, head-in-the-clouds bliss of tasty disco-house workout "Cherish". Sandwiched in between the two you'll find "We Fell In Love", a stomping and percussively punchy house revision of an energy-packed disco-funk cut.

Review: More studious retro-futurism from the Cold Tonic camp, as fast-rising Irish artist Conny showcases some of his numerous old school influences. This time round he's happily daydreaming about Brooklyn basements and New Jersey warehouses. He provides two versions of "Song For Eva": a deliciously glassy-eyed "Jersey Mix" full of "Show Me Love" style organ riffs, dreamy chords and rubbery synth-bass, and a rushing, piano-heavy "Brooklyn Rave Mix" that sounds like the sort of thing that Frankie Bones and company would have giddily played at their infamous Storm Rave parties. Running Back regular Shan provides the obligatory remixes, first emphasizing the loved-up chords, melodies and bass on the fittingly titled "Sunrise Mix", before giving the track a massive peak-time kick up the arse on the stab-happy "3AM Pump Mix".

Review: It would be fair to say that Joe Danvers-McCabe is a rising star. Aside from being a member of IG Culture's invite-only Co-Op Presents Selectors Assemble" collective, he's also released impressive EPs on WotNot Music and Monologues Music. This outing on Bristol's badass Boogie Caf? label is pretty darn tasty, too. Check, for example, the eyes-wide-shut vocal samples, cut-up double bass and dusty deep house rhythms of "Desire", the deep house/broken beat fusion of "I Can't Let Him Know" and the similarly inclined wonder that is lo-fi closing cut "Someone To Count On". Also worth a listen is Harry Wolfman's deliciously melodious, positive and drowsy deep house take on opening cut "Desire", which makes an already loved-up track positively rush-inducing.

Review: Wheel & Deal are set to continue their impressive year here as they invite in the punchy production stylings of Dayzero for an official three track project, stuffed to the brim with organic dubstep goodness. The title track 'Dagger 3' is a stripped back glitch driven piece of magnificence, initially led by an offkey synth arpeggiation above scatty rolls and lethal sub shivers. Following this, we have 'The Lord Boy', which boasts it's perfect mix of glitchy lead melodics in a call and respond with tasty LFO movements. We finish up on 'Dinosaur Age', which combines stomping brass leads with subtle 808 stabs for a super shocker showdown, polishing off an exciting bag of originals.

Review: This is one of Degrader's first releases, but this new artist has chosen a high-quality platform in the shape of Nodezero. Like the imprint that it is released on, Uranium is not a typical electro record. On the original version of the title track, Degrader combines glitchy percussion, rolling drums and melodies that contain the spangled psychedelia of Border Community as much as they do electro's austere futurism. On the T/Error remix, a more robust electro bass and dense snares support the original melody lines, while the Direct Y version veers into the kind of widescreen, downbeat sound that is designed for home listening.

The Fcking Serious label staple returns to Boris Brejcha's imprint with more brooding and razor sharp tech house aimed squarely at afterhours dancefloors. He teams up with good buddy from the south of France Markus Volker on the seething back room dub of "Free Your Mind" which is the kind of minimal we just love - groovy, trippy and downright nasty. Bul then flies solo on the 303 express with "With You" (Acid version) where he lets the resonance and glide of that trusty little Roland box do all the talking.

Review: Des McMahon puts most other North American producers to shame with his ability to produce euphoric yet slamming D&B, and it's great to see such talent coming out from across the pond. Back on his regular collaborating partner Viper Recordings, 'Space Candy' is the first of two and accurately hits the nail on the Viper Recordings shaped head with its infectious synth work and ambitious blend of vocal force and low-frequency pushing. 'Cold' is the flip and it makes for a quality B-side that is even more suited for the dancefloor and smacks of previous Viper signing Insideinfo with its pummelling percussive weight and gasping tones. Another good release from Matrix & Futurebound's label.

Review: The sound of Afro-funk is alive and well, as this four-track EP from DJ Moy ably and amply demonstrates! 'L'Afrikano' opens proceedings, a heady cocktail of Afro, funk, Balearic and house influences. 'Superfunk' is more in classic 70s funk mode and could have been lifted straight from a blaxploitation soundtrack with its fat, squelchy bass, vocal shouts and twittering flutes, 'Afrojazz' does such a good job of describing itself in a single word that's there's probably no need to say much more except "listen to it, cos it's great!" and finally there's 'The Dance Floor', a deep percussion and woodwind groove for the dancers.

Review: Canadian twosome Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee return to Editorial with some "Party Favors". The headline attraction is arguably another outing for Greg Wilson's forgotten 2011 revision of "Flip Da Beat", a delay-laden mid-tempo roller rich in filtered bass, echoing vocal samples, crispy disco drums and super-sweet disco and hip-hop samples. There's plenty to set the pulse racing elsewhere, too. "Stellar Dub" is a fine rework of a punchy Brazilian disco-funk jam that wisely focuses on the killer groove and ear-catching horn lines, while "Name of Luv" sees them straighten out and beef-up a grandiose disco number full of swirling strings, busy Clavinet lines and sugary soul vocals.

Review: Next up on Hamburg imprint Diynamic is celebrated homeboy Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize under his new Elax alias. He debuted on the Four To The Floor series back in August with is Reaktor EP and returns with his new scorcher named "Sueno". Unlike the high octane productions under his usual alias, Ridha proves that he is a versatile artist on this epic serving of dancefloor drama that creates an emotive atmosphere by its use of elaborate melodic chord progressions. Second offering "Rhumba" uses a familiar hook from the acid house era reinterpreted brilliantly for modern dancefloors on this sleek tech house cut.

Review: Earlier in the year, U.S disco and house legend Danny Krivit took his scalpel to Emilie Nana's super single "I Rise", a warm and woozy fusion of shuffling beats, visions of Shiva chords, blissful electronic melodies and stylish spoken word vocals. Now Compost has turned the track over to another bona fide U.S legend, Wave Music man and former Prelude remixer Francois Kevorkian. Predictably, he does a superb job, re-casting Nana's original as a constantly building cosmic house epic on his superb, near 12-minute "Journey Vocal" version. His subtle percussive changes and ear for atmosphere come to the fore on the suitably trippy and head-in-the-clouds dancefloor Dub, while the "Bonus Beats" take sees him layering up the drums and effects with incredibly impressive results.

Review: Brighton vibe conjurer Footshooter returns to our collections with this exceptional Yam debut. More mini album than EP, "Technicolour Nights" is an exceptional piece of work that fuses a whole gamut of styles that work just as well at home as they do in the dance. Running like a hazy trip from start to finish, highlights include the subtle rolling breaks fluttering beneath the provocative spoken word of And Is Phi on "Mars", the rippled wah wahs and stately momentum of "Juan's Stairwell" and the slo-n-low shuffles and dreamy strums of the finale "Our Love". Sublime... Sleep on this and you'll be shooting yourself in the foot.

Review: More from long-serving U.S house producer Frankie J, who returns to his similarly vintage Flapjack label for the first time in almost six years. "Back To Jack" contains two cuts in his inimitable style, which sits somewhere between rich, funk-fuelled deep house, glitchy mid-'90s U.S garage and rubbery electro-house. The pick of the pair is probably bouncy opener "The House That Jack Built", where fizzing synth riffs and vintage organ stabs rise above rubbery beats and a fireside-warm, disco style bassline. "I Be Like" is similarly boisterous - think Switch-style drums, smooth boogie bass, jaunty stabs and cut-up vocal samples - and arguably even warmer and positive in tone.

Review: Sound Exhibitions boss Funk Reverse brings us two more slices of nu-funk goodness. 'Get Down Sound' is up first, starting with house-y vocal samples and light, toppy percussion before introducing choppy guitars, an intricate live-sounding bassline and disjointed male vocal snips, the main "gonna make you dance" vocal arriving only after a brass-tastic breakdown halfway through. 'People Get Up' nudges even closer to beach house/Balearic territory, making these two contemporary funk slabs that eschew straight-up 70s pastiche, opti instead to embrace more modern influences and, as a result, end up eminently programmable in a wide range of sets.

Review: Without a doubt one of the best low-key record labels, Soul Deep is back with regular partner-in-crime Furney for a classic piece of funky D&B. Furney's music has a certain roughness to it, that rustiness in the drums and the lack of clarity in the highs, both of which conspire to add even more charm and character to his productions. The title track encapsulates that well, with its soaring sample and warm, padded bass notes. He goes a bit deeper than usual with 'Long Distance Relative' and 'I Can't Take It', subtler sounds at the back and more introspective tones at the fore on these two. A nicely diversified release from a stalwart of the scene.

Elements that are perfectly amplified in Rings Around Saturn's deep soulful D&B mix. The perfect package.

Review: Having been announced a few weeks ago via a very well received threethousand.co.uk premiere, Project Allout bring forward this solid project from bassline top dog JG. We kick off with the "almost" title track 'Bring That Dub', which is a slithering bag of grooves, filled with very creative sound design across a range of synths. Following this we have 'I Wanna', which builds with electronic organs, delving into niche style bassline melodies and skippy drum chops, before we hit the more rapid fire bass wobbles of 'Run While You Can'. We finish up with the high pitched electronic patterns of 'I Wanna', putting the finishing touches on a very well thought out four tracker.

Review: Not one but five funky slices from fresh talents make up this new EP from Italian label Pizza Tunait. Jong Long's 'This Road' is a deep funk jam consisting primarily of live drums, warbling Hammond chords and a scratchy, sampled female vocal. There's more Hammond action on Girolamo Erilancho's 'Maybe', augmented by sonorous bass and reverb'd geetar, Francois Du Starper's melancholy, jazz-tinged 'Vignola 84' has a cinematic, soundtrack-y kinda feel, Gavin Saccoda's 'Come On' takes us into uplifting, brassy territory and finally Franco De Morano's 'Biancaneve' has airy flutes, raw slap bass and yes, more of those ker-razy Hammonds.

Review: Long-serving DJ Justin Cudmore has put out releases on labels that have been affiliated with his DJing such as Interdimensional Transmissions and the Bunker. However, he now widens his gaze with this debut on Phonica's White offshoot. Like those previous Eps and his own DJing, the sound of Chicago and in particular acid, looms large here. "Twisted Love" resounds to a rolling , drum-heavy backing, breathy vocal samples and some of the most tweaked, tripped out 303 lines known to humanity. On "About to Burst", the mood is not as intense, but Cudmore still manages to imbue the spiky, percussive arrangement with the type of wired acid action that will get spines tingling and pulses racing.

Review: Banana Hill's latest musical missive is indicative of the label's global dancefloor fusion approach. It sees in-house producers Contours and Cervo join forces with Ugandan "percussion troupe" Fonkodelis Arkestra as Kawuku Sound. The resultant seven-track set is superb, with the group's brilliant Ugandan drum rhythms variously being fused with dub style production, spacey synth lines, gentle electronic ambience (see the sublime closing track "Niloctica's Yard"), dusty spoken word samples and fluid melodies. It's a hybrid mixture that works very well. The genius lies in the "soft touch" nature of Contours and Cervo's production, which largely pushes Fonkodelis Arkestra's brilliant percussion to the fore.

Review: Here, a quartet of producers step up to offer their interpretations of "Neutron Dance", the throbbing, Italo-disco-fired lead cut from Krystal Klear's "Division EP". Paul Woolford pays tribute to early Eddie Richards project Jolly Roger on his jaunty, early UK house style rework - all squidgy TB-303 bass, drum machine cowbells and fluid house pianos - before Fango re-imagines the track as a sprightly chunk of New York freestyle/breakbeat house fusion. Fellow Irishman Mano Le Tough takes to the mic on his hybrid Italo-disco/throbbing house take, before Running Back chief Gerd Jansen straps on his "Birkies" and re-imagines the Dublin producer's original as a breezy blast of dub-wise, retro-futurist house.

Review: Australian-born DJ, producer and instrument maker Lia Mice began work on her sophomore set, "The Sampler As A Time Machine", following her relocation to London in 2015. Three years, numerous techno and electro club nights and countless hours spent reading books on time travel later, the album is finally complete. It's a rather fine set, all told, with Mice delivering off-kilter futurist tracks that sit somewhere between leftfield sci-fi synth-pop, metallic IDM, wonky synth-funk, bustling up-beat electro, weirdo ambient, contemporary new wave and meandering intergalactic techno. That Optimo Music has decided to release it isn't much of a surprise: it's full of the kind of inspired, stylish electronic oddities that have always appealed to boss man JD Twitch.

Review: Liquid Pegasus's synth-funk focused 2016 debut album "What I Actually Do" was so good that many expected him to become a major force in the growing nu-boogie scene. His career seems to have stalled since then, with this outing on Clandestine Boogie marking his first outing in almost two years. It's a vibrant, colourful and sun-kissed affair that regularly reaches rush-inducing levels of positivity. Check the meandering synth-bass, sparkling stabs and eyes-closed jazz guitar solos of "Makin' It Hot". "Sparkle" is deeper, more laidback and a touch more disco-fied, with Dave Allison upping the tempo a little while increasing the Balearic factor on his accompanying remix. Matt Hughes' tidy take on "Makin' It Hot" is arguably sturdier and more club-ready than Liquid Pegasus' original version.

Review: Despite begin one of the leading lights in modern electro and putting put material on CPU and Raar, Eczo is Maelstrom aka Joan-Mael Peneau's debut release for Cultivated Electronics. As befits such an individualistic artist, it's a diverse affair: there's the wiry, high-speed electro funk of "Smoker", while on the title track, Peneau drops the tempo and opts for a more atmospheric arrangement. The approach changes radically again on the Sync 24 remix of "Smoker", with the label owner dropping a high tempo, electro funk version, led by sparse drums and a frenetic, stepping rhythm. Closing out the release is the swampy "Confidential", where Maelstrom uses a dense rhythm and a detuned bass to devastating effect.
