Review: Not to be mixed up with the 1980s italo-disco crew, 'bassist' Aleph returns ot the Renraku imprint with the second instalment of his self-titled series. Much like the previous edition, there are low frequencies for all here, mashing up dubstep, trap and anything remotely attached to the hardcore continuum. Now that we're in 2018, however, it's much more difficult to unpack these sounds as belonging to specific genres, and this is emphasized further by his own creativity in the studio. For instance, tunes like "Goliath" or "Monolith" enter a new territory of bass music, shifting conventional notions of tempo, arrangement and aesthetic to fit in line with today's industrial trend. "Scintillations" is our favourite cut on here, mainly because it reminds us of AFX's early experiments. Look out for this guy in the coming months...

Review: The fifth instalment of this split release series gets off to a raucous start: Alex Stein's "Gojira" features an ominous bass and the kind of nocturnal synth stabs that could be the soundtrack to curfew in a bleak dystopia. Olivier Giacomotto's "Eake" is more restrained, but it does feature what sounds like a hyena yowling at regular intervals over its blend of percussive rhythm and morose bass. It's only a brief respite however, and on Distale's "Tantal", a pounding techno groove unravels to the sound of ominous chords and a buzzing bass. Oliver Huntemann deserves props for supporting new artists through this series - and the Senso boss is sure to especially proud of the closing track, the chilling "Full Of Magic" by Murat Uncuoglu.

Review: Having risen to one of the most sought after names across the breakbeat genre sphere, Alex Wicked makes a fabulous return to Spektra for a volatile two track project, beginning with the hardcore inspired sounds of the title track 'Fatal Attraction'. Through it's fantastic chord movement and shimmering breaksy drum selections, this one brings a real high level of energy to any blend. On the flip, we have the futuristic vocal sampling and spacious processing of 'Casino Royal', a fantastic addition filled to the brim with high energy designs.

Review: Following his well-received EP comeback "Analog Love" last year comes another sterling composition from Detroit veteran Alton Miller with the honeyed dulcets of singer Ree who comes on a strong like a young Amp Fiddler over Miller's restrained smooth chords. Then for an immense immersive Reedub where the vocals become sweet textures in a more freeform organ-led jam before fellow Detroiter Patrice Scott closes the show with a deep and dreamy refix. All the little things are adding up right here.

Review: Brand new to MUD, brand new to the game, the mysterious Ammon-Ra makes his debut with four precision cuts. "The Halls Of Amenti" is a haunted graveyard stepper until the metallic broadsword bassline swathes into the viscous blend, "Kybalion" ups the theatrics with big orchestral dynamics, spacy humanised textures and drop that teeters on naughty trap while "Streetwise" strips things right back for a much more alarming, creepy piece of work. Finally "Barely Human" jolts us with some high voltage wobble bass, all wrapped up in iceberg synth blasts. More of this place Mr Ra.

Review: Denver, Colorado-based label This Never Happened has been nurturing the talents of Anderholm for some time, frequently placing his productions on compilations and collaborative EPs. Now they've offered him the chance to go solo with Flight of the Sparrow, an expansive debut mini-album packed with deep house treats. There's naturally much to enjoy throughout, from the gentle pastoral instrumentation and undulating beats of opener "Secrets" and dewy-eyed early morning positivity of "Timecode", to the grandiose orchestration and low-slung beats of "Symphonie Des Fleurs". Elsewhere, "Orphee" fuses hazy, lo-fi beats with mournful piano motifs, "Flight of the Sparrow" is poignant and melancholic, and closer "Room 89" is dense and off-kilter in the best possible way.

Review: Artificial Intelligence's Integral imprint hits its second "Glow" volume and once again loads it with total D&B futurism from friends old and new. The bosses take the lead with a heavily textured stepper that's weighed down by a breath-taking reverse lead sound and processed vocals on "The Need", Air K & Cephei sprinkle some mountain fresh Austrian emotional gold into the mix with "Way Home", Satl & Djah flex on the low swinging soul vibe where the sample chimes softly just below the perfectly tuned rolling break and Serpico closes with the majestic soul-out "Illusion". Glowing.

Slangin This Dick - (3:32) 65 BPM
from $1.90
Review: Astronomar seems very well-positioned to reign supreme over the future of troop and house, with this new EP for Main Course sounding like it could appeal across the board...and throughout the clubs. "Throw Yo Hood Up" is driven bby a steady 4/4 beat but the vocal samples and minimalistic drum-machine melodies make it something altogether more hob rind in nature, and a whole lot more experimental. "Proteins" is similarly wacky and phased-out, with raucous vocal chops once again stomping through the harsh percussion shots, while "Exit D" performs a glitchy rave dance filled with bleeps and mildly industrial nuances, leaving "Slangin This Dick" to (explicitly) lash out a banging, hypnotic loop of bad manners and chunky breaks.

Review: Here we see a return to Cozy Lounge for the enigmatic pairing of Bass Adjustment and Shadi-Toloui-Wallace with a couple of absolutely storming remixes. The first comes to us courtesy of Blakk Habit who strips the track back to its foundations to rework into a skippy UKG detonation, allowing the smooth vocal presence of the original to sparkle through. The pace then quickens as we enter Celladore's energetic revamp, sticking on the UKG theme but here relying more on grinding subs, expanding synth LFOs and glittering arpeggiation.

Atlas - (6:29) 95 BPM

Review: his devious blend of techno sounds to a less minimally-minded dance audience. His strain of industrialism is loud and audible on "Forewarned Is Forearmed", a steely, broken techno rhythm that gather more and more pace as the deathly sonics cave in, while "Common Ancestor" ounces on fluidly without the help of any kick drums. "Doublethink" is an ode to 1984 dystopia, a wide soundscape of liquid drums and eerie melodies swirling over head, leaving "Atlas" to ponder in a dark, intricate whirlpool of sludgy melodies and broken percussion shots. Recommended!

First up we have the sound of Braymont Bro's with a electric rework, bringing the patois vocals of Santy G to the forefront with an array of epic horn melodies to back it. To follow, Detach appears with his more skippy uk bass rework before Murix finishes the EP off with his even more stripped back flip, again bringing a twisted taste of UKG flavour.

Don't Let Me Down - (7:07) 126 BPM
from $1.90
Review: Throughout the 2000s, Matthew "Bushwacka!" Benjamin played a significant role in popularizing a new wave of "breakbeat house" that drew influence from techno and tech-house. It's perhaps ironic, then, that the London veteran's first single in six years steers clear of breakbeats altogether, instead serving up two rolling chunks of smooth tech-house funk. We're particularly enjoying title track "The Awakening", where wonky vocal samples, lilting guitars and bubbly electronic motifs ride a killer, synth-bass driven groove. "Don't Let Me Down", meanwhile, is a creepier and more off-kilter affair, with hissing Motor City cymbals, post-acid electronics and sweeping, soundtrack style chords rising above a wonky tech-house groove.

Review: Chicola, the Israeli veteran producer, unleashed over two decades of music production experience on the excellent 'Could Heaven Be' LP in late 2017. Now with these remixes we hear a different groove among all the familiar elements on tracks such as "Could Heaven Be" (Ruede Hagelstein remix) which sees the Berlin veteran deliver an adrenalised exploration in dancefloor drama, the Johannes Brecht remix of "If He Thought You Ever Changed Your Mind" takes the track into deeper and more contemplative territory and Karmon's hi-tech rendition of "Velvet Afternoon" goes for that Innervisions/Exit Strategy kind of sound.

Review: Riddim division: the Chopstick Dubplate crew get busy on the versions once again with four well known hooks and twist them up into something brand new. "Conversational Version" is one of the most distinctive hooks that you'll be air pianoing along to within seconds, "Confessions" takes us deeper into the dancehall with some expert bass sizzles on the breakdown while "Entertaining" swags with horn heaved bless throughout. Those with a penchant for the darker side need to jump on the junglised "Grab Yuh Gyal" before the ridiculous twanging plucks and savage amens of "Ducks" brings the curtain down. Excursions.

The Circus influence is clear from the off as shimmering lead bass synths grind away come the breakdown, packed with colour and energy across smooth melodies and pounding drum work. Excellent work and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for the duo!

DJ Chupacabra - "Turf" - (7:16) 130 BPM
from $1.90
Review: For its fourth release, RTCT makes an inspired choice. Crisco and Chupacabra may come from opposing ends of Italy, but both are united when it comes to their love of deep house, techno and even a side-serving of garage. On "Exodia" and "Turf", the pair tap into the atmospheric end of 90s UK techno and the gentler end of 2-step to create bubbling, evocative grooves. "Motrola" follows in a similarly widescreen vein, but in this instance, the aesthetic is underpinned by a warm Detroit techno rhythm. While "Endless Summer Dream (Asleep)" sees the pair up the ante thanks to some squelchy acid, their focus remains on dreamy, melodic dance music, audible on the breathless break beats of "Endless Summer Dream (Awake)".

Review: Danny Serrano has an impressive catalogue that includes releases on labels like Truesoul, Relief and Terminal M. For his latest EP, he teams up again with DJ Chus' Stereo Productions. "Bassmore" features a soulful female vocal - not entirely dissimilar from the ones on vintage Inner City - unravelling over a layered, percussive house arrangement that resounds to snare rolls and loose hi-hats. Factor in a pulsating bass and the overall effect is devastating. Clarisse Records boss Mendo is tasked with the remix and he rises to the occasion in style. The Swiss producer makes the arrangement leaner and more linear and puts the vocals through a filter, but without losing the original version's dynamic sound

Review: Nick Curly and Gorge's 8 bit imprint is still running strong out of Germany's proud city of industry: Mannheim. Following up a terrific release by progressive house elegant Danny Howells, it is over to current hero of the British tech-house sound Darius Syrossian. The Leeds based DJ follows up releases on top labels like Hot Creations, VIVa Music and Sankey's Music with the Fixation EP - featuring four house slammers, right in time for the Ibiza season. From the thunderous "Kapan", the funky main room energy of the title track and the tough rolling functionality of "Curzon" that is just perfect to lead-in to the peak time.

from $1.90
Review: Having DJed for two decades, Jeffrey Hek and Jimmy van de Geijn decided to bring their vast experience behind the decks to the studio with the establishment of Deep Dimension. On "So 1992", the pair's rave background shines through as an MC raps over a pounding techno rhythm that's powered by a huge hardcore bass. "Cold Rush" is also steeped in rave culture, from its Frankfurt Trax referencing title to its bone-crushing drums and bleak waves of acid. "Generation X" is just as intense, with the pair opting to unleash layer upon layer of rave hooks and breathy female vocals over a tough rhythm. Rounding off the release is the wonderfully catchy break beat of "SpaceSjaal" ('92 UK Rave edit)" - no wonder everyone from Joseph Capriati to Dax J supports their music.

Review: With a new artist album that embodies his sensuous deep techno sound due for release, Derek Carr's star is firmly in the ascent. However, on Pioneers, he shifts his focus somewhat. As its title suggests, "Acid Bath' is a jittery 303 workout, albeit one that is led by a bouncy bass. Similarly, on "Hanging on a String", the Irish producer drops tough drums and a linear rhythm, all the time tempering this harder sound with one of his trademark sweeping string sequences. He also reverts to full-blown deep techno on "Athenia" and "The Pioneers", where breezy synths and symphonic melodies unravel over wide-eyed, electronic grooves.

Review: Dirtbox Recordings make a highly anticipated return here as they enlist the production services of DJ 10SION and MC FERNQUEST for a high energy shell-out as the pair join forces on their new single 'Bassline Man'. The original is a wavy roller, driven by dirty oscillations and sharp 4x4 rhythms, coupled with Fernquest's rave ready vocal ammo. On remix duty, first up steps Trace for his explosive neuro drum and bass overhaul of the track before B Side strips it all the way to a cheeky 2-step viber. Excellent stuff!

Review: Brazilian don Patife returns with his new gen wingman Vangeliez. Following last year's "The Vibe Is Comin'" on V's Sun And Bass album, the duo step up with a full quartet of dreamy soul rollers. "Living Together" features MC royalty Fats and Stamina in a harmonic sun-kissed stand off over a light afternoon groove while "On The Floor" takes us much deeper into the night with an LSB-style deep roll. Flip for more MC premiership as DRS unleashes more wisdom on the soft, restrained groove of "Ain't That Bad" before "Unexpected" closes with the darkest treat of the set; a loose drummed shaker that sounds like it landed 15 years ago on Soulr. Accolades don't come any higher.

Finally we hit "Dorian" where the most brutal skin scorching metallic bass awaits. Don't have nightmares.

This latest release is no exception, but that's not to say it isn't exceptional. All the way from Daytona Beach in Florida, Justin Weems aka Faint Waves, brings music to fall for in a big way. The Paradise Lost EP features the soothing, shimmering celestial new age tones of the title track, which receives a neon-lit rework by San Francisco's Dream Chimney. Then the chilled-out balearica of "Sea Of Dreams" also gets remixed: this time by Sentrall Records Rollmottle who takes it into deep and dark kosmische territory.

Review: Guillermo Gonzalez continues to churn out the hits at a furious rate. This tasty EP on Disco Fruit follows two other missives last month (one EP on Empire Studio, the other on Poetry in Motion) and marks the Hotmood man's sixth release of 2018. He begins with the loose and undulating, Herb Alpert-goes-house warmth of "Let's Ride", before turning a chunky Latino roller into a weighty slab of bass-heavy mid-tempo house on EP standout "Mr Funkyman". Elsewhere, "My Disco Collection" sees him re-cast an obscure disco-funk cut as a rolling disco-house loop jam, while "Clean Cuts" is a subtly beefed up take on a sweet and sultry soul cut from the 1960s.

Review: Ki Creighton's Under No Illusion is back with Illusionists Vol 3, where the Annan based label boss (and Uber Carlisle resident) teams up with Makanan on the tough rolling main-room people mover "Countdown", the always reliable Huxley delivers the evocative dancefloor drama of "Half Moon" and Brett Gould & Majesty team up with what seemed like only White Isle hedonism purely in mind: on the terrific "Get Low". Following up some terrific releases by Yost Koen, Cloonee and Jay De Lys - it is further proof that this label is on fire at the moment.

Review: Jedi gets a little post watershed with his latest EP for Audio Overload. We won't go into explicit details, but let's just say his light sabre is throbbing wildly right now. "Goth Girls" gets messy over a stripped back and heavily swung swagger jam, "Bullet Dodger" takes us straight to Belgium on a rocket of lasers, "Kiss Her Pussy" takes us down town with Jedi's sharpest and funniest vocal sample/drop combos ever. Finally we have "Play That Track" that hits and heaves a Majistrate style wide armed synth riff. Kiss kiss bang banger.

Review: Despite having just two Eps to his/her name, JLTZ is a name to watch out for. The title track on this EP is a deeply hypnotic affair, shrouded in clanging, metallic chords and supported by a dubbed out groove. On "Anxiety", the mood darkens, as the producer drops pounding kicks and eerie, textured filters. "Insomnia" sees JLTZ retreat to the same kind of hypnotic sound as "Paranoid", albeit with a stepping rhythm providing support, while closing track "Dejection" is reminiscent of the throbbing, snaking techno of Mike Parker. Underpinned by slivers of metallic percussion, it brings this impressive Ep to a close in style.

Review: There is such a buzz around the breakbeat scene at the minute, with new levels of creativity being reached almost every week. This time around we take a quick look at the latest in a run of high quality releases from Base Industry, this one coming from Josh B by the name of 'Hands Up'. Right front the get go we are gifted some skillful vocal slicing along with smooth organ chord progressions and some sweeping atmospherics. All of these sit comfortably atop smooth breakbeat rhythms, providing us with a fantastic final product!

Review: Kanine pulls no punches with this hefty one track wounder on Low Down Deep. Stark, spacious but riddled with an infectious riff you'll be singing for weeks, there's a latent funk rumbling deep beneath the venomous jumpy riff. Yet another one of his highly anticipated (see the forthcoming banger "Dancefloor"), "Bloody Knuckles" is another K.O from the big K. Okay?

Review: Annan's Ki Creighton is resident DJ at Carlisle's Uber club and runs the respected Under No Illusion imprint - which in recent times has delivered wicked music by Jay De Lys, Yost Koen and Cloonee. He strikes out on his own here for Manchester's Kaluki with a bit of help from Shyam P on "Night Owl" - a serving of bouncy and pop-inflected tech house in the vein of Hot Creations or Repopulate Mars. There are some terrific remixes included worthy of your attention too: Secondcity's extended remix is tough rolling groove action for the main room at peak-time, while Jansons extended remix is a right banger featuring a powerful rhythm section reaching near tribal moments.

Review: Wake up call: Kings Of The Rollers get us up and at 'em with their first full EP on Hospital. As you'd expect from everything else they've done so far, it's a full vibe assault that celebrates the whole scene but specifically kicks jacksy. "Euphoria" lives up to its name with its skin rippling arpeggio before hurling us into the spacey darkness, "Get Set Go" is the XXXXXL sized flabby bassline rotter of the set while "Rave Alarm" takes their droney metallic bass signature to a whole new level. Finally we have "Running Man" which conjures up memories of the late 90s / early 2000s with its tightly coiled sci fi synths and bullbozer drop. Alarmingly good.

Played by: Sould Out
Review: Fresh from inspired outings on Smokin' Beat, Chopshop and About Disco, Oscar Levantine makes his bow on Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe's ace Dikso imprint. Turn first to "Chorus", a filter-sporting mid-tempo disco-house jam whose heady grooves and mind-altering samples continue to rise, fall, build and rise again throughout the track's seductive six minutes. The Mexican producer ups the tempo considerably on "Fairground", a bolder and more percussively energetic affair rich in bounding, bouncy house drums, looped piano refrains, swirling chords and the kind of sweet, dewy-eyed female vocal samples that make you want to hug complete strangers while a hundred percent sober.

from $1.90
Review: Loco Dice's recent third album, Love Letters, was packed with typically tough dancefloor grooves and, more surprisingly, a string of high-profile collaborations. "Out of Reach", made alongside fast-rising Dutch producer William Djoko, was amongst the finest of these. For this single release, the duo has served up two similarly inclined takes. First up is the strobe-friendly original version; a skewed and trippy chunk of sleazy early morning funk that places Djoko's half-sung, half-spoken vocal above a backing track overflowing with mind-altering sub-ass, trippy riffs, mangled electronics, swirling samples, vintage Fairlight stabs and bustling beats. The bizarre but brilliant intricacy of the backing track can be heard in all its wonky, funk-fuelled glory on the accompanying vocal-free Instrumental mix.

Review: Fresh from reworking Remake's 1992 progressive house cover of Vangelis' "Blade Runner" theme, Maceo Plex returns to the Ellum Audio family he co-founded with Alta in 2011. This time round, he's got company, too, with veteran Texas outfit Paradigm Shift (whose "Requisition" was featured on Plex's recent Fabric mix CD) lending a hand on title track "Mutant Pulse". It's a typically atmospheric, peak-time-friendly affair, with trippy female spoken world vocals weaving in and out of an alien techno groove and spine-tingling pads reminiscent of the Moby classic "Go". "Mutant Radio" is an altogether darker and more hypnotic interpretation, with spaced-out stabs and ghostly chords accompanying Plex's fuzzy, on-point grooves.

Played by: Heizo Murakami
Review: Following well-supported singles on Simma Black, Madtech, DFTD and Toolroom, tech-house stalwart Made By Pete makes his bow on powder house megalith Crosstown Rebels. In its original form, "So Long" is something of a humid and intoxicating treat, with Jem Cooke's ethereal vocals seemingly drifting above a humid, feverish backing track rich in shuffling, tribal-influenced drums and a booming bassline reminiscent of Jaydee classic "Plastic Dreams". Solomun steps up to remix first, giving the track a more obviously electronic feel and intoxicating tech-house vibe, before Audiojack makes it bigger, bolder and brassier. Bonus cut "Modify Saturn", a deep Afro-tech cut blessed with dense percussion, nagging electronics and suitably stretched-out breakdowns, is also impressive.

Played by: Roberto Rodriguez
Review: Missing Link is only the second release so far on Stripped Down, but it's just as essential as the debut EP from Claudio Ricci. In its original format, the title track features brooding woodwind, chilling piano keys and a plaintive, haunting vocal. A stellar group of remixers have been lined up to provide remixes: first up Sasse turns the track into a clicky, minimal house that breaks down into Munimuni & Seelenwald's orchestral woodwind. Kollektiv Turmstrasse, who are best known for their work on Diynamic, align with the original track's sensibilities. However, they don't eschew the dance floor and drop a frazzled bass that is sure to have the requisite effect. Lastly, Tiefschwarz deliver a version that strips back the melodies and focuses on a rolling, percussive rhythm that is populated by bursts of filtered percussion.

Review: Having heard a tonne of great things about this producer, we genuinely couldn't wait to get stuck into the futuristic sounds of Mykroboy as he presents his brand new 'Open Arms' EP. We kick off with the title track 'Open Arms' which is an immediate chill zone, pulling together soft xylophone based melodies and groovy UKG style drum performances for a heavenly combination. Next up we have 'Horizon' which continues along the garage themes, this time incorporating spacious synth textures and Asian inspired plucked melodies, creating another genius piece of soundscaping. We finish up with the unusually named 'DA(C)jA Vu', an incredible piece of electronic harmonisation, meshing together dubbed out piano melodies, heavily reverberated vocal expressions and subtle tripletted drum work, resulting in a masterpiece of a composition.

Review: As if serving up his debut album on Gradients wasn't quite enough deep dub heat this year, Denver's Myxed Up returns with two more trips. A provocative exploration of LSD experiences on both sides of the coin. "Acid Test" saddles Ken Kesey up on a lolloping subby camel and watches them stride out into the deserts of their own minds. "Fools" flips for a more starker, darker experience with a droning bass, icy ethereal pads and a grim Nixonian vocal warning. Tune in, turn on, drop out...

Review: Boysnoize Records simply have not stopped releasing killer music for the past ten years. The German outfit, run by Boysnoize himself, has kept genres evolving and styles trending, from electro to house and anything bass-related. This new release from Naeem feels like a match made in heaven, with the sounds of "sway(e)d" making for the perfect soundtrack to this summer's grime comeback and keeping us loved up with this blend of '03 beats and curb-side vocal mannerisms. The "TV" version is more sparse and focussed on the percussion shots, acting as the perfect 'dub' version, while the instrumental gives you a chance to lay down some Plastician-like sets, if you're up to the task...

Review: Those who've been following the U.S deep house scene since the late 1990s should be familiar with Natural Rhythm, a prolific production duo whose releases have appeared on Robsoul, Large Records and, as here, San Francisco staple Moulton Recordings. Typically, the original version of "Feel Like Dancing" (track two) is a lolloping, sun-kissed affair, with hazy vocal samples, clipped guitars and colourful electrofunk synthesizer splashes dancing above a chunky West Coast groove. Homero Espinoza and Ivan Ruiz's "Deep Mix" - a perfect blend of jaunty synth bass, dreamy deep house chords, hazy electric piano motifs and no-nonsense beats - is arguably even better, while bonus cut "All Above Love" is a bass-heavy, basement-ready San Fran bumper.

Review: Need For Mirrors continues to own the game with his hyper prolific, super smart and unapologetically restrained goodies as he makes his debut on Bcee's Spearhead with four more sublime jams; "Crystalline" is an exercise in uplift with its crisp arpeggio and clipped string sample, "Cassiopeia" is Joe Moses at his most delicate as he explores the ivories with introspection, "Mermaids Tail" is lavish piece of aquatic drama that sits somewhere between Seba and Klute while "Bamboo" closes on a mournful sci fi step. Need For Mirrors wins again.

Joining him on his first Cre8 EP is fellow Manny mandem Bou who kicks off with the wild reggae fusion on "Tumble Weed", elsewhere we see the 'Rider get mean with a waspy Q&A on "Fame" then pure savage with the rattling techy jumpy hybrid "The Niterider". Finally we head south to Kettering for a grimey alien shockout with Meladee. Watch the ride.

Review: Paige Julia steps out of the Totally Roasted Digital roster and onto the Forest Biz books, making for a wonderful evolution to this artist's sound and vision. Prestige In An Honorless Society starts off with the lingering 'wobble-bass' of "Source", before turning even nastier and more intricate thanks to the fast-firing half-breaks of "Honorless" - also guided by a sweltering wave of grainy bass. "Black Sheep" is slower, darker and moodier, while "Bereft" lingers at a mid-tempo stride alongside subtle infusions of shuffling drums, earth-shattering low frequencies, and an altogether 'doom metal' kind of aesthetic.

Review: Two years on from the release of his debut EP on D.KO, Pascal Pamme AKA Paso has finally got round to readying a follow-up. He begins with the meandering, sample-rich goodness of "Idocracy", where hazy Fender Rhodes chords, held-note organ chords and buzzing synth-brass stretch out across a jazzy deep house rhythm, before showcasing his MPC beat-making skills on the house-not-house deepness of "Fuzy" [sic]. Over on the virtual flipside, title track "Limited Perception" swings and struts in all the right places, peppering a head-nodding, hybrid hip-hop/house groove with jaunty jazz-funk bass and warm, butter-rich chords. To conclude, Pamme delivers a slightly more driving mid-tempo number that benefits greatly from a warm and funky bassline.
