Review: Six years old and still sounding future, longstanding break merchant and OG junglist A-Sides reissues his third artist album Mysterious Vibes. As always with A-Sides the vibes are high and far reaching as they range from dreamy whirling liquid soul such as "Ain't Nobody" to gurgling wobbled-out halftime such as "One Seven Five". Other highlights include the mystic space funk stepper "Hibiscus", the skank-packing horn blazer "Roots & Culture, the gun-toting gutter grizzler "Doppler Diss" and many more. Ageless.

Review: Already responsible for EPs this year on Semantica and Figure Jams, Albert Van Abbe now makes his debut on the long-established Echocord Colour. Klangbilder is more streamlined and direct than some of the Dutch producer's earlier material.The first "Klangbilder" revolves around tough, rolling drums, steely percussion and eerie synth lines that insinuate their way through the percussive arrangement. On the second instalment, a nagging analogue sound prevails thanks to Van Abbe's use of shuffling drums, rough tones and bleep sequences. "Klangbilder 3" is more reflective and slower, as he paints an atmospheric picture, while the fourth and final iteration continues to explore this mood with a wonderfully expansive sound scape.

Review: Apart from a trio of self-released EPs, Los-Angeles artist Astronautica has remained loyal - and relevant - to the Alpha Pup imprint. This here is Edrina K. Martinez's fifth outing on the label, coming through in the form of a remix EP that reinterprets her recent LP, Gemini. There's her own version of "Palm Springs", this one being even hazier than the original and a lot more dance-centric, followed by Gypsy Mamba's remix of "*69", a wonderfully off-kilter rendition of the already twisted original - a true example of bass innovation. Toy Light also remixes "Palm Springs", producing what is essentially an ambient-dub version of the original track, and Elusive's take on "PNW" can only be described as deep house for the euphoric. A wonderfully diverse EP from Alpha Pup.

Review: Austin Ato is Colin Bailey of Oban, Scotland who has released previously on the likes of Fantasy Streetwear, Phonica and Futureboogie. He is back, this time on Man Power's always reliable Me Me Me imprint with The Sound Of : this is a belter of an EP which features the funky and lo-slung party vibe of "Dah Dah Dah" or "Ben's Vibe" doing the business in super soulful fashion - the latter in particular with its George Benson sample. Also of worthy note, check the neon-lit euphoria of "Maelstrom" nailing some throwback acid house vibes. Following up terrific releases on the label by Elliot Adamson, Artist Deleted and Vyvyan - the goods just keep on comin'!

Review: For this brand new feature length Album project, B.O.S.E readies his wits and sharpens his productive spears, making ready for a scintillating spectacle as 14 tracks of electro fire come to fruition. The constant themes of the album are that of 80's synth pop, with electronic synth machines playing out drums and melodies on 'Planet Miami', 'Miami Got The Bass' and 'Bass Is The Place To Rock The Place'. There is also a constant breaksy theme running riot, as 'Bass In Your Mutha Fuckin' Face' and 'Hip Shakin' Bass'. The album screams retro electro, with our highlights being the hardcore rolls of the title track 'Evolution' and of course the vibrant arrangements of 'Miami ABC's'.

from $1.96
Review: Benjamin Damage became part of the R&S family last year, and this single offers a taster for his debut album, due for release soon on the storied label. The title track is an evocative affair, touching on early 90s intelligent techno's emotive, fragile melodies while keeping a focus on the dance floor thanks to the use of a stepping groove. On "Binary", Damage also conjures up a melodic aesthetic, only this time he expresses it through the use of surging chords and a skipping rhythm. Both tracks are understated but distinctive and bode well for the UK producer's imminent long player.

Review: Billy Bogus debuted his Caribbean House project on Bearfunk last autumn, serving up a sumptuous single ("Gong Bong") that brilliantly joined the dots between dub disco, string-laden Balearica and picturesque nu-disco. This follow-up debut album naturally contains that superb track, plus seven more hard-to-pigeonhole cuts that variously doff a cap to '80s new wave pop dubs ("Night Drive"), distorted, techno-tempo analogue wonkiness ("Lonely Man"), Scandolearic space disco headiness ("Love By Proxy"), flash-fried dub disco ("Jesus Freaks"), Chicago jack-tracks ("Nature Nature") and blissful, delay-laden pop oddities ("Streets Like Noodles"). There's a lot going on throughout, but that's no criticism; it's simply one of those albums where you'll hear something new on each successive listen.

Review: Hailing from the Northeast of England and now located in London, DJ-producers Blackhall & Bookless are beginning to forge a strong name for themselves. Their Jaunt imprint has been doing great things in recent times too, with top tracks by the likes of Artefact, Luke Hess, Deep'a & Biri and Hiver. The label head honchos take up the reins for the latest release: from the fierce dub techno workout "Forward", the jagged and texturised "Voyage" that is scraped straight off the factory floor and the peak time warehouse thrasher "Ocean" that's as much evocative as it is powerful. For something different, the duo prove their deft hand at dark ambient music on the eerie and immersive "Occupy".

Review: Calling all Brainiacs! Brian's back and he's packing some serious jungle heat. "Anything & Everything" is a roasty skanker that's precision tuned for the current heatwave thanks to its hurricane drums, soaking wet basses and refreshing dubwise horn section. "So Easy" maintains the Jamaican flavour with a surging, urgent vocal and a jet engine drop that could scorch your ear hairs from a 10 mile radius. Easy does it!

Review: Brain-basher number one: German heavyweight Brian unleashes the parts of last year's massive "Forward" EP to a whole host of super-respected peers. The results are every bit as forward-thinking as you'd hope. Highlights include Bassface Sascha & Phlex maintaining the piano-laced vitality of "Inside The Vaults", Serial Killaz adding heavy layers of jungle murk to "Kill A Drum Pan", Bou continuing to show expert trippy science on his take on "Red Eyes" and DJ Hybrid stretching the elements for a roomy skanked out jungle twist on "Moving On". That's the tip of the remix iceberg. Time to push things forward...

Review: Much like Throwing Shade, the sounds of Berlin's Catnapp have a tendency to blend electronic and r&b in fine style. Neo-pop could go some way in explaining it, but we like to talk in technical terms, and the fact that Monkeytown Records have snapped her up is enough for us to feel safe about the prospects of some reliable bass-weight. In fact, although "No Cover" can be enjoyed as a harmless pop tune, almost hummable in its sway and vocal mannerisms, there resides a wicked gust of bass underneath its wings, while "Easy" much more poignantly stars its position as a cold-cut slice of bass music, twisting and falling apart amid harsh beats and distorted vocals from Catnapp herself.

Review: Children Of Zeus touch down on the First Word imprint with their opening album for the label, amalgamating all of their skills and aesthetics so far...as heard on the selection of great singles they've put out thus far. Travel Light is, first and foremost, a listening experience, with constant hints of the dance floor, reaching out to the jazz and bass heads at the same time. "The Story So Far" opens on a dreamy sequence that goes on to instil an unforgettable session of beats and percussion, guided by an unmistakably British sound that cross the boundaries between rave and downtempo. We leave it to you to discover on which side of the spectrum you reign supreme...

Review: The one and only Oris Jay relaunches his seminal Texture imprint with three crucial rumblers from long time confidant Chris Innasound. It's bubblesome business from the off as "Tall Bear" flexes a trippy underwater vibe with strange humanised harmonics, "Drop Sine" sends out a signal with creeped out J:Kenzo style minimalism while "Popped Off" flips the finale with a smouldering 85 halftime shakedown. If you know your bass music, you'll know how important the return of this label is.

Review: Following a lauded appearance on Particle Zoo Recordings, Rich Hall (no, not the grizzled American comedian) and Megan Jones bring their Cuz Electric project back to Midnight Riot. As label boss Yam Who is a big fan of their work, it's little surprise to see him deliver a brilliant remix of "Wonda's Revenge" that sounds like a nine-minute tribute to Odyssey with added kaleidoscopic synth flourishes. The duo's original version of the same track - an electric guitar sporting, arpeggio-driven nu-disco throb-job - follows, before we're treated to two versions of "Holding On". While the duo's original version is a dreamy, rush-inducing Balearic disco treat full of spine-tingling '80s synth-pop chords and jaunty piano riffs, it's Bachgenaur's slap bass-boasting boogie revision that hits home hardest.

Croaking and smoking with a precision chiselled riff that adds more and more lasers on every 16, it's a spunky number that drops into a remarkably euphoric breakdown before going in for happy slappy seconds. "Not Impressed" shows Damage Report's slightly moodier side with a floor sweeping scuzzy sub and tightly-rattled percussive licks. Get loaded.

Review: The latest missive on admirable Amsterdam institution Night Noise comes from an unfamiliar artist, San Francisco's Dance Station. In fact, the outfit is a collaboration between old friends Layne Fox (member of long-running dub disco collective 40 Thieves) and former Leng artist Josh Praus. Title track "Sirens" is an absolute doozy, all told - a cosmic, deep space dancefloor excursion influenced by the arpeggio-driven throb of Patrick Cowley, sleazy Italo-disco and ricocheting, delay-laden proto-house. The duo hurtles further towards the stars on "Beige & Yellow", a spacey chunk of acid-fired cosmic disco straight out of the top drawer. LA Decadense reworks "Sirens" and adds a fuzzy dub disco flavour, while "Roliva" delivers a wonderfully psychedelic take on "Beige & Yellow" that's probably capable of making perfectly sober people hallucinate vividly.

Review: On its release back in December, we heaped praise on the debut full-length from Berlin-based Welshman Dauwd. Here, some of the album's "evocative deep house" cuts get the remix treatment. Romain Azzaro dons the Rouge Mecainque guise to deliver contrasting versions of "Murmure": the wonderfully sleepy, slowly unfurling "Walking Remix", where picturesque synths and intoxicating noises rise above bongo-driven hand percussion, and the wonderfully hectic "Running Remix", which is built around a high octane Afro-jazz groove. Elsewhere, Vakula delivers a typically drowsy and atmospheric, ultra-deep house revision of "Macadam Therapy", while "Analogische Memories (Piano)" is a beautiful, beat-free excursion that sits somewhere between Nils Frahm and Nicolas Jaar.

Review: Given Demuir's lengthy career and impressive discography (he's previously released on Farris Wheel, Stickman, MadTech and Nite Grooves, amongst others), you'd expect this EP of high-profile collaborations to be rather good. It is, of course, with the Toronto producer and pals flitting between Dixieland jazz-sampling "boompty" business (Tommy Largo hook-up "On Dat High"), full throttle, cowbell-driven heaviness ("Good Ol Days" with old pal DJ Sneak), and seductive West Coast deep house warmth (Mark Farina collaboration "Mr Black & The Dance"). Interestingly, the latter excursion comes accompanied by a chunkier Dub mix and a mix-friendly "Stripped Back Beatz" drum tool.

The mysterious duo Elfenberg take care of the remainder of the EP, with the Afro influenced tribal house of "Kigelia" taking you deep into the esoteric, as does "Satao" however this one's on a more exotic tip, powered by elaborate string arrangements and traditional instrumentation.

Review: Holland's EOD drops his first studio album, Named, on the ever-impressive bbbbbb imprint, each respective party rarely failing to deliver quality dance vibes, whether that's d&b, electro, or some straight-up tech-gabber. Well, the truth is that there's a bit of each of those elements on this LP and, much like the pioneering styles of artists like AFX, Boards Of Canada, or even Squarepusher, it sounds like it's been made with a truthful ear and a keen attention to every sonic detail. Jungle is at the core of these fifteen arrangements, guiding the pace and freedom of the drums, but there's also plenty of abstraction amid the breaks, whether as sample glitches of drones, making it particularly singular. To one and all, this is an album which should not go overlooked. Tip!

Erbman pays homage to the sticky stuff once again with four track bounty pack and from the moment the Randall style rolls and low drone bass of "True 2 The Game" starts to fly out of the speakers you know he's not messing around. Elsewhere "Field Of Greens" adds a little stripped back percussive jungle fare, "Jus Roll" adds a little funk flare with its rippled wah wah textures and "Check This Out" goes all out Urban Takeover with its classic wobbled out riff. Smoking.

Review: While many of the expansive reissues on Defected's 4 To The Floor sub-label have focused on U.S house hits, here they serve up a genuine UK house classic: original Junior Boys Own anthem "There But For The Grace of God" by Terry Farley and Pete Heller under the Fire Island guise. Their cheery, sing-along soulful house original version (the "Live 'n' Funky Mix") comes accompanied by pretty much every remix there's been to date. Amongst the highlights are a bustling U.S garage dub by Roger Sanchez, a sublime ten-minute vocal take by Joey Negro, a wonderfully loved-up "Super-Dub" by X-Press 2 (which, funnily enough, reminded us of Black Science Orchestra jam "Save Us") and a thrillingly muscular, Sound Factory-friendly dub by Farley and Heller under the alternative Roach Motel alias.

Review: Following last year's loan move to Shall Not Fade, Fold (AKA DJ/producer Rob Glassett) returns to his regular home, Aus Music. It's his first release on Will Saul's label for almost two years. There's much to enjoy throughout, from the tribal-inspired drums, humid aesthetics and deep Afro-house vibes of "Knobbly Bobbly" and even deeper "Aegean Sea" - a track that simply exudes drowsy, sun-kissed warmth - to the blissful melodies and snappy drums of the undeniably delicious "Marimba Echoes". Shall Not Fade regular Mall Grab provides a fine remix of that track in which he re-imagines it as an acid-flecked chunk of two-step, Afro-deep goodness.

Review: The Raw Tactics discography has always been an impressive one, and the catalogue has just been improved again with the release of this brand new new three track project from Fork & Knife. Here we have been treated to a sumptuous slice of techno intertwined with bass themes, as the title track combines glitched out arpeggios with rolling drum work and distorted 808 subs, resulting in a really groovy overall composition. On the flip side we are then treated to some more creative energy with 'Canyon'. This is a grimey stinger, incorporating beautiful organic woodwind motifs with scattered drum punches, lively bird sounds and explosive horn stabs, for a really well thought out arrangement. This is definitely an EP with a wide range of sounds, perfect for numerous DJ's to slide into the mix.

For this release we see France To UK leap aboard the DocOlv imprint for a tasty new single, built around combing moogish, techno-esc bass textures with the unpredictability of UK Funk rhythms and general drum work. The result is a fantastically unique composition, suitable for many DJ's to be spinning around the UK right now.

This creative adventure is already at the heart of a masterly experimentation, shifted and totally sharpened by these producers and beat-makers who naturally merge black music and electronic influences for a unique live performance. The funked-up, fun loving tech house on "Sauce Bogosse" has an undeniably 'French Touch' as does "Nils" but this one is on more of a dusty and hip-hop flavoured tip with urban and latin leanings.

We begin with the stuttered bass chops of 'Guacamole' before hitting up the more subtle, acidic synth sounds on 'Job Centre Jive'. Next up, 'Network' which is fuelled by growling bass sounds, grinding away in the lower frequencies before finishing up on 'Swish' featuring an amazing vocal performance from James Lyons.

Review: When two deepsmiths combine forces on the ultimate blueprint label: Toronto's Gremlinz and London's Jestas build on previous collabs such as "The Axe" and "Arowana" with this sublime four piece. "Nessus" surges with heavy atmospheres and an early Breakage style break. Wait for the second drop as some crucial dubby ripples enter (and consequently change) the game. Elsewhere "Departed" shoots us to the edge of the cosmos with a late 90s style two-step, "The Drift" is pure jazz with its shuffled drums and cavernous introspection while the title track closes the show with a good old fashioned 45 King tear up. There's nothing empty about these promises mate.

Review: Osaka's GROUND is no newcomer to the world of experimental electronics, with the artist's last official EP having come out all the way back in 1995 as a self-releases 7" on the forever-defunct 595-76-8239 Music. Sunizsm is his debut LP, with a few of these tunes already out in the last few months on separate EPs, each one of them backed by a series of killer remixes, of course. The LP as a whole, however, is a startling beauty, dipping and diving from dance music to the abstract, rich in Ground's Japanese aesthetics. "Logos", one of the tracks released already, is a tripping bundle of percussion and Eastern vocal chops and, among our other favourites on here, there's also the off-kilter chimes of "Hanasai", the moody bass tones of "Feel It", and the hypnotic journey that is "Sunizsm" itself. House-not-house for the DJ-not-DJs.

Witness the return of German acid kings Hardfloor, who serve up some euphoric tunnel vision on the terrific "Thisishowwedo", Ovum head honcho Josh Wink delivers a fitting tribute on the deeply evocative "Dame Deep" calling to mind the early '90s glory days of Peacefrog or Ferox. Do Not Resist The Beat's Milton Bradley dons the Alian Rain alias once again on the adrenalised rush of "Contact" while last but not least: Bloody Mary chips in for something a bit more uplifting and groove oriented with "Mono". All killer and no filler on this one.

Review: Originally released last year, tracks from Jakub Alexander aka Heathered Pearl's Detroit get the remix treatment on Ghostly. Baltra turns "Under the Bridge" into an atmospheric, break beat techno number, while Matrixxman transforms the same track into a tranced out acid track, led by tough drums. A third version from Fort Romeau is different again, with stream of consciousness vocals, raw beats and a gloriously powerful bass prevailing. The label has also tapped three artists to rework "The Packard Plant". Sophia Saze's take is a frenetic, tribal techno workout, Justin Cudmore offers a more subtle, acid-soaked electro track, and working under his 400PPM alias, Shawn O'Sullivan delivers a teased out, analogue jam.

Review: Hard working Dutchman HP Vince is no Chopshop newcomer, having previously released numerous solo and collaborative EPs for the much-loved rework label over the last 18 months. Here he provides a sequel to April 2018's Get Down Funk EP, in the process delivering three more celebratory edits-not-edits. He begins by tidily rearranging, dubbing out and beefing up Whispers classic "The Beat Goes On", with the resultant cut sitting somewhere between loopy disco-house and classic disco. His love of filter tricks, swishy noises, big builds and even bigger drops comes to the fore on horn-heavy disco-house outing "The Brass Song", while stand-out "Just Think" sticks a rocket under a breakbeat-driven funk classic with beguiling, party-starting results.

"Pump" is even more adrenalised and fierce with its jacked vocals, funk bassline and pumping rhythms, while "Fever" pushes the threshold even more on this tough rolling groove for the main room at peak-time - there's a killer bassline on this one which is sure to get the hands in the air!

Review: Zurich based DJ and producer Jimi Jules is one of the most promising upcoming artists within the international underground. With previous releases on top labels like Superfriends, Cocoon and local imprint Zukunft - he tops all that by being picked as selector for esteemed Berlin institution Watergate's 24th mix album. Mysterious dancefloor drama is guaranteed on the deep and moody acid trip entitled "Abandoned Soul" (his contribution to the mix) which receives a brooding and epic rework by Plangent main man Recondite - taking the track deeper into the late night when the strobe light and smoke machine will accompany it just perfectly. Closing track "Othervision" is a soulful and slo-mo tech house cut, that's perfect to lead into the morning hours just before the lights come on.

Review: It may have taken eight years, but Joey Negro has finally got round to putting together a follow-up to his superb Backstreet Brit Funk compilation. Like its predecessor, this sequel shines a light on Britain's under-appreciated musical response to the U.S soul, jazz-funk, disco and electro scenes of the late 70s and early 80s. On the whole, the showcased tracks are altogether deeper selections than those found on volume one, meaning obscure highlights come thick and fast. These include - but definitely aren't limited to - the low-slung disco-funk of Rick Clarke's "Potion", the glassy-eyed breeziness of Paradise's "Stop and Think", the footworker-friendly jazz-funk riot of Touchdown's "Ease Your Mind" and the samba-soaked carnival flavours of "Brazeila" by Brazeila. Oh, and a killer dub of Janet Kay's overlooked Brit-boogie classic "Eternally Grateful" that has never before been released.

Review: Albert's Favourites co-founder Jonny Drop returns to action, this time with boogie-obsessed duo Lucid Paradise, AKA E Da Boss and Ishtar. "32 Degrees" is a wonderfully warm and groovy affair, with Lucid Paradise providing slick, Cromeo-esque vocals and synth squiggles over a head-nodding, neo-soul-influenced groove. Remixer Modified Man decides to drag the track further towards the dancefloor, upping the tempo to 113 BPM and opting for a bubbly, '80s boogie-meets-nu-disco vibe. Of the three versions, it's his Extended Remix, which boasts a deliciously warm and loved-up intro that subtly builds anticipation, that hits home hardest.

Review: Josh Baker made his bow on See Double earlier in the year, contributing the spacey, bleep-heavy classic tech-house roller "Frequencies" to the label's first compilation. Here the producer continues his retro-futurist adventures in the company of Jaxn, whose impassioned, falsetto vocals weave in and out of ragged acid lines and jacking drums on EP standout "Explore (Original Mix)". The accompanying "Rich NxT Mix" is an altogether warmer, groovier and more positive interpretation, abandoning the acid lines in favour of dreamy chords, rubbery disco bass and sparkling pianos. Those who prefer Baker's tougher and more mind-altering approach would do well to check out "Black Lines", which wraps trippy electronic bleeps and fuzzy analogue motifs around a snappy rhythm track.

Review: As the matter-of-fact title makes clear, this tasty four-tracker delivers fresh re-rubs of tracks from KiNK's superb 2017 album Playground. First in to bat is Dusky, who re-casts "Perth" as a saucer-eyed chunk of rush-inducing, big room-friendly heaviness rich in darting synth stabs, held-note synth-strings, bustling beats, celebratory piano riffs and heady old school vocal samples. In typical fashion, Radio Slave man Matt Edwards turns "Teo Techno" into a dark, sleazy and mind-altering early morning thumper, while Josh Wink re-imagines "Five" as a restless, undeniably psychedelic throb-job. Arguably the best remix, though, comes from Matthew Herbert, whose "Funnel Dub" of "Yom Thorke" gleefully joins the dots between his glitchy, micro-house past, swinging Afro-tech and otherworldly alien funk.

Review: The tremors from Levela's Genesis album still persist well into 2018 but we're still feeling seismic shockwaves. Now in remix form! Sub Zero and Limited strip back and rebuild "Koodana" with a riff that could raise the roof of five stadiums combined. Kanine takes "Memory Lane" and switches it to fastlane without so much as a seatbelt while T>I strips back "Tyrant" to its bare elements and adds his signature cosmic flurries and latent funk. Finally Dub Elements close the remix earthquake with a nasty dancefloor take on "Cowabunga". Another day in paradise...

"Lunatic" takes us on another tour of Gee's sprightliest of psyches with a high toned barking bass riff. "TanTron" closes the sampler with a triple x-rated robot romp where things get a little oily and weird. Two samplers in, we must be pretty close to the full release now...

Review: The second release on Wagon Repair offshoot Freedom Engine is again courtesy of co-head Mathew Jonson - and here's another round of remixes of his anthemic track "Decompression" from 2004. This round of versions sure have their work cut out for them when remixing such a seminal classic - and here's how they fare out: Cynosure head honcho Mike Shannon serves up a moody and tripped-out tech house perspective, the unusual trio of GMT (Phil Moffa, Guy Gerber and Seth Troxler) stay true to the original, although lace it with some funky tribal rhythms on their mix while dub techno veteran Deadbeat offers up an impressive downbeat deconstruction. Lastly, Colombia's Natalia Escobar - who is hot off a killer release on EXIT Records diffusion imprint Heart Drive goes deeper down the spiral on her dark ambient perspective.

Review: Tokyo imprint Diskotopia comes through with some dusty EBM acid from newcomer Messiah Syndrome, a young producer who is all about the post-modernist dance flex. "Your Whole Style" is a banging, hypnotic swarm of hard-edged 303 craziness, loaded and charged with a dark-core bass that has something in common with the d&b sound of the late 90s; "Roses XVI" is no lesser evil, spewing out a similarly bad-tempered techno roll with a distinctive industrial edge. Killahs!

Review: Dortmund based producer Mr. Fries returns to Wolf Music for his third outing for the London label, with yet more sample heavy/MPC saturated cuts that follows up a terrific EP on Philpot. WOLFEP 045 opens with the sexy late night mood lighting of "Nocturnal" with its creamy Rhodes melody and dusty drums, the funky "Work" and its bass driven/Moodymann influenced groove, and the sunny open-air deepness of "Getright" which you could imagine hearing at a outdoor party on a summer Sunday in Berlin. Speaking of which, the fine EP closes out in blissed-out style with the very Money $ex/Tartelet sounding urban blues of "Thesimplethings" nailing that deep sound of the German capital.
