Review: Diynamic Music's ongoing, compilation style Four To The Floor EP series has long been a reliable source of club-ready fodder. This 21st edition is no different. Josh Gigante steps up first with 'Attention Seeker', a thrillingly sleazy peak-time concoction in which nagging electronic motifs ride a surging, arpeggio-driven bassline and crunchy drums, before Jepe joins the dots between warehouse-ready heaviness and locked-in European tech-house on the dark and unsettling 'Tanzwerk'. AIKON's 'Folk' is a more curious - but no less impressive - concoction, with classic electro melodies and 80s goth-rock guitar sounds riding a snappy drum track, while Spada's 'Music is the Way' is a gorgeous, sunrise-ready deep house number full of progressive house melodies, emotive chords and bubbly electronics.

Review: According to the label, Global Entry is a place for psychedelic, left-field music, and it sounds like they have succeeded in their approach. This compilation starts with the slightly ominous, mid-tempo chugging groove of Iorie's "Dangerous Love", before moving into "El Teatro de lso Suenos" from PAAX (Tulum). Based on a similar tempo, it goes deeper, with evocative vocals unfolding over piano keys and a melancholic groove that calls to mind Ibizan sunsets. Anthony Middleton of Audiofly fame adds some techy beats on "Energy is Currency" but even here the mood remains reflective thanks to the use of dreamy synths and a female vocal intoning the words to Simon & Garfunkel's evergreen the Sound of Silence.
