Review: ALVA are Raphael & Alexandre: a young deep house duo based in Paris who appear here for local imprint Pont Neuf. Right here are some well executed perspectives on classic styled sounds. Fittingly titled French Kicks, this EP is their second for the label and follows up the impressive grooves on the Mental Scopes EP from last year. The gutsy yet smooth charm of "Cecile Du Flow" will appeal to fans of local heroes such as DJ Steaw, Flabaire or Lazare Hoche with its evocative chords, sexy Rhodes and swing fuelled rhythms. Equally adequate for early evening mood lighting is the neon-lit pump of "Pont 909" until we are treated to two dubby and hypnotic jams were the duo really hit their stride. "Harry Poppers" with its spellbinding chord progression and the very Swiss sounding "Drumsteak" calling to the mid-noughties throwback sounds of Agnes, Quarion or Baaz.

Review: Aix en Provence-based imprint STRCTR first tickled our fancy last year with a trio of ear-pleasing, floor-friendly EPs. Since two of those were multi-artist, compilation style affairs, it's little surprise to find that release number four is similarly structured. First up, Alva wraps jaunty, jazzy synth riffs and sun-kissed guitars around a bouncy and swinging deep house groove ("The Wall"), before Armless Kid delivers the kind of smooth and quietly soulful instrumental deep house number that could once have graced the B-side of a Prescription release. Thanks to some ear-catching acid motifs and fluid, near fluttering chords, Mara Lakour's "Timecode" has a much more futurist, deep space feel, while Ortella's "Digital Detox" wraps decidedly intergalactic, dub techno style motifs around a thumping, peak-time ready rhythm track.

Review: For its first outing, freshly minted deep house label Virage has decided to put together a sampler style EP featuring cuts from members of their extended crew. Pierre Moritz kicks things off with the rubbery bottom end bounce, dreamy chord sequences, loon bird samples and cerise-hued synthesizers of "Fewnolder", before Alva doffs a cap to the likes of Nathaniel X, Ron Trent and Chez Damier on the chunky U.S deep house warmth of "Jean-Paul Groove". Elsewhere, Paris Groove reaches for the squeezable acid bass and rolling drums on peak-time bumper "Portails", while Madcat plays around with spacey synths, jacking beats and heady old school vocal samples on solid closer "Yes I Do".
