Amy Dabbs

Rising star Amy Dabbs relocated from London to Berlin in pursuit of her musical ambitions just 5 years ago, and it's fair to say that lately her career has been on a steep uphill trajectory, spanning releases on Shall Not Fade, Aus Music & Heist, sets at HÖR Berlin, collaborations with the likes of Coco Bryce, and countless features on BBC Radio 1.

As the daughter of an original Northern Soul DJ, her deep rooted love of music can be heard in all of her productions, from her interpretation of classic house to her deeply emotive jungle tracks. Trusting in the mantra of doing what you love, Amy Dabbs makes and plays music she believes in, music that makes you dance and elicit an emotional response. She is a true multi-genre artist, and has become renowned for her distinguished, diverse sound, and undeniable flair both behind the booth and in the studio. She also runs her own label Dabbs Traxx, is a resident of club Renate in Berlin, and hosts a monthly show on Rinse FM.

With forthcoming releases on her own imprint, Future Classic and He.She.They, and a tour schedule that seems to get busier by the minute, Amy Dabbs has another big year ahead of her in 2024.

The Bobcat Special - (6:07) 128 BPM
Review: Early in her bourgeoning career, Amy Dabbs' jungle-influenced music was championed by Special Request and found its way onto the flash drives of all manner of hot DJs. On 'The Bobcat Special', Dabbs re-focuses on house music, offering up a quartet of peak-time-ready cuts seeped in classic house nostalgia. She sets the tone via the cascading melodies, thickset synth bass, crunchy drums and sustained piano riffs of 'Dandelion Theory', before cannily combining wobbly speed garage bass, stomping beats, dreamy chords and effects-laden spoken word snippets on 'Know My Mind'. Elsewhere, 'Feel It' is a sweaty, breakbeat-driven squelch-a-thon that doffs an oversized baseball cap to rave-era piano house, while 'The Bobcat Special' is a dirty, sub-bass sporting slammer smothered in 'Robin S' organ sounds and swirling synth-strings.

Nebel
Nebel - (6:26) 130 BPM
Review: Nebel is the German word for 'nebula', astronomically speaking, or a mist or haze more generally - a fitting enough title for a track that, while quite driving in the beats department, still has something of a hazy, dreamy feel. The work of a Berlin-based Brit who's known for her releases on Lobster Theremin (and who's also the daughter of a well-known northern soul DJ), 'Nebel' is a cut that'd work on deep and progressive/melodic house floors alike, its densely layered synths underpinned by warm, resonant bass that powers everything along while chipmunk-y, almost PC Music-ish vocal microsnips add a dash of human warmth at the top end.

Allure (Yazzus' Seductive remix) - (5:22) 150 BPM
Review: Lobster Theremin welcomes the return of emerging producer Amy Dabbs who follows up her Girl Like Me debut on Distant Horizons by splashing out on its parent label, Lobster Theremin. Throwing down a gauntlet of dub inspired UKG, house and R&B tracks, Amy Dabbs hits the spot with "Allure". Flirting with rave aesthetics all the more in "Second Thoughts", Dabbs keeps it instrumental, bassline heavy and close to the London broken beat scene in 'Take It" - hi-pitched vocals included - with a murky, lo-fi and computer music version of the title-track by Steel City Discs debutante Yazzus.

'Into You' EP
Deep In Your Love - (6:35) 125 BPM Hot
Into You - (4:38) 127 BPM
Milkshake - (5:55) 125 BPM
Review: Some genuinely impressive collaborative action here, as Berlin-based label hopper Amy Dabbs (whose previous releases have appeared on labels including Lobster Theremin and Shall Not Fade) joins forces with Toy Tonics twosome Athlete Whippet for the very first time. Opener 'Deep In Your Love' manages that tricky feat of being upbeat, grandiose and wonderfully loved-up, with Dabbs' vocal snippets peeping out above simmering strings, colourful electronic motifs, rubbery synth-bass and rolling house beats. 'Into You' is a dreamier and more spine-tingling affair that's as loved-up and groovy as they come, while closing cut 'Milkshake' is a colossal, hands-aloft piano house number that sounds like something that would have crossed over into the pop charts back in the mid 1990s.

DJ-Kicks: Cinthie (continuous mix) - (1:10:30) 126 BPM
Review: The joy of the digital download editions of the DJ Kicks series is not so much the included DJ mix - which, of course, is invariably excellent - but the accompanying full-length, DJ friendly tracks gathered by that edition's selector, in this case Elevate Berlin record store owner (and fine producer) Cinthie Christl. Her mostly club-friendly selections are little less than superb, moving from driving, organ-and-bass-rich U.S-style house (Terrence Parker, Niles Cooper, Sandil, her own exclusive 'Organ (DJ Kicks)') and life-affirming piano-house (Ruff Stuff), to deep two-step (Camion Bazar), slamming techno-funk (Anil Aras), dusty techno (Adriyano), deep breakbeat wooziness (Ben Hauke) and deep, dreamy acid jack ('Anna Wall'). In other words, it's a blindingly good selection - and Cinthie's DJ mix is wildly entertaining, too.

UC Beatz - "Make Me Feel" (Orlando Voorn remix feat Marina Trench) - (6:10) 124 BPM
Review: Heist Recordings' 'The Round Up' - an annual mini-album in which label artists remix each other - reaches its tenth volume. As usual, there's plenty to set the pulse racing throughout. Dam Swindle channel the spirit of Victor Simonelli's early '90s NYC house productions on a fine version of Cinthie's 'Won't You Take Me', Krewcial opts for a bouncy, piano-rich 'classic house' revision of Orlando Voorn's 'High', and DJ Sneak re-imagines Dam Swindle's 'Soul's Lament' as a rolling, string-stab laden slice of rolling Chicago chunkiness. Further highlights include Crackazat's loose-limbed, sun-soaked and synth solo-heavy revision of Krewcial's 'Owo', Cinthie turns DJ Sneak's 'Full Cycle' into an acid-and-filter heavy peak-time loop jam, and Orlando Voorn and Marina Trench join forces on a deep, drowsy and woozy rework of UC Beatz's 'Make Me Feel'.

Review: Last year, London DJ crew and party promotion outfit SlothBoogie delivered one of the compilations of the year, a wonderfully eclectic and on-point set entitled Dancing With Friends. According to the crew, they spent even more time carefully curating this welcome sequel. You can tell, too. Kicking off with the tactile, slow-burn deep house yearning of Soul Won's '96 to Albert Park', the 21-track collection ambles, strides and jogs between soul-flecked deep house (see Kemback's brilliant 'I Know What You're Thinking'), driving nu-disco (Jesse Bru), swirling deep jackers (Erik Ellmann's 'Private Talk'), loopy disc-house haziness (the always excellent Felipe Gordon), jazz-flecked acid squelch-alongs (Pablot), deep space sample house (Sam Irl) and high-octane, peak-time insanity (The Revenge). Simply brilliant.
