Review: To date, Beats of No Nation's compilation style "Dance Ideas" series has been uniformly excellent, so hopes are naturally high for volume five. We shouldn't have worried, because it's every bit as essential as its predecessors. Conformal kicks things off with the sunrise-ready deep house breeze of "Gathering", where tactile chords and undulating synthesizer lines ride a bubbly drum machine rhythm, before Lavan doffs a cap to S3A and Folamour via the dusty sample-house warmth of "Feels Good 2 B Good Again". Jus Jam steals the show via the slowly building downtempo bliss of "Attraction Rules" - all Hammond organ doodles, enveloping chords and new jack swing beats - while LPTLG offers us some classic deep house smoothness in the shape of "Spleen".
