Get Back To The Fonk
Get Back To The Phonk (original mix) - (6:09) 125 BPM Hot
Don't Stop (original mix) - (6:14) 126 BPM
In My Body's House (original mix) - (7:07) 126 BPM
Get Back To The Phonk (Josh Butler remix) - (5:34) 125 BPM
Review: Following a two-year gap in which he focused on his House Puff and Rutilence labels, Parisian house stalwart DJ Steaw returns to Kerri Chandler's Kaoz Theory imprint. The three original cuts on show are prime Steaw: rock-solid, high-grade house workouts full of audible nods to the halcyon days of US house in the nineties and early noughties. The headline attraction is 'Get Back To The Fonk', a bumpin', spacey and tactile chunk of peak-time ready deep house haziness blessed with plenty of percussive funk. Kaoz Theory regular Josh Buttler remixes, opting for a more loose-limbed rhythm track, echoing melodic snippets and cut-up, garage-style vocal samples. Elsewhere, 'In My House' is an organ and synth-sax-sporting slab of '90s New Jersey nostalgia and 'Don't Stop' is gently acid-flecked deep house hypnotism.

Circulation - "The Return" (1997 mix) - (7:13) 124 BPM
Review: Local Talk's celebration of the '90s house-inspired corners of its now vast catalogue continues, with the much admired Swedish stable serving up 12 tidy tracks from a mixture of rising stars and scene stalwarts. It begins with the tactile, sunrise-ready wonder of Sean McCabe's '6AM Dub' of his own superb 'It's My Life', and ends with the densely layered, loop-powered disco-house rush of Circulation's 'The Return (1997 Mix)'; in between, you'll find an array of highlights including Dirtytwo's 'Moody' (an on-point Mood II Swing tribute), the deep, Italo-house style colour of Willie Graff and Tuccillo's 'Sunday Morning', the vintage Kerri Chandler-esque bump of Tom Noir's 'Feel Me' and the rolling warmth of Art of Tones' 'Dirty Stories'.

DJ Steaw - "Le Petit Monsieur" (Brooklyn By Night mix) - (7:16) 127 BPM
Review: Nine months delivering the label's first 'Split EP', House Puff is back with a sequel. Once again, imprint founder DJ Steaw is featured, rounding off proceedings with two tidy tracks: the organ and sub-bass-rich, '90s New Jersey garage revivalism of 'Jazzy Thang', which features sampled shout-outs to Chicago originator Ron Hardy, and the more hypnotic, locked-in and sonically trippy 'Le Petit Monsieur (Brooklyn By Night Mix)', where angular, analogue bass, skipping deep house drums and ultra-deep riffs catch the ear. The EP's other two tracks come from label debutant Simon Shaw. He opts for undulating bass, woozy chords and warming riffs on tech-tinged deep house number 'Pipes', before opting for a chunkier, marginally more bumping deep house vibe on 'For The Love'.

Dance To The Rhythm - (6:30) 126 BPM Hot
I Can't Feel It - (6:14) 124 BPM
Star Steady - (7:17) 128 BPM
Review: Paris-based DJ Steaw may not exactly be a household name but he's no newbie, having made his debut on criminally overlooked French label Qalomoto Records back in the late 00s. And that experience shows, on an EP that starts off well and then gets better as it goes along! The title track blends acid house with just a hint of Balearica, while 'Dance To The Rhythm' is a garage-tinged deep house shuffler. But things really pick up for this reviewer once we get to the sheer retro New Jersey organ vibes of 'I Can't Feel It' and the headfried small-hours workout that is 'Star Steady', for which my notes read simply "Immense". Excellent work.

Aron Volta - "Room 101" - (6:03) 128 BPM
Aron Volta - "Lyre" - (5:25) 128 BPM
DJ Steaw - "Inner Beauty" - (6:03) 128 BPM Hot
DJ Steaw - "Cosmic Dream" - (7:46) 128 BPM
Review: Dutch DJ Aron Volta joins force with Frenchman DJ Steaw for the first in a series of exciting house EPs. Steaws' soul-inspired, bass-rich productions are the perfect counterbalance to the rolling groove on Volta's side, with 'Room 101' having a disco feel, whilst 'Lyre' borrows from trance sensibilities in its melodies. The bass is then turned up a notch in piano house cut 'Inner Beauty', borrowing from classic New York 80s House, and a more melodic, rhythmic 'Cosmic Dream' is a throwback fantasy for house oldheads. This first chapter will definitly convnincing you to keep your eye s open for next ones. Merci beaucoup House Puff records.

Review: Having existed for some time as a DJ booking and management agency, Chevry has decided to launch its own label. Fittingly, release one is a compilation that acts as a kind of showcase for the artists on its roster. There's much to admire across the 13 tracks, with highlights including - but in no way limited to - the sun-kissed acid house-meets-nu-disco bounce of Fasme's 'Acid Party', the deep and dusty, disco-tinged loop-house of Jeff The Fool's 'What You Need', the breakbeat-driven piano house rush of 'Stock Option' by Deborah Aime La Bagarre, the sub-heavy, low-slung deep house strut of DJ Steaw's 'Sunlight' and the late '90s, Dave Angel style techno-funk of 'Feel Your Soul' by Baccus. Psartek Phillipe's closing cut 'Muse About', a Shazz-esque chunk of acid-driven French techno, is also impressive.

Picpus - (6:33) 123 BPM Hot
Review: Fresh from fine 2017 outings on Madhouse and his own Steaward label, action man DJ Steaw returns to Hot Haus Records with a trio of deep house jack-tracks. "Heaven", a rush-inducing mixture of dreamy deep techno electronics, tactile synth bass, bustling beats and subtle "Pacific 808" references, is little less than a spine-tingling, saucer-eyed anthem, while "Picpus" sees the experienced French producer pepper a classic NYC deep house groove with hooky organ stabs and almost overwhelmingly picturesque synthesizer motifs. The EP's other cut, "I See You", is arguably the deepest of the bunch, though the producer's use of skipping beats and heavy sub-bass guarantees good dancefloor energy throughout.

Review: Following up some great tracks by Anthony Brooklyn and Times Are Ruff Parisian DJ Steaw, he of Steaward and Rutilance vinyl imprints, is back with the Aquarius EP on the Tommorow, Is Now Kid! Label. The title track is the kind soulful and emotive deep house that this talented producer is fast making a name for himself with, covered in just the right amounts of dust and rust but with a good dose of bump and shuffle too. "Off Side" is smoother, with those swirling and hypnotic Rhodes keys and mesmerizing pads do most of the most of the work over a clever 808 drum workout. "Let The Deep" goes for more of the Detroit style high tech soul flavour in impressive fashion calling to mind the housier side of early Underground Resistance or Octave One.

Review: Johan Cederberg, or otherwise known as HNNY (and strictly pronounced "honey"!), is Sweden's new house don and he's been at the forefront of Local Talk's impressive run of form as of late. For this latest release, Local Talk has put together nine edits by the man himself, all loosely based around the old-school Chicago house sound. You got slick, modernised edits of none other than Dj Steak, DJ Duke, Purple Velvet and Lee Webster, among others. In a nutshell, this is simply a bundle of great dance floor tracks, effective as either DJ tools or as stand-alone songs. Large up!

Review: Given the runaway success of Mad Mats and Tooli's Local Talk imprint - one of the first labels to go all-out on the '90s garage revival tip - it was probably inevitable that a compilation would appear at some point. Talking House Volume One presents a pleasing selection of label favourites (HNNY's "For The Very First Time", Will Maddams' "Stand In For Love", Gerd's remix of Mateo & Matos' "Maw Basics") and lesser-known gems (Fulbert's brilliantly uplifting "First Time House", Dirtytwo's Mood II Swing tribute "Moody", Andreas Saag's jazzy, string-laden "Back To Life"), with the odd unheard cut thrown in. Taken in context, it's excellent, and touches on many more vintage house and garage strands, whilst remaining current, than many similar releases.

Review: Following his recent outing on Local Talk, DJ Steaw pops up on Traxx Underground with a trio of bumpin', retro-futurist jams. There's something wonderfully straightforward about "Everydayz", with its relentless kicks and hi-hats perfectly matching the bold analogue bassline and fluid chords. The "Deep Mix" of the same track takes it further towards vintage house territory, while retaining enough dancefloor chops to entertain contemporary clubbers. Even better is "Morning Light", a deep and loose exercise in vintage deep house revival that benefits from some subtle production touches. Highly recommended.

White Journey EP
I Want - (6:14) 123 BPM Hot
Sky Hunt - (7:20) 122 BPM
Think It Over - (6:33) 122 BPM
Review: It seems near impossible for us to begin a review of a Local Talk release without mentioning the label's raison d'etre, namely reinventing classic New Jersey garage and dubwise New York house. They're at it again here, with SJ Steaw offering up three tracks of typically bumpin', organ-heavy deepness. Opener "I Want" leads the way, working cut-up vocal stabs around robust drums and nagging organs. "Sky Hunt" goes for more of a classic house approach (think Morales in his underground pomp, pre radio friendly drivel), while the breezier "Think It Over" is pure instrumental UK garage pressure.
