Review: Decibels formed in one almighty bonding session at a rave in Northampton. Once the disco biscuits wore off, they found that they still liked each other and set about knocking out remixes that wowed the likes of Pete Tong and Tensnake. Now signed to Nein Records, they're even releasing their own compositions, which leads us to here. Although the original of "Regulator/Moderator" doesn't appear, loads of killer remixes do, the best of which is the 80s 'sophisti-pop'-channelling Bufi mix - if synths could ever be ornate, this would be it.
Review: Comprised of the results of a competition run by Bleep, Filtered gathers together ten unsigned artists cherry-picked from over 4000 submissions. As you might imagine the style ranges all over the shop, but there's really stand-out material on offer. Gidi's "Move" rolls on an addictive breakbeat, using a powerful soundsystem sub bass for maximum rave delight at the drop. ImagineIAM excels with his deranged "Slang", as a room of shouty vocals duel with mind-boggling kinds of organic percussion arranged into a punchy kind of funk. S P A C E S also deserves special mention for the razor-sharp slices and awkward time signatures that make "Apologies" such an ear-grabbing listen.
