Review: Still firmly on his house tip, former nu-disco don Alakalino releases new jams at a furious pace. Here he treats us to another deep cut, the sparse, percussive thumper "Spooky", which sees tough beats treated with eerie sound effects and narrated in a nonsensical US vocal drawl. On the digital flipside Enzo Leep delivers more house, but more in the melodic minimal vein - all chiming arpeggios and broken beats in the style of Kolumbo.
Review: London born, Ibiza dwelling DJ Ben Hoo takes up the reins for Get Physical's annual Ibiza compilation, featuring the rising stars/hit predictions for the tech house sound in summer 2018. Hoo has been a staple of the Berlin based institution in recent years, so they couldn't have found a better mascot for the label at present. His mix serves up 15 killer tracks, all available individually for your convenience. Highlights include his remix of System Of Survival 's "Kutting" (feat Vhelade) which delves deep into the exotic, the rhythmic grooviness of Spain's Clara Brea on "707Minor7" and NG Trax head honcho Nima Gorji - who appears twice with his trademark rolling/tribal tech-house of "Look Back" and "Delusion" respectively.
