Review: We've not been short on material from lion of Lyon Ethyene of late. Impressively, Essence of Adolescence is the Moonrise Hill Material co-founder's fifth solo EP in the past 18 months. As usual, the five-track set is packed with dusty, jazz-flecked samples, sumptuously soulful musicality, and the kind of slinky, sun-kissed grooves that seem to shimmy from the speakers in a haze of high-grade smoke. Along the way, he fuses deep house with starry jazz-funk ("Time Flies Baby"), sultry modern soul (impeccable, vocal-laden loop jam "Cherish The Day") and string-drenched Philadelphia disco (bouncy shuffler "A Common Soul"). Typically, he's also included a bonus instrumental hip-hop workout ("E-Fuel Ov'me").

Review: Ethyene is a producer, DJ and label manager from Lyon in France, delivering house music that finds its roots in the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and Manchester. He has had releases on top labels such as Moonrise Hill Material, Kolour LTD and Editorial to name but a few. He has patented a certain style of mid-tempo house music; applying a french touch aesthetic to disco, r&b and hip-hop sample references. He teams up with Moonrise main man Folamour on the neon-lit boogie down jam "Why My Love", some lo-slung soulful hip-hop on the lush "Why My Love", super sexy deep house for the late night (with an R'n'B edge) on "Loneliness Of The Shadow Dancer" and a sultry nu-jazz beauty to close out the fine EP affectionately titled "I Sold Yayo To Buy Kicks". Washington DC based Better Listen had a great run of releases back in 2017 with Thatmanmonkz, Chevals and Closed Paradise all appearing, and being particular standouts.

Review: For what it's worth, we believe that Ethyene was one of the underground success stories of 2017. This EP of deep house-tinged disco reworks for Editorial - his first release of 2018 when it appeared on vinyl a month or two back - follows inspired outings on Kolour LTD and Moonrise Hill Material. Turn first to the lolloping, loved-up sweetness of "Rains Over Occident", where glistening jazz guitars and toasty chords recline over a laidback house groove, before strapping yourself in for the wild disco ride that is '80s soul-meets-jazz funk bubbler "Walkin' In The Sunshine". Elsewhere, "Free To Give" joins the dots between loved-up modern soul and jazzy deep house, while closer "Solitary Sex" is a Rhodes-heavy broken beat number.

David Moran - "Weak" - (6:25) 119 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Roots For Bloom's consistently on-point SHAG Edits jams continue with typically steamy results. Ethyene takes the lead with a big swooning string sample and shuffling Buckethead style beats, LK brings up the rear slowly and smoulderingly with a delicious slo-mo cosmic chugger, Georgi Barrel's "Up The Hill" is another big sample groove with more than a whiff of Sneak's "Can't Hide From Your Bud" to it. Finally David Moran closes the show with the sexiest jam of the set; the boogie breaks badness of "Weak". Strong
