Review: It's about that time again: bring on the summer season on The White Isle for 2019 where top British label Cr2 is guaranteed to bring the vibe on this year's Ibiza Opening Party various artists compilation. Featuring a whopping 28 tracks, the highlights are not limited to: the legendary Carl Cox on "I Want You" getting on a tough bounce courtesy of Josh Butler's remix, the unstoppable Camelphat doing their 2017 Re-Fix of DJ Wady & Patrick M's "Hulk", though to functional and peak time tackle like Green Velvet & Junior Sanchez' "Heavy Mental" (Mihalis Safras remix), DJ Jeroenski's "Back Once Again" (Max Chapman remix) and timeless feel good classics revisited on The Face Vs Mark Brown's "Needin' U" (Dimitri From Paris remix) and Adesse Versions cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" (extended mix).
Review: It's that time of year again: London's CR2 are heading over to Miami for the Winter Music Conference - where deals are made and stars are born. It's electronic music's biggest party of the year and these guys have a swag of surefire dancefloor bombs to set the club alight. Miami Underground 2019 features almost three dozen grooves that will all take your fancy we're pretty sure, with highlights not limited to: Aussie outfit Sneaky Sound System doing their thing on "Can't Help The Way That I Feel" (David Penn remix - extended mix), Chicago legend James Curd on the lo-slung disco funk of "Free Me" (extended mix), Reelow delivering some tough rolling tech on "Bad Swinger", CASSIMM bangin' one out for the main room on the druggy "Work Out" (extended mix) and Leeds favourite Jey Kurmis (Hot Creations) getting deep down and dirty for the afterhours on "About Knapp".

Review: Label Worx sub label present the very best of house music emerging from the fertile Croatian scene - the eighth edition no less. The influence of UK tech house, stateside funky house and the modern sound of progressive house all make their mark on this terrific compilation showcasing the nation's youngblood. Highlights came courtesy of: DJ Kingdom on "Time To Get Down" (Jay Williams remix), Bruno Costa's terrific "Mineral" (original mix), the raw energy of Nytxpress Musiq's "Just Once" (original mix) and James Meid on "Sometime" (original mix).
