Review: Having previously appeared on Chop Shop Digital and others, British scalpel specialist Touchsoul has decided to launch his own imprint. First up on the label is a split EP featuring a quartet of deliciously summery disco and jazz-funk reworks from Touchsoul and pals. Touchsoul's own contribution is "Floyd's Solution", a deliciously bumpin', low-slung rework of a track previously cut-up by Dr Dunks on his recent Disco Deviance 12". Beaten Space Probe's hustlin' "Slow Down" is probably the highlight, though Manmade Music's lazy jazz-funk groover "I'm In Dub With Nancy" runs it close - as does Ian Blevins' darkroom disco-houser "Feed Le Flame".

from $1.98
Review: Having delivered a couple of quietly impressive solo EPs for Keep It Zen and Saft, as well as a highlight of Disco Bloodbath's label as one half of Al Gobi, Ian Blevins pops up on Lovefingers' ESP Institute with a pair of tracks that the LA label claim will "boost your Serotonin levels". Certainly, "Hannibal" is a definite mood enhancer, with bubbling, high-pitched electronic melodies and spacey chords riding a fizzing, Detroit-influenced analogue house groove. "Welcome Aunt Poly" is an altogether deeper and drowsier affair, with rich, stretched-out pads reclining over a shuffling, cowbell-laden rhythm. It feels like the sort of track that could induce a "moment" when heard at the right time, despite its' relatively simple - if not less delicious - construction.

Certainly, A-side "Hannibal" is a definite mood enhancer, with bubbling, high-pitched electronic melodies and spacey chords riding a fizzing, Detroit-influenced analogue house groove. Flipside "Welcome Aunt Poly" is an altogether deeper and drowsier affair, with rich, stretched-out pads reclining over a shuffling, cowbell-laden rhythm.

Review: Ian Blevins has been busy making a name for himself on ESP Institute and Futureboogie, but now he comes to Not An Animal with a slightly different approach that still speaks to the skills the upstart producer has in his sonic arsenal. "The Birds" is a focused, steady-tracking cut for the deeper end of the night, but there's some serious weight in those drums and the heavily processed vocal snippets pack plenty of malaise. Man Power then step up with a "Tropical Bastard" remix of the original, cracking the curtains to allow a little light into the mix but stopping short of over-cooking the mood. "Locate Yourself" finds Blevins in tracky techno mode, and it turns out it's a style he can nail just as easily as the more organic tones he's known for.

Played by: Alkalino
Review: This latest missive from Patrick Luca's Saft label sees ESP Institute regular Ian Blevins join forces with label-surfing deep house producer NY*AK. On "Grasscutter", a hazy mid-tempo concoction, the pair successfully joins the dots between woozy, Chaos In The CBD style deep house, and more R&B-influenced bass-house flavours. Their dusty, soul-flecked deep house influences are explored further on the more up-tempo "Good Feeling", while "Work It Out" smartly combines tipsy synth bass and head-nodding disco drums, with rich keys and delay-laden vocal samples. New York-based Bristolian DJ Nature serves up a fine interpretation of the latter track, successfully giving it a looser, warmer and more organic feel via fluid piano lines and hip-hop influenced house beats.

Review: More sumptuous house moves from the Bind Jack's Journey crew on this third round of The Return Trip series which features contributions from a cast of lesser known production talents. There's something immediately gratifying about the emotive weight to opener "Dul Doen" from Yrd, the manner in which the synth lines seem to sear out of the channels grabs you willingly. From here Thom Brooke discards with drums in favour of toying playfully with vast clouds of synthesized texture which still emit a rhythmic pulse making "Penway" a good way to bridge a set. If you buy house music on wax you will probably recognise Ian Blevins from his work as part of Al Gobi; present here in a solo capacity, "AA" finds Blevins laying down a dreamy, loose little jacking number which contrasts nicely with the stripped back icy melodic electro of "Lacanau" by Causa.
