Review: For this one we dive into two very exciting originals as Instinct and Jack Michael join forces for a pair of dancefloor ready heaters, sitting nicely between the tech and garage divide, making them both super applicable across the board. Firstly, we take a look at the stripped back drum grooves and gnarly bass growls of Instinct's 'Operation', a dance ready roller to say the least! On the flip we then take a trip down a more breaks inspired avenue as Jack Michael deploys his nostalgic weapon in 'Hypa', a super bouncy, break heavy switch up, doused in sumptuous sub tones and subtle soundscaping. Two excellent original creations on this one!

Review: Hannover's Peppermint Jam predicts that 2018 will be a good year for house music - and what better to support this than with the third outing of the mighty Jam Files series. The label's very own Mousse T. starts the journey with a fresh exclusive, featuring the inimitable Peven Everett on the sensual jam "Pleasure" and even a remix of his anthem "Horny" from '96 by Scott Diaz. Elsewhere, there's also a rework of the classic "Never Enough" by Hamburg legend Boris Dlugosch, plus future classics by newbies like Studioheist on their deep and soulful "In Control" featuring the smooth as silk vocals of Andre Espeut. Also, Raw Instinct get their hot track "De La Bass" reworked by Montreal hero Fred Everything. Jam Files III is the perfect offering for every house music fan or 'music connoisseur' according to the label - we'd have to agree!
