Review: With their pedigree firmly established on labels as vast and varied as Skint, Hudd, Liebe Detail and Audiomatique, Bora and Vinyl step over to Robsoul for an extensive journey that was inevitable; the duo's scratchy, uncompromising loopy tech funk fits Robsoul's repertoire so perfectly it's nigh-on marriage material. Highlights across this five track banquet include the wah-wah guitar-slapping loops of "Old Beats", the warped jazz and Chicago-flavoured boompty-boomp beats of "Back 2 Back" and the lolloping double bass on "La Danza". This won't stay secret for long - jump on it now!
Review: London's Decay imprint can be relied upon for tough and reliable tech-house grooves, following up some great ones by the likes of Hector, Tijn and Javier Carballo. Next up is Carlos Aguilar aka IAAM from Barcelona (Music For Freaks/Flashmob) who teams up with Ibiza's Javi Bora - this guy has racked up credits on VIVa MUSiC, Robsoul, Elrow and Suara. They offer some deep and funked-up house music for sunny days on the rather rhythmic "Poseidonia", but it's all about Canadian veteran Jay Tripwire's remix wicked remix up next- which injects more dancefloor dynamics into it. The funky house sound of old (think late '90s Defected) makes a comeback on the blissful "Sunshine" until another legend of the North American scene - the one and only Doc Martin - steps in for a trippy remix.
