Review: Already boasting loyal support from house jocks like Mark Farina and Phil Weeks, Joey Chicago releases a sweet and soulful slice of classic house with the looped and filtered "All Mine". Alongside mixes of this honey-dipped builder by Jason Wolfe and Jam Funk, another newie from JC - "So Sweet To Me" - repeats the formula nicely.
Review: 2016 marks a decade since Arlington Heights' Sean Biddle launched the digital-only Bid Muzik imprint. Here, he celebrates the occasion with a compilation that smartly gathers together some of the highlights of the label's first decade. There's plenty to enjoy, from the pulsating wobble bass, jackin' beats and pitched-down vocals samples of Biddle's own "Freak Show (Rescue Mix)", and the hip-hop sampling, cut-up house thrust of RED's "Werk It", to the horn-heavy funk-house thrills of Milty Evans' "We Are One", and Steve Nagarro's electrofunk-flavoured interpretation of Jangatha's super-sweet "When I'm With You". Throw in a couple of disco-house scorchers from DJ EQ and Greg Robertson, and you've got a rather fine package.
