Review: Up next on Jamie Jones Hottrax imprint is ascendant Mancunian DJ/producer Joseph Edmund, following up great releases on Sola, Little Helpers and New Violence. The Pressure EP sees Edmund bang the party in proper style, as heard on the dirty acid bounce of the title track, the fierce and rolling funk attack of "Middle Man" or "Breathe" with its infectious and tough rolling groove - all after the massive drop of course. Hailed as one to watch by scene heroes such as Solardo and Mark Jenkyns - keep your eyes on Edmund moving forward into 2019.
Review: 2019 marks a landmark celebration in Saved Records history, as they call upon artists far and wide to commemorate their 15th birthday and 200th release. Nic Fanciulli's label has always stood as a benchmark for quality, whilst nurturing new talent and pushing the envelope as one of the most recognisable labels in dance music. An essential compilation for both dedicated label fans and newcomers alike, they present a compilation of all new exclusive material by a collection of the label's favourite DJs and producers. The ever reliable Dutchman Franky Rizardo delivers the entrancing "Air", rising Italian Alex Kennon delivers the tough rolling main room funk of "Who Cares", while Israeli veteran Gel Abril aims straight ahead with his direct groove "Entra" and the UK's own Denney & James Dexter deliver some dirty minimal tech house for the after hour on "C'mon" - among many more.
