Review: Next up from Kassian, a tidy turn into the enigmatic as we take in three futuristic yet abstract originals, exploring the vastly unexplored expanses of breaks-infused bass music. We begin with the heavily delayed vocal stutters and dance-inducing sub rumbles of 'Yena', a title track that bleeds originality from its first utterance, before 'Yami' deploys a much more percussive feel, again utilising unexpected vocal chops and eerie synths in wicked style. Finally, 'Pulgueiro Baile' adds a whole new layer of clicking percussion to the mix, on top of a super acidic backdrop to round this collection off with a tasty twang of nostalgia.

Review: Faux Poly presents Remixed:003, enlisting a lineup of friends and collaborators to breathe new life into some foundational sounds from 2022. Edmondson kicks off the compilation with a captivating garage reinterpretation of Kassian's "San Junipero", the track that marked Faux Poly's inception. Ste Roberts follows with a vibrant dancefloor remix of "Actions', while Manuel Darquart adds an intricate, Italo-inspired touch to "Off World Vehicles". Poison Zcora's impressive adaptation of "No Clear Shape" draws from funk, afrobeat, and broken beat; blending melodic chords with off-kilter melancholy. Christian Nielsen takes a curveball approach, infusing a darker techno aesthetic and unexpected dub breakdown into his mix mix, while Blomfelt & Narby, Long Island Sound, Earthnut, Tom Jarmey, Olive T, and Joel Blaise contribute diverse remixes, blending big room trance, electronica harmonies, garage vibes, and lo-fi grooves.

Review: In 2003, amid a shifting landscape of closing record stores and evolving electronic music genres, Phonica Records emerged as a haven for dance and electronic music enthusiasts. Founded by Simon Rigg, Tom Relleen, and Heidi Van Den Amstel with backing from The Vinyl Factory - Phonica aimed to be a welcoming hub for all genres. Starting quietly, the shop gradually gained a strong reputation, fueled by the founders' ties to Koobla Records. Phonica thrived in its early years by championing emerging genres like electro house and minimal-micro house from labels like Kompakt and Perlon. In 2007, the Phonica record label was born, evolving into a platform for both staff and emerging talents, featuring early releases by now-established artists such as Peggy Gou and Four Tet. In 2023, celebrating its 20th anniversary, Phonica showcases its journey with 20 Years Of Phonica - a compilation boasting 18 exclusive tracks from established and rising artists across the label's diverse musical spectrum. Hot tips include tracks by Willow, Dorisburg, Ron Basejam, Roman Flugel and more!

Review: Dam Swindle's Heist Recordings celebrate their 10th anniversary this year, and here we have the fourth in a series of EPs marking that milestone. The EP opens with the surging, pulsing 'Alfa' from Crackazat with its insistent, rolling piano line, before Andy Hart injects a little old school funk/soul flava on 'Epsilon Girls'. Makez's 'Different Planets' adds an Afro-style chant to the classic deep house blueprint, Kassian take us into more stripped-back territory with the fluid '8th Movement' and its familiar "music!" vocal sample, before Nachtbraker play us out with 'Hamdi', a slightly more leftfield, bottom-heavy shuffler. The quality standard is high throughout, so here's to another decade!

Review: Shall Not Fade's annual birthday compilations are always worth a look, not least because they tend to be packed with plenty of previously unreleased material from label regulars, friends and newcomers. This seventh birthday edition - the label's fifth compilation in total - is another epic, with 28 high quality tracks jostling for your attention. The track listing reflects the label's eclectic but largely dancefloor-focused approach, with highlights including the stomping big room techno darkness of Alan Fitzpatrick and Reset Robot's 'Alpha', the organ-rich New Jersey style peak-time house bump of Lis Sarocca's 'Oasis Floor', the bumpin' speed garage revivalism of 'All The Girls' by Main Phase, the warped, MC-sporting two-step wobble of Killjoy and Kwam's 'Active', and the deep and dreamy breaks/two-step fusion of 'Overcome' by Adam BFD.

Actions - (5:12) 132 BPM
Review: Following the Chance Is Our Greatest Ally release on their Faux Poly label earlier this year, Kassian return with this varied EP. "The Machine" is a mellow affair, with a stepping groove and skipping drums underpinning woozy chords and a mysterious vocal sample. The combination of these elements makes for a heady, hypnotic track. On "Offworld Vehicles", the pair pivot to a leaner, more direct dance floor sound; while repetitive vocals still feature prominently, they are realised against the backdrop of resonating bass and a clanging rhythm. "Actions" represents another change in style, with Kassian mining the influence of Basic Channel to deliver a dubbed out, soulful techno track.

Review: Following a string of well-regarded releases for the likes of Shall Not Fade, Heist and Phonica White, Kassian pop up on a brand new label, Faux Poly. They're in fine form from the off, merrily manipulating machines on the analogue-rich, arpeggio-driven tech-house/deep house fusion of 'San Junipero' - all dreamy chords, druggy bass and crispy percussion - before opting for a deep two-step-meets-peak-time-tech-house vibe on 'Akhala Falls'. The Hackney-based duo continues to impress on closing cut 'Metropolis', where early '90s style Orbital electronics (think raw, jumpy riffs, bold hooks and trippy motifs) bounce above a driving, all-action groove.

Review: Earlier in the year, Hackney twosome Kassian joined Shall Not Fade following a few years spent hopping between labels including Phonica White, Heist and Groovence. There's a more forthright, peak-time-ready feel to the pair's second Shall Not Fade outing, with opener 'Breathe' offering an alluring amalgamation of driving beats, stabbing bass, trippy female vocal samples and echoing, warehouse-ready motifs. They opt for a cheery, sparkling and sun-kissed sound on the bouncy, melody-rich 'Aerial', before wrapping shimmering synth sounds around a crunchy breakbeat, glassy-eyed deep house chords and UKG organ riffs on excellent closing cut 'London Orbital'.

Kassian - "8th Movement" (Pitto remix) - (6:39) 126 BPM
Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from Heist Recordings' annual Round Up releases - label artists remixing each other, basically - so we'll crack on and talk about the music on offer. Highlights come thick and fast throughout, with our picks including Alma Negra's deliciously percussive and groovy take on Scan 7's gospel-tinged Motor City gem 'All For Me', Scan 7's breezy, Latin-tinged Detroit house revision of Crackazat's 'Class One', Crackazat's Ethio-jazz-goes-sunshine house rework of Alma Negra's 'Dakar Disco', and Kassian's driving, warehouse-ready remix of Nebraska's 'Dip & Flip', which makes great use of thumping beats, undulating electronics and a seriously dirty analogue bassline. As the old saying goes, this seventh volume in The Round Up series really is "all killer, no filler".

Crush - (7:05) 128 BPM Hot
Decades - (6:12) 129 BPM
Eastern Arps - (7:26) 130 BPM
Nuances - (5:28) 130 BPM
Review: UK house music love childs Kassian make their way to Shall Not Fade with the Crush EP. Securing each of the tracks here with the pair's undeniable skipping rhythms, grooves and hi-hats, a sumptuous kick drum in "All I Know" squeezes its woozy atmosphere that bit more - with a soulful vocal to boot! The title-track throws down a techy set drums next to a melodically influenced bassline and percolating set of synths. With freestyle cosmic jazz taking effect in "Nuances", breathy vocals snippets are furthermore thrown into into a warm mix of cascading chimes and doubled up kick drums perfect for that next sun-glazed and mecholic trip to the dancefloor.

Apollo (Leo Pol remix) - (7:25) 126 BPM

Played by: Denyl Brook
Review: When they first appeared on Heist Recordings in 2018, Kassian were considered raw but promising talents. Since then, the Hackney-based duo has gone on to release a string of fine EPs for the likes of Groovence and Phonica White. There's plenty to set the pulse racing on their return to Detroit Swindle's label too, starting with the 'walking' disco bass, sparkling synth sounds, tactile chords and bustling grooves of lead cut "Apollo" - a track that's later given a classic-sounding deep house makeover by Leo Pol (check the jazzy solos and Afro-tinged beats). Elsewhere, "8th Movement" is a bounding chunk of U.S style deep house that sounds like it could have been recorded sometime in the late '90s, while closing cut "Brass Hammer" is a slightly more muscular chunk of peak-time deep house.

Review: To celebrate notching up ten years in the game, London blog and party-turned-record label SlothBoogie has decided to offer-up their most ambitious release to date: an epic collection of previously unheard cuts from a mixture of imprint regulars and like-minded friends. There's naturally plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, with highlights including the sparkling jazz-funk-meets-deep house sunshine of Levan's "U R Beautiful In The Face", the deep, breakbeat-driven dreaminess of Philippa's "That's What I Mean By Free", the piano solo-heavy disco-house bump of Leatherette's "Your Love", and the dub disco-meets-acid house heaviness of "Rewind Run" by Pablot. Throw in similarly impressive contributions from Kassian, Luvless, Casino Times and Soul Wun (the classic jazz-house of "Thank You, St Germain") and you have a must-have collection.

Shuffling Words - (5:38) 127 BPM Hot
Ex-Culture - (8:10) 127 BPM
U Make Me - (6:23) 123 BPM
Review: The London-based duo of Danvers and Warren Xclnce, better known as Kassian, return to Phonica White, who put out their 2018 sophomore EP Faux Polynesia, with three brand new house/garage slammers. 'Shufflin' Words' itself tops what are indeed shufflin' drums with a spoken male vocal snip, warping keys and a horn-like synth stab, while 'Ex-Culture' rides a muted 4/4 kick with reversed-sounding keys and all manner of micro-sounds, the dubby bassline not arriving till nearly five minutes in. The sparser 'U Make Me', with its Bobien/Stingily/Dajae-like vocal, then completes an EP whose stripped, off-kilter thump all round suggests there might be quite a lot of early Madhouse records in Kassian's collections...

Alma Negra - "This Is The Place" (Hugo Mari remix) - (5:25) 122 BPM
Review: Heist's annual "Round Up" release, in which label artists remix each other, is becoming something of a tradition. This fifth volume is, of course, every bit as essential as its predecessors. All six tracks hit the spot, though we're particularly enjoying the bumpin', bass-heavy and driving take on Hugo Mari's deep and bluesy "Change Ur Ways" by label chiefs Detroit Swindle, not to mention Adriyano's effortlessly celebratory and swinging revision of the Swindlers' own "Cut U Loose". Elsewhere, Hugo Mari brilliantly joins the dots between tribal house and tactile, loved-up grooves on a stellar rework of Alma Negra's "This Is The Place", while the Kassian revision of Pitto's "You Treat Me Like A Fool" sounds like a 21st century update of Todd Edwards' legendary remix of St Germain's "Alabama Blues".

Review: Detroit Swindle's Heist imprint now presents Kassian, the brainchild of Joe Danvers-McCabe (Danvers) and Warren Cummings (Warren Xclnce). Both are regulars in the underground and wider reaching London scenes, with Warren being a co-founder of Abouttoblow and a previous studio producer at Worldwide FM, while Joe came through DJing and running nights in the eclectic world of Bristol nightlife before moving to London. The Premise EP features the deep and sulty late night groove of the title track - a perfect match for the Amsterdam based imprint, while "Bad Habit" goes for an energetic disco- acid vibe. Finally "Love 4:2" was decent enough in its original form, but the man DJ Nature works his magic as always by taking the track down even deeper and more emotive territory...
