Review: With his musical roots stretching back to early 90s hip-hop, it's no surprise that Nikolas Jakoby aka Lukas Greenberg brings a smooth, assured approach to his productions. Unsurprisingly, "Attention Musique" is a killer deep house jam, a sensuous French vocal sample rubbing up against polished chords and subtle but effective key changes. Plastic City is also to be commended for its choice of remixers. Veteran producer The Timewriter adds some bouncy bass and jazzy keys to the original version - as well as chopping up the vocal - to make for a lighter, more summery sound. Meanwhile, Greenster's version goes back to the mid to late 90s, with an evocative chord sequence and spine-tingling breakdown underpinning what has become a stuttering vocal sample
Review: German house legend Norman Feller, also known as Terry Lee Brown Jr. is back on Plastic City with a superb compilation of deep, late night grooves showing us where his long standing imprint is at right now. Starting out with the blissed out dub techno of BDTom's "Wallhack", it ends up covering the entire spectrum of what one could define as 'deep'. From Dave Pad's gorgeously melodic "Dream Clashes" and close associate David Keno and Jimmy Lesson's "Ocean Drop 5", there's classic U.S. Garage sounds courtesy of Brown Jr. himself on "Far Deep Holder" and even moments of more energised tech house like on Dalson's brilliant "Infriction". The compilation also comes as a continuous mix courtesy of Brown Jr. himself, as a bonus track.

Review: With a colossal 25 tracks, Deep House Extravaganza Volume 6 certainly delivers on its promise. It's an epic collection of snugly deep house nuggets that should tickle the fancy of anyone who likes their house warm, comforting and touched with the faintest whiff of sweat-drenched late night soul. There are forays into chunkier, more bumpin' territory (Junior Gee's familiar "Southside Hustle", the percussive thump of Caytaz and Patz "Watercat"), some pleasing Afro flavour (Qmusse's "Amasikko") and even a dash of pacey tech-house (Tan Atalar's pleasing "April"). The overall feel, though, is smooth, groovy and floor-friendly - and it delivers that with aplomb.
