State Of Play - (5:12) 110 BPM
Review: Dele Sosimi's first collaborative EP with house producer Medlar, 2020's Full Moon, was a genuine musical triumph, so hopes are naturally high for the pair's belated sequel. Happily, the pair hit the mark from the word go, with opener 'Lord Have Mercy (featuring Tamar Osborn)' featuring a near perfect fusion of Afrobeat organs, loose-limbed old school house grooves and spacey, elongated synth solos. 'All About The Dance' somehow manages to be both deeper and cheerier whilst retaining the pair's trademark cross-generational and cross-cultural musical fusion, while 'Shine On (featuring Zito Mowa)' sounds like a cross between spaced-out house, deep Afro-disco and intergalactic jazz-funk. Closing cut 'State of Play', meanwhile, updates the William Onyeabor sound for the 21st century.

Interruptor EP
   
Interruptor - (5:21) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Cable Street - (5:16) 126 BPM
   
Turn Things Around - (5:59) 120 BPM
Review: Following his return to long-time home Wolf Music Recordings last year, Medlar pitches up on Delusions of Grandeur for the first time since 2018. He starts strongly with title track 'Interruptor', where pots-and-pans percussion solos and twisted Aisha vocal samples rise above a tough house groove, before joining forces with vocalist Kim Anh on the fluid, sun-kissed, analogue-rich deep house goodness of 'I Wish'. 'Cable Street' sees him join the dots between bouncy, organ-rich early '90s U.S house and the deep space flex of early UK tech-house, while 'Turn Things Around' is an attractive chunk of tactile deep house sunniness tailor-made for sunset sets and mid-afternoon house parties.

Jon Sable - "Infinite Care" - (7:08) 125 BPM
   
Moon - "Handmade" (feat Tamu) - (6:28) 122 BPM
Review: As the title suggests, this multi-artist extravaganza from Wolf Music Recordings brings together fresh tracks from both label regulars and invited guests. Frequent contributor Medlar steps up first, wrapping late-90s garage organ sounds around a deep, sub-heavy bassline and locked-in house drums on 'Bandit', before Manuel Darquart joins the dots between contemporary deep house and turn of the 90s Italian dream house on 'Euphoria'. Jon Sable's 'Infinite Care' is a pleasingly spacey chunk of electro-tinged broken beat smothered in sunrise-ready deep house sonics, while Moon's 'Handmade', featuring Tabu, is a swinging, loose-limbed deep house workout full of soulful vocal snippets, squelchy synth-bass and eyes-closed chords.

Review: Fresh from dropping a pair of fine fusion EPs with Dele Sosimi on Wah Wah 45s, Medlar returns home to Wolf Music Recordings with his most expansive release since 2013 debut album Sleep. In keeping with his musical evolution since then, Aerial is a thrillingly eclectic, colourful and imaginative affair, with Medlar flitting between the Wally Badarou-on-acid vibes of the undeniably cosmic title track; the acid-fired, cowbell-rich strut of 'Iguanadon'; the percussion-rich Dinosaur L mutations of 'Elephant Bingo'; the downtempo jazz-funk of 'Elv'; the late-night, drum machine driven weirdness of 'Cr78-108'; the '89 NYC garage-meets-New Jack Swing flex of 'Phoenix Lights'; and the slow-motion, bass-heavy Balaearica of 'Sin Prisa'. In a word: ace!

Review: If a week is a long time in politics, then a decade is the equivalent of a lifetime in dance music terms. It's for this reason that so many labels are keen to mark their tenth birthday with a special release, just as Wolf Music - one of the UK's most reliable deep house imprints of recent times - has done here. Instead of opting for all new material, the imprint has decided to gather together some of their favourite "Wolf slammers" - cuts that have always done the business on the dancefloor. There's naturally plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, from the loopy R&B/disco/deep house fusion of Fantastic Man's "Look This Way" and the fabulously analogue Chicago retro-futurism of KRL's "Nothing You Can Teach Me", to the sample-heavy, riff-happy bounce of Red Rack'em's "Do Or Die" and the bass-heavy stomp of K98's warehouse-ready revision of Thrilogy's "Heaven".

Paloma - (5:36) 126 BPM
   
Monday Boy - (7:30) 120 BPM
Review: Fittingly, Wolf Music's 50th release comes courtesy of longtime label artist Medlar. There's naturally much to admire throughout, from the jaunty, sub-heavy bounce of opener "Novanta" - where a nagging, one-note synth hook careers around above elastic drums - to the jammed-out vintage synth lines, swirling nu-disco electronics and chunky, non-stop beats of similarly giddy closing cut "Monday Boy". In between, you'll find the deliciously odd and out there percussion workout "Pampas Drums", whose effects are undeniably mind-altering, and the breezy tropical house cheeriness of sun-kissed house stepper "Paloma". In summary: a pleasingly charming affair that ranks as one of Medlar's most loose, effervescent and off-kilter EPs.

Review: Having spent the last 12 months sharpening his disco credentials via a variety of re-edit EPs and sample-heavy "secret weapons", Medlar is back on Wolf doing what he does best. In this case, that means sparse, drum machine driven electro/proto house fusion ("Cascinari"), delay-heavy, stripped-back analogue house blessed with dreamy chords and grime style lo-fi synth-strings ("Nisantasi") and Ruf Dug style dancefloor sweetness seemingly created using forgotten old synthesizers, dusty drum machines and a solitary TB-303 ("Priet"). Excitingly, the EP's final track - a bustling fusion of beatbox electro rhythms, layered breakbeats, heavy bass and yearning chords - is a studio hook-up with similarly well-regarded producer FYI Chris.

Review: Medlar is the first producer to contribute some tried-and-tested secret weapons to the For Discos Only series, a project founded to share the kind of fully licensed, "secret mixes" and "private edits" that were once a huge part of DJ culture. Having previously got busy with the West End discography, this time round Medlar is mining the vast TK Disco catalogue. He begins with the fuzzy dancefloor sleaze of the Timmy Thomas and Queen Samantha-sampling "Shake It", which is accompanied by a gently pulsing, Italo-disco influenced rework by Mytron and Orfofo. Elsewhere, Medlar heads for spaced-out electrofunk pastures on the intergalactic, bass-heavy shuffle of "Tonight", before joining the dots between Jimmy 'Bo' Horne, King Sporty, dub disco and proto-house on the EP standout "Imaginary Dub".

Review: It's been two years since the release of Medlar's excellent debut album, Sleep. He's been relatively quiet since - an EP of 12" versions of album tracks and a collaboration with Dan Shake on Delusions of Grandeur notwithstanding - so this all-new four-tracker for Wolf Music is a timely release. Predictably, it's rather good, with Medlar moving further towards the jazzier end of the deep house spectrum in a similar vein to recent releases on Rhythm Section International. Highlights are plentiful, from the extended, beatless build up and twinkling pianos of "Dawn Chorus", and the Mood Hut style, ambient-influenced new age house revivalism of "Paradise", to the military drums and analogue electronics of "Loon". Best of all, though, is the sticky, humid, off-kilter jazz wig-out "Angel Race".

Walk (Soulphiction remix) - (6:22) 120 BPM
   
I On You - (6:12) 118 BPM
Review: Delusions Of Grandeur have been relatively quiet on the release front this year, but they're back with a bang thanks to this latest collaborative effort from Dan Shake and Medlar. The former has gotten a name thanks to being the first non-Detroiter on Moodymann's Mahogani Music, while the latter has been pushing his disco-friendly take on house music largely via the Wolf Music imprint. They got two cuts on here, the first one being a boogie-leaning, hazy summer club jam in the form of "Walk", and the second one a jazzier affair with plenty of soulful vocals and tribal drums called "I On You". Philpot bossman Soulphiction takes care of transforming "Walk" into a pot of filter-licking madness, where the percussion is stretched and freaked out further out into the ether compared to the original. What a package!

Review: Medlar, who also produces as Klic, drops his first solo EP for London imprint Wolf Recordings. Lush chords and woozy rhodes partner up with "uh-huh" vocal snippets and tribal percussion in "The Sun". James Brown "uh's" and basic synth progressions make up "Knockard Pearl", which receives a stellar Detroit Swindle remix of bolstered stabs that verge on rave. "Govern" lowers the BPM for a shuffled groove, maintaining the lo-fi brilliance of the rest of the EP. A secret weapon for the transitional DJ.
