Review: A true (and somewhat rare) success story of the, producer-ran-record-label within a large empire, is John O'Callaghans Subcultre (via Armada). Over the past few years JOC's hands on approach has kept a perfect balance between new, and established talent with just the right amount from his own studio. This March collection is prime example, featuring; Ost & Meyer, Gareth Emery, KhoMha, Super8 & Tab, plus the Jorn Van Deyhnhoven remix of 'The Real You' from Dark Matters, and the banging Heatbeat cut of Parker & Hanson - 'Afterthought'. 16 full length tracks for just L7.49!!

Review: Anyone that went out to Amsterdam for the annual ADE industry mash up will no doubt have been bombarded with some seriously fresh tunage.. And even if you didn't make it our friends at enhanced have pulled together an ultra special collection of killers from the Dam.. Including: The Madison, D-Mad, Matt Lange, Mike Danis, and countless others. Over 30 tracks starting at just L8.99 it will keep your sets fresh for months to come.
Review: Leading on from early releases on Ajunabeats, Dutch duo 16 Bit Lolitas have since moved across to the equally colossal home country Armada camp, both for management and their own label Bits & Pieces. This collection of 10 full length tracks, Is the perfect introduction to the label and their unique progressive sound made famous by tracks like 'Nobody Seems To Care'. Although all on offer here is wicked, it's 'Goodbye Voodoo', 'Bless You' featuring The Funky Bastard, and 'Baby You', which all jump out to us.. Get stuck in this little lot.
Review: ARMIN AND ABOVE & BEYOND SUPPORT! Although not their first appearance on Will Holland's flagship label (collaborating with Dan Stone on 'Supercell') this is their first solo outing.. And what a debut it is. 'Safari' has been one of the biggest peak-time tracks for the global elite for the past few weeks, largely down to the incessantly catchy lead hook and lush array of wonderfully layered melodies. A warm and evolving bassline runs alongside crisp percussion and flickering vocal chops, meaning there is never a let up in the energy and euphoria. A great start to the year and their Enhanced journey for this promising duo.
Review: You know what your getting with Will Hollands' Enhanced label, with the trademark red sleeve acting as a massive stamp of approval, and on this killer collaboration between Ost & Meyer and 7 Skies they have gained instant Armin, and A&B approval too. Which is no surprise as this is a seriously fresh and effortlessly flowing track, keeping interest throughout, from the electro tinged bass and electric lines to the snappy percussion and choppy vox. The lead that kicks in at the break will send the atmosphere next level.. Infectiously feel good music!
