Review: 1990s sitcom fan turned lo-fi deep house royalty DJ Seinfeld is the latest selector to contribute to K7's long-running DJ Kicks series. This digital download edition naturally contains his mix - a hugely entertaining musical voyage rich in dreamy chords, bustling breakbeats, groovy deep house workouts, skewed techno and post-IDM curiosities - as well as all 21 tracks in unmixed, full-length, DJ-friendly form. Highlights are plentiful and include the downtempo bliss of the producer's own "I See You", the bass-heavy breakbeat/deep house fusion of Rudolf C's "Deep C Survivor", the quirky electronics and low-slung grooves of Falty DL's "Freak Acid" and the loved-up wonder that is Project Pablo's "Who's It For?"
Review: Sack your secretary, abandon your assistant, defenestrate your diary: the only P.A you need right now is this guy. Hailing from the Birmingham Badlands with a long track record of gully on Muzik Hertz, Dread and Radius, it's a welcome return to Hazard's stable with another near-album level slew. Ranging from the dark Ray Keith-style roll-out "Fall Down" to the skippy details of the crispy drums on "In The Middle" to the deeper, Enei-style mechanical growls, ghostly vocals and drum damage of "What We Know", P.A's range manages to be both broad and sharp: whatever D&B subgenre you love the most, we guarantee there'll be tracks on this EP for you. One of his best EPs to date.
Review: After almost a year's break from releasing, the mysterious P.A returns with a monolithic six-tracker on Hazard's Radius: and no track is a fluffer. Ranging from the epic jump-up thunder of "Fuck Da Bullshit" to the silky subs and gossamer vocal rolls of "Lead The Way", P.A's breadth and ability is showcased to full spectrum effect. Deeper again our innards are rearranged by the paranoid grit of "Strength" while "Ya Don't Fool Me" (that comes complete with some cheeky Back To The Future samples if we're not mistaken) makes the perfect DJ tool as a leaps from lean and clean to utter filth with 1.21 gigawatts of power. One in a googolplex.
