Review: Compilation mixer Mar-T, Ramon Tapia and a host of others deliver a fair share of toolish, tribal house on Amnesia Ibiza Electronica - but that's only part of the story. The compilation also features the deranged, woozy horn sound of Betook's "Rusty Trombone"; the aggro, abrasive house of Danny Daz's "Ghetto Fab" and the excellent, shuffling 808 drums and resonating bass of Audiofly's "No Props". Techno is also catered for, with Antonio del Prete dropping a spine-tingling big room groove and Kabale Und Liebe & Lauhaus dropping a stripped back take on Alexis Carbrera's "Wherever", while the rumbling bass and detached vocals of DJ T's edit of Tensnake's "Around The House" sounds like an alternative summer anthem.

Review: Hannover's Peppermint Jam predicts that 2018 will be a good year for house music - and what better to support this than with the third outing of the mighty Jam Files series. The label's very own Mousse T. starts the journey with a fresh exclusive, featuring the inimitable Peven Everett on the sensual jam "Pleasure" and even a remix of his anthem "Horny" from '96 by Scott Diaz. Elsewhere, there's also a rework of the classic "Never Enough" by Hamburg legend Boris Dlugosch, plus future classics by newbies like Studioheist on their deep and soulful "In Control" featuring the smooth as silk vocals of Andre Espeut. Also, Raw Instinct get their hot track "De La Bass" reworked by Montreal hero Fred Everything. Jam Files III is the perfect offering for every house music fan or 'music connoisseur' according to the label - we'd have to agree!
