Review: Co-founder of the Polar Noise label, Paul C, is a legend of the scene now for the past 15 years playing clubs the world over and releasing music with Hot Creations, Terminal M and Peppermint Jam, to name a few. He now arrives on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss Hottrax label with two bonafide underground club burners; the bassline-centric and dubby techno attitudes of "Coney Island" alongside a more tribalistic and cruising tech house number that is "Combination". Add a pinch of dirt, some sultry vocals, and you're good to go.
Review: Crisp and stylish, the title track on this long-awaited EP is a bright and brisk take on the current trend for funk and disco-infused Chicago house with darker, seedier undertones. Progressing into funky house, "Bull Revenge" channels retro sounds into a hypnotising, progressive bassline and odd sci-fi vocals. Far more minimal, "Flying Lizard" rounds up the release with big industrial claps and driving bass. Pack this and you'll never have an empty dancefloor. We can almost guarantee it.
Review: Italy's Riva Starr - master of electro - crash lands on Nic Fanciulli's Saved imprint with a bunch of dirty house edits for tool or listening use. Tech house loops and ingenious vocal chops characterise the shape of the EP and Mr. Starr lays his hands on four tracks. The choice cuts being his edit of Luca Morris' s"Play By Play" and Rino Cerrone and Flavio Diaz's "Extraordinary Wiring", two firmly shaped grooves with fiery percussion knots and seductive low-end swells. Effective and utterly deadly on the floor.
