Review: Wake up and smell the bake up, Walsh's Biscuit Factory have cooked a fresh batch from three relative newcomers and the results are highly scrumptious; Nottingham three-piece kick off with abyss plunged bass tones and more space that Professor Brian Cox's daydreams, Rufus!'s "Slug Crawl" lives up to its name perfectly with molten rhythmic elements and stacks of tightly coiled funk in the groove while Reaction closes the show on a mystic introspective tip. Grub's up!

Review: Australian outfit Rufus have taken the Modular/Presets model and made it all little bit more EDM-friendly. It's a method that's largely paid off, and here "Say A Prayer For Me", one of their hits from album Bloom, gets some even dancier remakes. MK is up first, delivering some beguilingly smooth electro-house, before looking to vintage Nightcrawlers for some retro dance-pop on his excellent dub. Alex Metric serves up some electric acid-disco for his standout mix, whilst Mazda goes the full Coldplay, which you will totally love if waving lighters in stadiums is your thing.
Review: Sydney based pop trio are taking the world by storm at present and here's a new single taken from their forthcoming album in 2016. The original of "Like An Animal" is an infectious slice of pop inflected house from the Sweat It Out! Camp that we've all become accustomed to by now and it gets the remix treatment here. Melbourne's Dom Dolla steps us first with his take; a dark, late night tech house re-take, with a dirty Hot Creations style bassline. It's Isaac Tichauer though who delivers a rather compelling version; his dreamy and blissful take is the kind of thing you'd imagine Lee Burridge playing at a rooftop party somewhere in L.A. Finally Swiss trio Trinidad deliver an epic Innervisions style remix that will truly knock your socks off!
Review: The word 'vimana' comes from the ancient term for mythical flying machine. Fitting: this is one deep space dub workout that should have your floor flying to all manner of uncharted territories. Anchored by the sturdy, steady bass croak, "Vimana" is home to an alluring spread of rises, whooshes and eerie reverberated FX. At first it doesn't feel like you're flying anywhere... then the repetitive kicks come in from nowhere mid-track and the explorations truly begin. "Vimana" - it'll give you wings!
