Review: Since arriving on the house scene about three years ago, Daley Padley aka HS82, has soared to some dizzying heights. Having already released a mix album with Pete Tong this year, he's now back with a solo one, 2015: The Review. Its full of fresh, upbeat house productions, some of our faves include Montel's disorientating "I Cant Remember", Sindey Charles and Sante's acid-pop stomper "Blade" and the retro 80s chaos of vintage jacker "Libertine" by Steve Lawler.
Review: Sante drops his second studio album on AVOTRE. This collaborative project features remixes and guest features from the house scene's biggest acts and it's all rather impressive. Starting out with the tough and dusty warehouse shuffle of "Octave" (Ninetoes remix), Denney's remix of "Never Enough" gets a taste for the acid life where he works that silver Roland box like a you know what!His teaming up with the imitable queen of Detroit Ann Saunderson on "Promises" showed us some jacking and hi-octane techno-soul too. Elsewhere, there's his remix of the legendary Marshall Jefferson anthem "I Believe" and a track with the Stereo MC's entitled 'I Need'. wAFF (Hot Creations) joins the line up of world leading talent with "Interferenze" before the LP is brought to a brilliant close with a remix from long-time friend Sidney Charles called 'Sick Drummer', not to mention Sante's interpretation of Roland Clark's "What The F**K" to boot!
Review: Phillip Meier aka Sante is back. The rising star from Southern Germany presents us with "909 Basement" for the Knee Deep In Sound powerhouse. The title track lives up to its name, with the drum machine's stomp and hiss driving the track for the most part and perfect for sub level shut ins that go 'til late. "Text Message" is more the kind of funky party starting tech house you'd expect from the label: tight rhythm, sharp bassline and trippy synth melodies and works a treat. Finally "Endless" is more of a tough and bass driven DJ tool for the peak time that will elevate adrenaline levels as good as a Gruuv or Saved track anyway.
