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: Jaymo & Andy George have etched out an impressive 15 year career, with demand for their 'texture heavy' releases on many big labels seeing their success grow to a global scale. Here they present a mix on their own Moda Black imprint, and just shy of an hour it's a concise snapshot of them doing what they do best: delivering deep, engrossing, synth-rich grooves. Highlights include the brooding, doom-jack of "Ghost" by Zeke Africa, the beguiling synth cascades of "Ratasta" by Upercent and Javier OrduA+a, and all 11 minutes of Dubfire's remarkable, blissed-out techno-disco rework.
Review: This latest bumper-packed compilation from the mighty CR2 label is pretty much all you'll need to get yout through this summer season, if not the whole year! Yep the classic imprint has done it again, rounding up Todd Terry, label boss Mark Brown and the CR2 Allstars to each deliver sizzling summery mixes with a combined tracklist of 57 tunes! A selection of the many highlights includes the melancholy Italo disco vibes of "Epiphany (Copy Paste Soul mix)" by The Golden Boy, the nasty low-down jacker "Starfucker" by Audion, the techno lazer funk jam "Funky Tees(Tee's Freeze mix)" by Todd Terry himself and and the moody trance of Superpitcher's DJ Hell rework, "Je Regrette Everything".
Review: One of the most consistent producers in electronic music, and a man who refuses to be pigeon holed or tied to any one genre, Sander Van Doorn releases his much anticipated follow-up album to 'Supernaturalistic', entitled 'Eleve11'. Having received critical acclaim and major player DJ support across countless tracks. This collection is a coming of age, ranging from backroom beats with Sidney Sampson, and Laidback Luke, simplistic yet destructive power on 'Koko' and 'Drink To Get Drunk'. And our two favourites 'Slap My Pitch Up' and one of his finest moments alongside Adrian Lux 'Eagles'... This weeks essential!
