Review: To celebrate the dawning of a new decade Citizens of Vice has decided to offer up a multi-artist extravaganza featuring contributions from a quintet of rising stars. Jamie Porteus kicks things off with "Johnny Deep", a wonderfully warm-and sun-kissed blend of bubbly electronic grooves, ear-pleasing melodies and subtle dub influences, before Lanowa goes down a deeper route on the warm, hypnotic and bass-heavy house cut "Gorgeous People". Elsewhere, Lovebreak's "Honestly" is a dusty sample-house shuffler, Paper Street Song's "Bobby's Song" is a glassy-eyed rework of an eyes-closed 80s soul jam and We Play Alone's "There's Something Up There" brilliantly joins the dots between drowsy deep house and sub-heavy UL garage.

Review: Earlier in the year We Play Alone debuted on Citizens Of Vice via a contribution to the label's superb "Twenty 20". Here the trio of experienced producers returns with a rather fine first EP. Opener "Love Breaks Down" is dreamy and delicious, with the threesome wrapping tactile chords and mangled vocal samples around a bustling house beat. "Into You" sees them join the dots between Todd Edwards style garage and laidback analogue deep house, while "3-29am"is the kind of wavy, ultra-deep house jam that makes perfect sense at half-three in the morning. Also superb is former Accidental and Mantis Recordings man Brooks's remix of "Into You", which turns the cut into a quirky fusion of booming sub-bass, pin-sharp melodies and constantly intensifying beats.
