Review: In recent times, Krystal Klear's EPs have wholeheartedly paid tribute to a variety of (mostly New York-based) historic clubs, artists and dance music sub-genres. While he's officially broken the spell with The Division EP - his first outing on Running Back - for the most part it's still a heart-warming, retro-futurist treat. He kicks things off with the cheery, Italo-disco revivalism of "Neutron Dance", where throbbing synthesizer arpeggio lines and mid-80s melodies are underpinned by a bustling mid-tempo house groove, before slowing things down via the Balearic synth-pop shuffle of "Division Ave". Then you'll find more muscular, freestyle-meets-acid house fun (wild and mind-altering peak-time highlight "Shockzoid") as well as the baggy, glassy-eyed Balearic house rush of closer "Moonshake Mike".

Review: You'd expect a compilation curated by open-minded DJ/producer Hunee to be eclectic in nature, and Hunchin' All Night is just that and more. Marketed simply as "a collection of his favourite dancefloor cuts from the '70s until modern time", the compilation set is packed with obscure and inspired jams in a variety of styles. Compare, for example, the gentle but tribal rhythms and new age synthesizers of Carlos Maria and Nuno Canavarro's "Blue Terra" with the glistening, mid-80s Balearic jazz-funk brilliance of Stanislas Tohon's "Owhaaou" (as re-edited by French digger Raphael Top-Secret), or even the Clavinet-heavy Highlife brilliance of Pat Thomas's "Yesu San Bra Disco Hi Life". And that's before we get to the acid-flecked techno madness of Villa Abo and Hunee's wonderfully dreamy and dubbed-out pulse of Mappa Mundi's "Trance Fusion".

Review: Legendary British producer Simon Mills is back on Birmingham/Ibiza based Secret Life under his own name this time. He's been a staple of the imprint in recent years, under his nu-disco alias Napoleon with several releases including one of our all time favourites - the Moogie Wonderland EP a few years back. As part of the acclaimed duo Bent with Neil 'Nail' Tolliday, they released a couple of genre defining albums including the LP Programmed To Love, released at the turn of the millenium. On Harmonic Jigsaws Vol. 1, the scene veteran serves up a fine collection of neon-lit, boogie down grooves for the late night. From the bittersweet and melancholic deepness of "THIFOL" featuring close collaborator Joel Hood, the cute candy funk of "Scorchio!" (which features a touch of sweet flamenco) or the sweet sunkissed balearica of "Rainbow Groove" - this is one of the finest albums we've heard all year.

Review: Those who've been to Croatia's Love International festival - the successor to the now legendary Garden Festival in Tisno - will confirm that their Balearic-minded, beachside "sunrise sessions" are particularly magical. It seems to be these that inspired the first release on the festival's new offshoot label, which comes from sunrise session stalwart Begin (AKA veteran DJ/producer James Holroyd). Like Holroyd's previous Begin releases, the four tracks showcased here are wonderfully warm, glassy-eyed and loved-up. We're particularly enjoying the languid alien synths, jazzy guitars and rubbery bass of "Wood Trees" and the gentle, Bossa-infused shuffle of "Day Pulse", though the dub-wise Balearic house bliss of "Garden (Interlude)" and lounge style jauntiness of "Into The Fun" are also both superb. Basically, it's fantastic from start to finish.

Review: Tel-Aviv's Fortuna Records are doing their nation proud by releasing an impressive volume of native music, both old and new, that is sounding perfectly relevant in this day and age. More than anything, it's just great music that most of us haven't heard yet. For instance, their previous effort - a timely reissue of Tsvia Abarbanel's Eastern Soul - was an invaluable snapshot of Israeli femininity across the ages, while this reincarnation of Shimson Miel's acid-rock output from 2007 is a clear nod to the man's visionary style, more than a decade ago. "Amsterdam Experience" is the stand-out track, a bundle of loose, percussive waves that verge on the electronic while still sounding organic and improvisational. Much the same, "Nueiba Nueiba" is a delightful slice of deep-minded exotica, and Kalbata's edit of "Amsterdam Experience" provides a more wholesome slew of beats to the original.

Review: After that insightful debut via the Tom Tom Disco outfit, Acid Hamam comes through with a barrel-load of expectations which he proceeds to fulfil in fine style. This new EP launches his own, self-titled imprint, and there's no better way to open a scene than with the gentle, percussive waves of "Hypnozahara", which evolves into even murkier landscapes on the supremely dubwise "Psychedelic Cumbia". "Ode O" changes the pace, taking those organic beats into house mode, which are then expertly remixed by Victor Norman. "Dream Of Abbi" finishes this majestic opening release with dreamy, chanting sways of tribalism. What an absolute tip we have here!

Review: Denmark's Music For Dreams continues to provide fine, off-kilter deep house by the truckload, and this new single from Drumpoet Community's Willie Graff and Darren Eboli is a lovely flash of sun-kissed dance music to bring the summer months in. "Love Flight" is an aptly dreamy wash of gentle house beats, while "First Light" expands further out into the ether. "Second Sun" brings in a lush, warm bass that gets the groove on the funky side, leaving "Moon Tan" to bubble gently in a pool of tropical percussion jingles that could easily be left on repeat. Nice stuff from both label and artists!

Review: Sex Judas, who carries the infamous name of Tore "Jazztobakk" Gjedrem, is perfectly suited to the Optimo Music aesthetic. Both visually and acoustically, the producer's vast pool of sonics mean that he is never sticking to one formula or sound, and that is surely bang on the way Optimo like to approach music. Go Down Judas is his debut LP, and while we've dubbed it as 'balearic', this is very much a complete work that spans many different genres and thoughts. There are sparse, beatless moments as well as more fast-paced, bass-driven dance numbers, but the man's vision remains constant throughout. In fact, we'd say it is the perfect balance of noise and symphony, all wrapped up in a post-modern club vibe that will undoubtedly strike more than a few chords...

Review: After much ado, it is finally time for the second offering by Vermont aka Danilo Plessow aka Motor City Drum Ensemble and Marcus Worgull of Innvervisions who delve into all things exotic and balearic on this sublime 12 track journey where they take a break from their more club oriented music respectively. Mostly a beatless affair, these tracks are full of shimmering vintage synths, gentle arpeggios and even more traditional instruments like bass and slide guitar that make a perfect accompaniment for drifting or road trips alike. Features the recent, gorgeous single "Nordeney" alongside a brilliant collection of many other sublime cosmic/psychedelic/ambient cuts.

Review: Hamburg's Stefan Kozalla aka DJ Koze returns in 2018 with his new opus entitled Knock Knock on his Pampa imprint - which exists outside of trend and influence. An unholy mixture of techno with disco, soul, hip hop and psychedelia - there are even wafts of easy listening and indie rock. Special guests include Bon Iver, Speech from Arrested Development, Kurt Wagner of Lambchop, Pampa's very own Sophia Kennedy and the fine vocal talents of Jose Gonzalez. The first single taken from the album is "Illumination" which features the inimitable Roisin Murphy from Moloko. A lo-slung, deep and soulful journey featuring subtle filtered disco house elements and it's very stylish indeed.

Review: Those who dig around Bandcamp for inspiration may have come across Islandman, a Turkish producer and multi-instrumentalist dedicated to jaunty Balearic fusions of summery styles and sounds. Rest In Space marks his first release for an established label - Kenneth Bager's fine Music For Dreams imprint - and offers the perfect introduction to his seductive sonic world. The ten instrumental cuts included are colourful and attractive, with the Istanbul native wrapping jazzy guitar solos, whistling synthesizer melodies and Persian melodies around a variety of gentle, sun-soaked grooves. There are occasional nods towards drowsy new age ambience, dub and Pat Metheny style jazz-funk fusion, but for the most part it's a sparkling and humid affair.

Review: Chasing The Dream is the first artist album on Tale of Us' label and it's an impressive affair. The work of Ukrainian duo Woo York, it stays true to Afterlife's love of melodic electronic music. This is audible on the gentle break beats and warm synth hooks of "More Than a Feeling" and the title track or the windswept "Inception". That said, there is also a darker side to Dream; it first rears its head on the pulsating acid of "Burning With You" before the pair veer into the throbbing, epic "Energy Pulse" and drop tough kicks and the purring bass menace of "Kadastre". However, they really impress on the record's more melodic moments, and the soft-burning hooks of "Rise" shows that Woo York and Afterlife are masters of the art of the melodic.

Review: When it comes to picking remixers, the Omena crew is on the money. Certainly, we can't think of a stronger selection of left-of-centre deep house producers than the crew they've assembled to remix tracks from Seb Wildblood's album The One With The Emoticon. It's arguably Telephones who steals the show via an 11-minute revision of "Wet Plants" that's high on dreamy melodic touches, eyes-closed electronics, warm bass and heavy, densely layered percussion, though Kornel Kovacs' deeper, dustier and more left-of-centre house rub of "Wet Summer" is equally as potent when it comes to club rotations. Horizontal, head-in-the-clouds thrills come via the Yu Su and D.K remixes, with the latter's blissful and drifting take on "Interlude" sounding like a long-lost, 1980s new age ambient treat. In a word: essential.

Review: BeachFreaks Records co-founder Charles Bals is a man who knows about records - and obscure European ones at that. Club Meduse, his first compilation for Spacetalk (a label with a track record for producing these kinds of killer, crate-digging comps), is loosely designed as the soundtrack to life around a mythical (IE imaginary) Cote D'Azure resort. Musically, it gathers together the kind of hazy, soft-focus and life-affirming cuts that you would have heard at resort discos in the mid-to-late 1980s. Suffice to say that Bals' selections tend towards the rare, magical and undeniably Balearic, from the glassy-eyed, cascading jazz-funk of the Keyboys and loved-up post-boogie sweetness of Gemini's "Take a Chance", to the sparkling Euro-electro of Miss' "Hip Hop" and pitched-down drum machine chug of Gigi Flag's "Nymphomaniac (Instrumental)". Essential.

Review: Much like the Fabric mix series, Late Night Tales has been a staple of the British compilation dynasty, and the label has somehow managed to consistently call upon some of the world's biggest and most interesting talents to demonstrate their skills behind the DJ decks, and to give us a tiny view into their tastes and influences. Iceland's Olafur Arnalds, a lo-fi artist who has steadily released nothing but quality on the Erased Tapes label, is asked to do the honours for the catalogu's 44th instelment, and we are seriously digging what this dude is into. Electronica is a bit of a cop-out term to describe this gear, but there is just so much diversity in here that it's simply impossible to categorise it under one roof. Maybe sci-fi electro soul would be a good term, as it manages to capture the mood and feel of these beautiful songs by the likes of Koreless, Jamie XX via Four Tet, Samaris, Arnois, and Arnalds' own music. Spot on once again, Late Night Tales!

Finally "Terminal E" will fly you first class to wherever your head needs to be. Stunning, as always.

Review: It's here! Stockholm's Richard Rossa aka Tom Tom Disco presents eight tracks of deadly, hot, cosmic grooves that are equal parts deep and psychedelic but above all: spiritual! Some of his beloved label's top signings strut their stuff on This Is Tom Tom Disco Vol 05. Some deep and cosmic nu-disco courtesy of Sano on "El Sano", some Middle Eastern exotica on the esoteric "Hazhid Asara" by Acid Hamam and some proper Italo vibes by Tony Disco on "Disco Solar" - one of the compilation's standout moments. Rest assured that label head honcho Richard Rossa represents here too (and is on point as always) with the dusty, boogie down antics of "Discow Ztrummer" which will surely have you gettin' down!

Review: The latest EP on Sol Selectas sees deep house sort Hraach join forces with fellow Ready Mix contributor Armen Miran, whose recent Lost Found EP was an altogether more Balearic excursion. Given the common ground between the duo, it's unsurprising to find that "Inevitable Ending" is a drowsy and atmospheric deep house affair, with twinkling, xylophone style instrumentation and Middle Eastern melodies riding a smooth house groove. On "Aldebarran", the pair ratchets up the atmosphere a notch or two, with Miran contributing the melancholic piano flourishes that perfectly compliment Hraach's chunky deep house groove. The EP closes with something of an epic; a 14-minute remix of "Inevitable Ending" from Viken Arman and Goldcap that offers a chugging, psychedelic taste of the exotic.

Review: reasures From The Temple was designed as a companion piece to Thievery Corporation's 2017 album The Temple of I & I, a set famously recorded at Geejam Studios in Port Antonio, Jamaica. It contains a mixture of previously unheard material originally slated for inclusion on its predecessor and all new remixes of album tracks. As you'd expect, the mood is dub-wise, soulful and humid throughout, with skanking dub cuts and soulful reggae jams nestling side by side with more up-tempo dancefloor workouts (see the dubby deep house beauty of "Guidance" and the breakbeat-driven bustle of "Music To Make You Stagger"). Most of the finest reworks come from TC, whose revisions mostly join the dots between digital dub and "Sleng Teng" style ragged riddims.

We now get treated to two brilliant remixes: "Una Tarde Calurosa" gets a rework by the Clandestino affiliated Coyote, taking it into very hazy, psyched-put balearica territory, while Danish nu-disco hero Rune Lindbaek takes "Lillestrom" deeper into ethereal ambient house territory that's perfect for the chill-out rooms at today's raves.

Review: This is Amsterdam scene stalwart Tom Trago's fourth album, coming five years after The Light Fantastic. Trago set up a new studio at his family home, in the coastal town of Bergen in the northern Netherlands. The album was made with the purpose of creating a global sound, along with the music that has influenced him throughout his life in a new yet natural environment. That is evident throughout the album, because it's a rather diverse affair which demonstrates his expertise in the studio and the impressive variety in his repertoire. From the chill, blunted urban ode of "Bergen", the classic Detroit electro influence of "Zeeweg" or "Morph" to moments of sultry, late night deepness on the emotive "Faith Belongs To Us" or the (hi-tech) soulful closer "Working Machines" - this sees Trago at the absolute top of his game.

Review: Kyodai are back on Exploited for their sixth outing on the Berlin based imprint. Comprised of Javier & Luis Garayalde Oses, the duo look to world music influences on the deep exotic journey of "Iyes" featuring some awe-inspiring polyrhythms. Those gorgeously hypnotic drums return on the dreamy and ethereal "Melancolia" up next, while things finish off in a more jagged fashion with the bass heavy "Agwe" featuring some truly disorienting time signature. The Oses, presumably brothers, had a great career thus far with releases on top labels such as Mule Musiq, Local Talk and Freerange.

Review: More sleazy, mid-tempo and laid-back percussive styles courtesy of The Mushrooms Project - it's what they're becoming known for really. They are back on London's Leng with a sound that immediately resonated with rising stars and newly signed label mates Earthboogie. "Dubby Bolas"is actually from the Italian duo's 2016 LP Rivea Corymbosa. It really excited Earthboogie - who turned it into cosmic/balearic tinged ambient house journey. Equally, the Mushrooms were fans of the Afro disco sound that the Londoners displayed on their debut track "Route Ten To Interzone" which they have now respectfully reworked featuring a little bit more dancefloor dynamic.

Review: Happy new year! Timewarp crack open a fizzy bottle of 2018 with this immaculate, party-pickling compendium. Their first Freestyle 4 Funk album in 18 months, it makes up for lost time with a full-house selection of warm, funk textures; the vibrant afrofunk feels of Vito Lalinga's "Move Your Body In Africa", the pant-swinging breaks and heroic horns of Sampleheadz' "Moving On", the smoky blues and psychedelic bubbles of Leon's "Body & Soul", the springy jazz mischief of JazzProfilacktika's "Samboppa", Mister T & Lucy Lune's bush-shaking fusion on "Retro Respect", the list of fresh soul-warm funk goes on and on. The perfect way to kick off a new year, Timewarp smash it once again.

Review: Robin Lee takes a break from his day job as Faze Action to slip into the occasional Rudy's Midnight Machine alias for this outing on his own label. It's a mellow, atmospheric ride into pastures you wouldn't normally associate with Faze Action, although "Midnight Safari" is smooth and luxurious enough to feel right in any context. "In The Air" has a mysterious air to it, helped in no small part by the evocative Eastern lilt of the strings running through the centre of the track. There's a sassy boogie step powering "Reach Backless," while "Windchimes" flips the script with a semi-ambient live bass reverie. It's back to the party one last time with "Solar Plex" though - this record is about synthy funk first and foremost.
