End Transmission (dub Variation) - (7:15) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: After a decade showcasing his wares on Bedrock, Stelios Vassiloudis has transferred to Balance Music. There's a lot to like about 'End Transmission', the Athens-based producer's label debut. In the EP-leading 'Single Version' form, the track is a genuine blast of squint-worthy audible sunshine: a slowly building ambient soundscape where shimmering pads and glistening guitars cluster sparse, laidback beats and warming bass that seemingly build in waves. Vassiloudis rebuilds it for the dancefloor on the 'Dub Variation', re-imagining it as a loopy chunk of weighty soundscape tech-house, but it's John Beltran's 'Sweet Sunny Remix' - a sublime, awe-inspiring ambient take tailor-made for spring runrises - that really sparkles. It's genuinely breath-taking.

Review: Back in 2019, Tel-Aviv-based producer Stereo Underground released his debut full album "The Art of Silence" on Balance Music, which showcased his musical journey and perspectives on sound and life. Fast forward to 2021, he's back on the Australian label with his latest offering titled "Spinner", a dirty and sleazy bass house groove that makes for perfect tackle during the warm-up or afterhours alike. This is followed by the euphoric progressive house sound of "Cyberia" that many of the artist's supporters will find to be more familiar of him, with its slinky and hypnotic groove reminiscent of material heard on labels like Lost & Found or Sudbeat.

Review: Swiss veteran and Cadenza co-founder Quenum brings us a tech-house EP that's about as far from the colour-by-numbers, sample-pack variety favoured by sleeve-tattooed Ibiza/Miami "bros" as you can get. 'Briggs Street' starts out with a blues-y vocal lament, then spends the next five minutes building and building but never QUITE resolving. The psychobabble spoken vocal and deep Afro drums of 'Step By Step' could work just about everywhere from soulful house to techno floors just as long as it's 4am, 'Small Brains' leans towards straight-up techno, and finally 'Batman Wake Up' delivers a dose of classic twitchy, glitchy minimalism. Classy stuff.

Review: A Canadian producer slowly starting to make his mark on the progressive scene is Micah Paul Lukasewich. With music so far released on labels like Global Underground, Ruhnsong and now Balance Music, he teams up with vocalist Kiki Cave to deliver two tracks of bona-fide progressive bliss. With super crisp production to boot, Micah Paul Lukasewich goes the whole-hog in "Evening Winds" that takes the track through a sidewinding session of effervescent synths, turned-out crescendos and subtle yet flying arpeggios. Kiki Cave gives it that extra sultry, God-like touch with her breathy vocals and melancholic charm in a single that's got HIT! written all over it.

For their debut release on Australia's Balance, they serve up an atmospheric expression in dancefloor drama on the mesmerising epic "Bwell". With its foreboding bassline contrasted by a rich tapestry of lush melodies, it is just as worthy of a moment in the club as the fine remixes which come as part of the package. London-based Mexican Betoko gets onboard with a sublime rework which accentuates those plucked strings, while Staub himself hammers the message home with his sensual deep house perspective.

With sustained chords and evolving melodies adding to the luster of the title-track, Brian Cid converges on trance, techno and touch of deep house at large, harnessing the percussive effects of solid tom drums inside the spacey groove of "Open Centre" while the slightly menacing dub progressions of "Field Of Play" call upon themes that inspire both hope and melancholy. True trance.

The Eye Candy EP features some wonderfully melodic progessive house action: from the glassy-eyed and bittersweet dancefloor drama of the title track which is reminiscent of German legends like Wighnomy Brothers or Extrawelt, while the slinky and hypnotic bounce of "Portal" is proper headrush inducing material that's perfect listening under the strobe lights.

Review: Sharing associations with labels like Mobilee, Get Physical and Bedrock, LA duo Dance Spirit arrive on Balance Music out of Australia. Delivering the pair's first release for 2020 it sees Dance Spirit reach deep into synth-laden, arpeggiotic, progressive electro territory. WIth the searing strings of "Close To The Sun'' combining with the percussive melodies of its bassline and skittering hi-hats, similar rhythms and deep tones match its aquatic counterpart in "Roses". For something a little harder and dubbed out there's "What A Soul Sounds Like", a minimal-esque power ballad of crackles, fizzles and pop given an ambient remix with its groove and drums totally removed for a science function blast of sound.

From the slinky and hypnotic mood music of "Status Quo", to the pumping euphoria of "Rain Dance" which shows off their penchant for well executed melodic techno, and the lean afterhours bounce of "Repair" - here's a surefire set of summertime grooves for any occasion.

Review: Vassiloudis, who is best known for his work on Bedrock, follows last year's Crossroads EP on Balance with this immersive affair. "Building Better Worlds" is an atmospheric but driving track that resounds to layered textures and chiming melodies. Meanwhile on "Supermodel", he drops the tempo to deliver dubbed out drums and a brooding bass that provides the basis for dreamy synth lines. "Tunnel Vision" sees Vassiloudis focus more on this downtempo approach, as slow-motion beats are fused with shiny melodies and robotic vocals. The Greek producer's journey into the home listening realm continues on "Manual", where cosmic keys and guitar licks are fused with a chugging groove.

Review: Giving hope to words which otherwise evoke the opposite, Mistique Music and Kunai Records founders Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic return with Agony. Trance is the name of the game here, with the lead track's skipping groove weaving through a sonic field of synths, melodic progressions, soft, glass-like percussion and swathes of pads and breathy textures. "Neglected" delivers a more club-concentrated mix that's reduced in texture but big in dub and warehouse bounce. A little more tech house than trancey but all good!

"Mahayl", on the one side, with it 90s, almost Robert Miles-tip, surfs a wave of mellow before breaking down in a massive section of murky bass, only to then return again to the surface. "Meteor", like a rock reentering the atmosphere, burns long and hard into its final synthy descent. Spectacular deep trance.

Review: Since its inception in 2015, Jeremy Olander's label and event series, Vivrant, has become a home to new and established artists such as Khen, Finnebassen, Henry Saiz and more - all presenting their unique take on melodic house and techno. Now it is releasing its first ever mix album for Melbourne's Balance Music - and also happens to be the first in Olander's career thus far. With this long overdue project, he is bringing two discs of exclusive music from himself (under his darker techno alias Dhillon), and friends such as La Fleur, Ejeca, Locked Groove, Marino Canal and Tim Engelhardt, in addition to newcomers like A Friend Of Marcus and Carl Dern. Olander stated that the mix 'encompasses what the label sounds like in 2019 and beyond.. a true manifestation of our style, and what it's grown to become in the four years since we started.'

Review: Melbournians GMJ and Matter AKA Gavin Martin & Matty Doyle have an established place in their legendary progressive house scene. It's fitting then that a release on local institution Balance is offered up here, with the duo forming powers with Queensland native Funkform for some excursions in slinky and entrancing night moves. From the deep tribal meditations of "Emerge" through to the Afro influenced dancefloor drama of "Solace" - we want to hear more from this mighty trio in 2020.

Review: This EP for Balance Music is another winner for the Australian producer Luka Sambe. With recent releases on labels like Lost & Found and Traum Schallplatten, this EP is filled with the sort of gems that should get repeated plays from progressive house heroes like Guy J, Sasha and more. "If Animals Could Talk" will allow you passage deep into the amazon on this breathtaking and deep tribal rain dance. Following this he is sounding rather majestic on the slinky and hypnotic dancefloor drama of "People Can Dance", in addition to ever reliable Israeli producer Eli Nissan's bouncy bass-driven tech house rework - which is aimed squarely at main room dancefloors.

Review: Here is the first single taken from German producer Namito's autobiographical album Leaving Everything Behind, on Aussie label Balance Music, "Covert Affection" (featuring Manaa) signals a coming of age, as the 13 year old adolescent learns he will soon be evacuated, in a bid to escape the raging war in his homeland of Iran - as well as dealing with themes of love and loss. Features the moody and atmospheric Club Mix which will surely hypnotise dancefloors into submission, followed by a blissed-out ambient mix incorporating neo-classical elements.

Review: Progressive house supremo Hernan Cattaneo takes us on a journey to the deep side here, and it's very much the proverbial game of two halves. In the first half, the Argentinian skillfully weaves a path through dreamy midtempo numbers (see Kymatiks' Green Fields & Lemon Skies'), moody, broody synth chuggers (Cattaneo & Soundexile's 'Flair') and full-on ambience (Navar's 'Zion'). For the second half, the dancefloor ante is raised considerably by the likes of Cid Inc's driving Balearic prog jam 'Forgotten' and the chunky, atmospheric 'Mein Sohn' by Subandrio. The deep/prog hinterland has long been Cattaneo's home, and this engaging collection shows why he's one of the scene's most revered selectors.

Three time winner of Israel's DJ of the Year award Sahar Z has worked with everyone from Bedrock to Lost & Found, while Stelios Vassiloudis might just be one of the most well-known exponents of emotive house to come from Greece. His impressive resume of releases takes in such esteemed labels like Poker Flat, Ovum, Audiomatique, and Moodmusic. This is the pair's second session of collaboration, and the Crossroads EP is destined to take you to distant places in your mind. Go deep into the exotic on the hypnotic bliss that is the mesmerising title track, the dark energy of 'heads down' number "Black Tears" will draw you deep into the aether while the heavenly and sublime "Front Row" is a perfectly euphoric cut that's ideal to play before they turn the lights on in the morning.

Their new one comes courtesy of their Melbourne hometown heroes Balance Music - The Entheogen EP features a selection of deep and earthy progressive house sounds, as heard on the glassy eyed and heartfelt groove of the title track. More earthy tones can be experienced on the dark and slinky tech-house groove of "Moody Meen" and the selected remixes next. Retza's sensual rework wouldn't have sounded out of place on Dessous or Hafenmusik, while the ambient mix is pure and simple bliss.

Review: Israeli producer Yariv Etzion aka Stereo Underground has been very active within Tel Aviv's electronic music scene over the last decade. His musical output began 2009, and in his debut year he received high praise for his hypnotic, progressive sounds. Fast forward to the present day, he now presents his full-length debut album The Art Of Silence via esteemed Australian label Balance Music. It is the natural culmination of his efforts over the last decade, taking him 10 months of recording in a studio set up in the countryside. The project has always shown a great sense of musicality and ambition and it is sure evident on tracks like the title track with its slinky melody, subtle rhythms and soothing tones, the euphoric high octane dancefloor drama of "Above The Sea Of Fog" with its powerful trance inflections, or get lost in the moody and atmospheric progressive house epic "Echoes"

Review: Israel born artist Yariv Etzion aka Stereo Underground (FSOE UV/Lost & Found) presents the first single from his upcoming debut album, The Art of Silence. The rather evocative electronica of "Little Red Head" carries a lot of emotional weight, as it was written in memory of the artist's pet cat who passed away recently, and features the ethereal vocals of Tel Aviv's Daniel Sealine. This is followed by the powerful club mix which goes for that Life & Death style of dancefloor drama, followed by a more straight ahead dub mix for those of you not so keen on the vocals.

After presenting the last edition of their acclaimed mix series last year, where a cross two CDs he showcased his unique ear for melody and dancefloor dynamics with over 20 tracks, the Aussie larrikin finally serves up stand out track "Karnival Dreams" with its dubby, old-school tech house flavour. Also included in the package is a remix from fellow Australian Retza (All Day I Dream) and and minimal techno veteran Butane (Alphahouse/Little Helpers).

An acclaimed studio engineer on pop projects in his recent past, he is now driven by a love of club culture and brings a lush and melodic style to the scene - as heard on labels like fabric, Knee Deep In Sound and Get Physical. The Endangered Records head honcho delivers some seriously deep and hypnotic perspectives in tech-house for his full length entitled Meteorite Man: brilliantly exemplified on the slinky mentalist groove of "Quest" or the hypnotic journey down the vortex that is "Limits" awash in a rich tapestry of melody and texture - among many others on this fine release.

Review: Melbourne-based Balance Music, home to the long-running compilation series of the same name, bring us a debut long-player from local talent Uone that's part studio album, part mix comp, and if you're a fan of the label generally you'll find plenty to enjoy. 'Space Between Love', featuring a Stevie Nicks-esque vocal from Briony Taylor-Brooks, is simply stunning - think Ennie Morricone remixed by Solomun and you're somewhere in the ballpark. But there's plenty more goodness where that came from! Operating in the nebulous zone where deep and progressive house overlap, and borrowing rhythms and sounds from around the globe, this album is an engaging, involving listen that's best appreciated when served whole.
