Cataflex EP
Tongue Kiss - (6:00) 126 BPM
Nimrod - (6:06) 126 BPM Hot
Cataflex - (5:41) 135 BPM
Review: Some all-action collaborative gear from Amsterdam, as sometime WOLF MUSIC contributor and Bobby Donny founder Frits Wentink joins forces with fellow Dutch house scene stalwart Malin Genie (real name Nick Putman). The duo first serves up 'Tongue Kiss', a rolling, lightly French Touch-influenced slab of heady house nostalgia in which filtered riffs and swirly noises cluster around a chunky, hip-swinging groove, before they opt for a deep, heady and hypnotic vibe on the eyes-closed early morning flex of 'Nimrod'. To round things off, they serve up title track 'Cataflex', a surging, acid-flecked excursion that draws some influence from mind-mangling and ghetto-house jack tracks. Tough as teak and mind-altering to the max, it's the EP's standout moment.

Review: Almost 12 months on from his first appearance on Frits Wentink's Bobby Donny label, Dirt Crew regular Felix Leifur returns to sell subscriptions to "The Tarleton Appreciation Club". Given the quality of the title track - a looped, spacey, skewed and ultra-deep take on loose-limbed jazz-house - he should have quite a lot of takers. There's plenty to get excited about across the rest of the EP, too, from the more driving and low-slung fuzziness of "Parts" and the sub-bass-propelled glitch-house swing of "Robbi", to the Theo Parrish-meets-J Dilla flex of fabulous closer "Juledreng", which could well be the standout of another high quality Leifur release.

Wasted Years Of Pumping Iron
Oli Coony - (6:29) 127 BPM
Derek Antony - (6:09) 125 BPM
Chad Brothers - (5:48) 127 BPM Hot
Played by: Kastle
Review: Boss of Amsterdam's Bobby Donny imprint Frits Wentink teams up with man of the moment: London based Aussie DJ Boring (he of "Winona Ryder" fame) for a bunch of classic house perspectives by two heroes of the nu-skool. The skittering, swing-fuelled rhythms of early '90s garage seem to be a consistent element on Wasted Years Of Pumping Iron. From the dark, hip-house flavoured bounce of "Oli Coony" or "Derek Antony", through to the trippy deepness of "Chad Brothers" with its woozy keys and Todd Edwards style rhythms pumping away beneath all that lo-fi tape saturation.

Untitled One - (5:56) 115 BPM
Untitled Two - (5:53) 115 BPM
Untitled Three - (5:11) 120 BPM Hot
Untitled Four - (3:16) 117 BPM
Review: Amsterdam's Bobby Donny is a label by Steve Mensink and home to local wunderkind Frits Wentink amongst others. They now present Californian producer Tlim Shug (E-Beamz/Echovolt) with some lush, lo-fi house shenanigans. From the emotive, slo-mo deepness of "Untitled One" with its Terekke influence and VHS aesthetic throughout, then the second untitled cut - a dusty, MPC style jam reminiscent of that Berlin sound popularised by Max Graef or Glenn Astro. you can feel the vibe of "Untitled Three" with its hypnotic polyrhythms that will put you in a trance.

Park End
Park End - (3:11) 128 BPM Hot
Park End (Cassius Select remix) - (3:52) 99 BPM
Park End (Frits Wentink remix) - (3:56) 124 BPM
Review: Low End Activist touches down on Frists Wentink's ever-impressive Bobby Donny imprint with a very special guest; Roll Deep alumni Trim. Flexing his smoky, spacious sermon with clarity over loose-limbed two-steps and wobbled-out sub, it's the ideal jam to take us strutting into the bleak winter. Remix-wise Cassius Select murk up the mix with time-defying warpedness while Frits shows us the light at the end of the tunnel with an remix that's coded with subtle flurries of hope. All corners covered.

Unidentified Blues - (5:46) 122 BPM
Hampton - (6:31) 119 BPM
Contact - (4:55) 118 BPM
Universall Rim - (7:53) 119 BPM Hot
Review: Bobby Donny is run by Dutch dusty deepness merchant Frits Wentink. So right from when we heard the first beat on the track "Unidentified Blues" it all figured, really. Introducing Felix Leifur: a Reykjavik based producer with other fine releases of late on Lagaffe Tales, Neovinyl and Dirt Crew. The smoky and soulful vibes continue on the broken beat groove of "Hampton" and things are equally blunted (and rooted in urban blues) on the lush jam "Contact" taking its cues from greats like Moodymann as much as it does from the Money $ex crew. "Universal Rim" gives that MPC one more bash to churn out yet more swingin', summery, hip-hop inspired house that you can roll one up and get bopping to.

Moonlight Boys Choir (Frits Wentink remix) - (6:29) 120 BPM Hot
Review: Earlier in 2017, Bristol based sample manipulator turned lo-fi deep house sort Scissorwork set a few tongues wagging with an intriguing debut 12". Here the cheeky scamp follows it up with an EP for Bobby Donny that's arguably even better. His versatility is on display from the start, when the bass-heavy, sample-house dustiness of the Ross From Friends-ish "Homewrecker" is immediately followed by "Radiator", a wonderfully wonky, MPC style workout that sits somewhere between skewed bass music and Flying Lotus. "Midnight Boys Choir", a wonderfully deep and crackly chunk of lo-fi house bliss, is probably the pick of the bunch, though some DJs may prefer Frits Wentik's chunkier, dub-tinged remix of the same track.

Mutuality EP

Wig Split - (6:11) 120 BPM
Mutuality - (6:30) 120 BPM
Overcaste Tune - (5:30) 120 BPM
Played by: Nachtbraker
Review: Since debuting on Echovolt a couple of years back, Tlim Shug has earned a reputation for making the kind of drowsy, off-kilter, analogue-rich, straight-to-tape deep house that's all the rage right now. This first appearance on Bobby Donny is full of the stuff; opener "Rari Techno", for example, sounds like it was recorded at six in the morning after 30 minutes sleep, such is its hallucinogenic dreaminess and pleasingly skewed rhythm track. The similarly hushed and rhythmically loose "Mutuality" has a definite Ross From Friends feel about it (the producer, not the uptight sitcom character), while the brilliant "Overstate" tune is so deep you probably need a mineshaft and a lift to access it.

Man At Parade - (5:52) 120 BPM Hot
Bouquet At Rest - (6:38) 120 BPM
Review: Earlier this year, Wolf Music regular Frits Wentink had the honour of delivering the first release on pal Steve Mensink's Bobby Donny label. Here, he provides a swift follow-up, serving up for left-of-centre workouts. He begins with "Horses In Cornfield", a delightfully skewed fusion of crazy electronics, wobbly sub and bumpin' electronics, before showcasing the more downtempo side of his work on the experimental, analogue beat science of "Girls In Matching Bathing Suits". Flip for the rolling, swinging beats and fuzzy melodies of "Man At Parade", and the cracked, distorted, bluesy late night deep house of "Bouquet At Rest".

Distinguishing Bias - (5:52) 124 BPM Hot
Impartial Perspective (Frits Wentink remix) - (7:30) 120 BPM
Review: Amsterdam' imprint run by Frits Wentiks serves up some more deep and dusty hardware only jams this time courtesy of San2. The title track is a haunting and melancholic affair reminiscent of early Theo Parrish and is just sublime, check this out. "Distinguishing Bias" is more upbeat and funky by comparision with its buzzing bassline and sing fuelled rhythms. The Frits Wentiks of is a slice of tough low tech soul with subtle dub techno influences which retains the dark undertones of the original but reworks it well.

Live Fast, Dwayne Young
Dwayne Young - (6:30) 124 BPM Hot
Rio - (1:21) 101 BPM
Guacamole - (6:12) 124 BPM
Q&A - (7:14) 120 BPM
Aquarelle - (8:00) 120 BPM
Review: In his quest to master the art of 'wonky' house, Dutch dweller Frits Wentink has set up the Bobby Donny label, and it's a rule-free home for his 'hardware jams on the Rhodes, Juno 60s or a MPC'. "Dwayne Young" kicks things off with a distorted soul sample held down by some raw, slammin' house for a truly warped dancefloor jam. Elsewhere "Rio" is a swirly interlude, "Guacamole" is a sparse 4/4 workout, "Q&A" is an extra terrestrial lo-fi garage joint and "Aquarelle" sounds like an easy listening record plunging to the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
