Review: It's not so much a case of Acid Mondays but happy, Summery Mondays on the original version of Svenkins. Over a drummy, rolling backing, deep chords and shimmering keys make for an effortlessly upbeat deep house affair, with not a hint of menace audible. Chicago's DJ Sneak maintains a similar mood on his "BBQ Beats" version. The longer evenings and warmer temperatures ensure that this disco-infused, deep chord groover is the perfect accompaniment to al fresco dining and dancing. Finally, the dub version is tailor made for DJs, with its tribal beats, rolling rhythm and strategically placed 'ah hey' vocal samples.

Review: Why wait to till the weekend when you can have Acid on a Monday? It's certainly true upon hearing these two bangers. First up "Blazelnuts" features a pounding kick drum and tripped-out warped vocals, but it's the more sensual grind of deep, hypnotic grinder "Interstellar Cake" that really has us ascending to planet boogie.

Review: Well, we all know by now that Circus Recordings was set up by the legendary Yousef and named after his world-renowned club event Circus, in his hometown of Liverpool. The in-house label has been doing the business for a while now, presenting us future British heroes in the form of Lewis Boardman, Krankbrother and Ki Creighton in recent times. It's now over to their newest recruits on Selector pt 5 where young gun Bontan gets straight into it with the funky and sexy tech house of "C'est Moi" which is reminiscent of classic Greg Fenton or D'julz. Next up, Lee Walker presents "2am At Medicine Bar" which does exactly what it says on the tin; taking you to a sweaty dancefloor in the legendary Middleborough club. Adrenalised tech house aimed squarely at the last night once again from Napoli's DJ Dep on "Hot Vibe", while Glasgow's finest Illyus & Barrientos give us the hands in the air anthem "Galvanized" complete with diva vocals, cowbells and euphoric house organs galore.

Review: Yousef's Circus Recordings welcomes the pulsing majesty of "Time For House Music", the Carl Cox masterpiece du jour. Pumping out bass and continuing the hedonistic Ibiza vibes late into the night, there's no doubt that right now, there's not a hotter tune to be closing your Balearic beach party down to. With a minimal remix from Davide Squallace that takes it down to another level of squalid glamour and debauchery and a hard-edged re-suturing from David Glass, there's more than enough here to recreate the perfect night.

Review: Newcastle Upon Tyne's Christoph is back after some killer releases on the likes of Warung, Truesoul and Knee Deep In sound: who released his brilliant Closer LP last year. Now for Liverpool's finest Circus Recordings is The Skedaddle EP where he delivers some bouncy and slinky tech house that's just as dark and suspense filled as you like on "Cozen" (original mix). The title track is a brooding tribal workout that rolls deep and is perfect moodlighting for Ibiza dancefloors during the morning shift. Finally "Boundless" is the most mellow and evocative affair: this sublime progressive house workout with some seductive vocals atop is pure magic.

Review: Liverpool's David Glass finds a fitting home on local imprint Circus, in-house label of the infamous superclub run by resident Yousef. "Gimme Love" is rolling, funky tech house with enough adrenaline and sleaze to burn up dance-floors on The White Isle and London alike this Spring. Moji's vocals by the way are hot! Middlesborough based up and comer Lee Walker steps up to deliver a pretty super progressive house remix. Great Stuff's Mihalis Safras likewise delivers a killer remix, just his version is definitely made for peak time dancefloors at Space and Ushuaia particularly in mind. Finally Italian Pirupa's remix saves the best for last on this tough techno monster no doubt honed by his releases on the likes of Drumcode or Kling Klong.

Review: Following on from his Lost release on Circus, David Glass invites Carpe Diem Collective (CDC) to contribute to his latest outing on Yousef's label. The collective's "Pick Myself Up" is a curious one, a rolling club groove that manages to sound understated and subtle. This is in large part due to the filtered synths and atmospheric break down. Glass' "Everybody's Fly" also shuns going down the obvious route. Shuffling break beats and a warm bass provide the backing for a breathy vocal that implores the listener to 'take me!' Glass has also catered to fans of the label and both the title track and "Es Cana" will appeal to anyone thirsting for tribal beats and filtered builds and drops.

Review: White Drum is proof that some producers are still capable of squeezing new shapes and sounds from minimal house. The title track is based on rolling drums and a shuffling rhythm, while Tom Flynn's trancey hooks set it apart from the slew of hiccupping grooves. "You & Me" is darker and more tripped out, with a surging bassline providing the basis for a repetitive vocal sample that veers its way in and out of the arrangement. "Stunning" has a more slinky, stripped back groove, but that doesn't deter Flynn from deploying discordant riffs, eerie synths and an acidic bass, while "Warm Keys" sees him evoke the spirit of mid-90s deep house as evocative chords build in the backrgound and a soulful vocal sample soars its way through the arrangement.

Tiger Square - (8:14) 125 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Flynn delivers two different but equally compelling interpretations of the tribal house sound on Argentina. The title track adopts the more conventional approach; it is powered by a surging bassline and features an insistent disco filter yet other elements, like the sample of a cheering crowd, mark it out as different to the glut of rolling club tracks. Flynn gets more inventive on "Tiger Square". Loose drums dominate the arrangement, while stuttering vocal samples, jazzy stabs and claps that ignore rigid quantization make it sound compelling. On the evidence of this release, Flynn is pushing an established sound into new directions.

Bigger Than Prince (The Martinez Brothers remix) - (5:23) 125 BPM
from $1.97
Review: It's been some time since Curtis Jones slipped into his Green Velvet nom de plume, but as Prince demonstrates, this comeback has been worth the wait. In its original format, its drums are rickety and sparse, but the bass grinds seductively and the vocal, claiming that an unidentified person is 'bigger than Prince', makes the track sound even more bugged out. Hot Since 82 add some beefed up, rolling drums and pitch the vocals way down, while the Martinez Brothers version is rooted in steely drums, shaking percussion and coated in a layer of grimy acid. Irrespective of whether it will be bigger than Prince, it certainly makes for a compelling comeback.

Review: Second time around for Green Velvet's typically strutting "Bigger Than Prince", which first dropped last year on Yousef's Circus Recordings imprint. Here it gets a new lease of life thanks to a quartet of previously unheard remixes. Jay Lumen provides a dark, throbbing, swinging rework that should find favour with the after-party crew, while Leeds native Darius Syrossian flits between glacial synth motifs, twirling acid and bassline-driven bump on his notable rework. There's a typically bumpin', drum-heavy onslaught from Coyu, while label boss Yousef drops an undulating tech-house remix that's arguably the EP's strongest moment.

Review: Carlisle's Ki Creighton is back on Liverpool institution Circus with The Journey EP, having previously appeared on Under No Illusion, Elrow and New Violence. This is peak time tech house for party animals on offer here, so be prepared. The funky and stomping opener "Acid Rain" gets off to a good start, while "The Journey" lives up to its title on this adrenalised progressive house odyssey with rich melodies and a humming sub bass. Finally "Jam Hot" is tough and rolling energy that will appeal to fans of Gruuv, Saved or Material Series.

Review: Yousef's Circus Recordings isn't perhaps best known for releasing luscious vocal fare, but that's exactly what Yost Koen and vocalist Leroy deliver here. "In A Bad Way" is delightfully soulful, but in that understated way that marks out the best vocal deep house. The grooves are contemporary and fluid, perfectly complimenting Leroy's vocal. Remix-wise, label boss Yousef leads the way with a slightly darker, more heavily percussive version, whilst M-In and Chriss Vogt go for a groovier, bigger feel via the addition of some tasty reverb and hooky pianos. Sweaty bonus cut "Mathematical" is excellent, too, all loose beats, wonky builds and tribal ethos.

Review: Krankbrother: Brothers, DJ's, promoters and if that wasn't enough: promoters and producers out of London. Just modern day supermen really.. and all in a day's work for this mighty duo. This time appearing on Yousef's esteemed Circus Recordings out of Liverpool, "Circular Thing" is a rolling and booming tech house cut that has the right amount of suspense and perfect to lead into the peak time shift with its early Detroit techno style melody. It also gets a bunch of seriously kick -ass remixes, such as by Knee Deep In Sound main man Hot Since '82, whose explosive peak time slammer of a makeover would make even Carlo Lio stand up and notice. German hero Kiki also serves up a version which is more restrained, darker and deeper with its humming sub bassline and overall druggy aesthetic. Dresden duo Raumakustik throw in a rendition which is more percussive and funky, not bad either!

Fellow Liverpudlian David Glass is up next delivering a killer remix that puts more grunt in the bass and more boom in the kick, which you could imagine absolutely firing up a stadium or festival crowd at peak time; just ferocious! Finally "My People" is a dubby power-house jam with epic piano stabs, nice swing and sampled diva vocals all working to perfection.

Review: Maher and Casa provide something different from run of the mill minimal house. "Malgra" starts off with dreamy chords and rasping off-beats before building into a pulsing groove. Emerson Todd's take is a pleasant deep house affair, but on this occasion the best remixes focus on a peak-time approach. Kaiserdisco's version is a big room minimal-style affair, but amid the walls of white noise and dense sheets of percussion there lurks a droning bass that packs more menace than a kennel full of starved Rottweilers. Acid Mondays also deliver a fine jacking interpretation, its rolling drums supporting jarring riffs and firing percussion.

Review: The unstoppable machine from Greece is back with more surefire peak time tech house following up great releases on Great Suff and Saved in recent times. "Mapa" has all the trademarks of Safras' sound: rolling basslines, funky percussion and trippy synth work. "Hybrid" gets a bit deeper with its sexy come hither vocal samples giving way to a fierce, swing fuelled drum groove. "Santuro" gets back to the main room on this roller of a groove that you could imagine Paco Osuna smashing out on Ibiza. Finally "Krisna" saves the bets for last on this hysterical peak time monster that is sure to destroy dance floors this Spring.

Review: Demian Muller teams up with his fellow Chilean producer Andre Butano for this heads-down dance floor release on Yousef's label. The title track sets the tone, with steely, metallic rhythms creating a tracky sound, supported by buzzing bass tones. "Esvivir" is similarly inclined and sees the duo conjure up a dense, rolling groove that slips into dreamy break downs. While David Glass' take on "Nitid Night" is led by heavy drums and tough kicks, there is also a lighter side to this release; in its original form, "Night" is a dubbed out groove full of billowing chords and trance-inspired melodies.

Review: Up and coming tech house mover Louis Proud has already forged links with many key labels on the global circuit, but this release for Yousef's Circus imprint may well be his biggest splash to date. "So Many Promises" in its original form is a crafty cut that matches sleek and snappy rhythms with a fulsome bassline and a healthy dose of soul thanks to the vocal licks. On remix duties, Nathan Barato delivers a tougher tool splashed with a touch of dub, while Maher Daniel heads into minimal territory with his "Out Of The Box Remix". Bontan however delivers the biggest crowd pleaser with the snappy garage bump and gnarly synth action of his version, rounding out a highly playable release.

Review: Few modern house producers have as much experience or kudos as Quell. The German artist as released on esteemed labels like Ibadan, 4 Lux and 20/20 Vision and now brings his musical vision to Yousef's imprint. The title track is reminiscent of 90s deep house, with dense filters and a bubbling, dubby groove underpinning a vocal sample that repeats the refrain 'take forever'. On "Susanne", he ventures into tougher, rougher territory, with a tough rhythm and close-to-abrasive percussion underpinning a vocal sample. Finally, there's "Siamese"; like "Susanne", it focuses on a stripped back approach, with insistent stabs replacing the vocal samples.

Review: It sounds like Yousef's label has a summer hit on its hands. In its original format, "Be High" sees lush disco strings unfold over robust tribal beats and an insistent groove. It's straightforward, but seductive and highly catchy. "Cool People" is based on a similar backing track, but the duo replace musical elements with a ponderous vocal and a rumbling bass, while a similar aesthetic applies on the tribal house and buzzing licks of "Dodasch". Finally, the balance shifts back towards the musical on "In Your Face". While less catchy than the title track, its dreamy techno chords provide a melodic backdrop for the tough tribal beats.

Review: Since dropping his Shunyata album back in 2010, this talented German has concentrated on hammering out essential house tool after house tool on myriad labels. He's never just satisfied with one-dimensional productions though, and the mighty "Samson" is no different: full, rolling drums accelerate under a hypnotic vocal loop and cleverly layered percussion creating a sense of barely contained delirium. Elsewhere we also get a little locomotive techy disco in the form of "Jada Jada", before Harry Romero steps in to add some tribal-swing spice to the title track's original ingredients.
