Review: Deep dream business from Parisian brAque as he returns to D.Ko with three more delights and a dope refix. "Mouvance" is a sassy, breezy chugger with hazy wafts of horns and vocals keeping the hypnosis factor strong. "Briscard" keeps it slinky, trippy and heavily filtered with a clever sample lick buried beneath the slaps and tickles. "Luciano", meanwhile, whips up a funk storm with stuttering beats, slippery guitars, short sharp human elements and a gradual blast of euphoria that cuts through mid-way. If that's not enough, kindred spirit Mudabons ups the tempo and adds a splash of cosmicity to "Mouvance". Sublime.

Review: Having previously popped up on the first compilation release from Paris label D.KO, Flabaire now gets a whole release over which to impart some flamboyant housey goodness. "Local Control" is a sassy number rich with Moog-esque synths intoning a decidedly funky message, while "I Think You Do" has a more thoughtful temperament that lets delicate piano keys meet with the steady ticking drums and warm bass. "Chartreuse" gets the twitchy funk back in place for all kinds of micro-shuffling goodness, and then "L'Orphee" opens the EP up in a final bow led by illustrious synth strings and a bouncy low end both emotive and eminently groovy in the same instance.

Review: Following up his breakthrough EP titled Early Reflections which came out on D.KO in late 2014, young French artist Flabbaire is back with a full length titled It's Just A Silly Phase I'm Going Through, but we hope it's not because we think he's doing an absolutely grand job. Soulful, dusty and emotive Midwest U.S. style of deep house that calls to mind classic Sound Signature or 7 Days Entertainment type stuff. Starting off in truly impressive fashion with some bittersweet, ghost in the machines type journeys like on "Sweet Spot" or "Headspace" there's also some stoned cosmic/balerica kind of stuff too like on "La Greve Des Etoiles" or "Bruxelles" but it's the classic Windy City vibes of "Berggasse 19 (Spiritual mix)" and "Album 5" which are really on the money if you ask us.

Review: D.KO regular Ralph "Flabaire" Maurani returns to the label with his sophomore album. Given the quality of his 2016 debut, It's Just a Silly Phase I'm Going Through, hopes are naturally high for this follow-up. Happily, Bandwith is superb, with Maurani working his way through a range of dusty deep house and blazed, MPC style beat cuts while retaining an attractive rhythmic looseness and dreamy melodiousness throughout. Check, for example, the gentle acid lines, bustling beats and glistening electronic melodies of "Life & Times", the slowly unfurling early morning bliss of ambient techno cut "The Royal Scam", the woozy, Rhodes-laden techno bounce of "AM/PM" and the surprise space-jungle shimmer of "A Storm in Heaven".

Review: Sexy Parisian deep house: what more can we say? D.KO are the right crew for the job, as we'll explain. Local lad Flabaire has appeared previously on Serie Limitee and Organic Music. "Biblife" is sombre and soulful deep house reminiscent of the emotive style of legends like Pepe Braddock or Schmoove. Paso Music head honcho: Paso, also appears here with the deep and sultry groove of "I Never" which is perfect for the early evening or afterhours alike. Petr Serkin gives the track a pretty decent remix treatment too, retaining the deep funky groove but with some help from some dreamy pads and cowbells which work a treat. Ma Rey's "Quartier Sex" is definitely the fiercest offering on here; tough and thumping peak time house reminiscent of Phil Weeks.

Review: D.KO's tidy new EP is a multi-artist affair, featuring two tracks apiece from Russian producer Neotnas - last seen getting Slow & Steady on Soundtravels back in 2014 - and Lagaffe Tales member Jonbjorn Finnbogason. The latter handles the virtual A-side, first fusing samples from BB&Q Band's electro-era soul classic "Dreamer" with gentle acid lines and subtle deep house textures on "Hrwgo", before unfurling the breakbeat-driven, bass-heavy acid house/deep house fusion of "Seagate". As for Neotnas, he doffs a cap to the foundations of liquid funk - think very early LTJ Bukem and Blu Mar Ten releases - on the dreamy "Ocean Gliding", before fusing the low-end swing of two-step garage with the eyes-closed bliss of proper deep house via tasty closer "Something Will Never Happen".

Review: Hailing from Paris (where else?) Mad Rey is a producer who must be permanently in the mood for love - making the most sultry and raunchy deep house going. Every release on his D.KO label has been frisky as hell, and now we get a whole nine tracks of his saucy joints to cavort with. Highlights include the hazy bootycall beats of opener "Bounce", the haunting disco-noir temptress "Minnestoa Fats" and the smooth late 80s sax-tasy house of "Balabushka". An impressive long player if ever there was one!

Review: Fresh from their grinder and ready to roll, D.KO regulars Mad Rey and Mezigue present some "Spliff Shit". It's Mad Rey who handles side A, first serving up a rolling chunk of fliter-heavy, sample-driven deep house rich in loopy orchestral strings and head-nodding disco instrumentation ("L'anguille (Dodson beat)"), before diving deep into crystal clear seas on the wonderfully evocative and hazy "Afterwork". Mezigue, meanwhile, raises a few eyebrows - in a positive sense, of course - with the skittish 148 BPM beats, analogue Motor City bass and classic deep house chords of "House Mezique L'Homme Du Temps", before wrapping acid lines and loved-up electronics around a no-holds-barred techno rhythm on EP highlight "New DWN With It Version 1.2".

Review: Having impressed with a couple of on-point singles last year, D.KO Records founder Mezigue deivers his debut album. As you'd probably expect, it's an entertaining and subtly eclectic affair, with the French producer giddily flitting between loose, jazz-funk influenced house jams, sweaty ghetto-house (see "Accunes Nouvelles D'Alexis"), electrofunk-fuelled "braindance" business, jazzy techno, boogie-tinged deep house, acid-fired Aphex Twin style madness and drowsy, organ-rich electro. It's an arresting and largely off-kilter affair, but one loaded with neat musical touches. For example, barely a track passes without Meringue tweaking an acid bassline or laying down a kaleidoscopic, boogie style synthesizer solo.

Review: Secret Value Orchestra's "Porta", the track chosen to promote the band's debut album, Unidentified Flying Object, tickled our fancy when it dropped earlier in the year. Happily, we can confirm that the finished set is rather good, too. They have taken a widescreen approach, delivering tracks that combine warm and melodious elements associated with both deep house and disco (rubbery electric bass, Rhodes keys, slick boogie synths, and so on) with a variety of rhythmic approaches. So, while a hazy and quietly soulful fusion of house and disco is their stock-in-trade, they also find space to include a fizzing D&B roller ("The Dog"), a dash of jazz-funk ("Superdriver") and some head-nodding hip-hop soul ("Get Enough").

Played by: FLAVIO CONCEICAO
Review: Not too often you'll hear a breakbeat on a deep house record these days but that's what underpins the excellent, dreamy 'Coast Line Thoughts' here, along with an M1 line you just wanna dive into and swim around in. If that's not working for you then Flabaire supplies a 4/4 remix, while the EP's completed by 'Pad Odyssey' - not convinced we really need to explain that one! - and, of course, 'Mind Motion' itself, another dreamy, late-night affair that, like the opener, refuses to be constricted by the 4/4 beat. Taking the EP as a whole, it's a quality deep house selection that's not afraid to take a few risks - what's not to like?
