Review: For its sixth release, the always funky DOBRO label has called up Dutchman Jan Janssen. He serves up a trio of gloriously sunny and slow motion house cuts with some top shelf remixes from Lay-Far, Scruscru and Juravlove. 'Architecture Of Happiness' opens in heart melting fashion with shuffling drums and atmospheric vocals next to leggy drums and warming bass. 'Sense Of Wonder' is another jazzy and soulful house cut with skip in the drums. 'Where Have You Gone' ups the pace but is no less loved-up before the remixes add extra funk, club beats and blissed-out deepness.

Review: DOBRO's ongoing Tape series - so-called because it is also released on cassette - has so far proved to be a reliable source of mixed-up material from a wide range of largely unknown and up-and-coming European artists. The third edition of the series is as strong as its predecessors and contains an alluring mixture of dusty, jazz-flecked deep house (Jan Janssen, the sample-rich, low-slung haziness of Sven Wegner), disco-tinged dancefloor workouts (Stogov), filter-heavy peak-time loop jams (Siggatunez), tooled-up re-edits with a twist (Alexny, Jordan Reece, the rubbery, horn-heavy brilliance of 'Romantic Train' by Cosmoconics), head-nodding MPC beats (Deej of Kooley High) and rushing, shirts-off piano house cheeriness (Dan PM, Sascha Chiminiera and Phonk D).

Review: Luca Olivotto, a Berlin-based producer who's previously appeared on labels such as The Basement Discos and Inhale/Exhale, serves up some very fine trad-style house and garage grooves on this EP for DOBRO. 'Only One' itself marries an intricate funk bassline to 90s hands-in-the-air pianos, and comes complete with a tougher, denser Iner Remix, while elsewhere on the EP, 'Good Vibrations' foregrounds pianos redolent of early 90s (US) garage, 'Want You' flirts with disco and boogie flavas and 'Universe' comes on like classic rave given a jazzual makeover. Good stuff all round, but the Original of the title track wins out for yours truly.

West Coast - (5:30) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Love Code - (5:33) 128 BPM
   
Is For You - (7:04) 124 BPM
Review: Three tracks of authentically 70s-sounding disco action here from Spanish producer Alex Gomez, who goes professionally by the name of Addict Disc. 'West Coast' itself gets the ball rolling - "rolling" being very much the operative word as the instrumental groove slinks and shimmies its way to the end. 'Love Code' is a far more uplifting and energetic affair, albeit thankfully without ever straying into the realm of saccharine euphoria. We're then played out by 'Is For You', a fairly pacey lil' shuffler that nudges a little closer to boogie pastures. It's all very playable but the lead cut was chosen well, nuff said!

For its fifth release, it's another various artists affair featuring a whopping six tracks with appearances from I Gemin on the dusty, boompty and off-kilter 'I Like 2 Party', Paul Rudder & OUI go ultra deep in the tradition of the Three Chairs sound on the emotive 'In The Sky For Our Love', while Bendrik serves up the mandatory late night mood music vibes on 'Chat House' and Swales provides the banger on the funky and tough rolling 'Blue Skies'.

Review: After an extended period spent contributing cuts to multi-artist releases, Classonix pop up on Iner's DOBRO label with their first solo EP since 2018. The Russian duo kick things off in fine style via the organic house/jazz-funk fusion of 'Everyday' - all glistening jazz guitar solos and sun-kissed sax motifs - before opting for a low slung, nu-jazz influenced sound on 'Pour Some More of Your Signature Cocktail'. 'The Fabulous East' is a warming, synth-heavy slab of mid-80s proto-Balearica, while 'Caribbean Nights' is a gorgeous, dub-flecked chunk of sunset deep house rich in colourful synth sounds and dreamy pads. Remixer Will Buck does a terrific job in transforming the latter track into a chunkier, peak-time ready piano house bumper. A quietly impressive comeback all told.

Review: Since emerging in the autumn of 2020, DOBRO has yet to put a foot wrong. The Iner-helmed imprint excels in blurring the boundaries between deep house, disco and blunted beats, with many of the featured producers being either confirmed underground heroes, or promising debutants. Triem, the artist behind this EP, falls into the latter category. It's certainly a confident first outing, with highlights including the swirling string loops, trippy filter effects and bustling house beats of 'Quilho Plane', the colourful boogie-house squelch of 'Death Riff', the joyous and summery disco-house bounce of 'Hotel Syfax' and the Soundstream-goes-sample house excellence of 'Chico's Groove'.

Review: Following up releases by DJ Merci, Will Sonic and Sun Rhythms, St. Petersburg-based label Dobro returns with this brilliant EP by Opprefish. After having studied music theory for more than 10 years, practicing saxophone and guitar, the young Parisian decided to produce electronic music which resulted in releases on Rewind Ltd, Fantin Zoo and InFine over the years. The Rhodes Kheys EP features the chilled soul-jazz beats of "CHURN Mitigaschoen", while the title track gets a neon-lit nu-disco makeover by Gome, plus two dusty, late-night deep house excursions in collaboration with DJ Gravlax.

Review: Nurvous [sic], Feedasoul and Sengily Recordings regular DJ Merci is a producer on the rise, as this first outing on Iner's excellent Dobro label proves. Rich in jazz-funk-influenced musicality, warming analogue bass, sparkling piano riffs and meticulously programmed drums, it's a vivid and vibrant affair that lingers long in the memory. Our picks of a very strong bunch are the chunky, stab-happy piano house rush of 'Summer Love', the sun-kissed, synth-laden nu-disco warmth of 'Boogie Down' and the drowsy, gently unfurling deep house brilliance of 'Slow Rising'. Jank provides a fine remix of the latter tune, too, pitching it down to 111 BPM while adding rubbery bass guitar, dreamy pads, twinkling piano motifs and eyes-closed vocal samples.

Review: Following up great releases by Will Sonic, Iner and Sun Rhythms, St. Petersburg-based label Dobro returns with VA 004, compiled by the aforementioned Iner and featuring groovy music from around the globe, or as the label best described themselves 'a lot of sunny house and disco bangers.' Starting off with Sable Blanc's take on the dusty MPC house sound of Berlin with 'Humming Bird On The Spot', followed by KX9000 & Berzingue getting into some Windy City style late night deepness on 'Hasch 3000'. Elsewhere, highlights come from the likes of Meowsn who gives their best KDJ impression on 'Q', and Martem & Maoree's loopy disco inferno 'Walking Down The Street'.

Review: Some fine festive fare here from the fast-rising DOBRO imprint, who've used the season of goodwill as an excuse to deliver another fine, 16-rack compilation of previously unreleased material. Kicking off with the emotive, shuffling deep house loveliness of Buzz Compass's 'Hartbit', the collection gleefully skips between sample-rich disco-house (Mutenoise, Leiba, Hotmood), quirky Latin house (Babak, Kostenko Brothers), squelchy late-80s techno revivalism (SIRS and Lovebirds), nu-boogie (Scruscru with label boss Iner), wall-of-sound deep house positivity (Selva, the jaunty vintage late '80s 'garage-house' vibes of Sun Rhythms) and hazy, sunrise-ready wonder (Kerrinis and TonyZzz). Brilliantly programmed, it's a fine compilation of positive, ear-pleasing excellence.

Review: Iner's Dobro label is fast becoming a must-check source of high-grade "kind music in all forms", as the man himself puts it. There's plenty to enjoy on the imprint's latest outing, which successfully showcases the work of rising star Will Sonic. He begins with two complimentary solo productions: the languid, sub-heavy shuffle of 'Dobrota', where sun-speckled melodic motifs and ear-pleasing electronics ride a breakbeat house groove, and the chopped-up disco-house/jazz-house fusion of peak-time workout 'Party People Dream'. Iner then joins him for two collaborative excursions: the squelchy, swinging deep house haziness of 'Dam Homie' and the sunburst cheeriness of 'Take Over', a whirlwind of chipper synth sounds, jazz-house drums and squelchy electronics.

Review: Iner's impressive Dobro label continues to deliver debuts from talented, up-and-coming artists. The latest comes courtesy of fellow Saint Petersburg native Sun Rhythms, a previously unheralded DJ/producer whose first EP includes sparkling, afternoon-ready re-edits of all manner of tasty cuts. He begins by cannily looping, extending and rearranging a glassy-eyed, boogie-era '80s soul gem (the squelchy bass, slick vocals and squiggly synths of 'Better To Love'), before adding low-end weight to an eccentric, off-kilter Latin disco stomper ('Torro La Fiesta'). 'One Day Happiness' is a lusciously sun-kissed rearrangement of a colourful European deep house gem from the turn of the '90s, while 'Out Away' is a piano and vibraphone-laden dance through dream house pastures. In a word: lovely!

Review: Certain tracks are so effortlessly joyous and life-affirming that dropping them in the club will guarantee smiles all round. Iner's 'Trip of Happiness', the lead cut from the latest EP on his edit-minded Dobro label, is one of those. Powered forwards by colourful keyboard riffs, unfussy drums and waves of attractive electronics, it's a hands-in-the-air affair that seemingly builds from start to finish. Iner's second contribution to the EP, 'White Nights in St Petersburg', is also impressive, with the producer conjuring an acid bass-propelled slab of retro-futurist Afro-house. Saint Paul delivers two equally righteous rubs too: the tactile, early '90s soulful house wonder that is 'A Natural High' and the more bustling funky house flex of 'Joie De Vivre', where chunky house beats combine cleverly with vintage disco-funk instrumentation.

This sequel follows on along similar lines, with Iner choosing to showcase six sizzling tracks from a variety of rising stars and established. Spanish producer Hurlee kicks things off via the atmospheric and musically detailed deep house jazziness of 'Pel Meu Per Tu', before Igor Gonya wraps jazzy old soul snippets around a bustling beat on 'Mess In The Head'. Sun-kissed, electric piano-laden carnival house flavours are the order of the day on Cosmocomics' 'Surf and Smoothie', while MuteNoise and Jeff The Fool both make merry with samples lifted from classic disco-funk jams. Will Sonic successfully rounds things off with a classic-sounding deep house pumper with bags of energy ('Musica Melodica').

Review: Belarus' Iner launches a new label with a strong cast of international names all pushing a deep and distinguished strain of house music for those who want soul and invention in equal measure. Tilman is up first with 'Sweet Dreamer', a mellow, looped up roller. Sune's 'Flutes' takes a breezier approach shaped out by fluttering jazz funk motifs. Yann Polewka celebrates the sweetest Philly strings and some classic vocal licks for a disco-infused burner you can't help but love. Iner himself keeps things loose and organic on the wonderful 'Respectfull Kind Music', while Scruscru goes for a sleek approach to chopped up funky house. That leaves it to Buzz Compass to get heady and hazy with the bass-leaning cuts coursing through 'That Nighter'.
