Review: There must be something in the water near Juju & Jordash's studio, because they have never made a bad or even average record. Sis-boom-bah! is their fourth studio album and serves to reinforce how consistent they are. Irrespective of whether they are laying down noodle jazz workouts like the wonderful "Herkie" or off centre house grooves - check the vocal sampling, funk bass of "Rah Rah" - the pair's jams are delivered with effortless brilliance. There are dance floor tracks of sorts included here as well, particularly the lean groove of "Back Tuck Basket Toss" and the dubbed out drums of "Deadman", but like all their best work, this album's strength lies in its sprawling, freeform approach to electronic music.

Review: Fans of the likes of Yellow Magic Orchestra will find much to enjoy on this five-track downtempo/leftfield EP from Dutch duo Lamellen - there's something distinctly 'Forbidden Colours'-like about the delicate synths that lead the ambient-not-ambient 'Horse Massage', for starters. 'Spider' leans more towards angular, new wave-y Italo-disco, 'Oyster' is an experimental slo-mo/Balearic oddity with little fluttery sounds that seem to mimic birdsong or animal noises, 'Railrunner' comes on like early 80s synth-funk via Music From Ceefax, while closer 'Pippo Denemarken' has a quirky, circus-like feel and features a lovely nagging, lolloping Hammond riff.

Than Sadet - (3:38) 87 BPM
Review: Makam doesn't let up! The Dutch hero re-appears on homebase Dekmantel where he's surely become a stalwart of the label and their sound. On "Riding High" he gives us a melodic deep house journey full of emotion and equal parts mystery over its glorious five minutes that you'll wish never stopped. Ge serves up something much more atmospheric on the grainy ambience of "Them Sadet", a collage of trippy exotic samples over emotive elements makes this one definitely to remember also.

Review: The film What A World celebrates the continuing partnership between Dekmantel and fashion label Patta, by telling a story about contrasting worlds that come together in a dream-like atmosphere. The visuals are underscored by a slowly building musical piece from the hands of Rimer London. The Dutch producer and DJ behind projects such as Bas Bron and Le Le returns under his original production alias for this Dekmantel debut - with a set of chromatic disco tracks, progressive in texture and full of character. From the glistening synthscapes of "Quantum Internet Alliance", the late night slo-mo disco of "The Blob, Imaginary Trip To A Desolate New York" or the emotive classic house of "Do Easy" awash in celestial FM synthesis aesthetics.

Review: This is Amsterdam scene stalwart Tom Trago's fourth album, coming five years after The Light Fantastic. Trago set up a new studio at his family home, in the coastal town of Bergen in the northern Netherlands. The album was made with the purpose of creating a global sound, along with the music that has influenced him throughout his life in a new yet natural environment. That is evident throughout the album, because it's a rather diverse affair which demonstrates his expertise in the studio and the impressive variety in his repertoire. From the chill, blunted urban ode of "Bergen", the classic Detroit electro influence of "Zeeweg" or "Morph" to moments of sultry, late night deepness on the emotive "Faith Belongs To Us" or the (hi-tech) soulful closer "Working Machines" - this sees Trago at the absolute top of his game.

Review: Cyclicality Between Procyon & Gomeisa is a lofty title by anyone's standards, but firmly in-keeping with the psychedelic influences behind Vakula's distinctive brand of inspired electronic wizardry. It's fair to say that the lauded Ukranian is on fine form on this third studio full-length, serving up 14 trippy tracks that variously fuse heady ambience, dub techno, new age deep house, electronic jazz, dubbed-out blues and, perhaps most surprisingly, cosmic disco (see the excellent "Intergalactic Funk"). As usual, Vakula's production skills and unique vision shine through, giving the album a coherent feel despite his impressive, genre-bending antics.
