Review: Chicago producer K Alexi Shelby's 1991 release gets the remix treatment for modern dance floors. Exos drops a stab-heavy pounder, its primal rhythm littered with vocal samples. Techno veteran Mark Broom pushes in a different direction, and his take is all about high-pitched acid lines set to a dense, drummy groove. Alex Bau's version is somewhat reminiscent of Robert Armani's timeless version of Hardfloor's Mahogani Roots, with alarm bells ringing over firing percussion and a jacking rhythm. Kid Mistik delivers the finale and the most intense version, with slamming concrete slab beats complementing a grungy acid line and raging percussion.

Review: New York City's finest, the man, the legend: Harry Romero. The don returns for Ibiza's Do Not Sleep and "Soul Is Another" is a dirty, drugged out epic with a swinging garage rhythm, wonky electro house bassline and fuzzy vocal loops repeating the title's very refrain: absolute madness. There's some wicked remixes too, with Hector Couto up first. The Spaniard throws down a tough and rolling peak time thriller. Be sure to catch this groove, after the killer drop of course! Italian minimal house hero Leon steps up to the challenge next and does not disappoint. His rendition gets on a stripped, druggy, after-hours vibe instead.
