Review: Shockingly, it's been over two years since we last heard from Drumpoet Community semi-regular All is Well, a "veteran producer" who the label claims has: "contributed timeless dance tracks for over 20 years". Whoever the mystery man is, there's plenty to set the pulse racing on the LaSalle EP, from the sparkling, deep synth-pop-goes-house bliss of the immaculate - and deliciously analogue-rich - 'Godin', and the deep space shimmer of 'Boards of Verdun', where piano notes echo across an immersive sound space, to the beat-free ambient rush of 'Isolation'. Arguably best of all though is 'LaSalle', a driving, arpeggio-driven, Morse Code-sporting peak-time beast that comes accompanied by a killer, drum-heavy 'Rhythm Track' DJ tool.

Review: Swiss musician and producer Kevin Wettstein has recorded under a number of aliases over the years, most notably Delakeyz and Melodiesinfonie. Heyschia369 is a new pseudomym, with this expansive EP delivering both Wettstein's debut under the moniker and hos first appearance on Drumpoet Community. There's much to enjoy throughout, from the bubbly deep house/deep electro fusion of superb opener "Only Love", and the retro-futurist new age house prettiness of "Positive", to the low-slung, bass-heavy electro sleaze of "Twirkbreak" and the vintage Chicago deep house influences of both "505 Face" and "Follow For Follow". An assured, well-produced and impressively ear-catching debut all told.

Review: 13 years after he first appeared on the label, Drumpoet Community regular Yannick Salvo has finally got round to recording his first album as Quarion. So was it worth waiting for? We'd say so. While there are some rather wonderful excursions into ambient territory (see the softly spun, slow-motion bliss of opener "Turquoise ('99 Till Inifity)" and the opaque, underwater wooziness of "Ultramarine") for the most part Salvo uses the album to showcase the subtle variety inherent within his largely melodic and evocative dancefloor-friendly work. For proof, contrast the Orbital style excursion "Carulean", the out-there dub techno pulse of "Teal", the bleeping, early morning techno heaviness of "Cobalt (Plains)" and the bubbly electronics and dreamy pads of enveloping tech-house treat "Indigo (Aries)".

Review: German deep house heroes Frankey & Sandrino released their much lauded hit "Ways Of The Sun" back in 2015 which featured the gorgeous vocals of one la Oeberg. On this series of new remixes, the ethereal and spellbinding sonic qualities of the original are reworked by some current darlings of the Swiss scene: Jimi Jules' low-slung rendition is perfect for sunkissed Sunday open-air parties, while Drumpoet label staple Manuel Fischer's one takes on classic Chicago house qualities of the first wave. Peter Kruder should need no introduction should he: the Viennese legend's glassy-eyed and life-affirming rework undoubtedly being the highlight of the bunch.

Review: It's been two years since Raphael Ripperton last released anything under the alternative Headless Ghost alias, a fact that may go a little way to explaining the undeniably epic nature of this six-track EP. Locked-in peak-time fun is provided by the heady late night hypnotism of "Abandon", while "One Day OK, One Day Not" sees Ripperton join the dots between the smooth deep house nd Maurice Fulton's madcap Syclops productions. His love of lo-fi analogue machines also comes to the fore on "Real Smile Fades" - a sunrise-friendly tribute to classic old deep house - and "See You Never", whose dusty chords and mind-altering electronics seemingly drift above a clicking, mind-altering groove.

Review: An eclectic EP that draws on deep house, ambient and electronica for inspiration. 'One One Twelve Sixteen' is an atmospheric cut that'd work well at the start of longer sets, 'Jarry' is deep house given an 80s disco makeover, 'Is It? Version 1' has an almost Orb-ish feel, 'Is It? Version 2' veers towards prog and sports some fine analogue synth squelch, 'Sajkvfighosgo' is a bleepy, trippy excursion with a late 80s/early90s feel (just hope no one asks you what it's called) and then finally 'Inertia' is an out-and-out ambient piece. Together, the five tracks evidence an open-minded, rule-free approach to making music that's well in keeping with the Drumpoet Community spirit.

Jamaican Morse Code - (5:20) 121 BPM
Review: Swiss imprint Drumpoet Community return with one of their nations favourite sons. Yanneck Salvo aka Quarion (alongside homeboy Agnes and German associates Session Victim) helped usher in a refreshing new wave of deep house a decade ago, just as the mid noughties sounds of minimal were becoming passe. Here the Retreat label boss goes back to his roots - he served up one of Drumpoet's first released back in 2006 - and gives us some more sublime/ timeless deep house on the Cobblestone EP. His trademark melodic style featuring shimmering synth sequences and sublime atmosphere is on display with the title track, while the sexy late night deepness of "Sunday Night" (Part 2) is equally impressive. Afro rhythms in a low-slung groove, beneath some brooding elements comprise an unusual mixture that works quite wonderfully on "Jamaican Morse Code".

Review: The always reliable Drumpoet Community return with a Swiss army knife (of sorts) for deep house music, in the form of Drum Union Vol 1. The Akjoya Circles label boss Look Like appears first, first fresh off appearances on the likes of Mistress with the neon-lit, tropical balearicisms of "Full Moon Rhythm", Manuel Fischer returns to the label after last year's great Iris EP with the boogie-down acid antics of "Galactic Manhunt" and Wah-Chu-Ku delivers what is probably the EP's standout moment on the deeply emotive futurism of "Humble Beginnings". An honourable mention deserved to Mitsubishi Galaxy also, whose contribution "Metadroen" keeps the rest of the release on a techy and moody trip.

Review: Irish deep house hero John Daly returns on Swiss imprint Drumpoet Community, with the same quality you'd expect from him as always here. He's had a good rapport with the label for nearly 10 years. The Feel Music boss follows up two volumes of deep hip-hop as West 2 West on Galway imprint All City with some classic sounds inspired by the early '90s Stateside sounds here. From the thumping and emotive techno-soul of "I Keep On Wanting You" (Good Idea mix) to the rather Larry Heard indebted "Progress" (Push Through mix) with its bouncy Juno bassline, hypnotic synth textures and evocative strings.

Review: Having made their mark in the Afro-house scene as part of the Basel-based Alma Negra collective, Dario Rohrbach and Dersu Figueria have decided to try their hand at musically expansive deep house. Given their production experience, it's little surprise to find that this debut EP for Drumpoet Community is really rather good. There's much to admire throughout, from the soul-soaked, gospel-tinged jazz house of "River" and hypnotic dreaminess of "Giesterlied", to the starburst electronics, soulful vocal samples and hazy shuffle of superb opener "Sparkle". "All The Love To You", a jazz-funk influenced chunk of deep house/disco fusion, and the gospel-inspired "Honey" are also pretty darn tasty, too.

Review: Previously, Drumpoet Community has provided a platform for emerging artists like John Daly and Sascha Dive - can it now do the same for Manuel Fischer? Having debuted on Oskar Offerman's label in 2015, he brings a left of centre approach to bear on Iris. "Forellus" boasts broken down drums, harpsichord and an acid bass, while "Motel Paradiso" sees Fischer provide a straighter iteration of this sound. On the title track, he again showcases his love of mixing 303s and musical elements over a jerky rhythm, while "Luxury Girl" is the smoothest, most conventional deep house groove on offer here. One thing is for certain; like Dive and Daly before him, we'll be hearing a lot more of Manuel Fischer.

Review: We've lost count of the number of high quality house labels that Fred Everything has featured on over the course of his long career. The Winter Tones EP marks his first appearance on Switzerland's Drumpoet Community. "Winter Tones" blends his usual dreamy pads and eyes-wide chords with metronomic drums and numerous acid-flecked flourishes. The latter elements come to the fore on the deliciously stripped-back and heavy "Winter Dubs", while the gorgeous "Winter Outro" sounds like an ambient version of "Pacific State" after one too many sleeping pills. Tuff City Kids deliver two fine reworks; a sharp, stomping, acid-inspired "303 Mix", and the trippy, low-slung, bass-heavy throb that is the "Toneulator Mix".

Review: Mysterious "three-person collective" Jack Pattern enjoyed a stellar debut year in 2015, releasing a trio of sought-after 12" singles. Here the Swiss threesome pops up on Zurich imprint Drumpoet Community, delivering another selection of must-check tracks. Typically, it's an intriguingly diverse affair, with the Zurich-based crew variously treating us to Balearic stoner disco (the luscious "Melting Oceans"), '90s intelligent techno fused with post-punk sleaze ("Only One Moment"), and a pair of melodious deep house outings. Of these, it's the pleasingly dubbed-out and eccentric "Ponteloco" that really tickles our fancy, though the deeper and more picturesque "Freeride of Love" is also rather good.

Review: Before dropping releases on Nite Grooves, Izu and Deep Down Slam, Gianni 'Washerman' Siravo was a regular contributor to Drumpoet Community. The Awakening marks his return to Alex Dallas and Ron Shiller's imprint after three years away. There's plenty of playable fodder on show, from the techno-influenced, acid-and-organs stomp of "Traction", to the early trance influences, Italian style dreaminess and throbbing rhythm of "Still Life". "Aurrora", too, is decidedly Balearic in tone, despite its' deep house construction, while "The Awakening" follows a darker, more European path. While its' cymbals scream "Detroit techno", its jaunty synth stabs and undulating electronics recall vintage Frank De Wulf productions from the turn of the '90s.

Review: Berlin's Frankey & Sandrino are back on Swiss label Drumpoet Community again after a great release on Innervisions last year. "Ways Of The Sun" features the gorgeous vocals of la Aberg backed by a seriously deep and atmospheric groove. It fits into the current status quo of dark journey tracks, that's a given: but doesn't get too gloomy on you! There's also "Formax" a cut of highly engineered tech house that's more similar to the work they did for Dixon's label last year. With epic synths, elevating pads and all round futurist groove that will mark a great transition in any serious DJ's set.

The loose, synth-heavy "Dapra", for example, boasts the intoxicating, synth-heavy madness of Maurice Fulton's Syclops project, but couples it with the booming, strobelight intensity of warehouse-friendly acid house. As for "Float", it's a paragon of picturesque beauty, with synthesized steel drum melodies cascading over a jaunty deep house groove.

Review: The latest release on Swiss label Drumpoet Community has the potential to become a huge summer anthem. In particular, the Washerman remix of the title track sees a buzzing bass and bubbling riffs underpin Jinadu's tortured vocals. Close your eyes and it could easily pass for a remix of Depeche Mode by an artist like Oliver Huntemann. The Musk version of "Starchild" is more in keeping with the label's house sound and features doubled up claps and hissing percussion fused with sensuous piano lines. The Hyenah version of the same track remains in a similar territory, albeit with tighter and denser drums supporting the piano lines.

Review: Germany's Franck Beckers and Sandrino Tittel are steadily making a name for themselves after releasing EPs on Innervisions, Moodmusic and now Drumpoet Community. The duo have been around for a while but it's this latest collaboration which has seen them rise to the top of the house game, and it's their starry, deep and sensual take on club music which renders their tracks so singular. "Starchild" contains enough sonic oddity to be heard outside the club, and its instantly seductive bassline locks well with the rest of the airy, abstract atmospherics circling around it. "Lost" is a little more club-ready but nonetheless spaced out, and the duo's vocals are a sublime final touch to the twisted, glitchy arrangement of the tune. Stunners!

Review: In just four releases Brame has managed to land himself solo releases on Morris Audio, Dirt Crew and Drumpoet Community, which speaks volumes for the quality of his deep house wares. It's the latter that he returns to for round two, finding fresh form with the sublime and soothing tones of "Vinyl Cut" and the edgier thrust of "Absent". The standout track on the EP is the title jam, which takes a more progressive route as swirling melodies weave a mystical message around the heads down drum lines, leaving plenty of room for delectable techy stabs to inject some mechanised soul into the tune in its later stages.

Review: 10 years after his final release for the once acclaimed nu-jazz imprint Straight Ahead, Domenico Ferrari is back with an all new alias: High Heels Breaker. Here, one of the highlights from his recently released eponymous debut album - the woozy downtempo R&B pulse of "Come Easy" - gets a deserved single release, alongside a slew of fresh remixes. Dave Aju steps up first, delivering a dark, jazz-flecked deep house interpretation, before David August takes the track further into stargazing deep house territory (think twinkling electronics, delicate keys and late night warmth). There's a strangely organic, loose-sounding house rework from Kalabrese, plus a fine pair of dub-infused, ultra-deep, after-party friendly takes from rising star Jimi Jules.

He's in fine form, too, laying down a quartet of tracks that run the full gamut of floor-focused, late night deep house. There's a clear UK garage influence to lead cut "Sunday Night", whose attractive combination of wonky attack electronics and bold pianos make it sound like a classic US house take on the Paul Woolford classic "Erotic Discourse". "Falling Down" is deep, sparse and bright, all picturesque electronics, woozy chords and classic vocal samples. There's some excellent fuzzy 303-funk in the shape of "Mr Smith Does Acid", while "Searching" is immersive, deep and utterly beguiling.

It's All Inside - (4:02)
Review: It's been a long time between drinks for AFMB AKA German nu-jazz pioneer turned deep house producer Bernard Kunz. His last - and previously only - studio album, Mellowdramatic, dropped way back in 1997. Whereas that was full of jazzy downtempo moodscapes - trip-hop with jazz rhythms - A Forest Mighty Black oozes electronic warmth. While each of the 12 tracks is built in some way around a core deep house sound - think enveloping chords, toasty basslines and intricate melodies - there's plenty of variety to keep things fresh. Contrast, for example, the twinkling deep house-soul of "Jade Knights", the horizontal dub-house goodness of "Circumstances" and the head-nodding downtempo shuffle of "It's All Inside", a conscious nod to his '90s trip-hop past.

Siren Chords - (7:13) 122 BPM
Review: It's been almost a year since Gianni Siravo's last outing as Washerman, the rather fine "Basement Chord". Here he delivers two more basement-bothering late night stompers in his inimitable style. Both "Sneaker Girlz" - an exercise in energy-raising peaktime stomp, with just enough late night hyponotism - and "Siren Chords" sound like echoes of a more innocent age, when this kind of hissing, driving, darkroom funk was all the rage. It's "Siren Chords" that most impresses, though, with its bouncing riffs, bleep-era bass and relentless air-horns delivering the kind of rush-inducing thrills rarely found in today's shiny house productions.

Review: With a string of rapturously received feel good club anthems already under his belt, Aussie deep disco-house peddler Griffin James (aka Francis Inferno Orchestra) is back again and he's bought the sun with him. The vitamin D vibes are literally bursting out of "Amber Express", a tune which cleverly weaves 1960s sunbeam funk samples around a fresh galloping house beat. "You're The One" is more mid-tempo and built around a euphoric vocal sample. "Dreamtime" is tougher peak time stuff that's drenched in luscious synths and "Dusty Echoes" dives head first into a swimming pool of acid!

Basement Dub - (6:45) 124 BPM
Review: Despite their fairly deep and tech-tinged roots, Drumpoet Community have a tendency to get anthemic every now and then (see AFMB's spine-tingling "Backup Days" from a couple of years back). This two-tracker from up and coming producer Gianni Siravo is one of those occasions. Lead cut "Basement Chord" is a real shirts-off affair - a riotous, basement-friendly combination of bumpin', boompty-influenced low-end bounce, Detroit-techno influenced hissing hi-hats, rave-era riffery and nagging piano hooks. It even has some sharp, high-end strings and whispered vocal samples. It's not so much big but gargantuan! The accompanying "Basement Dub" tones it down a touch, focusing on the groove for darker late night moments.

Nasty Disposition - (8:21) 123 BPM
Review: For their most anthemic outing yet, Drumpoet Community have turned to the most unlikely of sources: former Compost Records nu-jazzer Bernd Kunz, better known as A Forest Mighty Black. When Compost boss Michael Reinboth decided to launch his Munich-based downtempo/nu-jazz imprint in 1994, it was Kunz who provided the first release - the decidedly trip-hoppish "Do-Ba-Ye". While the boffins among you will point out that he moved on to Detroit-influenced deep house sometime ago (he was part of the Lost Men, who released a trio of releases on Drumpoet Community in the late noughties) it's still a surprise to hear him laying down such an unashamedly 'big' slab of uplifting, piano-centric late night jack. With liberal use of cut-up vocal samples, soaring strings and dense percussion, it has a real classic New York house feel - albeit with a big dose of Underground Resistance thrown in. It's undoubtedly the best thing Kunz has done yet. The more hypnotic "Nasty Imposition" continues in this vein, building a pleasingly trippy groove around dubbed-out electronic riffage, dense drums and delay-laden vocal snippets.

Here You Come - (7:04) 120 BPM
   
Believe - (6:00) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Switzerland based label Drumpoet Community is grabbing the attention of the deep house world at the moment, following a string of impressive releases. Next up is the Zurich based duo, Azuni, whose "Here You Come EP" stands as a clear example of why the label is enjoying so much success lately.

Gianni Siravo and Sven Lacoste have both been around individually for some time. However, it is as the joined force of Azuni that they have enjoyed the most recognition. 2008?s debut album, City Look, released on Agnès? Sthlmaudio imprint introduced the duo to the house world in style. Now, their debut release on Drumpoet Community is looking to propel them further into the limelight with two big, groovy tracks of Detroit influenced house that are stripped down to the max.

"Here You Come" sees simple and pumping grooves build from the ever present riff. It twists and turns in hypnotic fashion, with swirling melodies cushioned by warm synthesizer pads. The hushed vocal takes you straight back inside the warehouses of early days of Detroit, completing that authentic old school sound that resides throughout this record. "Believe?s" vocal is from a similar vein. At first it stabs away in disjointed fashion, but as the track builds it develops into full lines of speech. The track is a slower, jacking number, once again built around a simple riff. The two note organ motif keeps the simplicity and the deep kick drum adds the bumping house sound that lends itself to the earlier part of the night where the dancefloor begins to build nicely.

As Drumpoet Community's reputation for quality house continues to grow, so too does Azuni?s production talents. If the "Here You Come EP" is anything to go by, we can be sure that there is plenty more to come from both label and artist.
