Review: Duffnote are a south coast based label that, back in 2010, released the original package of Hold On by the mysterious B-AYACE to great success. Now they've decided to revisit the track, commissioning two new reworks to keep things fresh. First up, Richard Earnshaw's 'Rebounce" mix sees the tune streamlined into a tight and fizzy slice of deep, tech-house. Soulfuledge meanwhile, get frisky with the phasers and white noise swooshes on their 90s style handbag house rejig. Expect Hold On to dominate charts, playlists and dancefloors all over again in 2017.

Review: Consummate deep housers Mannix hook up with the sensuously minded spoken word starlet Rainy Payne for a sexy, groove-laden showdown. Complete with a collection of rubs and reversions, each take twists the steamy bed-beckoning vibe in a whole new way. From the heritage M1 organ persistence of REDJ's remix to the timeless garage chugs of Richard Earnshaw's subversions, Duffnote have compiled a package that leaves no house fan ignored. Breathlessly big.
