Review: Living up to his most recognised name with every release, LA producer Gifted & Blessed joins the Eglo family with a quite excellent EP under the lesser spotted Abstract Eye moniker. This name was last used by Reyes-Whittaker on the Cool Warm Divine EP for the Valentine Connexion imprint, a release that impressed the Juno review crew despite the fact the Abstract Eye identity was under wraps at the time. The rich analogue techno explorations dipped in glowering warmth and soul that ran through that release are present and correct on Whittaker's Eglo debut, especially the opening track "Analogous". Commencing with a neck snapping percussive flex, it doesn't take long for the track to get consumed by flourishes of rich analogue texture and undercurrents of fuzzed out bass. Alongside this "Grandfather Fire" floats in more pensive strains of machine made funk, gradually unfurling into intricately layered bursts of kaleidoscopic colour that retain a certain restraint throughout. Whittaker reserves the best till last however, with "I Feel It In My Forehead" making for a gloriously paced sojourn through sumptuous electronic soul.

Review: Eglo's resident boogie botherers step up for another EP of honey-coated synthesiser jams. What's noticeable is the leaning towards a more crisp, electro style, most apparent on "U" and "Groove". The beats fall in a gentle breakbeat, clean and low in the mix, so that the dense swathes of melody can take centre stage. However, the end result comes off a little too slick when compared with some of the earlier Arp 101 material. "True" addresses things somewhat, taking that skewed funk groove that distinguishes the man from so many producers mining the boogie sound, allowing the staggered groove to accentuate the chunky Moog bass.

Review: Since going solo last year, former Onra collaborator Byron Blaylock has yet to put a foot wrong. Each successive EP has brought with it a swathe of killer new jams straddling the blurred lines between soul, jazz, hip-hop, deep house and jazz-funk. There's more of the same on Leaving This Planet, the Alabama-raised producer's first EP for the mighty Eglo. So while opener "Song for a Friend" is a superior, jazz-flecked deep house bumper smothered in killer electric piano solos, the track that follows, "Mind, Body & Soul" is a squelchy tech-jazz masterpiece. It's the same story on the flip, as floor-friendly jazz-breaks ("Blow Your Mind") make way for a heady trip into intergalactic jazz-funk territory ("SSDP"). As the worn-out old saying goes, this is "all killer, no filler".

Review: UK legend Dego and killer keys-man Kaidi Tatham have been in a rich vein of form of late, dropping brilliant EPs on Eglo, Sound Signature and Rush Hour (the latter under their 2000Black alias). Here, they return to Eglo with four more slices of warm, rich, soul-flecked fluidity. As with previous outings, much of the material has a laidback jazz-funk feel, particularly "Orbiting Uhara" and the delicious "The Vault Descends" (think bustling bruk rhythms and darting boogie synths). They also offer up some tougher, synth-laden bruk-funk in the shape of "Man Made", while "Black Is Key" sees them unfurl a head-nodding vocal roller.

It's backed with "Technology" which features button pushing from Stones Throw artist (and Madlib's younger brother) Oh No, while it also features a wonderful ten minute live rendition of "Red Light" done in collaboration with the Eglo Live Band.

Review: With only a few but already classic EPs such as the astounding "Love Me Like This" and "Vacuum" under his belt, Floating Points seems to have an uncanny knack of effortlessly fusing house, nu jazz and R&B to create something wondrous, and "People's Potential" continues his winning streak. The title track kicks off proceedings with a wandering electric piano, jazzy guitar licks and rim shots which takes you on a Moog-driven journey. Things take a darker turn on the B-side with "Shark Chase" pairing a fat, prowling bassline with spooked-out piano to claustrophobic and menacing effect. You're going to need a bigger boat...

Review: The world of underground dance music may seem to be fracturing into ever-smaller subdivisions, but it's fair to say that no matter what your disposition is, the arrival of a new record from Sam 'Floating Points' Shepherd is generally something to be celebrated by all, especially given his last release was the single-sided Wires record last year. Naturally arriving via his own Eglo Records, the two track King Bromeliad is vintage Floating Points and offers two distinct sides to the Sam Shepard production palette. The title track commences with what could feasibly be a field recording of people gathered outside Plastic People before a rousing rhythm of jazz infused house comes bumping in and has you hooked for the next eight minutes. It's more than matched by the epic "Montparnasse" which exudes a more electronic approach over 11 heavenly minutes. Yes Sam!

Review: Big props due to the Eglo network for this release, an impeccable EP of Floating Points productions which cannot fail to impress on any level. Musically, it's perhaps Shepherd's most ambitious collection to date, veering through sumptuous deep house, expertly crafted broken boogie from another century and bristling techno. "Myrtle Avenue" is a dreamlike way to open a release, plunging into vast, widescreen expanses of texture and detail, further cementing comparisons with Theo as the freeform keys align with undulating layers of percussion. "Realise" and "Obfuse" are the precursors to the standout tracks on the second twelve, but are in no way filler, with the former teasing out finely placed 808 programming over pensive simmering patterns, whilst the latter is a fizzing, stripped down drum machine workout that is gradually joined by yet more tenderised synths. And thus we come to "Arp3", a track which will secure this release a place in many a heart, expertly growing into a haunting techno epic and filled with so many production intricacies and rhythmic deviations it demands several repeat plays. "Sais" rounds off the release, revealing in full detail the track's fuzzy, orchestral glory some time after a Dub version appeared on record store day.

Review: The latest two-track jam from Floating Points for his own Eglo imprint further cements his reputation as a naturally gifted producer steeped in an understanding of soul and groove. "Marilyn" is bursting with good-times vibes from the deceptively smooth intro to the bumping boogie of the drop. It's the sheer musicianship that stands head and shoulders above his contemporaries. "Farukx" lilts to life on a bed of wistful strings, and when the beat does come into play, it's a steppy stumble of gossamer hats and snares that manage to trip over each other in disjointed harmony.

Review: Those who missed out on this Floating Points obscurity on its initial vinyl release must be pretty happy right now. You see, Eglo originally released it a couple of months back as an ultra-limited, single-sided 10" single. For those who don't buy vinyl, it's actually something of a bonus to see "Sais" get a digital release, as it's a pretty hot slab of contemporary broken beat. With a weighty dub bassline, mournful strings and snappy, jazz-influenced beats that weigh in somewhere between classic bruk and 2-step garage, it's easily one of Floating Points' heaviest releases to date.

Review: Sam Shepherd has long been a master of the kind of ultra-deep, rolling, soft focus deep house that raises the spirits and soothes the soul. Even so, there's something incredibly special about "Nuits Sonores", the lead track from this must-have EP. Based around a deep, tactile groove and blessed with rising synth solos, dancing acid lines and his usual fireside Rhodes antics, the track rises magnificently for 12 spellbinding minutes. As it progresses, further elements make their way into the mix, until it reaches the kind of organic deep house climax that makes even the grumpiest souls go weak at the knees. Flip for "Nectarines", the kind of loose-limbed fusion of deep house sassiness, Detroit techno electronics and fluid jazz drumming at which Shepherd has always excelled.

Review: Ever since it was debuted by Benji B on his Radio 1 show a couple of months back, there has been a general clamour for the release of "Danger", a rippling, techno-leaning Floating Points production that brings to mind his stunning (and slept on) remix of Sebastien Tellier. A peak time throbber this in not, with Mr Shepherd retaining his trademark jazzuality and penchant for deep pools of sub bass, with an epic introduction of soaring synths and rippling arpeggios. Up next you'll find the deeply atmospheric "Miniature 27", which sees Floating Points dipping his toes into beatless, ambient waters. A stunning and most essential release.

Review: The title track on FunkinEven's latest Eglo jam takes no time at all in declaring its intentions in decimating the dance. A stomping beat and nasty acid line get scuppered by edits that display a desire to screw people's heads up just when they were getting into the groove. "Take Back" ploughs a similar furrow, but with a many-limbed b-boy swerve where "Roland's Jam" was all rigid 4/4 stomp. "XXX" gets even more explicitly acidic as the 303 comes through in full effect. Those with a soft-spot for rough stuff will lap this up and come back begging for more!

Review: Funkineven and Fatima are no studio strangers, each sharing credits on the others previous Eglo releases but this is without doubt their best work together to date. Eglo could have just dropped "Phoneline" as a one track release and we'd be singing it's praises to anyone that can hear, so kudos to all involved for complementing the track with further examples of Funkineven and Fatima's obvious studio chemistry. "90s" echoes the satin dipped R&B antics of TLC at their most sultry, whilst it's complemented by that killer swinging boom bap arrangement from Funks, while "East To West" crosses LA boogie vibes with some off the scale rhythmic subtleties that would do Maurice Fulton proud, with Fatima showing the breadth of their vocal range over the elastic groove. This 12" is dominated by the brilliance of "Phoneline" however, with Fatima and Funkineven indulging in flirtatious chatter over demented yet slick as f*ck MPC manipulation. It's one of those tracks that tops the charts for months to come in the bizarro world we'd rather live in - I guess we'll have to make do with jamming this in every dancehall possible.

Review: Although Funkineven's been an Eglozoid from the label's early days, recent times have seen the producer and DJ develop an independent streak, establishing his own Apron label and laying down collaborative roots with like-minded stateside artists Kyle Hall and Delroy Edwards. The bond is still strong however, and Funkineven makes a superb return to Eglo colours here with "Egypt" a cut described quite aptly by the label as a "Sakamoto-esque journey over the pyramids," combining throbbing sub bass with pulsating synth buzz. On the virtual flip is Gifted & Blessed's "Reflexes", a highlight amongst highlights of the Eglo Records Vol 1 compilation issued earlier this year and here committed to wax for the very first time. The track's fractured analogue nature is a fine accompaniment to Funkineven's A-side.

Review: Dirg Gerner is the faux mysterious side project of Chilean producer FlaKo, who now resides in London after a stint in Berlin. The blue eyed crooning of Gerner was first seen on Eglo offshoot Ho Tep in 2011 and he's subsequently appeared on Kutmah's Worldwide Family compilation for Brownswood Recordings. Fresh from a successful graduation at this year's RBMA in NYC, FlaKo ascends to Eglo under the Dirg Gerner banner with this self titled six track EP that's sung and produced entirely by the artist himself and expands gracefully on the woozy, soulful approach previously seen on that Ho Tep release. It seems that Gerner's the latest London dweller to be welcomed fully into the Eglo fold with hints that he's been fully involved in the forthcoming debut album from label muse Fatima.

Review: South East London four-piece Hejira made a big splash with their Matthew Herbert-produced debut album, 2013's Prayer Before Birth, and the same year's Floating Test collaboration with Floating Points. Here, they resurface on the latter and Alex Nut's Eglo imprint. The Name Surname EP is an altogether softer, dreamier set of tracks than their previous releases, but it's no worse for it. There's something wonderfully attractive about the emotion-rich vocals, subtle pianos and sparse electronic rhythms of "Pinter", while "Rhyme Or Reason" sounds like an inspired blend of smoky trip-hop and '60s psychedelic pop. That hint of psychedelia can also be heard on "Too Mean To Lie", while the title track is a yearning, sun-kissed delight.

Review: Fresh from the runaway success of his Yussef Kamaal project with Yussef Dayes, Henry Wu returns to Eglo Records for the first time since 2015. While it's jazzy broken beat opener "Deep In The Mudd" - co-produced by Hardhouse Banton - that's naturally getting most attention, there's plenty to get excited about elsewhere on the EP. Check, for example, the hissing jazz of "Boards & Skins", Kaidi Tatham's deep, sparkling and effortlessly soulful re-make of "Just Negotiate", and the ultra-deep, Rhodes-laden bliss of "Reflections", a beat-less treat. Also worth checking is the EP's other Hardhouse Banton hook-up, "Century", which charges off on a high-tempo, mutant P-funk tip.

"It's Better For You" rolls out with Amp Fiddler-level jauntiness, complete with a heavenly chorus, "Re-Incarnation" is a dirtier, heavier jazz-riddled number that's not dissimilar to a Child Of Lov joint while "Twelve" is instant feel good a la Sun Ra or Stevie Wonder circa Innervisions. Beautiful. If you like Husayn's output as part of SA RA Creative Partners you need to check this and then start hassling Eglo to drop the LP!

From the tripped out synth-stab abstraction of the title track to the organic, loose and fretless jazz of "Kirkis Runs The Voodoo Town", the broken-synth-falling-down-the-stairs summery grooves of "Vovo" and the slo-mo Fender Rhodes nod-out, "Helium", the answer's in there somewhere - you just gotta listen.

You won't find a better example of this in action than on the slovenly boogie that is "Scientific Brainpriest", all sensuous bass and cooing synths, while the pads wrap themselves around your ears like finest satin. It's a corny analogy but it really does feel that good. "Pimpin'" meanwhile updates the middle ground between house and broken beat with a dreamy blue note affair that gets lifted by the bongo-heavy beat and truly feel good strings.

Review: Experienced producer Shafiq Husayn first appeared on Eglo back in 2014, delivering a fine EP of hip-hop framed modern soul, with the assistance of a battery of collaborators. Two years on he returns to Alex Nut and Floating Points label, with Eglo regulars Fatima and Jimetta Rose lending a hand. It sounds like Husayn has been listening to Floating Points, because "On Our Way Home" is a sumptuous, string-drenched affair, with orchestral parts rising and falling over a skittish electronic rhythm. The focal point, of course, is Fatima and Rose's harmonious lead vocal, which is as sweet, evocative and addictive as you'd expect. It may only be a single-sided release, but it's one killer cut.

Review: This isn't exactly confidential information but, in case you weren't aware, Steve Spacek is D-Bridge's brother, a man who has helped to shape d&b over the years; it's clear that electronic music runs deep in the family bloodline, and both have achieved something special over the years. Eglo has been pivotal in shaping Spacek's career as of late, positioning him as a leader of the UK house-juke-bass crossover. "If You Want 2 Find Me" is the main tune here, and it leads with a rolling punch of bass dropped over sparse r&b vocals in what is a truly deep and magnetic piece of club music. "Time Is Running Out" is much more house-leaning thanks to its steady 4/4 sway, but the groove is filled with deep harmonics and hazy, spectral sonic aesthetic. There is also an acapella of the title track, and an instrumental for the heads. Big release from Floating Points' stable!

Review: Stuttering off-beat fractured dancehall wizardry, Spacek smashes it once again with "Follow Me". Nothing fits as it should - and that's exactly how we like it. The keys ripple just behind the drums while the bass bumps ahead of them and Steve keeps his own time with his clipped falsetto falling just on the rhythmic sweet spot - but you're never quite sure how he made it in time. Loaded with an instrumental and acapella, there's heaps of creativity to be had right here.

Review: It was only a matter of time before Henry Wu and Detroit's K15 would link up with London's Eglo, and their respective prior releases for the likes of Wild Oats, Rhythm Section and 22a have earned them a spot in one of the finest house and broken beat labels around. "Love's Gambit" is a perfect example of the latter genre, a sublime blend of jazzy percussion swings and smooth melodic drifts, followed by the even more soulful bounces of the gentle "Space & Time" - one for the jazz fusion heads! "The Anthem" heads towards more housey spheres thanks to its stable beat pattern - it-s an absolute peach of a tune, by the way - but it's "Shahada" that governs the dancefloor with its rough MPC drum programming and finger-licking synth rotations. A beautiful and fitting addition to the catalogue.
