Odd Soulz - (7:46) 125 BPM
Review: London's Christian Sibthorpe, known around the UK house circles as A1 Bassline, touches down on Food Music for the first time after a hefty load of EP's on labels such as Dirtybird, Gruuv and Southern Fried, and he appears in the form of a one track gun-slinger in his familiarly dirty and shuffled-out percussive flex. "Odd Soulz" takes its inspiration from different corners of the electronic spectrum, drafting in an electro bassline down below, a techno beat swing, and finishing with a fine layer of Chicago goodness for the soul. A true UK hybrid tune, and a memorable one at that.

Review: Opening track "Orbit" with its menacing breakbeat and dark atmosphere gets things off to a nice start and there's more of the same later with "Reinforced Texture". The uplifting and soulful vibes of "1.200" could appeal to Planet E or Innervisions fans alike. There's also "Odd Soulz" with its razor sharp bassline and soaring synth leads which give way to a killer drop; peak time tech house done well. "Technicality" gets back into the breakbeat swing of things with dub delay aesthetics and a crunchy, junglised amen for good measure. But "Swathe" is the real highlight here; groovy, snarling acid backed by latin percussion on this impressive house jam.

I Luh U - (6:01) 123 BPM
Review: Bristol's Billy Kenny is up on our charts this week with a mighty fine appearance indeed, and a rather special one, too. This is because the Bristol kingpin steps out of his own This Ain't Bristol label, and lands firmly on Food Music with something a little more house-oriented than what we're usually used to seeing from him. "Horn Thing", for instance, although drenched in a considerably UK sort of coating, is a hard-edged house tune for peak time spinning, and the same can be said about "It's Alive", another bleep-ridden UK house chugger that'll likely appeal to the bass heads, too. "I Luh U", instead, is a different kind of beast; the majority of the tune is taken over by more cinematic sonics before dropping to break-ridden, four-to-the-floor rhythm.

Review: Dutch duo Black Girl / White Girl (Karin and Ty) are among the highest rated upcoming acts in the global house and techno scene, known for their jacking tracks on top imprints such as Relief, Kitball and Observatory Music. Their next bunch of dancefloor bombs come courtesy of London label Food Music, with the deep down and dirty bounce of "ETi" leading the way. It is supported by a wicked old school house remix by good Italian pals MFS Observatory, as well as the acid-inflected percolator jack of "Exoplanet" and saving the best for last on the swing-fuelled, late night tech house groove of "Bigfoot" (extended mix).

Hot For You - (6:11) 124 BPM
Review: After releases on Nurvous, Club Sweat and Green Velvet's esteemed Relief imprint, Aussie Craig Williams is back, but now for UK imprint Food Music and with a little help from new pal Andrea Fratangelo aka Bot. He heads up the Main Course label in addition to hot tracks on the likes of Night Bass and This 'Ain't Bristol. The bouncy and bass driven electro house of "Don't Fake It" is a sure party starter.. and just wait for that drop! Second offering "Hot For You" is the real winner on here though. This brooding and tunnelling acid house journey is geared for some properly strobed out moments on late night dancefloors, we'd count on it!

Review: For the 51st Food Music outing, the prodigious BOT teams up with Dateless for a two-pronged tech attack that swings and bangs hard, much like the rest of this tidy little catalogue! The pair strike up an awesome collaboration in the studio, with both "The Bowdown" and "Solve It" providing some heavy-ass dance flows that make the Germans and Italians seem like debutants; the subtle layer of heavy UK bass on these two swelters adds more guts to a framework that if often plagued by indifference and compromising - but these killers will undoubtedly get your ass moving and onto the dancehall - wicked!

Review: Shadow Child & Kry Wolf bring you Boxia, the next recruit presenting on Food Music. According to Boxia's bio, he has been around for about a year, "dealing in under the counter tracks to some of the DJ elite". Enough said! First up "Biology" is banging acid house with the most exquisite 303 squelch you'll hear ever, complete with chipmunk vocals and white noise build ups; all the good stuff! Next up, the dark tech house of "Crunch" is a more serious affair featuring a pitch shifted monologue and a sample of Inner City's "Pennies From Heaven" riding on top of a rolling, early morning groove for hedonists. Finally "Progress" pays homage to the original deep house sound of early nineties Chicago featuring warm swirling chords, a swing fuelled beat and cut up female vocals.

An alumnus of labels such as International Deejay Gigolo, Planet Rouge and Cr2, Kah certainly has the credentials and he's definitely in fine form on the Call Of Jack EP. From the dub techno infused funky house cut that is the title track, fuelled by that legendary "Can You Feel It" sample, plus the uplifting and euphoric funky house thriller "Sun State" soon follows, and, in addition to this you're treated to a remix of it by label co-chief Shadow Child's Cream Terrace extended remix taking into slinky and hypnotic tech house territory.

Review: Here's something of a surprise: an EP of fluid but forceful deep house cuts from Matthew Harvey, previously best known as one half of New Zealand based D&B outfit Concord Dawn. While there are a few nods to his junglist past throughout - think heavy basslines and clear bass music influences - there's otherwise little to suggest this is his first foray into house. There's much to admire, from the bold pianos, dusty vocal cut-ups and shuffling rhythms of "Barrow" and pleasingly dirty "Farlington", to the woozy chords, low-end wobble and skippy percussion of opener "Dirty Organs".

Review: Italian electro-pop freaks Crookers are back! They make deep house these days and don't do too badly at it. "Beautiful" features a bossa-jazz flavour over its woozy esoteric beats. "Dub Side 3" is more direct like the name would suggest on this dark and low slung journey track that will appeal to Crosstown Rebels fans. Elsewhere there's a couple more remixes of "Beautiful" which are equally impressive but for our money it's all about Kry Wolf's druggy, party-starting tech house makeover which will get the adrenalin levels peaking with its tough beat, funky bassline and trippy elements all working in harmony.

Holla - (6:34) 124 BPM
Review: Danny Howard has only put out a handful of EPs, but on Work That, he distills his energetic DJ sets into two killer cuts. The title track is an upbeat mixture of genres, with a driving techno rhythm supporting insistent vocal samples and rave stabs. Add in some cheeky electro house swagger and you've got an essential big room groove. "Holla" is cut from a similar cloth - while Howard slows down the tempo and makes the groove more swinging, the use of a lurching bass and dubbed out vocals reveals his garage/dubstep influences. This combination, aided along by rolling snares, proves to the irresistible.

Review: London based DJ Danny Howard has previously appeared on Toolroom Records and Spinnin' Deep, in addition to some killer remixes for the likes of legends like Erick Morillo - which received massive support from Pete Tong! His new hit "Feel Real" is real Brittania of the tech-house kind: tough and rolling with summer on The White Isle in mind. Fans of grooves on Knee Deep In Sound, Saved or Material will be all over this one! There is also an awesome remix up next by fellow Londoner Shadow Child - his extended rendition strips things back on this minimal and moody DJ tool for the early evening. The funky bump and shuffle of next offering "kid" features dusty swing fuelled rhythms, beneath diva vocals and police sirens and not forgetting that booming bassline and massive drop - this one's going to be destroying dancefloors well into 2018. Howard's one to watch!

Following on in the same style of grooves displayed for the likes of Mother, Katermukke and This Ain't Bristol, Keno throws down some bass heavy dancefloor weapons on his latest offering. From the swing-fuelled boompty house shenanigans of "Revolve" right through to the funked-up and tough rolling dancefloor assault of "Pick It Up" - these ones will rock any club from London to Berlin and beyond. On remix duties are rising Amsterdam duo ANOTR with an extended remix that ventures down deeper and more hypnotic territory.

First up, the Frenchman gets truly obtuse and bouncy on the druggy main room groove of "Sexy Garl", then gets aboard the acid express on the spacey and infectious "That House Music". This is followed by the jitty percolator jack of "Camouflage" reminiscent of early Green Velvet, while the stripped down rhythm trax of "This Is Not A Skeet" call to mind even earlier sounds of Chicago's first wave.

Review: Theo Keating, who also makes music under The Wiseguys moniker, appears with his twisted brand of UK deep house under the Fake Blood alias on the excellent Food Music - the label itself being a regular home to some of the best up and coming talent from the Anglian corners. If you wanted house music with a distinct 'bass' edge to it then you've come to the right place, indeed, as tracks like "Music Box" flutter their 4/4 rhythm among amen breaks and right-edged basslines. "Hornets" itself is basically a Metalheadz tune circa 1997 that's been given a dosage of tranquiliser and taken down to house-techno levels.

Review: Having previously released for Numbers, Saigon Recordings and 877, Belgian combo Goldffinch are past masters at joining the dots between a myriad of bass-heavy dancefloor styles. Here, they pop up on Food Music with a trio of heavily compressed cuts seemingly inspired by the murky middle ground between revivalist garage (US and UK) and woozy European tech-house. Opener "Black Pyramid" is the most striking of the three tracks, with cut-up vocal samples and Belgian rave style stabs riding a sub-bothering bassline. "Erosion" is more fluid, with dreamy vocal hits swirling round dewy-eyed melodies and skippy US garage grooves. Finally, "Feather" is deeper, providing a modern tech-house take on classic US garage.

Review: People often ask, "what are friends for?" Well, in the case of Pete Graham, they're primarily there to make killer bass tunes with. Here we get four such collaborations, which prove that sometimes, two heads are better than one. "Who Dat" sees Graham joined by Marc Spence and Chris Lorenzo for some menacing, broken streetlight UKF material, "Wom" describes the moody wobble of this Lornezo collaboration, Mark Starr arrives to perk things up with the garage-influenced house of "Something In The Water" and "Finding Neverland" sees Thomas Graham add some seriously low boom to this booty bass jam.

For London's Food Music he unleashes the Dying Of The Light EP where "Stone Cold" provides a dirty late night dancefloor remedy filled with wonky bass, dusty drums and druggy pitchshifted vocals. On "New Beginnings" he provides a sinister and thumping exercise in bass therapy that shows of his dubstep roots while "Drunky" hammers the message, home all guns blazing, with this bouncy, sexy lo-fi affair for the early hours.?

Review: Deep talks from Horx; a man who's name flashes across the bass spectrum from time to time but vanishes just as quickly. With collaborations with Adam F and label boss Shadow Child over the years, he returns for his first solo outing on Food: "Do It Right" is pure funk hypnosis with a slink-sprung bassline, bouncing cloud-leaping melodies and hypnotising vocal sample. Remix-wise Catchment adds more of a tech-primed push while Code 23 (Shadow Child and S.P.Y of course) get busy on the jungle breaks. Do the right thing.

On this new one here for local imprint Food Music, James gets straight into it on "Over" a tough basement jam with rough drums, grunting bass and hypnotic chords all doing groove business the right way. "One Second" is the kind of druggy and rolling main room tech house that will appeal to fans of White Isle party sounds brought to you by Gruuv, Saved or Material Series. Finally "Shifty" gets all classic house on you: this funky, stateside styled house jam was a surprise highlight and has heap of soul in it too!

Barca - (5:56) 126 BPM
Review: Shadowchild's label welcomes Joedan to the fold with this dance floor-friendly release. "Just A Feelin" revolves around detuned riffs, a driving rhythm and some tripped out vocals. It sounds like an update of releases on 90s deep house labels like Cross Section. The title track is more stripped back and takes influences from UK garage, with its crashing snares and relentless off-beat rhythm sounding like a tough, modern take on 2-step. Rounding off the release is "Barca". Once again, it sees Joedan shift approach, with ominous chords building and building over firing hi hats and lone bleeps. It all adds up to one of 2017's most impressive Eps that resides in the house /techno grey area.

Review: When Belgian producer Kill Frenzy first surfaced back in the late '90s, he made a name for himself as a purveyor or robust, slightly jarring electro-house. He's clearly mellowed with age, because this EP for Food Music is decidedly deep. "Errybody" is warm and woozy, all tactile beats, intoxicating chords and drawn-out builds, while the Shadow Child and Tom Flynn Remix turns it into a wonky, acid-flecked stepper. "I Like It", his collaboration with Sacha Robotti, is deeper and dreamier, with just enough garage influence to excite the Hypercolour heads. It's good, as is B-Ju's sparse, percussive, low end-heavy deep garage re-fix.

Review: Having previously impressed with a series of singles on their own Sound of Sumo label, Lewis Darvill and Bill Francis moved to Food Music earlier this year, releasing the Food EP to great acclaim. Here they follow it up with more shuffling, bottom-heavy house. With its pulsating sub-bass, classic US garage beats, choice samples and alien stabs, "Nightmode" is arguably the pick for peaktime plays. That said, the rush-inducing keys, cut-up vocals and cute melodies of "U Like" should also appeal to DJs who like their beats upfront and party-friendly. For those of a ravier persuasion, the Pedestrian remix of "Nightmode" should be an essential purchase.

Debuting last year with a release from Shadow Child, the pair now take centre stage for the label's second release. Entitled The Flood, the lead track combines sharp tech-house beats with buzzsaw bass and slick vocal samples, all coated in deep strings, while "Workin Hard" takes things up a notch with its crisp flurry of claps and synth bubbles driven along by some peak-time rave piano. "Together" meanwhile combines techno and bass in equal measure with its dark, tunnelling acidic bassline and dubbed out piano chords; it's a stark contrast to Makes No Sense's remix of the track which gives it into a light UKG-inspired rework.

Review: Lewis Darvill and Bill Francis are Kry Wolf, a British duo who have made their pushed their name forwards thanks to an extensive number of EP's on labels such as Sounds Of Sumo, and even an appearance on Claude Von Stroke's Dirtybird. Their latest cuts come courtesy of Food Music, who have been on fire in recent months, and they're nuthin' but a load of house tinted bangers. "Pushing Me" is a peak time monster for summer dancefloors such as Cocorico and Cavo Paradiso, while "The Feels" is bumpier and a touch more stuttering when it comes to its bass, and "Cosmic Vibes" shuts things down with a deep, sweltering low-end and minimalistic percussion slamming.

What You Feel - (4:20) 130 BPM
Played by: Mr Brainz, 6Blocc, D-Funk, Majora
Review: Hot Bristol duo Bill Francis & Lewis Darvill are Kry Wolf. who've released previously on Sounds Of Sumo and Palms Out Sounds. My Nu Leng are another up and cming local duo who have appeared on Black Butter Records and MTA Records. If that wasn't enough, the duos also enlist the vocal talents of one Kiko Bun; an original rudeboy from London. Now you may be hinking there's too many cooks in the kitchen but you'd be sadly mistaken! This pitched down and deconstructed take on modern jungliest sounds is pure fire. Rumbling sub bass, choppy amen breaks combined with Bun's convining dub stylin' vocals are the bomb right here.

Review: After revealing each exclusive track over the last month, Kry Wolf finally delivers his DNA collection. A way of showing his own roots and party passions while celebrating his peers and labelmates' finest studio creations, the mix is a great reflection of Wolf, his and Shadow Child's label and its talented roster. Highlights include Shadow Child and Friend Within's WOW-referencing "The Moon", Kry Wolf's percussion-pummelled twist on "Piano Weapon", Geoff K's floor-melting bass shaker "Dysturbed Trumpet" and NYTA's dangerously demonic vocal cut "The Call". Also included is Kry Wolf's mix that joins the dots between the many sonic shades. A great concept backed up by an immaculate collection; DNA is where it's at.

Review: Lena Cullen was once in a short-lived indie-pop duo with Maya Jane Coles called She is Danger. Now, the singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist is making a go of it as a solo artist, and here delivers her debut single for bass/deep house fusionists Food Music. "Timeless" is quietly impressive, with Cullen layering her own strong, attractive vocals over a bass-heavy groove seemingly heavily influenced by both fluid modern deep house and organ-sporting vintage US garage. A variety of Food regulars step up to provide remixes, with Kry Wolf's pleasingly wobbly and in-your-face 4am Dub just edging out Shadow Child's dreamy, UKG-influenced version in the "top rework" stakes.

Review: From Simma Black to Project Fallout, and now Food Music, Low Steppa is steadily making a name for himself in the bass game, and this new EP from the producer is testament to his skills as a fine beatsmith, and as a laterally-minded crafter of fine, sci-fi beats. "On the One" is a house tune with a distinctive UK edge in its low tones, and the same goes for "Rainy Days" and its old-school garage approach. "Gone Black" is a fine piece of soulful dance music that would make any Chicago producer proud, but it's "My Black T Shirt" that earns our deepest attention thanks to its tightly woven groove, and perfectly executed sonic hook. Crafty and recommended.

More - (6:16) 125 BPM
Review: The latest release on Shadow Child's label features the progeny of techno royalty: Dantiez is Kevin 'Reese' Saunderson's son and based on this release, it is clear that a talent for electronic music runs in the family. Teaming up with fellow US producer Mad Villains, he delivers a forward-thinking release. "Philosophy" resounds to tough house beats and repetitive vocal snippets - a continuation of his father's Tronikhouse project perhaps? - as well as searing electronic riffs. On "Insomnia" the pair's focus shifts to tough, bleepy techno, with tonal shifts inspired by LFO, while "More" sounds influenced as much by UK garage as US techno, as skipping beats underpin hypnotic chord builds.

Velvit - (5:56) 125 BPM
Review: "My MPC" is an ode to the one of the key pieces of equipment used to make techno: on the title track's nightmare chord stabs, the MPC is called out by an unknown vocalist, alongside "two turntables and a bunch of records|". As the track reaches a rolling drum climax, there can be no doubt that the MPC has been hugely beneficial to the process. "Tijuana" sees Mak & Pasteman change their focus to concentrate on a shaking, percussive affair that has echoes of Mexican funk. "Velvit" is different again, with the pair combining a house diva vocal with a rolling, stepping techno rhythm

Tell Ya Something (Junior Sanchez Extended remix) - (6:07) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Mak & Pasteman have been solid staples on London's Food Music, but it is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to the talented duo. They will be calling it a day to focus on personal projects and what a way to sign off with this jam titled "Tell Ya Something". It's a fierce expression in percolator jack in the vein of classic Green Velvet/Relief Records style. If that was not enough, the legend from NYC Junior Sanchez delivers an extended remix which gets into some infectious disco loop shenanigans that's sure to burn up the dancefloor - much like anything else by the undisputed veteran.

Review: Mysterious British trio Makes No Sense offer a glimpse into their wonky, bass-heavy world with a bumping EP on Food Music. "Sling" has a kind of Hypercolour feel to it, all thumping beats, garage hustle, booming bass, delay-laden vocal samples and dreamy, post-Balearic breakdowns. Munnibrotherz remix, building their version around powerful garage grooves, sub-bothering low-end wonk and decidedly quirky vocal manipulation. "Therapy" shows a different side to the trio, all nightmarish vocal samples, spooky breakdowns and saucer-eyed tech-house rhythms. "Group Therapy", on the other hand, blends chunky deep house beats with hip-wigglin' UK Funky attitude.

Review: London by way of Mt. Vesuvius duo M.F.S. Observatory return to Food Music for more quality house music on the De Bob EP, which follows up some great ones on Relief Records, Distortion and Daylight Robbery Records. From the intoxicating, afterhours minimal tech-house of "Neutra", to the boompty and funked-up banger that is the title track and "Acid Sprint" taking things down a much darker and sinister route in an early 2000s manner (similar to the first track) - it's clear that this hot Italian duo are on a roll at the moment and we're looking forward to what they have in store for 2020!

Ride Roof Back (radio edit) - (3:26) 120 BPM
Review: Despite residing in Adelaide, Australia, producer Motez Obaidi seems to have a firm grasp on what's rocking clubs this side of the world. His sound - bassy, in-your-face, cheeky and undeniably party-friendly - is steeped in UK garage, the bassy deep house of Huxley and the rubbery fluidity of hot-to-trot labels such as Hot Creations. "Ride Roof Back" - in its Club Edit form - is undeniably big, lacing pitched-down hip-hop vocal samples over a big synth bassline, skippy garage beats and gargantuan synth builds. The deeper "Take Off" isn't as instantly impressive, but makes up for that thanks to some killer drops and tasty UK Funky influences.

Nowhere - (4:16) 120 BPM
Review: Amsterdam-based Italian producer Nima "NT89" Tahmasebi has previously impressed with his in-your-face blends of electro and techno, with occasional forays into deeper, tech-tinged territory. Each of these sides of his personality are explored on this three-tracker for Food Music. "Purple Garden" itself is pleasingly fluid, lacing deep trance melodies and Visionquest atmospherics over a touchy-feely tech-house groove. "Subsquent", on the other hand, is bold and brassy, a pulsating, strobelit fusion of heavy analogue bass, incessant drum machine rhythms and warehouse-friendly sound effects. If that's not enough to get the tastebuds tingling, "Nowhere" takes us into deep garage territory, contrasting cut-up vocals and two-step rhythms with quick bursts of 4/4 groovery and wide-eyed deep house breakdowns.

Review: Issued on Shadow Play's label, this release from Italian producer NT89 is very much of the time. The title track flirts with the spirit and sound of bleep techno, with subsonic tones woven around a rolling groove. In a similar vein is "Royal (with Whitesquare)"; although the artist opts for a deeper approach, the same type of hypnotic rhythm applies. Soon afterwards, the release slips into more esoteric sounds; "Love Game" revolves around a stripped back, metallic rhythm and shiny synths, while "Stripe" ends the release in a similar vein - although on this occasion, a stepping groove underpin's NT89's melancholic sound scapes.

Review: Shadow Child and Kry Wolf's Food Music are on a roll at the moment and their next thriller comes from Sander van den Oever aka Sander Dellariva: a DJ/producer from the Netherlands that is certainly on the rise. Snatch!, Underground Audio and Flashmob LTD are just some of the labels he has released on of late. He delivers a sublime serving of Afro-influenced uplifting house on the fittingly titled "Piano Track". Also featured is the tough rolling main-room bounce of "Can't Take It" and the hard hitting peak time techno of "Acid Pump" with its sick TB-303 flourishes. Dellariva is definitely one to watch moving forward into 2018!
