Review: A round of applause for Dave Harvey's Futureboogie label, which is closing its doors after a decade in which it's releases got stronger and more varied year on year. This superb compilation acts as the imprint's final testament, offering no less than 20 previously unheard nuggets from the Bristol-based imprint's nearest and dearest. Given the wealth of high-grade material on show, singling out highlights is tough, but our current favourites include the echoing,'80s alternative pop-meets-proto house dubbiness of Tech Support's 'Writers Block', the alien synths, glassy-eyed stabs and bustling electro drums of Warehouse Preservation Society's 'Ron's House', the kaleidoscopic house psychedelia of Manami's 'Nacros.Is', the bleeping, drug-fuelled oddness of Chez De Milo's 'Need Someone' and the breakbeat-acid insanity of Hard Ton's 'Don't Believe The Hype'.

Gliding Future - (6:11) 118 BPM

Review: Brussels-born DC Salas has been in good form in 2021, with this outing on Dave Harvey's Futureboogie imprint following well-received EPs on Pets Recordings and Live From Robert Johnson. Salas sets his stall out on title track 'The Weight of Uncertainty', an echoing, faintly funky slab of proto-house/Italo-disco/acid house fusion full of sweaty drums, fuzzy bass and spacey synth sounds. French great I:Cube weighs in with a predictably impressive remix that takes the track even further into deep space via swirling chords, ambient house sonics and Kraftwerk-esque bleeps. Elsewhere on the EP, 'Gliding Future' sounds like a pitched-down Nitzer Ebb jam from 1988 and 'They Don't See It' joins the dots between new beat and early acid house.

Review: Bristol disco stalwarts Futureboogie bring us an EP from Hungary's Andras 'Gensi' Genser that features a brace of remixes from London lad Decius. The original of 'Primavera 707' is a dreamy 'nu-disco meets melodic/organic house' affair that's served up with or without a female vocal in an unidentified language - Portuguese, maybe? Decius's remix takes the track down a more Afro-inspired route with busy, shuffling percussion and a male vocal, though again a Dub is also available. Elsewhere, 'Humble Brush' is an energetic nu-disco instrumental, while 'The Great Body Buzz' is the finest cosmic-acid meltdown you'll hear all week.

Dont Mess My Head (Dave Aju remix) - (6:22) 117 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Curiously, Warehouse Preservation Society's slim discography contains numerous acclaimed remixes for labels such as Rogue Cat Sounds and Wicked, but only one original production - a contribution to a multi-artist EP on Love on the Rocks. 'Endlessly', then, is their debut single - and very good it is too. In its original form, the track is druggy, trippy and seeped in old school nostalgia, with tactile synthesizer motifs and stabbing electronic motifs rising above a psychedelic, acid-style bassline and metronomic drums. 'Dublessly' is even sleazier and darker in tone, offering a superb, warehouse-ready alternative. 'Don't Mess My Head' is more percussive but no less dirty, doffing a cap to both proto-house and NYC freestyle, while Dave Aju's electro-influenced remix is even more sweaty, bass-heavy and drum-laden.

Bushwa (Smagghe & Cross Beat Tool) - (7:44) 120 BPM
Review: Pre-pandemic, James Dyer was a rising star on the Bristol club scene, with a trademark sound that tended towards the cosmic, chugging and otherworldly. Here he makes his production bow as Chez de Milo on local label Futureboogie, beginning brilliantly with the throbbing, paranoid and wide-eyed 'Bushwa', where intense, undulating acid lines, bleeping melodies and seriously spooky pads bubble away atop a thrusting, bass-heavy groove. His love of bleeps and ambient techno era electronics is further explored on 'Mantella' and the more dubbed-out, sub-heavy trip that is 'Golden Ratio'. Also worth a listen is the Smagghe & Cross version of 'Bushwa', which features two long dark and driving sections of trippy dancefloor pleasure divided by a brilliantly bizarre ambient breakdown.

Deja Vu - (6:05) 118 BPM
Running Amore - (6:14) 116 BPM
Review: Sometime Roam Recordings and Nein artist Zakmina has been rather quiet of late, so this outing on Bristol's increasingly assured Futureboogie Recordings label is long overdue. Titke track 'Church of Madness' is pleasingly psychedelic and mind-altering, with the publicity-shy producer layering trippy acid lines, ghostly chords and wayward electronic motifs atop a chugging, Moroder style bassline and early '80s machine drums. On his accompanying 'Ezoteric Breakdance Remix', Hungarian producer Gnork re-imagines the track as a melancholic chunk of eccentric dancefloor electro. Elsewhere, 'D?j? vu' is a foreboding, strobe-lit acid chugger capable of inducing hallucinations, while 'Running Amore' is a hedonistic, timbales-sporting late-night throb-job.

Review: And you don't stop. Futureboogie outta Bristol continue their domination of west-country house tempos and disco vibes with a A Summer Riot IX (Part 2)! Topping this selection of artists is PBR Streetgang who go there again in offering the world another take of that "I Feel Love" bassline while "Pigeon St" by Jakobin keeps it real with a cooling deep house jam done Chicago style to balance out any floor. Lithuania's Roe Deers has been tapped up with a lo-fi-funk and percussive electro number "Monkey Dance" while there's some gnarly acid and groove box action in Christophe's main course: "Critters 2 (The Revenge)". Little known entity Acolyte turns in a highlight with some dubbed-out house nuance in "Fire In Zero Gravity" alongside Manakinz' hall of mirrors tripper "Mystic Throbber." I predict a riot!

Piu Mosso - (5:57) 119 BPM
Theus Mago & Thomass Jackson - "Sergio Ramos" - (6:52) 117 BPM
Review: Four cuts here from Mexico's Mateo Gonzalez - better known as Theus Mago - that will suit those who like their disco on the more electronic/leftfield/experimental side. Opener 'Apache Nights', for instance, owes far more to bleep techno and the early Warp sound than it does to the likes of (say) Chic or Earth Wind & Fire, while the accompanying Chicken Lips re-rub comes on like Kraftwerk jamming with Rennie Pilgrem. 'Piu Mosso' is a more straight-up homage to early 80s Euro/Italo disco and centres around an infectious, Arabic-sounding hook, while finally closer 'Sergio Ramos' could work in disco/Italo/EBM and progressive house sets alike.

Entrance - (6:29) 115 BPM
Provincial Disturbance (Urulu's Liquid Squid mix) - (6:27) 130 BPM
Review: Futureboogie's recent move towards embracing the more cosmic, mind-altering and psychedelic side of the house and disco spectrum has resulted in a string of must-check EPs. Their latest missive, which comes courtesy of former Disco Halal contributor Kincaid, is another. For us, the undisputed highlight is "Voices From The Year 3000", a hallucinatory chunk of slow house hedonism propelled forwards by angular acid lines, acid-trip electronics and feverish analogue synthesizer motofs. The track that follows, "Entrance", is if anything even more trippy, with dark aural textures, sparse percussion hits and intergalactic acid motifs sashaying around a deep electro groove. Lead cut "Provincial Disturbance" is rather good, too - think snappy electro meets chugging dark disco - while Steve Urulu's remix of the same track is an insanely bass-heavy, bleep-inspired techno treat.

Italian Heat - (8:14) 123 BPM
Review: Alex 'Kiwi' Warren's first outing on Futureboogie, 2018's "Amityville", was something of a gem, so hopes are naturally high for this belated follow-up. The London-based producer hits the ground running with opener "Charlie's New Vision", a dark and brooding affair that peppers a sleazy, all-action analogue bassline and unfussy dancefloor drums with a bubbly electronic lead lie, echoing blues guitar notes and tipsy spoken word snippets. Johnny Aux provides an even more druggy-sounding remix before Warren returns with "Ghiaccio", a glassy-eyed trip into deep space in which attractive, analogue sounding synthesizer lines buzz around an arpeggio-driven Euro-disco groove. Rounding off a rock solid EP is "Italian Heat", a gloriously shirtless and celebratory dance through revivalist, early'80s Italo-disco pastures.

Deo Mort - (4:57) 119 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Surprisingly, this Futureboogie label debut is Toby Tobias's first single since 2018. He's clearly been in fine form in the studio, though, because it contains some real gems. Title track "Trippy Steve" is terrific - a heady, relentless late night/early morning house workout full of deep bass, weird noises, spaced-out chords, dubbed-out synthesizer motifs and whispered vocal snippets. Fantastic Man remixes, beefing up the beats and adding some aggressive, acid-syle sleaziness. Elsewhere, "Cosmic Slang" sits alone somewhere between space disco, electro and broken beat (it's a place other producers should visit more often) while "Deo Mort" is the kind of mind-altering Afro-cosmic house workout you'd expect to hear at a remote outdoor free party while off your box at 6am (assuming, of course, the DJs involved have good taste).

Review: Under the Ponty Mython alias, experienced producer Alexander Pletnev can usually be relied upon to hit the spot. Happily, we can confirm that his latest EP - his second for Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings - is another strong effort. He begins by wrapping some alien sounding synthesizer lead lines and quirky electronic ticks around a swinging, breakbeat influenced groove on "Speak For Yourself", before repeating the trick on the more bass-heavy and tropical tinged "Barocco". EP highlight "Jealous Lover" is a wonderfully bleeping, analogue-rich chunk of intergalactic deep house, while Jonny Rock's remix of the same track is a sweaty, out-of-this-world party jam laden with dub delay, analogue dub bass and trippy effects.

Review: A few years ago, International Feel Recordings treated us to a handful of inspired 12" singles by Black Spuma, a collaborative project helmed by Fabrizio Mammarella and Phillip Lauer. Here the duo returns - this time on Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings - with a first new single in two years. Title track "Crunch Level" is nowhere near as "retro-Balearic" as their previous work, instead offering a mind-altering blend of ghostly vintage synthesizer chords, robotic machine guns and foreboding, arpeggio style sequenced bass. It's the kind of thing we'd expect to hear if Alexander Robotnik and John Carpenter got together in the studio. Elsewhere on the EP, "Agguato" is a funk-fuelled chunk of early '80s new wave/Italo-disco fusion, while "Adamantine" is like a "Behaviour"-era instrumental Pet Shop Boys B-side.

Review: Without fail, Futureboogie Recordings' annual "Summer Riot" EPs are always amongst the Bristol-based imprint's finest releases of the year. This year's edition - the eight in total - is no different. It's five floor-friendly cuts include a locked-in chunk of late night techno hypnotism by A Sagittarian (undulating opener "Machine Elf"), a raw and wonky, mind-altering analogue house jam full of Yellow Magic Orchestra style computer bleeps (Red Flower Union's "Natural Self") and a piano-sporting chunk of old school house revivalism from Statue ("Ivory"). Manchester producer Neil Diablo hits the spot with the starburst Italo-disco chug of "Colorado", while Kincaid gleefully dances through New York freestyle and Bobby Orlando style hi-NRG on EP standout "Bulfas".

Review: Under the Natural Sugars alias, Bristol-based DJ/producer Tim Oxley Smith has previously delivered tasty chuggers and cosmic groovers on a couple of Invisible Inc compilations. This debut EP for home city label Futureboogie Recordings is therefore well deserved. It's also rather good. The star of the show is undoubtedly "Zombie Jungle", a druggy chunk of space disco whose low-slung mid-tempo groove comes smothered in alien-sounding synthesizer lead lines and lashings of bonus percussion. Manfredas turns that into a rushing sprint through throbbing Italo-disco/nu-disco fusion, before Oxley Smith offers up the spaced-out dub disco chug of "The Soothsayer" and the undeniably cosmic shuffle of "Sarsen Trail". As debut singles go, it's a doozy.

The former Wild Bunch DJ is at it again here on another strong outing for Futureboogie Recordings. Check first the spacey, dubbed-out chords, booming bass and sweaty disco drums of "A Moment", before admiring the suitably wonky minor key synthesizer solos that help make "Siliconada" one of his wildest house tracks yet. The "NBs Mix" of the same track adds a little soulful flava into the mix via a variety of jazz-funk samples, while "Flutter" is a low-end heavy chunk of loopy disco-house for the dystopian generation

Review: Lo-fi synth maestro Ruf Dug has cordially invited us to take a short stay on "Ruffy's Island", a lesser-known tropical paradise nestled somewhere between Manchester and Madagascar. To get a better view, he first invites us to dance along aboard his "Boat Party", where cheery lead lines skip around a crackling analogue groove. Next up is guided tour of the island's "Techno Cave", a dark place where you're encouraged to dance shirtless to the accompaniment of tribal drum samples, foreboding riffs and mind-altering electronics. Lurking towards the back is Sharif Laffrey, who guides us through ten minutes of stomping beats, weirdo riffs and glassy-eyed jacking intensity. The highlight of the trip, though, may well be "Abandoned Pyramid", a dubbed-out chunk of tropical synthesizer madness constructed in cahoots with Contours.

Review: Futureboogie is the label arm of the UK booking agency and welcomes the multi-talented James Welsh to the roster. While he's just as adept at making punk and playing bluegrass, Welsh has also a long track record in making electronic music - and can lay claim to remixing Depeche Mode and Britney Spears. All of this experience bubbles to the surface on Hammers: the title track is a deep, rolling affair, populated by spiralling acid lines and hushed chord sequences, while on "Denergy", he opts for a more stripped back affair, as a menacing bass underpins complex, 303-laced rhythms. Rounding off the release is a sweeping, rolling take on the title track by Bristol artist Hodge.

Review: Magic Feet boss Craig Bratley is not the most prolific producer in the world, but his sporadic EPs are usually excellent. Certainly, this outing on Futureboogie Recordings contains some superb music. Pulsating opener "99.9" - a body-jacking, Italo-influenced throb-job high on horror-influenced synthesizer melodies and foreboding riffs - is particularly potent, though wholehearted Italo-disco tribute "Italo Love" and the slo-mo chug-fest "Take Me To Bedford or Lose Me Forever" are almost as good. The EP also includes a sublime interpretation of "99.9%" by Andrew Weatherall, whose stretched-out take places exotic, snaking synth lines and yelping vocal samples over a Love From Outer Space-ready pitched-down groove.

Review: Following fine early outings on Cin Cin and Warm, psychedelic-minded house fusionist Elliott Lion pops up on Bristol's Futurebogie Recordings with more energetic, otherworldly club tracks. Title track "Ecstasy" is a typically swirling, densely layered and intoxicating affair, with spiraling electronics, "Tomorrow Never Knows" style exotic audio textures, feverish effects and dewy-eyed vocals rising above a loose-but-booming rhythm track. Rom Flugel runs with the "just necked a tab and I'm starting to hallucinate" vibe on his accompanying remix, in the process making the track even more trippy and mind-altering. To round off the EP, Lion serves up a more hypnotic bonus cut that sits somewhere between Isolee, Hardway Brothers and Futureboogie regular Christophe.

The After The Rain EP sees him return to Bristol institution Futureboogie, for the first time since 2016's "The Carrington Spirituals". Featuring the very soulful and near spiritual title track, the lo-slung funk attack of "The French Exit " and the late night acid express of "Raise" (featuring some vocals reminiscent of the legendary Daryl Pandy) among others - each one is a a sure shot and will light up the dancefloor.

Review: Geoff "Man Power" Kirkwood has been friends with Futureboogie Recordings founder Dave Harvey for years, so it's little surprise to see him releasing an EP on the on-point Bristol imprint. "Barranquilla Trifle" is arguably one of his most ear-catching cuts to date, too - an exotic, humid and mind-altering fusion of bubbly electronics, glassy-eyed synthesizer riffs and hustling drum machine beats propelled forwards by wave upon wave of mind-altering acid lines. Mancunian hero Ruf Dug's accompanying "Zouk Remix", which sounds like a long lost synth-zouk classic from the original Balearic era, is arguably even better. The cosmic deep house shuffle of bonus cut "Kaon" completes a superb package.

Review: Alexander Pletnev aka Ponty Mython is originally from Russia, but is currently settled in Vilnius, Lithuania. His releases have popped up on top labels such as Dirt Crew, Nurvous and Quintessentials in recent times - and he can now add Bristolian tastemakers Futureboogie to that list. His sleek nu-disco style of groove as heard on "Pink Tango" is a neon-lit, lo-slung balearic groove for Summertime cocktail parties. Injecting more of an '80's flavour into it is Fabrizio Mammarella (one half of Black Spuma with Lauer) working his retroverted magic as always and jam packed full of vintage synth presents. From something different, Pletnev offers up the tropical vibe of "Appreciate It While It's Not Too Late" (original mix) and its mesmerising marimba action that makes you wish you had a hammock and Pina Colada in hand.

Review: Alex "Kiwi" Warren is undoubtedly a star in the making. Since he last appeared on Futureboogie in 2016, his stock has risen further thanks to fine outings on Moda Black, Blitz and 17 Steps. Predictably, this is another fine EP. We're particularly enjoying the horror-inspired Italo-disco chug of "Amityville", where Warren makes terrific use of notable vocal samples and a thickset arpeggio bassline, though DJ Tennis's breezier, disco-tinged deep house re-make is almost as good. There's more dark and throbbing Italo-disco style fun to be had via the thrillingly heavy and pulsating "Warriors", while EP closer "Paco" - all glacial, tumbling synthesizer melodies, undulating acid bass and unfussy drum machine beats - offers a more considered option for those searching for solid warm-up fare.

Review: Having spent the last few years quietly building his reputation via decent EPs for ESP Institute, Saft and Keep it Zen, Ian Blevins has had a relatively quiet 2017. This outing on Dave Harvey's Futureboogie Recordings label is only his second release of the year. It is, though, rather good, with Blevins gleefully sprinting between acid-flecked, Italo-disco inspired Balearic house (tidy opener "Round Trip"), rush inducing, organ and acid-driven positivity ("Roland's Rat") and rolling, slow-building late night goodness (the bubbly melodies and elongated chords of "Can You Count My Dream"). The obligatory remix is provided by Lobster Theremin and Uncanny Valley regular Panthera Krause, whose Moroder-on-happy tablets version of "Round Trip" is a warm, hazy and life-affirming delight.

Review: Having first graced Futureboogie Recordings late last year with the brilliant Brisk EP, Phillip Lauer returns to the Bristol-based imprint for a second sortie into loved-up, retro-futurist house territory. While you'll find a fine example of his usual glassy-eyed, Balearic-minded deep house sound (the wavy riffs, melodious bass, cowbells and tuneful electronics of "Tyco"), it's the trippy and gently psychedelic moments elsewhere on the EP that most impress. "Clipper", a kind of saucer-eyed synth-pop-meets-house number smothered in cascading synthesizer melodies and Italo-disco, is very enjoyable, while darker, acid-flecked opener "Pile" - think moody Detroit techno at a house tempo with flashes of EBM-era dancefloor sleaze - is arguably even better.

Review: Anyone who has been to Oban on the North West coast of Scotland will confirm that it's a rather picturesque place. We shouldn't be surprised, then, by the intense beauty that courses through "Music Will Save The Day", the first Austin Ato release by experienced Oban-based producer Colin Bailey (he of Drums of Death fame). Skillfully combining chiming bells, meandering synthesizer lines, crunchy drums and sparkling piano riffs, "Music Will Save The Day", which is available in both Dub and Vocal variants, is something of a summery treat. It's backed by two terrific remixes: a kind of Reichian minimalism meets new age version by Auntie Flo, and a thrilling peak-time take from label regular Christophe, who joins the dots between jacking acid and hands-aloft piano house.

Review: Futureboogie's annual multi-artist EP has become as big a part of our summer as tedious festival queues, soggy outdoor parties and complaining about the British weather. Label stalwart Christophe kicks off this sixth edition via the clattering machine drums, glistening Balearic flourishes and thrillingly psychedelic acid lines of "West Side Critters", before Zombies in Miami go all Eastern on the sitar-sporting house exotica of "The Legends of the Hidden Temple". There's more of a sun-warmed Balearic feel to the shuffling beats, tumbling chords and jangling pianos of Forriner's tasty "Spero", while Yuki Tosaya steals the show with "Acid Dawn Breaks", which is the kind of saucer-eyed, sunrise thriller that was all the range back at the turn of the '90s.

Review: NYC-based Bristol exile Milo Johnson AKA DJ Nature has long enjoyed a good relationship with Futureboogie Recordings, having first provided remix services for the West Country label back in 2013. This, though, is still his first EP for Dave Harvey's imprint. His loose, groovy and jazz-flecked style of deep house naturally comes to the fore on warm and melodious opener "Born Lifted", while the slightly more driving, sample-heavy "My Life" recalls his early '90s work as Nature Boy. "What Isn't" is a dusty deep house producer's take on electro-tinged instrumental hip-hop (reflective of his '80s work as part of Massive Attack's Wild Bunch collective) while "Loving You More" cannily joins the dots between lo-fi deep house, Balearic dreaminess and classic jazz-funk.

Review: Given that he's been involved in shaping the artistic direction of the label from the very start, it seems fitting that graphic designer-turned-producer Christophe should have the honour of delivering Futureboogie's 50th release. There's an argument to say that it's his strongest release to date, too; certainly, the fizzing, saucer-eyed Acid-jack of "Dance Pants" and throbbing, low-slung, late night disco-acid of "Caravanaramabar" come straight from the top drawer. The Bristol-based Welshman showcases his love of dreamy, fluttering slow jams via the drawn-out Balearic climax of "Savanna", before tipping a wink to the twin attractions of acid-flecked Italian dream house and stripped-back electrofunk on high-grade closer "Key Largo".

The versatile producer wastes no time getting stuck in, starting out with the explosive "Orca" which features one of the most amazing arpeggios this side of "I Feel Love". There's more vintage, synth driven disco vibes on "Minke" or "Logmans Break" while the feel good nu-disco vibes of "Pygmy" are reminiscent of modern greats like Jay Shepheard or Milton Jackson.

Review: Australian oddball producer Dreems breaks away from his usual home; Thomas Von Party's Multi Culti imprint, for an appearance on Bristol institution Futureboogie with the Studio Glucose EP, where he collaborates with buddy Jamie Blanco from London. On "Percussive Racing Cars" the pair reference classic Chicago deep house, complete with Juno 106 and 303 basslines but with a modern twist. "Party Mix" goes for some woozy, groovy, tribal tech house geared for the late night or afterhours while "Red Frog, Green Frog" goes for a strange 80s/balearic tinged groove that many other Australian producers in Berlin are doing at present. There's also a brilliant remix of "Percussive Racing Cars" by Israeli man of the moment Moscoman, giving it a dusty and rusty acid house makeover.

Review: Futureboogie's annual Summer Riot EP rarely disappoints. This year's instalment of the multi-artist extravaganza - the fifth in totak - is every bit as essential as its' predecessors. Long time friend of the family Bonar Bradberry steps up first with "Analogue Express", where bubbly synthesizer lead lines rub shoulders with Chicken Lips style bass and rich, life-affirming piano chords. Experienced Italian DJ Rocca fuses brain-melting acid lines, dark electronics and African influences on the wonky "Voodoo", before former Fila Brazillia man Steve Cobby drops a lolloping chunk of audible sunshine in the shape of "Lefthanded Books". Arguably best of all, though, is Field Theory's "Rituals", a swirling fusion of dreamy deep house, mind-altering acid, and warehouse-friendly rhythms.

Review: Crazy P man Jim Baron once more dons his Ron Basejam alter ego, delivering a strong virtual double A-side for Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings. Opener "Time" not only features some decidedly cosmic spoken word vocals from Vern, but was also co-produced by PBR Streetgang man Bonar Bradberry. In typical Baron fashion, the track is a loose, warm and inviting affair that effortlessly blends live instrumentation (guitars, bass, Clavinet) with a rolling dancefloor groove. "The Carrington Spirituals" is an altogether more urgent affair, and sees the experienced producer offering a typically attractive, horn-heavy take on loopy disco-house.

Review: Given their extensive shared musical history and influences, you'd expect this hook-up between former Classic/Music For Freaks types Luke Solomon and Jonny Rock to contain some belting cuts. Predictably, it does. Dancefloor sweatiness is guaranteed from the start, via the undulating, Moroder-inspired bass guitar, spacey electronics, clipped guitars and dense disco percussion of "Luca Frangipan", and its' suitably trippy, more heavily electronic companion Dub. There's a breezier, looser feel to "Groovin' To La", which expertly teases out soulful vocal samples and soaring strings atop a bouncy Italo-disco/deep house/classic disco fusion groove. The accompanying Dub mix is, if anything, even stronger. Sadly, this digital version of the EP doesn't feature DJ Fett Burger & Jayda G's killer remix, so you'll have to buy the 12" to get that.

Review: Ron & Neil is an all-star collaboration between old buddies Jim "Ron Basejam" Baron (Crazy P), and Rack 'N' Ruin boss man Neil Diablo. Pedre Son Aclat marks the project's first appearance, with the three original tracks sitting somewhere between shimmering nu-disco, sparkling powder house, and disco-influenced grooves. The title track sets the tone, layering up colourful synthesizer chords and melodies. While tasty, Man Power's bubbly, Balearic style revision - all analogue synths, cheap drum machine hits and sleazy vocals - is arguably more satisfying. "You Feel It" is a creepy, low-slung deep house/disco hybrid blessed with killer percussive flourishes and a weighty punk funk bassline, while "Tears" is a glassy-eyed fusion of warehouse-friendly electronics and disco-funk hedonism.

Review: Mark E has spent the last few years re-tracing his loopy edit roots with the E Versions project, while exploring Balearic pastures with brother-in-law Nat Woodcock as Project E. Those who've always enjoyed his more peak-time productions will love this new two-tracker for Futureboogie, as it sees him applying his love of loop jams to suit darker, sweatier dancefloors. "Basement Trax 1" sets the tone, looping vintage, Twilo-era organ motifs over a tactile but chugging, nine-minute groove. "Basement Trax 2" is a little more musically expansive, with dreamy chords and similarly ear-catching organ motifs slowly building over a punchy house rhythm and undulating synth bassline.

Birsk - (6:14) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Kilian - (6:09) 116 BPM
Review: Given Futureboogie boss Dave Harvey's notable links to Adriatic festivals (he was previously the musical programmer of Garden, before launching his own Love International shindig at the same site), it's perhaps unsurprising that the label's releases should have a touch of Croatian sunshine about them. This latest EP from Tuff City Kids man Lauer is an excellent example. Both tracks bristle with woozy, sun-kissed positivity, with virtual flipside "Kilian" - all eyes-closed synthesizer melodies, chugging arpeggios and humid beats - sounding like it was tailor-made for sweaty boat parties and tipsy sunrise sessions. "Birsk" is similarly inclined, albeit with a quicker pulse and sounds which drag it further towards shimmering Balearic house territory.

Review: It's some 13 years since Fernando Pulichino made his debut as part of rubbery, dub-disco/deep house fusionists Silver City, and seven since his first solo outing on Redux. Here, he pops up on Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings with more pleasingly dubbed-out disco chuggers and sparkling nu-disco workouts. "Ride On" is classic Fernando, with the Argentine producer expertly combining a trademark punk funk bassline with spiraling synths, fluttering electronics and rolling beats. His electrofunk, Itallo-disco and Balearic influence shines through stronger on the trippy and dubby "Trespassing", while "Mid Decade" is a kind of bubbling, sun-kissed analogue nu-disco jam. There's also a neat bonus in the shape of DJ Nature's rework of "Ride On", which turns Pulichino's original into a woozy, guitar-laden deep house gem.

He impresses from the off, effortlessly fusing classic house vocal samples, rubbery boogie bass and spacey synth flourishes on the superb "One More Button Down". Gerus then doffs a cap to 80s electro and space-funk on the wobbly "Better Sing It To Me First", before charging off on a sparse electrofunk-meets-rolling house tip on the brilliantly flexible "She Rides Shotgun". He argiuably saves the best till last, though, with the Chicken Lips-meets-Serious Intetion style proto house-meets-electro business of "Now Is Gone".

Review: It's been almost a year since the last Futureboogie release, and it was about time the Bristol label landed a new artist on their roster; after all, they're only responsible for bringing out talent such as Julio Bashmore! Although Cassio Kohl surfaced a couple of years ago, he's been quiet on the releasing front, but he's back with three hot 'n' bumpy floor nuggets coated in a house flavour. "Let It Be Me" has a Chicago lick with a bouncy bassline and plenty of sweet atmospherics, while "Hear Me" is funkier with that fuzzy slap bass, and "Come Together" goes for the swing thanks to those skippy percussion stabs and rolling bass shots. Seductive and effective, perfect for the warm up hours.
