Review: Having spent the last few years delivering pleasingly melodious, far-sighted singles on Argot, Skylax, Deepblak and Running Back, Maya Bouldry-Morrison has joined the Honey Soundsystem family. Where Are We Going Is the Brooklyn-based artist's first album since 2013, when she was regarded as one of 100% Silk's most talented producers. As full-length adventures go, it's undeniably enjoyable, with Bouldry-Morrison delivering warm, retro-futurist cuts that cannily combine elements of vintage Chicago deep house and Italian dream house tropes with the breakbeat-driven shuffle of rave-era British dance records and occasional Motor City style flourishes. While there's naturally plenty of club-ready material throughout, it's also the sort of album that you can comfortably listen to in the comfort of your own home.

Review: Maya Bouldry-Morrison's first joined the Honey Soundsystem crew earlier this year via fine full-length Where Are We Going? Here, one of the standout cuts from that set is given a deserved single release. The producer's original version, a rolling, deep space chunk of hypnotic deep house laden with echoing analogue synth lines and drowsy, intergalactic electronics, naturally kicks things off before Dorisburg and Avalon Emerson deliver their own interpretations. The former opts for a darker, early-morning-in-Berlin style take - think bold analogue bass, intricately programmed beats and foreboding aural textures - while the latter gives the cut a more "live" feel via layered new drum hits and oodles of outboard hardware effects.

Review: Julian Smith aka October emerges from the shadows for his first release of the year. The choice of label is an unexpected one, but it makes sense, with Honey putting out Eps by left of centre artists like Octo Octa and Vin Sol in recent years. Certainly, Pay Day follows an unpredictable path. "Tuesday" is a low-slung, reverb-heavy workout, punctuated by snappy drums and spaced out effects - like Chicken Lips on steroids. On the title track, Smith changes tact to deliver an abrasive, visceral stomper, led by wild bleeps and noisy, crashing drums. "Urgency" sees him flirt with the kind of menacing ebm sound that prevailed on his Black Body Radiation album, while he closes out this remarkable EP with the swampy abstractions of "Rent".

Review: To kick-start their 2018 release programme, the Honey Soundsystem-helmed HNYTRX label serves up a four-way celebration of sweaty dancefloor madness. Sepehr kicks things off with the muscular, fuzzy and thrillingly bass-heavy deep house bump of "I Just", while Bergqvist reaches for the jazzy keys, off-kilter machine beats and restless disco beats on the quirkier but no less throbbing "Trippin". The celebrated San Francisco crew's love of freestyle and Italo-disco is indulged via the sparkling synth lines, bustling electro beats and rising acid motifs of Morven Son's standout "Looking Back", before Lunate closes proceedings with a sublime slice of dreamy, head-in-the-clouds deep house bliss entitled "Loom". With its incessant, acid-fuelled bassline and bongo-riffic rhythmic swing, it may be the highlight of a very fine EP.

Review: Vin Sol's relationship with Honey Soundsystem goes back a long way, which is why the San Fran label has said that they subjected him to a more rigorous A&R process than other artist on their label. According to Honey Soundsystem, they wanted to ensure that the 'marriage was right' when it came to releasing material. Certainly, this four-track is proof that their pernickety attitude paid off. The title track is a deep, hypnotic techno track, while "Electrical Storms" sees him delve into darker territories thanks to its eerie chords. On the linear "Patronize", he introduces eerie bleeps and rasping percussion, while the suggestively named "Bondage Taped" closes the release with a grimy, jacking groove.
