Mi Casa Samba (Octo Octa remix) - (6:59) 127 BPM
Faith (Vito & Druzzi remix) - (9:24) 121 BPM
Words (Cooper Saver & Turbotito remix) - (6:35) 116 BPM Hot
Faith (Lemonade remix) - (7:10) 120 BPM
Review: New York City deep house hotshot and Let's Play House head honcho Jacques Renault is back with some remixes from his recent Zentrum LP. Starting out with the tremendously dark and soulful epic "Mi Casa Samba (Octo Octa remix)", Vito & Druzzi get stuck into "Faith" giving it an uplifting soulful house makeover; think Body & Soul NYC. "Words (Cooper Saver & Turbotito remix)" goes for more of a groovy nu-disco route, leading in nicely to another remix of "Faith" only this time by Lemonade, who gives it some smooth Max D style deep house flavour for summertime open air terrace party vibes.

Runaway - "Don't Let Go" - (7:10) 109 BPM Hot
Soft Rocks - "Slap My Stick" - (4:08) 108 BPM
Review: We've come accustomed to Let's Play House delivering EPs of brand new house music. Here, the Brooklyn imprint flips the script, instead serving up a pair of re-edits from two of the best in the business. First label co-founder Jacques Renault joins forces with Marcos Cabral as Runaway for the first time in five years. Their contribution to the EP, "Don't Let Go", is a gently pulsating chunk of wide-eyed sunrise disco ecstasy; a mid-tempo shuffler full of loved-up vocals and rising orchestration underpinned by a druggy, Italo-disco style groove. Arguably even better is Soft Rocks' re-edit, 'Slap My Stick", a tasty rearrangement of a P-funk era electro jam laden with ace slap bass and kaleidoscopic synth flourishes.

House Of Spirits - "Holding On" (Jacques Renault remix) - (8:37) 112 BPM
Jacques Renault - "Words" (Tom Noble remix) - (6:17) 120 BPM Hot
Review: For those of you who missed out on Let's Play Houses' super-rare Record Store Day 10" disco swap-over, don't fear - the digital version's now here! Featuring the talents of Jacques Renault and House of Spirits (aka Tom Noble), we first encounter the former remixing the latter's "Holding On" (originally released on Tim Sweeney's Beats in Space label). It's a streamlined disco odyssey that boasts a thumb-dislocating slap bass line to die for. Next Noble tackle's a Renault album cut, "Words", turning it into six minutes of dreamy, crystalline synth joy with a serious case of the Copa Cabanas. Boom!

Faith (Nicholas remix) - (6:43) 120 BPM
Redlight Rubber (Massimiliano Pagliara remix) - (8:35) 123 BPM
Mi Casa Samba (Max McFerren remix) - (5:32) 120 BPM
Review: On this intriguing package, Jacques Renault has signed up a quartet of like-minded party-starters to remix tracks from his 2015 debut album, Zentrum. Borrowed Identity kicks things off with a bluesy, Rhodes-heavy deep house rendition of "Faith", before classic U.S house revivalist Nicholas channels the spirits of Bobby Konders and Chez Damier on his deep, dreamy and intoxicating rework of the same track. Massimiliano Pagliara impresses with a bouncy, synth-laden disco-house interpretation of "Redlight Rubber" full of clipped guitars and spine-tingling vocal samples, before Max McFerren steals the show with a heady, rave-influenced breakbeat-house take on the Latin-influenced "Mi Casa Samba".

LK Tape Track (original mix) - (4:56) 123 BPM
Played by: Buzz Compass, Huerta
Review: There were slim pickings in 2016 for fans of Steve Huerta. After a prolific few years, the Los Angeles-based producer seemed to take a step back, releasing just one 12" single in 12 months. Happily, LK Tapes - his first outing on Brooklyn's Let's Play House - was worth the wait. Rich, melodious, woozy and analogue-rich, its' four loved-up tracks are amongst the producer's best work to date. Highlights are plentiful, from the woozy, sunset-friendly chords, glistening melodies and Larry Heard bottom-end of "LK Tape Track" and hazy, toaster-warm shuffle of "Lindos", to the fuzzy analogue beats, tactile chords and dream house sensibilities of sublime opener "Umbanda".

MDK - (4:39) 125 BPM
Vitamin Loops - (5:23) 122 BPM
Nothing To Worry About - (6:28) 121 BPM Hot
Review: If you're wondering who is behind the previously unheard J&AG project, we can confirm that it's the work of Moda Music chiefs Jaymo and Andy George. Listening to the EP, it's clear why they wanted a different alias for the project; each of the four sample-rich house workouts is altogether dustier, dreamier and more disco-fied than their usual collaborative work. In terms of highlights, we'd like to point you towards the Tiger and Woods style loop-funk brilliance of "Vitamin Loops", the early Daft Punk flavours of "MDK" and the woozy, late night loops of filter disco opener "Girl". That said, the EP's other track, closer "Nothing To Worry About", is almost as good as its' celebrated companions.

Jacques Renault - "Choo Choo Beat" - (4:11) 121 BPM
Daniel T - "Master Plan" - (3:19) 118 BPM Hot
Review: On Let's Play House's latest floor-slaying missive, label co-founder Jacques Renault shares top billing with Cosmic Kids member Daniel Terndrup. Both are in full-on re-edit mode, with Renault laying down a marker via the rubbery slap bass, relentless cowbells and urgent disco-funk grooves of virtual A-side "Choo-Choo Beat". Renault does a good job in emphasizing various instrumental elements in turn, working through short but sweet percussion, synthesizer and guitar solos. Terndrup flips the script with "Master Plan", expertly cutting up and rearranging a thoroughly obscure electro jam rich in body popping drum machine hits, squeezable synth-bass and quirky, child-like vocals.

I Got A Good Idea - (6:22) 125 BPM
Smoke That Shit - (7:31) 116 BPM Hot
Why Does It Flow? - (5:33) 120 BPM
Review: Trey is a new pseudonym for a familiar face, namely former 1080p, Shoot The Lobster and Allergy Season artist Max McFerren. On this first outing for Let's Play House's "LPT White" series, he largely eschews the rave-inspired breakbeats and horizontal electronics that have marked out many of his previous releases, instead emphasizing the loved-up musical elements his usually layers upon them. So, we get a jazzy chunk of thrillingly vibrant retro-futurist Balearic house ("Why Does It Flow"), a wild and bustling, acid-fired floor-filler ("Smoke That Shit", the track closest to his previous output) and the enveloping warmth, heavyweight drums and sun-kissed early morning beauty of standout "I Got a Good Idea" (check, in particular, the life-affirming brilliance of McFerren's jazz guitar solos).

Jacques Renault - "Where Do We Go?" (All Night edit) - (6:45) 115 BPM Hot
Mr Guy - "Luv Magic" - (6:23) 98 BPM

Elvin Tibideaux - "Just Give Me Joy" - (7:29) 125 BPM
Private Panther - "Desire" - (5:52) 121 BPM
Review: The Let's Play House White label is up and running with this disco-not-disco collaborative EP, and we have to say that we're digging each one of these five floor-melters. Badman Jacques Renault sets the gears in motion with the house-powered "Where Do We Go", all pianos and rolling beats, followed by Mr Guy and the slow, sample-heavy chugger called "Luv Magic" - check that bass! Jesse Rudoy leans to an ore string-led disco swagger with "What U Do", "Just Give Me Joy" by Elvin Tibideux is a heavy disco slinger with a groove that you could just leave on repeat for eternity, and Private Panther's "Desire" is the perfect blend between old and new thanks to its dusty house beats and winding guitar loops. Recommended and not to be underestimated!

Klubbhuset - "Omedelbar Karlek" - (7:03) 120 BPM
Lovers - "Fresh 'N' Hot" - (5:40) 120 BPM
Jacques Renault - "Top Billin'" - (5:02) 116 BPM Hot
Review: There's no grand concept behind the latest all-star EP from Brooklyn's Let's Play House, other than a clear desire to create pandemonium out on the dancefloor. All four tracks have "peak-time anthem" written all over them, from the opening bump of Keita Sano's "Long Run (Part 3") - a brilliant, tooled-up revision of a classic disco anthem - to the ultra-jiggy hip-house madness of Jacques Renault's "Top Billin", which sounds tailor made for over-excited Adriatic boat parties and afternoon festival rinse-outs. In between, you'll find the undulating, bass-heavy grooves and delay-laden soul samples of Klubbhuset's "Omedelbar Karlek" and the swirling disco-house grandiosity of Lovers' "Fresh 'N' Hot". To quote a much-used cliche: this is all killer, no filler.

Old Man In Love (version) - (5:46) 123 BPM
My Business - (5:47) 123 BPM
Review: For their latest release, Brooklyn's Let's Play House crew has looked far beyond the Five Boroughs, securing a first label release from Uncanny Valley regular Jacob Korn. The Dresden producer predictably hits his stride immediately, wrapping wonky, bass-heavy acid lines around rock solid kick drums and open cymbals on throbbing opener "Wrong Way". There's an altogether looser, sweeter feel about "Old Man in Love", with Korn successfully employing glistening jazz guitar motifs, jaunty piano riffs and all manner of hazy vocal samples. The "Version" mix of the same track is a more stripped-back and bass-heavy, Dub style revision, while closer "My Business" sounds like futurist Detroit techno pitched down and fused with early Italian dream house, which is no bad thing in our book.

In The Street (Jacques Renault BK club mix) - (5:20) 120 BPM
In The Street (Jacques Renault Piano mix) - (5:40) 120 BPM
Review: Making their first appearance here, Chocki Hookon sounds like someone who has been making weapons grade house jams for more than five minutes. Considering their first outing in via Let's Play House, they have more than stepped up to the plate with the assured piano house blast of "In The Street" coming on like an early 90s classic. "Random Madness" is an altogether different kind of beast, dripping with rambunctious synth lines and late night heat of the finest kind. Jacques Renault is then on hand to deliver a pair of remixes of "In The Street", and in both instances the tone is bright and sprightly with plenty of punch for the peak time dance.

Review: Following this year's release of Pacific Coliseum's third LP, How's Life, Slim Steve's label debut with the I Do It EP and two Westcoast Goddess titles, Let's Play House caps of a fine year for the empty dancefloors out there with Jacque'd Toolbox - a super combi between 'the' Gerd Janson and New York's Jacques Renault! Throwing into the mix all matter of edits and cutting techniques to disco, pop, electro and house music, the pair throw down hard when giving the free world a dose of what the really want; be it the stringed, pumping heaviness of a piano-ladened "Never Saw Never" or the rave-infused happy house of "Movin' Kinda Screwy". Find some '80s breakbeat electro in the shoulder pad pop of "One More Slice" next to the space pongs and filter loop tropics of "One More Slam" and percussive disco banger of "Jus Wanna Party". Disco, check!

BK Slice (Spencer Parker Works Harder mix) - (7:14) 125 BPM
Let Me Jacq (Tee Mango remix) - (7:28) 121 BPM
Review: This rather fine four-tracker sees a quality cast of high-profile underground heroes rework tracks from Jacques Renault's rather good 2018 album "BK Club Beats, Breaks & Versions". DJ Boring gets things going with a deliciously loved-up and glassy-eyed take of "Don't Wanna Stop" full of bubbly synth lines and foreboding bass, while Spencer Parker re-invents "BK Slice" is a jacking chunk of cut-up disco house insanity. M.I.A.L's version of "Make Me Feel Good" expertly fuses dreamy deep house and punchy club electro, while Tee Mango's revision of "Let Me Jacq" joins the dots between relaxed deep house, future boogie and eyes-closed jazz-funk electric piano solos.

Jacques Renault - "Donau Beach" - (5:55) 115 BPM
Lovers - "Sweetest Thing" (Jacques Renault BK Club version) - (5:09) 116 BPM
Review: First released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2019, "BK RSD" gathers together some previously hard to find Jacques Renault remixes on one must-have release. Check first Renault's revision of Philip Budny's "Parprocie", a driving fusion of non-stop deep house drums, squelchy acid bass and dreamy nu-disco synths, before marveling at the life-affirming rush of the producer's Italo-disco inspired re-make of Brian Ring's "Big Town Boy, Small Town Dreams". Arguably most impressive, though, is his deep, hypnotic and groovy revision of "Sweet Thing" by Lovers. The package also includes an unexpected bonus in the shape of Renault original "Donau Beach", a chunky, breakbeat-driven affair rich in exotic vocal samples, funky bass and glassy-eyed chords.

Laroze - "You Inspired Me" - (4:46) 135 BPM
Keita Sano - "Party VIbes" - (7:45) 124 BPM
Review: As you'd expect, there's plenty to set the pulse racing on the latest multi-artist edition of Let's Play House's "LPH White" series. Label co-founder Jacques Renault sets the tone via the lolloping, bass-heavy filter-house bump of "No Strings Attached", where swirling orchestration gently rises to prominence over a bustling groove, before Kirsty Harper whips out her Roland TB-303 and lays down some seriously sleazy, Phuture style acid-jack. Laroze's "You Inspired Me" is a throbbing, filter-sporting romp through disco-house territory enlivened greatly by layered drums, while Keita Sano's "Party Vibes" successfully manipulates some superb samples in cahoots with a typically weighty and thickset house groove.

Review: Some seven years after dropping his debut solo single - an inspired collection of re-edits for the acclaimed RVNG of the NRDS series - Jacques Renault releases his debut album. Appearing on the Let's Play House label he runs with pal Nik Mercer, Zentrum is an eclectic, anything-goes affair, with an impressive cast of collaborators (The Emperor Machine, Luke Jenner and former Runaway production partner Marcos Cabral included) swinging by to lend a hand. As you might expect, it touches on many of his influences - drowsy leftfield disco, leftfield funk, eccentric broken beats, strobe-lit basement jams, wonky acid house (the rather brilliant "Touch You"), African rhythms, and vintage US garage amongst them - whilst retaining a distinctive voice throughout. Given the obvious eclecticism, it takes a few listens to really sink in, but it's certainly worth the effort; closer "Faith", featuring Karl Dixon, is particularly rewarding.

Review: Detroit/Dam Swindle's Lars Dales teams up once more with Germany's Lorenz Rhodes as Sound Support for this five-tracker on Let's Play House. Opener 'Mehari' is a lightly Afro-flavoured house workout, but the party only really gets started when the killer squelch bassline on 'Man Moving Arms' makes itself known. We're then treated to deep house jam 'Arigator' and the spaced-out 1:29 interlude that is 'Miller's Planet', before the EP's closed out by the Italo-inspired 'Detox Your Feelings', which is easily the EP's most uptempo and driving cut and sports some fine acidic bleepery - though 'Man Moving Arms' remains the standout.

Review: You can call this an EP or an album as you see fit; either way, 'LPHLXXX' finds Brooklyn-based Jacques Renault in nostalgic mood, as he serves up seven tracks on his own Let's Play House label that pay homage to house and disco sounds of yore. It's hard to put the needle down without stumbling across a much-loved hook or familiar vocal sample, though the album's at its best when Renault steps away from the sampler and gets down and dirty in his own right, notably on intense, sweaty, sax-tastic funker 'The People Groove'. 'Say You', which has a distinctly Crown Heights Affair-ish feel, would also be a good place to start.

Review: For his third album, coming once again on his own Brooklyn-based Let's Play House imprint, Jacques Renault has decided to flip the script, eschewing the standard album format completely and instead presenting us with what are essentially 23 DJ tools, all hovering around the one- or 1.5-minute mark, plus a couple of 15-minute minimixes thereof ('Sunny Side' and 'Sandy Side'). As such, home listening appeal may be rather limited but with the 23 tracks spanning a range of house, disco and funk moods, creative jocks in need of some fresh loops 'n' grooves for their sets will find much useful ammo here.

Review: Here's something to genuinely set the pulse racing: a new set of remixes of Saidera's gorgeously sunny, samba soaked 'Deixa Tudo Fluir' from Ray Mang, a producer who could turn almost anything into dancefloor gold. His EP opening 'Remix' sounds like a carnival anthem in waiting: a gorgeous, bounce-along slab of samba-house laden with summery Portuguese vocals, jangling guitars, South American percussion and effects-laden flute solos. It comes accompanied by an instrumental and chopped-down radio edit, plus the 'Sambatone Beats' version - a brilliant DJ tool that adds stabbing analogue bass to layered samba band drums and loose-limbed Latin percussion hits.

Review: Jacques Renault's latest album, Sky Islands, contained some genuinely killer cuts, though its non-stop, mixtape-style construction meant digital DJs couldn't get their hands on them. This six-track missive puts the record straight, with Renault offering up a quintet of short, sharp, sample-heavy workouts - most of which blend heavy beats and sweat-soaked disco loops - plus one lengthier jam, 'Larry Lenore'. This is the most musically complex and hard-to-pigeonhole of the lot, with the New York producer adding druggy aural textures, eyes-closed vocal snippets and throbbing, arpeggio-style bass to a breathless beat full of heavy kick-drums and hissing ride cymbals.

Review: The last time Better Listen associate Sune appeared on Let's Play House, back in the autumn of 2019, it was with a superb EP of ultra-warm, sun-kissed deep house brilliance. Everything is Fine, the producer's debut album, expands on this ear-pleasing blueprint, adding sparkling and colourful nods towards deep house, Dam Funk, French Touch style disco-house, jazz-funk and dusty downtempo grooves. It's undoubtedly a recipe for success, with the LP's multiple highlights including the jazzy, low-slung goodness of 'I Didn't Quite Catch That', the vintage jazz-house/deep house fusion of 'Fancy Fa?ade', the sparkling and excitable 'Humble' and the immersive sci-fi house sounds of 'Cloud Therapy'.

Review: Jacques' back! After outings on Shall Not Fade, Take Away and Barefoot Beats, Let's Play House co-founder Jacques Renault returns to the imprint with a predictably solid six-tracker rich in club-ready jams that touch on a number of tempos and styles. Slo-mo disco heads will love the sample-heavy, slap-bass-propelled chug of 'Jam On It', while 'Lookout Rhythm' offers a more intense, percussion-rich and peak-time-ready take on low-slung disco-house. The edit-not-edit approach continues on the hazy and driving 'Play That Thing', while 'Torrid Drums' is deep, jacking acid house with a gloriously melodic twist. 'Got That Boing' is sweaty, breathless and sleazy, while closing cut 'High' is sparkling, lightly modified take on a piano-rich boogie gem.

Review: Let's Play House has described this debut EP from Saidera, a trio comprising former Lemonade man Alex Pasternak, Avan Lava's Mike Cheever and samba school leader Osvaldo 'Vadinho' Luiz Freire de Araujo, as "a big move in a new direction" for the long-established Brooklyn label. It genuinely is, but one that we wholeheartedly recommend checking. Title track 'Deixa Tudo Fluir' is genuinely gorgeous, summery and mood-ehancing - all cheery Portuguese vocals, sun-kissed guitars, warming nu-disco synths and huggable samba grooves - while 'Sincronicidade' delivers a slower but no less sunny fusion of samba-soaked musical elements with a glassy-eyed twist. Guerrinha's remix of 'Deixa Tudo Fluir', which boasts denser beats and expressive, David Cole style house piano solos, is also extremely impressive.

Review: Back in February, Makez made the move from Heist Recordings to Let's Play House, bringing with him the Elevation EP, which we dubbed his "strongest EP to date". This timely follow-up for the Brooklyn-based imprint is equally strong. He begins by combining gently tropical drums, kaleidoscopic synths and languid melodic refrains on mid-tempo number 'Blue Island', before upping the tempo and reaching for rubbery disco bass on the equally picturesque 'Red Island'. Title track 'Levitation' is a glorious chunk of Afro-funk/deep house fusion, 'More Vision' is a dense and hallucinatory slab of feverish house hypnotism, and 'If We Were Children (Makez Rework)' is a bouncy disco-house number full of cut-glass strings and jammed-out electric piano riffs.

Review: Westcoast Goddess's previous appearance on Let's Play House is still stuck in our heads months after it was released, so hopes are naturally high for her second EP on the Brooklyn-based imprint. In her now traditional style, opener "Strawberry Infiniti" is wonderfully warm, positive and melodious - a rolling ride through deep and dreamy, sunrise-ready piano house that comes complete with a bassline so tactile you might want to hug it. "Fruity Loop" is another rush-inducing slab of aural dancefloor colour, while "Like A Benediction" is a similarly kaleidoscopic chunk of Balearic boogie cheeriness. As for "Stay On My Mind", it's almost overwhelming giddy in its' smiling, rave-ready sunniness.

Review: This fine EP marks sometime X-Kalay and Cactus Traxx artist Slim Steve's firstb appearance on Brooklyn-based Let's Play House. Opener "I Do It" is delicious, colourful and loved-up, sitting somewhere between the glassy-eyed sunrise pleasure of Italian Dream House, the acid-fired jack of Chicago house and the organ-rich deep house associated with New Jersey at the turn of the 90s. "Do It" is a more trance-inducing and rushing take on the same idea - think rising and falling synth bass, psychedelic flashes and emotive chord sequences - while "B3" is a bumpin', organ-rich romp through mid-80s US garage territory. That track is given the remix treatment by Baltra, who brilliantly re-imagines it as a breakbeat-driven fusion of dreamy deep house and NJ garage goodness.

Review: Over the last few years, Berlin-based Westcoast Goddess has released some of the most colourful, joyous and life-affirming dancefloor music around. Here the publicity-shy, Berlin-based artist makes her first appearance on Let's Play House with an EP packed to the rafters with memorably bright and breezy, synth-heavy gems. For proof, check the tactile deep house sunniness of opener "The Inner Snoopy", where dreamy chords, huggable riffs and tumbling lead lines dance around a chunky, turn-of-the-90s groove, or the giddy synth-pop/nu-disco/acid house fusion of "Limelight Garden". Elsewhere, Splitradix hook-up "Beach Noir" is a curious and quirky mixture of squelchy acid lines, grandiose sci-fi chords and rushing synth melodies, while "Murder At Passion Cove" is a veritable piano house stomper like none you've heard before.

Review: Having previously operated exclusively on Heist Recordings, Makez has decided to mix things up. "Elevation" marks the producer's first outing on long-running Brooklyn imprint Let's Play House; what's more, it could well be his strongest EP to date. He begins in confident fashion via the starry but bumpin' deep house positivity of "Melting" - all sustained electric piano chords, slap-bass, glassy-eyed pads and whispered vocal samples - before exploring even more melodic and dreamy territory on "Elevation". The headline attraction though is probably Tone Adjustment collaboration "Merlot", which is available in two distinctive forms. The original mix sees the pair smother swinging jazz-house beats and squelchy jazz-funk bass in excitable piano solos, while the accompanying "Basement Dub" is a piano-laden exercise in muscular late night bump.

Review: The latest volume in Let's Play House's LPH White series offers up an EP of tracks jointly produced by Whiskey Disco big cheese Sleazy McQueen and sometime Bedrock, Large Records and Little Creatures regular Terry Grant. It's a pleasingly diverse selection too, with the pair giddily flitting between thickset, arpeggio-driven goodtime grooves (the electric piano solos, subtle disco samples and fireside warmth of "Daikaya"), throbbing peak-time nu-disco ("Floating On Air", with its druggy, non-stop bass, vocoder vocals and undulating lead lines) and Stardust-esque French Touch revivalism ("Love Ripple"). Arguably best of all though are the accompanying remixes of "Daikaya" by Chateau Flight's Gilb'R, who first re-imagines the track as a deep space analogue house jam (his "Main Mix") before going all dubbed-out, hypnotic and percussive (the similarly good "Stripped Mix").

Review: Unlike Green Velvet or DJ Rush, DJ Mountain Dad (AKA Lobster Theremin boss Jimmy Asquith) doesn't come from Chicago. But just like those two Windy City legends, he's certainly got the knack of blending house, techno and juke/ghetto-tech into one hard-driving, genre-blurring dancefloor concoction, as is evidenced here by 'Shook Goat' and 'Pio Pio'. We then head into slightly more leftfield/experimental techno territory for 'Step On The Edge', before 'Piano Dream (Heaven On Earth Mix)' plays us out with an old school Ibiza piano riff turned up to 11 and underpinned by hard, pounding 4/4s.

Review: Let's Play House have not said much about Eluize, the artist behind their latest EP, but we can confirm that the mysterious producer has hit the spot. Opener "She Only Counts To Eight" is addictive an intoxicating - an undulating, synthesizer-heavy affair that sits somewhere between druggy deep house and the kind of psychedelic, Middle Eastern-inspired chugging nu-disco more associated with the Disco Halal imprint. The more tech-tinged and melodious "Be Easy" is similarly inclined and "Apart" is a feverish, acid-fired affair. "Illuminated" comes in two different forms: an original mix that updates Italian dream house for a new era and a 39 second spoken word DJ tool. There are two takes on "Morning", too: a hybrid Italo-disco/piano-sporting deep house club cut and a beat free "Lonely Melody" mix.

There's not enough space to detail all six tracks, so instead we'll point you in the direction of some undisputed highlights. Check first the classic-sounding U.S deep house haziness of "Oh, Well (featuring Vitamin D)", where eyes-closed soulful house vocal samples rise above sumptuous chords and rubbery analogue bass, before wallowing in the jazzy, off-beat lusciousness of both "Fikpaus" and quality EP opener "Jazzmelakoli". The rest of the EP lives up to these dizzy heights - especially the impeccable, classic-sampling goodness of "Moovin" - so we'd recommend buying it post-haste.

Review: Davide Disanto - that's St David to you and me - completes his trio of releases on Let's Play House with an effervescent trip into what the Brooklyn label calls "90s throwback territory". In effect, that means swirling, filter-sporting disco-house. Opener "Sexy Funk '98", for example, layers a bustling, DJ Sneak style groove with rugged and raunchy sections from an electrically charged disco-funk workout, while the insanely bass-heavy "I Got The Music" is a maelstrom of hold-and-release disco-house euphoria. The fun continues on chunky and sweet stomper "When You Move" and the heady late night hustle of "The Connection", which has a hazier and much more locked-in feel than the EP's other tracks.

Review: Armless Kid's previous releases have been "must-check" affairs so it's little surprise to find that his third single of 2019 is another quality collection of cuts. He begins in confident fashion via the brilliantly mangled samples and joyously bouncy beats of "Hardos Sampling", while "Sense of Love" is a kaleidoscopic fusion of shimmering, future R&B style synths, psychedelic acid lines and snappy, snare-heavy club beats. Black Loops provides two reworks of that cut: a "1am Mix" the re-wires it as a warming slab of two-step/deep house fusion and a more driving and hypnotic "6am Mix". Arguably best of all, though, is "Dans Le Living Room", a chunky and sub-heavy slab of heady earning morning deep house for those that like to get locked into the groove.

James "Harri" Harrigan has been a Sub Club resident for well over three decades now, while 34 year-old Max Raskin is a Scottish actor and music maker who has been a familiar face on the Glasgow scene for some time. There's naturally plenty to set the pulse racing on "Wild Combination", from the darting synths, good-time vocal samples and driving grooves of opener "Lampaholics", to the spiraling and mind-altering, arpeggio-fired disco-house throb of "Le Stoat" and the spiraling synthesizer motifs of the amusingly titled "Happy Bovril". Digital bonus "Bassline", where fizzing electronics and disco string samples cluster around a typically low-slung groove, is also rather impressive.

Review: Parisian producer Clement Mallein has yet to achieve much in the way of coverage or hype, but his previous releases - especially those on In The Box and LaGaffe Tales - have all been excellent. Debut album "Daze Album" is every bit as impressive, with the In Any Case Records co-founder moving away from the DJ Deep/Three Chairs inspired deep house dustiness of old towards a sound clearly inspired by the likes of Young Marco and, perhaps more pertinently, fellow Paris resident D.K. That means tropical drum machine rhythms, breezy 1980s new age synthesizer lines, ultra-Balearic chords, extended ambient intros and an overriding sense of rushing sunrise positivity.

Opening up the release with "Cdr", where he lays down fluid, acid-led melodies over a jacking groove, it's clear that Kandinski is steeped in the electronic machine music of Detroit and Chicago. The title track, with its purring bass and high-frequency tones, follows in a similar vein, and positions him in a similar space to vintage UR. "Ophelia" is a more pacey take on the same approach - its melodic licks even come close to those on Hi Tech Jazz - while "Disk Driver" rounds off this impressive EP in tracky mode.

The EP starts in reflective mode with the melancholic chimes and electro drums of "As Long As There's Sunset", while the title track is a lush techno arrangement, underscored by steely drums and redolent of early Morgan Geist. While he plunges down a rolling, filtered wormhole for "Delusions Of Grandeur", where the central electronic riffs are looped to infinity, this is primarily a deep release, and "50 AM" is a rolling, hypnotic slice of Detroit-inspired techno that is as sublime as it is effective.

Chief amongst these is title track "Sommambulism", where chiming synthesizer melodies, dreamy chords and beautifully opaque electronics weave their way in and out of a chunky, analogue-rich deep house groove. "Pypes" is similarly breezy, picturesque and positive, while "It's Different" sees Budny focusing more on the comforting combination of drifting, spacey chords and chunky, thickset drums. To round off a fine EP he offers up the tech-tinged, sunrise-ready swirl of "Paprocie", where more intergalactic synthesizer sounds seemingly float above clicking drums and a fantastic analogue bassline.
