Review: Adesse Versions is undoubtedly a canny fella. Few others would have thought have re-casting Yardborough & Peoples' "Don't Stop The Music" is a sweaty acid jam, but that's exactly what he's done here. It sounds like he's replayed the bassline on a TB-303, accompanying it with clattering drum machine percussion, wonky acid lines and a plethora of delay-laden vocal samples. It's a simple idea, brilliantly executed. Elsewhere, he cuts up a well-known, disco-era soul groover and turns it into a chunky house loop-jam ("Slide"), before beefing up the beats and reaching for the TB-303 once more on disco-acid stomper "Kameleon". File under: guaranteed party-starters

Review: Autofac is a fresh collaboration between DFA Records regulars Juan MacLean and Marcus Lambkin AKA Shit Robot, two producers who know a thing or two about delivering inspired dancefloor jams. The four tracks here naturally tend towards the club-friendly, veering from the mind-altering acid jack (and spoken word vocals) of "Souls On Ice", to the loose, disco-influenced house beats and minor key melodies of fine closer "The Witch". In between, you'll find the trippy deep house shuffle of "Mood Shaker" - all toasty, dub-infused stabs and meandering chords - and the bouncy, sweat-soaked late night New York house sleaze of "The Vessel". In other words, it's a rock-solid EP of properly playable fare.

Review: The latest missive from Nik Mercer and Jacques Renault's prolific Let's Play House imprint comes from the similarly hard-working Baldo. The Barcelona-based producer has enjoyed a productive 2016, delivering well-regarded EPs on Neovinyl Recordings and Good Ratio Music. There's naturally much to admire on the simply titled W, which blends swirling deep house chords and glistening melodies, with the unmistakable sound of the Roland TB-303. The latter's near psychedelic lines make regular appearances throughout the EP, underpinning the near Balearic swell of "Count Zero", combining well with the intergalactic chords of "Flirty", and bubbling away seductively on saucer-eyed standout "Miscellaneous".

Review: Freiburg's Borrowed Identity has been one of the busiest producers of 2015, and arguably also one of the most consistent. This 12" for Let's Play House offshoot LPH White marks his fifth (and presumably final) EP of the year, and contains six bumpin', no-nonsense house workouts to entertain festive floors. He begins by joining forces with regular collaborator Mechanical Soul Brother on the low-slung, Junior Vasquez-influenced late night bump of "Vogue", before smothering a thickset groove with rich Rhodes chords and bluesy vocal samples on "Feelings For You". Other highlights include the stompin', piano-heavy goodness of "Tell Me Why", the thumping late night techno of "Red Acid Clouds", and the locked-in, late night basement throb of "Into The Blue".

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: Munich-based Coeo endured a slow start to their career, with a two-year gap between their 2012 debut on Globelle, and their recent comeback on DaBit. Here they pop up on Brooklyn's Let's Play House imprint with a fine collection of warm, rolling and unfussy US house-influenced tracks. "Be" boasts the hazy swing and cut-up vocal stabs of classic US garage, while "Thinkin' About You" adds some sleazy sax samples and long, drawn out strings to a classic New Jersey rhythm. The title track is a little more driving and energetic, but still retains the Rhodes-powered warmth of Coeo's trademark sound. The package also includes a decent - and rather smooth - Revenge dub of the title track, and "Good Love", a bustling, digital-only bonus cut.

Review: Drop The Lime's housier project is enjoying some renewed attention from a producer more commonly enamoured with delivering tear-out hype-up electro business, although in this EP for Let's Play House you can still hear plenty of full-fat production tendencies working their way into the Curses sound. "Back in the Dark" may shuffle with a New York urgency, but there's a big-room European feel to the nagging synth stabs at the core of the track. Still it's a far more measured affair compared to the lairy bass sludge and manic bleep action of Naum Gabo's remix of the track. "Eyes On You" however shows a more sensitive side with its brushed drums and spooky keys, bringing some balance to the EP without diluting the wild ideas.

Review: Melbourne-based deep house stalwart Mic Newman has enjoyed a relatively quiet year under his Fantastic Man alias, with just the odd release to keep fans happy. He's clearly been saving his best till last, though, because this EP for Let's Play House (his second for the Brooklyn-based imprint) is top drawer. It's hard to pick highlights, with all four tracks delivering a delicious blend of evocative melodies, tumbling grooves and sympathetic chords. The decidedly melancholic Serotonin-release of "Zero" is probably the pick, though lead track "Heartbreaker" - as emotion-rich and vulnerable as the title suggests - being close behind. The deeper, spookier "Keep Out" - think Larry Heard meets Young Marco - is excellent, too, as is Suzanne Kraft's spacier, dubbier, analogue-heavy remix.

Review: Felix Dickinson and Jaime Read are old sparring partners, having previously joined forces for releases on 2MR and Is It Balearic?. This first collaborative outing of 2016 sees them flexing their retro-futurist muscles for Let's Play House. "Rarely On A Tuesday" sits somewhere between early '80s New York proto-house, early Chicago jack and later acid, with cosmic electronics and delay-laden synths riding a killer groove. They do a passable impression of early Orbital on the deeper, early '90s flex of "Mistaken Identity", before joining the dots between Chicken Lips, Mark Seven and Eric Duncan on the late night sweetness of "Lucky For Some". All three tracks are sparse, rubbery, and impressively floor-friendly.

Review: Melbourne native Griffin James has been busy over the past few years, snapping up releases on Sleazy Beats, Join The Dots, Drumpoet Community and Fina in a whirlwind of contemporary deep house. As such it makes sense to see him sliding over to Let's Play House for another bout, leading in with the riotous party atmosphere of "Hezbolla". It comes on like the more flamboyant end of Moodymann's layering techniques, all shot through with a hooky central drum that wanders through a range of pitches. "Vibrations" gets into a more soulful kind of snag, all fragile beats that could crumple at any second and heartfelt key loops. "Hezbongobongo" is a more outwardly metallic edit that lets the drums shine through without the heated social ambience for those who like their beats with clarity.

Review: Having carved out a sturdy reputation for classily executed deep house, Francis Inferno Orchestra returns to Let's Play House to offer last year's "Hezbollah" up to the reliable but somewhat enigmatic Carter Brothers. The original track gets looped up and stretched out in a restrained yet unrelenting cycle of addictive piano chords and pattering disco drums, shot through with a hint of psychedelia for good measure. Aside from that immersive DJ friendly cut, there are three locked grooves of varying intensity to choose from, ranging from a goofy techno throwdown to an eerie pad loop if you want to add a little spice to your mix.

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!

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".

Review: By their standards, Jack Fell Down - AKA producers James Vickers and Tony Craig - had a fairly quiet 2014, with an acclaimed EP on Quintessentials their only release of note. Here, they kick-start 2015 with an expansive EP for Jacques Renault and Nik Mercer's Let's Play House imprint. Despite the intergalactic melodies and acid-flecked funk of "Space Junk", it's a largely heads-down, late night affair, with the duo variously offering up clanking rhythms and wonky electronics ("Overrated"), moody tech-house ("Epiphany") and thunderous, dub influenced after-party fare ("Blackmail"). Matrixxman channels this clandestine mood, turning "Overrated" into a typically Germanic chunk of mind bending tech-house.

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.

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".

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!

Review: The work of a UK duo, "May The Lord Have Mercy..." is the kind of deep, evocative house tune that could easily cross over. Layered chords envelop the driving rhythm and doubled up claps, while eerie chants hover gradually into earshot. It's like Patrice Scott with a twist of 90s prog drama. "Like Falling Angels" is cut from a similar cloth only on this occasion the synths are darker and more menacing, but the same driving rhythm and rattling percussion prevail. Luke Hess gets to grips with the title track, plunging it into a blacked out dub space illuminated only by acid flecks, while Basic Soul Unit turn "Like Falling Angels" into trippy, jacking affair, littered with chopped up vocals and repetitive synth stabs.

Review: The rather prolific Keita Sano has been responsible for some terrific electronic music over the last couple of years, including must-have 12" singles on Spring Theory, Lower Parts, Mister Saturday Night and Discos Capablanca. Here he makes his first appearance on Brooklyn's Let's Play House, serving up a mini-album full of evocative house productions. Highlights come thick and fast, from the alien electronics and pulsating machine rhythms of "Own Signal", to the John Carpenter-in-space, horror-disco throb of "Fix". Arguably best of all, though, is closer "Think Twice", a relentless disco-house loop jam full of cut-up samples, heavy bass and thrusting drums.

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.

Review: The first Let's Play House single of 2016 comes from 20-something producer Klaves, a Polish starlet whose previous releases have doffed a cap to classic UK garage, '90s US house, and contemporary bass music. "Say It", the title track from this EP, boasts all the ingredients of classic US garage, including rolling organ riffs, skipping beats, soulful vocal samples and occasional jazzy flourishes. Studio Barnhus regular Baba Stiltz emphasizes Klaves' jazzier stylings on his dusty, warm deep house revision, which makes great use of vintage vinyl crackle and some new piano motifs. Finally, Klaves delivers one more chunk of well-lit USG revivalism, offering up the looser and more organic sounding "Awake".

Review: The Let's Play House stable know a thing or two about swinging, pumping house jams that smack you right between the eyes, and this time it's Montel delivering the punch, kicking off with the downright anthemic "Peace In The World", all epic piano stabs and irrepressible funk. "Runnin'" is a more meditative cut, stitching dusty chords and simmering strings into a gentle house groove of the finest kind. "Ecstasy" reaches for the hand-raising antics once again, while "Get Down" gets a little trickier with its chopped up vocal antics and sultry key swells making for a potent, sexy slice of record bag ammo.

Review: Firmly ensconsed in the house music axis, the NYC based label Let's Play House first dabbled in the art of various artists EPs last year with celebrated results, drawing on the talents of The Dead Rose Music Company and Bicep amongst others. Clearly emboldened by their success, a second V/A EP arrives sporting a similarly high profile cast of international contributors in Montel (McWilliams), Portuguese duo The Johnwaynes, Belgian Mugwump and Newcastle pairing Last Waltz. UK talent Montel has been on some form this year and the chord heavy "Can't Go Wrong" maintains his sleek streak while The Johnwaynes offer an undeniably tech house drum track in "Alexandria". Mugwump pulls out his power synths for some throbbing and brooding psychedelia, while Last Waltz remain rocksteady in "Sorry Ronnie" which features flutters of tropicana underpinned by a electrified synths and forward driving beats.

Review: Jacques Renault's NYC based imprint returns with Montrealer Project Pablo, throwing down some sexy neon-lit grooves on the Risk The Rip EP. The title track's late night groove summons nostalgia via the grit of analogue machines and is reminiscent of early Morgan Geist. "Vibrancy Room" has that lo-fi attitude from a bedroom recording, but nonetheless is a bouncy broken beat groove supported by a detuned melody and summery keys: it works a real treat. Finally "Out To Lunch" is the track you could probably consider the most abstract: a deep and hypnotic jam awash in whirly synths and killer bumpy bassline, reminiscent of his work for Vancouver imprint 1080p.

Review: Let's Play House's latest missive comes from the previously unheard Raffaello & Palermo, a studio hook-up between Magic Touch man Damon Palero and Raphael Valensi (best known for his disco/house fusions under the Laura Ingalls alias). Predictably, it's a strong EP that boasts house tracks to suit a variety of moods and environments. So while "New Boys" is a muscular, pulsating, stab-heavy and warehouse-friendly, "The Spirit" sounds like early Daft Punk with a little more loose swing. In contrast, "Grimaldi's Shanghai" is built around both tactile, boogie style synth bass and swirling, starry electronics, while closer "Crazy Eduardo" conjures up fantasies of dancing to Red Zone dubs at the Sound Factory, sometime in the early-'90s.

Review: Let's Play House return to Back To You, the single from label co-founder Jacques Renault that opened proceedings on 2013 with this clutch of remixes from some tip top talent. Already remixed in sumptuous fashion by Beats In Space artists Paradis, "Back To You" is reworked further by the first class talents of Tom Trago, Fantastic Man and Francis Inferno Orchestra. Rush Hour's Tom Trago takes the lead, embellishing further the thumping drums and hummed melodies of Renault's original with suitably instantaneous dancefloor results. The accompanying pair of refixes from Australian pair Fantastic Man and Francis Inferno offer some pared down in comparison, with the former taking a stripped back, slow burning approach and the latter launching into space.

Review: If you've been paying close attention to DJ charts over the last couple of months, there's a strong chance you'll have come across this rush-inducing chunk of classic house revivalism from Brooklyn's Jacques Renault. Already a hit on the back of a limited, single-sided white label release, "Got To Believe" brilliantly stitches together elements from various classic - and lesser-known - late '80s and early '90s house anthems. Think familiar stabs, intoxicating female vocal samples, and New York house pianos. What really makes the track, though, is the way that it flits between two contrasting beat patterns; a hip-house style 120 BPM breakbeat and a Victor Simonelli-ish undulsating basement house groove. It's simple, but devastatingly effective: guaranteed floorfiller.

Review: Producing house music is far from easy, but Jacques Renault time and time again manages to fools us into thinking it could be. His first rabbit out of the hat trick in 2013 is the functional and jovial Back To You EP on his own Lets Play House imprint. Lead track "Back To You" takes full advantage of some filtered horns and bouncing bongo percussion - it's not hard to see this track being embraced widely by DJs especially when samples washed in reverb and delay fill and litter the track, whilst subtle African chants add a individual edge. The same dubby horns - only dubbier - feature on the Paradis remix, only to be lightened by note and word sung vocals, triangle percussion tinkers and a reinforced bassline, deepening the track even further.
