Review: Guy J's Lost & Found bring us the fifth installment in their annual 'best of' series. The collection's sitting in our Deep House section but, like the label's output generally, would be equally at home on the progressive/melodic pages, with the label boss's two contributions sitting alongside tracks from other well-known names such as Brian Cid, Tantum, Stereo Underground and Roy Rosenfeld. It can all get a bit floaty and epic in places, and tracks like Stereo Underground's 'Space Fields' and Guy J's 'Beast Of Sea' arguably lean a little more towards the progressive techno side of things, but there's still much to enjoy here.
Review: Israeli progressive house hero Khen is back with some more sublime and hypnotic grooves on the deeper tip for Lost & Found - the Bedrock sublabel run by his hometown hero Guy J. From the sensual and emotive "Pecas" or the moody dancefloor drama of "Lost Of The Time" which is sure to get the heads down when the strobelight comes on. The impressive EP closes out with the dark and atmospheric energy of "Evergreen" that's perfectly geared for late night tunnel vision. First popping up on our radar a couple of years back with his impressive debut album One Day Of Independence, Khen has mainatined his edge on his productions with this killer release.
Review: Chicola, the Israeli veteran producer, unleashed over two decades of music production experience on the excellent 'Could Heaven Be' LP in late 2017. Now with these remixes we hear a different groove among all the familiar elements on tracks such as "Could Heaven Be" (Ruede Hagelstein remix) which sees the Berlin veteran deliver an adrenalised exploration in dancefloor drama, the Johannes Brecht remix of "If He Thought You Ever Changed Your Mind" takes the track into deeper and more contemplative territory and Karmon's hi-tech rendition of "Velvet Afternoon" goes for that Innervisions/Exit Strategy kind of sound.
