Relax Your Mind - (6:17) 128 BPM
Review: Moda Black present their first release from Celsius and it's nothing but old school house vibes o' clock. "Thought As Much" takes off where Disclosure left us with a timeless house groove that teeters politely into the realms of garage thanks to a Todd Edwards style chopped up vocal. "Relax Your Mind" conjures up memories of the mid 90s too, but does so with a more of a sprightly, almost trance-like arpeggio. A very strong label debut.

Review: Glasgow's Mia Dora have been made a big impression over the last 12 months, following a string of on-point EPs and a much-played remix of Roots Manuva for Big Dada. Here, they return to original home Moda Black with another chunk of melancholy peaktime house - all twinkling melodies, robust bottom end and woozy, touchy-feely, pitched-down vocals. DJ T takes the best bits of the original - the chords, melodies and vocals - and layers them on top of a chunky, bass-heavy new groove on his rework, while label bosses Jaymo and Andy George give the original a total overhaul. Their interpretation - fluid, energetic, deep and bassy, with some delicious new strings - is arguably the best thing on the EP.

Alone (David Jach remix) - (7:06) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Belfast's Gerry McCartney enjoyed a productive 2013, delivering a slew of hyped house releases on Loft Records, 2020 Vision, W&O Street Tracks and Delayed Audio. Here he pops up on the similarly well-regarded Moda Black, delivering a pair of certified late night bangers. "What You Think" combines bold, bumpin' beats with swirling sampled strings, choice vocal samples and just the subtlest hint of disco flavour. Arguably even stronger is "Alone", a thick, murky but rush-inducing trip into late '80s, early '90s territory - think "Good Life" meets New York basement house, circa 1992, and you're close. David Jach remixes "Alone", turning the original into a swinging chunk of late night bass-house goodness.

Call Me (feat Joel Culpepper - 7 inch) - (4:41) 118 BPM
Review: There's a definite "odds and ends" feel to Moda Black's Little Black Book series, which is designed to sit somewhere between an album, a remix album and a compilation. The second volume in the series comes from Groove Armada, and boasts eight previously unheard dancefloor-focused cuts from the long-serving duo, a bunch of remixes by other artists of their work, a tasty collaboration with Extra Curricular and a few curiosities (see their house rework of Rockers Revenge's "Walking on Sunshine"). Musically, it largely sticks to a main room/Ibiza-friendly powder house flex (albeit with a veritable smorgasbord of vintage house and garage influences). As for the remixes, they're largely impressive, with Pillowtalk, Chaim, Huxley and The Emperor Machine all delivering killer blows.

Review: Groove Armada are back on their own imprint Moda Black with some brilliant remixes of "Call Me". First up is the Medlar remix of Wolf Music fame who serves up a soulful hands in the air house remix which works well. Next up Spanish progressive house auteur Henry Saiz steps up to deliver a spooky and atmospheric rendition, but still utilises Joel Culpepper's vocals quite well. Finally the Fouk remix is ever typical of the Dutch duo on this funky fun loving take on deep house.

Introducing the End - (6:12) 120 BPM
Review: Colin Barratt has enjoyed an eclectic career, having moved from hard house to tactile, synth-propelled deep house via electro-house and tech-house. Hints of his rave past can be found on this three-tracker for pal Jaymo and Andy George's Moda Black imprint. The title track's energetic shuffle and slick chords are periodically interrupted by a rush-inducing rave riff, while "Shake Your Body" packs a lot of energy into its shuffling drums and hissing hi-hats. The sweeter "Introducing The End", meanwhile, sounds like the sort of slick, woozy groover you'd find filling out the flipside of a big-name Hypercolour release. Its quaint, cut-up vocals are pure Huxley, too.

Review: Jaymo and Andy George's Moda Black returns with another one from Hot Creations crewman Hot Since 82. He's got Habischman on board for "Leave Me" and it gets the remix treatment by the legend that is Dubfire, taking the said track on a dark journey through progressive house. Secondly we have "Sundown" remixed by Audiofly aka Luca Saporito and Anthony Middleton who take things on more of a sublime, afterhours tech house tip on the "All Day I Dream" vibe.

Shadow Child - "So High" - (6:34) 124 BPM
Review: It's the season for giving, so Hot Since 82 and Shadow Child have decided to exchange presents - or, more specically, remix each other's tracks. The result is a four-tracker that features two original tracks and two remixes. Hot Since 82's snappy, tech-meets-electro house jam "Knee Deep In Louise" gets given a right Royal boot up the backside by bass music fiends Shadow Child - think rave riffs, gut-twisting sub bass action and 2012's most omnipresent electronic music attraction, the pitched-down vocal sample. Meanwhile, Hot Since 82 turn Shadow Child's Hypercolour-ish garage/deep house assault, "So High", into a strobelight house anthem with woozy, pitched down R&B vocal samples and swinging drums aplenty.

Artificial Intelligence - (6:57) 128 BPM
Review: 'Heat' is the kind of track that was just made for the dancefloor, as the track plays you can almost picture it in its perfect setting, 4am, a small club, nearly completely dark with just the occasional flash of light, the odd call of elation from the crowd. The gently pounding beat sends you into a euphoric trance, extenuating every note of the jazzy piano as it dances along the track. 'Artificial Intelligence' is harder and more harrowing than its neighboring track, there's white noise and slow builds, adorned with sci-fi effects and elements.

The Flex - (7:00) 120 BPM
Review: Groove Armada's Moda Black are back with new producer Idamos. The Glaswegian artist made his debut on the recent Moda Black album with the stunning "Heads Down". His name, an acronym of 'I Do All My Own Stunts', is somewhat telling and we can certainly assure you that he's on to big things after having a listen to "Pitch Invasion": a tough, dirty and funked up exercise in late night tech house, while "Comfort In Madness" goes for something much deeper and sultry, complimented by some gentle 303 acid and a tunnelling groove geared for some strobed out moments on the dancefloor. Finally "The Flex" finishes up this fine EP with a dark house experiment aimed squarely at the afterhours, reintroducing some nice 303 acid squeals, exotic melodies and hypnotic pads over its tightly programmed rhythm.

Played by: Rony Breaker, Manhattan
Review: All-star collaboration alert! Regular collaborators Jaymo and Andy George here team up with old pal Colin Barratt, who in recent times has impressed with his productions under the Hauswerks pseudonym. "Take It To The Hoop" is blessed with great swing, working a fluid bumper around liquid house grooves, dreamy pads and just the right amount of male/female vocal cut-ups. "Guess Who" opts for a similar approach, throwing some bubbling riffs and rave stabs into the mix for added energy. Both tunes sound like underground hits in the making, and are sure to get plenty of airtime in coming months.

Here they present a mix on their own Moda Black imprint, and just shy of an hour it's a concise snapshot of them doing what they do best: delivering deep, engrossing, synth-rich grooves. Highlights include the brooding, doom-jack of "Ghost" by Zeke Africa, the beguiling synth cascades of "Ratasta" by Upercent and Javier OrduA+a, and all 11 minutes of Dubfire's remarkable, blissed-out techno-disco rework.

"Tales From The Basement" is pure 21st century hip-house featuring a beefy rolling bassline and chopped up rhymes. "Henrys Treat", goes down the disco route with looped string samples soaring to dizzy heights above a skippy groove that's sure to get the whole club grinning in unison.

Hip Shots (Philip Bader Warehouse mix) - (6:28) 124 BPM
Review: Caution Your Blast, released in the spring of 2015, was one of Jaymo and Andy George's strongest efforts to date. Written and produced with Sidney Charles, its' two tracks offered the perfect balance between jackin' house grooves, bass-heavy garage influences, and the woozy shimmer of contemporary powder house. Here, one of the tracks from that set - "Hip Shots" - gets the remix treatment. Both versions are far rougher, dirtier and heavier than the original, with Crosstown Rebels and Hot Creations man Russ Yallop leading the way. His acid-heavy rework - all undulating 303 lines, snappy beats and chopped-up vocal fills - is particularly potent, though Philip Bader's booming, rave-inclined Warehouse Mix isn't far behind.

Played by: Jay Lumen
Review: For their latest outing, regular studio partners Jaymo and Andy George have joined forces with Hamburg-based producer Sidney Charles (himself a regular contributor to their Moda Black imprint). "Caution Your Blast" is tough and chunky, building slowly via sharp synthesizer motifs, bubbling electronic melodies and classic tech-house percussion. There's a little vintage boompty bump to the Derrick Carter-ish beats underpinning virtual flipside "Hip Shots". The cut-up vocal stabs and heavy bass recall the mid-to-late noughties heyday of Carter's Classic imprint, too, making the track a real retro-futurist blast from the past.

Here, they join forces again to launch Moda Music offshoot Moda Black with a compilation of previously unreleased material. For those interested in the new wave of British and European house, it should be an essential purchase. Some of the duo's own Bristol pals make an appearance, with strong contributions from Lukas (the darting "Best In Show") and Eats Everything & Idiotproof (an excellent, peaktime-friendly remix of The 2 Bears). Elsewhere, highlights include a grandiose new cut from the duo themselves, an organ-heavy garage-meets-cocaine house banger from Disclosure, and a cacophonous rinse-out from Hot Since 82.

Review: Since launching early last year, Jaymo and Andy George's Moda Black imprint has forged a reputation for delivering the sort of fluid, action-packed deep house that takes as much influence from synth-laden nu-disco as tech house, '90s garage and Visionquest-ish slickness. Here, the two bossmen curate a second label compilation featuring a mix of unreleased gems and recent hits. There's plenty to enjoy, from the classic late night wooziness of Eats Everything's "Jazz Hands" and Huxley's rolling, UKG-influenced "Diesel", to the Hot Creations-ish flex of Danny Daze/Maxxi Soundsystem collaboration "Karoline" and Medlar & Pedestrian's '90s US garage groover "TR Wilson".

Review: British DJ Kiwi has been steadily refining his skills as a producer since the mid noughties, releasing on labels such as Optimo, Disco Halal and Futureboogie. His style encompasses a wide array of influences, with elements of disco, techno and electronica always present. Moreover, the likes of Erol Alkan, Andrew Weatherall and DJ Harvey can be counted as fans. Now, making his debut on Moda Black, Kiwi delivers a banging track in the form of "Rabbit Hole" (feat Cactus Sauna), a sleazy indie dance gem that will appeal to fans of the Correspondant or I'm A Cliche sound. It is perfectly backed up by remixes from cult favourites Lord of the Isles (who delivers an absolutely 'kosmische' rendition) and NYC's Willie Burns: who delivers a pitched down EBM mutation which was right up our alley!

Review: Brighton dwellers Maxxi Soundsystem and Thomas Gandey (he of Cagedbaby fame) join forces for a jaunt on Moda Black. "I Don't Care" is the epitome of house in 2012 - all vaguely touchy-feely chords, pitched-down vocal oddness and ket-addled beats straight from the big room rulebook. "Shake Your Head" flips the script, offering a deeper groove and some deliciously tactile melodies (oh, and Gandey doing his best impression of Michael McDonland). Remix-wise, Jaymo & Andy George get out the big bassline and skippy beats on their version of "Shake Your Head", while PBR Streetgang deliver a slick chunk of bespoke house.

Review: Glaswegian producers Mia Dora are the latest combo to be signed to Jaymo and Andy George's hyped Moda Black imprint. This first EP showcases their trademark style, a woozy mix of thickset tech-house low-end, woozy deep house synths and R&B vocal cut-ups. The moody "The Awesome Sauce" sets the tone, coming on like a future anthem for those who like their beats crunchy and their grooves smooth. "Occam's Razor" sounds like a sweaty hoe-down between Waze & Odyssey and Eats Everything, while "Mantis" sees them flexing their rave muscles with a thoroughly debaunched rinse-out. "Half A Devil", meanwhile, is woozy, leftfield and altogether slightly odd - but rather fine with it.

Drug Fool - (6:30) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Having previously appeared on Grizzly with the decidedly tough and breathless "Work That", Odysseus pops up on Jaymo and Andy George's Moda Black imprint with three tracks of sultry, late night house. "Hit It Again" kicks off proceedings by offering bold, grandiose electronic chords, cut-up vocal samples, garage-influenced drums and more drops than your average game of rugby in the middle of winter. The loose and languid "Over You" - all military drums, hypnotic stabs and spinetingling chords - offers a deeper alternative, while the brilliantly titled "Drug Fool" is six minutes of revivalist '90s Belgian techno disguised as 21st century rave. Which, in our book at least, is a very good thing.

Review: Jaymo & Andy George's label Moda Black is all about providing a home for the darker, more velvety sounds of the late, late hours. So, Plezier must be very cough, 'pliezed', with himself for being recruited amongst the ranks of labelmates like Maxxi Soundsystem, Hot Since 82 and Odysseus. "Voyager" is a killer slice of melancholic house, the wooziness of which gives it an unsettling edge. Elsewhere we get the GA Blacklight-isms of "Like", the dubby tropical synthscapes of "Fun Tonight" and even deep soulful house on "Only One". That's the afterparty sorted then.

Played by: Alexis Raphael
Review: Moda Black is back with a new EP from hot contemporary house talent Alexis Raphael, who went from the pirate radio scene of the late '90s and early '00s to securing a release on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss' Hot Waves imprint back in 2011. Shutdown is his debut single on Moda Black, featuring a title track which takes the form of a full-blooded main room house tune with razor sharp hi hats, inviting bass that drops in and out at pleasing intervals and plenty of other stylistic flourish from classic Loon bird calls to reverse synth stabs and ravey vocals. It's beefy, chunky and demands to be danced to. "Exclusive" meanwhile is a little more heads down, a deeper cut with rolling drums, chilly, ticking percussion and curious bassline that nimbly works its way in and out of the arrangement.

Sparks - (5:52) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Polish producer Tomasz Matuszak made his debut under the Tanzlife monicker earlier this year, with a two-track homage to classic US garage and deep house on Local Talk. Here, he delivers something far more contemporary in the shape of two woozy, melodic, emotion-rich liquid house cuts for Moda Black. "Visions" is an understated delight, all chiming melodies, gentle harps and bouncy percussion. "Sparks" contains similarly zippy percussion, working odd vocal samples, snappy hits and fluid chords around a formidably rubbery groove. Bizarrely, it also contains snippets of flamenco guitar, though you have to be sharp to notice. Interesting stuff, all told.

Review: Following recent outings on Anjunadeep and Last Night On Earth, Theo Kottis returns to Moda Black, the label on which he made his name. "It Wasn't Meant To Be", which features a trio of spine-tingling breakdowns, sees the Edinburgh-based producer effortlessly joining the dots between dreamy deep house and slicker, tech-tinged flavours. The latter influence comes to the fore on "Running Nowhere", where drifting chords and chiming melody lines snake their way around a shuffling, tech-house groove. The E.P also boasts a pair of fine remixes from Mobilee man And.Id. There's a chunky, low-slung, mind-altering "Rave Nostalgia" mix - complete with rush-inducing piano breakdown - and a pulsating, no-holds-barred "Acid Dub".

Misunderstood - (7:01) 123 BPM
Review: Theo Kottis from Edinburgh has appeared on a who's who of labels at present from Anjunadeep, Last Night On Earth and Get Physical to Saved, Sub Club and now Moda Black: who present this new hit "Misunderstood". With its euphoric pianos, rushy arpeggios and adrenalised rhythm section: this slinky tech house number ticks all the right boxes and is another hit track you can expect to be hearing a lot of this Summer. This Autumn he will join label mates Jaymo & Andy George on several tour dates. We're hoping they'll be bringing their unique dance floor energy to somewhere near you!
