Review: Moonrise Hill Material has an interesting mission statement. The French label says that it is dedicated to "poetic house music", a deliciously open-ended concept that's open to all sorts of interpretations. In the case of this EP - a multi-artist affair featuring label regulars and newcomers - that largely means chunky club tracks that doff a cap to classic disco and boogie. There are deviations from the blueprint, of course - see the dub-flecked tropical house slinkiness of Tochigi Canopy's "Gulf Ressac", or the Andres-ish loop jazziness of LB aka Labat's "Your Ass Gotta Go" - but it's likely most DJs will reach for the celebratory positivity of Etheyne and Folamour's party-starting A-side cuts.

Review: We've not been short on material from lion of Lyon Ethyene of late. Impressively, Essence of Adolescence is the Moonrise Hill Material co-founder's fifth solo EP in the past 18 months. As usual, the five-track set is packed with dusty, jazz-flecked samples, sumptuously soulful musicality, and the kind of slinky, sun-kissed grooves that seem to shimmy from the speakers in a haze of high-grade smoke. Along the way, he fuses deep house with starry jazz-funk ("Time Flies Baby"), sultry modern soul (impeccable, vocal-laden loop jam "Cherish The Day") and string-drenched Philadelphia disco (bouncy shuffler "A Common Soul"). Typically, he's also included a bonus instrumental hip-hop workout ("E-Fuel Ov'me").

Review: It would be fair to say that this debut EP from Lyon-based producer Kaffe Creme has been in demand since the first pressing sold out. Happily, Moonrise Hill Material has decided to make it available on digital to satisfy demand. It remains a fine collection of dusty, sample-heavy dancefloor cuts, with barely a duff cut in sight. Highlights include the flute-laden bump of hazy house opener "Kapo Choc", the funk-fuelled hypnotism of "Jessica Penrose" and the Dilla-in-space instrumental hip-hop bounce of "Mountain Flow". "Chez Moune", a jazz-fuelled outing that accompanies killer samples with some particularly fluid instrumentation, may well be the best track of all.

Review: Another gold asset from the ever-developing Moonrise Hill collective, Saint Paul emerges from the shadows with his first full EP for the label. Every track is a stone cold soulful house gem. Jacking, rough around the edges but soaked in serious sentiment and human realness, every cut touches the heart. Highlights include the O'Neal style vocal touches on "Heat Is A Melody", the Balearic waves and sandy-toed surges of "Frenetic Dance Under The Moonlight" and the stripped back sample fire of "Boogie Or Not Boogie".

Review:  It would be fair to say that Moonrise Hill Material has fast become one of the most in-demand labels of recent times, with each 12" missive selling out in record time. Saint Paul kicks things off with the pleasingly positive, D-Train sampling thrills of boogie-house pumper "Saturday In Your Mind", before Marco Bianco weighs in with the manipulated horn stabs, rubbery disco bass and stomping drum machine hits of "Line 1202". Then it goes to a dusty, pleasingly weird, MPC-driven sample-house fuzziness of G2S's "Check-O-Matic", and the wayward jazz-house brilliance of "Spy Big Band" by Kaffe Creme, which is arguably the EP's standout moment.
