Review: Fouk man and Outplay co-founder Daniel Leseman doesn't release much, but what he does put out is invariably excellent. The On The Fritz EP is his first solo excursion, and offers a trio of fluid chunks of Detroit-influenced deep house. There's an attractive wiggle to the effortlessly soulful "Drums", a study in atmospheric, melody rich house blessed with heartwarming chords, shuffling percussion and cascading riffs. "On The Fritz" takes a similar approach, with an epic breakdown - all lazy, twinkling piano, held-note chords and swirling pads - enhancing the dancefloor experience. Finally, the string-drenched "Time To Go", with its' winding synth solos and dusty groove, delivers a tactile chunk of hazy, late night deep house.

Review: We were full of praise for Fouk's last outing on Outplay, November 2017's Butterfunk EP, so hopes are naturally high for the duo's first release since. We shouldn't have worried. Like its predecessor, Mating Call is something of a triumph. The title track - a subtly Afro-fired chunk of warm-hearted deep house/disco fusion - is probably our pick of the bunch, though the other two tracks are similarly enjoyable. Choose between the grunting, low-slung funk-house rhythm, tweaked James Brown samples and restless bass of "Just Feel Good" and "Down Below", a more straightforward trip into woozy and sun-kissed dancefloor deep house territory that should get more than a few spins from DJs this summer.

Played by: BRENDON P, Chugginedits
Review: Given that each of their previous releases has been on-point, it's little surprise to find that Fouk's latest EP is packed full of warm, sample-heavy, disco-flecked deep house treats. We'd argue that the headline attraction is bouncy opener "Organ Freeman", a tasty workout that layers fresh organ solos over a house groove built around rubbery bass and obscure disco-funk samples, though the wilder and more driving "Wrong Way" pushes it close. Elsewhere, "Butterfunk" is a lolloping trip into mid-tempo deep house/disco/jazz-funk fusion, while closer "Winter" is a loved-up chunk of deep space instrumental hip-hop with added boogie synths.

STS-136 (Final Call) - (4:46) 88 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Following a whole string of dope dispatches on the likes of Dirt Crew, House Of Disco, Lost My Dog, London's Wolfman makes his debut on Dutch deep house imprint Outplay. Four cuts in total, as always with Harry, both vibe and variety are the main priorities. "Hitch" is a loose-grooved hazy strutter with alluring percussion, "Pigs In Blankets" is as tasty as its name suggests with velvet falsettos, dreamy pads and slinky sleazy bass, "Nemoto" is the stone cold jacker of the pack with powerful filtered licks and a beat that you never want to quit. Finally "STS 136" bids us adieu on a sub-100 slo-mo strut. Heavy in the reveries with deep woozy flourishes, it's the perfect conclusion to yet another perfect EP from Harry. Bon voyage.

Review: Junktion is Hans Peeman from Nijmegen, Netherlands, co-founder/A&R at Outplay. The deeper side of house and everything that goes with it is his thing and The Wide Awake EP is good evidence of this. There's a real Thomas Bangalter style vibe to this EP, as evidenced on the low-slung disco loop goodness of the title track and "What We Are" following in suit, with more wicked sample cut ups rocking the night away on this funky groove. Then we've got "Don't Mess Up" which is perfect for those Summer open-air parties with its dusty arrangement and hands in the air vibe; the real highlight on here.

Daniel Leseman - "On My Mind" - (6:14) 114 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.97
Review: Hans Peeman (Junktion) and Daniel Leseman's Outplay is strictly committed to spreading the gospel of deep house music and this sermon comes courtesy of the aforementioned, with a bit of help from Laurence Guy. He appears first with the title track, which samples a pretty breathtaking strings section mixed with a spangling Derrick May style synth melody which fades out and gives way to a pretty wicked arpeggio... and some cowbells; sold already? Next up is Junktion with "Breakfast At Midnight" an offering of deep and dusty late night disco that certainly takes its cues from KDJ, but that's totally fine by us. The Brame & Hamo remix is more dancefloor friendly, slo-mo deep house that fans of Genius of Time or MCDE will appreciate. Finally Leseman's "On My Mind" offers us another deep and dusty house gem that revels in its beautifully sombre Motor City vibes. Not bad for a guy from Utrecht!

Murmur - (6:44) 114 BPM
from $1.97
Review: The talented Mancunian Loz Goddard delivered a trio of fine EPs for Dirt Crew, Quintessentials and Razor 'N' Tape Reserve, in the process significantly enhancing his reputation. Happily, his first release of 2017, which also marks his return to Outplay after a two-year absence, is also rather good. Check, in particular, "Hazy", a groovy, disco-influenced deep house roller full of swinging drum fills, twinkling keys and swirling samples. He's in immaculate, Larry Heard-meets-early St Germain mode on "Peaches", then pays tribute to lazy, sun-kissed afternoons on effortlessly Balearic, jazz-funk influenced deep house closer "Murmur".

Played by: FINGERMAN
Review: Junktion, Daniel Leseman and Kristoffer Ljunberg's Outplay imprint has been going strong for a couple of years now and the label heads have started branching out to new talent after each one of them put in an appearance early on. The dudes have picked up the up and coming Loz Goddard who comes through correct with four discofied floor cuts on the deep house side of things. Luscious basslines, gorgeous keys and intricate vocal chops make for an effective collection of tracks. Our pick is certainly "Monkey Tears" thanks to its jazzed-out vibes and rattling mass of kick drums...check "Move It On" for that French filter house sound, too!
