Review: We've lost count of the number of EPs that Shall Not Fade has put out this year, but the Bristol-based label has genuinely yet to put a foot wrong in 2021. Predictably, the imprint's latest missive - a first label outing from German rising star DJOKO - is another must-check collection of cuts. He begins with the dreamy and bouncy brilliance of feelgood '90s deep house number 'Morning Wonders', before drawing further influence from shuffling US garage and glassy-eyed turn-of-the-90s Larry Heard productions on 'Ventura'. 'Sylvestre Alone' is disco-tinged sample house of the highest order, while 'Don't Compare Yourself' joins the dots between early UK progressive house and bumpin' US deep house. Also worth a listen is Leo Pol's bustling, UK garage-influenced interpretation of 'Morning Wonders'.

Review: It would be fair to say that Shall Not Fade is having a terrific year. The Bristol-based imprint has already treated us to some superb EPs and albums from the likes of Laurence Guy, Lake Haze, Gavico, Ruf Dug, Felipe Gordon and Tilman. Here they serve up another excellent six-tracker, this time from sometime Constant Sound and Banoffee Pies contributor Tom Frankel. There's plenty to set the pulse racing across the EP, with our picks including the alternately spacey and aquatic deep house bounce of 'Better Perspective', the rubbery retro-futurism of 'Slippery Nipple', the warped late-night heaviness of 'Peak District' and the yearning, sunrise-ready dancefloor warmth of sub-heavy closing cut 'Cuckoo Land'.

Review: Arriving on Shall Not Fade is new school producer Kilig that hits a hot streak of releases now following previous outings on Soundtracking The Void and Origins Sounds. Deftly fusing subtle touches of trance and new age synth with classic UK dance styles in numbers like "Clocking In" and "Without You" get your more forthright drum and bass / jungle tracks from "I Wanted To Call & Tell You". A highlight production comes through the mellow sounds and relaxing groove of "Closer" with higher tempos and deeper, Burial-like atmospheres coming through "Overthinking" only to be cooled down by subtle strings and distant echoes of R&B vocals.

Love Theme For The Morning After - (6:13) 124 BPM
Mutual Excitement Is A Wonderful Thing - (4:53) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Certain (To A Certain Extent) - (4:05) 122 BPM
Review: In our opinion, Laurence Guy has put out some of his best material on Shall Not Fade, with last year's The Sun is Warm and Directly Above You EP being particularly potent. The Bristol-based producer is in fine form on his latest missive for Kieran Williams' prolific label, too. Opener 'Love Theme For The Morning After' is breezy, sun-soaked and impeccably emotive, with what sound like manipulated orchestral samples and slowly unfurling chords bobbing away atop a crunchy deep house beat. Title track 'Mutual Excitement is a Wonderful Thing' is arguably even better, sitting somewhere between early morning sample-house and the early works of James Blake, while 'Certain (To a Certain Extent' delivers a devilishly drowsy blend of reverb-soaked electric piano motifs, distant broken-house beats and tons of atmospheric touches.

Review: Two years after unleashing his superb debut album on E-Beamz, Goncalo Salgado AKA Lake Haze pops up on Shall Not Fade with a similarly impressive sequel. Often immersive, dreamy and melodic, the set sees the Portuguese producer and sometime Cr?me Organization artist expertly combining elements of deep house, breakbeat, broken beat, electro and acid on a series of spacey, ear-catching cuts. This hybrid style is probably best epitomised by the bubbly slow acid number 'She Took Me To Her Favourite Club', the shuffling deep house melancholy of 'Always By Your Side' and the chunky-but-intergalactic sounding brilliance of 'Liquid Serotonin', but to be honest all eight tracks are excellent.

Review: There's no denying that Felipe Gordon is one of the most in-form producers in deep house right now, with each successive release from the Colombian seemingly being even greater than the last. He's continued this rich vein of form on A Landscape Onomatopeya, his first full-length for current home Shall Not Fade. The set is naturally rooted in his jazz-funk flavoured brand of deep house, where post-boogie synth sounds, warm electric piano chords and soft-touch jazz guitar solos rise above wonderfully huggable dancefloor beats. There are plenty of ear-pleasing deviations scattered across the album though, from the Azymuth-goes-house brilliance of 'The Colombian Excursions of House Music' and the head-nodding downtempo haziness of 'Wez', to the rare groove style dustiness of 'Howl' and Guru style jazzy hip-hop beats of 'Wake Up'.

Tracks here range from the discofied 'Hi Montana' to the fierce, driving acid of 'La Neta', via the dreamy small-hours deepness of 'AX' and the more accessible, peaktime vibes of 'Round & Round', but whatever house style Ms Sarroca turns her hand to, the production's always polished and Da Funk is always in full effect.

Review: Joe Newham's debut album as Gavinco, last year's Down & Out on Satta, offered a pitch-perfect blend of jazz-house, deep house, and classic US house sounds. His first release on Shall Not Fade, a mini album called Dumont, explores similar sonic territory with predictably impressive results. For proof, check out the jazzy organ riffs, snaking sax lines and chunky grooves of 'Electronic Feeling', the weighty analogue bass, fizzing cymbals and squally sax solos of 'Transit', the Aqua Bassino-esque warmth and breeziness of 'Sweetness', the early St Germain style jazz-house headiness of standout cut 'Fusion', and the rubbery deep disco-house bounce of sunny closing cut 'Estrella', where reverb-laden vibraphone motifs, elastic bass guitar and held-note synth-strings catch the ear.

Review: Berlin-based twosome Black Loops rarely fail to hit the spot - musically at least - with their various releases for the likes of Toy Tonics, Freerange, NeoVinyl Recordings and Pets Recordings' remaining firm favourites years after they first hit stores. Perdictably, they've done it again with Circulation, their second EP for Kieran Willians' Shall Not Fade label. There's much to admire throughout, from the jazzy instrumentation, warming deep house vibes and loose-limbed breakbeats of 'Mike The Dog', and the deliciously dreamy deep house-goes-two step warmth of 'Circulation', to the cheery, up-beat deep synth-pop/deep house/nu-disco fusion of 'Dream2gether'. Also, rather delicious is closing track 'Sanse Sur L'Hardcore', a techno-tempo number that adds all manner of colourful riffs, melodies and chords to a tactile electronic groove.

Review: While some labels have scaled back their output during the ongoing global pandemic, Shall Not Fade has not let up. The Bristol-based label's latest must-check release is a typically jazzy deep house mini-album from experienced German producer Tilman. There's not enough room to detail every track on offer, but we'd suggest starting with energetic, techno-tempo opener 'Relax Yourself' (breezy jazz-funk-house on steroids), before moving on to the squelchy and tactile late-night hypnotism of 'Beauty In The Dark' (think Italian dream house with extra percussive drive) and the bumpin', sample-rich jazz-house goodness of 'Vice Versa', whose beats reminded us of some of Switch and Jesse Rose's work as Inducive. There are plenty more highlights scattered across the EP, making it a genuine must-check for deep house heads.

Securing each of the tracks here with the pair's undeniable skipping rhythms, grooves and hi-hats, a sumptuous kick drum in "All I Know" squeezes its woozy atmosphere that bit more - with a soulful vocal to boot! The title-track throws down a techy set drums next to a melodically influenced bassline and percolating set of synths. With freestyle cosmic jazz taking effect in "Nuances", breathy vocals snippets are furthermore thrown into into a warm mix of cascading chimes and doubled up kick drums perfect for that next sun-glazed and mecholic trip to the dancefloor.

Review: Elation, nostalgia and melancholy have always been the driving emotional forces behind the high-grade lo-fi deep house works of Adam Ansley AKA DJ Poolboi. It's for this reason that Shall Not Fade has picked up Ansley for the debut release on the label's new Classic Cuts series, which focuses on "feel good sounds of all styles, with a nostalgic edge". The Austin-based producer has naturally hit the brief. Opener 'Ghosts' is a bluesy chunk of lo-fi jazz-house/deep house fusion, while the track that follows, 'Tu Tienes Mi Carazone', is a wonderfully tactile chunk of breakbeat-driven deep house. With its twinkling pianos, bongo-laced deep house grooves and heart-aching vibe, 'Elope' reminded us of old Aqua Bassino jams on F Communications, while 'Before You Go' is ultra-deep, smooth and spacey.

We begin with the charming, sunshine laden arrangements and sweeping melodic structures of 'Addicted', which features a terrific original vocal from Danielle Moore. This also comes complete with a high energy rethink from the one and only Shanti Celeste, who adds an extra touch of disco-ready spice to the recipe. Next, 'Manc Sunset' itself explores colourful harmonic structure and unpredictable rhythms, before 'Lo-fi Roller' does exactly what it says on the tin, with some interesting vocal manipulation to match.

Here, the former bring us seven more of his productions on a varied EP that blends together flavas from US garage (check out 'Too Real'), first-gen Chi-town house 'Tool For Lovers') and more - the airy but insistent synths on 'I Know You Would', for instance, hint at drifty Balearic prog, while there's a dark, trip-hoppy undercurrent to the otherwise laidback and dreamy 'Tears Of The Fallen Angel'. Seven decent instrumental cuts, then, that'll work as set-builders for a variety of DJs.

Review: As the title suggests, this dazzling EP is a trans-Atlantic collaboration between two genuine rising stars of house music: Colombian Felipe Gordon, and London's Cody Currie. Musically, the overriding theme of the EP is loose-limbed jazziness and the warming colour of jazz-funk, with the pair setting the tone via the ultra-deep broken beat vibes of 'Better Days' and the sparkling deep house/jazz-funk fusion of Ally McMahon hook-up 'Cold Nights'. 'Late Nights' is a cheery piano-house number laden with spacey synthesizer flourishes, while 'Our Love' is smooth and soulful deep house at its very best. The EP also includes a solo track from each, with Gordon's languid vocal deep house number 'I'm On Fire' being followed by Currie's bumpin' and bass-heavy 'No Future'. In a word: essential.

Going old school hardcore, rave and jungle on "Romford", get your undeniable house grooves from "FFFound" and a slightly techier "4U". Basslines, bleep and breakbeats go all the way in the referential "Have You Seen Mr G?" with a slight of trance capping of this fine release in "Crystl".

Review: Shall Not Fade's recently launched Basement Tracks series has already established itself as a "must-check" for those who like their dance music bold, forthright and exceedingly weighty. The latest offering naturally ticks these boxes and sees Rotterdam rising star Kessler deliver a sextet of club-ready but pleasingly otherworldly dancefloor explorations. Opener 'Lambert Rise' is a strikingly busy and intricately programmed late-night drum & bass mutation, while 'Moonlight Branches' successfully fuses vintage jungle breaks, 90s IDM chords and the immersive lusciousness of old school ambient techno. Elsewhere, 'Old Wives Tales' is a deep two-step garage treat, 'Only a Fool' adds chopped loon bird noises and lilting violins to a stomping psy-trance groove, and 'Kwaku' is a drowsy deep breaks roller.

Review: A few months ago, Shall Not Fade teased Jaymie Silk's arrival at the Bristol-based imprint by chucking one of his tracks on its' fifth anniversary compilation. Now the popular West Country imprint has gone a step further a served up an entire EP from the fast-rising Montreal producer. It's an accomplished outing all told, with Silk bouncing between extra-percussive broken beat/breakbeat funk ('Knock You Down'), sub-heavy jazz-house brilliance ('Jack Johnson'), piano-sporting, soul-flecked analogue house haziness ('Illegal Love') and heart-aching electronic soul ('Unforgivable Blackness', where he sings of 'doing his best to stay alive'). The obligatory remix comes courtesy of Byron The Aquarius, who smartly re-imagines 'Jack Johnson' as a more strident slab of jazzy deep house excellence.

Review: Having really enjoyed Paul Rudder's recent EPs on RDR, Tilly Jam and Flat White Records, we're rather excited by his Shall Not Fade label debut. Happily, he hasn't let us down. Rudder begins by channelling the spirit of exuberant, early '90s Italian piano house on the rushing revivalism of 'Mind Drifting', before exploring the deeper, more organ-rich sound of 90s New Jersey house and garage on the arguably even better 'Losing Dreams'. 'Ah You Know' is a slightly more rugged and bouncy affair featuring squelchy acid bass, while 'Experience' is tougher and chunkier but no less sweaty. Finally, old pal Hurlee once more lends a hand on 'Till You Found', a seductive, early morning house number that reminded us a little of Chez Damier's mid-90s work.

Review: Garry McCartney aka Ejeca continues his mission to bring underground house and techno to the big room with this fine four-tracker on Shall Not Fade. While "Lacer" is a driving affair, McCartney goes deeper on "Make Me" and "Walk You Home". Drawing on classic US house influences, the evocative synths and uplifting vocal samples bring a warm, old school flavour to modern dance floors. "Raser" is also based on 90s styles, but on this occasion, it's the deep but high-paced techno of labels like Rotation. Meanwhile on the title track, this red-hot artist mines a more modern tradition. Featuring an upbeat, jacking groove and repetitive samples, it comes across like a more polished version of Technasia's peak-time sound.

This time round he's in a more forthright, peak-time focused move, charging between the tough-but-drowsy deep house brilliance of 'She Want To Work It', the slowly building, acid-fired heaviness of 'I Can Feel That (Dub)', the kickdrum-heavy, sci-fi futurism of 'Apes Of Mars Part 2', the immersive, Larry Heard-goes-deep techno brilliance of 'Cosmic Raindance' and the sample-house dustiness of 'Can We Do It Again'

Review: Following up his debut album which was released earlier this year, Warsaw-based producer Bartoz Kruczynski - better known as Earth Trax - presents his second album titled, naturally, 'LP2' on Shall Not Fade. The 15 tracks served up here are warmer and more soothing than on his last outing, but at the same time more dance oriented. From the evocative Motor City style tones of ambient house epic "After The Rain", the life-affirming slo-mo acid of "The Complete Trance Induction" and going out all guns blazing onb the end with the thunderous old school techno of "Dark River" calling to mind classic Laurent Garnier. Featured on this digital edition are four bonus remixes for you to enjoy.

Review: While much of Huxley's material over the last few years has been bold, tech-tinged and druggy, this first appearance on Shall Not Fade is pleasingly celebratory and rooted in classic US house. For proof, check bouncy, bass-heavy opener 'Takeaway', where spine-tingling piano riffs, synth-sax and old school vocal samples catch the ear, and the rushing piano-house largeness of future hands-in-the-air anthem 'Patsy'. In between, he offers up a mix of dark, muscular house (see the Tenaglia-at-Twilo era pump of 'Nothing Works', which features some suitably mind-mangling acid lines) and druggy, early morning intensity ('A Hard Fall Up To The Middle', 'Anxiety').

Review: While it may have been designed to reflect the evolving nature of the label's sound over the last half-decade, Shall Not Fade's fifth anniversary compilation is nevertheless packed to the rafters with previously unheard treats. It begins with a techno-tempo blast of garage-influenced deep house warmth from DJOKO and ends with the dark, squelching and ghostly bounce of Dart's 'Transformations'; in between, you'll find 19 more reasons to be cheerful with plenty of serious dancefloor chops. Undisputed highlights include the crunchy, head-nodding pleasure of GVRL's instrumental hip-hop jam 'Love Game', the angular and acid spiked tech-breaks of Harrison BDP's 'The Powerful Play', the drowsy deep house dreaminess of Mutual Attraction's 'MPC Live Track 1' and the rushing rave revivalism of Baltra's killer re-fix of Earth Boys' 'I'm Not Afraid'.

Review: Earlier in the year, Toy Tonic regulars Rhode & Brown joined forces with fellow German deep house sort Tilman for a first collaborative EP on RTB. Here they repeat the exercise on Shall Not Fade, delivering an EP so expansive we should probably refer to it as a mini album. There's naturally much to enjoy throughout, from the bongo-laden heaviness of bouncy piano-house rinse-out 'Times New Romance' and the jazz-funk-goes-deep house wonder that is 'Body Heat', to the huggable breakbeat-house lusciousness of 'Could Weave a Memory', and the ultra-deep, saucer-eyed Afro-house bliss of 'Aywo'. Closing cut 'The Highest Pressure', a tropical-tinged disco-house loop jam, is also rather good.

Review: Bristol-based Shall Not Fade has recently made some shrewd signings, not least rising stars Earth Boys. They've also secured the services of another producer getting plenty of props, Colombian Felipe Gordon. The Bacate Exploration, his first EP for the West Country outlet, is predictably impressive. It sees him bounce between rubbery, Jazz-funk influenced disco/deep house fusion (the heady and addictive title track), acid-fired deep house jazziness (the slick and warming 'Deep (For You)'), classic-sounding US deep house warmth ('(To) Get My Shit Together'), bustling dancefloor funkiness ('The Five Ohh Seeex') and colourful, life-affirming house headiness ('Manzanero's Despair') - all while wielding his trusty bass guitar and some suitably vintage synths.

Review: The Shall Not Fade team have assembled something pretty special here as OTIK delivers five tracks of stunning soundscaping ability, kicking off with the beautiful arpeggio stutters and glistening vocal flexes of 'Night Visions'. From here, the title track 'Zero-Sum Game' unleashes some vibrant percussive lines atop pounding sub layers, before the soothing sitar action of 'Silhouetta' slides into play. The pace then quickens significantly with the shuffling rhythms of 'Falling Forward', with 'Neuron Blossom' providing the perfect outro through some icy harmonic mastery.

Review: Earlier this year Sheffield house act Adelphi Music Factory found a debut on Shall Not Fade with the Joy and Fantasy EP. It marked something of an official debut for the producer who before then only had a run of self-released 12"s and the odd track on Ministry Of Sound. Gaining some extra traction with these Cuba remixes, across the board AMF throws down a happy house and chord heavy sound just like back in the day that sits alongside a seriously smooth, techy and soulful Felipe Gordon remix, tip! Harrison BDP goes minimal still in his mix, touching on acid and bleep inspirations that sits next to a melodic and tropical remake by Germany's Tilman. Havana calls!

Review: Keeping strong in 2020 is Harrison BDP who makes his full debut on Shall Not Fade following a recent offering for its sub-label, Lost Palms, and others like Berg Audio and Standalone Records. Covering all matter of techy, Detroit and housey inspirations in the title-track "Sound Expansion Meditation", "My Deepest Regret" sees Harrison BDP keep it dubby and minimal with a touch of future jazz. Uplifting, linear and cosmic sequences in "Real Love Don't Fade" with the darker trance of "Figures In The Smoke" lightened up by the piano keys in "Country Boy".

Review: While many labels have scaled back their release schedules due to the ongoing global pandemic, Shall Not Fade has done the opposite, delivering a higher-then-normal volume of top-quality releases. Their latest comes from Liverpool lads Matrefakt, whose label debut is as assured and impressive as their previous work on their own ATL imprint. Our pick of a very strong bunch is the driving, locked-in deep house-goes-techno stomp of "Almost As If", though the piano-heavy house retro-futurism of "State" and the acid-tinged "Act Accordingly" are almost as good. Also worth checking are "Keep The Faith", a throbbing and intoxicating vocal number that boasts some genuinely jazzy guitar samples, and Black Loops' loose-limbed (and surprisingly funky) accompanying rework.

Review: Despite co-founding a label on which he can release his music whenever he wants (Brooklyn staple Let's Play House), Jacques Renault frequently showcases his wares on a diverse range of high-profile and well-regarded underground house imprints. He's at it again here, offering up a Shall Not Fade label debut comprised of five fuzzy, sample-rich peak-time workouts. His thickset beats, sweaty grooves and booming dub disco basslines variously get fused with heady Latin beats ("Shake It Fake It"); glassy-eyed disco instrumentation (the slamming "Down To It"); sparkling boogie synth riffs ("Gotta Know"); warehouse-ready stabs and echoing female vocal samples ("Machiato Makin") and Gwen Guthrie vocal samples ("Jazz Man").

Review: Super-charged club tracks from this Ron Elliot debut that adds another huge drop to an already epic year Shall Not Fade is having in 2020. It follows releases from Byron The Aquarius, Big Miz and Ejeca to name a few, with Elliot's entry into the scene dedicated to the Dutch municipality Haarlem that he now resides that arrives full with gregarious basslines, euphoric synths and club-fuelled breaks to make the walls of any underground club (in the literal sense) woof with low end pressure. With touches of '90s rave and trance sentimentality found in tracks likes "NRG" to the happy house arpeggios of "Double Decker" or burning synthlines of "R Signature", there's more overt UKG, jungle and breaks inspirations to behold in "Cortex", "Overmind" and the tremolo-munted tones of "Sweaty Fiver".

Review: Putting out all matter of house, techno, rave and bassline wares since 2015, Shall Not Fade is home to the likes of Mall Grab, Rick Wade and Earth Trax to Big Mizz! The label now gives rise to Adelphi Music Factory, a house duo outta Sheffield inspired this time by old school rave, slowed up hardcore, twisted jungle and two step rhythms. Add some Detroit techno and you're met with Joy & Fantasy, a four-track EP recreating modern Hacienda vibes in "Area 39" to some slamming chord driven house in "The Comedor". UK touches abound in the driving, crowd pleasing "Cuba' (tip!) alongside the pumping, dubbed out and club-ready "Jura". Adelphi Hit Factory

Review: Barely a month has passed since Earth Boys delivered the saucer-eyed delight that was the "Earth Tones" album, but already Shall Not Fade has offered up a fully remixed, feature length set of alternative versions. That's no criticism though, because there's plenty to set the pulse racing from start to finish. Our highlights include the '90s drum & bass goes Balearic sweetness of Baltra's "White Cherry Gelato" mix of "Battery Boys", Interplanetary Criminal's stunningly dreamy late night UKG rework of "Amazon Prime", Soela's deliciously deep, hazy and life-affirming house take on "Los Angeles" - which incidentally reminded us of '90s Scottish deep house producer Aqua Bassino), and J Albert's bonkers-but-brilliant re-fix of "On a Limb", which is frankly impossible to accurately describe.

Review: Finding his music wedged between the likes of Rick Wade, Byron The Aquarius and Ejeca, Glasgow's Big Miz takes up residence again on Shall Not Fade, delivering six six-minute numbers that dive into the depths of house and techno tipped by its Detroit electro mainframe. Classic strands of epic electro find their place in the acid reflections of "HMS Jawside" with upbeat Italo flavours making their way into "Glass Sandwiches" alongside the stripped-back bassline funk of "Pay Me". Some more tongue in cheek material makes its way to frenetic rhythms and disorientating synths of "Downloaded For R Hawtin", with the slightest of acknowledgements in it arrangement going to Lil Louis' "French Kiss". Pucker up.

Review: Given their track record, it's no surprise that Black Loops' first outing on Shall Not Fade delivers the deep house goods. Our pick of a very strong bunch is "Badmanthing", a quirky chunk of rubbery deep house-funk built around a bold, memorable bassline, though the skipping drums, meaty bass and tweaked New Jersey garage motifs of "Plastikhaus" are also hugely alluring. Elsewhere, "No Fear" is a notable fusion of bounding house beats, darting jazz-funk synth sounds and simmering synth-strings, while EP opener "I Know You" is a more classic-sounding slab of deep house cheeriness. This expanded digital edition also contains two collaborations with Ruff Stuff: the thickset, acid-fired bounce of "Rock and Roll", and the colourful deep house/electrofunk fusion of "Is Electro Still A Thing".

Review: Last heard offering up revivalist rave business on Homage (the must-check "Scary Eire"), Irish rising star DART debuts on Shall Not Fade with a similarly nostalgic four-tracker. Opener "Stop For Nothing" is particularly striking, with DART adding creepy, reverb-laden synthesizer lead lines and celestial chords to a sweaty, jacking techno groove. He opts to emphasize relentless synth-bass, spacey electronics and mesmerising melodic motifs on the Orbital-esque "Hit & Run", before raving it up once more via the pounding beats and sci-fi synthesizer sounds of "Shutdown". His love of fusing intergalactic melodies and bustling breakbeats - as outlined on his previous EP - is the main attraction of similarly strong closing cut "Plugged Outro".

Review: Since making their debut on 1080p five years ago, Earth Boys (AKA producers Julian C Duron and Michael Sherburn) have carved themselves a niche as creators of dreamy, humid and often psychedelic electronic retro-futurism. They continue to mine this richly mixed-up, saucer-eyed musical seam on "Earth Tones", an album-length excursion that marks their first appearance on Shall Not Fade. Across the eight tracks, the pair treats us to dubby, Motor City-influenced deep space house (the sax-sporting "Sonama"), sub-heavy, breakbeat-driven U.S garage revivalism ("I Just Love It"), weighty early UK hardcore revivalism (standout "Amazon Prime"), jazzy dream house lusciousness ("Earth Tones"), turn-of-the-90s deep house revivalism ("Los Angeles") and immersive, late night dancefloor bliss ("Got It To Work").
