Get It Right - (5:43) 118 BPM
Review: On this hot-to-trot three-tracker, Tensnake welcomes a couple of new names to the True Romance family, namely Dutch duo T.U.R.F and Australian rising star Sondrio. The threesome hit the ground running with title track 'Higher', a classy disco-house number that sees them wrap a wonderfully organic-sounding, percussively detailed house groove in Soundstream style filtered disco strings and their own twinkling electric piano solos. The disco-fired fun continues on 'Seeing Stars', where rubbery bass guitar, short male vocal samples, swirling disco textures and echo-laden horns catch the ear, before they opt for a quirker, chunkier and more sparsely arranged sound on killer closing cut 'Get It Right'. Serviceable, high-quality club cuts: what's not to like?

The Heart Of Dark Matter
   
The Heart Of Dark Matter - (6:36) 112 BPM
   
Luminous - (6:00) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Following on from last year's 'Spazio Segreto' EP, UK producer Factory Sequences returns to Tensnake's True Romance label with another simple two-tracker. Both cuts operate in that currently much-frequented region of the musical spectrum where Italo/cosmic disco meets progressive house, and as such either will go down well on floors that like it epic and synth-tastic. That's not to say there's no variety on offer, though, with 'The Heart Of Dark Matter' the pick for peaktime dancefloors while 'Luminous' is a slightly more drifty, contemplative kinda cut that'll be better suited to very late or post-club play.

Bomb D Amour
   
Bomb D Amour - (5:32) 117 BPM
   
Petit Ami - (6:38) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: After cutting his teeth on Shir Khan's Exploited imprint, Enduro Disco pops up on Tensnake's True Romance label with a highly creditable two-track missive. There's much to admire about opener (and title track) 'Bomb D'Amour', a gently bouncy number in which cut-glass strings and colourful synthesizer riffs dance atop a warm, jazzy bassline and loose-limbed disco-house drums. He flips the script on 'Petit Ami', basing the action around a dominant analogue bassline, warming pads, sparkling disco guitars and snappy, snare-heavy house drums. Like its' virtual A-side companion, the track gets just the right balance between nu-disco colour and weighty, club-ready house.

Karumi (feat Ground Plane Aerial) - (5:23) 123 BPM
Played by: Twin Sun
Review: It may only be two tracks deep, but Ben Gomori's first outing for Tensnake's True Romance label could well be his best solo release to date. That's a bold claim given the Monologues and Sterns Edits founder's track record in recent years, but it's one we stand by. For proof, check first superb opener 'Choom', a bustling, off-kilter and peak-time ready chunk of jacking analogue house/disco-fusion rich in booming bass, cut-up orchestral stabs, sweaty drums, mind-mangling acid lines and sampled vocals. Equally as inspired is Ground Plain Aerial hook-up 'Karumi', where twinkling piano motifs, dreamy vocalisations and glassy-eyed chords rise above stuttering, delay-laden proto-house drums and a Boyd Jarvis style bassline.

Nitty-Gritty
   
Nitty-Gritty - (7:00) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Moovin' - (6:27) 124 BPM
Review: Ibiza-based house and disco fusionists Melon Bomb have been operating for a few years, though this two-tracker for Tensnake's True Romance imprint is still their debut single (previously, they have contributed cuts to multi-artist EPs). Their style is sweaty and celebratory, with choice loops from '70s disco and funk cuts rising above boisterous beats and booming basslines. This is best exemplified by opener 'Nitty-Gritty', where flash-friend funk guitar licks and razor-sharp disco strings catch the ear while redlined house beats and weighty pump away beneath. 'Moovin' [sic], meanwhile, is a more traditional chunk of French Touch inspired disco-house hedonism, with well-placed filter sweeps and delay style effects being used to add rush-inducing peaks and troughs. If you're searching for some excitable and weighty disco-house workouts, look no further.

Ichika
   
Ichika - (8:05) 124 BPM
   
Play - (6:13) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Jozef K doesn't perhaps get the props he deserves, despite a lengthy career and an extensive discography that includes killer cuts on such labels as Chiwax, Let's Play House and Skint. He's in prime form on this two-tracker, which not only marks his first release of 2021, but also his debut on Tensnake's True Romance label. Title track 'Ichika' is simply brilliant, with the frequent Winter Son collaborator wrapping an energetic, sub-heavy groove in effortlessly dreamy chords and the kind of wonderfully emotive, undulating synthesizer lead lines that sound particularly potent when the sun is rising above, or sinking below, the horizon. In contrast, 'Play' is a touch quicker and more intergalactic in tone, with delay-laden drum fills and spacey chords catching the ear.

Review: Tensnake's True Romance label (est. 2017) gather together the cream of their 2020 output on a five-track EP featuring cuts from Maxi Meraci, Kocleo, Street Player, Factory Sequences and Melon Bomb. The EP as a whole operates in the vague hinterland between disco-house and nu-disco, with Street Players' 'Feel My Love' sitting most firmly in the former camp, Factory Sequences' oddly-titled 'Kvcf' most firmly in the latter and the other three cuts somewhere in the middle, while the jazzy keys and disco strings on Melon Bomb's 'Sweetness' make it the standout to these ears.

Review: Straight-laced drums straight outta Rome thanks to Italian producer Kocleo with this San Lorenzo three-track stunner! It presents a debut release for Kocleo on Tensnake's platform which sees the artist push a pumping disco and acid house blend of righteous Italo met with the slightest of techno touches. With some progresive heaviness weaving its way into "Fase2", Kocleo's "Break Away" provides a simmered down alternative to the big room antics of "San Lorenzo" and its synth heavy flow. Dancefloor romance!

Didn't I - (6:27) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Four-man crew Melon Bomb's only previous output has been a smattering of re-edits on compilation style releases, so this debut solo single for Tensnake's True Romance label is a significant step in their blossoming career. It's quietly impressive, too, with the Ibiza-based quartet offering up a pair of tracks that are the audio equivalent of sweltering afternoon sunshine. Lead cut "Sweetness" sees them cloak bumping house beats and thickset bass in wavy, delay-laden electric piano snippets, swirling orchestral samples and well-placed spoken word vocal snippets. Virtual B-side "Didn't I" is a little more Balearic in tone, with pulsing, French Touch-style motifs, tropical sound effects and glistening guitar samples riding another chunky bassline and energetic house beats.

Review: Six years has passed since Tensnake established the True Romance label, so this retrospective "best of" is arguably long overdue. The ten-track set is naturally dominated by his productions, with highlights including the dreamy Italo-disco revivalism of "Hello?", the slap bass-propelled Balearic disco cheeriness of "All In All" and the seductive electronic sensuality of "Desire". Elsewhere, there's another chance to savour Tiger & Woods superb mid-tempo proto house meets Italo-disco revision of Sunrise Highway's "Some Kind of Fool", a deserved airing for Phil Gerus' synth-laden jazz-funk workout "Make Time" and some stellar disco-house from T.U.R.F (the excellent "Never Get Enough".

Review: Over the last few years, electrofunk-loving Moscow producer Phil Gerus has released some thrilling material. While some of this has been 100% original material, he's rather good at crafting re-edits of obscure, synth-fuelled material, too - as last year's "Make Time" EP on True Romance proved. This return to Tensnake's label is similarly inclined. Check, for example, the NYC freestyle-goes-to-Europe flex of "Kabary" and the spacey '80s soul wriggler "Not That Kind of Girl". Elsewhere, "Sudden Move" is a fine slab of starry, sax-laden deep space brilliance, while "Program Sabotage" is a glassy-eyed, slo-mo bubbler laden with tactile chords and meandering synthesizer melodies.

Review: Throughout his career to date, Jozef K has been a serial collaborator, releasing a string of well-received EPs in cahoots with regular studio buddy Winter Son. It's notable then, that this first outing for Tensnake's True Romance label sees him on a solo mission. It's a rather fine EP, all told, with opener "Sunshine Music (featuring Lauraell)" brilliantly wrapping swirling, filtered instrumentation and drowsy vocal samples around a tough but atmospheric rhythm track laden in well-placed delay and reverb effects. Elsewhere, "Within My Soul" sees the producer brilliantly build energy via fizzing, effects-laden string stabs and jacking drum fills, "Paris NYC" is a fluttering deep house/French touch fusion and "You Should Have Said Goodbye" is a warm and hypnotic trip into classic U.S deep house territory.

Review: Tensnake fires up the engine for a new offering on his True Romance imprint with some serious heat. "Hello?" is yet another serving of infectious nu-disco to set the dancefloor alight with its euphoric elements and catchy melodic arpeggio like only the man from Hamburg (who now dwells in Los Angeles) can do! Following up some great releases on the label by Phil Gerus, Freundchen and Janis: you can really count on True Romance in terms of the quality factor.

Freundchen (Phil Gerus remix) - (5:53) 114 BPM
Review: As the title suggests, this EP boasts fresh reworks of the title track from Marco 'Tensnake' Niemerski's much played Freunchen EP. First to play around with Niemerski's parts (tee-hee) is man-of-the-moment Red Rack'em. The Berlin-based Brit employs some savage sample editing, layering filtered vocal and orchestral samples over a typically tactile, hybrid disco/house groove. Niemerski's old friend Phillip Lauer takes a different approach, re-imagining the track as a bouncy chunk of mood-enhancing Balearic house complete with Italian house piano riffs and bubbly arpeggio lines. Arguably best of all, though, is the killer version by Russian producer Phil Gerus, which sounds like a loved-up fusion of Italo-disco, synth-boogie, Belgian New Beat and sun-kissed Balearica.

Review: For its sixteenth installment, True Romance is proud to welcome the very talented Janis into its ranks. The busy Frankfurt based producer concocted an irresistible two tracker of oddball grooves here. "Machst Du Jetzt Musik?" is smooth and summery deep house that takes it cues from the dusty MPC house jams of Berlin's Money $ex crew, while second offering "Play, Stop, Pause" is a bit more uptempo with its jazzy and slightly techno-ish elements giving the track an interesting edge.

Review: Russian DJ/producer Phil Gerus has been releasing material for a few years, but it's only in the last 18 months that his reputation has begun to rise. This outing on Tensnake's True Romance label follows on from a fine EP for Lumberjacks Boogie and a digital-only electrofunk exploration on Futureboogie. The real stunner is "Wearing Her Black Boots Again", a thrusting, Italo-disco inspired exploration full of dirty synth arpeggio lines, delay-laden percussion hits and rubbery, punk-funk bass. Elsewhere, he saunters off towards AOR disco territory on "Make Time", explores heavyweight P-funk pastures on the drum machine sweatiness of "Detective From Kamakura", and distorts and loops up an '80s soul wobbler on digital-only cut "The One You Need".

Review: Marco Niemerski's latest outing under the now familiar Tensnake alias is a typically varied affair, with the long-serving producer variously joining the dots between druggy Italo disco, kosmiche, disco, electrofunk and deep house. Title track "Machines" sits somewhere between pitched-down Italo-disco and deep space cosmic disco, with Niemerski expertly working a druggy arpeggio bassline throughout. Elsewhere, "All In All" sees him build a wavy chunk of peak-time disco around a bongo-laden rhythm track, spacey electronics and an elastic bassline, while the wonderfully Balearic "1975" sounds like Daft Punk after several kilos of Morocco's finest and a fist full of happy pills.
