Review: UK operation Saucy Record return with a swiftly compiled second volume of Saucy Selections featuring a healthy 17 cuts of Tech, Bass, House and Garage from the international community. Label regulars like Libra (UK), Melod!k, and Spekktrum brush up against Saucy newcomers and there's a pleasant array of styles and sounds to be found within this selection, moving from sultry cuts such as opener "Had Enough" by Chris Skapetis to tougher and rougher bassline movers. Grande's "NOS" playfully toys around the Club Constructions approach to dancefloor tools, whilst Spekktrum is on aggro form with compilation highlight "The Game".
Review: Vancouver's 1080p goes from strength to strength in its pursuit of the most subterranean styles of electronic music. There's just something about the Pacific North West at the moment! The mysterious Umfang serves up a diverse array of moods, grooves and textures that have us impressed. The spacey deep house of "Beta Librae" and "Quickly and Softly" are similar to Terreke while there's some reductionist, early noughties style minimal house in the form of "Vast" and "Six". Tracks like "Shant" and "Cygnus" delve into more freeform territory but still keep things ultra deep and floaty. Highly recommended.
