Review: Take Delphic, tie them up on a yacht and push them off into a deepest corner of the cosmos - only then will you find yourself supping a cuppa with The Tea Street Band. Here we find them handing over the controls to a whole range of remixers, each of them adding a new twist to their chugging, urgent Balearic jam. Highlights include Baltic Fleet's coma-like washes of depth and mood, Kooky's more classical electro stomp flex and Karpia's synth-soaked meanderings. Keep pushing on!
Review: It would be fair to say that Late Nite 'DUB' Addict (real name Dan Smith) has found a home at the reborn TRAX label. Since joining the infamous imprint in the summer of 2020, he's released an astonishing nine EPs. Here he makes it a straight 10 via his first four-tracker of 2021. Smith begins in quietly impressive form via the chunky beats, even chunkier bass and sampled laughter of 'Minimal Criminal', a kind of druggy drum jam for sweaty basements, before doffing a cap to the Windy City's house heritage on the retro-futurist sleaze of 'Come On Move'. 'Chubby Chunks' adds warehouse-ready, hip-house style riffs to a dancehall-influenced acid house groove, while 'I Feel Energy' peppers another wonky, early morning rhythm with Technotronic and deep house samples.
Review: Bristol's The Allergies (aka Moneyshot and Rackabeat) blew people's minds with their debut LP, As We Do Our Thing and now they are back with follow up, Push On. We're used to the pair effortlessly fusing funk, Northern soul and big beats but this time round they've expanded their horizons to also feature hip-hop, with UK MC veteran, Dr Syntax (The Mouse Outfit, Foreign Beggars) joining the fray. Some of the many highlights include the retro soul stomp of "Entitled To That", the Fatboy-goes-back-to-sixties Southern soul of "Since You've Been Gone" and the clavinet-driven funk of "Get Down On You".
Review: To date, Mexico-based producer Future Feelings has tiptoed the fine line between deep house and nu-disco. "Stay On The Scene", though, is an altogether murkier affair, with pulsating, Jaydee style Belgian bass and trippy electronics underpinning a gnarled spoken vocal. It's more akin to something that you'd find on Hot Creations or Crosstown Rebels than Electrique, but that's no criticism. The strangely titled "Eddie Mercury (Mike Dub)" version is, if anything, even more intense, with darker textures and some twisted acid touches. It's a real late night, heads-down hip-wiggler. It's probably the pick of the two tracks, which is some compliment given the qualities of the original version.
