Played by: Brian Brainstorm
Review: Jungle don Benny Page returns to last year's P.U.R.P.L.E album and shares out the parts to some of the many stand-out tracks for some timely remix justice. First up Kursiva plugs "Power" up to the mains and flips it into a high voltage tech-edge shock-out. Zero G follows with his switch-up on "Bless". One of the album's lower tempo dub joints, he supercharges it with skippy breaks, warm skanks and great use of both Sweetie and Eva's vocals. Finally the fast-rising Kleu takes "Should A Know" into brazen new pastures of badness with his absolute shredder of a remix. Boys and girls better know. Dutty!

Review: Ganbatte's latest affair may be all-star affair, but Fabiolous Barker rightly takes top billing thanks to delivering two takes on his latest track, "The Expert". He opens the EP with a hybrid electro/disco flavoured "Old Skool Re-Master" full of whispered vocals, crunchy guitars, throbbing synth-bass and tight horn blasts, before returning at the end with a "Funka-Masta-House" version that underpins the music with a head-nodding house style beat. In between you'll find the bouncy, Hi-NRG era Latin disco-house insanity of Dim Zach's "La Habernaro", the dreamy harmony vocals and ear-pleasing nu-disco grooves of Carlos Gatto's "Call It Love" and the alien funk masterclass that is Don Dayglow's "Gotta Say Yes", a suitably throbbing revision of an old Yello favourite.

Review: Now many have guessed that this one has been in the works for a while, but that makes us no less excited to unveil this tasty new album projct from J:Kenzo, who returns to his home imprint of Artikal Music for 'Taygeta Code'. From start to finish, the album is a true exploration into electronic music, primarily of course focussed around 140BPM. It's got bass pressure on 'Desired State', it's got acidic originality on 'Hoodwinked', it's even got a weighty guest vocal from the legendary Flowdan who returns on Kenzo's Darkside VIP mix of 'Like A Hawk'. This is an excellent showcasing of J:Kenzo's ability within a crowded dubstep scene.

Leading the charge is Discoweey chiefs Hotmood, whose EP opener "We Got It" is an infectious chunk of orchestrated disco whose wild synth solos and rolling groove make it a tried and tested treat. Elsewhere, C Da Afro's "With You" is a loopy, nu-disco tinged disco-house bumper, Da Lukas's slap bass propelled "Be Freak" sounds a little like one of Todd Terje's classic dub disco reworks, and Di Saronno's "Mademoiselle" is a French Touch style re-edit full of rich horn lines, dewy-eyed female vocals and energy creating filter sweeps.

We don't have enough space to list all of the highlights, but we'd suggest checking out his rolling revision of Lee Dorsey's "Night People", the low-slung disco-funk heaviness of the Brass Construction rework ("Gotta Do It"), the intergalactic disco deepness of the Marvin Gaye revision ("Funky Space"), the lightly tooled-up, slowly unfurling take on Tom Browne's "Funkin For Jamaica" and the sweeping, string-laden disco brilliance of "Miracle (V's Edit)".

Review: Logikz Audio are building up a name for themselves as a label who never fail to bring out the big guns with their music. It's always heavy, hard-hitting and built on soundscapes and vibes which are deeply urban. The first track on this VP is no different and it kicks off with 'How We Do', a punchy roller with a bassline that stretches out over the horizon, the only constant being its grinding, coarse nature and the manner in which it constantly mutates and evolves. 'Twisted' is equally as rough but less rolling and more stepping, its structure and nature constantly changes, and it keeps the tune sounding consistently fresh. The rest of the EP is absolute vibes too.

Review: Fresh from their fine collaborative single on Running Back - the rather heavy "Desire" - Butch and C.Vogt join forces once more for an outing on another admirable house imprint, long-running London label Freerange. In its original form, "Vogue" is undulating and gently mind-altering, with the pair wrapping angular electronic motifs, soft-touch chords and dreamy synth sweeps around crunchy, drum machine style percussion. Label co-founder Jimpster provides the headline remix, opting for deeper bass, warmer chords and oodles of layered tribal percussion, which Butch provides a "Bonus Edit" that seems even dreamier than the original mix. The EP includes another tasty bonus in the shape of Vogt's edit of saucer-eyed retro-futurism gem "Windeck".

Review: Some six years ago we met Mr. 8040. It was 2357 A.D. and our hero was in the throes of hazardous journey back to his home planet. This premise was set up with Welcome To Mikrosector-50 LP in 2013, a debut Space Dimension Controller album for R&S. Love Beyond The Intersect, it is told, sees Mr 8040 again exploring "the unknown world in the hope of finding help." With Space Dimension Controller at the controls, this return represents a deeper touch to the story, with Moodymann levels of deep house depth reached in "Alone In An Unknown Sector" alongside the equally ambient and evoking sounds of "Sundown On Memory Point". A new level of maturity and minimalism shines through on the album with the power of subtleness is on display here. Cue ambient swells of cosmic atmospheres dusted up by the soft pitter-patter of luscious drums and sweet shining synths. Godspeed Mr. 8040!

Review: Since Muna Musik's gradual introduction to the scene in 2014 their regular various artist releases have lassoed a wide ranging and respected group of minimal, house and tech house tailing artists. Huxely joins the likes of Sascha Dive, DJ Wild, Timo Maas and Cassy in hooking up with the labels big show of names, and does so with the locked club rhythm "Halo". UK story telling of detuned observations adds an extra spot of psychedelica to the vocal mix, with Shaf Huse also given space for an instrumental version of clubby Brooklyn bounce number "Jus the Tip". Arpeggiated Italo house also from Chris Di Perri & Domenic D'Agnelli sits nicely inside with some hightailing minimal and acid funk from Sante too.

Replicant - "Cuntroll" (Exile remix) - (4:28) 175 BPM
Review: Dub Damage Recordings don't tend to put out music that's weak, thin or otherwise not suitable for the dancefloor. This EP courtesy of Jeopardize & Exile is a testament to that, both cuts do some serious damage and the release overall is certainly on the sharper end of the spectrum. 'Cypher' is the best of the bunch and it's got a rough, Sofa Sound edge that injects a satisfying level of oomph into the arrangement. Exile's remix of 'Cuntroll' is a close second and its incredibly unique concoction of swirling basses and gargling pulsars adds a wicked futuristic element. Top EP from the Dub Damage crew.

Review: As ever with the fantastic 2TUF4U imprint, we have been gifted with a slice of UKG magnificence, with the illustrious Karl Brown Of Tuff Jam joining us for a super experimental three track piece. From start to finish, this EP really draws off a nostalgic use of dynamics, with tracks having numerous volume switch ups all the way through, beginning with the super choppy drum thumps of 'Intro Special'. Next, we surge into the Klub edit mix of 'So Good', again using crunchy grooves and organ chords to bring a classic garage vibe, before we land on the warm, fuzzy arrangement of 'Get Up'. Following this we dive into the two additions from Dub Jamz , who provides more old school tastings in high tempo drum grooves of 'Unity Theme', before rounding off the project on the chord-heavy progressions of 'I Don't Know.

Review: If you're gonna give your EP a title like that, you'd damn well better HAVE 'da funk' to back it up. Thankfully, Mexican producer Van Pratt most assuredly does. 'Nothing But Funk' itself kicks off the EP, opening with a full-phat bassline before ushering in an 80s boogie-style vocal and some VERY 80s-sounding synth chords. That sets the tone for the rest of the EP, with 'Groove It' marrying white-socked 80s soul vibes to a liquid-y funk geetar line while 'All Night Long' is a straight-up boogie number built for cruising along Ocean Drive with the top pulled down and your Wayfarers on, baby...

"Teardrops" is a glistening oceanic steppy, all spiralling, cosmic and sensual in all the right places, "Space Warp" is the dancefloor bomb of the package with its swooping droning bassline, "Don't Wake Me Up" takes us into shoegazing, head-tickling indie dance territory while "The Touch" closes on a sexy UKG tip that none us would expect from the duo. What an impressive debut collaborative EP statement, we can't wait to hear what's next.

Review: Since first pitching up on Running Back a year or two back, Dec Lennon AKA Krystal Klear has delivered some of his strongest music to date, including a string of peak-time anthems ("Neutron Dance, "Euphoric Dreams" etc). His latest EP for Gerd Janson's label is similarly strong. Check first the trance-influenced, synth-laden throb of "Entre Nous", where big room piano riffs help raise the track to hands-in-the-air anthem status, before admiring the new beat and EBM influenced neo-trance workout "Autobahn". "I'll Be There When You Need Me" is one of Lennon's most saucer-eyed and loved-up tunes to date - all warm waves of synthesizer bliss and decidedly Balearic melodies - while "Gambino" is a cheery skip through 1980s NYC freestyle territory with added Mylo style riffs.

Review: Subwoofah are rolling things out nicely here with a joint four-tracker from Grimesy and Speaker Louis, who manage to combine riotous jungle with more considered tones to great effect. 'It Was' lands more on the side of the former except it smashes out the jump up stabs over a staggered, junglist undercarriage which injects a whole new dynamic of broken, torn energy to create a proper choon. 'What You Do' is a bit more stripped back, a bit more focused on the drum side of things and it works really well, sub-bass stabs abound in the gaps and its all just very sick. Top work you two.

Orchestra Baobab - "Sibou Odia" - (6:38) 125 BPM
Review: We can't praise the Sterns Edits series enough. While the concept is simple - London producer Ben Gomori tweaks cuts from the vast vaults of world music label and distributor Sterns Music - the resultant re-edits are rarely anything less than inspired. On this seventh installment, Gomori initially turns his attention to "Denya" from Djessou Mory Kante's 2014 album "River Strings - Maninka Guitar". Gomori's version is breezy but club-focused, layering Kante's evocative lead guitar and smooth fretless bass atop a gently bouncy Afro-house groove. Arguably even better is his jaunty, life-affirming revision of Senegalese Afro-Cuban band Orchestra Baobab's brilliant but hard to find gem "Sibou Odia", which sees him make merry with punchy horns, glistening guitars and infectious rhythms.

Review: Representing the vibes and history of reggae culture except with a uniquely British urban twist, Agro & Too Greezey drop a five-track testament to his ability as producer here. We've featured his music in the past and every time we do it's a devilish concoction of force and finesse, an amalgamation of ability and acumen. 'Fled The Scene' is as big as it gets, both in terms of its steppy percussion and driving bassline; 'Shot To Bits' reminds of Kings of the Rollers with a bassline that roars out the stops; title tune 'Time Traveller' combines reggae atmospherics with a rolling finesse. Sick EP.

'Jiggy Jiggy reels you in with a lovely intro, its beginnings quickly regressing to a siren-like collection of stabs which exude pure energy in a way that's reminiscent of Kings of the Rollers and insanity more generally. The rest of the release is equally aggressive, 'The Venom' being another highlight with its gargled expressions of bouncing force. Sick release.

Review: Coming in hot on DLR's Sofa Sound, the duo of the moment that is Ill Truth, fresh off the back of their Flexout EP, are landing with a proper stomper. Combining the Sofa Sound mantra of hard hitting, funky beats with their own tendency for low-frequency oscillation, Jay & Haden have smashed this one out the part. The title track features DLR & Gusto and is excellent, but it's on track three 'The Syndicate' that the release hits its peak, as riotous percussion murders its way through bars of pure energy to hit its optimum conclusion. No doubt this one will be getting played a lot across the airwaves.

Kubebe delves deep into lo-slung territory on the mesmerizing groove of "Lagomar", Lithuanian Roe Deers offers up some cut-up classic house shenanigans on "Florida", Wolfstram does deep into the exotic (Disco Halal style) on "Ritual Of Nothing" and Hanzo & Yaman deliver the neon-lit body music of "Supergeil".

Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a brand new album from sometime Classic Music Co contributor Eli Escobar, a producer who has proved to be one of the most distinctive and consistent in house music over the last few years. "Last Summer" contains a mixture of short interludes and inspired, almost uniformly dancefloor-friendly workouts that bring together a range of complimentary influences. Our picks include the atmospheric and acid-fired deep house warmth of "Flashing Lights", the muscular peak-time Moroder-isms of "(All Night) Rhythm", the melodious, sun-kissed Balearic house brilliance of "Blu" and the woozy warmth of "Last Night".

Serenade To The Sunrise - (3:14) 123 BPM
Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: A reissue here for a sought-after Italo-disco classic from way back in 1983, as UTC Limited serve up two tracks that originally featured on the Orchestra Charles Brissot's one and only long-player 'Running For Fun'. 'Second Galaxis' owes a major debt of inspiration to Space's 'Magic Fly' from a decade earlier, being centred around a very similar-sounding plinky-plonky analogue synth riff (as well as some startlingly acid-like burbles), while 'Serenade To The Sunrise' is a gloriously cheesy affair with synthesized strings taking the lead - were The Love Boat ever to take off into outer space, this is what'd be playing in the ballroom!

Review: Next up on Lost Palms is 1-800 Girls aka Jake Stewart. Dancing is an atmospheric affair that is sure to appeal to fans of more esoteric techno. "3am Central Line" opens the release with a gentle, stepping groove and squelchy acid lines, while in a similar style is "Latin Tongue": the 303s have been replaced with breathy, billowing synths, but the punchy drums remain. On "Don't Wanna Stop", Stewart ups the tempo to deliver rolling break beats, but they deliver jazzy keys, while the EP concludes with "Minds Nature", an evocative piece of music that has echoes of 90s ambient.

Next, we take a peek at the Terror mix of Odiham from Avernian, another stuttered masterclass in rhythmic ideas and funky influence, before the smoothened breakbeat themes of 'Vivid Dream Of Death' from Young Muscle brings us to a close.

The best of 2019 compilation sees epic tales in trance come from Artic Moon with a refined strand of progressive beats and vocals in "Cool In My Disaster", with a similar vibe also heard on Jameson Tuller's "Black & White". Roman Messer turns in an uplifting number via "Dreaming" - the title suggesting enough - while Above & Beyond deliver the goods with the epic "Show Me Your Love". Ferry Corsten too makes an appearance with the star-gazing and emotional distorted "Surga", with AvB's marching cut "Turn It Up" a classic for peak time DJs everywhere.

Into Your Life (Danny Kane remix) - (5:49) 125 BPM
Played by: Chuggin Edits
Review: This two-tracker from Midnight Riot has all the makings of a future disco-house anthem. It comes courtesy of label regular Natasha Kitty Katt, imprint big cheese Yam Who and vocalist Jacqui George. In its EP-opening "Gospeldelic Mix" form, "Into Your Life" is a rushing fusion of rolling house grooves, spacey synth solos, jangling gospel house pianos and a stunning lead vocal from George that should get the hairs on the back of your next leaping heavenwards. Danny Kane handles remix duties, offering a slicker and smoother interpretation that sits somewhere between nu-disco (check the squidgy new synth parts), soulful house and bouncy disco-house. Like the version that preceded it, Kane's mix is a genuine winter warmer.

Review: Cru-Cast is the music platform that has rapidly expanded into the world of events, with a focus on raucous basslines across bassline, D&B and more, it's been shelling venues up and down the UK for a couple of years now. The label side is part of the same offensive and Bru-C is the soldier in command today, a grime MC who can flip between genres easier than more, a skill he shows off here on his debut LP Original Sounds. 'Snakes & Ladders' featuring Bou and Ella Knight is a highlight for sure, as the potent Bou maintains his usual prowess but this time on a lighter tip, Ella's vocals coming into play in a sick way and Bru-C's bars tying the whole thing together a flourish. Skepsis makes an appearance, as do Jamie Duggan, Chromatic, Simula and more.

Review: Guidance remain in full control this year as yet another powerful EP from Ulterior Motive's label lands. This time it's from Was A Be, no longer signed to Shogun and now just a solo act, it's another bold statement. "Passive Aggressive" takes the lead with, ironically, no passivity whatsoever. Subverting a ravey riff over a real growler of a bassline, it's another certy stinker from Italian stallion. It's back by three more gully blunderbusses: "Mirrored" (with Visages) strips things back and drags us down the bassline sewer with one of the grumpiest basslines you'll hear all season, "Shell" follows suit with more low-end toxicity and a sweet roll to the drums while "Double Tap" takes the Was A Be to some pretty cosmic, warped places. Last but not least we have the dramatic "Blue Roots" where more of a techno influence can be felt in the pulsating bassline. Immense.

He never holds back and this release on Ten Ton Beats is definitely not close to being more restrained, with Dec James experimenting with across several different styles and textures. 'Skyline' is interesting, with hypnotic stabs making up the main arrangement in a stripped back roller. Check these out to hear something properly wicked.

By contrast, Heerhorst's "Prisma" is a widescreen affair, the German producer's swirling synths underpinned by an ominous groove. Rounding off another volume of this series is Timid Boy from France, whose "Oniris" is an evocative slice of tranced out club techno.

Review: Uncovered is a three-part series that shines a light on unreleased tracks from Peter Van Hoesen's archives from a ten-year period, commencing in 2008. What may surprise fans of his kinetic warehouse techno is that the respected producer is also adept at creating slowed-down electronic pieces, audible here on "Editsolopunchin19 " and "Rosegarden Funeral Of Sores", the latter featuring Jacques Trenson's muddy vocals. There are other unexpected delights on this volume, such as the droning "Merely A Mirage", while "Slowdisto" bathes in a glitchy hue. At the same time, this collection does remind the listener of Van Hoesen's dance floor prowess and both "Exor1" and "Gadarene Rush" contain vivid sketches that form the basis of his distinctive techno sound.

Review: It has taken Dennis van Gemert aka Area Forty One three years to release the third instalment of the Nocturnal Passions series, but it was worth the wait. The title track casts a hypnotic spell thanks to its rumbling bass and rickety drums that support chilling melodies. Meanwhile on "Supernova", van Gemert adds tight electro drums to the equation. "Desolated Grounds" is a bleak affair with acrid tones squeezed from a 303 and then fused with frosty melodies, while the latest iteration from this singular project concludes with a more dance floor focused track in the form of the pared back "G-832C".

However, this re-release does include a series of remixes that lend it a contemporary context. First up is Drumcode producer Rebuke with a restless minimal techno version that twists and turns the original 303 line into new shapes. Mall Grab opts for a straight, banging techno take, with only the 'acieeed' clarion call remaining. Nathan Micay drops a pulsating, high-paced version, while best of all, edit king Serge Santiago drops an electronic disco-led version, where the 303s are tweaked to the max.

Just check out 'Break', with a classic vibe you'll instantly recognise and a bassline that'll shudder your bones, it's a neat exemplification of the rip-roaring approach that's been attempted here. The other tunes don't disappoint either, with sick atmospherics on 'Relic' and a feature from Dsy on 'Dangerous'. Big EP.

Rescue Me (Joey Negro's In full Swing mix) - (7:32) 124 BPM
Review: Around the turn of the millennium, experienced production partnership Eric Wilkman and James Donaldson released a handful of fine EPs as Sunkids, including a pair of solid singles featuring vocalist Chance. The first of these was 1999's "Rescue Me", a soulful and intoxicating number that remains one of the most memorable vocal house records of the period. Here the 20 year-old track gets a new lease of life thanks to remix maestro Dave Lee AKA Joey Negro. His version mixes warm new instrumentation - bass, Rhodes chords, jangling piano stabs, spacey synths and so on - with Chance's original vocal and the kind of loose, skipping beats that were once the hallmark of US garage. As a result, "Rescue Me" sounds more delicious and floor-friendly than it has ever done before.

Review: In a reggae laden expression of the stylistic backing behind Jungle Cakes, Deekline & Ed Solo are teaming up with Specimen A and renowned MC Blackout JA. 'Let The Music Play' rolls out with all the intent of four artists who know exactly how to blend dub-infused tones with a rolling 170 beat, as they have done many times the past. This time is well-trodden ground for them, but the shimmering brass notes and funky vocal lines don't sound any less wicked. There's a B-side which takes things a bit heavier on some VIP business, rounding out the single well.

Night Bass & BIJOU - "Used 2 This" (feat Yank$) - (3:54) 126 BPM
Review: Wow, what a run it has been for the Night Bass team who hear touch down with their one hundredth official release, celebrating one of the most exceptional catalogues within the entire bass music spectrum. They have pulled together an exquisite line up for this one, featuring a tonne of high end names, including founder AC Slater alongside Chris Lorenzo, Flava D, Shift K3y, Jack Beats and more. For us there are a couple of clear stand outs on this one, the first of which has to be the long awaited release of Taiki Nulight and Dread Mc's bassy roller: 'Kush'. We also love the smooth subby bops of Sinden's 'Work That', along with the incredibly unique drum work of 'Ugly' from Petey Clicks.

Here We Go Now (feat MC G1) - (5:41) 175 BPM
Played by: S Man
Review: There's no doubting the fact that there's been a distinctive stylistic movement within D&B in the past couple of years, a noticeable strand of the scene that's cultivated a particular style of sharp-edged yet rough rollers. Kings of the Rollers are the obvious example, but S Man is landing in a similar vein here with a fiery four-tracker than hits hard, seriously hard. 'Lucifer' exemplifies the bare-bones approach taken here and its works well and its gargantuan main bassline reverberates across the range with the desired effect. 'Bronson' and 'Be Right Now!!' both keep up the good work with their focus on sonic polemics and percussive bounce. Excellent.

Mountains & Waterfalls (radio edit) - (4:45) 118 BPM
Review: As you'd expect, there's plenty to set the pulse racing on this second selection of remixes of tracks from A Man Called Adam's inspired comeback album, "Farmarama". Aleksandir sets the tone by channeling the spirit of Floating Points' early deep house works on a deliciously fluid, dreamy and emotion-rich remix of "Higher Powers", before joining forces with A Man Called Adam on an "Edit" of the same track that's a little sunnier, breezier and more Balearic in tone. A Man Called Adam offer up their own "Low Cal Dub" of "Michael" that wraps trippy, dubbed-out electronic elements and head-mangling, acid-style electronics around a constantly shifting up, while the "Radio Edit" of "Mountains and Waterfalls" is a breezy, Latin-tinged chunk of springtime Balearic house brilliance.

Turn Away (Picklejam's Party Line) - (6:08) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: After first impressing on Hot Digits with 2018's "Gettin' Loose EP", Steve Cooper once more dons the Down Under Disco alias with a rock solid sequel. He begins in confident fashion via "Turn Away", a warm and groovy cut that sits somewhere between deep house and loopy disco-house, before offering up the bold and bass-heavy "Sonny Jim", where woozy organ chords and glistening disco guitar licks rise above a pleasingly saucer-eyed groove. "Get Down" is an energetic, trippy and low-slung chunk of peak-time disco-house headiness, "Everybody Lose Control" cleverly combines stargazing synth lines with UK funky style bass and bouncy house beats, and PickleJam's "Party Line" remix of "Turn Away" is a sparkling fusion of bouncy electro beats and slick nu-disco musicality.

Rue De Siam - (4:37) 90 BPM
Review: French nu-jazz and electro-swing veteran Pascal Houpert, better known as Minimatic, returns to the Tour Eiffel label with this five-track EP. 'Doo Ding' comes on like electro-swing via Ninja Tune, the rap-vocalled 'Jump Down Flute' will please the backpackers and b-boys, 'Cinammon Song' is a more sedate affair that'd slot neatly into Balearic/downtempo sets, 'The Whistler' is a lively lil' workout for the jazz-dancers, and 'Rue De Siam' plays us out on a mournful, torch-y note. Throughout, Houpert's liberal use of loops and scratches injects a more contemporary danceloor energy that saves these tracks from being mere pastiche.

Review: We were rather astonished to discover that "24/7 Love Affair" is Michael Baumann's first album as Soulphiction for 11 years. We were a little less surprised to find that it's superb. In fact, we'd go as far as to say that it could be considered a "best practice" example of the kind of loose, sample-heavy, soul-fired deep house that is all the rage right now. Yet the album's epic length - it comprises no less than 17 tracks - also allows Baumann to mix it up a little too, with a swathe of ocean-deep club jams being joined by search diversions as the morning-fresh broken beat loveliness of "Jus Listen", the stomping disco-funk of "The Mood", the bustling breakbeats of "A Freak" and the blazed instrumental hip-hop of "Good Night Ema".

Review: It's time to get dubby as Digital Monk lands on Dubstep Rotterdam for a delicious two track excursion, kicking off with the melodic blows and spacey arrangements of 'Fire Season', which combines original steppers vibes with futuristic dubstep production methods in infinite majesty. The whole set up takes a more systematic turn next as 'Liberation' arrives with an incredibly potent sub-line, combining big room bass tones, catchy toasted vocals and minimal drum work to provide a perfect contrast to the A-side. Delicious!

Review: Deep In The Jungle Records is a UK jungle imprint that have been making bigger and bigger waves over the past several years, a big part of which is their affinity for fat compilations that straddle numerous sub-genre boundaries and which represent lots of different artists. This next one is about classics and it features artists like Conrad Subs, Kumarachi, DJ Hybrid, Kartoon and more. Conrad Subs is a favourite of ours and his cut, Takeover, is a wicked, deep rolling piece of work that packs a sick bassline, one which makes you think of late-night raving at its finest. This is a top compilation from a star label of the new wave.
