L.cats - (4:52) 87 BPM
Review: Rhode Island-based Katakana Edits bring us the 98th installment in this long-running series, and once more we're in the hands of Morlack, who's contributed no fewer than 14 previous volumes. The French DJ/producer has dug pretty deep for source material: 'Cali Style' bites Eddy Grant's 'California Style', the Jimmy Castor Bunch's 1975 novelty funker 'King Kong' gets a light-touch refix and 'L.Cats' gives The Cure an unexpected breakbeat makeover, but that's about as much as we can tell you! The rest of the EP draws on unidentified soul, funk and boogie nuggets, many of them with non-Anglophone vocals.

Review: Strut's archival remit remains as international as ever, with their latest compilation squaring the focus on late '70s Hawaii on the delightful Aloha Got Soul: Soul AOR & Disco In Hawai'i 1979-1985. Across the backdrop of societal change on the island (statehood into America in '59 and the Vietnam War) Hawaiian youth found inspiration in the music of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and later Earth Wind & Fire leading to a truly vibrant scene by the mid-'70s. It's after this where Strut pick up the story, bringing together a glorious 16 track collection that spans the genres and suggests Hawaii to be a most fertile location for music during this era. Do take some time to check the detailed sleeve notes from Aloha Got Soul's Roger Bong which offer further context for the music!

Scuba - "Tense" (DBridge remix) - (5:25) 85 BPM
Review: The third instalment of Hotflush's compilation series drops and it's a seven year flashback to the label's most fractured, far-minded roots as Scuba's label explores their foundations on the fringes of bass and left sided echelons of dubstep. Cuts like Jamie Vex'd's almost p-funk level of bullishness on "Twitch", the loose jazz drums of Elemental's "Sparkle", even looser jazz horns of Jazzsteppa's still-filthy "Two" and Si Begg's baggy, bulbous rhythm on "Angel" represent Hotflush's consistent surges past the very forefront of the once-burgeoning genre, joining the dots and helping make sense of the stern techno cityscapes the label constructs today.

Sparkle (Dave Allison remix) - (5:53) 107 BPM
Review: Liquid Pegasus's synth-funk focused 2016 debut album "What I Actually Do" was so good that many expected him to become a major force in the growing nu-boogie scene. His career seems to have stalled since then, with this outing on Clandestine Boogie marking his first outing in almost two years. It's a vibrant, colourful and sun-kissed affair that regularly reaches rush-inducing levels of positivity. Check the meandering synth-bass, sparkling stabs and eyes-closed jazz guitar solos of "Makin' It Hot". "Sparkle" is deeper, more laidback and a touch more disco-fied, with Dave Allison upping the tempo a little while increasing the Balearic factor on his accompanying remix. Matt Hughes' tidy take on "Makin' It Hot" is arguably sturdier and more club-ready than Liquid Pegasus' original version.

Hived - (3:46) 88 BPM
Review: Former Evangelista member Dominic Cramp first made waves as Lord Tang with 2012's Hello, an eccentric but inspired debut album of quirky electronica on Gigante Sound. Butterflies is his first album since, following a couple of dub influenced 12" singles, and contains 12 more hard-to-pigeonhole explorations. Occasionally dreamy, sometimes sparse, and often odd, Cramp's tracks draw influence from many styles and artists - experimental electronica, drone, dub, Autechre, the Radiophonic Workshop, grime, Chris Watson style field recordings and deep space ambient - but always sound distinctive. This spacey, weird and trippy sound soup more often than not results in thrilling music, making Butterflies an exciting proposition.
