Venter - Lost EP - (Catch Recordings)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Forthcoming on Catch Recordings, Lost is the exquisite three piece EP from Polish production duo Venter who now join the ranks alongside Rob Barker, Bobby O'Donnell, Doubtingthomas and Khristian K. Lost opens with the title track which immediately grabs your attention through complex hi hat rhythms and an echoing scream build before launching into the soft thuds of deep kick drums. Through horn infused pads, trippy arpeggiated chords and soaring melodies this track progresses towards something ...

JackLNDN - All I See - (Ultra Music)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
JackLNDN is a producer who has been turning many heads recently. He manages to make underground sounds as well as more popular remixes and edits that straddle the divide. Now he is back with a scorching one track affair on the Ultra Music label. Entitled All I See, Jack’s production chops really shine through from the bottom to the top. Built on punchy rubbery drums, it has a real summery feel to it, with feel good vocals and sun kissed chords all filled with the joys of a day at the park. A car...

Onno - Some Mo - (Upon You)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Onno has long been touted as a producer of some nous amongst those in the know, so it’s no real surprise that their latest has found a home on Upon You, an imprint with a penchant for classy sounds. For their most recent release, the Dutch producer serves up another cracking EP that only emphasizes this standing. Uncompromising and unfussy, this is an EP that earns its stripes thanks to its heady and intoxicating take on house. The title-track, Some Mo, might be deceivingly simple in structure, ...

Luuk van Dijk - Body EP - (Roush)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
In next to no time, Spanish label Roush has burst out of nowhere and fast became one of the country’s most respected purveyors of clued-in and out-there house music. Their raison d’etre revolved – and continues to revolve – around unlikely sound combinations, and it’s a method of working that’s served them with some distinction over the years. The label’s latest labour of love is an EP from Luuk van Dijk, an up-and-coming producer from Holland with a sound palette that’s perfectly suited to the ...

Vesta ft Heather Melgram - Neon Heart - (Flak Records)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Well here’s something very interesting indeed. It’s by Vesta, a Leeds producer who just arrived on our radar. If you’ve yet to check in with this eclectic maestro, then be sure too soon, for his is a veritable talent that’s not lacking in the emotive stakes. A producer of sounds that are as rich as they are varied and as eclectic as they are catchy on the ear, Vesta is the sort of man for whom genre tags really don’t mean a thing. Unpretentious in his approach to his craft he’s the sort of prope...

Eats Everything, Tiga & Audion - Let's Go Dancing Again (Eats Everything Remix) - (Method White)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Every time I heard Justin Martin play this record at Space Ibiza, at Ibiza Rocks at Pacha or just anywhere I always tried to get him to give me a copy. My womanly wiles did not produce any fruit. Justin was not to be parted with this. And understandably so. This is the perfect secret weapon, it breathes, it struts, it stomps, it postures, it chugs like a steam train through a shadowy vocal landscape. And now … IT’S ALL MINE. Ha. It is well worth the year long wait. Buy it. Hammer it. Love it. To...

Dusky - Ordinary World EP - (17 Steps)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
I recently reviewed the club bouncer ‘Skin Deep’ for these pages so imagine my delight at finding a further three prime cuts of sinewy, edgy, nu-house available and bundled up together with the bright and bouncy ‘Skin Deep’ as the ‘Ordinary World EP’. ‘Jilted’ is a monotone, synth-powered AK47 with ethereal vocals to lighten the tone. ‘Parakeet Feet’ is a go hard or go home slab of opaque, looped techno with a throbbing, anti-gravity pull so powerful it’ll nail you to the ceiling and chinks of l...

Robin Schulz Ft. Francesco Yates - Sugar - (Warner / Big Beat)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Folk house sounds better with nu house wunderkind Robun Schulz. ‘Sugar’ is a lazy guitar strummed, and slide guitar decorated pop song with a fatal ‘sugar, how you get so fly ?’ lyrical hook that’ll snag you from the cheek up to the gills. It’s another hit. Make no mistake. 4 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette     ...

Ciara - Ride (Braxton Remix) - (Hear This Promo)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Maybe it’s the heat? Maybe I’m on heat? Whatever the reason, my ears have been seduced by a sexy slab of nu-house, baby-making music. Braxton has the keys for Ciara’s ‘Ride’ and reworks it into a smooth rolling, tease and sleaze heavy breather, sorry, big bass-heavy growler. The snipped intro vocals are semi-orgasmic, then the bass blows over the vocals like a ghost ship over the horizon, then the beat drops and it’s a dance off that will have you dropping to levels you’d forgotten you knew how ...

Amy Winehouse - Love Is A Losing Game (Nehzuil Remix) - (Hear This Promo)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
When a record and a remix touches you deeply enough to make your emotions run as tears from the right eye – you know that despite the loss of such a beautiful talent as Amy Winehouse’s, Nehzuil’s tribute-cum-remix : dense as jazz club cigar smoke and enriched with tinkling, sparkling ivories is a hats in the air success. Baby making music. 4 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette     ...

Pablo Del Monte - Glide Over Here

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
New labels burst on to the scene all the time - but few of them tend to last the distance. One such label that definitely does seem to have the nous to go some distance is East Recordings, a new label with a sound palette that’s firmly pointed in the direction of tech-house planes. Their first two releases (the last of which came from label boss Pablo Del Monte) were indicative of their penchant for such sounds, and Pablo himself comes to the fore on the label’s latest, ‘’Glide Over Here’’. A cr...

Luc Ringesen - Hertzfled - (Puas Puas)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
When it comes to electronic music, Luxembourg isn’t exactly renowned as a European stronghold. Even so, Luc Ringeisen is a DJ/producer from the country who’s starting to make great waves on the international scene. Considering he runs the Vinyl Club label and is also a resident at Berlin’s Club der Visionaire label, his credentials are impressive enough. On the Hertzfeld EP for the Vinyl Club label, he comes up trumps once more, this time thanks to a four-tracker that’s notable for its many off...

Deeplastik - Crossroad EP

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
Producers clatering their sound is nothing new in dance music, but it’s still rare that they’re able to do so with such ease and gusto. Deeplastik, quite clearly, is not your average producer. Despite spending an extensive time in the breaks scene, he crops up here on his Dichotomic label for a release that’s more progressive and house-centric than it is breaks oriented. Mind you, that’s no bad thing, as this is a release that’s sure to be rapturously received wherever it’s allowed to roam free....

2up - Many Colours - (Sounds of Earth)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
No longer the hidden gem of sorts of old, Mexico has been busy churning out top-grade house and techno talent for some time now. The latest such individual to arrive on our senses from that perspective is 2UP, a producer who - on this evidence at least - would appear to have a big future ahead of him. He comes out of the blocks here with the stunning Many Colors, a collaborative effort that sees him work alongside the vocalist Velika on a hearty, spirited effort that does no harm to the reputati...

Jill Bellac is a producer who is very much on the rise. For years he has been toiling away releasing tracks on lots of top labels like South American Sounds, Stereo Seven Plus, Echoes Records, ADS Records, to name a few.He is inspired by the likes of Carl Cox and Sven Vath and often finds himself in the Beatport chart . Here he serves up one solo track and one alongside ASI on the excellent Opia Records abel and both are pure fire. The first is a squelchy, stripped back bit of rolling minimal t...

Tronik Youth - Youth Is Wasted On The Young - (Nein Records)

Friday, 31 July 2015 Albums
Tronik Youth presents his debut album ‘Youth Is Wasted On The Young’ featuring eleven original tracks of dark pulsating electronic music. This debut album is a love letter to the music that he has lived, loved and played, a soundtrack of a fanatic’s life, a message from an artist stamping out his blue print of how modern underground electronic music should sound. Recorded over a year in Tronik Youth’s home studio, the album in parts subconsciously emerges themes of travel and religion, from the...

Rufus Miller - 'Freedom' - (Favouritizm)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
So who is this mysterious Rufus Miller chap from the UK who has been gracing us with his various House music ditties of late? Actually it doesn't really matter, as his brand new slab 'Freedom' is being unleashed just in time to tear the Ibiza terraces apart and it's HAWT! Primed with delicious arpeggios, old school beats and a euphoric Soulful vocal that gives way to a goose bump inducing (American Beauty-esque) piano breakdown, before exploding into a giant House frenzy! Go Rufus, thingumybob, ...

Christian B & Lavvy Levan - 'Vigour (I Need You)' - (Friday Fox Recordings)

Friday, 31 July 2015 House
This fab duo keep the dance floors well oiled this Summer with their new bass driven bomb, 'Vigour (I Need You)'. Waxing lyrical to the sound of a beautifully crafted melancholic deep groove that's besieged by an intoxicating bass hook (it's BIG!), 'Vigour' sees Lavvy tell the heavy hearted story of how it feels once that connection with someone is gone.. Love and bass, what more do you need?!. 4 out of 5 Reviewed by Ratha Gud...

JD73 - 'Make Your Move' - (Splash Music Productions)

Friday, 31 July 2015 Albums
‘Make You Move’ is the third and fabulous new album from Dan Goldman aka JD73. Loaded with smooth grooves executed to the highest level of production and musicianship, this album beautifully joins the dots between Jazz, Soul, Funk, Disco and Electronica. From the gospel-funk-infused grooves of the opening title track, the sweet Neo-Soul outing ‘Gimme A Chance’ ft. Harriet Soulstress, the feel-good Jazz-Funk fuelled ‘What You Got’ ft. Miss Modest, through to the irresistible soulful tones of Pete...

Various Artists - All Gone Pete Tong & Hot Since 82 Ibiza 2015 - (ITH)

Thursday, 23 July 2015 Compilations
Pete Tong’s annual onceover of Ibiza is all the more effective because he does it in tandem with one of the big names of the year – and this time he’s struck gold with Hot Since 82. Described by Tong as ‘one of the most exciting underground electronic talents to emerge from the UK over the past five years’, the Yorkshireman includes a good deal of music from his Knee Deep in Sound label, including his own ‘State’ to wrap things up. It’s well paced and really well mixed, peaking around Deelo’s ‘M...
