Ramiro Lopez - Chunky Cattish EP - (Suara)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
Ramiro Lopez returns to Suara with an EP that is is a cheeky, triple track, chunky monkey. ‘Fine’ is a fiery vocal tech houser that throws a molotov to the middle of the dancefloor. ‘Noir’ is a blindfold in the dark and helter skelter affair with voices to attract you closer to the edge or to safety? Who can tell? ‘Tolder’ is a steady stepper, stripped down for simplicity and stacked up like a cruise liner in stealth mode. Banging. 3 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette     {http://sound...

Various Artists - 5 Years Of Gruuv EP 2 - (Gruuv)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 Compilations
Audiojack and his kind team have lovingly curated a six EP set of previously unreleased deep and tech house treasures. As a compilation it appears in two parts simply labelled ‘Day’ and ‘Night’ and over two cds features 24 djs/ producers from 10 different coutries. So what about this EP then? Gorge, Waifs & Strays deliver a disco ball spinning, rhythmic roller called ‘Beat On The Drums’, Julian Chaptal is a whippoorwhill prompted, stripped down tech groove that digs in deeper than a meerkat ...

Enzo Siffredi - Sometimes EP - (DFTD)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
Enzo Siffredi, the brains behind Minimal Kidz and Wired, delivers a jolly, jump up triple track EP or DFTD that will whip any dancefloor up like an industrial gyroscope. ‘Sometimes’ is a blues soaked, playground clapping game reminiscent, percussive roller that grooves fabulously from start to finish. ‘People’ has a three note bassline, that much like a giant’s braces, twangs confidently throughout. There’s a rap vocal break just to bring you back into the monotoned game and that’s the way we da...

Doorly - Come On Man EP - (Cajual)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
Doorly, unarguably, one of the busiest men in house music returns with a banging EP for Cajual. Doorly and Dajae’s ‘It’s All About the Music Man’s razors Dajae’s vocal into a jagged edged and sometimes soaring decoration on a low end, parping, old skool click track. Step to it, your mix will rock to this. Then it’s all about the ‘Scoobidoobidoobidoobidooom-ah’ and ‘here we go again’ ‘let’s do this’ ‘it’s about the music man’ and ‘get on down and partay’ with some rave breaks, frogs and crickets,...

Various Artists - Poesie Quartett Vol. 1 - (Poesie Musik)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 Compilations
Sister label to Get Physical, Poesie Musik, releases a four track ep of quality remixes to delight your ears and stimulate your senses. Niklas Ibach takes Junge Junge’s folk house reverie ‘Beautiful Girl’ to create a bass heavy, reverse looped groover. My personal favourite, Ferdinand Dreyssig and Marvin Hey’s remix of Fabio Giannelli’s ‘Cherish’ is a tech house terror so tasty that it would make a wolf’s fangs shimmer and glint in the moonlight. You want to take as many chunks out of it as it t...

Nils Hoffmann - Rivers Ft. Chloe - (Poesie Musik)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
If you like dark, indie rock powered tech house then Nils Hoffman’s ‘Rivers’ will take you on a white water rapids ride through your daydreams and night fantasies. Its insistent beats pound your feet like a tendon tenderiser, the 80s throwback synths swirl around Chloe’s fragile vocal and a plaintiff guitar keeps the off-beat time in the background. Think Depeche Mode with a featherlight female touch. The Fat Sushi remix is calmer, looped affair with subdued yet uplifting synth horns at play, wh...

Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine (Lido Remix) - (Ultra)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
Bill Withers’ soul classic ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ has been given the royal electronic rewiring by one of my favourite Austrian’s, Lido. Much like his EP and Banks remix of 2014, it’s a theatrical, show-stopping affair with its tick-tocking heart firmly beating in the dubstep world and the vocal and finger snapping parts firmly ensconced in and enriching the soul. I liked this so much I closed my Paulette Goes Bang radio show with it last week. Gorgeous piece of music made all the more fresh by the ...

Eli & Fur - Your Eyes - (NYX)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
Tough beats and sweet vocals are the signature for Eli and Fur, the UK’s freshest female duo’s new release ‘Your Eyes’. It’s a radio friendly, commercial house outing that evolves via pitched down vocals, dark, parping, synth pads and washes to give it a deeper, more emotional feel. Shades of Solomun, Bashmore and Hot Since 82 drift in and out of the production and it’s all good. Very appealing, easy on the ear and a cool end of the night track. 3 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette...

Art Department - fabric 82 – (fabric)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 Albums
Not only do Art Department continue with the quest of delivering perfect formed, forward thinking music but this mix/ compilation also represents the departure of Kenny Glasgow to pursue a solo career. So, with Jonny White now flying solo at the controls you can still expect the familiar invigorating quality from number 82 in the sequence that touches upon music produced by the likes of: Mr G ‘Hip Flexer’, Rick Wade ‘Wired’ and not surprisingly Art Department’s own (feat. Seth Troxler) ‘Cruel In...

Various Artists - 5 Years Of Gruuv – (Gruuv)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 Compilations
Number two in the series to celebrate Audiojack’s Gruvv imprints five years in existence sounds like four more good reasons to party. Gorge opens with an infectious bassline driven ‘Square Wave Romance’, while the equally addictive ‘Beat on the Drums’ by Waifs & Strays pounds its way blissfully across the stereo, eventually fuelling a disco inspired fire of instruments. Julien Chaptal feat. Juliana comes next with ‘Number 4’ challenging the sequence with more probing, melodic bass providing ...

Aphrohead - Let's Prance – (Crosstown Rebels)

Thursday, 11 June 2015 House
Been itching to review this for a while now as the words Felix 'Da Housecat', Aphrohead and Crosstown Rebels fit neatly into one beautiful package. Ahead of a forthcoming album is this single which demonstrates just why the artist has remained a force to be reckoned with after all these years. ‘Let's Prance’ is of course a devilishly funky groove that isn’t afraid to get playful with its punchy drum heavy arrangement, odd voices and infectious bassline. Art Department & BLUD provide an excel...

Josh Hussaney - Come On Down (Foreign Language Records)

Friday, 05 June 2015 House
Anyone who knows Josh Hussaney’s work knows that he’s not ones for messing around when it comes to crafting scrupulous tech-house for the masses. On the contrary, the British native appears to be an expert at conjuring up such sounds, which perhaps goes some way to explaining just why he’s already being touted for great things in influential circles. For his most recent foray into the scene, he delivers the goods on the Foreign Language imprint, itself a label where clued-in vibes are very much ...

Metrophonique - Blue Moon EP (Cat for Lunch)

Friday, 05 June 2015 House
Metrophonique is an Italian duo that run the brilliantly titled Cat For Lunch label, an imprint that tends to  veer towards the classier side of the tech house spectrum. Their latest sees them return to their home label for another EP that emphasises their credentials with some panache. Entitled the Blue Moon EP, it sees the boys perk up with 3 originals, each one as intriguing and buoyant as the next. The title-track is a case in point. The sort of tech house fodder that’d delight names su...

OdD - Cosmic Energy (Sol Asylum)

Friday, 05 June 2015 House
OdD is a London duo with a sound palette that’s strictly discerning, so it’s of no real surprise to hear that it was them who helped launched  the Sol Asylum label some time back. Julie Marghilano’s label has grown from strength-to-strength in that time thanks to a concoction of deep and tech-fueled flavours, and OdD’s latest duly lies in the middle of both somewhere. Either way, it’s a tantalising affair from start to finish. The three-trackers gets going thanks to the whimsical sounds of ...

Tommy Vee ft. Marc Evans & Sheree Hicks - 'Inside The Groove' (incl. Luca Guerrieri and Pezzner Remixes) (Rise Records)

Thursday, 04 June 2015 House
Italian Producer/ DJ Tommy Vee enlists the help of soulful vocalists Marc Evans and Sheree Hicks, who together deliver an absolute bomb release! Dripping with soulfulness from every piano chord, the bassline glides through the track, backed by a Chicago-meets NY House groove and lead by some serious POWAH vocals from Marc and Sheree. Taking the track to the peak time dance floors is fellow Italian and man of the moment, Luca Guerrieri, who combines the vocals with moody synths and power bas...

Vanni & Fav - 'Are You Dancing?' (Favouritizm)

Thursday, 04 June 2015 House
Production duo Vanni & Fav follow up their debut disco-pop single 'Stretch and Flex' with another 80's fused helping of synthology on their new single 'Are You Dancing?' Available in two flavours for the dance-floor, the pair dig out the Casio and deliver a monster slice of electronic disco, armed with an incessantly catchy synth hook. Showcasing their diverse ability to embrace all forms of music production, they cook up a feel-good, sophisticated Deep House version with a very distinctive ...

Will Dawson - 'Forever' (Big Lucky Music)

Thursday, 04 June 2015 House
Brighton's Will Dawson makes a welcome return with an incredibly catchy new single ‘Forever’ on his Big Lucky Music label. 'Forever' is a cross- pollination of heartfelt RnB style vocals and Disco-boogie musicality, using vintage Analog synths to create fresh new sounds. Armed with a bumping power-bass and backed with 90's beats to work the floor there is a gorgeous vocal performance from Jazz vocalist Clementine Douglas. This is a seriously groovy slab of Soulful House!4/5 Ratha Gud...

Ramon Tapia - 'True Definition EP' (I’m A House Gangster)

Thursday, 04 June 2015 House
‘True Definition EP’ hails the 3rd release on I’m A House Gangster for the hugely popular Belgium based DJ/Producer Ramon Tapia. The title track is an uplifting, giant dance-floor hug, where warm melodic loops interweave with an infectious House groove. ‘True Definition’ also comes with a tasty re-rub from IAHG’s captain who gets busy with his Sneakology beat science. ‘Motion’ is an energetic driving groove with a Latin tinged undercurrent, bound with a contagious bumping bass, quirky hooks and ...
