Armed and dangerous with 4 giant bullets, 'Moody Warehouse Music Vol 1' opens with the steamy Latin house flavoured 'Going Get Got', featuring an infectious "Gonna make you hot…" vocal hook over a feel good filtered groove.

Bo Saris - She's On Fire - (Deram)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
Every now and then I hear a record that stops me dead in my tracks like a beagle when it’s got that scent of ‘Eau de fox’. This is onesuch foxy track. If you like Pharrell, Sam Smith, Lewis Taylor, Maverick Sabre and that ilk of male soulful vocalists then this one if most certainl for you. Avenue deliver the straight up radio mix with a funky, squashy late 7às / 80s sounding electro soul workout that is bound for non stop, global radio rotation. On the club side, Wankelmut rewires the r n b sou...

The Ting Tings - The Wrong Club (Club Mix By The Super Criticals) - (Promo)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
The Ting Tings return with a fresh and fizzy glass completely full of acerbic pop attitude (I’m in the wrong club listening to this shit) and slow mo disco pop swagger. Starting with a bassline that walks the same disco funk line as the one that The Police used in ‘Bring On The Night’ it builds via the vocals into a sweltering sweat box of Phoenix sounding lyrical parries and Nile Rodgers-esque strummed guitars. It’s familiar and lovely and will soundtrack a million summers no matter what. 4 ou...

Little Dragon - Paris - (Because Music)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
Little Dragon return with this glorious slice of death disco punk funk. The vocal is catchier than mumps, measles and rubella in Infant 4 whilst the bassline, stuttering keys and foundry sounding metallic effects will stick in your head like chewing gum does in your hair after a long, hard night out on the last. Totally Extinct Enormous Dinosaurs build a grating tech house structure that revolves around the irritated french girl saying ‘oh my god it’s green the fire, go !’. Excellent stuff all r...

Otto Knows - Parachute - (Refune)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
Anyone who remembers ‘ A Million Voices’ will know that Otto Knows has a sly and unrepentant way with a catchy tune and ‘Parachute’ sees that skill develop so much further. This time, Otto takes the peak time podium as the jump off, then twists it with a hard rocking, guitar grunge arrangement that tears your body limb from limb. The male lyric suspends you in a world of perfect pop then the sparse vocal, strummed guitars and swelling synth pads provide the parachute that brings you back to eart...

Kayper - Someone - (Spinnin Deep)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
Kayper returns with a sexy rolling deep house groove that you know you are going to hear blazing out of cars, bars, parties and speakers all summer. Xylophone keys, a percolating bass, a snipped and clipped r n b vocal and trickling vibes mix and blend to create a dance floor firestarter that more than earns its place in the A-list usb sticks and compilations that matter. Did I say that Kayper was a woman ? Does it matter ? Respect is due whatever. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette {http://soun...

Semedo - Gonna Leave You - (Promo)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
If you like dark basslines, a deadly groove that ebbs and flows like the tide and beats that could knock nails into concrete without needing an independent power source then this simple, stripped back, underground delight. Secret weapon. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette ...

Robbie Rivera - That Summer - (Juicy Music)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
Robbie Rivera makes a departure from his heavy tribal main room sound to deliver a soaring and explosive piano house summer tune that could well double up as a heat seeking, military weapon in the wrong hands. In the right hands it will destroy dancefloors and radio shows without even breaking sweat. It’s simple, effective and meticulously well executed. I love. 5 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette ...

Style Of Eye Ft. Sal - The Game (Remixes) - (Ultra)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
If festivals were enormous pancakes, then Style of Eye’s ‘The Game’ , is going to flip them hard enough and high enough until every tent sticks on the ceiling of the stratosphere and then slides ingloriously down it munted face first. You could fit an anorexic rizla between the mixes though so make your own choice between Asalto and Sal’s riotous trance house and Digital LAB & Kalendr’s soaring, progressive dub. The game is on, indeed it is. 3.5 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette {http://sound...

Teenage Mutants & Purple Disco Machine - The Path - (Suara)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
If you like a safe bet then don’t stray from the Teenagr Mutants & PurpleDisco Machine’s ‘The Path’. It’s a slo-mo disco groove up whisked creamily into a staccato Maceo Parker sax loop, an insistent trilling flute which floats, flows and flies into, up and over the infinity looped, two-note bassline, some bone-snapping handclaps and a preacher vocal that will make you want to confess to sins you never committed. It’s a simple but deadly terrace groover that will have people shamelessly shaz...

Veerus & Maxie Devine - I'm One EP - (Suara)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
‘I’m The One’ is Veerus and Maxie Devine’s second EP for Suara and a four track delight. ‘I’m the One’ is a soulful vocal roller that digs deep and hits a deep house gusher that would do Texaco proud. ‘Click’ is a tribal tech house treat with muzzy drums, effects that sound like the door shearing off a rocket as it launches, a freaky chorus and white noise sizzled, w-w-womp womp womp build up that makes you wonder if you haven’t been bodysnatched and woken up in Chewbacca’s body. ‘Who Yeah’ work...

Coyu - Party Groovers - (Suara)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
If you like tech house that makes your teeth break free from your jawbone then gnash away at your skeleton until it is dust, then this is your back-riding monkey. ‘In My Mind’ is the sort of angle grinder through skull, psycho-hypnotic work out that’ll make you climb the walls like spiderman until you’re dancing upside down like a bat. Tearing. ‘Balls’ is a ping-pong, clave off that will do well from Asia to Alaska and Aviemore and everywhere in between. It’s the sort of sound that makes the Ush...

Jess Glynne - Right Here - (Black Butter Records)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
‘Rather Be’s chart topping vocalist Jess Glynne pops her solo artist cherry with this roaring, bass heavy, summer sizzler. It’s a blazing, sunglasses and cocktails affair with a citric slice of perfect pop on the side . Add a horn lick or two, depth charged beats and sand dance snares and you have the perfect recipe for a direct to radio A-list and chart topping hit. Congratulations to all concerned. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette ...

Galantis - You (Remixes) - (Big Beat)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
It’s not as if you need reminding how HIGHLY I rate Galantis. I name drop them practically every week. Why ? Well, that marvellous marriage of Miike Snow’s Christian Karlsson and Style of Eye’s Linus Eklow’s collective know how has had me enraptured since last year’s ‘Smile’ and I haven’t been disappointed with any of the Eps since then. ‘You’ surfaces from the record company release schedule armed with a tearing, downtempo to uptempo, Calvin Harris meets Skrillex influenced, house meets dubstep...

Harry Romero - Tania (The Remixes) - (Toolroom)

Monday, 02 June 2014 House
If you ever needed proof that bouncy, feelgood, filtered house was making a comeback then you need look no further than Toolroom’s diamond bright, remix package of Harry Romero’s 2000 slash 2001 Subliminal slash Bambossa classic ‘Tania’. Riva Starr delivers an uptempo, four-to-the-floor whomp-athon that will keep the steroid pumped, oversized vest, shorts and baseball cap (worn backwards) massive shuffling for all they’re worth. Purple Disco Machine’s reworking is a groove so lazy that horizonta...

Thursday, 29 May 2014 House
Waze & Odyssey’s imprint delivers two equally delectable trax, by as of yet unrevealed artists, for the dancefloor coming hard-hitting as always. ‘Let’s Call Out’ kicks off with a slinky bassline introduced by rapturous stabs and insistent, shuffling hi-hats all of which reaches its fevered conclusion with the addition of rousing vocals punching out the title in irresistible fashion. ‘I'm Gunna Sing It (Sing It)’ then replays a classic early eighties NY vocal over sumptuous, deeper rhythms l...

Bambook - Hearts & Roads - Culprit

Thursday, 29 May 2014 House
Bambook’s transcendent version of House Music is really a joy to behold. The tastefully titled,’ Humble Hearts’ has that quality in abundance with its rapid beats underpinning the spiritual qualities delivered via the ‘you will be forgiven’ vocal. Subtle, yet hard-hitting this packs more emotional punch than most with its uncomplicated arrangement unfolding over some six and a half minutes. The Finnebassen version remains Deep, although with a slightly tougher edge, while reworking most of the i...

Mark Barrott - Sketches From An Island - International Feel

Thursday, 29 May 2014 Albums
In ways albums make more sense in the summertime or least this one certainly does. Mark Barrott’s sublime trip through the sights and sounds of an island certainly makes that special experience seem, well, all the more special. If you’re tuned into the sunshine vibes of feel good music, that isn’t really anything but in a class of its own, then this will suit you perfectly. The breezy opening,’Baby Come Home’ speaks volumes as an instrumentally charged workout while the remainder of the album pr...
