Weeks ft. Ladybird - Searching4Love / You Want My Love - (Robsoul)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
'Searching4Love' is the result of a musical union between 2 Parisian House heads, DJ/producer Phil Weeks and vocalist Ladybird, who together have cooked up a delicious slice of deep and soulful house for Robsoul.  Phil, up to his usual sampling tricks, has crafted a subtle key hook over a hot cymbal drenched deep groove, with Ladybird adding her seductive vocal magic, creating a deep house bomb. Deemed to get the soul-kids shuffling, is Phil's sweet dusty vinyl flavoured 'You Want My Love',...

Gorgon City - Here For You - (Black Butter Records)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
Gorgon City are dons in their field and ‘Here For You’ is one more reason why. Laura Welsh’s vocals are pure and seductive, then the bass is phat, nasty and will mash up your dance in no uncertain terms. A remix package is in the pipeline so start putting your pocket money to one side. It’s radio sweet, club sexy and it’s here for you so come and get it. 3.5 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette ...

Hard Rock Sofa & Skidka - Arms Aroud Me - (Axtone)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
There are two enormous hits coming on Axtone and this is the other one. Hardrock Sofa and Skidka’s ‘Arms Around Me’ is a soaring, pounding chimera that blends progressive beats, trance synths, french touch filters and loops, choral vocals, swedish bad assed beats, dutch energy and an risk of all risks an old skool, live band, big brass led US funk breakdown and all works fantastically. It’s a joy to play a record that has the balls to be different in a world where everything in this genre is sta...

Laidback Luke & D.O.D - Flashing Lights - (Mixmash)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
I was pleasantly surprised by the effect of this track on the dancefloor and I think you will too. The excitable whippy, zippy synths, oompah oompahbeat and the German National Anthem sounding-car alarms contacting alien spaceships through a festival speaker will get a hold of you before you know it. And if it takes a while longer, the tripping and spilling, classical glockenspiel melody, bromantic backslapping chant, psychopathic woohs and buzz in the bassbin effects will convince you no end. A...

Let The Music Play Ft. Marshall Jefferson & UTRB - In The Beginning - (Special Requests)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
When a record starts like this “Once upon a time back in the day there were cavemen, they were pretty primitive”... and finishes “we still like to get down” then layers this over a badd ass, skanking and smoking dub bassline and a ‘mash it up’ rave attitude you know it’s going to be stoosh. Doc Daneeka goes hard on the breakbeats but still has the rave rage. Tom Bulwer delivers a smooth, jacking house that’ll make you bounce like a tic tac on a speaker. The ‘Jackin Mix’ gets Lil Louis / freeform...

Tony Lionni Ft. Maria Marcial - Do You Believe - (Madhouse)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
If you like your soulful deep house to percolate like top quality and connoisseur strength coffee then I’ve ear-marked Tony Lionni’s ‘Do You Believe’  especially for you. Maria Marcial’s vocal glistens like diamonds in the stream of Tony’s shimmering arrangement.  Francois Dubois (Funk D’Void) bubbling tech house remix swirls in the caramel with a libido raising male vocal counter melody that could strip the knickers off a nun without touching her habit. Shades of Teddy Douglas and Lui...

Mutiny UK & Steve Mac - Feel The Pressure (Axwell And No_ID Remix) - (Axtone)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
There are two huge hits coming on Axtone Records, so congratulations are due to Mutiny Uk and Steve Mac because this is one of them. ‘Feel The Pressure’ is a perfect summer party record. It packs that piston fist pump energy that makes you feel great to be alive, builds up a fine head of steam as the ‘Feel The Pressure’ vocal loop drives the point home and hard. Then when Nate James glorious vocal (with the let me just google and learn those lyrics appeal) shears through the hazy and bright synt...

Max Vangeli - Last Night Changed It All - (Size Recordings)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 Prog / Tribal / Trance
A sloppy, slap happy kick, effects that spiraml upwards and orgasmic drops give way to a Les Djinns style strummed guitar, diaphanous folk vocal, soaring synths and the hanger-in-the-neckline of your jacket ‘last night changed it all’ lyrical yank back are destined to take Max Vangeli and this crossover pop progressive track to the centre of a much bigger stage. 3.5 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette ...

Second City- I Wanna Feel - (Ministry Of Sound)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 Mainstream
Skippy garage is making a big comeback this year and SecondCity’s ‘I Wanna Feel’ is a current contender for the king of the castle. Piano house keys, a bouncing bomb bassline and a looped, sexy r n b soul vocal combine forces to create a devastating dancefloor dynamic. Brookes Brothers slow it down for an 80’s r n b electro intro then it hits full speed for a triple time drum and bass jump up that rewinds, backspins, lighter crews, cchampagne showers and airhorns were made for. Naughty. Feels go...

Rudimental - Powerless - Featuring Becky Hill (Remixes) - (Asylum)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 Mainstream
Rudimental are becoming an unstoppable force in British music and ‘Powerless’ is one more step in the anthemic, room shaking, bar raising direction. Becky Hill’s has a whisky and cigarettes soaked blues voice that soars with the power of a . MK leads the pack and nails it with a deep house groove clamped immovably in the jaws of a vocal loop that sinks its teeth deeper into your brain than any zombie or vampire ever could.  Animal Youth space it out for a brooding, anti-gravity fall through...

John Dahlback & Benny Benassi - Blink Again - (Ultra)

Spinback to 2006 / 7 and ‘Blink’ could be heard on every radio, in every club, on every ipod and MP3 player.  Fast forward to 2015 add Benny Benassi’s trance progressive edge and John’s perfectionist production know how and you have the rebirth of a hit. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes. 4 out of 5 Reviewed by Paulette ...

The Freestyler Feat. Fast Eddie - The Sound - (Black Hole Recordings / Rub A Duck)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
I’ve always liked the Freestylers – their hi-octane breakbeat 303 house has that festival tent je ne sais quoi that makes me become a careless, annoying, foot treading, whistle blowing, mosh pit punter. The Blapps Posse take it centre rave with woohs, whistles, heavy, rolling breaks and an acid line so nasty you’d think it was taking revenge on us because the exorcism didn’t work. Zoo Brazil lay waste to all challengers with a dark and deeply imposing, throbbing 303 acidics, vocally hypnotherape...

Wehbba - Opalescence - (Audio Tonic Records)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
Wehbba’s ‘opalescence’ puts me in mind of those nights when you get in your car and drive to nowhere in particular – only without headlamps, blindfolded, hands tied in front and with your foot stuck to the accelerator with superglue. It’s a white knuckle ride but one that is fulfilling nonetheless. The Raxon remix is a sub bass driven slide on the wild side that gets more twisted and distorted than your reflection would seem if you dropped a ton of acid then did your make up or had a shave whils...

Thee Cool Cats - Mossberg Pump EP - (Cuff Recordings)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
They say good things happen in threes – so here is your third tasty installment from Amine Edge’s CUFF Recordings imprint. Thee Cool Cats ‘Mossberg Pump EP’ goes that extra mile to help them continue their reign as fine, french purveyors of throbbing, sleazy bass house. Hovering in the long shadows, twisting the minor chords, gating the pads and compressing the sound so that it feels like a magician trying to work his way out of a padlocked strait jacket. You get four tracks – the jolliest of wh...

Clean Cut Collective - Newport Blues EP - (Unrivaled Music)

Thursday, 17 April 2014 House
Talking about things addictive this latest from Bristol duo Clean Cut Collective certainly fits that bill. Leaning on just the right side of Tech but funky this first rate production combines taught beats and bass with punctuating vocal stabs plus atmospheric chimes creating something distinctive and invigorating in the title track. Vinegar Stroke, then completes the EP with shuffling rhythms and a slightly off-kilter sample that is nothing but intriguing. Curious to hear more from this pair. 4...
