Various Artists - King Of Rats

Friday, 26 September 2014 Compilations
Sinnmusik has proven itself to be a fine purveyor of interesting and non standard house sounds in recent times, and this new EP from regular artist Roman Mühlschlegel and King of Rats proves that I spades once more, such is the lush invention on display in both originals and the two remixes included from Baldo and Georgi Barrel & Niclas. Opening up the EP is Gifted, a slithering, snaking and bass heavy house track with a genuinely decent original vocal from Krystal that lingers ling in the a...

D Ramirez & Guy Williams - The Motherload EP - (Great Stuff Recordings)

Thursday, 25 September 2014 House
Favourites of the London house scene D Ramirez and DJ / Producer / Organiser Guy Williams deliver their ‘Motherload EP’ a rather tasty double header for Great Stuff Recordings. ‘Get It Clear’ uses that choppy ‘learned to cope’ vocal and old skool minor chord piano keys to get that party rocking. ‘No Guarantees’ is all about the pitched vocals, big bassline and jabbing organ stabs. House music all night long for sweaty dark rooms and bouncing dancefloors. 3 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette  ...

SRTW - We Were Young (Sascha Kloeber Remix) - (Spinnin Deep)

Thursday, 25 September 2014 House
Time stretched vocals seem to be a thing now, so it pays to at least sniff out the best of the bunch. SRTW’s ‘We Were Young’ happily comes into the ‘best of’ category with its timestretched vocal melody, swathes of strings, clicking rim shots, rubbery kick and lazily strummed guitar. That Sascha makes his music totally analog and without computer should be noted and respected. This kicks. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette   {http://soundcloud.com/spinninrecords/srtw-we-were-young-sascha-k...

Showtek Ft. Tryna - Wasting Our Lives - (Skink)

Thursday, 25 September 2014 House
‘Wasting Our Lives’ works a bright female, playground chant into a big room, bottom end parping and stomping bone crusher with the same ‘party all night’ attitude of Charli XCX’s ‘Break the Rules’ but in an unashamed progressive / EDM fashion. Waste not, want not. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette...

Dustycloud - Marie - (Ultra)

Thursday, 25 September 2014 House
Rolling keys, white noise, reverbed, reversed and fx-ed voices and ‘dancing’ vocal prompts make this a simple yet effective easy rider. There’s really nothing to it and that’s what makes it all the more attractive. 3.5 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette       ...

Charli XCX - Break The Rules - (Asylum)

Thursday, 25 September 2014 House
I do love me a bit of pop with teeth and Charli XCX’s ‘Break The Rules’ is a growling rock guitar, synth wash, head-banging then crowd-surfing special with lyrics like a razor sharp, double set of shark’s teeth. If ‘Going to the discotec getting high and getting wrecked’ is your thing, this is your jam. Na na na na na na na na na na na nahhhhhhh. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By Paulette ...

Jan Ketel - Drop It Low - (Palms & Flamingos)

Wednesday, 24 September 2014 House
With their tenth release Palms & Flamingos deliver one of those distinctive tracks that will undoubtedly turn heads. Low-slung and sleazy this combination of electro styled drums, synths plus pulsating basslines sets just the right tone for Onosizo & Lil Ann’s commanding words on top of the Original version. Remixes come from Filburt who gives it a tougher feel with punchy House beats and bass, while the irresistible Mudegg version adds a Disco flavour transporting you straight back to e...

Mr G - Remote Viewing EP - (Phoenix G)

Wednesday, 24 September 2014 House
Making sense out of an insane world Mr.G’s provocative rhythms remain resolutely uncompromising while (thankfully) completely ignoring fashion. Deceptively uncomplicated yet every note feels considered and purposeful this latest release via his own label sees alter ego Mango Boy deliver the message loud and clear. Opening with the twisted bliss of, ‘Newmerique’ which reveals itself through layers of sound and effortlessly sequences his trademark stabs together with suitably hissing hi-hats, and ...

Those waiting for the release of this album will not be disappointed. As the voice of dOP and Les Fils du Calvaire you will already be acquainted with JAW’s distinctive vocal style, and this exciting project truly sparks the imagination with collaborations via an array of notable artists. Not only that but the music reflects the diverse set of sights and sounds experienced by the vocalist in making the album, covering both the high and lows of life.

Tripmastaz throws down his third cool single for DJ Sneak’s I'm A House Gangster label. Following two full original EPs, the Russian House music producer calls on friends Carlo Lio and Bebadim to remix 'TomzWork'. As the title suggests, 'TomzWork' sees Tripmastaz getting to work on the tom-tom drums, providing a jacking, tribal groove underpinning an incessant, looping, deconstructed vocal sample.

Doorly & Green Velvet - Money - (Cajual / Relief)

Thursday, 18 September 2014 House
It’s time to shake your money maker to the booty boompty bounce of the Doorly / Green Velvet beat. Its bone snapping beats, kangaroo bounce bassline and whispered vocal are perfect for those darkened spaces where we all see the little green men running around trying to send … oops … maybe that’s just my trip. You can get your own. It sounded fabulous at Ibiza Rocks House at Pacha on Monday night which is why I pestered Doorly for a copy to review it here. Sexy house music for daring dancers and ...

Two french superstars Mercer and Sebastien Bennet join forces for ‘Therapy’ a wibbly, wobbly, big room noise fest of the highest order. It’s as distinctive as a wolf in sheep’s clothing and once it has its jaws on your legs you know there’s no escaping it until its jaws draw blood. Yep. That kind of rocking backwards and forwards, big, rubber lined, hands behind the back, straps, buckles and bars room.
