Letter EP - Backrdze - The Crescent

It’s all about the lead track on this EP. ‘Letter’ is a cosmic wander with harps, twinkling steel, and brushy skittering drums.

Darker Nights EP - Future Funk Squad - Audio Science Productions

This sampler EP for Bournemouth-based producer and soundtrack musician Future Funk Squad's 'Darker Nights' remix album is proof that there is still plenty of room for invention within the breakbeat sound spectrum. Evil Nine's rerub of 'The Colony' is a deep, brooding, epic affair, like the scary soundtrack to a particularly chilling level of Resident Evil. Hyper's remix of 'Darker Days' is a ruthless Slayer guitar-stomp, while Lee Coombs and Kostas G's reworking of 'Monologue' is all White Stripes guitar, acid licks and moody strings. Kid Digital's remix of 'Rat Race' blends stabs of bass static with post-apocalyptic synths and MC Mojo's cultured vocal about the perils of 21st century existence. Most of these tracks are a little too abstract for the average dancefloor, but that shouldn't put anyone off. Searingly classy stuff.

Cardinal - Endemic Emerald feat Darkim be Allah & Supreme - No Cure Records

Tuff like an elephant's ass, straight up solo-Wu vibes on the rhymes, great scratches from DJ Swift — East NYC dark grainy rap brilliance from both veterans and newbies. 

Cthulhu - Extravagance SL - VANDIT Records

Least pronounceable title of the month (and my bet would be for the year) [it's named after the HP Lovecraft sea demon character, horror buffs - Ed], it also turns out to be VANDIT’s most erudite. Stylishly complex and fluid, yet never convoluted, ‘Cthulhu’ has more than a touch of ‘Xpander’ about it.
