Time to Relax (Left/Right Remix) - Gabe - Audiophile Deep

Texas native Left/Right proves just how much he's freshened up his sound over the past year with this supremely classy two-step reworking, all wistful pads, dubbed-out vocals and garagey synth plucks.  

Gon - Native - Dark Manoeuvres

Part two of the 'Infra Audientia' series showcases more of the cherry-picked innovators in the modern intelligent bracket. ‘Gone’ by London-based Native starts the EP with a smooth liquid cut, decorated with an emotional pitched-down vocal. Tinged with melancholy, this is a beautiful piece, although in some places the arrangement is a little odd. The twinkling piano and subtle sub, however, make this a pleasure to listen to. Check out the jazzy second track from Ower too.

Work On Me EP - Lewis Boardman - Play It Down

Lewis Boardman, long time resident at Yousef's Circus club night in Liverpool has only just quit his regular employment to devote his nine-to-five activities to house music. Bugger only knows why he's waited until now, on this evidence. 'Consistency', all percussive and bass-loaded, is one of those gear-shifting tracks, which in the space of six minutes has the power to turn a good party into a great one. 'Work On Me', meanwhile, has something of a Masters At Work dub vibe to it, but darker and a little more dangerous. 'Stones' has, well, stones. Big fat ones. Do give up the day job. Please.

Screechin White Walls - Axel F - BangYaHead Entertainment

Nothing to do with Harold Faltemeyer, Axel F is the nom-de-plume of J. Rocc of Beat Junkies & MED aka Medaphoar. Their soon-dropping 'Theme Music' album is phenomenal and probably won't get picked up by any cognoscenti until 2015. Get in early on this astonishing track — nowt but a wobbly, disturbing slab of bass slammed down over progressively more tense and turbid beats. Guilty Simpson's verse only adds to the dread and chaos. If you say you were into this now you're gonna be the hippest motherfucker on the block come next year. Get in and get in early.
