This Is All We Have - The Thrillseekers - Adjusted Music

A very personal track (it’s a tribute to Steve Helstrip’s father), ‘This Is All We Have’s meaning couldn’t be writ larger. Lamentation blending/contrasting into trance uplift was something The Thrillseekers if not quite invented, then certainly pioneered. Through ‘This Is All We Have’s meditative savannah-ish sub-melodies, hailing female vocals, piano and guitar inflections, and a quite brilliantly structured, spirited final third, he travels that arc superbly again.

October - Airhead - Hemlock

I don’t want to call it a reinvention — because it’s not, it’s just a welcome new, club-struck direction — so I’ve started referring to this current period as ‘Airhead’s renaissance’ and regardless of your thoughts on the matter, the swell will continue with this two-tracker due on Hemlock. ‘October’ is a hectic, clunky, stop starter and ‘Macondo’ is more 4/4; its drums march staunchly while its appendages see-saw all over the shop.

Urban Deity - Spurz - Tessier-Ashpool Recordings

Tough package of dancefloor material that piles a shitload of influences — grime, hardcore, jungle and bass music — into the mixing bowl and gives it a good stir. Well seasoned.

Eckoclick EP - Eckoclick - Sonic Router

Full disclosure, I’m releasing this on my label, but the debut EP from Crewdson and Femme as Eckoclick makes good on the promise their remix of Bambooman’s ‘Sun’ hinted at. Pop-leaning house built from micro-chopped samples and enchanting vocals.
