FKN BASS - Ruthless & Punish - Spinnin'

Slow bpm with a brutally hard kick, this is one of the coolest and most creative tracks I’ve heard in a while. Classic jump meets house!

Deadline (Dub Phizix Remix) - Digital - Function Records

There’s only one word that can describe Digital’s ‘Deadline’ and that word is classic. As my general rule, classics shouldn’t be touched, but there’s always exceptions. A track that's been doing the rounds since 2011 finally sees wax. Dub Phizix has taken his signature tribal sound and added it to a track which already had a pounding primitive backbone. While the famous ascending synths are still at the core, this version sees them echoed and emphasised by a hefty sub.

Always Orange - Noisecontrollers - Q-Dance

One of the true pioneers of the hardstyle scene delivers a three-track EP from his latest album, All Around’ — now flying solo with Bas taking the reins of the project. This is his first album as a solo act but believe me the quality hasn't changed at all with epic melodies, forward thinking ideas and impeccable production throughout. My pick from this EP is Always Orange’, a euphoric beast of a track proving you don't always need a sing-along vocal to make a big hit.

Light Breaker EP - Neighbour feat Piper Davis - Home Breakin Records

The Vancouver-based DJ and producer drops his latest EP release for local label, Home Breakin Records, which features remix appearances from 6th Borough Project, Cyclist and more. With little original material (remixes outweighing five to one), there’s not so much of Neighbour’s production to go on, but his wistful, mid-paced, electronic disco style does show promise. However, my interest lies more in the remixed material, with The Revenge (here under his 6th Borough Project moniker) providing the highlight.
