CONTEST: JOSEPH CAPRIATI VIP PACKAGE IN NYC

Breaks My Heart Each Time - Leyland Kirby - Apollo

As a patchwork of internally comtempla- tive electronica, Leyland Kirby’s work excels with tracks called things like ‘Diminishing Emotion’ and ‘Breaks My Heart Each Time’, built expertly out of a delightfully corroded sound palette; but as a listen, it’s nothing if not fractured. 

Simplon EP - Black Loops - Gruuv

Audiojack's Gruuv label is ludicrously reliable as far as stone-cold party music concerned, and this filthy business from Black Loops is unstoppable. Take your pick; 'Simplon' has the rolling, chugging thing down pat. Actually, so does 'Cabron', along with the big room atmosphere. 'Up On You' has a devastating bassline and some swaggering garage attitude. But the Sidney Charles mix of 'Simplon', using the 909 drum palette to devastating effect will slap a big, possibly daft smile across that face of yours. 

Microphone Phenomenal - Paranom & Purpose - Ill Adrenaline

Sweet as fuck - the Tragic Allies hook up on a beautifully measured throb of Rhodes-laden jazz abstraction from Purpose and the results recall Premo, Diamond D & Pete Rock in all the best ways. Essential. 

Howl At the Moon - Driftmoon - Pure Trance

Opening the score sheet for Solarstone's new imprint, a now conspicuously on-the-march Driftmoon locks his studio dial to pure trance. To be fair his output is already very much in the vicinity, but on 'Howl At the Moon' those keystone components come evermore accentuated. On his 'Retouch Mix' Solarstone adds his running/pummelling b-line hallmark and further beefs up the payoff. All in all, an impressive opener.
