4&3&2&1 - Al Twisted & Sleeper Cell - TBC

A brutally pounding track from this Scottish hardcore duo. Clocking in at a furious 200bpm, crossing over the classic UK hardcore techno sounds with the relentless kick and bass of the Frenchcore scene, this certainly isn’t one for the faint-hearted, but if you can handle your music rough, this one will certainly be for you.

Feel the Heat EP - Groundislava - Friends of Friends

I do love myself a bit of Groundislava but I don’t really know or understand what it is exactly that’s made the LA resident go hell-for-leather on channelling his inner ATB. There’s always been a welcome danger that he might take it all too far, but this EP sounds like the music we were dancing to in Rock City in 1999, and we weren’t really so into it then either. At least there were Nottingham girls there...

Wolves feat Youngblood Hawke (12inch version) - Digitalism - Magnetism Records

Germany’s Digitalism have demonstrated their love of a good pop vocal in the past, though here they steer things full force into indie-dance territory with a collaboration with LA band Youngblood Hawke. It’s a style fusion and a directional shift that sounds as natural as anything, though there are Booka Shade and Riton remixes available for anyone looking for a little more club grunt.

Pixel Hearts - Maor Levi - ZeroThree

Israeli studio whiz Maor Levimade his name as a producer with some stunning progressive trance for the Anjunabeats stable in his early days, though he’s largely crossed over into EDM in recent years. However, ‘Pixel Hearts’ is an irresistible gem that manages to bring together the different elements of his appeal. It’s a homerun of noisy electro euphoria that marries the energy of Hardwell and Above & Beyond with a breakdown that’s aimed squarely at the festival main stages, and a sub-bass growl lurking in the melodic riff that does maximum damage. Made for the EDM crowd though it may be, Levi’s studio work is unspeakably tight.
