Vapourspace - Sasha - Last Night On Earth

Progressive doyen Sasha returns with his first single in four years, and he makes sure it packs the requisite punch, with ‘Vapourspace’ reflecting his increasing willingness in recent years to embrace his trancier side. Though it simmers with lashings of techno, Sasha works mostly with pure progressive power here, the dark rumble of the bassline slowly swelling into the melodic boom that takes hold in the latter part of the track. Sasha isn’t afraid to unleash here, with ‘Vapourspace’ representing a peaktime indulgence.

Glock’d EP - C.A.R. - Kill the DJ

Chloé Raunet (singer of former London-based electro-wave band, Battant) follows up last year’s ‘My Friend’ album release with her latest, the 'Glock’d EP'. To accompany her more individual take on new wave, she drafts in the refreshing production talent of Les Disques De La Mort’s Manfredas to work a frenetic, industrial touch into the lead tune, ‘Angelina’. Former Battant bandmate, Tim Fairplay, remixes alongside Andrew Weatherall, here as The Asphodells, to give the title track a squashed, ‘rainbow rock’ style doctoring not too dissimilar to Weatherall’s production on Fuck Buttons’ classic ‘Tarot Sport’ LP.

Parody/Progresso - Bottin - Bear Funk

Unstoppable disco machine Bear Funk keeps turning out these quality releases, and over the years we’ve heard some gems from the likes of Todd Terje, Idjut Boys, Brennan Green and Lexx. Now, Steve Kotey’s label makes some more room for one of its longest-serving members, the giallo-disco operator, Bottin, who is back with two tracks of tense, atmospheric, electronic disco; including a collaborative effort with familiar, Rodion. Ace.

F*ckin' Huge - Cryogenix - Big & Dirty

A record for the EDM massive with a bit more of an edge. ‘F*ckin' Huge’ kicks off with more of a slamming progressive vibe, before the chorus welcomes in a few of those recognisable main stage melodies, before the white noise ramps up again after the drop. ‘F*ckin' Huge’ has more bite than the standard cheap thrills you’d associate with the EDM sound, and with the likes of Guetta showing support, it’s further evidence the main stage is toughening up a little.
