Together Like This - Zoo Look - Abstract Culture

Abstract Culture so far has a 100% record. OK, so they've only one release, but they've really smashed it out of the park. Bournemouth's Zoo Look are blessed with populating this inaugural EP, 'Together Like This', a swing-laden groove flecked with acid. The art of the warm-up DJ is often lost these days, but this is the kind of track to be dropped when the gear needs to shift up. The 'Purple Velvet Mix' humps too. 'The Duchess' is a brilliantly fucked up breakbeat houser, the likes of which we don't see enough. Bravo. 

I Lost My E - Young Male - Work Them Records

There's been a lot of talk about Young Male and the White Material label - but is the hype justified? On the evidence of 'I Lost My E', it's clear that Young Male is highly capable of making high-quality club tracks with some unusual signatures; the driving 'Finesse' goes out of time as it closes, and 'Depraved Thoughts In Depraved Times' boasts the kind of eerie soundscapes that Silent Servant might conjure up. Whether or not Young Male and his associates deserve the attention they receive is questionable. 

She Weirds Me Out - h2so4 - self released

Interesting noises on a Kraftwerkian groove with the result sounding a little like a dancified Spiritualised. Comes with a Dub that some more inventive DJs could put to good use.

Tiny Breadcrumbs - Magic Mountain High - Off Minor

Move D's ongoing collaboration with Juju & Jordash yields more out-there grooves. Like previous MMH material, this release is the result of improvised jamming, and all of the tracks have a spontaneous, raw feeling. 'Avalanche' features the sound of the wind screeching through a forest over a primitive drum beat, while 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina (No Compromise Mix)' sees ghostly Moog lines run over a stripped-back rhythm. The most impressive track to come from the trio's live jams is 'Riptide', where spaced-out acid lines arc and ride over a trippy, modulated rhythm.
