Cologne pair andhim present the latest excursion of their 'super house' sound. And to be fair, for all its self-aggrandisement, it is pretty super. And it's house. So here we are. Despite spelling issues, 'Spayce' has got oodles of swing among all the bleeping electronica, a clattering anthem, layered with glorious noise. 'Domplatte' is a tad more understated, but it lacks not ambition. When the drums roll back in after each classy break, all becomes abundantly clear. Very good indeed.
Muscular new-wave/disco hybrid on Tronik Youth’s Nein label, which has maintained quality levels throughout their catalogue. Part of the UK’s Clueless System Crew, Spanish production duo, Dr Beat & Borja Campion as Two Mamarrachos, have settled into a new sound, following the years spinning acid house. This lively label debut sees strong mixes from the likes of Rodion, Factory Floor, Pete Herbert & Phil Mison under their Reverso 68 guise, and Damon Gee.
The ‘Livity Sound’ sound has really come into its own since it started as an outlet for Pev, Kowton and Asusu’s work back in 2011, and their latest plate, a duo of tracks from Pev & Kowton, reflects that.

The legendary Mike Dunn gets re-rubbed here by Ibadan bossman Jerome Sydenham and Sweden's Martin Brodin. Vision Factory of Berlin and their balls-out epic-ness is tough to resist, though.
