Big, bad and banging as ever...
Cognition - DJ Stingray - Lower Parts

Sherard Ingram is best known for his razor-sharp, high octane electro as DJ Stingray, but his latest release sees him explore other possibilities. High-paced, angular funk is audible on ‘Dendrite’, but is shrouded in atmospheric chords. 'Acetylcholine' represents a greater shift in sound — a raw, stomping techno track — while ‘eRbB4’ is reminiscent of Drexciya’s Other People Place side-project with its sublime melodies and understated pulses. Kon001 complete the release with a fine, acid-soaked take on ‘eRbB4’.

Spark It - Quantic - Tru Thoughts

Is there any musical genre that Will Holland touches that doesn’t turn to gold? Judging by this latest collab with the legendary Shinehead of ‘Jamaican In New York’ fame, it would seem not. Just the right application of vocal, bassline, reverb and echo make this a bona fide release that would have found favour on any Fashion, Pama or Greensleeves label release schedule back in the day.

Just Back - Seth Troxler - Tuskegee Music

A thing of beauty from the man like Troxler, unleashed on Tuskegee Music, his endeavour with the Martinez Brothers which dubs itself a 'label of cultural heritage'. Grand ambitions indeed, but to be fair, this really is very good indeed. 'CZ' is a hypnotic, vibe-heavy groove, buzzing with tension. A track to lose yourself in. Over, there's 'Junkyard Tool', equally as substantial, with fuzzy piano stabs and a distant diva, hinting at nostalgia but in a most classy fashion. This is the way to do classic house, not just slapping the Robin S organ on everything and thinking you're clever.

Delft 08 - Various - Delft

Talk about a transformation; in its original format, LA-4A’s 'Invader' is a decent slice of grungy techno with some eerie Konders keys, but it reaches a new level when Alden Tyrell remixes it. Hardcore samples screech in over militaristic claps, a grainy bass stomps like a skinhead losing it after too much Scrumpy and the end result positively exudes menace. Man of the moment Matrixxman is tasked with remixing  another LA-4A track, 'America Kid', but even his hypnotic, acid-soaked version can’t compare to Tyrell’s apocalyptic meltdown.
