BP02 - Alan Delius & Adam Strömstedt - Banofee Pies

Alan Delius and Adam Strömstedt, of Stockholm's Junk Yard Connections crew, drop this fabulously generous five-tracker for Banofee Pies, only the label's second release. It's as house music should be; blazingly funky, achingly soulful, slightly twisted and eminently danceable. 'When We' pulses with a twisted piano, 'Scuze Me' plumbs Brandy's R&B benchmark 'The Boy Is Mine' for inspiration and 'Reflektioner 17.19' ups the BPMs and bass. Meanwhile, 'The Third Bass' breaks up the beats and embraces oddball hip house, and 'Joe Doesn't Pass' shoots you with a tranquilizer dart.

Time to Relax (Left/Right Remix) - Gabe - Audiophile Deep

Texas native Left/Right proves just how much he's freshened up his sound over the past year with this supremely classy two-step reworking, all wistful pads, dubbed-out vocals and garagey synth plucks.  

Outermost Sensitive Paranoia - Miltiades - Synapsis

‘d0.5u’ is a typically anonymous title for a techno track, but it doesn't do the music justice, with the listener treated to a deep and expansive dub-led groove, with speaker-levelling basslines lapping up against the warm synths. ‘Parrhesia’ is a beautiful deep house groove, with tight percussion guiding Miltiades’ mournful key changes and 'Outpost of Mercy' is a more stripped back 303-led jacking affair. The only weak link in this otherwise excellent record is the title track, which sounds somewhat bland and without direction. 

Escapism (Alphabets Heaven Remix) - Suplington - Youngbloods

The Alphabets Heaven remix outshines the lion’s share of original material on the rest of Suplington’s 'Tokyo Reflections' 12” because it comes with such subtle poise. Foregoing drum programming for texture, he ekes his forward momentum out of the key changes.
