APRIL'S HIGH FIVE

EASTER IS UPON US! BUNNY HOP DOWN TO ONE OF THESE...
Celebrate Life - Eelke Kleijn - Spinnin’ Deep

Spinnin’s idea of ‘deep’ is actually an epic hands-in-the-air progressive record, and Eelke Kleijn delivers a irresistibly emotive effort here. Built around a cleverly deployed guitar lick, it’ll function both as a main room house weapon, as well a peaktime indulgence for some of the deeper DJs.

On & On - This Soft Machine - Eskimo Recordings

Released as a double header and forming part of ‘The Orange Collection’ on Eskimo, these are two slices of psychedelic-tinged modern disco, that in equal measure capture the Balearic crossover sound of Eskimo. Coming straight out of Australia and featuring Dan Whitford from Cut Copy on synths, it has enough appeal for both floor and headphones alike. The David Byrne sound-a-like ‘This Place Was Meant For Me’ gets the thumbs up here.

 

Fear Bites - Riya ft Dynamite MC, Villem & McLeod - Spearhead Records

She’s been such a huge part of the scene for so long that it’s amazing to think that Riya’s forthcoming album will be her debut. As a vocal artist her distinctive voice takes the centre stage in the track, and her skill for writing conscious, illuminating and ridiculously catchy lyrics is second-to-none. The backing track is also an excellently produced piece of drum & bass with a warm oscillating bassline and soulful twangs of a guitar.
