There Is No Way - Dorian - New Playaz

Playaz' little sister label is rapidly gaining support, and with releases like this it is clear to see why. This is a gloriously dark roller with a silky, luxurious vibe. The gorgeous female vocal works with a cannily-placed layer of soft pads to lift the bassline from its depths, and mirror its nasty undertone. It feels weighty, full-bodied and decadent, and when it drops no-one will be able to resist a good old-fashioned skank.

The Fruit Club - Soul Intent - Lossless Music

This is a dark and industrial nod to the tunes of yesteryear. There’s a sentimental familiarity to the breaks, which are reminiscent of the transition period between hardcore and jungle. There’s a haunting, paranoid vibe over the track which is lifted by the soulful vox. 

Keep It Working (Joey Negro Remixes) - Soulpersona & Princess Freesia - ZR

Anthemic moment from Joey Negro and label pals, Soulpersona & Princess, who drop this deep, ear-worming, disco-house tune. If the vocals preach a little too much positivity against the current mood of “everything in the world turning to shit”, then head for the lush, Def Mix style instrumental that evokes that safe, reassuring feeling of nostalgia. Includes a useful reprise version too.

Eskipade - Laura Jones - Visionquest

The Visionquest boys nab this heavyweight, riff-heavy excursion from the inimitable Laura Jones. The jacking, stripped 'Crux' might just take it, but the OCH mix of the title track demands attention.
