H.O.U.S.E. - Daniel Trim - Glasgow Underground

Barcelona's Daniel Trim returns on Kevin McKay's Glasgow Underground with a storming three-tracker, the title banger 'H.O.U.S.E.' being one of those groove-heavy rollers that can flip a good party into the realms of a great party. Over, 'Our Light' manages to straddle the dizzyingly intricate with the gloriously anthemic. Always impressive, if you can carry it off. 'Rainbow Rising', meanwhile, is primed for those 5am dancefloors which, frankly, deserve to be freaked out. A jacking Detroit-style groove with European sensibilities.

The Holy Mountain EP - Les Points - Les Points

This fourth release from Les Points — aka the Italo-Swiss axis of Nicola Kazimir, Audino, Louh and Barbir — is another quietly superb EP. It's easy to be taken in by the understated, warming-yet-unsettling wonderfulness of 'Rhodes of Kunlun', which bleeps and blips beneath soothing Rhodes keys, or the shuffling depth of Rozzo's remix of 'The Holy Mountain'. But then there's the wonky intrigue of 'Cosmointeruptus', which you should overlook at your peril, not to mention the mind-bending 'Transform'. Jeez, these guys have got it going on.

Distant Focus Vol 1 - Toydrum - Underscore Collective

For our money Psycho Pab is still one of the most underrated producers out there, despite his work as one half of the Psychonauts and critical member of the UNKLE production team. This project sees him tag team with studio partner James Griffiths and as ever, witnesses him plundering a lifetime of musical influences and discoveries into this mini LP. Gavin Clark is the guest vocalist on ‘Distant Focus’, another string-laden and timeless track from this great producer.

X Seminar - Camp Lo - Nature Sounds

Yes it's them, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede. As an old obsessive with 'Luchini', maaaan I wanted this to be good. And it's... ok. Just ok. Ski Beats' production is a little deoderised for me, club-friendly without a doubt, but just a little lacking for me in low-end intrigue or anything idiosyncratically unique. Unique is what you want, what Camp Lo need to suit Sonny & Geechi's flows, which are still great, but seem hampered from finding their true natural oddity and grace by dint of the rather anodyne backing. The Outkast-style jazzy bassline provides encouragement. Ski produces the whole of the forthcoming album — I hope it's not all in this holding pattern. Understand that they needed something 'club-friendly' for their re-emergence, just wish there was more juice and less contemporaneity going on here.
