Always - Spectrasoul - Shogun Audio

This song is so stunningly striking it had a physical affect on me, bringing butterflies to my stomach and warming my chest, and prompting me to speak out loud to a room full of no one. Amen breaks, crashing drums, soft chords and a soulful snippet of vocal, before the drop takes us to unexpectedly paced drums which are slightly offset against the piano, creating a beautifully jagged affect. The bass almost unnoticeably slides between gloriously warm to dark and cold. Perfect track.

Ups and Downs - June Miller - Ram Records

With their hands at the grindstone June Miller have been quietly preparing to invade our headspace with an electric array of sonic weaponry, starting with this album herald ‘Ups and Downs’. Opening the EP is the title track which begins with a sentimental female vocal before switching into a steppy, unassuming little stomper. Decorated with white noise, glitches droplets and echoes, this track falls between the realms of beauty and beast.

Abattoir - Kahn - Deep Medi

Like an archetypal dubstep blueprint, Kahn has managed to craft two tracks which simultaneously transports you back to Mass, DMZ in early 2006 in a fog of weed smoke and Foreign Export swagger, whilst still feeling totally relevant in 2015. The sound has almost been waiting these past nine years for everyone else to come full circle to appreciate its broad influences, open mindedness and discerning palate. Superb.

Hyperbolic - Bowser & Double Helix - Full Force Recordings

 More dark, funky tech, nothing too original here. It’s got a great energy to it which will keep you moving, there’s some really great samples, but the flip is the diamond.
