The summer is refusing to sleep, and neither should you in the UK
Iguana (Organ Donors Subground Rework) - Mauro Picotto - CDR

Big rework of Picotto’s trance classic 'Iguana' by Bournemouth brothers The Organ Donors, adding a ferocious sub-heavy bassline as well as a subtle counter melody on top of the original well-known melodies in the breakdown, dropping with some distorted sounds and pounding beats. This is sure to get a lot of plays at festivals worldwide this summer.

We Rule Dancehall EP - Infekto vs Rico Tubbs - Passenger

Here's a noisenik EP full of party-shocking rave goodness that DJs who miss the old fidget house sound will no doubt adore. Personally, I'd rather chew on my own kidneys than ever have to go through that horrendous period in dance music ever again, but Finland-based Infekto and Rico Tubbs (two producer names, same guy) has the skills to make the whole vibe pretty close to palatable. 'Smasher' is all wobble stomp mayhem on the drops and wicked old skool rave attitude on the breakdowns, with some cool ragga vocal snatches to keep the energy levels high. 'Rule Dancehall' enlists the legendary Ragga Twins for a speed garage-influenced banger, while 'Rinse Music' has a gorgeous keyboard breakdown that will have 'em reaching for the lasers. Irritatingly brilliant.

Love Is Gone - Nick Karsten feat Lara Love - Euphonic Records

Is Lara Love referring to herself in the title!? This and other questions will lyrically remain unclear over ‘Love Is Gone’s course, but the far-from-ordinary riff, peppy vocals and likewise uplifting tone should keep the floor entertained.

Freaks - Richard Norris - Throne of Blood

He of The Grid and Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve fame, Richard Norris turns out for Brooklyn's eminent Throne of Blood, and 'Freaks' is indeed a freaky, unsettling, tom tom-heavy workout, with a bassline filthier than Jodie Marsh's Twitter account. "Freaks control the city, and I am one of the freaks" as it proclaims. Well, quite. On the flip, 'Yeah' boasts a delicious Fingers Inc bass, while Blackstrobe don Ivan Smagghe and Hardway Bros pick apart the title track. Sterling work here.
