Duster EP - Midland - Aus Music

Midland’s production work has gotten meatier lately — as his recent outings on his own Graded and the Phonica White series have proven. He’s always been adept at balance though — like he’s never gotten too fucked up wild with it. But in ensuring that even the nastiest of sounds are proper in the mix he produces tunes like ‘Reflex’, tracks that’d get blackout drunk and offend your girlfriend if he ever let them off the leash.

Don’t Tell Me No Lies - Whole Truth - Whole Truth Records

Ironically amidst the dub it’s the acidic nu disco of ‘Truth Groove’ that stands out here. Squelching and parping in all the right places.

Panzerkeuz 1029 - Ghettogem vs Black Sites - Panzerkreuz

The latest release on Guy Tavares’ grungy techno label sees Hague duo Ghettogem share vinyl space with Golden Pudel residents Helena Hauff and F”x under their Black Sites guise. Ghettogem’s untitled track goes on for what seems like an eternity, a pared-back live jam powered by volleys of snares and insane acid tones and bleeps. Black Sites’ approach is more succinct but just as extreme, with shrill sirens, ringing feedback and the sound levels dropping sporadically, as the German duo deliver their own untamed take on acid jack.

Save the Acid Dream - Ruthless & Dave S - CDR

Freestyle is the latest buzzword on the hard scene at the moment, combining flavours of hardstyle, jump, hardcore and even trap! At the forefront of this movement is Ruthless, who pioneered this style of DJing long before the term was used. His latest production, a collaboration with Dave S, is a nostalgic kick back to an early Showtek track, fused with the Euro classic from Cherry Moon Trax. Put simply, this is pure dancefloor fodder, guaranteed reaction every time.
