Texas native Left/Right proves just how much he's freshened up his sound over the past year with this supremely classy two-step reworking, all wistful pads, dubbed-out vocals and garagey synth plucks.
Sterling New Jersey vibes from Belfast's Montel. Bass rumbles like thunder on title track 'Brothers Sisters', while 'Got 2 Have U' brings the disco amid the skippy percussion.
Swedish Mafioso Steve Angello recognises the supreme power of Grum here, entrusting him to rework his latest vocal anthem — already kissed by the chords of the Temper Trap. The result? A stupendously explosive package of electro and peaktime trance, which kicks into high gear with a breakdown that’s executed with enough precision to make your eyes roll into the back of your head. Delivering all the thrills of trance, without really being trance. Grum, we salute you.
Nothing to do with Harold Faltemeyer, Axel F is the nom-de-plume of J. Rocc of Beat Junkies & MED aka Medaphoar. Their soon-dropping 'Theme Music' album is phenomenal and probably won't get picked up by any cognoscenti until 2015. Get in early on this astonishing track — nowt but a wobbly, disturbing slab of bass slammed down over progressively more tense and turbid beats. Guilty Simpson's verse only adds to the dread and chaos. If you say you were into this now you're gonna be the hippest motherfucker on the block come next year. Get in and get in early.
