Berlin house stable Exploited Records show here they're not immune to the kind of epic melodies that are infiltrating the genre at large, and Adana Twins get in on the progressive action with their remix here. The solid house groove perfectly meets an electro bassline, while the melodies are all hands-in-the-air. Epic, groovy and fun in equal measure.
Dessous don Vincenzo crafts a deep, emotive vocal affair for Above & Beyond's house diffusion label Anjunadeep, featuring veteran vocalist Lisa Shaw. Just dive in and swim about in it.
Second release from promising Antipodean nu-disco duo, Electric Zeus, after a strong debut release for Chris Coco’s Melodica imprint. To accompany, a techy remix production from EzTek will no doubt crossover to the various dancefloors, but the standout here is a mix from JMRS Embracer who (along with a brilliantly retro-sounding name) rouses the soul of '80s electro boogie with some snappy 808 drum sequences. Fun and fully functional — rollerskates at the ready.
"You want a whore in a white dress/I want a wife in a thong" — massively enjoying 'RTJ2', even more than their debut — this highlight is just stunning, fizzing low-slung synth bass patrolling the dark corners like a sweeping lazer, Mike and Producto bouncing off each other into ever-new areas of intrigue and aggravation. There's ALOT to take in on 'RTJ2' and the way this track tails the whole thing off is just superb, forcing that rewind, forcing that total immersion. Glad to live in a world where these guys are on the rise. Fuck the marketeers. The people need THIS.
