Cultural Variance EP - DJ Bone - Leftroom

Metroplex legend DJ Bone, aka Eric Dulan, has been embracing the new generation in recent years, with collabs turning up with the likes of Deetron and the Hessle Audio crew. Now he's unleashing this incendiary two-tracker for Matt Tolfrey's Leftroom as it approaches its 10th year in the business. 'Cultural Variance' is frisky — well, perhaps a bit more than frisky — and wildly percussive, a twisted Afro vocal running through. 'Faze', meanwhile, is slamming, delay-heavy, with a hint of disco. Hey it's techno, really, but just pitch it down a tad and bob's your uncle.

Nang - We Are Five (The Remixes) - Various - Nang

Continuing the celebration of reaching half a decade in the business, Nang pick five catalogue classics and present them in these new, remixed formats. The EP features a new remix of Hiem & Phil Oakey’s ‘2AM’ by the original ‘wonky’ house pioneer Si Begg, whose bleeping, proto-techno version is a highlight. Following, is Pete Herbert remixing ‘Real Like the Music’ by Danielle Baldelli & DJ Rocca into a killer electronic disco/boogie version, plus extra productions from James Brights and Ichisan.

Coyote Kings Vol. 2 - Various - Coyote

Finishing 2014 the way they finished 2013, Coyote Records have united for a second compilation instalment that features another 10 exclusive productions from the reverent talent crop of instrumental grime producers it repeatedly plunders. Enlisting blossoming names like Yamaneko, Strict Face and Chemist’ll ensure that the collection piques a lot of dudes' interest, but the real joy of it is in discovering assertive bits like Famous Eno’s ‘Puzzlebox Riddim’ or Rejig’s positively baltic ‘Ice Xungle.’

Gon - Native - Dark Manoeuvres

Part two of the 'Infra Audientia' series showcases more of the cherry-picked innovators in the modern intelligent bracket. ‘Gone’ by London-based Native starts the EP with a smooth liquid cut, decorated with an emotional pitched-down vocal. Tinged with melancholy, this is a beautiful piece, although in some places the arrangement is a little odd. The twinkling piano and subtle sub, however, make this a pleasure to listen to. Check out the jazzy second track from Ower too.
