Darkforme EP - Paul Blandford - Death Proof Recordings

'Minimal' doesn't really have small enough connotations to accurately describe the insistently sparse attack of 'Haunch'. The hypnotic bassline merges with the drum track to form a kind of soft wall of sound that grows harder the more it continues to play. Paul Blandford is the co-owner of the label and this is his first release under his own name, with his own sound. The result is some delicious dubby darkness. 

Candle Coast EP - Crackazat - Local Talk

Sure, there are points on his ‘Candle Coast EP’ where Ben Jacobs sounds like a lot of other producers making happy, overtly musical 4/4, but then there’s also ‘Dancrodile’ - a guitar-flecked marimba-driven funkster of a production that’s a proven grey-London-morning-pick-me-up. It’s the glaring hit in the middle of a solid three-tracker that just builds and builds melodically to the point where you can actually taste the serotonin seeping into your central nervous system. 

Animals - Pleasure Planet - Throne Of Blood

Pleasure Planet is Andrew Potter of Populette notoriety and Brian Hersey, turning out a girthsome-yet-understated three-tracker for the peerless Throne Of Blood. In fact, the day this Brooklyn imprint sets a foot wrong, it may usher in the end of days. It's certainly not today, anyways, as this vintage house moodiness is sterling. 'Animals' even features the spectacular Kim Ann Foxman on vocals, so what could possibly be not to like? '6AMATM' chugs in beautifully, while 'Black Shades For White Nights' mooches about as if it owns the place. 

Just Call Me - Birdee - Vicious Bitch

Birdee has had quite a bit of exposure for his previous releases on Southern Fried, with Radio 1 airplay and support from the likes of Laidback Luke and Crookers. 'Just Call Me' is an accomplished bit of what is probably called 'electro house' by Beatport, but in fact the subtle blend of dirty basslines and funky grooves goes beyond that limiting term. It's the funk that is brought to the for in Fare Soldi's remix, which really kicks things into overdrive.
