The Music Ain't Over - SP23 - SP23

There must be something in the water this month. Here's yet another journey back to the classic rave era, and this time in the company of SP23, who were fellow travellers with the mighty Spiral Tribe back in the days of Castlemorton, the Criminal Justice Bill et al. Titled simply 'SP23', featuring a vocal about the same and released on ... yes, you guessed it ... SP23 Records, this one reminds me of MC Rhymes-era 808 State with its urgent and unashamed white-boy rapper retro-chic. The drums flit fitfully between breakbeat and 4/4 while stabs of vocal and effects clearly designed to form a symbiotic relationship with the chemicals coursing through one's system fire energetically through the mix. Close your eyes and you can just imagine being lost somewhere in a field in Hampshire surrounded by incredibly friendly blokes wearing their dads' high-vis dayglo jackets. 

Gauntlet - Siren - Compost

Macho acid-disco sleaze from Siren — the new project helmed by Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani and Dennis ‘Citizen’ Kane. ‘Gauntlet’ pays an authentic homage to the more daring sound of the Skatt Bros/Boystown Gang and whole subcultural movement attributed to this. Includes an energetic remix from Ray Mang and a solid percussion section from Liquid Liquid’s Sal Principato.

Don’t Leave - Mr Mitch - Planet Mu

Gobstopper Records boss and Boxed club night boss, Mr Mitch, drops a four-tracker of grime instrumentals, but not as we know it. Weird, off-kilter, other. Worth seeking out.

Dreams, Fears & Idols - Manni Dee - Osiris Music

Home to the likes of Kryptic Minds, Monic and Sleeper, OM have been plying a trade in the more esoteric sides of dubstep and its peripheries since 2006. Here, Manni Dee debuts with a four-track EP of pokey technoid machinations. ‘Nicotine Kisses’ is a brilliantly brooding affair: rolling, relentless, badass. And the rest never really lets up, pacey and insistent throughout. So, if you like your bass music techy and techno bassy, then this is the shiznit!
