Well Cut 001 EP - Moodymanc Vs Lenny Middles - Well Cut Records

The first salvo from Moodymanc's very own Well Cut Records finds the Dubble D don and 2020 Soundsystem mainstay embracing his Balearic chops with 'Tarriff', an unctuous and blissful slo-mo houser, flecked with tranquilised pianos. The party then begins in earnest with 'Minor Madness', a bumping chunk of dancefloor catnip, before Detroit stabs and subtle acid underpin a sensory overload in 'Mirror', a collab with Lenny Middles. Middles also pitches up on 'Entertainer', all tough rave chords. Handle with much care.

Dumbo Dumbo/Miracle - Standard Planets & Arthur’s Landing - Fin A Dee Six

After a collaborative effort with krautrock legend, Harald Grosskopf (Ashra/Cosmic Jokers), Standard Planets team up with Arthur Russell affiliates, Arthur’s Landing, for the release of this interesting, no-wave oddity. Of historical note, the preparation for ‘Dumbo Dumbo’ was completed, in parallel, during the fabled Dinosaur L sessions of 1978, but shelved until now, with Arthur’s Landing piecing together the remnants; you can clearly hear the groundwork, now given a fitting restoration. To accompany, the coiling ‘Miracle’ holds an exquisite charm that suggests the sublime synth-pop stamp of Talk Talk.

Sum of its Parts - MarQ Spekt & Blockhead - HipNott Records

Enjoying the impoliteness of those new producers, obviously tutored in the ways of golden-age '90s hip-hop production but unable with the dazzling possibilities and lack of limitations inherent in modern recording technology to exactly replicate those sounds, ending up with something just as gritty and heavy but in a way more unmannered, more out of control. Blockhead opens up some wonderfully rusty taps on 'Sum of its Parts' and it suits MarQ's aggressive, slightly obnoxious rhyming a treat. The album 'JustPlayWitItt' is out now and is a great suite of focused rage, benefitting entirely from the one-producer mentality so many new reclaimers of rap seem to be revelling in. I dig it.

Tremor (LNY TNZ Remix) - Dimitri Vegas & Martin Garrix & Like Mike - CDR

The LNY TNZ guys are on fire at the moment and this unofficial remix is another example why. Awesome trap-meets-hardstyle vibe!
