'Awakening (Giuseppe Ottaviani Remix)' - WINKEE - Pure Trance

"A cut from my forthcoming 'Electronic Architecture³' album from one of the scene's most consistent production teams — Finland's Winkee. Thoughtfully remixed by my favourite Italian."

Last Gasp - Epiphany - A Harmless Deed

This eighth release from A Harmless Deed comes courtesy of the label’s co-founder, Argentinean, Madrid-raised Damian Schwartz, under his guise as Epiphany (Schwartz has run the imprint with Jose Cabrera since 2012, presenting tracks from the likes of Fred P and Marcos Cabral). 'Let the Boys Be' is gently acidic, classic by both nature and construction, emotional and oh-so-very deep, while 'Player' too evokes the fine house music of decades gone by, tingling ride cymbals and a dirty synth cutting through. Very nice.

Mandroid - Mediks & Shimon - AudioPorn Records

Heavy, hard and fast. Machinery gone wild. This track literally sounds like the entire electrical contents of your house have joined forces to create some kind of killing appliance army, and they’re coming for you...

Somersaults - Logistics - Hospital Records

You can always rely on Hospital to add a drop of golden fun to the ever-darkening scene. Logistics returns to his solo endeavours for this release, using the classic imprint blueprint, which he himself helped to create. The track is reminiscent of a time when drum & bass haunts were filled with lovely uplifting chords, its euphoric bassline inducing nostalgia. The real gem on this EP however, is the flip ‘Triangles’.
