Till I Die - The Prophet - Scantraxx Recordz

Great new bouncy hardstyle release here from one of the original pioneers of the hardstyle scene, featuring a pitch-bending main melody hook and nasty drops.

Stay Home - Submerse - Project Mooncircle

The thing I’ve found most amazing about Submerse’s music this week is that he manages to make his percussion sound cluttered even though there’s absolutely nothing to it. His new EP is remarkably lush, still emotionally fragile and very carefully programmed.

Soul Plonk EP - Cliff Lothar - Omnidisc

2013’s ‘White Savage’ on Viewlexx was one of the best debut records of the past decade, but Cliff Lothar doesn’t climb the same heights with ‘Soul Plonk’. The title track is all shifting tones and a buzzing bass that unfortunately sounds like Laurent Garnier’s ‘Sound of the Big Babou’ played at half speed.  ‘Slippin'’ is at best average hollowed-out house, with a grungy bass and a repetitive vocal sample, while ‘Bona Feed’ is a step in the right direction with its fusion of high-pitched notes and ominous bass rumble. Overall though, it’s a disappointing release. 

 
'Redtones EP' - DJ QU - Strength

"Qu, perennial master of his own space. I can always tell when a Qu record comes on. Sounds like no other."
