BEHIND THE SCENE: BOOTSHAUS

Lush (Original Mix) - Axis - Enhanced Progressive

Enhanced drops another particularly effective electro-trance-EDM fusion that comes loaded with some particularly spiky, stomping grooves, plus an '80s-drenched riff in the chorus that lifts it into ‘anthem’ territory. A functional peaktime homerun that’ll work on an assortment of dancefloors.

Bassline Rudeboy Punk - Punkture - Rat Records

Acid-flecked vocal monster in a Prodigy stylee from London-based MC Punkture. A brace of house/garage mixes from Paleface tone down the grimy noisenik tendencies of the original to complete the package.

There Is No Way - Dorian - New Playaz

Playaz' little sister label is rapidly gaining support, and with releases like this it is clear to see why. This is a gloriously dark roller with a silky, luxurious vibe. The gorgeous female vocal works with a cannily-placed layer of soft pads to lift the bassline from its depths, and mirror its nasty undertone. It feels weighty, full-bodied and decadent, and when it drops no-one will be able to resist a good old-fashioned skank.

Angel EP - Doctor Jeep - Trouble & Bass Recordings

Andre Lira, aka Doctor Jeep, is a New York-based producer ploughing a similar house-influenced broken beat furrow to sometime collaborator Tony Quattro. 'Angel' is a rolling, dubbed out, tech-flavoured 808 groove with extra urban attitude, while 'Control' plumps for eclectic beats, doomcore bass and industrial-strength percussion. Meanwhile, 'Grim Reaper' is like a lucid nightmare in the seventh layer of Hades, complete with machine-tooled rhythms, wigged out snatches of half-heard vocal and deathly effects. A remix of 'Angel' by Bristol's Archive is the best track on the package, the UK producer stripping back the original's noizenik tendencies for a classy little reworking that ticks all the right boxes.
