Feelin' High - Jason Laidback - Nightprowl

London-based producer Jason Laidback is best known as one half of funky breakbeat heroes Slyde. Here he takes a fresh look at the broken beat template and delivers a killer blast of washed-out synthwork, perfectly sculpted low-end and spiky percussive cool, all topped off with a wicked little Erykah Badu sample. This is the second release on Laidback's new Nightprowl label, and on this evidence we could be looking at a spawning ground for upfront, forward-thinking breakbeats to rival the Stanton Warriors' reborn Punks imprint.

Relapse EP - Monoblok&PSLKTR - Meant Records

French duo Monoblok&PSLKTR are back on Meant with an EP of darkwave/goth dance tracks accompanied by a bunch of mixes from the likes of Arnaud Rebotini, My Favorite Robot and Rework. Highlights come from Blackstrobe’s Arnaud Rebotini, who works a cool, noir-ish touch into ’Walking Disaster’ and a tense disco-dub from Canadian trio, My Favorite Robot. All round good effort with strong supporting remixes and solid original productions too.

Soundboy - Lady Waks & Mutant Breakz feat Kathika - In Beat We Trust Music

Mighty Russian breakbeat queen Lady Waks here teams up with Spain's Mutant Breakz for a ravey dose of 808 boom. Vocalist Kathika, of hyped UK festival circus nutters Slamboree, drops a rough-and-ready rap vocal while searing trap-style drops raise the energy levels. Then it's on to the killer chorus, Kathika's laidback urban cool blowing up over '90s-style keys and classy synth work. A floor filler for sure.

Wet Me - Adrenalinez - Barely Legal Records

Ill-advised trance-breaks with dated dubstep-style wobble bass and "funky" synth licks from the Spanish producer. There's some nice production here, but a worrying detachment from current sounds.
