Rest of Your Life - Darren Styles & Re-con feat Matthew Steeper - TWR

Northern and southern hardcore sounds collide on this collaboration, with the hard and bouncy Northern beats of Re-con meeting the Darren Styles trademark euphoric vocal style. The kick has an almost hardstyle feel to it, with an on-beat bass note, and the tapestop, gliding melody has the cutting-edge stylings of big room house. All this pacing along at a rampant 170bpm, with a catchy vocal courtesy of Matthew Steeper, makes a well-rounded hardcore anthem ready for the summer festival season.

In Gold - Palms Trax - Dekmantel

Like John Heckle, Jay Donaldson aka Palms Trax is skilled in the art of coaxing new possibilities from established Chicago house and Detroit techno tropes. Here, that ability takes shape in contrasting forms with 'People of Tusk', a raw and distorted analogue workout and the title track, a lush, jazzy house affair. Donaldson really impresses however with 'Sumo Acid Crew'; underpinned by a nagging acid line, Donaldson combines cosmic keys and rich disco strings to reach a tripping nirvana. 

Front Row - Hard Driver - B2S records

Tipped for the very top in 2014 by the likes of Coone and Brennan Heart, Hard Driver steps up to deliver the anthem for B2S’s Knock Out event, living up this to hype. This track features a cool male rap lyric, sinister melodies and powerful brutal drops, keeping things raw and dark but still accessible.
