Evolutionz (Ran D Remix) - D Block & S Te Fan feat Mc Villain - Scantraxx Evolution

D Block & S-Te-Fan drop their 'X RAW EP' on the Evolution label — a full EP of remixes of their biggest tracks, drafting in the hottest acts on the rawstyle scene to give them a fresh spin for 2014. My pick of the bunch is this Ran-D remix, which twists and distorts 'Villain’s original vocal, adding some killer drops and as always impeccable production by Ran-D, delivering accessible rawstyle for the masses.

Reject (Soundprank Remix) - Breame - Always Alive

While Breame’s original is a quality example of groove-driven electro trance, Soundprank’s remix steps it up a notch with an extra heavy dose of electro grunt. While the predictable melodic elements are largely left intact, it’s that buzzsaw bassline kicking in after the first drop that really packs a punch.

Trust Me / Only Time Will Tell (DJ Spinna & Ross Crouch remixes) - The Sunburst Band - Z Records

Under the production guidance of Dave ‘Joey Negro’ Lee, his boogie / disco troupe, The Sunburst Band, front the next Z Records release. The first release of 2014 for the London-based band sees new versions of previous, soulful faves, ‘Trust Me’ and ‘Only Time Will Tell’ get new production twists from veteran hip-hop to house DJ, Spinna, and house head Ross Couch. Spinna’s remixes steal the show, produced in a style that nods to vintage Trax and DJ International with their aptly names ‘Nostalgic Dub’ and ‘Nostalgic Vocal’ versions.

’11 Put Aside - Cured Pink - Another Dark Age

 Hailing from Australia, Another Dark Age delivers deranged electronix from Cured Pink. ‘As Enderie Nuatal’ is the most immediate track on this release, but its alarm bell rings, skewed, hyperactive rhythm and tortured vocal accompaniment sound like Mark E Smith on angel dust jamming with Richard H Kirk. ‘Jogjakarta Runny Dog’ doesn’t make any concessions towards the dancefloor and instead offers wave upon wave of deranged noise.
