Born Out Of Cheapness & Frustration - Ellis de Havilland - Bunker 4000

In the strange world of the Hague's Bunker, it's always hard to separate truth from fiction. In this instance let's assume that the late US producer Ellis de Havilland did actually exist and that he made the lo-fi, murky grooves that inhabit 'Cheapness'. Sounding like they were recorded in the basement of a crack house on Chicago's south side, each track verges on the puerile, but de Havilland manages to infuse his grimy acid adventures with just enough Steve Poindexter-style funk to make them palatable.

Pitch Rider - Christian S - Comeme

Christian S's curdled house classic 'Jagos', from 2010, made a recent appearance in Ben UFO's Essential Mix, giving this very underrated artist some deserved exposure. So prepare yourselves for some more of that brilliant pitch-bent, proto-house madness on this first solo release from the Cologne- based DJ/producer. The lead title tune twists broken hi-hat passes through stammering drum programming and foggy DX stabs. Frenetic percussive touches punch through the likes of 'Drifting' and 'Die Durch Die Nase Lachen' and the thoroughly oddball 'Rhumba' takes you to a dizzying finale. Comeme entering a new year and showing that they have no end of new tricks up their sleeves. 

Howl At the Moon - Driftmoon - Pure Trance

Opening the score sheet for Solarstone's new imprint, a now conspicuously on-the-march Driftmoon locks his studio dial to pure trance. To be fair his output is already very much in the vicinity, but on 'Howl At the Moon' those keystone components come evermore accentuated. On his 'Retouch Mix' Solarstone adds his running/pummelling b-line hallmark and further beefs up the payoff. All in all, an impressive opener. 

Renegade Master - Takeydo & Nick Wolanski - NumberOneBeats

Wildchild's 'Renegade Master' was a top twenty hit in the late Nineties and at the time was something of a genre-crossing ear-opener. Fatboy Slim did a great remix in his own inimitable style too and even today both versions still stand as great dancefloor tracks. Nick Wolanski & Takeydo really bring nothing new to the party and in fact leave quite a few good bits behind. Points awarded are for reminding me of the previous versions.
