Sound of Music (Bass Mix) - Deekline - Hot Cakes

A brutally minimalistic melange of future rave energy and 808 boom, 'Sound of Music' is the best thing breakbeat hero Deekline has done in years, and that's saying something. Killer clipped, tuned percussion and ravey piano battle it out with searing synth work for the title of most infectious riff while tough drums, fearsome low-end and trap style percussion keep the bodies moving. The vocal is one of those iconic diva samples — think The Prodigy's 'Warrior Dance' — culled no doubt from some little-known house offering from the early '90s. Absolutely essential stuff from the London-based producer. 

Communication - En - Soo Wavey

Newcomer En pitches up as the first guest artist on Vin Sol and Matrixxman's Soo Wavey label. '4U' on the B-side is a jacking Detroit groove in the very finest tradition. It's possibly a masterpiece.

Musique/Let the Rain Pour - Purple Disco Machine - OFF Recordings

Seasonal house/disco hybrid that arouses Stardust memories via filtered loops and an impassioned vocal performance from Oli Rose.

The Greyhounds - Mosca - Not So Much

Mosca's first release on his spanking new Not So Much imprint was decent, but this second excursion is a far more interesting proposition. The Greyhounds' big-room thunderousness sounds like dub-heavy filler, at first, but when it breaks into ambitious, melancholy strings, it becomes a different animal entirely – suddenly it's all mood and menace, and it's quite superb. Over, Clinical Trial is sturdy, steadying fare, a dark and dangerous thing of bleak beauty.
