The Cratebug edits team tackle new and updated treatments of perennial disco classics such as Martin Circus' 'Disco Circus' and Macho's 'I'm A Man'.
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.
Sporting a fully cohesive, brilliantly primed set of beats, bass and perc loops, South Africa's Zaxx gathers a storm. Cranking the tension, mid-break it swallows a box of fireworks… with predictable end results.
Few artists have such an explosive effect on the scene so quickly, but since signing to the mighty Ram little over a year ago, Anglo/Dutch outfit June Miller have gained complete recognition, bringing us to the second offering from the label in this month's reviews. This stunning vocal track has thundered in the sets of boss Andy C since the summer, and is finally out for release. Big bass, monstrous drops and perfect production.
