APRIL'S HIGH FIVE

EASTER IS UPON US! BUNNY HOP DOWN TO ONE OF THESE...
The Chronicles - Kenny Larkin - Rush Hour

Less a re-release than a bona fide public service, this repressing of tracks from Kenny Larkin's seminal 'The Chronicles' deserves a spot in everyone's collection. Perfection.

Let Me Go (Vintage & Morelli Remix) - LTN feat Arielle Maren - Enhanced Progressive

While LTN’s original situated itself more on the more sugary trance spectrum, this rework from Vintage & Morelli swaps out the big melodic hooks for a more stripped-back drive, a pulsing tech house bassline and a smooth, glossy sheen of melody this time around, with it all dropping away for a proper progressive trance breakdown. Cleverly balanced in its appeal. 

Grey Skies (Remixes) EP - S.R. Krebs - Her Majesty's Ship

Slow industrial/EBM themes on this new EP from Her Majesty’s Ship. Highlights are the vocal and dub mixes from Phantasy’s Nadia Kasaba.

Bide EP - Lo Shea - Never Learnt

As custodian of Sheffield's eminent warehouse venue Hope Works, Liam O'Shea wears his impeccable taste very much on his sleeve. The four tracks here for Never Learnt show, if further evidence were needed, that his recorded material is beyond reproach too. 'Apples' is a repetitive, string-laden expanse, like Pepe Bradock's benchmark for such things, 'Deep Burnt'. 'Schoolin'' with its loose, almost wild percussion is hefty party gear, but 'Take 2' takes it, a moody, shuffling masterstroke. Sterling work, this.
