Anchors (remixes) - Tritonal - Enhanced Recordings

If there ever was a release you had to force yourself to listen to through sheer professional stubbornness, this has to be up there. The superbly named Noisestorm flobs out a pop and bass remix which sounds like a fairy with severe food poisoning letting out a fart. Making matters worse, the Unlike Pluto remix is insipid, floppy and dull.

Change Please - FD - Spearhead

As the imprint enters its centenary year they celebrate their continued success with a debut release from FD. A soulful and jazzy roller with Sunday morning listening stamped all over it.

Feelin' High - Jason Laidback - Nightprowl

London-based producer Jason Laidback is best known as one half of funky breakbeat heroes Slyde. Here he takes a fresh look at the broken beat template and delivers a killer blast of washed-out synthwork, perfectly sculpted low-end and spiky percussive cool, all topped off with a wicked little Erykah Badu sample. This is the second release on Laidback's new Nightprowl label, and on this evidence we could be looking at a spawning ground for upfront, forward-thinking breakbeats to rival the Stanton Warriors' reborn Punks imprint.

Deep Down Inside - Marten Horger - Free download

This brooding trip into the heart of darkness was intended to be on a recent Horger release, but for legal reasons is now available for free via the big man's Facebook page. All mesmeric organ riff, furtive atmospherics and bully boy sub, it's the more-is-less principle exemplified, a mood-shifter extraordinaire for selectors who like to throw their audience a supremely cultured curveball or two in-between the bangers. Go find.
