This Is All We Have - The Thrillseekers - Adjusted Music

A very personal track (it’s a tribute to Steve Helstrip’s father), ‘This Is All We Have’s meaning couldn’t be writ larger. Lamentation blending/contrasting into trance uplift was something The Thrillseekers if not quite invented, then certainly pioneered. Through ‘This Is All We Have’s meditative savannah-ish sub-melodies, hailing female vocals, piano and guitar inflections, and a quite brilliantly structured, spirited final third, he travels that arc superbly again.

Brixton - Breeze - Futureworld

Hardcore legend Breeze puts a new twist on the UK hardcore sound for this release. With a very EDM-inspired progressive melody, this track builds euphoric atmosphere with the breakdown, before peaking to drop to an anti climax when the techy kick pattern returns. The track breaks again, with an even more intense variation on the first break, before snapping back to the cool minimal drop. 

Aventuras - Jorge Velez - Crème Organization

US producer Velez delivers a left-of-centre release for the Dutch label. From the organ-led groove of the title track through the stripped-back ‘Medusa’ and into the rambling ‘Airplanes’, this is for those who like their techno quirky and abstract.

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.
