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.
Timely cover of Womack & Womack's classic 'Teardrops' anthem in a midtempo breakbeat stylee, though not really a patch on the original. Remixes come from Jayl Funk, Jump the Gun and label boss man chief D-Funk.
This new hot hardstyle duo have been delivering hit after hit this year. Now signed to Scantraxx Records, they are part of the next generation of acts pushing through the ranks, soon to be headliners in their own right. This new release shows their skills as producers, with an infectious catchy vocal steering away from the obvious, combined with uplifting melodies and impeccable production techniques.
Villalobos under his LoVil guise turns the original inside out with fx, decay, and a truckload of experimentation. Freaky and out there.
