Ben Watt reactivates his Buzzin' Fly label for a one-off release, a clutch of joyous mixes of 'Golden Ratio' and 'Nathaniel' from his album 'Hendra'. Charles Webster and Ewan Pearson do the honours.
Honestly, the Chicagoan producer Taskforce’s music sounds like it was purpose made to be remixed by Nguzunguzu. I don’t mean that as the cuss it comes off as, it’s just that Taskforce’s cuts are built from the same sort of brutal steely architecture, so the building blocks are all there already. ‘Domain Awareness System’ and ‘Club Tool’ are prime soundsystem monsters — theres no nervousness and no niceties, just big hard blown-out thunder, purpose-built for impact.
After a bit of a pregnant hiatus the Welsh producer Ifan Dafydd returns with ‘Eclipse’, a single-track drop on Push & Run that’s probably best described as a slice of supple, jazzy house that takes more cues from Skalpel than his old housemates.
"Honestly, the beats these two make together are some of the best I've ever heard."
