REVIEW: TOBACCO DOCK NEW YEAR'S DAY

DJ Mag starts the new year the right way
Element EP - Palace - Hot Haus/UTTU

Out on Christmas Day, this truly is messianic house music from Unknown to the Unknown's Hot Haus imprint. 'Vision' is so simple it's come full circle into genius territory — just a loop tough enough to crack walnuts in its thighs, a stabbing synth bass and a lady insisting that things will be alright. What else is there? 'Solstice', with its bassline of purest rubber, emulates such dazzling simplicity, before dropping a delectable rave pad just before it makes its excuses and packs up. 'Element' is a little more engineered, more sedate by comparison, perhaps, but nonetheless fabulous for it. So, so good.

Dry Mouth - Vision Fortune - ATP

Forward-thinking music from Vision Fortune with tongue firmly in cheek. Sonically challenged awkwardness in the key of drone.

Phil Coffins - Burgundy Blood - Fresh Herring Records

Manc MC Burgundy Blood's debut album 'Suede Comet' has been leaking tracks for a while now and this is the latest joint — typically dusted insanity ("I'm like Orpheus/pop a tampax in every orifice") and production part Bollywood, part Pete Rock. The album also features cameos from Kool Keith, Sadat X, Meyhem Lauren, X-Ray, Konny Kon & Chalk. Check this and you'll want to check IT. Make sure you do both. 

The Deadfaced Dimension - Angerfist - Masters of Hardcore

The masked leader of the harder styles, ranking No.39 in last year's DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll, Angerfist continues his assault on your ears with a brand-new three-disc album. The title track from this LP sends a clear message of what he stands for. Put simply, hard and fast music. With vocals from MC Nolz, this track is almost a call to arms for the hardcore army to unite and rebel against the mainsteam. This will certainly strike a chord with fans of the harder styles, and no doubt raise roofs around the world for months to come.
