Don’t Tell Me No Lies - Whole Truth - Whole Truth Records

Ironically amidst the dub it’s the acidic nu disco of ‘Truth Groove’ that stands out here. Squelching and parping in all the right places.

Drunken Master - Psyko Punkz feat Dope D.O.D - Shadow Mask Music

The Dutch hardstyle duo are back with another monster hard hit, this time teaming up with fellow Dutch hip-hop trio Dope D.O.D. The rough and raw vocals compliment the tough beats perfectly, and the simple yet effective on-beat melody is reminiscent of Psyko Punkz's early hits. A sure-fire hit in the hard scene, and with remixes forthcoming from some of the biggest artists in the wider dance music scene, this could well be a break-out hit for the guys.

Remember - Something Good & CAPS - Macarize

The studio collaborators summon summery bliss in this record for Macarize. A nice heavy house groove pins things down nicely, so the producers can indulge in some real larger-than-life melodic elements, in the form of scattered electro bleeps that build into a fully-fledged trance harmony, before the breakdown ushers in a vocal that signals even more good times. ‘Remember’ is the electro-progressive equivalent of a cheesy grin on your face.

Duster EP - Midland - Aus Music

Though not the first time Harry Agius has turned out for Will Saul's Aus Music, this is patently the finest. Loose of beats, as ever, Agius throws down all he's got for 'Duster', the title track lush with a heart-rending string section melding with the machine noises. Over, 'Reflex' appears just to be noise, all scattered percussion, but when the four drops, it ties together like Jeff Lebowski's rug, like some digital Afrobeat. 'Pitch Drift', meanwhile, with its pulsing synths and woozy fire-alarm pads, has a true depth of funk. This is a piece of work indeed.
