Damiano von Erckert & Tito Wun - Mr Pink What Have You Been Smokin’? [ava]
Areas of funk and soul pressure colliding in heady storms, patches of Moodymann, high levels of misplaced nostalgia for 70s New York.
Trus’me - Treat Me Right [Prime Numbers]
A bright and fulfilling start but with clouds of expectation dispersing around track 3, revealing an album wholly unpredictable and unlike anything we’d expect from this time of year.
Outboxx - TBA [Idle Hands]
Mild euophoria caused by streams of piano lines coming in from the West, dispersing any scepticism about the need for more vocal-led slow house throughout the day.
Low Jack - Free Pyjamas EP [Delsin]
Harsh and fucked up in places with hints of past Delsin efforts pushing through right to the fore. Warehouse owners should probably stay indoors.
Dadub - You Are Eternity [Stroboscopic Artefacts]
The apocalypse vs. the Mad Professor: thunderous bass of biblical proportions, reverb hailing down from the skies, floods of static, tremors felt throughout end of year lists.
Alex Coulton - Adventures in 4x4 [Hypercolour LTD]
Unexpectedly deep and dark and dubby melodic stabs sure to spread like wildfire throughout dancefloors and social media and such and such.
