CLICK TITLE TO LISTEN

Soul of Hex – The Muth (Freerange)

Can never get away from a disco cut, this is inspired and not very obvious stuff.

 

Deep’a & Biri – Ritual (Transmat)

Driving deep techno, what’s not to like ;) the vocal haunt really drew me into this record

 

Royer – Éloge de l’oisiveté (Closer)

The keys and synths marry so perfectly in this but are understated almost underneath those 909’s!

 

Nitam – Retold (Untertom)

Been playing this one out so much recently, really spot on with what I’m feeling at the moment. It sounds mega in a club too!

 

Mike Denhert – Meckwiki (Clone Basement Series)

Dehnert really never fails, this has to be one of my favourites from him. So big

 

Bwana – Akira’s Light (LuckyMe)

One of my favourite producers at the moment makes an album based around one of my favourite films, it was always going to be good. Even if you’re into anime, this is a fantastic album.

 

Benedikt Frey – The Lobbyist (ESP Institute)

Love how dark this goes, staggered percussion. Not played this out yet, it’s got to be the right time I guess, would love to hear it in a dark room though

 

Sarabi – Koko’s Vibration (Highlife World Series)

It’s sunny as hell today in London and this is such a ridiculous record for that. Put me at a festival with a drink now please.

 

Theo Kottis – Into the Wild (Anjunadeep)

Another one of my favourite producers, Theo has got so much in his locker it’s a bit scary. A top lad, can’t wait to play with him & the Moda boys again next Saturday!

 

DJ Wave – Do It (Lobster Theremin)

The synth line in this is ridiculous, whole EP is world class.
