3Kilo’s Feel It gets the ball rolling in contemporary-style deep house fashion, followed by 4BeatClub’s slow-chuggin’, almost new beat-ish Automaton. Alek Soltirov’s Pulsar Wind rocks sparse drums and busy synths, while Alternate Roots bring a little classic house/garage flava with the female-vocalled, funk-fuelled Different Spaces. Cartoon’s Dive Me sees us back in more contemporary territory with its soulful male vox and fat, squelchy bass, and we stay there for Jon Sweetname’s Muzungu, a synthier cut. Lee Mace’s Liquid Love with its dark, rumbling bass, skippy beats and sweet fem vox is where the garage lovers will want to head first, while if it’s bouncy M1 vibes you’re after look no further than Nacho Riveros’s Let’s Dance. Next To You by Revivis is a crunchy, techy and slightly wonkified affair topped with more soulful male vox, and finally Underfloor’s B.O.W plays us out in trippy, heads-down 4am fashion.
Something for everyone, really… but the Alternate Roots, Lee Mace, 4BeatClub and Nacho Rivros offerings stand out for this reviewer.
Out: This week on Traxsource, everywhere else from 20 July
PS: The more observant among you may notice that the tracks are listed here in alphabetical order of artist, which is a tad unusual… but I checked and that does appear to be the order they’re in.
