Brame and Hamo’s #001 (Vinyl Only, Suckas)

I stared at this record for two weeks, three weeks, then a month. It can't be that good, can it? It can. It isn't this well-produced, is it? It is. People aren't already going...

Gareth Whitehead, Marshall Jefferson and Robert Owens: How Can I

For me, it's a rarity to come across a dance music single where the original mix actually outshines the remixes! But, when you've got Marshall Jefferson on production and Robert Owens on vocals, what...

Andre Bonsor: Elements of Nature (Adaptation)

Hallelujah - it's a release that is based around actual melodies rather than sampling! Andre Bonsor is no stranger to the world of House Music, being a member of Schmoov! and also having worked...

Sheer Grooveability: Angel In Disguise by Maritri

Can you feel nostalgia for something you didn't experience firsthand? I'm a big fan of the Soulful House sound of Global Soul Music (and before it Tea Party Music) and Ian Friday, but I...

Uncompromising Techno from Tunnel’s Diaspora EP

In a dance music landscape which seems to be becoming more musically conservative by the day, it's always hugely refreshing to hear something uncompromising and different. Chicago's own Tunnel has been steadily building the...

Beyond This Life: Blue Six’s Signs and Wonders

Jay Denes, recording exclusively (and rarely) these days as Blue Six, is one of the most remarkable artists in dance music. I've always been fascinated with the guy's records and the heady philosophy behind...

Praising the Frique: The Disco Never Dies EP from Farris Wheel

If I had to nominate just one DJ to represent everything Chicago stands for as a city, a people and a musical sanctuary, that DJ would be Frique. Let me explain for those from...

Right on the heels of the exciting "Twilight People", Robert Owens is back, delivering fresh vocals alongside sizzling techy production by Atjazz, and Slope! You might rock all three interpretations over the course of...

Dave Miller ft. Kelly Hayden: Winding Rhodes EP

Dave Miller puts together four slabs of heavy Deep House here, built largely around the strong vocal of Kelly Hayden. "Take What You Want" is a fierce tune - catchy, soulful, danceable - basically...

Copyright ft. Imaani: Nobody

Copyright has reached a certain level of notoriety that it's hard to explain to people who ain't there yet but would like to be. Together with a few other names - Dennis Ferrer is...

This is a neat limited release package: a 200 issue pressing of a pair of brilliant remixes from Andy Vaz's Straight Vacationing LP. Patrice Scott's remix is stunning: it opens with a fuzzy 303...
