You-Boat EP (Cable Recordings)
Dark, techy, glitchy, groovy
Sorry I Missed The Sky EP
(Freak n' Chic)
Elastik Hour is like a Sueno Latino for 2010. Sort of.
Let The Bass Kick
Upbeat, big silly party breaks all the way from West Edmonton, Canada. Fire it up!
Out Of Order EP
(Council House Recordings)
More tweaky, tech-y bizniss, but with a slightly funkier vibe on Space Port. Only the second release on the fledgling Council House imprint.
Greatest Tits EP (Wolf + Lamb)
The ever on-point Wolf + Lamb deliver a very varied (as in stylistically, not quality-wise) EP with jazzy, soulful and techy grooves all snuggling up together. Proper quality deep house and a great EP title too!
Hyper Hyper EP (Hospital)
The electro-D&B of the title track doesn't do it for me so much, but b-side Set Me Free is worth checking if you woke up this particular Sunday thinking "I'd like some epic but laidback atmospheric drum & bass to fuel my next smokin' session, please"
Orienta-Rhythm feat Joi Cardwell
Happy 2010 (King Street)
An uplifting vocal house classic from Ms Cardwell gets three new mixes from Timmy Vegas
Freaks Show EP (Expressillon)
Three-tracker taking in electrohouse (meh), breaks (okay) and, on Bassline Circus, a neat line in stomach-churning, gypsy-infused dubstep (the reason it's here)
Perching Bird EP (Automat-X Records)
A solid-enough tech-houser in three mixes, one for those who like it glitchy and off-kilter (ie, not me so much but I can see the appeal)
Bad Pony Spring Sampler (Bad Pony)
Six artists, six tracks. Post-minimal, tech-y, very now. Will be big with Europeans under 30.
Out: All of the above were fresh in your record shops and digital download stores this past seven days…
