Other cool stuff this week

Just time for a quick Sunday night round-up of other releases worthy of your attention in the past seven days...

Alvina Red & Manuel Perez
Belle Caravelle
Chunky, main room-friendly but non-cheesy house with prog and disco influences

Lovesong EP
Very now-sounding stuff with influences from both house and techno. The Edwin Oosterwal Love Beats Remix of the title track is my fave.

Franky B AKA Cryptic Monkey
Purple Clouds EP
More quality tech-house from Smiley Fingers, though it's the housier DJ Simi remix of The Cloud Digger that's floating my boat the most. That said, the junglist touches (airhorns and rastaman vox) on Resina Boy are also interesting.

J Phlip
Barbary Coast EP
Typically forward-leaning, tech-tinged house grooves from the ever-dependable dirtybird, with a little added hip-house meets ghettotech flava on Bootyberg.
Label: dirtybird

SUOL Mates
A V/A sampler EP from Chopstick & Jonjon's excellent SUOL label, showcasing their knack of blending techier and more soulful elements perfectly. Slo-mo house/nu-disco gem HowthefuckdidIgethome is worth the price of admission on its own.
