So many tunes, so little time 13

Okay, got an absolute mountain of new tuneage to get through this week… but first, here's some of the goodies we didn't get round to last week.

Alex M – Slight Shiver EP
A retrofied house three-tracker here from Four Fingers Hand that wears its early Chicago influences on its sleeve. I'm not 100% convinced by the vocal on lead cut In Night to be honest, despite some great sounds otherwise, but I'm liking Who, a funky-assed, stripped-down drum workout.

Kerkez – Mandarin Orange EP
Some leftfield-leaning deep house vibes here from the producer who brought us Garage Loop a few months back. Trails his forthcoming long-player, Boi.

Marco Finotello ft Lily Latuheru – Weooh
The vocal on this one's a bit poppy for these ears but if you can handle that, then some decent west coast-ish house vibes lurk beneath! Five mixes to choose from, but sadly no instrumental (though they were kind enough to also send over an unreleased, deeper Mpeshnyk Remix that's really rather good).

Marissa Guzman – Joy Road (Remixes)
Another one from the poppier end of the west coast house spectrum, with eight tracks in a total of 17 mixes. 17 mixes! So with rubs from Kerri Chandler, Mr V, Corduroy Mavericks and Black Coffee, plus a host of lesser-known names, I'm sure you'll find something to play…

Onionz – NY Thunder
The legendary Onionz serves up some tuff techy/tribal/prog vibes on Canada's Mile End. Worth checking if that's your bag for sure.

Sean Biddle & Mike Gillenwater – Party!
More of Nocturnal Recordings' trademark uptempo, party-hearty jacking disco-house stylings, from two producers well known for exactly that.

Shane Long & Kane Harris – You Got Meh
Some decent tech-house vibes here on Endemic Digital, with the slighty deeper Oki Noki Remix the pick of the crop for me.

YokoO – Blinded EP
Some jackin' deep/tech house from Julian Beltzun, AKA YokoO, coming on 22 Digit, who haven't been on here for a while so sorry this didn't get a bigger review lads! But it's strong stuff all the same, with Kai Limberger's deeper rub and Graham Laverty's big, dark bass throbber particularly worthy of your attention.

Zoo Brazil – Selected
A techno/tech-house groover from Sweden's Zoo Brazil, aimed fair and square at the dancefloor with its rave sirens. D.Ramirez provides a no-nonsense driving Tekno Disko Remix.
