Like the stoned cowboy said… "Blimey, is it time for another round-up already?" Well, yes, it is. So here are some other releases this week that are worthy of your attention…
Cactus Twisters give us Gate 7, a floor-oriented deep techno cut on Daniel Mehes' Dubmetrical imprint, with more full-on remixes from Sonate and Andy Notalez…the I'm Gone EP from DOOD on Fiveleg Music is another clubby techno offering, three tracks in six mixes with the deep acid sleaze of Backbay Dub the standout for me… Alex Arnout's Dogmatik serve up some very solid deep/tech house in the form of the Flo Jam EP from Dusky, a four-tracker with the deep garage-tinged Mystics my personal pick of the crop… Electricano releases a second single from his Insane Dimension album, Other Colour – pick from glitchy (original), proggy (Satoshi Fumi) or deep (Antifish) house, oh and it comes on Spring Tube… Jaydee (yes, that Jaydee, of Plastic Dreams fame!) is all about big room house with tons of rave/nu-NRG, er, energy these days, judging by Nonstop on Ink Records – it's like 1994 all over again… Bid Muzik stick to their commercial disco-house/nu-boogie guns with Kid Vibes' Disco Decisions… Coffee from Koffee, coming on new label Basemental Records, does that New York "deep/soulful house with poetic vocals" thing (only we're talking more Millie Jackson that Maya Angelou here) with mixes by no lesser a personage than disco legend John Morales… and finally for today, those Russian masters of all things mellow Incepto Smooth give us the Tribute EP from Omahua, a five-track EP of chilled breaks and cinematic, ambient soundscapes. But in a good way.
With THANKS ALSO this week to: A Rodriguez, Carlo Galliani, Daladie, Davy Dee, DJ Spookz, Emeskay, Enrico Saba AKA C_Sky, Filthy Rich, Fresh Produce, Haldo feat Georgia Cee, Humanate, Kiko, Luthier, Nebster, New Neon, On + Off, SanFranDisco and Sergio Trillini… as ever there's bound to be some gems in there that I've managed to overlook but there's only so many hours in the day
