So many tunes, so little time 33
You know the deal… the best of the rest of this week's releases
We start off on a dubstep tip with Tears, a superbly deep, dark and moody rumbler that comes from Blueprint courtesy of Section 8 Dub… Southpark Records take time out from all that bouncy tech-house to deliver two more laidback, drummy and Afro-tinged workouts in the form of the Stereo Abidjan EP by Brekowsky & Jonnynes… Carl Taylor then drags us onto the disco-tastic floors with Debbie's Groove, a heavy-hitting, high-octane Sneak-ish roller on EPM Music complete with the happy-clappiest Robert Hood remix this reviewer's ever heard! Click the label link to hear it for yourself… but if that's all a bit much and you like your house music more on the horizontal side then Cyanwave's Anxiety Of Acceleration should suit your needs nicely, fine slab of uber-deep vibes that it is… Daniel Selfmade's Two Cats EP is home to three dark, rolling tech-house cuts and comes on Infamous Recordings… sticking with the techy vibes we have the Rock It EP from Gaga, with two fierce, almost Trade-y cuts for the tuffer tech-house floors, coming on 1605 Music Therapy… pause…
resume… Hugo Ibarra's four-track Heavenly EP for Stripped Digital is one that'll delight the progressive house diehards… meanwhile sister label Hype Muzik surprise us with the Brothers & Sisters EP by Jack Steinel, which is also in a Balearic/prog kinda vein and is, I think, the deepest and most melodic release I've heard from the label yet… you wouldn't say the same about Lissat & Voltaxx's Cuckoo EP for Great Stuff, which instead sees US back in tuff, rolling tech-house territory, and THEM serving up a new White Chocolate Rework of last year's summer anthem Sunken Bells Of Ibiza as one of the EP's three tracks… aah, now HERE's what happened to the third in Spring Tube's set of three third-anniversary EPs! The I Amsterdam EP features three tracks in a more 'typically Spring Tube' proggy vein than the other two, and funnily enough comes from an artist called Shimmer, though presumably not the same one from 1993 I was comparing Evan Iff's single to earlier in the week… and finally for this week, Tsezar brings us a single that's called French In America and comes on Bid Muzik, so you almost certainly don't need me to tell you that high-octane filter disco is the order of the day.
With THANKS ALSO this week to: Audio KoDe, Axel Karakasis, Chris Page, Dosem, Dualitik, FaltyDL, Forest, Hexadecimal, Ilya Korman, Jan Van Lier, Lo Fi Beats, Lydecker, Madutec, Marcos Cruz & Danny Martin, Maverickz, Namy feat Josh Milan, Rude Audio, Sergio Marini & Lucas, Sound Gypsy, thatmanmonkz, The Barking Dogs and Tom Hades. As ever, sorry if you didn't make the cut this week, I'm sure there's some splendid tuneage I've cruelly overlooked in there but there's only so many hours in the day!
