Alone - Bungle - 31 Records

For many the name conjures a nostalgic scruffy bear, but for those who know, Bungle is the name of a brilliant Brazilian. The man just can’t produce anything other than excellence, no matter which sub-genre he dips into. ‘Alone’ is a rich tapestry of textures and layers, the undercurrent is a mix of deep, vibrating shuffles, with a slightly muffled break in the mid and with clean and crisp tiny bites of synths and samples at the top.  

Celebrate Life - Eelke Kleijn - Spinnin’ Deep

Spinnin’s idea of ‘deep’ is actually an epic hands-in-the-air progressive record, and Eelke Kleijn delivers a irresistibly emotive effort here. Built around a cleverly deployed guitar lick, it’ll function both as a main room house weapon, as well a peaktime indulgence for some of the deeper DJs.

Group V/Despot - Slewis - Off Out

I’ve always wondered what it was that Steve Braiden would pick to properly represent and invest in releasing on his own label, that wasn’t his own productions. I never felt that knowing his taste through his radio show was really enough to go on, and Slewis’ two-tracker proves me right, the sort of industrial-heavy stomper I only half had him pegged for. Insistent pounding kick-drums jaggedly set off with grainy chord pulsations.

Anaconda Flow - Legowelt - Technicolour

I love the fact that when Legowelt comes back, he comes back with at least four different records on four different labels that are all extremely good. It’s testament to his pull, obviously, but ‘Never Not Know U’ is mind-bogglingly great.
