Kachiri EP - Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca - Nein Records

Requiring little intro to the disco obsessives amongst you, the legend of the era’s ‘afro cosmic’ sound, Daniele Baldelli, strikes up a tight partnership with DJ Rocca on this tidy EP release. Keeping to a familiar mid-tempo throughout, the ‘Kachiri EP’ takes cues from new beat, EBM and minimal-wave with an extra modern production touch to cope with current club demands. A chugging mix from Tronik Youth is included to complete another solid release for the label.

Chemotaxis - Etch - Space + Time

You can precisely hear his old school influences pouring out into this EP, this is jungle with a real classy vibe. The bass is slow, intensely deep and beautifully mellowing, while the drums are crisp and stunningly vibrant against the rest of the track. Understated layers of echoing percussion and floating chords give this track an ethereal elegance which balances out a piece which would otherwise be on the heavy and dark side. 

It's On You (Se7en Deadly Breaks Remix) - Janette Slack & Adsorb - Slack Tracks

Classy little breakbeat garage remix from the Maidenhead-based duo, featuring deep chords, sick rolling organ bass and tasty little piano licks and riffs. A significant update on the Se7en Deadly Breaks sound that should see them starting to make waves again.

Fiber Optic EP - Barely Alive - Disciple Recordings

Big bouncy mainstream dubstep from the BA boys. ‘Zombie Hunter’ keeps it cool and rowdy with a distinctly gangsta flex, rinsed with the usual mid-range squelches, screeches and distortion. ‘Boston Shit’ flips upside-down for a twerk-off, and ‘Laser Up’ ratchets up the vibe further, whilst the Habstrakt remix fails to beat it.
