The Trip EP - Dan Beaumont - Classic

No one can touch Classic when it’s on form, and with this EP from Dalston Superstore and Dance Tunnel man Dan Beaumont, all concerned are indeed entirely untouchable. ‘Trippy Pumper’ is pulsating, party madness. Any dancefloor that it cannot reduce to vibrating lunacy is worthy of neither your time or effort. ‘Dan’s Jam’ is brooding, tracky disco, eight minutes of sparse, heads-down mania that succeeds despite having no discernible bassline. ‘This Feeling’ drops a little acid into proceedings. Most welcome it is too, as is Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s mix.

Utopia (The I-Robots Reconstructions) - Giorgio Moroder vs I-Robots - Deeplay Digital

Giorgio Moroder had quite a year, with the Daft Punk link up and finally finding himself behind some DJ decks in his Seventies. Here's something from THE Seventies, worked up by Opilec Music boss I-Robots. The track was originally included in a partially mixed album in 1977 and here are newly extended versions. '1977 Reconstruction' is simply the original extended to almost 7 minutes, '2014 Tape Reconstruction' brings things up to date with beefier production.

The Return - Rico Tubbs - Bass=Win

This is indeed the return of Rico Tubbs, although put alongside his bass music classic ‘Gangsters’, it does seem to be going through the motions a tad. The template is the same and the constituent parts - wobbly bass, hype slippy-slidey garage beats, arcade game noises etc - are all present and correct, but it doesn't quite gel. The TJH87 revamp drops it down into a funky thang, Kepikei employs a deep burrowing bass, hardcore yelps and low-slung breaks for an understated tech-funk DJ tool, and Kraymer's turn is an undesirable trappist melee. Patchy.
