Remember - Something Good & CAPS - Macarize

The studio collaborators summon summery bliss in this record for Macarize. A nice heavy house groove pins things down nicely, so the producers can indulge in some real larger-than-life melodic elements, in the form of scattered electro bleeps that build into a fully-fledged trance harmony, before the breakdown ushers in a vocal that signals even more good times. ‘Remember’ is the electro-progressive equivalent of a cheesy grin on your face.

Laser Cats - Roygreen & Protone - Vandal LTD

Exquisite. Really feeling anything this label stamp their names on, real grown up drum & bass. If you’re a fan of laid-back '90s hip-hop, it won’t be hard to find solace in this track. A cool, profound drum pattern that wouldn't be found too far from a mixtape of Common or Talib Kweli, but with a tiny glimmer of a flickering 170 ever so slightly tapping away in the background. 

Tugboat Edits 5 - Chrissy/TZ - Tugboat Edits

Amiable character from the Chicago scene, Chrissy Murderbot (AKA Chrissy) swaps some of his notorious disco knowledge with production partner TZ for this EP of immediate, party-ready disco edits. Chopped-up, refixed and filtered, these four cuts span reproduced classics and some lesser-known gems. My personal highlights are a clever, rearranged version of the B52s’ ‘Good Stuff’, here disguised as ‘Lovely Stuff’ and a killer, killer wigged-out dub mix of Mike Mareen’s heartbreaking, Euro-disco essential ‘Dancing in the Dark’, here as the cryptic, “Dubbing in the Dark’.
