'Stefan Goldmann - Lunatic Fringe'
Stefan Goldmann's second release on his label 'Macro' conforms with the current trend of dubby influences in house and techno. A hypnotic synth line weaves in and out of a dub bass and an eerie choir vocal adds an atmosphere which sounds extraordinary on the dancefloor.
'Matthew Dear - Don & Sherri'
The stand-out track on Dear's recent album 'Asa Breed' gets a full release on Ghostly Interntational with some excellent remixes from M.A.N.D.Y. & Hot Chip. An intelligent vocal added to a bouncy beat and bassline (that wouldn't sound out of place in one of his Audion outings) equals a top track.
'Kaos - Panopeeps'
'Panopeeps' is featured on two of my favourite albums this year, the new 'Secretsundaze Volume 1' and Ewan Pearson's 'Fabric 25'. It's the stand-out track on both, check it out.
'New Order - Confusion (Ricardo Villalobos Mix)'
A sneaky mash-up of New Order's 'Confusion' and Vilallobos' 'Frank Mueller Melodram' appeared recently as a white label. Nobody actually knows if Villalobos is behind it or if somebody else pieced it together, either way its an excellent track.
'Dubfire - Ribcage'
One half of the legendary duo Deep Dish (and judging by their solo work, the better half) is the artist behind Locodice and Martin Buttrich's first release on their new label 'Desolat'. Ribcage has been tearing up dancefloors in Ibiza all summer with its earth shattering bassline and rediculous white noise build. Don't miss this one.
