The Drumattics take the straight-up, noisy, wobbly breakbeat original and turn it into an electronic disco-funk piece that's got way more funk, thereby proving that you don't have to bang it and throw in the kitchen sink to rock the floor.
Vril can usually be found releasing for Giegling, but despite finding a new home on Delsin, it's business as usual. 'Vortekz' is powered by splintered beats and buzzing percussion, while more impressively, 'Y7-10' boasts the severe unpredictability of a Surgeon track.
The name Ivy Lab has become synonymous with sheer perfection, the tracks are as enchantingly beautiful and as scientifically precise as the outfits signature would suggest. This gloriously divine piece see the trio again collaborating with transcendental voice of Frank Carter III to heavenly effect. This stunning liquid roller will warmly wrap around and entangling itself into every element of your body and soul. The rest of the EP shows experiments with acid tech and crunk, and features a the mighty Emperor. You can't miss this one.
Thankfully, Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar (known collaboratively as JETS) manage to properly harness the strength of Jamie Lidell’s vocal line without ever eclipsing it on this vinyl-only drop. The original track - one that previously opened Machinedrum’s Essential Mix — ‘Midas Touch’ is fraught with a sense of space and driven by a simple boogie, but Machinedrum’s version is a little more crammed with shocks of colour, his wedges of synth sitting clipped between the vocal.
