Tom Middleton - Penrose Steps

This is a brilliant track from a brilliant musician - it is quite simple but yet very clever in the way it keeps building and building gradually.

Ricardo Villalobos – Tu Actitud

Lots of weirdness going on but it all fits together and makes sense somehow in a very Ricardo kind of way, a very charming but odd piece of minimal that I would so love to play one day.

A total delight.

Matthew Dekay & Lee Burridge – Lost In A Moment

Since when did trance get good again?  Really melodic, deep stuff about coming out of the womb the wrong way around, this is as delicious as home-made apple crumble.

It will not be long before everyone catches onto trance again.

Bicep & Ejeca – You

Uplifting and modern sounding garage by two of the soon-to-be superstars of the garage-house crossover in the UK.  Probably called future garage or goose house or similar.

Darius Syrossian – My Side Project

Funky sounding house is making some kind of comeback at the moment, and this is a superb mid-2000’s sounding track but nothing cheesy, just good quality funky house.  Who would have thought it?  See that?  It’s a f’ing tuba.

Insert comment about lady in video being an appealing side project too.

Miss Kittin - Girlz (TINI Remix)

This could not be more descriptive of where I am musically right now.  Very stripped back minimal house groove, tINI is absolutely on fire right now both as a DJ (voted 15th in the 2012 RA poll) and as a producer.

All part of the new wave of minimal, with a rather Ricardo-esque kind of breakdown.  Love it so much.

Click Box - Body Fall

Simple build-up techno but devastating.  The techno viking would love this.

Lee Curtiss - Freaks

Oh yeah, I knew the second I clicked play I would love this, tracks about freaks are always better than monsters on crack and this really does not let anyone down with its driving bassline and intent of crazy, deep, underground house with a purpose.

And let's face it - you are a freak like me, aren't you?

Ricardo Villalobos – I’m Counting

I was doing something incredibly dull and repetitive at work and this took me into another world of squelchyness like a thin layer of custard emitting sweet smells and sounds.

Deichkind - Leider Geil (Solomun Remix)

German Nintendo music.  Yes.  Only a small clip available on Soundcloud.  I haven't the foggiest where I discover some of these tracks sometimes.

Tom Trago - Use Me Again (Carl Craig Remix)

I cannot say I was expecting this when I clicked play, especially after the classic techno masterpiece from Carl Craig on Saturday just gone by - but a proper full-on funky house disco kind of thing.  Girl music.

I:Cube - Transpiration

Ravey Sven track.  Ha ha.

Rhadoo - Geemac

This is like what Gordon Brown left the United Kingdom with - minimal gold.  Tish tish click warble.

Ricardo Villalobos - Put Your Lips

Unique squidgy minimal from the human delight that is Villalobos.  Fingers crossed Santa brings me his new album of which this is from.

Anthea - Distraction (Subb-an 5am Remix)

Love this, random noises, vocal snippets, chugging underground beats and such a groove.  Hot, totally unlike the English summer.
