Andre Bratten - Trommer Og Bass

It sounds like a track I should have known a long time ago, instead I had to read about it in a Mixmag album review, of all places.  All about the bassline - something Tale Of Us would play.  Dark and bassy.

Honeydrop - Inflatable Armchair

This track oozes class.  The title of the track is very representative of the feeling, I am just imagining laying on an inflatable armchair after a long night out.  Musically - think deep and dubby.

Affie Yusuf - Rinse & Dry

A simple, fairly slow beat, but with a very catchy hum-along melody, and plinks of a xylophone.  Effective.

Enzo Siragusa - Desire

A really under-rated track from the east London maestro - went down an absolute storm when I played it recently.

Lil' Louis - Clap Your Hands (DJ Q Re-Groove)

This is a minor re-edit of an absolute stone-wall house classic from the 90's, which makes you feel good and with a slight tribal sound will make you want to dance.

Robert James - Soul One

I've listened to quite a bit of turd today, so this made a refreshing change when the warm, subtle tones inserting themselves into my ears.  It's a nice warm-up track, a casual piece of deep house, with occasional vocal inflexions.

Luc Ringeisen - Glance At The Other Side Of The Rejected Mirror

Slightly glitchy minimal track with various odd drums over it, and a variety of nonsense.

Dopplereffekt - Plastiphilia 2

This reminds me of all the extravagances of the electro-clash era, a short electro track about wanting to fuck a mannequin.

Takashi Himeoka - Ludwig

I've been after this for some time, since I was back at a friend's flat and managed to persuade them to swap X Factor for minimal techno seeing as it was 5am and we were out of it.  It is just a hypnotic groove with this enchanting English fellow occasionally saying "Yes that's right, exactly".

Levon Vincent - Fear

This is a typically classy track - kind of hard to pigeon-hole, somewhere between dub techno and tech-house.  It reminds me of a whirling painting of an industrial landscape.

Riccardo - Lapiuta

Such an infectious track, simple rising repeated cleeps - absolutely rammed-packed full of charm.  Julietta recently finished a mix with it, and it was played at Fuse on NYD.  Minimally massive.

Seuil - Al Capote

Gangster minimal.  Live by the gun, die by the gun.  Or live by the ket, die by the ket.  It has a groovy beat to it too.
