Davis Jr sounds like the illegitimate child of Mr. De and Moodymann in Try Me (I'll Funk You)', reworked with acres of space and spiralling synthetic funk in the Mono/Poly remix.
The icy machine maiden reveals a 2nd cut from her 'Discreet Desires' album. 'Spur' nods to classic Murder Capital, Bunker, SCSI-AV styles.
Rrose serves the DJs and dancers what they want with another descent into deepest experimental techno zones. Following a fallow few years, this has been a productive annum for the masked producer from the American West Coast, pursuing the esoteric exercise of 'Having Never Written A Note For Percussion', and the danceflkoor drills of 'For Acquantice' with five tracks purified and uncannily hypnotic number scanning slow techno in 'Adrift' along with the screwball bleep techno of 'Purge' and bloody minded abstraction of 'Curl'.
The 1st of two best-of, multi-artist compilations from Jamal Moss's Mathematics label. Disc 1 takes in jazzy house from IFM, classic boogie wiggle by Bon Voyage, and electro from Echo 106. Disc 2 spans classy electro-house from Joe Drive, slick Chi-Troit gear from the 'pool by John Heckle, and Marcello Napoletano's slamming 'Space Voodoo'.

Chunky, mongrel club constructions from the house of Trax Couture. Scanning a scene of sublow B-More breaks (inc. bonus B-Beat Girl stabs) with 'Poisonous Eye', he ramps the megadome reverbs and industrial drums with force in 'Optical Fracture', and tests out a killer UK jackin' mutation in 'After Image', to check out with the c*nty flounce of 'Bounce Track'.

Dr. Zygote, Ayman, The Maghreban returns to Versatile with another imaginative, mutant house charge. 'Wonder Woman' heads up the session with dusty, crooked disco drums dubbed to the rafters and spun with wavey Eastern synths for your hypnosis. 'Frénétique' catches a more choppy electro edit flex strewn with madcap samples and bound for peak time mess-ups. 'Kung Fu' goes low on the disco bass, layered up with furtive Giallo tropes.
