More output from Scottish producer Colin Bailey on Hot Chiip's Greco-Roman imprint, this four-track EP opens up with the raved-up piano stabs and overdriven beats of 'Breathe' and an accompanying Curses! Run Ur Pockets remix that throws some lairy sub-bass about the place in a Count & Sinden sort of fashion. Also noteworthy is the closing piece: arms-in-the-air epic, 'Midnight Stalker'.

Deep-end dubstep heads, your time! Clubroot follows up his revelatory debut with a second set of deluxe post-rave for the emotionally scarred stepper. Unlike most producers of his ilk, Clubroot's music is almost defined by the fact that he simply doesn't play livesets. Perhaps it's a homage to that other show-shy figure, Burial, but it's probably more the fact that he'd have everyone in a blubbering puddle in the middle of the floor, meaning these tracks are ideally suited to smoke & whiskey aided armchair sessions. These eleven tracks adhere to the formula of his former set, using spare, dread-r… Read more

Anthem time!!! Funkineven just set our stylus on fire with two boogie power moves for Eglo! Thus far, we've only caught a couple of dazzling glimpses of this fella, namely on the 'Kleer' 12" and a bumpin' couple of beats for Fatima, but this 12" is sure to set him out as the UKs finest answer to Dâm-Funk. With 'She's Acid' he imagines a timewarp where the early 80s boogie funk scene plugs directly into '87 acid. Maximized machine beats are subtly but painstakingly inched together for serious dancefloor impact while a FAT acid line fills in the gaps with pure luminous funk. This is… Read more

"AGCG has spent the last couple of years flitting through shadows, turning up on labels like Perlon, Beatstreet and Sender like a peripatetic prophet of the Berlin underground, seeding the scene with cryptic singles that return to the past to suggest alternate futures. Now he returns to Berlin's Laboratory Instinct label with the follow-up to 2006's Proto Acid: The Berlin Sessions. You could call Tronic Jazz' sound classic: its Spartan drum machines, analog synthesizers and carefully sculpted funk are all modelled after a blueprint laid down decades ago in Ch… Read more

Unlike his previous 'Think Ur Greezy', he reverts to the style that made his name in the first place, from the aggy juggernaut of his and Laze's 'How U Like Dat', to the classic ghost-isms of 'This Thrill' and the fluid flex of his and Rolla's 'Dirty Dirty' shooting for the most mash-up ends of the night.

All the hype around Ninja Tune's new darling, Emika, is clearly justified with this dark treat featuring a crushing remix from Pinch. 'Double Edge' is probably the most forward thinking pop track we've heard all year, that is if you like your pop dark like a Berlin backstreet at 4am in the middle of December. Quite remarkably, the track is also credited with additional production from Rashad Becker, aka one of the most revered mastering and cutting engineers in the world. She's only the second person after Tin Man to be honoured with such an accomplished presence as far as we know. No… Read more

VARIOUS / STRUT - Next Stop ... Soweto Vol. 2: Soultown. R&B, Funk & Psych Sounds from the Townships 1969-1976, Strut
With such a deep well of musical heritage at their disposal, Strut Records compile a second compendium of 'Soultown, R&B, Funk and Psyche sounds from the Townships 1969-1976'. While the first album looked at the local fusions of indigenous jazz and jive, this set covers a more explicit frame of reference from US and UK soul and funk music from a turbulent time in South African history. To a backdrop of rising black consciousness these 22 young bands made some incredible music. The stomping 'Khubani' by J.K. Mayengani… Read more

Pine is the debut release from the soundscaping duo of Alex Smalley and Svitlana Samoylenko, who compose and record together as Olan Mill. Using the manipulated sounds of violin, piano, pipe organ an guitar these two musicians introduce themselves with 'Spare Smoke Template', which at first brings to mind the slowcore elegance you'd associate with Stars Of The Lid - diverting a pseudo-classical palette of instruments towards a droning, harmonious soundscape. 'Country' immediately capitalises on this form with an even more discerning take on the same sound, swelling in symphonic ambient waves ove… Read more

**Reissue of Dr Who Dat's 'Beyond 2morrow' under his Jneiro Jarel moniker** Philadelphia's Jneiro Jarel really is a legend among beatmakers, having already shifted templates under his Dr. Who Dat? moniker and as part of the hugely innovative Shape of Broad Minds, as well as a whole ruck of productions under his own name over the last decade. This full-length (originally released under the Dr. Who Dat moniker last year) once again illustrates how Jarel's production is just off the scale and somehow more convincing than many of the newer producers emerging out of either L.A.'s burgeoni… Read more

In a music industry that's becoming increasingly fixated on overnight, flavour-of-the-month success stories and general disposability, it can only be regarded as a great positive that The National are a band whose appeal continues to grow after some ten years of recording together. Despite not being the fresh-faced pups normally required to cause such a stir, High Violet is one of 2010's most talked about and anticipated albums, following on from the massively acclaimed Alligator (2005) and Boxer (2007). The lead-up single 'Bloodbuzz Ohio' previewed the impressive sense of scale this b… Read more

Very smart garage augmentations from the restless mind of T-Polar. His previous catalogue spills over micro-house, techno and electronica, but for L2S he goes strickly garage with two tracks of classically informed but future looking steppers. 'Theme From Roxy' shapes itchy, metallic-edged 2-step rhythms and broad atmospheric sweeps while 'Jupiter' rolls on some tighty wound and subs-driven garage-soul business. Tidy!

France's Ytac gets weird with two tracks of left-sided funky and garage breaks for Bomb Shop. there's no easy category for 'Switchsm' which takes in uptempo Soca-Funky programming, tense disco strings and stormy widescreen FX, while 'Barbusse 5k' swigns with brukken swingers patterns and nautical synth stabs with an odd IDM flavour. Very good indeed.
