Quennum return for the third release on the (rightly hyped) new imprint (and home of Luciano) Cadenza, this time with Lee Van Dowski in place of Luciano. The 12" is another hole in one for the Cadenza label, fresh, sharp and deep as hell house is the aim, and both tracks pull it off superbly. "Extension" is a stripped and minimal affair, but the intricate programming and expertly shaped sub bass takes it beyond 90% of the 12"s released each week, machine funk indeed. Backed up by the more melodic and techy "Oregon", with its chunky drums and metallic percussion that builds up… Read more

A few doors down from Hardwax lies Luciano's studio: here he has shaped with sometime Playhouse and Perlonite Thomas Melchior, who also learnt much we believe with Baby Ford. Real groove is back, Melchior demonstrating an easy touch with vocal elements and samples, Luciano's neo-afro-beat chilean-berliner style showing through on the seamless long Fela flows and impudent bass structures. "Father" opens all phasing and easy sub-disco tempo. The feeling is all boogie woodblocks and interactive circuitry - sounding for all the world like prime period Compass Point sou… Read more

Since this is on Captured Tracks and it has the word 'Beach' in the band name you can probably guess as to just how zeitgeisty and on-the-pulse this is (answer: very). Brooklyn's Dustin Payseur purveys a lo-fi, echo-dappled new wave sound with a killer sense of melody in-tow on 'Daydream', on which punchy drum machines prop up great, twanging riffs and waifish, detached vocals. B-side 'Desert Sand' has a bit of a Bradford Cox feel to it, which is always welcome, and represents a slightly more experimental, rickety blues sound.

Hanoi Janes plunders scuzzy garage, rock-a-billy and Afrobeat via five pop perfected songs. They're very much in the style of his 'Year Of Panic' LP and bound to receive just as much attention. Very good.

Second release from Minks for Captured Tracks. There are three tracks of 4AD inspired gaze-pop headed by the lovely 'Ophelia', which sounds like a less fuggy Ariel Pink, backed with the dreamy New Order-inspired sequence of 'Our Ritual' and the caustic swoon of MBV-alike instrumental 'Dead Believer Dog'. Sweet sleeve too.

Death-fixated C86 goth-poppers Veronica Falls make their debut with this fine 2-tracker, opening with the fey indie charms of 'Found Love In A Graveyard' on the A-side. Compared with some of the other bands on Captured Tracks, Veronica Falls sound dangerously like a proper pop group with proper songs, and it might well be worth keeping an eye - or for that matter, an ear - on their next move. B-side 'Starry Eyes' is a nice bonus, finding the quartet covering the Roky Erickson classic in fine doo-wop style.

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £5.99

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: HDB035

Hyperdub presents four tracks from the 'Contact, Love, Want, Have' album, reorganised and optimised for the floor. As with the album, all four cuts are strong on potent neon synthlines, touching on Drexciyan electro in the spiky 'They Are All Losing The War' or even Italo excesses with 'Look'. 'Psoriasis' is probably the most addictive and therefore highlight of the set, rompin' with a Funk-debted beat and wild computer game melodies while 'Video Delays' offers a deeper moment with more Detroit-sent synthlines and a rugged mongrel bass. Very smart!
