Kano: I'm Ready (Emergency Records) Dharma: Plastic Doll (System Music) Gaucho: Dance Forever (System Music) Pink Project: Disco Project (Zanza Records) Ask even a knowledgeable fan of that confusing but utterly exhilarating era of early '80s dance music about one Mr. Stefano...

Damian Lazarus: Fabric 54

Abacus Presents iDrum: iDrum This Djembe (This Is Not a Bongo)

Chocolate Puma ft. Shermanology: “Only Love Can Save Me”

This is a simple yet effective track from the Amsterdam duo that will be eternally known for their anthem "Give It Up" under their The Fog moniker. Minimum drum structuring along with a 4...

Roborg: Fsociety

Roborg's Fsociety is full of spacial grandeur and dystopian dirges.

Demarkus Lewis: Tribal Sun EP

Z Records’ Attack the Dancefloor Vol 6

In so many words and in so many ways, House Music has been about fucking over the vocalist. It's tradition. It's old school to fuck over the vocalist. It's the Italian production team behind...

Barbara Tucker & Tuccillo: “One Desire”

As people said about French actress Sarah Bernhardt, Barbara Tucker could probably sing the names out of a phonebook and make it an anthem. Instead, Alix Alvarez in his choice remix of Tucker +...
