Our in-house selector Andrew Wowk pics 10 essential tracks for your crate
Manakinz – Snakehips [Mitchell Street Records]
The Glaswegian duo channel New York on this infectious, tribal-flavoured house cut that blends chunky drums with a heady siren lead and chopped-up vocal stabs.
Roger Gerressen – Cerendipity [Yoyaku Records]
Sparkling melodies and dusty chords come together on this delightful, airy slice of deep house.
Adonis Rivera – XX Acid [Crosstown Rebels]
Driving, peak-time acid that harks back to the golden era of early 2000s progressive without overdoing the nostalgia.
Blixaboy – Molo [Audiophile Deep]
The Dallas native offers up some lush, soulful electro that stands out amongst the stark, mechanical sound dominating the genre at the moment.
Chrissy – In Paradise (Loods Remix) [17 Steps]
An absolutely huge, uplifting rave-inspired house jam that would easily have sent a Mancunian warehouse crowd nuts back in the 90s (and will do plenty of damage on contemporary dancefloors, too).
Dstm – Selfish Attitude [Entail Records]
Hard techno doesn’t have to be serious all the time – this absolute belter has a fun, playful attitude that nicely complements its thunderous, driving groove.
Bomat – Classy Talk [Nurvous Records]
Pure, unadulterated house music. Nothing more needs to be said.
Rob Clouth – The Vacuum State [Mesh]
Taken from Clouth’s forthcoming album Zero Point, The Vacuum State is a chaotic-but-beautiful exploration of chance and coincidence in musical form. A fitting tribute the zero-point energy in quantum mechanics it takes inspiration from.
Om Unit – Peninsula [Submerged]
Om Unit once again defies convention and categorisation with this up-tempo, dub-inspired, and super deep jungle cut.
Glaskin – Ratunek [Yael Trip]
Slamming, gritty electro from the rapidly rising Munich duo. The bassline on this is absolutely filthy, and the twisted vocals add a layer of weird playfulness to the mix.
