Our in-house selctor Andrew Wwok digs deep to find 10 essentials you might have missed in June
- Ben Sims – Discoma [Planet X]
Part of an enormous compilation raising money for people fighting corruption in Colombia, Ben Sims does what he does best on his contribution: Tough, percussive grooves, chunky basslines, and oodles of funk.
- Joeski – Faded [Crosstown Rebels]
The New York house legend transplants dub reggae aesthetics and production techniques into his trademark groovy, deep house sound with outstanding results.
- Itay Dailes – Are We There Yet? [Science Cult]
Lush, melodic electro that blends snappy beats with otherworldly synths and a squelchy acid lead.
- Will Hofbauer & Sangre Voss – Pumice [Control Freak Recordings]
Subtle, meditative breakbeat with a tribal edge.
- 313 Acid Queen & SickBoy – GUARDIAN [Detroit Underground]
An up-tempo, party-starting breakbeat jam centred around a gritty, always-evolving bassline and hypnotic drum patterns.
- M.R.E.U.X. – Flash
Stripped-down, spaced-out techno that adds a dash of funk with its catchy analogue bassline.
- Joe Cleen – Every Little Thing [SlothBoogie]
Straight-up disco edit heat that speaks for itself. An essential summer banger.
- AMA//MIZU – One By One [SaS Recordings]
A deep, reflective electronica/house crossover with soft, echoing vocals, dusty drums, and grainy synths.
- Floyd Lavine – Mr. Bones [Afrikan Tales]
A key figure in the Afro music scene in Europe, the RISE collective creator infuses modern electronic music with the traditional elements of rhythm and storytelling from African music.
- Unknown Face – Computers In Control [DSCI4]
Unknown Face delivers one for the heads-down crew that injects modern production and sound design into a late 90s tech-step framework.
