Crate digging with Andrew Wowk – March

In a monthly series, our in-house selector Andrew Wowk lists his top 10 essential picks for the month.

#1. Arkityp – Maximum Boost [Arkityp]
Deep, minimal house from Archie Hamilton and Rossko that still manages to have some balls despite being deep and heady.

#2. Vincenzo Pizzi – 4ME [Pyteca]
Old school rave breaks revival absurdity complete with amens, growling bass, and uplifting synths.

#3. Nachtbraker – Small Towel People [Quartet Series]
An up-tempo, chunky disco-house banger that blends an uplifting bassline, warbling arps, and classic hip-hop samples to great effect.

#4. Shlømo – Vanished Breath (Oscar Mulero Remix) [Wolfskuil Records]
Normally known for his hard, dark sound, Spaniard Oscar Mulero switches gears and offers up a hypnotic, meditative journey through subtle atmospherics and spaced-out beats.

#5. Amy Kisnorbo – Pleasure State
A haunting amalgamation of trip-hop, post-dubstep and electronica with an incredible vocal.

#6. SCB – Precision Incision [Hotflush Recordings]
Scuba revives his SCB alias to deliver a dark, driving techno cut with hints of acid and tribal.

#7. Cavern of Anti-Matter – Malfunction [Duophonic UHF Discs]
Wobbly, funky post-punk-meets-electro.

#8. Rich NXT – Serious [FUSE London]
Bumpy, jackin’ house with a super funky bassline and earworm vocal.

#9. Norwood – Give Me Time [Apollo Recordings]
Don’t let the relatively low BPM fool you – this uplifting, melodic gem is serious hands-in-the-air material.

#10. Farron – Paneth (Nothus Remix) [XCPT Music]
Part techno, part breakbeat, part electro, all lush and beautiful.
