dj koze might be one of the worlds best producers. but above all hes a dj. and it’s his dj ear that governs. just as in a great set. so with his releases: seeing aliens came out of nowhere. a big buzzing beast of a track. to announce that koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album. knock knock. but now that koze has your attention. it’s time to remind everyone what’s most important about club music. pull things back. take a turn to the left. and get deep into the groove. thus pick up: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove. doubly so in the extended 12inch version. in a sense its incredibly familiar it is essentially a filter disco record. very close to something you could imagine coming out of paris around the turn of the millennium. but of course. this is koze. nothing is normal or familiar in his world. and hes taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory

fouk might have been curating outplay since 2013. but their butterfunk ep is in fact the duos first proper ep on their own imprint. its not that theyve been resting on their laurels: they ve drip-fed a handful of eps on the likes of heist and house of disco over the past few years. and released solo efforts on kolour ltd and razor n tape that stormed the charts. it s been fascinating to see the dutch pair slowly break the mould. moving from heavy sampling in favour to an emphasis on original instrumentation and production. the butterfunk ep is fine showcase of their prowess in the studio. loaded to the hilt with contemporary dancefloor funk. things kick off with the rolling drums. off-beat percussion and seriously infectious hammond lines of organ freeman. title track butterfunk is aimed squarely at the hips with its smooth keys and perfectly placed vocal. while some acid lines give the track a little edge. flip over for the bumping wong way. a chunky workout with a rubber bassline. the finale of the ep is winter. a fantastic slice of 80s inspired downtempo mushroom jazz.

“yuxtaposición” is a recently unearthed treasure recorded by a tight italian trio in miami during the early seventies. until now. this music has only been heard in office backgrounds. tv commercials and movie soundtracks. but the perseverance of an admirer brought about its first-ever release on the italian schema label. imagine hearing a 1972-era cal tjader quartet without cal tjader and you get an idea of what to expect. it’s slightly latin. lightly funky and truly enjoyable. “yuxtaposición” offers enough to interest a jazz listener. but the sounds heard in these 35 minutes are really better appreciated as mood music. lead man. cabildo. composer of all ten tunes here. has a knack for writing jazzy little hooks that launch his tasty. well-crafted keyboard solos. often alternating fender rhodes and piano within the same song. his playing maintains a hypnotic command that recalls bob james’ cti style. electric bassist bobby fares and percussionist max ronnie make subtle. supportive contributions that serve only to enhance cabildo’s sound. there’s a funny thing about yuxtaposición too. it’s kind of like developing an addiction. you may not pay much attention to it at first. but before you know it. you’re hooked. you need to hear it to be satisfied. a very nice surprise.

lp theres been an air of hypnagogic mystery surrounding acid tests sublabel avenue 66 from the start. joey andersons oblique. prince-inspired incantation above the cherry moon set the tone for a label thats sound that has found beauty in the furthest recesses of the dance floor. in the murkiest decay of kick drums and rave stabs. fitting then. that the first album on the imprint comes from trux. an artist who has chosen to reveal nearly nothing about themselves. following a cult classic mini-lp for office recordings. orbiter bears out the anonymous producer as a master of liminal. conceptual dance music. orbiters ten tracks have a vaporous. shape-shifting quality. threatening to topple over into full-on kick drum bliss or vanish into ambience. opener. with it. moves from heady ambient rush to skeletal piano. while blinko and roys garage spell out a hazy memoriam for the uk continuum. forlorn pianos ring out amongst the field recordings. excitable toms and jungle bass all softened in the enveloping gauze. orbiter positions trux as an unknown auteur who puts evocative world of tone and echo into dizzying motion. content to watch from the wings. track list with it orbiter blinko roys garage third glow in my world my row odd u agoma

shimza. real name ashley raphala. is one of south africas brightest young talents. ascendent. his 4 tracks debut e.p. on cadenza reveals solid production skills and an innate instinct for peak-time bangers. the opening track. congo congo is a dark ride over abysmal tom-tom drums. lively percussions and a gloomy bass lead. ignited dramatically by an ensemble of wide synthetic stabs and chords. in its dub- mix. the drums and the percussion become lighter without diminishing its dynamic tension. the overall weight of the leads and the stabs is reduced. leaving more space to its intense piano and string chords and swinging sub bass. shimza - secret melodies starts with an obscure bass line. but the intense twist of fractioned rolls and arpeggios bring an ascending piano progression that quickly blooms into an uplifting symphony. selector is a deeper cut that keeps the gaze on the dancefloor: the incessant hand clapping and a cloud of low frequencies bumps unexpectedly drag its hypnotic harmonies into a breath-taking drop.
