next up on the influential artreform records label is the boss himself, aka kyiv-based dj and producer yevgeniy joss. often turning out tracks that sit high in the juno and decks charts, joss has a high-quality sound that ranges from slick tech to deep house and now he proves that once more.
up first is smooth, an infectious groove with lively synths scurrying about and bringing lots of dynamism to the drums. the percussion is crisp and the whole thing feels spaced out and futuristic. it’s busy and brimming with energy and will get any floor on its toes. sharp is a darker number with more menace in the drums. they are rubbery and supple and run through with edgy little synth lines. the track grows wilder as it unfolds and will really work dance floors into a lather.
once again the master joss shows just why he is such a tastemaker in the underground dance scene.
ukrainian label >crocus< presents a vinyl release of one of the most high-profile hits of the year. its author, ivan dorn, is the most outstanding artist of the local scene. with the release of his single >collaba<, dorn successfully launched his international career. >collaba< is the pilot single for the >otd< album recorded in los angeles. crocus release includes two previously unreleased remixes from experienced ukrainian sound producers: the founder of the vinyl label >artreform< - joss and his colleague kirill kirik, the owner of the crocus label. both remixes are dance versions of collaba, in tech-house and house style.

having bared his ego back in may 2015 and then more of his skills on a contribution to the robsoul edits collection earlier this year, long time label buddy joss moog returns with a fresh selection of beats on ’triple loop’. belying its name, we’re treated to four new sure shots from moog who, reknowned in the art of sculpting perfect party jams, has delivered once again. the stripped and simple vocal loop of the title track opens the ep, followed by the warm, buzzing bass and smooth jazzy keys of ‘etincelles’. on the flip the frenchman funks things up and breaks out the snares. disco stabs, vocal drops and rasping hats are all woven together to emphasise the classic groove. these are the breaks… amen. back on the 4x4 to close and josh lets the piano lead the dance on the smooth and soulful finalé of his latest robsoul treat.

robsoul release number 22 for joss moog and mister consistent just keeps rolling out the essential house flavours. ego is his latest collection of work and features four new originals from the frenchman, each with the sample rich touch that we have come to love. the diva licks of the title track and ep opener ego set the perfect funky vibe for the rest of the ep. raw wave sees us riding one, as the beach vibes flow, the keys stab and the chocolatey bassline melts. whos that ramps things up with its jackin action, skittish snare and cowbell, but counters with its smooth keys. a perfect combination. joss closes the party with an ode to a hero. nothing blurred here, just the utmost of respect.

art reform– being newly invented, this expression has already come in view of the people who arent indifferent to electronic music.
sure thing, as the labels releasing vinyl in ukraine can be easily counted on the fingers of one hand. most of them have already fallen into oblivion having yielded to economic realia, but for art reform records it is just the beginning.
the evidence to which is the release from the main project ideologist, kiev resident joss. well-known for his devotion to vinyl and club rhythms joss has fully embodied himself in his debut plate artreform.
you know a producer has got something when the first note of the first track you hear makes you sit up and take notice. so it is with 19-year-old east londoner joss ryan: the instant the jabbing orchestral motif at the beginning of >melancholy dreams< – the title track of his debut ep – kicks in, it hits your emotional centres hard and lodges in your memory. as statements of intent go, its a pretty tasty one, and tells you that this is a talent who can stand out and make an impact way beyond the ins and outs of the micro-genres and endlessly reconfiguring trends of underground music.to put it simply: joss is a grime kid who expanded his horizons. his popular mix of his own material for mary anne hobbss radio show last december already shows that the three tracks on this ep are by no means a fluke, and there is a whole lot more to come besides…
