Rekall feat BBK - Toronto Is Broken - Sub Slayers

Youthful London-based producer Toronto is Broken shows off his more outlandish side with this tempo-shifting glitch-hop effort, featuring a tidy vocal about cerebral disorientation from Denver MC BBK. Industrial-strength bass drops segue into brooding synths and tight 100bpm drum work for a strangely addictive drill-bass weird-out.  Harrogate duo 601 plump for a "jungle bass" reworking that blends nailgun beats with epic synths and irritating chimp-shriek wobble-bass. I'm not really feeling the remix, but I am planning to set it as my alarm for that impossible-to-beat "shit the bed it's morning" wake-up experience.

Bass Face - Acti x Audiofreq - CDR

An exciting collaboration here between the pioneer of the ‘Subground’ or ‘qult’ sound Acti, teaming up with one of the hottest and most versatile hardstyle producers Audiofreq. The result is an 130bpm banger, with a super-catchy female rap and euphoric melody that builds to a brutal synth-kick drop. The mid point of the track builds to a climactic 100bpm trap/electro breakdown, for all the sexy ladies to get their twerk on! Very cool, unique track that will remain a staple in my sets for the foreseeable future.

Remember - Something Good & CAPS - Macarize

The studio collaborators summon summery bliss in this record for Macarize. A nice heavy house groove pins things down nicely, so the producers can indulge in some real larger-than-life melodic elements, in the form of scattered electro bleeps that build into a fully-fledged trance harmony, before the breakdown ushers in a vocal that signals even more good times. ‘Remember’ is the electro-progressive equivalent of a cheesy grin on your face.

Sonus - Stoneface & Terminal - Euphonic

Stoneface & Terminal are forever resourceful in finding exciting new variations on driving club trance, and here strip back the fuss for a steely example of pumping electro-trance. Smartly they’ve kept the focus on the pummelling power of the electro bassline, while still doling out the necessary doses of ‘epic’ in the breakdown. It’ll bestow a tougher edge to your 3am euphoria.
