Figure of Speech EP - Detroit Swindle - Freerange Records

Detroit Swindle's rise to power has been impressively meteoric, and their flourishing Heist imprint is fast becoming a go-to label. Having got in on the ground floor, this three-tracker for Jimpster and Tom Roberts' Freerange is arguably the best material yet from Maarten Smeets and Lars Dales. 'Figure of Speech' has shuffling syncopation up the yin-yang, coupled with snipped Afro vocals. 'Victoria's Secret', meanwhile, throws in wayward, brassy synths like a boss. But it's 'Live at the Cosmic Carnival' that's going to do the damage. It rolls. And rolls. And rolls.

From the Basement to the Roof - Club Cheval - Parlophone

Destined for undoubted — and thoroughly deserved — greatness, this is a floor-slaying jam from French foursome Club Cheval (aka CanBlaster, Myd, Panteros666 and Sam Tiba). Featuring vocals from Los Angeles singer Phlo Finster — an alumnus of South Central's Crenshaw High, where the likes of Ice-T and several of Odd Future were schooled — hers is a silken, singular performance. But somehow, the absolute best thing about 'From the Basement to the Roof' is the fact that it never totally lets loose, never resorts to the lowest common denominator. Oh, and the piano at the end. Which is ace.

Stay Home - Submerse - Project Mooncircle

Hot House EP - The Cyclist - Music is for Losers

Andrew Morrison diverts from his tape-saturated techno on 'Heart of Stone' and 'Hot House'. Both are tough, functional techno tracks, but neither can compare to the evocative vocals and beautiful, slightly detuned melodic sweeps of 'Aurora (Shortwave Mix)'.
