DISCLOSURE: CALL OF THE WILD

Disclosure’s Wild Life Detroit festival bridges generations of dance music...
Arrival - Jaytech - Positronic

It’s a funny thing that as soon as Jaytech struck out from his long-term home at Anjunabeats to start his Positronic label, he began producing records that were perfectly suited for a storming trance set. Loaded with an irreverent sense of humour, ‘Arrival’ is also positively packed with grunt, and a rumbly bottom end that’s heavy enough to shake up a stadium, with a dash of melody lightening things a little in the breakdown. ‘Arrival’ is the perfect electro/progressive oxymoron; representing the sound of trance in 2014, without being particularly trancey.

Backbone/Dissolving - Clameres - Colorize

Two equally fine offerings from the Colorize stable, that deals in electro/progressive on the deeper, darker tip. ‘Dissolving’ on the B-side is the more bassline driven of the two records, while ‘Backbone’ adds a funkier edge to the liquid trance sounds of Clameres.

HES027 - Bruce - Hessle Audio

Lately, there’s been a real sense of frugality from Hessle Audio in terms of their recorded output, but the lads have returned with a three-track 12” from newcomer, Bruce. A bit of an abstraction, Bruce’s music is definitely weird enough to hold the attention away from the dancefloor, though ‘Not Stochastic’ does lurch straight for it. It’d have to be an open-minded dance, mind, with all comers set to sway to creeping loopy techno. 

Se7en EP - Blackhall & Bookless - Jaunt Records

The residents at the Jaunt parties deliver a decent, disco-fuelled deep house cut with Kevins Spacey, but this release is all about the oceanic chords and tight drums on Fred Ps reshape of Morgans Freeman.
