Empathy - June Miller - Ram

Few artists have such an explosive effect on the scene so quickly, but since signing to the mighty Ram little over a year ago, Anglo/Dutch outfit June Miller have gained complete recognition, bringing us to the second offering from the label in this month's reviews. This stunning vocal track has thundered in the sets of boss Andy C since the summer, and is finally out for release. Big bass, monstrous drops and perfect production. 

Midas Touch - JETS feat Jamie Lidell - Leisure System

Thankfully, Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar (known collaboratively as JETS) manage to properly harness the strength of Jamie Lidell’s vocal line without ever eclipsing it on this vinyl-only drop. The original track - one that previously opened Machinedrum’s Essential Mix — ‘Midas Touch’ is fraught with a sense of space and driven by a simple boogie, but Machinedrum’s version is a little more crammed with shocks of colour, his wedges of synth sitting clipped between the vocal. 

Breaks My Heart Each Time - Leyland Kirby - Apollo

As a patchwork of internally comtempla- tive electronica, Leyland Kirby’s work excels with tracks called things like ‘Diminishing Emotion’ and ‘Breaks My Heart Each Time’, built expertly out of a delightfully corroded sound palette; but as a listen, it’s nothing if not fractured. 

True Science/Rights Of Passage - DJ Rasoul - Robsoul

If there’s a producer that deserves thorough revisitation, it’s Bay Area don Rasoul. For a decade, he did no wrong for the likes of Panhandle and Grayhound and thanks to Phil Weeks’ Robsoul imprint, we have two of his finest re-released. ‘True Science’ is incessant, a trippy masterpiece which drops deep jazz at the halfway point. ‘Rights Of Passage’, as SWAT with Kwai Le Chief and Nikola Baytala, is dark and delicious, tribal house of the highest order.
