Marble Isles - Strict Face - Tuff Wax

Australian producer Strict Face follows up his glossy, globule-like release for Gobstopper with the five-track 'Marble Isles' on the Tuff Wax label and, in many ways, it continues where he left off. Pushing that familiar vein of instrumental margins music, Strict Face circles round a grime template to varying effect, with beatless pieces and a trio of hard-hitters. ‘In Evergreen’ is the clattering peach amongst it all.

Turbulence - Luca Brazi - Broke Records

Every single thing I've heard from Luca's new 'Dyin' Proof' set makes me more intrigued to hear it. Measured, intense flows, gorgeous production. Keep an eye peeled. 

Slowmotion III (Orkidea Remix) - Solarstone & Orkidea - Black Hole Recordings

There’s not a ghost of a chance that Orkidea’s remix of his and Solarstone’s third ‘Slowmotion’ action will become the most club-spun version. The Solarstone remix’s more floor-bound direction and Orkidea’s 13+ minutes runtime put paid to that. It does, though, leave acres of room for some stylistic indulgence and through long, gripping often semi-cinematic and near sci-fi-esque sequences, it’s nothing if not engaging. 

Duster EP - Midland - Aus Music

Though not the first time Harry Agius has turned out for Will Saul's Aus Music, this is patently the finest. Loose of beats, as ever, Agius throws down all he's got for 'Duster', the title track lush with a heart-rending string section melding with the machine noises. Over, 'Reflex' appears just to be noise, all scattered percussion, but when the four drops, it ties together like Jeff Lebowski's rug, like some digital Afrobeat. 'Pitch Drift', meanwhile, with its pulsing synths and woozy fire-alarm pads, has a true depth of funk. This is a piece of work indeed.
