Circoloco resident DJ W!LD is not just a wicked DJ.
His drawn-out, languid style of production, while track-y, has garnered some of the most mind-mangling moments in tech house in recent years, for labels like 2020 Vision, Crosstown Rebels and Resonance Records.
Following a two-year break from album production, we finally have his third LP, 'When You Feel Me', a 27-track (!) release out on 20th October.
Packed with instant W!LD classics, there's vintage funk, disco and soul samples (trainspotters beware) laid over a chugging 4/4, often with the filtered French touch we've come to expect from his W/Catwash labels, plus the odd moment of panel-beating techno.
Scoring 8/10 in the current issue of DJ Mag (buy it here), we said: 'Make no mistake, 'When You Feel Me' is his masterpiece. Every beat, sample and drop is immaculate, delivered with such swagger — such precisely levelled magic — he's a master of his craft'.
