Chirpy disco/deep house three-tracker from new label signing, Pleasure Planet. Title track features a vocal delievery from the one-and-only Kim Ann Foxman.
If there’s one part of the universe that understands drum & bass like its British creators and guardians, it’s Russia. From St Petersburg comes a new label. Their first release certainly sets an unorthodox, exceptionally high precedent. Tumbling breaks pay homage to the Amen-dominated days, while a poltergeist-frosted vocal soars angelically over the rough and rugged backdrop. This stunning track is a soul searcher and will cause as much devastation to the dancefloor as it will enlightenment through your headphones.
The ever-consistent beat cornucopia that is Dublin-based All City, occasional home to Daedelus, Machinedrum, Onra and XXXY, drop their first release for 2014 with a new non de plume for Canada’s The Cyclist.

Into the New Year and the exponential resurgence of Psy/Goa in 2013 shows no signs of abating. 'Salvia' from UAE-based producer Milad Maleki is but one of dozens of this month's crop that draws inspiration from the East.
