Delft 08 - Various - Delft

Talk about a transformation; in its original format, LA-4A’s 'Invader' is a decent slice of grungy techno with some eerie Konders keys, but it reaches a new level when Alden Tyrell remixes it. Hardcore samples screech in over militaristic claps, a grainy bass stomps like a skinhead losing it after too much Scrumpy and the end result positively exudes menace. Man of the moment Matrixxman is tasked with remixing  another LA-4A track, 'America Kid', but even his hypnotic, acid-soaked version can’t compare to Tyrell’s apocalyptic meltdown.

 
Recognise - Ralph Myerz pres R.E.C. - Paper Recordings

Paper presents this slinky, house-facing project from Scandi-disco don Ralph Myerz. Seek out 'Don't Leave Me Now', featuring Leona Freiburg on the vocal duties.

Sweet Bitter Love EP - Keita Sano - Spring Theory

Inspiringly original stuff from Japanese producer Keita Sano, out of the San Francisco-Parisian axis that is Spring Theory. 'Once I Found A Diamond' is superbly wonky, a dirty synth bassline holding things down lest the wayward synths threaten to go feral. The ever-reliable Jacques Renault turns in an understated peak-time version. 'Sweet Bitter Love' is fucking brilliant, and that's perhaps the only way to properly describe it. It's an insane blend of disco and Latin calypso. 'Bouzouk' is house from the Orient. Oh, well done.

Obscurant - Gonno - International Feel

Head for the title track here, arpeggiating rhythms in the key of mellow. And for an even easier ride check the dubbed-out mix from Call Super.
