Sergie Rezza – SRR002 – Sergie Rezza Records

The power of music never ceases to amaze or transform the simple everyday into something else entirely more inspiring. And that’s the feeling captured from the first number of this five track release from DJ Deep and Roman Poncet. Envole, opens its arms to you care off a succession of finely tuned percussive rhythms, and late-night Jazzy warmth which soon has you wanting more. The haunting, exciting ambience of Eclipse follows suit, as the exotic essence of the drum driven Le Reveil happens next. The more playful Jazz of Max and then the awe-inspiring atmosphere’s of Procession end this first rate release of sound, movement and conversation.

Release: May 1


Spencer Parker – Different Shapes And Sizes Remix EP01 – Work Them Records

The energy levels remain heightened as this latest release from Spencer Parker sees last year’s robust productions get remixed for 2018. Shape Fascination, is recrafted care of DJ Deep who places the emphasis on grittier drums plus the eventual glow of contrasting electric keys lending its texture a refreshed angle. An excellent Dub of the same follows taking it deeper accentuating echoes and adding more playful instrumentation. The Setaoc Mass Remix then proceeds to hit hard and heavy employing the title Techno in bold stark letters. Which almost surprisingly has Akirahawks rework Riff Shapes in Hi-Energy fashion with hip-shaking syncopated bass and electro Toms punctuating the arrangement, along-side a sometimes awkward fusion of sparkling eighties styled piano.

Release: January 26

DJ Deep – For The Love Of Kaoz EP – Kaoz Theory

An excellent release of sound, and more importantly rhythm, on the opening track from DJ Deep’s new EP for Kerri Chandler’s Kaoz Theory. In many ways an effortlessly stunning piece of work that cumulates with a sense of bravado, taking you in one direction, while releasing you in another. Thai, begins and ends in anticipation which doesn’t actually hit pay-off but remains all the more powerful (and exciting) for that – if it followed predictable formula some massive beat would kick in and so on, but then this is about calibre rather than clique. The quality reaches another plateau via the super-charged emotions of the picturesque Tuesday Record Shopping In Paris which paints strident drums alongside a rush of energy to great effect in another well-crafted slice of music. Next, Guardian returns to a more familiar set of beats and bass, leaving the pounding, self-explanatory Cavalier Drums to pulverise all sense of reason into submission.

Release: August 28
