Ethan Force – Feel In Love – Too Many Rules

Ethan Force’s opening shot, Feel In love positively ripples with a rush of emotion as warm pads unfold over brutally, robust and yet defiantly funky drums. A standout production that contrasts moods and styles as Acid lines clash with more soulful vocals. But it’s that difference which also defines it, marking out its own space. The Party, follows with looped beats underpinning a stabbed frenzy of energies, while next The People returns to 303 sequences on another devastating cut which again contrasts notably via its use of voice. The Girl, finishes off with grainy drum machines offset by a crunchy set of synthesized pulses that certainly set the feelings racing, as indeed do all the tracks.

Release: March 8


Javi Bora – RAW – Too Many Rules

So ok, a brand new label launched onto the world by Javi Bora. And it’s called Too Many Rules, which in my book sounds about the perfect estimation. The music, as the title indicates, provides sizzling, edgy House Music. The kind you want served up just at the right moment. The kind to get lost in. The excellent, Chicago begins by sequencing a Disco past, yet mangles it all up in the blend, with forceful drums plus chugging basslines informing a positive future. Huxley is on hand to reconstruct the intention, dropping much of the disco while adding a bit more tech, bar the drop which stabs right where it hurts. The title track, RAW then rolls out hot basslines alongside frisky, nervy drums which enviably climax out of all proportion. This time it’s Davina Moss who delivers a techier take and once again delivers a fevered set of rhythms to ignite the dancefloor.
