Need a DJ intro? ‘Daphni – Poly’ Depending on the type of DJ you are will dictate as to whether an intro track is really relevant or not. In some instances it's nice to announce your arrival, other times the situation requires you to maintain what the proceeding DJ has built. Daphni - Poly is very much in that - 'hey take notice, I'm about start playing'. As I am sure you're all aware, Daphni is Caribou as much as Caribou is Dan Snaith. Some years back Mr Snaith announced his designs on club culture with his debut Daphni record 'Jialong'. A record that on reflection feels like a more complete album than this years follow ...

Minimal growler: Trikk – Bela via Dixon & Ame’s Innervisions Trikk - Bela is a weighty stripped back dance record that, despite its minimalism, carries plenty of force. The old adage 'less is more' is very much the case here. Trikk is back on Dixon and Ame's Innervisions with an 8 track double 12" 'Mundo Ritual EP', with Bela the standout moment for us. Like his 2016 Proto Rhyth (Black Version) Bela is one of those sneaky peak time dancefloor predators. Patiently stalking you with its covert minimalism before suddenly pouncing on you with growling intent. No carrion here, just a prime succulent cut. Rating Bela 3.8/5 Trikk - Bela Related ...

This is so often the case that most days we simply can't be bothered. Which is a shame as mixtapes were what got us into dance music in the first place. That said, like all the best new music discoveries, we occasionally stumble across something a bit special. Previous such discoveries include Bicep - Synthol Hit, Joris Voorn - Balance 014, Todd Terje - Essential Mix, DJ ... Read more / Preview track
