Hold Me - Cooly G - Hyperdub

A dancefloor directed three-tracker here from one of South London’s finest beatmakers, with a track featuring the effervescent Scratch DVA called 'Oi Dirty', a rolling bass-heavy number with flighty percussion and grime inflections. Title track 'Hold Me' features Cooly’s own vocals with a simple lyrical refrain, but fast-forward to' Molly', which builds nicely with decayed chords and tech flourishes.

Things Next Door - Alis - Astro:dynamics

Three slices of slightly empirical drone and one super delay-laden drum track make up Alis’ long-awaited debut on the gloriously formed Astro:dynamics label, ‘Things Next Door’. Shabby and brittle to a fault, it’s eerily reas- suring.

Coming Your Way EP - Andre Lodemann - DFTD

Buzzin' Fly and Freerange alumnus Lodemann drops two skilfully constructed tracks for Defected's diffusion imprint DFTD. Lovely things they are. 'Coming Your Way' finds the East Berlin-born producer building and layering like a master craftsman, creating classy understatement where others would perhaps just go all out with its bassy synths. On the flip, 'Feeling Good' oozes class too, with its gentle pianos, vocals swirling, samples appearing and then disappearing in the deep. There's a lot to love here.

Solar Sailing - John Daly - One Track

John Daly's latest release for One Track showcases the Irish producer's ability to merge musical elements with DJ-friendly arrangements. The 'Full Tide' version of 'Sailing' is informed by Detroit techno as dreamy, woozy chords unfold over a raw, humming bass and tingly percussive slivers. The 'Deep' version brings the chords to the fore, placed over doubled-up claps, while the 'Rhythm Section' version focuses on dense percussion and rolling conga drums. Fans of vintage Kevin Saunderson should seek out 'Sailing'.
