'Greazy (VSOP Mix)' - NEED FOR MIRRORS & HLZ FEAT STAPLETON - V Recordings

"A new 2014 VIP mix, more stripped-back and sinister. Forthcoming on the V Records VIP compilation."

Rough 2 - Tessela - R&S

Oh my giddy, always good to have new Tessela drilling holes in your buggered and oversaturated eardrums, and with his new tenure on R&S we find him in suitably uncompromising spirits. ‘Rough 2’ is good, yet feels a little expected. ‘Butchwax’ is more like it; bat-shit crazy, tough wormhole drums and more complexity than Phillip Glass on LSD, with a splash of Afrika Bambaataa tossed in for a retro wet dream. ‘C’mon, Let’s Slow Dance’ is like Dizzie said, “Bonkers”.

Ran Away - Da Tweekaz feat Ghost Wars - Dirty Workz

These guys keep on delivering vocal hardstyle anthems bordering on a commercial level, but that’s not a bad thing for the scene in general. Featuring a catchy male vocal and bleepy main melody, some clever pitch-bending sections give it that extra edge. This is one of those tracks that's made to be played at peak-time on the main stage at festivals of the harder styles this summer.

Decay Version’s Part 1 - Efdemin - Dial Records

A nice little remix package here, with Bristol’s Asusu kicking things off with a sublime technoid treatment of ‘Some Kind of Up and Down Yes’, all simplistic percussive elements and a warm, gently bouncing bassline. But don’t miss out on the space is the place remix from Borderline State that takes the original of ‘Parallaxis’ and reroutes it into a delicately cacophonous jazz plus journey.
