Terrible Eagle - Say Yes (buy)

Terrible Eagle - Moneyshot (buy)

You only need to take a look at Terrible Eagle to work out that their oeuvre is one presided over by scuzzy electro-rock, and sure enough, Blackwater is a sickly inundation of filthy synths, broken beatboxes and unintelligible vocals. In a strange, yet timely sort of way these songs make for an electronic equivalent of what Wavves, Blank Dogs et al are up to in the field of garage rock - shaping noisy texture into heavily disguised pop vignettes. Boomkat.

Basic Soul Unit - The Stand (buy)

Flamboyant, squeaky synths lead the way on this track by Basic Soul Unit, add to that some excellent disco samples and you're onto a dancefloor winner.

Smith n Hack - For Disco Play Only

Smith n Hack - Ultra-Range Sound Process

Couple of ace experimental disco jams from Smith n Hack's 2002 effort, Tribute.

Mauno Kalevi - Supercry (buy)

Superb slow burner by Mauno Kalevi taken from Vol.2 of the You Can Trust A Man With A Moustache series.
