John Roberts - Pruned (buy)

Cannot get enough of this from John Roberts, taken from the superb release Mirror, a single that has seen his work put on a par with that of DJ Koze, Lawrence and Efdemin. Yep, it's that good.

Nicolas Stefan - Closer (buy)

Nicolas Stefan - Time Is Over (buy)

Favourite producer of the moment, Nicolas Stefan. His split with Matzak for Speicher 65 left completely blew me away with its undulating rhythm... definitely one of my faves of the year. Then taken from a release on K2 last year is the track Time Is Over, one that will certainly appeal to fans of Gui Boratto.

Rodriguez Jr - Pandora (buy)

Taken from Kids Of Hula out on Leena this Rodriguez Jr really track caught me. Melodic summery techno with spacey synths giving it a unique sound.

I said I wouldn't go again, but the lure cherry beer and a ridiculous line up was enough to see us book for Pukkelpop again. Kind of intrigued to see how Luciano and co pull off the Aether thing, from what i've seen it looks a bit like the Fifteen To One set but with fancy visual effects and enough tribal samples to make your average Peruvian street pan-piper feel really quite envious. Excited nonetheless!
