Dollkraut - Loot (buy)

I was drawn to this by the Krause Duo remix, but the original shines above. Reverbed vocals over a dusty and deep house melody. Lovely swinging soulful stuff.

DJ Yoav B - Higher Love (buy)

Delsin has hit a real purple patch of late. Mindblowing work from Syrinx and Redshape tempered with some continually impressive and cohesive sound experiments from Morphosis. DJ Yoav B adds to all this good music with his quite unique Love Dubs EP. Incredible music.

Friendship Connection - All Is Just A Matter Of Time (buy)

Friendship Connection. Sinister French techno with a decidedly German feel.

Bank Holiday weekend is just around the corner and as ever there's no shortage good things going on, if you are in London one of the highlights must be Todd Terje's 'Remasters Of The Universe' CD launch at Fabric on 29th May where there will be no escaping the good sounds whatever your taste, from Andrew Weatherall to Slam to a dedicated room of Scandinavian disco hedonism. I've got a pair of tickets up for grabs courtesy of Fabric and to get your hands on them just email me the answer this question sometime before the end of Thursday.

Q: Which iconic female famously dated He-Man Dolph Lundgren in the early-1980s?

Tangoterje - Home Computer (buy)

at his finest here, mixing Kraftwerk's Home Computer with bits of Strafe's Set It Off.

STL - Fog And Snow (buy)

Perlon stalwart STL continually puts out amazing music on his own Something Records. Nocturnal Mixdowns and 4 Tracker being personal highlights of late.

Culoe De Song - The Fallen Siren (buy)

Mmmmmm. Mule Musiq put this out by South African producer Culoe De Song. It is quite beautiful.

Newworldaquarium - The Force (Ame Remix) (buy)

did two remixes of this Newworldaquarium song, I really do have a hard time choosing which I prefer. Love.

Skudge - Melodrama (buy)

Absolutely not sounding out of place in the Berghain amongst Ben Klock etc would be the sounds of Skudge, techno rhythms with an old house vibe afforded by the vocals. Skudge is a new label out of Stockholm, and very promising it is too. Grab the vinyl before it's gone.

Ken Hayakawa - Thank You For Listening (buy)

Ken Hayakawa
is making some really great music just now. This was out on Tjumy earlier in the year and he's also got a new release out on Kina (see below). Thank You For Listening is a peak time house belter, love it.

Nhar - Wisdom (buy)

Kina was until recently a digital only label run out of Venice by Cosmic Cowboys. Their first physical release Gentle Velvet showcases what the label is about. Previously though Nhar released this sensational piece on the label, so nice.

Erdbeerschnitzel -4 Months (Mark E Remix) (buy)

Quite excited by Erdbeerschnitzel. His 4 Months EP on 3rd Strike set out stall as deep and slow house with a very catchy disco edge. It was the remixes on the EP that caught my attention, both blinders, a 110bpm space chugger from Mark E and an uptempo Burkina Faso special from Arto Mwambe. But the follow up to 4 Months further enhances Erdbeerschnitzel's own production credentials. Below is the hilariously captioned video to his new track 'Cotton' that is sure to have all Tensnake fans satisfied by it's glorious melody.

Makam - Hide You (buy)

Deceptively simple, massively effective. This is a killer house track from Dutch producer Makam. Put out by Lauhaus' Soweso label.

Robsounds - Sea Of Retardation (buy)

Veering off down a progressive minimal track is this gem from Robsounds.

Ace - Never Know (buy)

LiveJam Records presents the new Through Dimensions Of Sound. Live recordings pressed to vinyl delivering something special, something raw.

Morning Factory - Raw Tunes Vol. 1 (buy)

Taken from Morning Factory's Forgotten Moments release on Andy Vaz's Yore Records. Essential house music from this talented Dutch duo. Excited to hear more!

Greymatter - Seventh Disco (buy)

This is superb, Greymatter loops a bit of Rose Royce and turns it into a dizzying slow house masterpiece. Put out by the excellent Wolf Music.

I'm going to see Forest Swords play next week and i'm really excited. This chap's music is exhilirating.

Laid back dreamy space funk from the hotly tipped Space Dimension Controller.
