Alex A’s Reality is up first, a tuff-ish tech-houser with dramatic filtered synths and a spoken, sampledÂ male vocal. Eddy LassemblÃ©e’s Sound Of Da Police, which follows, is a lively lil’ bouncer with a nagging acid riff and cheeky bites from both Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and (obviously) KRS-One, as well as “bounce!” vocal of its own. Mathieu Basi & Keedo’s 3am In Detroit then takes us into far deeper territory, as you’d probably already guessed from the title, while finally Sterbal’s CreasedÂ is aÂ lo-slung, bassy houserÂ with prog and rave elements and a “don’t you tell me” vocal sample.
IfÂ pushed then Sound Of Da Police and 3am In Detroit are the standouts for me â€“ but only just because this is good stuff all round.
