After having released, trippy-dynamic cuts from the likes of Rowlanz, Pascal Benjamin, and Kirik among others, Gran Canaria’s Focus On Egoless returns with yet another EP on board by label’s head Moray and Andrew aka Different Reflexion. Titled “Alfrent Vicent”, the EP features three massive bold-paced originals and a great re-interpretation by Honne Music co-owner Dieru who opts for hypnotic and catchy vibes to get on his remix of “Ni Pastis Ni Ketis”.
French maestro The Mekanism is back with more of his well-crafted beats, this time on the Adrianza Records label with two new singles that get remixed by label boss Adrianza & Lou Flores. Title track “LouLou” gets remixed by Adrianza & Lou Flores into another heady house cut with rich sci-fi motifs, sleek synths, and real warmth.
The entitled “Hours” marks a new chapter for producer & DJ, Thomas Macdonald as he says farewell to his previous alias of 6 years. An exciting new beginning in such bleak and uncertain times has proven to be just what he needed, delivering two dancefloor-ready tracks for when clubbing and nightlife returns. Now available to purchase from Bandcamp.

Alci finally joins Denis Kaznacheev’s with 7 originals wrapped under a fantastic 2×12″ release.

After having released groovy jams from the likes of Ray Mono, Casey Spillman, and DeMarzo among others, Rendr Records strikes back with another wicked EP by Wyatt Marshall and Sly Fox which also sees Ben Balance on the remix. In his version, the Mannheim-based producer turns “Arpeggiated Dreams” into an instant peak time, heads down, hands up duty driver. Blending hard-hitting drop moments with a break that gives you more suspense than a nineties horror flick. A true reflection of his capabilities and a compliment to the original.

Buongiorno Classic’s associate Paul Dc returns on Monday Morning Records with another infectious EP that combines minimal stripped-back sounds with a twisted and bouncy approach, giving us four impeccable dancefloor tools.
