Tunes giving us a tickly fizz inside

Give Me Monaco - Ply

You may know him as Emseatee but the new name UK producer Leigh Redding goes by these days is Give Me Monaco, and he's just released his debut album From the Coral to the Grey. It's an immensely enjoyable listen, smoothly produced and uplifting, with nods to Rival Consoles and Four Tet. My fav track is Ply.

Adelphi Music Factory - Area 39

Absolutely banging old-skool vibes on this track from the Sheffield beatmaker!

‘Area 39’ delves into heritage UK dance culture, where the old school sounds that filled the speakers of Sheffield’s clubs in the nineties take full control. Enormously raw drum breaks meet classic rave stabs and high-pitched vocal sampling for a full-fledged joy ride

The rest of the Joy & Fantasy EP isn't too shabby either.

ARU - Fighting Hatred

Debut track on Lazerdiscs from precocious French talent Aru called Fighting Hatred is rather good, with its eighties synth vibes and sweet, emotional melody.

Trackmaster Dre - Grandmaster Acid

Title track from this new EP by Trackmaster Dre is, to put it bluntly, a banger! Built on an addictive, funky bassline, it's an Acid Techno workout with an old-skool vibe that would satisfy the most disheartened Techno head.

Out now on Andre Kronert's ODD / EVEN imprint.

Kelly Lee Owens - Corner Of My Sky (feat. John Cale)

Standout track from the new Kelly Lee Owens album Inner Song is the collaboration with Welsh musical legend John Cale. Superb music from Owens perfectly matched with Cale's song.

Loraine James - Don't You See It ft Jonnine

I started listening to this, the third track from forthcoming Nothing EP by Loraine James, thinking, wow, I hadn't appreciated what a lovely singing voice James had, and she sounds like Jonnine Standish from HTRK to boot... then it dawned on me, guest vocalist! It's lovely.

Nico Rosenberg - Animus (feat. Year of Glad)

Standout track from Rosenberg's new album Music Holds Us. I love the gusto of that chorus

Ellen Allien - Walking In The Dark

Maintaining the quality of her last album Alientronic Allien has delivered her third album in three years with AurAA, a bijou collection where every track is simply top-drawer. Walking In The Dark is my highlight.
