Original rave classic from 1992 is hauled out of its Scottish label Hubba Hubba's vaults, reissued by UTTU. Haughton's awesomely sexy Mo' Better Grooves and Ruffneck's deadly speed tribal mixes from the original are included alongside UTTU's Capracara and Marquis Hawkes and Northern Souls 2013 reworks.
More impeccable post-Drexciyan armoury from incredibly productive Detroit native Sherard Ingram. 'Cryptic' a real killer, a deepsea bassline lurking under skull-tickling synth probes, 'Know Your Enemy' is a tightly-spun warcry softened with elastic pads, whilst 'Solitude' bounces with a gleeful swing.

UTTU continue to sweat great releases from their pores, with Liverpudlian producer Slackk weaving paths in strange, fantastical worlds. Rich with oriental mystique and weapon-moulded riddims, with a surreal timeless computer game sheen like dodging shurikens in Street Fighter on mushies all day.

Danny Wolfers never disappoints, following up his album for Clone this gem of an EP on UK's UTTU. 'Star Gazing' has an early UK rave vibe, glowing strong with cosmic synth-journeys, 'Visions in My Mind' oozes an anthemic euphoria which completely hits the spot, 'Wayfaring Stranger' fizzles with intergalactic ecstasy.

Pop Ambient 2012, Seldom Seen, John Talabot

Exquisitely assaulting futurist jungle dimensions, Radio 1xtra's DJ Q dishes out this devilish EP on UTTU, 'All Junglist' teasing a synapse-hotwired synthline direct to your darkcore dancebone and 'Will I Ever Be Free' tootling epic bassline whimsies to new energy levels. Woah.
Two simultaneous releases by outstanding talent Maya Medvešek, the UTTU one combining contemporary juke, dubstep, and acid house flavours into a raw and energetic EP. Remixes by DJ Wilson and Altered Natives. Recommended.

Unknown to the Unknown nail it once more with this mad collab of DJ Stingray, Gerald Donald and Cestrian (Ali Renault). Mixes 1 & 2 ignore all speed limits with footwerk-inspired industrial breaks, whereas mixes 3 & 4 hit more classic electro territory. Great video as well - killer release!
