"Had Enough" is a cross-genre club track features the amazing vocal talent of Richard Sonsom, a killer piano hook, unforgettable main synth and one of the naughtiest bass-lines.. The Had Enough EP includes among other remixes from Matt Fear and Luke Pompey
Nicholas drops the tempo, adds a jacking drum pattern and turns up the volume on the keyboard to create something that manages to feel even more housey than the original. Not bad, considering "How Do You Love a Black Woman?" is a stone cold classic.

Soul Clap return with the fourth instalment of their ongoing edits series with this must have 12" which delivers some typically unique transformations. The A-Side sees "Isley Experiment" opening with some serious bass and huge drums wrongfooting you before dropping some smooth piano riffs and sultry vocals. "Shake Those Fries" meanwhile employs some serious analogue weirdness in conjunction with major vocal mangling and a body shaking, descending bassline. On the flip side, "Twist" opens with a sinister bass riff, whilst samples trickle into some off-kilter licks straight out of David Lynch movie, before then erupting into all out guitar solo action, while "Ghost" takes reversed samples and intergalactic bleeps and fuses them with swamp guitar to create an ethereal and disturbing edit that is quite unique. We probably don't have to tell you this, but these are going to be massive. Release 26 December, 2011 only on 12"

When it comes to making love PillowTalk can definitely teach you a thing or two based on their latest sleazy release on Wolf + Lamb. The Far From Heaven EP is pretty much sex music.
Far From Heaven is a four track EP which, on two tracks, goes deeper into song based r&b than have the trio before, but which also gets a little more energised and dancefloor aligned for the other two. An accomplished and underlying musicality, though, is never far away..

2. Weekend Girl
3. Far From Home
4. Street Walker
"Heavens Gate" is a delicate disco lullaby where claps, gentle chords and one finger notes all drift around each other as a breathy vocal hangs in the air. It’s rinsed with an 80s innocence and comes across with a heartfelt but tongue-in-cheek cool.
"Weekend Girl" is a steamy R&B charmer which snakes its way under your skin with wet, echoing claps, tinkling melodies and a seductive 90s male vocal (which turns to coy, softly spoken rap) all coalescing into the creamiest of creamy slo-jams which its impossible not to love, frankly.
"Far From Home" is a gaunt house jam with eerie synth work, purposeful male vocal and subtle but effective pop-house baseline.
"Street Walker" is a steady Roland beat stripped to its core with a magnetic vocal performance to fill the void and pull you in while a horn-like bassline burping out over and over as hi-hats and claps grow ever louder in the background.
At the tender age of 21 years old, David August is one producer already displaying all the makings of an international superstar. Well under the wing of Diynamic boss Solomun, David August gets set to unleash his long-awaited third EP on the label, the irresistible "You Got To Love Me" EP.
Title track "You Got To Love Me" takes hold with a driving, vocal line that will circulate your mind for days, an oscillating bassline, lazy congas and subtle disco claps keeping yougrooving all the way to the sprawling, accapella breakdown. "You Got To Love Me" is a guaranteed dancefloor bomb to spawn more August addicts.

Joining forces with the mighty Crosstown Rebels once again, Nico Purman exhibits his diverse talents and musical roots with the ‘Fade Away EP’, effortlessly straddling the disco-techno hybrid ground with a purple nod towards Prince.
Argentinean producer Nico Purman dazzled the Crosstown catalogue back in 2007 with his ‘Lunatique EP’, showcasing his techier style with the title track being licensed to the Get Lost 2 compilation mixed by Jamie Jones. Approaching a whole new sound, his ‘Fade Away EP’ is an uplifting journey, capturing the essence of funk with a futuristic edge whilst echoing Nico’s early musical influences and drumming credentials.
Title track "Fade Away", which became a highly requested single after appearing on Get Lost 4 mixed by Damian Lazarus, is a solid injection of disco riding a wave of electro synths along a tight groove and Prince-esque vocals. A powerful and punchy bass line secures "Fade Away" as a glitterball dancefloor delight.

Daniel Bortz has been DJing for 20 years, but he may just be the sleeper success of 2011. Despite playing little outside of his native Germany, Bortz has cultivated a following through an adroit run of sample-heavy house tracks.
Daniel Bortz is no. 70 on Resident Advisor's Top DJs of 2011 list.

James Blake - Limit To Your Love (DB Edit) by Incognitoloso
"B-Side" is a mid-tempo, lazy groove which gently opens out with warm delayed vocals and creeping drums - hypnotic and subtle, it’s one hell of an intro but the drop into the fat, sumptuous bass hook is pure joy. Steadily joined by soaring, high-end keyboard licks that balance the track beautifully.
