Mikhaylo Vityk released a slew of records under his Vakula moniker this year, but the album released by Dekmantel by his Vedomir guise really stood out. Slow burning, haunting shit from the Ukrainian producer.

Helium Robots
Jarza EP - Theo Parrish 12"
Running Back

EWAN WILMOTT, here as HELIUM ROBOTS, provides 2 brilliant tracks to the RUNNING BACK label - imaginative electro, balearic, disco music. On the flip, THEO PARRISH remixes "JARZA" and brings 2 different outcomes - both of which are magical trips through sound. Essential!

Locked Groove
Rooted 12"

Hotflush presents the debut 12" from Belgian newcomer Locked Groove aka Tim Van de Meutter. The young producer delivers three hypnotizing and genre bending tracks that expertly weave the sounds of Berghain, soulful house and UK garage into a single crushing package. The Rooted EP draws you in with the title track, bouncing along to an acid baseline, then moves onto 'Drowning,' a moody techno track that was included on Scuba's DJ-Kicks mix compilation, filled with drum and ambient samples taken from field recordings. Lastly, 'Change,' a production that smartly melds classic house grooves with industrial techno, demonstrates Locked Groove's rhythmic finesse and long-term promise as an artist.
