1.

Nohelani Cypriano – Lihue

Label: HanaOla Records

Boogie basslines and lovelorn vocals adorn this Floating-Points-endorsed Hawaiian soul cut now thankfully reissued on 45 by Athens of the North.

2.

VRRS – C63 AMG

Label: Black Venison

Slow-burning deep house cut on a limited hand-stamped 12” – yet somehow manages to overcome the clichés that description brings to mind.

 3.

The Wise Caucasian aka Steve O’Sullivan – Kutchie Dub

Label: Sushitech Records

Real nice flip of one of Big Youth’s best dub vocals, twisting King Tubby’s bassline into a dub techno framework.

 4.

Truncate – Dial

Label: Truncate

Broken techno classic given an unexpected repress; its sparse arrangement made powerful through its exact precision and force.

Hodge – Return To The East

Label: 

Berceuse Heroique seem to have upset a few people in the wake of THAT Loefah release but while they’re still releasing gems like this pulsating, beatless cut from Hodge, it’s hard to imagine they won’t be forgiven.
