Let's Not Start A Fight (Let's Get Down Tonight) (4:40)
Do Me Like That (4:37)
Review: Star Creature continues to thrill and inspire with each successive seven-inch single. The label's latest comes from debutants Family of Geniuses, a seven-piece boogie band from Chicago who back heritage influences with brilliant new songs. You'll find a perfect example on the A-side, where "Let's Not Start a Fight" - a sweet, perfectly-pitched boogie club cut that sounds to us like Escort making original electrofunk - sparkles from start to finish. Over on the flipside they doff a cap to the label's roots, offering up a brilliant cover of E Live's "Do Me Like That", the 2015 bomb that helped put Star Creature on the map.

Review: For their latest must-have release, nu-boogie maestros Star Creature has turned to Stroud-based boogie revivalists Situation. "Never Thought I'd Get You" is not only the West Country producers' latest hook-up with sweet-voiced soul man Andre Espeut, but arguably one of their strongest releases to date. The tasty original version - a sumptuous chunk of '80s groove revivalism full of intricate musical touches - kicks things off, before Dom Thompson re-imagines it as an analogue-rich slab of '80s soul revivalism. Mr Mulatto adds a little hip-hop-soul swing on his ace "Beatamix", the "Afro Acid" version takes the track closer to organic deep house territory, and Frank Situation's EP-closing remix is a snappy, peak-time ready club workout for those that like it fast and weighty.
