Review: The tracks on this EP from DJ Boring were made for his acclaimed live show, and have been getting fans in a spin ever since. Opener "Like Water" is lithe house music with a cosmic feel that will have you afloat in no time then "Another Day" get more ravey on thumping drums and busy synths. The lush, serene deep house of "Stockholm Syndrome" might be a highlight for us, then "Seems Like Yesterday" closes out in breezy, groovy fashion. The fantastic sleeve has been designed by New York based artist Amir Jahanbin, who was also responsible for the visuals at the live show, making this an even more essential purchase.
Review: Having spent the last few years establishing himself as one of the world's most consistent makers of melodious, head-in-the-clouds deep house and blissful electronica, Project Pablo has secured a deal with Ninja Tune offshoot Technocolour. His first outing for the imprint is as colourful, hazy and tuneful as you'd expect, with glistening opener "Is It Dry?" setting the tone. The Montreal-based producer breaks up the beats a little on the cheeky but dreamy analogue funk of "No Sweat", before dropping a fistful of happy pills on the bustling, up-tempo dream house revivalism of "You Know". Finally, he explores his long-held love of breakbeat-driven tracks on the yearning but jaunty brilliance of closer "Oh Fer Sure".
