DJ Bone – Circus World [Subject Detroit]
Bloody hell. DJ Bone has always had the utmost respect from all corners of the globe. He has the soulful techno sound that I adore and this release is really showing his deeper side. Deep, soulful and highly dramatic to boot – this kind of shit is right up my street.

Mister X – Unbalanced [Subject Detroit]
Mister X makes sublime motor city moment. The standout track ‘Hazy Bliss’ is an old-school deep house with a wailing vocal from Sunni. Reminiscent of Mr. Fingers’ finer moments and what’s more, it’s a dancefloor shóe-in. Another very good release from Subject Detroit.

Rennie Foster – Good Time Charlie [Subject Detroit]
More excellent quality stuff from Subject Detroit; GTC itself is a slow-burner and breathes old-school deep house and new-school minimal techno with incredible musicianship and immaculate production. Aux 88 have given it a ludicrous ghetto techno interpretation. DJ Bone’s deep concentration is one to get well and truly lost in only to re-emerge 12 minutes later to wonder where exactly the time went.

- A2. Aux 88’s Zoom mix

Stephen Brown – Subject Scotland 2 [Subject Detroit]
Stephen Brown returns to Subject Detroit with a fantastic four tracker of raw and jacking techno funk music. Absolutely stunning A side – I have been hammering both tracks for a while now. Our Soul has been remade and improved for the dancefloor, deep, emotional techno with a twist of Detroit influenced soul. Keygroups grooves like a mutha ! On the flip both tracks are as nice – delicious yet dark, dubbed out house with Chicago licks, swirling techno synths and relentless driving basslines. All in all this is a great package from a great producer.

Trench – Comatose [Subject Detroit]
Subject Detroit with yet another corking release – ‘Comatose’ comes with Donna Black, Aaron-Carl and DJ Bone mixes. The Original Slumber is a great pounding groover with a lurching synth that builds beautifully. It reminds me a little of early Jeff Mills. I can’t choose one of remixes, I love all of them !
