Opening with a bright, upbeat and funky disco house groove as synths pulse and wind with a relentless energy while frazzled electronics fizzle and explode with colour, and rain on the dance floor below. While a feelgood party vibe is maintained throughout, this carefree aura is punctuated by increasingly frantic crisp and crunchy beats, which increases the tension, energy and harder edge. ‘Roof View (House Mix)’ is a gift that keeps on giving, revealing itself ever more addictive and alluring with each and every listen.

Mazoulew – ‘Ki Lo’

Continuing to transcend genres, Mazoulew is back with new single ‘Ki Lo’ – the third instalment lifted from his forthcoming Movements EP, out October 15. ‘Ki Lo’ sounds beautifully organic as it traverses the realms of techno, downtempo electronica with ambient touches. Heavy on mood, texture and atmosphere, carefully coaxed out, it builds slowly and smoothly as beats ripple and crunch softly while synths pulse and amid a spacious world of shifting atmospherics and frazzled electronics. A hypnotic and completely captivating intro to the forthcoming EP – and superb as usual from Mazoulew.

‘Chakchouka’ is the debut single from Parisian pairing Samoun. Composed of two ‘famous’ producers, they are described as “the investigators of the Techno Raï genre” – whatever the back story, their debut single is a mouthwatering slice of minimalist heaven. 

Delivered with a deft touch that brings to mind the golden age of French electro (think Mr Oizo, Justice & a slew of other Ed Banger luminaries & early Daft Punk), metallic percussion, peculiar vocal and woozy, ghostly synth creates an otherworldly environment before the bassline drops and things lift off as it swaggers, grooves and moves. It is an absolutely stunning track, one that is not only addicting but destined to get people moving.
