Great Stuff Grooves returns to bring some electronic warmth into your winter, with a dozen hot tracks from producers across the world, both established and upcoming.
David Penn kicks off with a fusion of filtered fun and chunky techno intent on I get High. From there, Spanish trio David Amo, Julio Navas & Marc Maya whip up a sizeable tribal groove on La Policia, passing the baton on to Filthy Rich and his nu skool speed garage romp Rave In A Cave. Ridney keeps it on a UK tip with the euphoric pianos and arpeggios of 13:37, before Boris' druggy Funky Bells shows that this compilation offers up deeper shades of techno too.
Need more funk? Mike Newman & Hoxton Whores' Every Sound has it by the bucketload, as does Tom Wax's rolling, refreshingly different acid-bassed Let's Groove On. Roy Rosenfeld's Knock Knock is just bugged-out as hell, resplendent of quirky grooves and messed-up vocals, leading us towards the measured big room pumping of Paul Strive's The Chance. Raul Mezcolanza's A Reality treads a similarly bubbly path, before Townston & Delgado take a more playful approach with the deft stabs of Groovesolution. It's left to Alec Chizhik & Markus Mehta to give the compilation a more demure finale, with the subtle machinations of Monolith.
As ever, it's a no-nonsense selection that's aimed squarely at the dancefloor. It's the sound of winter; only a little hotter...
