Born Out Of Cheapness & Frustration - Ellis de Havilland - Bunker 4000

In the strange world of the Hague's Bunker, it's always hard to separate truth from fiction. In this instance let's assume that the late US producer Ellis de Havilland did actually exist and that he made the lo-fi, murky grooves that inhabit 'Cheapness'. Sounding like they were recorded in the basement of a crack house on Chicago's south side, each track verges on the puerile, but de Havilland manages to infuse his grimy acid adventures with just enough Steve Poindexter-style funk to make them palatable.

Tambacounda EP - Clap! Clap! - Black Acre

Kicking off the new year in style, Black Acre offers up Clap! Clap! with a four-track EP of poly-rhythms and Afro-centric missiles. Opening track, 'Elon Mentana' is a tempo-shifting, mind-boggling tune, while 'Tambacounda’s White Magic' starts off slow but detonates midway through with a collective assault of infectious Afro rhythms and huge bass weight. 'Kalauma' rounds things off with a nod to footwork. Essential music. 

Better At Making Time - De Lux - Scion AV

This has been out a while, but with all that Christmas/New Year stuff, it got a bit lost in the melee! We thought it would be a shame not to give it a little plug, so here it is: a killer three-track EP from LA duo De Lux, which is laced with infectious and inviting disco-not-disco in the spirit of Talking Heads, Brian Eno and all things DFA. A touch of class. 

By A Thread (Hybrid Minds Remix) - Mediks - AudioPorn Records

Like a satisfying soup on an icy winter's day, this is a drop of heart-warming liquid that will surely thaw even lovers of the darkest, coldest drum & bass. Calming, sweet and emotional vocals stitch the track together with gently plucked strings providing the core melody. Crashing cymbals and a graceful drum pattern implement the percussion. Both Mediks and Hybrid Minds are turning the heads of the scene's most influential tastemakers, so this is not an EP to be missed.
