SUMMER SYNTH SMASH Undisputed disco-king Todd Terje tops his entirely ARP produced anthem Inspector Norse with this shamelessly camp, synth laden disco cut that will have you rollerskating around in leg warmers and cruising for pokey bum-sex. If you happen to be of a synth-geek persuasion check out Terjes' website Let's Nerd! where he questions famous producers about their production techniques and synthesiser tweakery. Fascintating stuff. If that's what you're into.

Utilising camera based movement detection and accelerometer technologies the device integrates directly with NI’s popular Traktor Pro DJ software and Pioneer's phenomenally successful range of DJ hardware.

CLASSIC 802S CLUB Any excuse. Any excuse at all to post Donna Allen's "Serious". If you happen to be unfamiliar with one of the greatest 80 dance tracks ever skip to 2:48 and treat your ears to THAT ridiculous vocal hook.

TECHNO HEAT Late night subsonic techno from Boddika forthcoming on Swamp81. Either Boddika has managed to corrupt the dubstep movement with electro and techno or dubstep has managed to find the kicks and snares it's been missing since its genesis. They were probably in a pub in Croydon.

TIP TIPPER More proof, should you need it, that God does not exist. Dave Tipper needs open heart surgery. Why did this not happen to David Guetta? At time of writing Dave's getting tanked up on entonox while surgeons are sharpening cleavers and preparing dive into his chest to repair his ticker.

JULIO BASHED LESS The darling bass track of the hair-gelled student masses get's a laid back work over by Jamie Hartley and features a few more plinks, lots more plonks and a bit more of the original vocal from You To Me Are Everything. First recorded in 1976 by Northern soul outfit The Real Thing "You To Me Are Everything" was subsequently covered by 902s UK pop disaster Sonia who failed because she's massively ginger.

MONSTER BREAKS AND BASS Just so happened to catch young upstart Real Connoisseur DJing in a dirty basment nightclub this weekend. The 19 old Oxfordian successfully took the place to pieces and then kindly handed me a copy of his forthcoming release "Jungle Jakarta" due to drop some time in June. ( I think that's what he said .I couldn't see very well by that point) A thunderous rolling cut fusing electro sensibilities with crack-smoking warehouse jungle breaks. Watch out for this one.
