17 Steps present New Atlantis, a 5 track EP from versatile DJ, producer and dance music historian Chrissy. The EP takes its name from an unexpected source – a 17th century utopian novel of the same name by Sir Francis Bacon, depicting a future society in which science has become the ruling principle.
One of our all-time favorite duos, Catz’N Dogz, are back again on Dirtybird with Body. Fierce from the first note to the last, it features the spoken word vocals of Simon Black, who delivers a liberating monologue on being who you want to be and doing what you want to do, regardless of what anyone thinks.
January is the month for dreaming, or so the saying goes and there’s more than enough on 2020’s Dots and Pearls 6 to satisfy the wildest flights of fantasy, as Cocoon Recordings invites well known international artists to once again rub shoulders with some of the freshest new talents around.
Dubbed Defected’s ‘secret weapon’ by label boss Simon Dunmore, Low Steppa’s ferocious DJ sets and club-focussed productions have earned him a reputation as an authority on dancefloor dynamics.
DJ Tennis’ Life And Death imprint kicks off 2020 with three unusually crafted finely detailed tracks from Bawrut.

Bash (aka Julio Bashmore) graces Trule’s fifth release and the first in a series of ten inch white label singles with Jubilee, a sub heavy, minimal, UK garage dub that manages to marry the sparser techno vibes of his Conch releases with the subtle anthemic quality of his other alias.
