36 – Fantazia

Fantazia came out on the brilliantly-named album Weaponised Serenity around six months ago, but aside from this piece from A Strangely Isolated Place I can’t find any coverage for it at all. Recorded by Dennis Huddleston under his 36 alias for the 9128.live label – which asks artists to push their creative boundaries by presenting new and experimental approaches to music creation – Weaponised Serenity is a joyous journey through Huddleston’s rave heritage, exploring both the deeply meditative qualities and drug-fulled hedonism of the rave, often within a single track.

DJ Danny – On A Mountain

I can already feel the backlash building against the new album from former PC Music-affiliate Danny L Harle aka DJ Danny, but frankly if you don’t find even the tiniest bit of joy in this album you’re dead inside and there is no hope for you. On A Mountain perfectly blends rave sounds from the peak of its 90s ridiculousness with crisp, thumping PC-ish production, injecting us with a mighty pure shot of rave nostalgia. Gas masks at the ready.

Flaurese – Sake Of Lust

I heard this on the radio earlier today as the sun was just breaking through the morning haze and it made me feel incredibly calm and happy. It’s from London producer Flaurese’s debut EP which is out now on Circa ’99, and it’s a real delight: warm chords and winding melodies with an almost 8-bit bassline that chugs on throughout before entering throwback rave territory for the final third. Quite the debut.
