George Smeddles – System On EP (South Records)
Release Date: 10th March 2023
Following an impressive year of more growth for ever-popular UK artist George Smeddles in 2022, his first South Records release of 2023 serves up a spirited selection of four immersive club-focused cuts that make up his ‘System On’ EP.
Kicking things off, the title cut ‘System On’ provides a generous serving of upbeat deep tech flavours, fusing dusty grooves and characteristically silky musicality from the outset, set alongside a catchy spoken vocal hook and endless splashes of sophisticated flair from start to finish.
‘Get Loose’ comes next, pushing a classic house-inspired agenda filled with skipping drum work and watertight percussive drive. Lush chords, classy synth stabs, and soulful vocal runs undulate throughout the mix, giving the track a gripping continuity that keeps you reeled in and on your feet.
‘Mind Games’ follows, sliding back into minimal/deep tech realms with bumpy beats and basement vibes. Stripped-back rhythms and rich bass tones drive the track alongside another smooth vocal topline as it punches in and out of well-polished atmospheric breaks.
‘On Your Feet’ seals the EP with deeper nuances, swinging cadence and memorable vocals. Another chunky dancefloor heater built around a rhythmic sub-bass melody and a concoction of harmonic fragments will do just as the title suggests – and then some.
Rodrigo Ferrari – Mind Numbing EP (D-Edge Records)
After almost one year after his last release on D-Edge Records, Rodrigo Ferrari is back on the label with four original groovy tracks. The EP rides over deep & tech, exploring intriguing atmospheres with a touch of broken beats moments.
Not to miss.
Uone – Phantom Whistler Chapter 1 (Beat & Path Recordings)
The ambient opener’ Universal Wisdom’ dispatches lessons amongst a lattice of synths and sounds. ‘We are spiritual beings having a human experience’, the sage guru relays, opening the circle in a didactic fashion.
A soft, deep house throb welcomes the listener to ‘Project MK Ultra’: Digestible melodies swirl around a shiny harmonica, a trademark whistle, and a vocal discussing past wrongs done by the powers that be; the massive breakdown a tight allegory for the societal tension looking to break.
‘Strike the Match’ is seductive, offering sweet leaf etiquette as a big middle finger to stifling authority. With guitars dripping in chorus pedals and a fat 4/4 engine, this one has it all: sex, drugs and rock n roll — Wild West style.

Matt Sawyer – Rendering (Villahangar Records)
After almost two years since the last EP, Cloud’s Song of 2021, Matt Sawyer returns with a new release for Villahangar: “Rendering”, a song whose story coincides with a personal journey that becomes musical: a starting overture, to which drums and pressing rhythms are modeled around the drop and the piano turn. An experimentation after the one in “Behind the sun”, a track together with ManuEl of Cloud’s Song EP: a psychedelic melody continues to evolve, but appeares magically, for a turn towards another surprising and unexpected direction.
Created over several years, inspired by the piano turns of classics from a ten-year archive, the track starts without any main riff, only atmosphere and waiting, and after the right squaring of sounds, the melody is enriched with multiple influences. A song that is the result of a series of life experiences, beautiful or not, formative: the beginning of a new path where the freedom to express oneself in all honesty is told, with a sincere and disenchanted look.
Cosenza – Doubble Troubble EP (MicroHertz Records)
Release Date: 3rd March 2023
With a penchant for quality avant-garde artists and releases, Archie Hamilton’s MicroHertz releases the ‘Doubble Troubble EP’ from Argentina’s Cosenza, which comes complete with a sublime remix from the highly regarded underground French artist Man/ipulate.
Cosenza is fast becoming one of Argentina’s most respected artists in the minimal deep tech scene. Since his first release back in 2019 his stock has continued to rise through his releases on esteemed labels such as Key Records, Djebali, Politics Of Dancing, Hoarder, Talman and more. His music is regularly supported by industry luminaries such as Hot Since 82, wAFF, Sidney Charles and Archie Hamilton, who recently remixed Cosenza’s track Space Runner on Key Records. He’s a regular on the touring circuit in South America and further afield, taking his stripped back groove infused sounds to Europe and countries such as Spain, Germany and Poland.
For his first release on MicroHertz he unveils his ‘Doubble Troubble EP’. First out of the box is ‘Hitting Records’ a track of pure quality, blending old school analogue drum patterns and synths into 2023 style productions. Its pack full of groove and its hypnotic deep feel is perfect to lose yourself on the dancefloor. Next up is ‘Waterproof’ which takes its name from the crazy tripped out water droplet sound that moves through the track giving it a very special and unique sound. This combined with a killer bassline will hook the crowd and take them on a journey into the deep.
Last but certainly not least is Man/ipulate’s remix of ‘Doubble Troubble’. The French selector and trusted member of the Sentaku crew has been enthralling crowds with his delectable DJ sets around his native France and further afield in places such as the UK, Germany and Spain. His remix is a stunning 7 minute journey of deep and elegant bliss. This will be a key track for those with a discerning ear and finishing this EP to perfect.
