We've got a bit of a love/hate relationship with Jack Beats, sometimes their futuristic, bass-bending bombs hit the spot with a perfect balance between dancefloor-twisting Electro and supersonic House, other times their approach can push the boundaries a little too far, leaving us bewildered and quite frankly a little annoyed. Thankfully new single, 'All Night' falls to the former with a quality 90's inspired break and just the right amount of Jack Beats nonsense to fuel the floor.

It's a busy time for Ed Banger, what with the recent release of Busy P & DJ Mehdi's 'Let The Children Techno', the forthcoming release of new Justice single 'Civilisation' and now the strategic leak of SebastiAn's 'Embody' it proves that while some French labels may falling apart others are utterly thriving. Featuring on SebastiAn's debut album 'Total', 'Embody' is a seriously slick slice of Prince-tinged electro.

If there was ever a good time to try your luck at mainstream success it's right now. As we know Drum&Bass & Dubstep are both enjoying commercial popularity so you can't blame the likes of Drumsound & Bassline Smith for giving it a shot. 'Freak' is a bouncy, electro-fied slice of jump-up D&B which comes pulsing with energy but unfortunately lacking in originality.

There's not really much to argue about anymore, Garage is back and it's sounding as fresh as it did ten years ago. While the underground producers may be creating the more tangible tracks it's Mike Delinquent who is running the commercial racket. Here he get's the girls on the floor for Yasmin's new single 'Finish Line', in what sounds very much like Sweet Female Attitude reincarnated.
