Local Hero: Kid Robotik ft/Becca Starr - Distance/Exit
We always suspected Kid Robotik was on the cusp of something utterly sensational and this week our suspicions were fully consolidated. Enlisting the hugely talented Becca Starr on vocals, 'Distance' and Exit' are searing with raw emotion - a mixture of compelling highs, disturbing lows and a rumbling sub bass which delivers the unilateral feeling Glasgow has well and truly arrived. The 'Distance' EP is forthcoming on Massive Music - check back soon for full release details, while Exit is being released as a free download.

Next up our Techno loving Spectra pal, B Tone leaked this last week - a rather eccentric slice of 3am devastation which grapples with your dancefloor in an onslaught of bass induced rage, one moment slapping you around the face with cold, hards synths and the next caressing you with feather-like strokes to see you gently drifting away. Perfect as a set closer.

No stranger to our columns and air waves, Quahaze returns with another deep-moving cut of solarized funk, helped along by producing partner Kutfatha. Clocking in on the low 100's, this sun-stroked groove rider has a bassline which literally melts in your ears. Complimented by a soothing vocal cut used quite cleverly as part of the instrumentation, 'Reputation' is summer personified.

If your not already familiar with Dersonna's pounding batton of bass-ridden Techno then scoot along to last months 'Get To Know...' feature. In the meantime here is brand new cut from his forthcoming 'Beat Of The Bassdrum EP'. People of a nervous disposition should probably take a swerve as what Dersonna has created through this 8min monster is utterly terrifying. Pick it up on 3rd Abstract Records soon.
