Moonlight On The Malago (hand-stamped 12")
Cat: NUDES-001. Rel: 04 Mar 13
Deep House
  1. Moonlight On The Malago
  2. Does It Bother You?
Review: Looking to Bristol for their debut release, Argot offshoot Tasteful Nudes launches in illustrious fashion with this record from Borai. More commonly seen alongside fellow Bristolian October with respected transmissions for Apple Pips and BRSTL, Borai's first solo endeavour shows he's got talent in abundance across two tracks that are intent on delivering pure pleasure, rather than questing for some unknown territory on the outer reaches of electronic music. Led cut "Moonlight On The Malago" is all about the harmonising effect that the sunny keys and delay laden chords have on your sense. It's quite the coincidence that the Sun's in full effect outside the Juno office since this record arrived. On the flip, Borai's clever usage of the "Think" break adds a party starting element to "Does It Bother You?" that proves as rewarding as it does surprising.

Last Time Out (hand-stamped 12")
Cat: NUDES 003. Rel: 04 Nov 13
Techno
  1. Last Time Out
  2. Midnight Run
Review: After his last solo appearance for Tasteful Nudes served up a dose of sunkissed house music that was soft to the touch but steeped in musicality, Bristol's Borai now transfers his considerable ear for melodics to a tougher template of 4/4. "Last Time Out" is built around a ripped beat that snaps hard on the clap and struts purposefully on the hats, but it's the insistence of the chord stab that will embed the tune in the minds of all and sundry. It's still positively catchy, but it moves with a more weighted presence. "Midnight Run" is more thoughtful, turning to romantic Detroit strings to tell a drawn out story compared to the snappy riffs that have peppered other Borai tracks.

Razor/Predators (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: HILEVRECS 001. Rel: 15 Oct 18
Breakbeat
  1. Razor
  2. Predators
Review: Bristol-based badman Borai has been quietly issuing some of the city's most immense club wreckers for many years now, sometimes in partnership with October, and sometimes flying solo (as on the crucial Anybody From London for Hotline Recordings). Here he's inaugurating Higher Level with some absolute dance slayers, kicking off with the mammoth pitched-down drum funk and gut-wrenching bass of "Razor" before switching stance for the dreamier but no less rowdy "Predators." Both cuts are a masterclass in classic breakbeat science, delivering the foundational UK sound with panache that sets these weapons far apart from the rest of the pack.

  1. Anybody From London (5:50)
  2. The Seeker (5:54)
  3. OHM Trax (6:29)
  4. Never As Good (7:48)
Review: With its' hilarious, capitol-baiting MC vocal sample (lifted, it seems from an obscure early '90s rave recording), Borai's "Anybody From London" has already achieved anthem status in Bristol. It's a perfect example of contemporary, hardcore-influenced house, with spine-tingling chords riding a killer bassline and a pitched-down break peppered with classic jungle style drum edits. There's much to enjoy elsewhere on the double-pack, too, from the jungle-techno stomp of "The Seeeker" and the woozy, hip-house style roll of "OHM Trax", to the heady hardcore revivalism of the wide-eyed, "At Les"-biting "Never As Good". It's something of a departure from Borai - arguably best known for his deep house and techno outings - but undoubtedly his strongest release to date.

  3. Cold Rushing (6:44)
  4. Ruff (5:27)
Review: Aside from being a killer producer of retro-futurist hardcore and revivalist jungle, Borai also happens to be Bristol's most dapper man (few others can rock a vintage 1980s McLaren formula one leather jacket with the same panache). Here he returns to London label Them with a quartet of suitably heavyweight dancefloor workouts. The producer's love of rave-era tape pack vocal samples resurfaces on the bustling, sub-heavy madness of 14- BPM jungle A-side cuts "Dub Fi Dub" and the fizzing "Teefa". On the flip, the sometime Hotline Recordings artist changes tack, first serving up a throbbing chunk of acid techno insanity before diving headfirst into weighty but party-starting dubstep pastures on killer closer "Ruff".

Deep House
  1. On The Horizon (7:30)
  2. Dark Of The Sun (6:28)
  3. Wetware (6:32)
Review: Formerly Halo Cyan Records, Halocyan was rebranded and renamed in 2014. It is a sublabel of Phthalo, launched by LA musician Dimitri Fergadis. It's had some great artists appear recently in the form of Paul Woolford, Extrawelt and of course the legendary Dave Angel - who presented the last two releases as part of the Incoming series. Next up is Bristol's Borai, who has had releases on top local labels like BRSTL and Happy Skull in addition to internationals Tasteful Nudes and Retrofit. Dark Of The Sun features a variety of moods that are all expertly executed for whatever the occasion. From the evocative opening track "On The Horizon" which has a Detroit hi-tech soul type of vibe which we really enjoyed. The title track is more straight ahead with its Berlin style warehouse stomp, complimented by suspense filled dub chords, pounding drums and hypnotic pads. Finally "Wetware" takes it down a notch or two on this retro-flavoured deep tech house number - which is perfect to play just before the lights come on.

  1. Borai - "The Rejection"
  2. Deep88 - "Works"
  3. Oliver Deutschmann - "Straight Up My All"
  4. Freestyle Man - "Give It To Me"
Review: It's been a while since we heard anything from Bristol's best dressed chicken in town Borai, so it's great to see him leading the way on this second edition of the Jackoff Beats series from Berlin label Jackoff Records. Indeed this is Boris English's second contribution to the series, having appeared on last year's inaugural 12" alongside Iron Curtis and Oli Deutschmann. "The Rejection" demonstrate's Borai's lost none of his production verve for emotionally loaded house music and sets a high bar for what follows. Deep88 rolls deep on a lo fi filtered disco flex with the excellent "Works" whilst Oliver Deutchsmann also maintains his 100% Jackoff Beats appearance record with the stripped down acid burner "Straight Up My All". A welcoming titular vocal hook is the key element around which the Freestyle Man lays down a classic dusty house groove on the closing "Give It To Me".

Make Me/No Good (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: HILEVRECS 002. Rel: 23 Apr 19
Breakbeat
  1. Make Me (5:01)
  2. No Good (4:15)
Review: Big tune alert! Ever since Borai and Denham Audio joined forces to self-release the rave-minded "Club Glow Vol 1" cassette last summer, hype has been growing around "Make Me". The track has been getting spins from big name DJs close to the duo ever since, with much fevered speculation online as to whether it would ever get a single release. Happily, the pair has obliged. For those who've yet to succumb to its full-throttle charms, "Make Me" is a joyous early '90s rave throwback rich in period vocal samples, bouncy piano stabs, sweaty breakbeats and the kind of sub-bass that regular sends crowds crazy. Flipside "No Good", a fresh jam from the retro-futurist duo, is similarly smiling, giddy and bass-heavy. Pass the Vicks - it's time to party!

  3. Hermans & Mr Ho - "Late Night Scuttla (Hard Drizzle)" (5:32)
  4. October & Borai - "So Many Days" (8:04)
Review: The always on-the-money Run Out Run label boomerangs itself back onto our shelves with their seventh release, this time a split effort from a pool of techno juggernauts form around the globe. Label boss Tom Dicicco drops a heavy-loaded master blaster in "16 Reels" - fierce sonics and filtered beats sprawling from every angle - and TX Connect aka Dallas-based producer Gavin Guthrie delivers his usual slice-n-dice approach thanks to an artillery of gritty drum machine beats and bubbly, rolling melodies on "Clouds Like Leopards". On the B-side, there's some Chicago ghetto action from Hermans and Mr Ho on "Late Night Scuttla (Hard Dizzle)", and Bristol's October and Borai team up to make the deep, mystical and dubby sway of "So Many Days".

  1. Sticky Fingers
  2. Left Out (vinyl version)
Review: Arriving in limited quantities and with little chance of a digital release, the newly minted BRSTL label launches in fine style. Central to the label is a mission statement to deliver the best house and techno moments Bristol's constantly bubbling music scene has to offer, something that is expertly executed here in dual fashion by October and Borai. There's undeniable warmth to the rich melodics that swell as lead track "Sticky Fingers" progresses which clearly references the Windy City, though the snapping, upright percussive idiosyncrasies are undoubtedly the work of the West Country. "Left Out" is far more claustrophobic, with steam constantly building amidst the off kilter syncopated flex - a drunken swagger of a groove finally emerging as the swampy bass takes effect.

  1. Level Abstain
  2. Vital Ital Rub
Review: While October may be the more highly regarded producer, it's clear that the Bristolian has opened the door to new levels of production possibilities since he started working with Borai. A sound that was first hinted at on the debut BRSTL release late last year is further contextualised with an equally good (and vinyl only) release on the fledgling Never Learnt label. Evocative of what's happening in Bristol right now, "Level Abstain" approaches the house template from that uniquely West Country angle, smudging out the lower recesses of a track that is dipped in infinity. Flipside, the duo reaches further into the audio murk on "Vital Ital Rub" which is markedly more restrained in approach and shows October and Borai fully capable of setting a particular mood.

Deep House
  1. I Didn't Mean To
  2. Palmarosa
Review: As their slew of recent singles continues, October and Borai emerge on Applepips with yet more essential tackle for broadminded dancefloors. "I Didn't Mean To" finds itself in a compromising position between broken rhythmic trysts and technoid propulsion, all the while off set by achingly beautiful, twinkling pads. It's still a strong floor track, but in a truly hypnotic and uplifting way. "Palmarosa" meanwhile is honed for maximum body response, with a firm undercarriage and sassy saxophone flairs perfect for those feverish moments deep in the heat of the night. Either way you'll find it hard to prise this one out of your bag.

  1. Necessary Force (7:42)
  2. Nine Tomorrows (6:42)
Review: Boris 'Borai' English has been collaborating with Julian Smith over the past five years, and this record follows on from their Head 4 Phuture record on Brstl last year. The title track is similar to the sound that prevailed on October's debut album; a wiry, insistent rhythm, shot through with an undercurrent of moody bass, provides a cushion for a vocal loop that exudes the paranoia of vintage industrial/ebm acts like Nitzer Ebb. Thundering tribal drums add weight to the track's swagger. "Nine Tomorrows" is a different proposition; more restrained and less oppressive-sounding, at the heart of its understated, metallic rhythm is a melody so frosty and icy, it'll cool even the warmest heart.
