Early likes by Ben Westbeech, Solomun, Tensnake, Skream, Noir, Anja Schneider, DJ T, Pete Tong, Dj Sneak, Amine Edge, Round Table Knights, Trickski, Laidback Luke, Adriatique and more.

Exploited’s semi-regular “mini compilation” series continues, with Shir Khan collecting together a quintet of new cuts from the label’s extended roster. Michelle Owen kicks things off with the Inner City-ish hustle of “What Say You”, before Rey & Kjavik drop a wonky chunk of retro-futurist soulfulness in the shape of “No Choice”. Elsewhere, Urulu’s “It’s Over” delivers deepness and bass-propelled bump in equal measure, while Sishi Rosch’s “Movedatass” channels the spirit of Miami bass into a rave era chugger. Pavel Petrov’s “Violet View”, meanwhile, delivers a luscious fusion of intricate pianos, deep house atmospherics and nu-disco synths.
