Review: The latest Hands Off joint features three artists making waves in intriguing corners of the deep house firmament. Desos opens up the A side with the dreamy groove of "Dubs", before Space Age lays down the classic, Mr Fingers-flavoured haze of "Sunday Rain". Desos returns on the flip with another subtle yet punchy cut, keeping the melodies submerged and sublime on "Jaaa" before Common Mode takes things in a distinctly dubby direction with "Beauty Queens".

Review: Legendary edit master Dr. Packer digs deeper for part three of his "Different Strokes" series and churns out four more tasteful reworks of soul, house and disco classics. His take on The MuthaFunkaz's "I Don't Want You Anymore" is big in every department - bass, instrumentation and vocals as well as The Shapeshifters' "When Love Breaks Down" which gets reworked into a sumptuous vocal disco anthem. Flip over for "No Price" and "Boogie 2nite", both extended remixes that soar to the heavens with plenty of glorious strings and irresistible diva vocals. For lovers of all forms of disco, this is another vital release from scene leaders Packer and Glitterbox.
