Bouyed by the last edition of their vinyl-only series, Fullbarr return for part four, and instantly trump Luke Solomon’s Ultrasound with a superb EP from Samaan, arguably the brightest star from their tight roster of production talent. The label may only be stepping into its third year, but Arthur Barr’s mighty work ethic has been admirably matched by his ear for distinctive four-four, and a wide-ranging releases from Matthias Vogt, Area, Jan Tenner and Gliesers have given the imprint a much-deserved ‘one-to-watch’ epithet coming into the new year.

Taking a tougher direction from his Detroit Memories EP late in 2011, the Belfast producer’s trio of tracks begins with Circle, ushered in with a growling, pulsing low pad that explodes into a percussive techno journey, complete with loopy, analogue bassline and classic synth notes piercing the mid-range, bathed in pads. Doors is punchier still, snares slapping over the almost sub-bass throb, while warped stabs percolate the middle of the track and pads flow through the breakdown to dream-like effect. Scottish techno stalwart Vince Watson weighs in with a classy remix of the title track, heading deeper with a loopy chord progression and layered melodies that show why he’s released on the likes of Planet E and F Comm. Closing out an outstanding EP is Commodore, a modern take on acid house, fusing Chicago with England in a warm, organic house trip.
