Rob Roar’s Ibiza-based Phonetic imprint has turned its hand to myriad sounds over the past decade or so, with their penchant for off-kilter sounds and contrasting genres one that’s pretty much as eclectic as it comes in electronic music. Their most recent outing sees them turn their hand to house-leaning tropes thanks to Stereojuice, a duo who – on this showing at least – no exactly how to walk the tightrope between vintage, nuanced tones and more modern-day aesthetics.

‘He’s Alright’ is the release in question, and while it’s already tasted success on the floors in Ibiza and on Beatport’s hallowed house music chart, there’s more to it than simply the sort of big-room goodness that those accolades suggest. Of course, it’s not without such such appeal either, with Jazmina’s sultry vocals playing a particularly pertinent role. The latter plays a similar role as Alana did to old MK records of old, and when the bumping bassline ultimately finds its feet, the listener is practically dragged in the direction of the dancefloor. The ‘Dub Mix’ compliments matters with a more vaguely more sprightly and bellowing interpretation, closing off matters amongst a cloud of twisted, empahtic house music goodness.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
