Send entries, marked "Horseplay Comp" to, or to, or leave a comment on this blog. All entries must contain, in addition to the answer, full contact details, and if you leave a comment on the blog include your email address too. Good luck!

Now the weekly installment of grooviness from the vaults.

Mushrooms (Salt City Orchestra Out There mix) - Marshall Jefferson vs Noosa Heads (Airtight)

I was reminded of this track while reviewing for Resident Advisor recently. I think it was Michal Ho's 'Take Away' that had a similar ambience, minus the hallucinogenic, laid-back lyrics. Salt City Orchestra raised this to more rarified heights with their remix. A deep house classic.

Golden Gate - Strange Attractor (Phono)

Jona Sharp aka Space Time Continuum aka Strange Attractor etc made this for the fledgeling Phono label, which was also Herbert's early home, releasing his first four classic eps. This is a nice techy deep house track, rather in keeping with this weeks output. Nice.

Quality of Life - Synchrojack (Ferox)

Sandcastle - Precession (Ferox)

Probably my favourite ever label. Russ Gabriel's seminal British techno label not only laid down a blueprint for all like-minded imprints but released music of consistently high quality for all techy occasions, from Ian O' Brien'slush soundscapes to Synchrojack's funky dancefloor doings (btw, where are Synchrojack now?) through to Steve O' Sullivan's minimal meanderings as Precession. More Steve O' Sullivan and Ferox to come in the future.

Burner - Floorplan (Drama)

Drama, was an M-Plant sub-label and any outlet for Robert Hood's output is fine by me. This is a loop-laden monster that does exactly what it says on the tin.
