Surely one of the finest, long standing imprints that’s come out of Europe is the French power house, Versatile Records. It releases absolute gold and style wise it pretty much touches on everything I love in modern electronics. Here are just a few favourites from their vast back catalogue.

Label owner DJ Gilb’R & DJ Sotofett joined forces on Foliage and show how to make jazz flecked conga house that doesn’t sound shit.

I:Cube is a VR mainstay, this could have so easily been a top five from him alone.

Here he is, getting all hip house on our asses.

This track does very little but at the same time does everything, hypnotic and timeless it’s exactly the kind of thing I look for in a house record and rarely leaves my record bag.

You can’t beat a bit of acid, especially on the Arabic tip.

Joakim is a firm BB favourite, everything he does is gold. He can’t be placed in a nice little genre specific box and we love him for it. A vintage Joakim number here, first heard on an Ivan Smagghe mix many moons ago and still sounding fresh to these ears.
