The latest edition of Rinse FM’s mix CD series comes from Mark Radford.

Radford hasn’t been on Rinse as long as some contributors to the series (he started his Saturday evening slot in April 2011), but he’s made a name for himself in London’s post-Funky (or at least, post-The Summer of Funky, 2008) landscape playing a deeper, techier, and altogether more European selection of house music. The sort of thing that’s been going for years, basically, but in the last two years seems to have emerged as the house music de jour for many of the capital’s clubbers.

Rinse: 18 may feature a fair few house and techno staples (Steve Bug, Alex Niggeman, John Tejada), but there’s plenty of material from up-and-coming UK names (James What, No Artificial Colours), and as easy as it is to comment that this music’s nothing new, Radford’s radio shows do have a habit of making it work.

Rinse Recordings will release Rinse: 18 on March 5.
