Responsible for bringing us some of the most diverse club gems over the past couple of years, Michael Woods’ Diffused Music imprint are now jumping on the bandwagon of Starkillers and Dmitry KO, adding their latest effort, titled ‘Light It Up’, to their already prestigious back catalogue. Featuring a brilliantly distorted lead and dominant baselines, this 15th instalment on Diffused after the label’s re-launch back in late 2010 is further testament to Woods’ remarkable A&R talents.
