Still having no luck with any of the derivatives of 18.04 that I've tried (Black Lab, LXLE, Ultimate, Voyager); either there's no sound on playback or they won't boot at all on my machine. I've gone back and installed an old version of Bodhi (4.2), which works fine, as does the latest version of Sabayon XFce (18.05).

Bunsen Labs have just released Helium RC1, the latest iteration of their fork of the well regarded CrunchBang distro.

I haven't installed it but it's working well as a live disk; the theme colours though, which range from grey through to blue and slate blue on to inky black, may be a bit too sombre and dramatic for some people's taste.

Here's a short video, provided by someone called Distro Tester on Youtube;
