After successfully collaborating on Gerber’s acclaimed Fabric 64 compilation, Clarian North (1/2 of Footprintz) called upon the Israeli producer to join him on “Claire” — one of six tracks from his forthcoming Chemical Gardens EP out on Visionquest later this month. “Claire” illuminates the true emotion that can be found in good Deep/Tech House, taking the listener on a poignant journey throughout all seven minutes. A very fitting track for this lovers’ holiday…

Since it’s inception in 2010, Detroit label, Visionquest, has made waves throughout the underground dance community. Founded by the supergroup consisting of Seth Troxler (biggup on getting the #1 spot on the RA Poll today), Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss, and Shaun Reeves, the independent imprint has played home to EPs from some of the best names in Deep/Tech House including Benoit & Sergio, Guy Gerber, Tale of Us, and more, but last month saw the first album release as a collaboration between VQ’s Ryan Crosson and Cadenza‘s Cesar Merveille.

In my chat with Crosson about the DRM project, he talks about how the partnership came about, struggling through 27 versions of one song on the album, and how its good to be unrestrained in the studio… Continue Reading

What’s good dirty dancers? It’s Friday, and there are few better ways to soundtrack your weekend than with this latest helping of The Dirt! Troy Kurtz & Sweet FA have been hard at work, handpicking a few of their favorite tunes of the moment, so without further ado, we’re happy to present The Dirt #48…

Casino Times – That’s The Truth (Original Mix)
Beautiful slow-burning house from a duo to watch closely in the coming months. This is a rework of the De La Soul and Chaka Khan track ‘All Good’. Vibes!

Mercury – Sweetness (Original Mix) √+
Giving the nod to old school house with their combination of electronic piano and soulful vocal stabs, Mercury‘s new Sweetness release is an absolute gem. Can highly recommend the full EP, which also features a stellar remix from Catz N’ Dogz.

Groove Armada – RJ’s Theme (Original Mix) √+
Progressive tech-house from Groove Armada‘s recent Red Light project. The synth build is pretty much identical to Danny Daze‘s summer smash ‘Fall Away From Love’ which is maybe why I dig it so much.

Jack Dixon – Clear (Original Mix)
Awesome piece of uptempo house music from Londoner Jack Dixon. The percussion on this track is so crisp. Looking forward to checking out his Knowledge EP which drops next week on Losing Suki.

Eliphino – More Than Me by somethinksounds
Set for release on Halloween via Somethinksounds, Eliphino‘s new track ‘More Than Me’ has been on repeat for the past couple weeks. The versatile London-based producer has already had a release on Gilles Peterson‘s Brownswood imprint, and he’s bound to kick up a great deal more heat with this tune when it finally drops.

Double 99 – RIP Groove √+
90s UK garage that obliterates a dancefloor. I saw Nic Fanciulli drop this at Sensation London in August and the place went nuts for it.

• M83 – Run Into Flowers

The new M83 album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming was officially released earlier this week, and it sits comfortably atop the contenders for album of the year. This track is from one of Anthony Gonzalez’s earlier albums, and might be one of my favorite songs of all time.

• ASAP Rocky – Wassup
NY drug dealer turned man rapper ASAP Rocky is the truth. He’s got a  promethazine infused swagger, and it slow-grinds all over this Clams Casino beat (same guy who produced the mesmerizing I’m God.)

• Bombay Bicycle Club – Lights Out  Words Gone (Dark Sky Remix)
Dark Sky is back again with an extremely emotional mix of Bombay Bicycle Club. Never one to disappoint, a hypnotically deep groove bounces around crooning vocals. Buy the track here.

• 11:11 – Tourist Trap (Jamie Jones Remix)

If you haven’t heard, the consummate businessman that is one Sean Combs AKA genius has teamed up with Guy Gerber to form the 11:11 project. Even though it sounds a bit kooky, the likes of Jamie Jones, Soul Clap, and Renaissance Man have already been on the remix cartel.

• Solomun & Stimming – See You Everyday
I’ve been slamming this one in a lot of sets lately. I really dig the rain/thunder samples. Well played.

• Salem – Sick

I’ll leave you with some witch†haus to get you in the mood for Halloween. And a birdy told me there is a /// Halloween mix dropping sooner than you can say, “OMG LOOK AT WHAT THAT GIRL IS WEARING I CAN SEE HER EVERYTHING!”
