Over the past decade and beyond, the recent signee on Steve Angello’s underground-leaning X label, Trent Cantrelle, has been building a reputation not only as an artist with style and integrity, but also as an impresario with his popular parties such as his “Sounds Like” series. He follows up on his latest single, “Born” with Stacy Barthe, to bring us an exclusive Marquee Minimix featuring half an hour of house music handpicked with sophisticated taste. Listen/download the mix below.
Additionally, we were able to chat with Trent about releases on X, how he utilizes his parties artistically, his thoughts on losing the term “deep house,” and more. Check out the interview after the jump and if you’re in NY, see him live this Friday at Marquee NY.
The Brooklynites, Sam Walker & Gavin Royce, have been taking the deep house world by storm with their distinctive productions and groovy sets. In celebration of their hometown gig at Marquee NY this Friday, they’ve given us the exclusive on an outstanding mix featuring selections from Waze & Odyssey, Maya Jane Coles, Breach, and Bonobo, amongst others. Additionally, we had a quick chat with them to discuss a bit about their background, the Brooklyn scene, what fans can expect from their set this Friday, and more. Listen/download the mix below, and find the tracklist, along with the Q&A, after the jump.

Last Friday I headed back to the west side to the infamous Marquee New York. With help from Sleepy & Boo, the lineups for Marquee’s “underground” night on Fridays have only gotten increasingly better since it’s opening in January and last week was no exception. The Dirtybird chief, Claude VonStroke was in the house and there was no way I could miss those tech-funk vibes. Catch my review after the jump!
Welcome to Winter NYC! With temperatures down to the single digits I hope ya’ll are staying warm! For me, even a snowstorm won’t keep me away from this weekend line-up!
