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.

Visionquest not only makes up the supergroup of Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, and Ryan Crosson, but it’s also a home to sounds that are supported by the foursome, like the new single from Canadian duo and VQ partypals, FOOTPRINTZ. “Dangers of the Mouth” is the first single from their forthcoming debut album, and Visionquest has started them off with a bang as they commission fellow Montrealean and Turbo mastermind, Tiga, for an uptempo rework that brings the dark, synthpop original off of its knees and into dancefloor territory.
