Dirt Crew Recordings, the bastion of German deep house, hit a milestone this year with their 100th release and the latest in the “Deep Love” compilation series. Set to drop across a double vinyl on September 12th, this impressive VA comp houses 11, all exclusive tracks from new and old favourites including Detroit Swindle, Nachtbraker, The Revenge and Felix Leifur. A sonic trip that is not to be taken lightly, the Dirt Crew family invite to to come along through deep and hazy corridors of jazz, disco and funk infused house. This diverse and plentiful outing includes work outs for your dance floor alongside intergalactic analogue synth laden voyages, originating from artists they’ve uncovered from Japan to Iceland and many places in between.

Highlights include the murky, driving energies offered by Rose Records’ cohorts, M.ono & Luvless, on their contribution, “Whopa.” Piano stabs and chirpy vocal snips punctuate washy pads and shimmering percussion while a relentless, rolling bassline carries us through the duration. Secret Reels affiliate, Harry Wolfman, brings a taste of the sublime with “Rainbow Set” and it’s smooth chords and wonky synth riffs. The Revenge hypnotize us with the acidic “Narrow Hatch,” while Good Guy Mikesh plunges 10,000 leagues below with the ultra-deep and bouncy, “Boiling.” Last but not least, Huerta steals the show with an uplifting blast of pure dance floor euphoria on “Blvd.”

All in all, this is a perfect way to celebrate this influential label’s 100th release.

YDNA – Safari

Jul 8 2015

Exploited Ghetto, the Berlin based sub-label of the paramount house  imprint, Exploited, discovers newcomer, YDNA and his debut offering, “Safari.” This tribal work-out offers a funky, shuffling beat, muted chords and an elephantine synth riff that is truly epic. Layer on some ominous, rain-storm samples and savannah sounds and you’re transported to the Serengeti for a lush ride through the open range.

Recently released on German house label, sinnmusik, Georgi Barrel‘s ‘Late Night Foray’ is a jazzy, loopy number that harkens back to simpler times when all the world was not one massive drop after the other. With support from the likes of Laurent Garnier, MANIK and Tensnake it would appear that I’m not the only one that has taken notice.

Buy the 12″ here.
