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. AÂ sonic trip that isÂ 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’veÂ uncovered from Japan to Iceland and many places in between.
Highlights include the murky, driving energies offered byÂ 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 onÂ “Blvd.”
All in all, this is a perfect way to celebrate this influential label’s 100th release.
