Blood Groove & Kikis - Deep Grain Remixes (Spring Tube, 7 Mar)
An absolutely superb deep house offering from Spring Tube, with six mixes to choose from
Floyd Lavine feat Ruben John - Ms Cooper (Dogmatik, 7 Mar)
A deep and moody tech-soul affair, with remixes from Tom Demac and Nocturnal Sunshine
George Pearson - The Journey EP (Hype Muzik, 8 Mar)
George Pearson is apparently only in his early 20s... how he’s already making deep house/deep techno as good as this is beyond me
Inaya Day & Ralf Gum - Lose My Worries Pt 2 (GOGO Music, 7 Mar)
Featured this real-deal soulful house nugget on the TIWWD cloudcast a few months back, and now it’s back with no less than SEVEN new mixes from Trancemicsoul and Louis Benedetti. Just lush!
Jevne - Blue Label #1 (Eight Dimension, 8 Mar)
Following The System is a deep houser with disco overtones that comes on like early Faze Action, with remixes from Da Funk and Pete Dafeet. The ethno-Balearic funk of Velvet Eyes rounds out a very strong package.
Mioxam & Evan Burke - Tunnel Series #01 (Paradigma, 8 Mar)
The original is a proper tech-house/deep techno journey of a track, while Gary Beck’s remix adds a little big room drama.
Nadastrom - Theo (Dubsided, 8 Mar)
A one-sided release from Dubsided in a kind of jazzed-up tech-house vein… wouldn’t sound out of place on the likes of Leftroom or Freerange, which gives you an idea I guess.
Oliver Deutschmann - Waterfalls (Jack Off, 9 Mar)
The original of Waterfalls Are Good is a deep house/deep techno dancefloor cut, the Patrice Scott Sitrum mix is more of a late-night affair and then Do It The Classic Way Honey takes a trip to old-skool Chi-Town, making for a strong EP all round.
Seb Skalski - Disco Galaxy (Purple Music, 4 Mar)
Deep house and nu-disco flirt outrageously on the dancefloor.
Various - Light Of Day/Still Falling (Plush Recordings, 9 Mar)
Not had any D&B on here for while it seems, so here’s a nice little fem-vocalled liquid roller for ya… or rather two nice little fem-vocalled liquid rollers, seemingly by about 17 different artists. I’m confused, but they’re both rather nice, as I believe I’ve already made clear.
Various - Stealth Miami Sampler 2011 (Stealth, 8 Mar)
Six party-hearty big room tracks from the S-Man’s label, with Prok & Fitch’s remake of Todd & Jocelyn’s ‘Something Going On’ something of a surprise treat, actually.
