played by ricardo villalobos - its time for the next release on long-running paris label bass culture and owner d julz has invited a crack team of talented individuals to deliver the magic to this latest instalment in the label s release schedule. this extra special remix package features contributions from the legendary dj skull, along with sebo k, henrik bergqvist and romanian mp. the bossman s own 2015 ep houdini is the subject of this exquisite bunch of reworks, giving the whole release a fresh lick of paint from a group of artists handpicked by d julz to get to work on his productions. the title track houdini is first in line, with the mighty dj skull on remix duty. the chi-town legend has been a favourite of d julz since the early nineties when he was releasing on labels such as djax-up-beats. the funk-imbued workout he creates from the original production is superb and a testament to someone who has been involved in music for three decades and still going strong. keeping dj skulls remix company on the a-side is sebo k with his take on serendipity. following on from his outstanding ep brock wild, sebo returns to bass culture with another taught dance floor cut, full of swing and groove, pushed along with a strong, insistent energy. on the flipside the deep sultry flavours continue to bubble up. two more dynamic artists bring their unique touch to bass culture and the first is the romanian wonderkid mp (mihai popescu), who has previously released on the sub-label bass culture limited. his reinterpretation of serendipity is deep, nuanced and quirky with a simmering atmosphere throughout.last but certainly not least is the swedish maestro henrik bergqvist. waiting 4 visa gets a kick in its step, with mysterious cosmic fx layered over a mesmerising bassline and a collection of bleeps and chirps that really bring the remix to life. and there it is, four superb new mixes of three great tracks... enjoy!
politics of dancing records celebrate their 3rd anniversary with two vinyl only releases and a digital compilation of unreleased tracks from a pretty impressive line up of confirmed and up and coming producers. the first part to be released sets the pace with four deep house cuts from janeret, d julz, djebali and politics of dancing. janeret s first light is a deep, bass heavy number, with spacy stabs, cut for serious peak time action. d julz offers us a deep tech house killer with sharp stabs and a dubby bass, a timeless one for dancefloors. djebali delivers a fat bumpy deep house tune with his very distinctive stylish and groovy touch, and label bosses politics of dancing drops a deep tracky house piece, with swinging dirty underground vocals and a heavy rolling bassline. this is paris house music firing!

for the first circus company record of 2013, our dear old friend julien veniel returns once more to the fold to deliver an ep polished with a cosmic allure that continues our trajectory into the outer realms of house and techno possibilities.
since 2000, d julz produced and released his tracks on labels such as dessous, ovum, brique rouge, se rial, 20/20 vision, paper, music for freaks and end recordings, and we are happy to present his latest tracks on poker flat. >runny< is a great euphonious, techy and percussive track around an alienated violin sound. the remix has been contributed by dan berkson and james what, who released already their >cantina< ep (pfr77) on poker flat. their mix comes in the typical berkson and what sound with warmer keyboard sounds and a groovy bassline. >sign< on b2 is a deep, but pushing tech-house tune with a great build-up. super-cool ep!
