having been rivals on the football pitch as teenagers, a chance encounter many years later - djing at an international windsurfing festival - cumulated in a back to back set that kicked off the italia90 collaboration. putting the footballing differences aside, italia90 grew out of a shared love of quality house music that was influenced greatly by glasgow s close relationship with chicago and institutions such as the sub club that brought these house heroes close to home.
well, it s definitely a great pleasure to reach soon the 100th release on morris audio! as kind of pre-celebration, we have this mighty compilation feat. new members timmy p and italia 90 (with more to come on morris audio) and homies jammhot and julien sandre. cool club cuts from a1 to b2 - 100 we are coming!
some more homegrown beats from elvis cassetta on morris audio! after his huge tune humney (morris audio 94), mr. cassetta is ready with another fine ep called longstreet claps. the title track is a deep and upbuilding house tune with cool vocals and a sexy bassline and shows elvis more subtle side of house. more of that please! the remix courtesy of up and coming london/leeds duo jammhot (madtech, roots of bloom, morris audio) taking a more stripped down approach, but as sexy as the original version. the b-side offers two straight club cuts, elvis cassetta style! and yes, elvis is his real name! enjoy!

morris audio welcomes italian hot shot kocleo! a skill full dj and producer, kocleo has been releasing his music on labels like definitive and recently on kerri chandlers madtech. the 4 tunes of his *float* ep are pure tech house. *float* starts with lush organ stabs with echoing vocals and strings, continuing with a bass led house cut and percussions. the deep and dubby *float* remix is by another up and coming versatile italian producer: whitesquare (skint, noir or defected).
after many uk based producers, its time again for some homeboys. elvis is a young dj and producer from zurich/switzerland and his humney ep is his first full release to date.humney is that catchy house tune with a touch of the 90s house sound, with a great bass line, sexy vocals (from the lovely choklate) and solid beats. the up and coming palace (hot haus records) adds a rougher vibe with his remix, but its still humney. the way is taking a deeper direction and shows that elvis cassetta is definitely a name to watch out for!
jammhot are a leeds and london-based production and dj partnership consisting of matt mason, jamie adams and akara etteh. having each separately pursued their own musical ventures, the three friends decided to draw on their differing backgrounds and influences to create their own heady blend of house that is rich in musicality and sense of adventure, yet aimed squarely towards the dancefloor.

>minor details< is another top production from up and coming uk producer jordan peak. with releases on quality labels like tsuba, robsoul, one records or area remote, this new release is another solid offering from the talented youngster. the original version of >three one two< is a percussive yet deep club track, whilst the julien sandre remix adds more pump with its rugged acid bassline. >got soul< is stripped down and raw, a trademark of jordan s work and thats what we like. nick lawsons remix takes the track in a smoother direction and completes this well balanced ep.
its number 77 here at morris audio and your weekly dose of house and techno! 4 hot producers giving you the beats and basslines you need. starting with swiss duo azuni, their raw chord is a special one. sadly, it will be their last track ever released, as the azuni project has come to an end and gianni and sven will work solo in the future. thank you guys! frenchman julien sandre is what you call a name to watch. his music has been released by labels like tsuba or diynamic and his future looks bright. the flipside offers us housemaster dj aakmael (uzuri, unxpozd entertainment) with some old schoolish beats for all those mixmasters out there.
