to keep people guessing, the fifth instalment from australia s best selling people must jam label takes things in a house direction with andy ash at the controls. andy has put through an immense ep of varying house flavours to satisfy an all tastes. the ep kicks of with the monster disco vibed hurricane fantasy track. a beautiful summery looper that s sure to keep the floors burning hot! move is one of andy s straight up house cuts - which he is becoming well known for, a deep sounding organ line carrying the track forward with stabs and a nice little vocal sample to boot. mixing things up a little on the flip, our good friend - ron basejam has provided a sublime adriatic excursion remix of move . ron takes the track to a totally different place with uplifting piano lines and orchestral string stabs building to a lovely crescendo. this remix should be earmarked for croatia 2015. finally dommah takes the ep into almost techno territory with building pads and solid beats resulting in a monster track for when the strobelight pulses and the heads go down!
das komplex or marcin to his parents has been steadily putting out incredible music for the last few years, building on an extremely well tailored collection of tracks they have started hitting all sorts of people s radar, no one more so than dj harvey who has been supporting his releases at some of his big shows. a1. under feet - whilst the people of australia are dancing, the people of poland are sleeping. or vice versa...starting off with some lcd fuelled vibes before a psychedelic phasing disco loop appears out of the smoke before twisting the track out in a slightly different direction. a2. w podwodnym pasniku - funky bass, filtered chords and a familiar vocal sample combine for this almost early french house sounding track circa 96. b1. bearded dwarf - very much sounding like prins thomas has been at work here, a big room scandinavian sounding house track (via poland!). big atmospherics, other-worldly vocal samples, lovely guitar snatches and driving piano with the addition of some tribal flute! b2. when - our favourite cut from the ep, cleverly using a herbie hancock sample and layering with disco sounds, vocals and a deep driving bass line to produce his trademark atmospheric, moody house sound. as always pressed on 180gm vinyl. please hunt down and destroy dance floors accordingly. keep sydney open
as always limited 180gm pressed vinyl
people must jam s ninth record is from one of our favourite djs and producers. a guy who has a ridiculously large back catalogue and in our opinion it is a crime that some of his records haven t received bigger recognition. a true master of house and hip hop music, kid sublime has been putting out amazing records since 2001. his own label dopeness galore literally does exactly what it says on the tin. even before we launched people must jam s label we wanted kid sublime to be a part of it. now finally we are stoked to present this ep... four serious cuts for four different vibed floors - look out! first up kid s homage to techno legend ben sims with bang like sims a driving deep techno groove. strong percussion, deep stabs and that unrelenting beat are going to ensure this one gets some love on the harder edged, heavier dance floors. we the people heads a little down the tribal route with some afro inspired percussion, haunting samples and that kalimba! dropping a really infectious riff before beautiful piano melodies drift in and out of the mix. wonderful stuff. the title track i like em dirty , we feel, is a lesson in proper deep house. classic sounding house beats, little guitar licks, deep stabs and the vocal sample combine for this perfect house cut. massive. the ep is rounded out with another cut in tribute to the legend that was kenny hawkes. another master of his craft - kenny sadly now passed on but his spirit is well and truly alive in this fitting tribute. one 4 kenny features strong percussion, low bass, deep stabs and slamming beats = cracking stuff

as the climate cools down in australia, temperatures are rising in europe and one of italys finest selectors has taken charge of people must jams eighth record. deja vu is a ep that has been a long time in the making. the result, we hope you will agree has been worth the wait. the title track kicks the ep off with a killer funk groove that riccio works into something we think mark e would be happy with. dyson jam is an original cut that channels some of his inner moodymann vibes - heads down, lights down, fader up... for the b side we asked the incredible payfone (who has been racking up a solid string of releases on golf channel) to remix dyson jam and he has created a perfect contrasting remix to the rest of the tracks of the ep. a deep journey that takes the original into sub-dawn territory. 4am vibes! the final cut of the ep mystical stretcher, is a late night jazzy funk number. again a little mahogani inspired...
we know this is a very special one! our seventh record is a track that has been burning up the people must jam dance floors for years in its previous form - al kent has created a disco dance floor beauty! an unreleased monster that first came to pmj s attention through the now legendary dj history website. this track has been retouched and re-mastered for its vinyl release nearly eight years after its inception, we are really proud that this is seeing the light of day and will finally be available for people to get their hands on. mastered at the carvery for added bump and shine. the record is a strictly limited 10inch heavyweight pressing
for the sixth release on people must jam, we headed to poland to find two very special guys that make up ptaki. ptaki have been making ripples around the world for their unique approach to putting together a record or two and having just recently dropped their album przelot those ripples have turned to waves. we are proud to announce their new record - antypody that will possibly turn those waves tidal! ptaki have delivered a wonderful varied ep with four different cuts. kicking off with the crazy uptempo hi-nrg disco cut milosc after which the record moves into the more gorgeous balearic territory of termy. this blew us all away when we first heard it. on the flip lotnik showcases some solid house roots before the ep ending on the porn sampling and rather brilliant radio roman. we are really stoked to have these boys on board for what we feel is going to be a very sought after record. 180g vinyl - strictly limited.
people must jam have an undisputed three for three on the score board, and it comes as no surprise that this serious second innings in the floor jammers va series is heading straight for the outfield too ! it s a truly international affair, as chicago disco don rahaan takes the lead with an irresistible uptempo jazz-funk rewire while uk producer andy ash is next up to the plate, rearranging and amping up a teddy p classic on the b, tokyo s beaten space probe takes on millie jackson s incendiary we got to hit it off (as recently hacked up by tom trago) bsp leaves in the best bits here as the powerhouse groove gets a respectful renovation. finally out in the sticks wrap it all up eighties fashion, as a slamming bassline led drum machine jam powers us to fourth base. strictly limited to 300 copies.
people must jam follow up the superb (and instant sell-out!) floor jammers vol. 1 with an absolute surefire jam from mark seven! my caesar is an irresistibly stripped back, melodic and atmospheric workout, consisting of those crisp mark seven rhythm tracks we so love on his parkway rhythm label and a spine-tingling soul vocal sample that pulls the whole thing together perfectly before a weighty & metallic detroit style low end takes us on home. in our humble opinion - it is a future classic!
people must jam is our sydney based warehouse party that we have been running for five years. the ethos behind the night initially, was to bring djs to australia that we wanted to hear but that had never been, and to put them on in intimate spaces and let them dig deep into their collections to play whatever they wanted. over the years we have brought rahaan, al kent, leo zero, mark seven, trusme, frank booker and more to australia for the first time to play. floor jammers vol. 1 is the first in a series of eps from some of our favourite past and future guests. the record is pressed on 180gm vinyl and strictly limited to 300 copies.
