re-igniting the dancefloors twenty years after its original release. steve bug refreshes this classic chez damier production originally from 1992. can you feel it is one of those classic new york / chicago house jams that just defines a moment in dance music history. dessous label boss steve bug arranges two special mixes that celebrate and re-juvinate this very special record. steves straight up remix maintains the classic vibes with a sensitive 90s themed rework that calls upon clean. fresh drums and smooth sub bass as its initial building blocks. the instantly recognisable vocal is included. as is the hey-day chord vibes and glorious us house melodies. simply deadly in the right moments. a re-dub version is also included that spaces things out and opens up the strings in a breezy and superbly mixed club tool. a new york dub has also been included. dug out from the chez damier vaults and re-mastered for 2012 - highly prized vibes on this and his trademark. pushing. swinging drums keep us going on and on!
a triple lp entitled * from joy * by kyle hall. the title is derived from the idea of finding a way to live life in a state of presence. detaching oneself from the mental. self imposed narratives echoed by society s traditions and judgements. we as people tend to be at our most honest and present in our childhood. so in some ways from joy serves as a mechanism and reminder to return to one s youthful energetic state. the 8- track album. all produced before 2010. is a homage to where kyle lived at the time in his father s basement on the westside of detroit on joy rd.

vinalog’s new ep on relative delivers raging club music with 4 cuts balancing the uk and berlin sound with a masterful touch. the two mixes of “flashback” on the a side provide raw. nasty house with a punchy groove and luscious vocal samples. b side sees two variations of the same motif: “recall 97” has strong uk bass heavy influences with an acid touch and spanish-mumbling vocals. while “redub 97” is a more stripped down version of the latter able to deliver for the dance floor with a more broken-beat rhythmic pattern.
