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!
a classic house track gets a re-release and an extra special edit from bass culture owner d julz. the edit of chicago groover * dont let love pass you by* from master c & j has been a staple of d julz sets for quite some time now. over time more and more people have asked about the track and he duly responded to demand by not only clearing his rework for release, but also signing up the original to be reissued via his label. so we have the original version, which oozes chi-town sleaze, remastered for 2016 together with the superb edit by the man himself, d’julz. need we say anymore?

the latest bass culture presents an exciting partnership between label boss d julz and his long time friend cassy, resulting in three tracks of the kind of refined house music that you would naturally expect from two well-travelled djs. her global status as a dj ensures cassy is never far from the minds of switched-on house heads, but its a rare treat to enjoy her own productions. when she appears on record she makes it count, and its no different here as her and djulz tap into what makes them tick as djs and dancers alike

steve bug - innovator, minimal dance connoisseur, tech house master - though he s been given many prestigious titles, if theres one quality that can be best attributed to steve bug, it would be modesty. its a trait that has followed him throughout his illustrious career, from his early days as a child building guitars out of cardboard, to his early lessons in percussion at school to his beginnings as a mixtape dj to his first productions. despite the fact that hes now largely regarded as one of the founding fathers of minimal - creating his >da minimal funk< compilation over 10 years ago - and one of the most sought-after 4/4 djs booked today, bug remains truly humble when reflecting on the majestic rise from his beginnings as a dancefloor-dwelling clubber in bremen, germany to ruling his renowned dessous/poker flat empire in berlin.
