hot creations launch the new paradise on earth dj mix series with the first installment coming as a mexico special from paradise residents and label regulars nathan barato and patrick topping. here is the double lp vinyl version of the album containing some classic tracks from ian pooley, green velvet, italojohnson and redshape.
after nearly a year of studio silence, and 9 releases under their belt the painfully anonymous dj / production trio italojohnson finally reveal that they are in fact the ghostbusters. to mark the anniversary of their 10th release they ve decided to amp up their usual white labels to black. who you gonna call?
the ep offers up three jacking cuts of the most pure, organic, raw, dusty, deep underground house music to date. what else could you expect from three germans who were weaned on a steady diet of detroit and chicago classics from the day they were born. after receiving an 808 for his 10th birthday, one member of the faceless trio was rumoured to have ghostwritten basslines for some of technos finest during the early 1990s.
italojohnson truly are * too deep underground.*
RIDE WITH YOU (ITALOJOHNSON / MIKE DEHNERT REMIXES)
12" Vinyl UK30.01.14
hotflushs first release of 2014 introduces a handful of new faces to label. the single, a moody house slow-burner titled ride with you, comes from uk duo the white lamp, a collaboration between stalwart london producer darren emerson and vocalist peter josef.
vinyl only release !!
long standing tsuba artist spencer parker makes his limited debut complete with the first ever remix from italojohnson. the original mix has a deep detroit house flavour and the remix is a pure bomb as you would expect from the super hot italojohnson. this vinyl only release is a marriage made in heaven for vinyl junkies!
keeping with tradition, the second italojohnson release of 2012 once again presents itself in the likeliness of a 12inch wax with three tracks. the one-track mind repeats the same funk-nationalistic character of italojohnson and once more shows its simplicity. this tune comes to its rite where it is loud and dirty but even headz sitting at home will be able to feel the sun rise. boom shakalaka. the double-track side has some surprises in store for its listeners. for those in the know, the first track is also known as >bootytrack<. this track always pushes the low end to the limit and under the right circumstances guarantees some hip swing. number two may sound familiar, but even if you dont know its rootz, youll still be down with each other
italojohnsons first release in 2012 breaks the standards of the classic 12 inch model with two tracks representing a double a-side on a 10-inch vinyl. this is the first release that is branded with the italiojohnson logo so grab it while its hot because stickered copies are limited to 500 vinyl.the stamped side blows you away with a solid bassline powerful enough to light your ass on fire. unique fx-sounds, an explicit arrangement and sharp drumming pull the track together.the flip side provides you with proper house music as the vigorous, repetitive vocal-stabs, a hells bells bass and the fearless 707 drums flow into italojohnsons trademark sound.any questions?
as the summer comes to a close, italojohnson releases its fourth release thereby urging party people to get in the dancing swing once again. on the long recorded side, you will find a progressive house track that can be hardly surpassed in any type in its directness. an unfussy arrangement, a straight oppressive subject and a low flying breakdown compose the a-stamped side. the sincerity of the first track of the flipside doesnt come short of any expectations. the concrete in-your-face-drumming, piano lessons and stabbing strings combined with the italojohnson charm becomes the (double a) aa-side. why? because italojohnson doesnt do b-sides. finally, the aa-2 track emotionally rounds up the release with italojohnsons trademark-sound in which all the brothers and sisters are invited to explore. make love!
italojohnson starts the new year punctual with his third stroke. this record will have something suitable on it for everyone out there. without batting an eyelid, its crosseyed and selfconfident, looking at three different floors at the same time: the a-side focuses on the chicago house floor. it begins with a recognizable toolish sound. slowely but surely the theme of the track opens – the track works through a breakdown, a classic drum roll sneaks in and jack grabs again. the b1 provides an unusual turn on the third italojohnson production. theres no space for compromises here. the track stomps on the steam engine warehouse floor. a flowing acid hookline is settled in the industrial drumline and gives the track its meaning. the second track on the flipside completes the whole package and is destined for the late night hours. thats everything there is to say about this track – the strength and emotion can only be experienced by listening first hand. love, peace and happiness
italojohnson greets the dance floor with his first vinyl release embodying three functional tracks appropriate for any party mood.
the a-sides systematic drumming maliciously rumbles through the prime time floor as the mellow waves begin to take form and surge into a hysterical tsunami of beats. an emotional sunrise paves the tracks finale.
a similar functional sound continues on b1 and soon after, exposes itself as a percussive chicago house track as the 707, 727 and abyssal bassline protest against loungy house.
the dubbier interpretation of the italojohnson concept can be found in the final track on b2. the 808-thunderstorms and melancholic pads have lived through more than one summer, yet have only triumphed through charm and optimism.
spencer parker readies the third and final remix package of different shapes and sizes this april featuring remixes from radio slave, italojohnson and nic fanciulli. concluding the series featuring dj deep, fett burger, rising sun, tijana t, setaoc mass and akirahawks, ep03 includes three artists that have long been close to spencer parker. radio slave has released parker s music via rekids for over a decade, whilst nic fanciulli s saved has hosted multiple records, like parker s debut album. spencer s relationship with italojohnson also stretches years including the trio s first remix (a spencer parker release on tsuba) and appearances at work them records showcases. radio slave s remix of information deviation is an ominous techno cut complete with eerie atmospherics, fuzzy melodies and rattling hats whilst a robotic vocal operates on top. italojohnson then remodel size:yes to generate a moody house number featuring cosmic synths and twisted effects, leading into nic fanciulli s rumbling rendition of riff shapes .
the long established and critically acclaimed dj-kicks series kicks off 2017 with suitably accomplished dj, producer, vocalist and instrumentalist matthew dear at the helm. a man of many musical hats, texas born, detroit raised dear has a wide reaching discography that takes in face melting techno as jabberjaw, dark avant-pop under his own name and intricate minimal as audion. often with a gothic slant and full of curiousness, his pensive but playful music is an intoxicating distillation of many different influences, often with his own stylised vocals at the centre
