proud yorkshire label hudd traxx have been putting out a reliable stream of quality deep house since 2005, with artists like dj sneak, rick wade, iron curtis, jay bliss and agnes just some of the many names to appear on the label. this 46th release features three debutants, while the fourth name, j.t. donaldson, spearheads the release with a wishy-washy, bassline driven deep house vocal cut -got myself together-. hudd traxx provides dusseldorf producer maximiljan with his first physical release with the track -son of a- which merges the linear 909 house style of norm talley with smooth chords and cheeky vocals similar to the now defunct swiss house duo azuni. but most interesting for the label on this release, it s the two new names in professional gigolo and tuneon that prove hudd traxx still know where to look when it comes to unearthing new and vibrant talent.
asiko disko - jt uses classic drum machines, sneaky acid lines and a mike dunn-esqe vocal to create this underground gem.
gaia - this track is sure to be a dj favorite. pounding tribal rhythms, hypnotic chants and an arrangement demanding to stay in the mix. this is a dj weapon.
asiko disko (dave aju remix) - having been a fan of dave aju for a while we thought it would be a hoot to get a remix from him. the result is a slow burning, shimmering remix that takes the original and shoots into space.
gaia (lance desardi remix) - our main man lance desardi turns in a electric remix. taking the original and delving into darker territory. new sonic creatures rotate around deep bass tones, hypnotic chants and new directions.
