A nice deep house and Chicago house start to the show this week, with some new cuts from Maya Jane Coles, Daniel Ray, Gene Hunt and Gerd, plus the beautiful “Ever Or Not” from the John Roberts album “Glass Eights”. The pace picks up a bit in the second half of the show, with some uplifting and techy vibes from the likes of Future Beat Alliance, Alexander Robotnik and Jay Tripwire. The Mafia Sauce Killers bring the acid.
Just recently I was pleased to come across the amazing Sauroid record label, with a catalogue that consists of some superb electro, italo and acid house presented with gorgeous golden age sci-fi covers. Antoni Maiovvi‘s “Variable Man” came out on Sauroid’s fourth release in April and is a shimmering nu disco track with hyperactive 80’s style synths and invigorating italo pheromones. Will be keeping a close eye on them in the future.
One of my faves this week is the stunning new release by Murphy Jax in the Clone Jack For Daze series. The Orgue Electronique take on “Kevin Spacey” is a breezy, new school acid house track with bold pianos, crisp percs, and a rolling bassline. But pick of the week comes from the new “Beat The Street EP” by Italian producer Simoncino on Mathematics records. “Target” and “Jungle Dream” come straight out of a platonic realm of deep, 80s Chicago house – sounding like timeless archetypes of house music, with distinctive bassline stabs, warm synths and classic drumkits. Both the Murphy Jax and Simoncino releases are like time travel of the best kind, back to a wave of creativity and imagination that was sparked 20 odd years ago and is still fruitful today.
Thanks to everyone who came along to the Deep House Cafe in Second Life or tuned in on Future Music radio for the live broadcast. Great to see you all there, plus it was nice of Totoro, Noh-Face and Giraffe to join us and get down to the music! Back with more this Wednesday!
