Deep Love 100
Dirt Crew's 100th release falls on 2016's Deep Love compilation: 11 all exclusive original tracks from new and old favorites including Detroit Swindle, Nachtbraker, The Revenge and Felix Leifur. Take a sonic trip across deep and straight up house, infused with jazz, disco and funk. This diverse and plentiful outing includes workouts for the dance floor alongside intergalactic analog synth-laden voyages, originating from artists Dirt Crew have uncovered from Japan to Iceland and many places in between. A truly great way to celebrate their 100th release. Kicking things off are Detroit Swindle who bring a bomb to the compilation. "Tori Karaage" is a driving, sweat inducing, disco house, dance floor mover. Felix Leifur, the Icelandic prodigy, brings "Feels Like", a great broken beat like house cut laden with jangly percussion, warbling Rhodes and golden vocal hook. Harry Wolfman's "Rainbow Set" reduces the tempo slightly, keeping it deep and sexy. The sultry, smooth, disco touched vibe will have hips swaying in no time. Huerta, aka Steve Huerta, presents a deep and beautiful house cut, "BLVD". Pressing synths push and pull, lead lines glisten and straight to the point percussion drives it home. Jun Kamoda presents "I Know", casual melodies and positive energies on a transcendental landscape. Nachtbraker deliver an a-typical groove and fresh approach to deep house with "Busy Bee", heavily swung with licks of jazz piano, strummed strings and a soaring horn refrain. Marlon Hoffstadt takes a trip into analog territory with "Extra Slim Manufactured", a drum machine driven with a boisterous bass and soul to spare. Good Guy Mikesh brings "Boiling" to the mix, which increases in energy degree by degree, intensity rising until the heat can no longer be contained and the whole thing begins to bubble. The Revenge brings a belter showcasing his signature mixture of disco and house, the diva calls everyone to dance while thumping drums, a massive growling bass and tasty lead show the way. Ponty Mython is back with his trademark hustle and quirky sonic styling. A bouncing, intelligent and catchy groove rises with cries of "New York, New York" then gives way to a great break and spiraling arpeggio it. "Whopa" indeed, Leipzig's finest, M.ono & Luvless, come to the party with an uplifting piano house excursion plus a whole lot of energy.
