Review: Colombian producer Felipe Gordon has been at the peak of his powers over the last few years, offering up countless EPs for the likes of Shall Not Fade, Royal Oak and Toy Tonics with no discernible dip in quality. Predictably, he's hit the mark once more on to be his first EP for French label Phonogramme. Gordon predictably hits the ground running with 'Who's Gonna Be', where sweat-soaked jazz drum fills and a vintage blues-soul vocal ride sturdy house beats and an infectious synth bassline, before opting for a more classic jazz-house sound on the deep and breezy 'Wait On You (Say Goodbye)'. The Colombian dives deeper style on the rolling, hazy and shuffling 'Keep Doing What You Love', while 'Phasing The Shit' is an expert exercise in spacey deep house lusciousness.

Sander's Journey - (5:58) 119 BPM
Do You Ever Miss Me? - (5:46) 123 BPM Hot
A Perfectly Calmed Felipe - (5:22) 120 BPM
Review: Felipe Gordon, a well-established figure on the Shall Not Fade label, makes a triumphant return with his seventh release, the "My Legs Are Numb" EP. This latest effort solidifies Gordon's reputation for delivering captivating house music with a unique flair. The EP opens with the title track, "My Legs Are Numb," where Gordon channels the deep house intensity reminiscent of Moodymann. The track's hypnotic grooves and rich textures set a high bar for what's to come. This deep and immersive soundscape is a testament to Gordon's ability to blend soulful elements with a dancefloor-ready vibe. "Sander's Journey" follows, offering a more laid-back, melodic experience. The track's serene and soothing atmosphere provides a beautiful contrast to the intensity of the opener, showcasing Gordon's versatility and melodic sensibilities. It's a perfect example of how he can create compelling narratives within his music. On "Do You Ever Miss Me?" Gordon injects extra drive into the drums, creating a more dynamic and energetic piece. The inclusion of a sultry saxophone adds a layer of sophistication and soul, making it a standout track that melts into the listener's consciousness with ease. The EP concludes with "A Perfectly Calmed Felipe," a jazzy, laid-back number that wraps up the journey on a serene note. The track's smooth rhythms and gentle melodies encapsulate Gordon's ability to infuse his music with a sense of calm and introspection.

Review: Felipe Gordon may be a confirmed label-hopper - in the last 12 months alone he's appeared on Clone Royal Oak, Toucan Sounds and Shall Not Fade - but he's also Mr Consistency. Predictably, this return to New York's Razor N Tape imprint is full to bursting with tried-and-tested dancefloor treats. Gordon is at his expressive, musically expansive best on 'Flutes of Gold', where vibraphone and synth solos stretch out over a lolloping deep house beat and warming electric piano chords, while 'Right Beside Me' is an infectious, low-slung, sample-heavy jazz-house delight. To round off the EP, Gordon smothers a luscious deep house groove with extended organ solos ('Homage to Bossa'), before taking us deep into space via the wild TB-303 motifs, pots-and-pans beats and shimmering chords of 'Acid Party at Santa Barbara'.

Travel Through Your Mind - (5:10) 124 BPM Hot
No Words (Byron The Aquarius dub mix) - (6:53) 119 BPM
No Words (Byron The Aquarius remix) - (5:20) 119 BPM
Review: Colombian house hero Felipe Gordon impressed (as usual) on his first outing on Clone's Royal Oak offshoot earlier in the year, so naturally hopes are high for this speedy sequel. Title track 'No Words' comes presented in three different forms: Gordon's ultra-deep, hypnotic original mix in which immersive pads and echoing organ snippets ride hushed machine drums and a raw TB-303 bassline, and two takes by Byron The Aquarius. The Atlanta producer first reaches for flutes, jammed-out boogie synths and looser house grooves on a fine 'Dub' mix, before presenting a shorter "remix" that gives more prominence to the wigged-out solos and fluttering flutes. 'Travel Through Your Mind', a more driving chunk of intergalactic deep house, completes a fine package.

It's Over (Drive My Car) - (6:21) 122 BPM
The Warehouse Beast (Glenn Underground Medusa mix) - (8:14) 121 BPM
Review: Just like his country's cyclists on the 'grand tours' of Europe, Felipe Gordon is climbing rapidly - though he has the summit of deep house in his sights, rather than a legendary French, Italian or Spanish mountain. His music is always assured, on-point and playable, and this three-tracker is no exception. Title track 'The Warehouse Beast' is, by his standards, pleasingly bold, with echoing spoken word snippets, classic-sounding stabs and fizzing electric piano riffs rising above a chunky bassline and loose-limbed deep house drums. Glenn Underground brilliantly re-imagines the track as an ever deeper, more musically detailed treat underpinned by a fantastic acid bassline, while bonus cut 'It's Over (Drive My Car)' is - somewhat surprisingly - a hazy, loved-up deep house take on The Beatles (really).

Review: Some two years on from the release of his acclaimed 'A Landscape Onomatopeya' album on Shall Not Fade, Felipe Gordon delivers another fabulous full-length excursion. In the time that has passed since that set hit stores, the Colombian has become an even better producer and musician, and that's naturally reflected in the quality of the cuts on offer. There are naturally deep house gems aplenty - see the huggable, jazz-flecked grooves of 'Departing', warming and classy vocal number 'Authentic Feeling' (featuring Bob The Egoist), the simmering, sun-soaked 'Treat You Gently' and peak-time ready strut of 'What We Gonna Do' - but also some fine trips into downtempo deliciousness ('Para Jos', the album-opening title track), raging acid house ('Take It, Acid Comes'), and even a dash of modular synth-wave eccentricity ('Easel of Suave').

Review: As part of Heist Recordings' ongoing 10th birthday celebrations, label founders Dam Swindle have decided to showcase some of the 'Hidden Gems' lurking in the imprint's back catalogue. It's a smart move, because there's plenty of high-grade dancefloor heat to be found across the 15 under-celebrated tracks on show. For proof, check the squelchy synth-bass, rushing piano riffs and classic house vibes of Fouk's 'Truffles', the gorgeous sci-fi techno melodiousness of Lord of the Samurai's 'Space Designer', the sun-splashed, jazz-flecked excellence of Crackazat's 'We Know', the low-slung, drum machine driven headiness of Adesse Versions' 'Push It Along' and the drowsy, soul-flecked late-night deepness pf Marina Trench and Sabrina Bellaouel's 'Wake Up'.

Review: Columbian producer Felipe Gordon joins forces with Belgian artist Krewcial in an exciting collaborative EP, immersing listeners into their shared sonic universe. Inspired by their mutual passion for cycling, this EP takes you on a thrilling journey through various textures and terrains, transcending into moments of luminosity while delving into deep atmospheres. The EP commences with "1972", a captivating opening that blends intricate percussion with a compelling, driving bassline, akin to conquering steep hills during a cycling expedition. Next up is "Dying", featuring uplifting choir vocals that infuse a gospel-inspired sensibility into the undeniably funky bassline. Following is "Answer", navigating between clean and satisfying kick drums, interspersed with sharp snares while Session Victim is offering a beautifully ethereal reinterpretation.

Review: Is there anything Felipe Gordon can't do? On his second Clone Royal Oak outing, Gordon eschews the acid flex of his previous EP for the Rotterdam imprint in favour of nods towards New Jersey garage and turn-of-the-90s NYC deep house. The headline attraction is 'For Martha', a bumpin' excursion rich in squelchy synth-bass, synthesiser horn sounds and deliciously dreamy chords. Kai Alce delivers two revisions: an even more old school-sounding revision blessed with his usual jazz-flecked instrumentation (the 'Remix') and an arguably even stronger 'ClubJazz' mix that could have come straight from Jovonn's archive of unreleased early '90s productions. Elsewhere, 'Waves' is a spacey, off-kilter, percussion-rich workout of the sort we'd usually associate with Ron Trent, and the hazy, all-action early morning delight that is 'The Beginning Of That Lonesome Road'.

Review: We've banged on about how much we enjoy Felipe Gordon's work before, noting that nearly everything he touches turns to musical gold. Predictably, his first outing on Clone's Royal Oak offshoot is superb, too. Opener 'Impresiones Acidas' is particularly impressive: a near-perfect fusion of hazy deep house, Tourist-era St Germain jazz-house and undulating, near psychedelic acid lines. It comes accompanied by a TB-303-free take, 'Impressiones' (where the original's luscious jazz guitar solos get more of an airing) and two bonus cuts: the sunshine-ready, jazzual deep house wonder of slowly shifting loop jam 'Can't You See' and the chunkier, piano-sporting deep house heaviness of 'Displacing Resolution'. In a word: impeccable!

Review: Is Felipe Gordon Colombia's most prolific producer? There's certainly a strong case that he is, with this Karakul label debut marking his 14th new EP since the start of 2021. You'd expect the quality to dip given that level of output, but as usual Gordon is in fine form throughout. For proof, check Bob The Egotist collaboration, 'Get Your Body Movin', a wonderfully warming chunk of gently soulful house rich in the Colombian's usual tasty Rhodes chords, jazz-funk-fired bass and subtle nods towards mid-90s US garage. On 'Timeless', Gordon douses hypnotic deep house beats and weighty bass guitar loops in ultra-dreamy chords and weary early morning intent, before 'Moving Results' delivers colourful, acid-flecked deep house perfection. Closing cut 'Take It Away', meanwhile, is a more tactile, spacey and loose-limbed chunk of eyes-closed deep house goodness.

Review: One-man musical whirlwind Felipe Gordon has been one of the deep house sensations of the last few years, notching up a formidable catalogue of subtly jazz-funk flavoured treats for all manner of labels. This EP for Toy Tonics marks something of a departure for the talented Colombian, as it marks the first time he's worked with a vocalist - fellow countryman Daniel Pardo AKA Bob The Egotist. The latter makes a big impression on title track 'Freedom', a weighty, wobble-bass propelled chunk of ultra-atmospheric, '90s-influenced deep house brilliance. The other four tracks on the EP are equally as impressive to be honest, with highlights including the flute-sporting, deliciously percussive 'Don't Try It', the shuffling, jazz-funk flavoured mid-tempo warmth of 'Time' (featuring marc Bianco) and the Georg Levin-esque brilliance of 'Expandable'.

The Colombian producer begins his latest Shall Not Fade outing with the ultra-deep jazz-house/deep house fusion of 'The Love' - all meandering Rhodes solos, hissing cymbals, jazzy drums, sustained synth-strings and looped bass guitar - before joining the dots between rubbery electrofunk and uplifting deep house on the classy and addictive 'Da Ghent Life'. He reaches for dusty clarinet samples, twinkling pianos and dusty deep house beats on 'More Than Grateful', before attempting to get us to throw our hands in the air on 'Natural Born Climber', where stretched-out sci-fi chords, elastic synth-bass and jammed-out piano riffs catch the ear.

'Mr Umbawa' is a pleasant little roller with hints of Afro and jazz flavas, 'Feeling All Over It' and 'For Jose And Martha' nudge towards Balearic territory, 'Inherently Deep' is yer classic-style deep houser with some very fine keys work while 'Ventana Al Tiempo' puts a squealing synth front and centre. The pick for yours truly, though, is 'Superimposition' itself - a garage-leaning organ jam to die for!

Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from Heist Recordings' annual Round-Up EPs, namely label regulars and selected guests remixing each other. JKriv and Peter Matson do a terrific job in turning Fouk's 'Money' into a squelchy, TB-303-fired slab of nu-disco/retro-futurist house fusion, before Makez re-imagines Mariana Trench's 'Wake Up' as a jazz-funk flavoured broken beat number and Fouk re-frames a Lore of the Samurai track as a gorgeous slab of house-not-house sunshine. Elsewhere, Mariana Trench gives Felipe Gordon's 'Highly Corrosive Acid' a driving, riff-heavy deep house spin, Felipe Gordon opts for a drowsy and eccentric mid-tempo house sound on his version of JKriv and Peter Matson's 'New Friend', and Lore of the Samurai's rework of Makez's 'City of All' is a hypnotic, tech-tinged treat.

Review: Man-of-the-moment Felipe Gordon was little more than a Columbian producer with promise when he first appeared on Razor N Tape Reserve back in 2019. Since then, he's chalked up impressive, jazz-funk influenced deep house releases for all manner of high-profile labels including Heist, Local Talk and Shall Not Fade. This belated return to Razor N Tape is great, too. Opener 'Strings of the Afterline' is pleasingly hazy and dreamy whilst boasting Gordon's usual synth-heavy squelch, while 'The Fall of a Withered Empire' is a rare vocal number with a deep jazz-house feel. Elsewhere, 'Classico' is a bouncy, classic-sounding deep house bounce-along rich in sparkling synth riffs, while 'Julia Y Lewis' is a more languid and laidback chunk of jazz-sampling, funk-fuelled deep house haziness.

Review: Shall Not Fade rounds off its busiest year to date with a sixth anniversary compilation that's packed to the rafters with previously unreleased tracks from its now sizable family of artists. Also reflective of the sounds showcased by Shall Not Fade's various sub-labels and offshoots, the 24-track set confidently strides between deep two-step (Black Loops), saucer-eyed ambient jungle (Kessler), colourful deep house (Lis Sarocca), lo-fi jack tracks (Cinthie), loopy disco-house (Adelphi Music Factory), jazz-funk flavoured house warmth (Felipe Gordon), analogue-rich broken beat (Yosh), post-UKG heaviness (DJ Crisps), jaunty and jazzy 4/4 garage (DJ Swagger) and the kind of smile-inducing, huggable dancefloor goodness that defies simple categorization (Tilman and Phonk D).

Review: Man of the moment Felipe Gordon is in a rich vein of form right now, which each new week bringing a fresh batch of tracks or remixes. He's in the latter mode on Reworks, Volume 3, the latest volume in his ongoing series for Local Talk. He heads for 4AM heads-down territory on his fine revision of Marcel Vogel AKA EmVee's 'Brotherman Part 1', adding hazy, hypnotic riffs, sampled blues vocals and dazzling early morning synth stabs to a bass-heavy deep house beat. He channels the Colombian sunshine on track two, a colourful, retro-futurist house re-make of Corrado Bucci's 'No One Can Stop Us' that's full to bursting with bright piano riffs, tactile synth bass and sweaty, swinging drums.

Review: Felipe Gordon could be the hardest-working producer in deep house right now. We're not complaining though, because over the last 18 months he's delivered a string of formidable, musically rich releases. Predictably, there's plenty to set the pulse racing on his first Heist Recordings outing too, from the vintage St Germain-inspired jazz-house beauty of opener 'Highly Smooth Tone (featuring Julio Rigal and Equilibrium)', to the squelchy, percussive and intoxicating Latin house vibes of closing cut 'Highly Rhythmic Pace'. Sandwiched in between you'll find two more reasons to be cheerful: the Italian dream house-with-added-jazz flex of saucer-eyed treat 'Highly Deep & Conductive', and the jacking, mind-mangling insanity of 'Highly Corrosive Acid'.

Merrick - "The Scene" (feat Baxley - Felipe Gordon rework) - (6:30) 118 BPM Hot
Review: Having kick-started his new remix series with inspired re-rubs of tracks by Kyodai and Fish Go Deep, man of the moment Felipe Gordon has now turned his attention to cuts from Crazkazat and Merrick. His revision of the former's 'Silent Sling' is undeniably inspired, with heady Latin percussion, jazzy keys and Motor City techno chords rising above rolling house beats and a heavy, mind-altering bassline. It's basically Latin deep house re-imagined for the 21st century, and that's no bad thing. There's more of a swinging, loose-limbed feel to his version of Merrick's 'The Scene', which the Colombian producer re-imagines as a bumpin', stab-happy affair full of raw analogue bass, dreamy pads and electronic jazz-funk flourishes.

Review: Not content with delivering some of the most inspired original productions of the year (see his EPs on Shall Not Fade for starters), jazz-funk loving deep house star Felipe Gordon has now decided to showcase his talents as a remixer. He begins his first Reworks EP for Local Talk by taking on Kyodai's 'Breaking', delivering a fine revision that adds rubbery bass guitar, tight organ stabs, short vocal snippets and waves of delay-laden jazz piano solos to a rolling deep house groove. Gordon veers deeper into jazz-house territory on the accompanying remix of Fish Go Deep's 'Off Script', making the most of snaking clarinet and sax lines, sparkling synth stabs and a quality broken house beat. In a word: superb.

Review: Is there a more on-form deep house producer around than Felipe Gordon? If there is, we've not come across them. The Colombian can do no wrong right now and his latest EP for Shall Not Fade is another must-check affair. He goes in hard to begin with, peppering a retro-futurist Chicago house groove with heady piano riffs and tactile chords on 'Analog Only', before cannily combining jazz-funk bass, Herbie Hancock synths and sturdy deep house beats on 'Continuous Develop'. Fans of jazz-house will love the vintage St Germain vibes - albeit with a touch of squelchy synth-bass - of 'Keepin' It Jazz' and the more becalmed 'Looking Your Reflection on the Water'. Closing cut 'What You Say', a simply sumptuous chunk of warming, heavy-eyed deep house headiness, is also excellent.

Review: Last year, London DJ crew and party promotion outfit SlothBoogie delivered one of the compilations of the year, a wonderfully eclectic and on-point set entitled Dancing With Friends. According to the crew, they spent even more time carefully curating this welcome sequel. You can tell, too. Kicking off with the tactile, slow-burn deep house yearning of Soul Won's '96 to Albert Park', the 21-track collection ambles, strides and jogs between soul-flecked deep house (see Kemback's brilliant 'I Know What You're Thinking'), driving nu-disco (Jesse Bru), swirling deep jackers (Erik Ellmann's 'Private Talk'), loopy disc-house haziness (the always excellent Felipe Gordon), jazz-flecked acid squelch-alongs (Pablot), deep space sample house (Sam Irl) and high-octane, peak-time insanity (The Revenge). Simply brilliant.

Review: There's no denying that Felipe Gordon is one of the most in-form producers in deep house right now, with each successive release from the Colombian seemingly being even greater than the last. He's continued this rich vein of form on A Landscape Onomatopeya, his first full-length for current home Shall Not Fade. The set is naturally rooted in his jazz-funk flavoured brand of deep house, where post-boogie synth sounds, warm electric piano chords and soft-touch jazz guitar solos rise above wonderfully huggable dancefloor beats. There are plenty of ear-pleasing deviations scattered across the album though, from the Azymuth-goes-house brilliance of 'The Colombian Excursions of House Music' and the head-nodding downtempo haziness of 'Wez', to the rare groove style dustiness of 'Howl' and Guru style jazzy hip-hop beats of 'Wake Up'.

Review: Man-of-the-moment Felipe Gordon returns to the Razor 'N' Tape camp with a fresh selection of sample-heavy house cuts following a collaborative re-edit outing on the imprint alongside pal Vagabundo Club Social in 2019. He hits the ground running with blissful and tactile opener 'Those Quiet Eyes of Yours', where effortlessly jazzy and laidback guitar licks and woozy synth sounds ride a squeezable TB-303 bassline and dusty deep house drums. The acid bass remains on the more boisterous and bustling 'There's a Part of Me That's Always True', while 'Now That You Caught My Heart This Evening' makes great use of jazzy electric piano flourishes, sampled orchestration and eyes-closed, samba style vocal snippets. More warming, glassy-eyed fun can be found on toasty deep house closing cut 'That Night at El Bukowski', where twinkling motifs, jazz-funk and bubbly electronics catch the ear.

Review: As the title suggests, this dazzling EP is a trans-Atlantic collaboration between two genuine rising stars of house music: Colombian Felipe Gordon, and London's Cody Currie. Musically, the overriding theme of the EP is loose-limbed jazziness and the warming colour of jazz-funk, with the pair setting the tone via the ultra-deep broken beat vibes of 'Better Days' and the sparkling deep house/jazz-funk fusion of Ally McMahon hook-up 'Cold Nights'. 'Late Nights' is a cheery piano-house number laden with spacey synthesizer flourishes, while 'Our Love' is smooth and soulful deep house at its very best. The EP also includes a solo track from each, with Gordon's languid vocal deep house number 'I'm On Fire' being followed by Currie's bumpin' and bass-heavy 'No Future'. In a word: essential.
