Review: Phwoar! Whether you've experienced this crew's massive arena-filling Exodus parties or not, this 32-track release is a fitting finale to yet another monstrous year for Chuckie and friends. A sizzling sonic snapshot of the Dirty Dutch family their most extended, we're treated to cuts from across the board - from the rampant tech-electro of Marco V's "Solid Sounds" to the groovier, squelchier vibes of Sebastian Leger's rub of Format B. A true spread with every hour of the night in mind, this is the most comprehensive project the double D crew have curated to date.
Christian Burkhardt - "Hola" (instrumental version) - (7:11) 125 BPM
Review: For their sixth instalment, the Bad Klosterlausnitz based Muna Musik return with their biggest lineup yet boasting the current creme de la creme of house music from their own soil and beyond. Right heroes on here, such as Beste Modus boss Cinthie with the bumpin' classic house journey "Hurt Me", Frankfurt Rhein-Main legend Christian Burkhardt is also on top form with the trippy, latin infused minimal house of "Hola". For something dead set on the main room at peak time, Spanish scene hero Hector Couto has you covered with his new school antics. The tough rolling groove of "Ciroco" really satisfies, as does the deep melodic tech house of Luca Donzelli's "Not Ordinary".
Review: Deep and slinky tech house by Spanish favourite Hector Couto and it finds a fitting home on Ralph Lawson's esteemed Leeds institution that is still going strong. The title track as well as the very funky "Music Please" are the kind of rolling peak time grooves that have seen him have several releases on the likes of Mihalis Safras' Material Series; so no coincidence really! "Raw Fixation" or "House Bounce" dive deeper with their NYC style swing and shuffle and infectious basslines; no wonder he's released on Hot Creations too! There's an undeniable nod to Kerri Chandler on both tracks, which we loved.
