Review: It's not giving much away to state that Dessous' latest compilation, a third instalment in their occasional We Like The Deep series, is piled high with house music that combines tried-and-tested dancefloor grooves with melody-rich musical elements that tend towards the warm and atmospheric. Because of this, each and every one of the collection's 11 tracks sound just as good at home as they do on a meaty club soundsystem. Our picks of the multitude of highlights include the hypnotic, locked-in haziness of James Dexter's 'Get To This', the afternoon-fresh jazziness of Mihai Popoviciu's 'Left Hand Thought', the ultra-deep shuffle of 'Soul Alive' by Chocky, and the opaque deep house soul of Langenberg's Blakkat hook-up, 'Shadows'.

Review: Esteemed German deep house imprint Dessous Recordings return with the second edition of the We Like The Deep series. Here Steve Bug & Co. curate another wonderful selection of sensual groove delights. Highlights coming from: Fairground People with the melancholic Windy City vibe of "Sound Foundation", as always legend Charles Webster lends his midas touch to Berlin veteran Phonique's "Worked It Out" (feat Ian James Whitelaw & Volker Meitz), longstanding label staple Vincenzo appears with the sexy deep disco goodness of "Don't You Ever Stop" while Bug's partner in crime Langenberg servers up some meditative tribal atmospherics on "Alternate Rhythm". Plus, there's the welcome return of UK tech house veteran Jamie Anderson (with Owain K) on the dubby late night mood music of "Night Scanner".

Kerri On (Langenberg remix) - (6:03) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Second time around for Apes Go Bananas' "Kerri On", a heartfelt tribute to U.S deep house don Kerri Chandler that first appeared on wax back in 2015. This time round, the Steve Bug and Cle produced original mix - a suitably bumpin' U.S house style roller rich in jammed-out organ riffs, spacey synths and warm, undulating bass - comes backed by two fresh 2019 remixes. First James Dexter offers a deeper and woozier interpretation build around even heavier bass, spacey riffs and chunkier drums, before Langenberg wraps the duo's headline-grabbing organ stabs around a dubby bassline and stripped-back drums.

Review: For those who like their house deep, groovy and emotion-rich, Dessous's back catalogue is a veritable goldmine. It is rather vast, though, so it's good to see the Steve Bug-helmed imprint giving us a few pointers via this excellent compilation. Check, for example, the drowsy chords, undulating bass and jazzy drums of Thierry Tomas's "Piu Piu", the basement-bothering tech-tinged chunkiness of James Dexter's "120" and the ultra-deep late night hyonotism of Chocky's "Self-Knowledge (Dub)", where hazy and trippy synthesizer motifs ebb and flow over a locked-in groove. Further highlights come in the shape of Tom Flynn's fuzzy and far-out "Pluck" and a brilliant mid-tempo Genius of Time rub of Vincenzo's "106 Downtown" full of gentle acid lines and freaky electronic noises.

Review: You can always rely on Hamburg heroes Dessous for sexy and slinky deep house that's perfect mood lighting for the late night. This time the groove comes courtesy of one Chocky - the name comes from the John Wyndham novel of the same name, in which an alien utilises frequencies and sounds to communicate to the world. The UK producer appears for the label a second time this year, in addition to releases on Ears Have Eyes and Big Bait Recordings. "Double Dip" is tough yet smoove east coast house in the tradition of Karizma or Mr. V. "Organism" is the kind of hypnotic and dubby deepness you'd expect to hear on sister label Poker Flat - but it's equally at home here, if we do say ourselves! "Soul Alive" with its mesmerising chord progressions would make even Jimpster stand up and notice and the funked up and dusted down disco loops of "Playtime Dub" will appeal to all Robsoul and I'm A House Gangster fans.

Review: 136 releases deep, Steve Bug's Dessous label continues to impress with each successive outing. As you'd expect, the four tracks showcased on this James Dexter EP are all club-ready and pleasingly playable. Dexter begins with the echo-laden old school vocal samples, atmospheric chords and swinging deep house groove of "Drift", before adding a touch more bumping New Jersey flavour on the similarly minded "Take Me". "Whose Rules?" is an even deeper and more hypnotic excursion with an altogether more locked-in rhythm track, while "Disco Deep" is a fluttering summer breeze of an outing played out at a tempo that suits al-fresco dancing on the shores of the Adriatic Sea.

Review: Hailing from Japan, Iori Wakasa is a name that has been gathering a great deal of hype over the past few years and with good reason. Having built up his skills as a majorly talented DJ in Tokyo and spinning a wide range of sounds and styles, his reputation continues to grow at pace thanks to a string of amazing releases on labels such as Highgrade and WirSindEins in recent years. Here he proves what all the fuss is about with a stunning four track EP on Steve Bug's Dessous Recordings. It's deep house of the darker variety on "Be There" or "Give Me"; the kind of tracks that Ferrer & Sydenham were responsible for back in the day while "Feel It Dizzy" is the kind of woozy and sultry kinda deepness that would make even DJ Koze stand up and notice.

Review: Given that he's been knocking out high quality deep house for the best part of a decade, it's something of a surprise to find that Central Heated House is Max "Langenberg" Heesen's debut album. Less surprising, perhaps, is the high quality threshold maintained throughout. Heesen obviously counts Larry Heard amongst his greatest influences, as there's a real Mr Fingers feel evident throughout. Of course, there are deviations from the script - see the deep soulful house of Blakkat collaboration "Shadows", the bubbling, acid-flecked boisterousness of "Dreamliner", and the Tenaglia at Twilo flex of "Planitz Proposal" - but for the most part it's a deep, melodious and atmospheric affair.

Review: Poker Flat diffusion line Dessous has been dedicated to the pursuit of sexy and emotive deep house grooves unlike its more tech house oriented sister label. For this release the Hamburg institution calls upon London producer Farzana Elahe aka Habit To Others for four luscious servings of late night groove for sexy fashion crowds. Starting out with the slinky and upbeat energy of "Everything", which features some impressive synth melodies and seductive vocals, there a great remix of it by St Petersburg's Ivan Latyshev. "You Want This" goes for some sleazy low-slung flavour (for something more chill) while "That Life" goes for something more dubby and darker with some haunting chords backing one incredibly rolling groove.

Review: In recent times, Ivan Latyshev's releases have smoothly fused a variety of warm, hazy sounds, resulting in tracks that tiptoe that fine line between sturdy deep house, and dancefloor Balearica. Here he makes his debut on Dessous, delivering three more toasty deep house excursions that look a little later in the night for inspiration. He begins with the jazz-flecked drums, Chez Damier influences and warehouse warm-up vibes of "To My Youth", before layering up nu-disco electronics, rubbery electric bass, tech-house beats and old school vocal samples on "Can't Go Away". Finally, he grabs a jazz drummer, gets a few killer loops going, and dives headfirst into deeper waters on the standout "Old Ages".

Review: Given his lengthy career and bulging discography, it's something of a surprise to find that this is Max 'Langenberg' Heesen's first single for two years. It sees him join forces with fellow long-serving producer Blakkat, whose career stretches back to the dawn of the millennium. In its' original form, "Shadows" is something of a deep, soulful and atmospheric treat, with a spine-tingling male vocal riding a tech-tinged groove and some serious dreamy chords. The accompanying remixes are excellent, too, with Atjazz's two versions - vocal and instrumental - standing out. Working with a re-tooled, slightly bouncier groove and some additional chiming melodies, the veteran British deep house producer elevates the track to a whole new level.

He teams up with Voyeurhythm boss Tyson Ballard on "Malvern Road", what a deep and soulful journey this one is. Killer bassline too. "Follow" sees Vincenzo go solo on this smooth and emotive jam that is so typical of his work; a career that has spanned nearly twenty years. Finally he hooks up with Melbourne producer Mic Newman for the sultry house number that's rather fittingly titled "Melbs".

First up is "Have It Like That", which fits right in with Steve Bug's label's modus operandi just fine with this sexy late night deep house journey for sophisticated crowds. He dives deeper on "No time", which is more reminiscent of late '90s U.S. house: think Guidance or Nite Grooves. Finally "Get On To This" ups the ante proper on this sleazy tribal tech house killer equally indebted to the late 90's in a way that Hipp E & Halo would appreciate.

Review: Lockwood is a Belgian duo, but on this release for Steve Bug's Dessous label, they sound like they come from Chicago. In particular, the title track is a deep US house-style groove, its powerful, rumbling bass and gorgeous keys reminding the listener of classic cuts from Prescription. 'Sway' feeds on that other Chicago legacy, acid, as 303s are fused with swelling chords for a functional but musical workout. Finally, there's the Nils Penner version of the title track. Retaining Lockwood's sensuous musical elements, he underpins them with a swinging funk bass that will remind listeners of the highlights from Paper's mid to late 90s catalogue. Like Lockwood themselves, it is classic deep house brought up to date.

Review: Long-standing German tech-house legend Steve Bug, founder of both Pokerflat and Dessour, returns to the latter label with something a bit special, and likely to satisfy all of your DJ needs. The producing don has taken it upon himself to remix a twelve tunes, all from different artists that have shaped the sound of house and techno as we know it today. You'll find Bug's retouches on artists like Simon Baker, Manuel Tur, and even Lovebirds. However, the special moments come from his sleek Re-Dub of Chez Damier's mythical house bomb "New York Dub", a stripped back edit of Laurent Garnier's "Whistle For Frankie, and the gorgeously deep swells of his remix of "Pensum" by Francis Harris. Masterful, and very much recommended.

Rather high production values on here with rich and elevating synth textures supporting Redway's brilliantly emotive vocals. Producer extraordinaire Ewan Pearson lends his hand to two tremendous remixes of the track. The main remix keeps Redway's vocals on this dark chugging epic, with a dirty arpeggio backed by some superb science fiction synth zaps, until another more soulful arpeggio lead joins the fray. Brilliant! There's a dub version for those of you less keen on the vocals.

Here the focus is on his other love: slinky, sexy, deep house for night people. All the usual tech house suspects are here on this compilation such as Greek up and comer Echnomist, Get Physical's Jona and legend Andre Lodemann and all deliver the exact same quality they can be relied upon for. But the main highlights here are undoubtedly; Caset Moi with "This Song" providing early evening grooves for the fashion crowd, Mihai Popoviciu's remix of Phonique and Acumen's "The Moment" with its smooth, rolling bassline and deep druggy vibe essential for any trendy after party. Oh and there's Andrade's 'Egregius', a euphoric peak time builder that's guaranteed to be working a dancefloor near yours soon!

Emerge (original mix) - (8:02) 124 BPM
Review: Despite his young age, Jona has already released on Planet E and Get Physical - and is preparing his debut album. This release on Steve Bug's label shows that his musical ability belies his youth. The title track is a nagging, filtered house groove in the Relief/Sneak vein, while "Emerge" is based on a similar backing. Rolling drums and insistent percussive ticks provide the basis for dubby textures and subsonic bleeps that result in a harder sound. The release also features a remix from Charles Webster, with the veteran UK producer turning "Tomorrow" into a choppy groove that is led by nagging keys.

Bac A Sable - (6:41) 123 BPM
Review: Many of Dessous's releases feel like the audible equivalent of a deep hug - cozy, warm and loving. This three-tracker from young French producer Olivier Andrade is no different. Packed with hazy, toasty deep house, it oozes classy musicality from every digitally encoded second. The choppy, Rhodes-laden "Madness" is probably our pick, though it's pushed all the way in the "standout" stakes by the EP's other two tracks. There's the woozy, bass-heavy bliss of lead track "Egregius" - all cosmic pads and subtle vocal samples - and calming, enveloping late night vibes of "Bac a Sable", whose horizontal chords and laidback melodies recline over a bumpin' US house groove.

Release & Check (part 1) - (5:58) 119 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Few deep house producers seem to work quite as hard as Andy Ash. Over the last few years, he's released on a plethora of labels, including On The Prowl, Foto, StilLove4Music, Scenery and Quintessentials. Here, he pops up on Steve Bug's Dessous imprint with three more perfectly pitched doses of melodic deepness. "Workin" - a dreamy, techno-tempo fusion of swirling chords, bold stabs and evocative melodies propelled forwards by hissing ride cymbals - is arguably the pick of the bunch, though it faces stiff competition. The slower, baggier but no less emotion rich "Mindflow" - seemingly a tribute to early '90s Chicago deep house - runs it close, while the bustling keys, smooth bassline and darting electronics of "Release and Check (Part 1)" are a joy to behold.

Fair Ride - (6:46) 124 BPM
Review: Man of many aliases Petros Manganaris (INFO, The Scientifics, Petter Pann etc.) returns to his most famous pseudonym, Echonomist, for a deep and sensual outing on Dessous. "Keys To Life" offers up a tactile blend of energetic low-end shuffle, spiralling chords, cosmic vocal samples and killer organs. While vintage American deep house seems to be his primary influence (check the skipping drums for proof), he carefully steers clear of hollow revivalism. The seemingly unstoppable Kyodai goes even deeper on his remix, thickening up the percussion and stripping the track back to a booming, late night groove. The EP also includes a tasty dose of hazy autumnal sunshine in the shape of "Fair Ride".

Eyes Wide Open (Alix Alvarez remix) - (6:11) 123 BPM
Played by: Loco Dice
Review: "Imagine" is an apt title for deep house stalwart Andre Lodemann's latest effort. Blessed with all manner of intricate musical touches - loose jazz drums, sneaky guitars, dreamy freestyle vocals, deep chords and bubbling electronics - it appears to be the product of a particularly vivid imagination. This is no bad thing; it eschews the standard deep house formula, instead delivering something far more interesting, involving and, dare we say it, playable. The similarly melodic and drifting "Eyes Wide Open" tightens up the grooves, but retains a picturesque air of natural majesty. For those seeking more straightforward pleasures, Alix Alvarez's rework of "Eyes Wide Open" bulks up the beats in pursuit of chunky, melodic deep house delights.

Review: Dessous Recordings - Steve Bug's other label - has always supported the more melodic, fluid end of the deep house spectrum. While recent releases have been notable by the force of their low-end bounce, the label's commitment to musicality remains. This EP from Parisian producer Olivier Andrade continues that trend. "Hype No Tool" boasts sweaty, bumping drums, but it's to the hypnotic, jazzwise piano riff and long, drawn-out chords that the ear is drawn. "Love", meanwhile, opts for more of a cut-up garage revival flex, while "Magic Key" is simply sumptuous. As if that lot wasn't enough to get the juices flowing, there's also a tipsy, loose remix of "Hype No Tool" from Dessous regular Kiki.

Review: Bristol tech-house veteran and Cardiff-based DJ/producer Owain K have been working together for some time, with 2012's "Do You Know" being one of the sleeper hits of last summer. Here, Dessous Recordings gives it the remix treatment. Barcelona's Soul Minority kicks things off with a version that gets just the right balance between weighty low-end shuffle, summery brightness and sparse deepness. The Inner Space mix is propelled forward by waves of smooth chords and bubbling electronics, while the Jazz Reprise mix drops layers of twinkling jazz keys over a classic '90s house groove. There's also a Juno exclusive in the shape of the Deep Space mix - a bumpin' deep house tweak with just the right amount of synth-laden futurism.
