The latest instalment in Running Back's terrific 'Mastermix' series of compilations pays tribute to legendary Frankfurt club night Wild Pitch, a weekly Thursday night session that dared to challenge the dominance of techno in the city via a house-heavy playlist. The collection has been co-curated by co-founder Ata and fellow resident DJ Nd_baumecker and, as you'd expect, contains a wealth of dancefloor treats. What's on offer is a mix of authentic U.S house and European productions inspired by that sound, with our picks of a very strong bunch including the twisted, early morning Miami house of Ralph Falcon ('Every Now and Then'), the tactile brilliance of KGB's 'Detroit 909', the deep, acid-splattered hypnotism of Omegaman ('Into The A.M'), a bongo-rich drum workout from Lectroluv ('Dream Drums') and a classic Charles Webster production (Presence's 'How To Live').
