Jericho Records continues its return to the forefront with this amazing new release from the hottest producer in dance music right now - Eric Prydz. Using his Cirez D moniker here Eric has created a sublime, deep yet pumping masterpiece with hints of Planet E with its simple building groove and enormous pads yet still due to the immense production managing to pack a huge wallop. As if that wasn't enough, Pig and Dan pick up the pace with an amazing, pumping groove which perfectly utilizes parts of the original to superb effect. Already mercilessly hammered by Eric Prydz and Pig and Dan themselves as well as Jon Digweed early on - many others are now picking up on this bomb and this will feature heavily on house and techno floors alike. Devastating!!

Is that his real name? Is he from Europe? People sometimes get a little confused about Harrison Crump and who he is, so let's set the record straight. Yes, it is his real name and no, he's not from Europe. This Chicago born and bred native still lives in "The CHI" and has become that rarest commodity known in dance music - a highly sought-after producer, remixer, singer and songwriter. This guy's songwriting abilities have led to a close musical relationship with long-time friend Felix da Housecat and have earned him production credits on P-Diddy's dance music project Divided Souls. Now it's time for one of the first singles off of his upcoming artist album. NUM395S is a super hot dancefloor stormer which includes vocals from the uber-talented DJ Heather. Start the count down because this shit is about to take off!!!

While Eidolon may be one of Minneapolis' best kept secrets, the boys over at Solar Cathedral have been paying homage to his releases on labels like Syndikaat, We Are, Enemy, Abiotic, Wreckless & Lobotomy. With the ability to introduce super dark and twisted rhythms without losing focus on the dance floor at hand, we bring you the Crimes of Conversation EP. 'I Can Understand' moans and groans about the room, peppered with snapping snare drums and catchy high hat patterns while 'In Between' possesses a bass line funk and disoriented vocal samples that will make any crowd bounce. 'A45' is for the serious contenders, with a driving kick drum and hypnotic synth work that make this track a must have for those that really want to take the floor someplace deep. Label owner's Matt Rissi and Mustafa Avdic offer up a remix of 'In Between' that was put together with the sole intention of creating goose bumps before devastating the sound system. Another stellar release from the Midwesterners of The United States.

Alberto demonstrates his skill to be able to elaborate true minimal techno composed with the use of rhythmic melodies, high frequencies and low base tones that go from the most deep to the simplest of patterns. On top of the original we have included remixes from label head Zarbeat, Sergio Soroa, A de Large, Gusgo and Marco Esse.
