GrooveSource Cycle 149

GrooveSource Cycle 149
Pre-Release Date 4/21/2009
General Release Date 5/12/2009

JEL043 – Dave Angel “Dogspray” Jericho Records – TECHNO
Jericho Records goes from strength to strength after its recent wave of releases from the likes of Smith and Selway and Anderson Noise which were massively well received by DJs and buyers alike. Next up is a Jericho Records regular - Dave Angel - who should need no introduction being one of the greatest exponents of techno ever to walk the earth. His original is a driving fat club bomb that bubbles away and builds neatly for maximum dancefloor impact. On the flipside Mark Broom delivers a monumental remix adding more suspense and drama with huge builds and drops and cleverly using the stabs to maximum effect. Another winner from this solid label.

PDD001 – Slumdogz “Pushin Sound presents Jai Ho” Prime Direct – PROGRESSIVE HOUSE
The Slumdogz version of "Jai Ho" from the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack is the first release on new UK label Pushin' Sound. The Wez Clarke mix is a juggernaut of a rework. Already firmly in the pocket of Pete Tong after receiving no less than 5 consecutive weekly plays on his influential Radio One show, and making constant appearances in his worldwide club sets (notably on his recent Brazil tour alongside Angello & Ingrosso). Not content with support on Tong's show, 'Jai Ho' has also taken over the airwaves via high profile support from the likes of Annie Mac (Radio One), Nihal (Radio One) and Des Paul (Capital Radio).

*Due to the high profile of this release it was not promoted. It was only given to a very few select jocks including Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Nihal from Radio 1 and Des Paul from Capital Radio.

SC001 – Paul Anthony, ZXX & Dust N Haze “This Is What I Do” Supa Cutz – ELECTRO HOUSE
The debut release on Charles Feelgood's new label Supacutz Recordings. Featuring an original track by Paul Anthony, ZXX and Dust N Haze and remixes by Charles Feelgood and TJR. This release features a diverse selection of electro house tracks. From jackin to funky to fidget house this debut release has something to offer any electro house dj. An excellent representation of how stateside producers do electro.

First up is the Paul Anthony, ZXXand Dust N Haze original mix. A jackin, dirty electro house tune that will get the floors jumpin. Dope vocals, dirty beats and razor sharp edits make this one definite peaktime gear. Next up is TJR on the remix, with previous releases on In Stereo, Eden, Wearhouse Music and Promo Records just to name a few, TJR has been killing it at the moment and with this remix he slows no signs of slowing down. Any fan of fidget will be into this track. Great reworking of the vocal and tons of wobble on the bassline. This track has a crazy energy to it....Serious peaktime tunage. Last is the Charles Feelgood Remix. A bumpin, funk drenched electro house affair that will create havoc on any dancefloor. Full of twists and turns, breaks and builds this one will definitely keep em guessing. Another one for the peak hour.

*Receiving support from DJs: 1200 Warriors, Allister Whitehead, Crystal Method, DJ Dan, Honey Dijon, Andy Moor, Peter Hook (New Order), Valentin Café del Mar, Bryan Jones, Ken ECB, Scott K., DJ Bam Bam, Nigel Richards, Special Interest, Noah Levine (XLR8R, Urb), W.

SPEC0903 – Marco Bailey & Tom Hades “Spektral” Spectrum Recordings – TECH HOUSE
Spectrum continues to move full steam ahead into 2009, and follows with another solid release this time courtesy of Marco Bailey with his track 'Spektral'. This deep and dubby groover is sure to keep the progressive heads happy but still carries enough weight to keep the all techno tots smiling too; A seriously good track from the Belgian techno don.

Remix duties come courtesy of Matt Nordstrom & Orland Villegas. Matt is already well known as dubfire's engineer but is making waves as a producer in his own right, and rapidly rising through the ranks of the techno fraternity after fantastic records on labels such as Nick Fancuilli's Saved Recordings.

Matt & Orlando take a deeper, more eerie spin on the original - definitely one for the early hours and those who like it stripped down, trippy and hypnotic. All in all, this completes another great release on this relatively new label which is rapidly growing in stature. Our one to watch for 2009 and beyond.

Look out for forthcoming music on Spectrum from fantastic artists such as: Joel Mull, Jerome Sydenham, Petar Dundov, Nihad Tule, Spektre and Andre Sobota...

UNION014 – Groove Federation “Move On EP” Union Recordings – HOUSE
For this Union release we're coming on STRONG with some of the best material from Jackin' Deep House artists: The Groove Federation! When I first got these tracks, I couldn't believe what was coming out of my speakers; a little bit of soul, a little bit of shuffle, and a whole lot of funk. I thought to myself: "I have got to get some remixes together for this!" Who did I call? None other than Union veteran, Chris Quadrant of the "Dreamin' About You" EP. Not only did he do a slamming remix for us, but we also enlisted the help of Union newcomer, Luke Ladgroove (we'll be seeing more of him in upcoming Union releases. He's going to be a name worth remembering). With Chris and Luke on the remix we had 3 soul-packed jams, which would be enough for a great digital EP, but we didn't stop there. We're also including 2 more original tracks from the Groove Federation as a top off! You know when you walk into a brewery and not only do they have your favorite beer, but they also have about 10 other beers that you haven't tried? Sometimes you can get a little shot glass of every beer they have to offer. Well this is your chance to sample a little of what Union has to offer. We present an amazing 5 track EP from the Groove Federation with remixes from Chris Quadrant and Luke Ladgroove. Move ON!
