June charts & reactions

(Thoughtless Music)

Key track: Surface Patterns (Knowing Looks Rmx)
There’s a graceful, old school chillout feel to this track that just gives me goosebumps.

(Blipswitch Digital)

Key track: J. Rogers Dub-Tek Odyssey mix
Amazing mix of deep house and deep dubstep with a wide array of sounds from J. Rogers, flexing his muscle, on this rework of Texan Jason Mundo’s single.

Tiefschwarz feat Seth Troxler
Key track: Original

Nice pumpin tech house jam with some crazy slappy sounds and great zings and pings.

Roy Davis Jr.
God Life Music Album Sampler

Key track: Let It Ride

I can envision playing this at sunrise, this reminds me of old Chris Lum sh*t. Deep, tracky soulfulness.

Joel Mull & Sean Palm
Spice Market (Blackjack Remix Series)
(Railyard Recordings)

Key track: Acid Circus Remix

I really enjoyed the deep groove and textures that color this remix from LA’s Acid Circus.

Patrick Graeser

Key track: Original

Beautiful usage of acid and melody here for something regal and understated. This is some nice sleek, late night material.

Ricardo Jefferson
Chi Town
(Nice & Nasty)

Key track: Original

Moody, tribal, and deep with a slew of Chicago house influences as the title might suggest.

Land Sound
The Sea
(Untitled & After)
Key track: Original

This is a great example of industrial techno, very assembly line sounding. Reminds me a lot of Drumcell's work on Droid.

Paul Brtschitsch
The Dentex

Key track: Adiamo
Great moody late night tech house with cosmic melodies and stellar groove.

Jean-Claude Ades
Shingaling/Harlem Remixes
(Great Stuff)

Key track: Harlem (Gorge Remix)

Nice deep house cut, very pastoral with some nice whooshes and a subtle breakdown.

Pablo Bolivar
Looking For A Shape
Key Track: Original mix

Great dubbiness, crisp percussion, and good house groove. Solid track.

Denny Trajkov

Key track: From Chicago To Detroit

Top notch filtered tech house ala Plastic City w some stoned immaculate bliss going on in the melodies.

Wilson, Smallwood & Ingram
Perfect Sunrise
(Leaders Of the New School)

Key track: Alex Kenji Dub

Deep, spacy morning track. Perfect for nestling up to some cozy cloud for awhile.

Spencer Parker
The Beginning
(Buzzin Fly)
Key track: Michel Cleis Rmx
Love the bongo action on this one, very soulful and warm.

Tessio Remixes Pt. 2
(Great Stuff Roots Edition)

Key track: Ramon Tapia Remix

Always a sucker for this cut, not sure how many more remixes i'll be able to sit through. Tapia does some nice tweaky stuff but wish he would have used more of the vocals.

Glimpse & Alex Jones
True Friends
Key track: Original
Great chunky house w some minor chorded moodiness from Get Physical offshoot. Love it!

Seeking Attention

Key track: Altra

Dark, late night sounds and deep tribal techno.

Douglas Greed
New Innerstate Strategies
(InFine Music)

Key track: Original

Great vocal cut w a flare for dramatics and a good house beat underneath. Nice work here.

Stefano Vozza
Twenty Remixes Pt. 3
(Dublin Xpress)

Key track: J. Riordan 20% Off Marked Price mix

Languid, rich, and tribal. Definitely the kind of sound I am looking for on this solid release.

Gasp & Fissures Parade Remixes

Key track: Fractured Dub Mix

Like the atonal sounds and deep, wandering bass. Good clacking percussion, too.
