Dirt Crew Recordings
DIRT107 | 2017-09-25  
The annual Deep Love compilation has become one of our most important releases to showcase what Dirt Crew Recordings is all about. It gives us the chance to highlight and welcome new faces alongside the residents who keep the Deep music we stand for alive. This year more than ever we have artists from all over the World, from Japan to Canada and Lithuania to Austria represented.

The man the myth... Mr. Nightcrawler himself is back with another masterpiece. True to his usual unique blend of many styles, Nachtbraker has delivered typically off-kilter "Cobi Cabani" with crashes and sound design that punctuate a freaky bass and rippling lead. Dropping in for his debut outing on our label, Viennese resident of Sass club and founder of the "Secret Crunch" imprint, Roman Rauch brings the filtered Disco House. Ripe with fruity percussion and deeply ingrained groove, "Sweet Ears" breathes and builds keeping up energy to work bodies throughout the cut. Close friend of the Dirt Crew family and member of Detroit Swindle's Live super group, Lorenz Rhode is an extraordinary artist who's not only active in the House Music scene but also created his own Big Band, the Rundfunk-Tanzorchester Ehrenfeld. He gets right to it in "On Top" a legit live key and bass jam with all the funk from a seasoned jazz musician. 

From across the Atlantic we have Toronto's Jesse Futerman teaming up with Dan Only, Jesse remixed Harry Wolfman's last EP on DC and is known for his laid back house grooves. On "Changes" he wanders into coastal tinged Deep House territory. Subby toms amble alongside a gruff bass, while vocals echo in from the horizon. As usual we're very happy to welcome back Leipzig's finest, M.ono. Taking a solo moment from repping great Disco/House alongside Luvless on their label Rose Records. He's produced "Jamas", a rumbling, samba touched, hip moving jam with powerful horn stabs and jangly percussion bring a true street party feeling. The Icelandic wunderkind Felix Leifur is present once again after recently debuting on Frits Wentink's label Bobby Donny. His artful mix of glitched lofi breaks, signature rhodes, dusty hip hop samples and scratched jazz cuts flex into outer-worldly extravaganza "Record". Then what's left to say about Mr. Mython? Continuously producing diamond after diamond we make sure to reach out regularly so we can catch a gem before the gifted musician erases them from his harddisk. Ponty's latest, this super spacious disco sojourn "Who am i Kidding?" is classy, deep, sauntering and aloof. Great music from beginning to end!

The Nagano based artist Jun Kamoda has become a good friend, and we're pleased to have back on Deep Love 2017 with his crazy mix of influences. On "Whole Lotta Love" arps bounce amongst sweet melodies while crisp drums play with pitchy vocals, it's functional yet left-field House in it's finest. A multitalented creative, he's also painted the wonderful artwork featured on the front of the record's sleeve. Thatmanonkz, back after a full EP earlier this year, goes sooo deeep... "Liebestrasse" is smokey and soulful with a casual clap, glowing Rhodes and winding lead. It's G-funk meets Deep House in the best kind of way. Next up Loz Goddard returns with a blissful summer tune, his feel-good mix of Disco and House reminds us of early Groove Armada goodness. The ambrosial melodies and meandering mood on "Now is Where We Are" brings a 70s mansion complete with scantily clad swimmers to mind, a perfect "Love" track for this compilation. Wrapping up the session BAL 5000 has made one hell of a stomper. The Hungarian producer who debuted on our sister label S P I E L gives us "Under the Influence". Rave stabs intersect a guttural bass and acidic lead on this electro infused House groove, reminiscent of early WARP-ish Bleep house.
