Notes from the Underground: Stanton Warriors, Christian Martin, Anjunadeep, CUFF, Fritz Carlton

July 28, 2015, 4:15pm

In this week's edition, we've got Radiohead-inspired house from Anjunadeep, a San Francisco vs. London remix via Stanton Warriors and Christian Martin, some sleazy g-house from CUFF, soulful deep house from Spain, and more from weirdo house upstart Fritz Carlton.

Stanton Warriors - "The One" (Christian Martin remix)

San Francisco takes on London on "The One" as Dirtybird OG Christian Martin delivers a glitzy, upbeat take on Stanton Warriors' whomp-lite bassline tune.

Cubicolor - "Down the Wall" [Anjunadeep]

Above & Beyond's deeper, housier sub-label Anjunadeep hitting outta the park with this one. Dutch producer Cubicolor brings strong Kid A vibes to a house beat, so much so that you half-expect Thom Yorke to warble out some snarl about the state of the human condition halfway through.

FUTURPOETS - "Ruin U Cunt"

Fresh off Amine Edge & DANCE's CUFFOFF08 compilation, the Guadalajaran duo of FUTURPOETS re-appropriate a memorable sample from Azealia Banks' " ," atop a techy house beat. It's got attitude and groove by the bushel and is guaranteed to get your dance party a little saucier.

Fritz Carlton - "Push It" [Nite Records]

You gotta wonder what goes on in the mind of young Fritz Carlton. His tunes often maintain a frenetic, syncopated energy that's brought back to center by subtle grooves. I guess that's why they call him Fritz.

John Vermont - "Evanescent" [Seven Villas]

Spanish label Seven Villas fancy themselves "specialists in deep music," and John Vermont's debut release, "Evanescence," sounds like they're worth their sun-kissed salt. The house tune has a lively groove, soulful vocals, and a latently brooding quality that all make it a complex listen.
