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.
