Sidney Strikes Again

It should be no surprise that we here at Bottom Forty are totally enamored with Sidney Charles. He was Resident Advisor’s Top 100 Most Charted Artists of 2013 and has been consistently churning out jam after jam.

So imagine our delight to learn his buddy Sante‘s label Avotre released the phenomenal compilation House Lessons. A 16-track LP that includes tracks either written and performed or remixed by Sidney Charles. It also features tracks by Pan-Pot, Hot Since 82 and includes remixes by Kalyde, Darius Syrossian and Patrick Topping.

Do yourself a favor and head over to Beatport Pro now and get this entire release. You can’t go wrong with the techno throbbers Silky Thread and TXL or smoother tech house joints like 303 Love Story or Horny. Pure magic here, open sesame!
