We’re just two days away from the Bottom Forty Interior with Vin Sol this Saturday at Kremwerk. Our musical salivary glands are dripping with anticipation so we’re giving you a daily sneak peek into our record bags. Today’s track was selected by spaceotter and is called In The Box by Andreas Saag. It’s a minimal tech house jam with a few old school breakbeats thrown in for good measure. Enjoy and we’ll see you this Saturday kittehs!
2013 was pretty amazing. I heard somewhere that there are something like 2000 house tracks made available via various digital, vinyl and other media every week these days; it’s great to hear the profusion of music coming out and hear everyone’s voice.

Malmö, Sweden’s Minilogue, composed of Sebastian Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson, has been at it for a minute, creating fine techno from their city just across the channel from neighboring Copenhagen, Denmark.

Lately, I’ve been puring some of their newer works (in remix form) into my mixes, but some classics remain, of which this is but a sample of their fine catalogue.
Now that we’ve had our annual dose of “Amurka, FUCK YEAH,” how about a little “Scandanavia, YA SURE, YA BETCHA”?
Swedish Local Talk Records has been making house waves since 2011, with a fine ear for deepness and a catalogue of artists the likes of Berlin’s Kyodai, UK’s Wil Maddams, Rennes France’s DJ Steaw, and Ireland’s Shane Linehan, among others. Forming just in time to herald the recent deep house revival, label masters Mad Mats & Tooli find, rediscover and issue tracks that revel in the glory of early house sounds. With a growing catalogue, they’ve charted some instant classics already, and have the smell of future legend.
