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. My own selections for 2013 (11 of them–because it’s an architect vibration in numerology and I like that number) were mostly in the house vein with some tech/booty/nu disco tendencies. Here are some of my favorites released this year. read more …

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.
