We Luv LDN

With all the difficult times we’ve had in London lately we thought it was time to remind ourselves of what a great city it is. The UK’s capital has made enormous contributions to dance music over the last three decades: the genesis of UKG and dubstep are both intrinsically linked to the city, as well as it being the home to some of the best DJs, artists and clubs the scene has seen. So big up yourself London!

iN TECH vol 7: Ghetto House Mix

East Recordings label boss Pablo del Monte started up a podcast series called iN TECH earlier this year to showcase his mixes on the tech-ier side of house music. The series is up to volume number 7 by now with this particular DJ set focuses on Ghetto House, a tough, fast genre of house that emerged from Chicago in the 1990s with DJ Deeon at the forefront of this style.



DJ Deeon, of course, came to our attention again last year with Lee Walker’s smash hit ‘Freak Like Me’, the original version of which sampled the vocal from a Deeon track. It’s an interesting back story with Mile End Records, the label Walker was signed to, licensing his version to Defected Records. Simon Dunmore, the head honcho at Defected, is a smart business man and realised that if they released the Walker’s original version they would be breaching copyright and all of the money would go to DJ Deeon. So they arranged for the vocal to be re-sung by sample re-creation company Scorchio, who not only got the new vocal sounding exactly like the original but also brushed up the Lee Walker’s mix-down. The whole process took a year, apparently, but it was worth the wait because ‘Freak Like Me’ was the top-selling house record last year and made Lee Walker hot property as a DJ.
