Happy holidays from the LessThan3 family! Tis’ a joyous season filled with tons of newly released goodies for all ye fellow house-heads and techno buffs, so we’re back with the newest edition of Dive Into The Deep.
We hope you’re ready to put aside those radio-friendly Avicii records and saddle up this week with some proper underground tunes, because we’ve hand-selected five delectable tracks to stuff your musical stockings.
You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry, you’d better not pout, we’re telling you why: deep house Santa is coming to town. Check out what he has in his goodie-bag below.
Shall Ocin – Forgive Me (Edu Imbernon Remix) [Culprit]
Hispanic house progressionist Edu Imbernon dons his impressive studio savvy once more with this electro-charged revamp of Shall Ocin’s latest single. Shying away from typical deep house tenderness, his vigorous rendition lays down a punishing, syncopated drumbeat, accompanied by aggressive acid attacks–the perfect dancefloor-heater for these cold winter months.
Marcus Worgull – Lenoix (Original Mix) [Innervisions]
As an exemplary European-based label, Innervisions never disappoints us with their profound abstractions of underground club music. Extracted from Marcus Worgull’s recent Lenoix EP, the poignant title track has already enjoyed vast support by the likes of Dixon and Lee Burridge–a secret weapon among all their sets throughout the past few weeks. It’s more than just a house record; it’s an electronic symphony.
My Favorite Robot – Centreofattentionaut (Kate Simko Remix) [No. 19]
Canada’s leading trio of deep house robots already invaded the musical community earlier this season with their glorious full-length album, Atomic Age, and they’ve struck again with the Atomic Age remix package. After carefully sifting through the release, we chose to highlight Kate Simko’s hypnotic update to MFR’s original vocal craft, Centreofattentionaut. Simply listen, and sink deep within her seductive, minimalistic stylings.
Pazkal – My Definition (Original Mix) [Moodmusic]
Wrapping up 2013 with a set of vocal tech house floor-killers, Berlin’s Moodmusic camp delivers the latest and greatest from Swiss artist Pazkal Meyer, the My Definition EP. We’re all suckers for those notorious, lo-fi bass pulses, and Pazkal’s lead single packs a plentiful portion. Dig right in, and feast upon the track’s infectious hooks and fluid rhythms.
Daniel Chase – Dark Eyed Murmur (Original Mix) [Headset]
Although a lesser known talent among the underground music scene, Daniel Chase gives listeners exactly what they’re pining for: slow-paced, tripped-out house grooves. Taken from his recently released Dark Eyed Fortune EP, the track Dark Eyed Murmur features a tight-laced backbeat, eerie chord layers, and fleeting female vocals samples. Undoubtably, it beckons to be played during late nights in dimly-lit rooms.
