Review: Previous offerings on No Fuss have featured the likes of Saison, Crispin J. Glover and Dean Zepherin, and now the upfront house label brings together another selection of party heaters from a range of producers. Saison makes a welcome return with the feisty "Till The Day I Die", a richly produced vocal jam with plenty of uptempo shuffle in the drums. Risk Assessment lean on the keys to create a melodic mood on "I Don't Understand" and then Saison does it again with the bright and breezy "The Riff". That leaves it to Natasha Kitty Katt to finish things up with the heavy funking disco licks of "Plenty Good" - a get-down cut for all seasons.
Dennis Ferrer - "Hey Hey" (Riva Starr Paradise Garage club mix)
Ferreck Dawn - "By My Side" (feat Anthony Valadez - extended mix)
John Summit - "Deep End" (extended mix)
OFFAIAH - "Play It By Ear" (club mix)
Review: Given that Defected's multi-arist EP series was designed as a way for vinyl DJs to get hold of some of the imrpint's biggest digital download hits, you'll be unsurprised to learn that volume nine contains some seriously sizable material. Riva Starr kicks things off with a remix of Dennis Ferrer classic "Hey! Hey!" that turns the track into a Moroder style electro-disco throb-job, before Ferreck Dawn delivers some big room vocal house pleasure. Over on the flip, John Summit's "Deep End" is another beefy big room workout built around sweet female vocals and a thickset bassline, while Offiah's "Play It By Ear" is a 21st century update of the muscular, mid-90s MK sound.
Sound Of Joy - "Can't Fake The Feeling - feat Virag (Souxsoul remix)"
Vertigini - "We Never Part"
HP Vince - "Sexy Music (Danny's Disco reprise)"
Review: Cruise Music presents Vol.3 of the best selling tracks. The pack starts with Mark & Danny's "It's My House", one of the best tracks since the beginning of the label, while A2 is super groovy remix from Souxsoul. Flip side brings one of our favorite tracks ever "We Never Part" and HP Vince's Sexy Music in Danny's Disco Twist.
