Welcome to the 2014 Year End Countdown. This was the year of deep house, dominated by major labels such as Toolroom, Defected and Enormous Tunes. Many trends surfaced this year including increased 70s, 80s, and 90s vocal sampling, garage driven bass lines and funk fueled rhythms.
In addition, accompanying this countdown is a one hour radio show of the tracks mixed by Royski, which you can download or stream on our Soundcloud. Thanks again for all your support and cheers to 2015!
November has been a month filled with steady success specifically in the deep house and tech house arenas. This week we see all new names to the charts, spread out literally across the globe. Juliet Sikora and Chemical Surf top the charts with a club themed anthem. Dosem drops some techno knowledge off his new album City Cuts.
1. Juliet Sikora, Chemical Surf – What’s That (Original Mix) (Kitball)
Since releasing their Walking Back EP on Kittball, Brazilian duo Chemical Surf have demonstrated their indisputable work ethic in the studio with appearances on the likes of Miami Underground Records, Sprinkler, Lust Be and Erase Records. Collaborating with them is Juliet Sikora, Kittball co-founder and the heart and soul of the label. “Whats That” continues the theme of commanding low-ends, with a rumbling bass hook taking centre stage. This time the vocals have been left intact adding a sing along factor to a dancefloor commanding piece of four-to-the-flour house.
