“Head in the Clouds: a Discohouse dream”

We've tagged this week's selection 'Head In The Clouds' to signify that warm feeling of being lost in the sublime ecstasies of deep house and disco. Artists like Linkwood, Trus'me, Actress and Move D have shaped a sound rife with the influences of Chicago and Detroit's disco/house heritage and a love for the particularly "deep" end of that spectrum. The artists here are tied together by a general love of slower-paced grooves, a predilection for vintage analogue synthesizers and a rarified, refined and often elegant dancefloor spirit that moves us like few others. Tracks like Daniel Wang's classic 'Like Some Dream' perfectly capture that fleeting feeling of rapture, while Polmo Polpo's glorious Arthur Russell tribute 'Kiss Me Again and Again' extends that indescribable moment to infinite horizons (well, 20 minutes anyway), leaving Linkwood's 'Pumpernickel' to make use of spaced-out studio dub techniques to capture that cosmic fantasy feeling. One might accuse these artists of simple retro-fetishistic tendencies, but the sincerity and highly skilled execution with which they're crafted makes these sublime tracks just as delectable as those made by the pioneering producers which they reference...

“Way nice...”

Nice job guys, this really works! From the delicious Deepchord/Echospace style bassline on the opening Steve Hitchell joint, to my main man Move D, through all these other deep and sultry house soundscapes (nicest discovery: Linkwood), the thing really hangs. I think I'm gonna need to check out these selections a little deeper than just a sampler tho! Tanx.

“Trus'Me”

Forgot to mention, there's something in the fun-loving groove style of Trus'Me that kind of brings to mind Adventure Time (whom you guys smartly included in one of the previous selections). We need more music like this...eclectic but with the groove in the pocket, seriously put together but easy goin', skanky but not dumbed down. Love it.

“"It reminds me of painting my robot..."”

“Please stop!”

Your 14 tracks are just to tempting - I have to buy every single one. The only way I could explain my resulting poverty to my girlfriend was to tell her I am having an affair! This can't continue...ok just one more. My suggestion is for some more proper shoe-gazing electronica - B.O.C, Move D, Apparat and loads more I haven't heard of before!
