You will be reading this either be ridiculously excited about Brighton & Hove Pride and in need of some tunes as you glue mirror balls to various parts of your body or b. in the Pride recovery position requiring something to kick start the rest of your summer. Either way let us oblige. First up is the classy deep and jumpin’ house vibes of 5 Years of ALiVE on ALiVE Recordings. It jacks and then it jacks again. Just what, er, jack ordered. As is Tortured Soul’s Undercover Remixes on Dome Records. Discerning house music, delivered by a stunning array of remixes from the likes of Eric Kupper and Fred Everything. If you like your techno and house stripped back to its glorious bass basics then check out Cocoon Ibiza mixed by Ilario Alicante & Alejandro Mosso on Cocoon but if you need your house fuelled by jack and deepness it has to be Rhythm Plate’s debut album Off The Charts on Lost My Dog Records. Cor.
As for our must-haves we have been spoilt with some real wonders this month. First up is the sensational Eskimo Recordings Presents the Pink Collection on Eskimo Recording. We fell for this wonder of indie dance, nu disco and electronica within moments of our first listen and can’t keep from pressing play. Essential summer listen. As is the right proper house present on Phil Weeks’ Crate Diggin Volume 3 on Robsoul. Never has someone’s crates delivered more gems. Finally we both bow down to Trax matriarch Screaming Rachel. Her compilation Queen of House on Trax Records encapsulates everything that is so special about house music and will deliver you a history lesson you’ll never forget. Gawd bless you screaming Ma’am. Have a safe and disco glorious Brighton Pride.
