DescriptionLast year, The Scumfrog (aka Jesse Houk) returned to the global EDM stage with 12 new tracks, mixed together in a tailor-made DJ mix called "A Place Where We Belong”. The individual tracks were released by various prestigious labels such Armin Van Buuren's Armada, Umek's 1605, Prok & Fitch's Floorplay, and more. Tracks like “In Love”, “Running” and his remix of the classic “The Sky Is Not Crying” quickly found support, not only from The Scumfrog’s long-time peers, but also from the new generation of underground DJs.
This year, the Dutch born American producer continues on his path, miles away from mainstream EDM, by completing a new, full-length album for Armada Records titled “In Case We’re All Still Here”, made up of cutting edge underground Deep House and Tech House. The first single from this album is The Scumfrog’s long awaited project with Sting. Since the beginning of DJ culture, Sting has been the voice of sampling-choice for many producers, and new bootleg versions of his popular songs still surface at an ever-constant rate. But an official Dance Music release baring the 16-time Grammy Award winner's name is rare. Last year, however, The Scumfrog received approval to remake "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You," and the amazing result of this long awaited project is finally here. The Scumfrog has been a House Music staple in the Dance scene, releasing records since 1999. He is mostly known for his underground flavored remixes of artists like Missy Elliott, New Order, Kylie Minogue, and Annie Lennox, his Grammy nominated collaborations writing/producing techno oriented works with David Bowie and Cyndi Lauper, and his own hit singles “Music Revolution”, “Serenade”, and “Escape”. With his versions of "If I Ever Lose My Faith," The Scumfrog returns to his deep house roots, while still giving the main vocal mix his signature mass appeal.
As a DJ, he has toured the world many times over, and since 2009 he hosts a weekly radio show/podcast Glam Scum International. https://www.facebook.com/ScumfrogArtist
