Leading lady and artistic talent Deniz Kurtel returns to Crosstown Rebels to explore new production sounds, venturing deeper into the realms of dub and beyond with The Fifth House. It's also with huge honour that the release includes a stunning melodic remix from highly sophisticated producer Trevino following his recent passing.
"Over the last few years, I've been cultivating The Fifth House both as a physical space and a state of mind, where I have joined my various artistic projects under one banner. Conceived from the astrological concept that life emanates from twelve terrains of experience, the Fifth House is the house of pleasure associated with creative expression and true love. This release is one part of a continuous journey where I explore new sounds and creative territories, which I developed simultaneously with an art and music space of the same name in Brooklyn. I am honored to have met Trevino through his remix of The Fifth House, and deeply saddened by his recent passing. Massive respect for this beautiful talent." - Deniz Kurtel
