DescriptionTen years on and still Steve Bug‘s highly influential and accredited Dessous
imprint burns the midnight oil with heat, passion and ingenuity. Having released exquisite and high-qualitiy underground club music for a decade, Dessous holds a rightful place amongst Germany‘s top labels. Alongside Poker Flat and Audiomatique, it remains to be Steve Bug‘s outlet for the deeper and more rejoiceful side of his never-ending affair with House Music.
Dessous‘ unique angle on house music is clear, from its classic, inspiring
cuts like Frankman‘s ‚Make it Rough, Make it Smooth‘ or Martin Landsky‘s ‚Wild‘, to totally modern, electronic dancefloor jams like Tanzmann & Stefanik‘s remix of D‘Julz - ‚Berlingo‘, or Ryo Murakami‘s ‚Monument‘. The label is simply in a league of its own, and this compilation
celebrates its wonderful 10 year anniversary, with 20 full tracks and a bonus mix by none other than US Deep House legend Kevin Yost.
There‘s a wealth of delights on display, be they new or old, obscure or pure hits. Every track has their place, a message, a story, a piece of art and a mark in time. Besides the fact that the bulk of the material here is meant to make people dance, there‘s so much musical experimentation and freedom to be found, that its a proud and honest reflection of the spirit, power and magic of house music.
For the beautiful bonus-mix American Deep House and Jazz master Kevin Yost has pulled out all his Djing wizardry here in a spellbinding mix that showcases some of his favourites from the Dessous back catalogue,
including some very rare B-Sides and hard to find material.
Yost‘s work as a producer and DJ has seen him enjoy a long and continually
developing career in the spotlight. A talented jazz musician and composer, he turned to his love of electronic music, disco and house and began releasing some of the most respected and accomplished deep dance music ever made.
Yost recently released original tracks on Dessous under his mysterious ‚Nivek Tsoy‘ alias which explored the more minimal and experimental end of the spectrum, but his mix really celebrates his love for the deep. Yost shows off his track selection and mixing skills to no end, in this blissful, happy reminder of why house music can be so powerful.
