DescriptionMelbourne Deepcast has been flying the flag for the underground house movement in Melbourne and the wider dance community since it's birth in 2009. With a podcast that's quickly become one of the go-to places on the interweb for your fix of carefully selected deep house, techno and disco, there's but a few ears they haven't reached. Casting the net even deeper, a label is born, providing a platform for the ever-growing number of talent rich producers the city has provided a home for.
MD001 is the very first release on the new Melbourne Deepcast imprint, featuring tracks by some of Melbourne's leading, but still emerging artists. Lewie Day provides one of the heavier numbers on the release and proves that whether he's wearing the Tornado Wallace hat or not, he's most definitely on. Co-founder of the Melbourne Deepcast Andy Hart follows up the A side with some slower, soul driven house that pays homage to the earlier pioneers of funk. On the flip, Mic Newman adds a summery house number under his Fantastic Man moniker, a name we will all grow to love this year. Finally, new recruit (who isn't all that new) Weekend Express lays down a raw deep house chug, rounding off the EP with his signature disco edged groove.
