This summer sees Bulletdodge main man Gareth Whitehead release his long time in the planning debut album. `The Brood' features a veritable who's who of house and techno. From pioneers who helped shape the sound of early Detroit, Chicago, New York and UK scenes in the late 80s and early 90s to new pan global producers who represent dance culture's ever growing reach, we find an album brimming with talent and collaborative ideas.

UK house stalwarts X-Press 2 were chosen because of their continued output that not only raised the profile of house in the UK but to the world at large as well as harder techno producer Ben Long from the Space Djz and the Detroit Grand Pubahs. Similarly, it was crucial to showcase not only the originators but the new breed of talent. Inxec and Andy Slate were chosen for their hard work and commitment to the current scene. There's an abundance of great new artists emerging and it was integral to the albums concept to work with those who have appeared on ...
