Future House Gems - May 2010

Some futuristic house gems for your May playlist.

Orlando Voorn, Tomas Jirku, Nice & NastyOrlando Voorn - Angles (Remixes Part 3) (Nice & Nasty)
This record was fantastic the first time it came out, and the 2nd, and now on its 3rd with the best remixes yet. Japanese techno mainstay Itokim does two mixes, both of which hit the spot in a more housey groove than usual from him but still with superb musicality and funk which befits the almost Spanish vibe of the keys. The Itokim Stripped Down mix in particular is badass. Canada’s Tomas Jirku turns in one of the most bad-shit insane 10 minutes of house you’ll hear all year – full of his trademark editing, cut-up snippets and distorted clips which is as twisted as you like. Not for the faint hearted or circuit DJs. Orlando Voorn at Junodowload

Nicole Moudaber - Dirty Secret E.P. (Rawthentic Music)
Nicole Moudaber is on a string of quality releases along the dark, techy tip. The original of ‘Dirty Secret’ tops it with a late-night rolling groove which has a sort of old-school Peace Division vibe to it. M.in & Patrick Lindsey’s remix is the killer here. It’s a solid, dark production which is bass heavy dance and sure to rock. Some quirky drum-loops and drop-outs keep it in the nu-tribal groove they’re known for. If darkness is your thing then this is a track for you.

Rudolph Palladino - Hotel E.P. (Indeks Music)
When you are dancing to track with a slutty female vocal talking about handcuffs then you’ll know it’s this release by French artist Rudolph Palladino. ‘Love Hotel’ has a pretty basic minimal groove but makes up for it in the vocal arrangement which is a cut up array of bondage and sex related filth. It is amusing without being overdone and would stand out in any set. The two other tracks on the EP, ‘Spanish Bazar’ and ‘Terminal Stop’ roll out similarly minimal grooves with Japanese spoken vocal loops which do the job nicely.
