It's been just over 10 years since LA Riots helped usher an era of dance music that became defined by the hedonistic and genre-bending sound of electro-house. There's no doubt that their influence had a tremendous impact on dance and they helped set the stage for a new generation of dance music creators. Their sound has evolved quite a bit in that time, adopting more of the classic groove of house music. 

"House Is A Feeling" is a snapshot of that progression. Melding a bit of the old with a lot of the new, the track is built on a bed of smooth silky Rhodes and a bassline that bends and stretches like the most limber of dancers. At the center is a slice of classic house that seemingly never goes out of style, a dash of the ubiquitous vocal from Mr Fingers' 1987 classic "Can You Feel It."

"House Is A Feeling" comes with a pair of remixes from Lucati and Fritz Carlton. Lucati, not surprisingly takes things a techier direction with a driving bassline and a thumping drum line. Fritz Carlton gives us seven minutes of heavenly synth grooves, vocal clips and eerie arpeggios.
