This past month in house music proved that the best tunes don't just see the light of day in the summer anymore. Great, accessible house music gets unleashed all year long!
1. "ALWAYS" - RIVA STARR FEAT. JOCELYN BROWN [TRUESOUL]
2. "LOVE LETTERS FROM SICILY" - MATTHIAS MEYER & RYAN DAVIS [WATERGATE]
After their fantastic collaboration last November, Matthias Meyer & Ryan Davis look to rekindle the magic they created and do that they did. "Love Letters From Sicily" is an ethereal beauty that deserves heavy rotation at every daytime party between now and the the course of the next few summers.
3. "THE CAPTAIN" - DUSKY [17 STEPS]
Dusky's new E.P. is sprinkled with all kinds of '90s electronica including a little bit of some old-school style trance as is evident on the closing tune, "The Captain."
4. "AS ABOVE SO BELOW" - &ME [PAMPA]
Pampa Records finally welcomes &ME to their elite crew with a pair of tracks that will easily find their way onto many of the year's best-of lists. Including this ravishing ear-worm that I suggest you play very loudly and get lost to.
5. "IN YOUR EYES" - &ME [PAMPA]
&ME'S other wonderful tune on the package is the A-side which the general collective has found a bit more appealing.
6. "(IT HAPPENS) SOMETIMES" - JACK BACK [DEFECTED]
In the interest of allowing you to experience this absolutely massive tune without prejudice, I'll spare you the sticker shock of which superstar is behind this floor-filler on Defected.
7. "ROCKET TO LEE'S LITTLE CLOUD" - SEBASTIEN LEGER [ALL DAY I DREAM]
8. "DISCO LOCO" - RIVA STARR [TRUSEOUL]
The second victim of Riva Starr's fabulous new EP to appear on the chart is this filter-disco heaven he calls "Disco Loco."
9. "SWERVE" - ARCHIE HAMILTON & BENSON HERBERT [MOSCOW RECORDS]
Who knew minimal could be so beautiful?!
10. "THE TRUTH" - FRIEND WITHIN [TOOLROOM]
11. "SCREAM" - ILLYUS & BARRIENTOS [DFTD]
This floor-filler from Illyus & Barrientos walks a fine line that keeps the choon safe within infectious territory and out of harm's way from repetitiveness.
12. "TROMMELMASCHINE (MARTIN LANDSKY REMIX)" - DER DRITTE RAUM [HARTHOUSE]
In honor of Der Dritte Raum's 25th anniversary, the legendary Harthouse imprint is unleashing a remix package which features an obviously stellar Maceo Plex remix and this! A gritty yet pitched down update of their 1997 tribal explosion, "Trommelmaschine," courtesy of Martin Landsky.
13. "DOCTOR ZOUK" - JAMIE JONES & DAVID BERRIE [HOT CREATIONS]
14. "PAPILLON" - ARTBAT [FRYHIDE]
15. "IN THE DANCE" - ELI BROWN [TOOLROOM]
September's cherry on top is the boisterous four on the floor which is currently doing damage all over the globe.
