Hot new music: Dennis Ferrer, Kyle Hall
Just want to take the time to highlight some new music of note that has been heating up our decks recently(if you were at the Absinthe Lounge this past Saturday, you can relate) first up is the latest by NY based dj/ producer, Dennis Ferrer:
Dennis had a MAJOR hit last year with the tech-house monster, "Hey Hey" and 'The Red Room" is another track along the same vein that is set to be a stormer for dancefloors around the world...this has EXTREME "crossover" written all over it and will appeal to underground heads and the casual club-goer alike...
One of the remixers is 19 yr old Detroit wunderkind, Kyle Hall... which brings us to the next track in question which is a remix of hightly touted Manchester, England alternative-dance band Delphic (think Stone Roses).
Kyle's interpretation is rooted in Detroit techno-soul and he goes for the old fashioned "addition by subtraction" production technique, as he deconstructs the song and uses sparse elements of the vocal along with some pretty tasty muted drum patterns...21st century classic.
