DHA Mix #300 By Spoetnik

Amsterdam’s Spoetnik is best described as a purveyor of  undeniable groove. The artistic project of the city’s club shelter staple, the sound of Spoetnik draws its influence from across the musical spectrum – from dubby and rousing, to tribalesque and organ-churning house. Think of it as a tour the best of classic-era House has to offer from late eighties to early nineties New York, mixed with classic Chicago house and more contemporary Detroit work. On this exclusive mix, the 300th (!) on DHA, of rare and hard to find gems, Spoetnik gives all you crate diggers and starting point, describing it ... Read more

Premiere: Dennis Ferrer – Maniac 3000 (Original Mix)

Good things come to those who wait’… Especially to those who wait for the next original Dennis Ferrer release on his imprint, Objektivity. ‘Maniac 3000’ is the second anthemic single from Ferrer’s much anticipated upcoming album on Defected, ‘Paranoia Aftermath’, to drop early 2017. Tapping into his techno-roots for this one, Ferrer has managed to create an unlikely union between the groovy techno drums and the suspense of arpeggiated synth line. In Ferrer’s own words the track was ‘an attempt to go backwards, to move forward’. “Maniac 3000” is available 29 September via Objektivity Soundcloud Artist Page [soundcloud url=”https://soundcloud.com/deep-house-amsterdam/dennis-ferrer-maniac-3000-objektivity-1″ comments=”true” auto_play=”false” ...

Iconic New York City Club Sets Sail In Celebration Of 15 Years

The world renowned NYC venue, Sullivan Room was forced to close its doors in 2013 due to the booming (lower) Manhattan real estate industry (sound familiar?), but that hasn’t stopped them from continuing the legacy set in place way back in 2001. After its founder, Sergei Skylarenko (aka SR Serge, Grass is Greener), launched a successful record label, secured alternate venues with similar aesthetics, and a slew of tribute events at the likes of NYC underground hotspots TBA Brooklyn, Cielo, Louis & Chan, The Raven, and The Tribeca Grand Hotel, it was clear that the legacy of the decade+ Greenwich ...

The third ever live recorded essential mix from the US will happen on 23 September with the one and only Seth Troxler taking the resigns from Brooklyn’s techno den Output. Following in the footsteps of Pete Tong and Richie Hawtin (Los Angeles) and Claude vonStroke, MK, Eats Everything, and Eric Prydz (Miami), Seth will also be supported by Dennis Ferrer, Eli Escobar, and Tong himself. For those unaware, Output (in my opinion) is New York City’s finest club. A no photo style venue on the outskirts of Williamsburg. With this Essential Mix’ first ever trip to New York, it also ...

Just witness as clueless correspondents battle through prolonged stage changes, ask revellers hard hitting questions like “what the drive was like from Long Island?” and demonstrate the proper way to put a condom on…a microphone.
