Do you want to know what’s up in March? The best of the best records to pick up, who’s dropping a hot new EP?… Well, you’ve come to the right place because the Deep House London team have been heads down, rifling through our promos to present you with our recommendations for this month. As usual there is some amazing stuff to check out, including bits from Kerri Chandler’s Madtech label, Apollonia, No.19 Music, Hot Since 82, SUOL and much much more… so carry on reading to find out exactly what we’re feeling for March 2015.
10. Ben Mono – Why? EP | Madtech | 29-03-2015 |
Ben Mono is back in the hot seat at one of his home labels, Madtech, following a smash of an EP on Low Steppa’s Simma Black just recently. This is more of the same dance floor orientated rudeness from Ben, hard-hitting, big bulbous basslines and skippy, garage-esque percussion all round. Boom!
9. PBR Streetgang & X-Press 2 – Cosine | Futureboogie | 16-03-2015 |
Really feeling this link up between X-Press 2 and PBR Streetgang, ‘Cosine’ is a easy going, drama-tinged affair, while ‘Key Free’ has a bit more of an upbeat, funky feel. Lauer and A Saggitariun give ‘Cosine’ the remix treatment with interesting results as you can imagine.
8. Meggy – We, Meggy EP | SUOL | 27-03-2015 |
This is a super cool collabs EP from Meggy alongside a great selection of musicians. Across four lovely original tracks she teams up with Soulade, Ardalan, Paskal & Urban Absolutes and Erdbeerschnitzel… We’re liking this a lot, Meggy’s vocals always sound ace and the line-up of collaborators really does the job. Fresh!
7. Walker & Royce – My Dream EP | Moda Black | 23-03-2015 |
Here’s a cool new two-track EP from one of our favourite labels, Moda Black. NYC duo Walker & Royce drop a warped house cut with the lead track, which is bound to fry a few brains when it’s played out. Meanwhile, the flip ‘Fur’ uses a similar sultry female vocal, but has more of a wobbly bounce to it. Classy!
6. Phil Weeks – A Man Needs A Woman | Robsoul | 06-03-2015 |
Paris mainstay Phil Weeks (or Phil Weed as he’s often called!) is preparing to drop his new album very soon, which is very exciting news. As a warm up for the LP he’s dropping this slick new EP featuring three badboy tracks, our fave being ‘A Man Needs A Woman’, an absolute gem with haunting strings, a soulful vocal clip and a smooth, groovy bassline.
5. M A N I K – Nightfall | Culprit | 02-03-2015 |
Our boy M A N I K drops a lush new release with his friends at Culprit, a label he has been down with for a long while now. This track features Eli & Fur and we love it, great vibes – the ThermalBear remix is a more energetic workout and ‘Joshua Park’ rounds things off nicely.
4. Hot Since 82 ft. Alex Mills – The Core | Knee Deep In Sound | 02-03-2015 |
The big man himself Hot Since 82 reunites with Alex Mills for this monster track (does he produce anything else but monsters?!). I don’t think we need to recommend this any more than that, it’s a killer!!
3. Steve Lawler ‘Call Of The Cuckoo’ EP | Leftroom | 16-03-2015 |
One of the UK’s most respected and hard working artists, who’s been around for quite some time now, Steve Lawler is still firing on all cylinders and seems to be going for it even more nowadays than he was back when he first started. This new EP on Leftroom is great, perfect dance floor material and highly recommended.
2. Diego Krause – Right About Now EP | Apollonia | 16-03-2015 |
Diego Krause has been on our radar for a little while now – his releases via Unison Wax have kept us on our toes. Now he lands on Apollonia, which is sure to boost his credentials even more with fans across the world. A fantastic, well-produced collection of tracks with the title track ‘Right About Now’ our absolute favourite. Serious groove!

1. No.19 Music Spring Sampler | No.19 Music | 16-03-2015 |
Ahead of the pack by a country mile this month is this absolutely ridiculous collection of music from Canada’s No.19. We don’t even know where to start with the sheer quality of the tracks on offer here. Buy it, buy it, buy it! Stupendous.
