New Ron Flatter on Katermukke comes with that crystal clear for-to-floor sound which have been developed as some kind of signature tune by the Berlin label. Ron himself is back after we haven’t heard of him releasing any sounds for a lone time. Much appreciated to let the fresh tune drop into our ears.

Longtime Kompakt affiliate and Cologne techno stalwart Michael Mayer makes his outing for the DJ-Kicks series on May 19 with an eclectic mix that includes Throbbing Gristle, Jon Hopkins, CSS and this hypnotic, percussive ambient house cut called “The Horn Conspiracy.”
Belgium’s favourite underground house DJ Red D celebrates the 10 year anniversary of his @Weplayhouserecordings label with a triple CD containing 34 tracks and a digital compilation containing all 34 tracks from the CD and no less than 11 bonus tracks. Including highlights from the label catalogue, many of which never before available digitally with new and unreleased material from San Soda, Locked Groove, Fabrice Lig, FCL (featuring Lady Linn), Kai Alcé, Kiani & His Legion, Maxim Lany, Tyree Cooper, Krewcial, Reggie Dokes, Ante Perry, label boss Red D himself and many more.
We Play House Recordings – WPH – is the work of Belgian DJ & producer Red D. Started 10 years ago to release the music of his friend san Soda, the label had (and has) the aim to release house music in all its shapes and forms. WPH’s house ethics date back to the days where house was just a name for music that was played in clubs. There is no such thing as tech house, no such thing as deep house or minimal, there is simply (house) music, good or bad.
We Play House Recordings is lovingly led by Red D (real name Bart Van Neste), one of Belgium’s leading underground music figures. Be it in his role as DJ, A&R, promoter, music panel host or general nitelife instigator, Red D does things with passion, humor and a healthy dose of keeping-both-feet-firmly-on-the-ground…with a twist…
WPH was started in 2007, so it takes no math genius to know that in 2017 the label is celebrating its 10 years anniversary. Running from the spring till winter 2017 this anniversary will be celebrated with special vinyl releases, a triple CD, a digital compilation, a Spotify playlist and a series of label nights all over Belgium and beyond. True to form the compilation will have WPH classics but also a BIG bunch of new material from core artists of the label like Locked Groove, San Soda, Kiani & His Legion, Fabrice Lig and many more.
WPH 10 Years Facts
– A triple CD, a digital compilation, a Spotify playlist & 6 vinyl samplers
– 45 tracks: 26 from the back catalogue (many of which vinyl only until now) and 19 brand new ones
– Label nights & stages throughout 2017 at Ampere (2nd June), Fuse (fall ’17), Tomorrowland (28th July), Charlatan (14th July), Forty Five (14th October & 9th December) and many more.

We told you there is a part 2 after the phenomenal Part 1 we brought to you in April
This second part EP takes off with Fred Everything & Hollis P Monroe’s “Jessie’s Couch”, which brings back a two step groove with this classic Detroit atmosphere that cannot help but pull you in. This future classic’s warm bass and moody pads guarantee the track a long life still to come.
Next up we have our very own Larse’s “Haunted” with a deep, dark, sexy and forward drive. This 90’s inspired jam reminds us why we love Larse so much. With a powerful bassline and great female vocal sample this tune will not leave our record case for a while!
Then we have TrueSelf’s “Next Chapter” featuring Atjazz. This track is a perfect example to the talk of breaks and UK garage infused house music having a comeback – if this tune is anything to go by they are right! TrueSelf even dives back into broken beats to bring us this beauty.
Till Von Sein is back doing, what he does so well. “Venao Jam” is another deep repetitive beauty. Till’s expertise with percussions and groove makes this track ready for the summer.
Black Loops’ “Climax” with its killer bassline drives this track forward, driven by a 90s-hiphopish sample and bright summer chords. We can’t wait to hear this at festivals and open airs around the globe.
Jacob Korn’s playful ravish track „On The Move“ is a testament to his unique and diverse styles. It’s a journey into the producers mind.
release date: May 26th, 2017
