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.

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
A new year a new Suol Summer Daze. Suol Records gathers artists from their Suol family to put together tracks with that special sunbeams and summer atmosphere – soulful deep house music.
After some years of the compilation being released in the familiar format of an album with a tight tour de force of tracks, Soul-Team decided to try with a new form – this issue will be a series of 3 compilation EPs. Now you have to buy 3 pieces instead of one. Business call this upscaling. Each EP will therefore consist of 6 previously unreleased tracks from both Suol and the extended family.
This EP takes off with Atjazz’ “Programme Sunlight”, which is a trippy deep summer groove. Chopstick & Johnjon’s “Last Night” with a solid bassline and atmospheric build up. Then there is Matthias Vogt’s “Chanterelle” with fancy Jazz background and precise attention to details. M.ono’s “Wanna Give” serves a driving african groove, classic House piano riffs and vocal samples, a dancefloor pleaser. Carlo’s “Got Ya”, is Disco Funk is some infused House tune. In the blend of the crispy House music you’ll also find tracks of a more R&B like sound, with vocals and catchy hooks. As in the sixth and last track (for this part), Meggy & Tigerskin’s “Bygone Eras” show some groove and vocals to modern dance music.
One of the better compilations this year: Dessous Summer Grooves 4!
This collection of the latest Deep House gems is compiled by labelhead Steve Bug himself. Artists like Ivan Latyshev, Jamie Anderson & Owain K, Langenberg and more are featured along with remixes by Atjazz and James Dexter. Without a doubt, you have to feel the warmth and summer vibes coming right out your speakers.
Remixes von Liveacts sind ja immer so eine Sache. Da stehen die Leute dann im Club und warten auf den Hit der letzten EP und dann verwurstelt dieser doofe Liveact die Nummer diesmal einfach anders. Ja, auch Paul Kalkbrenner soll das schon gemacht haben. Bringt man dann aber gleich eine ganze Remixcompilation raus, dann wird die Sache schon interessanter. Wenn das veröffentlichende Label dann auch noch Moonharbour und der Act Ekkohaus heißt, ist das Ganze eigentlich ne sichere Bank.
Mit Kerry Chandler, Jesse Rose oder Sven Tasnadi lässt man sich in Leipzig auch nicht lumpen und holt sich soliden Support. Mal sehen, wie viel davon live zu hören ist. Pumpen tut die Scheibe allemal.
Da bringen die bei Get Physical so eine Newcomer Compilation (Tracks) raus und dann ist nahezu jeden Nummer ein Bringer. Zugegeben der Output bei GPM ist zwar hoch aber unserer Meinung nach nicht immer auf gleich hohem Niveau.
Die Bryan Kessler Nummer jedenfalls groovt hier sehr subtil rum und gefällt.
