When you think of prolific producers to come out of San Francisco and the Bay Area, names like Miguel Migs, Mark Farina, Jay-J, Fred Everything come to mind. There’s one more that should be added to that list, namely DJ/Producer, Julius Papp. From his very first gig in 1987 to touring with Migs at the famed Salted parties, to countless releases on many labels including King Street and his own NeoDisco imprint, he now returns to us on this fourth installment of A Long Hot Summer. With the first being compiled and mixed by Balaeric producer Kiko Navarro and subsequent yearly comps by Chris Brann (Ananda Project, Wamdue Project, P’Taah) and Brazilian DJ Meme, Julius Papp comes on to seamlessly blend twenty of the most beautiful tunes in the catalog to create a lush and sensuously rhythmic journey for the long hot days ahead. Tunes like Frankie Feliciano presents Real Thing, “Stalker Track,” Dennis Ferrer feat. Bola Belo “Dem People Go!” (Kruse & Nuernberg Remix), From P60 with Lisa Shaw “Magic”(Jarred Gallo Remix), Chieko Kinbara feat. Josh Milan “Just Like Love” (Charles Webster Main Remix) and “Higher Love” (Souldynamic Vocal Dub), Kerri Chandler “Hallelujah” (Robosonic Remix), Tuccillo & Kiko Navarro feat. Amor “Lovery” (Yoruba Soul Mix), Ananda Project feat. AK “Heaven Is Right Here” (Danny Krivit & Dazzle Drums Mix) and his own cuts, “Groove Asylum,” “Round In My Mind,” “Your Life 2013” and others will help get your summer groove on. As quoted in Resident Advisor Julius states, “When I DJ, I like to go on a ride. I don’t like to stay in one groove for too long. I like to be eclectic in my musical selection, incorporating various styles.” With this eclectic culmination in mind, he developed a smoother edge, a deep soulful style of House that continues to define the San Francisco sound.”… and he does that oh so well on this stunning new comp.
