The Hype:

With over 25 years of House Music production, Eric Kupper joins the many producers that are classified as a true Legends. King Street pays homage to this man who has remixed 2 songs that have received the “Dance Record of the YearGrammy award as well as having worked on literally dozens of #1 Billboard Hot Dance Music Club Play dance records. On the King Street House Legends series, he finds himself in great company, with other greats such as Kerri Chandler, DJ Roland Clark presents Urban Soul, Mood II Swing, and Blaze on previous comps in the series. Eric Kupper wrote “The Whistle Song,” with former Director’s Cut partner and House King Frankie Knuckles‘ (RIP) most famous tune and it’s no wonder this master musical craftsman had been called on to remix Usher, Alicia Keyes, BT, Goldfrapp, Cher, Enrique Iglesias, Sheryl Crow, Korn, Moloko, Smash Mouth, New Order, Yoko Ono, Curtis Mayfield, Brand New Heavies, Afrika Bambaata & Soulsonic Force, Kate Bush, 808 State, Anastacia, Donna Summer, PM Dawn, and many others. His massive discography is derived from his work as a studio musician as well as a remixer. His work as a multi-instrumentalist and arranger has helped sell over 50 million records for artists such as Anastacia, Marc Anthony, Celine Dion, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Lopez. In the role of “additional production and keyboardsEric has worked with Madonna, Celine Dion, Destiny’s Child, Britney Spears, LCD Soundsystem, Coldplay, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Anastacia, Seal, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, Toni Braxton, Kelis, Jamiroquai, Depeche Mode, Eric Clapton, Everything But The Girl, Björk, and David Bowie. As his productions are already championed by DJ’s all over the world including Louie Vega, Andy Caldwell, Kaskade, among many others, this is further proof this master of sounds can turn anything he touches to pure dancefloor gold. On this 20-song comp we pull together remixes he’s done for King St, such as STUDIO APARTMENT feat. Stephanie CookeOne True Love,” Ananda Project feat. Heather Johnson & Terrance DownsKiss Kiss Kiss,” Jamico feat. Jackie CohenSometimes,” and Urban SoulWhat Do I Gotta Do.” We also see choice cuts from his revered Electrikiss album released in 2009 like “Star Light” and “Stargazer” as well as the renowned production styles he lent to remixes with Frankie Knuckles as Director’s Cut like Namy & Kathy BrownNot This Time” and DJ Vivona feat. Joi CardwellReturn to the Love.” One thing’s for sure, DJ sets and dancefloors worldwide have been made better because of men like Eric Kupper; forever a class act.

The Hype:

The Deep. The Tech. The Deep In Tech. These are the sounds we love and

love to share with you. This second volume in the series has 27 of the

most varied remixes, some of which had been leaked out on the samplers.

Be they coming from lands far & wide or taken from catalog classic or

brand new & unreleased, they’re all here and are sure to give good

groove. Australian producers Shades of Gray kick off the comp with a

vibey loop track “Up All Night” and goes into the more heady & spacey

“Mister K” by french producer Didier Largemain & Moodymanc‘s Dub of

Tomoki Tamura “The Rough.” The comp dips into bigger energy tunes like

Mihalis Safras‘ “Moon Spread,” and revisit some familiar classic

territory with Kerri Chandler‘s awesome “So Let the Wind Come,” Quentin Harris‘ “Slow Velocity,” jOHNNYDANGEROUs‘ “Mr.V’s Revenge” (K&N Dub), Dennis Ferrer‘s “P 2 Da J” (Tiger Stripes Remix) and Echologist‘s “Strut.” The comp taps into a few other styles like the funky “Shroom Day” and the Latin-esque “Universal Chant” by Dutch producer Rancido & cucumber cool “Any Day” instrumental by Italian star producer Ivan Iacobucci. Speaking of star Italian producers, Doomwork‘s Remix of

Supernova’s “Energizer” is nothing short of cool funky tech.  These tunes

go so deep you might just slip into another dimension. Including 2x continuous mixes by New York based DJ and King Street very own, NoonStar.

The Hype:

Nite Grooves is putting out some gems on this second installment of Deep in Tech EP.  Some of the illest producers to hit the current deep/tech house scene like Italian Londoners, Dzeta N’Basile, who come correct with “Gotta Release Yourself,” while producers Nil By Mouth offer a stripped down suave-laden spoken word on “Sacral.” Australian producers Shades of Gray give us a zappy techie disco number with “Up All Night” and Spain producer Alfonso Ares ramps up the tech funk on ” Funny Jew Harp.” Italian producer Guido Nemola puts a rolling funky rhythm remix to Chronophone‘s “Voce De Sa Trincha,” and we’re happy to welcome back Russian producer Underset who lays out some of that good old techie tripped out funk on “Gonza.” Rounding out this mini-album are Romanian producer Prosix, who has David Glass‘ remix his “Abused” and finally, an all out house track, “It’s My Turn” by Toronto’s Nathan Barato. You’d be hard pressed to find so many producers from so many corners of the globe on one sweet collection but lo & behold, it’s here. Very worldly and so welcomed on the dancefloor.

The Hype: Here Russian producers PRT Stacho & Underset collaborate with vocalist Ange on this dark progressive entity called Empty World.This EP includes all mixes from previous Empty World EP and super dope remix from the house master Eric Kupper. His remix gives a tribal bounce to its original yet organizes the deepness groove well together. The buzz about this track already starts spreading among the scene. The original mix would be a perfect fit of the major motion picture Underworld its darkness is very fitting. Alex Roque & Marcelo Vak however bring it up a few notches with their remix. They dont fail to keep the darkness within their mix but it definitely would sound fierce in a big room. DJ Keiichiro brings on a pulsating drum kick with a techier edge.
