Click Therapy
 reach their tenth installment with an EP from label head Lee Guthrie, this time with 3 simple but effective stripped back grooves that marry influences from the UKs Midlands and tech house scenes with US west coast flavours. As a celebration of the label’s tenth release they employ the services of Berlin-based, Italian duo, Minicoolboyz who have appeared on Dubfire’s Sci-Tec imprint, Darren Emerson’s Underwater, Richie Hawtin’s Minus and Nic Fanciulli’s Saved.

Lee Guthrie’s releases under his own name and as Digital Dirt have received a wealth of support from some of the house and techno scene’s biggest hitters during his label’s first year.  DJs such asRichie Hawtin, Layo&Bushwacka, Paco Osuna, Slam, X-Press 2, Luciano, Stacey Pullen, Terry Francis, Nathan Coles, Inland Knights and many more have supported his work.

Remixers Minicoolboyz have a string of successful releases on their own Amazing Records, as well as the aforementioned seminal imprints Sci-Tec, Saved, Underwater and Minus. The duo have also put out a slew of quality remixes on respected labels Kling Klong, MBF, Harthouse, Material and many many more.

Welcomed to the Click Therapy stable with open arms, their take on title track ‘Do This’ is a great example of their studio trickery and shows just why they are experiencing the success and DJ schedule their efforts truly deserve. The pair enjoy regular support from the likes of Richie Hawtin (as well as releasing on his label and featuring on a Hawtin DJ Mag CDBeatportal have dubbed them his prodigies), Dubfire (“The future stars of electronic music”), Marco Carola and Joris Voorn amongst others, and their remix on this EP shows why.

Lee Guthrie – Bad Navigation EP (Preview Clips)

Click Therapy Recordings’ eighth release sees another EP from label boss Lee Guthrie, whose recent productions have been turning the heads of DJs including Richie Hawtin, Bushwacka, X-Press 2, Roger Sanchez, Stacey Pullen and Terry Francis.  The three-track ‘Bad Navigation EP’ has a distinct early 2000’s West Coast flavour – deep, dark and groovy with rolling percussion.

Lee reveals: “The West Coast sound was a massive influence to me in the late nineties/ early noughties with labels like Siesta, Tango, Moody, Doubledown and Electrik Soul laying down some of the foundations of the tech-house sound that we know today. Producers central to the scene like Halo, Hipp-E, Tony and Onionz were also massive influences, releasing music that appealed to both the deep house and tech house/techno audiences and championed at the Tyrant nights at The Bomb and Fabric.”

The sound’s ability to fuse house and techno, forged its way to become the main sound of the DUBDUP parties that Lee co-promoted in the noughties.

This record points heavily towards those influences whilst still holding a modern tech-house edge in ‘Bad Navigation’ and ‘That’s Debatable’. Lee always likes to keep one of the tracks deeper on each EP and ‘Soul On The Dole’ is the cut this time around. 

As Click Therapy continues to gain pace, there are plans in the pipeline for a series of remixes from some well established artists when the label celebrates its tenth release this winter.
