James Dexter - System Check EPUpcoming London producer James Dexter joins the Lost My Dog ranks with a four tracker taking in slow-burning deep groovers through to bumping, funked-up cuts.  His ‘System Check EP’ is a perfect representation of the sound LMD has pushed over the past eight years and another example of the label not being afraid to work with talented producers in the early stages of their careers.

At 25 years old Dex has already amassed a number of noteworthy releases including tracks and remixes on Om Records, Salted Music, Nervous Records, Beatdown Music and Static Audio.  His remix of Miguel Migs’ single ‘Tonight’ reached the number three spot in the Traxsource Top 100, with his own single ‘Give Me Something’ on Migs’ Salted Music not far behind. He has also recently released a track on Shades Of Gray’s Beef Records and has something in the works for Large, alongside remixes for Solid Ground and Bump Trax.

Already Dex can count a number of high profile DJs as fans – Fred Everything, Moodymanc, Karol XVII & MB Valence, Evren Ulusoy, Giom, CJ Mackintosh, Dale Howard and several more are all supporters of his music.

Shades Of Gray-All About The Drums EP (preview)on Lost My Dog

Shades Of Gray – the duo of Czech national Michal ‘Schwa’ Ruzickaand Aussie Nick West – have been turning many heads recently with their debut album ‘Soul Machine’ and the consistent quality of theirBeef Records imprint.  They certainly turned our heads here at Lost My Dog so we got them firmly onto our leash!  Their ‘All About The Drums EP’ contains four tracks of trademark deep and funky heads-down house including 3 collaborations, with Rodney O, Pavel ORM and Antsmif.

As the EP title suggests it’s all about the drums, and boy do they thump, snap, crackle and pop!  But its also very much about the bass which growls and drives when it needs to, and bounces along when it needs to.  The collaborators add guitar, synth and organ top lines to an EP that ranges from light and funky to dark and moody, while always deep and warm.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2012 by E.N.

Joshua Iz, the seminal deep house producer of Iz & Diz fame (amongst many other things) drops the inaugural release for San Francisco’s Dream In Audio imprint. An ode to his Chicago roots and San Francisco influence, the title track ‘The Figure’ is a hard hitting cut that is all Chitown, while ‘What U Like’ has a melodic edge that is reminiscent of SF circa 1998. This is deep house at its finest, from a master of the craft.

Joshua Iz is a DJ, music producer, designer and slightly better-than- average tennis player. He likes trainers, good design, dub reggae and vodka. Joshua has been DJing since 1986 and has played on 5 continents and been to 6. His music productions have graced labels such as Classic, NRK, Om Records, Nordic Trax and Seasons. He runs his own record label called Vizual which launched in 2010. He currently has DJ residencies in Chicago, San Francisco and London. Joshua also sometimes DJs and makes music with Diz as Iz & Dizand they are currently working on their upcoming debut album. Joshua also makes a killer salsa and is generally fun to be around.

Dream In Audio is a deep house label inspired by late the late 90s sounds of Chicago and San Francisco.

Miguel Migs – The System ft. Capleton (Om Records, OM537) (Preview )

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 17, 2012 by E.N.

Featuring dancehall legend Capleton‘The System’ was one of the standout tracks from Miguel Migs’ recent album ‘Outside the Skyline’ and captured the attention of none other than dub legendMad Professor who provides two remixes.  Other re-rubs come fromRob Garza (Thievery Corporation), Rob Paine and see the triumphant return of Migs’ Petalpusher alias, infamous in the late 90’s and early 00’s for releases on Naked Music.

Where Migs created a beat-driven, progressing tune on ‘The System’, Mad Professor halves the tempo, saturating the track with space reverb and dancehall stabs. Then the Prof takes things one step further with the dub – a stable hi-hat ride lights the way through an absolute haze of echo and vocal chops. Rizlas recommended.

The second half of the single sees Migs return to his Petalpushermoniker for a deep Salted groove.  Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza delivers a building synth progression and Rob Paine rounds out the remixes with a bouncing pool party clatter behind Capleton’s alternating growl and croon.

Miguel Migs has emerged from San Francisco’s deep house scene as an artist who transcends the stylistic limitations of genre in a way so very few have managed.  In his own words, “I take inspiration from everything around me. Its not about trends or what’s fashionable, its about creative expression, quality, emotion and artistic integrity.”

Shades Of Gray – Soul Machine (CD 1 Originals+Remixes – CD2) (Beef Records) (Preview Clips)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 25, 2011 by E.N.

Release date: Dec 5, 2011

After 18 months of intense work in the studio Shades of Grayemerge with their debut album ‘Soul Machine’.  The duo of Michal Schwa and Nick West have progressively established themselves over the years producing consistently solid tracks and remixes for labels such as Neurotraxx Deluxe, Om Records, Salted Music, Dark Energy, Tronicsole and of course their home label Beef Records on which ‘Soul Machine’ is released.

Released as a 2 CD set, vinyl and digital download, ‘Soul Machine’includes 11 original tracks and 11 remixes from an all-star cast including veterans The Timewriter, Jef K & Gwen Maze, Soul Minority, Fiord and Lexy (Lexy & K-Paul) as well as some of the hottest emerging producers such as Peter Horrevorts, Steve Ward, Uone, LuRob and Londonground.

Shades Of Gray was born following Czech national Schwa’s move to Australia in 2005.  He soon teamed up with local Nick West both in the studio and as a partner in Beef Records. They quickly gained a reputation as one of the hottest acts on the Sydney underground scene and it wasn’t long until they were touring internationally performing from Tokyo to Moscow and Paris to Prague.  With support from the likes of Shur-I-Kan, Miss Kittin, Jimpster, Pezzner, Laurent Garnier and Miguel Migs, SOG have clocked up over 50 releases including the sales chart topping ‘Moog in the House’.

The album is a definite progression for SOG, heading deeper into sampling territory and drawing on what’s come before to define their vision of the future sound of house music.  Reinterpreting influences from soul to disco through the sharpened lens of 2012 production, SOG have delivered a stunning collection of tunes that have that instant classic feel that will remain relevant for years to come.
