With the clubland sound of 2014 set to be heavily-tilted towards deep house again and with deep and underground dance music festival Eastern Electrics pitching up in Hatfield, Pure Deep House 2 is certainly well-timed.
In fact the zeitgeist triple CD compilation, which features deep, soulful and proggy tribal tunes guaranteed to get you moving and locked into a groove, is positively riding the crest of a wave from Las Vegas to Ibiza, with Miami in-between.
With remixes by MK, who starred at Eastern Electrics in Knebworth Park last year and whose tracks are sure to feature when the festival returns for a one-day spectacular at Hatfield House on Saturday, August 2.
Big tunes by Disclosure, Rudimental and Klangkarussel offer some dancefloor dynamite.
Classy tracks by Hot Natured, including that staple of Eastern Electrics ‘Reverse Skydiving’, and Doorly’s achingly funky rerub of Steve Silk Hurley’s ‘Jack Your Body’ provide real variation.
And fans of classics are also catered for with a killer remix of Inner City’s ‘Big Fun’, 1997 speed garage anthem ‘What You Want’, by Industry Standard flowing out of MK’s bang up-to-date ‘Burning’ and Nu-birth’s ‘Anytime’ also in evidence.
Beginning with the infectiously-uplifting vibes of Clean Bandit ft Jess Glynne’s ‘Rather Be’, the compilation is aimed squarely at the summer and I for one can’t wait.
