Todd Gardner aka Todd G helms Cerecs Records, a New Jersey imprint that’s probably worthy of more props than it’s currently receiving. Much like their friends in The Big Apple at Novel Sound and Deconstruct, they maintain a veritably underground stance and prefer instead to let the music do the talking. And like the aforementioned labels, they may propel themselves further in the direction of the spotlight sooner rather than later if their latest offering is anything to go by.

The EP in question is a remix package of Brothers’ Vibe’s classic hit, Feelin’ House. It sees three producers jump aboard, with each one spinning their own take on an underrated gem from back in the day. Easing us in to the release is the label head, Todd G, who supplies not one, but two remixes. The first sees him opt for a bouncing tone, the second is more infused with melodic tinges. Both keep the original’s celebrated vocal intact, but it’s the latter of the two that just about shades it for me thanks to its heady, dream-inducing qualities.

Another east-coaster, Jason Brookes, then calls the shots on the next of the remixes. His version is expectedly tight, and in spite of its ‘Futuro‘ remix title, it’s actually far more indebted to vintage soundscapes, as the drum machines play a particularly pertinent role. Blaqwell’s remix sees a host of tin-pot percussion come to the fore, as the intensity of the drums becomes more prevelent alongside the dramatic chords and the galactic synths. This is house music wait some stature and weight: if you’re a true fan of the genre, you’re sure to find something that’ll tickle your earbuds here.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
