Mendo releases his ‘Let Me Tell You Something’


If you don’t know about Mendo by now, ‘Let Me Tell You Something’ about one of key figures of the house underground.  

The celebrated DJ, producer and remixer always goes big on putting on the cream of new talent for his world famous Clarisse imprint, now over 20 years in the mix, but equally loves to show everyone with an informed pair of ears how he’s still getting down with new material. Hot Creations, Crosstown Rebels, Defected, Rekids, Toolroom and Get Physical Music have all become Mendo hotspots over the years, but Clarisse remains where it’s at.

His latest creation (following ‘Single Ladies’ and the ‘Minimal Flavour’ EP) is the label’s trademark brand of deep house, this one with the feel of something tropical: it’s as if Mendo is bringing club vibes up through the undergrowth, stirring up something in the atmosphere below that you can feel before you hear. An electrifying soul vocal gives the track vitality to hold onto, reaching the conclusion that love is the answer in tough times and earning a standing ovation on the breakdown. Mendo then goes about sprinkling a pick-n-mix of sonic patterns across the beats – synth graffiti, tub-thumbing percussion – to keep the track slithering. Now go tell the world.

Grahame Farmer

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.
