For May we have an exclusive 2 hour guest set from Stuart of NICETRAXUK. Regular listeners to this show will be familiar with Stuart, and the label he runs with Patrick Foley, which has developed a carefully curated back catalog of excellent releases with a firm emphasis on quality, both in the music, and the way it is visually and physically presented, and while the label does release digitally, it is evident that Stuart and Pat take great pride in being able to release their music on vinyl, for those who care enough to want to invest in quality.

Their last release, the Evans Above EP by Dubble D was in my top 3 tracks of 2018 and remains the only track ever to have appeared twice on this show. The theme of this mix has been built around the forthcoming NICE008 release and includes unreleased tracks from it. Enough from me, enjoy 2 hours of early Summer shaped by the sound of Stuart for NICETRAXUK.

With the clocks rolling forward the end of March finds me in a reflective mood with this summer marking the 8th anniversary of Kenny Hawkes' death. The recent re-issue of his track 'Play the game' including an affectionate tribute mix by Luke Solomon in the form of the Space Children extended love mix, has nudged my mind back to all those times spent in the dark with nothing but Kenny's late night alchemy to focus on, and how those were some of the best times I've ever spent on a dancefloor. Each generation, if they are lucky enough, will find their own Kenny Hawkes, an inspirational figure who carries the culture forward by sheer dint of their generosity and talent. I count myself as deeply fortunate to have known this one. So many wonderful cuts on this session but the standout tracks which I have to mention are the opening 'Ride On' by Ali Love and Kenny Glasgow, and the brilliant Daniel Ray remix of I remember Love by Glass Slipper.

01. Ali Love, Kenny Glasgow - Ride On
02. Eric Ericksson - Sea Point
03. Andy Hart - Merkin
04. Philip Budny - Somnambulism
05. Intr0beatz - Mandolinio
06. Black Loops, Nikos Haropoulos - 7Hills
07. Danijiel Kevic - Hold It Down
08. Meltronic - The Old Me
09. Glass Slipper - I Remember Love (Daniel Ray remix)
10. Chopstick & Johnson - Sometimes
11. Steve Hammer - Compose
12. Madloch, Subnode - Shadow People
13. New Jackson - By Its Own Light
14. Clavis - Boyd
15. Kornum & Karma - Fresh NY Talent
16. Boogie Rapture, Nathan G - In My Arms (Nathan G Re-Feel)

It's composed of some tracks from earlier in the year which I wanted to return to, as well as some newer material, and of particular note is the excellent Transmissions by Lawrence Dix, from his forthcoming 2 track EP on Oh So Coy due out in early December. Also included here is the beautiful selfless state by So Inagawa, whose much loved, and to date, only LP from 2015 is due out on repress in November on Cabaret so that comes highly recommended from me.

An extended set for August, inspired largely by a restorative few days in Rhodes where I came across a DJ called Loukas Toumpakis who played a nightly set of beguiling, snaking, trance flecked house which really hit the spot with a bottle of cold Debina. And so it is that the 2hr set assembled here is largely inspired by much of the music I heard during those heady evening sessions as well as other tracks which I feel fit the profile. One such track, Cosmic Clouds by El Sonido Project, who themselves hail from Athens, is also available as a free download from their soundcloud page so head over and give them some support. It was a revelation to discover this track being played by one of their countrymen in Rhodes and even more so to discover it was unsigned!

01. Ross From Friends - Wear Me Down
02. Lunga SA - 003 02
03. Emptyset feat. Cornelius Harris - Altogether Lost (Ripperton's Underground Kingdom mix)
04. Maricopa - Everyday Mysticism

13. Dale Howard - Pulsar
14. WillowMan, Will Wee, K-Zan - Give Me Five (Will Wee U-Man remix)
15. Arkadiusz-S - Deep Button For Me
16. Midnight Workouts - Loverman (Vincenzo remix)

After a hiatus in April owing to a wonderful spell travelling around southern Peru Deep Transmissions is back and rebooted for the summer. This episode features new and old tracks including a cut from the much awaited 2nd EP on Groovence, regular listeners may recall Bound to the Beat from the first EP back on Episode 73, well it's taken a year for a second EP to emerge so they're not ones for haste but the results speak for themselves with the quality of output they are achieving. Ron Trent also makes an appearance with his wonderful collaboration with Lono Brazil while the long overdue appearance of Dreaming About Tomorrow by Rupeski feat. Mel Blatt finds a home in the final third. I often find it pays to look back for inspiration in order to move forward and this was just the track I heard in my mind when looking for the perfect foil to Juju & Jordash's Neon Swing, another track I've long wanted to include in an episode and possibly the most laid back sounding 140bpm track ever!

01. Detroit Swindle feat. Seven Davis Jr. - Flavourism (Pépé Bradocks' Bittersweet Mix)
02. Black Loops - Higher (Matthieu Faubourd Remix)
03. Scott Diaz - We Reminisce
04. Jus Tadi - Set Free (Intr0beatz Relaxation)

2018 is proving to be an inspiring year already. Off the back of a guest mix from NiceTraxUK, and a February session crammed to the brim with incredible music, we have a follow up collaboration with Monosonics where we revisit what we started with Radio Eden Pt I, which is also available on both our pages so I recommend you track it down too if you haven't heard it. The mentality here is simply to riff on the revelatory feel of authentic late 90s Gallic house (before it became commodified and pigeonholed) but expand it to sounds which share that same 4am basement shuffle sensibility. That sweet spot in the small hours where you're so absorbed that the worldly preoccupations beyond those walls dissolve and you become a string on a bow, resonating with the music. I took the first 4 and 9-12 with monosonics handling 5-8 and playing us out from 13-16. Finally do go and check Monosonics here, he has a musical lexicon all his own and, as a fellow stalwart from the Bar Vinyl days where we played together in Camden each Saturday night, he's an authentic voice.

01. Honey Dijon, Tim K, Nomi Ruiz - Love Muscle
02. Llorca - All Right (S3A remix)
03. Soledrifter - Striking
04. Din Jay - Everyday (DuBeats remix)
05. Jaleal Meadows – Fly Away (BPM Instrumental Mix)
06. P.M. Project & Cee Ellassaad – Stay By My Side (Cee Vocal Dub)
07. Brame & Hamo – Clarence (Smooth Mix)
08. Rings Around Saturn – Abarth
09. Sandboards - Nothing But A Freak
10. From P60 with Lisa Shaw - Magic (Chuck Love Dub)
11. Matt D & Lukemberg - It’s Dub Baby
12. Reelsoul - 2morrow
13. Celestial Strangers – Refuge of Dreams
14. Tidy Daps – Rolling
15. Azteca & Bolivar – Living In Bliss
16. Adjust – Flying Dutchman (Diablo Mix)

Following January's excellent guest set from Stuart of NICETRAXUK comes the first installment of the year from me, and with it a reflective mood. Inevitably when doing something for a protracted period of time it can start to feel like a habit, and while music is one I'd never wish to kick, the process of labouring carefully over shows in the hope that they reach, and move people, before hitting 'publish' only realistically to send them off into the ether to be largely ignored alongside a million others each vying for the same slice of limited collective attention span can start to feel a little deflating. It all comes back to one question "why do you do this?" I'm prompted to ask this of myself having seen two other shows I enjoyed finish recently (Leigh Morgan's Urban torque and Doc Scott's Future Beats radio show), and at it's heart that answer has to be "self fulfillment". All the plaudits in the world won't vindicate the effort if you don't feel proud of what you've done, but if you truly feel, and enjoy what you do I think it's easier to be at peace with limited recognition/exposure as you've created it with integrity, which is maybe the key to any success you may find in life.  Anyway without getting too deep about it, this session has found me with a renewed vigour for the music, having delved into the past for some truly special tracks, Shadows by Nick Holder, and Soul Searching 3 by Rasoul, both long overdue a spot on this show. There's also plenty of sumptuous vocal action in the early part of this session. Oh and another first for deep transmissions, the first track to be played on two shows, Evans Above by Dubble D. It was on Stuart's guest mix and blew me away so had to include it here too. Be sure to support it when it comes out later in the month.

01. Nick Holder - Shadows
02. Shur-I-Kan - Kermit's Lodge
03. DJ Rasoul - Soul Searching 3 (Let Me Love You)
04. Nick Holder - Beautiful
05. DuBeats - Tender Love
06. Terri Walker - Missing You (Opolopo remix)
07. Iz & Diz - Little Universe
08. Sondrio - Versey (Black Loops remix)
09. Fish Go Deep - Song For Repaired Piano
10. Double D - Evans Above
11. Jimpster - Ceilings
12. Zepherin Saint - One Sound
13. Riski K - Vibes (Kostya Outta remix)
14. Anja Schneider - All I See

And so here we are with the first episode of 2018 and a bit special it is too. Regular listeners may remember that wonderful inaugural guest mix by Mark Hand featured last year. Well for this episode we have another guest session, this time from Stuart Partridge of NICETRAXUK, a label which he and Patrick Foley have been running since 2013, and which grew out of a shared love of authentic deep house music (before the term became so nebulous), and the desire to give it a platform. It was clear within minutes of talking with Stuart that he's a journeyman with an enduring passion for music, having started playing in the late 80s, Stuart went on to run the Tweekin records store in San Francisco for 6 years and in that time played with everyone from Mark Farina to Charles Webster. As someone who purchased a fair few releases on Tweekin it is with great pleasure that I am now able to shine a light on NICETRAXUK, please do check the label out on the links below and support this fine imprint.

As the finish line on 2017 comes into view we've another transmission clocking in at just shy of the 2 hour mark to usher in turkey time. No Bradley Walsh christmas covers here though, just a selection of all I'm loving right now, both current, and a little further back. Highlights are the Twice Movement cut, Bound to the Beat, taken from the hens teeth Cosmic Groove EP on Groovence out of France. Thanks to Thibaut from the label for hooking me up on this as I completely missed the 12" when it dropped and there are very few around now. Also finally got to include 'Lights Go Out' from the perenially superb Trevor Deep Jr, a constant favourite of mine. The KiNK and DJ Seinfeld tracks are also worth a mention, particularly as the Seinfeld LP which came out this month has been a contender for house LP of the year for me. This is the last transmission of the year so thanks for listening and here's to 2018.

1. Lukas Lyrestam - Hang Around (Powel remix)
2. Roberto Palmero, Matt Prehn - This No (Matt Prehn Dark Rub)
3. Twice Movement - Bound To The Beat
4. Erik Ellman - Ease Harmony (M.ono remix)
5. Scott Diaz & Max Footwork - There's No Time To Waste
6. Twolegs, Kaytronik, Karizma - Worth It (Kaytronik's Worth It Dub)
7. Kisch, Leela D, Alice Klark - Flame (Alice Clark remix)
8. Hyenah, Nonku - Phases
9. Jaidene Veda, Ursula Rucker, Nick Holder - Humble Pie (Inst.)
10. Phase Dee - Nightpath
11. La Deep - Savoury
12. DJ Seinfeld - Too Late for U and M1
13. Joyce Muniz - Mushroom Disco
14. Guri, Eider - Black Hole (Carlos Sanchez remix)
15. DJ Hell - Guede (Joyce Muniz remix)

This episode is an extended set reflecting all that's transpired since last month's. The inspiration for it comes from a perception bending 3 week trip to Vietnam and Cambodia, and the cover photo was taken 36,000ft above the Caspian coastal plains of Iran chasing a cloudless dusk. So much special music to chew over here from the latest release by Balaphonic (aka Moodymanc) through to an array of vinyl only tracks by Tobi Danton, Harrison BDP, Telfort and Malouane, and of course something a bit different to close the set out from Tee Mango. The first part of the mix represents some of the music which soundtracked a mesmerising, blazingly humid few days in Cambodia while the spine forages from more familiar territory to listeners of deep transmissions. Finally watch out for the 'Soulfuric Acid' EP on NicetraxUK due out in November exclusively through Juno, and which will no doubt feature on the next show.

1. Kareem Lotfy - Fr3sh
2. Four Tet - Two Thousand and Seventeen
3. Laurence Guy feat. Steve Spacek - Drum Is A Woman
4. Balaphonic - Sunflowers In Dub
5. Delakeyz - Our Roots
6. Leon Revol - Outside
7. Malouane - Discovery One 404
8. Prophets of a New Generation - Seek And You Will Find
9. Lil' Mark & Jcub - Epic 40
10. Telfort - Until Now (Julius Steinhoff version)
11. Harrison BDP - It's Foggy Outside
12. Dodi Palese - Slightly
13. Dwson - Luna
14. Tobi Danton - NYC Days
15. DJ Aakmael - Mood Capacity
16. Nils Penner, Johnjon - Multa (Johnjon remix)
17. Chromatic Filters - Slow Emotions (Fouk remix)
18. Demarkus Lewis - Ain't Nobody Else
19. Byron The Aquarius - Song For a Friend
20. Nachtbraker - Hamdi
21. Tee Mango - I See You Dancin'

Late in the month and already finding us contemplating the downswing into the rainy season, this session kicks off with the sumptuous opener from Dauwds recent LP 'Theory Of Colours' before traversing excellent new tracks by Closed Paradise, forthcoming on Fina, Stan Serkin, forthcoming on F*CLR, and the long overdue inclusion of the underground mix of Freedom Train by Groovestyle, a track the wonderful Kenny Hawkes pretty much made his own.

1. Dauwd - Macadam Therapy

Originally intended for release in May this one has taken a little longer than expected, owing in part to some last minute discoveries upsetting the order of things. I just had to include the lovely new remix of Vanilla Ace's Get It On by Scott Diaz. There's a bit of everything here, reassuringly deep out of the blocks, moving through accents of jazz and restrained disco via the AMIR and Vanilla Ace tracks, and then down into the deepest of subterranean recesses with Homepark, Nthng & Ben Sims.

These are troubled times but there's always respite to be had in good music, and along with love and compassion it's just about the finest gift we have to give.

This episode has been a little delayed as there were so many vinyl releases I wanted to fit in but now it's here there's a distinct nod to the past with some timeless material from Ron Trent, After Hours and Freeform Five, giving way to newer material from Marquis Hawkes, Rimbaudian & Lootbeg. Of special mention are the always essential treatments by Mark Hand, and Goshawk who serves up a gorgeous vocal production, 'My Heart', which will set up basecamp in your brain after the first listen. Finally a brace of crackers from Baltra, who I should have featured sooner, rounds things out.

Transmission#67 - Guest Transmission with Mark Hand

Back in March I did something unprecedented and approached a guest musician, whose work I had been avowedly into for some time, to see if he would be up for doing a mix for Deep Transmissions.

The man in question, Mark Hand, possesses a portfolio of exquisitely crafted music, with immaculate releases on Signals, Fatdog and Vicario records, alongside playing keys for King Bee, and readying a forthcoming second EP for Fatdog.

In spite of this, and his ongoing sound engineering engagements, he still found time to put this together which says as much for Mark as a person as it does a musician. So without further delay it is my great pleasure to share this very special guest transmission by Mark Hand.

You've had the wait, now enjoy the good thing.

Be sure to check Mark at the following spaces for more uncommonly good music:

Transmission#66 - Vamp

It's been a bumpy ride this year for regular instalments, but you know what they say about familiarity breeding contempt and good things coming to those who.. anyway to atone this extended 19 track set brings you what is very much a mix of 2 halves. The first one taking you on a warm, honeyed meander through an array of uncommonly good vocal house productions, referencing the deeper side of Tony Humphries inspired garage courtesy of Javonntte's 'These Words', to the melancholia of Derrick Carter and Salt City Orchestra's 'Got Change For a Twenty', which resonates throughout Ugly Drums' 'Change The Key'. Then, from around 40 minutes in things take a more hypnotic turn before coming full circle.

1. Ugly Drums & Lady Blacktronika - Change The Key
2. Roberto Rodriguez - Broken (Berger & Young remix)
3. Huerta - Mandala
4. Javonntte - These Words
5. Die Roh - Coming Out

Transmission#65 - A.M Revolution

After a couple of months hiatus we return with 14 cuts of the finest techno and progressive house flavours to have been doing it at DT towers! The Antigone, North Lake and Fort Romeau tracks are big favourites, as is the recent track by Sanna La Fleur, Waves, which has a prescription only bassline, clearly made for sweating in the darkness. Also worth a mention is D Bridge new recording, produced under his DBRM alias, a sumptuous meandering string laden epic which kick things off.

01. DBRM - The Third Room
02. La Fleur - Waves
03. Robert Babicz feat B. James - Narcoleptic Super Soul (Mr Glass & Peter Roots remix)

Transmission#64 - The Hush

This episode has taken longer than expected owing to a huge backlog of music which I couldn't ignore and as a result it is an extended set. Clocking in just shy of the 2 hour mark there's plenty to get excited about here, from a track off the excellent new Mark Hand Peripherals EP on Fat Dog to a forthcoming cut from Igor Jadranin on Ashley Beedle's Back To The World imprint which blazing a trail at the moment. Also worthy of mention is a mindblowingly moody new cut by Mike Khayata on the criminally obscure Departures label and a brace of tracks by Kevin Yost who always gets it right in my book. Enough chatter, ease into a set that marks 5 years of Deep Transmissions this month, what's that about time slipping by like quicksilver?

01. NY*AK - Goodbye
02. Bakradze - Sea Of Steps (HVL Space Edit)
03. Chronicles - Met You (M.K Clive's Deep Remix)

Transmission#63 - Radio Eden

A new year brings a fresh approach for the first intallment of 2016 with a meandering, meditative journey through the undulating furrows of late 90s influenced sounds, imbued with the echo's of jazz, disco and 80s synth by which they themselves were informed. A collaborative outing with monosonics, this one had a discernable broadcast feel to it, one emphasised by its broad spectrum of tempo's. Diverse, yet cohesive, this is a fond look back at a fertile moment between 1996-98, where sounds traversed the atlantic, and the channel to permeate the music being played in the sticky, smoky basements and bars from Camden to Brick Lane. Much of the music here is current but all are endowed with the spirit of that lineage.

01. G Mills - Lodeon
02. DJ Cam - Friends & Enemies
03. Martin Hayes - Broken Memory
04. Al Zanders - Endliffe Park
05. Sobrero Galaxy - The Edge Of Space

12. Waterson - Tell Me (Ashley Beedles North Street mix)
13. Chaos In The CBD - 816 To Nunhead
14. StudioHeist – Eden

Transmission#62 - Shadows In The Rushes

With all the distractions the festive season presents it was dubious as to whether this one would make it into the closing stretch of 2015. Incubated throughout a wintry interlude of Trevor Deep Jr sets, Ghostpoet at the Shepherds Bush Empire, and interminable traffic in grey sleet, this is best listened to while going nowhere fast under the sodium lamps of a city folding under its own weight. Setting a contemplative tone courtesy of a rare new Global Communication remix, into a stretch of meditative, acid influenced tech house before culminating in more soulful waters toward the terminus this one is a true journey and the last one of 2015. Too many standouts to cite without reproducing most of the tracklisting so I'll let you find your own moments within it. Thanks for listening and stay locked for 2016.

01. Dusky - Skin Deep (Global Communication Remix)
02. Tantsui - The Heart
03. Cherushii - Nighsteps

Transmission#60 - Pale Blue

The agony of choice has resulted in an extended set for the 60th outing of Deep Transmissions. With there simply being too much essential music around of late I've let the pieces fall where they may with 17 tracks moving through the kind of deep and dubby territory reminiscent of the releases put out by the much respected driftwood label in the 90s, through to throbbing disco influenced grooves from Franck Roger and Damiano Von Erckert.

01. Auji Industries - Galant
02. Deep Space Orchestra - Let's Save (Lord of the Isles remix)
03. Auden - Hunger
04. Sei A - Hypervenom
05. Iron Curtis - Care
06. Isolee - Favouride
07. Junktion - Pale Blue Dot
08. Paul Cut - The Joy
09. Dan Shake & Medlar - Walk (Soulphiction mix)
10. Chocky - Know

Transmission#59 - The Sentinel

Episode 59 takes place later at night than the last outing. Starting with the latest track by the inimitable Dave DK on Pampa records and easing into a couple of slow burners before moving into a more bass driven, stripped back soundscape. It always surprises me how, taken in isolation, a track may exhibit such a strong acoustic identity, yet when incorporated with others it can can seem transformed somehow. It demonstrates how context, and perception of it, is integral to how we relate to a continuous mix of evolving accents and moods. Turn this one up in the headphones and let it take you where it may.

01. Dave DK - Woolloomooloo
02. Downtown Party Network - Space Me Out
03. Maison Sky - Incline
04. M.ono - Volle Schnauze
05. Trevor Deep Jr - Believe Dub
06. Daniel Bortz - Steady Note
07. John Daly - Everlasting
08. Akase - Rust (Midland Remix)
09. Maceo Plex - Solar Detroit
10. Hackman - Grass Green (Orthographically Historialized By Timo Maas)

Transmission#58 - The World At One Twenty

As incessant showers herald the end of another fleeting British summer memories of an early year trip to Colombia return and with it a set of meandering, languid sounds which perfectly sum up that state of mind where you're too tranquil to get vigorous but too inspired to contemplate silence. Another largely vinyl only collection of tracks all centered around the 120bpm mark, this is the world at one twenty.

01. Ishmael - Cold Comfort Farm
02. Frank & Tony - Bring The Sun (Dub)
03. Hidden Spheres - Be A Man

Transmission#57 - Hot Darkness

Smouldering July sees 14 more mostly vinyl only cuts, this time courtesy of labels such as Tusk Wax, Puss, & Rose. Probably as deep as it's been for a while with no small amount of inspiration having come from hearing some astoundingly good sets from Trevor Deep Jr of late. If you're not already familiar with him do make some time to visit him on soundcloud, it'll be rewarded. The essential percussions edit of Hot Chip's 'Need You Now' is a highlight as is the mechanised soul fuzz of Marcellus Pittman's 'Razz 09'. Finally an inspired treatment of a well known tune rounds things out. A perfect sound track for the heat of the night.

01. Zed Bias - Music Deep Inside
02. Nachbraker - You're Out Of Your Element
03. Luvless - Away From Here
04. Jan Ketel - Girliewood
05. M.ono & Luvless - Double You
06. Marcellus Pittman - Razz 09
07. Brame, Hamo - Parish Rumours
08. Tony Lionni - This Feeling

Transmission#56 - Still Life

This episode is all about looking back while facing forward, with a focus on some of the incredible raw, warm house music being released on vinyl only labels such as 2 bit crew, HPTY and luvdancin'. Not only is the music here timeless in the sense that it could have been released in the 90s, it also embodies the continued devotion of small, independent labels to the magic of releasing music made with passion in limited runs on a format which has not just endured, but actively thrived through the prolific rise of digital convenience. In keeping with this spirit, and following a thought provoking conversation with Chris Sharp on mixcloud recently about how easily DJs can fall into a neglect of the past, I've included two long time favourite cuts from the late 90s. An incredible one off by Frank Le Fever and a throbbing floor melter by Didier Sinclair.

01. 2 Bit Crew - Untitled
02. Bicep - Celeste
03. Folamour - Brothers Since The First Day
04. 25 Places - These Moments
05. Kevin Yost - Walking Out The Door
06. 4004 - Nobody Rides The Rhythm
07. 2 Bit Crew - Untitled
08. Daniel Bortz - Hot In The Fridge
09. Bodhi - Polysizer
10. Vhyce - Hard To Find
11. Didier Sinclair - Lovely Flight
12. The Black 80s - Move On (Kollektiv Turmstrasse Mix)

Transmission#54 - Cartagena Social Club

A longer set for this episode with 16 cuts that I couldn't separate, so decided not to. Having spent the last week in Cartagena it would be remiss not to acknowledge the influence of that city and its relentlessly talented, warm and surprising people. There are so many great tracks on this one, the George Fitzgerald cut with Boxed In has been on my radar since the man played it on his Fact mix last August so it was always guaranteed a place on an episode but I think the Johanne Brecht cut, 'Another World' is possibly the standout in a selection of outstanding tracks. Big thanks goes to DJ NG also for the promo of his excellent Walking With Elephants edit. It won't see an official release so enjoy it wherever you can hear it. Top up, turn up and breathe deep.

01. Ambassadeurs - Willows Lullaby
02. Maribou State - Olivia (Mao remix)
03. Escape - Just Escape (Justin Martin dub)
04. Coeo - Closer (Lay-Far remix)
05. Woo York - The Valley Of Songs
06. Steve Huerta - Say It Wasn't
07. George Fitzgerald feat. Boxed In - Full Circle
08. Johannes Brecht - Another World
09. Django Django - First LIght (Ghost Culture remix)
10. Purple Disco Machine - Song For O
11. MIdland - What We Know (Motor City Drum Ensemble remix)
12. Fort Romeau - Insides
13. Flow & Zeo - Spin It (Webbha remix)

Transmission#53 - Off Grid

This one is all about the moody basslines, simmering and leering through the middle of the set following a brace of openers courtesy of Maya Jane Coles on the remix. The obscenely filthy Jalek by Ejeca from his excellent 2014 Contemplation EP signals a move into more familiar deep house territory for the final 10 minutes with a fantastic Goshawk remix of Joshua Iz's 'Like Gold'. Listen out for more to come from Goshawk (an alias of Rhythm Plate's) as there are some exciting productions in the pipeline from this seminal producer for 2015.

01. Pandora Drive, Karin Park - Hurricane (Maya Jane Coles remix)
02. Booka Shade - Love Drug (Maya Jane Coles remix)
03. Ashworth - Whatever Weather

Transmission#52 - Where The Tape Stops

First transmission of 2015 kicks things off with the lead track off the sensational latest 12" on Sleazy Beats Black Ops by Luvless, which, if the online frenzy surrounding it's release is anything to go by, suggests a pressing run which barely made double figures! A new cut by Frankey & Sandrino and and a shameless moment of hands up disco courtesy of a Hot Toddy remix which is long overdue an airing on this podcast. Call it straight up moody with a splash of disco. The photo is by Jean Pierre Lafont from his highly recommended Photographers Paradise: Turbulent America 1960-1990. .

01. Luvless - In My Arms
02. Frankey, Sandrino - Starchild
03. Klartraum - Diving Dancer (Ian Pooley Remix)

Transmission#51 - Polarity

Balance, equilibrium, cohesion. These are constantly recurring themes at play whenever a new episode takes shape. How to tame and shape a spectrum of contrasting moods across 14 or so tracks without jeopardising the journey. It's all about Polarity.

A warm and nostalgic feel to the start to this one, with the gorgeous Satisfaction by Bodhi kicking things off and setting the mood. An excellent Frits Wentink remix and a blistering piece of high impact, percussive 4/4 by Beesmunt Soundsystem stand out too. But it is the Kenny Larkin Detroit Mix of Inner City's Share My Life which is the centrepiece here. One of those rarest of things, a 20 year old record that has resisted both the 'digital revolution' (only available on vinyl) and still sounds like it could have been made this week. Timeless, classy house at its finest.

Special thanks to Joel Gillespie for letting me use his wonderful photo of Amsterdam in the snow in 1978. Visit his photostream at flickr for the narrative behind the photo.

This is the last episode of 2014 so have a great Christmas, thanks for listening and see you in 2015.

Transmission#50 - All This Night

Deep Transmissions is now 50 episodes strong and to freshen things up we have moved homes to libsyn, which now means all episodes will remain online to stream and download, no more archiving older shows to make space for the new. If you're new to the show welcome along, if you've found your way over here from podomatic, thanks for keeping with us.

This episode, while a little late owing to the move, takes inspiration from the recent Found night with Joyce Muniz and Maya Jane Coles, with standout tracks from Mia Dora, Ricky Tinez and a sublime track from that man Iron Galaxy whose attention seeker track featured on episode #28 - Hot One Five, was my track of 2012. There's a distinct whiff of sweat and amyl nitrate with some of the bigger tunes in the second half but the snare rolls and klaxons are kept firmly locked up.

This episode is dedicated to Gary, a long term supporter and friend of deep transmissions, get better soon mate.

01. Chris James feat. Ria Moran - Song For Her (Audiojack Dub for Ra)
02. Vincenzo, Minako - Just Like Heaven (Dave DK Remix)
03. Francis Inferno Orchestra - Ellingfort Road

Transmission#49 - The Edge Of Nowhere

One episode shy of the half century and one day shy of October, episode 49 takes a reflective path, with the first 30 minutes covering some deeper, warmer sounds from Kerry Leva, Feral & Stray, and the title cut from the lovely new colours EP by Peter O. The last half elevates the tempo and the mood with some incredible music from Moderat, Valentino Kanzyani and Eartone. If nothing else this podcast aspires to develop a coherent lexicon for expressing the sounds I'm feeling at different points along the way, trying to collate a faithful vision of that with so much excellent music to work with is always a challenge. Thanks for coming along.

01. Dauwd - Lydia
02. Friends In Paris - Waiting (Ashworth Remix)
03. Kerry Leva - You Lied (Chris Domingo Remix)

Transmission#48 - Ataraxis

It's been an inspiring month in house music, with stand out sets from La Fleur, at her Watergate 16 launch at Egg London, and Art Department along with Kerri Chandler who turned in excellent sets at the Eastern Electrics one day festival at Hatfield House. This episode continues in that spirit, firmly borrowing from the intricate yet immediate sounds which have been flooding my brain this month. Of special note is the Gardens of God track, 'Gluk', forthcoming on Ten Walls' Boso imprint, and the track La Fleur opened with at Egg, Midland's 'Before We Leave', which has become my favourite of 2014 in short order. A storming brace of cuts by Shenoda courtesy of his new who ver? EP on Man Make Music and the new 'Contemplation' track by Ejeca from his EP of the same name round out a set of 14 sensational tracks.

01. Alex Niggemann - Materium
02. In2Deep - On Rainy Days (Patlac Remix)
03. Midland - Before We Leave

Transmission#47 - Kismet

This sticky late July installment features some excellent vinyl only cuts and a deeper, dub influenced sound. Of special note are the Bodhi, Stump Valley & Leon Vynehall tracks and a gorgeous track from Andres called Hart Plaza which I've wanted to include on an episode for some time, the mood felt right on this one so it rounds things out.

01. Bodhi feat. George the Poet - My City

Transmission#46 - Cycle Of Vice

Twelve of the best for this set which already finds us on the cusp of June. Opening with an exclusive track called Distance from the Direction by Mark Hand, a big favourite of mine, and a man whose talent is rivalled only by his generous spirit in providing me with a copy of this new track, which is currently, albeit temporarily I'm sure, unsigned. Listen to Mark's productions over at soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/markhand. Also included is the Wehbba remix of sleepless by Joyce Muniz which has rewarded a wait going back to January with a release on Warung this month. The middle section toughens up with some pulsating tracks by Dj Boris & Julien Sandre & the NT89 track is another sensational piece of simmering, hook laden, deep house. Thanks also to Skyman1882 for turning me onto the DJ Boris track through his continually thoughtful selections which you can find on his mixcloud page over at:

http://www.mixcloud.com/simon-h/

Thanks for listening, let's get into it.

01. Mark Hand - Distance From The Direction (Dub#1)
02. Mashk - Last Breath (Solee Remix)
03. Lorca - Forgive Me Love
04. Rey Aguilar - It's Not Over (Nick Devon Remix)

Transmission#45 - Requiem

This episode is inspired by the recent Tale of us session in London, and features tracks from Ten Walls, Maya Jane Coles and of course Another Earth from their release of the same name. Kicking things off is a current favourite by Leon Vynehall from his excellent new mini LP which came out this month, followed by Cloud City by Powel, a track which I wanted to include on an earlier episode but which finds a fitting home here. The Ida Engberg cut, Silhouette of a ghost is a particular favourite, and is in my opinion the strongest track on her recent Devil Dance EP. Rounding things off is the pick of a burgeoning crop of Sade remixes from Vin Sol & Matrixxman with their edit of Couldn't love you more. This episode is dedicated to Frankie Knuckles who we lost last weekend.

01. Leon Vynehall - St Sinclair
02. Powel - Cloud City
03. Ten Walls - Requiem
04. Sandrino, Frankey - Save
05. Rachel Row - L Square (Adam Port Remix)
06. Casino Times - Principles

Transmission#44 - four four

For episode 44 the name took care of itself, and for the first fully fledged episode of 2014 (committed listeners may have picked up the mixcloud only session 'Equinox' from early Feb) I've consciously tried to avoid tracks which have been wrung out elsewhere regardless of how good they are, hence there's no HNNY 'tears' or Disclosure ft Mary J Blige 'F for You', 2 superb cuts, but ones which you can hear on any good podcast. So instead I've opted for tracks which may have glanced by without receiving the attention they richly deserve. The Mepham remix which opens the set is a firm favourite, as is the simple but absorbing Harlequin by Rootstrax. The middle 3rd fizzes with a dark electricity, before settling into some more delicate grooves courtesy of dt favourite La Fleur, and Porentief. Also included are 2 of my favourite vinyl only releases from last year by M.ono & Loveless and Steve Huerta. Finally rounding things off is the Wookie remix of Disclosures Voices, a 'big' track I couldn't resist. Hit play and immerse.

01. Ashdown - It Must Be Time (Mepham Remix)
02. Rootstrax - Harlequin (808 Dub)
03. Mat Chiavaroli - Before I Go
04. M.ono & Luvless - Auckland Joggers
05. Ferry Ultra, Nicole Russo - Live My Life (Sahin Meyer Lyons Remix)
06. Shall Ocin - Forgive Me
07. The Presets - It's Cool (Andre Bayer & James Grant Remix)
08. Santiago Santamaria - Bitter Soul (Cecyl Mix)
09. Vellico - Pennines

Transmission#43 - Plexus

For the first episode of 2014 I wanted to present my take on a 'deep progressive' house sound. The idea came about at the tail end of last year, born of a desire to try and recapture a glimpse of that sense of event inherent to those Tenaglia, or Digweed mix CDs which seemed imperious during those heady 'pre podcast' days in the 90s, when the CD reigned supreme as the format of choice for consuming DJ mixes. The counterpoint for this episode is transmission #21 - Rezin, but while that instalment also looked back to some of the classics from my lexicon of progressive 90s house, this episode is all about looking to the present and beyond with a blend of tough stripped down grooves from Dosem & Eric Sneo interspersed with harmonising layers from Navid Mehr & Devangel. It's also front loaded with plenty of melody as a prelude to the driving inertia of the final quarter.

01. Martin Roth - Beautiful Life
02. Della Zouch, S!lk - Inside
03. Tom Middleton - Wyv Auw Chu
04. Magshine - When The Stars Are Falling (Tvardovsky Remix)
05. UVO - False Forms (Khen Remix)
06. Li-Polymer - Sense Of Imperfect Beings
07. Matt Lange, Tania Zygar - Way You Know
08. Andrew Benson - Dope
09. Leo Kane - Epic
10. Dosem - Urban Shelter
11. Navid Mehr - 1984 (Andre Sobota Remix)
12. Eric Sneo - Go (Gabriel D'or Bordoy Remix)
13. Devangel - Phoenix (Adam-P Remix)

Transmission#42 - Solitaire

As another superb year of music draws to a close this episode delivers a mix of two halves, the first shot through with a contemplative melancholia courtesy of tracks by Lessovsky, Silk 86 and Youandewan, while the second half takes a more forthright approach with lashings of kinetic fizz from Mia Dora, Eric Volta & Adam Beyer, wrapping up with probably my favourite remix of the year by Paul Woolford who gives Disclosure & London Grammar a big room piano laden 90s house send off. The Superlova, La Fleur and Ishmael tracks on here are also big favourites of mine. That's all from deep transmissions for another year, look out for the top 10 playlist on Youtube and thanks for listening, have a great festive break, see you on the other side.

01. Lessovsky - Empty Heart
02. Silk 86 - Clear Waters
03. Youandewan - What's The Deal

Transmission#41 - Mode One

This episode joins a few dots, from an inspired retreatment of a Gil Scott Heron classic by Florian Rietze, which is available as a free download on soundcloud, to a couple of older tracks by Axus & Chris Malinchak via some pure deep house workouts from Peter Horrevorts, La Fleur and J Alvarez. Thanks to Jason Moss, one third of a sporadically high functioning machine, for turning me onto the Mirror People track. Love the fresh take on the sound by Last Magpie too, his recent AdLibitum ep on Hypercolour is thoroughly worth tracking down. Finally watch out for the most dangerous set of steel drums ever to grace a house track courtesy of Ninetoes. As mentioned on the last episode I will be archiving the older transmissions over the next few releases to make room, while I'll try to keep the full series up for as long as possible be sure to grab the older ones sooner rather than later.

01. Gil Scott Heron - We Almost Lost Detroit (Florian Rietze Tool)
02. Sebb Aston - Sell My Soul
03. Last Magpie - Still Walking
04. Peter Horrevorts - It Keeps You Movin'

Transmission#40 - Violet Psalm

As much for the head as the heels this one, 13 impeccable cuts to take us into the beckoning winter. High points abound with sublime pure deep house cuts from Leif & Kuba Sojka alongside punchy grooves from Whitesquare and Hobert. The Ten Walls track, Gotham, has to be a contender for track of the year for me as followers of Deep Transmissions on Twitter will already know. Joyce Muniz deserves mention too for her superb treatment of Maya Jane Coles' Burning Bright, always safe hands on the remix so search out her work on Exploited (or older episodes of this podcast) if you haven't already. Over the next few weeks I'll be archiving shows 1-10 so download them before they're gone, the entire archive will remain available to stream over at Mixcloud however. Finally for something a bit different check out the recent Transmission Ltd 'Hive Mind' on Mixcloud, which is where I post occasional sets which don't necessarily fit the template here.

Transmission#39 - Control Syndrome

As Deep Transmissions approaches it's 40th episode we're back on familiar ground with a set of 14 tracks that belong to the night. Copy Paste Soul, Codec, Alex Magno & Mistura provide some of the many highlights. Also worthy of mention is the excellent new track by Claes Rosen on LocalTalk, and keeping with the tradition of finishing with something slightly different I've included the superb Jonny Miller remix of 'Be' on Atjazz Records.

01. Billon - Hurt Me
02. Copy Paste Soul - Fly Away

 Transmission#38 - Moving On

Something quite different for this one, infact it was going to be a Mixcloud only set owing to the first 3 tracks falling firmly outside of 4/4 territory. Summer has clearly invaded my step and this was produced for the beach on a recent Caribbean session, but because I've been feeling these tracks so much lately, I decided to share it here after all. Note some of the tracks here are Soundcloud only, as I wanted to expose some of the superb music being showcased there by unsigned and less well known producers, notably Benton Dread and Big Bear, both of whom offer up a brace of fantastic tracks here. Indulge me and stay for the whole journey, it's worth it.

01. Benton Dread - Alicia
02. Big Bear - Durante
03. Alison Valentine - Peanut Butter (Moon Boots Remix)

Transmission#37 - Black Pitch

In the last transmission before the summer break we slow things down through the first 15 minutes with some fantastic remixes from Jimmy Welsh & Atjazz. The new track Infra by Paume is worthy of mention, particularly as it's his first so expect good things from him in the future. From 15 onwards it's back to business with some shimmering bass grooves from Spirit Catcher, Iron Galaxy & Sexlife and the stunning Au JuJu by Ishmael on Wolf Music. Wrapping things up is the second Romanthony closer in as many episodes, this time with Andre Crom on remix duties with a searing treatment of Ministry Of Love. Back in late July.

Transmission#36 - Sustain Decay

Installment 36 relaxes the bumpiness of recent episodes in favour of a deeper soundscape, painted with the help of exquisite tracks from Fudge Fingas, Soulcool, UPZ, and SVG & Faith. Particular mention goes to the excellent new ep from DFRNT on Fina, from which the lead track here is taken. And I'm pleased to include the storming Laszlo Dancehall track 'Gave Up' on Man Make Music, which has been a long time coming. This episode is dedicated to Romanthony who sadly passed away this month, a prolific producer, his mid to late 90s body of work on Glasgow Underground and Distance were among my formative influences in house, and the silken sound of Kerri Chandler's dub of Trust is included here.

01. DFRNT - The Way You Look At Me
02. Rivani - Bamboo

04. UPZ/Stephanie Cooke - Happy Days (Cuebur mix)

Transmission#35 - Aurora

A deep, stripped back sound for this one courtesy of excellent new material from Zoo Look, Ernest & Frank, Johnny Fiasco & Edmund. The second half steps up by way of a lovely Terri Walker vocal on Artful & Ridney's 'Missing You', and James Welsh brings things toward a close with his sublime cut 'The Way'. Also nice to bring back an older track from Masaki Morii, over 10 yrs old and still sounding fresh!

This edition features a cut from the superb new Fold ep on Man Make Music, and a tough spine courtesy of muscular tracks from Joeski and Andre Winter. Also included, a phenomenal remix of Groovestyle's Freedom Train by Derrick Carter, a track which was rarely absent from Kenny Hawkes' sets, and one which, more than any other, shaped his sound.

Along with fantastic new tracks from Toby Tobias, Nathan G, Piers Kirwan, and new Detroit based producers GolfClap. Special thanks to Jacob Bech for an advance of his sensational new ep on Large, from which No Other Way, featured here, is taken.
