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)
05. Dan Only - Don't You Understand

12. Rupeski feat. Mel Blatt - Dreamin' About Tomorrow (G Dubs Guided by Angels Reprise)
13. Adam Port, Rampa, &Me - Muye (Black Coffee Remix)
14. Lono Brazil, Ron Trent - Manchild (In The Promised Land) (Ron Trent Full Vocal Version)
15. Deeper Phil - Epeng

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
15. Solee - Infinidad (Martin Landsky remix)
16. Portable Sunsets - Straylight (Dave DK remix)
17. Stan Kolev - We Become
18. DJ Koze - Seeing Aliens

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)

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.

1. Slacker - See Yourself
2. Atjazz - Dry Red Line
3. Sweely - All The Reasons
4. Goshawk - High In The Evergreens
5. Awanto 3 - Pregnant
6. Vanilla Ace - Get It On (Scott Diaz 'Hint of Disco' remix)
7. Jay Potter - Such An Ease
8. Thatmanmonkz - Got 2 Get 2 (Ducktape Dub)
9. Jimpster - Where You Are
10. AMIR - The Monologue (DJ Aaakmael Unxpozd mix)
11. Homepark - RFMS
12. Nthng - 1996
13. Huxley - Callin'
14. Ben Sims pres. Ron Bacardi - Rock Your Body
15. Radio Slave - Bell Clap Dance (TCK mix)
16. Karim Sahraoui - White Horse
17. Christoph - Alone
18. Shanti Celeste - Make Time
19. Bicep - Closing Sequence

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.

1. Marcel Vogel - Human Being (NY*AK feat Mark Hand remix)
2. Ron Trent - Hooked On Your Love (1984)
3. After Hours - Waterfalls (4 A.M. Mix)
4. Howling - Phases (Club Edit)
5. Freeform Five - One Day (Salt City Orchestra mix)
6. Lootbeg - Float
7. Long Island Sound - Field Echoes
8. Munro - Midnight Rhythm
9. Compuphonic - Slow Bilbao
10. Schatrax - Mispent Years
11. Goshawk - My Heart (Feat. Astral T)
