Dimitri from Paris turned my ordinary monday night into a saturday night house extravaganza all in the cosiness of my living room last night. "Back in the House" which has just dropped via Defected is one of the finest house compilations I heard in months. Moullinex, Midnight Magic, Holy Ghost!, Mercury and even Monsieur Dimitri himself and his fabulous collaboration with my favourite Hard Ton, are all present here. It's a pure pleasure of a ride through European dancefloors proving that the slightly damaged reputation of the house genre (by the avalanche of the world's worst of all djs and producers David Guetta GGGGGGGRRRRRRRR!) can be rebuilt almost instantly. What an ace selection. Here are two tracks I never came across before by Paris/Stockholm duo Mauvais Cliché and a Gothenburg based dj Jonas Rathsman. Par-tay!!!
Mauvais Cliché - Stop Watching Me (Extended Mix) by mauvaiscliche
Jonas Rathsman - Tobago by FRENCH EXPRESS
And here's a juicy bonus, a special podcast published by Defected ahead of the release of this epic collection:
