Our next release comes from Australian tech house wonderkid, Deepchild. Dividing his time between his native Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom, Rick (as he's also known) has spent the past several years forging a very respectable name on the international DJ circuit as a serious and versatile DJ and performer. Adding another dimension to his profile, he has also been responsible for some very unique and exciting production work on top labels such as Freerange and Get Physical amongst many others, so we are very excited and privileged to present you with this EP of his original works. Kicking things off we have "Donut Hound", a track that is already receiving lots of attention and support and has been featured on Hipp-e and Style of Eye's recent "OM Sessions" CD. All of Deepchild's production hallmarks are prevalent here, from his bouncy, funky basslines and swingy, shuffly hi hats to the quirky FX sounds that often accentuate his music.

On remix duties for this track, we have drafted in the mighty Tiger Stripes who turns in a stripped back, minimal techno interpretation. Utilizing the key elements of the original and with a keen focus on swing and groove, Tiger Stripes has created a simple yet powerful remix that is sure to find favor with a wide variety of DJ's and heat things up on the dancefloor!

On the flipside, Hipp-e treats us to a deep, tech-house excursion on his remix of "Twitch". Taking a completely different approach to Deepchild's twisted and glitchy original, he instead constructs his remix around a catchy and hypnotic arrangement of chords and melodies. The result is an excellent melodic journey with plenty of groove and rhythm that perfectly complements the package while remaining faithful to the original.

Last, but not least, label boss Stel steps up to the plate with his re-interpretation of "Spambot". His version remains close to the overall spirit of the package, serving up a fresh, underground slice of tech-house complete with techno-inspired chord stabs, fizzy rides and FX galore!

On the digital package, you will find 2 bonus tracks which are the Original versions of Deepchild’s “Twitch” and “Spambot”.
