Dexter Kane knows tech house. Banging out well produced, quality tech house cuts for close to a decade, Dexter has always danced to the beat of his own drum (machine), spearheading his popular imprint, Shadow Sanctuary, in the process. His latest EP ‘Hit Rewind’ is a solid CTC fave, thanks to the producer’s classy ode to acid house, aptly titled ‘303 ’til Infinity’.
CTC grabbed DEXTER KANE for a chat this week, to see what songs he’s been hammering on the dance floor, for another instalment of our popular series, Five for the Floor.
James What – It Feels Wrong. “A lot of tunes have a shelf life for me, it’s a really rare thing to find one that still makes you feel the same way, no matter how many times you listen to it. I remember hearing Steve Bug play this at Fabric in the summer of 2011 and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. Production is slick as.”
Burnski – The Hours. “Really happy to hear some new stuff from this guy after a short hiatus. He’s definitely one of those producers who goes for quality rather than quantity, which is rare in this digital day and age. Seems like he’s taken his sound a shade tougher on this, but the trademark chords never let you forget it’s still a Burnski record. Ace.” // Read our chat with Burnski here.
Dexter Kane – 303 ’til Infinity. “Cheeky little Acid house track I knocked up. Out on Shadow Sanctuary on the 9th March. Was originally supposed to a b-side, but seems to be getting a nice bit of love.” // Read our review of Dexter Kane’s ‘Closer Still’ EP here.
Niko Maxen – The Ol’ Boy. “Another forthcoming record on Shadow Sanctuary, this one’s out in May. Really digging the subtleness of this record. A relentlessly solid groove, that remains catchy to the end. No easy feat.”
Preview coming soon // Follow Niko here.
Jacky – Mute (System 2 Remix). “Bit of wax I just picked up. Got a really nice old feel to it, loads of 808 which is never a bad thing.”
