Futurehouse: Six Year Anniversary

Futurehouse

The forward-thinking cadre at Futurehouse has been giving L.A. and the world everything that is progressive in house for, well, six years now and the web for the past three. If this two-disc mix set is any indication of what these nightclub revolutionaries have been doing all this time, then slap my rump and call me “subversive.” Because I want to join the party.

Both discs fill the room with deep, luscious grooves and tint your aura with the deepest shades of blue. The sound has more depth than Kierkegaard’s soul and is good for the dancefloor as well as the household. Exhilarating and chilling, the mixes have a lot to offer. Both Lillyanne and Paul T. are masters of the mix, blending each sound with the ululating ease of a calm, tropical breeze. Great music abounds with a cavalcade of posh tunes by Chocolate Starfish, Ricardo Villalobos, Mr. Fingers, Timmy Regisford, Playgroup, Brown Urb, Soho, and Hisashi Ito. Richer than Swiss chocolate and Bill Gates combined, Futurehouse is a treasure trove of some of the best of today and tomorrow’s house. A luta continua!
