This is taken off Rising Sun's fantastic debut 12" Sun Dance. Deep minimal house music, complemented superbly by a gorgeous remix wrapped in cotton wool from Sven Weisemann.

2009 saw the emergence of Cottam, an artist who I am very keen to hear more of this year. Hailing from Preston he'd been soaking up electronic music for years in various forms before finally coming up with his own winning formula, his three EP's to date have all been received superbly, offering a sumptuous deep house sound that often samples and re-works old soul, funk and r'n'b tracks. Fans of Soul Clap, take note.

This is a 30 minute mix that I have done for the guys at The Joint and their weekly radio show. Cheers guys!

Hmm, I guess Sweet Settings by Paskal was one of the most slept on tracks of last year. So, so beautiful. Paskal also features on Etoka's celebratory 20th release. Lot's of nice minimal through to deep house on there.
