Fouk is the production alias of Dutch duo Daniel Lesseman and Junktion, and they are foukin good! ‘Elevator Groove’ is a great track title as the chord’s that this track largely hinges on is like something you didn’t realise you heard in an elevator but end up humming all day, passing it onto unsuspecting victims as you go. Still all that aside this tracks simplicity is its strength and the reveal of an extremely hooky vocal doesn’t hurt. Full of hip swing and guaranteed to get your head doing that ‘tree in the wind’ nod this one is going to get a serious rinsing here at HOD HQ.
I love that feeling when someone reminds you of a track that’s been teetering on the edge of memory and lost forever. This remix is one of those. It’s a pretty straightforward edit of an iconic and amazing original by Fred Wesley. The perfect track to play at, you guessed it, a house party. This edit has enough bump to be played at those times in the party where the original is just a little on the light side. Make’s we wanna call up some friends, hide the valuables and tear my house a new one. You’re invited, just bring some hooch.

A recent guest to our parties and all round gentleman Andy Hart has been going from strength to strength with his output. Always quite low slung and with the groove at the core this edit he put together for Midnight City is no different. Sandy Barber is one of our favourites here at HOD HQ and he’s done a brilliant job of working with the original elements and vocals to put together a patient dance-floor burner from a quality source. Fiyah!
This one’s been knocking around for a while but I’ve somehow only just come across it, which is weird as Tom Trago is a producer I really expect. Oh well, some of the best treats are a bit old, like a fine wine or cheese. Speaking of cheese this club ready edit treads a really nice line of keeping the original vocal relevant in an unconventional dance-floor arrangement. Would be a fun one to play when all the lights come up and the meathead bouncers are trying to kick everyone out.
