Dutch house legend Michel de Hey delivers his ‘It Doesn’t Get Echter’ EP on Madhouse, backed by a remix from fellow countryman Locklead.
A mainstay at the heart of the Dutch house scene for over thirty years, Rotterdam’s Michel de Hey continues to solidify his position as one of the Netherland’s finest electronic music exports. A DJ, producer, label boss and promoter, the multi-faceted talent has released a plethora of stand-out releases throughout his career via labels such as Rejected, Poker Flat, Ovum, Relief and his latest imprint, In The Future, whilst featuring across a long list of internationally renowned venues and festivals to date. Next up, July welcomes a debut appearance on Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse Records as he delivers his ‘It Doesn’t Get Echter’ EP on the label, whilst Slapfunk regular Locklead steps up on remix duties.
Opening cut ‘Echter’ showcases a wealth of classy house sonics, from rich key leads through to refined drum licks and sweeping synths, so offer up a stylish house gem, before Locklead’s ‘Intergalactic Remix’ takes the production down a warping journey of hypnotic, dubby pads, tripped out vocals and punchy kicks. To close, ‘Marsssss’ meets the two previous productions somewhere in the middle as de Hey introduces skipping percussion loops alongside icy hats and further resonant organ work to shape up proceedings in impressive fashion.
