Upcoming London producer James Dexter joins the Lost My Dogranks with a four tracker taking in slow-burning deep groovers through to bumping, funked-up cuts. His ‘System Check EP’ is a perfect representation of the sound LMD has pushed over the past eight years and another example of the label not being afraid to work with talented producers in the early stages of their careers.
At 25 years old Dex has already amassed a number of noteworthy releases including tracks and remixes on Om Records, Salted Music, Nervous Records, Beatdown Music and Static Audio. His remix of Miguel Migs’ single ‘Tonight’ reached the number three spot in the Traxsource Top 100, with his own single ‘Give Me Something’ on Migs’ Salted Music not far behind. He has also recently released a track on Shades Of Gray’s Beef Records and has something in the works for Large, alongside remixes for Solid Ground and Bump Trax.
Already Dex can count a number of high profile DJs as fans – Fred Everything, Moodymanc, Karol XVII & MB Valence, Evren Ulusoy, Giom, CJ Mackintosh, Dale Howard and several more are all supporters of his music.
Not content with producing a string of hugely acclaimed releases, performing their live set at Europe’s best festivals and delivering bomb after bomb on their label Beef Records, Aussie-Czech duo Shades Of Gray have also found time to get inspired by the EL James book which is getting millions of housewives (and Victoria Beckham) hot under the collar.
That could almost be the story right there, but DJ Schwa, the Czech half of Shades Of Gray has gone further, putting his own musical twist on things, delivering a 50 minute mix of sexually charged, erotic, sleazy and downright filthy house tunes. And even better, it’s completely free to download or stream.
