Daniel Dubb – Dusty House – Room 5
Since enchanting the more level-headed ranks of Tech House with Joris Voorn’s ‘Sweep The Floor’, the Dusty House series has proven itself a standout asset to the Dutch master’s Rejected imprint. The times may have changed, but since topping the Beatport charts and throwing forward one of the genres most sought after series of EPs, its name has remained synonymous with eagerly anticipated cuts from outside of the box.
Canadian filter enthusiast Daniel Dubb, however, has already championed the industry on his own merits. WIth last summers cut of ‘Sinnerman’ alongside Sean Miller for Toolroom Records excelling his universal reputation as Toronto’s Tech fuelled whizz kid, his accession to the ranks of Rejected’s Dusty House series was all to apt for a producer who has grown stronger with age.
But the inviting sound scope of Dubb’s Room 5 instalment to the Dusty House series is far from a replication of Rejected’s earlier hallmarks. Where ‘In The Groove’ alongside fellow Canadian export Adam K perforates the foundations of predictable Tech House with formidable style, its ambient melodic stylings and groove-focussed backbone make for a delightful entourage of the duos collective studio stylings.
But solidly leading with shining character and penetrating depth, ‘Wash The Dish’ may not make for a particularly apt name, but its chic backbone of driving drums and haunting brass play make for an increasingly distinct and diverse cut of the gold dust to which Rejected consistently cater for.
Dusty House – Room 5 is out now on Rejected via Beatport.
