Defected presents FCL In The House is the first essential mix album of 2015, a two CD mix of classic and contemporary house music, including cuts from Larry Heard, Bob Moses, Seven Davis Jr. and Audiojack, as well as a handful of FCL exclusives.
FCL is the house project of Belgian DJ/producers San Soda and Red D, who, in 2012, released ‘It’s You’, a club phenomenon that started life as a Panorama Bar-inspired DJ tool and went on to be one of the biggest house tracks of 2013. This year’s follow up ‘Can We Try’ alongside stunning remixes of Audiojack and Kele Okereke (amongst others) proved similarly definitive, firmly placing FCL in the upper echelons of house music’s elite.
Defected presents FCL In The House is the duo’s first ever mix album, with both Red D and San Soda digging deep to deliver two distinct mixes indicative of their broad and discerning taste for quality house.
“If there was one thing we always wanted to do as DJs, it was to be asked for a mix compilation in which we would get total (house) freedom” says Red D of putting the mix together. “We aimed for a DJ set filled with old and new tracks that you will want to come back to in 10 years’ time”.
This exclusive vinyl sampler pulls out just 4 of the tracks featured in these two mixes - A perfect balance between ‘deep’ house, disco house, soulful stuff and some Chicago roughness.
