Rediscovering Slip 'N' Slide

Rediscovering Slip 'N' Slide

published on 17.03.17

West London’s Slip 'n' Slide was one of the UK’s original house imprints. Starting in 1994 with early releases and remixes from artists such as Blaze, Deep Dish, X-Press 2, King Britt, Masters At Work, Kings Of Tomorrow and Restless Soul, it set the benchmark for house music in the UK and gave a platform to artists who then went on to become all-time greats. The label evolved over later years and has released music from the likes of Solid Groove, Tim Deluxe, Derrick Carter, Josh Wink, Harry ‘Choo Choo’ Romero, Erick Morillo, a veritable 'who's who' of house music royalty. Kevin Hedge and Josh Milan were responsible for much of Slip 'n' Slide's output in some capacity, either as a duo in Blaze or producing, writing and remixing with other artists under various aliases.

The catalogue has now been acquired by Defected Records for the purposes of rediscovering the gems that deserve another airing. This series revisits some of Slip ‘n’ Slide’s standout releases, gleefully wading through the entire musical history of the label, blowing the dust off those albums and singles that deserve another lease of life and a place in your classic house collection. The series includes nine newly collated singles packages featuring previously unreleased mixes of Slip 'n' Slide's defining records from Amira, Blaze, Funky People, The Klub Family and Mijan. Listen below to get reacquianted. 

The series also includes re-releases of early Kings Of Tomorrow, Midnight Express, Power In The Groove and Roz White records along with the albums 'Basic Blaze' and 'Spiritually Speaking' from Slip 'n' Slide's most prolific artists and House Masters.
