Classic Music Company is an integral part of the Defected family, known for its left-field blissed out house sounds and intimate parties, Luke Solomon’s label has been a major player since its inception in 1994.
Classic has been making serious movements this summer, check out all the latest activity from the label…
Mike Dunn – My House From All Angles
Kicking off the summer with an album from a house legend – Mike Dunn’s My House From All Angles was a record fuelled by a pumping heart of pure house and a body of powerful analogue muscle. As Mike’s first long-player since 1990 it truly re-instated his authority as a house master. As The Guardianwrote, “God may have made him funky, but Mike Dunn has kept it going ever since.” Stream and download here.
Dave + Sam featuring Mike Dunn – Til The World Blow Up
Brooklyn duo Dave + Sam made their debut on Classic earlier this summer with ‘Til The World Blow Up’ alongside fellow Classic label-mate Mike Dunn. This evocative dancefloor groover aligned perfectly with Classic’s catalogue and offers an exciting preview of Dave + Sam’s forthcoming album ‘No Shade’. Stream and download here.
Oliver Dollar featuring Nils Ohrmann – John’s Church (Remixes)
After Oliver Dollar brought us his incredible album ‘Another Day Another Dollar’ on Classic earlier this year, the steamy, hard-hitting and gospel tinged ‘John’s Church’ had its own release in the form of two brand-new remixes from Mousse T. and Cassius. Stream and download here.
Loods – Walking Way
Australian DJ / producer Loods makes his Classic Music Company debut with a suitably blissful and summer-ready release ‘Walking Away’.
