Take 5 with Jeremy Underground

Jeremy Underground. You’d be hard pressed to find a more fitting name for a man truly dedicated to his passion, house music. It saved him, made him and sustains him. Blessed with an innate ability to not just make a crowd dance, but truly make them feel the music, Underground is moulded by his obsession and dance floors around the world thank him for that. House music is his fuel, and his devotion to the classics is unwavering. It has given him a purpose and he has well and truly seized it.

Ahead of his appearance at both of our 8th birthday celebrations at Beaver Works and Fabric (8th Feb & 17th Feb), the My Love is Underground boss digs out five tracks that have had a profound influence on both his life and career.

 

 

1. The Bucketheads - The Bomb ()

#1 House classic of all time! This is my first memory of loving a House tune, summer 1995 or 1996 I think, I can’t remember exactly. Too young back then to try to figure what style of music it was, too young for trying to know who was the artist / the name of the song. I just remember the moment I first heard it and first loved it, on the radio on a holiday in the Basque Country with my sister. It’s hard to believe that such a great tune became a major worldwide club hit; considering the worldwide club hits we have now.

2. Laurent Garnier - The Force ()

I bought the Laboratoire Mix 2xCD at the huge (Virgin) shop that used to be on the Champs-Élysées. Both mixes are so sick. I used to have a CD player as a wake-up alarm; the first tune of the 2nd CD (The Force) used to wake me up before going to school!

3. Sonya Spence - Let Love Flow On ()

Discovered this one in 2009 through my friend Richie aka Loveontherun from NYC. Fair to say this is one the most beautiful tracks ever made...

4. Rae & Christian - Spellbound (Grand Central Records)

1997.. Best year ever for music in my opinion!

5. Seba & Lo-Tek - So Long (Looking Good Records)

Big big fan of the LTJ Bukem Logical Progression compilation; the first two volumes of Earth as well. So much deepness in there, that deep side of Drum’n’bass was just mind-blowing.
