US house icon DJ Spen (aka Sean Spencer) began his illustrious career in the mid-’80s as a 13 year- old Baltimore hip-hop radio DJ, making beats with his group the Numarx. The group was responsible for writing and recording ‘Girl You Know It’s True’, later covered by Milli Vanilli. DJ Spen later moved into the classic Chicago house sound, joining forces with The Basement Boys collective. Working with a group of talented vocalists and musicians, under the name Jasper Street Co., DJ Spen released his first solo production, ‘A Feelin’ on Basement Boys Records in 1995. This was the first in a lauded series of releases for the label that brought Spen commercial and dance floor success over the next decade, earning him international recognition as a house music pioneer.
In 2004, DJ Spen split from The Basement Boys, and eventually founded his new imprints Quantize Recordings and later, Unquantize. Collectively, both labels have notched up an impressive 600+ releases, featuring artists such as Crystal Waters, Ann Nesby, Louie Vega, David Morales, Barbara Tucker, Timmy Regisford, Thommy Davis, and so many more. As a remixer, he has put his own stamp on anthems from Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Everything But The Girl, Toni Braxton and more. As a DJ, Spen has been spinning across the globe, holding down a busy tour schedule for the past 30 years, bringing his magic to clubs and festivals, establishing his status as an eminent figure in dance music, both past and present.

Monarke – Edge of Reality EP (When We Dip XYZ)
Release Date: Friday 12 February 2021
01. Otherside (Feat. Jessica Zese)
02. Edge of Reality
When We Dip’s label XYZ warms our souls with its latest release, which helps us get through these cold winter months, by delivering a blend of uplifting melodies and soothing atmospherics.
The three track EP is a label debut from Monarke who is a native of Quebec in Canada who some might recognise from his tracks featured on Global Underground in addition to Soul Button’s Steyoyoke. Utilising enveloping energy and ominous melodics, the Canadian’s progressive techno productions effortlessly catch the ear and hook the mind.
For his first outing on XYZ, Monarke has connected with fellow Canadian artist Jessica Zese, who provides stunning vocal work on “Otherside”. Easy gliding pads and ambiences set the state for the melancholic vocals, allowing sombre tones to guide us through the opening act of the EP.
The title track “Edge of Reality”, takes us to the brink of with swirling stabs and fluttering synths. A broken beat eases in and out through the twists and turns of the arrangement to create complex soundscape, allowing listeners their own interpretations.
“Cataclysm” is aimed directly at the dance floor, with a driving backbone of claps and a solid kick drum. Gritty hooks and eccentric touches bring character to this dance-centric number, showcasing Monarke’s knack for 4×4 killers.
To close out the EP, “Glyph” reigns in the energy, acting as a perfect summary for the EP on a whole. Steady melodies collide with delayed drums, formulating trippy tendencies and an innovative style that’s perfect for winding down.
Danny Gauntlett – Odee (Pogo House Records)
Danny Gauntlet joins the Pogo family with the impressive ‘Odee EP’.
South London DJ/producer broke into the scene back in 2009, DJing everywhere from Ministry of Sound to Mr C and Layo’s well-respected and greatly missed The End. Growing up surrounded by his dad’s extensive Funk, Soul and Disco collection, Danny was always destined to work in music.
Opening with ‘Odee’, we are invited into Danny’s world. Rolling bass, warm rhodes and jazzy hats set up the female vocal perfectly. Four/four UKG pours from the speakers with fresh, reinvigorated joy. Keeping the vibes deep and flavoursome, ‘Forget It’ begins with a breakbeat and warm pads. Developing into a groovy deep house hybrid, Danny flexes his considerable studio skills here. Two highly desirable and flexible cuts from a new and exciting UK talent.
