Giano tributes Derrick Carter

Classic has always been a label of its creator‘€™s style and taste, the peculiar flavours of choice from Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter which can usually be identified as either ‘€˜Luke records‘€™ or ‘Derrick records‘€™. With this latest EP, Californian born Ian Lujon a.k.a Giano delivers two tracks which most certainly fall into the ‘€˜Derrick records’ category; straight for the jugular house music, made solely for the hips & ass rather than for the head & the heart. ‘This Is House’ is a spoken word Chi-Town anthem in the making featuring vocal snippets from some of House music’s founding fathers expressing their personal opinions on what they define as house music. Making appearances in Derrick‘€™s recent Boiler Room set and guest mix for Heidi‘€™s Radio 1 show, this one has been pricking the ears and troubling the feet of many for quite some time now.

Without upping roots and moving to the mid-west, and bringing up a whole clan of pooches, ‘€˜The Underground‘€™ couldn‘€™t be any more ‘€˜Derrick‘€˜ if it tried. A boogie bump which has become a firm fixture of his DJ sets and has ripped dancefloors from Manchester to Sydney and back to Chicago again for the past 6 months now. Infectious rolling baseline, filtered looped vocal sample and a lead ‘Tonight we’re gonna flip & trip” loop which you can’t not dance to.
