As reported earlier this month, head of the Unknown to the Unknown label DJ Haus releases a new mixtape, Thug Houz Anthems Vol. 1 this week.
Beginning life as a YouTube channel, Unknown To The Unknown became a powerful force for good throughout the last year, churning out 20+ releases of twisted garage and oddball bass music from the likes of DJ Narrows, DJ Q, Sinden and Sinden; we correspondingly named it one of our ten favourite labels of 2012. Their lo-res hijinks have continued into 2013: NY troublemakers Jubliee and Star Eyes released fresh material at the start of the year, the Classified label sampler dropped in February, and they recently found a home for Lake Haze’s glittering ‘Need For Speed’, to name a few.
On ‘Cold as Ice’, a favourite of ours from Thug Houz Anthems, DJ Haus looks to Baltimore with scruffed breaks and reversed breath samples before shooting the track into space with a starry arpeggio. You can download it below.
Last year, FACT TV cornered DJ Haus in an Austrian cave – head here to watch the results.
