Sometimes, all you need is a bassline.

Veteran DJs and producers DJ Q and DJ Haus have spent the best part of the last decade mastering their craft, and putting a large, gaudy signature on a plethora of dance subgenres. In 2013, they formed like Voltron to birth Trumpet & Badman, and have since dropped three white-hot 12″s for Haus’s Hot Haus imprint, reaching a frothy peak with this summer’s ‘Body Ache’.

The duo’s generously proportioned FACT mix illustrates how effortlessly Trumpet & Badman manage to surf through very different sounds without losing the all-important message: Dance music is supposed to be fun. This is a space where house gangster DJ Sneak can sidle up alongside Marquis Hawkes, and where DJ Haus’s excellent 4×4 edit of Fatima Yamaha’s destructive ‘What’s A Girl 2 Do’ sounds perfectly at home in the same selection as Josh Wink’s ‘Hypnotizin’; the mix even comes to a dramatic close with Cate’s cheeky ‘Doges In Costumes’.

For those of you eager to explore more of what Haus and Q have to offer, make sure you head over to the brand spanking new Unknown to the Unknown website – UTTU.CLUB – where you can pick up a selection of teeshirts, freebies and tunes, all presented with a sense of humor that’s all too often missing in the polite, grey world of contemporary dance music.
