Guestlist | Playlist: Redux Saints

House | Friday 13th November 2020 | Arren

Our latest selection of tunes comes from the house magician, Redux Saints.

Hailing from house’s birthday place Chicago, and now based in the City of Angels, Los Angeles - Redux Saints has been championing a sound that both celebrates house music’s rich heritage whilst thinking ahead to what house music can be all these years since the genre was came through to the dancefloors several decades ago.

His open minded approach to the genre has been doing the rounds, and has whipped up A-lister support, such as Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Mark Knight. Not bad going, but his wholly encapsulating style means we expected nothing else.

He’s just dropped his latest banger, a track entitled 'Unhinged'. It’s a slab of tech house mastery complete with deep oozing bass lines, funky grooves, a naughty little acid bleep all signed off by those soulful vocals. A banging piece that will guarantee to switch the parties up another level.

Landing on his own Deep Tech Los Angeles, he once again sorts a brilliant example of his house style. He’s been on a fire this year with a string of top notch tunes, and his label’s 'Lockdown Sessions' compilation series kicking off. Despite all this and the short time left in 2020, he’s still got a few more beats to release. But in the meanwhile we’ve got Redux Saints to sort our latest playlist of tunes. He selected a banging mix of tech house cuts, perfect for a locked in weekend listen.

D. Ramriez – 'Open Your Eyes'

Hard to not start off with a track from a producer that has really inspired me and helped shape my sound. As I recall this was the first Toolroom track (of many) I fell in love with for the simple fact of how it crossed sounds of deep house into the tech house realm along with super catchy vocals.

Dusky – 'Careless'

This track was one of the tracks that brought deep house to the forefront of electronic music with the recognizable bass tones from Dusky. I recall playing this in my first set at Winter Music Conference (WMC) in 2014 and still gives me goosebumps when I hear it on a live system today.

Joe Goddard – 'Music is the Answer' (Hot Since 82 Remix)

When you think of a perfect remix of a track, this has to be a top candidate. The arrangement of the track is done in such way that it teases you until the actual hook of the track, and does it in such a beautiful way. I like to bring this track in mid-set to connect with a dance floor through a nostalgic climax, then take my listeners onto the next leg of the set.

Downtown Party Network – 'Space Me Out' (Jody Wisternoff & James Grant Remix)

I have a saying with my label partner that at some point of the night we always go “Anjuandeep” meaning we start to slow it down a bit, and the first song that always starts us with that journey is the Jody Wisternoff and James Grant remix of “Space Me Out”. I have been a huge fan of Anjuandeep for years and the music really speaks to me.

Placebo eFx – 'Give Me A Reason' (Redux Saints Remix)

Some might know, but I have another moniker called Placebe eFx. This moniker outlet lets me get a bit more melodic with my tracks versus the stripped back tech house sounds from Redux Saints. “Give Me A Reason” became my favorite production to date and I wanted to play it during my Redux Saints sets as it has that epic connection breakdown, similar to Music is the Answer, so the easiest way to make that happen was just for me to remix my original track into a different genre.
