DEFECTED IN THE HOUSE RADIO with host SAM DIVINE & featured guest mix from PURPLE DISCO MACHINE /// 12th Dec 2015 @ 8pm

DEFECTED IN THE HOUSE MOST RATED 2015 /// SATURDAY 12TH DEC 2015 ON GROOVE CITY RADIO

 

Every year we countdown the Most Rated records of the year in the Defected Radio Show, with host Sam Divine running through the cuts that have made the most impact from this year in house. While we’re in no way saying that this is a definitive list, we hope that it’s at least representative of house music in 2015.

In for the guest mix we welcome back Purple Disco Machine, who has put together a special mix highlighting some of his top tracks from the year. Purple Disco Machine will also be joining us at our spectacular Ministry Of Sound New Years Eve party.

KNEE DEEP IN HOUSE presents Guest Mix from SCOTT DIAZ /// Saturday 5th December 2015 /// 14:00 – 16:00 gmt

GROOVE CITY RADIO and the KNEE DEEP IN HOUSE show with host Jordan Alexander are pleased to bring you another amazing guest mix to the station from Scott Diaz.

 

Scott’s energy and vibe as a performer has been winning him fans worldwide, and his reputation as a DJ and standout producer is one of the fastest growing the house world right now.

2012 has been an exceptional year for Scott – his remix of ‘Gabrielle’ (a co-production with Matt Jam Lamont) went on to spend more than 4 consecutive weeks as the number one record on Traxsource. Grant Nelson singled out Scott’s remix of Lovebirds ‘Want You In My Soul’ as “one of my favourite remixes of all time” and his pitch perfect interpretation of Ron Carroll’s seminal house classic ‘Back Together’ won him even more respect from across the house community. He has firmly cemented his place as one of the most exciting new house producers to emerge in recent times, with Traxsource featuring no less than 8 of his productions in their ‘Best of 2011′ list. In addition, he’s been featured on several compilations in the last 12 months, appearing alongside global artists such as Cajmere, Maceo Plex, Pirupa, Subb-An, Crazy P and Sandy Rivera, showing that he has considerable clout to go with his considerable talent.

Studio success is fundamental to Scott, but the true test of a DJ remains in the clubs, and in that spirit he has been rinsing his passport over the last couple of years too, playing in a number of clubbing destinations – Ibiza, Portugal, Amsterdam, Russia and the USA to mention a few. After his exploits at Miami WMC, he toured the US west coast in the summer, taking in multiple dates spanning Mexico City, LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Portland and more, playing alongside house heavyweights Mark Farina, Ron Carroll and Jay-J in the process. He maintains the same refreshing approach to his sets as to his productions, using his own remixes, unreleased edits and mixtools, playing right across the spectrum of house and seamlessly combining a variety of influences and styles. The result is a mixture of vocal, deep, disco and jackin’ main room grooves, but always a uniquely soulful, house sound with the dancefloor in mind.
Scott’s label, connect:d, set up primarily as an outlet for his productions and co-productions, continues to go from strength to strength, with world class DJ’s such as Grant Nelson, MK, Gramophonedzie, Miguel Migs, Sonny Fodera, Tony Humphries and Gene Farris and all playing and/or charting Scott’s music. As a DJ and performer, his reach and appeal continues to grow exponentially – he’s provided guest mixes for Grant Nelson’s Housecall, Anthony Angell’s ‘Essential House’ and the ‘Global Dance Session’ – each of which are syndicated to over 2 million people worldwide.

Never one to rest on his laurels, Scott continues to evolve as an artist, with current focus on creating original vocal tracks and songs, and exploring a deeper, more organic house sound with his DJ sets and productions. His impressive and diverse discography boasts releases on labels such as ITH (Defected), Hed Kandi, Nervous, Soulfuric, Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse & Purple Music – and he shows no signs of letting up anytime soon. With a radio show and podcast in the pipeline, more huge projects on the way, and an ever growing fan base of listeners and peers alike, Scott looks destined to continue rocking the house.
