// Jonny Loves House 'Itchy Feet EP' - release 14th January 2011//
Johnny may have hated jazz, but thankfully we have our own Jonny and he loves HOUSE! 80’s pop jokes aside and the Brighton based producer, with his self-titled label, has reached release number five of 2010 with the ‘Itchy Feet EP’. Two original tracks from Jonny take in big funky basslines, classic acid sounds and subtly crafted vocals all underpinned by a deep house sensibility, while remixes fromCountry Gents (Deep Cartel) and Michael Morph (Pure Mint) bump it up and jack it out respectively. An active member of the UK’s house community since the mid 90’s, first in the Midlands and then Brighton, Jonny Loves House is a producer and live performer of electronic music, DJ, event organiser and label owner. Originally releasing vinyl white labels in Derby in 2003, EPs such as 'Seasonal Affected Disco' and 'Dreadlocked Summer’ were well received by those in the know and covered positively by DJ Mag and Deep House Network. Jonny’s move to Brighton in late 2003 saw a shift to live performances and DJ sets, and in the vibrant south coast city he has gone on to perform at most venues, collaborating with the most exciting local party collectives. Jonny has also played at and organised deep house arenas at theGlade Festival.
Fellow Brightonian Michael Morph provides one of the remixes. When not sharing stages with the likes of Plump DJs and Groove Armada, Morph spends his downtime in the studio nurturing an eclectic and discerning musical palate that thrives on everything from indie and hip-hop to hardcore. At one point during the early years he even found himself selling gas door-to-door with Chris Todd ofCrazy P fame. His recently released album ‘Something For The Weekend’ was extremely well received and beside his own Pure Mint imprint he has recorded music for Cubic and Sound Of Spectrum.
Country Gents are the duo of Lee Jones and Dan Cartel, who grew out of Nottingham’s free party scene under the influence of the infamous DiY imprint. With more than 20 years of DJing and 10 years of productions behind them, their sound has a distinctive Midlands ‘bump’ that will be familiar to fans of acts like Inland Knights, The Littlemen and the DiY collective. Their own label Deep Cartel has featured their own material, Littleman Big, Kinky Movement and the aforementioned Crazy P.
