German Haus Anybody?

Today I will be taking you into probably one of the coolest, grooviest house musicians from Germany. That's right. Though Germany is infamous for its Happy Hardcore and Trance music,It does have quite a few house artists out there. The one i'll be talking to you about is probably the most well known to Daft Punk fans: Boris Dlugosch.
Now most of us remember him for his extended club mix of Digital Love, which imo was excellent. but its not the only thing he has done in his time. Before I show you some tracks, I guess he needs a proper introduction.

Boris Dlugosch is a House Music Producer born in Germany who is well known for his funky/deep house tracks and mixes. He regularly goes by another alias with a club friend Michi Langes, known as BMR. Boris started the music business in 1992 under another alias with a few other partners and came out with his first single,Controversy during the mid point of that year. As time progressed, Boris began producing/collabing with other groups such as Spiller and Princess Superstars, not to mention doing about a dozen more singles and several remixes for other groups.Today, he is one of the most sought out remixers because of the various famous groups he mixed for such as royksopp and A-Ha. Thats about all the info I can really give you. Anyways, on to ze tracks.

Ah, the Dlugosch remix of Digital Love is far superior to the original, IMHO

Yanni, as in... the new age keyboard guy?

Hmm, i disagree untra. Personally Digital Love is one of my favourite tracks from the album. And this edit is nice, but doesn't out-trump the original.

His remixes are little more than club edits (and I'm not just talking about his Digital Love remix, check out his "remix" of Jus 1 Kiss by Basement Jaxx), but his original tracks are pretty good. Bangkok is a 2 Many DJ's setlist staple, which means it's OK in my book.

Some of his mixes are, but not all of them. the BMR dub on here is a complete rework from the original, as well as the moloko mix (There are two versions of both these tracks he made) And there are quite a few others out there that feel more of a mix than a club edit, though some of his are just that. I can send you the other towa tei and Moloko Mix if you want Champi :)

I wouldn't mind that. :)
