re-edit for gkf gkf040 - release date 04-2008



To celebrate its second year of existence and its 40th release, Gotta Keep Faith Records is proud to present its first compilation! And this time, our new GKF family member is neither a musician, nor a DJs a dolphin who loves house music! 'Deepy' traveled the seven seas to find the rarest deep & soulful house gems, and got back to us in Italy with some incredible new sound that we couldn't have found by ourselves. His last catch was excellent: 10 incredible pieces with no less than 5 exclusive and previously unreleased tracks.

People who buy the MAX BITRATE collection from TRAXSOURCE will receive the CD covers files designed by Sanchezlife and get a complementary bonus MP3 mixed by GKF Records DJ: MONSIEUR CEDRIC.

The collection starts with Spiritual Blessings remix of Randy Brusseto"Naked Melody", which is a powerful deep-house track spiced with some horns and harmonica. Lem from Mood II Swing chose, once again, Tara J to perform the vocals on "Reach 4 U", and Joseph Mercado took care of the remix job, making it sound more "N.Y. disco" than ever. The re-edit of "Head up high" from DJ Nermin is the perfect tune for the beach or pool parties. New-York's garage house prodigy Jeremias Santiago and well-known KT Brooks teamed up to deliver us their Latin mix of "Keep Pressing", a pure soulful production. "Night in NYC" by DNY a.k.a. Mr. Mama and Tony Loreto will take you back in time, straight to the early nineties when Italo-deep house was at its best: piano, strings, Mediterranean sun's all in there. For this collection, Steve Paradise prepared a perfect dance-floor warm-up tune: "Let's dance" has a funky groove and a metallic sound which gives the track a little electronic touch. The guys from Spiritual Blessings brought us another classy-deep-house remix with this version of Joseph"Transformed". Dual II perfectly mixed some classic Spanish guitar to the sophisticated house sound of their "Barcelona". Joey's (aka Jozsef Keller) "Rise" is a simple but solid deep house track. And finally, to conclude this first chapter of "Deepy" the dolphin's adventure, Krispaglia offers us an African jungle-jazz influenced deconstructed hypnotic tune. What a program!
