Lost My Dog's annual jaunt to the Sonar festival comes this year with a five-track sampler featuring a mixture of LMD artists old and new. Like the Sonar festival itself it's an international affair as label stalwarts Pete Dafeet and YSE (both UK) are joined by last year's star find Acid Andee (Spain) and newcomers Sek (Greece) and Angelo Draetta (Italy).
Angelo Draetta from Bari is just 17 years of age but already has an impressive discography to his name stretching back to 2009. LMD picked up the bass-heavy, female-vocaled deep and soulful house track 'Don't Get It' from a demo sent by Angelo.
Label boss Pete Dafeet paves the way for his impending Family Affair compilation and a new EP featuring Murat Kilic and Shades Of Gray remixes with 'Rough Rider' -- a track that features all the classic elements of cowbells, chord stabs and acid lines.
Sek had impressed the LMD crew with outings on Off Recordings and Kommunity amongst others. The smoky, grainy chords, infectious deep groove and big open hi-hats on 'Feel What You' were all instant winners at LMD HQ.
Acid Andee became a firm favourite at Lost My Dog last year with his 'Stab Fever EP', his impeccable politeness and unstoppable enthusiasm. 'Discopia' is another AA track with a heavy nod to house of years gone by, led by a Korg line.
Last but not least, long-time Lost My Dog artist YSE delivers 'Coloured By Contrast' - a trademark quirky and bouncing house track with a rabble rousing intro to really get the party started! YSE's new EP with Frank H. Carter III vocals and remix by Giom is released as the next Lost My Dog.
This year LMD hit Sonar Off on Saturday 16th June for a party at The Family Music Club, including Shades Of Gray, Pete Dafeet, Nacho Marco, Your Only Friend and Ryan Bliss.
