Far Too Loud - Play It Loud

The London based trio entered the breakbeat scene back in 2005 with the single, Whole Lotta Hate. Two years later and the group had toned their skills to produced this monster. Play It Loud was more house based, and as a result received plays from top DJ's, bringing their heavy sound to the masses. If this were 'Best of Breakbeat' we'd present the even harder hitting, Broken Robot remix, but for now this will do. Featuring the most insane break you've ever heard, this tune holds back on NOTHING. Filth rating: Off the scale.

CLASSIC: Armand van Helden feat. Duane Harden - U Don't Know Me

It's that time again already, and this week it's Boston-born DJ and producer Armand van Helden that provides the classic. U Don't Know Me is a frenzy of cut-up samples from Carrie Lucas' Dance With U (a disco classic in its own right) mixed with the slick vocals of Duane Harden. Reaching #1 in the UK, this is a true house classic!

Kish Mauve - Lose Control (Fred Falke remix)

French funk-master, Fred Falke brings us his remix of this, originally, quite standard track. Laced with soothing guitar patterns and lush pads, this is typical of his previous work. The end result is a brilliantly put together tune that will relax and soothe the senses of even the busiest city worker. Enjoy

Madonna ft. Justin Timberlake - 4 Minutes To Save The World (Junkie XL remix)

Madonna's recent outing with pop sensation, Justin Timberlake produced more than just a four-week UK chart topper. It produced a plethora of shiny remixes to enjoy too! This one's from Junkie XL, and it gives the March release a new lease of life and a passageway into our clubs and the dance scene. Check it out below.

CLASSIC: Alison Limerick - Where Love Lives

In short, Where Love Lives is one of the definitive house classics of the 90s. Its unmistakeable piano melody combined with Alison Limerick's soulful voice is a perfect combination. If this doesn't at least get your feet tapping or your head bobbing then there might be something wrong with you!

Technical Issues: Resolved!

Sorry for the delay, due to a PC error we were left in a bit of a pickle! The bad news is the Filthy Weekend wasn't the weekend it should have been. The good news is we're back up and running and planning to continue our weekend on the 16th-17th August. Until then, we will continue as normal. Thanks for staying with us guys and gals! :)

Technical Issues

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Best Of House will be taking a minor hiatus. Rest assured we will be back very soon with upfront news and tunes from the world of house music. We might even throw that filthy house podcast we were planning in there too. Don't forget to check back for updates on the situation.

Depeche Mode - Never Let Me Down Again (Digitalism Remix)

With a remix reportoire longer than your arm, it was only a matter of time before German duo Digitalism got their hands on a Depeche Mode track, ripped it apart and created an electro monster. Putting the vocal hook through a vocoder and mixing it over some of the nastiest synth sounds ever imagined, this is filth of the highest order.

Filth rating: Even soap won't shift it.

Eric Prydz aka Cirez D – Fabric Test (Highland Cream Recon)

Rumored to be named after Prydz produced the track for a Fabric gig, this bass-heavy monster would challenge even the top London club’s world-renowned sound system. With a nice melodic break in the middle before some nasty filthy chords to set the mood, this is a well-evolving and interesting track. Ten points to whoever can tell us what the ‘Highland Cream Recon’ is all about. Filth rating: Quite filthy.

What is Filthy/Dirty House?

What began as an underground movement quickly became popular in mainstream clubs and radio stations around 2004. A form of electro house music, dirty house was harsher, grittier, and its sole purpose was to blow our heads off. Pioneered by the likes of Felix da Housecat and Steve Lawler, dirty house today has found itself host to many mainstream acts such as Tocadisco, Bodyrox, and David Guetta. Yet deeper down the rabbit hole we go, and find full-blown speaker-destroying productions from artists such as Digitalism and Justice. Check out our mix on Sunday for a good hour of the best dirty house has to offer.

Boys Noize – Lava Lava

We start our Filthy Weekend with this electro romper courtesy of Alexander Ridha, aka Boys Noize. The second track of his debut album, Oi Oi Oi released in 2007, Lava Lava is a top notch dirty house production. Also worth checking out is the Para One remix. Filth rating: Filthier than a fully clothed mud bath.
