New release, “It’s All About” with Giom and Laron remixes, now available on Stompy.com – Exclusive prerelease!


Now #3 Stompy Top 10 Chart!

House on the Hill’s fourth release now available! My original track “It’s All About” featuring Orange County, CA based vocalist Alexandra Lojek, will be paired up with remixes by Giom and Laron aka Swan. Giom, based in London, has been one of the top remixers of the last few years and I’m stoked to have him on my label. His remix of Vernon & Dacosta’s “As Darkness Falls” is arguably one of the biggest Underground House cuts of 2007. His first solo EP, “People Ep” was then released in July 2007 on San Francisco’s Motion Music and quickly went to number 1 at both Primal Records and Juno Records best sellers chart that went to number 2 of the Stompy.com top 100 download chart. More recently, both his “Stolen Soul EP” and his remix of NU-Soul singer Natalie Williams (U Don’t Know — Aroma Recordings) topped the Juno Records’ House chart, as well as both being licensed to various compilations, such as Olivier Desmet & Inland Knights ‘ San Francisco Sessions on Om Records, and Mark Farina’s brand new Fabric 40 Mix CD. For this release, expect a slighter harder sound than you might associate with Giom.

Laron aka Swan is a longtime San Francisco DJ and producer, now based in Chicago. His tracks have appeared on labels such as Classic, Sunburn, Bounce House, and many others. His production feature high energy beats with funky bass lines. His remix features a chugging acid line with deep pads and hard hitting vocals.

Finally, my original mix. Alongside a driving electric bass and thick kick bass, a wah wah Rhodes and Alexandra’s soaring vocals trade off throughout, constantly evolving in new directions throughout the track.

1) Sung Zvin Featuring an appealing live electric bass and guitar effects in the midst of dueling keys. You’ll also find ominous vocal samples and a particularly nasty slap bass climax. It’s totally got the sound of classic dubby & tribal San Francisco house.

2) View From Within Driven by a bouncy ska-like rhythm and tribal drums. Twisted melodic guitar lines and a powerful lead synth trade off as ethereal female vocals echo in the background.
