Underground Paris (My Love Is Underground)

MLIU has quickly become one of our favourite labels with unbelievable releases from the likes of Brawther, The Groove Victim, Nathaniel X and Inner Sense. So we thought we would bring you the man behind the scenes who has not only made waves in the deep house circuit with his imprint but his Dj sets are quickly gaining a legendary status. But don’t take out word from it here is a short bio from the man himself…

“Hey what’s up, my name is Jeremy Underground Paris & I’m running My Love Is Underground.
I’m a 23 years old music lover based in the parisian suburbs. Besides the label,
I’m basically a hardcore crate digger/record collector, and I’m also djing.
At the tender age of 10, back in the spring of 1997, I discovered the deep house sound on the famous parisian radio “Nova” (with that crazy joint called “That’s Life” by Charles McDougald),
and instantly fell in love with it.During the following weeks, I bought my first deep house 12inches; with plates like Kerri Chandler’s “The Way I Feel 97″ or CVO’s “Party Time” on Balance.
That’s the cool way my collection started, a collection that now, 13 years after, reaches +5000 vinyl records. With such a house education, I developped a deep and very special taste for underground house music, and got specialized into it. I must say I dug really deep into the 90′s house sound , so when I’m playing, that gives you a ‘unique’ chance to listen to the finest oldschool obscurities, tunes that, basically, you have no chance to hear anywhere else.
But wait! I’m not only into the deephouse game. It’s been several years now that I also collect many other styles, let’s say mainly “70′s Rare Grooves”. Jazz/funk/soul/disco/brazil/afro/psych/cuban/european stuff, whatever you want, no musical frontiers …as long as the groove is there! “There is good music and there is bad music”
One advice: don’t ever tell me about your digital business, your mp3′s etc. Fuck that. Vinyl Only!”

Here’s a set from Jeremy live in Kiev to get you in the mood!

Joining Jeremy on the night will be a fellow who has become one of our personal favourite Dj’s from Leeds.

Also we have Manchester DJ/ Label Owner / Promoter Extraordinaire Stretford Dogs Club. A true music lover and top bloke!

Stretford Dogs club (Development)

2011 was a big year for deep house connoisseur Stretford Dogs Club, and was one which saw him own regular dates at various Manchester clubs including the best of them all, Sankeys. Also playing for Snafu up in Aberdeen and ending the year with two dates in Cape Town and Johannesburg, the SDC sound managed to get everywhere.

Playing alongside the likes of DJs/producers like Dixon, Waifs & Strays,Death On The Balcony, Heidi, Andre Lodemann and Alex Barck from Jazzanova – as well as being invited for an Interview and Podcast/Mix with the likes of The Independent online and for Ministry of Sound radio on New Years Eve –SDC is the underground talent gaining more and more props from all the right people.

With 2012 already underway, it looks like it could be the best yet, with bookings confirmed in Aberdeen, Coventry, Newcastle and London in the next few months as well as brand new residency at revolutionary new Manchester club-night, Cartel.
Also, just back from his first gig in Berlin and with more travels planned at Electric Elephant in Croatia in July as well as a July/August tour of Canada and US.
With a 24 hour mix of his from 2011 now available to download through iTunes, and a brand new mix concept In:Season planned for this year, we expect this skilled DJ to be ever more the talent on peoples lips in 2012.
