Mikey V - Feenin EP (Get Up Recordings)

Get Up Recordings continues its steady string of underground house releases with the Feenin EP by Mikey V, a DJ, producer, and vocalist from Los Angeles. A staple on the West Coast underground house scene since 2006, Mikey is best known for throwing the infamous HAWT parties. The EP includes two original tracks along with remixes from Sharper Image and Christy Love. First up is “Feenin,” a jackin’ vocal tech house track filled with quirky synths and a rhythm reminiscent of old-school Chicago. It’s remixed courtesy of LA’s Sharper Image, a dance music outfit consisting of Jason Gordon and Spencer Moore. They take a different direction, traveling along a deep house avenue with a fitting bass line and moody chord hits. The second original track is a funky tech house jam called “Just Add Boom.” Continuing with the Chi-town vibe, this one could very well have been pulled from the vaults of Cajual or Dance Mania. Rounding out the release is a remix of “Just Add Boom” from label co-owner Christy Love. Christy also produces under the moniker House of Stank with long-time collaborator and label partner W. Jeremy. She shakes up the recurring windy city element and cleverly molds them into the signature NEW New York underground house sound that Get Up Recordings is known for.
