One of the best parts of the modern House Music Movement is the tight-knit communities that form between Producers, DJ’s, Label Owners and Promoters. These relationships can span across Cities, States, and in the case of Art Department Records, across Countries. For it’s next release, ADR will shine a spotlight on the ever-impressive US house music scene.

For this particular release, ADR Head Honcho Westend (Aka Tyler Morris) has tasked himself with finding the most cutting edge, forward thinking house music currently circulating the United States.

Take one look at the track-listing and it’s a VIP list of dance up-and-comers, all releasing on labels like Dirtybird, Sweat It Out, Medium Rare and Audiophile XXL, among many others.

Westend brings the heat on the opening number ‘Feel Ya Body’, providing a unique take on the tech house trend dominating the clubs right now. Bay Area favourite Grensta follows up with the rolling ‘Double Take’.

Steve Darko and Elevator Musik join forces to get your toes tapping to ‘The Hustle’ , and Riffa brings the filth with ‘Missing You’
San Diego party legend Nutty wastes no time bringing the energy to his sample driven anthem ‘Higher’, and Chicago upstart John Summit rounds things out with the tribal influenced ‘Sunken’

The future of house music is in good hands, and with one listen to ADR Pres. Westend Selects, its clear why.

Nutty – Higher (Original Mix) [Art Dept.]
