After his acclaimed remixes for artists Hoplite and Wesley Dysart, Steamtown Records hands the engine car over to the multi-instrumentalist and genre-crossing producer Michael Woodruff, marking his debut original on the Atlanta based label.

Michael Woodruff’s single “Class-E” walks a delicate line between Italo-influenced nu disco and a more spacious house music. With a four-on-the-floor rhythm punctuated by techy arpeggiations, haunting piano melodies, and cosmic embellishments “Class-E” builds a lush sonic space perfect for an early build up or a late night groove-a-thon.

Remixes are provided by Costin 105, Wesley Dysart vs. DJ Notech, and a new addition to the Steamtown roster: The Voice of Saturn (a new solo project featuring Travis Thatcher of Judi Chicago and Recompas). An eclectic mix of styles is presented, touching upon progressive, deep house, electro, and breakbeat sounds.

Romanian producer Costin 105 blends in a jazzy vocal stab and classic house feel on his 3rd Steamtown appearance. As funky as it is hard-hitting this version creates a minimal garage vibe sure to shake things up at parties around the globe. For the first time Wesley Dysart and Steamtown’s own DJ Notech partner to unleash an electro influenced progressive house monster. Dysart’s studio wizardry collides with Notech’s disco & funk sensibility to construct a peak time banger full of giant bass tones, melodic stabs and edgy sound effects. Voice of Saturn displays amazing sound design and atmospheric depth with his far out interpretation. Dark and dubby rhythmic trickery combined with warm modulated bass flesh out a groove that shifts between slow motion disco and fork-tongued trip-hop.

With four individual works pushing the edges of their respective genres Michael Woodruff's “Class-E” is a great addition to any forward-thinking dance music collection.
