Loco Dice Announces Double-Disc Mix Compilation
Revealed at the end of last week, house music great Loco Dice announced a double-disc mix compilation. Loco Dice In The House brings together the producer with techno label Defected and introduces mixes and tracks from Kyle Hall, Skudge, Glimpse, Diplo, Marcel Dettman, and Dice himself. The release comes out in the U.S. on July 21 and will be available worldwide the following day.
Paced out through the two discs is new music from the producer’s own Desolat label, including Jean Pierre "Who U Mad At," Brixton "LateUp," Federico Grazzini "Untouchable," and Nathan Barato "Give It To You."
Although the record is predicted to be one of the summer’s largest EDM hits, the pairing of Dice and Defected is still unusual. About working with the label, the DJ said in a press release: “Defected is one of the labels that have always been in my record box. I have an entire section dedicated to them in my collection and I grew up with the label’s history. I think what they’re doing at the moment with combining a lot of different styles and bringing together a diverse range of artists is great. Defected has the freedom to do this, unlike a lot of labels. Of course I knew the name Simon [Dunmore] for years but we never had the chance to meet. Then last year at IMS Simon just sat down to talk to me; initially it wasn’t about business, just music. Eventually he asked me if I could do something for Defected, with as much freedom as I needed. For me it’s a great opportunity, and I always take compilations so seriously, as seriously as I would an album. I’m so happy with the results."
The Ibiza summer season already started last month, and like many producers, Dice has a few residences on the island’s clubs. On July 6, he started at Ushuaia, and by the end of the month, he ends up at Amnesia.
