After a chart topping year in 2011, where Oliver $’s ‘Doin’ Ya Thang’ on Jesse Rose’s ‘Play It Down’ label was the No.1 charted track on Beatport in 2011 (plus it was the No.1 charted track of all time on Resident Advisor), Gene & Oliver approached loungin’ recordings as the home for their brand new Chubby Dubz album project.
Chubby Dubz background and origins combine all manors of influences, as Oliver is native to Germany and Gene to the US. With this chemistry comes a fusion of minds that produces great house music with enough musical soul to have real longevity whilst still keeping the dance floors moving in the best clubs throughout the world. With releases on labels such as Om Records, Appeal Music and Undertones their unique style of house is enjoying great success throughout the world as all the major heads in house music are revelling in deep house currently. The result of this is that the music of Chubby Dubz is being widely championed by everyone from Ricardo Vilalobos, Baby Ford to DJ Rolando and Doc Martin, to name a few.
The Album Sampler #1 is as the name suggests, the first teaser release of 4, from the self-titled Chubby Dubz album due out on loungin’ later this year. All the 12”s will feature full length versions of the album tracks crafted especially for the dancefloor, plus remixes by key players from the loungin’ fold and even some very special guests!
(Dear Soundcloud: This new HTML5 player is dope. Sincerely, Oh My!)
With the resurgence of deep house spreading across the globe, this release will be sure to hit the mark combining productions that one could be fooled into thinking came from the likes of Ron Trent or Chez Damier. To complete the package is an Art Bleek remix of the title track; Direct Experience, delivering a late night groover that will be sure to find favor with the headz.
