After making a real name for himself in recent times, WLAD now steps out with a superb new album on his label hedZup Records. KISS finds him hook up with a range of top talents in Oden & Fatzo, iO (Mulen), Luca Donzelli, De La Swing, DJ Steaw, Mancini, MADVILLA, Project89, & Theos and KONG.

The album kicks off in brilliant fashion with WLAD, Oden & Fatzo, and Theos and KONG on Korean BBQ, a nice and lively house cut with funk to spare and plenty of warm chord work. Señor Espresso gets more direct, with pinging drum programming and nice punchy bass alongside Luca Donzelli, and with iO (Mulen) comes the hardcore deep house of Blackout.

WLAD & De La Swing then cook up the restless house funk and characterful melodic loops of Let’s Dance, and Culture Club from WLAD & DJ Steaw then gets as raw as you would expect to start with before the silky chords ripple out to infinity. WLAD & Mancini’s Early Bird is another kinetic house pumper with watery chords and WLAD & MADVILLA then get loose and playful with the smooth and seductive loops and deep space vibes of Nu Phase. WLAD & Project89 shut down with Won’t Let You Down which is irresistible booty-shaking house.

WLAD has become a core part of the underground house scene and this new album shows why.
