Hola from Ibiza! I got to listen to some great house, techno, disco and beyond at Sónar in Barcelona this weekend, and I'm excited to share some great disco and acid house with you today for the latest This Week in House Music. Keep it grooving, ya'll!

Best New Track: DJ Pierre, Chic Loren - I Feel Love (Monkey Safari Remix)[Get Physical Music, June 17]

Chicago acid house forefather DJ Pierre and Atlanta singer-songwriter Chic Loren fill the legendary disco shoes of Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer, serving up a fresh rendition of the 1977 dance floor classic "I Feel Love." The B-side, the 1979 Disco Club Mix, points directly back to the original, with some extra acid flare, and the A-side is a groovy deep house remix from German duo Monkey Safari.

Best New Mix: Underground Music Academy Takeover: Josh Caffé - 19 June 2022

On Juneteenth, Waajeed's Detroit-based Underground Music Academy did a 24-hour takeover of Rinse FM, and London DJ, producer and vocalist Josh Caffé served up an hour of delightful high-energy house and booty bouncing bangers. Track IDs include "Off Guard," by Bakongo & Spectr, "On The Day" by Franceso De Megni, and "Telegraphic It" by DJ Slugo.

Best Classic Track: "Acid Trax," Phuture(1987, Trax Records)

Loading...

In 1985, DJ Pierre, DJ Spank Spank, and Herb J formed the legendary house trio Phuture. That same year, Spank acquired a Roland TB-303 drum machine, the tool with which they'd create the first acid house song, "Acid Tracks." The 12-minute spacey, jingling dance floor heater first wreaked dance floor havoc in 1986 when Ron Hardy played it on tape at the iconic Music Box club in the Windy City. In 1987, the track (their debut single) was produced by another Chicago house icon, Marshall Jefferson, and released on Trax Records. House would never be the same.
