Sir Stephen : House Of Regalia

The music of New Orleans producer Sir Stephen is a veritable goldmine for those of us that remember the ’90s for more than just grunge and Britpop. His debut album proper House Of Regalia, just released via the 100% Silk label, pays affecionate homage to the kind of crossover house and techno that you were just as likely to hear on daytime radio as at the Hacienda or Cream; its eight tracks recall the likes of Todd Terry, Inner City and 808 State whilst at the same time evoking the playful spirit of groove-centric pop acts like Dee-Lite and even Stock, Aitken & Waterman’s Hit Factory. Listen to the jackin’ “Hypercolor Emulsion” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
