Bubblin': House of House
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who: House of House
Where: New York, NY
The list of Big Apple DJs and producers striving to recapture the spirit of "classic" house stretches a mile long, but when Liv Spencer (who is also part of DFA project Still Going) and Saheer Umar came together as House of House and dropped the "Rushing to Paradise" single in early 2009, they nailed it. Their stripped-down, soulful piano-house epic quickly became one of those impossible-to-find pieces of vinyl, a problem only recently resolved by the track's reissue, which also includes a new remix by the legendary DJ Harvey. The follow-up single is in the works, as are who-would-have-thunk-it remixes for Crookers and Robbie Williams.
