Keeping Things Reel EP

Label: Bounce House Recordings
EP: Keeping Things Reel EP
Artists: DK Watts & Sturdus, Mr. Cardboard, Flo van O, Cjei If
Catalog: BHEP49
Release Date: 12 May 2014

It’s been a busy year thus far at the Bounce House Headquarters as we approach the label’s 50th release.  But right before we hit that half-century milestone, we have this 4-tracker up!

1. DK Watts & Sturdus – Dreaming
DK Watts teams up with Sturdus (aka Darren Sturdy) for a deep-tech groover that pulls yah back to the late 90’s scene.  Lush chords and a soulful vocal keep things on the deep tip.

2. Mr. Cardboard – Stacy
Grenoble, France-based producer Mr. Cardboard joins the Bounce House family with a massive tech-house jam that we just had to have.  Tons of energy in this one!

3. Flo van O – Let’s Not
Newcomer and Amsterdam-based producer Florian van Overmeer releases his debut track complete with some amazing piano and synth work.  It’s a track that you can get lost in, especially on the dance floor.

4. Cjei If – Herb is a Plant
Another Amsterdammer joins the family with a straight-up Chicago jacker that is DJ Sneak-esque.  The vocal drops tell the rest of the story!

Trevor Vichas back in the house!

Label: Bounce House Recordings
EP: That Feeling
Artist: Trevor Vichas
Remixers: DK Watts, Kenny Summit, Terry Vernixx
Catalog: BHEP45
Release Date: 30 September 2013

Trevor Vichas makes a return to Bounce House Recordings with a disco and funk-fueled stomper that grabbed our attention at the Bounce House headquarters immediately.  Trevor, a native of Portland, Oregon, has been churning out some head-turning productions the past 4-5 years and we are happy to have him back on the label.  For remixers we added Good For You Records label boss and regular chart topper Kenny Summit.  Kenny, who is now based in LA, puts his signature sampling stamp down on his version of “That Feeling” that literally does time-warp you back to 1975.  Underground head and New Mexico native Terry Vernixx makes his debut on Bounce House with a straight-up 4 on the floor deep, groover.  Quality track by a quality producer!  And rounding things out, Bounce House main man DK Watts keeps his remix on the deep tip for the late-night house heads.

New artist Mesake on Bounce House


EP: Madness

Artist: Mesake feat. Rita
Remixers: Adam Collins, DK Watts, Johannes, Low Cool, Sean Johnson
Catalog: BHEP43
Release Date: 19 August 2013

Bounce House heads to the Baltics this time, discovering up-and-coming Lithuanian artist Mesake.  The vocals to “Madness”, are performed by Rita, whose mysterious voice reeled us in immediately. The track is sung in her native Lithuanian tongue and roughly translates to English like this: “In the dark a streak of light is playing and in the song there is one note lost. It seems that the sun is becoming bigger, everyone has changed and everyone has become angry.”
For remixers, we brought on some serious talent.  Adam Collins (courtesy of Euphoria Records), drops a primetime groover that pushes the deep and tech house parameters.  Collins also teams up with production partner Chris Clepper as Low Cool (courtesy of Euphoria Records) with an analog gem.
Label boss DK Watts churns out a vocal and dub version for all hours of the night, while Johannes makes another return to Bounce House with a minimal, almost chillout style that would wobble anyone’s mind.
Dizzy Funk Music and Diesel City Recordings honcho Sean Johnson, rounds things out on the deep and funky tip with his wicked interpretation of “Madness”.

Konig im Exil on Bounce House

EP: Das Licht
Artist: Konig im Exil
Remixers: DJ Hal, DK Watts
Catalog: BHEP42
Release Date: 24 June 2013

König Im Exil (German for ‘king in exile’) is a musical endeavor influenced by minimal techno, krautrock, ambient, trance and electronic music pioneers from the 70′s and 80′s. The members (Robert Smit aka Sick Boy & Rodger Mettenday) joined forces in 2011 to create music from a different starting point than a commercial one. Separately the two König Im Exil founders scored commercial successes for acclaimed strongholds like Spinnin’ Records (NL) and Dim Mak Records (US). Their first combined achievements consisted of atmospheric remixes for Kill Hannah (Chicago, US) and Bomb the Bass (London, UK). Das Licht is the first original track being released with many more to follow.
For remix duty, Bounce House sought out industry stalwart DJ Hal fresh off his recent release on Get Physical.  The Nottingham, UK native has seen his name splashed on a number of top labels and Bounce House is happy to have him on board.
Rounding things out on the remix tip, label owner DK Watts churns out a deep groover primed for those early evening and morning sets.

Blasts from the Past – 10 years of Bounce House!

LP: Blasts from the Past
Artist: Short Bus Kids
Remixer: DK Watts
Catalog: BHLP01
Release Date: 29 April 2013

In 2003 DK Watts and Lance Leber joined forces as the Short Bus Kids and launched Bounce House Recordings.  In 10 years time the face of the music industry has shifted incredibly with vinyl giving way to digital downloads (mainly the mp3).  The early Bounce House releases on vinyl were essential in putting the Short Bus Kids on the map, before the label fully embraced the digital age. In the past decade many noted artists have worked with Bounce House (Da Sunlounge, Kinky Movement, Alexander East, Rob Pearson, Al Bradley and Oded Nir to name a few) as well as many up-and-comers.  The label has been supported by a number of top club and radio DJs worldwide and has been recognized by industry magazines such as I DJ Magazine, De:Bug, Chicago 5, DJ Mag and DMC.

To celebrate 10 years of Bounce House, label owner DK Watts has remixed and edited select Short Bus Kids tracks mainly from the label’s vinyl days.  The album also includes a bonus previously unreleased track (The Way) as well as remasters of 2 other top Short Bus Kids tracks (Workin and Gotta Get Up).

We hope you enjoy this album and we appreciate the support you have given us in the past 10 years.  Here’s to the next 10 years!
