Ssg special - Keith Worthy
This week we are very happy to present a mix from Keith Worthy, who heads the Aesthetic Audio label out of Detroit. Without much fuss or hype, Keith has been quietly making and releasing some excellent music over the past couple of years. Since starting in 2007, Aesthetic Audio has prioritized quality over quantity: they may have only had 12 releases to date, but they are all very good records. Such an approach feels all the more necessary at a time when it is hard not to be overwhelmed by the never-ending stream of mediocre music flowing into record stores (physical and electronic) every week. So we like what Keith is doing... We got in touch at some point last year after the release of his "Moments In Rhythm Vol 2", one of the strongest deep house records of 2010. And as this new all vinyl mix from Keith clearly shows, the man is not only a good producer, he most definitely knows what to do behind the decks. Providing an upfront selection of new records, Keith has put together a tight, energetic mix of deep house.

As usual, we'll post the tracklist for this later. For any of our friends in/near Geneva, you can catch Keith at The Overground Festival, which is from 18th - 21st August. Aesthetic Audio 013 (The Hikari EP) is due in September, and Aesthetic Audio 014 (Moments in Rhythm vol. 3) is set for November. Keith is also working on an album for early 2012. So plenty to look forward to. For more information about Keith and Aesthetic Audio, check the new label homepage. Thanks again to Keith for the mix. Enjoy!
