Adaptation’s 110th release sees Tom Conrad back this time with a jazzy jackin Chicago house track entitled ‘Sativa Sundae’. Early support from DJ Spen, Mr V, Lars Behrenroth, Vinny Da Vinci, Bertrand Dupart, Andy Compton, Chemars and more.

If you’re a fan of funk, jazz and house, then the fusion that is ‘Sativa Sundae’ may be for you. Tom made this as a tribute to some of the best jazz keys players that have ever graced this planet in the 50s, 60s and 70s in the U.S, who got some of their inspiration for jamming and live performances from that thing we also refer to as sativa. From an intro of deep soulful rhodes piano to a funky live bassline, the track turns into a jazzy rhodes fest that you can’t help but move to. One for the Chicago House heads.

Adaptation’s first release of 2021 is a single from Tom Conrad featuring Chemars entitled ‘The Dreamtime’ which is a fusion of both Soulful and Jackin House with early support from John ‘Jellybean’ Benitez, Quentin Harris, Eric Kupper, Mr V and more.

After a brief hiatus of using his own name for productions, Tom Conrad returns alongside fellow European producer Chemars with a dreamy, uplifting and atmospheric fusion of deep, soulful and jackin house with influences of 80s soul complete with live rhodes and bass. This is one not to miss!

The last year saw Tom create a hip hop album under his ‘Thylacinus’ alias and put out several deep house releases under his ‘Caliorange’ alias alongside Matt Correa following on from his last Adaptation release ‘Twisted Jazz EP’. The new year heralds a busy production schedule on multiple fronts so look out for plenty more music over the coming months.

“DOPE…Here’s to the next 100!!!””
VINNY DA VINCI (METRO FM / HOUSE AFRIKA)

Adaptation Music’s landmark 100th release is nothing short of epic with music from Roland Nights, Bernard Badie, Finest Wear, Lucas Keizer, Feint Young Son and Gruv Basement. There should be something for everyone here, with deep, jackin, soulful and classic house sounds on offer.

After joining us for our 50th release, Roland Nights is back for our landmark 100th with another deep jackin house cut of Tom Conrad & Mr V’s ‘Sign of the Times’, with an infectious bassline and killer strings. With several Traxsource #1 singles to his name, Roland Nights has been producing music for numerous labels such as Large Music, PIV Records, King Street & Lost My Dog over the last decade.

Denver based DJ and producer Lucas Keizer has reworked the D-Reflection and Christa’s ‘Make Believe’ and what a fantastic remix it is. With all the elegance and beauty of the original, Lucas reworks it into a classy deep house cut. Having been on labels such as Large Music, Salted, PIV Records, Guesthouse and Tango, Lucas’ music is widely supported throughout the scene from the likes of Mark Farina, John Digweed, Dubfire and DJ Dan.

London based Finest Wear provides an old school deep house remix of Tom Conrad and Dawn Tallman’s ‘So Happy’ which was one of Adaptation Music’s early releases. Finest Wear will no doubt be a very familiar name to fans of deep house and his classic sound can usually be found on Large Music and Nordic Trax.

If you’re a fan of the Murk Records, Danny Tenaglia or Twilo sound from yesteryear, then Bernard Badie ‘Bones’ will be right up your street. The bluesy main vocal from Muphan and backing vocals from Dajae and Olandus sit on top of a dark driven late night vibe with a classic sound. Raised in Chicago and now residing in Atlanta, Bernard’s been releasing music since 1991 under various monikers alongside Larry Heard and various vocalists including the legendary Dajae on labels such as Defected, Cajual, Mojuba and more.

Feint Young Son is the new alias of one half of Studioheist, who does a stellar peak time deep jackin house remix of Yan Gordo’s ‘Take It Easy’ which is sure to be a hit with any discerning DJ. Manchester duo Studioheist will also be a familiar name to deep house fans with most of their music being found on Large Music along with the likes of King Street, Papa Records and Moulton Music.

Gruv Basement return to the label with a beautiful soulful rework of Sueno Soul and Denzie’s ‘What You Want’. The soulful scene isn’t often ventured into by Adaptation Music these days but we had to make an exception for the excellent Gruv Basement, whose jazz and soul infused sound is equal to that of the Chicago soulful house sound, by artists such as Glenn Underground.

Adaptation Music’s Tom Conrad returns to the label with the long awaited ‘Frankie’s Song’ following on from his last successful outing, ‘New York EP’ earlier in the year.

The song title is an ode to one of Tom’s biggest musical influences Frankie Knuckles, whose versatility and warmth of sound throughout his productions inspired this track. Tried and tested at numerous venues over the last year, ‘Frankie’s Song’ is a melodic beauty which comprises lush chords, infectious leads and a sound somewhere between New York and Ibiza.

Watch out for several more EPs and singles over the coming months from Tom on Adaptation Music and several other labels as he continues to establish himself with his consistency and progression within the realms of deep and jackin underground house music.
