Luke McKeehan’s Nordic Trax is taking a well-deserved victory lap this month with 20 Years of Nordic Trax, a spectacular retrospective of new and exclusive tracks. The release celebrates the Vancouver-based house imprint’s two decades in the game. What’s distinguished the label is McKeehan’s unwavering dedication to releasing innovative house music, ignoring fleeting trends in favor of supporting music that push the musical conversations forward.
We’re honored to world premiere the exclusive track “Northern Spirit” from Spanish DJ/producer Nacho Marco, a supremely talented artist whose body of work for top labels like Ovum Recordings, Madhouse and We Play House fluidly channels the underground pulse of New York, Chicago, and Detroit.
On “Northern Spirit” the Loudeast Records boss crafts a rousing uptempo masterpiece boasting plucky piano, swirling synth stabs and a smooth groove that’s easy like Sunday morning.
Get a first listen below and pick up the milestone compilation — which features tracks and mixes by Mark Farina, Cristoph, The Revenge, Jon Delerious and Gavin Froome — on December 8.
