For Back Door Records latest compilation „Northern Shelter“, we see the label bring back a series of old friends from previous records alongside a bevy of new collaborators they wish to shine a light on. This record has a variety of sound that walks the lines between the more funky cuts of Deep House and a more raw classic House sound.
This record progresses from Atomyards unique, deep, lush and synthy beat „Coming Back From Jungle 51“ through the soulful dystopian „Sunday stroll“ by Mon all the way thru to the classic banger Yuh (Yeah Remix), a chicago style rip up from Blair Sound Design. This record feels like a set from a DJ at their peak, varied and united in equal measure.
This compilation was put together in support of children’s communities on the US border, with 50% of all profits going to Save The Children at a time when it is much needed. Alongside the digital release this record will be offering a limited tape cassette edition, strictly limited in numbers but something different for the collectors to pick up and enjoy.
Out this October on Back Door Records.

Artist (Label) Bio:
Beginning life in 2017, Back Door Records is an independent record label and mastering studio that provides the depth and timeless quality so often desired yet so difficult to obtain along your average city street . Nestled on the outskirts of Orlando, Florida, where the rampant commercialism of Disney and tourism are locked in a battle against the incessant heat and beat of the Panhandle, BDR lays back in the shade with a cool and clear focus on building its roster. They do this in collaboration with fresh, emergent artists from across the electronic dance music spectrum in tune with the Sunshine State’s hyperlocal and norm-defying musical history.
At the helm is Colombian-born producer and sound engineer David Uribe, best known under the moniker Dsum. Cutting his teeth as a DJ, vinyl collector and general raver since the late 1990’s, Uribe has an ear and eye for the classic sounds and shapes of house, techno and all underground permutations therein. Focusing primarily on artists from Latin America, the mission of Uribe and Back Door Records proves to be one born of a lifelong passion and dedication to the craft and culture of underground dance music and the worldwide community that contributes to its unquenchable spirit.
