From 2010

Nottingham based Producer and DJ Danny Berman (aka Red Rack’em/Hot Coins) has released a lot of high quality dance music in the last 3 years. The man Gilles Peterson describes as ‘not being able to put a foot wrong’ has showcased his abundant production and DJ skills in some pretty diverse corners. As Red Rack’em, Danny has released massive deep house tracks on Untracked, Deep Freeze, Hometaping, Shift and Undertones. He’s rocked Glastonbury, Snowbombing and Bestival, headlined a Boat Party at The Garden Festival and closed the Big Chill Festival with a legendary Monday morning set. He remixed ‘Forever In Their Debt’ by The Revenge and turned it into one of the key deep house tracks of 2009

Dannys Hot Coins disco project has been a similar success with EPs on Tirk and Society being well received and showcasing his unique approach to making disco music. The Hot Coins remix of Stand On The Word by the Joubert Singers was hammered by just about everyone including Greg Wilson who played it in every set in 2009. With a Hot Coins album being completed this year and a brand new remix of Ron Basejam hitting similar heights it looks like the best is yet to come from Bermans disco project.

So it’s with this backdrop that Bergerac was born. A new outlet for Dannys house tracks and album projects. The Early Years is a mixture of deep house, disco, Detroit tinged beatdown and electro boogie. The artwork is sourced from Dannys parents collection of family photos which act as a metaphor for the ‘early years’ of his music production. There’s also extensive sleeve notes which are only available on the CD, so it’s a bit of a collectors item. The vibe is deep, jazzy, housey, fresh, underground dance music.
