Housey Doingz was a sort of pre-millennial super crew of London producers and DJ’s (Dave Coker, Dave Pine, Justin Bailey, Laurant Webb, Nathan Coles, Terry Francis), movers and shakers on the capital’s tech-house scene. The latter half of the decade into the first half of the noughties belonged to the exciting future looking and stripped down sounds that were emanating from now cult labels like Wiggle, Swag, Surreal etc. The Housey Doingz crew were at the centre of this scene and sound, but ‘Doing It’ from 1997 and released on the Pagan label predates and showcases a plethora of sonic styles that later became synonymous with that scene. Borderline ‘Progressive’ numbers like this corking EP are real beauties and found themselves in the boxes of the top jocks of that world and more (see: Sasha, John Digweed & co). A beautifully diverse collection of cuts right here, and a very rare and sought after slab of wax among record collecting circles. For a real flavour of what was to come ‘Doing It’ is a dope look through the window of one of London’s most exciting electronic music scenes.
‘Doing It’ has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of the Housey Doingz massive and was remastered by London’s Curve Pusher from the original DAT’s especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to you by the caring folks at your favourite reissue label – Mint Condition!
