The current house boom is transforming the links between the underground and the mainstream.
Take Tee Circus - once a terror on the pirates, the DJ is now a staple on 1Xtra and Rinse. With his buoyant, fresh-faced sound, the producer is able to piece together an expertly constructed sense of atmosphere with shuffling, summer-built rhythms.
Working with Space + Time Records, new release 'Just Me' / 'Parachute' finds Tee Circus matching these two sides of his ability.
Clash is able to premiere 'Just Me' and its a dancefloor crusher. Built around blissful house textures and a jackin' rhythm, there's plenty of subtlety amidst its day-glo tones.
Opening with plenty of lush, ambient textures, the sprung bassline nods towards UK garage with the whole piece tailored for peak time use.
