The heartbeat of club culture

Tap into the genre that has become foundational to global dance music. From Chicago to NYC, across the Atlantic and back again, HIGHER PLACE channels the ever-influential sound of classic US house. Taking in house’s varied offshoots and rich history, it covers deep, energetic, soulful, mid-tempo and everything in between – created with a thoughtful selection of the genre’s most iconic synths and drum machines. Craft a classic 90s sound or inform current dance, pop, or hip hop productions with original house elements.

HIGHER PLACE was created in collaboration with multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer, Alexkid and his team: Brawther, Okain, Garrett David, Robin Ordell. Additional content by Monty Luke, Christophe Darbouze, Binofski, and Thilini.
