Pete Dafeet unleashes the first single, 'Wife', taken from his debut album 'The Root, The Soul', dropping in June. Forthcoming on his own Lost My Dog Records, 'Wife' is a slab of piano house, loaded with a hook laced with early-90s Balearic Ibizan vibes. Nacho Marco’s remix adds steel to the original as TR-303 and 909 join forces to drive energy levels skywards. The package also features the album title track 'The Root, The Soul' which comes with Dafeet synthology and a dreamy vocal that glides over a groovy house beat.
Nacho Marco first hooked up with Lost My Dog back in 2009 remixing Pete Dafeet's 'Alto', returning a year later to deliver a stripped back take on Bang Bang's 'Susan Cries'.
“I recorded 'Wife' in the run up to my wedding in 2013. It’s a feel-good anthem and will forever remind me of a blissful, carefree summer. The release has been a long time coming but it’s
great to finally get it out there!" - Pete Dafeet
Pete’s label Lost My Dog – started in 2005 with friends Ian Straker and Najan Ward - will celebrate 10 years in business, and will then issue its final release: Pete’s debut studio album 'The Root, The Soul'.
Having DJ'd since his mid-teens, Pete's early forays into production as a 20 year old were catching the eye of Yousef, Lottie and Blakkat, while Najan owned the local record shop and employed Ian as a part-time buyer. The three put their heads together and Lost My Dog was born. In the decade since, Lost My Dog has matured into possibly one of the UK's leading deep house imprints with AtJazz, Ian Pooley and Robert Owens featured on releases.
House artists including Laurent Garnier, Danny Krivit, Norman Jay MBE, DJ T, Huxley and Maya Jane Coles have championed the label. In keeping with LMD, Pete's own productions have also made an impact.
'The Root, The Soul' is the fulfilling of Pete’s long held ambition to write a long-player. Recorded during a year that saw him engaged and married, it’s a living memory of a very happy time - and has already found fans in Chez Damier, Ian Pooley and Charles Webster.
The decision to close Lost My Dog after a decade of success was – in truth – a relatively easy one. 10 years is a long time, the lads are scattered across the UK and as with most 30-somethings, priorities have changed.
