Ahead of his DJ set this summer at the Hidden Palace stage hosted by Heist Recordings (featuring Detroit Swindle, Honey Dijon and Henry Wu), we reached out to Manchester-based producer Adesse Versions aka Kevin Gorman to forge together a multi-faceted mix of sun flecked soul, funk, jazz and deep house.
Adesse Versions started out as a simple re-edit series in 2014, with humble ambitions of self releasing a few hand stamped white labels. However the project kept growing, with original productions and remixes appearing amongst the edits. Tracks such as "Baayi", "Pressured" and "Modall" have found favour with icons such as Derrick May, Larry Heard and Gilles Peterson. Along with his deep root in house-oriented work, he runs as a former mainstay of the techno world. His music graced labels such as Curle, Ostgut Ton and his own imprint Mikrowave.
To offer further insight into his mix, track selection and overall atmosphere, Kevin has written a few words below.
