Janis Guckes is a friendly musician from Frankfurt. His love of music has led him to many a band and project. Socialized in the Robert Johnson Club, where he found his way to club music in the late nineties, he now produces excellent House in his own kitchen. He also runs a label with two friends, “House Is OK”, where he released his first records. Stylewise, he feels at home just in just about any box – and on Mirau 018, he pulls out his heavy, vast coffer of house music. On the “Forgiveness EP”, substantial Detroit numbers shuffle into line on a timeless 12inch. Janisʼ seemingly impulsive way of putting together grooving, tilting tracks hits a nerve; everything falls into place. In honest, brave lines, he sketches out a feeling that we canʼt help but live.
