This Side Up presents 'Thumbs Up' ep, the first release/compilation of the label, which showcases the artists forming the core of the label. Deep & tech house are the main ingredients of the tracks, which are the first releases for each artist.

Lee Fraged teams up with Pantal (aka dj Numark/Funxion) to create the detroit influenced, acid-tinged beats of 'Love Machine', a deep yet punchy tech track filled with a distinct luscious pad to give a melancholic touch and spur feelings of a mechanical-love-future. Too serious for you? Try the Double Trouble treat of two tracks. L17 has a summer feel with its deep bass, dubby effects & and delayed vocal snippets. Fetish on the other side drives a deeper way, west coast influenced, with the percussion keeping the pace and the deep male vocals, Xerxes style, showing the way. Linny Berret finishes off the pack, on a housier tone, with 'Deeper Luv', a basic track with a 4 on the floor old-skool tempo and a fluffy bassline complete with subtle vocals and an exotic melody.

Track 1 w+p by Lefteris Fragedis and Panagiotis Talianis
Tracks 2+3 w+p by Alexandros Akritopoulos
Track 4 w+p by Linny Berret

This release has been floating around with the catalog number TSU001, during August '07. Here is the proper release, with the right cover and correct notation. Sorry for the inconvenience! At least those of you who got it, now have a "collector's download" :)
