One of the first DJ sets we ever posted just to post it - we didn't have a series, or a name, and frankly it was hard to even get a 60 minute+ DJ mix to play on the...
Archived 2008 mix from Phil Asher aka Phlash and Friends.
MAURICE JOSHUA IS A Chicago native that's been circling the limelighted House block since his pupil-dilating classic anthem, "This is Acid" in 1988. Hot Hands Hula's vocals on the track, "Once you hear it, there will be no going...
Boo Williams teams up with vocalist Cei Bei with an assist from Glenn Underground on drums for this twisted-up throwback to an era of '70s soul with today's Deep House. The vocal brings to mind something like the Isley...
YouTube has made celebrities out of more than the sneezing panda and the bulldog on a skateboard. Three months ago, Scott Hobbs, an engineering student at the University of Dundee, UK, posted video clips of a revolutionary new product...

DJ Sneak: Dry Rub

DJ Sneak's sound is pretty timeless by now; if you like his past releases, you'll probably get into this one as well. "Marijuana" is classic Sneak, with a heavier than heavy bass, clean drums and a sound that remains...

This track generated some heat at WMC, and Feelin Music appears to be putting a full-court press on to get this track on the world's dancefloors before summer is out. With a long time between the promo release and...
I received this track in Miami from Mr. Black Coffee himself. I already knew of Mr. Coffee through his hit "Even Though" on Real Tone, but what I didn't know is that this man is one of South Africa's...
We're treated to a meaner side of Jihad Muhammand here - no jazzy stuff going on. Not that we don't appreciate it when he does it, but this one is a full-on nightclub banger! Big room with an underground/soul...
Deep House artists Converge (aka Stephen Brown and Ray Fenwick) have this five track EP to offer from the UK. The sound varies intensely from song to song. "Come On Over" is deep and loungey, with just a simple...
A BOY SURROUNDED by legendary rock stars, treating them as the neighborhood patron at his father's restaurant. A teen whose DJ career launched at the age of 14 after being handed a James Brown promo. A young man inspired...
I couldn't believe that Kathy Brown was covering a bubblegum ballad from Debbie ("Pat's Daughter") Boone... and thankfully, she isn't. This track features soaring vocals with a touch of disco (can anything Kathy Brown sings not be?) that's sure...
