Have you ever seen videos of European megaclubs with men with sharp hair and women with sharp breasts dancing like decapitated birds between laser beams and glo-sticks? This track is pretty much an epitome of the kind of soulless...
This three song release by DJ Motion features a pretty wide range of sounds. "Born in Summer" is a classic jack track - perfect for the lull between two crowd slayers, it's simple, direct and to the point. "Cloudsplitter"...
This column is quickly becoming a Phil Asher lovefest, but the man simply releases so much must-have music that passing it up would be a tragedy of omission. "Runnin'" was featured on a mix contributed by Phlash back in...
This is an awesome cut up by the Texas duo Backseat Bingo. The original mix is impossibly funky and perfect for that transcendental moment when people can't help but to throw their hands in the air. Some DJs need...
The title track "Blue Light Special" is probably my favorite track of the trio: jazzy, happy, melodic. It puts you in the mind of a warm Spring night in the city - wherever you live. Check out the swingin'...
Right on the heels of the exciting "Twilight People", Robert Owens is back, delivering fresh vocals alongside sizzling techy production by Atjazz, and Slope! You might rock all three interpretations over the course of an evening, and you won't...
Note: The 5 Magazine DJ Series was a monthly CD series released in a limited edition from March 2007 to November 2008. We featured mixes from legends such as Frankie Knuckles, Gene Hunt and Terry Hunter to the next...
Considering I've seen that city's name in two tracks that have come across my desk in the last few days, it must be time for the Winter Music Conference again. "Miami Soul" is actually a neat little track -...
Anyone that needs evidence that Andre Harris is a rising force in House Music - not just in Chicago but worldwide - need look no further than this mega-funky disco track. The composition here is gorgeous - slap bass,...
This is a nice, breezy track, strictly on the Deep House side from Plus Groove out of Toronto. It's not a vocal in the traditional sense - more like jazz scat, making sounds as an instrument with a vibrant...
Probably the best remixing from Fred Everything since the job he did with Iz and Diz's "Magnificent", his mix of this track by Atnarko (from Florida) has been circulating on CDR bootlegs for a long time and finally surfaced...
In his more than forty years in the business, Dr. Bob Jones has seen dance music trends come and go. Whether he's selecting music for his worldwide gigs, or an underground radio show, he remains consistent by sticking to...
FOR THE HOUSE MUSIC faithful there are few places on the planet more sacred than Gramaphone Records. For decades it has been the source from which Chicago's House sound has flowed. Luminaries such as Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Ralphie...

Gant Man Interview

Cajmere caused a stir a year ago with the release of the "Shake and Pop" remixes on Relief. Among the edits by DJ Sneak, Dealer and Mark Grant was a pair of remixes by Gant Garrard who, like Cajmere/Green...
The original mix of DJ M-Traxxx's "House Thunda" is hard and simple as you might expect from a release on DJ Pierre's label Afro Acid. It's probably best considered a transitional tune in a harder set. The XXXtra...
It was tough to decide between the second package of remixes of "So Lonely" and "I Go Deep" for this month's editor's pick, but if I couldn't pick this one, I was at least going to make sure it...
Bear Who

Bear Who and the Beatbox

A lot of people see me as different characters when I walk into a club. I'll hear, "Man I see this guy everywhere! Who's Bear? Bear Who?" Exactly!
I'm also not sure about the release info on this one, but hopefully it gets a wide release. It's downtempo and shows off some virtuoso work on the ivories. Actually, I'm not sure "downtempo" is a great description -...
