Funk? Soul? Disco? Some crazy vocal lines? Yeah, this has it - all. If you're a a fan of groovy Disco House - mostly on the slower side (120-ish), you gotta grab this. First, you will listen to the...
We have another potential blockbuster with this cut. Hot on the heels of his Strictly Rhythm release "Sinfonia Della Notte" (which is still in heavy rotation around the globe), Dennis brings it home to his Objektivity label. The track...
The original is perfect if you dig the funk. Quick saxophone honks and simple keys drift in and out of this one. There's some odd, guitar-like break for 16 bars, which I'd never like on its own but it...
Netherlands duo Dutchican Soul really turn it out on this rockin' new release from Miguel Migs' fantastic Salted imprint. The duo's classic House style takes you right to the dance floor with the title cut "Got To Get Down"....
When you grab the bassline from Fingers Inc. "Mystery of Love" and a the vocals from a popular Jesse Jackson speech intertwined with some drums that keep moving throughout the track and add a couple different synths in the...
I don't know that there's a more prestigious label out there now than Soulheaven, and they proudly stamp their name on this collaboration between their resident DJ Andy Ward and Estonian siren Sofia Rubina. "Streets of Sun" is simply...
Incredible. DJ Boxx is a name well known to locals but he may as well hire a booking agent now - after this track finishes making its way around the world, he's going to need one. Carla Prather delivers...
Catching up with vocalist Linda Clifford
As people said about French actress Sarah Bernhardt, Barbara Tucker could probably sing the names out of a phonebook and make it an anthem. Instead, Alix Alvarez in his choice remix of Tucker + Tuccillo's "One Desire" builds a...
This track has been pirated almost since WMC ended. I'm not sure if that's an indication of the tremendous vibe around this song or what, but Strictly released it on its own, with no remixes, quite possibly to get...
This vinyl pressing by DJ Sneak appears to contain some forgotten edits from yesteryear, exhibiting the funky cut-up sound of '90s underground House that made such a dramatic impact on some of today's younger producers. Of the four tracks,...
Danism hits a home run with this EP. "Try" is an older track presented here both in original form as well as a stunning pair of David Harness remixes. "Just Let It Happen" and "LaLa" are more on the...
You don't have to ask yourself if Dimitri From Paris loves what he does. His name is on so many productions, comps, remixes and other projects these days that you can tell this guy lives and breathes the 4/4...
Anyone that's seen her live can tell you that CeCe Peniston's voice is as good - and I'd say even better - than it was in the late 1980s, and this record proves that she's still got it. This...
The reality is that 90% of people who dream of having a career in music, whether it be Producer/Singer/DJ, etc., will never make it to the level they dream of. It takes a lot of hard work and determination...
This is a simple yet effective track from the Amsterdam duo that will be eternally known for their anthem "Give It Up" under their The Fog moniker. Minimum drum structuring along with a 4 note keyboard line are accentuated...

Atnarko: Deep EP

This is the third release on LA-based S.O.W.A.T. Music and the 2nd by Atnarko - an impressive run for a label that just debuted four or five months ago. The original mix is a funky house stomper with high...
Atnarko and Jevne combine here for an original production (interestingly, all of the four released remixes are done by others) on Onethirty, Jevne's home imprint. This is a juicy slab of funky house and most of the remixes that...
Aphrodisiax are a relatively new combo out of west London, made up by the DJ/production team of Gavin Peters and Sy Sez and generating a lot of heat from the likes of Phil Asher, Louie Vega and the like....
Brand new on T's Box is this club shaker featuring "RC Groove" (read: Ron Carroll), vocalist Pam and Terry himself on a couple of remixes. It's released under the moniker "Blackstory" - not sure what that means but this...
