There were 3000 ADE samplers stuffed in my inbox until it blew apart, and this is the only one I’m featuring. Vibe Boutique is a label managed by Brigetta Dunson and their 2017 sampler features a tidal wave of strong tracks from a star spangled roster. The sixteen track Vibe Boutique Records ADE 2017 features music from industry legends Glenn Underground, Fish Go Deep, Reelsoul, Mark de Clive-Lowe and Jaidene Veda. They didn’t just buy a slate of second-hand tracks from famous names, either: Crackazat, Homero Espinosa (on the remix), Ross Couch and Anthony Mea have some of the most bangin’ tracks on here.

“Sakura” by Glenn Underground and Loftsoul is melodic and beautiful; Reelsoul sexy up a soulful house track from Marc Cotterell and Doreen Younglove; Ross Couch touches on some late-’90s/early-’00s vibes with “I Remember,” a deliriously delicious vocal track. Crackazat’s “What You’re Feeling” closes it out with earth-shaking key stabs and vocal thunder. As far as the soulful side of House Music in late 2017, you can’t do much better than this.
