Jodeci – Freak’n You (MK Dub)

Every Freaking Night Freak'n You

This is probably my favourite version of the infamous b-more club ‘every freaking night’ vocal sample. So, when I went to buy it on iTunes, and realised it was up as a free download, it made me pretty happy. So, I thought I’d share it with the rest of you. Enjoy.

Jodeci – Freek’ N You (M.K. Dub)

Egg Sample

sample house Riva Starr Black Mama Lowrider

Two great tracks, and two examples of great sampling. First up is Christian Fischer’s Lowrider, which samples War’s 1975 hit Low Rider, and  does so beautifully.

Christian Fischer – Lowrider (Original Mix)

Next up is a track from Riva Starr’s 2010 album If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade on Made To Play. It’s quite unlike Riva Starr’s other stuff in my opinion, stripped down, with a big 808 kick, and contains a big sample from Lafayette Afro Rock Band’s Darkest Light.

Something on a real old school tip

90s 90's house classic old skool old school

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I have loads of music for you all, but have been having problems uploading audio to WordPress, so haven’t been able to post as often as I’d like. Anyway.

90s house. It’s a timeless formula, and classics like these still getting played in big sets today is testament to that. These track span 1992 to 2005, so it’s not strictly all 90s house, but how much the house of that time influenced dance music afterwards means we can extend the 90s for a good few years when it comes to house. Enjoy.

Head In The Clouds

Here’s a round-up of some of what I’ve been feeling latest, brought to you by the magic of Soundcloud, because my WordPress Audio Player has been super buggy lately, hence not posting much.

Big tune forthcoming on Swamp81 by Boddika, who is definitely looking like being one of the best producers of 2011.

One of the biggest tunes to be played all night on the Boiler Room last Tuesday, Jack Dixon – Coconuts, forthcoming on Inhale. Expect yourself to sing ‘badooey badooey badooey’ to yourself for the rest of the week.

Forthcoming on Blunted Robots, one of the biggest tunes of 2010 is still unreleased, and is still tearing up clubs around the UK. Dark Sky is another to look out for in 2011, if you don’t already know all about him!

The ever amazing Julio Bashmore has just dropped another gem, his remix of High Powered Boys’ new EP on Sound Pellegrino. With the loss of Institubes, Sound Pellegrino it set to become a fully fledged label, and another new label, Marble Music, also rises from the ashes. If this release is anything to go on, 2011 will be a good year for the 2 labels!

This last one comes from one of my favourite Dublin DJs/promoters, Marcus, of Ignored Playaz. He dropped this last night before Nguzunguzu at Chewn, and reminded me just how good it was. Peep his next Ignored Playaz night, with the massive line-up of Addison Groove & Jam City! Even page here.

 

Efdemin – There Will Be Singing (DJ Koze Remix)

It seems these days that DJ Koze can do no wrong. I first got to know him through his brilliant album Music Is Okay, which is very musically different to his other releases, so I’m always pleasantly surprised every time he comes out with tracks like these. His newest remix is already gathering big hype, and it’s well deserved. Pick it up on Beatport here.

So you have something to go home with, here’s one of my all-time favourite classic house records. Pressed in 1993 onto Strictly Rhythm, this gem stil gets slipped into sets all over, and is gathering new hype due to a forthcoming Ramadanman re-edit, which is sure to be huge.

Hardrive – Deep Inside

Money is Sweeter than Honey

Gnanmankoudji Horny Monster Mix house tech-house disco Laurent Garnier

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, it’s been a busy week, but I do have a few gems I picked up from BLOC. The first, a highlight of Laurent Garnier’s LBS live show, the second, a track that Joy Orbison played that took me a while to find, and the last I don’t quite remember who played, but it was written down in my phone, and I’m definitely happy it was. Enjoy.

Also, make sure to check the blog in the next few days, because I’ve an exclusive interview with Munchi coming up!

Adele Rolling In The Deep Cousin Cole Remix Jamie XX

I love the Jamie XX remix of Adele. But, it’s nice to have a change, and this is indeed a very nice change. Lovely remix, and very different to the Jamie XX shuffle that I, and many people are so used to hearing.

Adele – Rolling In The Deep (Cousin Cole Remix)

This is one of those remixes I really didn’t expect. When I saw the title I didn’t really believe it, but yes, it actually is an Oliver Huntemann remix of Do It Again. And it works. Deep and brooding, but with that lovely vocal.
