Forgotten Treasure NYC Peech Boys “Come On, Come On” (1984)

I was introduced to this song a few months ago on a trip to my favorite records store. When the co-owner saw me grabbing that 12″, he looked at me dead in the eye and said “This is the best Larry Levan production ever made”. I wasn’t familiar with it …

Forgotten Treasure: Tia Carrere “I Wanna Come Home With You Tonight” (1993)

A big challenge for me would be to choose my ultimate favorite Masters At Work remix. Tough choice indeed. They were just on fire for the most part of the 1990′s decade! One thing that I know for sure is that their early remixes between 1991-1993 were just flowing so …

  Below are the liner notes from Numero Group‘s 94 East chapter of Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound. “If You See Me” is also available on 45″. “Pepé Willie was more of a sapling than a seed when he arrived in Minneapolis in the early ’70s. Raised in Brooklyn, …

Forgotten Treasure: Strong Souls “Sensual Let’s Work” (1993)

This one is really close to my heart. A very obscure release that I’m very surprised that very few people play. Strong Souls is a rare Larry Heard project that was released on Black Market in 1993. That release followed his essential LP on major label MCA and a few …

Forgotten Treasure: Free Love Foundation “The Sound” Kerri Chandler Remix (1993)

If you were heavily into UK Garage and 2 Step around 1997-1998, you might be familiar with 4 Liberty records. They had major releases out from Dreem Teem, Colour Girl and Underground Solution amongst others. Let’s rewind 4 years earlier when US Garage was king and laid the foundation for …

Forgotten Treasure: Dreamer G “I Got That Feeling” (1992)

Every now and then I get into one of these 90′s Deep House moods which happens to be all the rage right now. Like anything else, the wrong kinda deep house music can be very boring and disposable; the line between great stuff and that loungy elevator house thing is …

Forgotten Treasure: Dur-Dur Band “Dooyo” (1987)

You know when you are just scanning through hundreds of songs and albums just to find one you actually like. And with every track that passes you become more and more depressed because nothing is jumping out at you. Sometimes, listening to songs that are a 7/10 becomes as dreadful …

Forgotten Treasure: The Poets “Emotion” (1993)

The origin of this track is a bit strange. Taken from an obscure Italo House EP from 1993, “Emotion” definitely has more of a New-Jersey House feel than a sun drenched mediterranean piano house song you’d hear coming out of Italy in the mid 90′s. In fact, it sounds like …

Here’s what we’ve found so far: Sergio …
