Forgotten Treasure: Scottie Deep Presents Daddy’s Mood “About You” (1994)

House music runs deep in the Kinchen Family. Mark “MK” Kinchen doesn’t needs no introduction. His lesser known brother Scott Kinchen deserves to be rediscover again.

This Saturday, I’ll be making another little road trip to Quebec City with my homie Felix aka: Le Laitier / Packity Schplurps / Luigi E. Schlumberger (yeah, don’t ask, hahaha). We’ve been recently spinning some sweet disco and house vibes at La Cuisine (one of the few spots in the …

Forgotten Treasure: Half A Mill “Any Day Can Be Your Last” (1993)

I found this myserious 12′ single in a dollar bin a few days ago and I don’t why I picked it up but I guess the Afro and $$ visuals caught my attention. Well I’m glad I did because this is some heavy heavy stuff from hip-hop’s golden era. NYC …

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 …

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 …

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 …
