Forgotten Treasure: Detroit Beatdown Compilation (2002)

These past couple of years there has a bit of a revival surrounding “slow” house and techno. Producers have been going back to tracks that are in the 105 to 115 bpm rather than techno and house (which usually is much faster at 125 – 130 bpm) and a brand …

Classic Mixes: MOVE D “Fact Mix 317”

We’re pretty picky when it comes to the kind of house music we love. There is a very fine line between the 95% of stuff we don’t like: too “big club” sounding, too tribal, too minimal, linear, generic and so on. But then we you hear something you like, house …

Future Classic: Andrew Ashong & Theo Parrish “Flowers”

For some reason I use the term “next-level” soul quite often even if I understand that’s it’s pretty much open to interpretation. When I use it I think of people like Shafiq Husayn and the Sa-Ra guys, Plantlife, Taylor Mcferrin, Spacek and so on. To me it’s the kind of …

Forgotten Treasure: Kerri Chandler “Rain” (1998)

Ok, so there is a bit of a hidden agenda behind this pick. Yes, “Rain” is a certified house anthem, the first track that made me discover Kerri Chandler 10 years ago and then made me want to back track all the way back to the early 90’s to check …

Disclosure Mix on Mary Anne Hobbs’ XFM Show

I must say that amidst this whole wave of nostalgia with the whole 90’s house and garage sound there are very few productions that truly stand out. The one thing that is generally lacking from most of these releases is quite simply originality. I hate listening to a song that …
