Forgotten Treasure: Groove Chronicles “Stone Cold”

Straight up this is probably my favorite 2step track of all time. Yes, it does fall under the whole UK Garage family tree but it is probably one of the few tracks that describe what the whole 2step sub-genre was. Rolling bassli...

Future Classic: Lecrae “Long Time Coming”

Future Classic: LTJ X-Perience “Cry” (LTJ Rework)

A few weeks ago, I was on the hunt for a song I heard on a house mix, and all I had to go on was the artist name, LTJ (and not LTJ Bukem the British Drum n’ Bass artist I used to bump to in grade 9). This was some soulful dis...

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 s...
