Future Classic: Awanto3 “Pregnant”

Stephanie Mills is an artist I genuinely love, and apart from her soulful Boogie Funk style, it is her unique voice that steals my heart away. The first Stephanie Mills track I ever heard was You Can’t Run From My Love (1982 – produced by Mtume) and I adore this …

Mix of the Day: Seb Diamond & Kyle Kalma “Neon Podcast 11″

With only 1/3 of the summer left to go here is a mix you need to add to the “to-listen” pile, preferably on a sunny day. The mix is part of the NEON series, a collective who have been running some (most) of Montreal’s great electronic music events since 1998. …

Forgotten Treasure: In Touch ft. Ce Ce Rogers “No Love Lost” Lost Mix (1994)

In a perfect world this would have been a crossover smash hit. In reality this was not even close to be a minor hit. This might be due to the fact that the best version was never included on the commercial release. The title of this mix – Lost Mix …

Forgotten Treasure: Blaze ‎”25 Years Later” (1990)

The album “25 Years Later” by Blaze is one of the best kept secrets on legendary Motown label. This soulful house release could be easily put next to the greatest 60’s & 70’s record from that legendary label without feeling like its out of place. In the words of my …

Future Classic: Lee Webster “Detroit Cheeky Things”

Other than too much commentary about his mighty member and describing himself as a heavenly creature who makes, “vagina music,” there is very little information floating around the interwebs about this German producer. His Resident Advisor biography simply states, “Is this where I’m supposed to tell you how big my …

Future Classic: Dj Fudge & Hallex M feat. Omar “Simpatico”

There’s something about Omar‘s voice that just conjures instant sunny vibes. Yes, the man Omar Christopher Lye-Fook has been blessing beats with his amazing voice since 1985.

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.

Future Classic: Terry Hunter “We Are One” (DJ Jazzy Jeff Remix)

I have to admit that the first time i heard this track, it was like a big (good) slap in my face and it had been a really long time since a song gave me goosebumps like that! We all know DJ Jazzy Jeff as one, if not, the best …
