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 …

10 Slept-on 90’s House Tracks You Don’t Know (Or Forgot!)

Almost everyone agrees that House music saw its finest hours in the 90’s. Like Hip-Hop it grew up in the 80’s but came of age in the 90’s when the sound started morphing in tons of different directions and influences: hip-house, french touch, disco house, garage and so on… It’s …

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 …

Future Classic: Deep 88 & Melchior Sultana “Track 3″

It’s funny (or ridiculous) how sometimes you get lost into music. When I had the chance to come across this project I had no clue who the artists were behind this release. Then I dug back to some new releases I picked up lately to realize I already had a …

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 …

Forgotten Treasure: The Untouchables aka Kenny Dope “Just Da Way U Want” (1994)

This is truly a special one. A true forgotten treasure which is connected by many others because of the sample it’s based on! A few years before Dilla exquisitely used Minnie Riperton‘s soul masterpiece “Inside My Love” for “The Look Of Love”, I was mesmerized by “Lyrics To Go” by …

For better or worse 2013 has seen a sudden resurgence of the early 90’s Deep House sound. For better because a new generation had the chance to discover that crucial moment in House music history. For worse because a lots of producers simply make tracks sampling or just plain looping …
