Forgotten Treasure: The Crowns “How Can He Lead You” (1977)

A couple of weeks ago, the homie Lexis and I were spinning a brunch gig together and he said something I instantly connected with and knew I’d share with you: “As a music lover, there’s nothing more frustrating than attending an entire DJ set without feeling compelled to walk up …

Future Classic: Convertion “Let’s Do It” Feat. Leroy Burgess (Louie Vega Remix)

March 2nd cannot come soon enough. A few months ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Louie Vega (half of Masters At Work) for an amazing project I’m working on and will soon announce. While we were busy packing up, he told me about a secret little project of his …

DOC’TRIN presents: “Lonely Lovers IV” (The Restraining Order Edition)

Shortly after we completed the Lonely Lovers trilogy last year, Lexis and I thought it would be a good idea to vitalize future V-Day mixtapes with additional challenges.  Don’t ask why, but one of the first sub-themes to surface from this great discussion (read: silly textathon) was a “Restraining Order …

Forgotten Treasure: Edward Louis “Holy Spirit” (2000)

When it comes to scanning “spiritual house” music, I am almost equally excited as I am deterred. Part of me is eager to hear extremely energetic hooks, super-talented vocalists, funky baselines and infectiously uplifting themes, while my other side braces itself for the musical equivalent of potpourri: tacky lyrics, “soulful” …

Forgotten Treasure: Doug Randle “Songs For the New Industrial State” (1970)

For anyone out there who’s feeling the the cold-weather blues, the global-issues blues, the “how-did-I-already-break-my-New-Years-resolution?” blues or any other form of despondency, here is something that will hopefully produce (at the very least) a quick, distracting and delightful daydream. Warm In The Sunshine is a radiantly optimistic psych-pop tune by …

Future Classic: Rollrgrrl “Repent”

I never thought I’d see the day where my friend’s mom makes it to the MIMS front page! Working hard as a hairdresser during the day, she slaves away at sluggish sizzurp-fueled beats after dark, desperately trying to overpower the harmful side-effects from old-lady perm fumes. It’s a hard-knock life, …

Forgotten Treasure: J.J Barnes “You Owe It To Yourself” (1973)

I’m dedicating this write-up to Sam Shepherd (aka: Floating Points) as he’s set to spin a 5 hour set in Montreal this evening, which will most likely include (but not be limited to) quality gems from his enthusiastic and extensive collection of Soul, Funk and R&B. Born Again is an …

Forgotten Treasure: Sizzle “Keep On Tryin” (1984)

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: Sergio Cuevas “The Artistry of Sergio Cuevas” (1969)

Tuesday morning mystery: Who is Sergio Cuevas? Seriously, we would really like to know. There’s a surprisingly insignificant amount of online information regarding this legendary musician, so if any of our readers out there have any leads, you know where to reach us. Here’s what we’ve found so far: Sergio …

Forgotten Treasure: Die Dominas “Die Wespendomina” (1981)

Sometimes the best music comes from rare German 10”s that posses eye-catching artwork, bizarre facts and unique collaborations. Other times, not so much. In the case of Die Dominas, we get an incredibly surreal and experimental record from a one-time-team-up between Manuel Göttsching (uncredited), friend Rosi Müller and designer Claudia …

Forgotten Treasure: Vick Lavender “Did You Really” (1999)

Happy New Year! I know it’s been a really long time since I wrote for MIMS World, but that was 2013 (which, at the risk of sounding superstitious, was a really weird ride). On to bigger and better things! As a reward for everyone’s patience, I’m unleashing one of my …
