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: Jay Shaw “Outre Manche EP” (Rutilance Recordings)

I tend to be really picky when it come down to those new 90’s sounding tracks. Over the last year two French labels have really made an impression on my often hard to please ears : KV Records (Kool Vibe label, I’ll share something of theirs soon) and Rutilance Recordings. …

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 …
