JAZZ is the teacher

House head for life.. YES! But you can never forget where it all started? For me it was hip hop and when I found it, I found Soul and Jazz.. I have always liked Dorothy Ashby´s work and style, how she plays that harp. I´m not the only one because many, many producers have sampled her songs. This album is classic and almost all songs are ear candy (yes I said it). Just wanna share this lovely tune with you.

TUNE ALERT!!! New Ugly Edit is here! This nice disco edit series is made by Theo Parrish (If you didn't know that). These days those older edits are quite rare and you have to pay a lot of money if you want the original record. This new 12 inch is a classic, 100 % quality .. Especially I like Bumpman edit, listen to it.. dig it and finally buy it!

Nicholas & Nick Anthony.

These mysterious Italian producers Nicholas and Nick Anthony makes brilliant music!

Juno Records broke it down nicely:
Mystery producer Nicholas comes correct with the latest No More Hits twelve inch containing four splendid reworks drenched in retro 80s and 90s sounds.
Proceedings commence with the title track, which adds some raw house bump to the silky voiced 80s singers known for documenting extraordinary passionate events. A similar approach is adopted on the following track "Give You Love" which is dominated by the heavy diva vocal refrain, then dipped in a deep house groove that has more than a hint of mid 90s MAW about it. On the flip Nicholas teams up with fellow Italian synth obsessive Nick Anthony for the downright killer disco boogie of "I Know" which is dominated by the crisp 808 syncopation and hugging slapped bassline. The final track "Inside My Mind" adopts a proto house flex, with raw drums, tinny synth melodies and searching chords the backdrop to an array of looped up vocal hits.

San Soda is On Fire!!


This dude is on fire. Lookin´like teenager, but producing like a pioneer, strange combination.
I found this short net interview where he explains the early stage of his musical evolution.

What were your early experiences with music and how did you get into production?

I joined a local radio station at the age of 15 and started taking care of the sports section on Sunday afternoons with a friend of mine. Later on we started a weekly radio show and played mainstream music. Fascinated by the ‘real’ DJs, we started to buy records and got the opportunity to play at some big parties thrown by the radio station. The music we played was mostly rubbish; I don’t think I kept any more than 10 of the records I bought in that period – I sold all the bad stuff. I started to go to a small bar in Deinze called Clues where resident DJs were playing every Friday. After a couple of visits I started getting fascinated by their underground, non-mainstream music.

LEGENDS # 1: RON HARDY

Hey Ya´ll,

this is a first post of a legends series in our blog.
If i think of legends in House Music, Ron Hardy is the first name to call out. This dude necessarily is not the most influental pioneer out there, but undisputedly the most under appreciated.
He passed away, after tragic downfall in 1991, but he left us so much to live on..... Musicwise, click the link below, and you know what i mean.


Ya heard, ! The way he combined Soul, Disco and early House records is amazing, not to mention the music selection. He made his own edits and played some gigs with Reel to Reel tapes and he even played records backwords..


His life was a whirlwind, from rags to riches and backwards.
Yes, drugs were involved and yes he liked to have fun with various sexual groups. But the question is , why didin´t he get shouted out while he still lived, like the king of House he was.
Maybe he partied too hard or he just didn´t release any significant tracks like his counterparts? Or did He?


However, He didn´t keep a lot noise from himself, that we know. Otherwise this question remains to be answered. Least we can do is to cherish his legacy by enjoying life to through music like there´s no tomorrow.!!!

MCDE Delivered!!!!!


Yesterday, was a good day!
I addition to my free saturdaynight, we were lucky to witness Motor City Drum Ensemble aka Danilo Plessow to spin at Club-YK. Before we got into the venue i had chance to enjoy aweome dinner with the hyped producer and his supa chilled girlfriend.
It was all too good to be true, i thought! But it didn´t stop there.

At the venue our fellow House Party-member Tomi K did his warmup thing, finishing up the house practise with new remix of Osunlade´s Pride from Johnny D.


Allthough it propably wasn´t the best tune for MCDE to start his dancefloor exersize, after droppin´Moodymann´s - FOrevernevermore, i was SOLD, and the crowd felt the same way!


Shortly after, came Blake Baxter´s - Forbidden fruit which i haven´t heard in a while! Followed by # 2 from his Raw Cuts series.


Warmly welcomed surprise came at the halfway of the set when MCDE took us back to Metro Area´s golden era, with - Dance Reaction.


And

Candido´s classic Thousand Fingered Man.


Woaaahhh, the list of bangin tracks just kept going, but to feel it like i did, this blog propably can´t deliver, knowwhatimeaN;).
However,
House music is all about experiencing something through music and rhythm.
Best journey will be when shared, with the people of same ambition and passion for the music, rhythm and culture within.
So i am just happy that in this journey i had a good guide and awesome destination!
THANKS MCDE, House Party salute!

Joe Claussell, it´s been a while.


We can´t be more exited than this. The Body & Soul legend Joe Claussell is coming to recently opened YK-Club this saturday.
Some of us remember back in Kerma days when he was here surprisingly often.

BIO
Joe Claussell has long been one of New York City's busiest dance figures, thanks to his work in all areas of the house community: as a highly respected DJ, producer,remixer, label-head (Spiritual Life Music and Ibadan), and record-shop owner (Dance Tracks).

Spiritual Life has released tracks from a host of New York nu-house teams including Claussell himself, Mateo & Matos, Blaze, Slam Mode, and frequent production partner Jephte Guillaume.

And his Sunday clubnight Body & Soul (with fellow residents Francois Kevorkian and Danny Krivit) recreated the vibes fostered at the birth of modern dance music -- David Mancuso's Loft sessions during the early '70s -- with a varied mix of vibrant music ranging from Milton Nascimento to Masters at Work to Cesario Evora to Kevin Yost to Fela Kuti. In his productions, he's often mirrored that eclectic mix of styles, dropping in plenty of acoustic instruments and rich percussion patterns.
