Before listening to this, I wasn't sure if a package of remixes was warranted. "Hey Hey" is probably the biggest track to blow through House Music since the mid-1990s, with a staying power that's puzzled the jaded ("I coulda...
Take the most famous opening notes and the most seminal chorus in House Music history and add Frankie Knuckles, Eric Kupper, Todd Terry and Terry Hunter as remixers... For maybe the first time in my life, describing music with...
Some years ago, Demarkus Lewis made a shift from a deeper sound to a more tech-oriented blend of electronic boogie. Here he is turning again - not a U turn and certainly not backwards, but into something brand new,...
Newsflash! Ultra Naté isn't just the singer that has shaped House Music's sound with classic tracks like Free and the album Blue Notes in the Basement. She's also a promoter, impresario and one hell of a good DJ. Her...
It's a very fine line between "tribute" and "rip-off". The second song on this four track EP, "Stuff Like That", is a case in point. It's almost note-for-note, 100% derivative of Spencer Kincy's "Don't Stop" from the brilliant Tangled...
DJ Rush is a giant in dance music. He's now approaching his 20th anniversary as a producer - a recording career that began with "Knee Deep" on Trax Records back in 1991. Rush now lives in Germany but returns every...
James Curd (website, facebook, discogs, twitter) has made quite a name for himself this past decade. Also known as the mastermind behind the Greenskeepers band, James tells us about his near-death flying experience, why you might know of his...
A banana was just a banana when Josh Wink (website, facebook, twitter) came on the scene in the late 1980s: one could drop Acid, Detroit Tracks, German Techno and Chicago House and obsess less about musical genres than about...
It took about two decades for them to catch up, but the recent resurgence of mainstream interest in Hip House and Acid has brought a new respect to the early recordings of our man in Germany (tha produca awesome...
In February 2010, Nervous Records will be releasing Ananesworld, the new album from vocalist Anané (website, facebook, myspace, twitter, podomatic) and produced by her husband, Grammy Award winner Louie Vega. Effortlessly shifting from Deep House and Dance to Reggae,...
Electronic music, as we've lamented time and time again in these pages, is nowhere on the radio spectrum in Chicago. Outside of a record here and there, it hasn't been for years. And while we're stating the obvious, let's...
From Switzerland, Jamie Lewis has been rocking the tables and carrying the flag for House Music for more than 20 years.
(This article about Spencer Kincy was originally published at the now-defunct housemusicdaily site. Since a few other things I've written reference this, I thought it sensible to reproduce it here. I wrote something else about Spencer Kincy a couple...
Between the time that I write this and the time you read this, more than a hundred mix compilations will be released. I don't know anyone who buys them, and despite being I champion of this music, I can't...
Fat fucking beats pounding, a serpentine groove and everything but the afros for the first release by Chicago crew The Chosen Few. To complicate matters for future discologists, the sample chorus on this one is actually by another "Chosen...
Richard Earnshaw is the founder of Duffnote Recordings and renowned as one of the top producers and remixers on the planet. Listen to Richard Earnshaw: 5 Magazine's New Mix Monday (2009) by5 Magazine on hearthis.at Starting off as a classically trained...
Dave Miller puts together four slabs of heavy Deep House here, built largely around the strong vocal of Kelly Hayden. "Take What You Want" is a fierce tune - catchy, soulful, danceable - basically everything you'd want from a...
Let's go back now, to the period after Disco was purged from the airwaves but before House Music was born. Musicologists have dubbed this urban musical outpost "Boogie Music", dominated by the Funk and Soul artists of the era...
Ten tracks and almost a who's who (no pun intended) of Chicago producers making waves these days, each of them taking a turn beating down a track from Bear Who's 2008 album The Beatbox. Paul Johnson's remix of "It's...
Incredible. DJ Boxx is a name well known to locals but he may as well hire a booking agent now - after this track finishes making its way around the world, he's going to need one. Carla Prather delivers...
