No matter where your tastes in dance music lead you, you have to give it up for a work of painstaking musicianship, exquisite songwriting and genuine soul. Golden Lady is that type of album, and it doesn't hurt that...
5 Mag's Label Profile series is a new feature we're starting up this month, with curiously in-depth overviews of some of our favorite House Music labels. Recognizing that most labels (especially these days) are a labor of love of...
Update (28 Dec 2010 14:26:00) from Agency Sounds: Per Paul Johnson, permission must be obtained from Paul Johnson prior to hosting a benefit in his name or using his image. Please contact camille@agencysounds.com or robc@agencysounds.com in order to gain...
Hard to believe that it's been 12 years since Laurence Ritchie and Andy Riley formed Inland Knights (twitter, myspace, discogs) and unleashed their form of House Music mayhem on an unsuspecting world. After meeting up as DJs for the...
Alexander East is that rare renaissance man in this scene - spinning records, singing on them, a master of a half dozen different instruments (and probably more). Born in Brooklyn, he's done an amazing job in recent years representing...

Colette: On a High

The minute you hear the hook on Sonny Fodera's remix, you'll know too that "On a High" is gonna be a hit. Colette has never sounded better than she does on the second release from her Candy Talk label....
I've had my eye on these guys all year, and I've been impressed with the work they've put out so far. We've got five tracks to hit, so let's get right to the meat. Three versions of "Sing to Swing"...
Chicago Underground is a new regular feature in 5 Magazine, in which we feature interiews with Chicago producers and give away a free download of one of their tracks so you can check out their sound for yourself! This...
Nine years have elapsed since the Community LP was released on NRK, and in the ensuing decade, Mazi (aka Audio Soul Project) has constructed an atomic bomb. Hip Shake Heartache isn't just the best LP I've been sent this...
The Commencement was the debut release from Artefact Records. Though released in mid-summer, it didn't receive nearly enough attention from DJs or the record-buying public as it should have. This is a simple four track EP - nothing terribly complicated...
New York City's Ian Friday is a modern-day troubadour - a poet, DJ, producer and - as rare as it gets in this era of churn-and-burn dance music singles - a songwriter par excellence.
This is old school in distribution, not in sound. Dennis Ferrer seeded this in the hands of a select few for several months - almost since WMC 2010, it seems - and it's finally getting out to the public...
The first thing I noticed about this .dotbleep release (besides the bitchin' album art) is that it's long, and by long I mean you could take the first track, mix it in for a couple minutes, then mix an...
Aaron's music is universal, and in a sense belongs to the world now, but will always, always, always be rooted in Detroit
It's entirely satisfying when you listen to something and think you've discovered a fraud, and with the imbecilic hype of modern dance music there are certainly enough of those to go around. But it's humbling when you retrace your steps...
Spencer Kincy was at the top of his game in 1997 when he reached a peak of astonishing creativity, the likes of which had never and probably will never be seen again. In that year alone, Spencer released three...
Dimitri from Paris, dance music's foremost musicologist and the master of the compilation, returns with Get Down With the Philly Sound - a stunning collection and remix pack highlighting the sound of Philly International, Salsoul, Gamble & Huff and...
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,...
