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,...
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...
