Atnarko: Violent Sky (Dance:Revolt)

It's pretty crass to say that what makes a track stand out from the pack is that it's about something, but it's true, and so is the implication that most have nothing to say....

The Legendary 1979 Orchestra: Conqueror

As a veteran DJ, I realize that not ALL music is made for the dance floor, nor are ALL of my readers club patrons or DJs themselves. And as a musician/producer, I occasionally like...

HM Presents Hold Tight

You might not recognize the name "HM" right away, but it's the latest moniker being used by none other than Harold Matthews - better known in Chicago House lore as "Big Ed."

Todd Sines: Envelop

"Everything that needs to be said has already been said," André Gide once said. "But since no one was listening, everything must be said again." Maybe this time they'll get it right. This weekend, while...

On its second release, Detroit's Fort Street Records appears to be in very safe hands with this three tracker from local Deep House champion Rick Wade.

Dimitri from Paris presents Nightdubbin’

Alexander East: Supposed 2 Be (3345 Music)

Superb producer and vocalist Alexander East sent us his latest project on 3345 Music with three remixers for your pleasure. The original cut is a definite floor-warmer, heavy on the synths with a smooth...

JT Donaldson’s 88 Days EP for Nu Jax

There was a time not that long ago that JT Donaldson was a staple on the "circuit" - an informal group of about two dozen or so DJs that seemed to play every city...

The Sun God: Root Frequencies Project (Machining Dreams)

"Root Frequencies" opens with a filtered and processed sound that sounds like a phone ringing when you place the call - a signal of the call being placed, for the rhythms being summoned by...

Rick and Kenny’s Early Adventures: Classics Vol 4

I wrote a few months back that Moods & Grooves had probably the best undiscovered back catalog of any record label in the Midwest. On hand as Exhibit A is the fourth in a...

Two Deep House gems from Birmingham native Steve "Griffo" Griffiths under the Second City Firsts alias.

Jeremy Underground Mixes My Love Is Underground II

One's flagging interest in conventional compilations creeps down to zero in light of some outstanding collections curated by Joey Negro and Jeremy Underground. My Love Is Underground II nicks its name from Jeremy's top...

DJ Sneak: Dry Rub

DJ Sneak's sound is pretty timeless by now; if you like his past releases, you'll probably get into this one as well. "Marijuana" is classic Sneak, with a heavier than heavy bass, clean drums...

Destination Unknown: Till Von Sein & Tigerskin’s Arkansas City

Out of all of the songs named after great cities, this is probably the first dance music anthem dedicated to Arkansas City, pop 12,305. The new record and title track from Till Von Sein...

DJ Motion: “Extranatural Notions”

This three song release by DJ Motion features a pretty wide range of sounds. "Born in Summer" is a classic jack track - perfect for the lull between two crowd slayers, it's simple, direct...

Kai Alce, Larry Heard, Rico and Kafele Take A Chance

No question about it, this is one of the finest tracks released this summer and in 2015 as a whole. A song of restlessness and deep longing, Kai Alce's "Take A Chance" (which debuted...

Every record from these guys feels like a real "secret" - a present shared from two neighbors that moved away to California to become hippies and the fam they left back home. It's not...

Garrett David: The Time (Courtesy of Balance)

Garrett David's The Time is his best new track since The Queen Tracks and one of the best records released all year.

Dennis Ferrer: Hey Hey (The Remixes)
