Kerri Chandler - Back To The Raw (Ruff Remix)

This is proper house music, by a long-standing top-notch producer.  It is as the title helpfully suggests, a way to get back to a more raw sound of house, and this would go down well in any underground house music floor.  Oh yeah.

Soul Clap - Let It Go

Got to love a bit of Soul Clap.  Not everyone's cup of tea as the music is sllllooooowwwww but I love it that way and this is groovy...and definitely for a dark corner to dance slowly to...delicious.

Bushwacka!, Just Be - Hold On, Wait A Minute

This is an underground bomb.  Nice gentle build up with some excellent drum craps which eventually gets quite intense and the drop - lovely!  If by lovely I mean devastating.

Good stuff Mr Bushwacka!

Out on Get Physical.

Clockwork & Avatism - Hail (Avatism Remix)

This slow house track is dark, moody and wants to steal your soul.  I suggest you allow it to.

PillowTalk - The Real Thing

I'm a big fan of Pillow Talk - I don't get to hear enough of their stuff as it is too slow to fit in most average DJ sets.

I didn't expect much from an edit of a soul record, as I know nothing about soul music (sorry, I was born in 1980, not 1950) but this was like wow, when it breaks down into the soul track it is such a good feeling, oh yeah :-)

I recommend giving it a whirl.

Nikola Gala - Only

I really like what Nikola Gala does, doing what his country Greece should have done many a year ago by keeping it simple, minimal, but upbeat with longevity.

Definitely one to watch for the future.  This is a really good tech-house track that keeps on giving.  I just really like his tracks - check out the previously mentioned Dope Beat too, that is amazing.

Blond:ish - Lonely Days (Hunter-Game Remix)

Really nice summery house, perfect for England.  Relaxed and slow but definitely a dancefloor groover.

Jimmy Edgar - This One's For The Children

Ah the return of robotic electro music that sounds good, sounds fresh and sounds modern - a big welcome back to electro!  None of that ra ra ra wub crap.

Tennis - Make It Good (Larry Heard Vocal Remix)

This is a really good underground house remix, and it is about time someone as revered and established as Larry Heard had a mention on my blog.

Actually, I spent the whole 8 minutes dreaming of spending time with those two girls.  Didn't even switch the speakers on.

George Morel - Lets Groove

Someone must have played this recently to remind me of it's 90's beauty, just when I was getting really desperate to go to nightclubs - kind of like garage but house at the same time.  Makes me want to start up a vinyl collection!
