Alex Metric & Oliver are amazing producers in their own right but when they come together it makes magic. “Galaxy” embodies everything that I love about Nu-Disco.
The elusive Detroit champion Moodymann has been churning out deep, sample-based soul music for late-night dance floors for 20 some years. This self titled LP, in my opinion, is his greatest achievement.
As a thank you gift for DJing a friends birthday she offered to host a dinner for me at her house. The only thing she wanted me to bring was music so I threw this mix together and we eat and laughed and generally had a great time. The name of the mix says it all!
File under experimental. “Jump Bugs” by Syclops is a dance floor burner in the hands of the right DJ. Perfect music for medium sized venues where you have the intensity of a proper sound system and the intimacy of the music being close.
Ed Sheeran & Passenger’s “No Diggity Thrift Shop (Kygo Remix)” gets a really well done remix from Kygo. This has a nice mellow fun vibe.
Toronto-based house wunderkind Kaytranada strips all the MJ-inspired elements away from Bruno Mars’ “Treasure,” and rebuilds it as a futuristic deep house jam.
In anticipation of tonight’s live performance at U Street Music Hall, here’s a guest mix from Classixx, recently recorded for Diplo’s BBC radio show, Diplo & Friends.
Sammy Bananas applied a saxophone-led, disco-house touch to Company Freak’s “Sexaholic” single.
Last week, London’s Gorgon City released “Ready for Your Love,” a phenomenal house jam in constant rotation on BBC Radio and in dance music clubs around the world. It is one monster of a tune!
Dimitri From Paris joins All Good Funk Alliance and The Sol Power All Stars tonight at U Street Music Hall
An absolutely amazing night of house music, from the afro- and Latin-flavored deep sounds of The Sol Power All Stars (complete with live percussion, as always), to the funky electronic-tinged house of All Good Funk Alliance, to the classic, deep, and soulful house that Dimitri From Paris calls his stock-in-trade. This is a do-not-miss night!
