When it comes to the annual charts of 2013 one of the albums that seem to be a little underrated is Pantha du Prince & The Bell Laboratory‘s ‘Elements of Lights’. I see that it got released a while back and bells are assumably not among the most beloved instruments of listeners of Dance music after all.
Not that I really care about those kinda things but…’Elements of Lights’ truly is a masterpiece. Every single song on this album is just great. In this zip you’ll find the probably most recognized one (‘Particle’) alongside Ozo‘s Disco monster ‘Anambra’ and ‘The Revenge of the Giant Cowbell’ from Efdemin‘s fantastic album ‘Chicago’.
Happy new year!
Fantastic video. Great song.
I love this man! In this zip you’ll find a little (Un)Mix of the album ‘Viking Sixth Avenue’ on Honest Jon’s that I made a while back along with 3 other songs that are not on the mix: ‘Sparrow’, ‘Nero’s Expedition’ and a pitched down version of the ‘Bird’s Lament’.
Hope you dig!

Another month has passed by so quickly, it’s time for presents: so here comes another Salseoul Compilation… Continue Reading
I love this song by the Australian singer and writer Sam Green! Sound quality is shite which makes it even more beautiful and charming if you ask me. On his soundcloud page you will find a few other downloadable songs and also a link to his website where you can watch videos and order albums, T-Shirts and Poetry.
I found ‘For the Ocean’ on the mind-blowing Aussie-Kiwi-only-mixtape ‘Southern Shores’ by Instant Peterson and Andras Fox. It was made for one of my favorite blogs The Growing Bean and contains many sweet and hard to find gems.
‘Hey, can you come out and play’ by Megan Sue Hicks is another one that I unfortunately wasn’t able to find any audio or video files of on the web. If anyone out there has a copy and is willing to share PLEASE get in touch.
I love Chicago House and it’s early history is discovered quite enough. Some compilations became classics and (even though all tracks are well known) are highly sought after themselves until today.
The new, lovely-titled sampler ‘Kill Yourself Dancing’ (compiled by Jerome Derradji for Still Music) queues up with them. But alongside productions of underground hit machines like Ralphi Rosari, Master Plan or Matt Warren you’ll also find rather unknown tracks that are not provided everywhere else. I like almost every single one of them and I strongly recommend to buy the album.
Two highlights are the large dub of Master Plan’s ‘Electric Baile’ and ‘Jail Bait’ by Ben Mays. This 10-minute b-side of ‘Lover Man’ matches perfectly no matter if you’re playing a warm up for a Deep House set, try to gather people on the floor, want to go deeper and get closer to your crowd in a packed club or just need a toilet break – it will surely work. You then could go on in many different directions. Or simply dance your ass off at home….
Great release by the House sensation OB Ignitt on Detroit’s finest FXHE label by Omar S. All three tracks on this EP are killer. Expect many references to dance classics that nonetheless sound fresh as fresh can be.
No audio files yet cause it just got released and can be purchased everywhere.
But watch out for the upcoming SalSoul samplers…. 😉
