FIVE FOR FRIDAY

Every Thursday we bring you a classic track from the musical vaults.
I’m gonna take you on a nostalgia trip back to the early 90′s, my early days of club land, an excitable young raver heading up to London town with my big sis & my fake ID to dance away the night in a sweaty basement. The music was the soundtrack to my adolescence, it was fresh and raw and I was falling in Love, an affair that would become an obsession, a necessity, an addiction, my career and my one true Love. That first taste of house music was sweet and I was hooked. I wanted to listen to house music all the time, but I didn’t know where to find it, apart from in the lazer caves and dirty raves; then a wannabe DJ gave me a mixtape, recorded onto a memorex DBS c90, it was see-through with neon pink, blue & yellow shapes and it was the coolest thing I’d ever owned. I played that Cassette backwards and forwards a billion times and it was my first inspiration to want to become a DJ. It was a mash-up of house, garage and New Jack Swing, but by far my favorite song, that I used to re-wind again and again, was MD X-Spress AKA Mike Dunn – God Made Me Phunky. The shuffle of garage beats, that simple yet addictive bass and synth loop and the cool as fuck vocals, this was the baddest thing I’d ever heard. Fast Forward 20 years and it still sounds fresh as ever. Big love for this classic jam.
God made me funky, and I’m glad he blessed me that way!
‘In the beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove’ Chuck Roberts spoken preaching vocal about house music that was famously sampled over MR Fingers aka Larry Heard – Can You Feel It in the 80s, is possibly the most Iconic house music accapella of all time, mix that with the intro of Frankie Knuckles ‘Your Love’ and you’ve got the ultimate homage to Chicago house. But not just a simple mash-up, Apres has laid the iconic vocal over a modern Future House track, with pulsating rhythms and emotive syncopated stabbing synth chords, underpinned with Frankie Knuckles’ finest loop. It’s an instant anthem and I’m hooked.
For the past few days, I had been having some trouble finding good techno to post. And there came Fraems to the rescue!
Fraems is the new project of Italian producer and visual artist F. D’Abbraccio – a founder member of the electronic act Aucan. Having supported the likes of Pearson Sound, Ame and Dead Heat, he is now ready to release his debut EP ‘Atlas’ on Lost Tribe, the Brighton based label of the production genius Ambassadeurs.
D’Abbraccio describes his music as being ‘immersed in deep atmospherics, deftly mixing analog synths and ethereal vocals with precise, mesmerising broken beat percussion.’ For me it is Moderat‘s eager underage brother who wants to go to the club. And that is a compliment.
Atlas is out on 16 March 2015 but until then you can grab a free download of the track Drones below. A small tip, I have been lucky to hear the EP in advance and it will be one of the best piece of music you will hear all year. So be in the know now.
Halifax based producers PINEO & LOEB have come together again to bring back the Men In Black. What’s not to love about this remix features not only Will Smith, but samples from Patrice Rushen’s Forget Me Nots? We’re swooning over the killer sax solo and live recorded guitar too.
We’re riding the summer wave with Mark Chill’s latest remix of Mr. Big’s To Be With You ft. Alexandra Govere. Mark spices up the original with a thumping kick and tropical percussion that has me bobbing my head from start to end. The new synth melodies give a new uplifting vibe to the song that’s true to Mark Chill’s production style. Now all we need is that warm weather to come! Free Download Here.

Emilie Deutsh, released on Germany based label Nu Disco Your Disco . The first track, Just Try is a journey through life and love; smooth R&B vocals blend with synths and a funky bass line resulting in quite the stunning production. Moon Lover is just as funky with a little more of an indie dance feel narrating a lover‘s passion for the moonlight. As if the two releases wasn’t enough, remixes from Mogul, Le Flex, and Bösser & Wohde are also included in the release.
