….sooooooo, I took January off to discombobulate and really get ready for the new year! Got a few things planned and the pace is already hectic, but I’m not complaining! Without any further ado, we’re just gonna get into what’s in this mix:

 

Our first feature track is “Thommy Davis & Randy Roberts – Try Jah Love”   – a remake of an 80’s club classic by iconic Reggae group,  Third World!   I remember this being played religiously in the hood and with Thommy Davis and DJ Spen on the mix and Randy Roberts on the vocals, this track DELIVERS. Not only that – we’ve also got Gary Hudgins on keys and bass and Lloyd “Skip” Dorsey on guitars, so you need to check this one out! I used the original mix but you also need to check out the Mr. Showtyme Afrocentric Remix (this also delivers)!

 

The next track we’d like to talk about is “Louie Vega ft. Janine Sugah Lyrics Lyons – A Place Where We Can All Be Free” off the “Expansions In The NYC” preview EP. Now if you’ve ever been fortunate enough to attend Louie Vega’s Expansions, NYC party (formerly located a block from the old Limelight), then you KNOW how unbelievable the atmosphere is! People talk about Paradise Garage, The Loft, Gallery, and other infamous clubs – and we know that these weren’t simply “clubs” – they were movements, they were moments in time….and admission to these movements – these places in time – was a massive privilege and Expansions, NYC is NO different. Louie Vega makes each and every person in there feel like he created the party for THEM and them alone. You will see folks like Toni Colandreo, Janine Lyons, and Axel Tosca mingling one minute and then – at 3 in morning – having an improptu jam session with Louie spinning – it’s unreal! Expansions is a “you have to be there” movement. New memories are being created here and though we are still waiting for a permanent home for Expansions, the movement is still very much alive! Stay tooned for the arrival of the Expansions album!

 

While we’re talking about awesome remakes, can we talk about “Nicholas Ryan Gant & Karizma – Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless) (Kaytronik Remix Extended Version)”?? I’ve been a Nicholas Ryan Gant fan since hearing his work with Zo! (of Grammy nominated group, The Foreign Exchange) – but there’s muuuuuuuuch more to this “ghetto falsetto” (check out his unbelievable catalog on Spotify!). This is a remake of the track that kicked of House leged, Crystal Water’s career back in…um…I wanna say 91′? Anyway – the way he interpreted this on the original version produced by DJ Applejac is nothing less than phenomenal, but who let Karizma and Kaytronik get their hands on it??? OMG – there are tracks you play to get people on the floor – THIS is what you play to keep them there! If you haven’t copped this yet, you bullshittin’ (ijs).

Other tracks definitely worth mentioning are “Lexa Hill – Ninos (Vocal Mix)”, “Toshi, David Morales, Timmy Regisford – Nini Part 1 (Diridim Mix)”, “Mr. V, Walter Scalzone, Tony P. – The Rhythm”, and “ZTSky, Mr. Kan3 – Salsa (Original Mix)”…these will follow me into rotation for some time so go to the links in the list and cop these!

….heeeey, y’all! So the summer is OVER (thank GOD), and we kick the Fall off right with the Libra season! It looks like Libras are winning HARD this season and I am SO psyched to be in that number! So let’s get down to business, shall we?

Our first feature track is “Dominique Fils-Aime – Good Feeling (Atjazz & D-Malice Vocal Dub)”  with none other than the legendary Atjazz on the remix along with D-Malice on the remix! Listen, I know everybody’s caught up in this “Good Feeling” remix – it’s an awesome segue track or even an amazing starter, but let’s not ignore the rest of the remix ep!  Atjazz shows off again on the “Sun Rise” remix and the legendary Fred Everything throws his hat in the ring with his remix of “Free Dom”. You will hear the rest of this EP featured heavily on future mixes!

Typically – as the mix goes on – I like to transition from Soulful and Deep to Tech and Techno to really pay homage to the depth of the House field and to ramp up the energy, but this time the mix was a little short so I didn’t get a chance to go in like I normally would have (I’ll make it up, I promise!) , So without further ado, allow me to introduce the second standout track for this month Oliver Knight – Crying Out (Praying Woman)“.  It looks this will be another one of those “insert female gospel singer here and hope for the best” tracks which are generally hit or miss, depending on the production. This is one of those hits…but just barely! As Tech House goes – minus the sample – this track is that remarkable.. This is one of those productions where the sample literally makes and saves the track from being labeled “filler”. Not to mention the fact that awesome mixing, mastering, and conservative use of the sample contributed heavily to this track’s success (the ICONIC Kenny Carpenter played this to a very receptive crowd at LeBain just last night!). All in all – awesome tracks and  pretty much staples in my arsenal!

We’d also like to give a nod to “Lea, Muzikman Edition, Tweety – Songbird (Oscar P Afro Rework)” (#8, @ 35:00). If you’re looking for well done, well thought out Afro House you might want to check this out. A heavy yet subdued beat with deeply soulful vocals sitting perfectly in the mix. This is another one (like the Dominique Fils-Aime track we mentioned earlier) that’s perfect for breaking up a set without losing the crowd!

 

As usual, The Zodiac Thump is all about music. PERIOD. These mixes feature everything from Soulful to Afro to Tech to Techno – it’s pretty much all in there.  In this mix, we’ve got tracks from DJ Kemit & The Lounge Lizards, Josh Wink featuring Ursula Rucker with Louie Vega contributing his part to an awesome remix package, Coflo, Thommy Davis, Dany Cohiba, Norty Cotto – and much more!  We don’t care about release dates – whether it’s brand new or came out last year – if it’s hot, it’s hot! As usual – free download, so enjoy!
