….aaaaaand we’re back! We apologize for not bringing you a mix last month – we truly appreciate you hanging in there with us! We had some drastic system configurations last month and now we’re ready for action! So let’s get down to business, shall we?

Our first feature track is “Praying For You (Album Mix)” from the looooooooooooooooong anticipated Jasper Street Co. album “Rejoicing“! Listen, if you’ve been out to the club in the last 4 months, you’ve been assaulted with this track only to rush home and not be able to find it ANYWHERE. Well, it’s finally here – and not a minute too soon, I was gettin’ ready to write Nervous a terse email demanding this track, LOLOL. No, I’m kidding, ut really – this track has been lighting up the clubs for months. If you like Soulful House done CORRECTLY, then look no further than this 11 track album! Featuring artists such as Kenny Bobien, Byron Stingily (that’s Principal Stingily to some of your kids, LOL), and Dawn Tallman, Teddy Douglas and DJ Spen show us why their pedigree is unimpeachable! But um, y’all think y’all slick tho – this album is cool n’ all that, but imma need them OTHER mixes of “Praying For You” – you know good n’ well what I’m talking about – Louie Vega been spinnin’ them shits for months @ Expansions – y’all holding out!!! Honestly, though look out for “You’re My Latest, My Greatest Inspiration” – a near PERFECT remake that will leave you in tears if it catches you on the right dancefloor and in the right mood. It is pure elevation. Oh! and “My Soul Is a Witness” – well, let’s just say if you enjoyed the “Track & Feel Events” EP that came out on Nervous a whopping 26 years ago (wow, right?), then you will LOOOOOVE this track! Trust me.

For our second feature – it’s not so much a track as it appears to be somewhat of a movement... seriously, can we talk about the sheer amount of work Kev Dot Kruz is putting in???? Always one to produce outside the box aesthetically, dude has been putting in WORK. He’s been quietly putting out a steady stream of Deep Tech, Afro Tech, Dark Tech, Techno, and other stuff you just have to hear – and he’s been releasing like 90% of it FREE on Soundcloud on his new “Afro Riddims” label!! Since those my folks, maybe I’m biased, but check it out for yourself! We try out his “Flower Underground” track (#16) in this mix.

Another dope producer, colleague, and all around awesome dude that really should be mentioned is none other than Harry Soto! Harry’s been making noise – and quite a bit of it, too! Another one not one to be constricted by genre, this time Harry brings us a deep techno vibe that will rattle your speakers! Check out “Techno Gods” (#17).

 

 

And we CERTAINLY can’t let y’all go without mentioning our closing track – “Work That Body”  – the debut track from the globetrotting DJ Q featuring none other than THE House diva herself – Barbara Tucker! Most of you in Italy, Spain, England, and many other spots across the world know DJ Q as Barbara Tucker’s touring DJ – and now you get to hear a DIFFERENT side of DJ Q. Ladies, gennelmen, and other identified – we have a PROBLEM!! Expect more from this up and coming producer, but until then, check out “Work That Body” (with Georgie Porgie on the co-production!) (#18) and get into what you hear!

 

 

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 Zo!, Dean Zepherin, Todd Terry, Joeski, Alex Peace – and much more!  As usual – free download, so enjoy!

What’s up y’all!! Lawd, it’s September and it’s Virgo season – basically a dress rehearsal for Libra season, LOL (jk) We want to extend our sincere gratitude for all the support for these mixes! The response has truly been amazing! We appreciate the support and the love and we DON’T take it for granted!  We want to continue our tradition of bringing you HEAT, so without further ado – let’s get this show on the road!

Our featured song for this month is :  Diephuis, Jephte Guillame, Barbara Gwanmesia – Baba M’fa Nijka (Baba M’fa Njika Vocal) (#12 on the list). First of all, I can’t even pronounce this but the sickness of this track is just unbelievable! If you listen to this at work, I swear to gawd you’re gonna need to excuse yourself for a minute when this comes in – it’s really that powerful! It’s a track befitting the aesthetic of the Shelter label – and of course, you put Diephuis and Jephte Guillame together – expect madness.

But make NO mistake – another song I’d like to shout out is Angel Negron, Harry Soto – Santo Africa (Santosoto Remix) (#11 in the mix)..listen, this comes in just before that “Baba” joint and this just screams “FLOORWORK” – because you will have no choice when you hear this Santosoto Mix!

 

We got a bunch of other treats on here for you, too. Dana Weaver has been putting in WORK. This isn’t her first time falling into this mix – and it won’t be the last! We got her singing about “Freedom” – and she’s teamed up with the amazing Doug Gomez, so you know what to expect! We got some new heat from Lilac Jeans (I think it’s about time to feature them – these dudes REALLY understand the spirit of House). Also featured in the mix is a new track from yours, truly – LibraClassic! called “A Lovely Noise”! Due to drop exclusively on Traxsource on September 28th (Worldwide on October 12th). Folks who are members of the Zodiac Thump DJ List will get promos tomorrow morning at 9:30am!

The Zodiac Thump! Season 2, Episode 3!

 

The Zodiac Thump, Episode 3

…what’s up, y’all! Spring is here and we’ve got our mid-month installment of The Zodiac Thump! This is Episode 3 of Season 2 and we’re hyped about the whole damn thing! Of course, all of our previous mixes in the Zodiac Thump series are still available to download or stream at your leisure! Check below for playlist (with links), and links to our various podcast locations! If you like what you’re hearing, you can download it free, but there’s also a TIP JAR down there because – well, because a few of you have actually asked and most importantly – why not? LOL – with all that being said, let’s get on with our mid-month blog…

Let me start off by stating – we’ve decided to start instituting a featured song in the Zodiac Thump DJ mixes and the reason is simple: the ARTISTS ARE IMPORTANT! Let me repeat that for the nosebleed section: THE ARTISTS ARE IMPORTANT! The time for spinning music in a contrived cult of secrecy is OVER! I have been caping for this for years (I have NEVER put up a mix without a playlist: EVER!), and I am glad that streaming sites such as MixCloud are enforcing this new policy. Last week, many DJs awoke to find that their MixCloud mixes would not play. I didn’t even bother to check mine because I already knew why they wouldn’t play – NO PLAYLIST. The artist typically suffers the most because of this -but not in MY mix – no ma’am! With that being said, our featured song for this mix is (drumroll, please)….

Brian Power feat. Kathy Kosins – “Can We Pretend” (Smooth Mix) – what can I say about Kathy Kosins? I mean, it’s like Phyllis Hyman and Teena Marie formed Voltron and out came this woman! Not only is her voice sublime, but the production quality is so amazing that you should have no trouble throwing this in your sets! Other notable tracks to listen for in this mix are MDW & Harry Soto bringing you “Power Of Prayer” – a deep, religious-themed track with an uplifting message on top of a KILLER beat and this nasty little battle joint from Lilac Jeans called “Don’t You Know” (which will dominate this summer, I PROMISE you!).

 

We also got some new stuff from Louie Vega, including a tribute to the legendary Voodoo Ray (a moment please…                                                                                                             …Thank You). We got some new stuff from the legendary Doug Lazy (he still got it!), some unreleased stuff from my bredren Kev Dot Kruz (I don’t even think y’all ready for what he finna hit y’all with…)…and as usual, if there’s some tracks in here that are more legitimately described as EDITS, I will rename them for their original artists and tag the “producer” as a remixer (I do this on my page, but will use credit as listed on MixCloud and similar sites). Don’t like it? Fight me.

Disclaimer: towards the end of this journey, I lapse into a throwback fit that I’m sure my veteran House heads will lose their entire shit over, LOL…
