What’s up y’all!! Lawd, I know I know – I didn’t submit a mix last month, (please don’t beat me! LOLOL), but listen – we’re making it up to you this month! As usual, 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 :  Dawn Souluvn Williams – Feel The Fire (The BPM Fire Mix) (#2 on the list). Listen – Dawn is NOT out here playing with y’all – she took NO prisoners with her amazing rendition of a Stephanie Mills classic! And with DJ Beloved (who is also making an extreeeeeeme amount of noise – did y’all cop the album?) on the remix, you can NOT miss with this! Go get it and stop playin now!

Another song/artist I’d like to shout out is Saliva Commandos ft. Kelly Diniz – Promesa (Oscar G 305 Drum Dub) (#6 in the mix)…man, look – Saliva Commandos has been consistently putting out bangers (put some respeck on his name, LOL!)…and this track with the lovely Kelly Diniz (The Network) is no exception! This originally came out a few months ago (check out the original – it’s siiiiick), and when Oscar G got a hold of it – woooow…Saliva Commandos is just one of those artists that you purchase and listen to later – because you KNOW it’ll be dope!

We got a bunch of other treats on here for you, too! We got complete MADNESS from Aj Lora, DJ Angelo, Loves Last Episode – and sooooo many more so give it a listen!

Enjoy the mix folks and if you like what you’re hearing and want to show your appreciation – feel free to donate a little something to the DJ (link below)!

Out Now!

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!

What’s up y’all!! Lawd, it’s July and it’s too damn hot! I am not a fan of heat at ALL. Imma just quote the legendary Boy George, “Summer is the enemy of fashion” LOLOLOL. Anyway, we want to sincerely give thanks and gratitude for allowing us to get in your ear one mo’ time! We appreciate the support and the love and we DON’T take it for granted! We got some HEAT for y’all this month, so let’s get right down to business, shall we?

Our featured song for this month is : Rimarkable – I’m In Trouble (Vocal Mix)  Lemme tell y’all a lil’ bit about this woman here – Rimarkable is not only a NASTY dj, having appeared in various high profile venues such as Funkbox NYC, the infamous Boiler Room, and her own internationally recognized “Everybody Random” party, but she is also an amazing writer/vocalist! Seriously, y’all got to go here to really get into what she gives – she has NO brakes! BUT…I digress – let’s get back to the track… “I’m In Trouble” is her debut on Detroit producer Wajeed‘s new Dirt Tech Reck label (if he sounds familiar, he designed album art for Slum Village as well as producing Dwele and working with Ceee-lo Green, Mayer Hawthorne, and John Legend). Rimarkable also bears the distinction of being his first signee to the new label, and if this track is any indicator of what’s in store, then y’all got my attention!

In all honesty I couldn’t just choose one song, tho – there’s another track on here that REALLY deserves a big up – and that’s DJ Applejac – Adinkra ft. Miles Bonny  Applejac has been putting out FIRE on the Shadeleaf label (founded and run by thatmanmonkz)! Ironically, I first met Applejac AT Rimarkable’s “Everybody Random” party a few years back where he was the guest DJ! “Adinkra feat. Miles Bonny” is pure excellence. Having spun “G.A. Tech” in last month’s mix, I already made up my mind I was gonna spin “Adinkra” this month! DJ’s – y’all want these tracks! I’m not asking you – I’m telling you!

 

We got a bunch of other treats on here for you, too. We got a cut from Louie Vega’s long anticipated “NYC Disco” album (omg, this is not only a well-produced and curated album, but it also serves as TEACHING material! Listen and LEARN IT!). We got some underground madness from yet another living House icon, David Morales, with his “The Red Zone Vol. 4” album. This month we featured “Kontrol, Pt. 1”, but honestly the whole album is just unfuckwithable. You remember those sick tracks that would cause you to show your entire ass in the club but you never knew what they were called? Yeah, Red Zone Vol. 4 is an album full of that shit, LOL. We got a HOT remix of Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” by Freeky & Shaunic, as well as some HEAT from Tedd Patterson off the Launch label!

…and last – but certainly not least – we got some new music from yours, truly – LibraClassic! off the Zodiac Thump Music label! This is a re-edit of “Tuff Yard” – a track that first appeared on “Lessons In Dub Vol. I“. We’ve taken it, chopped it up, transposed it and ended up with “Tuff Yard – The Rhumba Edits”. This track will be available exclusively on Traxsource on 7/3/18 (available to the rest of the world on 7/13/18), so be on the look out for it!

As usual – with songs that I consider “edits”, I also credit the original artist because – let’s be honest – if it wasn’t for them, you wouldn’t actually have a track, so – you know *shrugs*.

Enjoy! 🙂

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…

So here’s a Valentine’s Day gift for you to download and enjoy! Love done inna House style! This mix ain’t for sittin’ around and mopin’ (well at least not til the end, LOLOL)…Check it out!
