….heeeey, y’all! Hope you’re having an amazing summer so far – as we go into the last part of summer, we continue to bring you the heat every month! So let’s get down to business, shall we?

Our first feature track is “Tasha LaRae & DJ Spen – Wish I Didn’t Miss You”  with none other than DJ Beloved on the remix! Listen, the airwaves are littered with remakes – some are good, some…well, some could use some work, but THIS?? This remake right here? THIS does the original such justice that it was hard to decide which mix I wanted to play! You know how Quantize brings it – stellar production, insane vocals, and they only pick the BEST for their remixes. The original mixes are dope and very true to the original song, but for my latest mix – I chose Beloved’s remix because it is soulful – yet goes HARD on the floor (track #2)

As the mix goes on, it transitions from soulful to tech and for our second feature – I’d like to present to you the closing track “Oliver Dollar, Nils Ohmann – John’s Church (Cassius XXL Remix)... ok, this is one of those joints where had it not been for the remix, this track would have probably passed under my radar. Awesome work to Oliver and Nils and great job to legendary duo Cassius (RIP Phillippe Zdar)…

 

 

 

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 Jasper Street Co., Oscar P., Louie Vega, The Deepshakerz, Cardi B, Tribalizer – 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!

….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!

….aaaaaand we’re back! Last month we brought you Spring Warfare and this month we bring you Spring Warfare Part TWO! And we got some treats for you! Let’s get started with our feature tracks, shall we?

Weaving Genres Vol. Two: Unreleased Versions

Our first feature track – well, it’s not so much a featured “track” as it is a couple of tracks from a featured compilation! This month we spotlight Hector Romero’s “Weaving Genres Vol. 2: Unreleased Versions“! This 18 track compilation features artists such as Paso Doble DJ Vivona, Satoshi Tomie, Quentin Harris – and many other notable contributions from industry vets like David Morales to up and coming industry blazers such as Mikki Afflick and Ritmo Y Tumbao! Speaking of which – the first selection we decided to snatch off this amazing compilation is none other than “Thunder Drum Dance feat. Ritmo Y Tumbao” by Mikki Afflick with a deep, rolling bassline reminiscent of Ecstasy’s “Don’t Play Me Raw” or Hercules “7 Ways” followed by “Dejalo Que Salga” by Peppe Citarella & Mijangos. Honestly, you could set fire to the dancefloor just spinning from this compilation alone! Look for more selections from this compilation in future mixes!

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 genius of Chicago Afrobeat Project????? Some music touches your gut, some beats reach your feet…Chicago Afrobeat Project manages to reach down and touch the pulse of the ancestors. Indigenous, yet up to date and innovative, the “Future Rootz” album is another one that can be played head to toe. With Sol Power All Stars on the Remix, “Cut The Infection” delivers, punching through the crowd as a beat to request. I would STRONGLY suggest copping this!

 

 

This mix – like pretty much all of my mixes – tends to do exactly what Hector referenced in the title of his compilation – and that is to weave genres. This mix features everything from Soulful to Afro to Tech to Techno – it’s pretty much all in there. We got tracks from Sevader, Juanito, BLAQWELL, Todd Terry, Diezel, we got a couple joints off the Quantize Miami Sampler Compiled & Mixed by DJ Spen on here (#1, #11) – and much more!  As usual – free download, so enjoy!

Hey, everybody! We apologize for the brief hiatus, but we are BACK – and guess what? We brought WEAPONS. 

Our feature track for this mix is none other than Ralf Gum f. Monique Bingham – “Claudette (Album Version)” – a tribute to Claudette Colvin, a nurse and pioneer of the Civil Rights movement. Colvin is widely known for refusing to give up her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus nearly a year before her more popular contemporary and face of the movement, Rosa Parks. Black leaders refused to acknowledge her pioneering act of defiance due to her being an unwed expectant mother (reportedly by a married man) at the time of her arrest at age 15.

In Philip Hoose’s book, “Claudette Colvin: Twice Towards Justice“, Colvin said, “My mother told me to be quiet about what I did. She told me to let Rosa be the one: white people aren’t going to bother Rosa, they like her

Claudette Colvin

Colvin suffered in so many ways from both white people and the people that were supposed to be there for her (you know – Black  people), that it brings tears to your eyes just reading her story. I’ve always thought highly of Monique Bingham, but now I have a new found “awe” of her depth. Thank you, Monique – for acknowledging this amazing womanLove this whole album!

 

 

Another track I wanted to talk about is “Wele” by Brad Machado. Seriously, this is not even about just the track – it’s about ALL of the material coming from the Arawakan label. This is an example of TIMELESS music – this came out last year, but DEMANDED to be in the mix – even among all the new material from Arawakan that I have to sift through. THAT’S how you build legacy. Big shout to the beautiful husband and wife team – Vic and Nena Hernandez – when you hear these names, you are hearing Arawakan! In addition to that dope Ralf Gum track, this month we also bring you music from Hondo Vega, Doug Gomez, DeMajor, Ray MD, and many more! A little soulful, a little afro, a little classic house, a little techno…it’s all in there! As usual – free download, so enjoy!

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!

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…
