….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!
