2019 Dec Let there be (Head Candi NYD 2020 Vision Party) house!

 

Wishing everyone a good year in 2020. I know I really need it!

 

Second part of House is a Journey & HeadCandi NYD party. The Dance Session

 

For clubbers and dancers alike, New Year’s Day Party, overlooking the Pacific Ocean

 

Starts with a 2019 remix of Madison Avenue dance classic “Don’t Call Me Baby”. Gives away the fact that this is not a challenging set. Meant to make you feel happy and dance.

 

Included a four-way Monster Mash, which I am not unhappy about.

 

The pre-millennials will recognize the HedKandi homage. When CDs were still a thing and labels could make money, compilations such as the HK ones were a must and introduce a whole generation to house in all its forms and iterations. We paid for them, discovered tunes and artists curated by the music directors of the labels.   A very different landscape to the A.I. spotified generated playlists which due to the algorithm merely selects a very narrow sample what you are "supposed" to like.

 

The “Let there be House” series is my attempt to resurrect the genre with current tunes. There will be about 9 to 10 episodes in the “Let there be House” series, hopefully each with its unique flavour. No particular order but for the fact that we will go up tempo throughout the uploads.

 

Ninth episode runs from 125 bpm to 130 bpm. Not challenging but for one ghetto house track, which is fun and short.

 

Playlist:

2019 Dec Let there be (Stereo Sushi NYE Pt.1) house!

 

Wishing everyone a good year in 2020. I know I need it!

 

First part of House is a Journey & HeadCandi NYE party. The Soulful session.

 

For real House freaks. I’ve included some recent cuts of house classics and veered off into some twisted souful and ghetto house. A couple of Ghetto house tracks might throw you out, indulge me.

 

Starts with a 2018 David Penn remix of Peter Heller’s anthemic Soulsearcher’s “Big Love”. 

 

The pre-millennials will recognize the HedKandi homage. When CDs were still a thing and labels could make money, compilations such as the HK ones were a must and introduce a whole generation to house in all its forms and iterations. We paid for them, discovered tunes and artists curated by the music directors of the labels.   A very different landscape to the A.I. spotified generated playlists which due to the algorithm merely selects a very narrow sample what you are "supposed" to like.

 

The “Let there be House” series is my attempt to resurrect the genre with current tunes. There will be about 9 to 10 episodes in the “Let there be House” series, hopefully each with its unique flavour. No particular order but for the fact that we will go up tempo throughout the uploads.

 

Eighth episode runs from 124 bpm to 125 but stays smooth.

 

Playlist:

 

2018 Big Love (David Penn Extended Remix). Pete Heller's Big Love, David Penn

2019 Move On (Vocal Mix). BKT, Xavier

2019 Gotta Keep Pushin’ (Grant Nelson Remix). Z Factor, Grant Nelson

2019 The Comeback (RC Slam Bass MIx). Roland Clark

2019 When House Was Young (Cubanix Remix). Roland Clark, Cubanix

2017 Funky Like That (Jask’s Old School Vibe Mix). Dave Mayer & DJ Roland Clark 

 

 

Highlights:

 

Big Love” because it is and has always been a foundation track.

 

You Change My World” from Marc Evans because it will be one of the last track I shared with my previous life.

 

The Comeback” and “When House Was Young”, because Roland is a House legend who started the whole PA movement.

 

A bientôt.

Back in the Club! This one is all about the beats, the rhythm and old House clubs feels and sounds. Twisted Disco? House infused with a twist of Disco and Tribal.

 

Starts with disco remix of the classic “Do you Remember House?” from Re-Tide.

 

The pre-millennials will recognize the HedKandi homage. When CDs were still a thing and labels could make money, compilations such as the HK ones were a must and introduce a whole generation to house in all its forms and iterations.

2019 Dec Let there be (beach boys) house!

 

The Hed Kandi album art from Jason Brooks, fab as it was, wasn’t very gay friendly, with scores of Hed Kandi babes but not even one for the boys. After scouring the web, I finally found a pastiche of HED Kandi with a beach babe/boy.

 

In a similar summer vibe than the first instalment of the HeadCandi series, beach tunes with a hint of tropical house. And a couple of tracks of a composed and sang by Marc Evans, a favourite of mine and the Barry White of this millennium.

 

Starts with a Steven Stone remix a great Italian tune “Un Amore di Favola”. All tracks except 2 released in 2019.

 

The pre-millennials will recognize the HedKandi homage. When CDs were still a thing and labels could make money, compilations such as the HK ones were a must and introduce a whole generation to house in all its forms and iterations. We paid for them, discovered tunes and artists curated by the music directors of the labels.   A very different landscape to the A.I. spotified generated playlists which due to the algorithm merely selects a very narrow sample what you are "supposed" to like.

Fifth episode runs from 122 bpm to 123, very easy listening.

 

Playlist:

 

2019 Un Amore da Favola (Original Mix). Steven Stone, Little D

2019 CYA (Original Mix). Somethin' Sanctified

Highlights:

 

Breathtakingly” Beach house perfection and to give a shout out to U-Ness & JedSet true house talent. Youness is a FB friend and he keeps me smiling with his posts. A god sent.

 

The two jams with Marc Evans “Are You Ready for Love?” & “Love Is (Coming My Way)”. Marc Evans the absolute best male vocalist in the soulful house genre and the ultimate songwriter. Respect!

2019 Dec Let there be (sexy) house!

 

Lock the doors, I'm ready to get off” true quote from Frankie Knuckles at the Power Plant in Chicago, where and when it all started!

 

Sexy Club Beats driven by a heavy bass and a hint of Funk for the later hours of the night. All tracks except 3 released in 2019.

 

Continuing the HedKandi homage with a fourth session of serious Funky Clubbers jams. For the later hours in the night when the house freaks get their groove.

 

Starts with Marshall Jefferson’s recall of the first House parties with Frankie Knuckles.

2015 My House (Greco NYC Remix). Low Steppa, Mr. V, Greco (NYC)

 

Highlights:

 

Love “Lock the Doors” for both the sexy under-beats and the historical recall. Furthermore, there is always a moment when the DJ “wants to get off”.

 

The beats of J Paul Getto “Make Me Feel” are as sexy as beats can be.

 

As for “Turn Up” with Mr. V, I have featured both Mr. V and this track a lot recently.. Whats can I say, love Mr. V and this is REAL HOUSE!

 

 

A bientôt.

2019 Dec Let there be (Serve Chilled) house!

 

Served Chilled. Pool house grooves with a hint of Soulful Disco. All tracks except two released in 2019.

 

Continuing the HedKandi homage with a third session of pool/summer vibe. Won’t sweep you of your feet. Yet, should you let the music play, you will find yourself with a smile, a boobin’ head and shoulders and feeling the summer beats engulf you.

 

Starts with new remix of Barry White’s anthem soulful jam

Should be the last Progressive House upload for 2019. Attempted to close the year with a good one. Sasha, Depeche Mode, Nora En Pure, CamelPhat, Howling and Rüfüs du Sol make up a great playlist. At the crossover between Indie/Alternative and House, which is the space were most of the great tunes are recently coming from.

Highlights:

 

Never Let Me Down Again” from Depeche Mode. They started it and are still relevant.

 

Stole the Night” from Howling. Haunting, driving tune with pure production courtesy of Oliver Koletzki. Perfect example of the crossover between Indie and Progressive house. Howling (a semi local Australian band) doesn't make your run of the mill music. They make music that is full of emotion, richness, melody and a unique pop sound. Howling is composed of Innervisions core artist and one half of Âme, Frank Wiedemann, and RY X of The Acid. As for Oliver Koletzki, he seems to pop up frequently on my radar. Born in Braunschweig, he is a German dance/house music producer and DJ. He is currently based in Berlin, Germany. “Artic Voices” further down in the set also shows his immense talent.

Homebound” from Nora En Pure (love what she does). Might have butchered it with my KOT dub. Still, great keys from Nora.

 

Out of Time” from Sasha… Because it is a great techno/progressive track and because Sasha is with Paul Oakenfold and Tiestö one of the 3 real superstar DJs.

 

Rüfüs du SOL “Another Life” and “Solace”. What a talented song writer coupled with an interesting voice! No wonder all the great remixers are working his tunes. Rüfüs Du Sol, styled as RÜFÜS DU SOL is an Australian alternative dance group from Sydney, that consists of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt. With Eli & Fur, Nora En Pure and Rae, my favourite “new” songwriter.

“No One Home” from Ana Criado. Ana Criado is a frequent vocalist on a ton of trance tracks. What I did not know is that she is also a great songwriter. BIG TRACK!

I should really credit the CamelPhat tunes and the the No Time for Hulk tech number. But running out of time.

 

Lots of good tracks in this uploads.

 

I have exhausted the backlog of Progressive and Trance. I feel like listening to lighter and happier tracks and reconnect with Soulful and Deep House. That’s where I will be for the next few uploads of 2019.

 

A bientôt.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.
