Throwback: TJR ft. Xavier – Just Gets Better (Vocal Dub)

When trying to think of uplifting party garage tunes, it’s hard to think of with many better then TJR and Xavier’s brilliant ‘Just Gets Better’ release. Appearing in 1997, ‘Just Gets Better’ showcases the more playful and care-free side to garage in contrast to Ordinary People‘s ‘Baby, You Make My Heart Sing’ released in the same year. […]

Throwback: Ordinary People – Baby You Make My Heart Sing

Here we have an underground garage classic – Ordinary People ‘Baby You Make My Heart Sing’. Personally, I am a sucker for garage; though of course there are great songs in all genres, there is just something really infectious about it. Whether it be its distinctive shuffling percussion patterns, soulful choppy vocals or bassline grooves, […]

Nextup: Friend Within – The Renegade (Special Request remix) (Free Download)

Paul Woolford’s side project, Special Request takes up remixing duties for Friend Within’s anthem ‘The Renegade’, mashing up Wildchild’s ‘Renegade Master’ and turning it into a fast moving, jungle beating anthem.

Throwback Song: Wildchild – Renegade Master (Fatboy Slim Old Skool Mix)

Throwback: Made in USA – Never Gonna Let You Go (Theo Parrish Re-Edit)

Since seeing Theo Parrish last weekend, I have become a little obsessed. His set at Beacons Festival blew me away and since then I’ve been looking into Theo’s work.  He was born in Detroit but his music is not simply the classic techno that the city is famous for. He brings in all sorts of […]

Throwback: Christian Loeffler – Undefined Season

I was very fortunate to stumble across Christian Loeffler via a Hackman podcast. It’s beautiful yet eerie nature struck me immediately and to this day it remains one of my favourite chilled deep house songs. Loeffler’s style evokes a complicated dichotomy of feelings: I find myself experiencing strong feelings of melancholy but also at the […]

Nextup: Factory Floor – Turn It Up (free download)

Accapella, dance vibes in the new tune from Factory Floor, offered as a teaser to whet our appetites before the release of their long-awaited debut album in September. Featuring a disjointed beat that sticks in the head like a niggling memory, infecting the feet with the urge to tap along, this song makes the wait for […]
