Schatrax - Champagne Dancer (2010 Edit)



Yet another deep house release in 2010. Soft chords, a bassline full of depth and groove, some claps...yawn. Lacking in originality? Not quite. "Champagne Dancer" is the originality, first released in 1998, and snapped up here by Fear of Flying and re-released with a limited edition vinyl-only edit from Schatrax himself and a remix from Justin Drake.

The original—containing little more than a kick drum, bass, some keys and that hypnotic synth is an unfussy, raw and delightful classic house track. Thankfully, the 2010 edit hasn't been played with too much and its timeless sound remains almost intact. Any 1998 creases have been ironed out and the groove has been calibrated for modern audiences. Other than a few tweaks, the A1 and A2 are very close. The trouble is—somewhere along the line—it's lost some of its gruff charm. The kick drum is less aggressive, the bass warmer and the piano smoother. What makes this edit stand out is the new looped and slow panning sound that's been run through a low frequency flanger effect. High pitched and relentlessly menacing against the backdrop of sexy bass and mature chords, it fits into 2010 like a glove.

Justin Drake's remix, spanning the entire B-side, has a techier feel. Drake has re-worked it into a rolling floor bouncer with spacious drums, chords and a short vocal snippet. Well-arranged and well-produced, I still can't help but feel that it's been designed purely as a club tool, giving "Champagne Dancer" yet another opportunity to be slung in the middle of a mix for the floor. That's all well and good, but it didn't need any help. It was already a gem in the midst of many a record bag.

Hamilton Bohannon - Let's Start The Dance



After graduating from Clark College, Atlanta and playing in local bands, he was hired by thirteen-year-old Stevie Wonder to be the drummer in his touring band. He moved to Detroit in 1967 and was employed by Motown as band leader and arranger for many of the label’s top acts. When Motown moved from Detroit in 1972, he stayed behind to form his own band. His band featured members of the Detroit band The Fabulous Counts.
He signed with Dakar/Brunswick Records and in early 1973 released the album Stop & Go. This was followed by five more albums for the label over the next two years, on which he perfected his formula of heavy, thudding bass accents and aggressive rhythms. Although several of his tracks were club hits, he had limited chart success – however, in 1975 "Disco Stomp" made the Top Ten in the UK, and "Foot Stompin’ Music" later that year scraped into the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B Top 40.

In 1976, Bohannon signed to Mercury Records and two years later had his biggest success with "Let’s Start The Dance." It made the R&B Top Ten and featured the singer Carolyn Crawford, whose subsequent albums Bohannon went on to produce.
Although he continued to release records through the 1980s using new vocalists Liz Lands and Altrinna Grayson, he met with diminishing success. Nevertheless, more recently his music has been widely sampled, most notably Chicago DJ/Producer Paul Johnson's 1999 hit "Get Get Down" which heavily sampled Bohannon's "Me and the Gang."

His name was mentioned in the Tom Tom Club song "Genius of Love."
Bohannon is a devout Christian and dedicated his album "Dance Your Ass Off" to "God and His Son, Jesus Christ". The album also included a disclaimer that "The word 'ass' is not used here in the sense of profanity."

DJ JUS ED: I'm Comin - Levon Vincent remix



A voyage into the world of DJ Jus-Ed reveals an adventurous, energetic and spiritual style of playing quality house music. Since reappearing on the scene in 2001 after a brief retirement, DJ Jus-Ed's underground smooth sets have captured & educated audiences all the way from his home base in Connecticut to Miami's South Beach, holding it down on two fronts with a weekly residency in New Haven, CT at Diesel Lounge and a bi-monthly residency at Halcyon "Underground Radio" in Brooklyn, NY. The "Underground Radio" show which was also featured on groovetech.com, started out as a fall slot and a year later has featured the likes of well-known producers/DJ's such as, DJ Romain, DJ Dimension & William Rosario (MegaMen Sounds) Lord G, Henry Maldonado, Kevin James (M-BreakRecordings) and DJ Afro (Los Amigos Invisibles).

DJ Jus-Ed 's exposure to a wide range of experiences shapes his unique musical viewpoint.

Other musical influences included James Brown , Buddy Rich and later Chicago, 3 Dog Night and Luther Vandross. In the early eighties faithfully tuning in to WBLS with Frankie Crocker, Jus-Ed also embarked on his professional dj career in 1982 starting out playing the music of the times, freestyle, house, and R&B but retiring in 1985.

Upon his return in 2001, Dj Jus-Ed teamed up with DJ Vic Money (98.7 Kiss FM ), to create the "Underground Quality " signature under which they began producing parties at venues such as, Ludlow Bar and Smithfields in the Lower East Side NY...

CJ Bolland - Camargue



Artist Info:

Born in Yorkshire in 1971 but transplanted to Belgium when he was only three, CJ Bolland received an early education in dance music; his parents ran a club in Antwerp, and his mother DJed there. He grew up listening to the synthesizer music of several eras — from Jean-Michel Jarre to Front 242 and the Neon Judgement — but began devoting most of his time to house and techno by the late '80s. Bolland began producing in 1988, when a drummer friend gave him access to the right gear, and his tracks were soon heard on several Belgian pirate radio stations. He then sent demos to several labels, and finally heard back from R & S Records.
CJ Bolland's first production for R & S, the Project's "Do That Dance", jump-started his career, and he soon saw releases from his projects Pulse, Space Opera (with the Advent's Cisco Ferreira), Cee-Jay, Ravesignal and Sonic Solution. His 1992 "Ravesignal 3 EP" (specifically, the track "Horsepower") made Bolland one of the hottest names in the new global dance community.

Bolland made his album debut soon after, with "The 4th Sign". His 1993-94 schedule also included production work for Mundo Muzique, Dave Angel and Joey Beltram as well as remixing for Orbital, The Prodigy, Sven Väth, WestBam, Tori Amos and Baby Ford, among others. His second album "Electronic Highway" was released in 1995, after which Bolland signed a mammoth five-album deal with Internal Records. The first fruits of the contract, "The Analogue Theatre", were released in late 1996 to critical praise and dance-chart success, thanks to the excitable single "Sugar Is Sweeter".

John Beltran - Blue World



Artist Info:

John Beltran, born 4 march 1969, is one of those producers that always seems to elude being pinned to any one category. His early work on Carl Craig's seminal Retroactive imprint sculpted a Detroit classic with hints of Derrick May, world music, and Jazz vibrations. He followed up in 1996 on Peacefrog with arguably one of the most sought after techno classics "Ten Days of Blue," which is still John's most successfully licensed music with songs like "Collage of Dreams" being used in the Miramax film Human Traffic and the HBO hit Six Feet Under. His next project was entitled "The Cry" under the Placid Angles guise which MixMaster Morris charted as one of his favourite albums ever.

Laid Back - Bakerman (Soul Clap Remix)



Before today there was yesterday and after tomorrow is the future. Elyte and Cnyce's paths were crossed for all time when a Sun Ra light beam sent from Saturn collided with the P-Funk Mothership and sent them tumbling to earth. Now, Soul Clap time travels on a musical spaceship of dopeness...

By harnessing the past Soul Clap looks to the future, with forward thinking productions, remixes and edits, creative DJ sets and some of the USA's best dance music events. With the city of Boston firmly in their grasp they organize the highly praised Dancing On The Charles and, and every Wednesday they host Midweek Techno, the area's longest running techno night.

Soul Clap's training goes beyond history lessons to mastering all the elements of the DJ and producer: knowledge, mixing, programming, performance and experience. They honed their knowledge by teaching a university course about dance music at Tufts University. Soul Clap themselves learned that "house wears many hats" and were instilled with the sounds of New York, Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia while fostering an addiction to crate-digging, that has become a worldwide quest to acquire the best music.

Soul Clap released their first 12" records on Airdrop Records, "The Giraffe", "die Ente" and “Puppy Crack” and then spread their wings with a number of edits and remixes on Brooklyn’s Wolf + Lamb. With more material coming soon on Culprit, AUX-Rec, Glass Table, Magic Bag, Rebirth and new Wolf + Lamb offshoot, Double Standard and a busy touring schedule already in place, the boys aren't slowing down in 2010.

Always pushing new boundaries, always traveling through time and space, decades of experience has prepared Soul Clap to free your mind, and your ass will follow.

Tiger & Woods - Come Down


Expect an orgy of edits on the secretive duo's mix for us.

What do we know about Tiger & Woods? Well, they've released three parts of an ongoing edits series that have surfaced through their own Editainment imprint. The squirming funk of "Gin Nation" has been marked as their standout track—one of the two cuts that made up last year's Caddy Shag EP. They made their DJing debut at Robert Johnson in Offenbach late October and followed it up with a number of European dates throughout the remainder of 2010. And now we have this mix. Adroitly snatched samples are the basis for the duo's trip through soul, disco, boogie and house music; if there's a more feel-good way of seeing in 2011 we'd like to hear it.

What have you been up to recently?

We started touring Europe, we just finished the album, we did a remix for someone from Germany, and mainly we'd love to say that we've been playing in the Ryder Cup, but unfortunately we can't really...

How and where was the mix recorded?

The mix was recorded somewhere in central Europe, but most of the music on it has been treated, sliced and dubbed on audiocassette in our lab which is somewhere else, way warmer than central Europe.

Can you tell us a little bit more about the idea behind the mix?

Most of the music on it comes from a kind of research we do in our studio, a sort of groove extraction that we need to regenerate those unknown and known classics. The idea of the mix is to blend those obsessive essential flavours with new and old tracks we love.

What's the motivation behind your cloak of anonymity?

It's so easy to get to know things nowadays; for once we tried to keep it spicy like it was back in the day.

Why edits?

We love it when you discover something new in a song you already know. If the edit is just meant to "fix the beat" or just extend it, then it's not our cup of tea.

What are you up to next?

There's a lot of music coming out from our side in 2011, and yes that includes an album (as you can read on Wikileaks). But mainly we'll be looking for a new scandal to "ride"—and this time it won't be based on the golf player, it will be just based on us

Info:

This is group's second long-player for venerated Cologne imprint Kompakt, following the gloomy electronica of 24/7 in 2009.

With initial recordings consisting solely of two Doepfer analog modular systems and August's vocals, the album nods to '90s dance pop acts like The Beloved.

Soulful House: Osunlade - Butterfly (Ron Trent's Music And Power Remix)



Ron Trent (born May 23, 1973, in Chicago) is an American house music producer.
Trent's father was a disco DJ. He recorded the track "Altered States" while still a high schooler, releasing it on Armando's Warehouse Records in 1990. The track became a club hit among devotees of techno, despite Trent's grounding in the Chicago house scene. He then began working with Detroit producers such as Chez Damier, with whom he issued several singles before co-founding the label Prescription Records. They also worked with Berlin-based producer Maurizio.
Later in the 1990s, he moved to Brooklyn and put together a collaboration known as Urban Sound Gallery, or USG. He also worked with Anthony Nicholson there. He returned to Chicago in the 2000s.

Afterward, he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he worked with artists such as Patti Labelle and Freddie Jackson. After a stint there, he moved to New York, where he founded Yoruba Records. To date he has worked with such artists as Roy Ayers, Nkemdi, Salif Keita, and Cesária Évora.
