Good morning, good afternoon, and in case I don’t see you later, good evening! Let’s kick off this beautiful Monday with some explosive new soundcloud uploads by Defected Records.
Let’s start with mini-mixtape by Flashmob. Yes, yes, yes! HOUSE MUSIC!
Noir In The House Podcast…need I say more?
Rampa Is In The House!!!! This mix is on point!
Hallelujah! Sunday Shoutin, house style!
This track has got strong instrumentation, horns, and a vibrant world vibe.
Great original track x remixes!
There is nothing I love more than some deep house goodness! I eat, drink, and sleep house, but I especially thrive off the pulsating sounds of that deep bass and soulful vocals. There are so many different styles of house, and when it comes to deep house you can make it deep or you can make it abysmal. Not everyone knows how to make it deep, but producer A Lister from Bradford, Britain knows how to get down to business and make it real deep x soulful.
At only 23 years old, A Lister has pumped out some great deep garage house tracks. Just by simply browsing his soundcloud you’ll find a lot of good stuff, but his best track is “Baby” and it’s off his latest Luvbug Recordings EP called, The Blueprint.
If you’re wondering how I found out about the music of A Lister, well let me tell you that it’s all thanks to Defected Records (my favorite label.) Defected just released the NYE Pre-Party Mix which has some of the best tracks of the year, and within the compilation mixed by Lynda Phoenix, she included A Lister’s hit deep single, “Baby.”
Peep out “Baby” and other tracks from The Blueprint EP below.
Yes, it is finally here! Well, it came out earlier in October, but hey it’s still relavent! Defected Presents The Closing Party: Ibiza 2012 can now be yours via iTunes digital download, and for US customers it comes at the cost of just $6.99 to download. If you’re a fan of the Defected “The Closing Party” series, then you’ll want to at least check this one out.
The compilation features some of the top house tracks played this year in Ibiza, and in to celebrate the release of the album, Defected has produced a finale video showcasing some of the 2012 House Music Odyssey. So not only do you get to watch snippets of the partying in Ibiza and listen to good music, but you also get to hear commentary from Simon Dunmore, Seth Troxler, Fatboy Slim, Reboot, Pirupa and Copyright.
I still have yet to actually go abroad, but I’ll admit that Ibiza (and of course New Zealand) is the first place I want to visit. I’d love to party it up in Ibiza listening to the best house in the world, and then relax on the beach. Beach + house = awesomeness!
Have any of you gone to Ibiza? Is it really as awesome as the DJs and house junkies say it is? Hmmm, I sure do hope so! I’ve met a few DJs online who have played in Ibiza, but I didn’t want to seem starstruck and ask a million questions. So the best research will be me planning a trip to Ibiza. Sounds good. Wanna go?
Ever wish you could just hop in a time- machine and go back to the days of 90s club music? Well, I do. I secretly wish I could just take a few weeks and go back to the 90s as an adult and enjoy the club hits from that era, as well as the 80s.
Well, apparently I’m not the only one that feels that way. Tensnake decided to team up with Syron and immerse themselves in a hint of nostalgia by pumping up a new retro house single called “Mainline.” I heard the track (which will be officially released on Defected Records) a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve been anxious for a video to be release.
Well, the wait is over! The official video is here and it’s super retro; from the clothing to the graphics, everything is reminiscent of a 90s club classic music video.
Here is the live performance of the track in Ibiza. I saw this a few weeks ago and since then I”ve been awaiting the release of the official music video. I love Tensnake! I love Defected Records! I love Retro House!
Before heading off to the gym (Planet Fitness,) I figured I’d share with y’all some of the music I’ve been listening to. I typically start my day off by listening to a variety of house tracks or a nice SS Radio UK podcast, but today I decided to peruse some music blogs and listen to some new releases.
One of those new releases that caught my attention was a track by Storm Queen called “Let’s Make Mistakes.” You may or may not know who Storm Queen is, but maybe the tracks “Look Right Through Me” and “It Goes On” might ring a bell. Sound familiar? Well if not, no worries…I’ll post them below.
I first fell in love with Storm Queen when I heard ”Look Right Through Me,” so I had an idea of what to expect on “Let’s Make Mistakes.” Storm Queen is known for having this deep gritty house sound propelled by a thumping bass and powerfully deep vocals, and the latest release is a track that captures that Storm Queen essence.
I’m really loving this track, especially the vocals by Damon C. Scott. It’s still soulful, but has that deep quality that I truly love. Man, you’ve gotta peep the track below, as well as the other aforementioned tracks. If you like what you’re hearing, then head over to Environ Records and buy Storm Queen’s newest release, “Let’s Make Mistakes.”
I’ve been a huge fan of Defected Records for years, and I especially love Defected In The House. I always some great house tracks that get my going, especially when I need to feel pumped up for a workout.
When listening to Defected, you always get this beautiful combination of house. It’s not just strictly soulful or strictly deep, but it’s a unique collection of a variety of sounds that are driven by house.
Can’t recall the last time I actually bought a Defected In The House compilation, but I do listen to the podcasts on a weekly basis.
The latest podcas, a guest mix by Sandy Rivera, really caught my attention. It’s good such a nice vibe to it and if you want to jam to it while working out, you totally can.
