Hey house music lovers, geeks, travelers, and awesome people, how’s it going?! Sorry I haven’t been blogging much, I’ve been crazy busy at work (Travel Channel).
My job as a designer/video editor can be pretty hectic and a lot of fun, but I’m still always going to love blogging about house music and my adventures (including my upcoming Caribbean vacation.) But before we get to all that fun stuff, I’ve got so much good music I’ve been dying to share with you.
Let’s kick the night off with some wicked grooves from The Magician.
Full of absolute bangers, The Magician’s “Magic Tape 51” is a wicked ride into the sounds of house and dance music. So let’s not delay this ride any further, and jump right in:

If you’re in need of a lunchtime pick me up or perhaps a dance party at your desk, then groove to these solid disco vibes from Aeroplane.
Titled “Tough Disco,” this mix is a heavy selection of wicked disco edits from Roisin Murphy, Rex the Dog, Soul Clap, and so many other great artists.
Give it a spin:
In the latest roundup of True Romance Mixtape series, Tensnake reminds us why we love him so much.
With an incredible talent, he crafts a journey that powers up with disco funk and winds down with dark house vibes. The seasoned producer knows how to give us what we want; good music that makes us want to dance.
I keep telling myself I’m going to see him live at U Street Music Hall, but I always seem to miss his set! But he’s in DC this weekend, so I just might have to step out for the night. Sort of a pre-game event to Saturday night’s house event, Deep Sugar at the Paradox.

Unable to escape this dreaded winter, I’m really looking forward to getting away for a weekend in May. But that’s still two months away, so for now I’m stuck in the house…wishing Spring would roll in.
In an effort to lift my spirits, I decided to peruse my inbox for some good vibes. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this email from Just Kiddin, and my mood is immediately lifted as I listen to their new free EP, Getaway.
My initial impression? WOW! The title track “Getaway” is a massive track full of sunshine vibes, and it’s certainly a dancefloor killer! Not only is the song an uplifting track, but it’s perfect for all us dealing with the winter blues.
Let’s just escape.
Waze & Odyssey are bringing some major heat with their new track, “Feel On Fire.”
Strictly house, this banging track has that iconic bass and garage house sound that the UK production duo are known for.
I don’t really have much to say about this track except the fact it’s an awesome dancefloor killer. And that says a lot!
Feel On Fire
It has been awhile since I’ve listened to the vocals of George Maple, but the singer has released a new single on Future Classic…so let’s give it a listen.
Titled “Talk Talk,” this melodic house track is a solid offering from the Australian songstress. And while the original is worthwhile, the house-filled Moon Boots remix is all that jazz and more.
