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.

Ah, my last day before classes start. I’m basically just trying to relax and enjoy this last day before the stress of school work soon overwhelms me. So I’m taking the day uber chill, and enjoying the beautiful sounds of house music.
It’s nice to just lay down, write in my journal, and have the sounds of house soothing my ears. At the moment I’m listening to my YouTube playlist and checking out some of my favorite YouTube channels in search of some good music. I usually love the latest uploads from Househead4life38 & Madorasindahouse. Both channels always have some great uploads that will satisfy any soulful house lover out there, but Madora’s latest upload “If You’re Ready (DJ Haze Chillydub Remix)” is such a beautiful soul infused track.
The track is by DJ Doctor and it features some lovely vocals by Nathalia. It’s a track that comes from DJ Haze and Marcin Sucharski’s Poland based record label, Pierogi Records. I’m personally a big fan of DJ Haze, especially his track “Freak” with Sandy Rivera. So I knew that his label would always pump out some good house music, and this latest track proves my assumption correct.
Check out the track below, and if you’re feeling the usual Monday morning blues, then listen to some house music; a soul always cheers up with the titillating sounds of soulful house prancing around.

I wake up in the morning, I pray to God, get out of bed to stretch, turn on my laptop, and begin blasting house music in my room. This has become a routine for the past eight years, a routine that doesn’t have an end in sight. I barely listen to hip-hop nowadays and when I’m not grooving to jazz or gospel, I’m having a spiritual revolution with house. House is a major part of my life, I may not be a dj or an active musician (retired from the days of playing flute), but I love listening to house when I’m writing, working out, reading, playing video games, or simply laying on my bed and reflecting on life.
Sometimes it’s exhilarating to lay down and reflect on my life while the soulful sounds of house music pump energy into my soul. It’s hard to explain the feeling I get when I listen to house, but it can be equated with a euphoric sensation. It’s like I’m in a relationship with house music, I’m that committed. I don’t bad mouth it, I don’t cheat on it with techno, and I actually take time to learn new things about it on a daily basis. Whether it’s new record labels, new artists, or finding new clubs that play soulful house music and not mindless radio anthems, I’m dedicated to being a full-time house music junkie. Full-time student, full-time writer, and full-time house lover….I like the sound of that!
I’ve been busy with the final weeks of school work and coming up with an explosive yet romantic end to my novel, so I haven’t had much time to blog. Yet I realize that blogging doesn’t just have to be posting rants about life and dating, but it can be a musical experience. A lot of people are intrigued by the sounds of house and always craving more, so I could do my service in the world by passing on the good music I hear. I want the world know about the deep bass, piano chords, angelic vocal riffs, and beautiful musical accents that make you jack your body. All this information I have acquired over the years and continue to learn on daily day thanks to podcasts and Youtube, I want to pass on. So be sure to come back on the regular. I’m going to start showing you who I really am and how the beautiful sounds of house music kiss my soul….
