Feel The DJ

Paul Gardner - Music In My Soul (Original Mix)

This track has really been working me. Great deep house hook over a slightly tribal drum with a a hint of 2010 tech and an excellent vocal loop. Great crescendo!

Happy New Year Everyone! Wishing all of you the very best in 2011!

Why don't I ever pass a hitch hiker like this? Say hello to Anderson Davis. I promise Anderson if you ever need a ride, you can count on me!

Razor & Guido Ft. Tara Harrison - Without You (Main Mix Vocal)

A great combination of the classic Razor Guido formula with a touch of 2010 house sounds. Sassy and classy vocal house for the gay bar.

Tony Moran Ft. Ultra Nate - Destination (Edson Pride Epic Mix)

Once again Edson delivers the best of the circuit flavored mixes. The (New Era Anthem) is really good as well but I still side with Pride.

This Old Bitch...

will let you have it on the dance floor to this track! Don't make me pop a Geritol!

Yolanda Be Cool - Afro Nuts (Original)

Girl one word PERCUSSION! Ok more than one word excellent vocal edits. Pure House Music!

Did someone say nuts?

Make It Better

Soulmagic & Ebony Soul Ft. Ann Nesby - Get Your Thing Together

Oh my love for classic soulful house knows no limits and this track makes that love blossom. Inspirational vocals, funk, soul, and percussion. Can I get an Amen! The only trouble is, I can't decide which version I like best. The divine Mr. Jamie Lewis gives us a deeper darker version while the Soulmagic dub delivers a crisper heavy on the funk version. As Prince recently said "get your foot spray, cause it's getting funky in here".

Austin City Limits Music Festival

ACL 2010

Since not all things in life revolve around house music and because I am a fan of most music in general, I thought I'd share some of my highlights from the 2010 ACL Festival in Austin, TX.

1. If you have not heard White Rabbits then you need too. I was completely unaware of the band and completely blown away when I stumbled upon their show at the AMD stage. Rock with a "MIKA" edge. In a word extraordinary!

2. Grace Potter & The Nocturnals were flat out fantastic. In between songs at Basia Bulat, I heard a female vocalist whaling away like Tina Turner. I looked up to my right and the jumbo tron at the AMD stage showed me women with long blonde locks and sequin dress thrashing about like a mad women. Of course I immediately kicked everyone off my blanket, announced I was clearly at the wrong show and proceeded to move to the AMD stage code red. This band and most notably this women absolutely threw down. It was an amazing show!

3. In Gospel/Blues tent I got the divine pleasure of being introduced to Beats Antique. Some where between India, Tennessee, and Sound Factory is where you'll find this unique bands sound. A dramatic contrast and combination of sounds that miraculously works. Sadly my camera batteries died this day and I have no photo to share with you.

4. Deadmau5 was everything you would expect him to be. It was a fun show that magically translated well to an outdoor "live" music festival. Some of my friends who are hard core anti-house music heads were even won over. By far this was the youngest audience I was in.

There were many other shows that were good or fantastic such as T Bird & The Breaks, Carolyn Wonderland, The Relatives, and of course Muse who seriously rocked. If you are looking for a break from the house beat, check out some of these great talents. Below is a picture of yours truly with a couple of my wing-women and a closing shot as I walked out of beautiful Zilker Park.

It's Like Butter

Duck Sauce - Barbra Streisand (Original)

Awe Lawdy! Duck Sauce is back with another fun dance floor smack down. Disco in nature with an electro sensibility, this tracks simple verbal chant of Babs will have the queeny queens working. Really fun track.

And if doesn't, this delicious photo of Jake G surely will. I don't know if I have ever wanted to see a movie so badly.

Look Out Sukka

TNT Inc. Vs. Alex Dimitri - Jingo (Miguel Migs Salted Remix)

Migs lays it down with his Salted mix. Taking a classic and working it over with funky guitar loops, excellent percussion, sweet bass, and one very subtle gay vocal edit. Not known for being a titian of the gay house music scene but highly respected in terms of proper/soul house circles, I was surprised and impressed by the use of a very popular gay vocal hook. House music baby all night long.

Aint Nothing Like The Real Thing

Rebeka Brown - Real Things (Taito Tikaro Essence Remix 2010)

Cute mainstream track with a progressive touch and just the slightest hint of tribal. Really enjoyed the guitar loop myself. Vocal lovers will be all over this.

Hair Weave Wearing Kathy Lee K-Mart Shopping

Karma - Business Class (Tribal Dub)

I'm not sure why I didn't post this eons ago. It explodes on the dance floor like a circuit boy on viagra and any other number of drugs. Sassy Gay House Music. I love to drop this track as a surprise. It always gets a reaction. This track among many others is always in my case under the classics section.

Music Is

Nick Harvey Presents Halo - Pure Love (Nick Harvey Main Club Mix)

Well what can I say, Nick Harvey Did It Again. You will understand when you hear the classic reproduction loop.

Eddie Amador & Corey Andrew - Dancefloor Emergency

Well listen to me. Ain't but two things come outta house music. That's steers and that's queers. And honey, I don't see no horns! Walk Work Live Eat Sleep Work to the Beat. Amador nails it in two awesome versions, one tribal and one classic disco house. This is a code red, get it while it's hot and you can, fantastic house music track. Dare I say it rivals his... Oh no I couldn't possibly or could I?

Bring It!

Criminal Vibes - Bring The Beat (Original Mix)

Hello friends and followers. The move to the temp home is complete and I am back on line at least partially. This is the time of year that my paying job goes ape shit crazy busy so my posting will be, as I can.

Todays offering is a simple house house track. Great sassy vocal edits and classic drum beats. A bit on the tribal side with a touch of sax.
