    Love this one - dont think it got picked up on that strong - all about dancing to ease the pain - great lyrics, peaks nicely and good afro-percussion elements

    A tribute mix to the soulful house master! More write up in the link, but basically its some more recent favourites first and then rolling out with some of those massively influential garage dubs from the early 90s.

    this is the Dawn Tallman ive been playing a lot (theres a great piano instrumental piece of this but the vocal is cool too)

    Big tune of 2018 so far for me is Byron Stingly "Girl You Need a Change of Mind" (Mind Changin House Mix) - great vocal from Byron in the first half and then the second half really goes off with loads of piano vamps and strings. Not online anywhere for some reason, and only an extract on Trax Source...its all about that second half though.

    I do like a preaching 'hype talk' tune that may not do huge amounts musically but names what house music is all about...i guess a tradition started with Jack Had A Groove....great little mid set mood setters
    Love these two recent ones:

    Really feeling this, switching from 3rd to 4th gear in Room 2
    Soundsystem tune

    one of the biggest tunes of the year for me, funky, shuffling, future classic, MaW meets Moodyman meets 4hero vibes, gets bigger with every play - just a groove but its a killer one

    moody Being alive increases risk of death.

    lot of M.A.W tracks in this thread, loved there early stuff, the album, Nuyorcian Soul took it to another level, with quality of production and the collabs with artists like roy ayres.

    I booked Kenny Dope for a gig I put on a few years ago, he plays a mean old skool hip hop set too.

    cost me a fortune but it was worth it

    feeling pretty shattered tbh...these two 1992 cuts from Jovonn are hitting the spot perfectly...deep new jersey, sweet and mellow...liquid football house

    13 analogue bubblebath minutes long

    great write up that

    Kay Dee records though is "A division of MAW Records, Inc. Administrated by Keb Darge & Kenny Dope hence the name K(ay)-D(ee)"

    yeah he's a crazy ass Scottish dj who is infamous for breakdancing during his own sets and banter on the mic.

    Went to check out Irfan Rainy and Mike Huckaby on Friday and Irfan absolutely killed it. What a DJ. His mixes are perfect for this thread and there's plenty on Mixcloud etc to get stuck into it.

    Anyway, he played this, which I've been a big fan of for ages:

    Didn't know he produced it, too! :cool:
