Vital Radio 188 – Hour 1: Speedboats & Big Explosions

| February 18th, 2013 | No Comments »

Juan Sanchez and The Bullet team up to form “Speedboats and Big Explosions”. These retro cops bring together the funk and the tech to create a sound that is as awesome as their glorious moustaches.

Their first single “Hazel Eyes” features the unmistakable vocals of Marcie and is signed to System Recordings in NYC. With the first track under their belt, the duo kept busy in the studio and on the decks.

Inspired by the soulful vocals of Andrew Roachford, SBBE reworked Dr Rubberfunk’s “Trouble Woman” into an energy-charged house bomb, which is featured alongside house superstars Gramophonedzie, Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grand, Chocolate Puma Remix and Prok & Fitch on the ‘Jalepeno House Vol. 2′ compilation.

Since then, their original tracks ‘In The Cinema’, ‘Bump It’, ‘Strange Justice’ and ‘Porn Stache’ have been released on South American house label Muzik X Press.  Look for their latest rework of the classic “Music Sound Better With You” is due out on Emotive with remixes from Hed Kandi’s Carl Hanaghan and Andrea Martini.

Their delicious Martini of funk, tech and soul is shaken, not stirred, and is always setting the right mood for the party.

Vital Radio 182 – Hour 2: Dj Ups & Kukoo Wasp

| October 4th, 2012 | 1 Comment »

Dj Ups and Kukoo Wasps are brothers from the UK who produced and Dj-ed in London England during the boom of the initial rave scene in 1990.

 

After a 13 year break, the guys returned with groundbreaking new albums from Obviously High and The Moog, and EPs from Kukoo Wasp, DJ Ups and Thundermental.

 

A refreshing mixture of nu-skool, progressive breaks, old-skool, deep house, and prog house. In June 2006, WXM Music relocated to Toronto, Canada and evolved into Liquid Stairs.

 

The boys once again hit the decks on the 2012 Liquid Stairs and Vital Radio boatcruise  and showed Toronto what funky house really means.

Tuesday Tunes: Ultra Nate

| July 6th, 2010 | No Comments »

Ever since Ultra released the internationally renowned deep house classic, “It’s Over Now” with the esteemed Basement Boys in 1989, Naté has been a perennial force in dance music. Considering the ephemeral nature of dance/electronica music (e.g. Hot today, gone tomorrow), Naté’s endurance attests to her musical acumen. She attributes solid songwriting and being a true artist, as opposed to an anonymous voice, to her longevity. “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written about 95 percent of my material,” Naté explains. “In that music, there’s a very specific personality that comes across, which really transcends the dance-floor moment and becomes a part of people’s lives.”

Rocking the decks for over five years at Deep Sugar (at the Paradox every 2nd Saturday) Ultra has secured gigs in Australia, Montreal, Brazil, the UK (at Ministry Of Sound, no less) and France, where she drops a regular radio mix on the respected dance station, Radio FG.

Crazy set of non-expeditious tracks from Milton Jackson

| July 5th, 2010 | No Comments »

I was going to save this for tomorrow’s Tuesday Tunes posting but it’s too good to wait. Check out this super laid back set of funky/deep house tunes courtesy of Milton Jackson.

You’ve gotta love this one of a kind mix. In case you didnt already know:

Milton Jackson (aka Barry Christie) Released his first EP aged 19 on Solemusic’s Tronicsole imprint. Known for his dark, almost techno influenced deep house music. Milton Jackson tends to fuse straight driving beats with eclectic, techy production styles. His first and so far only long player, ‘The Bionic Boy’ was received well by critics and the house fraternity and it spawned the Pepe Bradock influenced ‘Sunlight’.

After having mainly appeared on Glasgow labels such as Solemusic and Glasgow Underground, 2006 sees Milton spread his wings with EPs due out on Freerange, Silver Network, Urbantorque and Luke Sardello’s Icon Recordings. He has also recorded under a variety of pseudonyms, even venturing into the down-tempo domain as Napoleon Solo. His Bear Trax imprint released Mylo’s first vinyl release when the pair recorded as ‘The Pretty Boys’.
