Next up in the series is a 33.3 RPM version of Trouble Men’s “Raw”. When normally played this track has a garagey feel to it, but when slowed down to 33.3 has a liquid funk slick to it. The track is really long especially when slowed down, I don’t play out the entire track in my mixes but rather sneak it in for a while. It has a great build to it and the beat hits just how like.

Tiger & Woods have just wrapped up their US tour and are generous enough to give away an entire album for free. It’s not DJ friendly stuff (only 192kbps), but it certainly is perfect for some headphone listening. 15 top notch tracks, all untitled!

I had the honor and pleasure to DJ alongside Ritesh, the label head of Adult Contemporary and American Standard. I opened things up early and kept the tempo low. Ritesh picked it up and took the sound to your head, he is a great selector and DJ. If you own any of the records he has put out on his labels you are fully aware of that already!

Enjoy!

Eric Duncan has been hitting the spot for me as far as the craft of the edit goes lately. I am the kind of listener who loves to get the full fledged vocal rendition out of an edit. Only teasing a split second vocal snippet in an edit can really get a dance floor wound up but if there isn’t that release into the full rendition then I am left feeling cheated. Dunks does it proper on the B side for sure, in my opinion that is the winner. It is a solid restructure and mastering of Crown Heights Affair’s “Say a Prayer for Two.”

A side is an extended jam session that could have stood alone without any vocals and been a solid track, which pretty much goes contrary to what I said, but the instrumentation is on point. That is where this is a winner, selection. The vocals though aren’t to be under estimated, they are teased in perfectly and when the vocal rendition is finally released, is a great addition. Pure dancers delight.

This project fell into the perfect hands, Nicholas has hit the mark with the early nineties US deep house. You can expect to hear some classics sounding as robust and deep as ever. In anticipation for this release enjoy a free vinyl rip from my own personal collection. This is one of my favorite produced by one of the originators of the label… back in ’91!

A Burrell Thang – “I Need It^3”

Vinyl is expensive, so you got to love it when you know you are truly getting some bang for your buck. This double LP sampler is absolutely that. This sort of release is refreshing. I feel like I am absolutely splurging in picking up a whole bunch of new tracks from new artists, but it’s all on one release.

Future Times is based out of Silver Spring, MD & Washington, DC. Two places that are probably not on the radar for most of us. So bust out your map and put a big gold glittery star over those cities because there is definitely some quality music coming your way from those two locations.

.

Here are some of my favorite from the sampler

Juju & Jordash – “Musketache”

.

Hunee – “Folga”

.

Steve Summers – “Uncollected Groove” (Snippet)

.

Confused House – “Concrete” (snippet)

Make sure to check out the rest of the release because there are five more tracks I haven’t shared here, all of them hold their own.

And for free edits and vinyl rips from the Future Times people visit there website. There are probably 40 or more free downloads! Future Times
