I apologize for mostly mainly older tunes, as I'm  abit drunk and have been banished to the bedroom by a (less than 5 people) birthday party for my girlfriends's best mate downstairs[1].

Korda - Move Your Body (To The Sound)

Basically, any mix you click on is fantastic (same production crew as Alex Lee, Axe Corner etc)

One of my favourite Disco cut-ups courtesy of Danny Krivit (who seems to make a living doing them)

DJ Romain & Danny Krivit - Philly's Groove

Always loved this as well, Sounds of Blackness meets Crown Heights Affair. Fantastic work by Phil Asher.

Demonstration - Prayer Over Pressure

 1. As in, the party's downstairs

I really like Pal Joey, he was definitely one of the first people sampling disco and jazz in house tracks, my favourites are probably

Pal Joey - Spend The Night
Earth People - Reach Up To M,ars
Earth People - Dance
Soho - Hot Music

He also did brilliant remixes of The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds and Deee Lite - How Do You Say

If you dig deep you'll also find he produced a lot of hip hop tracks for BDP etc, he's an unsung hero.

Never heard much of Pal Joey, other than his name and the track I posted, I'll have to have a dig. You definitely hear the hip-hop influence on Hot Music. Reach Up To Mars is my fav of the ones you posted though, great track.

nothing obscure from me, I'm not that familiar with the genre

still, I like what Italians have done with it

Optik - Illusions

Deep Choice - Fix of 4:38


There was a great, strange tune that came out on the same label as Deep Choice that I just remembered

New Latin Age - Long Wave

The Italians made some excellent deep house in the early 90s

He was involved in the same studio (Power Play) where a lot of the early NY hip hop was made, EPMD knew him and used Hot Music on their I'm Mad remix.

Missy Elliot used it in I'm Really Hot too.

I mean, I know it's Underground Resistance, but I've always classed this as house

Underground Resistance - The Theory

And, we might as well, seeing as the original version of Your Love was never released

You might like MACH  - On And On which is basically a disco mash up/megamix that inspired Saunders to create his own version.

Ah, those are really good thanks. That Santre track is great! Again, I've heard none of these before.

I'm a big fan of prog house. Another of my all time favourites, from another Nick Warren GU mix, is Don't Play the Game by Aquaculture

As far as I can tell, Aquaculture was a talented studio engineer who put out only two tracks in his own right. Don't Play the Game is exceptional.

That's great, not heard it before but it's exactly the kind of thing I'd have on in the car. Might track down that GU if it's going cheap, I'm a fan of Nick Warren as a DJ and half of Way Out West, who I nearly mentioned in my last post. They released a new album 3 years ago and I played it many times.

Some more recent tunes:

Dusky - Skin Deep (Global Communication Remix)

Way Out West - Running Away feat. Eli & Fur
Way Out West - Slam

Dosem - Extraction

And a classic

Harry ''Choo Choo'' Romero - Night @ The Black (Main Mix)

oh Way out West, splendid. I remember Sol, the enormous bell-end in Hollyoaks parked up in one episode in his Boy Racer car playing Ajare

Anyway, house music. This is what's on right now and it qualifies as the very best: Isolee - Brazil.com (ole ole mix)

This came up for me earlier, couldn't get enough of it when it was first released - amazing strings and bass

Mugwump - Boutade

You'll shit bricks when this gets to the end and you realise what you've been listening to

The Field - A Paw In My Face

Lovely instrumental minimal house rub of Riders On The Storm

I'm like a kid in a sweet shop in this thread and I haven't even listened to it all yet, lots of top drawer stuff.

Josh Wink knows the value of a very long, gradual build up which he did on I'm Ready under his Size 9 alias, and also did on the fantastic 516 Acid . It's crisp as fuck to begin with, but when it unleashes at 5:43 - oh my daaayyys! There's no point just skipping to that point though, the build up is integral.

I used to like this one with King Britt on Strictly Rhythm from 1990 (I think it was his debut), kinda chilled out hip house with Tears For Fears and African Head Charge samples.

E-Culture - Tribal Confusion

According to comments under the Underneath remix, the version on Deep Dish Yoshiesque 2 is an amalgamation of this the original and the underneath remix.

Edit:

Just revisiting Y2 and that whole section is packed with belters:

Always Remember to Respect and Honour your Mother (Deep Dish mix)

My favourite Deep Dish thing is the Carl Craig mix of BT - Relativity on their record label.

I think you posted that mix before when I mentioned Guillaume La Tortue - Salinas, Journey Of The Dragons is on there too - he had some good taste.

I'm sure I did. That's an extraordinary track. Was a great mix to buy when I was just getting into all this 27 years ago. Tracks really stick with you - like this one.

I bought that almost at random when it came out, and it's insanely good. It has stood up really, really well over the years, definitely a classic.

Oh yes, a heavy rotational for me. I do love house that takes you to outer space.

Azymuth's Jazz Carnival (Space Jazz Global Communication Remix), timeless

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ev9NATSFaeI

Maas - Look at Me Falling, Now (I:Cube Simple Mix) - a melding of genius minds

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wBC3V29qGo

Max 404 - Niceta, one of his more housey ones.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVj_cgM4bHw

I don't think Ross Couch has made a dud record - Sounds Like Summer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwzIL2WO_a4

Similarly, Chris Cowie, elvated here to impossible heights by the master Ewan Pearson

Not THE Circulation, but a different Circulation (The Return)

An excellent set of choices. That Circulation one is something else eh?

Yeah it's beautiful. The whole compilation is full of equally incredible stuff, but I'm sure you know what already. If not, you won't regret familiarising yourself with it.

Its amazing that i was playing that back in the 90s to bemused housemates and it still does the business.

I hesitate to serve this up among so many classics, but here's one of mine from this year. It's a deep/jazzy number with live bass, sax etc so if that sounds like your bag, I'd appreciate a listen. I had MAW, Kerri Chandler, mid to late 90s NYC type stuff in mind when I made it.

Nice, especially the sax and synth sweep breakdown. Percussion is novel too.
