With so much music been handed to me at the Winter Music Conference and other stuff sent to me, I'm having a tough time presenting you everything in time. Here are some of the things pending a review:

  • Needs "Spring 2005 Sampler" (Needs Records)
  • Scott K vs The O'Jays "I love music 2005"
  • "Heartbeat Volume 2" mixed by Julius Papp (Loveslap Records)
  • more stuff from the WMC...

"Rofo Part Revisited" on Jamsteady Vol. 7 is originally from the Harlem Youth Percussion Group and was originally released in 1967 on Ubiquity Records. Thanks to Craig Campbell for the info.

Miami has finally gone to an end with its bunch of surprises and revelations to keep us quite busy in the weeks to come, having us lookin’ further to the calendar with the forthcoming edition of the Southport Weekender due to happen at the beginning of May then the Detroit gathering formerly known as the DEMF at the end of the same month. As for what awaits us this week, we’ve got a chat with Japanese producer Jazztronik talking about his new offering on Pantone Recordings. The Single Of The Week being the work of Raheem Devaughn on a slow vein with a production courtesy of Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez. Meanwhile, as the period of the month suggests, we have our attention focussed on the latest LP’s around, incl. Our Album Of The Month, courtesy of UK soul diva Verna Francis on Chillifunk.

Miami being 2 weeks behind, it’s now time for us to fully do what you expect from us while providing you with a comprehensive review of the event. Global impressions ? An increasing amount of parties (some of them being cancelled almost at the very last minute) added to some heavy humidity at some time, not to mention the usual excitation. The M3 Summit undoubtly successful on its challenge to find its own niche facing WMC’. More live P.A.’s often in top fine quality as demonstrated by Tortured Soul amongst others and, on the front of the new releases, a noticable good amount of aural pleasure.

House music is far from having said its last words, even though we’re in the middle of a real mutation in terms of promotion, as shown by a growing volume of CD’s replacing the good ol’vinyl format…

Miami’s already more than a fortnight back and we’re slowly but surely getting back on our feet with tons of newies to be featured on our Miami Special Pt.2 thereafter talking about nuttin’ but aural delites. On the image front, feel free to check some of the pictures we’ve taken over there on our M3 Gallery. Then we’ve renamed our In Da (Audio) Mix section, going for some more explicit title under the DJ’s In Da Mix name with two contributions respectively from Chicagoan Julius the Mad Thinker and Toulouse based Lea Lisa, who also happens to open our newly launched DJ’s On Da List section. As for our editorial team’s concern, expect new names to appear very soon incl. NYC multi activist Peter Reyes by the end of this month. And, as hedonism doesn’t have boundaries, new sections dedicated to the pleasure of the mouth ! Isn’t life that beautiful for f*** sake ?

Props to Franck Roger widely contributing to this with his rework of Blaze ‘Most Precious Love’ with a damned silky touch thus having this title being our Single Of The Week for the second time.

Finally, this is it ! We’re back with our system now fully in order, after more than 2 months of turbulences inbetween our DSL connection made unoperational because of a junk provider and our phone line being interrupted at some time by our usual operator without the possibility of having our responsability being established on any case. Our excuses then once more to you, our visitors, and our thanks for your understanding, but also to all of those to who we haven’t been able to answer properly during this period, wishing that no more breakdown of the likes is to damage the development of our entreprise. As a direct consequence, you may now get ready to see us progressively going back to our usual rhythm as far as the updates of our sections is concerned.

On display this week, our 33RPM column and a new selection of some of the best long players around incl. our Album Of The Month by Raw Artistic Soul to be followed chatwise this week by the purveyors of the recently released Rebounces LP (in other words : S.U.M.O.).
