Tons of projects under development at the mo’ on the other side of your screens, not only here on IDMW but also by the likes of our partners, with the future displaying of this column being no exception, speakin’ of which we’ll keep you posted in the coming weeks. Welcome to TSIDM # 7 in the series…

Dunno aboutcha peeps, but for those of us based in Central Europe, the least we can say is that Spring takes its time to come, leavin’ us into quite chilly temperatures and the hope for brighter days soon to come. At least, our ears are graced with a whole bunch of up & coming vibes destined to blow your hearts and souls…

Big Cee of Consortium Muzik recently told me how there’s no way to expect bubble gum stuff from his label and the recently release ‘Waiting 2 Xhale EP’ is a brilliant illustration to this, gathering 3 absolute cool gems from 3 talented female singers from Carolyn Victorian to Miss Yvonne. Not to mention that team made of new comer TMJAA and promising production team Monte Carlo Method on the aquatic and heavenly ‘Love High’. A not to be missed affair which should blow the minds of those chillin’ headz such as Phil ‘Cantoma’ Mison, Chris Coco, José Padilla and the likes… And the same comment to apply to Seed Allstarz featuring Liza Zayas’s newie called ‘Moment Of Truth’ on DJ Bruno’s Utopia Boston newly launched imprint. An absolute nugget delivered in two worth the listen # versions, from the metronomic approach on the Seed In The City Mix reminding of the much underrated Vanessa Daou’s Zipless LP released in the mid 90’s, to the smooth jazz/phonky environment as declined on the Utopia Sundays mix. No doubt, a drop of Boston cream like we’ve never experienced before.

Goin’ abstract with the Aak Dub Mix of DJ Aakmael’s ‘Feel It’ which should reach the expectations of those of you into jazzy deep atmospheres over crispy synths effect and smooth African-influenced percussions (Unified Records). On a more acoustic vein, comes the shabada rhythm led ‘Sign Of The Times’ seing Gil Scott-Heron-influenced singer Mustafa Akbar surrounded by an impressive line up of talented musicians. All of’em giving birth to a definitive classic which shoud put the jazz headz down to earth (Poji). Released in 2006 the broken beatish ‘Put It On’ by Atjazz featuring Ernesto is given a new life via remixes with the version of the latest reachin’ absolute heights over a lectro bossa jazzy phonk-influenced groove both deep and mental to be compared to Peven Everett’s early works (Mantis). Bobby Magnifique’s ‘Be My Number One’ bein’ the subject of the same treatment with reliftings courtesy of Rafael Moraes and Azee. The latest getting our preference with his destroying blend of lectro Brazilian FX transforming the affair into a boiling hot dub (Abicah Soul Records). Obviously set for dancefloor devastation is the stompin’ ‘Feel Good Music’ by the likes of DJ Oji & DJ Buzzard with Original Man on the MC Seat on this tribal percussion led banger enlightened with flute and Spanish guitar parts (Poji).

3° Global famous Julius the MadThinker opens the acount for newly launched label RMA based in Bordeaux under his Aid To The Soulless guise with the cool and bumpin’ ‘I’ll Do’ featuring Jon Pierce over a friendly’ phonky groove twisted with a bit a jazzy elements. On a slightly more directive beat comes the jazzyphonkatmospheric ‘Baby With The Brown Eyes’ by Buki Cole & Free Radikal as remixed by Tyrone Francis and Quentin Harris enlightened by an emotive vocal interpretation and a killer synthesized bassline (Latenite). Going further way with the much appealing ‘Feels Like Heaven’ by the likes of Divided Souls embedding an enligthening vocal performance courtesy of Kwame Remy much reminding of those characteristic UK singers such as Babatunde Bayiewu of Lighthouse Family and Don-E (White Lotus Club). Temperature’s definitely rising with Soulf/folk female singer Shae makin’ an interesting debut on the bouncin’ synth led ‘If I Could’ produced by Major (Imbasa). UK label Papa Records has no surpringly the art of keepin’ the fire burning, commissionning Dennis Ferrer on the revamp Of Reel People featuring Darien’s ‘Alibi’ turning it into a serious soulful jazzy affair over a killing lectroified groove. And the pressure looks to reach higher peaks over the bumpin’ ‘Love 4 Love’ by the likes of of Akri Jr & Claudio Di Carlo with Michelle Weeks at the top of her form. Taken from the aptly named ‘Miami Vice (The House Edition) EP’ on Just For Fun, a killer cut which might pretty well become an anthem bein’ given the right exposure at the right time. We shall see…

Leavin’ you the way we’ve welcomed you on this 7th issue of TSIDM with a couple of heavenly jams. The first to be credited to Toronto songstress Sacha (Williamson) delivering her follow up to ‘That’s Enough For Me’ with the Dave Campbell produced ‘I Can’t Pretend’. And what a vibrant interpretation she gives on this smooth appealing piece of soul (Shines) Meanwhile the Kenny Carvajal & Swaylo’s 2006 released ‘You Remind Me’ comes into a brand new dimension as subtly remixed by Abicah Soul & Tony Loreto (Phuture Sole)… See ya in a fortnight!
