Picks of the Week
Underground Ministries featuring Kenny Bobien "I shall not be moved" (Remixes)(SoulFuric Records CD Promo)
The wait is over!! One of the definite gospel house classics finally returns with fantastic remixes (available to a very few selected people only for quite some time). Originally released on Flatline Records back in 1999, the Holland Tunnel Project & James Perry produced "I shall not be moved" features an inspiring vocal by the one and only Kenny Bobien alongside incredible background vocals that give this song an incomparable uplifting feeling. The original is pure timeless New Jersey garage that is taken to new grounds by DJ Meme who gives it an irresistibly stompin' reworking that is beautifully orchestrated, with a reprise that will bring tears to your eyes. Brian Tappert provides a pumpin' edit of the original version alongside a relentless peak time dub with killer chords, while Soul Creation come up with a deeply thumpin' interpretation with resistless keys leading the ways for the unmistakable vocals. Their dub takes things even deeper, with hypnotic keys adding an underground touch.
Domenico Navarra featuring Monique Henry "So lonely" (Part Two)(GrooveLand Music Records CD Promo)
Part one of this release is a former "Pick of the Week" here at Spirit of House, and part two gets the same honors as these news mixes take "So lonely" to the next level. Whether it is Kings of Soul, Haldo or eDeep, what this package offers is blissful deep house reworkings, with Monique's heartfelt vocals shining on each and every interpretation. Whether it is the deeply thumpin' take by Kings of Soul, the deeply groovin' Haldo reworking or eDeep's funk spiced deeply rumblin' affair, there is no bad choice here. As a bonus, the full length version of the 'Original Mix' is included in the package.
