Various "Miami 2012" (Beatport EP)(KingStreet Records CD Promo)
We are about five weeks away from this years Winter Music Conference in Miami, the perfect time for labels to present their special "Miami/WMC Samplers" to showcase their upcoming releases. Similar to previous years, KingStreet Records drop both a 'Traxsource Edition' and 'Beatport Edition', each of them loaded with fresh productions of various styles guaranteed to set the floor on fire. Highlights on the 'Traxsource Edition' are the funktastic "Tonight" by Alex Ander & Deep Grounder featuring passionate vocals by Virag, the groovy jazz-funk inspired "Inside" by Mind Street featuring uplifting vocals by Jalley and the latin/jazz influenced "Cafe Mambo" by Eric Powa B. On the 'Beatport Edition' we recommend to check out the discofied tunes "Yes I wanna" by Marcelo Vak (samples Sylvester's "Do you wanna funk" to full effect), the uber cool "My Disco" by Yakka and the remorselessly stompin' "Can you feel it"by Squicciarini, Nick Vono, & Alexbi which birngs back memories of Delegation's "Heartache no. 9" of yesteryear.
Beaten Soul featuring Maiya "Fool" (Seamless Soul CD Promo)
Hot on the heels of the timeless "Do you believe" by Hennings Project, Seamless Soul present another bomb sure to rock the floor. Beaten Soul teams up with songstress Maiya on "Fool", a spell binding production using a remorseless bass heavy backdrop as playground for Maiya's heartfelt vocals and luscious synth melodies. The remixes are courtesy of Dave Mayer who turns the track into peak time favorite, while Spiritual Blessings deepen the vibe on their delectable vocal and dub mixes laced with delightful keys.
Missoless featuring Blue Smith "Sex crime" / "Love that satisfies" (ManyVibes Records CD Promo)
ManyVibes Records from France introduce us to this lovely release by Missoless who teams up with vocalist Blue Smith on "Sex crime" and "Love that satisfies", two uplifting productions built around smooth funk drenched backings, celestial keys, classy horns and Blue Smith's sultry vocal performance. DJ Rork contributes a subtle remix of "Sex crime" which oozes with a truly soulful yet lively feel, while Missoless herself reworks "Love that satisfies" and gives the track a fiery electrofied edge.

The debut release for Sound Kemystry is courtesy of Ikenga Project (Lady Blacktronika & Chris Mitchell) who impress with the deeper than deep "Snow EP" which features vocals from the legendary Carolyn Harding and Lady Blacktronika under her alias AkuaRising. The title track "Snow" features seductive vocals by Carolyn Harding alongside ethereal keys and chords over a moody backdrop, with a killer remix included by none other than deep house dons Harley & Muscle. Next is the gritty somewhat dirty "Bullshit", and last but not least we have the hypnotizing "Ancestral channels" featuring AkuaRising's sexy vocals and enchanting chants over afrotastic rhythms.

While we're on the topic, here is another outstanding deep house release by Lee Tristram. His "Inspired EP" is a serious slice of deepness, with each of the three featured tracks bringing back memories from the past with their old school inspired smooth yet infectious rhythms and gorgeous melodies.
