We are kicking things off with a three track sampler from the upcoming "Mix The Vibe: Teddy Douglas & DJ Spen" double mixed-CD release titled "Mix The Vibe: Teddy Douglas Tools", featuring three exclusive remixes/edits: first up is a jazzed-up, percussively stormin' Teddy Douglas remix of Trans of Life's "Delight earth", followed by a smokin' remix of the Sublevel classic "Time & time again" courtesy of Tomo. Lastly there is the hotter than hot Teddy Douglas edit of the Pasta Boys remix of "Where the music takes you" by Ananda Project (Nite Grooves Records CD Promo). In celebration of Barack Obama's election as next president of the USA, Matt Hughes presents "Hope over fear" featuring an emotional speech and warm melodic keys on top of a deeply rumblin' groove (CD-R). Slaag Records have just put out the full promo of Eddie Nicholas' "Missing you" including a brand mesmerizing new mix remix by Alex Dimitri that goes as deep as it gets (CD Promo). Mr. Mama presents his 'DNY Atmosphera Rmx' of "Fight for love" by Alex Finkin & Reverend P featuring Jocelyn Mathieu turning the track into a resistless dance floor stomper loaded with spacy chords (CD-R).
We continue with more deep house madness courtesy of DJ Leon El Ray whose "Baby blue" got remixed by CJ Giovanni into an irresistible affair featuring captivating keyboard play over a propulsive groove (CD-R). With "Madness", DJ Dayzee continues to make herself a name as a gifted deep house producer, with the track being a minimal yet very effective, deep hypnotic track for the darker moments of the night (CD-R). Filta Freqz (Simon Cortez and Marco Manrique) go deep with a funky twist on "Freqin U" which is built around an inexorable groove and infectious chords (CD-R). Claude Monnet, Klement Bonelli and Rocco team up for the ultra-massive two tracker "90's" / "Les celestins" which is pure underground electronic madness. "90's" is a deeply drivin' track with a slight techy edge which features infectious vocals, while "Les celestins" is hypnotizing with its lush synths. Rocco's dub is a killer, with they keys guaranteed to send the crowd into a frenzy (SSOH Records CD Promo).
Andrew Chibale returns to Next Dimension Music with "Stranger to you" which features three fierce deep house tracks on a lovely ambient tinged edge, with some sweet tech house sounds thrown in for full effect on the dance floor (CD Promo). Martijn presents "Dusty days", a slick piece of deep minimal house on a slight techy edge that is guaranteed to mesmerize the dancer with its infectious groove. The package comes complete with remixes by Pederson and Flip (Just Deep Music Records CD Promo). The "Tinshed EP" by Steve Jones features two tracks: "Bunker" in its original form is a melodic deep house track with a somewhat progressive touch that is given a lovely makeover by Danel Kyo, while "Tinshed" tougher, more techy affair, with Sendos Fuera twisting things around for a great alternate version (Deepology Digital Records CD Promo). We close this update with Matthias 'Matty' Heilbronn's resistless remix of Michelle Williams new single "Hello heartbreak" that will blow you away with the wicked keys and synths that perfectly harmonize with the sultry vocals to create a captivating feel (Sony/BMG Records CD-R).
