Choices - July / August 2014

Ron Trent - Humans Drums and Machines (Electric Blue)
Album sample containing two tracks from Ron's forthcoming long player. His usual Afro tribal deep sounds.

Lady Blacktronica - Nuism EP (Sound Black Recordings)
The Lady of deep house has been very busy so far in 2014. This is her latest five track extended player on her Sound Black Recordings label. Energetic deep house!

Mr Raoul K - Still Living in Slavery - Pt. 2 (Boabab Music)
Two part sampler releases going live before the album to be issued in September. Head straight to the Sen Kela remix by Ron Trent.

Chieko Kinbara Feat. Josh Milan - Just Like Love 'Louie Vega Remix' (Vega Records)
I am sure that Louie Vega could not help himself in remixing what I call the song of the year.

Snuff Crew - Love Hurts EP (What Ever Not)
Number five for Italian label What Ever Not who continues its journey and issues this new three track plus a remix extended player. This time What Ever Not heads to Germany with producers Snuff Crew producing this release, and remix duty for the title track handed over to the Dutch Morning Factory. Chicago Vibes!

Riverside Sandman ft Jeremy Ellis - Into Your Story 'Kai Alce Distinctive Vocal' (Fast Forward) 
Kai Alce adds magic to a great vocal.

Philani Zuma - Zee Fabulous EP (DNH)
Five track extended player from Philani. I like the building atmosphere from The Saxy Tune.

Ugly Drums - The Freak EP (Faces Records)
Cologne based Steffen Baldo continues his rise with this interesting four track extended player which features collaboration with Kalakuta, Chesney, and :brownstudy.

Blackhall and Bookless - Se7en EP (Jaunt Records)
Fred P reshape of Morgans Freeman is the one to pick in this deep and dark release.

various artists - Mutants Vol. 2 (Tokyo Dawn Records)
Twelve different releases all remixed by the good hands of Swedish producer Opolopo.  Some big names in this from Mario Biondi with his hit This Is What You Are, to Joey Negro and his Sunburst Band, and Roy Ananda.

Klevakeys - Lost and Found (unquantize)
The second album on label unquantize comes from London artist Klevakeys, who brings twelve different tracks in various house music forms.

Leotone - Baby Miracle (Leotone Music)
Afro jazz house from the South African Leotone who is very active in recent times.  Check him out!

Gene Hunt - Planted Seeds (Inner Shift Music)
Gene Hunt really made a great come back in 2014, with plenty of twelve inches coming out on various different imprints. Inner Shift issues this different three track extended player which features two new tracks plus a fresh edit of Over which was issued in 2003 on Trackmode.

Steffi, Dexter - Warme Help (Dolly)
A very good three track extended player from Steffi and Dexter. Deep and raw is the word.
