Linda Newman “Real Love” (Soneec Remix), Alex Ander & Deep Grounder feat. Virag “Tonight,” and Ananda Project “Falling For You” (G-Pal’s New York Vocal Mix) make the heart grow somber. More aggressive tracks like Rui Da Silva’s Mix of Ananda Project feat. Nicola Hitchcock “Can You Find The Heart,” Alex Kenji’s mix of Malena “Amame,” Noferini & Marini’s mix of “This Luv Is Real” by Jamico feat. Jackie Cohen, show the darker side of love on the dance floor. Eighteen tracks in all fit according to the many tempers of Love & Music.

Part of the beloved Sole Channel music camp, spearheaded by the renowned Mr. V, West Coast House producer William “Reelsoul” Rodriguez has already seen a fair share of remixes for us at King Street. From Kimara Lovelace’s “How Much I Love You,” to Urban Soul’s “Love Is So Nice” to Ananda Project’s “A Second,” to jams like Stephanie Cooke’s “It’s Like Nothing,” and Cookie Monsters ft Michelle Weeks’ “Spread Love” and more, his mixes have all hit the global soulful dance floors with great appeal. He now brings some of his sweet flavor to the East Coast with his first full length mixed comp. Now fifth in line following past compilers Frankie Feliciano, Hector Romero, Groove Assassin and Sean McCabe, Reelsoul seamlessly blends over 2 dozen cuts to bring you the latest installment of Soulful House Journey. On it you’ll hear the above-mentioned Bonus Cuts and deep-in-the-well tunes like Groove Box’s “The More You Want,” Mood II Swing feat. Carol Sylvan “Closer,” LY’s “Back 2 Zanzibar,” and Kimara Lovelace’s “Misery,” to the more recent Prosix’s “My Deep Dream,”Yass & Fabio Aurea’s “Popovka Morning,” Sydney & Lukez’s “The Only Thing We Are” and others. He caresses the hearing with melodic peaks and rhythmic valleys far and near on this deep and soulful 80 minute journey. Of course it wouldn’t be a King St comp if it didnt include a track by Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Blaze & Joi Cardwell, or Studio Apt ft Monique Bingham, but he does his due soulful diligence to include them all here. Mr Reelsoul weaves all of these eras and styles into his rich musical tapestry with ease, keeping an even flow and a beautiful energy throughout.

Dj Spen remixes brings the afro centered rhythms and drums to the forefront and bounces in a direction he is known for with several mixes that enhances the work that the song already has intricately woven. Silvia Zaragoza new remixes drive with the passion only the original producer of the track knows how to do with flair and artistic redevelopment. It layers synths, keys and drums to take the original to a new level, first with a vocal mix, then with an exciting dub. To add to this remix package is a driving Ian Friday Libation Remix.

The Bargrooves year would not be complete without our annual trip to the slopes. â Bargrooves Apres Ski 3.0â is the perfect place to kick off the New Year with a stylish mix of upfront house sounds as heard on the more discerning dancefloors and in the finer aprÃšs ski lounges around Bargroovesâ favourite mountaintop destinations.
Containing two bonus mixes from Bargrooves A&R, master compiler and veteran of vertiginous clubland, Andy Daniell, this edition is an album of distinct halves. The first mix suits a pacier descent or a full throttle venture onto the dancefloor whilst the second side provides the soundtrack to a mellower ride or a more soulful backdrop to loungier post piste activities.
Big driving basslines for big air dominate the first mix. Route 94 enjoyed a breakthrough year in 2013 and here we include two of his productions; first up is his remix of MKâs 1992 classic âAlwaysâ, a huge floor filler so far this Winter, which is followed by a compilation exclusive, âWalls Come Tumbling Downâ. The unmistakable influence of one Ben Westbeech reaches across the album with his latest Breach hit, âEverything You Never Hadâ whilst his vocal features on the Jazzanova track âI Can Seeâ. Right now, however, there is perhaps no bigger bassline than the debut from GotSome featuring The Get Along Gang. âBasslineâ has been building up a real head of steam across the club charts and is due its full commercial release this spring.
A thread of quality soulful voices runs throughout the deeper sounds of the second mix. From the word go, Camo & Krookedâs âLoving You Is Easyâ joins hooky strings and big piano chords to a classic soul vocal, whilst âHolding Onâ from James Fox features the intimate voice of Vanity Jay. With a career track record that demonstrates his various different talents, DonaeâOâs knowledge and experience of both house and RânâB make him the ideal cohort to produce fellow RânâB singer/songwriter Terri Walker on her track âHe Loves Meâ. Further highlights includes a pair of DFTD label tracks; J.Cub delivers a thunderous deep houser set off by the perfectly paced vocal of Sarah Story, whilst Berlin producer Aaaronâs well-rounded roller âFeelin Thisâ picks matters up a little with its heavy snares before slowly introducing a distorted looping vocal that never fails to get people moving.
As the Ski Season gathers pace, Bargrooves AprÃšs Ski 3.0 is the ultimate soundtrack to any discerning clubberâs winter holiday.
