Paris-based Brazilian chanteuse Salomé de Bahia came to the international dancefloor via Bob Sinclair, the hip French producer and head of the cosmopolitan Yellow Productions label. The spicy charm of Salomé de Bahia's feathered headdress and mile-wide smile comes through loud and clear on her second album, the vacation you can stick in your CD player that is Brasil. Seamlessly joined together with spoken word interludes and masterfully produced by Parisian hipster Bob Sinclair, the album incorporates a wide range of Brazilian flavors with a true disco attitude. This is dance music, and Brazil through the eyes of France, but it's organic if not authentic and electronica doesn't even enter the picture. Salomé herself is a brassy version of early Grace Jones with just a touch of Josephine Baker but hardly a hint of diva. Easygoing numbers like "Lanca Perfume" round out her character while her version of "Copacabana" yes, that "Copacabana" gives her a cheeky brush of camp that's entirely infectious. Most of the tunes here save "Brigitte Bardot," which is too bubbly for its own good are meaty, three of them coming from the songbook of Brazilian legend Jorge Ben. A full disco orchestra with sizeable chorus backs her up, keeping with the cabaret and revue upbringing that's the heart of de Bahia's style. Her Portuguese version of Stevie Wonder's "Another Star," "Outro Lugar," is the sparkling highlight, but "Taj Mahal," "Cada Vez," will all the keep the party alive. Brasil smiles at you, hands you a cold caipirinha, and winks at you with every twirl of its colorful skirt. The full lenght album was released in 2005 under Tommy Boy Label. Enjoy!

I'm not into the garage house that is being produced in the 00's but Fuzion has done such a great work in the past few years and this one is one of my fav!! Nicole's vocal is great unfortunately Fuzion did no other project with her.. I wonder why???? Released under Fuzion Records in 2005 with mixes from Soul Creation... later on a promo came out with mixes from Steve Stone and HUSH. Original & Hush mixes are my favorites! Hope you guys enjoy!! Beautiful(Original mix)
For the QUEENS ON DUTY!!! A "Masterpiece" of Progressive House. No wonder it was a huge hit back in 1998 when it was released under Progressive High records produced by Fernando Baez & Jack D Elliot with mixes from George B* and Saliva Commandos. Indeed one of the best runway tracks ever released! Can't choose the best mix they are all good! Enjoy and praise the QUEENS !!! :o) Octapussy(Main mix) Octapussy(Saliva Commandos Mix) Octapussy(Spit Drums Mix) ***tracks from this post will only be available for a few days.
Another great song by Maxine Inniss. Born in Trinidad & Tobago and raised in Boston where she attended to Boston Conservatory of Music and Boston University College moving a few months after graduation to NYC where her professional singer career began. "Standing Strong" was her second song released in 2005 under Fuzion Records 2 years after her smash hit "I Appreciate". I was able to post a bonus track called "bring the rain"AMAZING TRACK ! a promo where never really got itself a proper release. Hopefully in a near future we will see more mixes of it. Rumors says she is recording with Junior Vasquez although I have serious doubts about that. Standing Strong(Main Mix) Standing Strong(Fizion Peak Time Vocal) BONUS Bring the Rain(Original mix)
One of the best productions by Junior Vasquez in the 90's! Tri-City Singers is one of the greatest American Gospel Group comprised by 34 members from South Caroline state who received several Stellar Awards. "Testify" was released back in 2000 under Capital Records. A Must have track for all Gospel House addicted. Testify(Junior's Sunday Morning Club Mix) Testify(Junior's Padapella Mix)
Funny the pic taken for this single is not Miss Peniston but Saison(Ella Mae Saison) a Filipino singer who also duet with CeCe Peniston. Released under Holyfield's Real Deal Records & Orpheus Records back in 2001 with mixes from Matthias Heilbronn & Rick Pier O'Neal. It hit the spot thirthy on Billboard Hot Dance chart in August of the same year. "Reminiscin" is not CeCe's best work tough worth listen like everything else she records. For those who loves CeCe's glamours classic vocal the LP version is great. Enjoy! Reminiscin(RPO Vocal Mix) Reminiscin(Matty's Soulflower Mix) Reminiscin(Matty's II Deep Club Mix) Reminiscin(LP Version Mix)
One of the best album ever released having 6 tracks out of 11 got mixes. Produced by Mark Hadfield, Paul Taylor & Paul Waterman under Eastern Bloc Records back in 1995. Rachel McFarlane was the lead and back vocal for all tracks with Miriam Stockely, May Mckenna, Lance Ellington, Weston Foster & Yvonne Shelthon as back vocalists. In my opinion "if I only knew then what I know now" should have had mixes at that time. Soon I will be posting the "Album Remix" with all Loveland "full on vocal" mixes. Hope you guys enjoy! 1.The Wonder of Love 2.Let the Music(lift you up) 3.Don't make me Wait 4.All the Way 5. I need Somebody 6.If I only Knew Then waht I know Now 7.(Keep on)Shining 8.Stand Up 9.Shout it Out 10.Hope(never give up) 11.Let somebody love You The Wonder of Love.rar
One of Masters at Work masterpiece. Vocaling speaking Xaviera has no match! She shines throughout the whole track. Powerful diva vocal for those who appreciate high range vocal. Produced by Little Louis Vega under Esquire Records in 1992 back vocals by India & Lem Springsteen. Unfortunately no double pack for this one.... Certainly it would have been amazing!! Mixes are from Ken Lou, Mood II Swing & Frankie Knuckles. Enjoy! Gonna Get Back To You (Ken Lou 12") Gonna Get Back To You (Workin' It 12") **my software program expired since I use a trial version to clean tracks from vinyl noise pop scratch. Getting a new soft by the end of this week...Sorry guys.
The album is rich in funky beats and some catchy acoustic hooks. All fourteen tracks here are certainly aimed at the modern soul scene and a pleasure to listen to. Released under Digisoul label in 2006. Backing Vocals by Connie Harvey, Oliver Cheatham, Robbie Craig, Tammariah Lewis, Wendell Morrison. Enjoy !! http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PDY13D0J file in rar. 1.She'd Called 2.Buttaflies 3.Find Someone to Love 4.That's Just Me 5.Not Yet 6.It's You 7.Real Thing 8.Hay You Over There 9.Forever 10.Don't Make a Mistake 11.Sweet Fine Baby 12.Vacation Time 13.I Love You 14.I Will Wait For You
"It mus be Love" was Club Freaks first project released under 3 Record Lables: S3, Alabianca Records & UMM between 1995/96. Later they released in 1998 Looz Control once again with Miss Willliams as lead singer. Angel Williams has all the power to lift up any song she sings. Great vocal range. "It mus be Love" had mixes from Kamsutra, Mitchell Dupre, Alex Neri. Enjoy! It Must Be Love (Kama's Love Mix) It Must Be Love (Alex Neri Dub)
I love this album. Unfortunately her best song(IMO) "higher power" was never released as a single. Cajual Records did most of her releases back in the 90's including this album in 1994. Enjoy! Higher Power 1. Higher Power 2. Brighter Days 3. Is It All Over My Face 4. Fakes & Phonies 5. Love Don't Live Here Anymore 6. Day By Day 7. U Got Me Up 8. Sarah Lee 9. The Other Side 10.

Released under 95 North Records back in 1998 another great track with Mijan on vocals. Mixes from 95 North and R.I.P. Productions. Listening to Mrs. Mijan singing is a bless and you can't go no wrong with this one! Lovely tune!!! Enjoy! Save Your Soul (Vocal Mix) Save Your Soul (R.I.P Vocal Mix)
I remember getting this cd copy in Boston from a DJ friend of mine. At first, I could not believe, one of my greatest diva had released a new single!!!! Unfortunately, as far as I know this ISAdeva's last work in years. Released in 2004 as a Promo under Guidelines lable it was produced by Slippery People and backing vocal by Leroy Burgess. This single tracks: Radio Edit, Original Mix(my fav), ***Ski Oakenfull Remix(very disappointed mix I prefer his work with Incognito), Album Mix( good mix). Listen to Adeva's voice is a bless. Hope she comes with something new in a near future! Enjoy. Wish I Never Knew(Album mix) Wish I Never Knew(Original Mix)
One of SuSu's best performace !! It was first released under a few different lables back in 1998 Strictly Rhythm, FFRR & Airplane! Records with mixes from M.A.S. Collective, Jonathan Tedesco, Fun Kee Runners, The Beloved....... The 12" remix came along under Groovilicious in 1999 with mixes from Junior Vasquez and Mark Pichiotti . I miss the good old days when Mr. Vasquez used to do such great mixes.....Unfortunately nothing like that is being produced nowadays.
I add a bonus track from M.A.S. Collective mix one of my fav!!!
The 2000's (in my opinion) is not a fortunate decade for house garage music. Lots of "crap" was made by the music industry and no effort to come up with good music has surfaced yet....givin the benifit of the doubt a few tracks(like this) has conquer a spot in this dark era where Beyoncé's Gaga's Britney's are what the music industry can offer...Thanks God my ears are sealed for that kind of music. Released under Jellybean Soul in 2004 I was able to get a copy 4 days after its released. Produced by George Mena, Marlon Duque and co-written by Maxine. Maxine's vocals are lovely a truly diva indeed !! I Appreciate (Vocal mix) I Appreciate (Percapella Mix)
Carole Sylvan one of the most recognizable voices in house music, singer & songwriter team up with Filthy Rich under Kult Label back in 1998 to relased this nice pack of mixes. Castelli's mix in particular shines brightly with a soul filled Garage touch while Johan Brunkvist's vocal mix leads to a House side. Enjoy! Feeling Happy (Vocal Mix) Feeling Happy (Castelli & Takabayashi Vocal)
I have now passed my first year as a blogger and it has been such a great experience. This blog was born out of many requests that I got from friends who share the same taste in music. I'm glad to be able to bring back some good memories for those who lived in the 90's & early 00's when the truly house music was made. I would like to thank all the visitors, followers and "leechers" for all the support. My plan is to continue for one more year and see what happen. The thoughts about turning this blog into private still in my head..... Hope you guys enjoy what's being post. Have fun and feel free to request. Cheers Wagner
Another great release by GTS with Melodie Sexton on vocals. Actually she is the lead vocal for this project. Most singles or compilations ever released by GTS has her voice. She's such a great singer. A truly DIVA !
This time I can't pick one mix I like best. I love them all !!!
I would advise to you all that anything mixed by DJ Turbo is worth getting !!!
***TRACKS OF THIS POST WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR LIMITED TIME !!!
Released under Artimage Vinyls 1998 produced byDJ Turbo, Gee, Satoshi Hidaka.
One of my fav Gospel House track "In his Power". The twin producers Dino & Terry team up with Canadian singer/songwriter Alana Bridgewater to deliver a powerful tune.Tough it was not her first project with Dino & Terry Alana did vocal a year before(2002) for "Can You See My Soul".
"In his Power" was released in 2003 under Crash Records.
Today I woke up with this song banggin' on my head. After spent a few hours looking for it I finally found it hidden in a box where I used to keep my old laptop. Why it was there????? The answer did not cross my mind yet.
I was never really into Patti Austin's music.....as a matter of fact this is the only 12" I have from her. The DUB MIX is the best! Tough I'm not into Dubs this one is more like a dub-vocal mix.
Released under GRP lable in 1994 and Remixed by Hex Hector and I a friend of mine Darrin Friedman from Boston who spins at Avalon Night Club in Massachusetts.
