Hot Rocks

Back once again with some vinyl recommendations:

Quentin Harris - The Episodes EP (Shelter Records) - fine slab of deep house, despite the 'hardcore' styling of the label logo

Antonio Ocasio - Forward (Wave) - many will buy it for the Francois K remix, however make sure that you also have a listen to the tribal winds roots mix on the flipside

Massive - Unfinished Sympathy (Wild Bunch/Circa) - yes I know that this is 13 years old, but Phonica have some repressings with the original, instrumental, and Paul Oakenfold remix/instrumental on it. The only one it misses is my favourite the Nellee Hooper club mix - if you want that mix get scouring eBay. (Factoid: Massive Attack renamed themselves on a temporary basis, during and immediately after Gulf War I when they heard on the news that "the attack was swift and massive" refering to the American-led assault on the Iraqi army of occupation. Bomb the Bass temporarily changed to their producer's name Tim Simenon. Copies of Massive Attack's Blue Lines CD still have Massive on the disc artwork and early copies with attack missing off the cover name are sought after collectors items)

Onionz & Greg Sankovich - The Magic of Music EP (Siesta) - I didn't know what to do my music project on in the third-year of secondary school, so did a few mini projects under the 'magic of music' project title, I got a good mark. Fortunately the same titled EP by Onionz is a whole lot better - more the 'west coast hippie sh!t' as my friend Freddy Garcia calls it. A solid slab of west coast house to put a shimmy in ya' game

Hashim - Al Naafysh (white label) - Single-sided bootleg mix of THE electro classic, making it more friendly to use in a house set without losing its phreshness. One to drop with care for extreme dancefloor impact

Soha - Seas and Sirens (Poussez) - deep acid house from France, almost as moving as Fingers Inc. - Washing Machine, way back, back in the day. Amazing and quite hard to get hold of
