On heavy rotation
Not really on rotation at the moment as the decks and set up is in disarray until the last of the shelving goes into the garage / utility room. Many of my recent purchases have been stocking up on old gaps in my collection and getting fresh pressings of old favourites.
Westbam and Nena - Old School Baby (Low Spirit) - German legend DJ Westbam had this track featured on a Fabric mix album and the reviews went ballistic. It isn't bleeding edge stuff, but it hits the spot
Martinez - Shadowboxing (Automatique) - The kind of quality deep house you would expect from an artist that has had their records released in the past on Guidance
Jordan Fields - Re-edit series (Loft 66) - Quality re-edit EP with something for everyone on the 12
Sistema - colores en capsules EP - (Factor City) - Spanish house music that is good enough to take on the best of the US.
mr bfennd - rock the roses (white label) - Outkast vocal over The Clash. Works really well
The Fort Knox Five - Radio Free DC (Fort Knox) - The A-Skillz and Krafty Kuts mix is what it is
Various - Summer 2005 sampler (Brique Rouge) - Buy it for the Alexkid track Flute which will not be released
Henrik Schwartz - Jeff (Zepplin) - German deep house, interesting JuJu Christian track on the flip
Del Costa & Pedro Goya - 37 (Classic) - Percussive house cracker, very 80's sleeve though
DJ Pierre - This is house (Essence) - talking house record, builds and rocks nicely
Simon Nedeczky - Tribal Sunshine (white label) - single sided percussive house track, very Ibiza
DJ Vitamin D - That Latin Track (Estereo) - Balaerics in the house
Jerry Ropero & Denis the Menace feat. Jaqueline - Coracao (Nero) - Get it for the Axwell mix
Francois K - Mindspeak remixes (Wave) - Its similarity to Jamie Principle's Baby Wants to Ride hooked me in
