What the hell is this stuff???

I have been finding me as much Cassy, Miss Fitz, Mara Trax stuff as possible of late. Its all super deep jackin house in the style of early Chicago house as in it uses an 808 and not a hell of a lot else. I can’t get enough presently!

May I recommend these readers:

Miss Fitz – Drifting on

Cassy – April

Mara Trax – Let Goose

Miss Fitz – Colici (Sascha Dive’s dark beat mix)


Also can’t go too far with out mentioning the beaut Afefe Iku mix of Ruff Way – Rhythm & Sound (Afefe Iku remix)


immediately figured, `Why would ya bother that old dog? It is pretty much perfect how it is but, as usual, me wuz wrong…..

The Ame Fabric is a very good listen too, which has come to be expected from these guys. I still barely go a month with out feeling the urge to re-run either Dessous Skin is In or Ame Mixing

Top drawer gear there.

Oh and heres Petre Inspirescu/Pedro smashing it in Romania

    Find me photo or gig of Afefe Iku and I might start believing he is not Osunlade.

    I’m always surprised you don’t rate Melchior productions more as he seems to me to come very close to what these ladies are doing. Listening to his ‘searching’ 12″ again now actually, it is ace!

    Anyhow I do dig on this stuff, but I have to be in the right mood, it is a fine line between spacious deep grooves and, well, being a bit boring and featureless.
