The Cyclist - Hot House (Official Music Video)

When I first received the promo for this 6 track release by Irish producer The Cyclist, I wasn't sure if the track "Hot House" was meant to sound the way it does.
It comes with heavy background noise, a lot of distortion and a 'distant' feel. However, after I kept listening it became clear everything in this production happens on purpose. The 'technique' if you will, transported me into a time of oversaturated tape recordings of unforgettable underground parties and club nights.

Plus, I'm a sucker for dubby tunes. MUST LISTEN!

The Hot House EP is now available on 12" and digital download on the music/is/for/losers label.

Ralf Gum feat. Monique Bingham "The Pap" GOGO Music (Official Music Video)

Ralf Gum's newest album "In My City" went #1 in the South African iTunes store and the second single co-produced by Raw Artistic Soul and featuring Monique Bingham is now taking over the world. "The Pap" is currently charted by 73 DJs on Traxsource alone and I can't get enough of it. The simplicity of the instrumental with its sweet chords and hypnotic beat is perfectly completed by Monique Bingham's impeccable lyrics and vocal performance. The video is especially fun to watch since it's mostly filmed at DJ Christos' own Shaguma Cafe where I have spent quite some time since the beginning of my DJ travels to South Africa in 2010 plus I can spot quite a few cameos of friends and South African House Music royalty, like Christos, Dino Michaels, Themba, Zero, Matsobane, DJ Fresh, Just Mo and many more.

I am super happy for Ralf who is such a hard worker and good hearted person and proud to be friends with him for many years, going back all the way to Records Of Interest and Global House Connection times.
