Lil' Louis & The World - Club Lonely - Video

Lil Louis & The World - Club LonelyTime for another classic house music video. Lil' Louis & The World - Club Lonely released 1992 on Epic and licensed by FFRR in Europe. The amazing vocals are by Joi Cardwell (who later also sang for Towa Tei, Frankie Knuckles etc. and recently for Quentin Harris & Steal Vybe).

The intro of this song alone kills it everytime but if you hear the whole thing in the middle of a set you can't help but let loose on the dancefloor.

Thinking about it, I will definetely include this song in the classic house special for the upcoming 250th Deeper Shades of House show.
More info on the song can be found on


Juju & Jordash - Time Slip - Music Video

Juju & Jordash - Time Slip{xtypo_dropcap}J{/xtypo_dropcap}uju & Jordash are two very talented Deep House producers whose hometurf you'd expect to be Detroit rather than the Netherlands.
Their new 'Time Slip EP' is dropping soon on the british Real Soon label. This will be their second outing on this imprint after the Blue Plates EP. I've been bangin' (if you can call it that with tracks ranging from 101 to 108bpm) both tracks of this upcoming EP during the earlier parts of my sets and each time I hear them, they're sending me somewhere else.

Now they're doing what many more Deep House producers need to do - they've introduced a video for the title track of the EP, directed and edited by Finnish clip director Gnowp Ants.

Find out more about Juju & Jordash on their website and their MySpace profile.


Steve 'Silk' Hurley - "Jack Your Body" Video

Steve Silk Hurley - Jack Your Body{xtypo_dropcap}T{/xtypo_dropcap}his song and its video are mostly responsible for me getting into house music. In Germany and the UK "Jack Your Body" produced by Steve 'Silk' Hurley and originally released in 1986 on the 'DJ International' sublabel 'Underground' from Chicago actually made it in the charts and it was played all over the radio. The European major label which licensed this song put together a video using old jazz dance snippets and some cheap computer animation (back in the days actually pretty fresh). I remember seeing this video on many different TV stations.

To this day I drop this record from time to time and I see faces who know and I see faces who just think 'what's this jam?' As always, more info on the song can be found on

You can also hear two versions of this song in my Deeper Shades of House show #150 Classic House Special - 1st hour.


Ten City - That's The Way Love Is - House Music Classic / Video

Ten City - That's The Way Love IsChills.. everytime I hear this song. Make sure you check out the 12" with the Acieed Mix by Steve 'Silk' Hurley. That was the one mostly played in European clubs and that's the one I usually drop when I play this classic jam from 1989. Check out the full release info, credits etc. at Ten City - That's The Way Love Is - Atlantic Records 1989

please hit me up if you have a better quality version of this video. I gotta pull out my old VHS tapes and hope the sound's a bit more decent that the version above .. either way .. a must have in any House Music DJ's collection...

What you hear is Slope 'Keepingitup (Lars Behrenroth 'Subtle Koffee' Remix) - Sonar Kollektiv which was released on the Slope Remixed EP in October 2004. You can purchase a mp3 of the song from the Sonar Kollektiv website and online store.

Needless to say, I'm very proud to have my remix played at such a legendary party.


Shaun Escoffery - Days Like This (Live on MTV)

Shaun Escoffery - Days Like ThisLive version video of this amazing song performed on MTV (Europe is my guess??) by Shaun Escoffery and band. 'Days Like This' is one of the greatest tunes you can hear on a deep house floor when that magical moment is in the air. If you have been to any of the Shelter parties during the recent WMCs you know what I am talking about. A big scream and EVERYONE... starts singing along. DJ Spinna definitely worked his magic when he remixed it for Oyster Music in 2001.

Personally, I've become very selective when it comes to picking the right moment to drop this song in a club. It really has to be one of THOSE nights. And when it is, well :) above. 

This live version takes the song to another level (if possible). When I saw it on YouTube it put a huge smile on my face. Check out the video of the great performance by Shaun and his band below. Adrian from Oyster Music posted this and many other Shaun Escofferey videos. This link takes you to his YouTube profile where you can watch the other videos.

I really wish there's a full release of this live version coming sometime soon. Maybe even a whole live album.

Enjoy the video,
