Spring Outside My Window

New season – new charts.

Let me start with my favourite album for spring:
Kathy Diamond – Miss Diamond to You – Permanent Vacation
I first heard about Kathy Diamond through Rich. I thought: Finally, this is a Maurice Fulton production I can enjoy. Too bad that her myspace has one song only. You can preview all songs at juno. For more on Kathy, read this Village Voice review.

  1. Simbad – Supersonic Revelation (Marathon Men Remix) / Soul Fever (Karizma’s K2 Stomp Mix) – Raw Fusion Records (check their jukebox)
    Double A side 12 inch deep house. Can’t decide which one is better.
  2. Aaron-Carl – Sky (Osunlade Yoruba Soul Vocal Mix)Superb
    Over the last year there have been a couple of remixes of this song. The recently released Osunlade mix is by far the best and deepest.
  3. DJ Spen & The MuthaFunkaz feat. Ann Nesby – It’s So Easy (MuthaFunkaz 12″ Vocal) – Code Red Recordings
    The former lead vocalist of the Sounds of Blackness belts it out on this one. The ‘4 The Love Mix’ is kind of a new turn on ‘4 The Love of House’ with spoken lyrics by DJ Spen.
  4. Beck – Cellphone’s Dead (Villalobos Entlebuch Rmx) – Interscope
    I’ve mumbled about this one before.
  5. Hercules and Love Affair – Athene – DFA
    Soon to be released hit on DFA.
  6. Justus Köhncke – Elan (Prins Thomas Versjon) – Kompakt
    Wonderful new version of the 2005 release featuring a live string section.
  7. Ruede Hagelstein – Yes, We’re Late – Freundinnen
    Includes the cut up Benjamin remix of Sweaty Balls.
  8. Jay-J feat. Charlene Moore – With Him (Ron Carroll’s BMC Black Gospel Feel Edit) – Defected
    Achtung: This is gospel house (who would have guessed).
  9. Hardsoul – My Life (Ron Carroll’s BMC 90’s Vocal Classical Mix) feat. Ron Carroll – Hardsoul
  10. Dajae & Bernard Badie – Tonight (Main Mix) – Tony Records
    The song is available for listening on Dajae’s myspace since last year, it got a short promotional release on traxsource earlier this year and I hope it’s available on vinyl soon.
  11. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – Lil L.O.V.E. feat. Mariah Carey – Interscope
    While we wait for the new Mariah album we can enjoy this slow banger. I always love her collaborations with Bone Thugs, after Breakdown and the remix of Don’t Forget About Us, this is the third one.
  12. Nelly Furtado – Say It Right (Dummies Remix) – Geffen
    When people ask me if I really like Nelly, I tell them: I’m not living in Toronto’s Portuguese neighborhood for nothing, right? The house-with-a-bit-of-electro mix is easy to find. Google it. Please.
  13. Junior Boys – In The Morning (Hot Chip Remix) – Domino
  14. DJ Le Roi feat. Roland Clark – I Get Deep (Original Mix) – Deeptown Music

Last but not least, here are a few old school classics I recently bought at Easy Street Records:
Storm – Love…Sexy (Blaze Vocal)
Truce – It’s Alright (Cassmaster Mix & Cassio’s Fever Mix)

    Are you a Mariah fan? I think I fell a little bit more in love with you!

    Woooo, the Osunlade mix of Sky was made for car rides. Let the mirrors pump.
