Face Love Anew

so good I had to get it twice @stereogamous feat. Shaun J Wright - Face Love Anew

I rarely buy vinyl these days but once in a while there comes a record that is so good I have to get it twice. This one is buy Australian gay gayness duo stereogamous feat. Shaun J Wright. The melancholic deep house song is carried by Shaun’s smooth yet determined vocals. Face Love Anew in XTC.

You might remember Shaun J Wright from the last Hercules & Love Affair album and his solo debut on Andy Butler’s MR INTL label called Forevermore. I had included a remix of Forevermore on one of my minimixes.

Favourite versions of Face Love Anew: the orginal, Jason Kendig and Horse Meat Disco Remix. Listen below.

Ten Toptions

  1. Hot Chip – Day & Night (Daphni Remix) – Domino Records
    To me, this is the only way to listen to Hot Chip. More breaks, less vocals and volle Pulle. Was released as a limited editin 12″ for record store day but is now also available digitally.
  2. Lana Del Rey – Blue Jeans (MK Dark Blue Dub)
    Like an old school 90ties MK mix, but better: the trade mark chopped up vocals are back with phatter beats. Marc Kinchen recently returned to house music (besides producing Pitbull) and I’m still in love with him. And not just the music. This is the best of the 3 remixes he did of Blue Jeans. You were sorta punk rock. You were sorta punk rock. You were sorta punk rock.
  3. Shalamar – Make That Move (AC Re-Edit)
    Recently found this re-edit of Shalamar’s disco classic. The full vocals only kick in at the 4 min mark. Until then the remixes rides on the feel good rhythm. LOVE IT. Free download.
  4. Jesse Perez – Dejen De Comer Tanta Pinga – Hot Creations
    Gets the dance floor going every time.
  5. The KDMS – Wonderman (Original) / Wonderman feat. Alexis Taylor (Justus Köhncke remix) – Gomma
    Kathy Diamond is the lead singer of duo KDMS, who just released their album ‘Kinky Dramas & Magic Stories‘. The current single is Wonderman Listen to the original version and the cover/remix with vocals by Alexis Taylor (of Hot Chip) remixed Justus Köhncke. BAM.
  6. Todd Terje – Inspector Norse – Olsen/Smalltown Supersound
    Nordic nu disco no brainer.
  7. Tornado Wallace – Insect Overlords – Delusions Of Grandeur
    Deep & dark.
  8. ArttuAttic House (Gerd’s Re-Arrange-Mix) – 4Lux
    Arttu – Nuclear Funk feat. Jerry The Cat – Clone Royal Oak
  9. Deichkind – Leider Geil (Solomun Remix) – Universal
    Das deutsche Haus.
  10. Usher – Climax (Poupon Edit)
    This is the pitched down vocals – sped up beats version. Although, I still can’t get enough on the original Climax.

Back To The But Better

As I haven’t done dj charts in awhile this is almost a very late best of 2011 house and disco list. Listen and download my new disco house mini mix, which includes song of the songs below. Track list on soundcloud.

  1. Prince Club – Love Jackson
    This is basically a four to the floor remix of Janet Jackson’s Someone To Call My Lover with sloooooowed down vocals. Also, check out the Club’s Sax Bomb.
  2. Solomun – Love Recycled 1 – 2DIY4
    Samples Michael McDonald’s “I Keep Forgetting” which was turned into the hip-hop hit “Regulate” by Warren G in the 90ties.
  3. SSION – Weird Yearz (das hussy remix)
    My dj bff hussy came up with the bubbling trance house version of the SSION hit.
  4. Storm Queen – It Goes On / Look Right Through (Jamie Jones Remix) – Environ
    Morgan Geist’s Storm Queen project has been on every bodies playlist last year. At the end of February MK will provide additional remixes in his classic 90ties chopped up vocal style.
  5. Daphni – Ahora – Amazing Sounds
    Art Department feat Soul Clap – We Call Love (Daphni Remix) – Crosstown Rebels
    Daphni is the house side of Caribou’s Dan Snaith. Ahora and the We Call Love remix are both very funky and trippy house workouts. Perfect for the dance floor. Crazy synths included.
  6. Lady Gaga – Marry The Night (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix) – Interscope
    Gets rid of almost all of Gaga’s vocals and turn Marry into a monster.
  7. Britney Spears – Toxic (Hrdvision Remix)
    Britney will never be more trance than this. Make sure to watch the video which is perfectly matched to the slowed down version.
  8. Shaun J Wright – Forevermore (Hazed Mix by Ha-Ze Factory) – Mr. INTL
    The bass line is so addictive for the dance floor. Paired with Hercules & Love Affair vocalist Shaun’s voice this is such a classic house treat.
  9. Max Essa – How Do You Feel (Kim Ann Foxman Remix) – NeedWant
    Mario Basanov – Lonely Days – NeedWant
    Coyote – Always (Neville Watson Remix) – NeedWant
    Just three of my favourite songs from the London based NeedWant label specializing in house / disco / tropical.
  10. Light Fires – 10 ft. Tall / If You’re Bored
    Regina The GentleLady is the front drag queen of the Light Fires. We had her perform at Hontuts many times and every time she brought the house down. Watch If You’re Bored on the tiny Hotnuts stage.
  11. Sylvester – Band of Gold (Gay Marvine Re-Edit) -Secret Mixes Fixes
  12. Omar S presents – Who Wrote The Rules of Love (Shadow Ray Remix) – FXHE

    Always fun to drop a German language song into a dj set.
  15. DJ Jus Ed – I’m Com’In (Levon Vincent Remix) – Underground Quality
  16. Tracey Thorn – You Are a Lover (Clock Opera Remix) – Strange Feeling
    Love the Klaviergeklimpere of the remix.

  18. Jessica 6 – White Horse (Populette Remix) – Peacefrog
  19. Paul McCartney – Coming Up (Justus Köhncke’s Extended Tribute)
    This will probably be the only PMC song that I’m into. Also love the video with lots of Paul’s.
  20. Hercules & Love Affair – Shelter -Moshi Moshi
    It’s a pity that this stunning house cover of The XX was not included on the H&LA album. Kim Ann Foxman’s voice sounds so fresh and clear. Was first released as the B-Side to the Painted Eyes single and later avaiable as  a bonus track to the American re-release of the album.
  21. Omar S – Solely Supported – FXHE Records
  22. Miguel Migs feat. Meshell Ndegeocello – Close Your Eyes (Deetron Remix) – OM Records
    Meshell’s smooth vocals over an acid house track. YES!
  23. Shirley Murdock – As We Lay (Pirahnahead’s Inside Out Mix)
    Enya – Orinoco Flow [Sail Away] (Pirahnahead Remix)
    If you’re looking for classic soulful house, these Pirahnahead remixes are the way to go.
  24. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Garden (Jesse Rose Remix) – Made To Play
  25. Eli Escobar feat. Nomi Ruiz – Desire – Plant Music
    Whether Nomi sings with Jessica 6 or on this one, I can’t resist her voice.
  26. Kyle Hall – Ghosten – Third Ear
    Melancholic house at it’s best.
  27. Manuel Tur feat. Holly Backler – Most of this Moment – Freerange Records
    We’re having Big Fun! Inner City says HI.
  28. Hrdvision – I Can’t Exist – Areal Records
  29. Toddla T feat. Roisin Murphy – Cherry Picking
    Still waiting on a new album from Ms. Murphy. This dubby song helped a bit. Was first released on red vinyl with a cut out cherry cover.
  30. Justus Köhncke – Fussmachine – Nang Records
  31. Pteradactil Disco – Big Ass Biscuit – Hot Creations
    Has a total Detroit Grand Pubahs vibe coming from the nasty lyrics and the four to the floor beat. It’s part of a minimix I did last April.
