Fresh off of a world tour as lead drummer with British soul singer Alice Russell, Giom also continues to rise in prestige as one of the elite traveling DJs on the global club circuit. Red Light reveals why he has built such a dedicated and passionate fan base for his original music; crisp percussion, organic chords, original vocals and the trademark Giom bassline all combine to provide pure sonic bliss.

We have also secured the talents of newcomer Deep Active Sound (Loco, DeepClass, UM) to provide additional flavor to the package and this Russian-based producer wades into bouncy and warm Deep House territory with his remix. One to watch in 2014!

7. Jersey Maestros feat Cynthia Elise Cooper Powell – Call On Me (Quantize Recordings)

Quantize Recordings joyfully presents The Jersey Maestros Featuring Cynthia Elise Cooper Powell ‘Call On Me‘€. This package is funky, bouncing, and full of soul and movement. Not newcomers to the soulful house scene, this New Jersey duo (Pup Donald Bolding & Dj Edd Boom) always deliver inspirational songs with messages that have been effective on dance floors for years, and this is no exception. This release features the funky and smooth vocals of Cynthia Elise Cooper Powell who sings a song of love and devotion with the soulful house styling of the Jersey Mastros with horns, moving bass line and string and organ. DJ Spen and Gary Hudge add a different “spen” to the mix. Their mix has many of the elements Gary Hudgins is known for beautifully added to Cynthia’s song. It bounces along withQTZ flair. Then, there is the DJ Spen Sublevel mix that is a little more stripped and moves like a vocal dub with added percussion. Add in Spen & Gary’s Praise Party mix that re-interprets the song and gives it a gospel house edge that peaks any soulful dance floor. You can ‘€œCall On Me‘€, everything you want, everything you need.. Enjoy!

This hot new release comes from Birmingham producer Collabor8 in the form of a bumping house and garage selection entitled the Work This Out EP

9. Jose Burgos feat Kenny Bobien – For Your Love (Soul Heaven Records)

US producer Jose Burgos has been a massive name in house music for the best part of two decades, with releases on the likes of Salt Shaker Records, NRK & Deep Vision. His past collaborations include some of the genres most renowned artists including house stalwart Sandy Rivera and legendary vocalist Kenny Bobien, and shows no loss of integrity as his quality production output continues into this year with plenty more promised of his signature soul sound. Reunited once again with the powerfully soulful voice of Kenny Bobien, ‘For Your Love’ epitomises Burgos’ inimitable upbeat and organic sound as he includes an eclectic array of percussion, brass and guitar. South African artist Cuebur takes on the remix duties where he adds his own distinct flavour to the cut using a fuzzy hook, raw sounding percussion and warm atmospherics whilst Bobien’s vocals are altered to provide an overall gentler sentiment.

10. City Soul Project – CSR002 (City Soul Recordings)

City Soul Project return to their very own imprint with this very special three track EP tailored for the Miami WMC.

11. Casio Social Club – Retromental (Mullet Records)

A new year, a new album, as ‘Justin Winks’ aka ‘Casio Social Club’ rolls out his second album in recent times. Many may have thought that following up last years ‘Life in 3D’ album would’ve been an uphill task, but Mr Winks was very quick to fire up the machines and ‘the difficult second album’ seemed to naturally flow without a hitch.

So, what’s ‘Retromental’ all about? In short, a twelve track Nu-Disco album aimed more for the dancefloor, but still awash with all those juicy trademark vintage CSC sounds.

The opening track, ‘Justin Illusion’, a clever rendition of Imaginations’ ’82 hit packs a proper retro punch, whilst ‘Love Glove’ and ‘Try Me’ rock some serious Euro-Boogie appeal. ‘Let’s Do It’ and ‘Feels Right’ on the other hand go all vocoder Electro and encompass some serious acid wiggle action too.

‘Bass Face’, ‘Reach Up’ and ‘Rock the Discotheque’ are true crowd pleasers, with everything but the kitchen sink thrown in… but they work a treat and have become staple joints in recent ‘Casio Social Club’ dj sets. ‘Little Luv’ on the other hand is all about 80s feel-good bells & chimes and will surely please any retro nut-nut!

Rounding things off we have the title track ‘Retromental’ and the heart wrenching ‘Heavy Petting’, that show off CSCs softer side of 80s Soul accompanied by plenty of Fairlight synth goodness.

So there you have it ‘Casio Social Club – Retromental’. A Nu-Disco album for all retro mentalists… sounds great to us!

12. Various Artists – Basement Workout EP (Fifty Fathoms Deep)

The third installment from fifty fathoms deep sees steffen baldo aka ugly drums dropping four brand new cuts. fresh from the release of his fantastic new album saturn memories on quintessentials, here he offers four sublime trademark tracks all encompassing the inventive, charisma soaked vibes from what we all now expect from the cologne based producer.
