Roman Rauch - Heliocentric (Mini LP, klamauk Records)


Mainz-based independent label klamauk records is not the busiest outfit on the House planet, but their rare releases definitely deserve some attention.

Case in point with German producer Roman Rauch mini-LP Heliocentric, a deep jazzy house record, smelling like a good old 90's Blaze-like production.

Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators - Where Are You Now Ep (Timmion records)

Alongside New-York (home of the Daptone Records crew & many affiliated artists), Finland has been establishing itself as another sure spot for high-quality old-school afro/soul/funk/jazz productions these last few years.

Producer/musician Jimi Tenor is of course one of the major reason behind this soulful nordic wave, as is the excellent Helsinki label Timmion Records.

His wife Nicole Willis is now back on the label with her band The Soul Investigators, for a couple of beautiful new singles, a promising teaser of their new LP, Happiness In Every Style, to be released next October.

Mac DeMarco - Let My Baby Stay (V4YS Rework)


Mac DeMarco is one of my favorite indie artist, I can't get enough of his inimitable laid-back indie/folk sound. 

Here is a slo-mo housy take of Let My Baby Stay I've been working on recently. The original song is part of his highly recommended 2014 LP Salad Days, which is included in our 2014 Favorites selection. 

Hope you'll enjoy it.
