The philosophy of “less is more” will help us to become better human beings by appreciating everything around us. One Instrument, One Musician. A stunning creation with a direct connection to emotional states present in human beings.

Osunlade – Everything In Its Right Place Feat. Erro

A song that is aggressively experimental that it thwarts any learned expectations. Radiohead’s original track is amazing but Osunlade and Eric added what my soul needs.

Vince Watson – Solitude

Language…has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘SOLITUDE’ to express the glory of being alone.

Maalem Hmida Boussou – Boulilaa

Gnaoua is a part of ancient and rich African heritage, which has been growing and prospering for centuries as a thriving music project in Morocco. Its secret also lies in its religious, spiritual dimension, which gives it a kind of therapeutic power.
In this track the poor african slaves sang their misery and daily worries.

Dennis Ferrer – How Do I Let Go

I was introduced to house music 15years ago. It has always been a spiritual thing but unfortunatly many people still don’t understand the depth of this music, and this is partly because they don’t know the difference between mature house and the huge raves populated by teenagers doing copious amounts of drugs with fuzzy boots and sucking on ring pops. “How Do I Let Go” A song from master Dennis Ferrer that gives you an uncontrollable desire to jack your body.

Cee ElAssaad & Thandi Draai – LoMhlaba (Connected) Cat No: Connected056

The Connected imprint continue its steady stream of quality with ‘LoMlaba’ by Cee ElAssaad & Thandi Draai, a slick afro house release presented, classically, in vocal, dub and instrumental forms. The pairing of Cee ElAssaad, a seasoned house DJ/Producer who has played alongside Louie Vega, Osunlade, Jerome Sydenham and many other legends as well as releasing for countless imprints, and Thandi Draai, a hugely gifted vocalist, producer and DJ who has graced productions by the likes of Charles Webster, Boddhi Satva and Culoe De Song, is an enticing prospect. The pair met by chance at ADE in Amsterdam, formed an instantly strong connection which lead to this long distance musical endeavour between the Moroccan producer and South African artist.
‘LoMhlaba’ is a gently building cut. Airy chords, kick/tom combos and a loose shaker sit atop warm, held bass notes while layered, looping vocal refrains build the track towards that all-too-rare a thing in modern house, a proper song complete with a heady, effortless and infectious voice driven crescendo. Clearly with one eye on creative DJs, the ‘Chants Dub’ and ‘Instrumental’ versions from ElAssaad and Draai will provide endless on-thefly moments for listeners too.
