My Way EP – Michele Chiavarini

Michele Chiavarini (pronounced key-ava-ree-knee) is a rare breed of producer, accomplished in so many musical fields that every production oozes quality and it is easy to see why. Michele has been creating music for over twenty years, he plays numerous instruments including bass, violin, trumpet and vibraphone, and he is classically trained in piano and guitar. His keys have graced many a production and he has deservedly become the favourite keyboard player of numerous UK producers. He is also a songwriter, arranger, composer, remixer, sound designer and session musician, and because of his multitalented approach, there is nothing synthetic about any of Michele’s creations – he plays all of the instruments and strives for absolute perfection in every release. He has written music for TV and film, worked with Ennio Morricone, and won several awards for his work. He established Nova Fronteira in 2002 and wrote and produced the Full Fronteira EP as well as many other releases including the awesome cover of Everybody Loves The Sunshine. In 2014 he had major success with the House classic Let Me See You (Clap Your Hands) and has gone on to release several club favourites including Naomi’s Song, Get On Out There, Staring At The Sun, Tenderness, Something About Your Love…the list goes on and on. This man has worked with everybody in the business and is possibly one of the most respected artists out there. A native Italian, he now lives in England and has been adopted as an honorary Englishman by everybody who knows him – humble, respectful, kind and with a keen sense of humour, Michele is one of those amazing people with a heart of gold and is a pleasure to know.

The My Way EP is a collection of 6 versions of Doing Things My Way which features Cinnamon Brown on vocals, plus Gifted featuring Dana Weaver. Remixers on this EP include DJ Spen, Reelsoul and Namy. The package is released on DJ Spen’s Quantize Recordings, a label that is synonymous with excellence in Soulful House production, showcasing the very best that the dance music scene has to offer.

Cinnamon Brown hails from New York where she began singing in the Harlem Girls Choir and trained at the Fiorello H La Guardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Classically trained in musical composition, she is a lover of primarily Soulful House, RnB, Gospel and Jazz. She has worked with many respected artists on the dance music scene including Josh Milan, Alex Millet, Mark Stone, Benji Candelero, Giulio Bonaccio, and Federico d’Alessio to name a few.

Dana Weaver is from Baltimore and was recognised as a gifted musician at the age of four when her parents noticed that she could play piano by ear. She went on to become a classically trained pianist, a talented singer, composer, and choir director. She has worked with many quality dance music artists including the late Vesta Williams, Neal Conway (founder Basement Boys member), DJ Spen, Thommy Davis, and Montana & Stewart.

Doing Things My Way is a big bold song, and showcases Michele’s trademark fusion of old and new where he hints at old school jazz funk and disco vibes, with an overall classic orchestral sound, expertly constructed. Cinnamon Brown’s powerful and controlled vocals resonate through the track making this a glorious dance floor future classic. House Music royalty, Baltimore’s DJ Spen  and Californian wonder Will Reelsoul Rodriquez add three remixes to the package including a Hump Mix and a Str8 Rockin’ Xtra. The Spen and Reelsoul remixes are subtle variations on a classic thumping  House version which features cleverly placed keys  and a pulsating bassline that will have the dancers up and bustin moves from the outset. Japanese producer Namy (Yutaka Takanami) pleases the dancers further with a bouncy funky disco vibe that has hints of Nile Rodgers style guitar and a captivating vocal arrangement .

Written by Jill Scott, Gifted is a deeper and more subtle track graced with Dana Weaver’s beautiful vocals. The mesmerising bassline and mystic keys seduce the listener with their exquisite sensual vibe, making this track a nice bonus and a sweet complement to the bold vibrancy of the rest of the EP.

The My Way EP is a stunning collection of music for the feet and the soul. It has deepness, disco, jazz and a shining aura that will thrill and enchant the audience. Certainly one of the best releases of the year, and one that will be remembered for many years to come.

Mask Off – Rhemi, HanLei, Lifford

Mask Off – Rhemi, HanLei, Lifford

Rhemi is the talented production duo of Neil Pierce and Ziggy Funk. Before Rhemi was formed, Ziggy had success with releases including Everyday and What You Afraid Of with Taliwa, and Neil formed part of Fanatix who produced hits including Happiness with Heather Johnson and Call On Me with Sara Devine and Sterling Ensemble. Both are accomplished DJs and when they got together in 2013 they formed an innovative and pioneering partnership that took London by storm. Rhemi have drawn upon all of their influences and teamed up with some of the best artists in the business to produce hit after hit including Let Me Be with Nicole Mitchell, Diamond with HanLei, Warning with Lynn Lockamy,  Beat Within with Cassius Henry, and Everything Is Good with Carmichael MusicLover. The quality and passion for their craft shines through in every release.

HanLei is a singing and songwriting collaboration between lifelong friends and vocalists Hannah Khemoh and Aleysha (Lei) Gordon. They have performed in worldwide locations including Russia, the USA and Croatia, and have shared a stage with the likes of Don E, Omar and Mica Paris. The girls have collaborated with Rhemi before on Diamond – one of the most successful tracks of 2015, and more recently with the vibrant Keep Dancing.

Lifford came to the fore in 2000 with Artful Dodger singing Please Don’t Turn Me On and since then has carved out a successful solo career, collaborating with several producers on the dance music scene. He is versatile and hard-working, having the ability to grace any genre with his silky and impassioned vocals, and his voice has a rare quality that makes it instantly identifiable as belonging to Lifford.

The lyrics tell the story of a couple who want to fall in love but are finding it difficult to state their feelings honestly for fear of exposing their emotional vulnerability, hence the need to ‘take the mask off’. Lifford, Hannah and Aleysha deliver the vocals with an intensity that places the listener right there in the middle of the scene, watching the analysis of the relationship unfold. All three singers are masters of their craft, giving a solid and credible performance.

The Rhemi Main Mix has the trademark Rhemi four to the floor beat which will have everybody’s feet tapping from the opening bars. The exhilarating pace is complemented by a sublime grand piano, luscious keys and subtle notes of excellence that captivate the audience throughout.  Rhemi are famous for producing great dubs and the Rhemi Vox Dub is no exception with its more laid back feel, gorgeous keys, and aura of gentle mystery. Thailand’s Q Narongwate provides an alternative dub which has a carefree vibe and a warmth that feels like a summer day in paradise. DJ Q is Phuket’s most exciting House DJ, and it is testament to his skill that Rhemi have invited him to be part of this release.

Every Rhemi release is a winner, but this one in particular has a special something that will make it one of the seminal sounds of the summer of 2016. The skilful production where Neil and Ziggy have perfectly placed every note, every sound, every beat coupled with the vocals of three amazing singers, gives Mask Off a wow factor that makes it pure sweet candy for the ears and the feet.

RHEMI027 – Mask Off – Rhemi, HanLei, Lifford  – due for release on June 10th 2016.

Somethin Wit Jazz (Ten Year Anniversary Remixes) – Mr V

Mr V is a Nuyorican producer, DJ and vocalist who lives every day with dance music in his heart and soul. Growing up in New York, and heavily influenced by genres such as Hip Hop, House, Latin, Garage, Rhythm and Blues, Jazz and Disco he immersed himself in the nightlife, and soon joined Louie Vega as an assistant at the world renowned Masters At Work label. Since then he has gone on to produce several hundred tracks, create his own label, and is in hot demand as a DJ, remixer and vocalist. When Mr V is on the decks he takes the audience through a wonderful journey of dance and rhythm, and has the rare gift of giving the dancer a sensory and physical experience with the magical sets that he creates.

Somethin Wit Jazz was first released in 2005 as part of the Dance Ritual Project on the Sole Channel label , and subsequently appeared on Mr V’s Welcome Home album as well as the Bargrooves Bar Anthems album. The original version features a mesmerising and minimal jazzy vibe. Mr V’s signature rhythmic rap-style vocals are confident, uplifting and intimate, encouraging the dancers to move their bodies and shake their booty. Anybody who has felt intoxicated by the vibes of a special tune will identify with the lyrics which are all about the joy of dancing and becoming one with the music.

The ten year anniversary remix package includes remixes from Man Without A Clue Jay Kutz and Reelsoul.

Dutch producer Man Without A Clue (real name – Alex van Der Meijden) has more than a decade’s experience in the music business and has previously worked with the likes of Roger Sanchez and Kenny Dope. His remix complements the original with a heavier tech feel that is deeply hypnotic but still retains the four to the floor pulse of the track.

Jay Kutz (Jason Peralta) hails from New Jersey and focuses on quality House productions but also has an affinity with 90’s Hip Hop, Melodic Trap, and RnB. Another variation on the traditional House backbeat, his version exhibits hints of film noir eeriness and deepness which give it a late night atmospheric vibe.

Talented Californian producer Reelsoul (Will Rodriquez) has been making waves worldwide since he started creating quality cuts back in the 90’s. Will’s 2016 rework is pacey, upbeat and bouncy, giving us a clever fusion of soulful jazz that has a carefree vibe running throughout. The brass elements are highlighted and there are touches of humour interlaced into the warmth of the track. Will also provides a keyapella and instrumental version.

This release of Somethin Wit Jazz is has a flavour to suit every mindset and will embrace every dancer on the floor, creating feelings and memories that will continue long after the music has ended.

Turn You Up – Kenny Dope presents Lee Wilson

Brooklyn man and 4 time Grammy nominee Kenny Dope Gonzalez is one of the biggest names in House Music, having initiated the Masters At Work brand in the early 1980’s. He has worked with just about everybody in the business and is most famously associated with Louie Vega, collaborating on the seminal Nuyorican Soul album in 1993, and wowing crowds with their DJ sets at world famous venues like Southport Weekender, 51st State, Suncebeat, Groove Odyssey, Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, ADE, Chosen Few, and Pure Pacha to name a few. Kenny is known as a production trailblazer, having set the standard for many others with his syncopated beat style, and he has achieved worldwide fame with releases such as The Bomb (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind) (under the alias of The Bucketheads). He founded the Kay Dee and Dope Wax labels and is currently one of the most hard working and prolific remixers, producers and DJs on the circuit.

Lee Wilson  is a versatile singer and songwriter from Boston who has a rich and soulful voice that effortlessly crosses genre boundaries. He has spent a lot of time in Puerto Rico absorbing the lifestyle and culture as well as independently releasing four albums, opening for John Legend, and achieving success with his R&B, Reggaeton, Pop, and Latin sounds. Lee is a man who is always up for a challenge, not one who follows the crowd, and not somebody who can be easily categorised. Concentrating on what feels right musically, Lee continues to go from strength to strength and is a name to be watched.

The Dope Wax Label founded in 2004 is Kenny’s label showcasing his own work as well as a variety of House artists and musical styles.

The lyrics of Turn You Up are about the pure joy of being at one with the music in the room. “Give me music, let it use me, fill me up till I’m complete”. Lee perfectly expresses the feelings that every dancer and music lover has when listening to a song that resonates through to their very soul, intoxicating them with the beat.

Fellow Brooklyn legend Todd Terry teams up with Kenny on three of the remixes. The first remix has Kenny and Todd’s signature all over it with a broken feel and big full-on House sound.  The O’Gutta Dub takes us on an atmospheric futuristic journey with its hypnotic and spaced out vibe while The Brooklyn Bridge Dubb has a mysterious and intense leftfield feel while retaining an underlying jacking beat.

Kelvin Sylvester brings us the remix that is the pick of the bunch. The quality of his smooth production is evident in this warm, soulful and harmonic version. Perfect subtle touches and effects give the track a certain something that will appeal to every listener. Kelvin’s mix fully embraces Lee’s passion for the music that is his lifeblood, bringing out the best in his superb vocals, while retaining the four to the floor beat that will make this remix a dance floor classic.

Turn You Up – a song that everybody who loves music can identify with – the love is transported through every note by Lee and the uber talented team of producers who have contributed to this masterpiece.

Help Me – Beat Rivals, Lifford

helpme

Help Me – Beat Rivals, Lifford

Formerly mentored by Karl ‘TuffEnuff’ Brown, Beat Rivals are a hard working and inventive production duo from London. KrazyK and Soulshy came up with the name Beat Rivals due to their tendency to create individual interpretations of their work as well as collaborative releases, and this friendly competitive approach to their productions results in numerous contrasting and complementary elements to every release package.
Beat Rivals have previously worked with Lifford on ‘(Gotta Be) Free’ and ‘If I Could’, and have collaborated with several polished performers including Xavier, Flexie Muiso, Natasha Watts, and Tony Lindsay.

Lifford shot to fame when he featured on Artful Dodger’s ‘It’s all about the Stragglers’ album in 2000, as the vocalist on two tracks – ‘Something’ and the top ten hit ‘Please Don’t Turn Me On’.  Since then he has released and written songs covering a variety of genres which makes him one of the most versatile performers on the circuit. He has worked with Rhemi, The Checkup, Wipe The Needle, Circle of Funk, Mark Radford, Luciano Giola, Teebone, Glenn Gregory, Matt Jam Lamont, and Brian Keys Tharme to name a few. One of the most in-demand artists in London, Lifford regularly performs live as part of a group and a duo, entertaining crowds throughout the UK.

Help Me is the fifteenth release on the Rival Beat Label, a label which promotes quality House music for a range of talented artists.

The lyrics of Help Me are about reaching out for assistance when you need it, and the importance of physical and emotional support from your friends and family. Lifford’s lyrics are generally based on experiences which are very personal to him, and he has previously spoken of a long term battle with depression. His rich and honey-toned voice delivers the vocals with passion and poignancy, making this a song which will resonate with anybody who has travelled a lost and lonely path only to find comfort in warm and loving friendships.

Beat Rivals fine production has a classic jazz-funk feel, with its jazz piano and laid back bass, reminiscent of an early eighties Shakatak vibe. Adding even more quality to this wonderful release, additional keys are provided by classically trained UK pianist Brian ‘Keys’ Tharme, with accomplished Masters At Work musician Gene Perez on bass guitar. Help Me is a track that will bring joy to the ears with its easy-going, smooth, mellow sound, and joy to the heart as it reminds us to freely offer our love and support to those who need it.

For The Love Of Owen Money

FB_IMG_1458963618580

The world lost a great man on Good Friday. Owen Money – 8 months after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, passed away in his home surrounded by the friends who loved and supported him.

I first became aware of Owen approx 3-4 years ago. He was part of the Nyumba Deep crew performing Deep House gigs and radio shows, and a mainstay of the London House music scene. Whenever I went back to London (almost annually) and took the opportunity to go out clubbing, Owen (aka Snakehips) would be there with his camera, taking photos of everybody having a good time. He had a smile that lit up the room and he knew how to bring out the best in people.

I got to know more about Owen through social media – he once asked for help with deactivating an old Facebook account, but he couldn’t remember the password. I helped him with this, not hacking it exactly, but giving him the clues that he needed to enable him to log in and do the necessary, and he was very grateful. We both liked our food and would show mutual appreciation for food pics, and this became much more emphasized in more recent times when we shared vegan recipes and ideas.

When Owen was diagnosed, it was a terrible shock to him and everybody who knew him – a very serious situation. He had a tumour in one lung, a blood clot in the other, and tumours in his shoulder and neck. He had gone to the doctor with a sore shoulder, and come back with a death sentence. Very early on he decided to go public with his journey – telling us all the story of every stage on Facebook. He definitely didn’t want chemotherapy – he felt that it would poison his body and he wanted to try an alternative approach. Arming himself with as much information about natural treatments as possible, he went vegetarian almost straight away – dairy free, sugar free, gluten free, meat free. He read that these ingredients were likely to feed cancer and he wanted to starve his tumours so that they would stop growing and reduce. He also aimed for an alkaline diet and decided that he would love to visit Dr Sebi in the Honduras for an assessment and the best natural herbal treatment in the world. The thing is, a trip to the Honduras doesn’t come cheap, and Owen needed help to make this a reality.

Mark Hyman (Sparky) came up with the idea of organising a benefit night (For The Love Of Money or FTLOM) and Lloyd Allen (Lloyd Life) secured the Qube Project venue for free. The date of September 18th 2015 was set and everybody got to work organising the event. Owen himself took charge of the DJ organisation. So many DJs wanted to help – there were 3 different rooms organised with a total of around 50 DJs like Rhemi, Phil Asher, Martin Lodge, Booker T, Clemy Riley, Peter Borg, Ricky Morrison, Amethyst, Aluku Rebels, Shaun Ashby, Beyond Tone, Fiddla, Sy Sez…. the list went on and on. HanLei and Sabrina Chyld agreed to perform live PAs. Then there was the ‘street team’, as well as selling tickets for the event itself, Tee shirts, wristbands and fans were on sale, and I feel honoured that I was able to help with making a donation to set up the print run for the first set of tee shirts. Shazza and Geoff, Charlie, Junior, Jeni, Elvin, Carlos and many more gave their spare time freely to raise as much as possible with a target of around £10,000.

Owen let on that the Rhemi and HanLei track Diamond meant a lot to him – the lyrics “let the pressure make a diamond out of you” were particularly poignant. Talented artist Richard Wilson designed the logo for the FTLOM, featuring all things symbolic to Owen – a vinyl deck, the middle of a 45, cameras, and those Diamonds associated with the song that Owen loved.

Pascal Morais and Rancido very generously made a song ft Tellaman and Maikal X called ‘For The Love of Money’ and gave the proceeds to the cause. Click here to listen/buy.

He continued to post video diaries whenever he had radiotherapy or a CT scan, keeping us updated with his progress and thanking the endless supply of friends who would go to the hospital with him and hold his hand. There must have been some painful and bleak times for him, but he never ever let this show – with incredible strength of character, he continued as normal as much as he could, doing his radio show (now called the 120BPM show), attending events and gigs. Everybody got to hear about his situation and by now, people all around the world who hadn’t met him were following his story on Facebook and gaining inspiration from him. Big name DJs from everywhere made videos to encourage people to donate and attend the FTLOM event, even Louie Vega got involved.

IMG_20160318_063012

On the night of the event, I was shattered. I had just flown in from Spain having spent the previous week at Vocal Booth Weekender which involved lots of late night partying, but nothing was going to stop me. I put my tee shirt on, got the bus to Victoria and danced the night away. It was packed, and every DJ was on point. The afro room was bouncing, the live vocal performances were amazing, and everybody had a brilliant time. Owen arrived and made his way around the crowds hugging and greeting everybody, a bit overwhelmed and humbled by the experience. His family attended too. I couldn’t stay until the very end, but many did, and it is a unique night that I will treasure forever.

In the week after, when the calculations were done, we had raised enough money to send Owen to the Honduras twice over. The effort was outstanding, an outpouring of love and kindness from a community to help one of their own, and everybody felt good.

Owen organized his trip, starting in Florida with a visit to family, and then flying on to the Honduras to Dr Sebi’s Usha Village. Every day he would post a video diary to show us the tranquility, beauty and purity of the environment with its natural alkaline hot spring. Every day Owen would take the pink kettle from his room and walk to the spring to fill it, talking us through the herbs, fruits and vegetables that he was given, how he felt, and how the treatment was going. He was clearly very at home there and loved the experience. Not many patients get to meet Dr Sebi himself as he is a very busy man, but Owen managed to meet him and bagged a rare selfie with the doctor. Everybody looked forward to the ‘pink kettle diaries’.

Before Owen travelled to the Honduras he said hello to me at a Deep Into Soul night at the Prince of Wales in Brixton, and invited me to provide a guest mix for his show. I felt very honoured to be asked, and while he was away, a few of us covered his 120BPM show every week. I created a special afro mix of tracks that I thought might appeal to Owen and remember the buzz that I got when he said “Smooth Sue, very smooth”. It was broadcast on 21 October 2015 with Josh Grooves presenting the show – such a highlight for me.

When he returned he seemed invigorated by the experience and took his personal healthcare to a new level – he went completely Vegan and measured his urine pH every day to maintain and alkaline level. He continued with radiotherapy and regular assessments at the hospital. At first the cancer seemed to be contained, but as time went on his condition worsened and after discussion with his medical team he decided to take a drug called Tarceva which is a targeted cancer drug. He continued to go out and party as much as possible, but his breathing became a problem and made life quite difficult.

Just a month before he died, Owen performed at an event in Brussels with Josh Milan called a Celebration of Life and Friends and he did everybody proud with his DJ set. It must have been really hard for him, but supported by his beautiful partner Mary, he enjoyed the weekend, taking a rare break from his strict diet and sampling the beer and food of Belgium as well as performing and enjoying the music.

12744390_10154149199319305_8752445457344387427_n.jpg

He had been making his own vegan food at home and doing the odd dinner party, and we often messaged each other about recipes. He taught me how to make cashew cream (I am dairy intolerant), and I am not a vegan, but we discussed how to make vegan alternatives to some of the meal photos that I posted on Facebook. He made exquisite cheesecakes and tarts which became quite a talking point on social media. A week after Belgium he launched his very first Vegan & Vinyl night – an idea that he had to combine vegan food with spinning vinyl – two loves of his life that he could share with friends and family. It was a roaring success and the lucky attendees had a very unique experience that night. Everybody was hoping to attend a Vegan & Vinyl night but we didn’t know that Owen’s time was so short.

His breathing got really bad and he ended up in hospital with fluid on his lungs. When the fluid had been drained and CT scans performed it was revealed that the cancer had now spread to both lungs, liver, lymph system and to his brain. The Tarceva had not worked as hoped. Owen was made comfortable and discharged from hospital. He announced his short prognosis on Facebook and proclaimed that he was not going to take this ‘lying down’. In the last week at home he had an ‘open house’ where everybody was welcome – and every day saw a stream of visits from friends and family. He would even get up to spin some vinyl despite having to wear breathing apparatus and take morphine.

On Good Friday 25 March 2016, surrounded by people who loved him, Owen passed away.

We all miss him terribly. Owen was an inspirational, positive, caring, kind, fun loving man, part of our House music community, and a well loved family man. His brave and open journey has helped many others who are trying to deal with cancer. He was somebody very special. Such is the calibre of the man that his favourite artists have all paid tribute to him including Glenn Underground and Black Coffee.

OWEN MADE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. Rest In Peace brother x

Get Myself Together – Reelsoul

Get Myself Together

Get Myself Together – Reelsoul

Will ‘Reelsoul’ Rodriquez lives and breathes music. He has been collecting 45’s since the age of four and still gets a thrill when he finds a rare piece of vinyl to add to his ever growing collection of dance music. With encouragement from his music-loving father, Will taught himself how to play keyboards by ear and began producing beats at the age of twelve with two tape decks and a keyboard. Over the years he has developed and refined his gift and become one of the most respected producers on the planet. He naturally knows which elements to choose from his musical palette, having a flair for what sounds right, and Will has painted a signature soulful sound which invokes a carefree frame of mind in the listener.

Will has previously collaborated with Frankie Feliciano on the Ricanstruction label, and is an integral member of Mr V’s Sole Channel family. He regularly travels around the world enchanting audiences with his top quality DJ sets, and has built up a vast catalogue of releases and remixes having worked with artists including DJ Spinna, DJ Spen, Kimara Lovelace, Monique Bingham, Typheni, Distant People, Chappell, Dawn Tallman, Kenny Summit, Blaze, Eric Benèt, Miss Patty, Nicole Mitchell, Stephanie Cooke and Pete Simpson to name a few.

Get Myself Together is released on Will’s own Reelsoul Musik label, a division of the forward-thinking and innovative Sole Channel brand.

Will has a smoky emotive voice, and the lyrical storyboard tells the tale of a man following his own groove, not being restricted by the boundaries of others and maintaining his own self-belief. This will resonate with all who understand the importance of trusting your own intuition and finding motivation and direction within music.

The Original Mix has the signature Reelsoul bounce and an upbeat vibe, which captures the California sunshine and transports the listener to an easy going ocean location where all is calm, and the waters of inspiration are limitless.

New Jersey’s House specialist Jay Kutz changes it up with a deep, pulsating, four to the floor club version. Atmospheric, warm and mesmerising, this flavour will delight the dancers and carry them on a rapturous journey.

Outstanding Nuyorican talent Mr V brings us a latin flavour, with his chilled sunny interpretation that has the feet tapping from the start. The intoxicating percussion and melodic vocal touches add real warm intensity while retaining the underlying energy of the original.

With this track Reelsoul has captured a special positive feeling, and the two remixes provide exciting alternative backdrops to this uplifting message. Warm, summery and fresh, we have all got ourselves together with Will, and it feels good.
