Short Vacation

Hi Fellaz,

i'll be out for a short 7-day trip to Sicily, the weather there is just wonderful right now, 32° :) Perfect for relaxing on the beach with a cocktail while listening to some Lounge House Music.

I've already a new mix - Vol. 3 - in store for you, so check back in June to get some fresh latino Lounge-House sounds.

HedKandi goes Cologne

HedKandi is coming to town - MY TOWN! That's something like a miracle for me... finally there's some soulful house sound in the city. And - it's getting better... it won't be only a one-stop party, it's gonna be a monthly thing! I still can't believe that... :-))

DJ's at the first party, which is going to be on 6th June will be Wez Clarke and Jamie Richards. The Party will be (just 10 minutes from me) in the "Opernterassen", starting 10:00 p.m. More infos in german here.

I'll be wearing a t-shirt with my website on the back, so if you (one of my readers) will be there, drop me a line before the party or just look at me right there. Would be great to talk with some house music lovers.

There will be some people from the community on the party as well, so get your ass on the floor and lets have a great party ;-)

Speed Garage Classics (Bassline House)

This is it, my masterpiece so far! Speed Garage Classics, Anthem Style.
If you like Bassline House or warped bases like in Electro-House, you gotta check this out.

This Mix contains the greatest Anthems of the Speed Garage genre from 1997-1999.
If you have missed this wonderful time or/and want to look retrospectively at the sound, grab this Mix.
I did this one, because i wasn't satisfied with any mix i've had heared before, either with the track selection or the mixing style.

As you can see, most of the tracks were produced by 187 Lockdown, Loop da Loop or Armand van Helden - everyone of them has its own style but they sound really good in combination.
I know that the first tracks are a bit off the genre, but they came out in this time and contain some distinctive Speed Garage elements.

1. Tori Amos - Professional Widow (Armand's Star Trunk Funkin' Mix)
2. Nuyorican Soul - Runaway (Mongoloids In Space)
3. CJ Bolland - Sugar Is Sweeter (Armand van Helden Remix)
4. Urban Funk - Ultrafunkula (White Label Remix)
5. 187 Lockdown - Kung-Fu (Original 187 Mix)
6. A vs B - Ripped in 2 Minutes (Original Mix)
7. De'lacy - Hideaway 1998 (187 Lockdown Hidden Vocal Dub)
8. Gant - Sound Bwoy Burial (187 Lockdown Remix)
9. Funk Junkeez - Got Funk (Heavy On Da Bass Mix)
10. Studio 2 - Travelling Man (12" Mix)
11. Lisa Stansfield - The Line (Loop da Loop Gangster House Mix)
12. Ze Express - I've Got To Run
13. Les Indiscretes - The Way
14. Todd Terry - Something Goin' On (Loop da Loop Uptown Mix)
15. Gisele Jackson - Love Commandments (Loop da Loop Vocal Mix)
16. 187 Lockdown - Gunman (Original Mix)
17. Adeva - Don't Think About It (187 Lockdown Mix)
18. Byron Stingily - Sing A Song (187 Lockdown Vocal Mix)
19. Sneaker Pimps - Spin Spin Sugar (Armand Van Helden's Speed Garage Mix)

Playtime: 100 minutes of pure hustle. BPM varies from 128-132.
