Soulful House Vol. 4 - Orchestral-House Special

Okay, i know what you guys are after and why you keep coming back:
Here is for you a very special Soulful House Mix: Orchestral-House at its best!

But lets go back: Disco Orchestration evolved during the late 70s disco era, the most popular formation was the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, their sound got known as Philly Soul.
While the philly sound was more funky other orchestras like the New Yorkan or the Los Angeles Orchestra supported many uptempo disco bands.

You've sure heared the sounds of the Salsoul Orchestra or First Choice. Well, this sound harmonizes extremly well with house music and one of the greatest producer in the last years is DJ Meme. He combines the orchestral sound with house elements, building outstanding and timeless house music songs.

So i did a selection of the greatest Orchestral-House songs, all in one mix! This one is for your romantic moments, it lifts you up and shows you the bright side of music. Be sure you check this out!

Disco - Le Film (2008)

If you like classic 70s disco music, shiny disco balls, afro heads, funky moves and bell-bottoms ... i got a hot movie tip for ya: Disco - Le Film, a french production from 2008.

Of course, the story is quite simple but the actors (with Gérard Depardieu) and the dancing scenes are great and so is the film worth watching!

It features not only 70s disco music from Boney M. und Eartha Kitt but also some fresh tunes from
Cerrone (Laisser toucher).

Check it out, here's a funny trailer:

Party-Review: HedKandi Cologne Opening Party

The long awaited HedKandi Cologne Party took place last weekend, but to say it in few words: Nothing for real house music lovers!

Ok, the location was great, also the decoration was. Jamie played some nice (commercial) uplifting house tunes in the first two hours. But after midnight the music changed and Jamie and Wez played tunes you've heared over and over again. Mainstream Tech- and Electro-House, nothing fresh, innovative or special, maybe two good tracks per hour. I saw some other people being frustrated from this same old sound you hear in Cologne for years now.

Let's hope it's gonna be better the next parties! More funky and soulful, bringing us the real HedKandi feeling from UK and not trying to fit into the contemporary german music.

Check out the HedKandi party pics.
