Soulful House Vol. 8 - Swingin' Chicago House

I am so glad that a new style is gaining more and more popularity: The Chicago Sound, a mixture of Jazz, Blues and Swing is being recreated and mixed up with jackin' House Beats.

You sure know some of these old tunes that were played when gramophones - imagine a 1210 just with unsteady single speed but with build-in speaker limited to 11 KHz sound - were modern.
So this sound really works great combined with House and there've been so many great tunes released in the last time that i decided to put them (and some older ones) together into a mix.

Some of this tunes are already my alltime fav's and i play them whenever i can, thats a style i really love. Guys, check it out. Swing is the new Funk!
