Sly & Robbie – High Voltage Syndrome

Sly & Robbie may well be the most prolific recording artists ever. One staggering estimate is that they have played on or produced some 200,000 songs. Sly & Robbie are reggae’s longest lasting production team. The rhythm section of drummer Lowell Dunbar (nicknamed Sly after Sly Stone, one of his favorite musicians) and bass guitarist Robert Shakespeare started working together in the mid 1970s, after having established themselves separately on the Jamaican music scene.
One of the most respected electronic composers of the ’90s, Howie B is a sonic polymath whose production work with U2, Bjork, Tricky, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, Sly And Robbie and Everything But The Girl has made him an ace hired gun often called upon to give pop stars credit in the dance world.

Ben Westbeech – So Good Today
Ben Westbeech’s ‘So Good Today’ was one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2006. The Bristol based soul kid was classically trained in cello, voice and piano before getting into hip-hop and dance music, and his quirky brand of soul music is deeply refreshing.
Snapped up by Gilles Peterson’s new label imprint, Brownswood Recordings, ‘So Good Today’ was voted in the top 5 tunes by listeners on Radio 1’s Worldwide show on the strength of airplay alone and 500 copies of a limited edition vinyl release were snapped up in hours.

Lush. I feel this.


Critical Point feat. Vikter Duplaix – Messages (Main Mix)

A songwriter, producer, singer, and DJ, Vikter Duplaix is originally from Philadelphia and remains highly connected to the Philly soul movement. In the 90s Duplaix worked primarily as a producer working on records for Erykah Badu, Musiq, and Jaguar Wright.
A friendship with Philly DJ King Britt led to an immersion in modern dance music. He contributed vocals to Britt’s Scuba project (Swell) and soon was producing his own material; underground singles like “Messages,” “Manhood,” and “Sensuality” went over well with house DJs, including Masters at Work, who gave “Sensuality” a big push.
