Soul Sessions presents: 51 Albany Street – the afterparty soundtrack

Continuing on from Part 1 of this month’s mix, Part 2 is a tribute to the much-loved 1990’s post-Room afterparties at 51 Albany Street, Hull, courtesy of my friends Louise and Nan who are both turning 50 this year. I’m sure there are many older Hull clubbers who’ll fondly remember those heady days chilling out, having a cuppa and talking bollocks all night to some uplifting mellow tunes whilst crashed out in their front room. Good times! Continue reading

Soul Sessions December 2014

The last mix of 2014 before I jet off to the UK is choc-full of beefed up old skool goodies from Bill Withers, De La Soul, Positive Force and Class Action, amongst others.
It’s all about the groove: disco, funk and a bit of jazz,  mixed with modern deep and soulful house and fat bass lines, topped off with some Broken Beat –  it’s all in there!

Hope you have a groovin’ Christmas! Continue reading

Soul Sessions January 2014

Had to rush this one through before new year as I’ll soon be off touring from Perth to Tasmania on my motorbike. Needed some new tunage for my trip so here’s the result. Slightly more mellow than normal but great soulful tunes none the less.

My fave is Louis Vega’s remix of EOL – Figli Delle Stelle, which means “sons of stars” in Italian just in case you’re wondering. I just love the unexpected Italian vocal popping up from nowhere on top of the usual laid back beats from EOL. Great stuff.

Anyhow, sod Christmas I’m off riding. See ya in a month!

Soul Sessions November 2013

Been neglecting the tunes for a while due to life’s little distractions, but finally I’m back with a generous helping of harder-edged deep soulful house tracks.

Check out the Earnshaw remix of Husky’s This Time and my fave Selfish Lover by Lem Springsteen. The mix begins with deep dark sexy house moving through funky soul to a nice remix of Jamiroquai’s Canned Heat and onward to soul with a harder edge and pounding beats from Noir, ending with a selection of jazzy jackin’ tracks and a classic deep house finale – Yesterday’s Gone.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Thanks for listening!
