House music wouldn’t be what it is today without funk and soul from the 70s. Put your hands together for the originators! Continue reading
In the late seventies and early eighties it was modern soul busy laying the foundations of house music. Disco was supposedly dead by then, but it wasn’t in the slightest. It was simmering away in the underground ready to come back with a huge electronic bang as “House Music” from the Warehouse Club, Chicago in the mid eighties, heavily influenced by the style of music in this collection.
It was a time of Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, cassette tapes, ghetto blasters and the legendary UK soul weekender. If you were there, you’re going to love this!
Another look into the early roots of House Music, this time original unmixed versions of pioneering soul, funk and disco tracks from the mid 70’s to the very early 80’s. Continue reading

Classic 70s funk and disco from artists such as Patti LaBelle, Robert Palmer, Ashford & Simpson and Gwen McCrae meet laid-back 21st century deep house beats like the excellent Miguel Migs & Lisa Shaw’s Waterfall in this, the 4th Lazy Groove low-tempo mix from johnkeyworth.com. Continue reading
This mashup kinda just “happened” one lazy afternoon spinning a few tunes. Thought it was worth a re-record and share 😉
Turned out quite a sweet-ass track! Cred goes to the legendary First Choice singer Rochelle Fleming for vocals and Brame & Hamo for the base track Hotshot. Love that groove!
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

Songs from the big Chair is one of my most favourite albums EVER.
This is just a quick mashup of the classic track “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” and a beautiful vocal “Dub Be Good To Me”.
“Can U dance to my beat?”
Just rediscovered these mixes by accident. Originally from 2010 and lost due to filing error, both mixes are belters! Don’t remember making these but boy, there are some wicked tracks on here. Continue reading
