Used to have to choose between house spots in NYC a few years back. Now, seems like they are all gone. Vinyl, Limelight, Shelter (tho I think Regisford still spins on Sunday. I gotta work Mondays), Medina at the APT, etc.

Same in Philly. All the parties I took for granted back in the day are gone. I'd gladly pay $20 for one of those $10 parties to come back.


I don't trust what these new folks call "house." Shit just isn't the same, and from what I've heard is a little to close to EDM for me.

For some reason, a lot of these guys are TERRIBLE about updating their websites with events (age, maybe?). Gotta plan ahead since I have a 7yo. Sigh... I guess I'd better start researching April/May parties now, lest I miss the one tweet they sent out about it.

Edit: Looks like LLV spins at Cielo. Hmm...

Although where Detroit and Chicago will always win is with the locals

But NYC gets big names all the time

I think its that some ppl need that "soulful house" that we didnt have anything nice to say about last time lol

Got links?

I probably *do* like a lot of that stuff. Got into house in the late 80s (Plastic Dreams was the first track I remember), and have a preference for the slower Chicago-style house, but I do like the fast-paced NYC shit too.

Not sure what counts as "soulful house" or not, unless you are talking about those godawful vocal edits (like the Whitney Houston or Sade ones). I hate that shit with a passion.

When i hear it i tune out because its kinda sleepy to me. In Detroit deep house still knocks and has people sweating out their hairdos. Soulful house is background lounge music to me.

When you said stripped down tracks i assumed you meant something like this

Marquis Hawkes - Outta This Hood: http://youtu.be/6vODGVrN9TU

That is a great example of my favorite style of house and is the exact opposite of soulful house

I agree. This one dude at the record shop used to call soulful house "downtempo" in the record stores around here (had to go to that section to find that stuff). Not bad for the car, but just not the right energy for the club.

Yup. I love that sound. I love how these tracks punch, especially on big speakers. Here's one of my favorites:

Clone Recordings, specifically the sublabel Jack 4 Daze

Check out some of those artists and tracks and try working outward from there

Marquis Hawkes, Alden Tyrell, Geeeman aka Gerd Janson

You may also like some of the stuff on Ultramajic

Regarding that old stuff...the Dance Mania compilation Hardcore Traxxx has been in my rotation for 6 months solid. LOTS of acid & ghetto bangers on there

I came up on stripped-down, 80s & 90s Chicago & NYC house, as well as some early techno and without a doubt the stuff that I've heard a lot of younger DJs spin is a lot different than that.

Maybe you live where there are still DJs spinning older stuff, but a lot of the stuff I've heard these younger DJs spinning sounds over-produced and lacks the "feel" of the classics.

And you may very well be right if thats the case. I dont know what the NYC/Philly young guns are playing.

But people are still making house and techno with that spirit and there are many great touring DJs who play it.

Some old-school techno used to get this right, but these new songs rely on this way too much.
