In light of Michael Jackson's recent passing, I see it only right to post a couple of tracks in tribute to the man. He had a big influence on me, especially at a young age so here I'm including a couple of personal favourites. R.I.P
Michael Jackson - I Can't Help It (Todd Terje ReKutt)
Michael Jackson - The Lady In My Life

With the launch of our upcoming monthly events, being held at the Milk Club (Sunderland) in July, we will be welcoming our friends from Newcastle, Steve Dunn and Jason Hopper. Going under the guise of One20 (from the term 120bpm) these guys will be joining residents Gary and myself to churn out some real musical nuggets for a deep down and dirty party. The lads have been doing the rounds at some of the best events and bars in the North East for some years now, so we'll be expecting some deep housey, disco chugging, boogie grooving sounds and a real kick off to the first event of hopefully many to come.
TOUCHSOUL presents One20 at The Milk Club

SATURDAY JULY 18th
Upstairs in Bar Pure

Something that will be oozing from the speakers early doors no doubt...
Cliff Dawson - I Can Love You Better
Here's another edit from someone who also can do some damage with his re-edits. U-Tern, who flipped Michael Jackson's PYT over and probably has made the best James Brown rework so far with his Dead On It release featured earlier in this blog, throws out this one. An obscure Love International boogie disco number from 1981 gets the treatment here and a belter of a tune it is to. Pitched down and funked up...
Love International - Dance On The Groove (U-Tern Re-Edit)
From the 3rd Instruments Of Rapture 12" released on 22nd July on L.E.S.S. Here's a taster from the vinyl called Heavy Love, from The Revenge. Pulling out Marvin Gaye on the edit of this disco groover. Get the vinyl in July people at the link below. You have all been warned...

Remix of the Roland Clark track, recently released on Soul Heaven. Here the fiddling duties fall to Scottish fellas Craig Smith and Graham "The Revenge" Clarke as always puttin a fresh and unique stamp on the cuts they touch...Hopefully gonna catch Craig at the SolidGroove (Newcastle) event in August....Check it out.
Craig Smith & The Revenge - Soul Good (Soul Heaven)
Superb funk workout from Mr Scruff, released last year on Ninja Tuna. Had a couple of opportunites to play this out again lately and it goes down a storm. Splendid stuff as always...go on, have a go....

An unreleased track from Robbie M, who was a member of Midnight Express, the band best known for there track "Danger Zone". Its unreleased so the quality on the download isn't perfect, but decent enough to enjoy. Some honest to goodness electronic soul with a superb vocal...Check out the video aswell.

Released on Glasgow Underground back in 2001 and was also featured on the Naked Music "Nude Dimensions" series. Great remix from Weekender which still sounds fresh.
A tasty slice of some melodic, vocal deep house...enjoy.
Jersey Street - Step Into The Light "Weekender Mix" (GU)
From a time when Bob Sinclar released stuff worth listening to, rather than the pop/dance/shit he's released over the last few years. This is a mid tempo funker from what I'm sure was his first album released in 1998, Paradise, which I still have on vinyl.
Bob Sinclar - Get Into The Music (Yellow Productions)

Gonna be keepin a sweet deep house vibe, starting with this remix of the great BRS track. Although it doesnt top the Dubtribe remix with the great bass lick, its cool in it's own right as groovy, warm deep houser....enjoy.
BRS - Lovin' Me "Bittersuite Mix" (Peng)

A fresh, mid tempo boogie disco cut released on Future Classic. This has been recently given a re-issue on the above Apres 12" and the remix treatment from Toby Tobias. Loving this track at the minute, great production plus with this excellent weather it's fitting just right. Enjoy....
Touch Sensitive - Body Stop "Original Mix" (Future Classic)
