Through his journey to disco, Parisian producer Blackjoy has hosted French Touch radio, worked for Bob Sinclair, and launch his own label. He has all the right tones plus a swagger that only the French can emit. If you can hold down this smooth vibe, the record is sexy.
The B-side is a future classic in the rinsed remix by Henrik Schwarz. Not much more can be said about that one except… it may change your life. Wei Chi is said to compose all of his tunes on a piano and is shows, very trippy jazz right here.
Deep from DSP, a house set doesn’t count without a couple of dreamy house records. The vocal single on ‘Sins I’ve Lost’ is a refreshing reminder of funk from the San Francisco-based label.
Outbound is the very first VA on vinyl breakouts Mathias Schober and Thomas Herb’s German label. The record features the self-dubbed Lossless ‘inner circle’ Anthony George Patrice, SBTH, and Neil himself. Always keep some of your own weapons handy I guess, nice one Neil.
Classic vibes lead this decade-old Memphis track. Somewhere between house and a ballad of tribal, this percussive dance tune is subtly euphoric. Rounding off the stack in a borderline Balearic manner, I’ll have this one on repeat for some time.
Keep watch for Neil, Djing on the road and releasing recordings for the racks. Strapped with these five records, it’s just a taste of his sets’ dancey vibe. Keep watch and catch him in your town.
