Kickin' It Old School.... House, That Is

Time for some old-school house, y'all. No questions asked, all ripped from my personal collection at glorious 320 kbps. :D

Our theme today is chill-out tracks. Let's begin, shall we?
Most of you may know of Romanthony from his collaboration with Daft Punk ('Too Long', of course!). For those of you who don't know (and you should!) Romanthony is also a prolific house producer in his own right. A lot of his stuff is hard to find; I was lucky to score this for $5 in an East Village record shop. From 1998's "Romanthony EP", "Together" is a glorious laid-back anthem of house. It's simple and lovely, and Eve Angel's smooth vocals round out the track nicely. I want to drive around Hollywood at night with this track blasting from my Rolls Royce, you know?

Now that we've achieved mellow, let's keep it going...

Island Noyze Productions - Visions Of Paradise [right click to download]








Bob Sinclar may have copped the vocal for 1998's "Vision of Paradise", but the original by Island Noyze Productions is supreme in my mind. The hypnotic vocals combined with the tranquil bass and rhythm guitar bring you to an island kingdom where half-naked men in loincloths serve you grapes and fan you with palm leaves, all while dancing erotically in a circle to a conga beat.

...Oh, and the discreet-as-hell Bob James sample is pretty cool too.

By the way, I made a vinyl run on Saturday and found some good-ass shit. Like Armand Van Helden and Roy Davis Jr. and freaking Cassius - '99. Expect vinyl dumps soon.

Haha that's amazing! This one isn't as famous, it's a double album with a white cover actually. It's called "The Secret Mission". Good shit from what I've heard so far.

Hey Wulf, I have some anti-click software that can get rid of the record clicks in the track. If you don't mind, I can send cleaner versions of these tracks your way. Would it bother you?
