- Life on Planets – Altitude / Young Art Records
This great talent has been on my radar since my trip to Mallorca before the covid lockdowns. Crisp writing and fantastic delivery. A mainstay on my USB Stick.
2. Thakzin · Sun-El Musician · Thandazo · Nomthandazo / I.C.U / Memories .
This has been on my GO TO list since 2021. Great song, Dynamic grooves. Always hits the mark at the parties. Once that hook comes in. You cant be denied. Excuse me I’m on the guest list.
3. TSOS, Idd Aziz – Potea / DIRIDIM
Whenever you get a DJ promo from David Morales himself you know he’s excited about a project. His label has been on fire the last few years. This time around he showcases TSOS w Idd Aziz on vocals. “Potea” is an afro house classic.
4. Hyenah, Rimarkable – The Manifesto / Rise Music
Two of my faves team up on this afro groove adventure. Never doubt any release you see from RISE. Based out of Berlin they have been at the forefront of the afro house movement’s bridge to Europe. Highly recommended.
5. PolyRhythm – Historia Nuestra / Polyrhythm Music
Classic NY style latin house. Vocal sample provides a history lesson in latin music culture. Takes me back to those New York EL Barrio parties back in the day where you came to dance, drink, and get lucky.
Catch Oscar P live and direct at West Coast Weekender’s 5 Year Anniversary Saturday, June 11, at Quartyard alongside Matthew Dear, Fred Everything, and DJ Honeybun.
