Christine and the Queens – Tilted (Paradis Remix)

There is so much great music coming out over the next few days it's unreal. So I guess it's a little ironic that i'm opting for a track nearly a year old in Paradis's remix of the amazing Tilted by Christine and the Queens.   In truth I'd forgotten all about this version of the track, the original is a particular favourite but i may actually like this version better (especially the French version, but more...

Mayten – Detours

Its late, i am pretty knackered, but i really wanted to put something up and i really wanted to share this absolutely lovely piece of deep house.   The term "tracks taking you on a journey" is thrown about quite a lot, but tonight's track really does. This is the first i have heard of Mayten's stuff – a Seattle based electronic music producer. He released an album last Autumn and this is his latest single. It...

Netsiah – Two Lives

In the uk at the moment, arrived yesterday as the sad event was taking place in London. This morning I travelled to work on the tube from my dad's and while people were going about their business as normal there was a sadness in the air. I plugged in my headphones and turned on some tunes to cheer me up.   On came today's track, a track we were sent and I have been playing a fair...

Syl Johnson – Is it because I’m Black (David August Live Reconstruction)

Posting a couple of days late as it's my birthday and I have been buys. As it is my birthday I have decided I'm going to post whatever the hell I want, and what I want to post is David Augusts awesome rework of Syl Johnson's classic 70's ode to empowerment "Is it because i'm black".   Call it a reconstruction, call it a remix, or call it a re-edit the fact is it thumps...

Eat More Cake – Heat Of The Night

i must look like a lunatic when I'm driving to work in the mornings, particularly when I have tracks like this on and the sun is shining There is no doubt I will be doing some outrageous head nodding and making my sunglasses dance in time by flicking the arms behind my ears.   Aapie and I are suckers for stuff like Eat More Cake's Heat Of The Night on the excellent and ever growing Perfect...

6th Borough Project – The Weight

I've lost count of the times we've featured the Revenge or 6th Borough Project. It's been a few and for good reason, because they remain to this day one of my favourite production teams. I guess the key is the consistency in their production, be it on their solo projects or as 6th borough and The Weight again brings the slow-mo sleazy dirt to the dancefloor.    Like most other house focused tracks by the duo it's...

Charly Brown – The Twilight Zone

Well seeing as I started the week with a throwback, i'm taking the easy option and sticking with it and going for another classic in Charly Brown – The Twiglight Zone.   The Twiglight Zone is one of those tracks, it landed at a time (1997) when Acid Jazz and similar was just starting to break into new directions and it's funked laced loopy grooves absolutely hit home with the jazz scene crowds as much as it...

Damiano von Erckert & Funkycan – Symphonie Of A Brother

Been listening to a lot of deep house of late, which should not come as a surprise. Anyway, been digging through a lot of older stuff, and stumbled back upon Symphonie of a Brother.   It's a classic, a simple classic, but a classic none the less. A wonderful orchestral strings loop, over a energetic beat with spoken word black empowerment samples. It's essentially a quintessential chi- house style track, and one of my favourites of recent...

The Revenge – Our Own Thing

Something I love is going back to a track some months on and realising it's actually an absolutely outstanding gem of a tune. Case in point todays track, Our Own Thing by The Revenge. I've had it for months, it's actually the bonus track on the Intimate Connection EP from last March, but it's only in listening to it this last week I've been trully sucked in by it. Not that I didn't like then it's...

Kauf – Key To Life (Ambassadeurs Remix)

We've been running the walktotwork for about 4 years now (I think) and whilst we know we're not a huge website we like to think we contribute a little. Being not huge allows us to really just go with what our hearts tell is and pick music that we genuinely love, sometimes that throws a curve ball into the selection (but hey, who doesn't have their own guilty pleasures?) but that also affords us the time and space to...
