VA- U2R: 2 Years & Counting [Unique2Rhythm]



A must have compilation of carefully selected tracks that bring together everything that is great about House music in 2016, that’s 2 years and counting of a label you need to know about, Unique2Rhythm, here’s why…..

Perhaps you’re reading this and have a few things in common with me, you’ve come back to house music after quite a long break, you were listening to house way back when on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, you remember artists like Ten City, Lil’ Louis, Satoshi Tomiie, the late Frankie Knuckles, you thought that golden era from 89-92 was a thing of the past until now. Now you’re back and you appreciate artists like Low Steppa, Eric Kupper, Grant Nelson, you check Traxsource for it’s extensive growing collection of good house music and soundcloud of course. You will have noticed a degree of saturation within the house boom of the last few years, the music channels popping up weekly on soundcloud featuring free content via 3rd party apps, yes there’s no shortage of decent house music but you are pining for memorable tracks that stand out from the crowd, bear with me because I’m like you and I’m telling you “2 Years & Counting” features a staggering 29 tracks, not a single filler, in fact I urge you to Buy From iTunes or any good download store and take a listen, you can even stream the mix below to get a taster and read on just a little further because I’m so eager to share with you why I feel this is THE compilation for you right now.

I discovered Unique2Rhythm last year, I’m a bit of a latecomer which makes me all the more glad for this album. It was down to a track which features on “2 Years & Counting”, a track by Timmy Thomas called “Stand Up”, the Stonelove Mix to be precise, the combination of an amazing voice, loved up lyrics that make the heart melt and a truly timeless production style instantly won me over. I ventured to the U2R soundcloud page and noticed none other than 2 time U.K top 20 artist Kym Sims who after 23/24 years still sounds great, her incredible track “Won’t Do That” is on here too, who else is featured on this album? How about 86Deep, Bumpin Soul, AM2PM, Adam Hyjek, JC Unique, Arneo, Wayne Dudley and a load more talented artists. Over the 29 tracks you will taste the full spectrum of Deep, Tech, Garage, classic house and even shades of Nu Disco and funky house, you will hear very clearly that every single track has been carefully picked by a label owner with a passion for the very best, the best in terms of production, style, sound, ethos and perhaps most importantly tracks that you will be listening to you years from now just like you still listen to Inner City and the all time legends of the good old days, this is today’s house but it’s as timeless as the house that jack built, hit play below then Buy From iTunes

Golden Girls – Kinetic (Pirate Jams Remix)


Jalapeno Records has just released bonafide classic Golden Girls – Kinetic the Remixes, bringing back that iconic rave riff with remixes from AOTOA, Pirate Jams and Lindoman.

We’re bringing you the premiere of the Pirate Jams interpretation which has seen massive early support from all corners of the dance scene including rave pioneers Slipmatt and Graeme Park. The mysterious duo take the classic sounds of the Orbital and Mike Haell collaborative track and under pin with a hefty breakbeat / 4 x 4 crossover whilst keeping all the rawness of the original in tact. Adding subtle edits and delicate synths they perfectly update one of the most well known tunes of the rave era for the 2015 crowds.


Terry Hooligan – Midnight Mixtape Vol.1


Extra large serving of bass from Terry Hooligan on his latest mix “Midnight Mixtape Vol 1″. Serving up a slick combination of breaks, house and all areas in between he provides us with an on point selection of all the sounds rocking his DJ sets at the moment.

Jem Stone – Stone Grooves Vol 1

Jem stone

We first saw Jems infectious swing alter-ego surface back in 2004 with some low key remixes for Jalapeno Records and a single release on Finger Lickin Records, but the sound we’re hearing now only really surfaced in 2011 with his debut release on Freshly Squeezed, the “Electric Circus EP“. Since then Jem has let loose a plethora of swing tinged toons on some of the best labels in the scene today. He has recorded a huge collaboration with super funker Kid Creole (ask your parents kids), got down and dirty with “Lick The Spoon” and hit the top (o the town) with MC Mouthmaster Murf and MC Goldseal on Ghetto Funk.

After all the hard work it was inevitable that Jem’s consistent output would form a long player and “Stone Grooves Vol 1″ is the result. The album kicks off with bumping jazz vibes of “The Jem Stone Express” which sets the scene perfectly with smooth, spaced out synth licks and classic swing samples intertwined with beefy kick-snare combo and all kinds of sound effects. Can just imagine walking through some space punk inspired city with this as the soundtrack.

“Well Oiled Machine” throws down some steppy broken beats with a sparse bassline and off kilter synths. “Holy Smoke” (ft. Roxanna Panufnik) (gotta be a relation?) is lush balearic material done right, perfect Ibiza beach music. “No Place For A Lady” sees the swing vibes come out to play again with a bouncy house beat and plenty of horn action. “Sweetpea” marks the halfway point of the album and is almost an album itself. At 10:45 you could squeeze four modern day trap bangers into its time slot (don’t play trap, please). It twists and turns through many sonic soundscapes and ambient noise spheres, bringing the listener on a proper journey with leisurely hip hop beat interludes and organically twinkling pads.

“Hot Dog Supreme” is another slo mo swing-house meld that combines all elements nicely leading into “Storm In A Teacup” which hammers out tribal techno rhythms with disco licks and filter fx. Would love to hear a Soul Of Man breakbeat remix of this! “Penshala” sees the trip hop sound creeping back upon us with great results. On “You Are Nothing Without Me” Jem breaks out the breakbeats on this dark-swing-tinged roller, “Fake Ghost” is a percussive, tech house ride leading into the last track, the aptly named “The Final Curtain”.

Jem has achieved what many dance music artists mess up and has written a proper album. With many twists and turns, highs and lows and a diverse mix of dancefloor beats blended with downtempo grooves and just plain old good music. Full support from Free Breaks Blog.

If you’re feeling any of the tracks they are all available to purchase separately, as an entire album, as a mixed, hour long showcase and if you’re just to tight/skint/poor to muster up a couple of £/$ to support, then the whole thing can be streamed from Soundcloud or below :).


Neon Steve – Do Work


Last year Neon Steve started his “Free’on” series and gave away stacks tunes. After not quite hitting his original mark of 14 free tunes (some got picked up by labels before they became free) he has already got off the mark in 2015 with his first freebie.

“Work” is a killer track which sits firmly in the bass & breaks category and should find favour with the Booty Breaks and house lovers alike.
