Kindred Soul bring their brand of polished vocal house to Unique2Rhythm with ‘Don’t Wanna Be’

Kindred Soul have chalked up an impressive resume of tracks on labels like Bad Habit Muzik & Major Leauge Hustlaz.  Now they feature on one of the finest UK based House imprints. Here at Free Breaks Blog we don’t hide the fact we review music we genuinely love. We certainly don’t hide how fond we are of Unique2Rhythm Records and we’re not going to hide how much we love ‘Don’t Wanna Be’

The original version of ‘Don’t Wanna Be’ glides along in Kindred Soul’s signature pure 90’s piano house music style. For these ears, there definitely seems to a subtle nod to Derrick May’s seminal ‘Strings Of Life’ tucked away with the stirring pianos and soul-drenched vocals.

Adam Hyjek graces our blog with another sterling production offering a US-tinged house/garage remix of  ‘Don’t Wanna Be’

K-Soul’s groove mix transports back to the early 90’s Soulful House sound of the late Frankie Knuckles. This remix is rich with 80’s soul style instrumentation and perfectly compliments the vocals.

The truth is you hear releases of this calibre, admire them and feel a bit sad that they don’t get the exposure they deserve. The least we can do is show some support through buying or even just making others aware that music like this is available. Massive kudos to JC Unique and all the artists at Unique2Rhythm who continue to deliver high-quality house music against all odds.

Unique 2 Rhythm Catch Up November 2016


We’re catching up with one of our fave House labels, Unique2Rhythm with 2 essential new releases by True2life & Secret Sinz/Wayne Dudley….

True2life Ft Phillip Ramirez- That’s How Much I Love You

This track will wrap you up nice n’ warm with seminal soul/disco sounds set to a house beat and completed by vocals that perfectly fit the mood and vibe of this great big underground modern classic. How much do we love this? 110%!!

Secret Sinz & Wayne Dudley- Living In The Moment

Secret Sinz draws inspiration from 90’s house music anthems a la Basement Jaxx, anything on Defected, Strictly Rhythm, Todd Terry et al. He distills those influences into his own crisp productions loaded with all the good stuff, pianos, sweeping melodic drops, you name it.

Wayne Dudley is another favourite to the blog and like Secret Sinz, he too has carved a clear niche for quality beats with an oldskool feel. This collab really is the best of both worlds featuring all the vital ingredients as mentioned above. As a real bonus, Wayne Dudley’s remix is a deep soulful treat with a touch of Fusion Groove Orchestra style smoothness, rolling percussion and a catchy as fire lead hook, excellent!!

Rhythm 4 Reason- Rock The Beat [Unique2Rhythm]

This is our second Unique2Rhythm review of the day and it’s a very special track indeed. A surefire contender for one of the best House music tracks of 2016. be sure to check our review of the awesome Bruno Kaufmann & Barbara Douglas release whilst you’re here but let’s talk about about why you need to support this track…

Along with U2R as a label, artists like Phil Maher & Wayne Dudley turned this writer back towards the realm of good House Music. One of the things I love about both producers is the way they integrate oldskool 90s sounds into their tracks. Take a bit of 91-94 era Rave/Hardcore, add in some classic Defected style House, and a hefty dose of UKG/Speed Garage a la Double 99, The Dreem Teem et al

These guys have their roots in those very scenes, as Phil Maher himself says:

My roots pretty much started way back in the early 90’s. I got introduced to the Hardcore Rave scene via my sister’s boyfriend at the time, who was also a DJ. Back then, I was living in Birmingham, and my Saturday’s pretty much consisted of spending most of my time in the city, in what was then “Don Christies”, “Pure Records”, and believe it or not, “HMV” when they used to have a tidy collection of Hardcore.

It was there I got to know the likes of MC Lennie, one of my good friends Rob Wilson AKA “Charisma”, and got put on “Needle To The Groove”, the same agency/books of the likes of DJ Rap, Charisma etc.

I started playing a few small venues, as well as a fair few underground warehouses, the kind where you had to knock on the door to get in, if you know what I mean lol!

It was around the same time that I started producing. With an Amiga 500, a Technosound Turbo Sampler, and Octamed as a sequencer, things were pretty basic, but with plenty of vinyl to sample, it was here where producing really started for me.

I worked along side Rob Wilson at that time, and we were producing tracks not too dissimilar to the “Slammin’ Vinyl” anthems. Real fast paced hands in the air breaks & pianos. It’s from here we caught the attention of Reinforced Records at the time, who were interested in signing us up, but being young and thinking we knew it all, we opted to go it alone. Unfortunately this never panned out, and shortly after, we both went solo, but remain to this day, real good friends.
The rest as they say, is history.

While Phil might not have been signed to the seminal Reinforced imprint, along with Wayne Dudley, he now makes memorable house anthems including those under the Rhythm 4 Reason moniker. This track ‘Rock The Beat’ combines timeless Italo Pianos, rushy synths and a jaw-dropping Rave Breaks style breakdown. You may also notice the remix title in brackets. This is in loving memory of House DJ Alan Weston’s late mother. In loving memory of Maura
