SOULDEEP: The Gospel according to Tito – 25 Jan 2013 (with Tracklist)
A fun time in the “studio” for this show. Myself with Queen Danita and Eric “DA MAN” Fagan keeping me company and under control.
This week’s show has a soulful yet deeper feel to it throughout. Got a taste of the real house bug and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Great turnout in the chatroom with the love constantly flowing.

Kerri Chandler¹s MadHouse and MadTech imprints continue the early 2013 with MadHouse serving up “The Lost Tapes” EP from Jam & Keys backed with remixes from Issac Christopher and Lakosa & iO Sounds.
Matt “Jam” Lamont and Brian Keys Tharme worked on these tracks originally in the Tuff Jam heyday but the project was never completed.
Late 2007 the original project files were unearthed and the duo paired up to finish what has been started and the result is ŒThe Lost Tapes¹ EP.
“Anyway You Wanna” and “Only One” make up the original tracks on The Lost Tapes with a soulful modern house slant. Slick, vocal pieces, it’s a testament to the forward thinking nature of the UK’s nascent Garage scenes in the early 2000s that “Anyway You Wanna” and “Only One” sound so fresh (even with the updated work). Vocals lead the way but classic house beats and ultra modern, grinding bass tones and rough leads provide the backbone to great effect.
MadHouse’s own Issac Christopher drops a skipping, energetic interpretation of “Anyway You Wanna” that kicks like a mule and serves as a tidy precursor to his forthcoming “The Good Old Days” single for the imprint. Lakosa & iO Sounds, having appeared on MadTech in 2012 with “Home Early”, deliver a forward version of “Only One” – a piece of loose, broken garage funk that stands out as some of the duo’s best work yet.
Jam & Keys themselves serve up a joyful, key-heavy “Revival” dub of “Only One” that shines brightly at the end of what is yet another standout EP from MadHouse.
Jam & Keys “The Lost Tapes” EP is released on Madhouse 11th February (Beatport) / 25th February 2013 (General Release)

Here’s a little interview I came across by two of (dare I say it) the World’s biggest producers in their genre – Copyright. Dudes of Defected Records and two very very nice blokes (I can say that having met them personally )
Seasoned DJs and producers amongst you will relate to a lot of this….
Kit Mason DJ and producer coming from Harrogate , Leeds is the newest addition to Artefact’s roster. He started playing in the mid nineties and since then has played house music in and out of clubs and bars.
The past year saw him starting producing and as a result of his devotion to innovative use of samples and beats, loops and cords, few eps are set to be released in the next couple of months for few different labels.
His debut is our 29th release titled “I Am Ready” a great title for an EP that shows off his skills and feel for deep tech house, a message to expect more great releases from this young talented producer.
To boldly grow where no man has grown before…
