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)

Back in London for another DJing session
This weekend is a very special weekend in my DJing calendar. For the past 2 years I have returned to London for DJing at the Brickhouse usually to celebrate my friend and DJ collegue, DeanJay’s birthday. This weekend is no exception to the rule.
Following on from previous years the Brickhouse club in London is once again the stage for the annual celebrations to take place SOS DJs to get together and bring you one sweet night of pure underground deep soulful house music. I don’t get back to London (my home town) very often so this is always one of the best nights in my DJ world. I love DJing in London and I’m looking forward to this
Thanks for the love
I’d just like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the SOS DJs for their (usual) superb music over the course of last Saturday. As some of you know on SOS Radio we like to get together and put on a full day of music every Saturday, basically FOR THE LOVE. For the love of the music and for the love of the people. Sometimes we get it together, sometimes we don’t. But last Saturday was one of those “I love it when a plan comes together” kinda day.
