Loving all these, especially the Rhemi and Kenny Summit - total tunes 😀 Please keep them coming!

Couple of favourites from me - first up the superb Frankie Knuckles / Director's Cut update of Sybil 'Let yourself go', just love this - wish this mix was on vinyl:-

 

I always liked the original but this takes it into this century - great stuff. The intro reminded me of this earlier effort from 1991, by Cookie Watkins, who was recently touring her Tina Turner tribute act...

From a couple of years ago, cool Richard Earnshaw remix of Eli Escobar 'Seein you'

 

Richard Earnshaw is another very consistently good producer for me. This opener from his LP a few years back, featuring Erik Dillard, I always imagine as the beginning of a great set:

Here is a killer Garage tune from way back when, vocal mix is the one you want 🙂

 

Terry Hunter is another of those consistently good artists, and what a track record. You think this tune might have had some influence on Incognito's hit of the following year, "Every day"?

Remember the park avenue tune getting played Micky, I’d totally forgotten that track, so many things on that label were great, allot did get missed a bit...great label 🙂

it would simply be rude not to mention Ten City in this thread, take your pick guys, but Devotion is still right up there...

brilliant! this is what got me started at the age of 14, then over the years gradualy worked backwards through 80s soul, disco, 2 step/rare groove, crossover to northern and r&b. was a huge fan at the time of blaze, masters at work, 95 north, swing city, smack productions, cajmere etc. but mostly the new jersey stuff until around 98, after that most of it got a bit too smooth and coffee table for my liking! the kerry chandler inspiration track was hammered for quite a long time (was it garage city with bobby + steve?) and brighter days I think is one of the greats. this was before my time but I always though it was a great fully formed song rather than a track-

this is the kind of stuff I had at the time though:

Bobby & Steve definitely got behind "Inspiration". Thanks for posting the Tears of Velva track - new to me. I always liked Lonnie Gordon, even thought her collaboration with SAW was pretty good. Speaking of which, I remember Blues and Soul getting very excited about "British house" when Mel and Kim released "Respectable" ...

The Smokin Beats tune I remember well from the late 90s. From around the same period is this excellent remake of the George Duke classic by Kings of Tomorrow:

Loving these, thanks all - keep 'em coming 😀

Here's a few from me for today, first the super soulful Panevino feat Charles Dockins 'The best of me' 

 

Next the pounding Rocco 'Someday', remixed recently but prefer this version from 2008
