Soulful House / Garage Picks

Audio Lists Chris Turnbull

Following the relative success of the recent jazz and jazz funk threads I just wondered any other soulful house / garage fans out there? I probably buy more of that on vinyl than anything else - sounds top notch on a decent system and for me often a lot more soulful than more mainstream modern soul

Anyway here's a couple of gems from Soundmen on Wax to kick off, Su Su Bobien - I'll be loving you (Little Big Room Vocal Mix), and Michael Watford 'For your luv' (Melchyor A's Dub Mix)

Oh dear, Chris, you really know how to wipe out hours and hours...

Well, considering how much I've learned as a result of others' choices I shouldn't complain. Here's the first thing that comes to my mind - Arnold Jarvis from way back in 1994:

Something much more recent, featuring a lady who's uncannily like Gwen McCrae to these ears - Rhemi:

Sticking with the recent stuff and slowing the tempo a bit, Sean McCabe is one of the most reliable producers out there just now - featuring Renn on vocals:

Jonny Montana is another producer/mixer who regularly does it for me, and with Ralf Gum and Monique Bingham it's a winning combo:

Like the Rhemi and Ralf Gum tunes, this I learned thanks to listening to Garry Williams' excellent house show on Stomp Radio every Wednesday 8-10pm UK time - Kenny Summit, absolutely glorious:

Hi Mickey, 

Thanks for kicking this off - you were my banker on here, I was wondering where you'd got to 😁

Look forward to checking out your posts properly later - hopefully a few more will join in as well - so many great tunes to go at

Cheers, Chris.

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:-

Came to this through Glasgow DJ Denis Sulta, who plays a remix of Thelma Houston 'Don't know why I love you' in his live sets which I think is this one - been on heavy rotation here for the last 12 months 😁

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...

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:

Going back some years to when I used to be glued to Bobby and Steve's show on Kiss FM every Thursday. This 1991 tune has been reissued in instrumental form (?!) when the full vocal is what gives it added urgency. Oh, and great video :thumbsup:

Going back to 1987 for this underappreciated tune by Park Avenue - mixed by Tee Scott, and featuring a much younger Josh Milan with Blaze:

There's about 800ish mixes of this 1992 tune from Cajmere feat. Dajae, but the Tee Dope mix brings out her glorious voice in all its power:

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"?

Thought this was pretty good from a few years back..reminds me of the 90s big time and the vocals from Mary J Blige are terrific.

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...

While We are on the classics, a mate of mine said recently he had a copy of Sterling Void in the box right through 89/90 and into 91, it’s simply that good!

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:

this is a total favourite too, again before my time, but in the mid 90's a lot of this stuff was 50p of £1 from record and tape exchange

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:

Back to 1987 for this original and best album mix of this particular tune. Will Downing is more of a crooner these days, but on the Arthur Baker-led Wally Jump Jr and the Criminal Element project he was giving it some:
