Summer Fondue Podcast This weekend, right between two episodes of Summer Fondue radioshow, a big bonus for podcast subscribers has arrived. This is my 5 hours (sic!) mixtape recorded live on a private party in Moscow on February 27th 2010. Featuring mainly soulful house it also contains some ‘dancing parts for adults’. I’m putting it as is and hope you’ll enjoy realizing it’s Live, led by party and people atmosphere. I’d also like to thank the client for inviting me and letting to share this with the world.

Summer Fondue Podcast Here’s a small bonus for my podcast subscribers. I’m putting out the guestmix I recorded for Funky Hour Radioshow by our local Russian DJ Euphorique, it was aired in January. This one hour mix is kinda funky one, even with a bit of jackin’ flava in the peak (and some Russian IDs LOL), but still soulful. So in meantime while awaiting for the next Summer Fondue, why don’t you check this out?

Is Soulful House Dying?

27 December 2009

Is Soulful House Dying? US based house DJ Ricardo Torres recently posted a wonderful insightful article entitled “Is Soulful House Dying?“. With an accurate observations on soulful house scene and industry, this post caused a long discussion in comments (and on Facebook as well) where people from all over the world share the situations. I’d like to express my full consent on Ricardo’s vision and to invite every one and all to read that post. A bit of teasing quote:

The recent worldwide recession and financial crisis has left the music and clubbing business almost dead. […] we have less and less house nights which in turns means that (soulful) house DJs have less gigs (where they really make their money) so they start making other type of music (like freakin’ hard electro) so they can get gigs and so on, and so on. It’s like a domino effect. Is that how a scene dies? Or if you look at it in another way, is that how a scene is re-born?..
