The OXD Mirror: New Music for 11.14.13

 

Jamie Jones: 'Planets, Spaceships (featuring Digitaria)'

Jamie Jones has taken the house music world by storm the past few years.  Whether it's starting his own label with Lee Foss, Hot Creations, or collaborating with other big names as part of his supergroup Hot Natured, Jones' imprimatur can be felt across the house and underground scenes across the globe.  He's back with a new solo EP Planets, Spaceships and he's teamed up with Digitaria on the title track, a duo who hail from Belo Horizonte (OXD's Tad also calls it home).  The song lives up to the Jamie Jones brand of heavy, funky and bass-heavy house, harkening a sound found often at underground dance parties.

 

Bot feat. Robert Owens: 'Friday Pulse (Riton Remix)'

Often producers tend to get the most credit in house music, so it takes a special sort of vocalist to truly stand out amongst a sea of DJs and producers. Robert Owens is one of them. He's lent his soulful voice to dozens of house tunes since the mid 80's and is a recognizable name as part of the golden era of Chicago House music. Italian producer Bot, formerly on half of The Crookers, teamed up with this legend for the soulful yet funky jam 'Friday Pulse'. Riton remixed the song and adds a frantic backing and funky bass line, which works perfectly with the half spoken/half sung nature of Owen's vocals.
