The return of MyHouseYourHouse, tune in tonight at 6pm

MyHouseYourHouse was one of the original streaming stations dedicated to dance music.  I was proud to be involved for a good number of years with my Repair Your Soul shows and later alongside my good friend Dave Sector with the Beyond Sector 12/12 shows.  The MyHouseYourHouse team have decide to get the band back together for a limited period whilst the world is in Covid-19 lockdown.  They’ve already had excellent sessions from the likes of Red Rackem, Beane Noodler and main organiser Alex Traska.  The full schedule can be viewed on the website.  I will be bringing back Repair Your Soul this evening from 6pm for an old school vinyl session.  Plenty of vintage House and Broken tunes all lined up, with a couple of funk bombs.  It’s a video stream too, so you can have a little peak into the chaos that is my attic/studo and laugh at the look of concentration on my face.  Join us from 6pm GMT here

Mother Tongue

Mother Tongue is a brand new record label and vinyl pressing plant run by Patrick Gibin out of Verona Italy. They currently have a couple of great vinyl only releases out in the wild that are seriously good.

First up is Pezzate #001, four wicked disco boogie edits from Twice & Volcov. No titles or details on these, just great music that speaks for itself. If you’re a fan of Patrick’s Black Aroma series you’re going to love these. Click here to secure a copy.

The second release is shrouded in even more mystery than the first. All we have is 黒舌, I’m not sure if this is an artist name, not much to go on here. A listen to the music may well give you a clue who’s behind it, I think I know, though I won’t spoil the fun. Two tracks of groovy dancefloor goodness. Check it out at this link
