Bounce Camp - Big Dancin'

Semi-new piece of Bmore inspired house from German producer Bounce Camp. Any remixer that can take a good vocal and succeed in not fucking it up is O.K. in my book. Here, Bounce Camp succeeds in retooling Raphael Saadiq's vocal on Lucy Pearl's Dance Tonight. This could move any dancefloor out there. Check it out and Bounce Camp's other offerings.

Dave Nada - Love in this Bmore Club

Baltimore club, also called "Bmore Club" or "Club Music" is a genre of house and dance music. A blend of hip hop and chopped, stacatto house music, it was created in Baltimore, Maryland in the early 1990s by pioneers Scottie B., Frank Ski, Big Tony, and DJ Spen

...that's one way to define it. I like to define it as a genre of dance music for black people, by black people. Back when British Elecronic artists such as Fatboy Slim, Prodigy and the Chemical Brothers were taking over the American Pop charts in the late 90s, American artists such as Scottie B, DJ Technics and KW Griff were burning Baltimore, Philly and New Jersey to the ground.

Originally an underground genre, the latest year has brought us mainstream hits such as DJ Class's "I'm the 'ish" featuring Pitbull and Lil Jon and Kid Cudi's "Embrace the Martian". Bmore has also made a couple of appearances in HBO's "The Wire".

While the genre is gaining some ground in the mainstream, it hasn't been able to shake it's image as a club-going, booty-shaking, foul-mouthed sub-genre of House music. However, this mix from Dave Nada helps to unveil a new image. This soulful collection of R&B mixes helps to show the versatility of the Genre. I mean...there's even a mix of Patti LaBelle on this set. PATTI LABELLE for God's Sake!!!

Diplo + Switch = Major Lazer : Pon De Floor

Ok, so I've been gone for a while (more like 3 months), but I have an excuse. I've been busy with a new job, working out, looking for Halle Berries, etc. Nonetheless, I thought I would drop a couple of posts before I head out to Miami for the weekend. First thing's first, we have this bit of heat from Major Lazer. The album, titled "Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do" is a set of tracks produced by Diplo and Switch during a trip to Jamaica. Many of the tracks are certifiable Jamaica tinged goodness, but I feel "Pon De Floor" is crown jewel. If I had one track to use to get folks in the mood for unruly night, this is the one I'd drop. Give it whirl and see for yourself.
