jenny and andres,i have been sort of busier with work, but i wanted to for sure expand on the theme of my last email while it was still relatively fresh.

kingdom’s new mix has a great remix he did of a classic diva house song which comes in at 22:00.  his interpretation of black box’ “i don’t know” kicks in around .  Here is the original:

Black Box, “I Don’t Know Anybody Else” ゲット [DL]

andres, you asked me for songs similar to “someday.”  that song is classic chicago house of late 80’s early 90’s.  i really don’t have that much classic chicago house.  just a few compilations. trax records: 20th anniversary collection is particularly amazing.  the best song that i have that is similar to “someday” is “as always” by farley jackmaster funk presents ricky dillard.  it has that gospel vibe that i really love.

Farley Jackmaster Funk Presents Ricky Dillard, “As Always” ゲット [DL]

i am more versed in the cheesy female diva house songs of early to mid 90’s.  i made my diva house power: faith (in the power of love) hour last march.  we had a really fun party to premiere it, but i never posted it on the internet.  at some point it will be posted on, but i don’t know when.  anyway, check it out.  it is a good introduction to the genre, perfect for a party of “artisanal binge drinking,” and pretty good to listen to at the gym or on a long run.
