Vince Watson – Every Soul Needs A Guide [Everysoul]
It’s been a long time since it was announced that Vince Watson was working on a new album called, "Every Soul Needs A Guide", but the wait was worth it.
The new album features a range of gorgeous downbeat and more upbeat organic efforts that charm on various levels. It is a proper album as opposed to a collection of club tracks and the level of musicality lends Every Soul Needs A Guide to home listening.
This album is yet another impressive addition to his discography and a reminder that he doesn’t make Detroit music, he just makes music.
London-based Sect Records create technoid grooves for the mind, body and feet. They draft in like-minded souls from elsewhere to help them out where necessary. The collective go darker and deeper than most, creating the sort of brilliant deep and techy grooves that resonate with your very soul. Disc one is the synthier of the two and features winners such as Jolka’s blissful "Two (Going On)" and D-Knox’s intense "I’m Sorry Remix". Disc 2 is a little less melodious and slightly more hard-hitting, where peaks include Casual Violence’s bewitching "Acceptance Of The Fact At Hand" and Fanon Flowers’ hypnotic "Invisible Life". It’s All For You is a winning technoid collection.
Sect will release It’s All For You on September 16th, 2011.
It doesn’t sound like too long ago, but the electronic music industry has come a long way since the nineties. Today, August 1st, 2011, marks twenty years of Soma Records. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it ?
On the 1st of August, 1991, Soma Records released its first record, "Eterna" by Slam / "I.B.O." by Rejuvination, a great track and great split release with some Detroit and/or Chicago-rooted dance music. Nowadays, Soma is, as they describe themselves, one of the world’s leading electronic dance music labels.
Slam – Eterna
Rejuvination – I.B.O.
So far, the label has managed to release more than 80 albums and over 300 singles, from the likes of Slam, Funk D’Void, Alex Smoke, and The Black Dog, to name just a few. The Glasgow-based label continues to wow the electronic music world with their music, without a doubt.
Happy Birthday !
