C2E December 2004 – C2E Deep Soulful House Music

This months mix open with a Southport anthem. « Cloud 9″ by Donnie. Great vocals and a huge catchy vybe, timeless. Next up is my introduction to Shur I Khan with « Generations », which mixes really well into Cloud 9 and was a sign of great things to come from a top producer. « Show Me » was the first and probably still my favourite release on the Soul Groove label. Back in 04 Copyright had a much more soulful sound as « Release Yourself » shows. We then head over to the West Coast for a slice of Kaskade with « Safe ». The opening accapella « The Rhythm Of life » at the start of the mix is a teaser for the full on version in the mix. Top shelf soulful house at it’s best with India in top form yet again. Grant Nelson serves up a big piece of piano fueled feel good house with the legendary Ce Ce Rogers. We have a bit of German madness courtesy of Sykes N Sugarstarr with the highly infectious « Release Your Mind ». Next is arguably the most famous release of 2004. Blaze with « Precious Love », sadly overplayed for me, and often in the wrong venues (hence the reason it never appears in any of my « Best Ofs »). Was blinding when it first came out though! More clap your hands happy gospel house with « King of Kings ». Finishing off with the Dutch Duo, Hardsoul and « Committed ». All up quite a chirpy upbeat cheeky chappy type of mix. Happy bouncing!
