Back in 2001 Lucy Pearl released their “Without You” single containing a super silky remix from Dwele and some rugged vocal additions from Detroit’s legendary Phat Katt. I remember being the biggest Dwele fan around that time especially after his immaculate two productions on the Bahamdia’s “BB Queen” EP. He was truly one some serious shit back then and I feel as if this remix never got the attention it deserved. That’s why we thought this would make a perfect Slept on Sundays joint for this weekend!
It is my pleasure to introduce you to a new duo from Paris of whom I had never heard before. Stanley Bloom (who hit us up via Facebook) & Mike Ro Wave very recently released their new “Pacific Shore” project which is an audiovisual journey inspired by a road trip through the state of California. Most of the music on this album stems from Funk, Soul and Hip Hop, but has a few electronic elements as well. The lovely miss Sarah Linhares from Montréal features on two songs of which “Road 1” is our favorite pick. We are giving away this one away as a free download, but for the rest of the album you need to visit of course.
You guys might remember the “AnaloG LovE” release from a few years ago. Well the Canadian duo, Vlooper & Modlee, is back with their brand new “Sunwalk” EP. Modlee was clearly inspired by Erykah Badu on this EP, but whether that’s a good, neutral or bad thing I leave up to you to decide. The EP is out and available on the Soulection Bandcamp page at a ‘name your price’ price.

Wow…we’re super late with this new single from Detroit’s Soul crooner Dwele , but better late than never right? He’s working on his sixth album as we speak and although his sound has gotten a little slicker each album, I’m still convinced there will be some music on there we’ll be glad to inform you about. On “What Profit” we do kinda miss the old sexy Dwele style of production, but even such a clean song as this doesn’t sound too bad at all in the world of modern day Soul music. A trip to will help you get your hands on this new single.

On the last day of May we’re treating you to another “Glimmering Fractions” mix. Some gems are hidden below the surface and are hard to see with the naked eye. At times this means you’ll have to look closely. Just like this emerald hidden inside calcite. We invite you to listen to this one on Soundcloud (download available) or Mixcloud (stream only).
Byron the Aquarius dropped his latest “Aquarialistical Seduction” Vol. 1 album featuring the likes of Olivier Daysoul, Ahu, Oddisee, Onra, Porsche Smith and more. Nice soulful collection of music with a few jams we already knew, but also something brand new. We suggest you head on over to Byron’s Bandcamp page to listen to the entire release.

Team Moovmnt is filled with joy that summer has started. Now DVA must have had the same feeling when he decided earlier today to let loose “In The Sunshine” featuring Isabelle Bentink. This cut didn’t make it on to the “Pretty Ugly” album, so ‘it’s a demo’ (no EPMD).

Yesterday my man Dean High from Deventer hit us up with this wonderful “Raw Take’s Minimix” volume 1. Together with The Monopunks he recorded some niceness and here is a preview of more to come. Not much more info at the moment, but I’m sure you’ll be hearing more in the future. Snatch the free download while it’s up and enjoy!
Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie are back with their new “Wasser” EP. Honestly I’m in need of a little water at the moment, because summer seems to have started here in Amsterdam. Very nice 4 track release on Soulection on a ‘name your price’ basis. Listen to “Stiller See” featuring miss Soia below and download the EP over at their Bandcamp page please.
