Movin' Records Launches Digitally

As someone who's old enough to remember the early days of the house scene, Movin' Records is a label I was already familiar with having purchased a few of their releases on vinyl back in the day. It's great to see their catalogue of music which includes some absolute gems finally getting a digital release. No doubt it will help expose some of those tunes to a new, younger audience who weren't lucky enough to experience the music first hand. For the uninitiated, the label's discography includes tracks and mixes from leading lights such as Kerri Chandler, Tony Humphries Boyd Jarvis and Blaze amongst many others and became synonymous with the distinctive New Jersey Garage sound. Check out a few of the many great releases below:

Blast From The Past - Jetlag

It's difficult to believe that it's been fifteen years since this surfaced on vinyl on the prolific (at the time) Soulfuric Trax. The weapon of choice for me was always the Axwell & BT Essence Dub which also featured recently on the Jazz'n'Groove Housemasters release on Defected.

Sir LSG Long Player Review

Sir LSG - Moving Circles [GoGo Music]

The latest release from Ralf GUM's GoGo Music is the eagerly anticipated long player from South Africa's Sir LSG. There's an emphasis on musicianship and artistry that doesn't rely on any gimmicks or clich├ęd sounds. High on the originality stakes, the music makes no attempt to sound like anything you've heard from anyone else nor does it make reference to specific influences. You can expect a soulful journey tinged with jazzy vibes and underpinned with gentle but gnawing African rhythms. Every single one of the vocalists deliver performances that sit beautifully into the productions, oozing with soul and emotion while the rhythms persuade you to move your hips and tap your toes (at the very least). As a project, the album has taken four years to reach fruition an trust me it's worth great value for every single minute that's been spent lovingly crafting each of the tracks.

Moving Circles is out now and available to buy now through Traxsource and selected other digital music stores. Check out samples of each of the tracks in the embedded player below.
