Wow, what an incredible year for vinyl. There’s been a continued resurgence of quality disco edit, plenty re-released originals, interesting deep house, some slo-mo and increased downbeat pressure. All of which will be featured in the forthcoming weekly Spacecasts, by our resident beat pilot Owen Oldskool, in an attempt to share more quality beats with the peeps. But for for now, as last year, check out the top five breakers of the past 12 months…
ONRA-DEEP IN THE NIGHT EP (FOOLSGOLD)
Onra picks up where his Long Distance LP left off with a next level EP of future urban. How this track hasn’t dominated the airwaves in 2012 is anyones guess. Another quality gem from the underground for the underground…
LAZARE HOCHE-LUV THANG (LH EDITS)
Outrageously fat rework of First Choice’s super heavyweight party bomb. This edit just never fails to make people move and never, ever, gets tired.
SIR OWN-HOOKED (KONS NITE TIME REMIX) (GOLD FINGERS)
What a year for the Basic Fingers label. We count no fewer than six top quality releases in 2012 and then some. This treat features a full video edit courtesy of some chops taken from 70′s cult classic movie Coonskin. Exceptional work…
JAZZY JENS-C U IN LA (BASIC FINGERS)
Beautiful yearning disco originally by Mascara featuring Vandross on the lead. Epic pianos aplenty, this was the classic hands in the air tune of 2012.
COLE MEDINA-I LIKE YOU (FOTO)
What end of year list would be complete without a little Medina? This time Cole gets on the sleazy downbeat with a powerful reworking of Debarge. Super Heavyweight.
