Theo Parrish / Mike Grant – Moods & Grooves Classics Vol.5 [MG050]

Rounding out this iteration of the Moods & Grooves classic series are two of its best selling releases from one of Detroit’s most prolific producer’s, Theo Parrish, and label head Mike Grant. The Mr. G remix of My Soul, My Spirit nets a pretty penny at the online marketplace so if the steep prices have deterred you, now is the time. Chunky was produced during the time Theo was a leader of Detroit’s raw & dirty house sound. In celebration of the Moods & Grooves’ 50th release it’s being offered on limited coloured vinyl.

Lisière Collectif – Les sons de la Lisière [MG055]

Nice moody deep melodic techno tracks on Detroits Moods & Grooves records. Ploiesti Romania area childhood friends Andu Simion, Dan Gheorghe and Bogdan Ardeleanu are inspired by Detroit’s house sound and Berlin’s techno. Their resulting collaboration is best described as “deep techno” and their first release is appropriately on Moods & Grooves known for pushing both envelopes. ‘Les sons de la Lisière’ is a reflection of the beauty and silence of nature found in the suburbs of Ploiesti.

The fourth installment of the classics series features two of the label’s most successful artists Kenny Dixon Jr. and Rick Wade. KDJ’s untitled tracks were previously issued as a limited pressing so here’s your chance to get one if you missed out the first time. Longtime and well respected deep house soldier Rick Wade is featured on the flip side with two classic deep house offerings from his first appearance on Moods & Grooves.

Several years in the making Mike Grant finally completes the second Cool Peepl project.

Andres comes with the remix.

Boomkat product review for:

kyle hall – The Water Is Fine EP

Scrolling back a few years, Mood & Grooves present one of the very earliest (and digital only) Kyle Hall releases for the first time ‘pon wax. ‘The Water Is Fine’ was produced roughly around the same time as his FXHE debut so what you’re hearing is a lovely snapshot of a producer in near-embryonic form. ‘Create Your Existence’ makes a cautious start, taking its time to warm up with silken chords before dropping a thick house beat and sparkling keys. ‘Tomorrow Is The Day’ is nothing short of a stunning house track, the sort of gear you’d expect to hear from Shake in his prime (when in fact this guy was 17 when he wrote it!), and finally ‘One Ribbon’ sails home on a kinked shuffle of raw percussion and head-melting interstellar jazz keys. Lovely.
