It's been about 2 months since this last episode of OTBP. This one is the shortest one I've done and it is without any commentary. I made it with the mix cd in mind for those of you who wish to burn it to an 80 minute disc.
It starts off with a couple older tracks and one of my personal favorites Searchin' by 33 ⅓ Queen, who is DJ Mandrill from my hometown of DC. When I did a little research I found out that it samples Searchin' For Some Lovin' by Debbie Trusty and A Guy Called Gerald's Blow Your House Down. Throughout the next several tracks the energy picks up quite a bit. Another jammin' track I still love that I brought out of retirement for this mix is My House by Aaron Carl. While the original mix is the most famous, I love this dub. Tracks number 8 & 9 bring a techie feel to the mix and an old school Roland TB-303 acid line. I have to give credit to LBS for turning me on to Solid Groove and specifically Won't Stop on track 12. For those of you who want a trip in the way back machine, check out House Nation. It was originally released in 1986. Speaking of giving credit, I definitely have to give a shout out to Johnson for showing me Kelly G's Go Down Moses. It's a very cool vocal house track. The last four tracks bring the vibe to a deeper level. Hope you enjoy.
I have some other good news… I located the missing OTBP episode 5 and will be posting it soon.
