Some initial soul tunes from Incognito's excellent new album. Then moving towards deep house, via hiphop.
Incognito - Maysa does this well (track 1). I also like "When the sun.." because the breaks remind me of some of the old aj classics (like BNH).
Jay-Z - not so much for Jaz-Z maybe, I'm a D-Influence fan.
Grey - Should I hide that I also like commercial hits like this...?
Booka - not that far from Trentemøller. Booka Shade is a German techno/electrohouse duo, Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier. See bookashade.com.
Tellier - yes, he took part in the Eurovision Song Contest.
JDC - I grew up loving these uptempo mixers. They are not so easy to find now though. Have a try at youtube. According to that page: "JDC Records was an important record distributor during the golden years of dance music (1976-1990). It was originally located in San Pedro, California and owned by Jim and Dale Callon The company name came from their initials, JDC. "

20 seconds from each song. Cover shot: surprisingly good almond (tosca) pie. 7/10 points.
