Here at Fab
, we want to make sure you're constantly dancefloor ready. That's why every second Wednesday DJ Deko-ze will present From the Speakers, his new DJ column, featuring new DJs and their choice music of the moment. Enjoy responsibly.
Deko-ze has been one of Canada's top DJs for 20 years and currently holds residencies at Guvernment, fly, Footwork, Comfort Zone, Beta (Waterloo) and Hush (BC). He is a reporter for three promo DJ pools, was a radio show host and producer for seven years, is the co-owner of the newly launched Jungle Funk label, and has releases on Deported, KULT, Pacha, Hotbox Digital and more.
He also loves homemade Rice Krispies cake, big burly fellas and naps.
1. Jerome Robins vs The Dolly Rockers – “What About My Love” (Jungle Funk)
The first release from mine and Jerome Robins' Jungle Funk label is a scorcher. The name Johnny Taylor may not sound familiar but the (BIG) sample will! Completing this pack is a killer tech mix from Loko. Already getting massive support from Jorge Montia, Stefane Lippe, Vlada Aasnin, Eddie X, Stephan Grondin, Sergio Fernandez, Stonebridge and more!
2. Mike Newman – “Mustache” (Club Session)
"I have a dream that one day these mutha fuckas will quit pulling and scratching on these itty bitty ass uncircumcised dicks. Ooooh shit!" Thank You Sweet Pussy Pauline!
3. DJ Chus & Pablo Ceballos – “Partenza!” (Stereo)
Sexy drums from one of the best tribal duos around!
4. Deko-Ze – “Ain't Nobody” (Jungle Funk)
Coming soon on our Jungle Funk label: "Ain't Nobody Got Time Fo' Dat!" I nominate YouTube sensation Sweet Brown for President!
5. Pier Pressure – “Somebody Knew (The Crony's mix)” (GuestHouse)
This updates Gloria Gaynor's 1978 classic "I Will Survive" and lifts it to glitterball-disco-house heaven. This went over like a dream at Fly!
6. Jerome Robins & Deko-ze – Walking On Sunshine (Jungle Funk)
Slick, tech-house remix out one of my secret favourite 80s tracks. Also watch out for remixes from Jorge Montia, Whitenoize and Simon Doty! Out March 5th
7. Glender & Reg Project – “Piece Of Heaven” (Low Blow Records)
This is the sort of after hours tribal gear to get lost in.
8. Oscar Gerard – “Journey Into Sound” (demo)
This reminds me of big hairy muscle bears: strong, robust, chunky and gets me sweaty.
9. David Lara – “Por La Noche (Lexvaz & JJ Mullor remix)” (Supermarkt)
Don't you hate when you go to a club / bathhouse and there's a lurking creep who molests you everytime you walk by? At first you politely push his hand away but moments later, he gets all grabby again? "Por La Noche" is sure to get you back in a good mood.
10. Maceo Plex & Jon Da Silva feat. Joi Cardwell – “Love Somebody Else” (Ellum)
Timeless, steamy, seductive, oozing with soul and as welcome as a hung Top.
Old school battle weapon
2004 - Jahkey B – “Heart Attack (Peter Rauhofer Particular remix)” (2004)
A sign of a good song is that it stands the test of time and this one does by leaps and bounds. It works like a dream in str8, bent, house, tribal, commercial and progressive crowds. So good!
