Artist: TJ Kong feat. Ovasoul7
Title: Compost Black Label # 111
Cat No: CPT 434-1
Format: 12″ / Download
Breathing classic deep house. This is deep house at its best. Including tip top remixes by Filippo Moscatello (perhaps his best remix ever!) and Russian wunderkind Dima Studitsky. Kinda accident: The Prescription Mix is 9:09 min. and the FNM Stripped Mix is 8:08 min., we are not sure, if planned or not, but maybe it’s worth waiting for a 3:03 min. version!
In the past, dutchman TJ Kong usually appeared together with his production partner in crime Nuno Dos Santos. They already released several Black Label 12inches and the album „After Dark, My Sweet“ in 2010. Now, TJ Kong is back with his very own „Sweet Sweet Lovin’“, which features the sensitive soulful vocals of Ovasoul7. This exceptional singer lent his voice already to the works of Deetron, Motorcitysoul, DJ Spinna and Slope.
In 2013, TJ Kong, in coop with Eric De Man, dropped the „Luid EP“ on Kirk Degiorgio’s Applied Rhythmic Technology label (ART) and the „Where The Wild Ales Are Pt.1“ maxi on Jamie Anderson’s Artform imprint, followed by a second one this year.
A propos Wild Ales: TJ Kong recently was busy with setting up his own brewpub in Eindhoven.
Well known Berlin resident producer Filippo Moscatello aka FNM is in the biz since the mid 90ies and on a very very good roll currently. His FNM releases on Save The Black Beauty are in demand and rocking the floors all over the planet. Moscatello released two albums, one on Gigolo in 2001, and one on Moodmusic in 2009 and a bunch of sought after 12“s on Gigolo, Eskimo Recordings, MoodMusic, SafeTheBlackBeauty (STBB).
Dima Studitsky is a russian fellow and one of Moscow’s underground club scene honchos, who runs some of the most legendary club nights in Moscow (“The Cult”, “Propaganda”, “Shanti” etc.) He conviced the Compost crew big time with his marveillous remix for Rainer Trueby’s „Welcome To Our World“ last year (Black Label #92), which landed in the record cases of King Britt, Peter Kruder, Charles Webster, Fabrice Lig, Tedd Patterson, André Lodemann and more… He also released remixes on King Street and on Sonarkollektiv, a highly acclaimed rework for Jazzanova’s „I Can See“ feat. Ben Westbeech.
