tinsley charts

Intro by Brent Crampton ~ Photo by Don Edmundson  ~ Don is back again to keep us up to date on what's hot. Many of these tracks aren't set to hit the record shelves anytime soon, so keep your eyes peeled to see what you'll be playing and jackin' to in a few. Just in case you forgot, Mr. Tinsley is the house brotha of St. Louis. Don is also a member of Urban Jazz Naturals. UJN has just had their track "How Can I" remixed and released by JT Donaldson on the Gallery Music Group label. In addition, Don will be teaming up with Ben Armstromg, to release "Finger Funkin Good" featuring a Jason Hodges remix on Houston, Texas' Uniform Recodings and with DJ ION on "le Swing" a Urban Jazz Naturals re-work featuring a DJ Mes remix, on Austin's Headset label.

Demarkus Lewis feat: Lena Wade - Your Touch - Fair Park Pure Demarkus goodness! This track has lovely textures and a great vocal to boot. Highly Recommended!

Jonn Hawley - Steppin Out - OM CDR once a bootleg now an official part of the OM catalog, this tune gives Kaskade's original a funky upgrade, as only Jonn Hawley does.

Don Tinsley feat Kate Manfull - All Day - CDR A good vocalist is hard to find and this one was no exception. From a church in St. Louis, to the studio, Kate can belt it. Jackin-Jazz-Tech is most common description for the "nu-school jazz" surrounding the vocal.

Jimmy Cook - footsteps - stompy.com - Whoa. Who Da Thunk It?.. Springfield Missouri on the map for house music. But alas Jimmy cook comes out of the hoods with another heater. There are several remixes available at stompy.

Sound Navigators - The Vibe - Olive - Catch The Vibe is one of the hottest piano jams in existence. There is more energy in this tune than a herd of elephants. You better have some serious business to back this baby, cause it will leave people worked up every time.

Jake Childs - Soul Food - Phono Graffiti - Soul inspiration! Quirky, bumpin, funky master piece of work. Almost every time I play this hits the deck.

Morgan Page - What Can You Do For Me - Harmonious Discord - Harmonious Discord, killin it again with the follow-up to Naughty glances. This release is on the deeper vocal side with a sweet Demarkus Lewis Remix.

Pat Nice - My Life with The Thrill Kill Kult - Daisy chain for Satan OH MY GOD! I bought the original when it came out in 1990 and0 have played layered and beat juggled it every since. Then the0 news came down the wire that Pat Nice has done an official remix0 of it. Wow I thought. And Wow it is!

DJ Mes - Lie Detector Blues - Guest House Sanfrandisco housing to the max! Funky Bass line snappng programming and plenty of low-end to keep a backend shakin.

Nick Santillan - Keep Your Head Up High - Late Night Essentials - white Classic vocal house at its finest.
Nick Santillan brings it by the truckload with his; the first release on Late Night Essentials new Sub Label - Deep Cuts.
