His latest release see’s him team up with the excellent Delusions of Grandeur who have also been on a roll recently with classy productions by Tee Mango, Andy Ash and Norm De Plume.

The The Soul’s Return EP features three track, heavy on the piano and taking in everything from euphoric groove and 80’s influenced drums to G funk style basslines. It’s a great combination of sounds which as reverential as it’s is sounds is completely fresh and now.

Make sure you check it out!

Westcoast Goddess – 11 Inspirational House Tracks

1. Terrence Parker – Now is the time

This track’s gospel chords inspired my first successful house track in ’96. Thank you Terrence.

2. Gloworm – Carry Me Home

Happy memories..

3. Prince – Gett off (Housestyle)

I saw an ad for a Prince concert on TV in the late 80s and was absolutely entranced and a Prince nut from thenceforth. When this track came out I remember thinking wow Prince really got the hang of house music only later learning it was Steve Silk Hurley’s remix.

4. Underground Resistance – The Theory

If Prince was the Mozart of the 80s then Mike was the Beethoven of the 90s.

5. Ian Pooley – The Brickenkopf at 7am

It’s the mixture of sadness, joy and beauty..

6. Black Science Orchestra – Leroy’s Hustle

Ashley Beadle’s best record (in my opinion)

7. Kerri Chandler – Red Sun

Kerri’s back catalog is so incredibly rich that his obscure tracks are just as good as his hits. He exemplifies a life devoted to a calling.

8. Joe Smooth – I’m Not Givin Up

This tune is just beautiful and so full of longing with a perfect and musical acid line.

9. Ten City – That’s The Way Love Is

Marshall Jefferson and Byron Stingily remixed by Steve Silk Hurley. This song gave me hope in dark times, showing me what house music could be, and inspired me to want to make joyful and emotive music.

10. Hanna – Even Flow

Hanna is a genre unto himself and has heavily influenced the modern wave of jazz house artists coming from Detroit and Atlanta.

11. Larry Heard – Saga of the Evil Queen

Overlooked Larry Heard masterpiece.
