Phonique – The Passion with Kiloo

Takent from mbeat:

Seldom does a track have such a story behind it as Kiloo & Phoniques ‚The Passion! It was three or four years ago in an online Deep-House forum that this warming tale began. Featured during a particularly on-form Laurent Garnier mix, came a track that immediately caused quite a stir. A whos who of Deep-House heads from Ame to Dixon were up in arms about this ‚phantom track, that no-one could place. Could it be an old undiscovered rarity that theyd all missed, or a new, unreleased, secret production…? Eventually, a track-listing was provided for Garniers mix, and the artist was revealed to be the little-known but instantly respected ‚Kiloo aka Pascal Saussac. Phoniques connection with the artist was forged after another of the newcomers tracks, ‚The Game of Love, was signed tothe Parisian label Plays Cool. Having already been well respected on the French house scene, Phonique was asked to remix the track and so their relationship grew. Originally, ‚The Passion was sent to Laurent Garniers F-Comm imprint, but remained unsigned, and so for a long time it had no home, however Phonique always believed that it deserved a platform for release to the world. Now in 2008, this hit, four-years-in-the-making, has been completely re-recorded by Phonique and his studio partner Alex Krüger, and Kiloos magical track is ready to start the message boards filling up once again!For the remixes, we remain happily within the Deep-House genre, as first choice remixers Trickski, who supported the first two Ladies & Gentlemen releases in almost every set, maintain their ‚Members of the Trick trademark style. They fill the role with a fine re-work that honours the original, and unfolds it into an intricately dubbed hypnotic journey. The second round of remix duties are beautifully fulfilled by long term pals Dplay and Manuel Tur. Originally part of those historic forum discussions years before, they have since risen through the ranks to become some of the most respected

ESG – Dance


Lovin’ the bass hook on this track.   ESG (Emerald Sapphire & Gold) was an all girl group from South Bronx, New York circa 1978 to 1990’s.   They mix Soul, Funk, Disco, and New Wave all into their own dance vibe, which would probably be labeled “Deep House” now-a-days.   This track was originally released in 1982 on ESG’s EP titled, “ESG Says Dance To The Beat of Moody”.
