Armed and dangerous with 4 giant bullets, ‘Moody Warehouse Music Vol 1′ opens with the steamy Latin house flavoured ‘Going Get Got’, featuring an infectious „Gonna make you hotŠ“ vocal hook over a feel good filtered groove. Turning up the thermostat, the tribal edged ‘Gone Gong’ pulsates with mad, driving percussive beat science and a haunting tribal chant. ‘Jam Hot’ is a slice of jackin power-house, giving a nod to Beats International’s classic ‘Dub Be Good To Me’, with a vocal sample riding over an insane hi-hat driven groove, dirty bass stabs and topped with an eerie breakdown.

Phil Weeks and Ladybird are „Searching4Love“

‘Searching4Love’ is the fruit of a musical union between 2 Parisian House heads, DJ/producer Phil Weeks and vocalist Ladybird, who together have cooked up a delicious slice of deep and soulful house for Robsoul. The song came about after Phil set about toying with samples (as our Monsieur Weeks does!) from RAMP’s version of the classic Roy Ayers ‘Everybody Loves The Sunshine’. Phil crafted a subtle key hook over a hot cymbal drenched deep groove, before Ladybird added her seductive vocal magic, creating a deep house bomb to kick start Summer 2014. Deemed to get the soul-kids shuffling is a bonus promo ­ the sweet dusty vinyl flavoured ‘You Want My Love’, laced with a ‘way too cute’ girly vocal sample, drizzled over a platter of infectious flute, piano and funky guitar hooks.
