House Shoes – Low Key Source, Vol​​.​​ 2 (Mixed By House Shoes)

Also Available On: Limited Edition Compact Disc

Sydney label Low Key Source drops their second mix CD showcasing the label’s catalogue and this time expertly mixed by Detroit’s own House Shoes, CEO of Street Corner Music. Since the inception of Low Key Source in late 2016 the label has released forward thinking Hip Hop, Reggae & Soul music with a heavy focus on production.

Included in this mix are tracks from Australia’s Plutonic Lab, Vida Sunshyne and Allysha Joy, New Zealand’s Ladi6, Raiza Biza, Haz & Miloux along with the UK’s Children Of Zeus who team up with Black Milk for “Won’t End Well”. Producers such as Apollo Brown, Tall Black Guy Productions, Stro Elliot, Eric Lau and Kase Avila are included in the mix too. Also featured are exclusive tracks from House Shoes, Sndtrk, Tenacity and J-1 AKA The Deer.

HOUSE SHOES
House Shoes, AKA Michael Buchanan, isn’t concerned with popularity. Unfailingly outspoken, the Detroit-born DJ and producer condemns and exalts music with equal vigour. If he hates your record, expect soul-atomizing honesty. If he loves it, he’ll play it endlessly. House Shoes spun Dilla beats ad infinitum at famed Detroit venues like St. Andrews Hall, and during his years in the Motor City, House Shoes also championed rappers like Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson and Quelle Chris, far before they were known to the general public.

House Shoes – The Gift: The Jay Dee Unreleased EP (House Shoes Records 1997)

In 1997, Jay Dee was the still new kid on the block. With the success of singles like Runnin’ (Pharcyde), and Stakes is High (De La Soul), he had his own undeniable sound, but the majors still weren’t sold. This is proof of that. Jay was solicited by a lot of majors to do remixes for artists on their rosters. Time and time again, they would another route.
The joints he was coming up with were fucking nuts, but to no avail. In one case, he was led to believe that one of his mixes got thru, only to see another producers remix when the 12″ showed up at Record Time. I told him fuck it I wanna put it out. He trusted me. I had never put a record out.Got an investor.
Then I made a phone call. Chris Manak, aka Peanut Butter Wolf, was my rep at TRC distribution in California. I was working at Street Corner Music ordering records from him every week. I got the #’s from him. Sent the masters over and we had a record. The first pressing was on blue vinyl. Limited to 1500 copies. Gone.
Second press was on green vinyl. Gone.
I also learned to listen to test presses on multiple turntables. There was a skip in the middle of the fucking Woo Hah rmx that did NOT SKIP on my 1200. Swear to god I had the only 12 that could play that shit. It skipped on EVERY other turntable in the world. Fucked up. Check your test pressings on a few setups. But, that’s fixed now. Remastered by Dave Cooley directly from a sealed blue copy. Why? Because the plates broke at the plant, and I lost the master in a flood 3 years later. That’s why. Not giving up the HQ files tho. Fuck a bootlegger.

Enjoy the Gift…

House Shoes – THE KING JAMES VERSION VOL. 2: The New Testament

In celebration of James “J Dilla” Yancey’s 40th birthday,
House Shoes presents the first half of the follow up to his
critically acclaimed “The King James Version” mix, paying
tribute to one of, if not the best producer in hip-hop’s history
by strolling through some more of the records that were mined
by Dilla for his productions. From jazz, to soul, to moog and
electronica and more, this mix serves as a reminder to show how
broad the range of music that inspired him was. Taken from all original vinyl. No youtube rips. No mp3s. None of that bulllshit.
