1."Time" by DJ Nermin feat. Ayaah [Nermin re-mix] This was the release that established their sound and the respect DJ Nermin and vocalist extraordinaire, Ayaah now enjoys. It's now an underground classic. Released July 2005.
2."The Rhythm Of Life" by The Keith Thompson Project [UBP re-mix] orig. prod by Tuta Aquino. A confirmed classic 2002 remix by UBP, a Jazz N Groove remix was also part of the package among others. The original was released in 1992 believe or not.
3."Music" by Black Coffee. First released by Waking Monster (Aug 2005) as a single taken from the Worlds Collide vol.1 album, it established Black Coffee's name in the house music market (a member of the group Shana) it established him as a producer and has gone on to win South Africa's equivalent of a Grammy.
4."Borders Don't Matter" by Keith Thompson [Ralf Gum Classic Vocal mix] One of the stand out remixes from a two part 2007 release which also included Phil Hooton, and Central Ave remixes. Musical butter!
5."I Forgive" by DJ Nermin feat. Ayaah, a gem of a release that was under appreciated but now being rediscovered and respected. Soulful and rhythmically, tingling. Released Dec. 20066.
6. "Malombo" by Mahoota [Orig. mix] A classic in South Africa and exposed to the world by Waking Monster, it's a must have if not already in your collection. Check out the tribal remix by Keith Thompson. Released Oct. 2004.
7. "Prescription" by Ole Uncle Falker (prod. Brooklyn Blak) This quirky, track forshadowed the retro house style so popular today yet was release in Aug. 2005 after being held back for 2 years because we weren't sure people were ready for it. Ready now!
8."Africa In Your Veins" by Keith Thompson [Christian Horbostel Timba Dub] Orig prod. By Keith Thompson, the original version was an anthem in Africa, along with the Mahoota remix, and the Hornbostel remix spread the vibe internationally. Released 2005.
9."Ora Cabessa" by Bazwaana [ Thompson reconstruction] prod. By JerahA serious cut up and reconstruction of Free My Soul, this drives them made on the floor. Serious DJ weapon. Released July 2006.
10."Let Love" by DJ Nermin feat. Ayaah [Rulers Of The Deep mix]Released 2006 on limited pressed vinyl, it sold out in one week and became an underground favorite immediately.
11."When I Fall" by Lez [Booker T Vocal mix] prod by Demor (of Shana now enjoy wider exposure in Europe from the Ralf Gum remixes of Uyangichomela). Booker T's remix has become the definitive version by connoisseur of quality, pumping house. Released January 2008.

Enjoy this first in a series of essentials to come. Be on the alert. The monster roars again soon.
