Love and Music fit together like chicken & waffles or kitties & catnip, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone on this planet who can’t live without some form of either. On this fourth installment of King Street‘s Valentine’s Day Collection 2014, we venture into the many moods of the day, and explore some of the light and dark whims of both worlds. For those who like their love (& house music) a little tough, we got a few cuts that’ll please a few black hearts, while pumpy mid-moody remixes get tossed in and feel-good groovy gorgeous melodies give the listener the full spectrum of Love and House Music’s versatility. Soulful stunners like DJ Meme‘s remix of Namy ft Stephanie Cook‘s “Im Not Ashamed,” Sean McCabe‘s re-rub of Kimara Lovelace‘s classic “I Luv You More,” DJ Spen‘s AfterBirth Mix of Heather Johnson‘s “Under My Skin,” Chris Perez & Louie Gorbea feat. Queen AaMinah‘s “Somethings Gotta Give,” DJ Pope & Lynette Smith‘s “Addicted,” smooth you out, while deep and tech housey sounds by Jerome Robins feat. Linda Newman “Real Love” (Soneec Remix), Alex Ander & Deep Grounder feat. Virág “Tonight,” and Ananda Project “Falling For You” (G-Pal‘s New York Vocal Mix) make the heart grow somber. More aggressive tracks like Rui Da Silva‘s Mix of Ananda Project feat. Nicola Hitchcock “Can You Find The Heart,” Alex Kenji‘s mix of Malena “Amame,” Noferini & Marini‘s mix of “This Luv Is Real” by Jamico feat. Jackie Cohen, show the darker side of love on the dance floor. Eighteen tracks in all fit according to the many tempers of Love & Music. Nonetheless, we hope your Valentine’s Day is Happy and Beautiful!
