MAKIN078 – Alton Miller featuring Sky Covington ‘Choose To Believe’

Our next release sees a second single from Detriots Alton Miller and Sky Covington, a soulful gem called Choose To Believe. We loved Alton’s first release that we put out last year and we couldn’t resist this collaboration with Sky who we’ve been an admirer of as both have worked together before on Alton label.
Born in Chicago and raised in Detroit, Alton’s early roots in soul music led to an affinity for club culture that was the staple of the motor city and Chicago at the time. Developing his DJing skills under the influence of house music’s founding fathers like Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy, Larry Levan and Timmy Regisford, he eventually opened his own dance club The Music Institute of Detroit with like minded friends Chez Damier and George Baker in 1988.
This release is available on Traxsource from Monday 12th February.


MAKIN076 – Hallex M & DJ Fudge ft. Omar ‘Ding Ding’ (DJ Beloved Remix)

Glad to have back once again with a fresh remix, our good friend and producer DJ Beloved from BPM Productions.

Ding Ding was first released in 2014 and was a big club hit for us. DJ Fudge has long been a force in the house music scene since his Trouble Men days on the well-respected Kif Recording, and alongside his good friend Hallex M who has carved a notch in the new breed of rare talent over the past years. Both guys had longed to work with UK soul legend Omar Lyefook. And in 2013, their dream came true when Omar visited Hong Kong where Hallex and DJ Fudge both currently reside and there they worked on two tracks which still have music heads talking.

Both DJ Fudge and Hallex are prolific producers in their own right at the moment and you should certainly check out Hallex M’s new Soul Odyssey album which recently dropped on Groove Odyssey Records.

MAKIN077 – DJ Kemit Presents The Lounge Lizards Starring Jill Rock Jones

We are now proud to welcome along DJ Kemit’s debut EP to our Makin’ Moves Label. Presenting The Lounge Lizards ft. Jill Rock Jones.

DJ KEMIT is also internationally known for his production work as one-half of KemeticJust. Within a year of joining forces, he and Justin Chapman, aka Just One, had their first release, picked up by King Street,one of the worlds biggest house music labels in 2014 courtesy of house music legend Lil Louis.

KemeticJust continued with two dozen releases on labels such as Nite Grooves, Yoruba Records, Giant Step, Diaspora Recordings, Wave Music, Bombay Records and Play Records that are still praised within the underground house music scene. KemeticJust’s trademark deeper-than-deep sound is made of lush, moody instrumentation that blends with airy acoustic guitar licks, beautiful melodies and ethereal, sweet vocals. Think Larry Heard sensitivity with more dancefloor kick.

How did DJ KEMIT land such massive talent for his debut? His penchant for impeccably crafted songs and honouring his collaborators genius, a constant refrain from any artist he’s worked with.

While EVERLASTING recently has taken center stage, DJ KEMIT has long been a sought-after producer for remixes such as Still by ERRO, On the Beach by Leon Ware, and the 4Evermore remix for David’s EP Location, Location, Location.

Every time, KEMIT finds a way to draw even more emotion from already heart-touching songs, or bump just enough bounce into surprising dancefloor steppers. We hope you all enjoy this musical craftsman as much as we do here at Makin’ Moves Records.

All songs recorded and mixed by DJ Kemit for Kemit Muzik, LLC at Kemit Audio Labs, Atlanta Ga

All songs mastered by Daz I Kue for Bugz In The Attic & Daz I Kue Productions.

We welcome two new faces to the label for our latest release, singer Dawn Souluvn Williams and DJ Wali B from New Jersey.

Dawn Souluvn Williams crossed over into the Soulful House music world in 2009 and began to blossom almost over night. Discovered on Facebook by Moises Modestro, she recorded and co-wrote “Release” aka “Funky Beep” with Moises and Duane Hardin. From there she wrote and recorded “Live, Love, Laugh” in 2009 produced by Bruce Jeffers of Phunk Farmers Music. “Live, Love, Laugh” opened doors for Dawn around the world and she wrote and recorded her first Charted and #1 Hit title “New Me” produced by Jonny Montana.

This is Wali Bs first move into producing and with Tiger Wilson on synths it works the floor so well. Were pretty sure this is not going to be the last production that we will be hearing from Wali!

This very infectious piece of soulful house has been a big hit on the Makin Moves show for the last few months and in the cd wallets of the likes of Louie Vega, Jihad Muhammad, Danny Krivit, Joe Claussell.
