Creating a chic atmosphere for your Christmas party comes as easy as popping on a CD. If your style clock stopped at “YMCA,” we are here to give you advice that can turn you into a style guru with a Santa hat.
We’ve sought professional assistance from Fhifan, a fashion icon from Tokyo who has recently been seen spinning at all the best parties in Seoul. His latest acquisitions include Mr. V’s “Welcome Home” (Defected Records) and Denis Ferrer’s “The World As I See It” (King Street Sounds). Both albums were released just last month and are fast selling out everywhere.
At the top of the game for original productions of house music is the globetrotting DJ/producer Denis Ferrer. His sleek, soulful and lyrical afro-house influenced productions have turned up on leading house music labels in the U.S. and Europe. His discography boasts collaborations with highly respected labels, from Sfere, Ibadan, Large and King Street to Basic Recordings. He is a leading remixer for the new generation of deep house and all his music can be guaranteed to produce a smooth Xmas groove.
You can sample “The World As I See It” at the Web site, http://musicstore.connect.com. CDs are currently available at the Web site, www.defected.com.
Mr. V’s double-album “Welcome Home” can guarantee massive fun so long as you have a sound system. Mr.V, aka Victor Font, is a rising-star artist who comes from New York’s lower east side.
His debut album, “Welcome Home,” is a gorgeous modern-day cosmopolitan mix of original productions; Manhattan, house, jazz, hip hop, Latin, R&B and rap are all encapsulated in one body of work. To sample the music, visit the Web site, www.dancetracksdigital.com, and search for Mr. V. For buying the CD go to www.juno.co.uk.
