    Default Dance & House With NO VOCAL!

    Hi guys,

    I was just wondering if you could give me some info on what artists, labels, etc I can chase down to get tracks that have a good club beat like dance or house with no vocals in them?

    To explain what I want to do, I just want to have a separate Acapella of a song for example Somebody Told Me by The Killers and have a good Dance track that I can blend it with?

    I'm just trying to find stuff that is produced purely for this kind of thing?

    If it's available on Vinyl that's even better!

    Thanks heaps guys!

    Try some minimal or prog house?
    I used to link music in my signature but nowadays I don't.

    Using your example, i think electro house would suit best. I have a remix of "Mr Bright Side" around somewhere and it works quite well.
    Minimal= up to fuck all but good for three decks action.
    Prog House= also good for three decks action but generally more funky.

    Thanks Jester!

    I don't want three decks I just want one with the music and the other with the acapella!

    I'll check it all out!

    There are lots of different sub-genres of house. What do you want? Uplifting? Deep? Soulful? Just browse beatport and discogs, you'll find a ton of stuff there.

    But if you insist on having recommendations, here are a few:

    Artists:
    - Pepe Bradock
    - John Daly
    - Patrice Scott
    - Delano Smith
    - Anthony "Shake" Shakir
    - Levon Vincent

    Labels:
    - Driftwood (extremely hard to find, but really great tracks)
    - Plak Records
    - Systematic Recordings
    - Plastic City

    Well, the stuff mentioned above isn't really funky or soulful - more deep underground stuff. Can't really help you out in that department.

    But like I said, search beatport and discogs.

    I blended Overnight by Hudson Mohawke with the a capella of Overnight Celebrity by Twista the other night, and my mate was blown away... It did sound pretty sick if I'm honest!
