Tony Cooney is another of our residents in this Room a man who has almost single handedly ireinvented the Nu Jazz /Jazzy dancefloor experience as seen at Freestylin' & Fro-disia events his electricity and music when he is behind the decks is a well known phenomena in the north west.Tony also does a monthly Freestylin' Show on Starpoint Radio with Colin Curtis.
Our Very Special Guest on the Soulful House tip on this first event is the prolific and talented house producer / remixer Dj Sean McCabe !

House music producer Sean McCabe may be a new name too many people. If you look around a little you will find that Sean, age of 23 from South Wales UK, has an amazing list of credits to his name.
Since the age of 13, Sean has had a huge passion for music production and DJ’ing. Being influenced by radio shows like Danny Rampling’s Love Groove Dance Party and Deli-G’s The Touch, his love for soulful dance music grew immensely, inspired by the music he was hearing at the time, along with a growing interest in production and writing music, it became apparent that this was the right direction to be heading in.
He has Produced and remixed artists such as Roland Clarke, SuSu Bobien, Todd Terry, Quentin Harris and Stephanie Cooke. Sean’s first releases dropped in 2003 working along side Southern Divide. This saw releases on Mountain Records, Device Records, Soulfuric Deep, and Fluential Records; soon after, he met Chicago’s Big Ed of the legendary Blak Beatniks and began collaborating on new original songs and projects; from this, the idea for Melodious Recordings was born in 2005. This new partnership saw releases such as Free to be Free on Tony Humphries label Tony Records, plus a handful of releases on Melodious Recordings.
Sean’s more recent work has found him recording for labels such as King Street Sounds, Soundmen On Wax, Tony Records and Superb Entertainment, remixing artists such as Dennis Ferrer, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Stephanie Cooke, KT Brooks, Terrance Parker, Barbara Tucker, SuSu Bobien, and Roland Clarke.
Although production is Sean’s main driving force, he has always had a love for DJ’ing; being influenced by DJ’s such as Deli-G, Tony Humphries, Karizma, Louie Vega etc, he tries to deliver a musically diverse set without loosing the entertainment factor of DJ’ing and educating the audience in old and new soulful dance music from across the board.
Look out on Traxsource.com for Sean latest superb projects for King Street Records "Soulful Journey" plus new Mixes with Byron Stingily.
Colin Curtis who also has radio shows on Starpoint and SoulGang Radio will slot into both rooms adding his wealth of experience to this event.
Vybe is looking to bring you the ultimate experience in New Soul Music in all its forms over the two rooms.We will also complete this Vybe with the best quality selections from Soul musics rich history of top dance tunes.The Best of New and The Past !!!
All this in the fantastic Best Western Premier Hotel.

Nice words from Tokyo Jazz Notes....thanks Sean

Tokyo Jazz Notes has from time to time posted features related to the jazz dance scene here in Japan, currently led by dance groups such as Stax Groove, Re:Poll FX, ADSL and Broken Sport, as well as the jazz dance events such as BeBop Square and Jazz For Dancers (coming up this weekend at JZ'Brat). It should be remembered that the current Japanese scene was born out of the UK jazz dance scene that dates back over the past couple of decades in a story well told by Snowboy in his book From Jazz Funk & Fusion To Acid Jazz: The History of the UK Jazz Dance Scene.

Back in the UK, some of the DJs from the original jazz dance scene are working hard to keep the sound alive and bring jazz dance firmly into the 21st century. Jazz fans in the north west of England will probably already be familiar with the Freestylin' event, and this slideshow features some shots from the events held over the last year or so. If you like what you see here, then you may also wish to check out fro-disia.blogspot.com, where you can listen to the monthly radio show from Colin Curtis and Tony Cooney from the Freestylin' team which features top jazz and Latin tunes from all over the globe, with a fair smattering of Japanese artists featured. The blog also features details of the upcoming Freestylin' events.
