Another Clavin Harris disco basher

This outfit did a few nice belters

This one could easily be in the two-step/raregroove thread


Ex Miami Sound Machine backing legend.

I know nothing about Gospel but had to buy this absolute beauty on a Frankie Valentine recommendation.

This is immense

Don’t know anything of note about gospel and tbh it’s not a sound I’ll be exploring at the moment. Not feeling it right now. Perhaps I’ll come back to it in the future.

However I have heard that Marcel Vogel’s gospel mixes have been well received. There are a few on his Soundcloud.

Where it all started.


First heard this in the amazing Summer of Soul doc. Shivers my timber every time.


Sounds like a punchline, but not a joke in the slightest, Songs Of Faith & Devotion by Depeche Mode is among the finest gospel albums ever made. Very easy to view that record as an addict’s crisis, confession, bargaining, and penance to a higher power. Equally reflected in the composition. It’s a shame what Dave Gahan was going through at the time, because vocally, he’s never been more impassioned.

Also submit some Christian yacht rock.

And one of the finest songs (and strangest collaborations) Johnny Cash ever had a hand in.
