Alkalino is one of those editors that we keep coming back to, his productions set him apart from the usual run of the mill stuff and this one has been in the bag for so long, it’s about time we showed it some love. Donna Summer ‘Our Love’ is already a bit of a masterpiece and Alkalino makes it go all dance floor berserk mode. There’s so much to like in what he’s done to prepare it for dance floor annihilation that I’m just going to shut up and let you get on with it.

Firstly we’d like to apologise to everyone about all the embedded players disappearing from nearly all our posts and some broken links on the site’s downloads. Our player provider has vanished off the face of the earth, as did our media hosting service, which as a double whammy has broken our hearts and a lot of links, so much so that we thought about removing the blog altogether. We always wanted this site to be an archive, a resource, somewhere for this music to live forever, and untrustworthy companies and dishonest people have made that not the case. So apologies for that, a lot of the download links still work from recent posts however. On the bright side from now on we will be archiving everything in a bomb proof server, so from this moment on the archive will be robust and hopefully long lasting and worthwhile.
Aaaanyway, back to the music. Today we have a tripped out Blue Oyster Cult edit from Luxxury, it takes a blissed out unexpected route and has almost no cowbell, and you know what, thats refreshing. It’s got that LA thing going on, you know what I mean? Long sunsets, sweltering heat and a kind of compelling magnetism. Enjoy
Poolside specialise in music that is drenched in sun, has chlorine in its eyes and a cocktail in its hand. Their productions have a dreamy LA feel to them and this wonderful edit of Le Pamplemousse is an extension of this. Adding stronger percussive elements and kick to keep it moving this edit plays to all the strengths of the original, which is the essence of any good edit in my books.
Uplifting breezy edit today of one of the best tracks from Crazy P’s recent album. This version by Life on Planets takes the original to new highs, giving it a bit more pace and treading a more goose-bump inducing path and channelling sunnier, warmer times. The Crazy P guys have just given this track away ahead of their upcoming US tour. Fair play to the guys, they have been putting smiles on peoples faces since 1995 and show no signs of frowning any time soon.
