Burner alert! Jacques Renault turns in a late night dancefloor remix of this Ten City original. Relentless and gutsy this remix’s loopy keys and diva vocals give you plenty to step to. There’s nothing fluffy or gentle here so maybe not one to drop at your granny’s 80th birthday party. Jacques will be playing with us at our next party in East London alongside fellow ‘Lets Play House’ label artist Fantastic man so drop by and lets get all sweaty. DETAILS HERE
If like ‘Kero One’ you felt D’Angelo’s track ‘Spanish Joint’ was a little too mellow then this is for you! He’s added quite a lot to this to make it his own and it’s pretty effective. There’s just no wrong time to play this! It’s just a shame its so short as I think I could listen to it for at least another 5 minutes, oh well, guess I’ll just have to press play again instead.
As I’m sure you’re all aware last week marked the passing of a legend, Frankie Knuckles. The outpouring of respect from the community has been remarkable and serves as a reminder that a good attitude and a focus on music with a real soul earns you timeless respect both as a producer but also as a person. One person that held such a respect for Frankie was Dimitri From Paris who has put together a tribute edit of one of Frankie’s biggest remixes of Alison Limerick. Needless to say it’s a great tribute, taking all of his favourite parts from the 7 odd remixes out there and putting them all together harmoniously and tastefully.
RIP Frankie boy
We’ve been away for a bit, quite literally, as a result we have had to slow things down on the blog for a little bit. So please excuse the more sporadic posts from us. Today’s low slung beauty from Hober Mallow is as slow and woozy as they come. It’s the vocal that keeps this one resonating, so spooky and beautiful that you’ll be hearing the echoes for hours afterwards. Hober Mallow is a good producer, we’ve put a few of his tracks up here and all have an understated strength. This is no exception. Music for astronauts.
To celebrate their upcoming release on LOFT Records the Dorsia lads have done an edit of a Robert Palmer track. Full of interesting dynamics and beautiful touches as we’ve come to expect from these guys this edit feels fresh and interesting, one of the best edits we’ve heard in a while. Loving what they have done with the vocal here, adds a bit of a fearful atmosphere.
