I have to admit we had never come across any of Discomofo’s edits until our buddy Harry Wolfman put us onto them through one of his excellent recent mixes (check the mix HERE, its full of goodness). Now we love Grace Jones so were excited to come across this one. It goes a loopy disco edit direction but adds some beef to the original creating a dancefloor weapon, as if the original wasnt strong enough! This ones just gets bigger and bigger. I have a feeling this one will be in the proverbial bag for a while.
And we’re back! After a much needed break we’re rested and ready for 2014. We thought we’d ease ourselves in with this soulful behemoth thats been flipped by Dave Allison. Bobby’s dulcet tones bookmark this track as a timeless classic and Mr Allison has treated the original with respect adding the odd loopy flourish and a heap more psychedelia to get lost in. A beautiful love ballad to kick off the year.
Zimmer has been on our radar for a while due to his mix series, which is always so solid. Today he weighs in with a free sun drenched track. You’d guess that the artist was somewhere sunny and warm when he made this, and you’d be right. This should come with a ‘Made in Mexico’ tag. With a slow enough tempo this one is all about the richness of its saturated elements. Close your eyes and pretend.
We’ve pretty much loved all of Chris Malinchak’s output and its always a treat seeing a new free track. ‘Call My Name’ is a summery one that’s for sure but will work equally well on a bright crisp winters day. A loopy but seductive vocal adds the charm while a full and simple bassline drives it home. Lovely work again and after the year he’s had it’s good to see him not pandering too much to popularity.
It’s been absolutely ages since we had something new from Perseus, the fella behind French Express. ‘Shadow of The Beast’ is a comeback of sorts. It takes and Cassie vocal sample and lifts a vocal from Ashanti’s ‘Rain on Me’ and goes the pitched up R&B vocal route which is something that we will all be pretty familiar with. Nonetheless this track has a subtle beauty to it and holds a really nice enveloping atmosphere. Welcome back Perseus, stay awhile.
