An exclusive today and something a little different from OhYeah!?. Not an edit but a really accomplished cover of the Evelyn Champagne King classic ‘Love Come Down’. We loved this one from the off, the original is a firm favourite but this version from duo OhYeah!? is laden with instrumental work (the real kind) and a fantastic vocal performance from vocalist Fleur. It’s really refreshing to hear a cover of a track that doesn’t just slice up the original and instead opts to rebuild in an interesting way in a studio. I’m pretty sure this would put a smile on Evelyn King’s face.
More classic edits turned into dancefloor mayhem today as Chemise’s ‘She Cant Love You’ get its tempo ramped up and its ass kicked by Purplediscomachine. There’s a nice Dj friendly intro to get the most out of the familiar drop early on. There’s so much groove in this one. Its the kind of edit that gets dance-walking down the street when you didn’t mean to. So good that it feels a little short and we’re sad to hear it end.
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.
