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.
This was one of those tracks that before you even press play you know. You know you are going to like it, you’re rooting for it and it doesn’t disappoint. Romare’s productions are unpredictable and complex, and this tribute to James Brown certainly stays on point. It’s arrangement meanders for the first half of the track until we push through a sustained break and crash through the front door of James Brown’s gaff and surprise surprise, there’s a party happenin. Beautifully original edit here!
Let’s mix it up a little seeing as its early in the week and sometimes it’s just necessary. Todays track from Peter Power isn’t the first time we’ve featured him on the site as we’ve been fans of his track ‘Love Heave’ for a fair while now. ‘Sacral Bells’ is a fourteen minute trip out, bells seem to come from everywhere, fill every bit of space, but still the momentum remains. It’s soundscape of a patient, beautiful nature and testament to Peter’s inventiveness as a producer. It’s available for free but if you want to support the artist (please do) then you can pay what you see fit on his bandcamp HERE.
Certainly not the first edit of this seminal classic from Chic but like most of Kon’s edits certainly better than most! He’s been on fire recently and has been tapped up to officially edit some unbelievable classics, all of which have been tasteful and creative. For his version of ‘Everybody Dance’ he’s gone a dubber route than the original but where he does use the vocals they sound so so clean! The success of this edit hinges around that new break smack bang in the middle. Respectful……….respect.
