Put a bit of house swing into your stride today with yet another great freebie from Sixth Avenue Express. This rehash of Jamaica Girl’s track On the Move slows down the original and goes a more piano house route with plenty of giddy little shifts and drops as we have come to expect from the SAE guys. Music to high five strangers to.
There’s a bucketload of edits of this classic Alicia Myers original out there (Dead Rose Music Company – Faith being my favourite) and this one is one of the better ones. Geared up for the floor this loopy full force version will get hips swinging for sure. Letting the vocal loose too much effect in the middle lifts this edit to something that’ll be playing in your head the next morning as you piece together the antics from the night before.
OH MY GAWD! This personifies summer. This laid back version expertly crafter by Dj Butcher creates that giddy feeling of summer while remaining as cool as a proverbial cucumber. It’s not a million miles from the original but is given a bit more kick and the arrangement is tweaked to get you a bit more excited, it’s summer after all, at least is is when you listen to this. Pretty perfect track to start a summer mix…….watch this space (not literally).
We’re big fans of SOHN’s productions and when we saw this one pop up online we were keen as hell. XO kicks the original onto the dancefloor and makes it dance against its will. This remix pulls out the original synth and goes a much heavier darker route leaning heavily on the power of the vocal. Peak time stuff for sure.
Very few edit merchants out there put as much time and detailing into their work as ‘The Reflex’. His edits always have a feeling of a rare deft touch as though he’s had access to the original hallowed master recording tracks. This edit is no different if not a little less subtle than usual, opting to tear the shirt off your back in the middle of the dance-floor instead of slowly unbuttoning your blouse. Serious feel good factor here with build up after build up to keep you locked in and nice to see the horns still playing such an important part in the mix.
