This has been a weapon of ours for a while now. I absolutely love the original and as per usual Jkriv and Deep & Disco nail the edit to the wall. Can’t believe I haven’t put it up here yet. Well better late than never. Some really clever touches added here. Especially the spacey vocal effects which the track is hinged on. I’ve tried to keep my shit together when the chorus drops in but I just don’t think its possible and if you made it that far still in your seat the bass solo will finish you off. SO MUCH GROOVE.
House of Disco’s founder Magnier has turned in a mix for Discobelles ongoing series. This ones a bit more uptempo than his recent mixes and is packed full of some of our dancefloor favourites designed to wear out your sneakers.
Check out the mix on Discobelle HERE
Patrice Rushen get’s a slight change of pace here from Irish producer Conor Hanson. The classic dancefloor burner gets more drama added and a teasing intro before the vocals drop. Not a million miles from the original but a solid version for all those that had forgotten about this absolute gem. What Conor has added though is well thought out and works with the original, not against it like a lot of edits, especially in the breakdown after the 5 minute mark, just a shame it doesnt come back for one last chorus..
Some weekend fodder today as Sixth Avenue Express tackles a classic hi-nrg tack and makes it their own. Dont expect the campness of the original as this remake imbibes a totally new soul into the Sylvester original. Right from the off this one has chords that reek of SAE’s production style. They have rebuilt the vocals into a hooky house number perforated by a crooning sax. You could nearly be excused for not recognising its a remake, that is until ‘that’ vocal comes in. If you havent heard Sixth Avenue Express’s recent release with us have a listen HERE.
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.
