N’Draman Blintch – Cosmic Sounds (Mendel Edit)

One of my favourite slices of smooth Dutch edam ‘Mendel’ respectfully tackles a pretty stunning Nigerian original which has just been re-issued by Secousse. As with all the best edits gentle is the name of the game. ‘Mendel’ nails the tone playing to the strengths of that insanely hooky vocal all underpinned by what can…

Yves Simon – Amazoniaque (La Decadanse edit)

French crooner from the 80’s Yves Simon gets another lease of life and a change of pace from La Decadanse. Taking some tempo out of the original and ratcheting up the spacey echo’s on the vocals is just the ticket. – Magnier Here’s a download for you:

The Silver Rider – Crown Royal

Originally out on ‘Wall of Fame’ records on vinyl ‘The Silver Rider’ has decided to let this one loose as a free download. ‘Crown Royal’ has a soft little vibe. A familiar embrace indeed in this genre but a welcome hug all the same. – Magnier Here’s a download for you:

Tallac – The Key

Another exclusive for the blog today. The 80’s was a pretty unbeatable time for pop music. People like Michael McDonald ,who flourished as a solo artist after ‘The Doobie Brothers’, would, I suspect be eaten alive by todays music industry. This edit by ‘Tallac’ takes one of Michael’s best and most underrated tracks ‘Sweet Freedom’…

Grondini – Soft Emo

We’ve an exclusive treat for you today in the form of Grondini’s giddy grover ‘Soft Emo’. Right from the off that groove had me, one of those loops that I could live in and grow old in, start a family, get a dog, that kinda thing. Reminds me a lot of that french house feeling,…

Melanie De Biasio – Lillies (Laurence Guy Edit)

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog of late, ok, we’ve been very quiet on the blog of late. Was hard to get the motivation up after the holiday period as let’s be honest music blogs aren’t the go to way of finding music they used to be eh, now it’s mostly playlists and…

Sonny Okosun – Mother & Child (Lucid Stannard edit)

A feel good edit today from Lucid Stannard as she takes Sonny Okosun and his bass-lines for a walk around the block. Playing to the originals strengths and, well, giving you more of them is always going to be a winner. The addition of some gentle breaks really lubes this one up for warmer months.…

Isaac Hayes – Groove A Thon (The Funk District Edit)

Isaac Hayes knows whats up! His original track ‘Groove A Thon’ is the perfect candidate for an edit. It’s got all the incredible instrumental funk but is a bit lacking in the fullness of modern production. ‘The Funk District’ spotted this and jumped on in with this dance floor ready burner. Lots to like here…

Cookin’ on 3 Burners vs Kungs – This Girl (Maille Rework)

Short but sweet little funk rework today from Maille as he takes the original for a gentle stroll, nothing too drastic, lots of reverb on the vocal kinda thing. It harks back to sunny days that always seem just over the horizon in your memories. – Magnier Here’s a free download for you:

The Neville Brothers – Sons And Daughters (La Décadanse Edit)

There’s a sultry chug to this edit by ‘La Décadanse’ who’s additions dance and weave their way around the poignant vocals. Reminiscent of Gil Scott-Heron’s loaded prose and political musings this edit is a stunningly dramatic piece of production. – Magnier Here’s a free download for you:
