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:

Pablo Fierro – Alegranza (Ethno Mix)

Radiohead fans might have some issues with this one but what the hell, it’s got a different feel, but it will no doubt polarise people. Granted it’s a flagrant use of the ‘those’ iconic chords, but I’m ok looking past that to the really quite interesting production here. Those vocals tear a hole in me…

Bautista – Vida (Petko Turner Edit)

Some latin spice today. Roland Bautista recorded as a not consistent full member of Earth, Wind & Fire, in different periods of time. Has also played as session man for The Crusaders, The Jackson 5, Lamont Dozier, Ramsey Lewis, Randy Crawford, George Duke, Wayne Henderson and Hubert Laws. Petko Turner has ratcheted up the tempo…

Munich Machine – Space Warrior (Athome Acid Mix)

Raucous acid edit action today as ‘Dj Athome’ tackles a wonderfully cosmic original (produced by Giorgio Moroder) and layers down some enthusiastic elements on top. It’s short but it’s powerful and dance floor primed. Munich Machine, who penned the original are also responsible for one of my favourite classics ‘Get On The Funk Train’. –…

Magdy El Hossainy – Music De Carnaval (Discotheque Fantastique Rework)

This Egyptian jazz funk hidden treasure from Magdy El Hossainy called ‘Music De Carnaval’ was officially repressed by Pépite records in France on 7″ and Discotheque Fantastique have reworked it to perfection. There’s so much to like in here with little flourishes of percussion everywhere and an overall groove that dissolves time itself. – Magnier…

Ennio Morricone – A Fistful Of Dollars (Beto Edit)

Ennio Morricone is the king of western movie soundtracks. You know his compositions even if you don’t, or think you don’t. Anyway Beto seems to have been having an absolute hoot in the studio making this one taking Ennio’s iconic theme from ‘Fistful of Dollars’ and making something with a bit more tempo and, well,…
