Lemin takes an old house jam for a spin for todays edit. This version of ‘Hot 22 – Before I Let You In’ takes the hooky vocal and overall groove and put’s it on a course of anabolic steroids. The result has beefed up the original into something that’s so monstrous it’s kind of scary. A dance-floor weapon of some serious clout.
This absolute weapon see’s two very different producers meet in the middle. Soundstream is one of my favourite producers, his ability to keep a loop interesting is magic on the dancefloor. Maceo Plex’s edit of ‘Love Jam’ sounds unrecognisable from the source but it’s an interesting take. It’s not new, infact it was made 5 years ago, and you can sort of tell by all those groaning synths but it feels apt for the day thats in it.
A change of pace today as we take off across the great wide open on our Harley. The original of this edit needs absolutely no introduction, it’s a stone cold classic. Still, our buddy LeSale was not dissuaded from the challenge of editing this beauty and putting his own spin on it. I am glad he did because this is all kinds of fantastic. It’s like falling in love with the original all over again.
I’ve somehow only just stumbled across Lemin. It’s one of the side effects of everyone as a whole using Soundcloud less I guess. However, better late than never. This edit of Kornél Kovács gives the original a shot of adrenaline to the heart but hangs on to the key elements of that distinct vocal. Club ready.
Today’s houseguest is Irishman Hubie Davison. Hubie is a producer who crafts his productions with class and exacting detail and always walks an interesting path as a Dj. Hubie’s mix today fits more tracks into 50 minutes that you could imagine possible, yet somehow it doesn’t feel cramped. Exploring a wide range of genre boundaries of where funk, disco, house and jazz meet in the club this mix is a wonderful journey into the depths.
Man oh man I love when disco and french house stick their hands in each others pants. This absolute burner comes from Irish Producer Shee, whose edits and productions are getting him noticed. Watch this space people, not the last time he’ll be getting mentioned on the blog.
I was recently asked by Ireland’s ‘Four Four Magazine’ to answer a few questions about living back in Ireland again and to turn in a mix for their ‘Global Mix’ series. Was an absolute pleasure to be involved.
Stunning cosmic disco edit today from Siren. Love the energy on this one. I believe Hunee has been hammering the original in his sets. I’d say it does some damage to a dance floor, that vocal would cut you in half.
A smooth and sultry springtime mix as our latest house-guest ‘Cody Currie’ take the reins. A mix should be a journey, and it’s always a welcome change when that journey is unexpected. Todays mix from Cody is just that, taking influences from jazz, deep house and some very low slung funk. Take that new armchair for a spin on this one, oh and post pictures of all babies made as a result of this mix in the comments section.
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 only be described as a majestic bass-line. Smiles all round here.
