Danny Daze Ft. Louisahhh – Your Everything

31 Mar

Here is a late night, sick tune! A track that R. already had sent me a long time ago, but one I stumbled upon again just now when I was riding on my bike back home. I was really drawn into the groove. Deeper than deep! I just couldn’t resist posting this. Good night!

Catriona Irving – Sitting On The Shelf Without Shelly (Plaisir De France Remix)

28 Mar

This track really shows how good acoustic can sound with a little tweak of electronica. Not that acoustic isn’t great on itself though. I’ve got this track from a Stephane Pompougnac CD who is a French house DJ. If you know him then it is highly likely that you know him as the composer and mixer of the Hôtel Costes CD’s. The CD where this track is from wasn’t a Hôtel Costes CD, it was a solo album by Stephane Pompougnac called Night and Day. The best track on both CD’s! The track displays such a great interplay between the female vocals, the male vocals and the beat.


Azari & III – Into The Night (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

27 Mar

Don’t you just love it to when you have heard a great track on the radio, in a club or in a DJ set and at the time you don’t know what the name is and later on you just stumble upon it? That happened to me with this track. A very interesting remix by Nicolas Jaar, who has made an excellent new track out of the original by Azari & III. And the piano is the best!

Ornette – Crazy (Nôze Remix)

27 Mar

Here’s another track I stumbled upon last night. One to start off your day in a good mood: Crazy.  A laidback remix by the boys of Nôze who are themselves a bit crazy when they play live, if I have to believe what I’ve heard.

“Ooh Ooh Ooh”

William Fitzsimmons – I Don’t Feel It Anymore (George Raquet Remix)

26 Mar

Holy shit. I just found a shitload of fantastic music! I really want to post it all, but I have to go to sleep now and well…exams are coming up. So I’ll have to see when I have the time, but here is a little taste of what is coming: I Don’t Feel It Anymore. This remix is just so sweet! Beautiful vocals that go very well with the  subtle beat. Well done George Raquet, well done.

Dirty Doering – Loco (Alexander Kowalski Remix)

26 Mar

This is not a track you can listen to when you want to go to sleep. This makes you want to jump all over the place. What a sick track! Looking for a genuine banger? You have found it right here. It’s just Loco!

Bill Cosby & Quincy Jones – Hikky Burr

26 Mar

This song was recorded by Bill Cosby and Quincy Jones in 1969 as the theme song for The Bill Cosby Show. This song is so funky, thanks to the loose kind of playing. It sounds like everybody is just jamming and having a good time. Note the amazing saxophone lines and the awesome bass playing by Carol Kaye (amazing female bass player, played on classics like ‘Good Vibrations’ by the Beach Boys, ‘River Deep – Mountain High’ by Ike & Tina and a lot of Simon & Garfunkel songs).

The Section – Doing The Meatball

26 Mar

The Section is a band from Los Angeles formed in the early seventies. They mostly performed as a backing band for great artists like Crosby & Nash, James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne and ehm… James Blunt. Because of all the artists they played with, you can hear that these guys can play every style of music. In their free time they recorded in total three albums, with mostly instrumental songs. This song was recorded in the time The Section recorded James Taylor’s album One Man Dog in 1972. The theme of this song is so catchy. First it starts with a very smooth guitar lick. When you think that’s it, the rest of band comes in with an even catchier saxophone melody. That groove goes on with a great sax solo. I really like the moment when the band stops and only that first guitar line comes back in. And now I’m listening to the song for the tenth time in a row, listen to that amazing bass guitar. Great song!

Noir & Haze – Around (Solomun Vox Mix)

26 Mar

This was the first track in a set by Solomun that R. had sent me and you can imagine how this track already set the tone of that set. Perfect beats by Noir, sexy vocals by Haze and just that little bit extra by Solomun. This track is slow, deep and funky. Perfect for a summer’s day soundtrack.

Editors – Papillon (Tiësto Remix)

26 Mar

A few days ago I was talking about some tracks that were real bangers and this track just always does it for me. Another remix from the post-trance era of Tiësto and one of the few that I really like since his shift. This track just gets your attention from second one and it will keep it until the very end. The typical melody and the vocals are already there in the original, but Tiësto gives it just that right touch. A fine remix.
