South Street Player is the alter-ego of one of the best soulful house producers, Roland Clark. His single (Who?) Keeps Changing Your Mind was a house track released back in 1993 in the post-disco era as the night club scene was shifting to house music. It’s an incredibly beautiful song that has elements of disco, [...]
Dusty Springfield’s suave candlelight classic gets a chill house makeover from Austria’s Joyce Muniz, released as a free download by the Exploited Records label. Like we said in the remix of Son of a Preacher Man, it is strange how few Dusty remixes there are out there.
We Are Family has been one of those essential dance tracks that doesn’t seem to have received a proper remix treatment. This particular mashup takes the better parts of two remixes and leaves out the weaker bits. Credit really goes to Toronto’s Hatiras and Germany’s GroovestylerZ. It’s times like this do you realize how new [...]
Funk producer duo from Philadelphia Clayton & Fulcrum take on the heartfelt track from our favourite Swede singer/songwriter Lykke Li, keeping the chill vibe and adding a bit of a kick with their light edit on the instrumental half of the track. With the HD generation, even bootleg remixes (remixes based off of the completed [...]
Alright, technically it’s a remix of a Deep Dish track – they covered Fleetwood Mac’s original with a whole new vocal track by FMac’s singer Stevie Nicks. That being said, structurally it’s identical between their cover and if they were to remix the original, most people wouldn’t notice the difference. It’s probably the best case [...]
Torontonian Zeds Dead samples Aretha Franklin’s gorgeous single I Say a Little Prayer For You to produce a gentle dubstep track for those late nights and early mornings when those breakbeats and the bassline make your head gently nod to the rhythms of the week. Or maybe it’s just plain dope, I can’t tell sometimes.
The sweetest beach house track with heartmelting male vocals, channeling the quintessence of Marvin Gaye. This is one of those house tracks to say farewell to summer and a celebration of the good times. However, it is done in a positive way, very much reminding us about love and feeling good – especially when that [...]
A sexy blend of American folk rock, gospel soul vocals, and hip hop beats and vinyl work, this is perfect baby making music. Ambrosia’s a huge name from a time in the past, reaching prominence, especially in California, in the 1970s. They’ve had numerous top 40 hit singles around the mid 70s, but have been [...]
Formed in 2005, Monophonics is one of San Francisco Bay Area’s modern day bands that carry the sounds of the late 60’s and early 70’s. The 6 piece band hit every check box on the list: yearly residents at the legendary New Orleans Jazz Festival, winner’s of the city’s reader’s awards, and they freely mix [...]
Originally a song called Unchain My Heart recorded by Ray Charles in 1961, this particular remix is that of Trini Lopez’s cover. The track has had somewhat of a colourful history. Its songwriter, Bobby Sharp sold the track for a ridiculous (even for the time) $50 to jazz musician Teddy Powell to fuel his drug [...]
