3 days off

Friday, 1 April 2011

feeling a little bit excited today. might be because i am in the middle of a two (2) day week.. or maybe its because the songs im about to post are really f'ing good. hmm..

first up is a slice of hot disco fire from pete herbert and the awesome reverso 68.
sampling eartha kitt's '84 classic 'where is my man', this edit captures the glamourous life of 80's disco.. strings, throbbing basslines and kitt's distinctive vocals kicking in toward the end of the track. love when they do that:

Reverso 68 - Earthy Powers

'earthy powers' features on reverso 68's 'well heeled' release. grab it here.

and here is another awesome blast from the past courtesy of 80's heart-throbs heaven 17 and modular-crew-dj-assistant dream time.
the timeless nature of so many old tracks always shocks me.. i first heard 'penthouse & pavement' on a metro area dj mix and instantly scrambled to find who had done the remix.. when i saw that it was an original my head imploded a little bit.
so into the wacked out percussion, slap bass and girly vocals in the chorus.
dreamtime extends it out a bit and funks up the composition, but it is pretty much left as is.. defs worth a listen!

Heaven 17 - Penthouse & Pavement (Dream Time Remix)

anoraak will finish up this post nicely.. this remix for pacific! is a slice of chilled filter house straight from the valerie/french house era.
really really nice, strong melodic base with the typical slick, smooth anoraak production. the vocals work so well in this mix as well.
looking for a way to ease into your friday? this might be it..

Pacific! - Unspoken (Anoraak Remix)

preorder pacific!'s unspoken ep here it will be out on the 18th of april.
