I’m Ready Edit

kar99919-9117681168788

Ken Adhitya – Ready (2010)

Samples the seminal Kano – I’m Ready (1980.) Pretty well balanced IMO and full of all the current tricks and sound manipulations one would expect from a 2010 production. Check out his other edits.

Heavy Hitter et al.

bnhh588618716-58178617176881136817681188768

They’re all clustered together on this post because they’re obviously made using the same recipe. Most of the production team is the same.

Karen Diggs – Infatuation (1982) – and no, this is not an alternative version of Plastic Doll.

Barbara Norris – Strategy (1983)

Karen Diggs – Congratulations (1983)

The last one is my favourite from the lot, and unquestionably the most well known – what a catchy hook, everything’s in the name:

Barbara Norris – Heavy Hitter (1981)

Barbara Norris – Heavy Hitter (Remix Instrumental)

Musica Da Batticuore Retrospective – Fri. Jan. 1, 20:00 UTC

trssnrc688177681368371681368

No Spaced Out Disco Session this Friday on the webradio. Even hard workers like The Robot Scientists can take a break too.

But fear not: a musical retrospective of their first “Musica Da Batticuore” mixes will be scheduled instead. It starts at 8pm UTC  and features the cosmic grooves of volume 1 through 6, which means it will be a whole night dedicated to the electronic sound of the duo. Non stop.

Have a nice new year’s eve!

Fri. Jan. 1, 20:00 UTC – Webradio special programme : Musica Da Batticuore Retrospective – Volume 1 To 6.

Get On Down

Remove everything except the bassline from this already fairly minimalist tune:

King Sporty & The Root Rockers – Get On Down (1979)

And you get this monster electro hit:

Connie Case – Get On Down (1982)

Secret Sunday Lover

Ali Love

1gnition – Secret Sunday Lover (Greg Wilson Edit)

This one’s a classic hit single but the different mixes are soOo efficient to me that I can’t resist to share the groove!

1st release in 2007 produced by Ignition a UK  based band formed by Ali Love & Marcus J Knight with Eon including Greg Wilson‘s epic mix.

Ali Love – Secret Sunday Lover

2nd version appears on Ali Love’s album and single in a dirty style and another juicy mix by Sébastien Léger turning to acid.

Popcorn

mm571733235416871Magic Men – Popcorn (Dub Version) (1983)

I’ve spared you the annoying Popcorn melody in this sample but it’s in the full song actually. For a clean and trimmed 7 minute long version of this tune, without the notorious gimmick, check out the edit by The Robot Scientists.

Welcome To Tomorrow

bigchip.jpg

Not recent at all, but it could have been written nowadays as well. Future-proof, in a way.

Ellison Chase – Welcome To Tomorrow (1983)

BTW The great Beat Broker gives away his own edit for download over there, so give it a proper listen. The original has been slightly “updated” with a new bassdrum, and some sections have been a bit chopped-up too.
