Scott Grooves – The Journey
(From The Studio Of Scott Grooves, 2004)

Definitely in my top five of all time. It´s moody, it´s swings, it´s uplifting, superfunky. Full of joy, sweetness and life. Truly an epic song…

“From one brother to another
the Rhythm has been passed down,
therefore, my musical tree has its roots
planted deeply in the soil of Rhythm
This is my Journey”

Andrés – Reality  (1999, KDJ 24)

One of the best releases on Moodymann’s KDJ label. And in my opinion one of the catchiest songs ever. For happy moments: get it, play it and hum along with the doe doe doe doedoedoedoe…
Also check all his latest work, Moments In Life, which is pretty awesome too.

Knowing Me, Knowing You Dub

abba_heads.jpg Linda Jane Bull did an awesome job with this ABBA track.She(?) trimmed all the fuss and the extra-sweet pop elements from the original version and spared one single loop only, but what a loop!

This is a wonderful edit full of flange and reverb: the end-result is really dubby and cosmic.

Daniele Baldelli is one of the Euro DJ pioneers in disco who began his career in the end of the 60’s till nowadays. He used to mix disco but also afro funk, synth-pop, house music and even more.

Here are a few tracks that are more alike slow-down disco with tribal rhythms. It is a hard task only selecting the best tracks on this album, “Cosmic Sound” (2006), because I just love it as a whole, thanks to its diversity.

Daniele Baldelli – Cosmic Tune
Daniele Baldelli – Electrodub
Daniele Baldelli – Pluton
