As summer peaks out, I return to Dubai's Sandpit to reclaim my throne in the role of Head of Sales & Events for the city's leading F&B group as the industry as a whole is dancing - or not, as the case may be - on thin ice. So after The Covid Comeback I gather some awesome tunage from the Cloud of Sound.There's lots of free music downloads on SoundCloud too - if you don't have an account yet, get on it! Follow me at SoundCloud.com/Owen_Daniel for more& and/or for genre-ish specific stuff, check my SC playlists: Future Funk & Nu Disco, Hip-Hop (Ippity Oppity), R&B, Reggae, Disco Classics, MiniMixes, and Kandi Tastic (Soulful House).
Top Tune Reviews
Dr Disco - Luv Town
Dubplate Disco releases a sublime re-edit of the 1983 classic by Booker Newbury III. Dr Disco adds some punchier beats, tweaks the effects and keeps the original's funky-as-hell feel.
Pharrell - Frontin' (Yam Who? Remix 2014 Remaster)
Yam Who aka Andy Williams revisits his 2013 edit of Pharrel ft Jay Z's Frontin' anthem. A chunky and melodic effort that I've only just stumbled upon myself. Epic on all levels.
