Music Reviews - July 2021

Experiencing my first holiday in 20 years, the intro of my first 24 Hours in Kyrgyzstan, didn't give me so much free time for tunage and the Cloud of Sound. Nonetheless, I slapped together this selection of the musical things floating my boat in the month of July. This month, I feature edits of Lynn White and Jean Carne, alongside mixes via Pete Le Freq and a mysterious Frenchman (or woman).

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

Jean Carne - Intro My Love Don't Come Easy (LUP INO Edit)

A slow-build up, funky house extended mix of this 1979 classic - with those legendary strings, you can do no wrong as a rule. The Italian maestro Lup Ino eases you onto the dancefloor every time.

Ferdinand Debeaufort - In Your Smile

Defty sampling the retro-sounding release by Lynn White titled "I Don't Know Why", this soulful Frenchman lands a spot on the critically acclaimed "Yacht Disco Edits" series. C'est tres bon.




Mega Mix Reviews

Music In The Air - The Soul Avengers

A far-too-brief 30 minute mix of sublime retro soul gems. Kicking off with the vintage "Baby It's Alright" by Debbie Peters, and other headline grabbers include the more jazzy/blues-sounding "Get High" by Main Street (I think) & the delightful, "Sans Tabou" by Angèle (1988). Epicness.

Pete Le Freq - Dancing in Your Kitchen (23.7.21)

This mix comes from one of the most prolific edits guru on the nu-disco scene. He drops cheeky edits of classics like "Inside Out", "P.Y.T", "Cosmic Girl", "Groove is in the Heart" which I'm assuming are mostly his edits; if you don't know, get to know - follow this dude on all channels.
