Top Tune Reviews
Chuggin Edits - Bak 4 More
A blissed out summer-in-Miami vibed rehash of Al Johnson and Jean Carn's 1980 classic. Down-tempo with soulful, filtered lyrics looped sublimely with some extra funky kicks and beats.
DJ Supermarkt - We Do It
The second track I've featured from the Yacht Disco Edits compilation. This one, with melodic strings throughout, samples R & J Stone's stunning vocals from the '76 original "And We Do It".
Mega Mix Reviews
Oldchap - Saint Wax Podcast
Parisian DJ and remixer Oldchap drops a suitably French touch inspired guest mix for the elusive Saint Wax Podcast crew. A lovely blend of rare grooves, hip-hop, house and nu disco gems.
Yuksek ft Kiddy Smile - Radio Nova #6 (24 April '20)
Two hours of gorgeous house music. Funky disco through to techier endings; Yuksek includes retro classics amongst a sprinkling of his own releases. Kiddy's melodic medley meanwhile rocks!
