Motown Wednesday #2: The Supremes

After I got so much great feedback to the start of the Motown Editions, I’m really glad to present you the second one. This time I have some more popular stuff. The radio stations my parents used to listen to during my childhood had The Supremes always in their repertoire. So here are my three favourites of a this great Ladies:

Motown Wednesday #1: Martha Reeves & the Vandellas

Some weeks ago I saw a documentary about Detroit, Michigan. The story which told me what the city had been, what it became and especially what it is today impressed me a lot. The whole subcultural power which is reinventing the city right now, still finds its roots in the Motown years. That’s why I wanted to share this new weekly Motown Edition with you. Martha Reeves was one of the big names at that time and with the Vandellas, she formed one of the very first girl groups in terms of our pop-culture imagination.

For years there has been nothing – i mean literally no interesting music/ production coming out of Hamburg, germany, which used to be one if not THE music capitol of the country. There are always certain shifts towards places – remember Bristol in the mid nineties, Frankfurt in the late 80ies, early 90ies etc. Anyway its hard to keep up with Berlin these days, with all the concentrated talent there. So Shifty are hailing straight out of Hamburg and these guys are simply doing some fine enjoyable remixes. Especially their Major Lazer/ Nina Skye remix caught my ear. Although i didnt want to post another Major Lazer remix, a least for long now, this one is hard to resist. Sounds like a proper 60ies Ska original. Lovely… as well as the other stuf they sent through. All enjoyable – grab their material and make sure to feed your ipods. They will appreciate it.
