a very, very long … musical roundup :)

i have been off the radar for a minute, building our own venue, i mean proper handywork and figuring out the feel of things, not too much the style at first, but the soul is something that eminates from within in my humble opinion, so i was worrying about the feel of things and i think i pointed it into the right direction, and now the ship sets sail, which means i have a lot of catching up to do on my very own website and thats why this is gonna be a long, long post. there are tons of sounds & tunes around me, so let me sum up a few for you which havent yet made it up on our website.

Glory - Jay-Z feat. Blue Ivy Carter

great little gem by jigga. soul samples + jigga = a win/win. Glory – Jay-Z feat. Blue Ivy Carter by Warhol2011

Amsterdam Klezmer Band - Papa Chajes (Basement Freaks Remix)

Eddie Kendricks - "Keep On Truckin' (Robin "T" Treier Mix)"

Robin, a good friend of the entire family and great mind when it comes to taste and style did his rework of this soul anthem, thats more like a oldies radio favourite these days. Robin gave it that essential spin. i like  Eddie Kendricks – “Keep On Truckin’ (Robin “T” Treier Mix)” by Robin “T” Treier

Aalyiah – Try Again (a rare approvable remix, that is not an insult to the original)

Nice & smooth Aaliyah remix by ITFW – really having a hard time these days, even attempting to listen to a remix of one of these classic soul/ hip hop tunes that get slaughtered regularly by too many bedroom djs and that whole awful mashup scene. No, Aaliyah and Daft Punk dont mix, morons! Anyway Try again has been and still is (like most of her stuff) all time classic material, minus the remixes, except that 45 king remix that was on the original 12″. This remix really lifts it up to a chill 2011 spirit, that is so much lacking these days, and is in complete contrast to the original – which was a global floor killer. Sounds a bit like the Lunice material, not as musical though, but compatible from educated hiphop to irony misunderstanding hipster.

Another gret find by chromemusic head contributor: Shawn C. White!

Soundcloud Edit Masters # 1: Leftside Wobble

Supposed to be a new segment on the blog, where i introduce a few edit masters that have caught my attention while surfing Soundcloud, which gives a perfect opportunity to a few folks like this man here to showcase all the edits, remixes and versions they have made of well known tracks and tracks which have literally been begging for a retreat. Leftside Wobble is a great one to start with a wide selection of necceassry retreats and fixes of soulful, disco, loft tunes, that you have all heard before. His Acid & House refixes lose me a bit, but thats just me. Here is a selection of tunes, that i really dig of his long list on Soundcloud.
