Door #4: SO MUCH THIS Free DL – Reece Lemonius “Love Me” (Cupidon Edit)

Without having introduced Reece himself, and we will save that for Door#5 and a few other doors, bc the fella is amazing, here is a re-edit of Reece’s first official release. The two Beatsmiths Golo & Leo at it again. Another phenomenal yet simple groovy beat break rendering they are offering here. Officially released a few weeks earlier, it mostly was swept under the rug unnoticed, but i think if you are into the sounds of the modern day beatsmiths you can def hear what these two musicians/Djs are cooking. Ps Leo is one of our own – homegrown at the YUM YUM parties in cologne and around and i just wish i had more time to talk to Golo and get him more involved. The sweetest guys ever and their productions are superb. Enjoy this soulful late night gem by Mr Reece Lemonius & Cupidon.

AND in case you missed it. The two fellas had another impeccable release last year, which you can check out here. Go grab the Free DL djs kids, beatmsiths and chillhop enthusiasts.

Door #1: Playlist of Tommy Montana Remixes

Much can be said about Tommy and pretty much everything of it is positive and most of it is right. I always liked Tommy bc he was an observer and appeared to be the Silent Guy, that knew and exactly understood the musical Zeitgeist. When playing music he added his own touch and showed his love and appreciation for what he liked. Compromises for the dancefloor, sure no problemo, but the magic and beauty of the real art of deejaying is still being able to turn it out and give it your personal touch, spin and je ne sais quois.

I think i actually deejayed only once with Tommy before i hit the brakes with the wheels. But this entire observation of what Tommy is about, comes from a sheerly psychological perspective, that you learn while deejaying. You get that ‘look’ for people’s behaviour – rational, aware and completely zoomed out – that sounds prejudiced but ultimately is almost always a 100% spot on. Tommy is that guy and his own mixes speak for himself, and even when producing music, said quality comes shining right through.

Here he is with his very own productions. his own tasteful niche of sound, if you love soul & hip hop based beats for the floor, which are designed & produced by a tasteful dj for djs,. He was and still is part of the clique we had going called YUM YUM.  I bounced for a minute but some of the guys kept on growing and glowing.
You can literally play anyone of these tunes and you won’t go wrong. Even the songs he picked for remixing, reimagining are picked tastefully. Happy Door One with this one!

 

Luna by Kuzo

Sounds like a late summer tune, mellow in every nuance and might be best categorized as future pop. Really dig the vibes Luna spreads here. The singer, although most certainly unintentionally, has a similar vibe to the late Sade Adu, and that is pretty huge for a name that just started out. Dig the artwork and the subtle production.  All in all, very rounded and more of a vibeful manifestation of beauty than a planned out fabrication to hypnotize the listener. Very welcome.
