songs everyone should own: double – the captain of her heart(Ole Smokey’s Ships In The Night Edit)

I had almost forgotten how much I loved this little early eighties nugget of soft rock, but Ole Smokey brought it right back for me.  Plus, I don’t ever think I even knew the name of the band.

It’s Double, BTW…

songs everyone should own: van morrison – i’ve been working

I’ve been a big fan of this tune for some time now.  It’s off Van’s “His Band and the Street Choir” album from 1970 and you should probably grab it if you can.

But since I am a great guy , I found an excellent remix that Rayko did a while back, that takes the original material and makes it longer.  That pretty much took care of my only complaint about the tune.

You can download a copy of his version HERE.

Sorry, but I’ve been working

It’s true, at times I have to work and go to school and listen to my massive horde of music to find more stuff to drop on you  guys and girls.

In the meantime, here’s a little re-edit we made of the1968  UK hit from Billie Davis,” I Want You To Be My Baby.”

artists everyone should follow: psychemagik

It is no easy task to DJ for other people.  Imagine going to work at your job and every five minutes some complete stranger walks up to you to tell you how they think you should do your job.  Because, at their core, most DJ’s aren’t interested in being your personal jukebox.  They don’t want to play the new Britney Spears for you, they want to play things you’ve never heard before and make you freak out on them.

This is not an easy task because most people don’t want to hear music they don’t already recognize, let alone try and dance to it. They want to hear the same top 40 crap the radio shits out every day. I don’t think I’ll ever understand this, but thats just me.

But one group that manages to play a lot of obscure old tracks and actually make them feel accessible is Psychmagik.  I worship at the alter of these guys and every remix, re-edit or mix they put out is pure gold…as the remix they did of Fleetwood Mac above can testify to.  Also check out their “Blackout ’77 Mix” below.  This is some top notch ear food here.

There is also this little gem of a two hour mix called “Sunrise” that they dropped the other week.  Pure magic!  Download it over at Test Pressing HERE.  Below you’ll also find their amazing remix of Tony Joe White, who you may recall also rocks.

Or this little psychedelic beat heavy number:

If these tracks don’t hook you then I can’t be of any more assistance today.  Good day.

songs everyone should own: lesale – oh no bono


FOR SOME REASON I CAN”T EMBED THIS TRACK SO GO HERE…DJ TIM

If you like old U2, and why shouldn’t you, then you definitely need this awesome instrumental reworking Lesale did of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” Originally created a few months back, he tried shopping it to a few labels, but no one would touch it. Their loss is our gain!

songs everyone should own: ken mansfield and ron wright – van nuys blvd (musica hermosa’s edit dub)

I don’t know what it is about Musica Hermosa’s edit of this old Ken Mansfield and Ron Wright tune that does it for me, but it definitely does it.

The fact that it may be one of the only redeeming parts of the movie might be it (it’s a low budget movie about cruising Van Nuys Blvd…like a poor mans American Graffiti,) but Musica definitely turned this into a dance floor heater.

If you feel the same about it, you can download a copy over HERE.
