Traveler – Forget Me (Original Mix)

After a number of remixes under their belts, it’s only natural for American duo Traveler to try their hand at a first original since re-launching. I have to say I was hugely excited to hear this and haven’t been disappointed. Though what ‘Forget Me’ lacks in the instant recognisable sounds of the remixes, it makes … Continue reading

Years & Years – Desire (BUNT. Edit)

With an opening that reminds me a little to much of ‘Wonderwall’, luckily BUNT steer clear of the Britpop and move into what they call folk house.

Janet Jackson – Pleasure Principle (Classixx Recovery Mix)

Though perhaps not as big a hit in the UK as it was in America, ‘Pleasure Principle’ is as much the iconic and hugely styled sound of late 80s and early 90s pop with heavy electronic synths and a pulsating bassline. American duo Classixx give Janet Jackson’s hit something of an upgrade. I love how … Continue reading
