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

Estelle feat. Kanye West – American Boy (Moustache Machine Remix)

Who remembers ‘American Boy’? Crazy to think this came out all the way back in 2008! I’m still a big fan of the original, with its poppy but still dance based style. Moustache Machine give it a quick once over with a pulsing bassline and dreamy synths. Sharp.

Chromeo – Jealous (Hotel Garuda X Sweekuh Remix)

Chromeo’s ‘Jealous’ is turned into a deep and expansive epic by Hotel Garuda and Sweekuh. How did we miss this?! And how to Hotel Garuda keep churning out hit after hit?! The saxophone really is something else in this – well worth a listen.

We only heard this amazing tune last week and got so excited… only to find it came out 8 months ago. Tristan Thoraval , aka Androma, has cooked up a wonderful piano driven banger … Continue reading
