It's been a while since I've posted a new edit but hopefully this tune was worth the wait! Go download it now for free and, as always, support the original artist!
New Zealand's Lord Echo has been a favorite of mine since I first laid ears on him. His cover of Sister Sledge's Thinking of You has been my go-to closer on many gigs during my last two European tours and his newest album, Curiosities, as left my turntable only momentarily since it's release. His soul/jazz/disco/reggae-tinged tunes transcend genres and description. They are, quite simply, sublime and divine .... everything that good music should be.
There's not much to say about this edit, other than it is an extension of the all too brief original (itself a cover of the Leon Thomas masterpiece). Just a bit of razor work to extend it out for my own Dj use and some slight play with the vocals during the climax... and, in the beginning, I added the bells from the Leon Thomas version in a nod to the original. Enjoy!
I've just uploaded my set from April 19, 2012, when I played at Teatro Odesseia here in Rio de Janeiro, along side Dumb & Brass and Fines Polettes from Paris, France. This set features some epic soul, heavy funk, smoking soul jazz, latin heat, some afrobeat and a bit more. There are some seriously heavyweight tunes going on here, if I do say so myself!
You can stream the mix below via mixcloud or you can download the mix here from mediafire. Enjoy!
