This new edit from my man, Merlin, showed up in my soundcloud inbox the other day and I found it worthy of sharing with you all.
Merlin has made his name in the hip hop world but his deep crates and eclectic taste transcends simple genre classifications. I think this is one reason we get along so well. It certainly has nothing to do with how we treat each other after a few drinks. But I digress.
Merlin's re-rub of this 1979 hit by Machine slows the tempo down a bit while punching it up with some extra percussion programming, adding some spice to the masala. And like all things spicy, this will make you sweat. Download, enjoy and stop by his soundcloud page and show some love.
ps - sorry again, bud, about your nose last time i was in nyc ;)
*update 1:51pm: I just came across a new remix by Merlin of NYC-based singer/songwriter, Matthew Belle's new track, "Oh My Stars". With the help of Matt Brandau on bass & keys, Merlin has transformed this mellow singer/song writer tune into something a little more special.
It's been about a year since I last played in New York and I couldn't be more hyped to be going back! Not only do I have a grip of new edits I've done that no one has heard yet, I'll be joined on the decks at Fantastic Pleasure by two good friends and dope dj's, Merlin & Fingerscales (aka Jason & Josh). If you are in the NYC area, come through to Trophy Bar Friday night because we gonna be gettin' down!
Fantastic Pleasure takes place at Trophy Bar
(b/t 9th St & Keap St)
