Here’s a quick deluge of music to ease you through this recent bout of bi polar weather that we’re experiencing. Will it be sunny? Or will it be grey, wet and windy? Only time will tell, but while we wait here are 10 tracks that are rather pleasing to dance to.
Mr Martin Solveig has a new album called ‘C’est La Vie’ and he’s been kind enough to pass it onto us, along with a bunch of remixes by some badass producers. But not only that, he’s letting us post a couple of the remixes exclusively here on WANARB. That’s right – this is the only place on the internet where you can legally download these two tracks without paying for them… So go on, grab yourselves a guilt free download! What a nice chap he is.
Previously, my only ‘encounter’ with Martin Solveig was many moons ago, with a tune called ‘I’m a good man’ – a classic, bar, chilled funky house tune. I was intrigued to see what his new stuff would be like, and whether he had kept to that sound which served him so well in the past, or whether he had moved along with the times. On listening to the album, I was pleasantly surprised. The production is classy, and whilst it’s not an album packed full of stompers, the beats do pack a punch. This, combined with friendly bass lines that playfully bounce around, creates a recipe for feel good summertime house music. Just a shame the weather outside is so gash…
Anyway, onto the remixes! Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Popof. So when I was told he was on remix duties I was obviously pretty excited. All of Popof’s tunes are laden with cheeky builds, drops and bass lines which are complemented by sheer techno stompage. He’s a total legend – in fact I’m pretty surprised that this is the first time he’s featured here on WANARB!
That’s right. Greg Wilson is an absolute dude. I think I’ve let myself down a little bit in the past because I’ve never really tucked into all the amazing edits that he’s done. That was until last weekend, when I was lucky enough to be subjected to the whole of ‘Credit To The Edit – Vol 2′ at my best pals’ bar. Guys – It is stonkingly good. It’s an album well worth buying. What’s more is that you can easily get hold of his other edits for free on Soundcloud.
So if you’re like me, and have had your head in the sand all these years, then let us enlighten your lives with these little ditties. They’re pure house grooves – and although that may be enough to put most people (including myself) off – don’t be. The tunes are perfectly weighted, made (edited) by a man who has been at the top of his game for a generation. Listen to this and picture yourself at a sun soaked pool party in Ibiza/Miami sipping cocktails…
(can’t get the media players to work on this post! Grrrr. Oh well – you’ll just have to download them then!)
