Following up on v1 of the Spring Mixtape Sessions, I’ve got some sweet tunes that have been on heavy rotation in my phone for the past several weeks.
From classic re-works of Janet Jackson and Funkstar De Luxe (Bob Marley) to the classic remakes Better Off Alone (originally by Alice Deejay) and Show Me Love (originally by Robin S), this set represents the anti-top 40 with brilliant tunes on the chill tip.
Show Me Love is a magnificent re-interpretation of the early 90s house classic that defies all logic on paper until you hear it. Sam Feldt’s soulful delivery shines bright with a sharp focus on the lyrics that were otherwise overlooked on the original. Nothing short of brilliant!
These songs are sandwiched between a hefty dose of originals that I won’t pick apart individually other than to say they are some of the finest tunes you won’t hear on the radio at the moment.
As usual, I close things out with something uplifting and Dance fits the bill quite nicely. Gina Carey’s vocals and spiritual reading channel an early 80s Stephanie Mills on this excellent slice of soulful house.
Make sure to check back later today and tomorrow because I’ve decided to go ahead and post the next Diva Series and the 2015 Spring Edition for the circuit boys is going up tomorrow. So DON’T MISS OUT!
