A Gruelling Week

It's been one of those weeks. Not enough time to do anything. England knocked out of the European Championships (congratulations Croatia), was pathetic, but generally it's been quite gruelling. Thank god for the music then.

Here's four more of the best.

Who Stole the Soul (Phil Weeks and David Duriez remix) - DJ Linus (Brique Rouge Traxx)

By far my favourite track on this label. It's always reminded me of a more bass-heavy Robert Hood, with vocals! I should probably now this but who does this track sample?

Move Me remixes

Version 1

Version 2

Mood II Swing (Music For Your Ears)

If version one hadn't been made then there would be a big hole in Mark Farina's life, you couldn't listen to a set of his a few years ago without hearing at least the vocal sampled. Mood II Swing in the house in a very big way. I'm not sure about the quality of this red vinyl pressing. Please let me know if it sounds shit.

Joy, Awe, Anguish, Love and Triumph - Chris Nazuka (Classic)

From the "Experience" EP and, sorry for the gushing praise on this post but this is my favourite off Classic. It's psychedelic house man. Derrick Carter's spoken word vocals urge you to "kiss the sky, feel free" and why not? And where is Chris Nazuka now, computer programmer at the MIT or something like that? Same thing with Gemini who also disappeared off the face of the Earth. Some Gemini tunes to come.
