It's a Summer Ting. Packing for a 2 week vacation and put some of my current favourite summer tracks together for the trip.
The mix starts with new versions of familiar classic tracks. The Jamiroquai remix has more of an R'n'B feel to it, and the Blurred Lines remix adds the obvious Marvin Gaye influence that Pharrell was looking to copy. North London's finest, Omar has re-recorded his classic summer anthem and then The Decoders put their mark all over two great soul tracks. The Graingers is a great track that I admit I only just heard - you'll recognise it when you hear it as it's been sampled to death!
The tempo speeds up for the next two tracks - if you don't know Scrimshire then track down his works and everything else on the Wah Wah 45 label. Now.
The mix ends with more Omar and Caron Wheeler (where have you been?!), Zo! (great new album), Al Wilson - surely this fills dancefloors at weekenders? And finally a random choice - I'll let you decide.
Listen & enjoy
