Florence and The Machine – You’ve Got The Love (The XX Remix)
Band of the moment The XX pull out a suprising re-working of Florence and The Machine’s take on the 1986 classic. Opting for something completely different to what they are known for The XX lay down a 2 step/garage re-work that is proper UK style harking back to the early 90’s . One for the lovers.

Chic – I Want Your Love (Todd Terje Edit)
What do you get when Norwegian super disco/house producer Todd Terje takes bits of a classic Disco tune from Chic and mixes it with bits of the classic House track from Moodyman that samples that very Disco tune? In my humble opinion one of the most tasteful re-intepretations of house and disco ever. This edit is and always will be a classic just like the original.
*Friday Funk today is dedicated to my girl Kirsten. Happy B’day lovely one X
Bill Withers – Lovely Day (1971)
Beautifully soulful tune. Everything from the lyrics to the various intrumentation is uplifting and instantly gives you that much needed smile to brighten up your day. Top 5 for sure.
