Marvin Gaye – I want you (1976)

Classic in every way. Marvin Gaye is the man and his music is the truth. Nuff said…

Jingo – Fever

Jingo – Fever

Classic Afrobeat from a bygone era. The change up at around the 1.16 mark is what nails it for me. I love how the drum beats rolls and rolls allowing the other instruments to dance around and on top of the beat. Sit back, relax and enjoy this one with the dial turned up.

Mayer Hawthorne – Green Eyed Love (Classixx Remix)

Mayer Hawthorne – Green Eyed Love (Classixx Remix)

A blend of two very different styles from two very different artists. The result is a beautiful reinterpretation that gets better with each listen. One for the lovers.

*Had to post this one as last night I saw Mayer Hawthorne at the Basement, great show, lovely vibe and one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time. Go out and by his album ‘A Strange Arrangement’ you will love it. And on another note LA disco kids Classixx  are touring for Future Classic this February with a Sydney show booked for 12th Feb at the Civic Underground. Get along to the show if you’re feeling the vibe on this track and check futureclassic.com.au for additional details and tour dates. Continue reading
