Stand On the Word (Larry Levan Mix) – The Joubert Singers

This track has a confusing history; “Originally recorded in 1982 for a gospel album by the Celestial Choir, this was later remixed in 1985 by Tony Humphries, re-credited to The Joubert Singers. However, its more recent cult status was the result of a supposed Larry Levan remix, subsequently discredited, that appeared on a bootleg 12” in 2003.”

What is not confusing, is that it is a top quality hooky banger.

Everyman (Late Nite Tuff Guy Remix) – Double Exposure

Here’s one for you. It’s a late night thudding disco special coming at you from Late Nite Tuff Guy. Is anyone better at taking classics and beefing them up for the dancefloor?

For the traditionalists amongst you, here is the original from 1976. Peak disco.

And if you thought you recognised the sample from somewhere , you did. It’s a classic from 2001 by The Girl Next Door.

Shout out to Dummy Mag and Greg Wilson for reminding me of this one. Link here.

so. candy – so. mind

A lo-fi house EP coming at you by a pretty obscure German artist called so. mind. It all reminds me quite a lot of James Welsh – which is no bad thing.

Three tracks: Candy Groove eases you in; Callin For Ya gives you the jump-up piano riff you didn’t know you needed; and Preaching Life drops a touch of acid into the equation. Tasty.

Bonus track: a sweet, funkier groove (also happens to be the only other track on Spotify…)

If you’re keen on brass-laden house like this, and you’re on the hunt for a playlist to soundtrack your Summer, look no further.
