Sunday – Deep House remix 2 for 1. 22/01/12. Sinc, Daniel Sanchez – New Day (Original mix). Nina Simone – Feeling Good (E-Gnat New Dawn remix)

Sunday’s child stopped watching Dr. Phil,

Hello my name is Demitria Guynes, I should have been a Gynacologist, but I was too hot for that, as a compromise I shaved my pubes and married Bruce Willis.

Hello my name is Eleanor Gow, I would have made a fantastic farmer, but I had ‘The Body’ to sell underwear so I cowered from from the Gow and became a model.

Hello my name is Caryn Johnson, I could have been a secretary, but comedy was in my blood, however being the only Black Jew, I didn’t feel I stood out enough.

Hello my name is Andrew Barrymore, I guess I was a dude, but Spielberg expressly wanted a baby sister for Elliot (there is no established proof behind this one, but as it’s a blog, I’m keeping it in).

Hello my name is Eunice Waymon, I was born to be in the Church Choir, but I had a good feeling that I had more to offer the world. So I prepared for a new day, changed my name to Nina Simone, released over 40 albums, took on a large role of the 1960’s civil rights movement and hid from the IRS in Barbados whilst having an affair with their Prime Minister. Good times, good times. (oh and I have already been blogged about here for a sweet tech house remix to Sinnerman).

You don’t need a pseudonym to approach life as a new day, it just takes a change in attitude. You know that bird you hit with your car last week and didn’t stop to check if it was alright? You know that cheeseburger you ordered yesterday when you know it will affect your IBS, but you didn’t give a shit (well you did technically for a couple of hours last night)? What about that hooker that you dined & dashed (is there a more appropriate hooker terminology for that, I feel that there is, please any ladies of the night reading this, let me know) from a month ago, you could have sworn you knew her and then looking at old photo albums you realize that you will never be able to go to a family reunion again. Sure there are a lot of shoulda/coulda/woulda’s in life, but if you wake up in the morning with a new ‘tude, let yourself feel as free as the birds, the trees, the stars.. Look I’m no hippy, just listen to the damn song.

Upon listening to today’s remix of Nina Simone’s – Good Feeling, I can picture this version over practically any stylish gangster film. Close your eyes, press play (good luck doing that with your eyes closed) and then imagine the trailer for Oceans 11, Layer Cake, Snatch, Go, Bambi, In Bruges and others films that all impress a fast paced ostentatious atmosphere of the best things in life; guns, sex & money. Like Mia Wallace waking to find an adrenaline needle in her heart, we all know how the majority of these stories end though; with the realisation of a new day ahead, if they can only leave their old days behind.

Sinc & Daniel Sanchez have delivered this steamy release to accompany our Chianti fueled Sunday afternoons. This Deep House mix is essential listening for anyone with an educated ear who can appreciate the intuitiveness of the selective sampling to modernize the classy Jazz clubs of old, mixed with a hip uptempo percussion that invokes the message behind the original. They certainly have brought about good feelings for a new day, giving new life to the legendary soul soothing Simone.

Just when I thought I was done for the day, I came upon this remix by the poetically named E-Gnat (I guess if the poem was about electronic insects). The intro gives the song a feeling about a new day for all mankind (think 2001 – A Space Odyssey opening), with the soulful deep feminine voice of god letting the surviving monkeys know this is the way life will be for all.

I feel like I should be meditating to this remix with it’s beautiful saxophone harmony, filtered vocals & relaxing percussion that sends you into such a trance-like state that you will feel begin to feel like Derek Zoolander, but instead of wanting to kill the Malaysian Prime Minister, you want to show him how grand love can be sandwiched between two Finnish dwarves and a Maori tribesman.

Alinement – Barack Obama vs. Mitomi Tokoto – Obama’s Arena (Alinement mashup of Mitomi Tokoto vs. Biggy&Smalls). *MONDAY’S REMIX IN POST BELOW*

Shameless plug time for my recent mashup supported by Biggy&Smalls.

Whether or not you are a fan of Barack Obama, the man speaks well, and none better than his Election Night speech. It was a proud moment for Americans and a lot of people around the world, I know as a New Zealander that I was.

However, it is three years later and the man needs some energy, we all do, so I hope you enjoy this jazzy energized mashup of Mitomi Tokoto – Sax Arena vs. Biggy&Smalls’ – Americana.

If you liked this, please have a listen to my recent mix; Change Is Coming, as it follows on from this mashup.

Change is (still) coming!

NEW MIX – Alinement – Change is Coming

Thank you to everyone for being so patient whilst I put together this mix, from the transition of moving countries and work, I wanted to put together a mix to be proud of to celebrate my big changes in life.

My family is into traditional forms of Music with Jazz, Opera & Classical and haven’t had much time for my love of House music. This mix is intended to help change their minds and broaden the views of anyone who isn’t aware of how complex, beautiful and varied House music can be.

The mix starts out with my mashup of Mitomi Tokoto’s – Sax Arena and Biggy & Smalls – Americana which puts a good new spin on Barack Obama’s inauguration speech. Coming into election year soon, I think you will like its energy. From there, the mix evolves into a bouncy story of Jazz, Swing, Tech, Soul & Pop. Please take a listen and let me know what you think, there is a free download link provided. I hope you enjoy the ride.

Monday – Electro Pop Remix 07/11/11. Empire Of The Sun – We Are The People (Jimmy2sox remix)

Monday’s child was Jazzy.

Empire of the Sun have become a Global sensation, and by Global, I mean Australian, as it seems all the good Electro Pop comes out of Australia nowadays. From the likes of Miami Horror, PNAU, The Presets and Sneaky Sound System, if you have seen Empire of the Sun you will know why they their fame has reached more corners of the world. A modern day rock opera with dance inducing ballads and a propensity to love thy neighbour.

We Are The People is one of their biggest hits (who are we kidding, they only have 5 songs, but we dance along to their other stuff until we hear something we recognize, and this one you will) and stand alone ranks amongst the top Electro Pop tunes this decade. However a little known guy named Jimmy2Sox, so little I can only find a myspace page for him, remixed this beauty of a tune with some sweet sweet Jazzy House. A perfect way to start off your week.
