DJ Elwood - The Colorful Sweater Mix (2008)



If you like 80's shit like Howard Johnson & Kashif, like I do, then check out DJ Elwood's new Colorful Sweater Mix. It's another dope mix following on from the classic "Soul Glo" mix he did before. I have to give Elwood a shout, he always gives me feedback on my posts & he does some nice mixes. Anyway go to his site & download that shit & if you haven't checked Soul Glo get that too.

Funky Child



Last post tonight is Lords Of The Underground with Funky Child. A great track from what some call the golden period of Hip Hop. It's one of the best tracks to use the Skull Snaps break, although those drums make almost any track sound good. Always used to make people go demented when ever I played this out at a Hip Hop night. It's the shit.

Tighten Up


















The first post tonight is Maceo & The JB's with Tighten Up (Live In Dallas - Edit). This is off an EP I got a few years ago which has edits of different funk tracks, not sure who did the edits but it's good shit. The edit of Soul Pride is also good as the drums are extended, I may post this at a later date. Any way check this track for some sick drum action. Come on drums.

Party Groove



Third post tonight is "Party Groove" by Showbiz. The track is off the "Soul Clap" EP by Show & AG, which is one of the best Hip Hop EP's ever in my opinion. Showbiz is one of my favourite Hip Hop Producers also. This is a cut up, sample laden, instrumental, party groove & sounds excellent out in a club. Play it loud & get you're groove on.

You're Too Late


I am going to post a mixed bag of tracks tonight. Starting with a classic from 1980, "You're Too Late" by Fantasy. There is a nice mix from Kiss FM from New Years Eve 1980 of all the top tracks from that year, which was done by Tony Humphries & Shep Pettibone. I think you can still get the mix on: http://www.deephousepage.com/. This is one of the highlights of the mix for me, but there are so many good tracks on there. Anyway still sounds class today in my book so enjoy.
