RAG N BONE MAN: Human (MANOSJMT edit) (2017) Free download

Human Rag N Bone Man Manosjmt editRating: ★★★★★ The indefatigable Manosjmt turns his sights to Rag N Bone Man for his latest edit. Having clearly identified a singer with soul, he then sets to work identifying the missing element from last summer’s hit. It’s a double time stomping beat of course which means that this edit delivers the unexpected sound of Rag N Bone Man keeping the faith in a neo-northern soul style

ALPHONSE MOUZON: I’m Glad That You’re Here (DON DAYGLOW edit) (2017) Free download

Im Glad That Youre Here Don Dayglow Ewan HoozamiJazz fusion drummer Alphonse Mouzon was perhaps not the most likely person to release late period disco hit I’m Glad That You’re Here in 1981 but he clearly wasn’t a man to be pigeonholed. Someone else who isn’t a man to be pigeonholed is Don Dayglow. Nope, not another hangover from the devil’s own musical decade but the dj/producer hitherto known as Ewan Hoozami who’s just

CHRISTIANA: Lights More Lights (MANOSJMT edit)(2017) Free download

Lights More Lights Christiana ManosjmtNot a man to sit idly and twiddle his thumbs when it’s colder than an inuit’s outside toilet, Manosjmt has been having a fiddle around with 70s and 80s Greek folk singer Christiana. Not literally you filth mongers! I meant he’s tweaked her old folk pop hit Lights More Lights by dint of adding a dusty break and created a slinky lil downtempo disco funky number. You can fit this one right in there

BASEMENT FREAKS: Blackened Hypno (ACDC vs. The Notorious B.I.G.)(2017) Free download

Blackened Hypno ACDC Biggie Basement FreaksRating: ★★★★★ He might like to spread his love across bass music genres all the way from moombah to reggae but you can always rely on Basement Freaks to deliver a floor-filling banger driven by a boom-bap beat every now and then. In this case – a juggernaut mash-up combining the not under-sampled Back In Black from Australia’s evergreen heavy rockers ACDC and the
