Tag Archives: Re-Edit
Rhye’s music is something special; delicate and understated. Maybe even a little bit too delicate for the dancefloor, which is I put this edit together of their track “Open” for use in my own DJ sets. Several of my DJ compatriots have given me really positive feedback on the edit, and with Rhye’s album Woman out this month, I thought I’d share in case any other DJs found it useful. Enjoy!
I know we’re jumping the gun a little bit on the warm weather jams, but summer’s all in the mind anyway, isn’t it? Here are two new re-edits I put together of some tracks that I’ve been playing on vinyl, and wished they hit just a little bit harder. Nothing too complicated, mostly just adding some low-end, extra percussion, and teasing out the intros a little bit. I dropped both of these in my recent CCC Podcast. Enjoy the tunes!
Here’s a bonus edit I put together to say thank you for all the support I’ve gotten for the ‘Try Otra Vez’ 7″ on BSTRD Boots. We made it to #1 on Turntablelab’s vinyl charts this week, which is pretty major to me. The Lab has been a huge influence on my tastes and development as a DJ, and continues to be a source of music for my mixes, radio show, etc. I used to read their daily arrivals section obsessively, back when folks like Rocktakon were writing the reviews, and got put up numerous gems, and general hilarity. Just having a piece of wax for them to sell felt like a pretty big deal, and seeing it resonate with folks has just been awesome. Big thanks to everyone whose enjoyed the tunes, wherever you’ve gotten them!
This edit is a pretty simple one, mostly letting the original do it’s thing. I’ve kicked a rough version around at parties for a while, and finally finished it up to share it folks. Hope it helps you add a bit of classic boogaloo to your life. Also, shouts out to Urban Dance Squad for putting me up on the track way before I was checking for Fania stuff. Their video had pretty much everything my sixth grade self thought was cool (I even rocked that Charlie Brown shirt for a while). Continue reading
