A good starting - Broken Bells

 I heard this song  in the beggining of 2010 in the radio, I knew at first that this will be one of  my favourite songs till my death :)

I usually listen to it when I need to do the programming stuff for my IT work, because the track is not too fast and I can concentrate while im working. A youtube comment writes: " as fast as time flys, it seems like this song slows it down"..:. So its a "chill" music but the other side the song has the "power". I actually really like it !

Anyways, Broken Bells ,the band, was composed of artist-producer Brian Burton (better known as Danger Mouse) and James Mercer. They formed in the end of 2008 silently, then the project was first announced on   2009 September.

Their starting was not bad. They ended at the #3 place of US rock chart with this song: "The High Road".

An oldie hit from Tatyana Ali - Boy, you knock me out

I have just sumbled upon a new remix from Tatyana Ali and ,alas,  I don't have any info who created this mix, but its very good :)

Well, the song "Boy you knock me out" (featuring Will Smith) is  a well  known hit from 1998, which was  peaked at #3 in the UK single.

Anyways, Tatyana Ali was a  regular child performer on Sesame Street starting in 1985, and I still remember her from my childhood :-)

So I found this remix of "Boy you knock me out" and I dont really know who made and when, but its absolute better than the original song ! So its deserved to shown up on 

Axwell remix and the Soulsearcher

The Soulsearcher "project" was started in England. They released two albums:

  • The first name was "Can't get enough". It was a big hit. In 1999 they scored a #8 place in the UK Singles Chart. 

Soulsercher album

  • The second one is "Do It To Me Again" , which reached a 32. position in the UKChart
The original song was sampled from a 1978 song, named "Let's Lovedance Tonight". You can listen it here.

This from Axwell is a remix which I think one of the best remixes of this song.

A short interview with Axwell from Faux (you can read the whole here).

Charles Darbyshire caught up with a third of the Swedish House Mafia, superstar DJ Axwell, to discuss his music, his latest single ‘Nothing But Love’, the current kit in his DJ booth & of course… ‘sexy parties’ in Ibiza.

For those of us who might know nothing about you Axwell, how would you describe your role within the global dance project. What makes you Axwell?
I’ve been one of the guys responsible for uplifting energetic vibes over the last 8 years, doing a lot of remixes and a lot of my own tracks such as ‘I’ve Found You’, ‘Kill The Vibe’ and ‘Watch The Sunrise’. Basically trying to create my own vibe in house music over the last couple of years.

And here is the song (best for summer :D )
I think it's better than the origial song, because this remix is much more 'energetic', but its possible its just my opinion..
Anywayz, enjoy !

CJ Lewis, an "old" one

CJ Lewis is originally a reggae singer, this one is from 1994, the album name was "Sweets for My Sweet".
The track name is "R to the A". This is one of the best tracks I've heard. If you listen to it, you will hear that every note, and every word is in the right place. The song has the power!
By the way its a 90's speciality, I think we won't hear like this anymore.

A comment from youtube:
Recorded BEFORE the crack dealers started setting up their own PR studios with their stables of no talent drug promotion artistes...back when music was positive and just made you wanna move.
It's one of the most unerrated songs.. Enjoy!
