Summer Charts

I have to take a short break from the What produzentin eats theme week as I go on a holiday for a couple of days. I probably will have some very relaxing pictures later this week.

But first, here are my summer charts and another Larry Levan remix for your mp3 collection. I downloaded a mix of Winners by Manfriday in June. After a few listens I really wanted to have the vinyl of the song, so I orderd a copy on ebay. It turns out, the version on the official release is totally different, sounding more like a cheap 80ties dance track. Soon I found out, that this Larry Levan demo mix is only available on a bootleg 12 inch and on a japanese compilation CD. I still have to track down either of them. Anyway, enjoy.

They don’t seem to love you more
When you’re winning
They don’t seem to love you
Nobody really wants you
When your loosing
They don’t really love you

Winners – loosers
What’s the good side of you

Oh, the World Cup has arrived at my crib. Superschum and H. are staying over for a few nights and they brought this adorable Nutella ball. I love it so much, guess my diet has to wait. Schum and H. made me watch my first World Cup game from start to finish, Germany vs. Argentina. I’m in love with Odo now (this was easy, right?). Make sure to read his A-Z.

  1. Fox N’ Wolf – Claws Against Knives (Todd Terje Remix) – Kitsune
    This is my summer hit. Squeaky vocals and bubbling beats. I wanted to post the song but I am afraid the lovely guys from Kitsune might sue my little ass. It’s on the Kitsune Maison 2 compilation. Here samples of the song here and here. Wow.
  2. Jamie Lidell – When I Come Back Around (Freeform Reform) – Warp
    This is from his Multiply Additions remix album. After all the Jamie – Prince comparisons he finally gets a Prince beat in the mix: Raspberry Beret provides a perfect backdrop for the song.
  3. Man Friday – Winners (Larry Levan Demo Mix)
  4. Kirk Franklin – Looking For You – Gospocentric
    I heard it first on the radio but didn’t know who it was. I wanted to have this song so badly as it re-sings the hook from Patrice Rushen’s disco classic Haven’t You Heard. Then I found it at fourfour.
  5. Jimpster feat. Diamondancer – A Love Like This – Freerange
    This sounds like part 2 of Delano Smith feat. Diamondancer – A Message For The DJ (Jimpsters Red Light Remix). Diamondancer sings/reads her lyrics above the forward grooving Jimpster beats. Listen.
  6. Peaches – Downtown – XL Recordings
    I haven’t figuered out which Prince beat she is sampling. Sounds a bit like Vanity 6 or Apollonia 6.
  7. Lisa Shaw – Let It Ride (Speakeasy Remix) – Naked Music
  8. Snax And Ianeq – Fill Me Up (M.A.N.D.Y. Edit) – Get Physical
  9. Christian Rottler – Feuer – Freundinnen
    The song finally sees the light of day, I had the promo version for a while now and I still like the original singer-songwriter version best. The remixes are more in the electro vein. Listen to more Christian Rottler songs on his homepage.
  10. Only Freak feat. Rasiyah – Can’t Get Away (From Your Love) (Solid Groove Remix) – Freerange
