Picks of the Week
Hanna Hais "I love America" (ATAL Music Records CD Promo)
The first single taken from Hanna Hais' upcoming album is a cover of the 1978 disco classic "I love America" by Patrick Juvet. With DJ Meme on production and a 14 piece orchestra in the studio, the result is simply stunning, having that distinctive old-school orchestration to it will love those classic disco productions for, while sounding fresh and crisp as if that sound just has been invented. Patick Juvet's timeless classic is back in this magnificent interpretation by Hanna Hais that has anthem written all over it.
The Thompson Project featuring Gary L. "Messin' with my mind" (Remixes)(SoulFuric Records CD Promo)
Ten years ago, Keith Thompson teamed up with Gary L. for "Messin' with my mind" which became an instant classic. Now right in time for summer 2008 this anthem returns with a phat remix package. First up are London's The Layabouts who rework the track into an absolutely irresistible, deeply thumpin' affair featuring lush keys and chords that perfectly accompany the vocals. Their dub mixes go even deeper and give the track an intense hypnotic vibe. Up and coming producers Guy Robin contribute a wonderfully orchestrated classic interpretation to the package that is all about a soulful groove, classy strings and jazzy keys, while Phonic Funk fire things up on their take that features catchy synths over a powerful, relentless groove. Completing the package are the classic UBP and Jazz'N'Groove mixes, making this an essential package not to be missed.
