    Pretty cool sampling job by Blue Boy for the track Remember Me. Blue Boy is Scottish DJ, Alexis ‘Lex’ Blackmore and this is his one and only hit. This one dates back to 1997 so it’s 12 years old now but the sample is a live version of Marlena Shaw’s Woman Of The Ghetto. The live album it comes from is Live In MontreauxThis live version of Woman Of The Ghetto was pretty popular for sampling back in the late 90s and early 2000s. It was also sampled by St. Germain for this Rose Rouge track off of Tourist. Very cool stuff. Check out both Blue Boy and original live version of Women Of The Ghetto below. The samples is basically Marlena Shaw singing … “Remember me … I’m the one who had your babies”. It’s perfect. The song reached pretty high in the charts in the UK but here in the states it was pretty underground.

    Here’s a synthy trademark Chromeo sounding mellow cover of the Eagles 70s soft rock/easy listening track I Can’t Tell You Why. Listening to the original gives me goosebumps as I have a love/hate relationship with this track. A good and bad time in my life. But the remake by Chromeo is quite fun and slightly quirky as they are known for producing. Check them out below. This cover is released as part of the DJ Kicks mix CD. It’s perfectly placed in the mix. The disc also contains some flashback 80s tracks by France Joli, Kano, Donna Allen and Leo Sayer. A great mix for anyone into synth dance pop with an 80s sound. Check out the fun promo film as well. It’s shot in the streets of Paris. You know what now that I think about this Chromeo cover at first listen it sounds like an 80s Hall & Oates track. Hmm?
