  1. North Shore (Idjut Boys Mix) by Cantoma


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    If you are at all into beautiful, sexy downtempo and chill out music then Cantoma is your cup of tea. I first got into Cantoma‘s music when I heard his track Moonsmith off of the Cantoma self titled album way back 6 or so years ago and immediately fell in love. I’m sure if at all you like Thievery Corporation then you will certainly like Cantoma’s music. Finally Out Of Town came out last year and it was basically more of the sexy downtempo music with a elements of world beats thrown in for good taste that I had come to know from Cantoma. It’s just good music that you can put on and chill to in the background. Read a book, sip a glass of wine? Tasty!

    North Shore is one of the cooler cuts off of Out Of Town and I was happy to have discovered this Idjut Boys remix of it. The Idjut Boys elevate the song by increasing the BPMs a bit and giving it a somewhat discoish vibe to it that I’m digging! The vocals are still there but it’s been given also the dreaminess quality has been elevated a bit. It’s nice and I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Swimming Places (Sabaudia Gabin Remix) by Julien Jabre


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Swimming Places was a huge club hit back in 2005 for Julien Jabre. It’s the perfect club house cut with slight touches of early 70s disco sounds. It’s minimal but cool, it’s mellow but groovy it’s perfect. Plus it’s one of those tracks that goes on and on for quite a long time. The original clocks in at almost 11 minutes! It’s classic and it’s only 5+ years old. The single was released with several remixes which pretty darn good. There were remixes by Jerome Sydenham and Peter Heller which were good but did not compare to the masterful original. I loved it. It’s the perfect track to get you into and uplifting mood. It’s not too hard!

    2 years later a new batch of remixes came out because the original Swimming Places by Julien Jabre was such a hit and this time I paid more attention because the Sabaudia Gabin Remix of Swimming Places was just as good if not better than the original! The original Swimming Places has a very island feel to it which should be mentioned but this remix by Sabaudia Gabin elevates the island feel. It’s slightly more upbeat than the original and adds a sort of island jazz house groove to it. It’s cool. Still not a hard dance club cut but it’s got quite a nice chill house groove to it!

    Enjoy both below!

  3. The Dynamics Cover Curtis Mayfield With Move On Up!

    Love this reggaefied remake of the Curtis Mayfield classic Move On Up by The Dynamics. It’s a really nice remake from the band from France and once I heard it it was like this is nice and chill perfect for like background music for chill parties or to chill to in the background. The vocals are laidback and smooth and somewhat sexy. The song is from The Dynamics album Version Excursions which is an album of covers in this style which I highly recommend. Anyone into covers or reggae, soul, funk music should check out the album. Link to iTunes music store below as well.

  4. Italian Secret Service Cover Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I think every song should be remixed, remade, sampled even such a classic song like Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. I love the idea of taking a song that’s recognized in a genre and switching it on everyone and rerecording it in a complete different style. And here it’s done quite well by Italian Secret Service from Irma Records out of Italy. This remake takes me back to the early 60s, innocent jazzy easy listening music. It’s fun and this really works just grab yourself a mai tai and enjoy.

    You should be the judge and listen to both versions below. And if you like Italian Secret Services style then download the rest of their album from Amazon by clicking on the album artwork below.

    This is an awesome downtempo groove version of the Donald Byrd jazz classic Think Twice by Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren Band. Whereas the Donald Byrd version is quite 70s smooth and funky sounding the Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren band version is quite cool and laidback and has the after the clubbing vibe to it. It features the vocals of Christine Sandtorv. Check them both out below.

    The Ralph Myerz version is off of A Special Album which came out in 2003. The Donald Byrd version is off of his Stepping Into Tomorrow album.

    This is pretty darn cool … very fun animated video as well. Cee-lo did a pretty darn nice job remixing Lush Life by Nat King Cole. Worth owning for sure.

  7. The Tango I Saved for You (from the film Gaily, Gaily) (Zeb’s The Tango I Stole From You Remix) by Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra/Henry Mancini


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is such a beautiful piece of music as I love both the original by Henri Mancini and the remix by Zeb. It’s from a film that I have not seen called Gaily, Gaily but anything with Henry Mancini’s music is worth at least checking out. Well the music that is.

    Zeb has added the jazzy downtempo touch to the original and spiced it up a little but still the original can be heard in the new remix.

    This remix is off of the album Cinematic: Classic Film Music Remixed – and contains awesome chill, jazzy, moody downtempo cuts. I love the whole disc. The oddest cut off the disc is an updated remix of a track from the Carrie soundtrack. Boy that sure is creepy! But the disc is definitely worth owning for the rest of the cuts for sure.

    What do you think of the two versions?
