  1. The Bucketheads Sample Movin’ by Brass Construction With Got Myself Together

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Taking disco and sampling it into house music in the 90s was a regular thing. It happened over and over again and I’m so happy that that era happened because two of my favorite styles of music had blended together to become an awesome style – disco house! Disco and House rule! Anyway this is a great example of that style. Take a Chicago house master like Kenny Dope and add a famous disco song from the 70s by Brass Construction, shake it up and end up with a classic 90s club hit by The Bucketheads!

    Got Myself Together was the second hit off of The Bucketheads one and only awesome album All In The Mind didn’t become as big a hit as The Bomb was but it’s just as good if not better than The Bomb. I’m sure everyone remember The Bomb with the classic line “These Sounds Fall Into My Mind”? Then you will for sure remember The Bucketheads. The album All In The Mind even contained a 15 minute version of The Bomb for non stop beats. It’s a classic track now 15 years strong! Phew those were good times in the 90s! Weren’t they? All In The Mind is chock full of tracks utilizing samples from bands such as Chicago, Level 42, Atmosfear and Linda Clifford. Boy if you love music that is made up of samples then this album needs to be in your collection!

    It was also so unique to discover a Latin/jazz version of Movin’ called Movin’ On by Ray Camacho of the Ray Camacho Band. All I have to say is that the 70s rules when it comes to music! Loads of cool hip styles were running all over. Kind of like the 90s and what’s starting to happen now again! Yay! Keep em comin’!

  2. Broke by Sneaky Fox Samples Groove Is In The Heart by Deee-Lite

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a fun bouncy track that does a great job at sampling Deee-Lite’s hit from the early 90s, Groove Is In The Heart. The track Broke basically uses a loop of the main beat/bassline from Groove Is In The Heart and adds some touches of Latin influenced beats and makes it into a cool fun lounge style upbeat cut. Sneaky Fox has other cool cuts that are certainly worth checking into when you have a chance. So once I heard this cut I’m sure more interested in what else they’ve released!

    Louie Vega does a great cover of the disco classic Thousand Finger Man by Candido. Love this very Latin inspired track as was the original by Candido. This track comes right off the Elements Of Life “Extensions’ CD which I highly recommend for a bunch of other awesome tracks by Louie Vega all remixed. Sexy Latin inspired house music. This Thousand Fingered Man and along with the Mon Amour (DJ Gregory Remix)are the winners on the release. Pretty darn cool.

  6. Rock Your Body by Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Justin Timberlake’s Rock Your Body is a fun disco inspired pop track and was a huge hit for him. But when Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra remade it they changed the sound and made it mostly instrumental. It still sounds like Rock Your Body but now they’ve added a loungy, jazzy touch to it with a Latin inspired big band groove. You can still hear that the 70s sound is still there.

    What Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra has done with all the tracks on Hits The Hits is taken all popular tracks by pop artists and made it all something you can play in the background without and of the lyrics getting in the way too much. It’s the perfect background music if you want the hits but you don’t want the lyrics.

    It’s a great collection and it’s similar to other collections like the popular Nouvelle Vague series of 80s new wave tracks remade jazzy and loungy. Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra’s Hits The Hits is a fun, hip lively collection of pop tracks and Rock Your Body is one of the better cuts on the disc.

    Check it out and let me know what you think of this version compared to Timberlake’s version.

  7. Sweet Dreams by Señor Coconut

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Well the big hit Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This by Eurythmics will always go down in pop music history. It’s been remixed and covered countless number of times but I like this version because it just does not sound so much electronic or synth poppy as the original. It’s very loungy with the added Latin flavor that I’ve come to love from Señor Coconut. I think it’s great and it makes a great track to chill to. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the original and I love it alot but this completely different version is a nice change to the classic piece of music.

    It’s def worth a listen. Check it out and let me know what you think.
