Everyone knows Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”. It’s a classic that I’ve heard remixed a lot. This time 9 Lives does a really classy and great rework here that I think does the original justice while doing something new and fresh with it. Really good remix here!

The music KING creates is so deliberate, so delicate and so intricately crafted that just one song packs the concentrated satisfaction of a normal album’s worth of material. “Mister Chameleon” continues their perfect record.

Ernesto Djédjé was a huge star on the Ivory Coast in his day and listening to “Ziboté,” it makes perfect sense. Catchy vocals, great instrumentation, groovy rhythms, and—although rare for West African records from the 70s—the recording is crystal clear and expertly mixed. One look at the cover and you know it’s gonna be funky.

The elusive Detroit champion Moodymann has been churning out deep, sample-based soul music for late-night dance floors for 20 some years. This self titled LP, in my opinion, is his greatest achievement.

One of the highlights of the Classixx Hanging Garden album was the St. Etienne-esque “A Stranger Love.” LA-based producerSalva takes the indie-dance tune through a very chilled out wringer, but gives the song a more upbeat and stripped down energy.
