10. "Mark Johns feat. Brasstracks (Prod. Alexander Lewis)" - 5 South
You like horns? You like it a little funky funky? Then you are in luck! Mark Johns is a benevolent birthday celebrator, giving you a little special something on Mark Johns' very own name day.
9. “Cracks” - Sam Sure, Black Butter Records
Same Sure sure does feel them feels. With a strong voice with a distinct British accent that empowers and emboldens, Sam Sure is the sort of artist you always want to hold onto. It is a slower song, but still it is vast in its execution and intention.
8. "Sky High" - Gorgon City, ITH Ltd
Gorgon Vibes! Gorgon City does it again with another hit that clearly broadcasts its intention... to fly sky high! A song released exclusively on All Gone Peter Tong & Gorgon City, this is a selection that will fly you up above the clouds and let you float there. While you are chilling in your cloud city, look to the horizon and you can see the faint glimmers of summer.
7. "The Talk" - Friend Within feat. Camden Cox, He Loves You
Kick back and just truly kick back with this latest collaboration from Friend Within & Camden Cox. This is a great, relaxed little something that draws attention to Friend Within's subtle mastery. He may not show his face, but he definitely shows he is everything great when it comes to making excellent music. The keyboard breakdown toward the end really caught me off guard. And left me overjoyed!
6. “Tourist Trap (Soul Clap Remix)” - 1111 (Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy), Rumors
Now this is how you remix. Taking an already amazing something and sprinkling as much amazing dust on it as possible, Soul Clap delivers a mellow fresh rework of Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy's deep house 1111 project.
5. “Build the Cities” - Karma Fields feat. Kerli
Here we have something absolutely magical that is genre defiant and every bit independent. Karma Fields certainly builds something monumental here, and it has a vibrancy that inspires and energizes. It's impressive in its surprising nature, hence my emphasis on its magic!
4. “Tell Me (Prince Fox Remix)” - Atlas Bound
Chillmotional. That is a new word that will do for this remix. It dives deep and moves with power at a molasses pace.
3. "I Had This Thing (Joris Voorn Remix)" - Royksopp, Green
Joris Voorn for emperor of everything awesome. The official nomination just happened right here and right now, all thanks to his Royksopp remix. It is a song that has had its fair share of remixes already, but Joris Voorn just poured all of his heart and soul into this song. It is a song that is soft, innovative and huge in scope. It is pretty damn romantically epic if I have to put it bluntly.
2. “Gonna Do Me (20Syl Remix)” - Moar & Sarsha Simone, Trad Vibe Records
All sorts of future funky-funky right here. It is on the more relaxed side and with a major retro emphasis. Taking you back to take you forward, it is a recipe we love again and again!
1. “Sky Lounge” - Project Pablo
A selection brought to our attention by XLR8R... And by god, Project Pablo is a groove god. Limber up and get stretched, this song is going to require an all night dancing sesh!
