Its mainly about the re edits, re mixes or reworks this week… Call them what you like but there are some fantastic productions coming out at the moment. Kicking things off with Mark E taking on Labelle’s live cut of Moon shadow. This remix is going to be massive! And deservedly so, jumping in with a groove played at the end of the original, this flips it round and reworks it for maximum effect!

Other mixes to listen out for, we got two different takes on Ruben Blades this week but for me, Nauts remix is the clear winner… Also a first play for the new rework of Ed Meme & the Forms upcoming on Straightup Recordings. Hope you enjoy!

New material from Red Astaire, Ok Ma & Beats for Tea? All strong stuff anyway, stop reading and get listening!

Enjoy the show!
