Fresh 4 - Wishing On A Star 12"

My man Dom from Essential Elements blog requested a rip of this gem yesterday. This track was a staple on the Red Alert rap show back in the late 80's and remains an instrumental classic to this day. I chose to present the 2 strongest mixes off the 12". "Smoke Filled Thoughts" is actually just an instrumental version of "Wishing...", but was the version Red used to drop.

Capleton - Cold Blooded Murderer 45"

I have finally figured out how to do MP3 rips of my vinyl, after many hours of tedious experimentation. Here is a 320 rip of one of reggae's all-time classics. Bear in mind this was taken from the original 45", hence a few pops here and there...

I Love Sundays!








Had an incredibly busy weekend, but am just winding down and came across some great vids and music for the blog. Here are a few things to get you motivated for the week to come...


Alexander Robotnick - Problemes D' Amour(Live Footage)
One of dance music's most influential recordings, "Problemes..." remains a cult classic to this day in underground music circles. What I wouldn't do to be in that crowd on that day...



Put the boogie in your body...
This Italian boogie track came out on PTG records in 1983. Nice soulful groove!
