Eddie Drennon & The B.B.S. Unlimited - Do It Nice And Easy

Do It Nice And Easy has to be one of the coolest cuts in the history of latin hustle music. Disco Deviance released just recently Greg Wilson's awesome disco edit of this classic and I'm loving it. The edit works like magic with hot vocals from Donna Summer's Love To Love You Baby. The flipside of the 10th Disco Deviance 12" features Unwind Your Mind i.e. a fresh Greg Wilson edit of Touchdown's Ease Your Mind.

By the way Disco Deviance's excellent mix over at Cosmic Boogie is definitely worth a listen.


The Notations - Take It Slow

I was selecting songs for a slow soul jam mix I'm working on and came across to Take It Slow by The Notations, a great Chicago based vocal group.

It's been a while since the last time I played the tune but now it really hit the spot so I had to stop by and share it with you. It's such a lovely slow jam and the whole album is really solid. I just wish they had gotten more love back in the day and a chance to record more for Curtis Mayfield's Gemigo label.

Deniece Williams - Cause You Love Me Baby

Lately I've been posting quite a lot of uptempo boogie/disco bangers so it's definitely time for some sweet sunday soul.

Cause You Love Me Baby is a lovely two-stepper from 1976 by Stevie Wonder's ex-backup singer Deniece Williams. The tune was originally released on the b-side of Williams' best selling single Free. Both tracks are produced by Maurice White and therefore feature Earth, Wind & Fire as a studio band.

Dâm-Funk - Beautiful Music 4 Beautiful People

Dam-Funk's new mix for Clae has been out for days but I haven't found the time to listen to it. Thank god I gave it a listen today. Over 60 minutes of sweet boogie and electrofunk gems mixed live via all original vinyl releases. No MP3s, no bullshit. You have to respect that.

In case you slept on this like I did, wake up and download Dam-Funk - Beautiful Music 4 Beautiful People [via Clae].


Ben E. King - Street Tough

Street Tough is a sleek little jam by Ben E. King. The tune was released in 1981 and you can hear this but at the same time it has a great classy and soulful blaxploitation feel to it. No wonder since the track is written by the late great Willie Hutch.

The tune is taken from a Warner reissue 12". The original release has an instrumental of Street Tough on the flipside that isn't included in the reissue. Sharing a good quality file of this would be greatly appreciated.

Muscle Shoals Horns - Dance To The Music

Dance To The Music by The Muscle Shoals Horns is an amazing horn driven midtempo party starter. Of course a tune such as this is more suitable for Saturday nights but I've had it on repeat today and I can assure you that it moves you on cold and dark Mondays as well.
