TRACK OF THE DAY
This is still my favourite mash - the Turbomen's 2004 collage of Erykah Badu's "On and On" with Quincy Jones' "Summer In The City", known as the "Summer In Sydney remix". It's somewhere between mash and remix, and it's quite beautiful.
I've included three versions in this download :
- The "Summer in Sydney Remix" (above) is ... err.. the 'original'.
- The "Summer In Sydney Dub" is the same without the vocal - essentially a re-edit of the Jones track.
- The "Summer in Sydney Break" (above) is one that I came across on Soulseek when I originally searched for this. Someone, somewhere added a breakbeat to parts of the first mix, and it works well. (Also slightly better quality than the first mix, which has a little too much "sizzle" on the "s" sounds).
There's one for sale at Discogs (but not with the breakbeat)
This was going to be a quick post before bed ... then I decided to make a cover. So have a listen and enjoy some of whatever Erykah's smoking in the pic above.
