Crazy P: 'Eruption (Bonar Bradbury Mix)'
Crazy P, formerly known as Crazy Penis (yes!), are a talented house/disco/soul group from the UK that have been around since 1995. Their name originated from one of the members being inspired by a track his flatmate made called "Loco Pinga." In 2008 they changed the name to Crazy P to accomodate their growing popularity and become a bit more palatable to new fans and promoters. They recently dropped the aptly titled Remixed album, featuring the best remakes of their latest two albums. The Bonar Bradberry remix of 'Eruption' from their last album When We On stood out to me. It adds in all the bells and whistles of a great house song, including electro synths and classic house piano, to create a bold dancefloor track.
Satin Jackets: 'You Make Me Feel Good (Deep Mix)'
Back on my deep house kick this week, poolside favorite Satin Jackets are back with a sexy new remix on their new label Eskimo Recordings. Sticking to what they are good at, Satin Jackets have created another glossy, lush song that has the rare ability to remain very simple yet emotive. I suppose this will have to tide us over until we are ready for summer again…
Brett: 'Rap Songs (Them Jeans Remix)'
DC-based electro rock band Brett is releasing their “Rap Songs x Visions” EP on February 26th. 'Rap Songs' is a very fun, whimsical, rock-influenced pop jam featuring guitar and heavy synthesizers. L.A.-based producer Them Jeans, who has remixed artists like Flight Facilities, 2 Door Cinema Club, and even Rihanna ('Stay'), has added his very stylistic and serious house blend to this song. Them Jeans created some interesting nuggets that were not there originally, transforming the song into something almost unrecognizable but still incredibly chic.
