Stranger To Happiness - Sharon Jones - Daptone

After the shock of a cancer diagnosis (apparently caught very early according to doctors) revealed at the tail-end of last year, which resulted in cancelled tour dates and a delayed album release, it’s perhaps a bit of a surprise to see this single released right now. Yet another anthemic soul belter, this only bodes well for this modern day queen of soul. Prayers to you Miss Jones. 

Renegade Master - Takeydo & Nick Wolanski - NumberOneBeats

Wildchild's 'Renegade Master' was a top twenty hit in the late Nineties and at the time was something of a genre-crossing ear-opener. Fatboy Slim did a great remix in his own inimitable style too and even today both versions still stand as great dancefloor tracks. Nick Wolanski & Takeydo really bring nothing new to the party and in fact leave quite a few good bits behind. Points awarded are for reminding me of the previous versions.

Pulse - Ad Brown & Shawn Mitiska - Black Hole Recordings

A lesser-seen instrumental from the usually very vocal Ad Brown here, possibly down to Shawn Mitiska’s influence. ‘Pulse’ develops into a cool, chugging, borderline austere prog-trancer that leans heavily and confidently on the panned, phased sweeps of its minimal lead line. If it’s all too stripped down for you, Ali Wilson’s ‘TEKELEC Remix’ gives it one hefty shove in the direction of the main room. 

Ready To Pump (DJ Paul Early Rave Mix) - Paul Elstak - Rige

Featuring on the hardcore legend's latest artist album, 'Ready To Pump' is a nostalgic nod to Paul Elstak's roots, and the early '90s hardcore sound. Bouncy kicks, off-beat percussion and pitched rap vocals bring all the good vibes of the happier Dutch sound of yesteryear, before the drop into classic Fugees track 'Ready Or Not'. This track is an old skool kick-back that doesn't sound out of place in an upfront playlist. Set finisher for me for the foreseeable future.
