How about an amazing @KAYTRANADA bootleg mix of “Kiss Of Life” by @Sadeofficial?

SADE, “Kiss Of Life” (Kaytra edit) (free DL)

The most delicious surprise for this Tuesday was to find Montreal’s award-winning KAYTRANADA dropping his ‘Kaytra edit’ bootleg mix of Sade’s 1992 hit “Kiss Of Life” (originally from the Love Deluxe album).  Press your local dance club to give it a spin later in the evening after they’re done with bangers and want some different action on the dance floor.  The ‘Kaytra edit’ is a luscious, ever-so-slightly pitched up slice of deep house that’s ideal for any time of day.  I thoroughly enjoy reduxes like this that take risks and strike gold in the process.  Get it for free at the link above while you can!!

“Pretty Girl” by @Clairo gets a future bass makeover from red hot @Whethanmusic

CLAIRO, “Pretty Girl” (Whethan bootleg)

Red hot Chicago 19 year old producer Whethan – currently very active with his recent single “Be Like You” featuring Broods – puts an interesting spin on Clairo’s “Pretty Girl” in a bootleg remix.  He essentially takes the chorus of the Boston singer’s chill cousin of a Lana Del Rey song and flips it sideways, giving it a snappy beat which then evolves into a futuristic synth mini-jam session just more than halfway through.  Clairo’s vocal picks it up again with the chorus and it’s over in a snap.  It’s a cute, breezy remix which definitely shows a different side of Whethan.

Get it while you can: “Talking At The House Party” by @AngeloFerreri1 vs @TheKnocks (@DJKue bootleg)

ANGELO FERRERI vs THE KNOCKS, “Talking At The House Party” (It’s The Kue Bootleg!) (free DL)

Taking their recent single with Captain Cuts, “House Party”, a few steps further, NYC duo The Knocks mash it up with veteran Italian producer Angelo Ferreri’s “I’m Talking To You” in a DJ Kue white label bootleg for “Talking At The House Party”.  This takes the party out of the chilled out house basement and to a fun club setting where you get both house and party in strong doses 🙂  I’m sure this was intended to be a one-off track for fans but it could really have its own life if it desired, including an extended version, because only 2:45 of “Talking At The House Party” makes you want much more.  I’m very happy to have this one – thanks to all concerned for making it happen!  Get it while you can for free before it’s gone!!

Watch for “The Knocks And Friends” shows which are happening in NYC about once a month.  The next one will be on May 24.  ‘No stages, no VIP’s, just friends’ 🙂  That’s the way to do it!
