DOWNLOAD: AHU – SUNSPLASH FESTIVAL MIX
Usually I don’t have to cruise the net to find interesting music topics to keep y’all posted. But once in a while I get curious. This time my curiosity paid off and I can now present an electronic mix comprised of killer tracks by up and coming Turkish DJ Ahu. The compilation serves as a taster for the upcoming Sunsplash Festival in Antalya, Turkey. It’s the first one in a series of mixes you can take peek at on the Sunsplash Festival blog.
This particular Sunsplash Festival mix works like it’s suppose to because it gives me the urge to catch a plane … so can be where the action is from 22nd till the 29nd of May 2011.

I know, I know … this is the kind of stuff that needs to be blogged at the beginning of the weekend and not at the end. So if you are reading this in realtime (meaning on sunday morning or evening) I apologize upfront.
The must share I am reffering to are the visuals to the Icelandic trio Steed Lord’s latest “123 If you want me” .
Steed Lord consists of producers M.E.G.A and DEMO and vocal diva KALI and in September of 2010 they released their 2nd full lenght studio album “Heart II Heart”. Before their second release Steed Lord moved their headquarters from Iceland to Los Angeles and the result is a new direction which sounds soulful and is heartpounding yet melancholy. To get a taste of how that sounds you can stream and download the Heart II Heart mini mix below …

Renditions, remakes or covers are nothing new and the only way I can actually appreciate them is when artists manage to take an existing track and make it their own. Theophilus managed to do just that when he created his version of Nat King Cole’s Calypso blues.
A couple of months ago we featured a radio snippet of Theophilus version on the blog and the good thing is that although he added some flavour to give the track a more comtemporary sound, he kept it tastefully close to the original track. I didn’t think it possible to take this track to an even higher level but as it seems DJ Natural Self found a way to kick Theophilus’ Calypso Blues up a few nodges.
