Tune of the Week - No.3 - 9.11.14

With so much wonderful music knocking around here in the Abstract studio, we thought we'd take the opportunity to showcase a few very special items that are close to our hearts. Our choices for Tune of the Week may be fresh through the door, or decades old - our aim is that they will always epitomise the ethos of AbstractRadio...

After a small hiatus, here's our third tune of the week:

DJ Mark Brickman
- Rhythm Is Love -
Original and remixes
Rambunktious Miami RB009 - 2013/14

Show some appreciation:→

A couple of mixes here for your perusal, both squarely on the house tip, with the original bearing all the hallmarks of quality vocal house, while the remix delves into a deeper, dubbier world. So, not a particularly ground-breaking premise then. And yet, these two tracks still manage to stand out from the crowd. So what makes them special? Well, to start with, this is exceptionally well-made music, sounding pretty fresh within a genre which has been well worn over the last two decades.

First up, from earlier this "summer" (and we use the term in its loosest sense) is the rather excellent "God Gave Us Rhythm" remix. It's deep, it's catchy, it has sexy soulful vocals, it builds; it's brilliant dance-floor fodder. There's also a picture of a lovely looking lady on the sleeve. If, like us, you heard this first, before you had a chance to catch the original, then you'd also quite likely be making it your tune of the week on its own merit (assuming of course that you too indulged in the same self-involved, asinine, fatuous practice of having a "tune of the week").

Which brings us on to Brick's Main vocal (the original mix), released back in those fondly remembered halcyon days of 2013.
Actually, this starts out pretty tamely until the first piano break, where it then it picks up a bit of momentum, utilising the excellent uplifting vocals to build up a decent slice of dancefloor pressure. As an individual track, it's not going to change your outlook on life, but here's where the magic lies - individually, both these tracks are pretty good, strong material as they say, but stick 'em together, and you have a potential riot on your hands - and yes, we'll try and post this little blend for you as soon as...

Here's the original

And here's the remix
