Lyn Collins – Rock Me Again (ET Extension)

LYNCOLLINS-Nice1

A while back we asked one of our favorite selectors Eugene Tambourine to edit Lyn Collins’ Rock Me Again and he exceeded all of our expectations. We’ve been sitting on this edit for a while and have occasionally dropped it as our last track of the night. Judging by the reaction on the dance floor, ET has nailed this one.

The original track is about 3.5 minutes but 2.5 into it, the song abruptly ends with a boing sound then restarts. It’s an odd production that really disrupts the energy of the track. ET thankfully removed that strange interruption and extended the track in a true to the sound fashion. Here for the first time is an exlusive download of ET’s edit, please enjoy!

Yvonne Fair

Yvonne Fair was always a favorite of mine, her brashness, hutzpah along with that hardened raucous voice resonated deeply with me the first time I heard…
It Should Have Been Me”. I was in Portland; OR. at a friend’s house and right there in front of me was “The Bitch Is Black”, a solo recorded LP and a must for any record collector. Get it now.

I contacted Eugene Tambourine in Brooklyn to see if he’d be interested in doing an exclusive rework for us of Yvonne’s classic “Funky Music Sho Nuff Turns Me On”, the result is (E.T.’s Loops of Fury) which has been described as the definitive version of the song. “It’s very loopy, but kinda organic and structured at the same time. I was inspired by the groovy space between her main vocal bits actually.” says Eugene.

Another little known tidbit Diana Ross’ Lady Sings the Blues from 1972 watch it again; Yvonne Fair is in it as is Isabell Sanford and a slew of others. Enjoy.

Destination – Move On Up

One of the best things about digging for records with friends is that sometimes they find something you might overlook. This is one of those records. After I’d already checked out, Eugene Tambourine handed me this with a glowing recommendation.

From what I can tell, Destination was a one off vocal disco project by Iranian producer Elton Farokh Ahi. Move On Up was definitely the biggest hit from their only release from 1979.

This is certainly one of the best discofied cover songs ever, on par with Rosebud’s Have a Cigar.

Exclusive Mix 008 : Eugene Tambourine

Eugene Tambourine is one of those rare DJs whose broad-ranging tastes can educate, transport, confuse, elate and inspire all at the same time. I first heard Eugene at the Seattle Eagle way back in the day, well early 90s. His sets were, and still are, transformative and constantly evolving journeys.
