Ashford & Simpson

The husband and wife team of Ashford & Simpson (A&S) brought us so many wonderful songs. They really helped to craft some of those most memorable sounds from the 70’s and well into the 1980’s that certainly helped define my life. This edit comes from Valique in Moscow, Russia. I hope you like it as much as I do. Enjoy!

And now for something new, well not completely new. V (aka Valique) who’s real name is Valentine Golovachev, hails from Moscow, Russia. He’s been turning out rock-solid and tight as hipster jeans edits for quite a while. His 5th volume of edits was recently released, and I must say it’s his best effort so far.

Bottom Forty’s own spaceotter turned me onto Valique last year when we were throwing our weekly party at The Cuff. He dropped V’s edit of Betty Wright‘s “Slip And Do It” which immediately sent me running up to the booth to find out who was behind this masterful edit.
