Sade Remix ft. Jay-Z – “The Moon And The Sky”

When we heard about Sade‘s forthcoming compilation The Ultimate Collection, we drooled over the mere thought of a Jay-Z remix. To our surprise, Jay went and posted it up on his new blog today. Check the stream for “The Moon And The Sky” below, a wonderful Friday send-off. And there’s much more to come: The Ultimate Collection includes more brand new tracks, and Sade will be on tour with John Legend this summer.

Tour Dates

Jamie Woon Video – “Lady Luck”

A good musical rule of thumb: never forget a Brownswood Bubbler. We were introduced to Jamie Woon on his track “Wayfaring Stranger,” a single off Vol 2 of the Brownswood Bubbler series (2007). Since then, he’s seen working on his debut full-length album to be released April 11th, mirrorwriting. Check out this video for the single “Lady Luck” above,  “Night Air” and a sweet “Lady Luck” remix by Hudson Mohawk.

DJ Center – Remix by DJ Spinna + Making Of The Vinyl

Brooklyn’s own DJ Center hooked up with DJ Spinna to remix “In A Song” featuring Middle Child, a track off the album Everything In Time. With an anthem-like chorus and thumping groove, “In A Song” is packed with bump and boogie, warmth and soul – a natural choice for DJs, dance floors and lovers of modern soul music with an instant vintage feel. DJ Spinna needs no introduction, and he adds his own style to the track here in the “Back from the Future Remix.”

Buy the 12-inch from Fat Beats
