This is probably my favourite of the Acid Soul series so far. Featuring a selection of deep, dirty groovers from recent months, with a smattering of classics for good measure too. Thanks must go out to the fine folks of the DJ History forum for prompting me to dig out Maurice Fulton's mix of Alice Smith - forgot just how good that record is.
A couple of DJ bits for this weekend. This Friday I'm back at Big In Japan at The Book Club in Shoreditch - http://tinyurl.com/68q9mqx - (I'll be there every month from this point forward as I love it so much I've decided to make Big In Japan my East London residency). On Saturday I'm playing at an invite only number in West London - always a killer party that goes right through the night so if you're going to be in the area on Saturday mail me at email@example.com for details and I'll add you to the guest list.
Also Paper Recordings have asked me to mention that the latest Proviant Audio single (includes the LW remix as well as mixes from Ralph Myers & Flash Atkins) has just hit Juno Download - http://tinyurl.com/6b8byo4

I put this together for this Friday's set at Stretch Disco in Manchester - http://tinyurl.com/63wu6na - mainly because over the years this has become a rather special record on the Manchester club scene. I realise that I'm stepping down a well trodden path with this but I've never had a problem with re-editing classics as long as I feel I'm bringing something new to the party.
In recent years most people have become familiar with either the classic Larry Levan mix, the wonky dubbed out Hot Coins (Red Rack'em) version, or the stompy remake by Luke Unabomber. This edit is based on the original mix (which is still my favourite version of the track) and features some of the best piano/hammond interaction I've heard on a club record. It still brings a smile to my face that a gospel record has become such a big track amongst the 'chemically influenced', but it's the raw spirituality of it's groove that makes it so uplifting.
Incidentally the management of Band On The Wall have kindly given me an unlimited £5 concession list for Stretch Disco this friday. If your thinking of coming on Friday drop a mail with the names you need to firstname.lastname@example.org - the advanced tickets have been selling well so make sure to get your list in ASAP.
Hope you like the edit and hopefully see some of you this Friday in Manchester
