From Scottish DJ Lex Blackmore (aka BlueBoy), we have his 1997 dance hit, “Remember Me”. The track is built around two samples from “Woman of the Ghetto“, a 1969 soul song by Marlena Shaw. From wiki:
“The original song [“Woman of the Ghetto] is polemic to legislators delivered by a woman from a black American ghetto. Near the end is the line: “Remember me? I’m the one who had your babies”, in reference to black maids raising white children for little pay in America. This sample is repeated throughout “Remember Me”, as is a sample of a scat portion of the refrain.”

Dark Sky here with a brilliant dub re-working of a huge hit from Nelly Furtado. From intro to drop, this track sizzles and sounds killer on a loud system. So crank it up and dance!

Fun house ride with Milk & Sugar taking Vaya Con Dios‘s Nah Neh Nah and editing it into something fun and dance-able.

A beautifully dark track that gets a little help from Chase & Status. Chase & Status give it a little dub step action mixed with UK 2-step. Clare was inspired to write The Last Dance after the death of her hero. Michael Jackson. Clare reminds me at time of one my favorite vocalist, Annie Lennox. Clare will be releasing her album this February 28th.

Bag Raiders has just released their full length self-titled album today, which you can preview here. Off this release is track two, Sunlight featuring an AudioDrums favorite on vocals, Dan Black. It’s an upbeat affair with a poppier vocal delivery for Dan Black.
And back in 2009, Bag Raiders track “Shooting Stars (ft. Ted Rhys from Ted & Francis) made my best of list at the number 2 spot.
