Shadow dancing across the floor


It looks like the Shadow Dancing Project continues, cause I just can't believe my ears with the "Across the floor" track that Deadly Sins and Giant Cuts brought to my speakers.



Andy Gibb's original tune is transformed into this frisky, contemporary sound and still can't leave all the creative producers out there alone -my guess is it never will. Not to mention the "Cloudy days" track, that gave a new, bouncy meaning to "Taste of bitter love" by Gladys Knight & the Pips.

Bring it on!

With bells on

Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" may have spinned Linda Blair's head around, but the Champ's Boys Orchestra disco, synthpop version definitely came close to spinning mine. In a different way. Let's see how you can deal with this gem.


Believe me when I say I truly didn't mean to wish you "happy new year" with music bringing the Exorcist in mind...

Happy new year, mates!

You and me turns thirty

Both thumbs up for the choice of sample, for the edit and for reminding me Round Trip's version which I like a teeny-tiny bit better than the original. And for bringing it back 30 years later.



Pabzzz soundcloud page is like the perfect Christmas and New Year's gift, so you better find the time to check it out and kick off this new year ahead of us with atmospheric jazzy hip-hop sounds that kick ass.

Have a great time y'all. And groove it up a notch.  :-)

Stroke from the past

Hello everyone! Just got back from 1998 where I accidentally fell a few minutes ago when I pressed play to this track, while I was scanning through some files in my hard drive.


Although it was never my favorite and I haven't heard it in at least 12-13 years, oh-my-god, what a nice surpirse that was! You can tell how excited I got from all the exclamation marks I used in this post!

Melba reworked

69-year-old Melba must be feelin' quite thrilled and enthusiastic that in ending 2014, beginning 2015, young people still get inspired by her '70s-'80s songs and experiment on them, bringing them back to our ears and soul. This is one of the latest edits that I came accross by Moscow's Rare Cuts.



Love's comin' at ya, from the forgotten 1982, right back at ya, reworked and refreshed!

Thank you Melba for the great legacy of your music and your voice, thank you Paul Lawrence Jones III for writing this song and thank you Rare Cuts for bringing it back to my speakers.

Take a look at an older post about editing Melba here

Young boy in a world without love, can you see where you're going?

There have been quite a few upsetting things goin' on in Greece the past month, provin' once more –not that there was ever any doubt- that the government and the state is as rotten as hell would be if it actually existed and that most citizens of this country -and other countries as well for that matter- are so ignorant and indifferent, it hurts. 

Having said that, this post today ain’t about sharing music. It’s about sharing the very profound will of mine that someday we will all be able to search for our inner selves, leave the superficial, vain and materialistic part of us behind, unite and truly love each other, so that we finally understand that we need no fancy stuff, we need nobody to rule us, nobody to make decisions for us and nobody to say what’s right and what’s wrong.

Cause everything could only be right then. And people wouldn’t have to go on hunger strikes, facing death, to claim human rights.


Stretch your mind and unite, people. There’s your power.
It ain’t cool to be an outsider in this.
