Soul Searching VII ('Hot tub time machine' episode)

Angie Stone’s latest album ‘Unexpected’ contains quite a few mediocre tracks, but I do like the title track. I extended the song a little bit to make it fit more into this new episode of Soul Searching. And I couldn’t resist the temptation to play ‘Family affair’ by the legendary Sly & the Family Stone afterwards.

The superb longer version of Roxy Music’s classic ‘Love is the drug’ is created by legendary dj Greg Wilson and can be found on his album ‘Credit to the edit 2’. He was one of the pioneers of electronic beats in the late 1970s and is still around to play at international gigs.

And Martin Fry of British new wave (or should I say new romantics?) band ABC has borrowed some of his stage act from Bryan Ferry.

And if you like this episode of Soul Searching, you might like my ‘Radio grooves’ and ‘It’s not hiphop it’s electro’ mixes on Subnav as well. Or you can watch ‘Hot tub time machine’ later this month... ;-)
