Little Boots x Todd Edwards

“Pure Fun” is the only way I can describe what Mr. Todd Edwards created with this remix of Little Boots’ latest single “Headphones”. Todd digs in with a deep 2-step shuffle that explodes into a huge Pop chorus with “la la’s” that will be stuck in your head all day. This is a perfect summer jam.

Jamaica x Alvin Risk

Dear Interwebs,

Do you know what happens when the blogosphere explodes into the “real world” and shit gets “real”? This remix is what happens. I met the talented Alvin Risk back in October after playing with the Jamaica gang at Webster Hall where I introduced him to the guys who said they would love the Alvin Risk remix touch on their next single “Jericho” – fast forward to today, here is the final product. It is a dancefloor revision of a straight-forward pop rock song that will make you dance quite hard and sing along at the same time. I especially love how he turned the intro into an epic bridge.

Pick up the entire Jericho EP which also features a remix from the one and only Todd Edwards.

Spank Rock x Todd Edwards

I return from the real world to the blogosphere with this gem from the one and only Todd Edwards. It was al ovely surprise to see Todd this past Friday in the crowd at Jamaica’s show at Webster Hall in NYC especially with such kind words, it was definitely a reverse bizarro world blogosphere/IRL experience. Todd strikes back with an amazing remix of my favorite Spank Rock songs, “What It Look Like”, a tune that is included in the massive Ninja Tune XX Box set. He mixes it up by throwing in a different drum pattern, rather than his signature 2-step garage pattern which really gives an great vibe to the track.

Asian Dan Presents Classic House Tracks According to the Word of Todd: Lil’ Louis “Club Lonely”

Sponsored by Scion

Here is the 2nd installment in ” Classic House Tracks According to the Word of Todd” by the one and only Todd Edwards. This week it is a track by the Chicago-House DJ/Producer pioneer, Lil’ Louis.

[audio:http://diestruktur.com/asianmandan/music/Todd%20Edwards/lil%20louis%20-Club%20Lonely.mp3]
Lil’ Louis – Club Lonely

Lil’ Louis is an extremely innovative producer. His track “French Kiss” was a very deep house track which slowly went down in tempo until the whole track came to a complete stop, while a woman simultaneously is moaning to a point of climax. It sounds even better than it reads. Even though that was a ground breaking track, it is his other brilliant work that inspired me.

The track is called “Club Lonely” It starts out with a deep bassline and synth chords. Then another layer of synth chords come in complimenting the first. Then, a saxaphone pattern comes in on top of that. And if that weren’t enough, a beautiful song on top of that. But the peak of this song is the chorus. The harmony that was created for the chorus is one that inspired me like no other. I definitely learned to layer music from this song. If you listen to my Sunshine Brothers work, you will here some of that influence, especially “Like A Fire”.
