Music find of the day: Akabu feat Alex Mills “Everybody Wants Something” Joey Negro Strip Mix

I don’t have to say much about this track – just enjoy smooth vocals, really nice old-school beats and synths!

This new track from Akabu features the soaring neo soul croons of Alex Mills (who you might recognize from Miguel Campbell’s ‘Something Special’).

The Joey Negro Strip Mix is unashamedly feel-good with its bouncing, skewed and spraying synths and driving bassline, with pristine production putting many imitators to shame.

Released: 1st April 2013

Whitney Houston
Cover of Whitney Houston

Am I lucky or what, second day in a row I find a remix to Whitney Houston’s songs. Whitney Houston + Deep House = So much love! 🙂

I just couldn’t be happier! 🙂



“Love Will Save The Day”

Sometimes life can make you crazy 
It can really put your body to the test 
You try so hard to make sure everything goes right 
And you find you’ve only wound up with a mess 
It’s a common situation 
Even though you feel abandoned and alone 
Child, you ain’t the first to experience the hurt 
So don’t panic when you hit the danger zone 


What you need’s a little change of heart 
Forget this fear and frustration 
Love will always play the greater part 
When your battles wear you down 
Here’s my advice – 
When you’re feeling down and out 
And you’ve got troubles on you mind 
Love will save the day 
When you’re feeling full of doubt 
And fear has got you in a bind 
Love will save the day 
When your worlds falling apart 
All you have to do is say a prayer 
And love will save the day 
There’s an answer in your heart 
So let your light shine on my dear 
And love will save the day 
Love will save the day [X4]

Many things in this world bring you down 
It’s a wonder you can make it through the day 
Well, you can’t sleep cause your problems are to deep 
And there’s always something getting in the way 
And when you turn on the evening news 
Mass confusion is the only thing you see 
Well there’s no question that we need a new direction 
Cause we all could use some peace and harmony 


Love is gonna save the day 
You’ve gotta believe it

Duke Dumont feat. Jax Jones - I Got U - 1happyblog

Whitney Houston is and always will be a legend to me. I admire her voice and rebirth of her “Your love is my love” in this amazing house arrangement is an awesome gift. I love both the original version and the remixes and MK’s remix is one of my favorites.

Tune of the day: Oliver $ & Jimi Jules – Pushing On

Loving this new track recently released by Defected Records. I admire old-school beats and soft vocals.

Following the success of their ‘Earl’ EP on Switzerland’s Hive Records, Berlin-based House staple Oliver $ reunites with Swiss Jazz House aficionado Jimi Jules to bring their anticipated debut release on Defected. ‘Pushing On’ opens with an infectious percussive medley composed of tropical triangles and melodious 808-like cowbells. With the gradual introduction of the moody, Frankie Knuckles inspired, bass line and tailing piano chords, the track slowly transforms into an energetic homage to classic Chicago House. Quick to take centre stage the track also features dusky vocal samples from Quantic Soul Orchestra, merging effortlessly with the wispy cymbal crashes, the song’s title and central lyrical theme, “Pushing On”, falls and confidently rises to drive the track to its spirited climax. And for those who don’t want the vocals there’s a dub thrown in for good measure. Already household names in their home countries, ‘Pushing On’ is sure set to solidify Oliver $ and Jimi Jules as international House providers.
