Berlin's Marcus Liesenfeld aka DJ Supermarkt is on a roll at the moment. Following his excellent edits of I Wanna See You Dance by Andy Pratt and Capsule by Michael Nesmith, we now have his take on this track by Jaye P. Morgan, the eclectic singer and controversial panellist on The Gong Show (and guest on The Muppet Show). 'Let's Get Together' is from Morgan's brief Westcoast phase in 1976 and her self-titled album featured a host of LA AOR legends such as Bill Champlain, David Foster, Jeff Porcaro and Lee Ritenour.

It's been a busy week since I got back from D.C. and I finally had a minute to record a few tracks to share here. I had a great time out there, got a chance to look at records almost every day of my visit, saw the Earcave in person, and got to meet the Beautiful Swimmers. The cherry on top of the trip was a private show from George Smallwood in his home a few hours before my return flight. Som Records is the best shop in D.C. I loaded up a healthy stack of twelve inches including many local go-go funk records that are obviously everywhere in their home town but a bit harder to find here on the west coast. Here are two of my favorite local finds. Master Jam released two singles on local D.C. micro label 2nd To None. "Celebrity Funk" is a cool vocoder instrumental on the one-off DOC label.Master Jam - Freak With YouChris Thomas - Celebrity Funk (instrumental)

Unearthed a remix I once did for popular 1980s Italian HI-NRG singer Drake (nee Aubrizzio Driaggio Grahamino), best known for coining the Italian phrase "si vive una volta sola" (YOLO) and for his role as "Jimmy di Sedia a Rotelle" in the RAI-Italia afternoon special Scuola DeGrazzio. Ripped from a 1985 German 12" Maxi Single version. ---Follow me on Twitter: twitter.com/djaptone

Well the utterly hateful northern wind has officially picked up in the upper tip of Europe, and to combat this my response is to always try to buy more music so as not to go completely batshit crazy while cooped up indoors. First up in this erm, series: the fourth instalment in the stellar Rack and Ruin line, a great imprint run by Evil Kneil out of Manchester. We've picked up most of the previous records in this series over the past year or so and can attest to the carnage they can do to a floor at the right time. This one ain't no exception believe you me. This time the mysterious white label edit series invites the talents of local Manchester duo Out Of The Basement, aka Steve Leggat and James Ellis - both of whom have been involved in the city's thriving music scene for some time. Two tracks up for grabs here, as is the case with all these releases, and to be honest it's really only about the first tune for us - a killer edit of lovely Lyn Christopher's 'Take Me With You'. The Basement boys toss the old forgotten classic feelgood soul cut in the proverbial blender, settings to chop, blend, oomph and *bing*, voila - a seriously bonkers dance verison set to rock the pants off any attendees within stick-shaking distance of the dancefloor. This is what we call one of those AATB tracks. All. About. That. Bassline. And Lyn's vocals too of course. On the flip we get an edit of the Brother's Johnson version of Shuggie Otis' 'Strawberry Letter 23'. This edit is really ace, yes - an elasticized and dubbed to hell version of the original. However good it's been re-visited numerous times, most famously for us by either Dane or Eddie C on Common Edit or Seven Inches of Love, not sure which. In any case this A side is really tickling our pickle at the moment, and we really think you should snap up a copy of the record. 300 for the world so they won't last long. Still available at most of the haunts, or barring that some discogs shops/sellers have a few copies at normal prices HERE.

Detroit's J Feathers, the man behind our popular 'soft-prog' series Light Departures, returns to keep the summer dream alive with this excellent mix of deep 1970s AOR/Westcoast, late period Krautrock, and the smooth and catchy side of progressive rock. Prog-yacht if you will. Or maybe not. In any case, as J Feathers says, it's "music for a hot day when there's nothing you can do but sit in the pool (or any body of water if there's not a pool within reach). Keep sailin'!"" cool in the pool - holgar czukay call me - starbuck my innocence - laura nyro throw me a line - bob weston no deal - lyons & clark sinbad - grimaldi/zeiher don't ask - 10cc you make me smile - camel she's not in love - larsen/feiten band gimme the goods - boz scaggs the way i feel - adrian gurvitz it could be trouble - nielsen/pearson touch of tequila - curved air step by step - alan parsons project more - matthew larkin cassell when love disappears - robbie patton show me your love - greg guidry why i came to california - leon ware france - grateful dead crackers - focus i want more - can download
