Rufus & Chaka - Live In Me (Touchsoul Edit)




In my opinion, one of the best tracks these done while together, a top track from the Masterjam album. For me it's all about the background harmonies at the end of the track and great mid tempo groover. Here I've slightly extended it at the intro and end as for me, 3 and half mins is too short with this one. To download click divshare logo...

Loose Ends - Nights Of Pleasure (Touchsoul Edit)


This is a personal favourite of mine which I've given a little reworking to, ommiting most of the vocal and smoothing out the already sublime groove. From the great 1986 album 'Zagora'.

Hot Toddy - Summer Daze



Been a while since I've posted anything other than my own edits/reworks so thought I'd hit y'all up with something from almost 4 years ago which I've been re-listening over again on vinyl. This is my personal favourite from this EP from the great Hot Toddy on Winding Road.

My Favourite Disco - Touchsoul Edit



A personal favourite of mine from, in my opinion, one of the best 70's era disco albums, "Time Is Slipping Away" by Dexter Wanzel which is 'I'll Never Forget (My Favourite Disco). Edited/stretched out the into/outro and removed some vocal. This was done for personal use with intention of playing at one of our events that got cancelled...

Universal Love - Touchsoul Edit



Edit of Woods Empire's 1981 soul funk number. Sure elements of this have been used/sampled in a previous production...but here's my version with the usual crude treatment...

Feelin' Hot - TouchSoul Edit



Another personal edit I've decided to share. Just a dubbier rework of Futura's boogie funk number, 'Feelin' Hot'. Ive edited the vocal version from the vinyl rip..so has a few crackles & pops, omitting some vox and lengthened out the amazing bass funk groove with the usual tweaks...
