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...
